Former Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was sprung from prison on Nov. 4 after serving 17 months of a five-year drug sentence — and now she’s finding support from ex-costar Farrah Abraham.

Speaking exclusively to, Abraham said jailbird Portwood should have never gone to prison and slammed her baby daddy, Gary Shirley, as being a bad influence.

“I'm happy Amber is out if jail, she never deserved to be in jail,” Farrah said.

"Gary antagonized Amber while she was also dealing with stress and handling her bipolar disorder.

"I hope Amber can now stay away from the pressures of the media and focus on her new, healthier beginning at life. I hope Leah (her daughter) can have a loving mother and daughter relationship."

Abraham isn’t the only Teen Mom who is on Portwood's side.

"Amber is actually the only one from the Teen Mom franchise that Kailyn has never met," a friend of Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry told Radar. "But Kailyn doesn’t judge because everyone goes through their own struggles.”

The friend added, “Kailyn wishes Amber nothing but the best.”

As Radar previously reported, as part of her parole, Portwood is expected to find employment, a good living situation and she cannot be associated with any other felonies.

On top of that, Portwood will be subject to random drug testing to make sure that she is staying clean.
