On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, the mother of two made an apology to say sorry for all of her mistakes in the past.

In a clip from Tuesday’s new showing, Amber, who admitted she hadn’t seen her daughter in months, revealed Leah watched the video but didn’t want to send a reply.

Amber narrated the clip: “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 ex Gary Shirley.

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.”

With the apology, Amber hoped “they would see the raw emotion of a human being that is pouring their heart out.” 

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.”

Back over at Gary’s house, he discussed the whole situation to his wife, Kristina, and shared that he let Amber know that Leah had watched her video but “didn’t want to respond.”

He said it seemed like for Leah there were just too many things for her mom to apologize for and it wasn’t easy for her to just forget it all.

Gary said, though, that for him, “it’s a start,” while Kristina added: “I’ve forgiven her for the things that she has said, and there just comes a time when we move forward.”

In a recent episode, Leah was seen watching the video and said to her dad 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.”

Back in August, Amber told The Sun that she has reconciled with Gary and Kristina after she accused them of not helping mend her relationship with Leah. 

The Teen Mom OG star said: “Me, Gary, and Kristina, are doing amazing actually. We literally just went to a fair, all of us together, the whole family.

“We are in a much better spot than we were. We are doing good and we are in contact. I see my kids so obviously I have to see them.”
