Amber Heard: BLASTED for Racist Tweet About Housekeepers

Amber Heard would like to make two things very clear:

1. She is not racist.

2. The country has a major problem with racism.

The actress found herself at the center of a controversy related to this pair of issues on Tuesday, following a Tweet she wrote in response to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) setting up a road block near her home.

This is what the 32-year old star wrote shortly after midnight today:

“Just heard there’s an ICE checkpoint in hollywood, a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies and landscapers a ride home tonight,” Tweeted Heard.

Her point here, of course, was that many housekeepers, nannies and landscapers are undocumented immigrants and that ICE may detain and deport them.

Is she wrong? Probably not, as a sort of extreme generalization.

But we can see why the Tweet caused some uproar, can’t you?

“I can see where you were going but somewhere along the way you took a wrong turn. Delete this sis,” one social media wrote.

Heard did delete the post, but she didn’t apologize for it.

Instead, she simply made the same point in a different way.

“With this human rights crisis being so politicized, it is hard to make a simple statement w/out it being used to distract from the real issues,” she explained, adding:

“Its hard for everyone to not be negatively affected by this subject n some way.”

Heard, of course, is talking about the ongoing debate over immigration, which has been spurred on by the separation of children from their parents at the border.

She later added:

“Checkpoints on your home streets….Is this the ‘great’ America we’re aiming for?” Heard wondered on Twitter as well, 10 minutes after she published her incendiary tweet.

“Raids, fences and police-state like checkpoints don’t feel like the ‘land of the free’ our immigrant ancestors built.”

Heard shared a slew of photos on her Instagram page last week while attending a #KeepFamiliesTogether rally in Marcelino Serna Port of Entry in Texas, her home state.

One image of the actress depicts her sporting a sign that read:

“Apartheid was legal. Holocaust was legal. Legality is a matter of power, not justice.”

She was joined at similar protests around the country by such celebrities as Lena Dunham, Joshua Jackson, Connie Britton, Evan Rachel Wood and Sia.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Heard – who was born and raised in Austin – burst into tears.

She takes this issue extremely seriously and very personally.

“I was literally and figuratively raised by and with immigrants in my home and heart and life,” she told the website.

Heard, meanwhile, split from Elon Musk last summer, several months after she finalized a very messy divorce from Johnny Depp.

Amber Portwood: I’m Actually Going to Try to Be a Good Mom This Time!

So hey, have you been keeping an eye on Amber Portwood lately?

Because what’s been going on with her is pretty darn bizarre.

Like, if you think of Amber Portwood, you don’t think of anything good, you know?

You think about the time she hauled off and hit Gary Shirley in the face, or you think about the time he was walking down some stairs and she kicked him right in the back, and how if he wasn’t such a big dude she actually could have seriously hurt him with that.

Or you think about how much she always screamed and yelled at Gary right in front of their daughter, Leah.

Or you think about how she used to leave Leah crying in her crib while she laid in bed.

Or about how she chose to serve a five-year prison sentence instead of giving rehab another go, and how she thinks that makes her the best mother in the history of mothers.

Maybe your Teen Mom OG viewing began a little later in the series, and hearing Amber’s name brings back memories of the greasy horror that was Matt Baier.

There’s also a chance that the way she picked up Andrew Glennon while on Marriage Boot Camp with Matt sticks out the most in your mind, or how she went on to get pregnant with his child after knowing him for like two weeks.

Basically, Amber has always been a mess.

A great big one.

She’s violent, rude, self-centered, and just so many bad things.

But the weird thing is that lately, she’s been kind of … nice?

She went off on a few of her classic Twitter rants during her pregnancy — she’s never been great to turn down a chance to tell everyone what a “damn good mom” she is, even after getting called out for only seeing Leah twice during her summer vacation last year.

But as she got closer and closer to her due date, she seemed to calm down a lot, and after giving birth to a seriously adorable baby boy she named James back in May, she’s been almost serene.

It’s been nothing but calm, sweet social media posts, including the most precious pictures of her new baby.

And in this new interview she did with Us Weekly, she explains why she’s been so different lately …

Because this time around, she wants to be a damn good mom, for real!

About her first go at motherhood, she admits “I was clueless.”

“I didn’t want to ask questions because I didn’t want to sound young or stupid. This is a chance for me to really show what kind of mother I am.”

Leah’s is going to be 10 years old in November, so Amber’s had plenty of time to show what kind of mother she is with her, but sure, let’s focus on the baby, whatever.

“Before, I wasn’t mature nor was the relationship right,” she explains. “I want to make sure I don’t fall into old patterns and get into a depressed state.”

“I have to take care of myself. Healthy mommy, healthy baby.”

She also says that unlike back when she and Gary had Leah, “I’m more driven and have the means to take care of a baby better.”

No one would argue that a 28-year-old would have an easier time raising a baby than an 18-year-old, but isn’t it a little odd how she’s acting like she’s completely done with parenting Leah, like she had her chance but it’s gone now?

Anyway, as for Andrew, Amber says “He is such an amazing man and loves taking care of James.”

“He was afraid of postpartum depression, so he’s always checking up on me. He just wants to make sure I’m loved. It’s almost perfect.”

We’re sure we’ll see that “almost” part in the next season of Teen Mom OG — after all, Amber is known for her habit of making things seem perfect on social media before everyone sees how messy things actually are on the show.

But for now, we hope things really are going as well as they seem to be.

We also hope she realizes that she still has a chance to be a great mother to Leah, but one thing at a time, right?

