I'll be completely honest with you, I love watching Teen Mom. Maybe it's because my life is so drama free, but watching people constantly bicker over the most trivial things is pretty entertaining. But apparently for one of the Teen Moms, enough is enough, and now she's threatening to quit the show all together.
Amber Portwood, who just welcomed her second child, James, six months ago, sent out a series of tweets just hours before last week's episode of Teen Mom, threatening to quit the show because of how the show treats her.
“I can’t do this anymore,” she tweeted. “I have to quit this show.”
“The heartache this show has put me through is too much to bear anymore. If I will not be shown then there’s nothing more to do,” she continued. “My name will not get smeared anymore. I hope everyone is resting easy with the money they’ve made off of heartache and pain that I’ve endured.”
It's not totally clear what Portwood is referencing, but during the episode she talks about a miscarriage she had suffered and how hard that was. However, it didn't seem like her name was "smeared" at all. In fact, the scene went over really well with fans, who enjoyed the raw conversation Portwood had with Kristina Anderson, the wife of Portwood's ex-fiance and father of her first child Leah.
One fan pointed out to Portwood that she should stick it out considering she's getting paid good money to be on TV.
"Money is too easy and they pay too much. U can only do so many 'reality star boot camps' after teen mom ends. Get that money while someone still wants to pay u it!"
But the mom of two isn't concerned about that at all. She said it's all under control.
"No there's other things that I will do and it will be to help people like I've always only wanted to do!" she answered. "Stocks are full and house is paid off."
The day after her threats to quit, Portwood posted on Twitter again, calling out the people who sent her nasty comments online.
“You guys are the reason people commit suicide. Words hurt and I’m such a sweet person and those parts are never really shown,” she scolded. “I’ve only wanted to help children and teenagers not go through what I did, including my daughter.”
Portwood also later called out the editing on MTV, saying they don't show the whole story.
"People react to what they see," she admitted. "I can't necessarily just blame them. There's higher people who chose to make sure I'm never truly heard for there own benefit. I'm to good for that s**t."
As of right now, Portwood hasn't made an official statement saying she's leaving the show, but it wouldn't be surprising if she did. I would imagine that after nine years of having people follow you around with cameras, not to mention a stint in prison, one would want their privacy. Portwood has also threatened to quit in the past, but she never followed through on her threats. So really, it could go either way at this point.
