Last month, Amber Portwood lost custody of her son.

This is not her first loss in court. That’s a bit of an understatement, actually.

Despite Amber’s criminal history and personal struggles, some of her castmates felt surprised.

In fact, some expressed astonishment, even sorrow. Do they see a side of Amber that fans and the courts don’t?

Andrew Glennon hoped to return to California, where he can work. In fact, he had job offers lined up.

However, he and Amber Portwood remained tied to each other forever by their son, James.

Andrew might have been less eager to move away if Amber hadn’t attacked him, striking him and then hacking at the door with a machete.

After family court heard both sides’ arguments, they reached a decision.

Andrew now has custody of James.

The court is allowing Andrew to move, with James. Amber feels devastated.

Briana Explains the Coronavirus
Briana DeJesus and her new boyfriend, Javier Gonzalez, are not worried about the coronavirus. And they demonstrated their lack of concern on this week’s Teen Mom 2.

When Briana DeJesus was promoting the show, she shared: “I’ve talked to Amber, I’ve reached out.”

She added: “I told her I’m always here if she needs anything.”

Briana DeJesus decided to let it all hang out in a pair of recent interviews. And Teen Mom 2 fans are likely to have a very mixed reaction to her comments.

Briana commented: “She seems to be doing okay.”

Relatively speaking anyway.

Briana then admitted that Amber’s doing well “for, you know, what has come her way.”

“I’ve talked to Amber,” Leah shared, without getting too specific about their conversation.

“And,” she continued, “I think Amber’s a very strong woman.”

That was … diplomatic.

As we previously reported, Catelynn Lowell claimed that Amber’s loss was “undeserved” after the news broke.

“I love you. I’m so sorry that this is happening and SO undeserved,” she claimed in a social media post.

“He needs you in his life,” Catelynn alleged of Amber’s son, James.

She affirmed: “YOU [know] ur truth and all the hard work you have done.”

Catelynn then instructed: “DON’T let ANYONE make you think differently! I’m here for you forever and always.”
