On the Teen Mom OG episode ‘Cray Gardens’, while Catelynn and Tyler look at a new home, Amber Portwood talks about getting a mommy makeover. When a producer asks Amber what that involves, Amber says on camera she doesn’t want to get into the details but says, “I just want to shape my body back to what it was, and feel better about myself.” Amber says her past, dramatic weight losses have “messed with my body and being on TV doesn’t really help.” She adds, “It’s a big part of my depression.” When the producer asks how her depression interacts with it, Amber says, “I think was in bed for at least three weeks straight.” Amber’s fiance Matt says, “Yes you were.”

Amber explains: “But now that I’m on this bipolar depression medication, it’s actually working. So I actually feel normal.” Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9pm on MTV.
