The reality TV viewer numbers are in and ready to be analyzed. Teen Mom OG saw its third increase in a row with 1.855 million tuning in this week. The mid-season finale of Dance Moms garnered 1.451 million viewers, bringing the season five average to 1.57 million viewers. For comparison’s sake, the season four finale attracted 1.619 million and the season average was 1.84 million.
Wait… did Jenelle Evans write a relationship advice book? I haven’t heard of one, but it must exist because Amber Portwod and Matt Baier clearly read it. Amber and Matt met on Twitter. Matt moved in. Matt proposed and Amber said yes. In March, Amber gushed about how perfect they are together. In April, the Teen Mom OG shared on Twitter that Matt cheated. In May, Matt gushed about how perfect they are together. INSANITY.
In a recent interview with Starcasm, Matt opened up about his own experience with addiction, his admiration for Amber, and more. “Some people will tell you putting two addicts together is a recipe for disaster,” shared Matt. “Not if one of those addicts is Amber Portwood. Because this woman is the strongest person. Neither of us ever judged each other, which is why our relationship is so great right now. We don’t have anything to hide.”
Teen Mom OG dad Gary Shirley is officially a father of two. Gary and his girl friend, Kristina Anderson, welcomed a baby girl over the weekend. Emilee Grace was born late Saturday night and weighed in at 7 pounds, 11.4 ounces.
“Spending time with my lovely family and the newest of them all,” gushed Gary. “I love my beautiful daughter Emilee Grace Shirley. She is so perfect in every way. I love the wonderful woman who gave her to me and put her body through many changes including an emergency c-section.”
Gary continued, “Kristina you are more beautiful to me now than ever! God has a path for us all and I’m so glad he put you in my life! Leah and I are better to have you! You truly are my Mrs. Wonderful. I know you tell me all the time how blessed you are to have me, but it truly is backwards. I’m blessed to have you.”
Last week on Teen Mom OG, special snowflake Maci Bookout threw a major temper tantrum over Farrah Abraham‘s return, and she quit the show. I wish there was a happy ending to this story, however, she is back already this week with a condition (eye roll) that deprives fans of the only likable thing (imo) about Maci.. cutie patootie Bentley.
“After I left the show I was able to move away from my emotions and my anger from MTV kind of throwing me a good look loop and decide that I wanted to be on the show,” shared Maci. “I think it is important for all four of us to be on the show. I was able to create a situation that I thought was good for Bentley and good for myself and the show.“
Maci said she was done with the show, adding, “I’m not doing this anymore. I’m not going to have my six-year-old son on a show with someone who did porn on TV.” Morgan said, “If you guys were living together or best friends or working together, I’d understand, but because the show shows four completely different experiences, you’re able to see how decisions manifest in different ways.” Maci didn’t want to hear it and refused to move forward.
