‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood Under Investigation For Abuse

'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Under Investigation For Abuse

Amber Portwood, one of the stars of MTV’s reality show, Teen Mom (she was previously profiled on 16 & Pregnant) is being investigated by authorities in her home town of Anderson, Indiana after an episode which showed her being physically abusive towards her ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Fans of the show will recognize Amber’s volatile behavior and lack of patience when dealing with her young daughter, 1-year-old Leah.

Mitch Carroll, the police chief in town talked to Radar Online about the case, stating they began a file once the episode aired last Tuesday, saying ““Anytime you have photographic or video evidence it helps.” Amber is also being investigated by Child Protective Services.

Leah was present during the fight on last week’s episode. The argument started when Gary called Amber a bad mom and threatened to report her. A representative for Child Protective Services refused to comment to Radar, citing confidentiality laws.

        What is wrong with you? Amber is pretty lazy herself, does this mean it’s ok for Gary to slap her around? The “poor girl” is being judged, because anyone who has seen the show has clearly witnessed the abuse Gary recieves from Amber. Lazy or not, no one has the right to put their hands on another person in anger. As far as family goes, I’ve seen her dad and cousin on several episodes. Her mom has appeared also not to mention a trip she took to Florida to visit an aunt and uncle, so yes Amber does have family.

      Abuse is never they way. He may not have been very helpful but she was the one in the wrong. She is the bad person here. She needs to be charged and to lose her child. He was the one who was think of Leah not her. She needs lots of help!

    I def. Feel like charges should be made on amber portwood after watching her on teen mom she obviously cannot control her temper and leah does not need to be exposed around that type of negative parenting I think cps does need to step in and gary should get custody till she gets her problems taken care of. I feel sorry for gary for putting up with her and especially for leah her losing weight did nothing for her attitude and personality.

    I’m surprised that they are just now starting to do something about her temper. She has been like this since the first season. She really needs some serious counseling. And defintly when it comes to her daughter.

    She punched that man in the head. Punched!!

    If the roles were reversed, he’d be in jail.

    She should be ashamed of herself!

        Has she actually been clincally diagnosed as bipolar? Either way though, depressed and bipolar or not, there is no excuse for her behavior. She thinks she’s hot stuff and can get away with abusing her family but we all face our consequences sooner or later!

          Even if she was diagnosed as bipolar, that has nothing to do with it.
          I was diagnosed as bipolar and I’m a teen mother to TWO little girls. Ambers problem goes much deeper than that. Has anyone noticed we don’t see Ambers family? She doesnt know how to be a mother properly probably because she didnt have the best example. If she’s hitting Gary ON camera theres no telling what shes doing OFF camera. However even if a case is opened, I doubt seriously they’ll take Leah (even tho they should)….MTV’s already filming the 3rd season…

        It WOULD BE MTV’s fault if something happened to that child because they’ve been witnessing and filming her abusive behavior for a while and haven’t reported anything. I feel that they should’ve immediately reported what they had to the police and get in contact with CPS. I don’t believe in this double standard that women can just abuse men; they need to be punished, too. She is not stable, and that child is in danger. And MTV is not getting involved and just allowing this abuse to continue just for ratings.

    Amber Portwood needs to be arrested for assault. Leah’s safety and well being is at risk, and Leah needs to be taken away from Amber immediately.

    When fists fly, when vile words as she spits out are spoken, it is time to take action to protect Leah.

    Gary needs to ‘man up’ and protect his daughter and himself. However, Amber has been abusive to him verbally, emotionally, psychologically, and physically for at least three years that we either know of, or have had direct access to see and hear.

    What kind of cajones does the Anderson, IN authorities have? When it gets to the end of the day, the police and the prosecutor need to get together and protect that child.

    This isn’t about Amber’s histrionics about how she loves Leah, this is about Amber’s histrionics being a mental disorder and those same histrionics being a direct danger to Leah’s well being.

    What will she do next when she goes through her selfish attention sucking fits and meltdowns? Throw Leah out a window? Toss her down the stairs? Maybe feed her something to make her have a scary situation so Amber can start down her munchausen syndrome alley?

    She is one scary human being. She is like watching dynamite play with a match.

    I guess next year, Leah can live with Gary and he will have counseling to help me make the transition, and Amber can go live with another reality psycho, Danielle Staub, and the two of them can cat fight it out and spit their psycho drams. The new show can be called, “Cat Fight”!

        Where did you get that Gary doesn’t work? He had a full-time job during 16 and Pregnant, then the first season of Teen Mom, THEN got laid off. This season, he started a new job, remember, that is when Amber went off cussing and screaming because he woke her and Leah up getting ready for his first day! Amber worked part-time at a tanning salon, that’s all, that’s it! Get it right! Gary and Leah are VICTIMS here and it’s time the professionals take care of this, BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT EVEN WORSE THEY HAVE ALREADY!!!!!

