Throughout the episode it is also revealed that the electricity had been shut off in the house and candles were lit to give off light in the home.

Tyler Baltierra reminded fans that his father Butch is a drug addict and that he has “mastered the art of manipulation.” The Teen Mom OG dad went on to reveal that the electric bill was being transferred from Butch’s name into Amber’s name and that is the reason the power was off, stating that there was no electricity for only four hours during during time. Tyler added that Amber’s children are “fed” and “taken care of.”
So for everyone commenting on my sister’s situation. 1) Remember my father is a drug addict who has mastered the art of manipulation. 2) The bill was getting transferred from my dads name into hers & the power was out for literally 4 hours. 3) Her kids are fed & taken care of FYI— Tyler Baltierra (@TylerBaltierra) February 14, 2018
Amber Baltierra also spoke out about the fans’ comments on social media, saying that she’s “not ashamed to admit” that she is on food stamps. She also reveals that her appearance on the show was filmed after a very long day at work where she groomed and bathed upwards of 20 dogs. Amber went on to reveal that the scenes were filmed about a week before Thanksgiving and that her father soon went to rehab to deal with his drug addiction. In a video, Tyler’s sister also debunked any rumors that she was using drugs, namely meth.
“Just because I clean up well doesn’t mean I woke up like that!” Amber says in the video. “So, for everybody that thinks I’m on crystal meth, I feel so bad for you. I really do. I really feel bad for you that you’re that, um, naive to the fact of MTV and their editing.”
