Amber Portwood has come a long way from the lost teenage girl she once was. There have been many uphill obstacles for her, including drug addiction. When she was in prison, Teen Mom OG was off the air and it returned shortly after she was released. Fans watched as her journey was documented by cameras every single day. The good, bad, and the ugly were laid out for the world to see. Portwood has made some questionable choices in her life but she has remained strong and is in a really good place right now.
Back in October, Amber Portwood and Matt Baier flew to Los Angeles to tape the Teen Mom OG reunion. Things didn’t go exactly as planned and a huge brawl was started. Apparently, Farrah Abraham had upset Portwood prior to the taping and she was ready to confront her. When Abraham told Dr. Drew Pinsky that Baier looked like a pedophile, it was on. Since then, things have been tense between the ladies. Part 1 of the reunion aired Monday night and in response to it, Abraham posted a crude meme to Instagram that was a clear jab at Portwood.
Things have escalated between Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham a lot in the last 48 hours. According to Us Weekly, Amber Portwood responded to the Miss Piggy slam by complimenting the puppet and shading Abraham. She mentioned a man in New York and a show that wasn’t picked up. Teen Mom OG fans have a lot of questions about what those words mean, especially since Abraham has been linked to Simon Saran for years.
Part 2 of the Teen Mom OG reunion will air next Monday and the fireworks between Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham will be wild. Back when the reunion brawl happened, it was speculated that it wouldn’t be shared on the show. The previews this week confirmed it will be aired, and there is a lot that happened. Portwood stood up for herself and her friends. Abraham has proved she isn’t very nice on several occasions, including how she treats the production staff. All of this was set off when Portwood found out her co-star reportedly did an interview where she made comments about Leah being better off with Gary. That was the beginning of the end of their friendship.
If you hear Amber Portwood tell it, she was a good friend to Farrah Abraham. Both she and Matt Baier stood by her when the other cast members wanted to jump ship. Portwood talked to Abraham on the phone right after she decided to call off their October wedding. While they may not have been the best of friends, they were in contact more than anyone really knew. The idea of where they are now from the place they were at even mid-season is mind-blowing. Unfortunately, it looks like Portwood won’t be able to move past the hurtful things Abraham has said even if she were to apologize.
As this season of Teen Mom OG wraps, Amber Portwood is going out swinging. It has been several weeks since the reunion was taped and yet the feud between her and Farrah Abraham is still blazing. There have been rumors that there could be a Teen Mom OG spin-off in the works with Abraham since she no longer wants to film alongside Portwood and the other girls. As Monday draws closer, it will be interesting to see how the girls act on social media. Amber Portwood has remained pretty tactful with the shade she has thrown at Farrah Abraham after their brawl but with the stunts being pulled now, it is unclear how long that will last.