        Gary may not be the perfect father but he is Not abusive like Amber, what you need to understand is once gary is gone amber will continue her abusive ways but only then it will be leah who gets it…amber has major anger issues that is quiet clear from this episode..THERE ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSES FOR WHAT SHE DID!!! putting blame on someone else does not make it right!

          They both are poor parents. Amber is violent but she does have a job and makes enough to have a house and financially take care of Leah. Gary is not abusive but he does not currently have a job and does seem to be trying to mooch off Amber. Also, he listens to his friend’s comments too much is as seen from all the seasons he is lazy. They are both at fault and Leah needs to be given to someone else entirely.

            You need to get your facts straight. They live in the top floor of a duplex, not a house. Gary had a job, got laid off and Psycho started work at a hair place as a receptionist. Then she wanted to focus on her GED so she quit and Gary got a job to pay for the duplex she is living in and that she just kicked him out of. He was paying for a place for his child to stay and looking for a place of his own. That’s rent for two different places. And where the hell is her family!? I’ve seen and heard about Gary’s enough, I guess they were smart enough to kick her to the curb when she saw how she was raising her child and treating Gary. Who would ever want to marry such a stupid crazy BITCH!? Yeah he is kinda fucked up too, but no where close to psycho! He is big enough to destroy her, yet he always has just remained calm, waiting for her to stop hitting him.

            I dont’ think Gary is mooching. Gary had a job always, in 16 and pregnant and in the beginning of Teen Mom but was laid off. He is like millions ofothers who lost his job. He found a new job that someone stated above he was at his day of work when Amber woke up screaming that morning about Leah and waking her. He works… She kicked him out and he has no where to go. He probably doesn’t have enough money saved because he is supporting Amber and Leah and had a period of unemployment. His mother will only allow him to stay a few days. Apparently he doesnt’ get along with her husband (?) I am not sure if that the case of another family member so she will not allow Gary to stay there more a few days. So yes he was staying with Amber and calling around trying to find houses to share rent with some friends. They showed that on Teen Mom.

            I think the only fault Ican find with Gary besides his being very overweight. this is not an issue for me other than the fact he is at health risks and also that he might feed Leah the same unhealthy way. The other issue is his low self-esteem. But he is a class abused partner. He takes all the blame for Amber’s anger. He forgives her repeatedly. He apparently thinks she is the best he can get. He is WRONG. Gary is not abusive to Leah. He seems to take very good care of her. He is always telling Amber not to let her sit in her crib and cry. And HE goes and gets her not Amber. I think Gary would be a fine father sole custody as long as he continued to get help from his family. His mother seems to help with Leah a lot.

        Are you kidding me??Would you leave your child with someone who acts like that??Who cares if she’s her mom, how many moms have been killing their kids in the news lately?!!!He could have just left to protect himself but he decided that his daughters safety was more important, I think he should have called the cops the second he got out of that house and had her arressted on the spot.

        Amber, is that you? I don’ know what you are watching, but what I am watching is a young Mother that does not deserve her child. I have been a counselor for 15 years and she has neglected that child more than once through the shows. She is not fit to be a Mother. She needs much, much growing up. At least Gary is level headed and we have never seen him lose it with Leah. He is very gentle with her while Amber is a “nutcase” and all about Amber. She needs some serious deep therapy. If that child stays with her, the cycle will start again with Leah. Child Abuse has probably already happened if she is acting like that in front of the cameras; can you imagine what she is doing behind the cameras. So if this is Amber, you need to get help before you see that beautiful baby of yours and if you are a fan, maybe you need help!

          I agree 100%. Amber’s ass is craxy as hell and lazy. The only time Leah gets positive attention is when Gary is around. Amber claims that Gary lets Leah get away with too much. She is a baby she is doing what she is supposed to do. I think that Gary is a way better father than Amber is a mother.

    Amber is obviously on drugs. There’s no way she could have lost all that weight that fast. And she gets super violent over nothing! Poor Gary is just trying to be a good father, but that drugged up bitch always has to start something. Gary should take that baby away from her, and take her ass to court.

    Gary does not need custody of Leah, he doesn’t do crap for her. Amber ask him to help all the time and he refuses to. He wouldn’t even help Amber buy anything for Leah’s first birthday party. He also wasted money on a studio video game system instead of saving it for bills and essentials for Leah. Another relative needs to get custody and she needs to go to anger management and so does he. Both of them need serious counseling and to stay away from one another. They are like fire and gasoline. They do not go together and shouldn’t be mixed.

      Did you not see when Gary ended up returning the game system because Amber went and told her dad on him. He admitted he was wrong for buying it and returned it. And who gives a shit if he didn’t buy anything for the birthday party… he clearly pays for things for his daughter. Amber is NOT the one buying Leah every single thing, and I don’t know why people think that. Has it ever occurred to anyone that they DO make $$ from being on the show…

      That was a couple years ago, and Gary has proven how much he has matured since then. He is nothing like what he was in the beginning.

