Obviously, Teen Mom 2 is slightly behind real time, as Leah has remarried, suffered a miscarriage, and announced a third pregnancy (whew!) since that episode had been taped. In all fairness to MTV, they aren't that behind, Leah just moves really, really fast.
While Leah has moved on from her marriage to Corey, some Teen Mom 2 fans (and haters) have not. During Monday night's episode, Leah tweeted about her frustrations about… Twitter.
Do you ever wonder what Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell dream about? If yes, then today is your lucky day. HuffPost Celebrity has featured the Teen Mom stars in its No Filter column. In the hot lukewarm seat, Maci and Catelynn answer questions about their dreams, guilty pleasures, and Kim Kardashian! Oh, my!
What do Maci and Catelynn dream about? Maci shares that she dreams the same dream over and over again but refuses to tell us about it! My guess – 50 Shades of Ryan. When Maci's not dreaming her secret dream, she says she dreams about being chased, which means she's "running from Ryan lust something." Catelynn dreams about zombies. She shares, "I had a dream that I was fighting zombies and shooting them. I was running around all these rooms and locking myself in. My dog got bit by a zombie, turned into a dog zombie, and bit me."
Next question: What's on your nightstand? Maci's nightstand holds a picture of her and Bentley and a random selection of Bentley's toys. If Catelynn's zombie dreams keep her awake, she has a pictures of her fiance, Tyler Baltierra, and her Doberman on her bedside table to keep her company.
Teen Mom shocker: Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are living separately. On October 22, Tyler moved to New Orleans to pursue his dream of social working being a movie star. Simply put, Tyler says, "It's time for me to focus on my dreams." And, according to Tyler, New Orleans has a "thriving movie scene."
So, Catelynn is on her own in Michigan. To pass the time, she attends Baker College, shares Twitpics, saves pregnant teens, and (now) fends off break up rumors. Catelynn insists that she and Tyler are "stronger than ever." She shares, “I love him, and I need to stand by him.”
Catelynn feels the need to add, “It’s not like we’re going to go out and cheat on each other. We’re not like that." To reinforce Catelynn's statement, Tyler adds, "We're two peas in a pod." Catelynn and Tyler have been through a lot together – an unplanned pregnancy, placing Carly for adoption, drug addicted parents, becoming step brother and sister – and are to be married in July. Wil their relationship survive this separation?
Personally, I thought the series finale and Dr. Drew's reunion special (part oneandpart two) were send off enough. However, despite the inevitable spin offs to come, somebody (starts with a 'm' and rhymes with 'teevee') isn't ready to cut the cord.
MTV has announced three new Teen Mom specials. Perhaps the most unexpected one, though, is a half-hour interview with Amber titled Amber Behind Bars: An MTV Special set to air on October 9!
MTV's press release:
In this exclusive half-hour interview, Dr. Drew sits down with Amber Portwood inside the Rockville Correctional Facility for an intimate discussion about what life has been like behind bars, the status of her relationship with her daughter Leah, ex-boyfriend Gary, and her family, and her hopes for the future. As Amber reflects on her situation, she gives viewers an open, honest look inside the intense ups and downs she’s faced during this journey.
Watch out, world! Farrah Abraham is getting a spin-off! I know, I know…I probably won't watch it either! After (finally) saying farewell to the original train wrecks ladies of MTV's Teen Mom, it appears that at least one of them won't be fading into obscurity just yet.
On the heels of that news, it seems that the only sane couple to come out of this mess will finally be walking down the aisle, as Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are finally planning that wedding. Sadly, they sound just a delusional as their counterparts when it comes to saying "I do."
Part two brings us the rest of the original cast. Well, almost. Amber Portwood is still at summer camp. <wink, wink>
Maci and Ryan… Sitting in a Tree…
Before Dr. Drew obsesses about Maci Bookout andRyan Edwards living happily ever after, heasks Maci about college. She says, "I'm doing good now. After my first two years, I just realized how fast it was going by. I stopped making excuses. Aside from Bentley, that should be the most important thing." Maci adds she is done wasting her time and money. Also, she travels at least once a week to speak to teens about teen pregnancy.
When Dr. Drew glosses over Amber's absence, I know that this was taped a while back. I mean, "legal and personal issues" and "voluntary five-year prison term" aren't even in the same ballpark. If the "reunion show" isn't going to be taped in real time, I think it's kind of pointless.
Before we get into the meat and potatoes of the reunion, ha, who am I kidding? It's Dr. Drew. Let me start again.
Before we get into the limp lettuce and soggy potatoes of the reunion, Dr. Drew reminds us what happened this season on Teen Mom, as if it isn't already permanently burned into our brains. (I'll show you my scar tissue, if you show me yours.) Alas, the highlights…
Amber and Gary Shirley fight. Amber enters rehab after she threatens suicide. Rehab takes away Amber's fake eyelashes and spray tan but not her drugs. Amber goes home. Amber and Gary fight. Gary gets sole custody of Leah.
