'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood is not only spending time in an Indiana prison, but she is hiding that fact from her three-year-old daughter, Leah. How can any of this be good?
At least one tabloid is "exclusively reporting" that instead of explaining to Leah that her mom isn't coming home for a while because of a 5-year jail sentence, Amber is instead in California shooting a movie. Talk about a ruse that seems to protect the child now, but could have a different set of consequences down the road.
Even Gary Shirley (the baby daddy) is keeping up with the little, white lie to Leah. The thing is, now that Leah is in daycare, there is no way that can keep up the story, can they? Leah is going to find out at some point, right?
"It's only a matter a time before Leah overhears it," claims a source. "That has got Amber and Gary in a panic that she will find out what's going on before they tell her."
The problem with all of this is that Leah will eventually ask to see her mommy in the movie. Of course, Amber Portwood isn't filming a movie, though she is reportedly singing in the prison choir at the Rockville Correctional Facility. It makes one wonder if the Teen Mom star can carry a tune.
