Amber Portwood and Dimitri Garcia: We’re Back Together!!

On the season premiere of Teen Mom OG, fans watched Amber Portwood break up with Dimitri Garcia.

She had felt overwhelmed and hounded by her Belgian beau and was alarmed by his “controlling” behavior.

But that was filmed months ago.

These days, it seems, Amber has changed her tune.

Amber Portwood spoke to In Touch Weekly this week after fans watched her ditch Dimitri.

“It’s been 11 months since I’ve seen him,” she confirmed, meaning that she last saw him (of course) before the COVID-19 pandemic hit North America.

“But,” she emphasized, “we do talk.”

Still, Amber tells the tabloid that she and Dimitri are “dating” … in a manner of speaking.

She explains: “I call it ‘COVID dating’ because it’s over the phone, you know what I mean?”

“So I’m not going out and dating guys,” Amber clarifies. “I’m not doing anything like that.”

Amber says that she has received backlash from her own fans for choosing to date remotely.

But she says that online daying is “one of the number one ways” to meet people in 2021.

Honestly, that was true in 2019, too. Now it’s just more or less the only safe way to date, period, in the US.

“To be honest, I’m over, you know, reading stuff about that,” Amber says of the hate that she gets.

“As if I’m some weirdo that if somebody pops up in my DMs,” she says, “I’m just like, yeah, let’s get this going.”

Amber jokes: “If that was the case, I would have freakin’ 3,000 guys a day, but anyway. I mean, seriously.”

Amber raves that her on-again boyfriend stood out in the crowd, in part because he’s not a superfan.

She praises Dimitri for being “very sweet, honest, and genuine,” adding that he “took the lie detector test and passed it.”

Amber acknowledges that she “might have been a little crazy for asking,” but also that she “needed that to happen.”

On Teem Mom OG, we saw a different side of Amber, as she felt exhasperated that Dimitri was calling her nonstop.

“I need to be aware of this dynamic,” Amber explained, “because I’ve been in controlling relationships before.”

“He’s possessive from a distance,” she observed, adding that “he needs to know what I’m doing all day every day.”

Just after we saw her share these sentiments with the camera, Amber received a video call from Dimitri, who of course was back in Belgium and wanted to know what she was up to.

“Nothing, I’m outside, wondering why I’m getting a million messages,” Amber said.

Dimitri tried to justify his creepy, coming-on-too-strong behavior “because I think of you. I love you, I miss you a lot.”

Amber explained at the time that she was starting to “feel like it’s getting a little much” for her.

“It’s turning into a very possessive situation and a very not healthy situation…” she worried.

“To be questioned by somebody so much at a time like this,” Amber added, “is just something that is not needed for me whatsoever when I’m dating.”

“We’re not boyfriend and girlfriend,” Amber later told her first baby daddy, Gary Shirley.

She complained: “He started getting to the point where he was calling and texting multiple, multiple, multiple times, all day long.”

We had previously reported that it looked like they had split last July, so many believe that this is when this was filmed. Clearly, they are now on better terms.

Teen Mom OG Season 9 Trailer: "Why Do We Have Kids?!?"

Those who are old are about to be new again.

MTV has unveiled the first official trailer for Teen Mom OG Season 9, which the network says will air in a new year — with new hopes and new goals for all the main women involved.

“When you’re a mom, there’s never a moment to slow down – even if a global pandemic throws the world into chaos,” reads the MTV press release in promotion of Season 9.

Indeed, these upcoming episodes were filmed months ago.

But COVID-19 has been raging throughout 2020, meaning Amber, Catelynn, Cheyenne, Maci and Mackenzie will be dealing not just with the craziness of their personal lives…

… but with the outbreak of a deadly virus as well.

Continues the same press release:

So, the moms of “Teen Mom OG” are barreling forward and making major moves faster than ever.

Amber, Catelynn, Cheyenne, Maci and Mackenzie continue to share their most personal struggles and achievements leaning into the turmoil of today’s “new normal” with resilience and grit.

Through good and bad times, these women can always find the bright side for themselves and their kids.

The trailer says the long-time stars will “rise up” against the adversity, despite one young lady wondering — mostly in jest, we think — why the heck she had kids.

As for what Teen Mom OG fans can expect from each cast member?

Amber Portwood will contemplate moving onto Gary’s property after her relationship with her daughter Leah grows strained.

Catelynn Lowell will suffer a miscarriage and bravely shares her story to help others.

Cheyenne Floyd will rekindlee a romance with her ex-boyfriend Zach — and their relationship will escalate quickly.

It becomes even more real, the network teases, when they find out they’re expecting! EEEEK!

Maci will put her personal feelings aside to support Bentley when he takes the steps necessary to repair his relationship with his dad, Ryan.

And, finally, Mackenzie’s marriage to Josh will be crumbling… so she will make a drastic change and move her family to Florida for a business opportunity.

As we know, of course, this doesn’t exactly mean she’s done with her cheating husband.

Not by a long shot.

Teen Mom OG Season 9 premiere on January 26, 2021.

Check out the preview featured here to see what’s on tap.

And, specifically, to find out which star is convinced by her child that french fries dipped in milk might actually taste great.

Teen Mom: How Do They Make SO MUCH MONEY?!

One of the coolest things about being on Teen Mom is that you can totally make a lot of money for you and your family.

Like, a lot.

The moms and original dads of the MTV franchise make hundreds of thousands per season, if you can even believe it.

They also get to travel for free when filming, which is pretty neat since we’ve been seeing more vacations on the show.

At least in pre-Covid times. Anyway …

But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places these days.

“Like where?” you may be wondering.

Well, wonder no further …

Not only do we have the freshest intel on how the Moms make their loot, we finally know exactly who’s the wealthiest.

