There's a lot of debate today over MTV’s “Teen Mom” docu-drama star, Amber Portwood, who beat her on-again, off-again boyfriend on the last episode of the show. Portwood has since apologized and says she’s seeking help for her anger issues, but the debate rages on.
"Showbiz Tonight" producer Sid Lipsey is outraged that there hasn’t been any charges brought against Amber and that she’s not in jail – after all, she was filmed abusing her partner. But "Showbiz Tonight’s" own Brooke Anderson points out that, while she isn’t excusing that kind of violence, the show is doing its job – and showing the realities of being a teen mom. Today, "Showbiz Tonight" is asking: Should Amber be held accountable for her violence?
Also on our radar tonight: Jenny McCarthy criticizes Demi Moore and how she’s handling reports that Ashton Kutcher is being unfaithful. What do you think - are Demi and Ashton handling the infidelity reports the right way?
