Meanest Story nominee:
Teen Mom Amber rape drama

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 24 January 2011

Most of the bad stories about Teen Mom Amber Portwood concern her bad behavior, but the Enquirer chimes in this week to tell us she was involved in a rape drama. It is important to note that in the language of the gossip rags, a "drama" is often a story about something that never happened but might have happened if things had been different.

In the language of 1960s comic books, these were called "imaginary stories".

The source of this story is her dad. You might think this makes the story more believable, but to me it just means she comes from a family that's willing to exploit any situation for a cheap buck.

This gets a nomination for Meanest Story of the Week.
