They say change is good, and apparently, there will be lots of it for Amber Portwood on the forthcoming season of Teen Mom OG. In a new interview with Us Weekly, the reality star detailed how transformative the past few months have been for her.
As fans may recall, in July 2019, Amber was arrested for domestic battery against then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon. The reality star allegedly threatened her baby daddy with a machete, though this is a claim she has since denied. As dramatic as the big night was, she says the incident incited a major change in her life.
"I really had to go through something terrible in order for me to kind of sit back and say, ‘Hey, this is what I need to work on,'" Amber explained. "'This is how I work on it. And no more excuses. It’s time to actually do the job and get it done — one by one and not putting too much on myself.'"
Amber continued, “I think that one thing that people are going to see within this next season is me just completely changing, in some aspects, of how I do things differently when it comes to my family and how I relate them back into my life. I feel like I had this very immature outlook on filling that void in my heart."
Mark your calendars, y'all, because a new season of Teen Mom OG starts March 17, and judging from the teasers, it's going to be one wild ride (per usual).
