'Teen Mom OG' Star Amber Portwood Announces She's Leaving the Show After Explosive Reunion Fight

By
Amber Portwood is done with Teen Mom OG. The MTV reality series’ original star took to Twitter late Thursday night to tell fans that she was leaving the show.
“Sad to say but I'm not going to be apart of #Teenmomog. The way I have been portrayed and treated is unfair. @MTV sending all my love,” she wrote.
The mother of 8-year-old Leah continued, writing, “If I was treated fairly it wouldn't be an issue but it's been nothing but disrespect since the reunion show, which keeps continuing today.”
She also seemingly threw shade at an unnamed co-star, adding, “Nothing has been dealt with or has made me feel any safer to even move on with people who have continuously hidden things from the network.”
The 26-year-old reality star concluded her rant by noting, “The day I'm shown some respect by the people I've worked with for 8 years is the day I'll be back. I've sacrificed a lot for this show. @MTV.”
These tweets come after Portwood and her co-star, Farrah Abraham, were involved in a physical altercation during the Dec. 5 reunion special of Teen Mom OG.
Portwood took a swing at Abraham after the former adult film star suggested that Portwood’s fiancé, Matt Baier, looked like “a pedophile.” Baier also got involved, pushing Abraham’s father, Michael, to the floor when he tried to intervene.

After the episode aired, Portwood took to Twitter, saying it had been unfairly edited.
"They cut out Michael literally screaming in my face calling me a b**ch and him putting his hands on Matt's neck...disgusted,” she claimed.
This isn’t the first time a member of the Teen Mom OG cast has threatened to quit the show. Previously, Abraham was excluded from the reboot after her work in the adult film industry, and when co-star Maci Bookout discovered Abraham was rejoining the show, she left for several episodes.
Finally, Bookout returned, choosing to briefly keep her son, Bentley, off the air while Abraham was still being featured. The Tennessee native changed her mind on that issue as well, eventually bringing Bentley back.
Following Portwood’s Twitter rant, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans replied to one of her tweets about the MTV show, writing, “Wow that’s funny… I’m going through the same thing with them right now lol.”
Portwood has publicly struggled with violence and addiction, and spent several months in jail in an effort to stay sober.
