Amber Portwood, one of MTV's original “Teen Moms,” reveals that she never got along with castmate Farrah Abraham (who has arguably gained some sort of stardom, or at least notoriety, since the reality show) when they would meet at reunion specials.
Portwood, who was recently released from prison, sat down with Life & Style magazine (via Enstarz.com) and explained the nature of her relationship with Abraham. "We hated each other for a long time," she said. "Behind the scenes at reunions, there were several incidents where things got heated. Nobody was backing down. We both at the time had some huge attitudes."
But the bitterness has since subsided. Portwood told the magazine she no longer harbors any ill will toward the “Couples Therapy” star. "I'd love to give Farrah a hug now. I would like to reconnect now that we've both grown up."
But Portwood isn't feeling so charitable toward “Teen Mom 2” starlet Jenelle Evans. In fact, she thinks a bit of prison time would do Evans some good.
"As scary as it seems, it would change her life for the better,” she said. Like Portwood, Evans has been in and out of trouble with authorities on drug charges. She was even arrested for possession of heroin. Though Evans maintains she’s clean, Portwood doesn’t believe the pregnant star has been able to kick her addiction. "It's not like you can wake up one day and be like, hey, I'm clean,'" she noted.
But Portwood didn’t stop there. She also harped on the fact that Evans doesn’t have custody of her first son, Jace, but decided to get pregnant for a second time. "You have one child you need to think about before you have another."
Hearing of Portwood’s comments, Evans took to Twitter:
I love how it look towards more of the positive side of things, yet ex teen moms want to try to bring me down. It's sad, focus on yourself.
