Teen Mom OG Recap: Ryan Edwards Gets Married! Again!

On Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12, a couple prepared to tie the knot, but that wasn't the only notable event on the MTV hit.

Not by a long shot.

Would Farrah's latest altercation with producers spell the end of her time on the show on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12?

Would Tyler man up and get his father into rehab? Would Amber be able to handle the bombshell she had to drop on Leah?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you recall that Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s first wedding day was ... unusual.

They married in a parking lot with only his parents on hand, with Ryan having driven there high as a kite no less. On camera.

Obviously, they still have plenty of issues and obstacles to overcome, but this time, at least there was no wedding controversy.

Fans may be a little upset, though, by the fact that before the ceremony, Ryan Edwards was seen drinking with his groomsmen.

Harmless? Perhaps, but for a man with obvious addiction issues, it's sure to raise red flags with some viewers, for good reason.

Asked about his wedding vows, Ryan told his friends, “I don’t care, it’s not like it’s got to be perfect.” They were pretty close.

“I promise to always love you, be your best friend, I promise to be faithful and always be there for you,” he told Mackenzie.

Standifer had a prepared speech. Slightly awkward.

Later, Ryan admitted to his wife that he’s drunk; Edwards and Standifer proceeded to take shots and talk about their financial situation.

Ryan's father then gave a speech that made him cry.

That was pretty emotional, as was the scene last night were Tyler Baltierra’s long-troubled father, Butch, finally enters rehab.

Butch cried when he learned that his son had come up with the exorbitant amount of money to cover the treatment, in full.

At the rehab center, one of the administrators says to Tyler that it’s probably been a long time since he’s really met his dad.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met him,” he responds.

For his part, Butch confessed that he's done “a lot” of cocaine and crack in life and was on drugs as recently as “3-4 days ago.”

Terrifying. Speaking of family drama, Farrah Abraham put her differences with her mother aside to celebrate Debra‘s birthday.

At least she tried. Could it possibly last?

Deb pleads for Farrah to attend her wedding, which Sophia finally decides she's allowed to, so that's a step in the right direction.

However, after Abraham's “vaginal rejuvenation” (seriously), Deb was left waiting in the car for a half hour as Farrah got ready.

Farrah Abraham Gets Sexy

When she finally got in the car, Farrah proceeded to freak the f--k out on a producer for reasons that weren't entirely clear.

While Farrah's insane treatment of producers has been well documented, it's never not amazing to watch it play out on TV.

“If you can’t get along with anyone or try to or get in my way of how I live my f--king life," she says, "then do not work with me."

"F--k you and your excuses.”

Farrah Abraham, ladies and gentlemen. Never a dull moment or an episode that passes without a complete meltdown.

Amber Portwood on Andrew Glennon: He Doesn’t Cheat or Beat Me!

Talk about damning someone with faint praise.

If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, then you're no doubt aware that Amber Portwood has dated a lot of losers.

And it seems she's really lowered her standards as a result of spending so much time with the likes of Matt Baier.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

These days, Amber is dating Andrew Glennon, a former producer on Marriage Boot Camp.

He's got a real job (or at least he did, until he quit to move to Indiana for Amber), so at already he's got a leg up on Baier and company.

Amber is pregnant with Andrew's baby, and many fans are skeptical that she's yet again rushed headlong into a bad situation.

But it seems Amber is of the opinion that she's finally found Mr. Right.

And she's attempting to put her fans' minds at ease by citing some of the truly unimpressive ways in which Andrew is superior to her previous dudes.

Amber Portwood Baby Bump with Andrew Glennon

As The Ashley's Reality Roundup points out, Amber fought with Andrew about finding out the sex of their baby on a recent episode of TMOG.

Many fans compared her behavior in that scene with a blowout fight between her and Matt that was captured by Marriage Boot Camp cameras.

That prompted Amber to point out some important differences between the two relationships:

“No matter how crazy I get I still love my man,” Amber wrote on Twitter about Andrew. “I don’t scream at Andrew lol…we’re so happy together.”

“[Andrew] doesn’t hit me or cheat on me so yeah I treat him like a real man,” Amber wrote. “If you are a liar and cheater yeah bless your soul lol and get out of my way.

Andrew Glennon

From there, Amber went on to make a slightly more compelling case for Andrew, claiming that for the first time, she feels she can rely on her partner:

"Thank god I have a good man to lean on now!” she continued.

“No more drama and no more screaming! I don’t like men who are liars and cheaters so if I’m a bitch for standing up for myself then so be it…I’m very happy with myself; however, I found a man that is my rock…”

So we guess that's a step in the right direction.

Of course, Amber was always quick to defend Matt throughout that relationship, too.

And we all know how that turned out...

Watch Teen Mom OG online to remind yourself of just how bad Amber is at relationships.

