Amber Portwood Doing Well In Prison

Amber has been through so much these past couple of years, right now we are watching her go through her first stint in Rehab on Teen Mom. After cameras stopped rolling Amber fell back on a bad path and ended up in jail. She was given a chance to complete a court drug rehab program but chose to go to prison for her 5 year sentence instead. 

She is now sober and taking steps to get life back. She is about to start classes for her GED and drug abuse. OK! Magazine quoted her brother Shawn stating: "She's surprised at how well she is doing. She likes being completely clean and sober. It's good that she's there because she has a new level of focus and commitment she couldn't get on her own." 

Amber is estimated to be in prison for around 2 years and then hopefully get out on parole. Gary recently sent her a care package and said that she has received some letters from fans and that she appreciates them very much!

  3. Just my opinion but the last person that needs to be sending her care packages is Gary! He doesn't seem to "care" for her as much as he wants to control her.

    1. Its not his fault shes in this position, her life if you watch the show hasnt been easy. It stems back before she even had a baby so young. We all need to take responsibility for our OWN actions & I believe she is doing that.

  5. Gary needs more help than Amber!

    Here are his three last tweets:
    Party at the condo whose coming?
    1 arm stripper omg
    The 1 next to her is pregnant. It's like awesome haha

    Even if these tweets were jokes they would not be funny. I can not believe he thinks it is appropriate to post these messages for all to see. How would he feel if one of those ladies was Leah, or even Amber?

    Gary needs his head checked.

    They should have let Leah be adopted. That poor kid.

    1. Butthurt much? It was obviously a joke. People can joke around can't they? Last I checked there wasn't a law forbidding someone to joke around over a social networking website or even in reality. Seriously, come on now. You people find the dumbest little things to turn into the worst. I think you are the one that needs your head checked, this is what is wrong with our world, people take such small things and turn them around to make them seem like the world is ending. Ignore it. I can't believe you feel that Gary needs more help than Amber all because of some stupid little "tweets" If that's the case, then Amber must be a saint in your eyes.

    2. If you think those tweets are in any way appropriate then YOU need YOUR head checked.

      Gary is a retard. He should not have a child in his custody.

      And Amber's issues may be more outward, but Gary might actually be more messed than she is. Gary has major issues.

    3. Gary is a pretty good dad he just is very immature at times. Well... a lot of the time.

      Delete
    4. Anyone that says Gary is more messed up is on some serious crack with amber...Just because someone has a child doesn't mean that cuts them off from havin a good time and joking around. You have some real issues..you should take a step back and look at all the shit that Amber has done, yet he is still doing nice things for her by sending her care packages, in my opinion gary should take leah and get the hell away from amber, she is nothing but trouble and leah doesn't need to grow up seeing that. You are ridiculous to be saying that he's so horrible because of dumb little tweets...to be honest you don't even know that he could be sitting at home watching tv with his friends and those could be all jokes.

    5. ive seen the shows since day 1 and i feel that amber abused Gary. Gary is doing what he has to do for his daughter. unlike amber she set there argued in front of her daughter and kicked garys butt. people have nothing better to do with there life. its crazy how he is still trying to be a father and still be ambers hubby. after everything that went down. amber needs helps and she is getting it. im happy for her....

    6. So what you are saying is that Amber is the problem but Gary keeps making the decision to be around her, putting himself and Leah in danger.

      "Those could all be jokes" - even if they are jokes, they aren't even slightly amusing.

      He still doesn't seem to be working, spends money like a drunken sailor, has problems with stability, is obese and getting more so (notice he has stopped tweeting about healthy foods and the gym?)... The list goes on. The guy has almost lost his licence due to immaturity...

      Has he tried to be a dad? YES. Because it makes HIM feel good (yet he gives her up ALOT to go out and party. If it was a teen mom people would have been pointing fingers non stop).

      The thing is, he is trying to be a dad, but that isn't what is best for Leah. Leah should have been adopted by a family that could have taught her social limits, what real love is (instead of voilence and being ignored while Dad goes to get fast food before her birthday after his big drunk the night before) etc.

      Just because Gary stuck around doesn't mean he is an awesome Father. I don't think he is the worst father out there, but I do think Leah would have had a better life if Amber and Gary had chosen adoption for her.

      Have you noticed that even the bromance with Evan has started to cool? Wonder why?

      Gary is immature. I don't think he is capable of doing any better than he is right now.

      Poor Leah. Hopefully Amber can get things together, but even then, there has been so much damage done.

    7. Ok... The person that says it's ok for Gary to go out and party, What would you be saying if it was Amber partying all the time? That it's ok? I don't think so!

      Delete
    8. I think Gary pushed Amber's buttons. Amber is totally needs to own her behaviors and reactions, but Gary eggs her on.

