Authorities Confirm Teen Mom's Attempted Suicide.

| Filed under: Baby BlabberSad SadReality TV


So tragic.

She needs an extraordinary amount of help.

It's been confirmed by authorities that Teen Mom's Amber Portwood, who was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious in her home with a rope around her neck, did indeed, try to commit suicide.

According to a source close to the family, baby daddy Gary Shirley became concerned for her state of mind after the two had a disturbing phone conversation, so he sent her mother to go and check on the reality starlet, which is when she was discovered.

She was immediately brought to the emergency room, where she was stabilized and later admitted to taking a cocktail of pills.

According to the police report:

“Late this morning (11:34 a.m.), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive. According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation. Two policemen arrived, found her face-up on the couch and immediately called for an ambulance. When two EMT workers arrived, they removed the rope that Amber had loosely knotted around her neck. They tried speaking with her, but she was in and out of consciousness and couldn’t respond; she was just moaning. They gave her an oxygen mask, put her on a gurney, and rushed her to the hospital.”

And to think that she was just beginning to put her legal woes behind her…

Such a shame. And that poor baby Leah.

We truly hope that this young woman can get the help that she clearly, clearly needs, and that she can come to realize what a HOriffic, dire mistake taking her life would have been.

Our thoughts continue to be with her, as well as her family, friends, child, and loved ones during this sad time.

    let her die…its better for society and the child….its a win win!

  2. 2

    Who cares?! This chick and her lardass boyfriend are completely worthless. Let them both kill themselves, maybe then there daughter can have a chance to a good upbringing

  3. 3

    Too bad she didn't do it right. Not suprising she's a total fuck up at everything. The kid would be much better off without her around.

  4. 4

    I hope she gets the help she needs, she has had a rough few years, and deserves a chance at a normal life…whatever it is that she has been living isnt normal…this might be the best thing to happen to her, now she can realized what she almost gave up

  5. 5

    WOW! Come on people. They may be worthless, but you really would wish them dead? That's pretty harsh. Somehow the finger , should be pointing at MTV. They've instilled in these teens that its so much more important to be famous no matter what the cost. Whatever happened to Music Television? I mean even when the network was inundated with Rap and crap, it was still music!

  6. 6

    Too bad it was a failed attempt. This stupid bitch will do anything to keep her name in the press. Pathetic. Her child is going to be so messed up when she gets older. That's the real victim here.

  7. 7

    Its unfortunate that TV networks put these young immature minds on TV so they can be mocked and ridiculed by society. These girls already have very little chance to get out of their bad situation but instead of providing schooling and parenting assistance they lure them with the promise of reality TV $$ and fail to advise that everything they do is going to become a tabloid trash headline. If there is a silver lining here it is that she was unsuccessful in her attempt. However saying that she can expect being front page news in the coming days….mocked more..speculated on more. Sad.

    Re: nverforgetsept11 – You have a point. Modern medicine has made Darwinism obsolete. Unfortunately.

  9. 9

    ANYONE wishing death upon someone, who is clearly in need of help, needs to die, period. I hope all of you in here that have the nerve to say such things get what you deserve for being such foul, pieces of sh*t. I mean, someone just tried to commit suicide because they see no end to their mental suffering and all you f*cks can do is mock her? Are you people serious? How awful it must be to be as heartless and stupid as you!

  10. 10

    There goes Indiana's tax dollars!

  11. 11

    Re: nverforgetsept11 – what a bunch of shit. MTV didn't force them to be on the show, didn't force them to take the money and didn't force them to fuck and produce offspring. They saw a chance at stardom and some money. It's called taking personal responsibility for your actions, which far too people actually do these days. Nothing is ever anyone's fault, there's just finger pointing and blaming.
    The only person to blame for this whore hanging from a rope around her neck is her. It's the decision she made and it was a stupid decision. Too bad she didn't get it right. Cuz now there will be more coverage of what a poor little victim she is in the media machine…It's nothing but a load of festering shit.

