Amber Portwood Throws A Reunion Fit
The MTV star looked completely taken aback when Gary stated shared Leah’s secret. “She’s speaking to somebody, a professional,” Shirley reveals.
“You probably didn’t know this. Per Leah’s request, she didn’t want it to be talked about. I have permission to talk about it and to make it known.” Gary went on telling Portwood and Dr. Drew that Leah felt uncomfortable about it up until now and wanted the news kept quiet.
“I supported that” he continues. “I was like, it’s your safe spot.”
Shirley claims Leah and her doctor are working on different things she can do to help the communication start between her mom and her. …”She’s gone, I think about ten times.”
That was all Amber Portwood needed to hear before she let her temper get the best of her and began her rant towards Gary. “Here is the thing, I’m the mother. I need to understand what Leah is going through. So, I believe the communication should be there for that, Portwood exclaimed. “I also think that Leah is a child. She is not an adult. She doesn’t need to say anything, but you can tell me.”
The argument between Shirley and Portwood continued to mount as Gary attempted to explain his reasoning with Amber.
“She wasn’t going to go unless she felt safe and had somewhere safe to say what she wants. I was trying to let you know.”

However, Amber was not quite finished telling Shirley just what she thought about his deception.
From the side of the reunion stage, Amber continued on with her rant, “You came here with some bull crap. I just found out on camera, of course. Everything you do is for television. Done!” Portwood turned to Dr. Drew and screamed “Everything that he does is for television. I’m out! Bye. I’m not for it!” Amber then called Gary out telling him the only reason he has any money is because of her.
