Amber is known to be an ‘OG’ star of ‘Teen Mom’. It’s not only because she’s a cast member of ‘Teen Mom: OG’, it’s also because she starred in ’16 & Pregnant’.
Therefore the ‘OG’ as in ‘original girl’.
Amber’s life has been on display for more than a decade, but not all things are revealed on television.
#1 She was forced to reveal her ‘Teen Mom’ income
It’s a known fact that MTV compensates its stars for making appearances on the show. What isn’t publicly known is the exact salary the cast receives.
Amber was the only ‘Teen Mom’ cast member whose salary was exposed to the public eye. It all happened back in 2010 when Amber was forced to reveal salary information and at the time she reported making $140,000 per 6 months period or $280,000 per year.
#2 She was offered a role in an adult movie
Amber was offered to be a star for an adult movie film by Vivid, a company that specializes in internet content.
The money offered for the role wasn’t negligible, it was reportedly an offer worth $500,000.
Of course, Portwood turned the offer down and nothing was made out of it.
#3 She wasn’t capable of filming without help
Reportedly, in the early days of ‘Teen Mom’, Amber wasn’t ready to film if there wasn’t any ‘booze’ around.
After a while, she turned her life around and stopped drinking for good.
#4 Her relationship with her daughter
The 29-year-old mom has a way of things with her daughter and it really shows. “I’m going to give you your space. You let me know baby girl,” Amber said of discussing things about her past with daughter Leah.
The two are inseparable and often post goofy photos on social media.
#5 She invests in Real Estate
Portwood is apparently being smart with her money and occasionally invests in real estate. It’s been reported that this is Amber’s way of making side income besides the MTV gig.