Amber Portwood Shares ADORABLE New Photo of Her Baby Boy!

Amber Portwood gave birth to her new baby — her second child and her first boy! — two weeks ago.

We haven’t heard much from her since, which is honestly probably a good thing.

It could be a sign she’s settling into motherhood again and bonding with her baby.

And if she’s doing that instead of going off on Twitter about haters or getting wasted like she did on Marriage Boot Camp or goodness knows what else, then hey, that’s definitely a win.

Let’s see, what do we know so far about Amber’s baby boy …

We know his name is James Andrew Glennon, James after Andrew’s late father (the rest is pretty obvious) — Amber revealed that when she announced the baby’s gender back in December.

She was originally due on Mother’s Day, but little James was just about a week early, entering the world on May 8th.

Specifically, he was born on May 8th at 1:39 AM, weighing in at seven pounds and eleven ounces.

And listen, this kid?

He’s almost TOO cute:

Look at him. Really, just look at that precious little face.

Can you even stand it?!

Amber captioned the photo “my sweet little angel,” which is also super cute — even though she hasn’t been on social media much lately, it’s fairly obvious she’s loving her life right now.

She’s got her comments disabled on Instagram, but over on Twitter, this photo has been getting tons of appreciation.

Many people have been telling her that James looks just like her, and others have been saying he looks exactly like his father.

Some are even insisting that he could be the twin of Leah, Amber’s daughter with Gary Shirley.

Babies, right? Such squishy, lovable little piles of genetics and sweentess.

In addition to all the comments on how adorable James is, Amber also had loads of her followers congratulating her on the birth of a healthy, happy baby, and for coming so far in her life.

Because honestly, she really, really has.

She once said that in the early days of Teen Mom, she was never not high while filming the show, and since it’s always easy to tell when she is high, we know that she’s clean right now.

So that’s already a huge step forward from when she was parenting baby Leah, right?

Oh, and in addition to the photo of her sweet baby, she also shared this cute one with Andrew, which she says was taken just a few days before their son was born:

“I love this beautiful man,” she wrote in the caption for that one. “What a blessing.”

With her cute little bump and his parenting book, complete with the highlighters, this really is a darling photo.

At the very least, it’s a vast improvement from the domestic violence that took place when Leah was a baby.

As hard as it may be to believe, it’s starting to look like Amber may be coming at motherhood from an entirely different angle this time around, and thank goodness for that.

A source claimed in a previous report that she is “so happy to be starting over with a guy like Andrew, and now that the baby is here, they are over the moon.”

Here’s hoping that that’s true, and that despite everything — Amber’s track record with parenting, Andrew’s track record with creeping — these two are able to take care of James with all the love he deserves.

Amber Portwood: Did She Sleep with Andrew Glennon on Marriage Boot Camp?!

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon just welcomed their first child together, an absolutely precious little boy named James.

But you know what's not so precious?

The way Amber pretty much lied about how they started dating.

To recap, we saw the beginning — or what we thought was the beginning — of their relationship on the last season of Teen Mom OG.

When Amber and Andrew went public with their love last August, she explained in an interview that although he had been working on the set of Marriage Boot Camp while she was filming her season with Matt Baier, they didn't interact.

"He didn't really know who I was and we didn't talk on the show because, you know, he would get in trouble," she said then, "but I didn't even know that he even liked me."

"It just simply was he had a little crush on me."

She said that he contacted her a few weeks after the show wrapped, and that "we decided we just wanted to be friends at first," but then he came out to visit her and there was more of a spark between them.

When she introduced Andrew on Teen Mom OG, she said that they were taking things slow and just getting to know each other.

She got pregnant about three seconds after he came in for his visit, so obviously things didn't work out that way, but that was her story.

Now, thanks to a super juicy little sneak peek for this week's episode of Marriage Boot Camp, we know that her story was a lie.

This week we'll be treated to a "Secrets Revealed" episode of the show — special little moments that they couldn't fit into the rest of the season.

If you watch the video, you'll see a bunch of dramatic clips from the other guests on the show, but if you make it all the way to the end, you'll see our Amber.

First, we see her pointing towards the camera, telling someone "I'm gonna figure out your name" — the insinuation, of course, that she was talking to Andrew.

Next, we hear about "the Teen Mom hookup that shocked America," and someone from production says that "we never had a crew member impregnate a Boot Camper before."

He didn't impregnate her on the show (she would have conceived in August), but we do see him creeping into a bedroom.

After that, the guy doing the dramatic voiceover for the trailer informs us that "our cameras caught everything" while the camera shows a bed with a big "censored" box over it.

And then — brace yourselves — we actually hear Amber go "oh my god."

Like, maybe in a sexy way.

Because as those of us well-versed in reality shows know, bedrooms are not off-limits for filming, and there are always cameras set up permanently in those rooms to get any footage the crew may miss.

So if, as this trailer suggests, Amber and Andrew had sex on set, they most certainly would have been caught.

There's a lot to unpack here, huh?

For one, this means that Amber lied about when she met Andrew, which is pretty dumb, considering she had to know that this would come out.

For two, it means that Andrew was really creeping on her that hard that he tried to hook up with her during filming.

Like, he saw her slamming back drinks and going off on everyone about everything, and he thought "yeah, I need to get with that kind of lady."

For three, this is a compilation episode of scenes throughout the season, so was Matt still around when these two started talking? Did she cheat on him?

This is a whole, whole lot of drama, and while we're sad that none of it was in Teen Mom or in the actual season of Marriage Boot Camp, we'll take what we can get!
