It’s no secret that Amber Portwood’s fiance, Matt Baier, was portrayed as a pretty grimy person on the previous season of ‘Teen Mom OG,’ but if there’s anything Amber wants fans to take away from this new season, which premieres on Aug. 22, it’s the fact that he’s not all that bad.
At least, according to her. We’ve seen tonight’s 2-hour premiere of Teen Mom OG already, and we hate to say it, but we’re not yet convinced. We won’t say what happens because we don’t want to spoil it for you, but we will say that Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans are involved.
Regardless, during an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.com, Amber Portwood told us that despite mentioning Matt Baier‘s “crazy exes” in the new season’s trailer, he’s not the “slimy guy” everyone thinks he is.
“I think one thing people are going to see is how a lot of the child support cases against him were dropped. They’re going to take a step back and say, ‘Oh wow, maybe I was wrong.’ Matt doesn’t have that many kids and he was put out there as this horrible person that he isn’t. It completely shocked him. I had to try to stick with it and stay with him, and thank God I did or it would have been a mistake. We’re doing great today,” she said.
When we asked how she feels about her ex, Gary Shirley, exposing Matt’s alleged past, she said Gary has since apologized profusely. “That’s not Matt today — that wasn’t even him a couple years ago. I don’t want people to think he’s this slimy guy when he’s so amazing. I want people to see what I see,” she added.
We hear Amber, but we’re going to have to wait and see.
