Amber Portwood: FINALLY Being Fired from Teen Mom OG After Abuse Scandal?!

Remember when Amber Portwood got out of prison and everyone thought there was a chance that she’d changed and was going to turn her life around?

Boy, she proved that wrong, huh?

Things got very, very bad with Matt Baier, who she started dating a few minutes after she got out of prison, but her relationship with Andrew Glennon?

Well, we keep getting more and more proof about what a disaster that really was.

It looks like Amber never changed her awful, abusive ways … and now, according to a new report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, she might lose her job over it.

1. What a Summer

Amber’s whole entire life has been falling apart for the past few months, but it’s really pretty much 100% her own fault.

2. Truth

And that’s because she’s an abusive, nasty person.

3. Memories

We saw this when she was with Gary back in the day on Teen Mom — she punched him, grabbed at him, once she kicked him in the back while he was walking down some stairs.

4. Consequences

Domestic violence was a big part of why she went to prison — she was charged with felony domestic violence for what happened with Gary, placed on probation, had some drug charges a little later, violated probation … just a lot of bad things, but the abuse was definitely part of it.

5. Hmm …

History does seem to repeat itself, huh?

6. Oh, Matt

Her next serious relationship after Gary was with Matt Baier, who she met online after being released from prison. Their relationship was definitely toxic, but hey, at least she never physically abused him on camera, right?

Teen Mom Couples RANKED: The Best and the Very, Very Worst!

Ranking all of the Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 couples through the years is an 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.

Everyone else, however, is fair game … from the present to the distant past! Who do you think ranks number one? Do you agree?

29. Jenelle Evans and David Eason

Jenelle evans and david eason selfie
David Eason is Jenelle’s current husband and the father of her third child. She likes to gush about how perfect they are together and how much of a “REAL MAN” he is, but … not so much. David has quite the criminal history and he’s been accused of domestic violence by two of his exes, and later by Jenelle herself, who claimed in a 911 call that he pinned her to the ground so hard she thought he broke a bone. He’s also allegedly abusive to her second son, Kaiser — at the very least, he’s controlling and mean to him. Oh, and then there was the time that he killed her dog and got all the kids temporarily pulled out of the home by CPS. Throw in all of the scary gun stuff plus the FBI investigation and the way the Teen Mom 2 crew was so scared of him that they refused to film when he was around (that little tidbit was definitely a big part of why she was fired from the show), then add in the fact that Jenelle seems set on proving everyone wrong and staying with him forever … it just CAN’T end well. That’s why this ongoing nightmare is the absolute worst.

28. Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

Amber and Andrew didn’t have a great beginning to their relationship — they met on the set of Marriage Boot Camp where he was working and she was trying to salvage her relationship with Matt Baier while acting like an absolute nightmare. Still, apparently he saw something in her, and a couple of months after filming he had moved to Indiana to be with her, and shortly after, she got pregnant with their son, James. For a while, it looked like they might make it work, but things ended real quick after Amber beat him with a shoe and allegedly chased him with a machete, all while he was holding James. Since then, he’s said that she was emotionally and physically abusive for months before the arrest, and they’re still battling things out in regards to the custody of their son. Not a great love story, this one.

27. Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

Courtland and jenelle
The worst of the worst right here … for a time, anyway. Even by her standards, Jenelle and Courtland were a total and complete disaster … almost worse than any couple in franchise history. Multiple arrests, massive drug abuse, one long stint in prison and a pregnancy that ended in an abortion tell you all you need to know. Jenelle, who has kids by three other sketchy dudes, would not go there with Courtland. Enough said.

26. Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley were awful together when they were actually together. He was extremely manipulative, she physically abused him … it was bad. Things are a whole, whole lot better between them now, but we’ll never forget seeing Amber trying to kick him down the stairs.

25. Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind

Chelsea houska and adam lind pic
Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind were about as bizarre a couple as you could conjure up — basically because she seems to be a pretty great person and he’s, you know, Adam. Fortunately, she got it right the second time around (needless to say, she and her husband are much higher on this list) and the Housk has done the bulk of the parenting of their daughter Aubree. Meanwhile, Adam developed an addiction to meth and a string of domestic violence arrests, and now he’s only allowed to see Aubree at a visitation center, which he still doesn’t do. It’s probably only a matter of time before he signs over his rights for her like he did for his other child, Paislee.

24. Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer

Ryan edwards and mackenzie standifer selfie
There are so many “yikes” to be had when discussing the relationship between Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer. She was only 20 years old when she got married to him while he was high on heroin, and somehow things have only gotten worse since. He’s been arrested multiple times, he’s been spotted looking for hookups on Tinder multiple times, and he just can’t seem to kick that heroin habit. But no matter what, she’s stood by him, and they’ve even had a baby of their own with another one on the way, if you can even believe it. It’s … it’s such a bad situation.

Amber Portwood: On the Verge of Mental Breakdown Following Arrest?

Amber Portwood has had a very eventful summer, to say the least.

Like, her whole entire life is basically falling apart.

Just a couple of months ago, she was living the dream — she had a loving boyfriend who’d been showing a lot of interest in marriage and an adorable baby boy, not to mention her older daughterwho she’d been spending more time with.

But then she went back to her old, violent ways, and now she’s on the verge of losing everything.

Well, not everything, since MTV flew Dr. Drew and a film crew out to her to talk about the arrest for the upcoming Teen Mom OG reunion special.

Today, we’re going to be talking about a sneak peek of that interview … specifically about how Amber really, sincerely does not seem well in it.

1. A Bad Time for Amber

Amber portwood breaks way down
So, yeah, Amber isn’t doing so well right now.

2. Fair?

Andrew glennon and his son
It makes sense — Andrew has left her, and he’s taken their baby, sweet little James, too.

3. Well …

Amber portwood talks anxiety
It must be a devastating loss, and we might feel bad for her about it if it wasn’t all her fault to begin with.

4. The Incident

Amber portwood happy in bed
It all went down back on July 4th over some fireworks, if you can even believe it — Amber wanted Andrew to take her and James to see a fireworks display for America, and they were going, but there was roadwork and they couldn’t make it through it.

5. Um

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
So instead of just figuring out another route to bypass the roadwork or just finding another place to watch fireworks, they went home, where Amber beat Andrew with a shoe while he was holding James.

6. Keeping the Peace?

Andrew left with James and he claimed in his statement that they drove around for a few hours before returning home with dinner and a gift for Amber — but she was still angry.

Farrah Abraham Supports Amber Portwood: You’re Just as Good a Mom as I Am!

Last month, Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking Andrew Glennon while he held their son.

Now, she’s getting support from a former castmate — and quite possibly the last person you’d expect.

Farrah Abraham is cheering on Amber, telling her that she knows that she can make it as a single mom.

Farrah abraham and sophia abraham dual rc interview

“I mean, I wish her all the best,” Farrah expresses in her interview with HollywoodLife.

She continues: “It’s really sad that … I think it’s just like everyone is saying. She has to focus on her health and her well-being.”

“I know it hurts, as a mom, to have your kids taken away,” Farrah adds.

“I know it hurts to sometimes make wrong choices and get off the beaten path that she wants to be on,” she notes.

“And the more that we all talk about that, that she talks about that, that’s awesome,” Farrah raves.

“For Amber,” Farrah says. “My message would be, ‘I wish you all the best and I know how that feels, and I understand.’”

“I’m empathetic to what she’s going through,” the reality villain affirms.

“But I really really hope that she can be alone, go solo, be a solo girl,” Farrah expresses.

“And,” she continues. “Be that strong independent fierce woman that I know is inside of her.”

Farrah notes that Amber is a person who is strong “and who can easily have two kids on her own.”

Now, Farrah is the first to admit that she is out of the loop and has been since she left Teen Mom OG in a huff.

“They’ve definitely probably splitted ways after that,” Farrah muses.

“I can only imagine,” she says with sympathy.

“This is her second go round of her losing custody of a child,” Farrah notes.

“And,” she concludes. “I’m sure that’s not taken lightly.”

A little piece of advice for everyone? Firework displays just aren’t that important. They’re noisy pollution sources.

But reports say that it was over a missed firework show that Amber lost her temper and allegedly attacked Andrew.

With a shoe, she allegedly pummeled him while he held their child, and even demanded that he set down James.

She also allegedly hacked at a door with a machete — an image from everyone’s nightmares — in her fury.

We are so glad that Andrew escaped with minimal injuries and that 1-year-old James was physically unharmed.

Despite what sounds like a one-sided incident, Farrah is not the first Teen Mom star (past or present) to sympathize with Amber.

Catelynn Lowell voiced her support for Amber with a message that could only be interpreted as “believe attackers!”

