It looks like Amber Portwood is facing another disappointing consequence of breaking the law; a judge managing her case wouldn’t let her participate in the Teen Mom reunion special filmed this weekend.
The girls from Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 met up to tape a Teen Mom super-special, but Amber wasn’t able to travel from Indiana where she’s on probation and tethered by an ankle bracelet to New York City where the tapping took place.
Her absence will be disappointing for Teen Mom fans tuning into the special as well, but the confirmed attendees should supply plenty of drama and sweet moments. Adorable couple Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell let Catelynn’s brother Nick tag along which should only make the pair more endearing, and we’ll get to see Leah Messer interact with both her ex-husband Corey Simms and her future husband Jeremy Calvert. Fan’s of Amber’s daughter Leah won’t miss out; her dad Gary Shirley brought Leah by to smile for the cameras.
Watching the special might be a special wake up call for Amber. Not only will she see some of the moms in stable relationships working on their futures, she’ll also see her fellow moms playing with their children on a day she was legally barred from hanging out with her own. That should act as some great motivation to get her own life together.
