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!

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.
TELL US – IS FARRAH SELFISH OR SMART IN HER DECISION TO LEAVE HER DAUGHTER?
On last night’s Teen Mom, Farrah continued her North American trek to find somewhere warm and sunny to live, Amber went to jail, Maci decided to go back to school, and Tyler and Catelynn worked on some relationship issues.
Amber and Gary are getting along swimmingly until Amber is arrested for domestic battery. Gary tells his mom it’s hard because Amber is doing everything she needed to do, they have finally developed a friendly, civil relationship, and the battery happened over six months ago.
Farrah is over her plan to move to Arizona and now wants to get her bachelor’s degree at a school in Florida. She discusses her plan with her mother who is supportive of her daughter furthering her education, but voices the same concerns about childcare for Sophia. Farrah explains that lots of girls her age have the experience of going off to college, and while her mom agrees, she points out that most girls her age aren’t trying to go to college full time with a toddler. Farrah’s mom offers to keep Sophia while Farrah moves to Florida, as plane flights home to visit Sophia would be much cheaper than full-time childcare if Farrah were to have her daughter with her full-time in Florida. Farrah become very upset at this suggestion.

While fans of MTV’s Teen Momcontinue to wonder about the chemistry between exes Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards, Maci is now publicly admitting she still loves Ryan.
Maci, who graces the cover of the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, admits she still loves Ryan, the father of her 2-year-old son Bentley, but claims she is no longer in love with him.
“I love him [Ryan],” Maci, 20, admits, “but there is a big difference between loving someone and being in love with them.” And when asked about their chemistry on a recent episode of the show, Maci explains, “I’m just not sure what it is, and I haven’t asked Ryan about it.” She adds, “I don’t know what Ryan’s feelings are. They change day to day.”
Ryan on the other hand also talked to UsWeekly though he made it clear that when it comes to Maci, his only concern is his son. Ryan tells Us Weekly his relationship with Maci “is Bentley only,” adding, “We don’t have anything to talk about other than Bentley.” Perhaps Ryan’s strong stance on the issue has to do with his new girlfriend, Dalis Connell – a 19-year-old college student & model, whom he has been dating for a few months. Photos of Dalis below!
Maci’s beau Kyle Kinghowever feels Ryan still has feelings for Maci. “Ryan 100 percent still has feelings for her,” Kyle, 23, states. As for Maci, she adds that her issues with Ryan has only made her relationship with Kyle stronger, while also accusing Ryan and his parents of trying to come in between her and Kyle.
In fact, things took a nasty turn for the couple on twitter. “He dumped me…@ImDanielAlvarez ur soo immature and unimportant,” wrote Farrah in a tweet that was later deleted. Daniel then responded with, “Wow @F1abraham I’m amused by your attempt to belittle me & make me appear like a real prick. One cannot run from the truth…”
Farrah didn’t back down as she accused Danielle of hacking into her account to post the original message. “SORRY. Daniel my ex hacked my twitter. I don’t care to talk further. Im moving forward . Please just know he is purposely wanting attention,” tweeted Farrah. She later added, “Coward. stay away from my accounts. Hope you enjoy the attention you wanted to get from talking to me.” And to think all was well and dandy between these two just a mere 2 weeks ago…

According to a new TMZ report,Teen Mom “star” Gary Shirley spent $5,000 while out on a stripper bender!
TMZ reports Gary, baby daddy of the troubled Amber Portwood, went on a marathon strip club session earlier this summer and dropped $5,000 while in the strip club for 11 hours straight. Is this even possible? Wowzers.
Sources reveal Gary made it rain at the 24-hour gentlemen’s club in Miami, dousing the strippers with money from 1AM to 12PM. Sources also add that Gary began the evening in the VIP area before moving the action into somewhere more private aka the champagne room.
An edited pic of Gary with some of the strippers during his bender is below. View at your own risk. Here’s to hoping Gary is also setting some money aside for his daughter Leah’s college fund because surely those ‘Teen Mom’ checks aren’t going to last forever.
In other Teen Mom news, Farrah Abraham has a boyfriend! Farrah told Life & Style she is dating a normal guy (and hopefully non-fameseeker) named Daniel Alvarez, who she was set up on a blind date by a woman she met with while in an airport!
Farrah describes: “She said, ‘I have a friend you should go on a blind date with.’ It’s the most random way I’ve ever met somebody!” Farrah and David had their first date in June at PF Changs and he has already met her daughter, Sophia, Farrah gushes: “I introduced them right away. It’s like a perfect little family. He’s great with Sophia.”
