Is she back on drugs?
Over the years, Teen Mom has documented many different faces of drug addiction, relapses, and recoveries. Even some of the strongest cast members have a history of addiction, and many of them are outspoken about the difficulties that come along with the debilitating disease. Unfortunately, as many cast members work to stay clean, it’s not rare for them to struggle with relapses.
Of all of the cast members, Amber Portwood’s struggle with addiction may have had one of the most lasting implications: landing her in prison. Amber spent years behind bars for her drug use and domestic violence several years ago, and has since been outspoken about her harrowing experience. Fans support her in her sobriety, but now one voice is accusing her of having had a relapse.
Even though Amber Portwood’s prison days are behind her, it’s impossible deny she still has issues to work through. Last year (2017), decided to head into Marriage Boot Camp with her then-boyfriend Matt Baier and her mother, Tonya. Even though the goal was to work out their difficulties and problems, we all know how that ended: with Amber split from Matt, and pregnant by one of the MBC crew members, Andrew Glennon! In the meantime, it wasn’t only the show hosts who dug deep; it was the other reality stars in the house as well.
Amber’s behavior can be a bit erratic at times, but one of her co-stars seemed to think there were drugs involved. Even though it may have just been Amber’s temper flaring up, one of her co-stars thought that she was back on drugs in this sneak peek of the show.
Do I look high?!
In this short clip, it seems Amber has to take what she dishes out. She accuses one of her co-stars of “Not listening because she’s on drugs!” In the next moment, Chrissy Lampkin of Love and Hip-Hop fame slams Amber, saying, “You’re still high from two shows ago!”
Amber has developed a thick skin over her time on Teen Mom, but she rarely takes accusations of a relapse lightly. It’s no wonder that she got to her feet immediately, shouting, “Do I look f**king high?!”
You have a problem!
Accusations of relapse aren’t the only thing that Amber went through this season. In addition to working through personal issues with her mother, her relationship with Matt came to a breaking point. In the next moment, Amber shouts at him, “I tried to give you a family!” Matt snaps back immediately with, “I don’t want that family.”
In a following moment, host Dr. Venus says what may be on many fans’ minds: “You gotta recognize you got a problem!”
