What's the truth?!
Most Teen Mom fans get their news about the cast members from more than just the show. Often times, following different news outlets or even keeping up with the cast on social media is enough to give a good preview of what’s going to happen in the next season. However, for those who only follow the episodes themselves, seeing Amber Portwood’s timeline on Teen Mom OG might be a little confusing.
Up until nearly the end of the last season of OG, Amber Portwood was engaged to the notorious Matt Baier. Although she vocalized her doubts about their relationship, they continued to plan a wedding, and it seemed they’d be walking down the aisle soon. Imagine viewers’ surprise when only a season later, she’s in a relationship with someone completely new, and is expecting his child!
Even for Amber’s biggest fans, this was bound to raise some questions, some of which aren’t very pretty. The timeline of Amber’s pregnancy has now been called into question, especially since she has yet to share her due date. However, as time goes on and fans get more curious, one question seems to be in the back of many people’s minds: could Amber have been dating Andrew while she was still technically with Matt?
One of the primary reasons that Amber finally broke things off with Matt Baier was his cheating, so you’d think there would be no question about Amber’s fidelity. However, it’s hard to resist questioning what really went on between Amber, Matt, and Andrew, considering just how tight the timeline actually is.
There’s one more element that makes things even more suspicious for many fans: the way that Amber and Andrew met.
Like many of the Teen Mom cast members, Amber headed off to WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp to try and work things out with her then-boyfriend, Matt. It was during that time that she met her future baby daddy and current beau, Andrew! It may seem like the plot of a soap opera, but no — it’s just Teen Mom!
Amber and Matt ended up breaking up for good during filming, and Matt jetted off to Las Vegas where he eventually got married to a Las Vegas waitress… and Amber got pregnant with one of the crew members!
It’s no wonder that fans are so confused about what really went down, and some were so suspicious that they even took it directly to the source. Unsurprisingly, Amber didn’t seem to be too happy about the questions.
Twitter user @miqkawahara223 wrote, “But Marriage Boot Camp stopped filming June 1 which is when you started dating. So youve been dating 6.5 months now??? Hawaii was September and u said it had been 3 months.”
Another user, @Lanese919 agreed “So are we going to ignore the fact that she just broke up with Matt and now with Father Time and moved him in and…. now pregnant.”
“I broke up with Matt May 14 lol,” Amber finally tweeted. “He just didn’t move out until after boot camp. Honestly you guys comment on sh*t and dont even understand how tv works. Everything your watching is almost 6 months behind real life. Keep watching?.”
Amber continued to combat fans. When one fan told Amber she should quit if she doesn’t like the comments, user @Lanese919 chimed in with a scathing comment:
“No she can’t quit reality tv !! Then she won’t be able to sleep all day and find men. Leah said mommy is always sleeping or in the bed.. I guess with a new baby she might have to be active. Oh wait isn’t there a ‘plus size boutique’ online something she owns ?”
Of course, Amber shot back:
“You are gross honey. Don’t talk about me like some amateur sweety I’ve been doing this for 10 years and have saved more lives then any of you s**t talkers. That’s all that matters. My baby was commenting on me being depressed. Go be gross and ugly somewhere else. My life is great.”
