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.
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.
Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell definitely put those baby rumors to rest! The reality star has gone through a major weight loss!
Catelynn and her fiance Tyler Baltierra took to Twitter to show off her new slim figure! Catelynn writes, “Ohhhh look at me now!!!” and Tyler gushed over her new figure, too. Tyler posted the shot of her in the red tank top with “See her now! #freakingloveher”.
Catelynn should be proud, she looks fantastic! I wonder if she’ll share what successful plan she used to achieve her weight loss. I’m thinking she did it the old fashion way – with diet and exercise. Catelynn Tweeted that she’s been hitting the gym. “At the gym! #feelingsexyandfree”.
“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?
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.
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.
