We're counting down the days until OG Teen Mom star Amber Portwood returns to our small screens in her one-hour MTV special, Being Amber, on February 23. It's been a while since we've seen Amber in action (she spent 17 months at the Rockville Correctional Facility in Indiana after opting out of court-ordered drug rehab), and one of our biggest questions is about the current state of her relationship with baby daddy Gary Shirley.
Before Amber's stint in the slammer, Gary and Amber were on shaky ground — as you may recall from Teen Mom, their constant fighting is what got Amber in trouble with the law in the first place. But according to this exclusive sneak peek clip from Sunday's night's special, Amber and Gary were planning to work things out and get back together after Amber's release! We know, bombshell.
"The s—t that you said when I was in [jail], you said, 'It's not over yet. Amber I love you,'" Amber reveals after meeting Gary's new girlfriend at Leah's birthday party.
Gary recalls the conversation a little differently, though. "I said, 'You never know what might happen,'" he clarifies.
Semantics aside, Amber feels like Gary led her on — and she's not happy about it. "Don't say that to me. I need to get over you. You're not giving me closure when you say things like that," Amber points out.
Gary eventually apologizes for "playing her," and admits letting go hasn't been easy for him either. But at the end of the day, he feels like he's in a better place mentally.
While Amber understands how toxic their relationship is, she still can't seem to move on. "I hate that it turned out this way, but I love you. And since I was 15 it's only been you and me," she says. "I'm not over it and I don't think I will be for a while. And it hurts my feelings. Let me try to get over you."
Poor Amber. She just can't resist Gary's studly charm. And to think, she probably hasn't even seen his melons yet!
But in all seriousness, we can't help but sympathize with this girl — though we haven't lost hope for a reconciliation. Do you think Amber and Gary will ever get back together? Tell us below and tune in Sunday night, February 23, at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
