Earlier this week, Amber Portwood “quit” Teen Mom OG.
And by that, we mean she took to social media to whine about the world’s cushiest six-figure job, but never actually tendered her resignation.
She was bluffing, seemingly in hopes that her bosses would offer her the world in order to convince her to stay.
It didn’t work, and now, Portwood is pulling out all the stops by having her long-suffering boyfriend speak out on her behalf.
Here’s what we currently know about this increasingly bizarre situation:
1. Andrew’s Burden
2. Amber’s Rage
3. The Man For the Job?
4. Doing His Best
5. Rushing to Amber’s Defense
6. Is She REALLY Done With the Show?
Ranking Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 couples through the years is a challenging, arduous task, but one The Hollywood Gossip is up for.
Hey, someone’s gotta.
If you’re a fan of the MTV franchise, you’ve seen quite a few significant others come and go, while some have been longtime staples.
Some relationships have been terrific, while others were (or are) utter train wrecks. Here, we break them all down from worst to first.
NOTE: Due to his tragic death before Farrah Abraham gave birth to their daughter Sophia, Derek Underwood has been left off this list.
Also notably absent is Andrew Lewis, the father of Jenelle Evans’ son Jace, and a man of whom almost nothing is known to this day.
Everyone else, however, is fair game … from the present to the distant past! Who do you think ranks number one? Do you agree?
25. Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers
24. Jenelle Evans and Kieffer Delp
23. Amber Portwood and Matt Baier
22. Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon just welcomed their first child together, an absolutely precious little boy named James.
But you know what’s not so precious?
The way Amber pretty much lied about how they started dating.
To recap, we saw the beginning — or what we thought was the beginning — of their relationship on the last season of Teen Mom OG.
When Amber and Andrew went public with their love last August, she explained in an interview that although he had been working on the set of Marriage Boot Camp while she was filming her season with Matt Baier, they didn’t interact.
“He didn’t really know who I was and we didn’t talk on the show because, you know, he would get in trouble,” she said then, “but I didn’t even know that he even liked me.”
“It just simply was he had a little crush on me.”
She said that he contacted her a few weeks after the show wrapped, and that “we decided we just wanted to be friends at first,” but then he came out to visit her and there was more of a spark between them.
When she introduced Andrew on Teen Mom OG, she said that they were taking things slow and just getting to know each other.
She got pregnant about three seconds after he came in for his visit, so obviously things didn’t work out that way, but that was her story.
Now, thanks to a super juicy little sneak peek for this week’s episode of Marriage Boot Camp, we know that her story was a lie.
This week we’ll be treated to a “Secrets Revealed” episode of the show — special little moments that they couldn’t fit into the rest of the season.
If you watch the video, you’ll see a bunch of dramatic clips from the other guests on the show, but if you make it all the way to the end, you’ll see our Amber.
First, we see her pointing towards the camera, telling someone “I’m gonna figure out your name” — the insinuation, of course, that she was talking to Andrew.
Next, we hear about “the Teen Mom hookup that shocked America,” and someone from production says that “we never had a crew member impregnate a Boot Camper before.”
He didn’t impregnate her on the show (she would have conceived in August), but we do see him creeping into a bedroom.
After that, the guy doing the dramatic voiceover for the trailer informs us that “our cameras caught everything” while the camera shows a bed with a big “censored” box over it.
And then — brace yourselves — we actually hear Amber go “oh my god.”
Like, maybe in a sexy way.
Because as those of us well-versed in reality shows know, bedrooms are not off-limits for filming, and there are always cameras set up permanently in those rooms to get any footage the crew may miss.
So if, as this trailer suggests, Amber and Andrew had sex on set, they most certainly would have been caught.
There’s a lot to unpack here, huh?
For one, this means that Amber lied about when she met Andrew, which is pretty dumb, considering she had to know that this would come out.
For two, it means that Andrew was really creeping on her that hard that he tried to hook up with her during filming.
Like, he saw her slamming back drinks and going off on everyone about everything, and he thought “yeah, I need to get with that kind of lady.”
For three, this is a compilation episode of scenes throughout the season, so was Matt still around when these two started talking? Did she cheat on him?
This is a whole, whole lot of drama, and while we’re sad that none of it was in Teen Mom or in the actual season of Marriage Boot Camp, we’ll take what we can get!
See the footage for yourself in the video below:
Earlier this week, Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood welcomed a baby boy.
It’s her second child, and the first for her baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.
Today, Amber released the first photos of little James Andrew Glennon (or JAG, as we like to call him), and fans can’t get enough of her newest bundle of joy.
Amber’s co-stars have also been gushing about baby James.
In fact, even Portwood’s biggest rivals appear to have offered an olive branch in honor of the latest addition to the Teen Mom OG family …
1. Amber Portwood and Son
2. Sweet Baby James!
3. Leah and James
4. All the Support
5. The Name James, Though…
6. Back to the Positive
Amber Portwood is now a mother of two!
Early this morning, she gave birth to James Andrew Glennon, her second child and her first with Andrew Glennon.
But while the baby news is very exciting, we’re still super intrigued by her relationship with Andrew.
And that’s for many, many reasons …
3. What a Gem!
4. Falling in Love
5. Weaseling In
6. Not a Great Start
When Amber Portwood first met Andrew Glennon, she was still engaged to Matt Baier.
One month after the couple began dating, Amber got pregnant with her second child.
Shortly thereafter, Glennon abandoned his life in LA in order to move to Indiana to be with Amber.
Needless to say, these two don’t believe in wasting time, but just because their relationship has been moving quickly, that doesn’t mean either of them are actually happy with their circumstances.
In fact, those who know their situation best say Amber and Andrew’s relationship is “messy” at best and downright disastrous at worst…
