OK! Exclusive Video: Teen Mom OG's Amber Portwood Explains How She Finally Got Over Gary Once And For All
While it seemed from the first episode of Teen Mom OG that Amber Portwood is still pining over her ex, Gary Shirley, rest assured that Amber finally gets over him later on in the season. And what did it take? A new man in her life, that’s what.
In OKMagazine.com’s exclusive sit-down with Amber, she revealed that it was Matt Baier, to whom she’s now engaged, that helped her and Gary finally get over each other after being on and off for seven years. “I think [Matt] helped me get completely over him,” she said. “It was months before that though that I actually made the decision to not want to have the relationship with Gary anymore. Matt has helped a lot when it comes to both of us actually moving on.”
Amber also opens up about why she didn’t share photos of Matt on social media until recently—yes, it was on purpose!—and gives fans an update on her custody arrangement of six-year-old daughter, Leah. Plus, she talks a bit about Gary and Kristina’s baby on the way and if she plans on watching this season of the show for the first time. Fun fact: Amber refused to watch the previous four seasons of Teen Mom because she didn’t like watching herself not sober.
So watch our chat with Amber above, and stay tuned to OKMagazine.com for our exclusive video interviews with Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell, which are coming soon. And PS: Remember that we’ll be sharing exclusive clips, episode recaps, and Teen Mom OG news all season long, too!
Teen Mom OG airs tonight at 10pm on MTV. Are you happy Amber’s finally moved on from Gary? Do you think Gary will grant her joint custody of Leah? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
