The 28-year-old reveals that her introduction to pills came very early on in her life with very little information:

“I’ve been partying since I was about 11 years old, that’s the first time I did pills. In Anderson, [Indiana], there’s not much to do. A lot of kids at school, they always brought s— from their house. We didn’t know what much of it was”

Portwood said things continued through age 15, when she started to ‘dabble in partying, hanging out with bad people.’

It was ultimately a snowball effect that brought the reality TV starlet to her lowest point:

“That’s when the pills started coming in, a lot of opiates. In my mind, I think I was just trying to self-medicate at the time, probably very depressed, so it just kind of spiraled out of control. It wasn’t [until] I got pregnant with my daughter Leah that I stopped doing drugs all together ’cause I was so scared of something happening to her. A lot of people don’t even believe me when I tell them that, but it’s the truth”

But even the aftermath of childbirth with Leah, now 9, slowly pulled Amber back into her bad habit:

“Six to seven months after Leah was born, I started taking opiates again, medication for my back for my scoliosis and I got addicted from there”

Thankfully, after a brief stint in jail and a major life turnaround, the momma of two is in a much better place. Since meeting boyfriend Andrew Glennon, the two have welcomed their son James together and seem happier than ever!

Maybe Amber’s transparency will help someone else change their lives, too.

Anna Kendrick On Kissing Blake Lively In ‘A Simple Favor’ & Trying To Give Fans That Lesbian ‘Pitch Perfect’ Relationship!

Minty Fresh!

Anna Kendrick Gets Candid About Kissing Blake Lively In ‘A Simple Favor’!

Anna Kendrick was concerned with one thing when filming her steamy kissing scene with Blake Lively: how was her breath?

Thankfully, both actresses were minty-fresh when they locked lips for their new thriller A Simple Favor, as the 33-year-old explained to PrideSource:

“I mean, all I’m ever thinking about in [kissing] scenes is, who has gum? Who has a mint? And I think Blake is probably the same because I’ve never experienced a guy, searching for gum. So, we were the mintiest, freshest two people to have ever kissed in the history of America.”

Good to know!

Lively may have been the freshest of Kendrick’s same-sex kissing partners, but she wasn’t the first. Kendrick got candid about her own sexuality and admitted to kissing a few women off screen over the years, dishing:

“I definitely — there’s somebody I’m still friends with, and when we met we kissed. This was after high school, and it was the first time I had kissed a girl where it wasn’t just like, we’re at a party and boys are watching! That horrible performance silliness.”

But don’t get too excited, ladies:

“But I think I haven’t had that emotional love for a lady, which isn’t saying it could never happen to me, but I think I’m more of an Emily than a Stephanie.”

She’s emotionally straight! But that doesn’t mean Kendrick isn’t down for a full-on lesbian relationship in her films.

In fact, the actress tried to appease Pitch Perfect fans who wanted her character Becca to be in a relationship with Brittany Snow’s character Chloe by filming an ending where the two actually got together!

She revealed:

“I definitely wanted to have an ending that was a Bechloe ending, and we did shoot one version where Brittany and I tricked everybody into just shooting one that was just the two of us getting together… We knew it was a long shot. It meant so much to us that there was this following around their latent relationship and, yeah, I thought it would’ve been really cool if it would have ended up coming to fruition in the end. If we ever do a [fourth film], I will fight tooth and nail for it, but I’m not sure it’s gonna happen.”

At least we get to see her make out with Ryan Reynolds’ wife when A Simple Favor hits theaters September 14.

Katy Perry Denies Allegation That Dr. Luke Raped Her In Recently Unsealed Deposition

Under Oath

Unsealed Deposition Reveals Katy Perry Denied Claims Dr. Luke Ever Raped Or Sexually Assaulted Her

Katy Perry has denied having any type of intimate exchange — consensual or otherwise — with controversial music producer Dr. Luke.

The Swish Swish singer was deposed about that back in July 2017 as part of Dr. Luke’s ongoing legal battle against Kesha, and now, that deposition has been partially unsealed with the testimony made publicly available.

Related: Dr. Luke Says Kesha Cost Him $50 Million! What?!

In it, the 33-year-old Perry categorically denies all questions about whether the music producer ever raped or sexually assaulted her, which had been a major point of contention in Kesha’s protracted legal battle against the music producer.

Here’s a look at the key portion of the publicly available deposition — with parts redacted, but large chunks of Perry’s key testimony about the issue (below):

Perry, clearly, is very adamant that there was no contact in any manner like that between her and Dr. Luke.

Related: Kesha Stands With The DREAMers!

As for what that may mean for Kesha and another party named in the deposition — Lady GaGa — we can’t say.

Obviously, Kesha v. Dr. Luke has wound its way through the courts for quite a while now, but having this key testimony released to public opinion could create a new, unforeseen stir.

Louis C.K. Returns To The Stage For First Time Since Sexual Misconduct Admission — And Twitter Is PISSED!

Consenting Or Not!

