Andrew Glennon Defends His Decision to Date Amber Portwood Despite Her Behavior on ‘Marriage Boot Camp’; Continues to Deny Accusations Made by Amber

“Man, I wish I were that sloth.”

As the Amber Portwood/Andrew Glennon drama continues, Andrew (once again) has taken to Instagram to provide some insight on his relationship with the Teen Mom OG star—- before and after her July arrest. He recently revealed on Instagram why he pursued Amber following her time on Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition, despite her wild antics and aggressive behavior on the show.

As The Ashley previously told you, Amber was arrested July 5 for allegedly attacking Andrew with a shoe while he was holding the couple’s son James. Amber also allegedly pulled a machete on Andrew during the altercation. She’s since been charged with three felonies.

Since Amber and Andrew’s split, Andrew has answered questions from followers on social media, often to defend himself or his actions. When one of Andrew’s followers recently commented on a post accusing Andrew of knowing what he was signing up for when he entered into a relationship with Amber, being that he was around her during ‘Boot Camp’ while he was working on the show.

As viewers may remember, Amber’s temper was at an all-time high during her time on ‘Boot Camp.’ From screaming matches with her ex Matt Baier, to fights with the other cast members, Amber was hardly “sending love” during her time in the ‘Boot Camp’ Mansion. Still, though, Andrew wanted to date her, and in his social media comments, he explained why.

Andrew argued that he didn’t see everything that was filmed for the show and, even if he had, he said her antics could have just been for the camera.

“I only saw her interviews while working that show,” he explained. “But even if I did see the other stuff, is it real? Is it for camera? You can’t really tell. I’m a firm believer of people being able to change, I have. Wasn’t easy. I’m still trying to evolve. If true love sparkles at you, you must give love a chance. You must.”

My reaction to hearing about Amber and Andrew’s “true love sparkles.”

Another commenter mentioned the accusations Amber has thrown around, including her claims that Andrew cheated on her by texting other women as well as a post she shared about drunk driving in which she claimed she had “been quiet to protect people.”

Amber’s now deleted post…

The commenter on Andrew’s post went on to commend him for how he was handling the situation with Amber, while Andrew again denied the accusations being thrown his way.

“If [Amber’s] accusations were true I’d be dead long ago… does she strike you as the person who’d put up with that type of sh*t for a second? HA! No f’n way,” Andrew replied.

Less than a week ago, Andrew said in an interview that Amber “needs help and the sooner she acknowledges that, the healthier and happier she will be.”

    OMG! Isn’t it hilarious that Amber is so damn lazy she goes from the couch to the bed and now she is sitting on a stuffed sloth in the picture? Anyway, on to the story. Andrew knew Amber was a nut case. She has always been violent and volatile. So he decides to bring a baby into the mix? He can try to justify, and deny that he knew all he wants, we know Amber has been the same hood rat since she was with Gary. People like her don’t change, they only get worse. Andrew wanted to join her on her lazy couch and make the second indent, that’s what goes along with being in Ambers world.

  2. Andrew very well knew what he was getting into. Amber has been volatile, violent, and classless from day one. People like these don’t change for anyone. The only love 💕 he saw sparkling, was the love of 💴 money. This way his lazy ass wouldn’t have to work and they would happily put two indent marks on her famous lazy couch. He could try to deny it all he wants, I won’t believe him. Now he has this poor child in the mix , who has already been endangered, but will have to live with an absent mother. His mother hasn’t got sense enough to act like a decent human being. She has to through life acting like a damn caveman!

    1. I will ALWAYS have your back @PERRY (as well as anyone who speaks with common sense and decency). Whether I fully agree or not.

  3. Bruja, I must admit, I like and enjoy your writing style. You make me chuckle, even if it’s at my expense or when you disagree with me which is always.

    1. Thanks. I think we all come here for a little comic relief. I’m happy to put a smile on someones face, though I’d prefer to do it without a battle. 🤗

      I get where you’re coming from, I honestly do, and while I don’t agree with everything you say, I can say that at the end of the day, Andrew and Amber both need to stop and take the kids into consideration and stop worrying about the court of public opinion.

      What we think won’t matter in 10-15-20 years. What Leah and James think will.

      1. Bruja, sorry I am now just responding.

        Thank you for your kindness, it means a lot. I’m not expecting us to become friends but at least there is some level of respect there and I appreciate that.

