Amber Portwood: I Had BRUTAL Morning Sickness the Whole Pregnancy!

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Amber Portwood welcomed her baby boy.

Amber is happy that her son is born and that she’s given Leah a baby brother. But … she is also relieved.

Apparently, Amber’s pregnancy was harder on her than she ever let on. This sounds brutal.

A source tells People that Amber Portwood’s pregnancy complications were intensely rough on her.

“Amber spent almost her whole pregnant feeling sick.”

A little morning sickness — which involves, ugh, vomiting — is not uncommon early on during pregnancies. For some women, it’s the first indicator that they are pregnant.

“Not just the first trimester, and not just in the mornings.”

That sounds like a truly miserable existence.

“She was sick day and night.”

That is heartbreaking to hear.

“It was brutal.”

The good news, of course, is that Amber Portwood welcomed her son with Andrew Glennon.

“Baby James is here and Amber is over the moon”

He was born weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces, which is above average but doesn’t make him a goliath by any measure.

We knew that he was born early on Tuesday, but the insider confirms that he was born at 1:39 in the morning. That’s very, very early.

All of that suffering must have felt worth it when she looked at his tiny little face, right?

Apparently, the extreme sickness did not come as a surprise — because she had gone through the same thing with Leah.

“It was the same problem she had in her first pregnancy, she was just sick all the time.”

Nine years is a long time, but not long enough to forget what it’s like to spend nine months being betrayed by your own body.

But, apparently, she felt that it would be worth it.

“In spite of all that she was just so happy to be starting over with a guy like Andrew.”

That’s nice to hear, since fans have heard how messy Amber and Andrew’s relationship is.

“And now that the baby is here, they are over the moon.”

Okay, that insider needs to find some new idioms. (But we’re all guilty of that from time to time)

This wasn’t actually a huge surprise to Amber’s fans.

While she didn’t tell fans exactly how bad it was, she certainly let people know that her pregnancy was not all smooth sailing.

When Amber went into early labor, she was unable to sleep, and she shared with her fans that she was having a hard time.

But that was last weekend, just two days before she gave birth.

it is absolutely horrifying to imagine that she was sick at all hours of the day.

Even if that insider is exaggerating … many people are amazed that she decided to have another baby at all, given what she was in for.

The first photos of sweet baby James that we’ve seen are so cute.

And Amber seems so at peace, too.

We also love seeing 9-year-old Leah cradling her baby brother.

That’s a hell of an age difference. In a lot of households, this would lead to Leah being yet another primary caregiver for her little sibling.

But we’re sure that Leah and baby James will have plenty of time to bond with each other and forge a beautiful sibling relationship.

We are so sorry to hear that Amber had such a hard time bringing him into this world, however. But at least that ordeal is in the past.


Jenelle Evans: If I Go Down, I’m Bringing the Whole Cast With Me!

Last week, the world learned that Jenelle Evans threatened a man with a gun following a road rage incident that very nearly ended in tragedy.

Not surprisingly, the news resulted in demands that Teen Mom 2 producers fire Jenelle from the show that made her famous.

It’s a move that fans and castmates have been calling for for years.

Jenelle’s instability might make her good for ratings, but her bigotry, affinity for violence, and tendency toward abusive behavior make her an affront to human decency.

Already, Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, has been fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of a bizarre homophobic tirade he posted on social media.

MTV might claim otherwise, but that decision appears to have been largely the result of pressure from people like Jeremy Calvert, who has not been shy about expressing his belief that Jenelle is bad for the show and bad for the network.

One might think that at this point, Evans would be doing her best to appease her bosses and co-workers.

But that would be the rational person’s course of action, so naturally, Jenelle is doing the exact opposite and antagonizing the very people who have the power to end her career.

Jenelle is taking her latest stand by threatening to boycott filming for the Teen Mom 2 reunion show, which is scheduled to take place in New York City on May 19.

A source tells Radar Online that Jenelle sees refusing to film (a tactic she employs often) as the most effective of way of making her producers and co-stars pay for what she considers insufferable mistreatment:

“She is ready for the confrontations but is really dreading all of them ganging up on her,” says one insider.

“Jenelle wants nothing to do with all of them,” the source continues.

“She is so tired of the girls and their guys and even their parents being mean to her, and she is not afraid to call them all out, but she doesn’t want to go to the reunion alone.”

Yes, it seems Jenelle is refusing to show up to the reunion unless David is allowed to join her.

But considering multiple Moms have stated that that don’t feel comfortable working with David after a bizarre incident in which he drunkenly stabbed some balloons with a knife at a cast party, you can be sure that producers won’t budge on that issue.

“Jenelle loves David. She supports him. She wants him to be at the reunion, but MTV has said absolutely not, no way,” says the source.

“She is trying to do everything she can to change their minds. She’s threatening not to show up, but she has to,” the insider continues.

Yes, it seems Jenelle is under the impression that she’s still in a position to take a stand on such issues.

Her inability to read the writing on the wall is almost impressive.

In the end, you can expect this conflict to play out exactly like every other clash between Jenelle and producers – she’ll stand her ground until she realizes that they’re serious about taking away her sole source of income, and then she’ll fold like a cheap suit.

Pussycat Dolls Founder Responds to That Whole “Prostitution” Thing

Now that Kaya Jones is done talking, Robin Antin would like to take the floor.

And set the record straight.

Late last week, Jones went off on a Twitter rant that railed against her time as a member of The Pussycat Dolls.

The artist used harsh language to describe an allegedly horrible situation, comparing the group to a “prostitution ring” and saying she was forced to “sleep with whoever they say.”

She said members of the band were “abused,” sometimes “hooked on drugs” and she compared her experience as a Pussycat Doll to “war.”

Turning her attention to Simone Battle, a singer in spin-off group G.R.L. who committed suicide three years ago, Jones wrote:

“I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide? Tell the public how you mentally broke us.”

Without stating her name, this was clearly a reference to Robin Antin, the choreographer who started The Pussycat Dolls.

And now Antin has fired back.

On Monday morning, Antin talked to The Blast and called the allegations, “disgusting, ridiculous lies.”

She addedthat that Jones, who was in the group from 2003-2005, is “clearly looking for her 15 minutes [of fame].”

As for why her name may not sound familiar to music fans? Antin said Jones was only ever a “trial” member. She was never an official Pussycat Doll.

This could also explain the response of Asia Nitollano.

That artist, who sang with The Pussycat Dolls in 2007, scoffed at Kaya’s remarks over the weekend as follows:

“Who is Kaya Jones? Lol She was not apart of The Pussycat Dolls the recording group so I do not know her…

“But judging from google she looks like she just wants her 15min of fame. (Side note… it says she’s a Trump supporter… but yet she’s Canadian, which means her vote doesn’t count!!!!

“Same with this comment about The Pussycat Dolls; she wasn’t in the group so her opinion doesn’t count!!!!”

What about Battle‘s suicide?

Antin told The Blast that bringing up this topic was “unfathomable and disrespectful to everyone who works towards suicide prevention and awareness,” writes the website.

And Antin says adds that mentioning a suicide in such a brazen way not only affects the family, but the millions of people that loved and cared for Simone.

She has a pretty strong point there, doesn’t she?

If Jones is going to claim Battle killed herself due to her experience in her singing group and all that included… well… she better have some pretty hard evidence to back up such an assertion.
