This girl is clearly guilty, and if it had been the other way around Gary would be sitting in the cell with no questions asked, he would have been guilty and serving time. I also think that this dumb ass show is telling kids that it is ok to get pregnant at such a young age, and as a matter of fact this season has a girl on it that should be charged with the same thing, cause she hit her mom on the show!!! MTV you really need to look at what you put on the air...

So, why in the world is MTV still filming her? I thought the premise of the show was following around teen MOMS as they illustrate the hardships of MOTHERHOOD. This little hood rat is NOT a mother. She doesn't even have custody of her daughter. The last thing I want to do is watch some pudgy, pill-addicted wannabe fame whore gallivanting around, hooking up with random ex-cons while her poor daughter suffers all the more for MTV having their grimy paws in the situation. MTV needs to stop paying this failure and feeding her overinflated ego. Maybe then she'll come back down to reality.

""The guy who got hit showed impressive self-control.

The macho men who say "I would've hit her.", well, you would have been awarded two things for that:

1. Jail time.
2. A beatdown in lockup from someone more macho than you - they don't like men who hit women""

Like I said, any one that stands there and lets them self get beaten on, even by a woman, is damned wimp!

Ever since the beginning of the whole "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" craze, this girl has caused nothing but trouble. She should be ashamed of herself and her actions. And Gary is no saint either. He should have left the first time it happened and took that baby with him...now look at the mess he's in. Not only is Leah going to have to grow up having Amber Portwood as her mother...but she is also going to have to deal with the pathetic set of parents she gets to call "mom" and "dad".

I bet not once, either one of them thought about what kind of an effect this ordeal will have on Leah. I know that when my daughter was born...it was about her and how I could make sure she has a good life. These two knuckleheads have decided to see how much of an embarrassment they can make of each other. Grow up, get over yourself Amber(you're not even pretty) and learn how to be a better parent before you even think about having another child(god forbid).

hey i like amber, yes i think she needs some counsiling of some kind but i dont think shes a bad person, i think she loves her daughter very much and would never neglect leah or harm her in any way. everyone deserves a second chance, if it were you, you would want one too.

First off, serves her right. And I'm sick of hearing people call Gary a wimp. He showed his daughter self control when he didnt respond to Ambers beating. Yeah' hes got some growing up to do, but the fact that he didnt lash out, and simply took Leah to safety shows ALLOT for his character. I hope he gets custody of Leah.
