It’s obvious that Amber Portwood is going through some stuff right now. Though she’s tried to put on a brave face to seem like she’s totally in control of her life, her bizarre late-night Instagram Live rants are telling a different story. She’s making controversial statements that enrage her fans, saying that she stays up all night, explaining how Matt really needs help, and changing her topics of conversation constantly (as if she’s having trouble maintaining focus on anything for very long). Amber may be making an appearance on Marriage Boot Camp with Matt soon enough, but she looks like she needs help now.
A Real Woman
Amber got in big trouble with her fans for insinuating in a previous video that a “real woman” keeps her mouth shut about domestic violence. She wanted to clarify that statement but didn’t really apologize for making it.
Redditor ThunderThighmaster quoted her saying, “The comments I made about domestic violence the other night wasn’t about other women. It was about what I was doing and how I got in trouble for keeping my mouth shut.”
ThunderThighmaster continued, “She said she would love to be a domestic abuse advocate but it would be hypocritical since she was on the other side of it.”
While she seemed to go back and forth about her experience with domestic violence, she seemed to focus on the fact that she was the one being hit. Although her abuse towards boyfriend Gary was well documented.
Reddit user mileysbutthole said, “She’s hinting that Matt has abused her, saying she’s been on the receiving end of domestic violence. Also just addressed that she is not trying to copy Marilyn Monroe lol.”
User mileysbutthole continued, saying, “She said Matt needs to work on himself right now. Made it sound like he needs help, but she didn’t specify for what. She also repeatedly stated that she isn’t on drugs. Then she said that Vivid approached her 7 or 8 years ago, so she isn’t copying Farrah. Apparently she said no to vivid back then because she didn’t want to embarrass her family.”
