Tattooing a Person’s Face On Your Body Is a Bad Idea

Tattooing a Person's Face On Your Body Is a Bad Idea

Dear Amber Portwood,

I think we’ve established that I think you suck. In fact, a lot of people think you suck. And recently you lost custody of your daughter, Leah, which is really the best thing that could have happened to that kid since you seemed to be allergic to cleaning your house, taking care of your kid, or not hitting your baby daddy. However, now that CPS has gotten involved you have to look like you’re invested in being a good parent in order to get Leah back. Some people might decide to take a parenting class or go to anger-management therapy. You, however, chose to get a giant tattoo of your kid’s face on your stomach. More »

‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood Is Hated In Her Hometown

'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Is Hated In Her Hometown

It’s not just the entire viewing audience of MTV’s Teen Mom who hates Amber Portwood – an op-ed in her hometown newspaper makes it sound like the people who actually have to live with her aren’t terribly happy about it.

The Anderson Bulletin, the local newspaper for Anderson, Indiana, ran an editorial last week by a hometown resident who is none too pleased about Anderson’s most infamous resident and how she makes their community appear on television. Amber – who is never mentioned by name in the piece – is correctly vilified for abusing her on-again off-again fiance Gary (and the father of her child) on national television. But the anonymous author doesn’t just hate Amber – he or she is angry with MTV’s content as well. More »

Amber’s Date from ‘Teen Mom’ Is A Sex Offender

Amber's Date from 'Teen Mom' Is A Sex Offender

On last week’s episode of Teen Mom, Amber went out on a date with a guy she’d met at Wal-Mart. The guy seemed pretty shady even before he admitted that he was on a work-release program from prison. When Amber told him that she had a kid, he said that was “great.” Amber, who doesn’t seem to have the sense God gave a mule (copyright: my grandmother), seemed pretty put off by his comment, and with good reason. I’m not saying that men who like children are all pedos, but the combination of his smarminess, saying he loved kids, and being a convicted felon certainly set off some alarm bells for me. And it turns out those instincts were right: Christopher Glen Hossman, aka Amber’s Date, is a convicted child molester. More »

Is It Weird for An Adult to Be Obsessed With ‘Teen Mom’?

Is It Weird for An Adult to Be Obsessed With 'Teen Mom'?

Plenty of people my age watch trashy reality fare like Rock of Love, but there’s one show I feel sort of ashamed to call my appointment television: MTV’s Teen Mom. Why am I so riveted by a show that’s about 18 year olds with babies? Two reasons: one, because it’s the exact opposite of my life; and two, because it’s dangerously close to what my life could have been if I’d made one or two decisions differently. More »

What’s the Deal with Tyler’s Dad Butch on ‘Teen Mom’?

What's the Deal with Tyler's Dad Butch on 'Teen Mom'?

Few things have ever made me cry as much as the episode of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant where Tyler and Catelynn gave their daughter, Carly, up for adoption. They knew that they were doing the best thing for their child, yet their hearts absolutely broke to let her go. However, once Tyler and Catelynn were cast on Teen Mom, we got more of a glimpse into their depressing home lives. In a weird turn of events, Catelynn’s mother April is married to Tyler’s dad, Butch. Butch has been in and out of Tyler’s life and alluded to spending time in prison. But thanks to the good people at Starcasm, we now know exactly what Butch was up to – and what his real name is. According to Michigan state records, Darl Lynn “Butch” Baltierra has been convicted twice for breaking and entering and once each for larceny and home invasion. Also, he has a tattoo of Tyler’s name on his neck. That’s Butch’s charmingly terrifying mugshot to the left. Here are full details: More »
