TEEN Mom star Amber Portwood has admitted she’s “been bisexual” in a teaser for an upcoming episode for the MTV show.
The reality TV favourite made the admission to her mom Tonya as they FaceTimed one another in the preview clip shared to Twitter.
Amber, 31, could be heard talking to her mom about her sexuality in a teaser clip for the upcoming episode on October 12.
I have been bisexual,” she opens up in the first snippet, later following up: “I was going to go to the grave with this.”
It’s the first time that the mother-of-two has opened up about her sexuality on the show, despite making references to her preferences in 2014.
During the ‘Ask The Moms’ special, she was asked about her craziest experience in prison – which she wouldn’t tell as it was too scandalous.
But she hinted it involved a sexual experience with a woman as she detailed what happens on shows like Orange Is The New Black is “so true”.
Die-hard Teen Mom fans may also remember that in 2012, rumors circulated that Amber had become “special friends” with a woman.
The story, circulated by Radar Online, detailed the pair as being “so close” as the woman, nicknamed “Sugarfoot”, had Amber’s initials tattooed on her.
Despite this, over the years Amber has been seen in relationships with exclusively men, inlcuding Gary Shirley, Andrew Glennon and Matt Baier.
Earlier this week, Teen Mom OG star Gary slammed his baby mama Amber as he admitted he wants to be “done” with her after their daughter Leah, 12, refused to talk to her.
During Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Gary spoke to his wife Kristina about his strained relationship with Amber.
The MTV star told his wife: “Just because we apologized to each other and get everything out of the way, it doesn’t mean that Leah’s relationship is gonna be alternately fixed.
“Leah might still need time. I know if we’re all getting along, it will make it easier for Leah.”
After Kristina suggested they try to make up with Amber, Gary responded: “My biggest fear is we’re gonna fix this and it’s a matter of time because if her relationship isn’t repaired with Leah, it’s gonna be like, ‘Okay, you’re still mad at everything and you’re gonna take it out on us.’
“Honestly, if I could have my way I would just be done with it but it’s not the case.”
Gary, 34, concluded: “We have a kid together and we need to make sure that kid’s happy and healthy.”
Later in the episode, Amber revealed the un-aired phone call went well and she shared her hopes for the meet up.
The Teen Mom star told her producer she “doesn’t give a f**k” if Leah “looks at me and rolls her eyes and goes upstairs” as long as they’re “still moving somewhere.”
Amber said Leah’s “in pain” over her past, though insisted: “I was there. I wasn’t the best – self medicating – but you can’t explain that to a kid.”
She then shared that she has high hopes for their meeting, stating: “As long as we move forward and everybody’s actually moving forward and it’s not for dumb reasons then I think we’ll be fine.”
The get together wasn’t aired, though Amber said it was “fine” but “a little awkward” for Leah.
During last week’s episode, Amber filmed a video apologizing to Leah for their strained relationship.
Leah was later seen watching the video and told Gary that she wasn’t ready to accept Amber’s apology after the Teen Mom OG star slammed her stepmother Kristina.
While Gary and Kristina explained that Amber’s mistakes shouldn’t define their relationship, the 12-year-old insisted: “I can’t love somebody who tries to hurt other people.”
Earlier in Tuesday’s episode, Amber opened up about not hearing back from Leah about the apology video.
She explained in a voiceover: “After months of not talking, Gary and I have started communicating via text, but I still want to speak to Leah and Kristina.”
She then told a producer that she’s “doing pretty f**king good” with her schooling but not too well when it comes to her daughter with Gary.
Getting emotional, the Teen Mom admitted: “I don’t know what to do anymore, I’m still trying, but it’s very unwelcoming, is all I can say.
“I sent a video apology, but I didn’t get a response.
“I got something from Gary that day saying that they watched it.”
She continued: “I just want my relationship with my daughter. She is losing time with her mom, and she’s not wanting time with her mom.”
