“Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately. Most recently, she was arrested for domestic abuse, based on footage from the reality TV program that showed the young mother beating the crap out of her boyfriend, Gary Shirley. Now, rumor has it that she’s telling folks that Vivid Video is offering her half a million dollars to star in a porn movie. Vivid, which has put out most of the high-profile celebrity sex tapes of the last few years, has a long history of courting public spectacles for pornos. So what does Vivid say? “We can’t comment on any discussions that we may or may not be having with Amber.” We’re going to take that as a yes. [Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
In November, we reported that the ladies of “Teen Mom” make $60K to $65K per season, which comes out to about $5,000 per episode.

I remember when gossip columns devoted space to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Now we’ve got Amber Portwood, the young woman on “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” who Star magazine says is pregnant with her second baby. Amber is already the mother of a 2-year-old daughter, Leah, with ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Star says she’s dating a cage fighter named Clinton Yunker and “is hoping that the child is Shirley’s nonetheless.”
There’s no escaping the “Teen Mom” girls now. Just admit it: it’s dirt cheap for paparazzi to photograph them, so they are claiming tabloid domination. And while Catelynn and Tyler (who gave their kid up for adoption) are the couple who tug our heart strings, you couldn’t avoid Amber if you tried.
And that worries me. Keep reading »
It’s hard to forget the episode of “Teen Mom” where Amber Portwood kicks out her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, for taking their daughter and threatening to call child services. As he leaves, they get into a big fight. During the scene, Amber gets in his face cursing. She hits him repeatedly, and calls him things like a “fat piece of s**t.” As he retreats down the stairs, she kicks him. The scene was shocking when it aired. And now the police are reviewing the unedited footage. Keep reading »
