    AMBER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR AMBER!!!!!!!Not Gary he didn't make Amber hit him. Ladies we can't have it both ways. I watched all 4 seasons of Teen Mom and on 99% of them Amber either looked or was HIGH!!!! So Gary can't be the blame for her down fall. Unless he had a gun up to her head a was saying the following things.
    1. DO DRUGS
    2. NEGLECT OUR CHILD
    3. HIT ME? I LIKE IT?
    4-100. DO DRUGS DO DRUGS
    I DIDN' T SEE THAT ON ANY ESPISODES.
    And for those women saying it is all Gary faught think about this. IF HE HAD HIT AMBER BACK AFTER HITTING HIM OVER AND OVER? WOULD IT HAVE BEEN AMBER'S FAUGHT?

    Maybe just maybe she did the unselfish thing and went to prison bc she realized she was a danger to her daughter and herself. Maybe she realized that she's doing right by her daughter and taking responsibility for her actions and recognizing she's not strong enough to do it by herself. Maybe just maybe, she recognizes that she's better off in a jail cell then o.d.ed on her living room floor. Has anyone been raised by drug/alcohol addicted parents? most children that are pray their parent would go to jail and get straight bc its better than the alternative. Good job Amber!

    Honestly idk why these teen moms make it seem like it's so tough to be a mother at an early age. When you become a mother you get the strength to be the best person you can be for your child! No you do not need a man just so you can have a family that is simply an excuse! If you care more about having a guy than having a stable home with just you and your child then you have some serious issues and you need to sit down take a second to get your priorities straight.

    Honestly she should've have stayed in rehab because when Leah is older she might be one those responsible women hiding the fact that her own Mother hurt her and wasn't there for childhood (the worst part to miss in a kids life). Its gonna suck for Leah in the future, the poor girl. But... I kinda understand Amber a lot of people stress her out! And they have to be careful about what they say around her so she doesn't get pissed. I mean Amber shouldn't be taking all the blame, but she should take the majority of it. Deep inside I'm sure she loves Leah more than anything, she just needs to time to start being a better Mother because no matter what people she IS LEAH'S MOTHER and not even the court can biologically take that away from her.

    She is a terrible mother!! She always dumps off her daughter, and when she does have her, you can tell she's high cause she won't even get off the damn couch! No, she clearly NEVER wanted to be a mother. And Gary tries to love her, but is equally as worthless. And whoever said "so what if she cusses at gary.", did you not know she actually hit him? Thats called assault. And no, khadeja or whatever your name is, I will NEVER be in her position. Cause when I had a baby at 16, I grew the eff up and became a mom!! I don't smoke or drink or do drugs, cause I have a 3 year old to think about!!

    I am still a supporter for Amber. Yes Gay was a problem for Her . He did say and do stuff on the low to Her that pissed me off and then act like he an ángel. He did make it hard for he to see leah . Amber got to get strong. Just dont try to have a relationship with Gary anymore.

    For Kadee.....j or whatever none of us would be in that losers shoes. Are you friends with her? I mean I enjoy the show because I love watching train wrecks unravel and self implode on tv. That's why we all watch it and she is the worst kind of person; selfish and STUPID! I don't mean like "man, you are stupid!" I mean can't get a GED hasn't yet grasped 5th grade English. The saddest reality is that Gary is a waste of space too but a far superior option for Leah than bet fat dumb worthless ass! Fact! Hooray reality TV and the trash it produces!

    Shame on Dr. Drew and MTV for glamorizing Amber's stint, thus far, in rehab while she is clearly high..... No, I'm sorry... she's not high, she's taking her "medication" responsibly while under the supervision of a licensed physician! Does anyone out there think that it is "normal" to close your eyes and bob your head while talking to someone (all the time), or are we supposed to accept that she is medicated and that this is normal behavior of anyone taking medicine?! Is her doctor prescribing xanax and alcohol?! Anything for ratings.... You go MTV/Dr. Drew! Also, why is it hard for people to grasp that maybe, just maybe, Amber does not want to be a mom anymore! Maybe, she never wanted to be a mom but she got caught up in the "glamour" of it all with being on TV and then reality hit the "reality star" and now the "real Amber" is rearing her ugly self! Hmmmm? Gives one something to think about!