      Likewise, Amber is also nothing like she used to be, although in her situation, she’s only gone downhill.

      She’s too full of herself these days, and she definitely needs help. Everyone is focusing on her punching Gary in the head, but I distinctly recall her putting her foot to his back and shoving as he was trying to carry his TV down the stairs. That’s not just assualt – that could have killed him!

    Leah is in danger and THAT should be enough for cps to take her, this was filmed a while ago, so who knows if Gary has a stable home or not for her, if not I do not think either of them should have her. But if Gary does have a stable home to raise Leah in, he needs to get full custody ASAP! I have been saying that Amber is crazy since DAY ONE! And yes MTV producers should have stepped in, but it is “reality television” whatever they can do to get more viewers, if they wouldn’t have showed her hitting Gary in the previews, they most likely wouldn’t have had so many tune it to watch that episode. Thank god they aired it, so people can see that Amber is a LOONY TOON. Bottom line, poor little Leah has been in the middle of Amber and Gary’s bullshit since day 1. Don’t have a child if you aren’t mentally stable, I am a mother and I would NEVER talk like this to my husband around my son. Little Leah is like a sponge at her age too. I called CPS on her ass and I am in TEXAS. I hate her.

    I’m glad Amber is under investigation. I saw the After Show and all I saw was Amber feeling sorry for herself. There was no understanding of how this violent abusive behavior affects her daughter (I didn’t get that feeling from Gary either). I have reservations about Gary getting Leah too; he’s not violent but just as immature. Plus, he was a grown assed man when he slept with a 15 year old Amber. That doesn’t sit well with me at all. Ultimately, though, if there’s no one else Gary or his mom are the best choice for Leah. At least until Amber faces charges, get help for whatever her anger issues are and take parenting classes (and cleans her home!!!!!!).

    It’s amazing how mature and responsible Catelyn and Tyler are on that show. They gave their daughter up for adoption b/c they knew she would have a better life. I think Amber should have done the same. She obviously has no clue how to raise a child. My heart breaks for that litle girl having to witness her mother’s foul mouth and worse temper. I can’t believe MTV has allowed her to continue her bad behaviour. But all they’re interested in is ratings. Amber is a mean-spirited, bad -tempered mess. I agree with the other comments, if Gary had hit Amber, his ass would be in jail right now. The cops and CPS need to step in now and remover that child and throw Amber’s sorry ass in jail. She is a disgrace. She also needs to be removed from the show.

      Tyler and Catelynn are the two most annoying people I’ve ever seen. He is a jerk and she’s a drama queen. They need to stop whining, it was their choice to give up their daughter, if they really didn’t want to then they shouldn’t have. I’m so sick of hearing about it. They need to break up and stay away from each other like all the couples do. None of them are good together. They all fight and can’t stand each other. Grow up.

    I’ve read where when showed the segment about her hitting Gary, she just went on about how she does what she does because he causes it. Ugh! And the very day of the airing just before the show came on, that Amber & Gary were seen laughing & smiling at an outing in Seveirville, Tenn. so evidently they had reconciled before that episode even aired. Doesn’t make it right for Lea. Maybe Gary’s mom would make a better choice in raising Lea, she is the only one I’ve seen who keeps reminding them how they need to do right by Leah, & she does keep a civil toungue. I think the lady may have her hardships but it doesn’t seem like she takes them out on everyone around her. And she clearly loves that baby.

She is so annoying and it looks like she is the one that sits around more then Gary! She’s never working or cleaning and neither is Gary. Leah needs a stable home.

    im a teen mother myself and have been in a domestic violence relationship and i know how hard it is to walk away but its what is best for the child. Amber is not fit to be a mother because how could you hurt Gary in front of your daughter? I am so happy she is being investigated by the police and cps I really do hope they take Leah out of that situation and give her to her father Gary because he is a great father. Amber really needs some help and MTV seriously needs to step in and stop this girl from putting her hands on Gary because that little girl could get hurt in one of Amber’s little fits, MTV seriously needs to pull this girl off the air.

    Amber needs to be arrested. If a male did this to female, he would have already been picked up, arrested and charged. She slapped him several times, kicked him in the back and punched him in the side of his head with a CLOSED FIST. She has serious anger management issues. The daughter Leah is in danger. If she loses her temper and physically abuses a 300+ lb man, imagine what she can do to that innocent little girl. That baby needs to be in Gary’s custody. The poor guy has little to no self esteem, BUT…he appears to be a relatively good guy who loves his daughter and her well being.

    Indiana police – go arrest that psychotic woman before she harms that little girl or smacks Gary with a cast iron frying pan!