Amber Portwood Freaks Out: Do I LOOK F–king High?!

Amber Portwood may have moved on in real life, but on reality TV time, she's still on Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Family Edition.

In fact, she's still having to shoot down claims that her baby is Matt Baier's. But she's accused of more than that.

As you'll see in the Marriage Boot Camp teaser video below, Amber Portwood is accused of being high -- and she freaks right out.

Amber portwood and matt baier on marriage boot camp

This season of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars: Family Edition, a show that continues to have one heck of a title, got a little unplanned publicity.

Why? Because of Amber Portwood.

Everyone on the show has some degree of name recognition -- I mean, Brandi Glanville's there wearing stars over her nipples (also in the video).

But Amber Portwood wasn't what you'd call a "happy camper" ... in that the marriage (it was actually an engagement) that she was supposed to be boot camping ended.

It wasn't just that the relationship ended at camp. Amber also found someone new ... while she was there.

Amber portwood on marriage boot camp 03

Andrew Glennon may have seemed like he just popped into existence out of nowhere. To many fans, anyway.

In reality, Andrew actually worked on the show -- on Marriage Boot Camp -- and he gave Amber Portwood a shoulder to cry on behind the scenes.

He apparently gave her some other body parts on which to do other things, however.

Because Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child.

And, though the rumor mill continues to suggest that the baby might be Matt Baier's (and we get it -- the timing is really close), Andrew Glennon is the father and they're both excited about this new chapter in their lives.

Amber portwood on marriage boot camp 02

But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

Right now, in reality television time, Amber is still struggling through her relationship with Matt. We all know that it's doomed to fail now and, quite frankly, most people have known that since they started dating.

But it isn't her various issus with Matt that's giving Amber pauses in this video below.

Instead, she gets accused of being high -- as in, you know, high on drugs.

And though it's an accusation that she herself has also made (within the same teaser video), Amber Portwood absolutely freaks out.

Amber portwood on marriage boot camp 01

Various reality stars on the show are arranged in a deeply demeaning "classroom" set-up.

(We're not saying that a show like this can't possibly help anyone, but the theatrics for the sake of entertainment value can be deeply insulting, and may even be designed to push them to their limits while the cameras are rolling)

Upon hearing the suggestion that she is "still high from two shows ago," Amber Portwood stands up, furious.

"Do I look f--kin' high?!" she exclaims, furious.

The tension is palpable.

Amber portwood on marriage boot camp 04

It's no secret that Amber Portwood has struggled with drugs in the past. She has a scary history with addiction.

That may be the cause of her ire -- for an addict to be accused of being on drugs is a much bigger deal than it would be for someone else, who might merely shrug off the intended insult.

Of course, we see Amber respond to multiple things this way -- again, just within this very short teaser video.

So part of that is just ... Amber being Amber.

But clearly there are parts of Amber that we're not seeing, because this is the same show where Andrew Glennon fell in love with her.

Amber Portwood: I Am NOT Pregnant With Matt Baier’s Baby!

As you may have heard, Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child.

Amber is dating Andrew Glennon these days, so naturally, when she announced that she's expecting, fans concluded that she's carrying Andrew's child.

Amber Portwood at 2017 VMAs

But nothing in Amber's life has been simple or straightforward up to this point, so why should her second pregnancy be any different?

In recent weeks, a rumor that Amber is pregnant with Matt Baier's baby has been making its way around social media, and Amber is quite understandably not happy about it.

Baier, of course, is Amber's trash-person former fiance, whom she dumped just days before beginning her relationship with Glennon.

(Amber and Matt were filming Marriage Boot Camp at the time of their split. Glennon was a producer on the show.)

With Amber getting pregnant so soon after being engaged to Matt, there was bound to be some doubt about the kid's paternity.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

But the situation went further than expected, with tinfoil hat-wearing Teen Mom OG obsessives crafting narratives and timelines that they claim "proves" that Amber is pregnant by Baier.

When Amber revealed her due date as May 13, many insisted that she had basically confirmed she was pregnant by Matt.

Obviously, that's not the case, but it seems the Twitter loonies aren't the only ones who are convinced another baby Baier is on the way:

On last night's episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber's first baby daddy, Garry Shirley, revealed that he's considered the possibility that Amber is carrying Matt's child.

"It had to be within a week of them hanging out," he said to wife Kristina Anderson while discussing Amber's pregnancy.

Amber Portwood and Her Dog

"I think there was a break between Matt and Andrew," Kristina replied. "I think. I don't know."

Naturally, the Twitter conspiracy theorists went nuts and began furiously tweeting at Amber for clarification.

Eventually, she responded thusly:

"Me and Matt broke up in May lol"

Okay, so maybe not the in-depth response fans had hoped for, but clearly Amber is hoping that will be enough to put the matter to rest.

