Amber Portwood is looking ahead to the future with her new boyfriend, but her past is coming back to haunt her. On this week's Teen Mom OG, Portwood has moved on with a new man despite still having drama with her ex-fiancé Matt Baier.

On the episode, Portwood explained she is not visiting Baier in Las Vegas anymore because she has been talking to Andrew Glennon, who she met on Marriage Boot Camp.

"He's coming out for a few days just to hang out and get to know each other," she explained. "He related to my story, he wasn't trying to f**k me. I want to meet him first off camera so I could get a feel for him and see if it's anything I want to pursue."

Their meeting went well, as he soon met producers.

"I got to learn a lot about her on the show," Glennon explained. "The first day of filming I was in the interview room with her and that's when I learned the most. I tried to place myself in the house where you were because I wanted to learn more about you."

Portwood's baby daddy Gary Shirley revealed she hasn't seen their daughterLeah because she has been depressed over Baier.

Shirley explained to his wife, "She owes me child support. She owes me $9,600. Amber is not there. She is a come and go kind of mom. I don't think her head is in kid mode."

But now that she's in better spirits with Glennon, she reached out to Shirley to see Leah.

She explained to Shirley about her absence, "That was the Matt situation because we completely broke up. I got pretty bad. I didn't want to be around Leah like that. I just wasn't feeling very well. I just now started dating. I don't want to cry in front of her. I don't want her to see me like this. I'm starting to get better."

When Shirley asked if she has heard from Baier, she revealed he has threatened to commit suicide.

"He keeps begging me everyday," she said. "He's going to kill himself. He'll send me pictures of pills. I'm not going back to him."

Also on the episode, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra see their oldest daughterCarly, who they placed for adoption, for the first time in two years.

"She was bawling her eyes out," Baltierra said of his wife. "It sucks that we were so young and it sucks our parents sucked. You're selfish when you're 16. I had a feeling this trip was going to be tough on her."

Baltierra then said of their youngest daughter Nova, "To see them together and know they're not going to grow up together. Watching her go away. It almost doesn't feel right."

Maci Bookout's baby daddy Ryan Edwards continued to refuse a drug test after going to rehab for heroin.

"I'm still not letting Bentley go over there," she said of Edwards and his parents' home. "I've done more than I could possibly do. Bentley hasn't said anything about Ryan, but I know he is wondering when he'll be able to see mimi and papa. It's hurting him and them."

Instead of taking a drug test, Edwards fought with his wife Mackenzie before taking their engagement photos when he demanded to know how much she spent at the mall.

"I'm going to get in the shower just to get away," he fired, as she responded, "Can you just please get ready?"

He then yelled, "Whose the one with an attitude. What's your deal?" She fired back, "You! Don't do this right here. You just come in and you have this attitude. This is supposed to be a happy time. Don't ruin this!"

The fighting didn't end there, as Farrah Abraham continued to feud with her estranged mother Debra Danielsen over her fiancé David.

When Abraham told her mother that her daughterSophia doesn't want to go to the wedding, she said, "Grandma likes David. Everyone is getting along with David. If you would like to understand David a little better get to know him better. I think that would be a good idea."

Abraham fired back, "I don't take the time to understand people. It's been the exact opposite. I wish you would not date someone who is so narrow-minded and horrible. When we're not at your wedding you know why."

Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 10/9c on MTV.