  12. 12

    Suicide is not the answer. She needs to say goodbye to the lime lights and seek professional help. No child should have to grow up without a mother even if it is Amber who in the past has not been the most perfect mom. I'm rooting for a full recovery.

  13. 13

    I can't wait for how MTV is going to spin this one.

  14. 14

    Ugh! You people are disgusting. How could you with this girl dead? Her life may not be up to your standards, but she's still a human being. That is so heartless and deplorable. How would you like it if one of your family members, someone you cared about did this? This is someone's daughter for crying out loud! She's a god damn MOTHER. Wow, just wow. And YOU Perez, after you called her all sorts of names and said how bad of a mother she was and what a bad person she is NOW you're concerned for her state of mind? You always do this, you pick on people and bully them and post all sorts of nasty things about them and then when they cave and do something like this you act like you feel all sorry and sympathetic. You're just as, if not more so, disgusting as you think this poor girl to be. This is nothing but celebrity fodder for you, you're heartless and you can keep telling yourself that you're not a bully, but you are. You're a terrible person and I refuse to be one of the people who contributes to this website anymore. One day you're going to look around and realize you have no friends and everyone hates you and the only thing you'll be left with is your shitty laptop and you BS gossip rag. I really hope she gets her life sorted out, if not for her sake then for the sake of her daughter who NO ONE seems to be thinking about when they which death upon her!

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – "ANYONE wishing death upon someone, who is clearly in need of help, needs to die, period." Isn't that a little hypocritical?

  16. 16

    Did you really need to add your two cents in by stating it "…a HOriffic, dire mistake…"
    Grow up and get help Mario.

  17. 17

    MTV rating are most important.

  18. 18

    It probably would be best for her kid in the long run if she had succeeded….a certain trial going on in Orlando right now comes to mind about where this one might end up.

  19. 19

    And now time for the Hilton sudden concern and false sincerity.

  20. 20

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – If we are "heartless and stupid" then it would be fair to say that we are in need of help. And since you wished death on us, people who clearly need help, I find your logic to be flawed. "ANYONE wishing death upon someone, who is clearly in need of help, needs to die, period." See, deep down you're really just one of us.

  21. 21

    Perez, you are one of her bullies. How do you feel about your bullying this girl now?

  22. 22

    I don't wish death on her, but I do wish that society would quit watching this crap. Those who do are just as responsible for this girl's problems as MTV is for airing it. It's disgusting and sickening and pathetic and horrid. I can't even begin to know who watches this shit in the first place. Nor can I figure who the minds are behind these types of shows. MONEY MONEY MONEY no matter how wrong or destructive. That's what it's all about.

  23. 23

    wow i cant believe some of you guys…yea she has issues but we all do..some of you should really be ashamed of yourselves its people like you that make people do shit like this in the first place

  24. 24

    MTV you elevate, exploit and profit off of the show and "stars" of 16 and pregnant, I think you should be financially responsible for them too. We taxpayers aren't keen on a bunch of assholes in Hollywood going to the bank while their meal tickets further spiral down the food chain being enabled all the way by you. And on a human level, I find no happiness or joy in a child or anyone being in pain.

  25. 25

    Add one more thing to the list of things Amber Portwood is not good at.

  26. 26

    People who actually want to end their lives usually take extremes measure to do so, like hanging themselves, jumping off high story buildings, and shooting themselves in the head. People who want to garner attention and do not want to really kill themselves, but want sympathy from people, take pills or slit their wrists. So this is just a ploy for attention and sympathy. Either way, she needs help.

  27. 27

    I can't believe some of the comments written on here. Its pathetic how immature people are these days. I don't care how screwed up she is and how many mistakes she's made in her life suicide is NEVER the answer. It was very obvious to me even before the suicide attempt that she needed serious help but now its more clear. People need to stop judging and start doing what they can to help her. If you're not willing to offer support then butt out.

  28. 28

    its not a way to end a life

  29. 29

    Re: J Live – Nice try. The Anthony trial is in Tampa.

