'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood

RELEASED FROM PRISON

I'm Pretty Hungry

"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was just released from an Indiana prison ... almost a year-and-a-half after she begged a judge to put her behind bars ... and now she's ready to eat.

Amber was initially sentenced to 5 years in the big house for violating probation in her drug possession case.

The judge had given Amber the choice of going to a drug rehab program instead of prison -- but Amber decided she would rather serve time than do the program.

Now, we've learned the 24-year-old MTV star -- who began her sentence in June 2012 -- was released Monday morning (only 17 months into her sentence).

We're told Portwood was granted early release due to good behavior, time served and the fact that she completed two unspecified prison courses while serving her time.

She walked out of the prison today wearing a grey sweatsuit ... and a smile ... and says the first thing she wants to do as a free woman is "go get something good to eat."

I'm actually really happy for her. Unlike Jenelle, she knew what she needed to do. Amber I am rooting for you. The road will not be easy, but think about your precious daughter and don't let Gary get to you.

looks like they are getting her ready for a tv show. asking to put a mic on her and also a guy going in the vehicle putting cameras and mic's in it. obviously, she has already signed up for a reality show.

Teen Mom is mockery of parenting and celebrates the downfall of society in the USA. When drugs and sex are glorified to the extent that they are in pop culture to minors, then disgusting people like Amber Portwood will be more and more common.

let me guess. she prob will get a reality show that will show her getting acclimated with her new life post prison and rekindling a relatiionship with her daughter. I never watched the teen show she was on- religiously but I did see a few times how she mistreated her baby's father. Hopefully they can work through their issues. He seemed really sweet.

It certainly doesn't look like she was malnourished while in prison.