    When Amber had nowhere to go and was living in a motel, gary let her come back and live with him. But when the tables are turned, she throws a major tantrum that eventually leads to punching him in the face. It’s disgusting to watch. The things she gets mad about are usually little and she should really learn to count to ten and take a deep breath before she opens her mouth. She is so whiney and thinks EVERYONE is out to get her or “bash her as a mom”. I’m glad they are investigating this. If she does this now, what would she do if Leah eventually brings home a bad report card? Or forgets to do her chores? And she wonders why Leah cries all the time. It’s because she’s always around yelling and screaming! That poor child.

    When i saw Amber on Teen Mom last Tuesday i was disgusted in her behavior. Gary may sometimes be lazy and not helpful at times but what amber did was inexcusable. I was so hurt when i saw her throwing things at him and kicking him in the back when he was going down the stairs. She should be appalled. She needs some serious help if something as little as Gary taking Leah away from her horrible behavior is going to upset her THIS much. and she’s always complaining about Leah’s crying, whining, and screaming. Amber, its because of you, you abuse her father, cuss in front of him, and you’re screaming 3/4s of the time i watch you on Teen Mom. I hope you read everyone’s comments and take into mind of the message you are putting out there. Teenagers who are watching this better not take after your horrible behavior and attitude. I’m glad they are investigating you and this situation. I seriously hope you learn something from this whole experience and get some help. Gary- Do NOT let Amber see Leah until she seriously gets her act together. This is not a good example for her. I am so sorry to poor baby Leah. She deserves none of this. Neither do you Gary.

    Let me first start off by saying, thank you to whom ever it was that turned her in. MTV is not responsible. They are recording a documentary and are not supposed to intervene. Whatever Amber did was going to go on no matter if the cameras were there or not, so we should all just be thankful that the cameras were there. Im pretty sure that she tried to contain herself a little since she knew she would be on national TV. And if that is what happens when the cameras are there, then I dont even want to think about what happens when they arent. Leah cries when Gary leaves but waves goodbye to Amber when she leaves? There is something wrong and that definitely needs to be addressed. I think that Gary is being the best dad he can be for Leah at this time and with the “relationship” he has with Amber. He tries to defuse the situation and keep Leah out of it but that seems to make Amber worse. Oh and putting blue kool-aid in the crib with Leah is not the smartest thing when you want her to sleep or when there are no sheets on the bed. If you are mature enough to have sex then you should also be mature/responsible enough to care for the child that may follow. Period!

    They both are poor parents. Amber is violent but she does have a job and makes enough to have a house and financially take care of Leah. Gary is not abusive but he does not currently have a job and does seem to be trying to mooch off Amber. Also, he listens to his friend’s comments too much is as seen from all the seasons he is lazy. They are both at fault and Leah needs to be given to someone else entirely.

    Some of the bloggers are so ignorant. This topic is about domestic violence. It is not about whether or not Gary is lazy or whether or not he has a job. The fact of the matter is, he was physically and verbally abused, many times in front of their daughter. I don’t care if he lived under a bridge, it does not mean he is not deserving, therefore he earned, a slap, a kick and a punch.
    Secondly, some of you all need to be less judgemental and a little bit more tolerant. You should not expect Gary to have the maturity of a 50year old male, because he has not lived that long. He needs to grow into manhood. One of the most mature thing I seen Gary do is remove their daughter Leah from a toxic environment. As for Amber, from what I have seen, she is emotionally and mentally unstable. CPS should definitely get involve. Amber is out of control. Their daughter is in imminent danger, if not physicaly, emotionally. CPS need to do whatever it takes to ensure that Leah has a bright and healthy future.

    Well I remember on teen mom season one when they had the reunion dr. Drew brought up a situation about Gary and ambers fighting, and she sat there and laughed when MTV rolled the footage. She then apologized to Gary because he had a difficult past and amber hit him. She obviously did it for show cause here we are watching season two and she’s worse then before. That baby needs to betaken away before it’s her being abused lime that! She shouldn’t have to be put into that environment.

    Amber is going to teach Leah this behavior and it is sick no one deserves to be treated as Amber treats Gary, no matter why Amber says she does, She really needs to go to a shrink and take some medicine and maybe that will calm her down, but she does deserve to have Leah taken from her, if she was a man the baby and the spouse would have been taken out along time ago, like 16& pregnant

    Gary has supported Amber and Leah he left his apartment so she could stay there. He bought this lazy bitch a car. Amber can’t even get a GED thats how damn dumb her ass is. She thinks that she can do better than Gary but really he can do better than her. Leah is in danger becasue Amber is really crazy, better the cops step in now than later when she has flicked off and hurt the child. Shit Gary is a good man becasue she after slapping this man kicked him in the back I would have beat the hell out that bitch!! Real Talk.