  30. 30

    Oh Perez, you think you're holier then thou. All the sudden you feel bad for this girl?! Gimme a break you hypocrite!

    LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP: WTF are you talking about?! You crazy fuck.

    Don't forget there is a child at stake here you fuckers.

  31. 31

    Sad:( Ppl are heartless to go on bashing someone who is very depressed and you dont even know her personally. That just shows the normal attitudes in america seriously….and im freakin american too! Give the chick a break! Hope she gets better and her life straightened out!

  32. 32

    Re: Bunnyness – The Casey Anthony trial is absolutely in Orlando.

  33. 33


    What an ignorant TWAT - it's bad enough when anyone takes their lives and leaves everyone else around them feeling like shit, but to do this when you have a small child is a complete act of cowardice and shows a complete lack of love for her little girl.

    How would the poor kid have felt if she'd succeeded? To know her mom's legacy is that she was a violent loser who ultimately didn't care enough about her to even bother to clean up her act and stick around to be a proper parent.

    She had better lose all custodial rights to the child, and her and the idiot father should combine their collective IQ's and give that child to a family who can show her stability, love, and emotional security.

    MTV must be really proud of the girls their show has produced - it's a social experiment gone terribly wrong, and their producers should do the right thing and stop glamorizing teen pregnancy.

  34. 34

    Oh well …. better luck next time. can't even do that right. loser.

  35. 35

    found "loosely" around her neck. lol total famewhore - i feel sorry for this girl

  36. 36

    Ya Bunnyness, the trial is in Orlando and the jury was picked from Clearwater (AKA not Tampa) nice try.

  37. 37

    Re: afinsf08 – If someone is soo stupid too try and kill themselves over someone else s opinion of them , they really have no business raising a child.Mtv is not to blame for his human filth's problems,its her sub par upbringing that led to her having a baby at such young age , when will people start taking responsibility for there action ??take the child away from them asap otherwise the cycle will repeat.

  38. 38

    To all the people saying she needs help or anyone that is suffering mentally needs help. Your statement is very true but who can afford to get help in America these days who isn't very poor and on welfare or very rich and can pay for it? I called a shrink's office the other day to see about getting "help" and they told me it would be $220 for the first appt. Then they want you to come 3x a week. That's right, all I could say was "Thankyou" and hung up. Don't be so quick to say someone needs help. They may need it but most will never get it. Sad state of affairs but that's the way it is. The Brit's or the Aussies or Canadians probably just don't understand. No, I'm not a left wing extremist. Just someone who is confused with what is found to be acceptable for the working middle class.

  39. 39

    I hope that child has been taken away from that situation. Both parents aren't fit to raise a child and I wish both of them realized it and put the child up for adoption instead of pretty much making the cycle start over.

  40. 40

    Too bad she failed, LOSER! Can't even kill yourself right.

  41. 41

    wow I can't believe how many sick people are on here commenting hoping and wishing she would have died… thats just absolutely disgusting.

  42. 42

    "Our thoughts continue to be with her"

    Please, Mario and Idiot-crew. Your thoughts are never with anyone, let alone "continue" to be with anyone. You just made money on it Pig.

  43. 43

    Like i said on the other post about this, i have huge doubts about how legit this is…..why is she the one telling doctors she tooks pills? if she was in such a bad case the doctors would pump her stomach and say she took this many pills. Why tie a rope around your neck loosely and lay down on the couch as if she's waiting to be found?…like i said i know of famewhores' ways, and od-ing seems to be something that's being used lightly and too commonly amongst these reality stars (i.e fantasia). She really should get help either way, and maybe if shes so affected by w.e it is she wont be back on the show? but of course not, it never works that way, she'll be front cover of magazines giving interviews and back to calling her bf a fatass in no time.

