    No MTV should not be held accountable for her actions, because she is a grown women she knew what she was doing and frankly i feel she was just acting out of control in many of the incidents where she was abusing him, and i commend him for not retaliating...If it were the other way around and he was abusing her then they would not think twice to charge him...

    Seriously? It doesn't matter what anyone said to her or offered to pay her. She's mature enough to know right from wrong - and knows that she's being filmed. In short - she committed a crime - on film. It really doesn't take a high school education to know that such a scene won't end well for anyone...

    well that is nit right i would blame mtv as well there letting amber put her hands on gary he does not deserve to be treated like that any woman or man put there hands on a victim of domestic violence needs to be Locked up in jail and amber should had pleaded guilty ! She knows she did it so she needs to go to court and let the judge give her a sentence she is a bad influence on her daughter she not doing what she needs to do help herself or daughter.

    It d0es matter if MTV provoked this with amber and gary. 0n the 2 seasons b4 this 0ne u d0nt c amber beating 0n gary then. Why n0t? Domestic violence never leaves a person. I do believe ths girl is very troubled. But MTV had a resp0nsibility to her. Shes a 20 yr.old with a baby to raise. Is it that 0ff the wall 2 believe she thought it was for show and n0t real? H0w do we kn0w? Hell 0n jerry springer they pay u $100 per fght. And tell u to charge the 0ther pers0n when the bell rings! All HOLLYWOOD thnks about is M0NEY AND DRAMA! IE*RATINGS PPL.......i say charge MTV with bein an ACCESSORY to her crimes! THEY SAT BY AND PR0V0KED THAT VIOLENCE.THEY C0ULD 0F ST0PPED IT! THEY WANTED RATINGS.PUBLICITY. AND U ALL ARE FALLING FOR THEIR CRAP! I SAY B0YC0TT MTV. THEIR SENDING THE WR0NG MSG TO 0UR Y0UTH

    You know it doesn't matter staged or not she had a choice to either hit Gary or not and she chose to so now she has to deal with the consequences and I don't think Leah is safe with her. She needs to get her act together go to anger management, AA meetings and drug rehab before they even think about giving her full custody of that child. Leah is worth more than that and I don't believe for one second anything is going to get better within a year seeing how many problems Amber does have. Gary needs to just go away from Amber while she is getting help and doing what she has to do in order for them to finally be civil again.

    It doesn't even matter if MTV encouraged her. Ok, it matters (as in, how fucked up can you be to pay for violence just for ratings?) but she is still reponsible for her own actions. Assuming even if MTV said "We'll give you a bonus if..." thats not a loaded gun at her head. All she had to do was not punch him. How stupid. Your actions are your actions. MTV egging it on is a seperate offence to be judged.

    I believe male or female, you need to be held accountable for your actions. But, if you've seen the show, it seems to me that Amber is always trying to justify things she does. She seems to blame alot on her losing her father. As hard as it is to lose a parent, there is never a reason to do the things she does. Just my opinion. Only know what I see on tv and in the funny papers.

    BTW, I am little concerned about Gary in this photo. I see a lot stress in his face and body movements. These type of reactions could lead to high blood pressure or it could affect his health in other negative ways. I think he needs to relax more when he's around Amber even when she gets a little agitated. If he acts "calm", Amber will mirror that response wiht her own calmness.

    It's funny how people jump all over Amber's case for this domestic spat with Gary, but when violent men like Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen attack women, people are less eager to ask for these men to be held accoutable for their actions like Amber. In Amber's case people want blood. Is this double standard because Amber is a female or is it because Amber is considered a low-income D-Lister and Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen are A-list rich male celebs.
