Amber Portwood & Gary Shirley Are Playing Nice for Now

Amber PortwoodWhen I heard that Amber Portwood had been released early from prison because of her good behavior, I was skeptical. I was also totally impressed. When I think of someone behaving well, she doesn't usually flash across my radar as a stellar example. What could have caused her change of heart? Maybe the prison food has mellowed her.

Of course I was holding my breath and waiting for the woman to snap. But that is only because I really, really want a Teen Mom and Snapped cross-over episode. Obviously it should go without saying that this in no way means I wish anybody to be murdered for my own amusement, clear? All that said, color me impressed (and chagrined) to announce that a cross-over doesn't seem likely. Amber's changed her stripes for good, or so it would seem. She's even WILLINGLY HANGING OUT WITH GARY SHIRLEY.


More from The Stir: Amber Portwood Is Clean & Sober ... For Now

It seems like our favorite pair of completely destructive garbage people have rallied in the name of baby girl Leah. True story! Gary was recently pictured taking the little lady off to school like a good dad. (Sidebar: Leah looks like an adorable clone of her mother.) It's almost like all those rough and rocky days with his former one-true-love Amber are well and truly behind him.

More proof that they're putting Leah first? The totally-not-a-couple was photographed leaving a restaurant together with Leah in tow. And no one was bleeding! I'm not saying that I think they're back together -- in fact, they were both super clear that there's no way in sweet hell that's ever happening -- but they were being ... civil. WHO ARE YOU GUYS AND WHERE ARE GARY AND AMBER? Amber seems to have really made a change for the good in her life. Viva la constructive co-parenting.

Do you think all this good behavior on Amber's part will last?