    I really hope that Leah gets taken from her and not allowed around her, till she passes drug test, pill counts, has counsleing and anger management classes. She is a bully and an abuser, she should be up on assult and domestic voilcene charges. If she does this to Gary what is she going to do to poor little Leah once she can climb out of her crib and open doors (my 2.5 year old does both these things) and she just can’t control her temper.

    And she is depressed and bipolar, so freaking what? I’m bioplar but I don’t beat the crap out of my husband lay in bed all day while my baby cries and leave the house a freaking wreak.

    You can tell Leah is in distress from the way she cries and screams a lot. She seems to want to be with her Daddy…she gets very upset when he leaves. It’s such a shame. Amber will probably get pregnant again and continue in another bad relationship while she brings another stressed out child into the world.

    Am I the only one here who thinks that if I had an asshole of a “fiancé” like Gary, i’d be one crazy bitch too? I mean I agree its not right to do it in front of Leah, but Gary is clearly an unintelligent, easily impressionable asshole. Have you not seen the episode where his friend tells him to run her birthday and he does? What kind of guy is that? It’s just as much Gary’s fault as it is Ambers. He knows shes mentally ill, and is having issues paying bills and being a young mother, and he still decides to listen to his idiot friend all the time and stress her out. People need to look at the whole equation before pointing fingers at Amber for being a psycho, horrible mother.

The baby herself shows how she is treated she wants her dad all the time. Her mom thinks she deserves a break all the time. Hello ur a mom honey. And when she threw her daughter in the bed with no sheets when gary brought the new sheets and she didn’t feel like it.

    This is for Shawn Portwood.. I get it, you’re her brother and are supposed to stick up for her, but I think your true loyalty now should benwith your beautiful innocent niece. She is the victim of your sister’s violent ways. You need to stop defending your abusive sister, get some help for her and do what’s best for Leah. And Amber if you are reading any of this… You need to get some serious help, get your psycotic ass under control, pay attention to you daughter (instead of verbally abusing her), keep your hands off Gary, and stop worrying about everyone “bashing you as a mom”… Because as of now, newsflash Amber YOU ARE A BAD MOM.

    What nags me about Amber is that most of the time when she is cursing or hitting Gary, the baby is right there watching. I am lead to think that this is sort of situation that will eventually lead to Leah becoming a bully and eventually unleashing her wrath on other kids, just like her mom is teaching her. I think its DISGRACEFUL, the way she treats Gary!!!!

    I definitely think that Amber needs to be charged with assault. Repeatedly, she is angry and violent and shows lack of any kind of control of her emotions. I get that she is young, but the words coming out of her mouth are very grown. It is unhealthy, and unfair, for that little girl to witness all of this, and for her (the baby) to be subject to the Mother calling her Dad names. Yes, it is a baby, but what we adults fail to remember is that children, whether or not they can articulate it, understand a whole lot more than we realize. Amber needs to think about what she is teaching her daughter – that acting out, being evil and angry, and not growing up is OK. It is very sad to watch this. I do hope that either Gary gets custody, or the child is put in a better place than she is.

    I also think that Farrah should not have a child. The way she talks to her parents, mainly her Mother, is so sad. She, too, has very incredible anger issues, and the fact that she is playing the victim is sickening. When will these girls grow up. they are a sad example for teenagers all around, and even others with kids at an early age. I do hope no one fashions their lives like this.

    I do hope that Farrah gets help and realizes that as grown as she thinks she is, she does need her Mom. And one day she’ll realize how ugly she has acted throughout this show.

    Praying for Amber and Farrah – and especially their daughters. Let’s hope they don’t grow up to be like their Moms …

Gary needs to man up and leave your ass get a job and take custody of that baby. Your no smarter than him. You just think you are. Maybe you need to watch the show to see how you act. It is sickening. You kick him out EVERY week. Grow up child or let him raise your child. It is not good for your child to be around you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think Gary should be brought up on charges too. There are more forms of abuse than just physical abuse, and Gary is guilty of emotional abuse & verbal abuse. He’s older than Amber & He’s SUPPOSED to be a MAN. He should have had a job this whole time knowing he had brought a child into this world. He said all he wants to do is be a stay at home father while Amber works to pay for a house for their daughter, more than I can say for him. He doesn’t have a home nor a job. What judge would ever give a child to a guy who does nothing but lay around all day. All CPS will do is look in her home she has shelter, clothes & food. Gary’s moms house is the one that’s nasty , because his fat lazy a$$ takes after his mommy. . . He’s a mommy’s boy always running to her playing the victim. I would have knocked the crap out of him too if I had to deal with his abuse for years.
    It’s abuse to threaten someone with CPS just because you’re upset because she kicked you out for not cleaning, cooking, helping out with the child. At least she’s trying to be normal and work, lose weight & raise Leah while he’s to busy hanging out with his friends and family talking about how bad she is when really he’s a poor excuse for a man.

    OH YEAH and if Gary tries to take Leah use what you got girl.

