Teen Mom Star "Doing Well" After Suicide Attempt

Glad to hear it!

Earlier this week, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood sadly tried to take her own life by hanging herself in her home. She's been in the hospital since then, but according to sources, she is making progress.

Reportedly, the "very depressed" young mother is still unable to speak to anyone after the damage done to her vocal chords. However, she is "doing well" and it looks like she will recover fully.

Poor thing. She's gotten a lot of guff since Teen Mom started and she's made mistakes, but she shouldn't have hurt herself. There's always a better way.

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

    You have to get this shit straight you fucking drama queen. She was found with a noose around her neck or unconcious(sp), she had a rope and was threatening to kill herself, and said she took some pills. She went to the hospital under her own power. Translated, this was a cry for attention, quit being such a fucking drama queen.



  2. 2

    You were one of the worst people to try and bring her down and make fun of her. I hope you learned a lesson here.



  3. 3

    lol



  4. 4

    It's a shame that people have to nearly kill themselves to eke a few kind words out of you.

    Re: hoochpit – Wow. My sister too used to threaten suicide and everyone thought she was doing it for attention and was being a drama queen. Until she successfully killed herself 3 years ago. It's people like you who ignore that another person is depressed and accuse them of doing it for attention who put suicidal people over the edge. People, if someone you know even THINKS about suicide please, do your best to take them very seriously and get them help.

    Well FatBoy successfully murdered Brittany Murphy and Simon. He came very close this time. Ill give him this he's better at it then any one else I know of.



  7. 7

    She didn't hang herself. Do you do ANY research? She said she took a bunch of pills and was hardly conscious, and they found a rope around her neck while she was lying on the couch. How she was planning on hanging herself while she was on the couch, I dunno. Guess the drugs kicked in before she got that far.

    OOPS forgot about Anna Nicole, He killed her to.



  9. 9

    "She's gotten a lot of guff since Teen Mom started…" Right, and you Perez had nothing to do with that. You were always ragging on her. Fuck you.

    Re: Still_very_much_a_BULLY – What are you talking about??



  11. 11

    Wow, she needs to get her shit together. She has a little girl who she claims to love so much, then tries to kill herself. Doesn't she realize what damage that will do to her daughter?



  12. 12

    One thing is for sure: If you want to die, you will die and make sure that you do.



  13. 13

    I am so tired about hearing about these stupid women and their illegitimate children. Why is she even on the site? She's not a celebrity, she's a nobody; there are so many more interesting people out there who actually do good in the world.



  14. 14

    Who cares about this trashbag? It's all for attention and if it's not, her daughter will be better off.



  15. 15

    She was obviously doing this for the sympathy and/or attention. The noose around the neck was just for nice dramatic effect. She's on prescription pills constantly, she knew what she was doing and she knew she wasnt gonna die. Feel sorry for her poor daughter, that poor child will never have a chance at a good upbringing with this piece of trash in her life



  16. 16

    I think this dumb girl just wants more attention, I can see a magazine cover coming out soon. I dont watch these show. Why promote show like that.



  17. 17

    who cares… she should have died. her kid will be better off without her.



  18. 18

    @calicoyote, her daughter will be better off? she may not be the best mom in the world but that's a horrible thing to say about someone who can hardly defend themselves.



  19. 19

    I hope that she is able to get herself onto the right road for her daughter's sake.



  20. 20

    None of these moms were fit to have children. Amber has stated EVEN TO THE GREAT DR> DREW who did nothing(surprise). SHe hated herself, she was depressed and had no self worth….THank God she is raising a child. Can we get this girl some help….caliing Mtv



  21. 21

    Who cares?! There are many pregnant teens who have kids and no cash. I don't feel sorry for her.



  22. 22

    WOW! You bitches are giving Perez wayyyy too much credit hahahahaha



  23. 23

    what a selfish bitch! how could you do that to your daughter and family?



  24. 24

    You "wish her the best" when you have sat here for the last year and bashed her and called her a horrible parent? I'll use your favorite word here and say that's "deplorable." Hypocrite.



  25. 25

    Re: immolate – Well she IS a horrible parent! Dramatic, negligent, and let's not forget abusive!! Why MTV is exploiting this obvious mentally ill person is beyond me!



  26. 26

    You're hypocritical because you sit here and trash talk her [and many others] but when something happens you act like you've been nice to them from the start. Before, all you do is call her a teen slut and a whore and a bad mother but now you are all nice about her. I am not a fan of her but I don't trash talk her on the internet and insult her as a mother, then be all sweet and caring. Didn't your mother tell you "If you don't have something nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all" ? If she did, you wouldn't have this site.



  27. 27

    It's very tragic that she did not end up actually dying. Her daughter would be much, much better without her. She is a terrible mom, and as far as I can tell, a completely worthless human being who is unable to do anything for herself. Hopefully she'll read try harder next time.



