Amber Portwood has been released from jail. She got sprung yesterday.
The troubled Teen Mom star was placed back behind bars last week after violating the terms of her probation by failing to appear in an Indiana court.
The 22-year-old allegedly lied about a medical condition to get out of a drug test. Her probation officer called the bluff, asking her doctor directly.
Some very sleepy-eyed Amber Portwood mug shots soon followed.
How’s the reality star feeling now that she’s back on the other side?
“OK,” Amber told E! News. “Just hustling. I’ve got a lot on my plate.”
We counted 21 questions for Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich at last night’s GOP debate in Florida, with 12 for Rick Santorum, and a mere eight for Ron Paul.
To a point, we get that this is influenced by results and polling … but on the flip side, aren’t results and polling likely to be based on amount of exposure?
Why not give candidates equal free media exposure at the debates?
It’s not like these are fringe guys really. Ron Paul has a strong third and second place finish and polls in double digits everywhere; Santorum won Iowa.
Makes no sense. Fortunately, we came across this highlightMore >
Despite two strong finishes in as many races, Ron Paul has been derided as unelectable, even dangerous in his bid for the GOP presidential nomination by many critics.
Such criticism of Paul stems not from Democrats, but from Republican pundits and political figures – something U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina is upset by.
DeMint, whose state holds a critical primary Saturday, says it’s time to start taking Paul, his views and the contingent of supporters he has assembled seriously.
This isn’t just lip service, either. In a series of interviews, including this one on the LauraMore >
Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry has rolled out a new campaign ad, one unlike any you’ve seen before. And quite possibly for good reason.
Like the infamous Herman Cain smoking ad, you see it once and think “No, this has to be a parody.” Then you watch it again, and nope, it’s sure not.
The Cliff Notes: Perry is strong. Obama loves gays and hates Christmas. Nice.
Give the Texas Governor credit for melding every wedge issue – homosexuals serving in the military, Barack Obama, the secularization of America, and people who don’t celebrate Christmas – intoMore >
First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of the Vice President, served as grand marshals yesterday prior to a NASCAR race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. They were on hand to promote the military family-based project Joining Forces, starting the race along with a wounded veteran named Andrew Berry and his family.
And the famous wives were audibly booked upon being introduced to the crowd. Hear for yourself:
The sports governing body downplayed the response via a statement by Marcus Jadotte, NASCAR vice president of public affairs. ItMore >
Saying he “let my words get the best of me”, Soulja Boy wrote an apology letter today after coming under heavy fire for perceived anti-military lyrics.
While a line like “F**k the Army troops” is open to some interpretation … it’s clear what the message was in his recently-released rap, “Let’s Be Real.”
In any case, the star just posted a blog entitled titled, “I Am Deeply Sorry To All Members Of The United States Military Services And Their Families.”
Several military vets lashed out against Soulja Boy after he released the rap. One former sergeant even released his own rap dissing theMore >
Prince William and Kate Middleton ended their whirlwind visit to the U.S. in typical fashion: Devoting time to charitable causes important to them.
Following a star-studded day of glamorous events, the royal visited L.A.’s notorious Skid Row district to spend time with impoverished children.
That wasn’t all. The Duke and Duchess followed that up by filling care packages for children whose parents are serving overseas in the military.
Will and Kate went to Inner City Arts, an oasis in the middle of an area rife with homelessness that provides free art classes to neighborhood kids.
Track Palin, the oldest child of Todd and Sarah Palin, just married his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
“Our families couldn’t be happier!” the Hansons and Palins told People.
“These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who have grown up together. We’re tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed.”
The couple will have a larger wedding this winter “when extended family and friends from the Lower 48 can travel north for a long skiMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – In the 22-months since his momentous election President Obama has attracted both fans and foes of equal commitment. But few are more passionate about change than Bruce Springsteen. And the Boss thinks the whole of DC is ‘ugly.’
The 61-year old musical icon has been a high-profile supporter of Mr. Obama and his plans for reform since day one, but he hates the way critics use “the most extreme language” to describe plans for quite modest change.
“There’s a political consciousness that’s perhaps deeper in Europe than in the States,” he told Britain’s Telegraph. “TheMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – Lending her voice to the growing chorus of condemnation caused by the plans, Angelina Jolie has denounced a Florida Pastor’s intention to burn the Koran on Saturday’s ninth anniversary of 9/11.
Currently on a UN-sponsored mission to Pakistan to help raise awareness of that nation’s plight since monsoon rains six weeks ago caused floods that killed almost 2,000 people, the 35-year old actress told reporters she was unable to comprehend such a plan.
“I have hardly the words; that somebody would do that to somebody’s religious book,” Jolie told reporters while visitingMore >
If you thought Levi Johnston’s run for mayor would be the funniest story regarding Alaska politics all day on THG, we wouldn’t blame you. But think again!
A woman from Homer, Alaska recently made a 30-foot sign to welcome her state’s former chief executive, Sarah Palin, to her hometown. Its simple message:
(HMG) – Wearing a tight black Elie Saab dress, Sandra Bullock made her first public appearance in months at Spike TV’s 4th annual Guys Choice Awards held at Sony Studio in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Bullock received a standing ovation from the audience Saturday night as she accepted the “Troops Choice” Award for Entertainer of The Year, from presenter Robert Downey, Jr. The award was voted on by members of the military.
