Amber Portwood Joins Twitter

Amber Portwood

Amber Portwood has joined the Twitter universe. Although it might not seem like much, Amber has been one of the few girls from the 16 & Pregnant franchise to stray away from virtually all social media accounts, and the fact that she made it through her 16 & Pregnant episode, four seasons of Teen Mom, and a catch up special without an official Twitter account is a miracle in itself. Most of the girls that are on the upcoming season of 16 & Pregnant already have Twitter accounts and Facebook pages with thousands of followers, and their episodes haven't even aired yet.

Amber Offers Advice

Since Amber has been out of prison, she's remained relatively quiet. She made an appearance on Dr. Phil, and filmed for Being Amber, but has strayed away from most media publicity. In the March 4th issue of In Touch Magazine, Amber revealed some advice that she had for a fellow Teen Mom girl, Jenelle, and her comments still seem pretty level-headed, which is still such a change from what we saw of Amber on Teen Mom.

Being Amber: Recap

The episode starts on the day that Amber is released from prison. Amber spent 17 months behind bars, and on the first day out, she gets to reunite with her family. Her mother, brother, and nephew go to jail to pick her up, and they head off to a restaurant where Amber orders more food than I've ever seen anyone order, and she even orders a chocolate shake on top of it. Honestly, I can imagine I would crave real food if I was stuck in jail for that long too.

Being Amber: Sneak Peek

US Weekly has an exclusive clip from Sunday's Teen Mom special, Being Amber, and it definitely shows a lot of emotional struggles that Amber has been dealing with since getting out of prison.

Since Amber Portwood's release from prison in November, she's kept relatively quiet regarding her personal life, which I would say is a smart thing to do. She has stayed away from social media accounts, and seems to be doing much better than she was when we saw her on Teen Mom. She did appear on Dr. Phil last month, where she talked about her struggles to get sober before her prison time, as well as being high on nearly every episode of Teen Mom that we watched.

(Radar Online) Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was sprung from prison on Nov. 4 after serving 17 months of a five-year drug sentence -- and now she's finding support from ex-costar Farrah Abraham. Speaking exclusively to,Abraham said jailbird Portwood should have never gone to prison and slammed her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, as being a bad influence. "I'm happy Amber is out if jail, she never deserved to be in jail," Farrah said.

"Gary antagonized Amber while she was also dealing with stress and handling her bipolar disorder.

"I hope Amber can now stay away from the pressures of the media and focus on her new, healthier beginning at life. I hope Leah (her daughter) can have a loving mother and daughter relationship."

Amber Is Still Out Of Prison

The Daily Mail is apparently keeping close tabs on Amber, but it appears they are running out of things to say. If you missed the huge image at the beginning of the article, they went on to describe in detail what Amber and her mother were wearing while shopping. For good measure, we were also treated to what Amber was looking at while shopping. Very riveting stuff here. It's stuff like this that makes me look bad (not that I needed help with that). I should be the one sitting in the bushes taking pictures of Amber and her mother. I guess I'm just a slacker blogger, but you knew that already.

I like to be a little misleading with my titles, but don't get excited, that's just a friendly peck on the lips from Amber to her mom. Granted, I haven't kissed my mother like that since about 3 years old, but I also didn't just spend a year in prison.
