Amber Portwood
Indiana officials confirm ... the 20-year-old faces two felony counts and one misdemeanor for allegedly attacking 24-year-old Gary Shirley three separate times from August 2009 to July 2010.

GOOD FOR THEM!! SOMETIMES it's not the man who is the abuser... Women are just as hateful, and mean and some men when they do stand up and fight back get the charges brought against them.

Lock her ass up and take the child from her!

She totally deserves it! She is such trash and treated Gary like ****. He is way too good for such an awful person like herself. I feel bad for the child, for having such a messed up mom. Gary should get full custody of the kid.

There should be a law which allowed mothers to whip their man on to the job.

Ludvig Holbjerg's play from 1722: "Jeppe of the Hill" shows how a mother need to treat her husband when he doesn't bring food on the table.

While some community service hours with some manual labor would do her good regarding her figure I fear for the child in his costudy while she is paying for her so-called crime.

WOW!!!Niktini you have some Anger issues!! I agree with the fat disgusting pig thing, but the rest was uncalled for!

Maybe you and Amber should attend Anger Management together or beat each other up! LOL

Anyways, I don't get why this young girl thought it was ok to hit and punch another person? Did she grow up with her parents physically abusing each other?? Try fixing the problem before taking her away from her child who needs her, the girl needs therapy

If she will attack him when the cameras are on who knows what might happen with her kid when the camera's aren't watching her or when the kid gets a little older and becomes much more difficult to care for.

So how much does she weigh? 275? 315? How could ANY self-respecting man ever climb that? She's an omoeba... soaked in fat-sweat.

Sadly, nothing will happen to her, and most of us know it. Magic Vagina (however well-hidden by fat) wins again.
