Amber Portwood

Judge Deals Crushing Blow

to 'Teen Mom' Career

2/17/2012 10:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_amber_portwood_EX_01Amber Portwood's "Teen Mom" career is teetering on the edge of extinction ... because an Indiana judge has imposed a sentence that makes it next to impossible for Amber to appear on the MTV show anytime soon.  

Portwood was in court yesterday to deal with the fallout of a recent drug arrest -- and hammered out details in a plea deal that will keep her out of the slammer ... as long as she doesn't screw up.

According to law enforcement sources ... Amber has been ordered to live in a halfway house for up to 3 years and get a court approved 9-to-5 job that she must attend at least 5 days a week.

We're told "Teen Mom" will NOT count as a job. PLUS, the judge has banned Portwood from taping any MTV project while staying at the halfway house, working her job or appearing in court. Doesn't leave Amber much room for reality TV.

Also, Amber is not allowed to tape anything while hanging out with any other girls who also live at the halfway house.

We're told the judge reached out to MTV ... and the network assured the court it would not sue Amber for breaking her contract with the show because of the sentencing ... a sure sign they are planning on moving on from her story.

Good! I've never watched this show, but the last thing we need is to glorify trailer trash girls who get knocked up. Nice that the judge is making her get a real job.

This judge should transfer to Southern California. It sounds like he is NOT starstruck. He could hand out some real justice.

She should sue MTV for exploitation.
Highly unlikely I know, but considering how much money they were making off an unstable person, they are somewhat responsible for enabling her downward spiral for their own (MTV's) success.

What exactly did she get caught with? That sentence is ridiculous, you'd think she had molested a child the way they are carrying on. The judge sounds like a self-serving egoist.
Glad she won't be on TV anymore though. Hopefully she can disappear from TMZ now too.
