Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood Suicide Attempt?

Stop the presses!  Star magazine said something happened, so it must be true!  Wait, what?  According to a few different sources, Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood attemped suicide today.  She was reportedly found on the couch with a rope around her neck and appeared to have overdosed on pills.  It’s no secret that she’s on medication for anxiety and depression, but could she have taken it too far?  The optimist in me says that this is all a fabrication.  It was reported by a representative of Star after all, but with her history, who knows.  I only hope it’s a fake, for her sake and her daughter, Leah’s sake.

A quick follow-up story states:

Although there are reports about a possible overdose of pills and a noose around her neck, Mitch Carroll of the police department tells us “There were no visible signs of injury.” And he also said, “There was nothing to indicate that she had taken pills at the scene.” She was taken to the hospital for observation.

Obviously, everyone knows just about as much as I do, which is nothing.

I wish Amber a quick recovery and hope she gets the help she needs.

16 and Pregnant – Kianna

Kianna Randall is from Ft. Worth, Texas.  She’s 17 and her boyfriend, Zak, is 15.  Kianna wants to go to college to become a Veterinarian, but all that is put on hold when she becomes pregnant.

My thoughts on the episode:

  • Everyone in Texas loves football.  Learn something new every day.
  • Zak looks eerily like someone I went to High School with.  I was like, “Carlos?  Is that you?”
  • Okay, let me get this straight.  He’s 15, she’s 17, they were only together for 2 months before she got pregnant.  She hadn’t taken her birth control in 3 days.  They sound so responsible.
Well, that's a good idea right there.
  • Does anyone else notice how a lot of these teen moms were raised by teen moms?  Most of them seem to have absent fathers too.
  • Kianna’s mother is all mad and preaching to Kianna on how she didn’t want her to be a teen mom.  How hard it is, etc.  I can tell her right that it’s going in one ear and out the other.  When my mother told me that getting married at 19 was a stupid idea, I was all, “But you got married at 18.”  Yes.  I was a brat.
  • Kianna had thought about abortion and is now thinking about adoption.  When she brings it up to Zak, he is completely against it.  He actually refers to it as “the easy way out.”  I don’t know about you, but putting my baby up for adoption sounds like it would be one of the hardest things I could possibly do.
  • They end up deciding to keep the baby, because Zak promised he would help her care for it.  Nevermind that he lives far away and doesn’t have a car or even drive.
  • Kianna has $130 saved up, which she says is enough for 2 boxes of diapers.  I think she needs more practice in pricing things out.  Oh, and she also needs a whole lot more money.
  • Kianna gets induced because she’s at risk for Preeclampsia. A lot of the episode is spent watching her carrying around a jug that she pees into so they can test for it.

  • I just feel like I have to mention this. Kianna has a friend named Pooh.  Now I am dying to know how she ended up with that nickname.
Best. Name. Ever.
  • After Kay’den is born, Kianna is falling all over herself with sleep deprivation, since she’s the only one taking care of the baby.  Zak has to rely on his mother to give him rides.

Teen Mom Season 3 Previews Featuring Farrah and Catelynn

I previously posted the Amber Portwood preview for the third season of Teen Mom and we now have the Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham previews!  We just need Maci Bookout and the gang will be all here!

Not that you asked for it, but here's a little known fact about me: When I first started watching Teen Mom in the middle of the first season, I badly wanted Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra to break up.  Catelynn just rubbed me the wrong way and I have no idea why.  I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that now since I love Catelynn and Tyler together.  They are just so cute.

Okay, enough about me, here are the previews!  If I can dig up the Maci one, I'll post it.

The Official Teen Mom Season 3 Trailer!

Guess what?  MTV has finally put up the official trailer for the third season of Teen Mom!  From the trailer, I can already tell that Maci changes her hair another 47 times and Leah looks pretty much exactly like her dad.  Honestly, the season doesn't look a whole lot different from previous seasons: Amber Portwood is still mean, Gary Shirley is still arguing with her, Ryan Edwards is still hot, and Butch is still hanging around.  I can't wait!

Check out the official trailer here:

Teen Mom Season 3 Preview Featuring All The Girls

Yesterday, I posted the Teen Mom season 3 preview that focused all on Amber Portwood.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find one with Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, or Catelynn Lowell, which was pretty disappointing.  I mean, I like Amber and all, but I want to see the others too!

My prayers were answered today.  I found a preview with all of them!  And I even got to see Ryan Edwards.  Have I mentioned how much I heart him?  Don't judge.

Here's the preview, which is also of crappy quality, just like the one yesterday.  But at least it whets our appetite until the new season starts July 5th!

Teen Mom Season 3 Preview!

A preview for the third season of Teen Mom has been posted.  I don't know if there are going to be any other previews or if they're just revamping the whole show so that it becomes The Amber Portwood Drama Hour.  The only thing that would make it better would be if Gary Shirley wore his Gary Time t-shirts the entire season.  According to the preview, it looks as if it's more of the same for Amber and Gary.  I'm anxious to find out about the other Teen Moms though.  Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, and Maci Bookout will also be returning for a third season, despite rumors that one of them was done with the show.  Who knows…maybe there will even be a Teen Mom wedding!

You can watch the preview that someone recorded off their TV here:

Ignore the fact that it says season 4, unless this person is a time traveler.
