Is this a wake-up call to TV producers who capitalize on troubled lives?

Star Magazine reported that Portwood drifted in and out of consciousness and admitted to taking pills on Tuesday, and rescuers had to remove a rope around her neck.

Such turbulent events, sprung into the public sphere, can be too much to handle for any adult, let alone a teen mother.
