Amber’s brother, Shawn begs, “Help me help her please. She is a great person and no one really sees it.”

Shawn Portwood, Amber Portwood‘s brother, just started a new Facebook group called “Help Amber Portwood” (you can find it here: and on the new page he says: “Gary got what he got and in my opinion deserved it!” Obviously Shawn is talking about the Teen Mom episode when Amber punched her then-boyfriend, Gary Shirley in the head in front of their little baby, Leah. And you’re right, Shawn! He totally deserved it! He was asking Amber if they could “take a break” for four days so he could go hang out with another girl! Not cool, Gary! (But yes, it would have been better if Amber punched him when little Leah wasn’t around!)

Shawn goes on to say, “She paid for her actions and will continue to pay—She has feelings and emotions and hearing her cry because everyone hates her breaks my heart.” What?? We LOVE Amber and think she should get her own show! If not on MTV, then on a different network! We could watch her all day long!  And adorable little Leah too!

Clearly the Portwood family is upset about the way Amber is being portrayed on the Teen Mom series, as Shawn says, “MTV is poisoning people’s minds with this nonsense.” And guess who was one of the first Facebook members to join the “Help Amber Portwood” group? Amber’s ex, Gary Shirley!
