Gary Shirley to Amber Portwood: Sorry for Admitting You’re a Bad Mother!

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley never really had the greatest relationship, but they do share a daughter, Leah, so they pretty much have to get along with each other for the rest of their lives.

Think about that for a second, being forced to deal with Amber for all the rest of your days …

It's no wonder Gary snapped, right?

In last night's episode of Teen Mom OG, he had some pretty harsh things to say about her — harsh, but true.

Amber didn't take it well, so no surprise there, but what was surprising was that Gary took the time to apologize to her on Twitter for everything he said during the episode.

Because again, what he said was true.

Here, let's just review everything, and you can see if you think Gary needed to apologize, OK?

1. A Bad Match

OK, so Amber and Gary were always terrible together, from the very first moment we ever saw either of them on Amber’s 16 and Pregnant episode. They just don’t get along well. Even in their happiest moments, there was always some issue — remember when he tried to propose and she got mad because he didn’t use the exact words she wanted to hear?

2. SMH

These two broke up, got back together, got engaged, then broke up again more times than we can even count, and it took Amber going to prison to really end things for good between them.

3. Hey, Kristina!

While Amber was incarcerated, Gary met Kristina, who he went on to marry and have another child with. Kristina became the mother figure that little Leah never really had. Everyone loves Kristina.

4. Shame, Shame

Gary did lead Amber on a bit during this time though — he didn’t make it clear to her when he was in prison that their relationship was over, and he strung her along when she got out. But through it all, he was always a good father to Leah, and that’s what we’re talking about here.

5. Choices

Meanwhile, Amber chose to stay in prison, away from her young daughter, instead of going to rehab, and when she was back home, she chose to get involved with creepy Matt Baier instead of rebuilding her relationship with her kid.

6. Tsk Tsk

She mentioned trying to get custody of Leah back a few times, but then never really talked about it again. And in the time that she’s been out of prison, she hasn’t seemed to make seeing her at all that much of a priority.

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley: I Made You Rich, Loser!

If you watched this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, then you know that Amber Portwood didn’t exactly come off looking great.

But amazingly, her tweets during the show proved even more damaging to her reputation!

The episode sees Amber’s baby daddy, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, voicing some of the same criticisms that fans have been directing at Amber in recent months.

Like so many of the show’s viewers, Gary and Kristina apparently feel that Amber should’ve spent more time looking into Andrew Glennon’s sketchy past before she started dating him seriously and got pregnant with his baby.

Not only that, they take issue with Amber not seeing her daughter for months and using her depression as a justification–despite the fact that she was apparently mentally healthy enough to begin dating Glennon.

Maybe Amber was depressed, and maybe too much is being made of Glennon’s past, but it’s not hard to see why a father and stepmother might be concerned by the situation.

And Gary voiced those concerns at length in the episode:

“I don’t know what skeletons he has in his closet, but honestly, she should have waited,” he said to Kristina.

“She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility as being a mother than jumping into a relationship. Well, she was, like, ‘I was mourning.’ I know that you’re sad after breaking up with someone — I get it.”

“But your daughter can bring you just as much happiness,” Kristina interjected.

Not surprisingly, Gary agreed:

“From day one I’ve been a parent! From day one my issues never came in and stopped me from being a dad, you know?” he continued.

“I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you can go off and do what you want to do. I mean, that would be f–king awesome! You know? And you’re OK with it because you’re used to it. But you know, there’s one person that’s not OK with it, and that’s Leah.”

From there, Kristina spiked the football by recounting a recent exchange with Leah:

“It’s just like she told me, you know? ‘Matt was in the picture. Mommy broke up with Matt. Mommy don’t come around then because she’s too depressed,'” she recalled.

“But then, all of a sudden, she brings over Andrew and she says: ‘Well Kristina, if she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?’ And, you know, what do I say to that?”

Gary then recalled a period of time in which Leah was so depressed by her mother’s absence that she did nothing but sleep.

“Let’s adopt Leah,” Kristina proposed.

“I’m with you,” Gary replied.

Not surprisingly, Amber had much to say about the situation on social media:

“Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be?” she tweeted.

“Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

And if you thought she’d stop there, you don’t know Amber:

“[Kristina] broke up her family for money and tv!” Amber tweeted, targeting Gary’s wife.

“Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!”

“Restraining order to keep my child from filming,” Kristina replied.

“I am an active mother to my children so quit hating. I’ve never stepped on your toes as a mother nor will I ever. I care for Leah when she is in our care. Love don’t hate.”

Then things got even more bizarre when Farrah Abraham’s father, Michael, interjected:

“Kristina stay strong. DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY you. You’re the real proven mother figure here,” Michael tweeted.

“Gary has always been the rock solid father protecting his children with you in full support and I’m thankful to God for both of you – the world knows the truth and that’s pure FACT.”

We’d say this situation can’t get any weirder, but Michael Abraham just got involved, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up on all of this season’s intense drama.

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley and MTV in Epic Rant!

Amber Portwood is going through a lot right now.

A whole, whole lot.

She's pregnant, and those hormones are never easy on anyone, but on top of that situation, she's also unable to take her usual medications for her mental illnesses.

Throw in the fact that she's on a reality show, and also the fact that she was still dealing with her breakup with Matt Baier when she met, began dating, and got impregnated by Andrew Glennon …

It's a lot, OK?

So it makes sense that all those different emotions would bubble up and explode sometime … and that time was yesterday.

The place of the explosion? Twitter.

The results? Well, you'll just have to see.

