Amber Portwood isn’t giving too much away ahead of Teen Mom OG‘s August 22nd premiere, but she did reveal that she and fiance Matt Baier are pumping the breaks on wedding planning.
Last season, Baier’s sordid past was brought up, and it was messy AF. The 44-year-old reportedly has seven children, all of whom he’s failed to pay child support for.
While Baier claimed earlier this year that Portwood “knew everything” about his past relationships, it’s certainly taken its toll on theirs. So much so, in fact, that Portwood confirmed that their October nuptials would not be happened.
“Everything got thrown on the back burner when stuff happened,” Portwood told People Magazine, “but you’ll see us working through certain things together and you’ll see us talking about marriage and what we’re going to do.”
“You see us take a back burner this season, honestly,” she continued. “There’s been so much talk about me and Matt the last season that we kind of stay a little private, but it’s hard to stay private when everything is out in the open.”
Portwood has stood by her man, telling fans on social media that she’s aware of his past indiscretions.
Or so we thought.
“Honestly, I tried to stay neutral in the whole situation because I didn’t know what was going on yet,” Portwood admitted.
“I didn’t know what the truth was. I didn’t want to make a rash decision on something that everyone else was saying. You will see in this season me making my decision on what I was going to do with me and Matt.”
Portwood did not mention where she and Baier stand now, but she is doing something about social media.
[This season] you’ll see us talking about everything in the media and getting the truth out there, and we’re actually about to go to the Dr. Drew show to talk about online bullying,” Portwood tease.
Teen Mom OG returns August 22nd at 9 p.m. on MTV.