  28. 28

    Amber didn't try to hang herself-I live in Indiana about a half hour from Anderson-accordign to our news, she was talking about committing suicide which seemed serious enough for others to call the police. She was taken to the hospital and evaluated.



  29. 29

    Re: nikkitrueblue – I also live in Indiana and you are correct. Everything is fabricated with lies. Nothing happened. She went to the hospital on her own terms. She was telling Gary she was going to kill herself to get a rise out of him.



  30. 30

    i agree with those who think its for attention. thats what happens to people who get famous for no reason, they do desperate things to stay famous. she clearly is selfish and has no impulse control. and a few people said if you want to kill yourself for real you do and that is generally true. granted you don't want to assume cause even sometimes the attention seekers make mistakes and go to far and actually succeed.



  31. 31

    I think it's sad that some people aren't taking this seriously. Suicide is not something to be taken lightly. I hope she gets the help she needs and gets well soon. No life is worth losing.



  32. 32

    any time something like this happens its tragic. tragic for her. her family (especially her daughter), friends etc. who cares if its just for attention. still a horrible situation for anyone involved.
    and come on now people who cares if she is just a trashy girl who had a baby on teen mom.. better than hearing about lindsay lohan.

  33. Rjvr says – reply to this


    33

    I think it's sad that people think she's just looking for attention. Everyone thought that about my sister's college roommate, until she successfully hung herself in their suite's bathroom. Suicide affects so many people, so it's not something that should be taken lightly.



  34. 34

    i DEF AGREE WITH A LOT OF YOU, PEREZ IS A BULLY AND I BELEIVE THAT HE HAS A LOT TO DO WITH A LOT OF THE "STARS" DEPRESSION AND DRUGS AND SUICIDE, ALTHOUGH I DONT CONSIDER THIS CHICK A CELEBRITY AT ALL, I DO FEEL SORRY FOR HER DAUGHTER, AND YESSSS I DO THINK SHES DOING THIS FOR ATTENTION, AND NO ONE HERE BETTER SAY NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY COMMENT, I KNOW A REAL "DEPRESSED" PERSON, MY FATHER JUST KILLED HIMSELF A FEW WEEKS AGO WE TRIED TO HELP HIM BUT IT WAS TOO LATE….THIS GIRL JUST WANTS TO GET OUT OF TROUBLE FOR BEATING ON HER BF AND NEGLECTING HER CHILD……SHE NEEDS TO GET A LIFE GET A JOB AND BE A FUCKING MOTHER AND STOP WORRYING ABOUT BEING IN THE NEWS AND MAKING GOOD TV FOR MTV THEY DONT CARE AB OUT U UR FAMILY OR UR CHILD ALL THEY WANT IS RATINGS. AMBER GET UR SHIT TOGETHER GIRL NO ONE CARES ABOUT UR DUMB ASS RAISE UR CHILD AND MOVE ON WITH UR LIFE STOP TRYING TO BE A CELEBRITY BC UR NOT!!



  35. 35

    Perez you seriously got some nerve, you sit here and trash talk this girl for months talking about 'she's the mom of the year' following all your horrid comments and then all of sudden she tries to kill herself and your all 'oh the poor girl feel better' why don't YOU take responsibility for YOUR part in these situations?? You are just as much a bully as all the people you give shit to about bullying. YOU ARE NO WORSE THAN THE PAPARAZZI you talk shit about, you may not be in their faces but you are just as invasive and just as cruel and spread just as much bullshit and then want them to take your "consoling nature" as concern. You are nothing but a trash magazine online, no better than star or the enquirer. How would you like it if trashed who you are daily and then acted surprised when it pushed you to the edge? What if we went digging around all your dirty secrets, embarrassing past, routed out your old skeletons and put them on a website daily AND JUDGED YOU FOR IT! maybe we should do just that, call it "Perez is a hypocritical scumbag.com". Own your part in the papparazzi effect. I used to at least think you were funny when you were an asshole and didn't apologize for it, now your just a fake asshole, bullying these people and then after something happens being like "oh we are so sorry for everything that happened" although you part of the reason, stop being a gossipy hypocritical little bitch



  36. 36

    MTV needs to do he right thing and cancel shows like this and Jersey Shore, among many others. They reward bad behavior just to fill their greedy little pockets. At least change their name from MTV to trashTV. They have very little to do with music anymore. Pathetic and sad.

    While I wasn't her biggest fan on teen mom, I have always felt bad for her. she has always been portrayed very negatively on the show and in the media. yes, her attacking gary was completely wrong, but people should remember she is an average girl who was thrust into the spotlight thanks to the tv show. I hope people give her some privacy and let her get the help she needs so she can better herself and be a better mom to her daughter.