        I don’t expect you to back down from your opinion and I know you don’t expect me to back down from mine. Hey, we can still do a level of shit talkin to each other, without being real nasty (and there hasn’t been a time yet where I felt you really nasty to me) to each other and still respect each other at the same time , at least, that’s how I feel. I think it’s all in good fun 🙂

        1. I don’t see why we have to shit talk AT ALL??? They (Amber and Andrew) were BOTH wrong at different levels. I just don’t see why we can’t acknowledge this and go on. But instead, people insist on putting the blame on one and not the other!!!!

  4. I feel bad for Amber. But if he knows she has those outburst he needs to be quiet and just listen when she’s feeling that way. He seems like a really nice guy she even admits that. But everyone knows that when you’re upset just leave them alone especially if they’re bipolar. I hope things work out for them if he’s the right one for her. Unfortunately they have a baby together and hopefully they can work it out. But Amber you’re going to have to put you’re all into it. You’ve already lost one child don’t lose another. Work it out Amber I really know you can I see your potential and everything. I see you’re a great mom always looking for Leah and waiting for her I see your pain.God bless you and I will pray for you Amber I truly hope that you can work things out with this man.

    TV is glamorizing mental illness how r these women and stupid men getting into relationships with sick women and getting them pregnant doesn’t make sense

  6. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “trash”. Reason: Failed GASP Bot Filter Test (checkbox) *]
    Amber you got this! Im routing for you. I totally understand what you’re going through with the loss of a child of custody and your mental illness. We both have the same thing. Its hard i know. I love you and dont give up faith or hope. Your a great mom and woman. Dont forget that.

  7. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “trash”. Reason: Failed GASP Bot Filter Test (comment token failure) *]
    Amber stay strong. You got this. Your a good mom and woman. I believe in you! We have alot in common when it comes to mental illness and loai g custoday of a child. You are one of my favorite people on the show. I understand you completely. I love you and dont give up faith and hope. My prayers are with you.

  8. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “trash”. Reason: Failed GASP Bot Filter Test (comment token failure) *]
    I felt in my heart that Andrew was only using Amber and wanted to further his non existing career. Andtew was never into her and it show throughout the show.

  9. Andrew wet his sausage with Amber before they left marriage boot camp. Don’t even try saying he took this relationship seriously. Amber got pregnant right away. I think he was stuck. He wanted to be there for James.

    1. Here you go, sticking up for Andrew again because he can do no wrong intentionally. Andrew was in his 30’s when he met Amber and managed not to have one single child before he met her, and then bam, what was it, like 3 months into knowing her, she pregnant? You can’t tell me that shiz wasn’t intentional on his part. Nice try though.

      1. Lawls, and here you go again, sticking up for Andrew under your 900th name! 😂

        *says in her best impression of Jace* “ANODDER ONE?!” Lets see, we have Staci, Monroe, Lisa, Olivia, Moya and now Perry? 🤪

        Unless I’m mistaken and he can somehow trigger spontaneous ovulation like a Taltos out of an Anne Rice novel, Andrew wasn’t the only one responsible for Ambien‘s pregnancy. Oh, btw, she’s 29 (he’s 35- not much of an age difference there) and it wasn’t even a month, let alone 3 months.

        You are fucking mental. 🤪😂

          1. You do know I’m speaking to “Perry”, not you, right?

            Though I’m happy to oblige you, if you wish. (!!!) lol

          2. Well, now you’re talking to me (ya little bitch). And yes, “it takes two to tango” as the saying goes. But Andrew knew how Amber is, so in he got himself into this mess!! He should have known better.

            Nobody is defending Amber. Certain people are just saying that he is just as guilty as she is!!!

          3. Bruja, who the hell said anything about age difference??? That has nothing to do with the fact that this GUY, unlike Amber, was able to be child free for for the first what, 33 years of his life and all the sudden bam, he gets a woman pregnant? I highly DOUBT that it was an “accident” on his part, And damn, it wasn’t 3 months, it was 3 weeks????? Proves my point even more 🙂 Thanks for the correction! I LOVE THESE kind of corrections.

