Last night we bid a final farewell to MTV’s original Teen Mom cast. Well, not technically final, because I’m sure they will keep filming this train wreck as long as their are folks like me to watch it!
The finale resumes with a saddened Amber rejoining her mother on Dr. Drew’s sofa after the doctor goes to speak with her. At the end of the first half of the reunion Amber had stormed off stage because she was so upset discussing her younger sister’s death from SIDS when Amber was four years old. Dr. Drew assures Amber that SIDS is sadly a common killer of infants and no one is to blame.
Amber’s mother remembers that the mother-daughter relationship was very stressful before Amber got pregnant. Dr. Drew uses Amber and her mother as a tutorial for parents who are concerned about their child’s sex lives, discussing how to overcome the awkwardness of broaching the subject of sex with one another.

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is now expressing regret over leaving her daughter Sophia behind in Iowa while she moved to Florida months ago.
As reported two weeks ago, Farrah left 2-year-old Sophia behind in Iowa to live with her mom Debra Danielson, while she moved 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and to also pursue her modeling career. In a new interview with Life & Style, Farrah, 20, opens up about the regret and painful consequences of her decision.
“It was a very hard choice,” Farrah tells Life & Style, adding that she was “depressed” at the time. “The first couple of days [after leaving Sophia], I cried a lot.”
It however appears that several months later, Farrah has had a change of heart. “I miss my daughter a lot,” she says. According to Life & Style, Farrah has decided that she wants to move Sophia to Florida to come live with her.
“Farrah is in the process of bringing her to Florida for good,” a friend of Farrah’s confirms. “She has been talking to her mom about moving to Florida with Sophia. This way Farrah can still continue with her studies and have her daughter with her, and her mom would be there to give her the extra help she needs.”
Farrah’s ex-boyfriend Daniel Alvarez is however telling In Touch Weekly magazine that Farrah doesn’t have her priorities right. According to Daniel, Farrah is more concerned with partying than being a mom to Sophia.
“Farrah sometimes left Sophia with neighbors so she could go out,” says Daniel adding that Farrah has “big dreams” and wants to launch a clothing line and star in her own TV show.
OK! magazine chimes in reporting that Farrah usually ignores Sophia whenever she comes to visit her in Florida. “Sophia is either with a babysitter, because Farrah is out, or she’s being sent back to Iowa. One of the most important things for a child’s development is routine and stability and Sophia has neither,” says a source.
Farrah has also received some criticism for making her mom Debra, who was arrested in 2010 for chocking her, Sophia’s primary caregiver. The source adds that Farrah “had told pals her mom’s hit her before” that 2010 incident.
Farrah is pictured above on September 28 showing off her bikini body as she hit the beach in Florida with daughter Sophia. MTV camera crews were on hand to capture the moment for the already much-anticipated Teen Mom Season 4.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS SOPHIA BETTER OFF IN FLORIDA WITH FARRAH OR IN IOWA WITH DEBRA?
It’s the first half of this season’s Teen Mom reunion, and of course, Dr. Drew Pinsky is hosting to give his insight and expertise. Thank goodness, because we all know these ladies need it!
Dr. Drew introduces the original Teen Moms, and they all look pretty awkward. He asks them what kind of reaction they get from the public after being back on the show. Maci reveals that she has a lot of older women who were teen moms approach her to say the show helps them broach the subject of sex and parenthood with their children. That’s good, as it is supposedly the point of the program. Amber says she gets mainly negative feedback given the drama that has been a part of of Leah’s upbringing. Farrah gets good feedback, but she seems very out of it with her answer. Catelynn explains that she has many fans approach her about her choice of adoption. She even says that she went to the hospital with a girl who had chosen adoption for her baby because the baby’s father had left her alone with the difficult decision.
Dr. Drew, much like me, feels very proud of Catelynn’s impact. He shows a two minute montage which sums up the entire season. Really? Could I have just watched this Cliff Notes version instead of having to see poor Michael be ridiculed or Gary try his hand at singing?

Last night’s season finale of Teen Mom was another super-sized episode that had each member of the franchise making very difficult decisions. Will Farrah take Sophia to Florida (thanks Life & Style for being a spoiler!)? Will Carly come to Catelynn and Tyler’s graduation? Will Amber reconcile with Gary? What will become of the Maci-Kyle-Ryan drama trifecta?
It’s Sophia’s second birthday, and Farrah wants to put the family stress of her impending move aside for her party. She walks into her parents’ home and her father greets her warmly. “Shut the hell up, MICHAEL!” she screams. Way to put the stress behind them. At lunch, Farrah’s mom brings up how much pain her daughter was in during labor. None of them seem to remember the day of her birth in anywhere near the same manner, but whatevs. Happy birthday, Sophia! Welcome to the cra-cra!