      Delete
    9. REALLY????? As I agree maybe not all appropriate but what is he doing thats illegal? Many parents go see strippers or have them at parties. It doesnt make him a bad father. You need your head checked if you think he is worse off than Amber. She has mental issues, anger issues and drug addiction. Watch the show alittle more or maybe read some truth. FYI FB & Twitter posts are managed by other people.

      Delete
    10. No their twitter posts Are NOT managed by other people FYI! Every teen mom cast member has their twitter verified and has admitted they don't have anyone else run their twitters. Now fb official fan pages yes do get YOUT facts right.

    11. i think amber and gary both need help. they both have some issues
      and yes i do agree that the baby should of been given up for adoption. she should go to a home that had no drama like this.

    1. I agree- I think its nice that fans want to send her mail, but prison is no joke and it will only get her more attention by other inmates. She is probably already not liked very much and fan mail isnt going to help... its sad but true

  7. and she wonders why leah never wants to talk to her or be around her. probably because she doesnt even recognize her own mother.

    1. That's not true, Leah loves her and she loves Leah and that is pretty obvious to me. Amber needs this and she needs to get herself under control now so that she has more time with Leah in the future.

    2. Thats so rude, amber chose to go to prison to better herself even if it meant having to be away from her daughter, she wanted to be clean and she knew rehab wasnt working for her. Its not like she chose prison to get away from leah, I bet it breaks her heart being away from her. It was obvious the love amber had for leah she just couldnt get herself together on her own and gary was no help, he would only make it worse with the things he would tell her. I really hope amber is able to come out quick and 110% better. I wish her all the luck in the world. She will be a great mom.

    3. I do hope Amber gets better, but I don't think she will ever be a great mom. I don't think she has the capacity for it.

      I do wish her all the best, but I hope she doesn't have any more children.

      Delete
    4. Chose prison to better herself? Wow..she chose to go to prison because she couldnt handle life..being away from the world is so.much easier than dealing with issues..she does not deserve to have be a parent when she is still a kid..drugs? Come on now, she should have let that go once leah came in the world..just shows whats more important

      Delete
  8. People are so terrible. Amber is doing great and when she gets out she is going to be a better mother and a better person. I can't believe people are turning such a positive article into something negative. It is sad that it had to come to this but she did what she felt she had to do to get clean and it's working. Great job Amber!! I have faith in you!

  9. What she always needed was structure. Living a life without a job to go to or classes to take doesn't leave much motivation to get up in the morning, and that just snowballs into more depression and drug abuse. I was right there with her when I was 19 - 20 (minus the drugs). As awful and inexcusable as her actions have been, it sucks that the really important, transitional years of her life have been put into utter chaos with not only a child to take care of, but the screwball lifestyle of cameras and fame. If she is finding a structured environment in prison, then hey, more power to her.

  10. Who believes she's going to get her GED? Ever...?
    I don't.
    Yeah, she has problems, yeah, she struggles, yeah, addiction is a kind of disease, but damn it, she doesn't have her GED because she's LAZY.

  14. I dont think anyone knows what goes on in their personal lives and need to mind your own business...no one is in her shoes and unless you are you have no room to talk..so get a life and worry about yourselves

  15. Just my opinion Amber should have chose rehab, because that means five years away from Leah. I don't think it was a good choice she made.

    1. I'm really sick of the misconception that she "chose jail over rehab". It was all because that's how TMZ incorrectly labeled their article, and they were the first ones to break the news so every other news article said the same thing.

      She was NOT in rehab. She did not choose rehab over jail!!! She didn't really CHOOSE anything. She was in DRUG COURT. Very different from rehab. She relapsed and told the court straight up instead of getting caught in a failed drug test. The consequence of relapsing while in drug court is prison. She just went and told the judge that she failed and that it was time for her to go to jail. She didn't wait to get caught. TMZ really sent the wrong message with their headline.

  16. I really didn't like her at first but she's gotten way better and I think that everyone is being so hard on her I will be sendin letters of encouragement to her and tellin her how much I like her now she is trying to better her life and if rehab didn't work the first time then y would it work the second Time

  17. What i Dont Get Is Why Tf..? Would She Choose To Go TO Prision.. Instead Of Rehab... Thats Dumb Af.. She Obviously Didnt Think Of Leahh..

  18. I wish Amber the best and hope she sticks to her recovery once she is released. I think amber's childhood had a lot to do with the problems she ia having as an adult i think her and gary r great parents when they want to be everyone has problems who r any of i to point the finger at either of them just remember when u point your finger at someone there is 3 fingers pointing back at you. Goodluck amber in your sobriety ur taking all the right steps. And goodluck to Gary he is trying his best to raise leah he is doing the best any father could do i can't imagine how tough it is for him especially without amber around so give the guy a little credit god people grow the hell up!