    & what he couldn’t afford a condom?
    PLZ he knew she was 14 – 15 years old when he decides to have sex with her & get her pregnant.
    Why? Maybe because no one in his town would have sex with him so he had to have sex with a child.
    What A piece of crap.
    Would any of you in here like your 15 year old daughter to get pregnant by a grown man? & on top of it he’s abusive his damn self.

    Doublestandard is either Amber herself or someone close to her. But I am gonna go with, that it is in fact Amber because the writing sounds just as stupid as the words amber speaks on the show. I’d hate to break it to you hunny, but threatening to call CPS, IS NOT abuse, nor is it a crime. What?in you warped mind to do really think it is some kind of terrorist threat? Get it together little girl, CPS is there to help and that’s what Gary wanted, was help for him and Leah because you (not calling cps) are the threat.

    You, Amber, are a poor excuse for a human being and an even more piss poor mother. Leah would be better off being raised by a pack of rabid wolves than have to remain in your care. You make me sick. You completely suck at life. I really hope you get yourself together, not because I give a shit if you life is better, but because if you don’t I’m sure I’m going to end up flipping through the channels and end up seeing you on Nancy Grace for hurting baby Leah or worse.

    I haven’t read all the comments, but I seem to remember that MTV when violence took place on the real world or any of their other shows the people were forced to take angery management classes, and would show the footage to others in the house and would even make them leave the show if they saw it unfitting to air, but yet they continued to shoot Amber and Gary’s story and did not step in and require anything. Should CPS and the cops find that abuse is taking place and they need to take action, well MTV should have to asnwer as well as to why when they saw that the rage from Amber was one minute happy and the next screaming right in front of her daughter and then hitting the father and kicking at him as he walked down the stairs… well then MTV should have to answer for why they did not step in to make sure the child would be safe in the situation. MTV has come a long way from making sure violence was not accepted to watching it happen with a child present to get a good show

    Where is the fat ass, feminist, man hating BITCH Oprah? Oh wait, i forgot she only finds in unacceptable and abuse when the MAN hits the FEMALE. But it’s all good the other way around.

    If Gary was doing LESS, let alone as much, as what Amber has done to him, Oprah would be calling Amber to be on her show to tell her “victim, sad” story. But Gary being abused, and Oprah is no where to be seen.

    Oprah and the rest of American women are abusive, sexist bitches.

    Most girls have a slapping or kicking story. This is due to them being brainwashed in this feminist society telling them they have a right to slap or kick a man for reasons such as cheating, offending them, touching them etc. Yet a man physically assaulting a woman for the same reasons would not be acceptable to women.

    Women are the most sexist, abusive people in America. Furthermore, girls actually are amused at slapping and kicking guys. These girls are very sick and brainwashed by the media into thinking its funny.

    Women have murdered their cheating husbands, assaulted their penis with a knife, glue, boiling water etc and have gotten nothing more than probation. Yet all a man has to do is slap a woman and he faces 10 years in jail.

    Actually the man doesn’t even need to be guilty of anything. Women falsely accuse men of rape, abuse and the like and even with no proof the man is convicted. Women are VERY dangerous creatures who can very easily ruin a mans life and he doesn’t even need to be guilty of anything.

    More and more men are looking outside the US where women haven’t been brainwashed by the feminists like fatass ***** Oprah because these men know the dangers of being with said women in the US.

    Ultimately feminism WILL hurt women too because no man is gonna wanna touch an american woman with a ten foot pole fearing she will acuse him of abuse and knowing everyone will believe HER and if she abuses him everyone will say HE had it coming.

    You hear it all the time… women say they slapped a man because he had it coming, “deserved’ it for cheating etc etc. Very sick.

    I agree, my cousin just got into an arguement with his infant daughter mother because he looked at a movie where an actess was in her underwear. She got jealous, started an arguement and ende it with punching him multiple times in the face. She cut and blacked his eye and split his lip… I called the police for him, the police acted like he was the victim and said she would be arrested for domestic assualt, one hour layer she showed up at his house screaming and yelling. They did nothing to her. Did not arrrest her! It was an outrage! Even though she had no marks and he was bloody and bruised plus HER Friends gave statments to the police saying that she attacked him an he did nothing, she got in no trouble because she lied and claimed it was self defense. If he would have even grabbe her arms to stop her from hitting him, he would be in prison, no questions asked… It’s bullshit and sexist. I am a woman and find this VERY WRONG!!

