Tonya & Amber Portwood, 'Teen Mom'Some wounds are apparently still too raw, and clearly Amber Portwood has yet to work through her emotions about the death of her sister. On the 'Teen Mom' (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV) special, Dr. Drew brought the tragedy up again as a talking point.

He'd tried before to talk to Amber about it, but she wasn't able to, so instead he tried to get her mother Tonya to open up a little about the incident that happened when Amber was six years old on the reunion show.

But when Tonya started telling the story about how she found her daughter's body in her crib, Amber was so overwhelmed with emotion that she walked off the stage, where we could hear her crying.

Amber Portwood, 'Teen Mom'On 'Teen Mom' (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV), Amber Portwood is something of a hot mess. She has some serious anger issues, and can mix them with an unhealthy dose of denial as well.

While Gary was smug and insensitive to the fact that Amber is at risk of losing custody of their daughter, he was right in saying, "Nothing I did should ever provoke you enough to hit me."

In fact, we were flabbergasted when Amber said, "Yeah, everything is my fault for hitting you. But the thing is, Gary, what provoked those situations?" Yup, Amber's blaming him for her lack of self control.

Does 'Teen Mom' Exploit Vulnerable Girls?

by PopEater Staff, posted Mar 30th 2011 5:20AM
Amber Portwood and Jenelle EvansAfter yet another scandal broke this past weekend involving a 'Teen Mom' star, experts are asking whether appearing on the show makes the girls more unstable.

'Teen Mom 2' star Jenelle Evans was arrested for assault after a video surfaced of her brutally beating another teen. She's also been charged with drug possession and breaking and entering.

Her fellow 'Teen Mom,' Amber Portwood, was arrested in December and spent 24 hours in jail on charges of attacking her baby daddy in front of their two-year-old daughter.

Now experts are raising the question of whether 'Teen Mom' is to blame for taking obviously unstable teenagers and thrusting them into a spotlight they are not ready to handle.

"These are not the most stable girls to begin [with]," says clinical psychologist and HealthGuru.com contributor Jeffrey Gardere. "They have a lot of issues and stresses from being teenagers who are pregnant, and now they are in the public eye. Some of them are making a lot of money, and that is a stress in itself, which can cause some real behavioral issues."