Amber on Teen Mom

A source who claims to be close to Amber went into greater detail in a recent interview with Radar Online:

“That would be physically impossible,” the insider said when asked if there's any chance that Amber is pregnant by Matt.

“They broke up and he moved to Las Vegas on July 3. The baby had to be conceived in August. She never came to visit him in August.”

The source adds:

“It’s definitely not his.”

Matt Baier and Amber Portwood Throwback

Is it possible that the source is Amber? 

Sure, but it also seems highly unlikely that she's carrying Matt's baby.

The woman has made plenty of horrendous decisions, but she's not a masochist.

The jury's still out on this Glennon character, but he's gotta be better than Matt ... right?

Teen Mom OG Recap: Insane in the Brain

Monday on Teen Mom OG, Amber and Andrew got into a major tiff, while Farrah and her mom continued to butt heads over Deb's wedding.

Also, Catelynn confirmed she was pregnant again, but not everybody reacted to the seemingly joyous news how you might expect.

When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 10 got underway, Amber finally announced her baby news to her friends and family members.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that there's always more drama ahead, though, and Andrew Glennon delivered.

Amber disagreed with his “hippie” suggestion that they wait to find out the gender of their child, and an explosive argument followed.

Not surprisingly, Amber won out in the end.

The family then celebrated Halloween with her daughter, Leah, along with Leah's father Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina Anderson.

Gary Shirley on Teen Mom OG

The haunted hayride looked fun, but things turned a little more serious (and awkward) when Gary expressed his concern for Amber.

Regarding her pregnancy, he even took a dig at her and the timeline of her latest romance, saying, “hopefully it’s not Matt's!"

Hopefully not, indeed. Kristina weighed in that “I think there was a break between Matt and Andrew, I think, I don’t know!”

None of us really do.

Indeed, fans have speculated that Amber’s baby could possibly be Matt’s, but there's nothing to suggest that rumor is true.

Ryan Edwards of Teen Mom

Down in the Volunteer State, Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards were still trying to figure out a custody agreement, and butting heads.

Since he has yet to take a drug test - her requirement for him to see Bentley more often - there's still an impasse in that regard.

Just the same, Maci and Ryan kept up their tradition of taking Bentley trick-or-treating together with his grandparents, Jen and Larry.

At least that was the plan.

When Maci changed the time, Ryan, Mackenzie Standifer, and her son, Hudson, were not able to join the festivities. Ryan was pissed.

Mackenzie Edwards on Teen Mom Reunion

Ryan alleged that Maci intentionally wanted to sabotage the plans and exclude him, though Maci claimed this was not the case.

Separately, she told husband Taylor McKinney that she didn’t know anything about Ryan and Mackenzie’s scheduling issues.

Either way, another day, another drama.

On a bittersweet note, considering what we know has happened since this was filmed, Catelynn Lowell was celebrating her pregnancy.

At the same time, she and Tyler Baltierra were dealing with the emotionally heavy subject of sending his father Butch back to rehab.

Tyler Baltierra and Nova

Fortunately for Butch, this time it was voluntary, not court-ordered; Cate and Tyler were also behind him 100% - and $48,000 worth.

That's a lot of confidence in his ability to take it seriously, but it seemed like he was, even if he was feeling anxious about the process.

We wish him the best.

As for Cate, we know she miscarried, and that Lowell is in rehab again as well as part of her ongoing battle with mental health problems.

Finally, Farrah Abraham heard from none other than Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 fame, who reached out to her about Deb's wedding.

Farrah Abraham Cries on Teen Mom OG

What does Jenelle have to do with it?

Apparently, Evans' ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, was invited to Farrah's mother's upcoming nuptials ... which makes literally no sense.

Farrah, naturally, was confused, and did the logical thing - calling up Debbo on FaceTime and putting her on blast over this move.

Despite the verbal reprimand, Debra decided to stand by her decision about Courtland being invited, which still makes no sense, but hey:

Very little about Farrah's world does.

Amber Portwood Accuses Matt Baier of Abuse on Marriage Boot Camp!

In just a few short weeks, we will be receiving such a delightful, exciting gift ...

And that gift is the premiere episode of the new season of Marriage Boot Camp!

This season, we're most excited to see Amber Portwood work through her issues with Matt Baier, because even though their relationship obviously didn't work out, there's still a lot we'd like to know about their breakup.

We're also dying to see if Andrew Glennon, her new boyfriend/baby daddy and a crew member for Marriage Boot Camp, makes any sort of cameo.

Plus, if you know Amber, then you know that she's completely incapable of not bringing the drama, right?

And thanks to this special little sneak peek of what has to be some of her most explosive scenes, we know that she really, really brought it.

