"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood will return for at least one more season of the hit reality series and spoke with The Christian Post about her decision to do so as well as her relationships with the other "Teen Moms."
"It's no secret – I was reluctant in the beginning – but MTV has been in my life for six years. They were there for me when I was in prison, with pictures and letters and most people don't know, but I have personal relationships with people behind the scenes. It made me comfortable to say 'yes,' to them again," Portwood told CP. "You have to think about life before and wonder 'Am I strong enough to do this again?' and I did some soul searching and realized that I am."
Portwood first appeared on "16 & Pregnant" and was later selected, along with Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, and Maci Bookout to be part of "Teen Mom." The show ran for four seasons before ending, but fans still wanted more. MTV began negotiations with each mom and finally announced this year that three of the four would be returning. Abraham would be left out of the series per requests from the girls who did not want to be associated with her other business ventures. more >>

A Georgia grand jury handed down eight charges against Justin Ross Harris for the death of his son this summer.
Harris is charged with malice murder and two counts of felony murder for the death of 22-month-old Cooper, who was left in a hot car and perished this summer. Harris was also charged with first-degree cruelty to children, second-degree cruelty to children, criminal attempt to commit a felony (sexual exploitation of a minor) and two counts of dissemination of harmful material to minors.
He had pleaded not guilty to the charges, with his defense stating that the father had simply forgotten his son in the vehicle on his way to work. However, officials were suspicious of Harris from the very beginning, and evidence began to pile up that cast down on his story. more >>
Jill and Jessa Duggar have both spoken about their plans for large families, keeping in line with their parents' decision to have as many children as God blessed them with.
"Whatever God's plan is, we'd be good with that!" Jessa told ABC News. "It's probably not possible for me to have 19 kids naturally, but we might adopt and get up to that number. We both love kids. We'll play it by ear as we go along. We'll see how it goes."
Jessa is currently engaged to Ben Seewald, who recently moved into the Duggar household and is staying in a guest house on their property. The couple hopes to be married by the end of the year, and will possibly begin having children as soon as they say "I do." more >>
