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.

the truth    

sounds like she may not trust herself so she might be thinking prison would be the best thing for her cuz she can get clean. she has no choice. YES you can get drugs in prison but it does cost you alot of money. prison may do her good. she also needs a good ass kicking and im sure she will because of that nasty attitude she has. shes not a tough girl like she says . shes just a girl with a nasty attitude.

For her daughter's sake.............Thank God she's going to prison. Amber was one of the worst mother's (and girlfriend) I've ever seen. She's completely self centered and hateful. Maybe her daughter stands a chance now that Amber is out of the picture.

Sounds like she thinks prison will be easier than going to meetings and not using. Boy, is she in for a shock.

I really hope in the future, MTV does shows like "My Parents are Losers, but I don't want to be"....just for kids like her baby, Leah. Amber didn't use the MTV money to help her daughters future, so maybe down the line Leah can profit in a good way.

Say It Isn't So    

bahaha. what a mor.on!!! This is, actually, GOOD news folks.....she'll be in prison, and we have a reprieve from Amber "Epitome of Trailer Trash" Portwood because, they don't have paparazzi in prison. On another note: Her lack of caring is sad for her baby, but I don't think that baby needs to be around this piece of shyte. Maybe the baby will thrive if she goes to the pokey for 5 yrs. Let's hope.

People may say how horrible she is. However, this is how corrupt our system is when they keep letting people go. I am proud that she told the judge to stop giving her chances and help her. She couldn't do it on her own and knew what was best. Others would play the system and something worst would happen. She put the brakes on it.
