The mom of James, 1, and Leah, 10, has always been candid and open about her struggles with bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorders, and addiction on the show. 

This isn’t the first time Portwood was arrested for domestic battery.

In 2010, she was arrested and charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery stemming from a fight with, Gary Shirley, ex-fiancé and father to her 10-year-old daughter.

Not all of the details regarding last night’s alleged assault have been released.

Portwood has yet to issue a statement regarding her arrest.