The clip begins with sirens and flashing text that reads "Amber Alert," which is in kind of poor taste, considering what Amber Alerts actually are, but we get it.

Next, we see her hitting a punching bag with a baseball bat, then she yells "F-ck you, bitch!" at someone -- it looks like her mother.

"Do I look f-cking high?!" she screams at someone else.

Later, Amber tells Brandi Glanville to "shut the f-ck up before I flip this f-cking table against your goddamn head," and while we don't know the context, it does seem to be a bit of an overreaction.

In another scene, this one with Matt, she tells him that he's a "piece of sh-t," to which he responds with an incredulous "really?"

"Why do you think I'm so angry?" she asks. "Because you hit me!"

Whoa.

So there's basically two things this could mean.

One, they did one of those therapeutic exercises that they do on the show, he accidentally hit her during it, and thanks to her clear anger issues during this time, it set her off.

Two, he was physically abusive to her during their relationship.

Unfortunately, there is some evidence to that second option -- for example, last summer, right around the time she would have been filming this, she admitted in an Instagram rant that she'd been the victim of domestic violence.

"I've been through domestic violence," she said then. "I was the one on the other f-cking end with the domestic violence -- it went both ways."

"However," she added, "I never opened my motherf-cking mouth about anybody ever f-cking hitting me! Anybody! Because that's what a real f-cking woman does!"

"That's what a real woman does. I can f-cking take that!"

Obviously that's not true, and it's really truly awful to state that "real women" don't seek help if they're being abused.

But Simon Saran, Farrah Abraham's sometimes boyfriend, claimed that this was true -- he even specified that "Matt has punched her on several occasions."

At the very least, we know that Amber is prone to violent relationships, because we saw her beat Gary Shirley more than once in the early seasons of Teen Mom.

There were also rumors that Amber was abusive to Matt, complete with a photo of Matt's injuries that he claimed were from a separate incident altogether.

It's all very, very suspicious, isn't it?

Check out Amber in action in the video below:

Amber Portwood’s Baby: Is It REALLY Matt Baier’s?!

If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, you've probably already heard that Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child.

You've also probably heard that Amber is pregnant by her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, and that the two of them appear to headed toward marriage.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

These days, it seems that Amber is eager to leave her painful past behind her and move on with Glennon into a brighter future.

Unfortunately, her past is well-documented, and some of the people and events she'd like to jettison were featured on very recent episodes of TMOG.

Take Amber's relationship with Matt Baier, for example.

Amber and Matt broke up over the summer.

These days, Baier is married and Amber is knocked up by someone else.

But none of that changes the fact that they were just engaged a few months ago, and their relationship remains a subject of fascination for many.

Amber Portwood, Matt Baier Selfie

And some of those folks believe there's something Matt and Amber aren't telling us.

Earlier this week, Glennon took to Instagram to reveal that Amber's due date is May 13.

“Now everyone can go see what or who Amber was doing on August 20, 2017,” tweeted one fan in response, hinting that Baier and Portwood were still romantically involved at that time.

“She was still sleeping with Matt then and I know this because I was talking to that loser,” one fan commented.

"It seems really close between the time Amber was last with Matt and when she got with Andrew. I think there’s definitely an overlap,” wrote another.

Interestingly, Amber has kept quiet on the matter thus far.

Amber Portwood Baby Bump with Andrew Glennon

However, a source close to the situation has come to her defense, claiming that Matt and Amber broke up several weeks before she became pregnant.

“That would be physically impossible,” the insider tells Radar Online.

“They broke up and he moved to Las Vegas on July 3. The baby had to be conceived in August. She never came to visit him in August.”

The source added:

“It’s definitely not his.”

For the sake of everyone involved, we hope this tipster speaks the truth.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online for more from the tumultuous life of Ms. Portwood.

Amber Portwood Debuts Baby Bump in Sweet New Family Photo

Even though Amber Portwood confirmed her pregnancy a while back, we actually saw her reveal that she's expecting to her mom and cousin just this week on the latest episode of Teen Mom OG.

But obviously, that episode was filmed months ago, and we haven't really had a good real time view of Amber for a while.

Amber Portwood in Good Light?

Until now, that is, because Amber has debuted her baby bump. Take a look at the photo she posted with her baby daddy-to-be below!

Right around Halloween, the world learned that Amber Portwood is pregnant again. Coming from Amber, that's not exactly a horror story.

(Coming from some of the scarily bad Teen Mom stars, it would be.)

Like Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter Leah, we hope that this pregnancy can indeed be Amber's new beginning.

Everyone hopes that she and Andrew Glennon can be great parents to this baby (and to Leah!) and maybe get a little better at managing her money.

Amber Portwood Baby Bump with Andrew Glennon

But that's in the future - Amber still has a long ways to go in her pregnancy, though she seems like she's handling it great thus far.

