Teen Mom Cast: Amber Portwood “Hopes That Girls Learn From Her Mistakes”
With the final season of Teen Mom premiering June 12, the cast has been making the media rounds to bid a bittersweet farewell. Except, of course, Amber Portwood, who is currently behind bars.
Amber quit her rehab program and could face five years in prison. Her fellow castmates — Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, and Maci Bookout — have said they wish "nothing but the best" for Amber.
They also wish the media and viewers would be a little easier on the troubled Teen Mom.
"“People just need to support her and stop bashing her all the time," Catelynn told E! Online.
"I don’t understand how people can get better if you have people throwing your past in your face all the time."
While they acknowledge that life will be difficult for Leah Shirley, if her mom is not around, the Teen Moms believe Amber's situation can help other young women.
"Amber has told me before that she hopes that girls learn from her mistakes," Catelynm said.
