Amber Portwood to Appear on Dr. Phil Show

Amber Portwood Dr. Phill

Former ‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood is to appear on the Dr. Phil Show Friday December 20th. According to Dr. Phil’s website Amber is “opening up exclusively to Dr. Phil in her first post-prison television interview. Why did she choose prison over rehab — and potentially sacrifice years with her now 5-year-old daughter, Leah? And, now that she’s out of prison, can she stay clean? Plus, Amber speaks out about her struggles with anger, including domestic violence charges in 2010 involving Leah’s father, her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Gary. What is their relationship like now? And, what’s their plan for raising their daughter? Plus, hear more about what’s next for Amber.”

In a sneak peek of Amber’s interview (watch that video here) she says that she was high during the entire filming of ‘Teen Mom’ which is shocking to me. I really thought her problems came well after having Leah, when she was prescribed medication for anxiety, but it looks like Amber’s struggle with drugs may have been something that was going on from the very beginning. She says to Dr. Phil “This is actually my first time on stage sober… so I’m really nervous!”
