'Teen Mom' -- Staging Another Controversy?

12/31/2010 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It appeared as if "Teen Mom" dad Gary Shirley got into another random "controversy" last night -- and the whole thing just "happened" to have been captured on tape. Coincidence? We think not.

The newest drama went down at Buffalo Wild Wings in Anderson, Indiana -- where Gary ran into Amber Portwood's newly crowned ex-boyfriend Clint ... and got into a verbal confrontation with Clint's brother.

But here's the rub -- once again, Gary's friend taped the whole thing ... only this time, he was inciting other people in the restaurant and threatening to make them "famous" by selling the video to other media outlets.

It's clear Gary knows what his friend is up to -- so we gotta ask ... is the whole thing a setup to make money? And if Gary knows conflict sells ... was the "violence" between him and Amber staged?

Amber told police the violence was "real" and not made-for-TV -- are you buyin' that?

All I have to say is that I spent 4 years in Muncie IN and I know people from Anderson and Yorktown. This trailer trash embarasseses the people that I know from those communities. Please don't judge the people from that area by what you see on this show.
Harvey should send some of his people into these towns as corespondents for a week just so they can truly see how middle America lives. Especially that surfer guy because I would just love to see how he would react with the Indiana people. But divert the chick with the glasses and the thick Jewish looking chick to Chicago because they are hot.

Amber makes $280,000 a year according to court testimony. Yeh, this is all staged. Like Heidi and Spencer. These kids know a good thing and they're running with it.

There was a day when people took pride in having a clean record, no charges, no arrests. Today it's a way to earn money. Do something that is unacceptable, tape it, and get arrested! How immature! But with the media hungry for getting an exclusive, why not? We have lost our pride. Do something for charity and you can get as much coverage for doing something good. Corny? It's your choice!

Gary is a creepy famewhore, apparently. Jon Gosselin the second.

I would encourage TMZ to stop reporting on them. This obese idiot needs to get a real job. You are buying into his trash.

Yea, these folks need to just go away. Sad to think that this is entertainment. What kind of message is this sending out to teens. Especially from these two.

Honestly, it appears that Gary's friend is the one desperately trying to acheive "fame". He follows Gary around with a phone trying to capture any drama in his life, and then probably tries to sell the footage for $$. Gary seems to be talking to the other guys trying to calm the situation. His friend is the one who keeps trying to stir things up. Gary is probably to stupid to realize his friend is such a leach.
