This judge is going hard on Teen Mom Amber Portwood. I can’t say I blame him, but I don’t necessarily agree either.
Amber has been in a world of trouble lately, most recently with a drug arrest. The Indiana judge ruling in her case gave her a plea deal which gets her out of jail, but off of Teen Mom.
TMZ reports that ,
Amber has been ordered to live in a halfway house for up to 3 years and get a court approved 9-to-5 job that she must attend at least 5 days a week.
Teen Mom will not count as having a job, and more importantly Amber is banned from taping while in the halfway house. Being she must live in the halfway house for up to three years and maintain a court approved 9 to 5, that puts her reality career on hold.
The judge did ask that MTV not sue Amber for breach of contract, and they agreed.
While I can see where the judge is coming from, I think that it is a bit drastic. Unfortunately no one banned Lindsay Lohan, who has been in a lot more trouble than this chick. And Amber has a kid, so making that kid money is very beneficial to her and the child. I don’t think that banning her from taping Teen Mom is going to make that much of a difference. The girl has had drug issues for a while and just needs to get her life on track.
I wish her the best and I hope she cleans up and does a nice update with MTV in a few years.
