Amber Portwood

SEND ME TO PRISON!!!

After several months of unsuccessful drug treatment, "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has completely given up on herself -- and has now asked a judge to send her ass to prison ... once and for all ...TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Amber was sentenced to 5 years in the big house back in January for drug possession -- but the judge gave her a second chance, offering to vacate the sentence if she successfully completed a drug rehab program.

Amber has repeatedly struggled to meet the requirements of the program, and has now given up entirely -- straight up asking the judge to impose her original 5-year prison sentence.

Amber fessed up today in court, telling the judge she hasn't stayed clean since starting the program -- and will always be a "bad girl." Amber's lawyer stood by in shock as this unfolded, shaking his head the entire hearing.

Amber said she couldn't stand the drug court program and wanted out ASAP -- leaving herself one alternative ... prison.

Amber's currently on her way to Madison County jail in Indiana, where she'll remain until her sentencing in a few weeks.

Prison doesn't do anybody any good, ever. She's too stupid to know that.

I think this is a positive turn of events. This may honestly be what she truly needs in the end and I'm happy she is realizing that. Some people need to hit rock bottom.

I can't believe this stupid *itch doesn't care any more about her baby. It's people like her that are the reason we need mandatory sterilization for people below a certain IQ!!!

People like this don't learn until they face real consequences for their stupid choices. Giving them chance after chance only enables and encourages their idiocy. Good riddance.

How pathetic. It's not that hard to be a straight and narrow law abiding citizen, especially when you have $$ to support yourself from MTV. Not to mention, a precious child to live for. Amber is a loser and belongs in prison if she can't make this work. I just wish that baby Leah could be adopted into a good family. I worry for her future.

Well, at least the only positive thing is that she can own up to her sh-t.

Of course she wants to go to prison, she won't need any cash, tax payers can pay her way for 5 years.

She couldn't stand the drug court program and thought that PRISON would be a better choice? Way to put your child's well being first, Amber! Maybe you'll get out in time for her elementary school graduation. What a POS.