1. Bad Times

Amber portwood in good light
On this season of Teen Mom OG, we’re learning what a toll Amber’s breakup with Matt really took on her. It has not been pretty.

2. Oh, Amber …

Amber has said that after the breakup, she fell into a deep depression, and that things were so bad that she was only able to see her daughter, Leah, twice during her entire summer vacation.

3. Um

She managed to find plenty of time to get into a relationship with Andrew and to become pregnant, but sure, the depression kept her away from Leah. All right.

4. More Drama

On the most recent episode of the show, Gary Shirley and his wife, Kristina, discussed the situation. It wasn’t a disrespectful conversation — they just talked about Andrew’s sketchy past, and Kristina revealed that they’d told Leah that her mother hadn’t been around because of her depression.

5. Real Talk with Leah

But at one point in the episode, Leah asked Kristina “If she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?” From the mouths of babes, right?

6. Rewind

OK, so all of that, plus Amber’s pregnancy reveal, happened on the episode. But you know how the cast members get to preview the episodes just before they air? It seems like Amber got to see everything just a few hours before we did — and she was not pleased with what she saw.

Gary Shirley on Amber Portwood Pregnancy: This is Too Fast!

Gary Shirley does not mince words.

When it comes to the personal life and decisions of Amber Portwood, his former fiancee, Gare-Bear is never going to bite his tongue.

They have a kid together, after all.

As the father of Amber's daughter Leah, and the one who had primary custody for much of her life, Gary certainly has reason to talk.

After the news that she's expecting a baby with Andrew Glennon, one could only imagine the thoughts running through Gary's head.

Well, imagine no longer.

Gary spoke to In Touch about her relationship, as well as her previous romance with Matt Baier, and tried to reserve judgment. Mostly …

1. The Parents-to-Be

Portwood’s baby news took a lot of people by surprise, as the two had just started dating. “I’m very excited for my future with Andrew and our little family we are starting together!” Amber said in announcing her surprise pregnancy this fall.

2. They Sure Are

Amber’s impending child will leave Farrah Abraham as the only one of the four OGs with only the original child from their 16 & Pregnant days … how does Portwood’s ex, and her daughter’s father, feel about it?

3. Thumbs Up From Gary

“I think she is less controlled now,” he told In Touch, comparing her relationship with Andrew Glennon to her previous onewith Matt Baier.

4. Still, Pretty Fast Though

“With Matt, I think she needed to take time to heal,” he adds, noting just how strenuous her romance with Baier was, though he is careful to add that “it’s her life, not mine.”

5. Hedging His Praise

Gary has no problem with the guy, but … “I don’t know him [well] enough,” Shirley said of Glennon, adding, “I’m not saying she should’ve waited on him. I think she should’ve dated.” But … getting pregnant?

6. The Truth Comes Out

Gary said earlier this year, “I think the last time they talked … I don’t know what they’re doing … but I think he was trying to relocate or something. I think she should’ve stayed single longer.”

Amber Portwood: Ex Gary Shirley Dishes on Her New Boyfriend!

Amber Portwood sure seems to love shoving her new boyfriend down our throats, huh?

She’s been dating him for right about a month now, and we’re already sick to death of hearing about the guy.

But, to recap, her new beau’s name is Andrew Glennon, and he lives out in L.A., where he’s been working for several years in the television industry.

He had a gig on the most recent season of Marriage Boot Camp, and that’s where Amber met him — she was there trying to repair her ridiculously toxic relationship with Matt Baier.

They didn’t get together then, but a couple of weeks after filming wrapped up, he reached out to her.

After chit-chatting for a minute, he flew out to Indiana to visit her, and it seems like they’ve been attached at the hip ever since.

It’s a little alarming, considering that this is a lot like how her relationship with Matt began.

He approached her, she was receptive, he came to visit and he never, ever left.

But for now, we’ll have to go ahead and give Andrew the benefit of the doubt.

After all, it’s not like he could possibly be worse than Matt. Right?

(Please let that be right.)

Though they haven’t been together very long, Amber is moving pretty fast with this guy.

He’s already met her daughter, Leah, and she brought him out to Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

And according to Amber’s ex and the father of Leah, Gary Shirley, she may be moving a little too fast.

“I don’t know him enough,” Gary says in a new interview with In Touch.

“I’m not saying she should’ve waited on him. I think she should’ve dated.”

We’re not exactly sure what that part means, but he also reveals that “I think the last time they talked — I don’t know what they’re doing — but I think he was trying to relocate or something.”

Wait, so they’re already talking about him moving out to Indiana?!

Forget the fact that they’ve only been dating for a month — she’s known him for three months, at best.

After everything that happened with Matt, all the stealing and manipulating and possible cheating, she’s really willing to bring a relative stranger across the country and into her home?

And on top of that, what’s wrong with Andrew that he’d be willing to leave his whole career behind to be with Amber?

Last we heard, the film industry in Indiana isn’t exactly booming.

There are no words for how ridiculous this is turning out to be — but don’t worry, Gary’s got a few more.

“I think she should’ve stayed single longer and really gotten to know herself and get over someone before getting with someone else because that’s how you do it, man,” he wisely states.

“The correct way.”

He adds that “You don’t need someone to make you feel like you’re living.”

When did Gary Shirley become Teen Mom’s voice of reason?

It’s hard to say — but probably sometime around the time that he dug up the truth about Matt’s many, many children and all the child support he’d been failing to pay.

It feels kind of weird to say this, but Team Gary.

Team Gary all the way.
