Last night’s Teen Mom wasn’t quite as depressing as I thought it would be, so that’s a plus right? There were other pluses too…a dog got painted, Maci finally realized Bentley needed to socialize with kids his own age, Amber decided to stick it out in rehab, and Butch reveals that he isn’t a big drinker. Just wait.
Farrah’s sister Ashley is visiting her in Florida. Her mom will be arriving in the next few days for a visit. Farrah reveals that she and Sophia have a more better place to live in Florida than she ever had at her mom’s house. Yes, yes, Farrah. It’s way more better. How’s school?
If you blinked, grabbed a snack, or called Iowa to warn them Farrah was on the way, you probably missed Catelynn‘s contribution to this episode.
Butch announces he’s off to find a job. That’s the end of the Butch scenes, which is a darn shame. Next week’s previews show Butch flabbergasted that somebody ran a background check on him, so he’s either having issues finding employment or he’s heading back to the slammer.
Catelynn’s grandmother comes for a visit. While she’s there, Catelynn and Tyler‘s adoption counselor Dawn calls to invite them to attend an adoption support group meeting. I was really hoping Catelynn’s grandmother and Dawn were setting Catelynn up, and instead of support group, they were whisking her away to What Not To Wear.
Amber Portwood just can’t catch a break. Not only is the Teen Mom star serving time in prison, she’s about to undergo an examination of her “medical, psychological, mental, and emotional health” which could last several weeks. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that during that time, Amber will not be allowed to have any visitors…and that includes four-year-old daughter Leah.
Douglas S. Garrison, the Chief Communications Officer of the Indiana Department of Corrections, tells the site, “During this diagnostic process time, Amber is not allowed any visitors, including her baby daughter. However, she is allowed to make out-going phone calls.”
Thankfully, Teen Mom wasn’t nearly as depressing this week. Last week’s premiere of Teen Mom was a train wreck. This week, instead of weeping like a fool, I sat completely dumbfounded. These girls have come so far yet have gone nowhere. How is that possible? I spent the bulk of the hour resisting the urge to bang my own head against a wall.
At least the super adorable and maturing (someone has to, right?) toddlers bring a new aspect to the show. Too bad we can’t just watch them and skip their parents. Let’s pitch ‘Dr. Drew’s Daycare’ to MTV.
I’m holding onto the knowledge that Barbara, Jenelle Evan’s always amusing mom, will be back on my TV soon enough on Teen Mom 2. As long as I have Barbara in my life, I think I’ll be able to cope without Teen Mom. If Teen Mom 2 ever is canceled, I’m going to need therapy to learn how to go on with my life. Take a deep breath, grab the tissues, and let’s start the beginning of the end.
According to a new report, MTV has already renewed the Teen Mom 2 series for a fourth season, even though the third season has yet to air!
Radar Online reports the cast just wrapped up filming season 3 and the girls are happy a fourth season is in the works. “The girls are excited for a fourth season because they weren’t sure if it was going to happen for them. Jenelle and Leah still have great story lines, but Kailyn and Chelsea’s weren’t as strong, so they were worried,” a source tells Radar.
The source continues, “They finished filming the third season and the reunion already — and the show won’t even air until late this year probably. But they’ve kicked off filming the fourth season which will probably be their last.”
It’s also likely, that just like the original Teen Moms, season four will be the last for this cast as well. “They’ve been talking to the girls from the original Teen Mom since MTV just announced this upcoming season, their fourth, would also be their last,” adds the source.

So if you’re over 18 and desperate, feel free to shoot an email to MattyPRadioHappyHour@yahoo.com, with the subject line “Gary Date.” You should also include a photo of yourself and why you deserve this date!
While Amber Portwoodhad publicly expressed her wish to end her career with MTV’s mega hit show, Teen Mom, citing she felt “exploited,” it is now becoming extremely likely that Amber will never appear on another episode of the series.
If you recall, Amber was sentenced by an Indiana judge recently to either do five years in prison or a stint in a drug program. Amber wisely chose the latter and will be heading into the Sister 2 Sister Ministries program any day now, pending evaluation.
While the judge did not give Amber, 21, a clear time frame of how long she needed to be in the program, TMZ is reporting Amber was ordered to live in a halfway house for up to three years.
In addition to that, she must also get a court approved 9-to-5 job that she must attend at least five days a week. The judge, however, made it crystal clear that filming Teen Mom does NOT constitute as a job. In fact, the judge even went one step futher by stating Amber CANNOT film anything for MTV while staying at the halfway house, working her job or appearing in court.
The judge also got in touch with MTV, and the network promised the court it would not sue Amber for breaking her contract with the series due to her sentencing.
I’m not surprised MTV is willing to let Amber out of her contract as for starters, not agreeing to do so would equal very bad publicity for the network. Plus, following Amber’s suicide attempt last summer, something tells me MTV might be more than happy to part ways with her, perhaps not wanting to experience blame or backlash in the case of any future tragedy. In fact, just last October, Amber revealed she was still suicidal.
Amber’s departure from MTV would spell bad news for her baby daddy, Gary Shirley,who has reportedly blown most of his MTV earnings on boozing and strippers.
