Amber Portwood BLOWS UP at MTV, Kristina & Gary Shirley on Twitter, Gary responds

Amber Portwood Gary Shirley Twitter feud

On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood finds out she is pregnant while on vacation in Hawaii with new boyfriend Andrew Glennon. The cast members usually get a preview copy of the episode on the same day it airs, and it seems that Amber got hers and was ABSOLUTELY P!SSED at what she saw!

Amber’s anger was directed at MTV as well as her ex Gary Shirley and his wife Kristina because of things they apparently said on camera about Amber’s pregnancy. “I’ve been on this show for 10 years,” Amber’s first angry tweet began. “I’ve been through hell! MTV has turned my pregnancy and this relationship into a joke in one of the happiest times of my life.”

Amber later focused on Gary and Kristina, and she DID NOT HOLD BACK. “Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me!” she tweeted. “It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be? Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

Amber then lashed out at Kristina:

Gary came to his own defense, and asked that Amber refrain from going after Kristina:

I stayed where I was cause I’m no better than the next person i saved up to put 20% down. I didn’t wanna move and feel like I was struggling, and I wanted to think out all options and find where I wanted my kids to grow up. You can talk poo about me, but plz not about Kristina.

Amber remained enraged:

You are a liar lol. You were broke doing pills and drinking constantly! Thank god for Kristina or Leah would have been in hell! I sent you money Gary! You begged and said you had no money to take care of her!!

In addition to Gary and MTV, Amber also called out those criticizing her online for being a bad mom. She reveals that during the time that she wasn’t seeing Leah very often, she was struggling with depression and was suicidal.

Thankfully, both Amber and Gary would eventually conclude their Twitter sessions with positive messages. Here is the full Amber Portwood Twitter meltdown — or at least all of it that remained at the time of this post:

AMBER: I’ve been on this show for 10 years. I’ve been through hell! MTV has turned my pregnancy and this relationship into a joke in one of the happiest times of my life. Apparently my life is just for people to tell me how horrible I am as a mother because I went through depression!

AMBER: Remember if your going through hell make sure you keep it all inside. And people should be able to say whatever they way about you. Especially your ex! Make sure when your suicidal that you always have your kid right next to you the whole time! It’s very healthy for them!! Idiots

AMBER: Andrew is the reason I was able to pull myself together! He showed me that life was worth living! I’m thankful to have him because now I will be ALIVE for my daughter and family!



AMBER: Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be? Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!

GARY: I stayed where I was cause I’m no better than the next person i saved up to put 20% down. I didn’t wanna move and feel like I was struggling, and I wanted to think out all options and find where I wanted my kids to grow up. You can talk poo about me, but plz not about Kristina.

AMBER: You are a liar lol. You were broke doing pills and drinking constantly! Thank god for Kristina or Leah would have been in hell! I sent you money Gary! You begged and said you had no money to take care of her!!

TWEETER: Well when your stepdaughter’s mom checks out for weeks/months at a time & you’re raising her every single day, you have all the right in the world to an opinion. If they didn’t want it on TV, maybe they should stop exploiting their private lives, Amber included.

AMBER: That never happened once! I’ve never just been gone for weeks and months ever! Wtf are you talking about? This was 2 months and I saw her right when I got out of Boot camp! Once again talking shit ignorantly with nothing to back it up!!!

[Tweet about MTV editing I could not see]

AMBER: It didn’t use to be like that. Now if there’s no drama then it will be created.

TWEETER: Gary has a job outside of teen mom. I’m sure they would be fine

AMBER: No he doesn’t?




TWEETER: Kristina has never talked sh!t about you.I think her main concern is Leah. Give her a break. She acually has”been there”Thats not a dis on you, but at least respect her. Amber youve always been better then what ppl most closest to may say about you so what makes a difference now?

AMBER: You have no f**king clue what your talking about in any way!! She broke up her family for money and tv! Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!

AMBER: I’m sick of people commenting on things just blatantly not true? It’s disgusting!

AMBER: Sometimes it takes a strong man to pick up a broken woman🤰💖

TWEETER: Sometimes a broken woman needs to pick herself up!

AMBER: Do you suffer with Bipolar Disorder or Borderline and social anxiety? Well I’ve been suffering for many years trying to be happy with pills and medication just to stay alive! Maybe you should say that to all the women who committed suicide! “You should just pick yourself up!”

TWEETER: Twitter is definitely the right place for this.

AMBER: Why not? You guys have so many opinions? We’re on TV so everyone is aloud to know every detail about our lives right? We have no rights for privacy

TWEETER: I’m understanding Amber’s side. It’s been tough. Don’t know what’s said tonight but kudos to you for defending Kristina. So far, she’s been stellar! & Amber seems like you keep choosing daddies. You deserve much better! Stay positive.

AMBER: Ive been with 2 people in the last 7 years?? One for 3 1/2 years. Where are all these “daddies”?

TWEETER: That’s not what I meant. Sorry. They just both rub me wrong for you. But I’m just a viewer. I do wish you love & happiness. Love you.

TWEETER: I’m 23, I have depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and severe anger issues. I’m a Mom. I get my shit together when it comes to raising my child. I don’t ever talk badly about her father. My Mom passed in July, even when I didn’t want to get out of bed, I did because I am a MOM

AMBER: Well you are just so damn special! I wish and pray to be strong like you one day….once again “Pick yourself up” mentality.

AMBER: I glad to have such a beautiful family! My life is full of joy and I now get to share it with my daughter and son on the way! 🤰🤗

GARY: Sorry for the wonderful drama you see or don’t see. My wife Kristina is amazing we had a rocky start and we made Thru and honestly I love her and she is one hell of an influence. Please don’t judge us by what someone else says there is always more to it. We love you all.

GARY: @AmberLPortwood I know your going Thru stuff & feel bashed. But you do ultimately have our support, yes we have concerns of our own. And we do a tv show, so ya shit gets said, on both ends. Continue being the amazing mother you have been. And keep that Baby fed in the gut.

AMBER: I’m glad to have such a beautiful family! My life is full of joy and I now get to share it with my daughter and son on the way! 🤰🤗
