Is Amber Portwood Appearing on the Maury Show? (VIDEO)
Thank your luckyTeen Momstars because it looks like your favorite reality star is heading to the Maury Show. That’s right! Amber Portwood is making a special appearance on the infamous talk show, where she will give advice to troubled teenage girls (much like herself in the past!). Um, how soon can we DVR our television sets?
In case you forgot, Amber has a hefty criminal past to draw experience from. Not only has she been arrested numerous times — for drug possession, domestic abuse, violating her probation — but she spent almost two years behind bars. Now that Amber has been released and has since maintained her sobriety (we’re so proud of this girl), she’s on a mission to help other troubled young people avoid the same dark path.
So what can you expect from May 1st’s Maury Show? Here’s what the show has to say: “On this special episode of Maury, four teenage girls determined to destroy their lives. See how their behavior, dangerous sexual lifestyles, alcohol and drug use is tearing their families apart! Maury gives these teens a hardcore reality check and helps these families confront their wild and out of control teenage daughters!”
In the sneak peek provided by the Maury Show, Amber sits down with the four girls and gets real. “I’m so passionate about this because I’ve lived this life,” Amber says on the show. “I just got out of prison four months ago.” She also adds, “I don’t want you to live that life. It’s full of heartache and pain!”
Can you feel the drama already? The tension? The tears? We can hardly contain our excitement, not to mention how ready our bodies are to see Amber return to the small screen. But this time, instead of choking Gary, she’s coaching teenage girls and preaching her valuable advice. #Blessed
