Catelynn Lowell Speaks Out on Amber Portwood Abuse Allegations: Violence Is Never Okay

Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested on domestic violence charges after allegedly assaulting boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

At the time, several of Portwood’s Teen Mom OG castmates stood by her side, including Catelynn Lowell, who tweeted that fans should wait until they have all the facts and refrain from rushing to judgment.

Of course, Lowell’s comments were made prior to the release of shocking new audio recordings in which Portwood can be heard threatening to stab Glennon.

Now, Catelynn is speaking out again — but instead of defending Amber, she’s defending victims everywhere.

Take a look:

1. The Best of Friends

Few people can relate to the unique struggles Amber and Catelynn have faced over the course of the past decade, so it should come as no surprise that the reality stars developed a close friendship.

2. When Loyalty Creates Problems

So it makes sense that, along with the rest of the Moms, Catelynn’s first instinct was to defend and support her longtime friend.

3. Course Correction

However, that doesn’t make it right — a fact that Lowell now seems to realize.

4. Shocking Evidence

Yes, it’s important to be loyal to your friends, but it’s more important to be loyal to your own code of ethics, and it seems that the newly-leaked audio recordings of Amber and Andrew’s arguments served as a wake-up call for Catelynn.

5. Trigger Warning

In a pair of recordings first obtained by Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball, Amber physically attacks Andrew, threatens him with further bodily harm, and fantasizes about him being gang-raped.

6. Horrifying

It’s not hard to see why Catelynn and many others who may have been inclined to side with Amber underwent an abrupt change of heart after listening to the audio.

Dancing With the Stars: Who Will Win Season 28?

ABC scraped the bottom of the barrel while casting Dancing With the Stars Season 28. 

Some of the casting decisions are downright bizarre, but who will win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy?

That’s the big question, and with a cast as random as this one, it really will come down to the wire. 

Weirdly, ABC decided against revealing who these celebrities are being paired up with — presumably to get people to watch live. 

It’s a weird decision for sure, and one that makes it difficult to forecast which of these celebrities will make it far. 

But that didn’t stop us from rounding up how we think things will shake out. 

Scroll down and pick your favorite now!

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, September 16 at 8/7c. 

1. Sean Spicer – 300-1

He wasn’t very good at being the White House press secretary, and nothing about gives us much faith that he will make it far in the competition. Heck, his casting alone caused a social media frenzy, with many bashing the show for casting him. If the viewing audience continue to have an impact on the game, then look for this loser to get the boot. We’re sure he’ll have a press release ready to go in which he tries to spin the whole thing in his favor. It’s what he does.

2. Lamar Odom – 40-1

Lamar only seems to have success in the NBA. He can’t hold down a successful relationship. Add in the fact that NBA players don’t have the best track record in the ballroom. It will all come down to which returning pro he is paired with, but for now, don’t expect much.

3. Ray Lewis – 35-1

Ray has been outed as a liar, so it’s hard to believe that this disgraced pro football player will garner much traction.

4. Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook – 30-1

Sailor was a last-minute addition because her mother had to exit the series due to an injury during rehearsals. She’s young and should do better than some of the others. But the jury is well and truly out on this one.

5. Kate Flannery – 25-1

The Office remains as one of the most popular shows around thanks to the world of streaming. The fans will want to keep Kate in the competition — even if she isn’t cutting the right shapes. It’s sad, but it’s true. This series is a popularity contest.

6. Mary Wilson – 20-1

Dancing With the Stars appeals to the older audience — the ones who were probably around when the Supremes were a thing. That should keep Mary in the competitive loop for a while. But she will need to bring her A-game if she wants to make it to the end.
