In my TMOG recap last week, I said there is no low too low for Amber Portwood’s disgusting fiancé Matt Baier. Well, it looks like he’s been busy proving me right.
First, E! News broke a story about Amber and Matt were negotiating a deal on a sex tape with porn giant Vivid Entertainment. Claiming that no decision has been made, yet, Amber said that she is considering the deal cuz she’s a “business woman” and it could make millions that she could use to open rehab centers all over the world. I’m simultaneously snorting with laughter and feeling nauseated by this statement. Matt confirmed that there was an offer on the table for $85 K plus 30% of the future revenues. This flies in the face of all the shit-talking from the TMOGs that resulted from Farrah’s foray into porn. Matt’s response to questions about this was that it’s totally different because Vivid approached them, whereas Farrah had to make her sex tape first, then shop it for a deal. WTF kind of logic is this?
This is horrible on so many levels. Consider Leah, Amber’s 8-year-old daughter who has grown up on camera her whole life. She has already endured more than any kid should. Her mom assaulted her dad, had a very public drug problem, went to prison and now she’s struggling with mental health issues and hooked up with this despicable human. Should Leah really have to go to school and explain how mommy did porn to her third-grade class? This kid has already drawn the short straw in the genetics lottery, with obesity, addiction and mental illness to contend with. If Amber goes through with this sex tape, she may as well just start fucking drafting contracts for Teen Mom: The Next Generation in 8 years and plan to broker Leah’s own deal with Vivid as soon as she turns 18.
Now let’s talk about Matt. This guy is a predator, plain and simple. He tweeted all the Teen Moms until he found the most damaged, deranged one with zero self-esteem and then went to work. He doesn’t love her, he’s been manipulating her since day one. He’s an addict turned fame whore who thrives on chaos and is incapable of monogamy. Lying is not an occasional thing with this guy, it’s a lifestyle. How else do you explain like, 10 kids with seven different women?
To top it off, I don’t believe he’s ever been completely sober. That’s right, I’m going full Rinna on this fool. In his first appearance, he claimed to be in recovery. He said that bonded he and Amber. But, weeks later, he was blatantly drinking beer on camera. I have nothing against people consuming alcohol, you just don’t do it when you’re sober. Plus, Amber’s drinking now!
I’m not a doctor, but common sense tells me that (past addiction issues aside) if her mental health is so precarious that she has to take medications that could compromise a pregnancy, she shouldn’t be boozing. The idea that these two aspire to start a rehab empire is ridiculous. Remind me again how drinking alcohol is part of life in recovery? I must have missed that step.
Crazy Text Messages
A few days after the sex tape negotiations hit the news, an anonymous LA-based blogger from CDAN called @entylawyer started revealing a bunch of Matt and Amber’s texts. Remember Amber’s brother, Sean AKA “Bubby” (retch)? You know the one Matt disparaged and accused Amber of wanting to marry on the last episode? Well, according to this Enty’s posts, Sean pays for Amber and Matt’s phones! He has released about a million creepy texts. If you have about 40 minutes to spare, check out this guy’s Twitter, where he is posting legit seeming screen-shots of the messages.
The highlights include sexts between Matt and his side chick, depressing messages between Amber and producers and messages that reveal what Sean and his wife really think about Matt. The messages will have you fascinated/horrified. From what I could piece together, Matt had a hot and heavy text relationship with a chick named Tiffany who lives in Vegas. He planned to meet up with her in a “dark corner” for some sexy time (the actual texts are waay more explicit) while he was there with Amber. Shudder, shudder, shudder. Apparently Matt passed all of his recent polygraphs about the cheating—except the ones about Tiffany.
Another thread seems to imply that, in the midst of a fight, Matt assaulted or harmed Amber in some way this past Valentine’s Day weekend. Amber sends a mysterious and horrifying voice memo to producer Kiki, then begs for forgiveness, saying she feels like she ruined the show. I may just be tired, but it’s all very difficult to follow. But it’s definitely not good. If anybody can do a better job of interpreting this batch, please comment below and enlighten us. The main thing that has me confused is the implication that this incident was instrumental in Kiki getting fired. I thought the producer everybody was speculating about Amber getting fired was Heather, not Kiki. Did they both get the ax?
Editors Note: Please see comment by commenter TAMARA (not me, another one) who verifies it was Heather who was fired not Kiki.
The final item of interest here (for now, he promises to post more) is that Sean’s own children are not allowed around Matt. Texts from his wife reveal that they feel like Matt is a huge liar, dragging Amber down and they don’t trust him. She even implies that Leah may not be safe with him, which is something that has always been in the back of my mind. I don’t feel like anybody is safe with this asshole. We’ve seen him basically order a female producer to blow somebody (see the caption on above pic), where does it stop? I know Amber is an adult, but I think Matt has taken advantage of the fact she is emotionally needy and mentally unstable. Maybe she’s afraid of being irrelevant if she gets too healthy (they all are) or just too stupid to realize she’s being victimized. So, basically Amber’s family feels the same way most of us do about this guy. That’s gonna make the wedding a hassle, right? Let’s just hope it never gets that far…