          4. Hannah-

            You’re that sloppy person with the “sister” Lillian, right? The one that was doing all the back and forth about how you wear your hearts on your sleeves in the article, ‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Amber Portwood Tells Fans “Remember Who I Am Not What You Hear,” While Andrew Glennon Insists He Did Not Setup Amber and that “we snap at people”

            So- are you Smeagol or Gollum? Either way, you DEFINITELY have a few broken toys in the attic. I’ll take being a bitch over whatever ails you any day, all day. 😂

            I don’t think you get what is being said. All “Perry” has done, as have her various personalities (something you 2 can bond over) is defend Ambien.

            They are both at fault for this mess, but still, no one deserves to be hit or in fear of their life… and no, I don’t throw my fucking shoes at people. That shit isn’t normal.

            Here, have a Precious and shut the fuck up. 💍

          5. Hannah, I just want to say, thank you for having my back. I much appreciate it and know that I have yours as well.

        1. *Correction – Not defending Andrew again, defending Amber again.

          They are both responsible for the side-show this has become, but lets be clear, Amber abused Andrew, and there is no excuse for that.

          Yeah, he likely knew her history and he’s a shmuck for pursuing her when he did, but Amber is a big girl and apparently, a cheater too if she was with Matt when she started in with Andrew. Either way, James is here now and needs BOTH parents to not act bat-shit crazy.

          There is no excuse for physical violence. None. Ever. Period.

          1. “There is no excuse for physical violence. None. Ever. Period.”

            Oh shut up. She hit him with a shoe. I’m sure the shoe was hurt way more than he was. You know how many women have thrown shoes at their boyfriends/husbands? Lmfao. Give me a fuckin break…… PLEASE….. And before you throw up the “machete” its his word against hers about that and she’s innocent until proven guilty. Obviously no one was harmed with a machete, so there’s that.

            And who cares if she cheated. Matt annihilated his relationship with Amber by that point, he lied to her so bad oh my God and didn’t he cheat on her too? That relationship was done because of his crazy lies. In any case, no matter what she did, it doesn’t negate what Andrew did. At all. He persued a woman in such a deep and crazy relationship that this joker pretends he knew nothing about! Of course he knew how stupid, troubled and gullible Amber was, and not only did he know, he was counting on it!!! True love sparkles my ass.

          2. I’m convinced that you’re mentally challenged, “Perry”. Hi. When you hit someone, with ANYTHING, in anger, That. Is. Called. Physical. Abuse. You. Raging. Fucking. Moron.

            However, she took that shit up a notch and then grabbed a deadly weapon, a machete, and used it to try to bust in a door. A door her baby was behind, likely crying in fear at what was happening. It doesn’t matter if anyone was hurt, again, you blithering dolt, you can’t threaten people with a weapon and there not be consequences. Hi, in case it’s escaped the attention of your wee, pea sized brain, a machete is a weapon.

            Didn’t you say, “The mere fact that he would persue a taken woman shows you what a sleeze bag he is.”

            Sure, Andrew is a sleaze, I’ve said it before- mainly because no one in their right mind with great intentions is looking at a mentally insane person who is also relapsing on drugs and going, “yum, she looks F.I.N.E. and she is M.I.N.E.” but Amber isn’t only nuts with a history of being violent, but now she’s a whore, after all, she was the one who was with someone when she decided to hook up with Andrew. 🤷🏽‍♀️

            You seem determined to drop every issue at Andrew’s door and no matter how much you worship yourse..I mean, Amber, you have to realize that she is responsible for her own actions, and being physically abusive is a major one, one that she has been convicted of before.

            Maybe when we all see the pictures of the door, you’ll shut your pie hole about this “alleged” machete incident having never taken place.

          3. Uh oh! Hannah is getting ready to go all Gollum on me! She wants me to fuck off! Oh no! 😱

            That’s cute that you and Sybil have each others backs though. Now you can be psycho together. 🤪🤣

          4. Bruja
            I think Perry and Lilian are one and the same.

            I prefer your honesty in your comments.
            And not the hypocrisy of the two people your referring too.

