The events on Teen Mom are frequently troubling, but today things took a particularly tragic turn when Amber Portwood reportedly attempted to commit suicide. According to the police report, a caller said Amber “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.” A source says that the call was placed by Gary Shirley‘s mother, and that EMTs found her semi-conscious will a rope loosely knotted around her neck.

Amber‘s brother, Shawn Portwood, says, “Amber told us she had a panic attack last night after Gary began calling her names, telling her he was going to take Leah away from her … He’s verbally abusive to her. Our whole family thinks he’s the reason behind all of Amber’s problems.” Shawn says no one called Amber’s family when she was taken to the hospital, and suggests that Gary may have tipped the tabloids because he’s still trying to win custody.

  • Melissa Leo, who co-stars with Tracy Morgan in the upcoming film Predisposed, says of his homophobic rant, “I witnessed Tracy very upset by being misunderstood, and the best comfort to him seemed to be that comedy is the most difficult [skill] of what we do … And comedy in the theatrical arts presses boundaries and asks questions and puts things in people’s faces. The cat I’m working with up the river is a very fine man with the best intentions. And yeah, he likes to push an envelope, without a doubt.” [N.Y. Mag]
