Teen Mom Amber Portwood is ‘ashamed’ after domestic abuse arrest- but insists ‘there is only so much someone can handle’ – The Sun

TEEN Mom OG star Amber Portwood is “ashamed” over her domestic violence arrest against baby daddy Andrew Glennon.

In a sneak peek clip for the season premiere, Amber, 29, opened up about her July 5, 2019 arrest, where she was accused of attacking her now-ex-boyfriend with a machete.

She said in the TMOG clip: “It’s been one of the hardest times of my life! But I’m proud of how I handled it.”

She continued that she is grateful to have the support of Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter Leah, 11, and his wife, Kristina.

Amber continued that her “number one regret” is that she “did not walk out of that house.”

She said: “I look back and I am so ashamed. Amber, you should’ve walked out of that house.”

But she insisted: “There are limits to somebody with mental health disorders. There is only so much somebody like me can handle. People like me will understand that.”

Amber suffers from bipolar and borderline personality disorders.

When Gary said she has learned from her mistakes, she responded: “I just have a lot of guilt of not being aware of myself more than I should have.

“I really do feel ashamed that I didn’t have that. I should after all the things I have done to change.”

Producers then called Andrew to see if he would like to share his side.

He told producer Larry over the phone: “It gives me anxiety to be honest with you. It’s hard to go to sleep. It’s a total mess. It’s completely spiraled and out of control. It’s frustrating.”

Amber was accused of hitting Andrew with a shoe while he held their son during a fight over Fourth of July plans.

Andrew texted police after she allegedly hit a locked door with a machete while him and James were inside the room.

She accepted a plea deal and is on probation for three years.

After the arrest, Andrew filed for emergency full and legal custody of their son, James, 1.

As part of their court agreement, Andrew has primary custody of James, while they share joint legal custody.

Amber has three unsupervised visits a week with their son.


Amber told Us Weekly that she got into a “really dark period” months following the arrest.

She said: “I lost about 35 pounds in less than three months. My hair was falling out. When I say I went into shock. I literally, my body went in shock.

“I didn’t sleep for almost two weeks. I had to get out of that state of mind.”

Teen Mom OG airs Tuesday, March 17 at 8pm.
