The court has also prohibited Amber from having any contact with daughter Leah or Shirley, under whom the two-year old will be supervised until further steps are taken in Portwood's case.

THG will continue to monitor this case as information develops. You can actually watch Amber smack Gary in this video.

@ danielle phillips. I know what issues Amber may have. I had my 1st child at 17 and my 2nd at 19. I was lucky enough to have a baby father I'm still with going on 21. You're saying Gary deserved it. It still doesn't make it right. That's like saying if a woman makes a man upset or get on his nerve enough,that she deserve it and its ok for a him to hit her. So what if he's bigger or stronger she has no business putting her hands on him just like he shouldn't put his hands on her. I think Gary was mature about that because any other man would have been hit her back. She wouldve been the one getting smacked around. If it were the other way around that man would have been arrested and charged. I don't think she needs jail though. She needs help with her issues. No matter what baby Leah is going to need both of them.

The last time I heard if u hit someone more than 3 times it is considered assault, which means jail time. She's lucky Gary doesn't live by the philosophy of "You hit a man, you take the place of a man."

@danielle: Everyone has a pity story, amber chose to air hers for millions to watch and she got money for it. But let me call the wah-wah-wahmbulance for her! Hm so you're basically saying what she did to gary was justified because he was a dick? Well whoop di do! so are most of the guys in the world, Do girls get tired of how they act? Yes. Do we get to the point of wanting to hurt them? Yes. Is it okay to beat the shit out of them? NO! And where are these statistics of 98% of its gonna be bad like theirs? I know pleanty of teen moms who work their ass off to make sure their kid is safe and provided for WITHOUT a guy. Amber chose to make adult decisions now she has to face adult consequences. P.s there are 2 sides to every story and if you do know amber personally she is playing the victim just as gary would, they both suck.

Stfu danielle you sound like an idiot. And why would she pled not guilty if there's evidence? What a moron! Yes its hard being a teen mom that's COMMON SENSE but I don't feel sorry for teen moms they know what happens when they open their legs. She has severe anger issues and gary is a pussy for still wanting to go back with her and not get her in trouble! I feel sorry for leah, they should remove her from both of them they're horrible parents!

1. Some people need to learn english if they're going to be commenting. You look stupid and ignorant. 2. Danielle, if that's what you think then you probably shouldn't be commenting on this post because obviously you can't mind your own business. 3. Amber and Gary chose to be on tv, thus put her daughter and their lives in public view. If they didn't want that for their daughter our themselves maybe that should have made a more educated decision.

USMC, shame on you. Stop calling her a name and grow the hell up. MIND YOUR OWN FUCKEN BUSINESS AND TREAT PEOPLE NICE USMC. AMBER IS A GREAT PERSON IF YOU GET TO KNOW HER BETTER LIKE I DID. I DON'T LIVE WHERE SHE IS AT BUT I HAD CONSTANT EMAILS FROM HER AND TELLING ME EVERYTHING. YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF BY CALLING HER NAMES. GIVE HER A BREAK AND GROW THE HELL UP USMC. IF AMBER IS ON HERE AND REPLY BACK TO YA, SHE WILL GIVE YOU A PIECE OF HER MIND AND I WILL BE ON AMBER'S SIDE. LIKE OTHER TEEN MOMS, TEEN MOM'S LIFES IS HARD FOR THEM. GIVE ALL TEEN MOM'S A BREAK BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL YOUNG AND THEY HAVE A TON OF THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BEING A GOOD PARENT. GARY WAS BEING A FRICKEN IDIOT. GARY HAD CAUSED ALL OF THIS SO STOP BLAMING AMBER.

It is hard enough to be a child in a single family household. When the family is constantly on display because of a MTV show,it is about as abnormal as it gets. When the mother is taken out of the house (for domestic violence against the father) exactly where does it leaves this 2 year old child who depend on the very people who are now going to be in front of the judges at Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts because the mother is out of control, and the father is not in the position to be a father. Where does all this televised drama leave this innocent little girl who needs a responsible family to care for her??
