Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley: NOT Getting Back Together, Ever

by at . Comments

Amber Portwood and baby daddy Gary Shirley reunited this week following her release from prison, but they are not getting back together in a romantic sense. At all.

The former couple made it clear outside a Panera Bread restaurant in Indiana yesterday that despite hanging out, they are not giving the whole romance thing a go.

This is probably for the best.

Teen Mom fans don't need to be reminded that Amber Portwood was arrested for battering Gary Shirley in 2010, as MTV cameras were a-rollin' (above).

It did not go over well.

Portwood went on to have major problems with substance abuse, losing custody of their daughter Leah and ultimately getting sent away for five years.

Fortunately, Amber was released from prison Monday after just 17 months, thanks to time served, good behavior and completed course work behind bars.

That's awesome for her, as is her attitude after getting out, which makes us think that just maybe, she can stay clean for good now that she's a free woman.

As for Gary, it seems that the two of them are just trying to be civil and co-parent their daughter, which is also a good thing. Let's hope they keep it up.

We don't need any more videos like this. What we do need are the ever-rare success stories of couples who overcome their differences and work together.

Romantically together or not, they'll always be bound by Leah, so they've got to figure out a way to raise her right, and that means getting along.

Fingers crossed.

Good for him. She should get visitation and have to pay him child support. He's a good man for putting up with her as long as he did and trying to raise his little girl at the same time.