        2. Bruja- I appreciate your valiant efforts at talking some sense into these…two? (Or four, or eight, or however many of them there are.) I’m in complete agreement that Andrew seems like kind of a douche (I mean, who sees Ambo and has a sparkly lovestruck moment, amIright?) But she’s still in the wrong. It blows my mind that anyone could doubt that she did every single thing he says she did. (And then some.) Not just because of her history of DV, but good God, I ALMOST feel sorry for the man watching her berate him for daring to speak week after week. She’s a bully, plain and simple. And like most bullies, she doesnt go after people who might put her real-woman ass in her place, but baby daddies and the like who would quickly fo to GEL for defending themselves. Andrew outsmarted her (not hard to do) and it’s driving her bat shit. She has nowhere to go other than to basically say “he made me hit him.” Which is also not smart, but ya know…she did make her fortune from a show called “Teen Mom” so our Ambo ain’t the brightest bulb anyway…

          1. hahahaha! I’m starting to lose count myself. 🤣

            I agree 1000% with what you just said. I think Andrew definitely has issues, he’d almost have to in order to even deal with Amber willingly.

            You’re spot on, EB.

          2. “Birds Of A Feather Flock Together” ain’t that right EB and BRUJA (DUMBFUCK LOSERS)!!!!

          3. Umm, yeah, Gollum/Smeagol. That’s it. Sure thing, you honey roasted nut. 🥜 🤣 🤪

            Back away from the keyboard, your crazy is on full display.

          4. @Hannah- oh hell yes. If we’re picking flocks here, I’ll take the sane, well-spoken, clever, funny Bruja to represent my pack leader. I mean, easy choice👍 No offense, but multiple identities and crazed emotional (often very personal and irrelevant) outbursts frighten me. Youre bird flock is scary Hannah. Go to your room and think about what you’ve done young lady.

            Thanks for the laughs Bruja😂😂😂

          5. Aww, thank you, EB. That was super sweet of you. I think quite highly of you as well. *hugs* I’m glad to be on your team! 🤗 💖

            I don’t think we’re cheer-leading all on Team Andrew here. Admittedly, the guy has issues and I do think he’s instigating things with Amber at this point with all the media back and forth.. BUT I think Amber pushed his last button when she went after him while holding the baby. Admittedly, that’d trigger me too.

            They both need to step back and think about that baby though. While Amber is a monster for abusing Andrew, he is a monster for putting a mentally ill woman in the position of being a mother again when she clearly wasn’t ready to even be a mother to the one child she already had.

          6. I totally agree Bruja. (And of course! I enjoy all your fun/funny comments on here😉) I think Andrew def had some sort of ulterior motives, and he seriously needs to shut up now. It’s beyond immature the way they keep posting publicly about the whole ordeal. Have some f-ing dignity you two. It’s terrible behavior for two people who share a child, and very sad for the baby.

          7. So much this, EB. You said it beautifully.

            I want to have some empathy for Andrew, I really do, but he is workin’ my last sympathy nerve with the way he can’t stop running to either the media or social media to air their private business to the world.

            Personally, I’d be okay with folks thinking I’m a giant weanie, if it meant my child wouldn’t see his/her parents bashing each other. The media will get a hold of court records with or without his cooperation and the truth will get out. He doesn’t need to keep trying to prove his side of the story.

            I think he’s telling the truth, fwiw. I think Amber needs to do some in-patient therapy, not at one of those day spa resorts she’s been to before, or that Catelynn attended in Arizona, but some hard-core program where she’ll have to either get her shit together, or crash and burn hitting rock bottom and losing everything she has left. Maybe if she was faced with having to live like normal folks who don’t have an education, instead of making 300k a year for slothing, it’d do her a world of good.

            Hodor needs to go back to California, start working again and making a life for himself and James independent of Amber. Yeah, he should expect child support/healthcare assistance, but right now, the important thing is giving that boy a stable life, out of the eye of public and far away from Amber’s batty ass family.

      2. “Perry”

        You said, “Andrew was in his 30’s when he met Amber and managed not to have one single child before he met her, and then bam”..

        All that means is that he was likely with women who were responsible about their reproductive health, and clearly, Amber is not, so if they’re both being irresponsible, a child is going to be the result. Neither of them are kids that can drop “fault” at the feet of the either one. Again, it takes 2 irresponsible idiots. Andrew for not using a condom (ugh, after Matt having been there, that thought is plain terrifying) AND Amber for seemingly never taking it ever.

        And yes, it was under a month. They’re both a hot mess here.

        1. “All that means is that he was likely with women who were responsible about their reproductive health”

          Yeah, very likely Come on Bruja, I know you don’t even believe that no matter what you say. You and I both know he purposely knocked her up. But you will keep denying it no matter what.

