'Teen Mom' Star Amber Portwood Attempts Suicide

Teen Mom star, Amber Portwood, allegedly attempted to end her life this morning. And I’m sure MTV will capitalize on this with their new show, 18 & Suicidal.

The young mom was rushed to the hospital in Anderson, Indiana after police got a phone call. Anderson Police released the following statement:

“Late this morning (11:34 a.m.), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive. According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation.”

My guess is she was watching MTV at the time.

According to Radaronline.com, a source said, “Two policemen arrived, found her face-up on the couch and immediately called for an ambulance. When two EMT workers arrived, they removed the rope that Amber had loosely knotted around her neck. They tried speaking with her, but she was in and out of consciousness and couldn’t respond; she was just moaning. They gave her an oxygen mask, put her on a gurney, and rushed her to the hospital.”

Portwood is currently being evaluated at the hospital, where on and off again boyfriend Gary Shirley visited her for five minutes earlier today.
