Brandi begins by gushing that Amber is a “gangsta!” and marvels that she’s been on TV for a decade yet still stays “relatable.” Amber takes issues with the word relatable, because most people do not have a “telescope” on their deeply personal issues. Amber explains that she spends so much time filming ‘on the couch’ because, “I don’t feel comfortable going out into a public place and talking about … cause in my life some issues I feel are very personal. For other people to just be listening or eavesdropping, it makes me uncomfortable and I’ll shut myself [down]. I want to be truthful.”
Amber Portwood is finally thinking with her brain and not, uhh, her desire for a TV wedding. The Teen Mom OG star has decided to call off her wedding to many-times-over deadbeat dad Matt Baier.
I think we can all rejoice in this good decision. Although, before we get too cocky, Amber and Matt are still very much together to milk this drama for the new season, but after recent information surfaced, Amber’s not ready to make a lifelong commitment just yet.
In light of Amber Portwood‘s much-older fiance Matt Baier battling approximately 45 child support cases (OK, actually only like 9 – I think?) from several women, they’ve decided to put their wedding “on the back burner” and instead focus on the ever-pressing issue of online bullying – which they have been victims of.
Apparently the postponed wedding is social media’s fault – viewers have online bullied Amber and Matt into canceling their planned October 10th wedding. #WorldsTiniestViolin.. No worries – they plan to confront the media gossip head on with the truth.
MTV released the Teen Mom season 6 trailer yesterday.
This season on Teen Mom OG, Farrah Abrahamgets over herself continues to be her same insufferable self, with her fangs in focus on on-again, off-again boyfriend Simon Saran. <eye roll> We all know they’re just using each other – having a “boyfriend” by her side, at events and on the show, makes her appear somewhat human and being on camera outweighs dealing with Farrah and her mini-me, Sophia, for Simon.
Matt’s ex-fiance, a woman named Kelly who alleges Matt is also the father of her 8-year-old daughter (bringing his total illegitimate child count to 8), gave an exclusive interview to The Ashley, revealing Matt’s secrets and MTV’s plans to involve her story in Teen Mom OG (Note Kelly will not be appearing on the show in any capacity).
Teen Mom OGstarsAmber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, and Maci Bookout were in L.A. last weekend to film the season 5B reunion. Of course, because there’s nothing simple about the Teen Mom franchise, they brought a hodgepodge of kids, parents, significant others, ex-significant others, and ex-significant others’ significant others. #FlowChartsAvailabeUponRequest
According to The Ashley, there was no drama (We are looking at you, Farrah!) behind the scenes. “Farrah was pretty mellow behind the scenes,” a source shared. “She actually was talking to Gary Shirley [whom she has feuded with in the past] and his wife Kristina. They were getting along well. Farrah and Amber were hanging out too. They used to hate each other but at this point Amber just doesn’t care what Farrah does. She just wants to avoid drama.” However, on stage, an audience member reported that Farrah’s segment was super intense.
It’s hard to believe that Amber Portwood is only 25 because she has lived through so much: teen pregnancy and motherhood, drug addiction, prison, reality television, dysfunctional relationships – and Gary Shirley! With all of the worst portions of her life reflected back to her via reality TV and social media, Amber is focused on moving forward.
Amber took a break from reality TV to spend time in prison. Since being released 2-years-ago she has been working hard to get her life together – including losing weight. As a bonus Amber found love (ish?) resulting in a bizarre engagement to much older man, Matt Baier, whom she calls “the love of my life.” Matt was recently exposed for having 7 secret kids, which the Teen Mom OG star vehemently denies.
“He doesn’t have seven kids but he does have more than what people know because we decided to keep it private,” maintains Amber. “It’s nobody’s business.” Except you’re on the TeeVee there makin’ it our biznits.
