Teen Mom OG Recap: Let’s Try That Again
This week on Teen Mom OG, Farrah helped Michael plan his proposal, while Catelynn freaked out again and Tyler became overwhelmed.
At the same time, Maci and Taylor celebrated their anniversary, but was a dark cloud hovering over the joyous occasion?
Perhaps most significantly, Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 9 began with a pregnancy reveal. How’s that for burying the lede?
Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon confessed to the show’s producers and revealed that they were indeed expecting.
Since they don’t use birth control, so Amber said she wasn’t surprised it happened despite only knowing him for three months.
We don’t even know where to start with that.
Amber also revealed that she stopped taking her medication for bipolar disorder after meeting Glennon, as she no longer needs it.
He’s so much more positive than anyone she’s ever known, she says, so she can get by without the drugs, she now believes.
Andrew went on to say that he wasn’t looking for a relationship, but that “something gravitational” brought the couple together.
He admitted the idea of raising a baby makes him “slightly terrified” but at the same time this just “feels so right” with Portwood.
Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were gearing up to launch their clothing line, but that stressed Tyler out big time.
Between that, trying to finish their house and take care of his dad, he was running on fumes and suffering from low self-esteem.
In Italy, Farrah Abraham helped her father Michael propose to his girlfriend, with a poem that ended with a proposal (she said yes).
Even Farrah’s mom, Debra Danielsen, offered them congratulations and an engagement gift before they all went out to dinner.
Because she had to get in at least one good dose of drama per episode, Farrah said vacations are better without Deb’s fiancé.
Finally, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney were celebrating their anniversary when Amber told them she was pregnant via text.
The topic of more children then took over their dinner, with Maci telling her husband she wasn’t nuts about having another.
She said she’d like to adopt in a year or two, but right now, the idea of having another biological child feels a bit daunting to her.
Taylor feels at least somewhat more strongly about it, and Maci said that if he really wanted to, she’d do it, but ASAP please.
She also brought up the fact that they had miscarried earlier that year, something McKinney did not want to discuss on MTV.
They hadn’t yet told their families about this, but Maci felt it was important to have this conversation in front of their audience.