She and Maci Bookout both showed up in court in to root for Team Amber.

It may be that they’re simply siding with their friend out of habit.

Others have suggested that perhaps Amber’s mental health made her actions in July fully outside of her control.

Perhaps the court and a series of expert witnesses will decide that.

This is not Amber’s first arrest for domestic violence.

Famously, years ago, she attacked baby daddy Gary Shirley. The violence was caught on camera.

Amber managed to strike a deal that would have avoided prison time, but ended up behind bars anyway.

Most had hoped that she had learned her lesson and gotten the help that she needed.

No one ever has the right to strike or otherwise attack a member of their family. Yes, even if they’re mad about fireworks.

Catelynn Lowell Shares Soul-Shatteringly Cute Snap of Baby Vaeda

After all of the pointless mom-shaming that Catelynn Lowell has endured, it’s great to see something positive.

And it doesn’t get more positive than the unspeakably adorable photo of Vaeda that Catelynn shared.

Brace yourselves: this little cutie is too precious for words. Take a look:

Catelynn Lowell is a proud mom and she’s more than happy to share a glimpse at her youngest daughter.

Taking to Instagram, Catelynn uploaded a snap of 5-month-old Vaeda seated in her little chair.

“This little munchkin just ate her breakfast,” Catelynn captioned the photo.

“And,” she remarked. “Sissy is STILL sleeping.”

Take a look at how mind-shatteringly adorable baby Vaeda is.

Look at that expresion!

There’s a point in each baby’s life where they cross that special personality milestone.

You start to see a glint of thought and personal identity in their eyes. You see the intelligence there.

Vaeda is clearly in that zone and she’s just too adorable for words.

Of course, she’s not the only adorable little girl in that household.

Nova may have been sound asleep when Vaeda had her breakfast, but that didn’t mean that she slept the day away.

Soon, she came downstairs, with messy hair and a bright pink nightgown.

Catelynn took it upon herself to offer fans and followers an update.

“Sissy finally just woke up,” Catelynn captioned this photo, followed by a red heart emoji.

“Gosh our girls are beautiful,” she added, tagging Tyler Baltierra.

She’s absolutely correct, there, and Tyler commented with a series of emojis to show that he was in 100% agreement.

Catelynn and Tyler are much more certain of their love and their relationship these days.

Last year, they were feeling much less certain about things.

Tyler moved out temporarily as part of a trial separation.

Unsure about their future, Catelynn considered not having Vaeda so as to not bring her into an already broken home.

Fortunately, she and Tyler have worked through so many issues that once seemed impossible to resolve.

Catelynn and Tyler have another child in addition to Nova and Vaeda: Carly.

But they are her birth parents. They made a difficult but courageous choice to put her up for adoption when they were 17.

Catelynn recently opened up about how difficult it can be to be “birth parents,” especially when it comes to your other children.

“That’s another hard part of being birth parents… explaining to ur children why we can’t be with the other child on birthdays etc.” Catelynn remarked.

“But,” she noted. “As our kids get older the more they will understand and the more we can explain.”

Honestly? Despite their troubles as individuals and as a couple, Catelynn and Tyler seem like one of the most solid couples in the franchise.

After all, they’ve been together since they were really just kids themselves.

They’re also devoted parents who, these days, work on addressing their own issues instead of just letting mental health problems fester.

A lot of Teen Mom kids would benefit from having parents like these two.

Especially if it meant that they could be as cute as little Vaeda.

Tyler Baltierra: Dad-Shamed for Endangering Daughter’s Life!

First, mom-shamers went after Catelynn Lowell for no longer breastfeeding baby Vaeda.

Now, it’s dad-shamers, and they’re taking aim at Tyler Baltierra.

Did he really recklessly risk the life of his four-year-old daughter, Nova?

Tyler baltierra speaks header

The backlash started because of what went down on this week’s Teen Mom OG.

As you can see in the clip that we have included in this post, Tyler was making dinner.

Not just any dinner, but tacos (gosh, just writing that makes me want tacos).

While Catelynn is looking after Vaeda, who is so so tiny, Nova is hanging out while her dad cooks the ground beef.

The issue that the parent-shamers have is with where Nova was seated.

Novalee reign on the counter

Rather than being seated on her stool or simply standing near her father, Nova is perched on the countertop.

She’s there to help Tyler with the food, which is adorable.

