Teen Mom's Amber Speaks!

We can't believe we're saying this, but we think that she may be getting herself on the right track.

Teen Mom's Amber Portwood recently opened up about her legal troubles relating to her conflicts with baby daddy Gary Shirley, and it sounds like she's genuinely apologetic for her actions and ready to grow up!

She explains:

“I might get attention, but it’s not the right attention. I turned 20 and I don’t want to be known as ‘Amber from Teen Mom.’ I just kept thinking to myself these girls are in here for years, months. The lesson I learned in 24 hours in jail is basically what they’ve learned in their time there.”

That's what we like to hear, bb.

Keep up that attitude! We want to see you become a good mom to little Leah!

Thoughts?? Do U think Amber is sincere??

    what a pompous bitch to say something like that. almost as if shes better than them. since she decided to put out a statement (she should have kept her big mouth shut because actions speak louder than words) it should have been focused solely on her. what a nightmare. & her babydaddy gary is absolutely gross! yuck! they belong together.

    Lock the cow back up. It's where she belongs. The best thing that could happen to her kid is to be put up for adoption.

    I think that Amber has a long road ahead of her. The changes that she needs to make (and seems to want to make) are going to have to be one her priorities as she will need to be deliberate with each choice that she makes. The changes that she needs to make shouldn't be just for Leah or for Gary but for her as well. Amber needs to make these changes because she wants to be a better person - and by being a better person she will be a better mother.

    On a side note - I think that in taking care of herself and Leah she needs to put all other relationships on the back burner - including her relationship with Gary in a boyfriend context. Obviously as parents they need to have somewhat of a relationship, however I think that Amber needs to finish healing herself before she can be with anyone else including Gary.

    I wish Amber all the best and hope that she is able to turn things around for herself. It breaks my heart that so many of these young celebrities and reality show peeps have reached their breaking point and are out of control - it makes one wonder how the media effects the way their lives turn out and if the media wasn't as prevalent if their situation would be the way that it is.

    Totally sincere. We're all victims of our crazy upbringings. I hope she can heal from hers quickly so that she can provide a better childhood for Leah than the one she had.

    I hate this girl! I was watching her on tv last night telling Gary that she needs to "Slap her hand" to discipline Leah. It made me so angry. She deserves to go to jail and neither of them are fit parents.

    Why does this silly cun*t feel the need to "speak"? Nothing but ignorant white trash. Fucking cow.

    First off, abuse is not acceptable at all. If you watch Teen Mom, you see that Amber and Gary's families both have a history of emotional abuse. You all see as well that Amber is on medication for undisclosed reasons, but severe reasons. Amber also is in therapy. Physical abuse is not acceptable, but neither is emotional! If you watch, Gary is never there for her. He mocks her for having a hard time on the "GED" that he does not want to be with someone who is dumb. He does not let her leave the house and go anywhere as well as monitors everything in her life. Yet he hangs out with his friends who mock her and cause constant problems. The time she hit him was after she ended the relationship because she felt threatened and did not feel the relationship was healthy. He came to the house…that she pays for…starting taking the sheets, a tv, and a computer from her house. He then said he would take Leah and call child protective services. Thats when she felt threatened and hit him. How much emotional abuse did it take for her to finally break. I feel she is doing therapy, is keeping on her meds, and trying to get on the right track. She is young, look at the path Gary is on. Try and gift her credit and stop bashing her.

    She's not the only one to blame. I've seen her ex do things on the show, such as corner her and dry hump her in public that would piss me off. I don't think hitting is okay, but I definitely think her boyfriend instigates and feeds off her temper. She needs to stay the hell away from him.