Louis C.K. Performs For The First Time Since Sexual Misconduct Admission

Being part of an admitted serial sexual harasser and dick whipper outer’s sudden career comeback feels like it should be a choice.

That wasn’t the case for audience members at New York’s Comedy Cellar Sunday, who were treated ambushed with a surprise stand up set by Louis C.K., whether they consented or not.

According to the New York Times, the comedian didn’t address the elephant in the room during his first live performance since admitting to sexual misconduct allegations made by five women. Instead, he riffed on topics like “racism, waitresses tips, parades,” said Cellar owner Noam Dworman.

The report stated that the sold-out crowd “greeted him warmly, with an ovation even before he began,” however, one audience member contacted the venue Monday to say “he wished he had known in advance” the Louie star was performing “so he could’ve decided whether to have been there or not.”

Twitter, of course, was aghast over the comedian’s surprise set, which many found to be a bit too sudden given the weight of his actions. Many pointed out that C.K. had done nothing to redeem himself in the 9 months since announcing he’d take a “step back” and “listen” as the #MeToo movement unfolded.

The 50-year-old lost his deal with FX, his movie I Love You, Daddy, and his agent and management after admitting to making female coworkers and comedians watch him masturbate.

As some Twitics put it, being forced to watch C.K. make his comedy comeback without having a choice kind of feels like similar territory.

See the pissed reactions to the comedian’s surprise set (below). 

Do YOU think the comedian deserves a comeback already?

Audrina Patridge Is ‘Stressed’ Over Ex-Husband Corey Bohan’s Reaction To ‘The Hills’ Reboot

Audrina 'Stressed' Over Ex Corey

So Much Drama! 'The Hills' Star Struggling With Vindictive Ex

It just never seems to end for Audrina Patridge.

Once an infamous cast member on The Hills, Patridge (and the rest of ’em — well, except for Lauren Conrad) received great news last week when MTV announced they were rebooting the show!

But behind the scenes, the reboot news has itself become a point of contention between Audrina and her ex Corey Bohan.

Related: Brody Jenner *May* Not Be Around For All This…

According to sources who spoke to People, Audrina is still dealing with issues stemming from her split with Bohan — specifically, co-parenting their two-year-old daughter, Kirra.

Where things get sticky here is the reboot itself: Bohan is NOT interested with Kirra being “exploited” on reality TV, and he’s making life difficult for Patridge as she tries to get back into the TV world.

The source said (below):

“Audrina is stressed that there is still so much drama with Corey. She just wants things to be okay.”

No kidding.

Related: Whitney Port Is So Down To Return!

And yet, Bohan’s supposed central worry — that their daughter will be exploited on TV at a young age — is unwarranted to this point, the source says.

They shed more light on what’s going on now with Audrina:

“They haven’t even started filming the show yet. Audrina hasn’t made any final decisions about whether Kirra will appear. It’s been a really emotional and difficult time for Audrina. But Kirra is her top priority, and she’s trying to focus on the positive.”

So there you go.

Even without Kirra — totally, totally understandable if they decide to keep her away from cameras — we’re sure Audrina’s dramatic marriage & divorce will be a topic of conversation and more on the reboot…

Thoughts, Perezcious readers??

Watch the cute clip, and you be the judge (below)!

ICYMI, he previously said the ring was an engagement gift his wife made:

“We didn’t get secretly married, no, [Cherry] made me this ring out of silver clay, so we were both kinda wearing rings. It also means that nobody will know when we have got married.”

So what’s really going on here?? Is he, or isn’t he??

Mel B’s Rehab Is NOT For Alcohol Or Sex Addiction, Says BFF

Mel B Is 'Not A Sex-Addicted Person'!

Friend Clarifies Rehab News

What’s really going on with Mel B??

The artist formerly known as Scary Spice admitted she was being admitted into a rehab facility, but there seems to be a big discrepancy over why exactly she’s getting help.

Related: Stephen Belafonte Scored BIG In Divorce Settlement

The Sun was told over the weekend she was getting help with “alcohol and sex addiction” — but a friend told People on Monday those were “all lies.”

Gary Madatyan (as seen with Mel just last week above) says it’s all emotional problems:

“Yes, she has some issues she’s working on, but it’s emotional issues stemming from everything she’s been through with her divorce. It’s not drugs or sex addiction at all. [Mel] is not a sex-addicted person.”

He continues:

“She’s in therapy just like any woman who’s been through the kind of marriage and divorce she has. But she’s fine, and she’s working through things. She’s a great mother and a great friend. She just has PTSD. She’s been in treatment for it for the past 4 to 5 weeks.”

We’re glad to hear she doesn’t have substance abuse or… other kinds of abuse… problems, but PTSD definitely sounds serious.

Madatyan isn’t worried. He reassures:

“Yes, she has some stress, but she’s getting help and she’s a fighter — she’s Scary Spice.”

Good point! LOLz!

We love a supportive friend willing to speak on the record like this!
