MTV’s reality project Teen Mom has swept the nation, documenting the struggles of young girls with babies and bringing awareness to teen pregnancy. While the group of gals featured in the series do share a common bond in having children at a very young age, that doesn’t mean that they have to get along. New reports reveal that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood isn’t so pleased with Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans and her "embarrassing" behavior.

While Amber has been struggling with her own share of legal woes, including a custody battle and even domestic violence accusations from baby-daddy Gary Shirley, the Indiana native thinks Jenelle, going through similar circumstances, isn’t handling her role as a parent well.

“She's an idiot and I don't care if people know or not. I literally have worked my ass off because of this whole battery thing to make sure I keep my daughter Leah,” Amber explained of Jenelle neglecting to take her custody battle with mother Barbara over her son seriously, in her opinion.
