'Teen Mom' Tell-All Book Will Spill All the Dirty Secrets

Teen MomAmber Portwood has not had an easy life, to say the least. While the Teen Mom star seems to be doing really these days, it's been a rough and rocky path to get here. Rock bottom had to be when she lost custody of her daughter, Leah, and then decided to do jail time instead of a drug court rehab program.

Amber was released last fall after serving 17 months of her 5-year sentence, and she says she's kicked her addiction to Fentanyl patches, has gotten control of her anger management issues, and is working on co-parenting with her ex-fiance and baby daddy Gary Shirley. And now she's announced plans to chronicle her journey in a tell-all memoir, tentatively titled Never Too Late.

The reality star dished to In Touch magazine about the endeavor and said it will give a behind-the-scenes look to her life that we didn't see on MTV. She revealed, "It’s a brutally honest account of how bad my life got."

We only got to see what played out in front of the cameras (well, and in the news, with that whole jail thing), but Amber says there was some seriously messed up stuff going on, including: "Addiction. Mental illness. Death. Divorce. Betrayal. Violence. Suicide attempts. Felony charges. Rehab. Drug overdoses. Jail ... I’m going to tell you how it all happened," she explained.

Amber's hope is that by being honest about everything she's been through and fought her way back from the brink of, others will learn from her mistakes, including her 5-year-old daughter Leah. "I'm living proof," she said, "that it’s never too late to change your life for the better."

Amen, sister. We couldn't be prouder of how far Amber's come and can't wait to read her memoir. It looks like it's going to be a page-turner.

Will you read Amber's book?