On a side note, yes, we know that their height difference is a lot. It's distracting, like the only thing you can focus on almost.

Even though Amber Portwood is tiny at only 5-foot-4, Andrew Glennon is still legit tall. The dude is 6-foot-7. In another era, he would have been a king's guard.

Or perhaps a king.

In this era, he works in television, but studies have shown that their height difference stacks the odds in their favor when it comes to relationship longevity.

Andrew Glennon and Leah Shirley

And yes, we know that it's weird. So is romance. So is human nature.

Anyway, once you get past the height difference, check out that baby bump.

Andrew Glennon seems to be settling in and becoming a part of Amber Portwood's family.

Not everyone is prepared to become a reality star overnight. Especially when it happens via a Teen Mom OG cast member.

(And especially since it's rumored that Andrew Glennon, or at least his family, may be well off financially.)

But Andrew's taken to it like a duck to water. Mostly.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon, Headed to Malibu

Some still say that Andrew Glennon may have acted improperly and seduced Amber when she was emotionally vulnerable, but ... we're not sure if that flies anymore.

They're still together and this is clearly more than a fling.

As you may recall, this pregnancy wasn't exactly planned. Amber and Andrew had only been dating for a matter of months when Amber became pregnant.

Even so, they're making the best of it.

In late 2017, Amber announced that she's expecting a boy.

She plans to name him James.

We don't know the day that she'll give birth - quite frankly, even the best due date is just a highly educated guess.

Some observers have speculated that she could give birth to the young one as early as May of this year.

Will Amber Portwood get things right this time, as a mother and as a partner, and truly turn over a new leaf?

Will Andrew Glennon stick around in this (still new) relationship long enough for little James Glennon to grow up with two parents?

For that matter, will Leah enjoy being a big sister or will the novelty of having a baby brother wear off quickly?

All that we can do is hope for the best.

The only thing that most fans can say with certainty is that this whole situation seems to be much, much better than anything from the days of that total creep, Matt Baier.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Stay Fertile My Friends

This week on Teen Mom OG, one cast member shocked her whole family when she reveals that she is pregnant once again.

Meanwhile, another who hoped to follow in those same fertile footsteps took the surprising step of having her IUD removed.

Tyler and Catelynn Lowell

There were birthdays, weddings and custody issues to be talked about too, making for an eventful installment of the MTV hit.

We begin with Catelynn Lowell, who actually took a pregnancy test just in case she was pregnant, but did so on the DL. Why?

Just in case since if she was pregnant, she said, she wanted to keep it from Tyler so she could surprise him in some cute way.

It turns out that she was ... and she did!

When he got home, her daughter Nova was outfitted in a shirt saying: “I’m going to be a big sister!” Tyler was ... kinda confused.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Snuggles

“Why do we have that shirt?” Tyler asked.

"Because she’s gonna be a big sister!” Catelynn responded, and brought out the positive test, and told him she'd taken three others.

“You’re a fertile myrtle,” he replied.

We don't know what that means, but sadly, we know what happens next: Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage shortly after.

In this case, knowing the details of the lives of these quasi-celebrities before they play out on screen puts a damper on things.

We just hope Catelynn is doing alright, and that her latest trip to rehab (reportedly being filmed for the show) is successful.

Mackenzie, Ryan and Bentley

In Tennessee, Ryan Edwards finally got to spend time with Bentley on his ninth birthday, though not without mire controversy.

Maci Bookout didn’t have the drug test results she demanded before she would let her first-born son be around Ryan alone.

According to Ryan, he had taken and passed such a test administered by his lawyers; Maci simply hadn’t asked for the results.

It's unclear where the truth lies, but his parents, Larry and Jen, picked up the adorable boy and arrived at the house with Ryan.

He didn’t even get off the couch, which was strange, but they did appear to have a good time together after that awkwardness.

Maci Tells It Like It Is

On the plus side, Ryan's wife Mackenzie Standifer texted Maci Bookout letting her know that she was invited to their wedding.

Their whole family was, including Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, and their kids. So that's a really positive sign for everyone.

In the Wild, Wonderful World of Farrah Abraham, she and her oft-estranged mother Debra went on a karaoke girls night out.

Debra again asked Farrah and Sophia to attend her wedding, and again was rebuffed, as Farrah really, really doesn't like David.

Finally, Amber Portwood broke the news of her pregnancy to her mom and her cousin Krystal during this week’s installment.

Amber Portwood in Good Light?

Her mom's response, not unlike ours:

“Shut up, are you serious?”

Amber's mother admitted that she was in shock and didn’t know Andrew well, hence her less-than-enthralled initial reaction.

The expectant couple was upset that word of the pregnancy made its way online before they told Andrew’s family personally.

No one knows (including Amber and Andrew) who talked to the media about this, but we're looking at you, Jenelle Evans.