And we should point out that she’s keeping a safe distance from the stovetop — avoiding potential burns from splatter.

Unfortunately, four-year-olds are not always the most experienced at navigating the world. That’s fair — they’re four.

Nova moves forward and then slips, spinning around and landing on the hard kitchen floor.

Nova reign falls off the counter

Nova responds to the fall with shock and pain.

After all, she fell a considerable distance for a person her size.

She of course cries, and Tyler was right there to comfort her immediately. He picked her up and soothed her.

Soon enough, she was seated in her chair and feeling better.

But to hear Twitter parent-shamers tell it, Tyler had basically been letting his daughter play on some dilapidated rooftop.

Novalee reign is okay

Some of the responses were downright cruel, but even some “gentle” tweets at Tyler were full-on dad-shaming.

“The thing that pissed me off was how could you let nova climb on the counter,” one Twitter denizen expressed.

The tweet continued: “She falls off and start doing it again and you did nothing.”

“They didn’t show in this scene before hand,” Tyler explained. “Where I told her I was only going to let her sit on the counter for a second.”

He revealed that Nova was only to sit there “until I got her chair that she usually sits on next to me when we make dinner together.”

“She never climbed back onto it though,” Tyler clarified. “I’m am NOT a perfect parent!”

Tyler baltierra tweets against dad shamers

Even MTV chimed in, sharing the clip — the same one that we have included — on Twitter.

The Teen Mom OG Twitter account captioned the video: “@CatelynnLowell and @TylerBaltierra are over the online trolls!”

Fortunately, plenty of supporters — many of whom were parents themselves — chimed in.

People recalled their own childhoods spent on kitchen counters and how their own children do the same.

They also pointed out that kids Nova’s age fall all of the time. They’re learning how to exist in a tiny growing body. It happens.

Catelynn lowell with vaeda and nova

There are plenty of bad — even terrible parents — in this world. Millions of them, beyond counting.

A few of them are on the Teen Mom franchise, and we’re not speaking exclusively of Jenelle and David.

But Tyler letting Nova sit on the counter is normal. Letting her do it again, now that she’s learned how easily one can fall? Also normal.

It’s hard to see a child cry out in pain and shock, but Nova is okay.

Teen Mom: The Definitive, Tragically Trashy Tattoo Guide! [UPDATED]

If you’re a fan of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2, then you know that many of the people on the MTV reality shows have tattoos.

You also know that a lot of the tattoos …

… well, they aren’t that great.

Some are poorly done, some are  kind of strange, and some are nightmarish and horrifying and just so completely, unbelievably bad.

So steady yourself, perhaps grab some smelling salts and some pearls to clutch, and let’s rank all the Teen Mom ink we can get our eyes on!

1. Amber’s Tattoo of Leah

Ambers tattoo of leah
Here, let’s just start with the worst of the worst, all right? This is Amber Portwood’s portrait of her daughter, Leah. It’s right on her stomach, it also features a gigantic rose, and it’s not finished. Will she ever get it finished? It’s hard to say. We will ever be able to get this haunting image out of our heads? Unlikely.

2. Choices

Choices
Since we’re already talking about Amber’s tattoos, she also got this matching tattoo with Matt Baier, back when they first started dating. It reads “vero amore,” which is supposed to be Italian for “true love.” So that’s embarrassing.

3. Speaking of Embarrassing …

Speaking of embarrassing
Matt also has this huge tattoo of Amber’s name right on his forearm. Just right there on his arm where he has to look at it all day, every day.

4. Ugh

Matt baier book cover
Matt actually has several tattoos, many of which you can see on his nude book cover. We won’t waste more time on him here, so if you feel the need to look more closely at his naked greasy bod here, then you have our blessing. However, we will say that on his other arm, he has a couple of Chinese characters that he says mean “clean and sober,” but that Teen Mom detectives have actually determined mean “Lisa.”

5. Why Though?

Why though
As hard as it may be to believe, Matt isn’t the only guy to get Amber Portwood’s name tattooed on his body — Gary Shirley made the exact same mistake. Thankfully he was smart enough (???) to get the tattoo on his shoulder instead of on his forearm though, and he’s since covered up.

6. It’s Gary Time

Its gary time
Gary also has a … what is that, a sun? A blob with tentacles? Whatever it is, he’s also got some tattoo right in the middle of his chest, peeking out through all his body hair.
