Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood got out of prison on Monday after being locked up for 17 months, and there were two things she needed to do ASAP: get a burger and see her daughter, and in that order too.
Immediately upon release, Amber hauled ass to the nearest burger joint for some “real food” (her words, not mine). After satisfying her craving for an all-beef patty, she headed over to ex Gary Shirley’s house, who’s also the father of four-year old Leah. Presumably, she fought any urges to beat the crap out of him, and focused on the happy reunion with her daughter. Photos of the mother-daughter duo show them smiling and laughing as Leah sits on Amber’s lap.
Right now, Gary has full custody of Leah, but sources say that Amber is ready to be a real mom again and will make a move for shared custody very soon. I don’t know much about custody cases, but I would think that might be a tough battle for the ex Teen Mom. She’s a repeat drug offender with a history of violence, and even though she was on good behavior in prison and was able to earn credit to reduce her sentence, she’s still Amber Portwood. And that’s going to be difficult to overcome.
However, Amber says she is drug-free and going to stay that way, and her brother Shawn claims she’s a changed woman just waiting for her opportunity to prove it to the world. In the meantime, the 24-year old will be on parole for an unspecified period of time, during which she will also be subject to random drug screening.
I know we’re all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens next in the life of Amber Portwood, but we must be patient. Time – and her parole officer – will tell if she has really changed her ways.
So what do you think? Should Amber get custody of Leah? Any bets on if or when she violates her probation? Tell us in the comments!
