Amber Portwood had made headlines for the domestic violence claims that were made against her by her ex-boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. Since then, Amber had been making visits to the court and the girls decided to stand by her side with the hopes of being her strength in this hard time. 

However, the latest episode (April 7) of 'Teen Mom OG' saw the cast members coming across a recording o Amber. The audio here was the infamous audio that made headlines and used as one hard evidence for domestic violence claims. After hearing the tape, Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra confessed that they were shocked and did not expect to hear this. 

When the producer asked Catelynn how she felt, she confessed that hearing the video she also felt a sudden sadness take over her as she remembered what happened with her as a child. She recalled the incident where she was the one taking stand whenever her mother had a fight with her boyfriend. 

Ctaelynn confessed that even though she felt bad about what had happened, she did not want to be a savior or a caregiver. She stated that she has spent a lot of her time worrying about others and in a bid to save them, she has lost herself. To make sure that does not happen, she decided to maintain her distance when it came to helping Amber. 


Even though she wanted to be there for her, she wondered what would be the best way to do it without hurting herself. She decided to visit her therapist and have a conversation about it. She explained that sudden sadness took over her and it made her think of all the times when she has heard arguments like that and felt helpless. 

She confessed she wanted to be there for Amber and try to help her in any way she can. Later in the episode, Cateynn reflected how she was receiving backlash for supporting Amber at the court. Catelynn admitted that she did not think she did anything wrong as she felt that Amber needed a friend beside her at that moment. 


She hoped people would understand why she did what she did, but regardless of these thoughts, she knew she could not let Amber hanging alone. 

'Teen Mom OG' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET on MTV.
