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.
Last night we bid a final farewell to MTV’s original Teen Mom cast. Well, not technically final, because I’m sure they will keep filming this train wreck as long as their are folks like me to watch it!
The finale resumes with a saddened Amber rejoining her mother on Dr. Drew’s sofa after the doctor goes to speak with her. At the end of the first half of the reunion Amber had stormed off stage because she was so upset discussing her younger sister’s death from SIDS when Amber was four years old. Dr. Drew assures Amber that SIDS is sadly a common killer of infants and no one is to blame.
Amber’s mother remembers that the mother-daughter relationship was very stressful before Amber got pregnant. Dr. Drew uses Amber and her mother as a tutorial for parents who are concerned about their child’s sex lives, discussing how to overcome the awkwardness of broaching the subject of sex with one another.

It’s the first half of this season’s Teen Mom reunion, and of course, Dr. Drew Pinsky is hosting to give his insight and expertise. Thank goodness, because we all know these ladies need it!
Dr. Drew introduces the original Teen Moms, and they all look pretty awkward. He asks them what kind of reaction they get from the public after being back on the show. Maci reveals that she has a lot of older women who were teen moms approach her to say the show helps them broach the subject of sex and parenthood with their children. That’s good, as it is supposedly the point of the program. Amber says she gets mainly negative feedback given the drama that has been a part of of Leah’s upbringing. Farrah gets good feedback, but she seems very out of it with her answer. Catelynn explains that she has many fans approach her about her choice of adoption. She even says that she went to the hospital with a girl who had chosen adoption for her baby because the baby’s father had left her alone with the difficult decision.
Dr. Drew, much like me, feels very proud of Catelynn’s impact. He shows a two minute montage which sums up the entire season. Really? Could I have just watched this Cliff Notes version instead of having to see poor Michael be ridiculed or Gary try his hand at singing?

Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is starting to have second thoughts about doing the popular MTV show according to a new interview with Life & Style magazine.
The reason? Maci, 19, worries about how the show is affecting her 2-year-old son Bentley Edwards. “I don’t want to steal his childhood,” says Maci who is worried about Bentley growing up under a harsh media microscope. “I don’t know if being on TV in elementary school would be difficult for him. I want him to have a normal life.”
Maci, who reportedly earns $60,000 per season, however adds that choosing to walk away from the fame show would be a very difficult decision because it has allowed her to provide for her son. “Without the show, I would have had to have a full-time job and be in school full-time, and I’d rarely get to spend time with Bentley,” Maci says. “It’s been difficult, but it’s also been a big blessing.”
As for the moment, Maci assures us Bentley’s not being affected by the show in any negative way. “He actually enjoys it,” she confesses. “Bentley thinks it’s cool to watch himself on TV and to have cameras around.”
In other Teen Mom news, Catelynn Lowell, you know, the one that sort of has it together and therefore no one really talks about her, is making recent headlines. The reason? It all has to do with an eviction.
According to TMZ Catelynn and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, who were shown moving into their 1st apartment together on the MTV show, were evicted from the same apartment for failing to pay rent! The 19-year-olds signed a lease on the apartment in Marine City, Michigan, in August, 2010 with court documents showing they stopped paying rent in December, 2010.
This caused their landlord to give them an eviction notice while also taking them to court. The landlord ending up winning big as the two had to give up their $450.00 security deposit, in addition to paying an additional $450 in back rent and moving out of the building.
The two of course did what any other 19-year-olds would do by taking to their twitter pages to give their side. “The landlord was an idiot and didn’t fix anything I payed [sic] every month that I lived there,” Catelynn tweeted. Tyler added, “Ok everyone I did not get evicted, I left bcuz the landlord was a lazy unprofessional man of business, and I refuse to put with it FYI.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the eviction drama makes the show.
A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