    Obviously most of you have not been watching Amber since the beginning. When she was on 16 and Pregnant she was already abusing Gary. This is absolutely not the first time she has put her hands on him. She not only hits him on a regular basis but she does it in front of Leah every time. And as for the fat and lazy comments, have you seen Amber do anything other than lay around and complain about having to take care of Leah? He has been the one that has had a job for most of their relationship, Amber worked for a few months part time at a tanning salon and complained about it. She doesn’t clean her apartment, wash her childs clothing, or even pay attention to her daughter. Just a couple of episodes before the season finale Amber sat and watched Leah pick up a steak knife and instead of doing something about it she yelled at Gary when he walked in the front door to take care of it. In my opinion Amber should have Leah taken away from her because the kind of Mom that would bring a criminal that she has known for 3 weeks not only into her daughters life but into her home obviously doesn’t have a clue about life or how to raise a child. She is a joke!

    ok now… Where is MTV’s liability for this horrible irresponsible display of madness? How could MTV air this past episode of teen mom? I am a mother of three teens who have all had various issues to deal with. We watch Teen Mom together when it is on tv, and really talk about the issues that come up during each episode. It has actuall become a method of therapy in a way.
    I know this is a “reality” show, but cant believe that MTV would let these past episodes that contain such abuse and violence air. What message is this program sending to our children? It is horrible for a young child to have to be a parent under the best circumstances. Let’s face it, it almost always turns out unfavorible for young parents, and their children. No education, no future! Poverty, struggles, anxiety, and stress not to mention lonliness.
    Amber’s rages of bi-polar manic depression are obvious even to non-professionals. As for Gary, he suffers from depression brought on from anxiety. They both need major therapy and Amber needs to have her meds changed or increased and in the meantime, that poor baby should not be allowed to live with her. Doesn’t MTV see that that they are dealing with minors, and there is certianly a liability issue that they will have to deal with at sometime down the road?
    Is all of this madness an act? Aside from the abuse, I can’t believe a new character, Amber’s boyfriend was not investigated before he appeared on the show. He was obviously high when he was on the show, and he admitted that he has spent quite a long amount of tme in jail. I have heard that he is a sex offender. Let him around that poor baby? Beware!! Nothing good will come of this. MTVwatch out, and I hope you take responsibility before it is too late.

Doing that shit in front of a kid is not good… i know! I had my bf beat me up in front of my 3 year old and the whole time my daughter was crying and screaming…. she knew what was going on…. and now a year later, if me and my new bf (now fiance) start playing around, maybe a lil too rough, she starts to freak out….so yeah she remembers what the sperm donor did too me. and there is nothing i can do to change that. I just hope that Leah is young enough to never have to remember this. I hope that Gary gets Leah. Say what you want about Gary being fat and lazy. He does more for that baby than Amber ever has and ever will. Amber seems like she is the lazy one…. she never wants to get out of bed. bitches and yells at leah, leaves knifes on the floor, knowing Leah could cut herself. Abuses the hell out of Gary, cares more about her hair and makeup than buying laundry soap so the baby can have clean clothes. Moving in that dude was WAY wrong…. I would never let a guy that i have known for only a few weeks to change my babies diapers, regardless if the baby was a girl or a boy! And why in the hell would she even go on another date with the dude even after he told her straight up he was on work release?!?! That right there, I would have walked out the damn door!!! I hope to hear more about the case against Amber. I am sure like everyone else, I am very curious to hear exactly what is going to happen.

    It is apparent Amber & Gary both had no positive roll models in their childhood because if they did neither would be in the situation they’re in today. Amber literally has no control on that temper of hers. She lashes out at both Gary and leah for no reason at all. She needs more then just anger management classes and medication. Infact she is currently on medication so she knows all to well what she is saying and doing. What she needs is a reality check. She is young and thinks she is untouchable. Leah needs to be removed from her care until such time as her irrashionable behavior is controlled. I’m talking a long term range plan with visitations. Gary is a sweetheart. Amber just abused him every episode. He wore his love for her on his sleeves and she just beat him down. Proposing to her wasn’t enough. Gary needs to have more back bone and stop asking advise from his dumb ass friends. He loves her I got that, but he needs to love her enought to walk away at let her heal herself. I do respect him because he never once put his hands on her and he removed Leah from the situation. Good man. There is a long road ahead for all envolved and I hope a prey they are touched by an angel

    Blah blah blah…. before those of you who want to say Amber is a victim in this whole drama. Lets just remember, she chose to air her dirty laundry to the world. I don’t feel the least bit of sadness for this person. People struggle everyday. There are plenty of teen moms out there, I am sure not all choose to handle their problems the way Amber does. A good mom would never make the choice to be violent with someone infront of their child, let alone be violent period, regardless of how fat, lazy, and pathetic her fiance may be. She chose him. Also, I have yet to see her working, she’s just as lazy as him, he just chooses to not bitch 24/7. In the end, this show is pathetic. It’s glorifying teen pregnancy, it’s saying it’s okay.

