AMBER Portwood accused her baby daddy Andrew Glennon of “taking every single thing” from her – including their 1-year-old son – after her domestic violence arrest.
On the season premiere of Teen Mom OG, Amber, 29, dealt with the aftermath of her July 5 arrest, where she was accused of attacking Andrew with a machete while he held their son James.
When asked if she would ever reconcile with her ex-boyfriend, she responded: “F**k no!”
She continued: “This guy is on a level of something I’ve never discovered in my life.
“Bro you are literally taking me for every single thing I have ever worked for in my life! To the point of my son. I couldn’t believe it at first. We’re at war.”
Because of the arrest, Amber considered missing her daughter Leah’s first day of school.
She told Leah’s dad Gary Shirley: “There is so much embarrassment right now with what’s going on. My character has been completely trashed.
“It hurts so bad that I can’t just… as a mom it hurts. Every time I see Leah I think about James. It hurts.”
In the end, Amber decided to go to her daughter’s first day of school.
But when they got to the school, Leah did not want her parents to walk her into the building.
Amber said later on: “I wanted to be there of course. I feel like Leah was really nervous. She’s older now she knows what’s up. Instead of happiness… there was too much anxiety and nervousness.
“I don’t want her to have to go through anything like that. I just didn’t want to ruin anything. I didn’t want to embarrass her.”
Despite the hardship, Amber explained how she is “proud” of how she handled the arrest.
She told Gary that her “number one regret” is that she “did not walk out of that house.”
She said: “I look back and I am so ashamed. Amber, you should’ve walked out of that house.”
But she insisted: “There are limits to somebody with mental health disorders. There is only so much somebody like me can handle. People like me will understand that.”
Amber suffers from bipolar and borderline personality disorders.
When Gary said she has learned from her mistakes, she responded: “I just have a lot of guilt of not being aware of myself more than I should have.
“I really do feel ashamed that I didn’t have that. I should after all the things I have done to change.”
Amber accepted a plea deal and is on probation for three years.
After the arrest, Andrew filed for emergency full and legal custody of James.
As part of their court agreement, Andrew has primary custody of James, while they share joint legal custody.
Amber has three unsupervised visits a week with their son.
Teen Mom OG airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
