Amber Portwood slammed Gary’s wife many times during the reunion of ‘Teen Mom OG’ She claimed Gary’s wife, Kristina was getting between her daughter and herself.
Amber Portwood slammed Kristina, calling her ‘absolutely horrible’ during the reunion of Teen Mom OG. Part one of the reunion aired on April 20. Amber said she was sure Kristina was creating conflicts between Leah, her daughter, and Amber. Leah is Gary and Amber’s daughter. Amber said some mean things about Gary as well before she ranted against Kristina. Amber was seen walking off the set later.
We see Amber discussing her relationship with her daughter, Leah with the hosts of the reunion, Nessa Diab and Dr. Drew Pinsky. The hosts and Amber filmed the episode separately in separate states because of the pandemic. She claimed that Gary and Kristina were making it difficult for her to talk to her daughter and that she had “been trying to get a hold” of her 12-year-old kid.
Amber said, “I literally felt that he was trying to be genuinely nice at first and it turned into touch here and a touch there and it was feeling a bit off. He even said to me 100 percent don’t tell Kristina that I’m doing this.” Gary denied this and said “nothing inappropriate” took place. Gary added, “I have a wonderful wife that I absolutely love. If I wanted somebody else other than my wife it wouldn’t be Amber.”
Dr. Drew sided along with Gary and brushed Amber off by saying she was “trying to start a sh-t storm” which Amber responded by calling it “bulls–t.”
A clip was shown which showed Gary telling their daughter to spend more time with her mother which softened Amber. This clip was from the Teen Mom OG episode of March 30 where Leah was not too excited to spend time with Amber. Gary had said he did want Leah to be “missing out” and Amber was genuinely touched by his support.
This clip also showed Kristina called herself a ‘bonus mom’. Amber however did not change her attitude towards Kristina as she said, “I’m going to stop this right now because — I’m going to end this on a positive note. Thank you, Gary, so much for that, I really enjoyed seeing that, that was amazing to actually hear you sticking up for me, but, your wife is absolutely horrible.”
Gary attempted to stop Amber from saying these things but Amber was not in the mood to listen. Amber said they both had “known each other for 15 years now,” and she added, “You are a great person, you have always been there for me when I have asked you to be there for me, you said I could trust you and I did trust you, but I can’t trust your wife. And she has sat there and sat there and got in the way of me and my daughter over and over again as you have tried to push me towards my daughter.”
Gary responded by saying, “She’s not getting in the way of your daughter.”
