Well, if they are both clean and are (very) serious about sobriety, and truly care about one another then fair play to them. If they are not serious about staying clean (AND sober), then I hate to think about what will happen.
As far as Dionne's and Mitch's denials are concerned - it's highly probable that Amy is not being entirely thruthful with her family and friends when it comes to Blake, given that they don't appear to be terribly fond of him.
I'm feeling like this is
the real deal.
Mitch & Dionne can deny all they want to the press, but it doesn't change the fact that Amy & Blake are determined to be together. Perhaps if Mitch spent more time getting to know and respect his daughter as an adult, instead of infantillising her, maybe Amy wouldn't have to resort to acting like a rebellious and willful child.
Out of everyone close to her, leaking stories to the press, Mitch seems to be the leader of the pack in exploiting and selling her out. What purpose does it serve to have cameras following her around during her recovery for a documentary entitled, "My Daughter Amy?", except for blatant self-promotion on his part? Does it help Amy in the long run? Best to keep these family matters private instead of playing to the court of public opinion starring Mitch as the hero, the long-suffering father.
While I'm not a fan of Blake's, I do understand how Amy feels about him. They seem to love each other very deeply, and despite the mistakes they've made in their lives, they deserve every happiness life has to offer. If they are determined to be together, their families and friends need to show more compassion and understanding instead of throwing stones and placing blame.
I'm jus' sayin.