          1. No, I don’t think he did. Do I think he’s an idiot? ABSOLUTELY, but I think he was hoping to ride the gravy train without a kid, just like Matt did for years.

  10. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “trash”. Reason: Failed GASP Bot Filter Test (comment token failure) *]
    She is a lazy disgusting person that calls herself a mom, she needs to get off her fat ass and be a productive person, everytine you see Amber, she is either laying in bed, on the couch or riding in a car, shes always jyst gonna be a victim, and cries at the drop of a dime, she thinks shes such a hard bad ass, but she cries all the time, grow up!

  11. Maybe he was hard up, and he was just willing to take a shot with her, even though he saw what mess she was. He probably didn’t have a lot of suitors. I think James is lucky he has Andrew, If he only had Amber, his future would have been very problematic.

    1. You’re telling me there was no other women out there that he could have? He HAD to persue Amber? Someone who was OBVIOUSLY in a long term serious relationship, engaged to be married! Forget about everything else, like he didn’t have access to google for one google search of her past that would clearly show everything in an instant, forget about all of that. The mere fact that he would persue a taken woman shows you what a sleeze bag he is.

      1. Amber and Matt’s relationship was already over when they appeared on Marriage Boot Camp; they appeared on the show for money. Matt bilked Amber out of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars. They both needed the cash.

        By the way, because it’s driving me nuts: It’s pursue – not “persue”.

      2. Outside of them asking him to cosplay Hodor or Rubeus Hagrid for an upcoming Comic-Con, nah. I don’t think women are pounding down his door. 👀

  12. Lol “date”… Can we call it what it was… A one night stand that resulted in a pregnancy. That is all. She was pregnant in less than a month!!! Andrew only want it to “hit it and quit it” that is all. But he did good by Amber and baby James and I applaud him for it. He stepped up to take care of them both. It’s a shame that Amber sabotaged a good relationship.

    1. Amber is so lucky that both of the men that fathered her children are involved, stable fathers. Both of those babies would have ended up in foster care if they weren’t. At least Leah and James have one parent that puts them first, unlike Amber who is much more concerned with herself and whatever dick she’s riding.

        1. Allow me to clarify what I meant by the previous comment. No, I don’t wish for a child to be ripped away from their parents and placed with complete strangers. But I also don’t wish that a child be caught between their parent’s squabbles. Fortunately (thanks to Kristina) things have calmed down between Gary and Amber. But unless a divine intervention changes things between Andrew and Amber, I don’t see that situation EVER being civilized. A child needs TWO parents that love and care for/about him or her.

  13. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “trash”. Reason: Failed GASP Bot Filter Test (comment token failure) *]
    He knew that she had a nice house,nice card. He’s been driving her Range Rover and laying around in her nice suburban home. He knows she makes good money off the teen mom series. He didn’t care that she’s mentally unstable but he knew about her past. Give me a break!!!He is with her just like Matt was. To be on TV and more clout!!!

  14. He wanted her true sparkly money. Period and now he’s working over time for public adoration. He is a very strange man.

  15. Love sparkles? Well the last time he saw “love sparkles” aka fireworks, he got chased around the house with a machete.

    WTF does he mean he didn’t know if it was real, or just for the cameras?? Ummmm is PRISON real enough for you? Is being a convicted FELON real enough for you?? He just needs to stop talking LOL.

      1. Being a felon isn’t illegal. But doing something ILLEGAL makes you a FELON!!! But being a felon himself, he should know that it is illegal to associate with fellow felons!!!

        1. Being convicted of a felony makes you a felon. People do illegal things all the time, doesn’t make them felons.

          1. That is true!! But, the bigger the crime=the bigger the charge. That was all I was saying.

  16. I call bs, you could probably hear her screaming from a mile away. She screamed constantly. None of the crew talked about Amber’ s behaviors? You didn’t take the time to Google her? How people act on camera “sober” is not far off from how they usually are.

  17. OMG I almost spit out my coffee (in disgust) when I saw the “true love sparkles”!

    I can’t disagree with people though that Andrew either knew or should have known what he was getting into. Even if he only saw her Boot Camp interviews, Amber has been on TV for many years and it’s common knowledge that she went to “gel.” As soon as he felt those “sparkles” he probably should have opened up the Google machine to do some investigating. Does he deserve what Amber did to him? Absolutely not. But he can’t act like he didn’t have some idea of what she was capable of.
