Teen Mom: Amber Walks Off Reunion, Gets Mad At Ex Gary!
Amber Portwood was a part of Teen Mom OG’s reunion episode. Along with her, the showrunners also invited her ex Gary Shirley for the same. Together the former couple has a daughter named Leah. She is Amber’s firstborn and eldest child. Although Shirley has full custody of the child, Amber has been making many efforts to be a part of her life. But, alas, Leah is aware of her mother’s terrible conduct in the past and tends to avoid her most times. So, when the couple began talking about their daughter at the reunion episode with Dr. Drew, things didn’t land well.
Gary came clean in front of the television about revealing Leah’s secret. Before that, he assured that he had his daughter’s permission to do so. Turns out, his child has been under therapy and dealing with all the trauma caused by her parent’s divorce. This angered Amber. According to her, she found it wrong that her ex hid this news from her. That’s because Leah is a child, so her “mother should know about such things.”
However, it wasn’t the right thing for her to do in front of such a huge audience. When the reality star couldn’t see eye to eye with Gary’s argument, she walked off the sets. The mother-of-2 also accused her former lover of “using her for money”. She believes that’s why he unveiled this sensitive news on national television.
Teen Mom: Amber & Leah’s Relationship Has Gone Downhill Through The Years
After this incident, Teen Mom viewers on Reddit shunned the leading cast member. They claimed that Gary and Leah made the right decision not to let Amber know because of how horribly she reacted. Moreover, Shirley was praised for respecting their daughter’s boundaries no matter how young she was. Redditors claim that Portwood found a way to make this incident about herself yet again. Therefore, this baffled them. Leah was merely 3-years-old when her parents separated. Furthermore, Gary got 100% custody of her. This was after the MTV Celebrity was under arrest for disturbing things like drug possession and domestic battery.
As a result, Leah has always been skeptical of her biological mother. Through many Teen Mom seasons, the latter has tried to mend her relationship with her daughter. Unfortunately, it has not gone well as the child finds it hard to trust her mother. There have been instances where the 13-year-old has even questioned the TV star’s tears about being real or fake. During all this, the young mother has blamed her ex for badmouthing her in front of Leah. All the Teen Mom fans believe she fails to understand that her daughter is mature enough to separate the good from the bad. Hence, the young girl can have her unbiased judgments.
