Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham blames Gary Shirley for Amber Portwood’s prison stint

Gary Shirley - Leah v Farrah Abraham

Although Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley seem to be putting their past behind them for the sake of daughter Leah, fellow Teen Mom Farrah Abraham isn’t interested in patching things up with Gary.

“Gary antagonized Amber while she was also dealing with stress and handling her bipolar disorder,” Farrah told Radar Online this weekend of Gary, whom she publicly feuded with during the Teen Mom finale in August 2012.

At the time of their first fight, Farrah tweeted Gary should “go get mental help for Amber’s sake” and that he was a “POS.” Gary initially responded to Farrah’s tweets, but later apologized for fueling the fire.

“I get mad just as much as the next person. I regret a lot of things I’ve done to Amber and things I’ve said sometimes I feel backed into a corner and only weapon I have is my voice. It’s wrong. I’ve always apologized but sometimes it’s not enough. I care for amber and I wish I could have been a better example to all of you who watch and follow me,” Gary said in 2012. “Sorry Farrah. But you need to be nice to people sorry for my tweets not who I am.”

It’s more than a year later, but Farrah doesn’t seem to have accepted Gary’s apology.

“I’m happy Amber is out if jail, she never deserved to be in jail,” Farrah said. “I hope Amber can now stay away from the pressures of the media and focus on her new, healthier beginning at life. I hope Leah can have a loving mother and daughter relationship.”

  • Sick of her

    OMG Farrah…STFU! No one cares about your fake, narcissistic, over inflated ego, poor excuse for a mother opinion! Go away!

  • jamie

    I guess we were overdue for an “insightful” thought from Farrah. Can’t this girl go back to her culinary stuff and stfu from now on?

  • who knows

    That was probably the only time I ever agreed with Farrah. Am I missing something though? In that part that was quoted from Radar she doesn’t seem to bring up Gare Bear..

    • who knows

      Ah nevermind I see! Its too early I feel like an idiot lol. So um yeah Farrah needs to drop it already, even though I still agree, & let them move on. How is it that Kailyn has not met Amber? They were on the same season & I clearly remember them being on reunions together.

      • who knows

        Nevermind lol I need to go home & rest

        • Sam

          You’re cracking me up. Happy Monday

    I actually partly agree! Gary was HORRIBLE to Amber! Don’t get me wrong, Amber had/has a lot of problems, and is at fault for her actions, but he was constantly testing her, and knew what buttons to push to get a reaction out of her. Honestly though, it made me sick how he constantly threatened to take Leah from her. Amber going to jail was a good decision at the end of the day because she needed to get her life together AWAY from Gary. It would have never worked had they stayed together. My husband is bipolar, and when he gets in his “moods”, I let him know I’m here if he needs me, and then I give him some time to get his thoughts together. It can be extremely frustrating, but doesn’t help either of us if I get angry, or try to make him feel how I want him to.

    Those who live in glass houses should keep their freshly shaved down noses out of other people’s business.

  • xo

    Of course Farrah can’t comprehend how people are responsible for their own actions. smh

  • Jenn

    Farrah doesn’t care about Amber, she’ll just use any opportunity to keep herself in the “news.”

  • teehee

    Good job Farrah on saying something that makes sense for the first time this year! Only took about 11 months.

  • Lisa Tate

    She needs to take care of HER own house before she criticizes someone else.

  • Pat Brown

    I don’t know what her motives were in saying that, but I agree. I think damaged Gary was at the root of many of Amber’s problems. She was impregnated by him, when she was a minor and he an adult, he was a jealous immature lazy slob, and still appears to be one. Looking for the next MTV check not working and setting a horrible example for his poor little daughter. I feel so sad for her, that she’s being raised by that glutinous hog, he has no self control and doesn’t think long term as far as his health, and thusly Leah’s well being, selfish azzwhole!

  • TwinsMommy

    You can’t blame other people for your problems. No matter what you think of Gary or his actions it was Amber who is responsible for how she reacted towards him. Gary didn’t force Amber to take drugs or not to comply with her probation stipulations and I am sure he certainly didn’t force her to go choose going to jail instead of cleaning herself up in the outside world where she could still manage to have regular contact with her daughter. Did Gary & Amber have a toxic relationship? Probably. But Farrah sweetie, we all learn in kindergarten to keep our hands to ourselves!

  • Sara

    Mind your own goddamn business, horse-face!

    While I do think that Farrah has a lot of nerve and is just using any excuse to stay relevant, I actually agree with what she’s saying. There is a reason why Amber is at her best when she’s not around Gary. Yes, Amber had anger issues, but Gary reveled in antagonizing her; he actually admitted to Dr. Drew that he liked pushing her buttons. Many of the things that he’s said to her and the threats that he made were things that he knew would set Amber off, or cut her deeply, and he’s done/said a lot of things to spite her. He wasn’t a fan of her continuing her education, and he didn’t like the idea of her being independent from him. On top of that, he used innocent Leah as leverage to provoke Amber, saying he was going to take her away and keep her forever, etc. Furthermore, (and this is what really gets me), no one, including her family, seems to bring up the fact that Amber was 14 or 15 when he started messing with her, when he was around 20. He could have been put away for statutory rape. While I am glad that Amber got the help that she needed, I still don’t believe that she deserved to go to jail, while Gary got off scot-free.

    I believe Farrah should stick to her own problems before commenting on others. While Gary is antagonistic and sometimes a douch-e it was Amber who put her hands on another person. She was not in danger, being threatened or man-handled for her to put her hands on him. If she knew that she is unhappy when he is around why be near him? Why string him along while dating another guy? They are both toxic and should stay away from each other. They can both parent without being on top of each other. There are phones and computers for a reason and they should use those to their advantage.

    Farrah knows nothing about having a loving mother and daughter relationship. She’s never with Sophia.