Over the weekend, Gary, 25, revealed he was once again done with Amber, 21, while also accusing her of cheating on him. Gary’s announcement was a bit surprising as the current issue of Star magazine reports he recently got a huge tattoo of Amber’s name tatted on him.
Star reports that while partying in Nashville on Sep. 3, Gary decided to visit a tattoo parlor to get Amber’s name tattooed on his right shoulder.
According to the local tattoo artist, Chris Collins, “Gary said, ‘Amber doesn’t know I’m down here, and I want it to be a surprise.’” Chris adds, “He told me, ‘We’ve been through a lot together, but at the end of the day, I still love her.’”
Well something’s changed since that faithful day as Gary took to his twitter page over the weekend to slam Amber. He tweeted on Saturday, “I’m completely through w amber No more back n fourth shit. I got my precious baby u got your precious anderson men hope your sins r worth it.”
Yikes! He added minutes later, “Moving on I’m bout to kick it with honors with my last night til I get Leah back from grandmas. Thank u mom for everything.” And the very next day, he made sure to tweet about a date: “I got a date tonight. With a girl in Indy… Where to take her?”
Gary also added on Sunday, “Hard to turn u away today, heading u cry was hard but your actions were terrible and this time there was no reason for what u did. No love.”
All interesting but knowing these two, it’s only a matter of time until they are back together a la Ronnie and Sammi from the Jersey Shore. A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON GARY’S AMBER TATTOO AND HIS TWEETS?
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine as she opens up to the mag about the reason she gave up her baby.
On the Sept. 13 episode of Teen Mom, Farrah sobbed as she struggled with the decision to leave her daughter, Sophia, with her mother while she attends school in Florida. “I would never leave [my daughter],” said Farrah.
Well fast forward to today and Life & Style is reporting she did just that by leaving the 2-year-old behind in Iowa with her mother Debra Danielson, moving 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale while also pursuing her modeling career. Farrah, 20, has been in Florida the past several months and Debra has since become Sophia’s primary caregiver.
In her interview with the mag, Farrah defends her decision. “Sophia is the No. 1 thing in my life,” Farrah says. “I’m just trying to be the best parent that I can. I take care of my responsibilities. I’m happy that I took the chance to move. I would never regret it.”
Farrah also praises her mother Debra for stepping in to help. “My mom is the best grandma,” Farrah says. “I want her [Sophia's grandmother] to be there for Sophia when I need to take care of my responsibilities, my education and earning an income for both of us.”
Farrah however admits she is also using this time to find herself since a number of her teen years were spent being a young mom and dealing with the death of Derek Underwood, the father of her daughter. The mag states Farrah’s “desperately trying to relive the youth she feels she was robbed of.”
“I’ve been trying to grow personally and emotionally,” Farrah admits. “I’m very much taking time to get back to myself and enjoy my freedom.”
But as more days go by, Farrah reveals she often struggles with her difficult decision. “She tells me she misses me and loves me. I’m tugged in many different ways daily — but I don’t want to limit myself or Sophia,” she states. Farrah also admits she doesn’t know when she’s coming back for Sophia.

Last night MTV decided to punish grace us with thirty extra minutes of Teen Mom, which was a tad confusing as it was just thirty extra minutes of the same old, same old. It seemed unnecessary. But enough of that, the ninety-minute episode had Amber continuing her legal battles with Child Protective Services, more drama erupting between Maci and Ryan, Farrah’s family going to counseling, and Catelynn and Tyler vacationing on Dwight Shrute’s beet farm.
Once out of the clink, Amber breaks up with Clinton so she can focus on herself and Leah. She was apparently in jail for twenty-four hours. I know this because she must tell her friend that twenty-four times during a two minute phone conversation.
Catelynn has finished her requirements for graduation. Even though their ceremony is a few months away, she and Tyler are eager to find out how Carly’s adoptive parents will respond to the invitation to come see the pair accept their high school diplomas. One quick check of their ipad (thanks, MTV!) reveals that Carly’s adoptive parents have sent Catelynn an e-mail. They are very proud of the teen’s accomplishments, but they are unable to give an answer as to whether they will come to graduation. They need more time to think about it. Not defeated, Catelynn and Tyler can see what a difficult decision this must be for Carly’s adoptive parents. The couple hopes that they will come, but they understand if they choose not to attend.

According to a new report, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood continues to be at risk for a relapse after two months in a California rehab facility where she received treatment for depression following a suicide attempt.
Sources close to Amber, 21, reveal since returning home to Indiana, the fragile single mother has run straight back into trouble aka the arms of her baby daddy Gary Shirley.
“I told her to take it slow with Gary and not jump into anything,” Amber’s brother, Shawn Portwood, tells In Touch Weekly. “But they’re back together.”
In Touch adds that while Amber was in recovery, Gary went wild. Often leaving their 2-year-old daughter Leah in the care of his mother, while he partied every night “He was always drinking and hooking up with other girls,” a pal reveals. “He says he loves Amber, but he really doesn’t act like it!”
Shawn however adds that despite getting back with Gary, Amber is trying to improve her life. “She has enrolled back in school and is taking control. She’s at peace,” Shawn says.
In other news, Amber’s fellow troubled teen mom Jenelle Evans received some good news days ago.
While she was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge for simple affray (fighting in public), the 19-year-old managed to escape jail as she was instead given a suspended sentence of 30 days, meaning she stays out of jail unless she violates probation within the next 12 months.
In addition to that, she’ll also have to pay a small fine of $100, attend anger management classes and do 24 hours of community service.
Following her court appearance on Friday, Jenelle kept it ever so classy by tweeting, “F— yes. !!!!! I WINNNNNNN ;).” This entire court case stemmed from a videotaped fight that occurred back in March during which Jenelle beat the crap out of her former friend Britany Truett.
A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
