Amber Portwood Hasn't Hit Gary Shirley in Weeks

by at . Comments

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has serious anger issues.

On the September 28 episode of the MTV show, she went off, punching, kicking and screaming at on-off fiance Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter Leah.

"A lot has changed," said Portwood, who is under investigation by the authorities in Anderson, Ind., over the incident. "I haven't hit him since that fight."

ONGOING FEUD: It never really stops for Gamber.

The reality star tries to avoid re-watching her violent outbursts, of which this wasn't the first. She attempted to choke Shirley at one point last season.

"When I see myself in that position, it really opens my eyes," Portwood says, adding that "I want to stop it, because I really don't want to be like that."

Toward achieve that goal, Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley are now in counseling to learn how to "calm down when things happen," for all their sakes.

"We are getting close to finding a solution. If I get mad, I try to think about Leah and how an [outburst] will affect her," she says of the 23-month-old.

She's optimistic she can move on. "I will teach Leah what I've done wasn't right ... I do love this man, but if we keep fighting we can't move forward."

When she was hitting Gary at the top of the stairs I kept hoping he would duck so she would miss and go bopping down the stairs on her butt!! What's the background story with HER parents?

Every time I watch this show I always feel so bad for that poor baby. She is so innocent and her mother always leaves her in the crib while she lays around the house! I think gary needs to take that baby away from her.

Amber does have issues...but everyone does. However, the way that she treats Gary, even when he's trying to be nice, is disgusting! When Gary humbles himself and shows ANY weakness, as Amber sees it, she turns around and talks to him like he's trash. I think, and I'm no expert, but she talks down to him because she's feeling much better about herself and now she feels she is too good for him. Gary WILL find someone who will appreciate him and love him the way he deserves. Hopefully he has matured and became a better person as a result of this situation.

All I can say is OMG...She has issues and needs to work them out. Those classes she was taking sure didn't help matters neither. Your a MOTHER, Leah is going to see this one day and is going to hate her mother for this. Gary isn't perfect, But Leah would be better off away from her mother until she has had some anger and parenting classes.

Not defending violence at all but Gary pushes my buttons and I'm not with him. He's slovenly, he listens to his friend and follows his advice which always fails. He does things like waking up the baby at 4:00 in the morning bcuz he has to go to work then leaves Leah in the crib to scream. He seems to always sabotage her anytime she attempts to grow and get an education (he's not available to babysit, he drives off with the carseat, etc.) Remember, Amber worked for a while to take care of her, Gary and Leah. She pays the rent in the apartment. Amber didn't start off like that and she should never put her hands on Gary ever!! Gary is useless and she needs to move on. He obviously frustrates the crap out of her and she doesn't know how to manage her anger. They are toxic!!!!

Amber is a sorry excuse for a mother. She acts like it's the end of the world to do anything for Leah. Gary is by far a better parent. Amber is lazy and who the hell goes to Walmart to meet guys when you should be taking care of your daughter? What kind of mother would just let her baby go away for 4 days then find some new loser? CPS should take all her rights away Leah would have a much better life with Gary and realize her mother is nothing but a POS.

gary should call DCF and take full custody of that poor child. it's obvious that amber has anger management problems and is physical. she has NO maturnal instincts or compassion for that child. and DON'T blame it on her age. she a angry person.
