Amber Portwood may have already made her final appearance on MTV.
The embattled reality star has not made any public statements in about two weeks, not since she was arrested on three felony counts of domestic assault after allegedly attacking boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
But numerous headlines of late have been screaming about the inevitable.
And that would be this:
Portwood will soon be fired from Teen Mom OG.
According to the latest report, producers will absolutely, positively give Amber the axe if it is proven that she wielded a machete in her July 5 attack against Glennon.
In case you are just catching up on this wild and disturbing story, Portwood was arrested the morning after July Fourth because she supposedly blamed Glennon for the couple and its one-year old son, James, missing a fireworks show due to an abundance of traffic.
She then hurled a shoe at Glennon while he was cradling James — and has admitted to this act.
And she then took a giant sword and tried to break into the bathroom where Andrew was hiding with James — although she has denied this act.

With rumors swirling over whether MTV will keep employing Amber after such a violent episode, multiple outlets have now at least confirmed that she was NOT a part of the Teen Mom OG reunion held this past weekend in New York City.
“Amber’s trying to get things together in her life and she wasn’t able to attend,” a source tells Us Weekly, ading:
“She’s dealing with the situation and her most important thing is her family.”
To be clear: Portwood skipping the reunion does not, in and of itself, mean that she’s been fired.
Amber was in court just a few days ago to hear a list of the charges against her and is dealing with a very serious legal situation right now.
As a result, attending “just wasn’t a consideration with everything else she has going on right now,” Radar Online writes.
Portwood’s costars — Maci Bookout,Catelynn Lowell and Cheyenne Floyd — did, of course, travel to The Big Apple without her.
And so did the 29-year-old’s ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, with whom she shares daughter Leah, 10, Us Weekly reports.
“Gary was asked about the situation and he was very diplomatic,” the tabloid reveals. “They have a nice relationship now.”
Inside a courtroom at the aforementioned hearing on July 10, Portwood was ordered to stay away from both Glennon and her baby son.
This makes a lot of legal sense when you consider the allegations against her.
According to court documents, the MTV personality really did possess a machete during the fight with Glennon, who was holding their 14-month-old and trying to keep him safe during the assault.
“[Amber] struck the machete at and into a door, while Andrew Glennon was standing directly on the other side of the door, that created a substantial risk of bodily injury to Andrew Glennon,” the documentss read.
As of this writing, Portwood is staying with her mom and trying to figure out what to do next, in a personal, professional and legal sense.
She has starred on Teen Mom OG since its premierei n 2009 and was also arrested for domestic assault (of Shirley) in 2010, a crime for which she eventually spent 17 months behind bars.

The irony in all this firing talk is that Portwood came very close to quitting the franchise just a few months ago.
Very unhappy with how she was being portrayed on the show, Portwood told an executive producer:
“I just don’t feel like this is right for my life anymore, seeing that you guys want a certain kind of story that I just don’t want to give you anymore. I just feel like it’s very different from a reality show anymore.”
She had previously Tweeted a similar sentiment.
“The heartache this show has put me through is too much to bear anymore,” she wrote in early 2019, prior to agreeing to return for Season 8 and adding back then:
“My name will not get smeared anymore. I hope everyone is resting easy with the money they’ve made off of heartache and pain that I’ve endured.”