  44. 44

    Dear idiots,
    You know EXACTLY what I meant when I made my statement, but in case you really are this stupid, let me break it down for you. I don't know this girl, none of us really know this girl besides from what we have seen on the "reality" show she is on. Clearly she is troubled, so for any of you jack ass*s to come on here and laugh at her situation or wish her death at a time like this is beyond disgusting. I mean, let's be real, when someone is as disgusting as some of you are, spreading vile and sh*tting out of your mouths, of course you deserve the same treatment that you dish out which is why I happily gave it to you. So yeah, you want to come online and wish people death at a time like this? Then guess what, you should die too for even making such statements to begin with about a person who needs help. Karma is a bitch.

  45. 45

    Anyone who would dare post to wish someone dead I hope you never have to experience the pain that comes when a loved one takes there own life. My best friend since childhood took her own life last summer leaving behind two young children and many other who loved her. She wasn't a teen mom but being a parent at any age is hard and being mom wasn't her reason. Honestly the reasons don't matter cause at the end of the day my life and those of everyone else who loved her will never be the same. It's a loss and a pain that I cannot put into words. Next time you make some anonymous comment on the internet think about what you're saying…words are powerful and karma will find you if not today then 50 years later. I hope Amber gets the help she is clearly crying out for. She is mother, a daughter, a sister, she is not worthless!!!!

  46. 46

    really a Ho joke when talking about suicide? d-bag

  47. 47

    Good, Better for society.

  48. 48

    i am just guessing but given her lack of impulse control…..the sex at a young age, the anger etc…combine with being young and having money you didnt really work hard for, she probably did some serious drugging which doesnt help someone who already seems to have some mental issuess. im glad she didnt die but people are right for putting some blame on mtv

  49. 49

    Wow. I read some of these comments and it really makes me sad that our society has come to the point of wishing someone dead because they are going through a rough patch. Has any of you ever been through something tough? This young girl is dumb, naive and probably bi polar. I feel sad for her, her family and her baby. Just becuase she is those things, doesn't mean she should die. Anyone can rise above, outgrow, overcome…even her. Maybe all she needs is for someone to see good in her - because we all have some good in us - even you people wishing her dead. I ususally never comment because I look at this site for pure humor, but today's post really made me sad for the state of our society because of your hateful, unforgiving and ugly comments. Amber…I'm sorry for you that you felt things were so bad that you wanted to end it all. It's a hard life and people are mean, but it gets better…

  50. 50

    Oh brother… attention, attention, attention. And who says having a baby (instead of doing the RIGHT INTELLIGENT THING, and we all know what that is) at such a young age and having the mental stability of a freaking junkie is a bad idea??!!

  51. 51

    Re: Superhot
    You are absolutely right on this one! "providing schooling and parenting assistance " is exactly what she needed. Unfortunately, our Republican politicians don't see it that way. What they're doing to this country will only lead to more Amber Portwood's breeding ignorance. It's a damn shame!

  52. 52

    cry for attention?

  53. 53

    Wow! I've been censored. I posted that baby Leah would do better being put up for adoption since both of her parents are unstable. post is GONE. So, I guess it's OK to tell someone to suck c0ck on this site but not to be pro USA adoption.

  54. 54

    why would you pray for her? seriously….hasn't she proven she's a super attention whore? she's been pulling crazy stunts to stay in the public eye since her mtv time ran out and i wouldn't put it past her to attempt suicide if it meant more magazine covers.

    she needs help, but not because she's suicidal.

  55. 55

    Borderline personality disorder.

    Any suicide attempt should be taken seriously, whether it's a desperate cry for attention or a serious attempt. To mock or condemn someone for something as serious as this says heaps about you as a person, and those who does, should be ashamed - if that is something they are capable of feeling. That being said, she should not have custody of her child, as it will affect her and lead to serious consequences. Her daughter should be taken care of by someone with the capacity and capability to do so, Amber is not that person - nor is the child's father.

  56. 56

    Re: Master Baiter – I couldn't have said it better myself…

  57. 57

    Oh come on. She told people she was going to kill herself, then took pills and laid on the couch knowing someone was going to come get her. Why did she put a rope around her neck if she was laying on the couch and taking pills?? It is clearly for attention and this girl needs serious mental help!!
