Last night on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 5, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra finally got the chance to see their first-born child.
Of course, this was not without complications.
If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that they’ve wanted to see Carly for years, plural, and now her adoptive parents agreed.
Of course, their proposed date conflicted with a vacation they already planned, which left an already struggling Lowell extremely upset.
Cate felt that Carly’s mother, Teresa, was making thing more complicated than necessary, though they were able to find a new date.
When they got to North Carolina to see Carly, Tyler said that he wasn’t as nervous as in the past about what the family thinks of them.
“I love them and I think they’re good people. They’re raising her right,” he said, and beyond that, “I just don’t really care, I guess, anymore.”
Cliffhanger alert: They will meet Carly NEXT week.
Meanwhile, Farrah Abraham returned from traveling overseas, realizing that she needed to fix her relationship with her mother Debra.
If not for her, for Sophia, who she knows should have a figure like her in her grandmother in her life … Farrah is ever-so selfless, people.
Farrah also helped her dad’s girlfriend pick out a ring, proving to be on better terms with her father’s significant other than her mom’s.
Naturally, with all these things going on, and a lot on her plate career-wise (see Farrah Abraham’s LinkedIn page), she had this idea:
Take a drop with Debra and Sophia to Italy, and also invite Michael and his girlfriend, and help plan Michael’s proposal to her as well.
What could possibly go wrong?!
In Tennessee, Maci Bookout asked Ryan Edwards to please take a drug test before seeing their son Bentley again, but he never responded.
To her. He did talk to his wife.
Edwards told Mackenzie Standifer that he did submit to the test, but knew that the drugs he’d used wouldn’t be out of his system yet.
Ryan did eventually talk to Maci, only to flip the script and tell her she was only hurting Bentley by keeping them apart with her actions.
After she didn’t respond, he said he’d be taking her to court over this. Yeah. Cue Mackenzie ranting against MTV in 5 … 4 … 3 …
Finally, Amber Portwood was having second thoughts about her breakup with Matt Baier, though she obviously got over that.
Amber, of course, is now expecting a child with Andrew Glennon, who she met while filming Marriage Boot Camp … with Baier.
That escalated fast, yes, so what we’re seeing on Teen Mom OG feels like a lifetime ago even though it’s only like six months.
On this week’s show, Baier was reaching out to her, and just when she thought this was over she realized she still had feelings.
She admitted she loved him, considered flying out to Las Vegas to see him and wondered if there was still something there.
(Besides Jennifer Conlon.)
Her friends and family felt she should reconsider this, that she deserved more, etc. Sage advice from the Portwood crew …
