Amber Portwood earned that thick dollar for beating her ex-fiance and neglecting her child. Awesome. Portwood was released from jail, yesterday, on a $5,000 bond, after being charged on two felony counts and a misdemeanor. It is being reported, by Hollywood Life (who’re like Radar Online but with a more garish background colour… so take anything they say with a pinch of salt), that Portwood was forced to reveal her MTV salary to a judge. After her release, the 20-year-old appeared before Madison County magistrate Steven Clase using a video feed. She declared her occupation as ‘television personality’. When asked to reveal MTV’s yearly pay, her lawyer Kathleen Sweeney objected. Portwood was ordered to reveal her salary of $280,000. Not pennies or chips, like, dollars.
