'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood MTV special 'Amber Behind Bars' to premiere Oct. 9

amber-portwood-teen-mom-jail.jpg "Teem Mom" star Amber Portwood, now serving a five-year prison sentence for probation violation, will be the subject of an MTV special airing Oct. 9.

In the 30-minute program, Dr. Drew Pinsky (who else?) sits down with the troubled mom inside the Rockville Correctional Facility in Indiana to pontificate about addiction to see how she's coping since being locked up this June.

The behind-bars babe was unable to attend the reunion specials for "Teen Mom," which concluded its original series run Sept. 11.

Instead, Pinsky read a statement from Amber, and outgoing original cast members Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell taped messages of support.

(Read Amber's statement in its entirety here.)

In the prison interview with D.Pins, Amber candidly discusses her relationship with 3-year-old daughter Leah and baby daddy Gary Portwood, and describes what her life has been like as an inmate.

"Amber Behind Bars: An MTV Special" premieres Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 10:00 p.m., followed by a new half-hour "Teen Mom: Ask the Moms" special at 10:30.

And even though we thought we said our final farewells to the OG teen mamas at the last reunion special, a new hour-long "Teen Mom Farewell Special" will air Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 10:00 p.m. But don't expect anything new: this special was taped earlier this year with Maci, Catelynn and Farrah.