Just kidding. Sort of. Not really. Maybe.

Andrew wondered if Gary Shirley, the father of Amber's daughter Leah, was the one who leaked the story. Amber doubted that.

Gary did speak to his wife, Kristina Anderson, about the pregnancy in private, musing on how this presents an opportunity.

“They could be great parents. It could be Amber’s second chance,” Gary told Kristina. “I hope that she takes care of the kid.”

Don't we all.

Amber Portwood: Screw Everyone, I’m a GREAT Mother!

Amber Portwood has never been one to bite her tongue, that's for sure.

To be clear, she's always ready to throw down if she feels she's been wronged in any way at all.

Amber Portwood at 2017 VMAs

Remember that legendary Teen Mom OG reunion show, the one where she threw a punch at Farrah because she agreed with Simon Saran that Matt Baier "looked like a pedophile"?

If she's willing to get violent on national television over some nonsense like that -- and she definitely always is -- then there's really no telling what could set her off.

But currently, insults about her parenting skills have really been getting her going.

Maybe it's because she's expecting her second child, maybe it's because she's off her meds for her mental illnesses, but she's been particularly sensitive about the subject lately.

In a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, she said that she hadn't seen her daughter, Leah, "in I don't know how f-cking long because I'm so afraid of her to see me. I have to be in a good state in order to be around her."

She said that she was too depressed to see Leah, but in another scene, Kristina (Gary Shirley's wife and Leah's amazing stepmother) revealed that Leah had only seen her mom twice during her entire summer vacation.

Amber got bashed so hard for that that she felt the need to address the matter on Twitter, where she wrote that she was "sick and tired" of the criticism.

She blamed her breakup with Matt, explaining that "People go through horrible times when they split and I'm no exception! I was depressed and horribly sad so I did the best thing and made sure my daughter was protected!"

"To shame a mother for keeping a child happy and safe from there own depression is disturbing!" she added.

"And to think I have to explain myself for a horrible point in life is even more degrading!"

The drama died down, as it always does, but it heated up again last week when, after watching the new episode, Amber tweeted that she's "been through hell" by being on the show.

"MTV has turned my pregnancy and this relationship into a joke in one of the happiest time of my life," she complained. "Apparently my life is just for people to tell me how horrible I am as a mother because I went through depression!"

It's weird, because it seems like she's using "depression" and "single" interchangeably, right?

We have no doubt that she was depressed, but she still managed to find herself a new boyfriend. And as we saw in last night's episode, she stopped taking her meds (including her birth control) because she was happy with Andrew.

And that's the story of how she got pregnant with a guy she knew for approximately two seconds.

Look, it's a whole lot to unpack, but the gist of it all is that Amber isn't terribly active in Leah's life, but she's having another baby with a practical stranger anyway, and a lot of people don't think it's a great idea.

That's where this ridiculous new story comes in.

Amber shared a sneak peek over the weekend that showed her announcing her pregnancy to MTV crew members, and one of her followers responded with this gem:

"So are we going to ignore the fact that she just broke up with Matt and now with Father Time and moved him in and.... now pregnant?"

It's a solid question, and we're definitely behind the "Father Time" nickname for Andrew.

But surprisingly, Amber didn't appreciate it.

"I broke up with Matt May 14 lol," she replied. "He just didn't move out until after boot camp."

"Honestly you guys comment on sh-t and dont even understand how tv works. Everything your watching is almost 6 months behind real life. Keep watching."

Well, that's not really the issue here -- everyone understands that the show doesn't air immediately after the footage is filmed.

The issue is that people know how time works, and they see the things she posts on social media, so it's not hard to figure out the timeline here.

And the fact is that Amber did get pregnant remarkably fast after dumping Matt and getting with Andrew.

Another of her followers advised her to get out of the reality television gig if she didn't want the criticism, but someone else argued that she couldn't quit because "then she won't be able to sleep all day and find men."

"Leah said mommy is always sleeping or in the bed," this sassy tweeter continued. "I guess with a new baby she might have to be active."

That was more than enough to set Amber off.

"You are gross honey," she wrote. "Don't talk about me like some amateur sweety I've been doing this for 10 years and have saved more lives then any of you sh-t talkers."

WHAT?!

"That's all that matters," she added. "My baby was commenting on me being depressed. Go be gross and ugly somewhere else. My life is great."

Is it though, girl? Is it really?

Teen Mom OG Recap: Let’s Try That Again

This week on Teen Mom OG, Farrah helped Michael plan his proposal, while Catelynn freaked out again and Tyler became overwhelmed.

At the same time, Maci and Taylor celebrated their anniversary, but was a dark cloud hovering over the joyous occasion?

Perhaps most significantly, Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 9 began with a pregnancy reveal. How's that for burying the lede?

