AMBER Portwood has shared that she DID contact her Teen Mom co-star Catelynn Lowell after her devastating miscarriage, though the grieving mom claims otherwise.
The Teen Mom star insists that her cast-mate “forgot” that she reached out regarding the tragic loss.
Amber, 30, recently spoke to Us Weekly about the discrepancy between the co-stars, after Catelynn, 28, claims she was snubbed during her hardest moment.
In an interview with the publication, the mom of two reasoned: “I had spoken to Cate recently because I read an article that said Cheyenne was the only one who reached out to her.
“I don’t look up on social media or media about anybody on this show for good reason,” she clarified.
“I didn’t even know about what had happened until we were actually on the phone a couple of months ago. And I guess she forgot a little bit about that, which is OK, I love you Cate. It’s OK.”
The controversial star then added: “But I’m setting the record straight right there. We talked about it and it was pretty heartbreaking to find that out over the phone not knowing.
“It’s just hard. We’re just not as connected as we used to be. And to sit there and to know that your costars are hurt … it’s tough. There’s nothing we can do because of the pandemic. We can’t get on a plane necessarily. I don’t know, it’s emotionally hard.”
Catelynn originally told Us Weekly that only Cheyenne Floyd reached out with condolences following her miscarriage at the end of 2020, which “bugged” her.
The saddened mother spoke of their conversation: “She was like, ‘I’m so sorry. How are you doing? I’m here to talk,’ and we would message back and forth.
“For her just to ask, ‘Are you OK?’ I was like, ‘Wow.’ … I just let her know how important that was to me that she really reached out just to see how I was doing.”
She then explained that her other co-stars, Amber, Maci Bookout, and Mackenzie McKee, did not make the same effort, claiming that their inaction “bugged” her.
“I feel like I reach out to them a lot when they’re going through things.
“I try to be there, but I also have to have that mindset that everybody is not going to do what I would do,” she revealed.
The 16 & Pregnant star insisted that previously they would discuss such struggles, adding to her shock at the lack of communication.
“Not so much parenting advice, but it’s really like, ‘Hey, how are you doing? How is your relationship? How is the family? What’s been going on?’”
Catelynn publicized her devastating news in December of last year, where she told fans: “I WAS pregnant and excited to share it with all of you and I am heartbroken to reveal that I lost the baby.
“I am sharing this to let you know you are not alone. We are all in this together and everyone experiences pain, loss, and the recovery from it.”
The MTV star has three daughters with her husband Tyler Baltierra, Vaeda, one, Novalee, six, and Carolyn, 11, who was adopted by Brandon and Teresa Davis.
