On Monday night’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood’s ex and father of her 8 year old daughter, Leah, discussed Amber’s new relationship with baby daddy, Andrew Glennon. Gary Shirley and his wife Kristina had some not so kind things to say about Amber and her new relationship.
Prior to the episode airing on Monday night, Amber went on Twitter and went off on Gary and Kristina in a very public way. She wrote, ” Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking s— 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!”
Yikes, don’t hold back your real feelings Amber! So what did Gary and Kristina actually say about Amber’s relationship? Well he flat out questioned her parenting abilities with their daughter Leah.
He said, “She should have taken more time with Leah, and focused on her responsibility as a mother.” He continued with, “I know you’re sad from breaking up with somebody, I get it, “From day one, I’ve been a parent, from day one I’ve never let my issues stop me from being a dad,” I don’t have the option to not be a parent.”
These feels like a legitimate response from Gary and quite honestly makes sense given Amber’s past history.
Gary saw Amber’s tweet before the episode and fired back. Gary tweeted, “I stayed where I was cause I’m no better than the next person i saved up to put 20% down. 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.”
Amber then continued with another tweet (not directed towards Gary specifically) but more towards MTV and the world in general. She said, “I’ve been on this show for 10 years. I’ve been through hell! MTV has turned my pregnancy and this relationship into a joke in one of the happiest times of my life,“Apparently my life is just for people to tell me how horrible I am as a mother because I went through depression!”
Amber finished her Twitter rant with one last post telling the Twitter world that she is taking some time away from social media to focus on herself and her baby. For Amber’s sake, we hope this works out for her and that she keeps herself and her baby healthy. Stay tuned for more Teen Mom OG drama on Monday Nights at 9/8c on MTV.