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon confessed to the show’s producers and revealed that they were indeed expecting.

Since they don't use birth control, so Amber said she wasn't surprised it happened despite only knowing him for three months.

We don't even know where to start with that.

Amber also revealed that she stopped taking her medication for bipolar disorder after meeting Glennon, as she no longer needs it.

Glennon

He's so much more positive than anyone she's ever known, she says, so she can get by without the drugs, she now believes.

Andrew went on to say that he wasn't looking for a relationship, but that “something gravitational” brought the couple together.

He admitted the idea of raising a baby makes him “slightly terrified” but at the same time this just “feels so right” with Portwood.

Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were gearing up to launch their clothing line, but that stressed Tyler out big time.

Between that, trying to finish their house and take care of his dad, he was running on fumes and suffering from low self-esteem.

Tyler and Catelynn

In Italy, Farrah Abraham helped her father Michael propose to his girlfriend, with a poem that ended with a proposal (she said yes).

Even Farrah's mom, Debra Danielsen, offered them congratulations and an engagement gift before they all went out to dinner.

Because she had to get in at least one good dose of drama per episode, Farrah said vacations are better without Deb's fiancé.

Finally, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney were celebrating their anniversary when Amber told them she was pregnant via text.

The topic of more children then took over their dinner, with Maci telling her husband she wasn't nuts about having another.

She said she'd like to adopt in a year or two, but right now, the idea of having another biological child feels a bit daunting to her.

Taylor feels at least somewhat more strongly about it, and Maci said that if he really wanted to, she'd do it, but ASAP please.

She also brought up the fact that they had miscarried earlier that year, something McKinney did not want to discuss on MTV.

They hadn’t yet told their families about this, but Maci felt it was important to have this conversation in front of their audience.

Matt Baier: CAUGHT Cheating On New Wife! (Exclusive)

Back in November, Teen Mom OG fans were stunned by the news that Amber Portwood's ex-fiancé, Matt Baier, had gotten married.

The announcement came as a shock, not only because Matt and Amber had only broken up a few months earlier, but also because the public wasn't even aware that Matt was dating anyone.

We later learned that Matt and Jennifer Conlon got hitched after just a few weeks of dating.

Fans on social media offered words of caution about Baier, whose sketchy behavior was well-documented during his time on MTV.

Conlon dismissed their concerns, but new evidence obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Gossip suggests she may want to consider the possibility that Matt is every bit as shady as he appears...

1. The Baier Truth

Matt baier is perplexed
Matt didn't earn a lot of fans during his time as a reality star, thanks in part to allegations of unpaid child support, infidelity, and drug use. He claims he was misrepresented on the show, but evidence obtained by The Hollywood Gossip indicates that Matt may have already been unfaithful to his new wife...

2. Meet Mimi

A woman identified only by the alias "Mimi" revealed to us that she and Baier have been carrying on an online relationship that has continued despite the fact that he's now married to Conlon. "Matt and I met on Snapchat a couple of months ago, and when he sent the message saying he was deleting his Snapchat, I asked him about it and he sent me his number and said to keep it private, we have texted almost every day since, and he even calls me every now and then," Mimi claims.

3. Married Matt

When Matt got married, Mimi eventually found out about it ... but not from Baier: "There was about a 2 day span where he 'disappeared' on me, which as I found out was when he got married. It has been confirmed to me from an editor at another gossip site/magazine that he is in fact married and that the number I have is really his number," she writes us.

4. The Con Is On

In the past, Baier has been accused of using women (with Amber being his most famous victim, of course), and it looks as though he may be repeating that pattern with Mimi: "He is supposed to be leaving Vegas tomorrow to come see me, but I get the feeling he isn’t coming. I sent him money for travel(yes that was stupid, but I also thought if I funded the trip then he would actually come). I think he will either make some excuse not to leave tomorrow, and use the money, or stop talking to me completely."

5. Still Hopeful?

Matt baier is lame
Mimi says she remained optimistic regarding her future with Matt despite mounting evidence that he's not to be trusted. "I hope he does actually come here. I have been nothing but nice to Matt, and he has done nothing but lie to me. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt as I do with most anyone, but apparently the tabloids and tv have proved to be right," she says.

6. A Familiar Pattern

"Matt tells me he is in love with me, and we are together, and he even wants to get married. I guarantee when busted he will deny it," Mimi writes. She's even attempted to enlist the help of some of Baier's fellow MTV stars in hopes of exposing his cheating ways ...

Amber Portwood: $100,000 in Debt! Behind on Child Support!

Like so many of her Teen Mom OG co-stars, Amber Portwood supplements her TV income with a number of side hustles.

Amber has a clothing line; she makes paid appearances, and she's even authored a memoir.