So scroll on for the latest, and as a bonus you can enjoy the slow financial declines of Jenelle Evans. You know you’ve been waiting for this!

1. Dang

As we’ve said, the original cast members — the moms and the dads of their first children — all make the same amount, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 to $400,000 a season. But what else does everyone do?

2. Jumping Right In

Before we get to HOW they make their money, let’s give you what you came here for: the info on how much the cast members are reportedly worth. Keep in mind that it’s difficult to know exactly what a celebrity’s net worth is, especially when you consider how much some of the Teen Mom crew spends in lawyer fees, but we’ll do our best, OK?

3. Jade Cline – $250,000

Jade is a newcomer, which means her salary isn’t as high as the other girls’. But she’s got some side hustles (like selling diet gummies), and she’s already attained a net worth of around $250,000.

4. Cheyenne Floyd – $450,000

Cheyenne is also one of the newer cast members, but at the time she joined the cast, she was already known to some fans from her appearances on Are You The One. Ms. Floyd is worth $450,000.

5. Jenelle Evans – $30,000

There was a time that Jenelle’s net worth was much, much higher — just a few years ago, it was reported to be around $2 million. However, more recent reports claim that she’s now worth about $30,000. This makes sense, considering she doesn’t appear on the show anymore and she and David Eason have burned through so much of her reality show fortune paying for lawyers and court fees.

6. Briana DeJesus – $750,000

Yes, believe it or not, multiple outlets list Jenelle Evans’ net worth at half a million dollars. We find that hard to believe, especially since she appears to be broke as a joke these days. More on that later.

Teen Mom: The Most Insane Feuds in Franchise History! Ranked!

From on-camera brawls to social media feuds and legal threats, the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 sure know how to go hard.

Engagements. Breakups. Marriages. Babies. 

Moments that made you cringe ’cause they were so painful, or smile ear-to-ear. Scenes that were fights, or made you fight back tears.

The franchise really does have it all, and as such, it’s become one of the most entertaining in the history of the reality TV genre.

Below, we look back at some of the MTV gang’s most explosive feuds, and however you might rank them, this much is undeniable:

Way back then. Not so way back then. Last year. Last month. Last week. Probably right now. There is no shortage of beef.

NOTE: We’ve saved the craziest for last, so we suggest that you a deep breath, sit back, grab a hat and hold the f–k onto it …

36. Briana DeJesus vs. Leah Messer (and Others)

When Briana DeJesus joined the Teen Mom 2 cast in 2017, she was not welcomed with open arms. In fact, she quickly became persona non grata at her first get-together with the cast – with one exception. Jenelle Evans, Briana said, “is the only one who was acting like her s–t ain’t stink. Plus she was the only one who wasn’t acting fake and choosing sides.” Leah Messer’s response was to “pay no attention to those who try to bring you down … they’re just envious of where you are and how well you’re doing.” As we’ll get to in a bit, relations haven’t exactly gotten more amicable since.

35. Maci Bookout vs. Taylor McKinney

Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney’s relationship has produced three kids, and they seem very happily married … most of the time. Like, 85 percent of the time. Bookout alarmed fans with the confession a few years ago that revealed some trouble in paradise: “Eighty-five percent of the time we’re good to go … Fifteen percent is hell. All of our stress and emotions, we take out on each other. When the cameras leave, we’ll drink and freak out. It’s always literally the smallest things. It’s such small stuff but it blows up. It’s not going to go away.” Yikes … but at least they’ve had plenty of time to work on things?

34. Jenelle Evans vs. Chelsea Houska

So Jenelle has this weird thing about Chelsea — she accused her of copying her because she made a website for herself after she’d already made her own, because making a website is something totally special and unique. She also kind of accused Chelsea of copying her when she gave birth to Watson the day after Jenelle gave birth to Ensley, which is just wild. On another occasion, Jenelle went off about Chelsea ignoring her older daughter, Aubree, after having Watson, insinuating that she’s a bad mother. Chelsea liked a tweet from someone who called Jenelle “pathetic” for bringing up Aubree, which is pretty much the most she’s ever participated in this feud.

33. Kailyn Lowry vs. Barbara Evans

This one is pretty weird — one time Babs “jokingly” threatening to “kill Kail” during an Instagram Live session with Jenelle. Lowry was understandably not amused and threatened to quit the show over Barbara’s threats. That didn’t happen, of course, and it’s no longer an issue since Jenelle and her family are no longer on the show, but how bizarre, right?

32. Jeremy Calvert vs. Brooke Wehr

Brooke Wehr was never a Teen Mom 2 cast member, but due to her mercurial relationship with Jeremy Calvert, her impact was felt just the same. A few years ago, the couple’s engagement ended after Brooke accused Jeremy of cheating on her with multiple women, one being a Teen Mom 2 producer, another being her best friend, and a third possibly being his ex-wife Leah Messer. Brooke even shared a screen shot of a text message conversation between Jeremy and the best friend as proof, while Calvert responded in a drunken stupor that yes, maybe he did sleep with Brooke’s best friend, but … only because Wehr slept with some other guy first. Or, as he put it, Brooke was “f-cking his brains out, every day,” and he was single, so “my dick was happy to do whatever the f-ck it wanted to do, and it did.” Shocking that these two didn’t work out … but neither party was completely off base with their allegations. Just saying. Jeremy and Leah did hook up.

31. Briana DeJesus vs. Luis Miguel

Briana hooked up with Luis in a bathroom while she was drunk, and she got pregnant. They tried to make a relationship work, but he cheated on her and was generally just not great. He’s never really been around for their daughter, Stella, but he did come back around last year for a bit. Briana even decided to give him another shot — except this time, she got the clap. So yeah, they’re not on the best terms.
