All of you people that can sit there with no souls and say, "maybe she should die" or "publicity stunt" and so forth have sowed your own poison. Something bad will happen to someone you love and maybe your eyes will open and you will learn how to have some decency and respect for human life.

She looks like the transvestite "Devine" from the movie "Pink Flamingo's".

Another site reported she was taking morphine for depression. WHAT??????? How does loosely draping a noose around one's neck while on morphine for emotional pain constitute a suicide attempt. Next thing we know, she'll be on Celebrity Rehab.

Never heard of her. 21? If she was serious, she'd be DEAD. I hope she does it right the next time.

According to MSNBC.com, this uncouth cow had taken pills and then put a noose around her neck. She admitted to the pills when the medical personnel arrived. She's a train wreck and for the sake of the kid, both parents should sign away their rights and allow her to be adopted by a decent, responsible family.

MTV needs to take this show off the air and the media needs to leave these girls alone. It's just sad.

While I love living la vita loca and all that....I just wish that an 89-year-old closeted Jew would COME OUT already! Yeah, the "disgusting homophobic remarks," and all......stop showing up in muscle shirts with your various rainbow boys and your trademark "I'm a lawyer!". It's annoying. You'd suck refuse off the stret if it meant you might get publicity. Vomit.

This pregnant and sixteen show needs to be looked into. They know these families are seriously dysfunctional and they are exploiting them. It's obvious to everyone that there are serious problems. The shows producers should have to set aside a certain amount of money for therapy and parenting classes for these families and not just take advantage of their unfortunate situations.
Everything I've ever read about this girl screamed out that she needed help. What do they do? They throw a bunch of money her way and expect what? Of course the problems will get bigger!! Sad situation, I hope she finally gets the help and guidance, therapy she needs now!!! Shame on MTV!!

I do really feel sorry for Amber. Lots of time people have the "babyblues" after having a child and sometimes it never goes away. It doesn't matter at what age you have a child. You can be an awesome mother at 16 and a poor mother in her mid 20's. Age is nothing but a number so for all of you blaming it on her age are wrong. I really think Amber just needs some help and maybe some parenting classes to help her become the mother she has the potential to be. I know that I do suffer from depression and it is not a funny thing or something to be advertised all over the internet just to get a quick buck. It is a very serious thing and nothing to mess around with and attempting to take your own life is nothing to be advertised about either. People should be ashamed of themselves. Hang in there Amber it will get better. Dont listen to all of the negative people because it will not help your situation.
