Amber Portwood used to be a disaster of a mother, but she has since cleaned up her act — the Teen Mom star is now one hundred percent sober! Amber’s recent accomplishments also include a very early release from jail and the publication of a tell-all book. But while she seems to be on solid ground, most of these gains were made away from the television cameras. Will the reality star be able to sustain her recovery following her return to MTV?
Facebook fans are excited about Amber Portwood’s return to television, but some are also questioning her ability to retain a healthy lifestyle while filming Teen Mom. Could reality star life simply be too stressful for the recovering addict?
Amber admits that she initially hesitated when considering the prospect of a return to Teen Mom, but ultimately decided that she was capable of handling the pressure. In a recent interview with Starcasm, she explained, ”I had a bunch of mixed feelings because I personally wanted to make sure that I was strong enough to handle the life again…I believe that I am strong enough to and I’m ready and willing to share the way that my life is now with fans.”
By returning to Teen Mom, Amber hopes to demonstrate that change is possible. The reality star’s dedicated Twitter followers are well aware of the celeb’s remarkable recovery story, but in sharing her journey on MTV, Amber believes she will serve as an even greater inspiration for those suffering from addiction and mental illness.
It’s hard to say whether Amber is capable of handling the pressure, that, arguably, made her turn to prescription drugs in the first place. But one thing is clear: she’s returning to Teen Mom for all the right reasons!
