When asked why they agreed to do Teen Mom again, Maci shared, “I felt like I was such a different person when the show last aired. I’ve really grown up, and not just because I have a kid and responsibilities, but mentally and emotionally. I thought it would be cool to show how different we are and how far we’ve come in the past two or three years since we’ve been off the air. Also, to show people that just because the show went off, it doesn’t get any easier. When you’re teen parents, it’s hard forever. The struggles don’t go away; they’re just different.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Teen Mom, now catchily called “Teen Mom OG,” is back! After an initial casting snafu – all the original members will be returning! That’s right Farrah Abraham‘s full-voltage delusion will return on a weekly basis starting March 23rd. I cannot wait!
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from our good friend Farrah Abraham. But there have been two rumors about her circulating recently and we felt the need to update you, her fans. HA. I’m just kidding. Farrah’s only fan is Farrah. Um, and maybe Teen Mom 2 stalker Adam Lind, which brings me to the first rumor. Brace yourselves. It’s a doozy.
Rumor #1 – Adam wants to break into the porn industry, and he thinks the easiest way to shoot to super-porn-stardom is to make a tape with Farrah, the backdoor to endless possibilities.
“Adam is eager to get into the porn world and thinks that Farrah would make the perfect partner,” claimed a totally reliable source. #sarcasm “Adam loves what Farrah has done with her Teen Mom career. He thinks they could really rake in a lot of money since they’re both celebrities.” HAHAHAHA <celebrities> HAHAHA <can’t breathe> HAHAHAHA
The Teen Mom stars – minus Farrah Abraham – and the Teen Mom 2 stars filmed an “Ask the Moms” special, where the “biggest Teen Mom fans” were given a chance to ask the MTV stars questions. This could be really bad or really good. If nothing else, let’s hope the fans questions were better than Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s predictable, misogynistic questions.
But part of me is beginning to wonder if Farrah told MTV that she didn’t want to participate because filming Teen Mom would require – GASP! – spending time with her child. If you will recall, Sophia is living her own life, and Farrah is busy promoting her sex toys, opening a restaurant, pretending to write fiction books, gearing up for her first movie role, and working as a stripper. Where would she find the time to play mom for the cameras?
Following the taping, Dr. Jenn tweeted, “All I am going to say is that last night’s Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn reunion was major. It airs September 3rd and it will not disappoint.” Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden, Nik Richie and Shayne Lamas, and JoJo and Tiny Hailey participated in the reunion as well, but all of the gossip surrounding the taping is about the Teen Mom stars.
It’s official now – Teen Mom couple Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell are expecting a baby. Catelynn shared a picture of her baby bump on Instagram yesterday, confirming what we have believed to be true for three months now.
Family spilled the news way back in May. I never doubted it because Catelynn and Tyler had revealed plans to start a family – their daughter Carly, 5, was placed for adoption at birth – and neither Catelynn nor Tyler denied the news.
At the time, Catelynn tweeted, “I am an adult and I can tell when I’m ready and idc what ANYONE says I’m gonna do me! We ARE READY for a baby. #HatersGonnaHate” and Tyler tweeted, “Yeah I want a baby, so what!? I have been through enough in my life to understand the wisdom it takes to make this decision. #BackOff #IDGAF”. So mature, right?
