The moment that you find out you’re pregnant tends to be a time of excitement and joy for mothers-to-be. For Amber Portwood, it came with shock and worry at first, but she soon embraced her new role as a mother of two, and has been preparing for her new baby ever since. However, not everyone
has positive things to say about Amber and her second baby. That’s why her pregnancy news airing on the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, “Oh Baby,” started a domino effect of controversies that are following the star.
Now, one of her co-stars, Farrah Abraham, is making a big accusation against her. Farrah says that her Teen Mom OG got pregnant on purpose just to raise the show’s ratings. Now it seems that Amber is feuding with practically everyone on the show, and it looks like it’s about to get ugly.
Amber Portwood’s pregnancy has been public knowledge for a while now, but Teen Mom has only just caught up with the announcement. They just aired the moment that Amber took a pregnancy test, and (while many fans believe it was staged because Amber already knew before filming) it had the potential to be a very sweet moment. Of course, that didn’t last very long.
In another scene in the episode, Gary and his wife Kristina discuss their opinion about Amber’s new relationship very frankly. “She should have waited,” Gary says. “She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility of being a mother before jumping into a relationship.”
He went on to add, “From day one, I’ve been a parent. My issues never came and stopped me from being a dad. I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you could go off and do what you want to do. There is one person that’s not okay with, and that’s Leah.”
Gary reveals that Amber only saw Leah two times over the summer due to her depression in the wake of her breakup from Matt Baier. This is something that Amber herself has spoken out about, but Gary gave Leah’s perspective on it.
“Mommy don’t come around because she’s too depressed, but then all of a sudden she brings over Andrew,” Leah apparently said to her father. “If she was too depressed to see me, why wasn’t she too depressed to find a new man?”
This scene caused Amber to go off on a huge tirade against Gary and Kristina on Twitter. “Andrew is the reason I was able to pull myself together!” she tweeted in her new boyfriend’s defense. “He showed me that life was worth living! I’m thankful to have him because now I will be ALIVE for my daughter and family!”
She blasted Gary and Kristina specifically, writing:
“Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina [on Teen Mom OG] talking sh*t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be? Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”
“I stayed where I was cause I’m no better than the next person i saved up to put 20% down,” Gary replied. “I didn’t wanna move and feel like I was struggling, and I wanted to think out all options and find where I wanted my kids to grow up. You can talk poo about me, but plz not about Kristina.”
Now, according to her co-star Farrah Abraham, Amber’s not giving the entire story. She claims that Amber decided to get pregnant on purpose in order to make bank off of another baby.
“AMBER just f**king admit you planned your pregnancy lmao this is so pathetic,” she said in response to her co-star’s Twitter rant. “F**K TEEN MOM! Enjoy the bonus for your new kid and pay your owed child support!”
Farrah also gave a shout out to Gary on Twitter. “Claps to [Gary]… I was depressed. I was a single parent. You said it straight Gary! Worst mom award Amber.”
Farrah’s insinuations confirm a theory from fans and MTV stars alike that the cast members are given a “baby bonus” each time they get pregnant during the show’s run.