Amber Portwood Reacts

But apparently, all those side gigs aren't paying the bills, because according to a new report from Radar Online, Amber has racked up some serious debt over the course of the past year.

Fans started to take an interest in Amber's finances after Gary Shirley revealed on a recent episode of Teen Mom OG that Amber is way behind on her child support payments.

“She owes me $9,600,” Shirley told his wife Kristina Anderson.

“Amber is not there. She is a come and go kind of mom. I don’t think her head is in kid mode.”

During the episode, Amber claimed on Twitter that she'd made Gary rich, but it seems she's having a bit of trouble fattening her own pockets.

According to Radar, Amber owes $134,919 in back taxes and seems to have no intention of repaying her debt.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

She was first hit with a lien from the government back in February of 2016.

Thus far, it seems she's made no effort to get out from under that sizable debt.

“There is a tax, but no release,” an official from the Clerk of Court for Madison County Court in Indiana tells Radar.

These days, Amber is pregnant with Andrew Glennon's baby, and it seems her new baby daddy isn't a whole lot better off financially.

Radar reports that Glennon was recently hit with a judgment from a collection agency for nearly $9,000.

Amber Portwood in Good Light?

The case was reportedly settled in August, but Glennon has yet to make a payment on the outstanding debt.

The sizable debts are surprising, as both Amber and Andrew have successful television careers (he's a producer for WeTV's Marriage Boot Camp), and Amber's aforementioned side jobs have reportedly been profitable.

Teen Mom franchise salaries are typically in the mid-six figure range, so Amber must be doing some serious spending to land so deeply in the red. 

We guess the situation will serve to bolster Farrah Abraham's argument that Amber is the "worst mom."

Watch Teen Mom OG online for more from the always-divisive Ms. Portwood.

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley: I Made You Rich, Loser!

If you watched this week's episode of Teen Mom OG, then you know that Amber Portwood didn't exactly come off looking great.

But amazingly, her tweets during the show proved even more damaging to her reputation!

Amber on Teen Mom

The episode sees Amber's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, voicing some of the same criticisms that fans have been directing at Amber in recent months.

Like so many of the show's viewers, Gary and Kristina apparently feel that Amber should've spent more time looking into Andrew Glennon's sketchy past before she started dating him seriously and got pregnant with his baby.

Not only that, they take issue with Amber not seeing her daughter for months and using her depression as a justification--despite the fact that she was apparently mentally healthy enough to begin dating Glennon.

Maybe Amber was depressed, and maybe too much is being made of Glennon's past, but it's not hard to see why a father and stepmother might be concerned by the situation.

And Gary voiced those concerns at length in the episode:

Gary on Teen Mom OG

"I don’t know what skeletons he has in his closet, but honestly, she should have waited," he said to Kristina.

"She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility as being a mother than jumping into a relationship. Well, she was, like, 'I was mourning.' I know that you’re sad after breaking up with someone — I get it."

"But your daughter can bring you just as much happiness," Kristina interjected.

Not surprisingly, Gary agreed:

"From day one I’ve been a parent! From day one my issues never came in and stopped me from being a dad, you know?" he continued.

"I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you can go off and do what you want to do. I mean, that would be f--king awesome! You know? And you’re OK with it because you’re used to it. But you know, there’s one person that’s not OK with it, and that’s Leah."

From there, Kristina spiked the football by recounting a recent exchange with Leah:

"It’s just like she told me, you know? 'Matt was in the picture. Mommy broke up with Matt. Mommy don’t come around then because she’s too depressed,'" she recalled.

"But then, all of a sudden, she brings over Andrew and she says: 'Well Kristina, if she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?' And, you know, what do I say to that?"

Gary then recalled a period of time in which Leah was so depressed by her mother's absence that she did nothing but sleep.

"Let's adopt Leah," Kristina proposed.

"I'm with you," Gary replied.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

Not surprisingly, Amber had much to say about the situation on social media:

"Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be?" she tweeted.

"Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!"

And if you thought she'd stop there, you don't know Amber:

"[Kristina] broke up her family for money and tv!" Amber tweeted, targeting Gary's wife.

"Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!"

"Restraining order to keep my child from filming," Kristina replied.

"I am an active mother to my children so quit hating. I’ve never stepped on your toes as a mother nor will I ever. I care for Leah when she is in our care. Love don’t hate."

Then things got even more bizarre when Farrah Abraham's father, Michael, interjected:

"Kristina stay strong. DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY you. You’re the real proven mother figure here," Michael tweeted.

"Gary has always been the rock solid father protecting his children with you in full support and I’m thankful to God for both of you – the world knows the truth and that’s pure FACT."

We'd say this situation can't get any weirder, but Michael Abraham just got involved, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up on all of this season's intense drama.

Farrah Abraham SLAMS Amber Portwood: You’re the Worst Mom!
