The new season of Teen Mom OG is almost here! And that means another glimpse into the everyday life of “production puppet” Amber Portwood.
We know how things go for Amber — she ends up pregnant with her second child, and not by Matt Baier. Their engagement is over.
But it won’t be until we actually watch Season 7 that we see exactly how she got to where she is. But here’s a sneak peek into Amber and Matt’s crumbling relationship.
Whether you need to set your DVRs or you just watch Teen Mom OG online, folks, the new season is nearly upon us.
That means a lot.
Big highlights are going to include seeing Farrah Abraham get up to her usual nonsense … in what might be her final season.
Remember, Farrah Abraham announced that MTV had fired her over her sex work.
Other reports suggested that perhaps the real problem was that no one likes Farrah.
Farrah walked it back later, saying that she had learned that she was not fired, but … we don’t know what to make of all of that.
Farrah isn’t exactly considered to be a reliable source.
Regardless, we don’t know if we’ll see her on MTV again or not, so we’ll have to “treasure” these last moments with Farrah.
(Or maybe just plan a party for her final episode)
But let’s not allow that to distract us from Amber Portwood.
Remember, she goes from an engagement to Matt Baier to seeing a new man — Andrew Glennon.
Who is also her baby daddy.
So we’re eager to see every step that she took in going from point A to point B.
In the clip below, Amber Portwood is struggling in her relationship with Matt Baier.
And she’s clearly stressing about things.
Between a need to pamper herself a little and the realities of being a celebrity — that she’s filmed and photographed and wants to look her best — Amber goes in to get her eyelashes done by an esthetician named Beth.
But there’s no rest for the famous, so she gets asked how things are going.
And the short answer is that they’re … not great.
“I feel like with Matt a bunch of different stuff,” Amber says.
“I don’t know what is real, what’s not real.”
That can happen a lot in rocky relationships, especially when celebrity status is involved. You hear so much — but what do you believe?
Amber lists the things that she’s fed up with:
“With all the women bulls–t, the kid s–t, him, just the way he was sometimes.”
She’s already saying “was.” Foreshadowing their eventual split?
Of course, Amber’s mother, Tonya, has her own opinion about Matt Baier.
And she’s not being subtle about it.
“He’s just being a horrible person.”
Amber doesn’t quite see it that way, countering:
“He’s not a horrible person,” she says calmly while Beth works on her eyelashes.
But Tonya’s sticking to her point of view, describing Matt Baier as “a con.”
And this is what prompts Amber to back down from badmouthing Baier because she says that she does love him and they have great times together.
Clearly, in the long run, those “great times” weren’t enough.
Amber and her mother also mention what they have planned to try to fix things.
Their appearance on Marriage Boot Camp, of course!
(Has there ever been a series that treats its title as just a suggestion to this degree?)
As we all know, this doesn’t quite work out the way that they’d imagined, since Amber Portwood’s baby daddy is a Marriage Boot Camp producer.
And yes, the two of them met while Amber and Matt were filming that series.
Life comes at you fast, as they say.
