“Don’t believe everything you read, I’m definitely not pregnant. I’m on the pill. And, I’m only 20–I don’t want to have kids until I’m out of school and we’re married.”
I have to admit, I’m relieved that the rumors were false. Good for Catelynn for keeping her focus on school and their upcoming wedding. This girl continues to impress. She and Tyler Baltierra seem to be the ones with the best odds at achieving some sense of normalcy in their lives.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK CATELYNN HAS THE BEST CHANCE AT A NORMAL LIFE OUT OF ALL THE TEEN MOMS?
There must be something in the water because it’s baby news galore in the reality TV world. It seems everyone is pregnat, trying to be, or talking about babies!
First up, Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell is reportedly pregnant with baby no 2! Months before she’s due to walk down the aisle with fiancé Tyler Baltierra, Catelynn is apparently telling friends she is expecting.
Jamie Pyrzewski, a friend of the reality star shared the news with the never reliableIn Touch Weekly. “She said, ‘You’re never going to believe it: I’m pregnant,’” Jamie dishes, adding that she is one of the first people out of a small group of friends and family that Catelynn told – which is why she’s spilling the details to a national magazine.
“We were both quiet. I asked how she felt about it. She said she was nervous and scared,” Jamie adds. At first Catelynn was apparently panicked, but now she’s thrilled.
We have seen their relationship go through some of the toughest and most private moments that teens could imagine. From 16 & Pregnant through three seasons of Teen Mom, viewers have watched Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra catapult into adulthood, far before their time. After getting pregnant at sixteen, the couple made the difficult choice to place their daughter Carly up for adoption. Thanks to their open relationship with Carly’s parents, the pair is able to share in Carly’s milestones, but at home they have dealt with their fair share of family problems.
Now, after the fourth and final season of their Teen Mom franchise has filmed (it begins airing next Tuesday, June 12, on MTV), the couple seems to have finally gotten their happy ending. Being the one couple I have sincerely rooted for since the beginning, I am happy to announce that they will be walking down the aisle on July 15, 2013. In an interview with wetpaint.com, Catelynn and Tyler discuss their wedding…and whether we’ll get to see it happen.
It deeply saddens me to report this news, as I take it as a sign that Amber Portwood has given up hope. The Teen Mom star was just sentenced to five years in prison after asking an Indiana judge to reimpose her original sentence.
Amber has had a string of legal issues – most of them related to her substance abuse – recently she was participating in a drug treatment and sobriety program in exchange for serving jail time, but after she was kicked out of the program for missing too many requirements after a gallbladder surgery she decided to do jail time instead of campaigning to be reinstated.
Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been a wreck for a while now and is desperately pleading with a judge to send her to prison!
Amber was offered a second chance by the judge back in January. She could’ve avoided prison if she successfully completed a drug rehab program. Amber has been in and out of jail and is now requesting that she be sent to prison so she can serve the time and get clean.
During a routine hearing yesterday, Amber admitted to the judge she would always “be a bad girl” and that she hasn’t been clean at all since starting the program at the beginning of the year. Amber told the judge she couldn’t stand the drug program and wanted out. The only alternative for Amber is prison.
Amber was taken into custody and will sit in the county jail until her sentencing – which could be up to five years per the original agreement.
This makes me so sad for her that she thinks the only way to help herself is prison. She clearly has had some deep problems all along, but how much of it is related to the pressures of being in the media spotlight at such a young age?
TELL US – DO YOU THINK MTV IS TO BLAME FOR ANY OF AMBER’S ISSUES? DO YOU THINK PARTICIPATING IN TEEN MOM IS TOO MUCH FOR THESE YOUNG GIRLS TO BE IN THE SPOTLIGHT?
One batch of pseudo wealthy, formerly adolescent moms are walking off into the sunset (and probably heading on to another reality show, let’s be real) on the final season of Teen Mom, which will premiere on June 12.
In the below trailer, it’s evident this season will be just as dramatic as the ones before. Amber Portwood will have to discuss her rotating court and prison appearances; Catelynn Lowell continues to deal with her dysfunctional mother; Maci Bookout still has feelings for her baby daddy, and Farrah Abraham decides to leave her toxic mother. And also continue to be the worst.
Ugh – after wisely phasing the original Teen Mom out of the line-up following one trainwreck after another from the cast, we could only hope MTV had plans to drop the Teen Mom series completely. No such luck!
RadarOnline is reporting that MTV has started casting for Teen Mom 3 which will follow a whole group of moms from this season’s16 & Pregnant. Although, this time MTV has an agenda to cast more stable girls!
Mackenzie Douthit, a former cheerleader from Oklahoma has a son named Gannon (yes, for real) and she is engaged to baby daddy Josh McGee. “She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.” Wait – they aern’t looking for Jenelle Evans, Jr?
Alexandria Sekella is from Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella. She is memorable because she considered giving her daughter up for adoption but changed her mind. Alexandria also satisfied the crazy daddy drama, as her former fiancé Matt McCann entered rehab last December for drug addiction.
Regardless both girls are said to be thrilled about having their lives documented for our viewing pleasure. “Both of them are excited to be on Teen Mom 3,” the source says. “It’ll be quite a journey. Viewers loved them and can’t wait to see more.”
Well, hopefully they’ll have their lives a little more on track than certain current Teen Moms!
WILL YOU BE WATCHING TEEN MOM 3? ARE MACKENZIE AND ALEXANDRIA GOOD CHOICES FOR THE SHOW?
When Teen Moms come to mind, usually there are a few (okay, one or two) that give us faith in the humanity of our nation’s youth, while the others are just famewhore train wrecks. This blog post is about Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra and Jenelle Evans. I’ll let you figure out who falls into which category…
While both Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout have expressed their desire to remain in the public eye with spinoffs, Catelynn and Tyler remain relatively under the radar. Viewers have championed the pair who made the undoubtedly difficult choice to place their daughter up for adoption (because that never seems to happen on the MTV hit) while overcoming major family strife to make a better life together.
