TEEN Mom Catelynn Lowell rushed to support her friend Amber Portwood after she was arrested for allegedly attacking her ex with a machete.
In a teaser clip for tomorrow night’s episode, Catelynn told husband Tyler Baltierra that she would go with Amber to her court appearance following her arrest.
Catelynn, 28, toldTyler, 28, that she texted Amber to see how she was doing and ask if she needed support.
Amber admitted in her text response, “I really need you guys.”
Tyler reacted in shock: “Wow, she really said that?”
Catelynn realized she needed to support her friend because “Amber doesn’t usually ask for help.”
“So that’s a sign,” she continued.
Standing in their huge kitchen, the couple also discussed how Amber had struggled with mental health issues in the past.
“I’m sure depression is kicking in because she’s probably she’s stressed or anxious or whatever,” Catelynn said.
Tyler replied: “She’s been dealing with that for awhile.”
Catelynn also helped Amber through her postpartum depression after she gave birth to her son, James.
The mom of two also called her other Teen Mom costars to get them to rally around Amber at court.
The court date in question was for the first hearing for her appeal to lift a protection order to let her see James.
Amber’s ex Andrew Glennon filed for emergency full and legal custody of their son, 1.
The 29-year-old was accused of hitting Andrew with a shoe while he held their son in July last year.
She’s also alleged to have hit a locked door with a machete while he and James were inside.
Amber accepted a plea deal over the incident and is on probation for three years.
As part of their court agreement, Andrew has primary custody of James, while they share joint legal custody.
Amber has three unsupervised visits a week with their son.
In the new series, Amber opened up to Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter Leah, 11.
She said: “It’s been one of the hardest times of my life!”
The reality star admitted to losing 35 lbs from stress and falling into a deep depression after the incident.
Catelynn will likely feel happy to be seen as a supportive friend after she got heat for “making money” off the coronavirus crisis with clickbait articles.
She posted a photo looking upset with Tyler on Instagram with the caption: “Coronavirus has struck. #LinkInBio.”
Fans were quick to slam Catelynn for the post, which has since been deleted.
One fan fired: “This is disgusting. No one should be using the Coronavirus for profit.”
