Maci Bookout is trying to get the Amber Portwood supporters out there to follow @WeSupportAmber on Twitter. Are you for Team Amber?
Despite the fact that she was arrested and spent 24 hours in jail on charges of domestic violence and child neglect, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood still has a lot of fans, and some of them — including her cast mate Maci Bookout — are showing their support for the troubled 20-year-old by following @WeSupportAmber on Twitter. Are you going to follow it, too?
“Everyone follow @Wesupportamber ..” Maci tweeted on Dec. 29. “They are there for full support to my friend first and fellow cast member :)” Amber is facing a court hearing on Jan. 19 where the fate of her 2-year-old daughter Leah will be decided. “Not seeing Leah would be the most horrific thing,” Amber told Life & Style magazine in her first post-jail interview. “It scares me so bad! Not being able to see her every day and hold her, put her to sleep and dress her like my little doll… I would just be so depressed and going crazy.”
Although she might realize that her daughter means everything to her, Amber has done some scary stuff that can’t be forgotten that easily. Physically assaulting someone (MTV shot countless scenes where she was shown hitting her baby daddy, Gary Shirley) and neglecting your child is not something that should be taken lightly. “Amber is going to do time,” family attorney Michael Kelly tells Life & Style. “You can quote me on that. And there is no chance of her keeping the child.”
We think Amber needs to work on her personal struggles and her behavior first before she can be the main caregiver for Leah. Do you support Amber?