    First of all, who are you to calling someone fat and lazy. If she has a problem with anxiety then she need to get help for that. To me Gary does a alot that little girl, and all amber does is scream at her and put to bed… I know its not easy being a mom, cuz I have a baby myself. But the way she keep that place and how she have that baby’s room is just NASTY. And then she have her new man cleaning her house for her while she lay there and do nothing… Yeah! and your talking about anxiety… Please give me a break

    You have no clue…I am a mom who works full time, does all the cooking, cleaning, shopping in my house. I have never once left a knife sitting at child level and then blamed my husband for not cleaning up after me when he pointed it out as a danger. She talks about how lazy Gary is…she does not do anything but lay around and make food for herself so she can lose weight and then leave the plate wherever-with knives on it! Seriously, she is sooo neglectful of her child. I don’t care what bipolar issue she has…it might explain her anger but she does not take care of her child properly. Most normal people try to act better on TV, if this is her best, imagine how she acts off the camera. This bad mom also meets someone at Walmart and then invites that person to live with her a week later and thinks that is normal good MOM behavior. She is a dummy. Gary asked her not to have him change Leah’s diaper and the idiot does not even understand why because she is so lazy, it is easier to have a guy she has known for two weeks do it instead of protect her daughter from potential harm from a stranger who could be a child molestor whether he has a proven record or not. And you are defending her lazy ass. She does nothing. Can’t get her GED and I only say this because she has whinned about it for two years…..has only had a part time job for a couple of months, maybe, then quit. Talks about how she pays the bills and bought everything…with the money from MTV? Is Gary not on this show, too? Is it not money they are both making for exploiting Leah and themselves? She makes me sick. It was bad enough, their relationship but then she brought in that loser around her daughter and I just feel so sorry for Leah. She would be better off with Gary. Just for the simple fact that Amber is going to have man after man in their lives and unfortunately, you cannot trust them around your beautiful daughter. And she is too selfish and stupid to even care about anyone but herself! Hopefully Leah makes it through her childhood without any serious injuries from parental neglect.

    Wow I’m a mom and i went throught depression, and anxiety that how ever didn’t make belittle my husband and hit him.. Amber is just not ready to be a mom and is taking her frustation out on Gary and he allowes it.. Shes luck he hasn’t slapped her since she is the type to get in your face and won’t stop.. No excuses people.. anxiety comes with the job of being a mom you dodn’t see other getting physical with their partner… Gary is good with leah & Amber should be greatful that he provieds for her daugther..

    There is never any good excuse for abuse like that, especially with a child around. I’m not judging her, and I don’t know what her past has been like or what kind of mental health issues she has; but I do know how hard it is to be a teen mom raising a child – and with the hours my husband works sometimes i feel like a single mom. And yes it’s stressful, especially with a new baby added to the mix, but I would never dream of acting that way. It’s our jobs as parents , no matter how young or inexperienced, to show our children the right way to act ; ESPECIALLY in stressful situations. I just pray to God that she gets the help she needs, so the can be the best mom she can be to the beautiful little girl! And as for Gary, he may be lazy but at least he has some common sense! I applaud him for standing up and telling Amber how wrong it is for that creepy guy to be living there , and I’m so happy he threw a fit on Amber for letting that guy change Leah’s diapers! I mean, really?? Thank God somebody stepped in!!

    Wow, so being fat and lazy means it’s ok to be physically abused by someone…you must get slapped around a lot then huh? I must be watching a different show, because I missed the part where she’s trying her best to be a great mom.

    Sweetheart your not fine…sounds like you have issues. You can’t seem to get your point across without cussing, so I’m guessing if you have children of your own I’m betting you cuss in front of them so should yours be taken away?

    Im myself a 17 year old mom, and this show is showing the struggles of being a teen mom. She suffers from anxiety and you HAVE no idea what it is like to take care of a child, thats why youre probably saying these things.. i know being violent in front of her child is wrong but i mean what the heck! give her A BREAK.

    NO–do not give her a BREAK. You are talking about a childs future. I don’t care if ;you are young or old–you don’t act like that in front of children. What is this child learning???? Gee–I wonder how Leah will handle situations with that kind of parenting from her mom. If she cannot handle it then there are families that can.

    WOW…I have 2 kids and I don’t have any issues taking care of them. It is a joy to be a mother. And yes sometimes it can be challenging but not to the point of having anxiety. I was 18 when I had my first child and I was fine. The anxiety comes from the fact that your so young and immature you still need YOUR mommy to care for YOU. Main point…if your old enough to spread your legs like that then you need to grow up and deal with it.

    people always complain abou how hard it is being a mom and till this day i do not see it. i am 19 with twins, so the excuses need to end. amber has help from gary with leah she gets lots of break so you might want to rethink if you are saying she needs a break.. i spend 99% of my time with my twins, if i am not in schoool they are with me, they live with me and so far i do not see what is hard. if ppl are blaming her child for her ways then really your hell of sad. i do not have no sympathy for teen moms, if yo ass old enough to sleep around then be old enough to handle your responsibilities alone. most of these young moms now a days get help and its a shame the teen mom parents do not let them handle there responsibilities..
