Teen Mom OG is back and better than ever! Season 6 kicked off with a double episode on January 4, featuring some high-highs and low-lows (looking at you, Butch Baltierra‘s hair). Get caught up on the drama-filled lives of Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood and Farrah “Future President” Abraham as they navigate motherhood, relationships and — in Farrah’s case — life post–sex tape.
Tyler’s Bachelor Party Plans = “Ass and Titties”
Tyler might be committed to Catelynn, but he was all about going to a strip club for his bachelor party. “Even if it’s an hour of ass and titties and beer, she can’t be pissed about strip clubs — she just can’t,” Tyler complained to a friend. “If I was gonna cheat on you, I would have done it so many times by now. But I’m not.”
Later, Tyler defended himself to his bride-to-be, saying, “I want you to get a d–k in your face with a male stripper.” Her response? “I’m not interested in that … I don’t want to hear you talk about how hot this girl is in front of me.”
Catelynn Opens Up About Pre-Wedding Weight Gain
Catelynn had to buy a new wedding dress thanks to gaining baby weight, but she wasn’t sweating it. “I am comfortable — I feel good,” she said. “Life’s life — things happen. Things are gonna happen. Bodies change all the time.” Preach.
Butch Baltierra Is Back, and He Means Business
Butch is a free man! Tyler’s dad finished his domestic assault sentence right in time for his son’s wedding, and was sporting a mane of wild gray hair. “Hello, world — I’m free and single!” Butch cooed as he tied his Rapunzel-like tresses into a ponytail. “You know what I say — if there’s snow on the roof, you know there’s fire cookin’ below!”
On a sweeter and slightly less weird note, Butch had a beautiful reunion with his family and brought a tear to everyone’s eye when he presented them with stuffed animals made from prison socks.
Amber Is *So Over* Not Having Custody of Leah
Amber vs. Gary! The Indiana native was majorly peeved that her ex continued to deny her 50/50 custody of their daughter, and to make matters worse, Leah kept pitting her parents against each other. “She makes me upset,” Leah told her dad. “She’s not fun like you ’cause she doesn’t want to spend time with me.” Weirdly, Leah then told Amber that Gary didn’t spend time with her during a family trip to Disneyland. Keep stirring that pot, Leah.
Amber Admits She’s Been Hospitalized for Anxiety
Amber might be clean and sober, but she still suffers from acute anxiety. “I get anxious everywhere I go,” she told her boyfriend, Matt Baier. “I’ve been to the hospital three times in the past eight months for anxiety attacks.” The single mom hasn’t taken medication despite being bipolar, saying she fears relapse. “It’s the fact of taking prescription pills that I’m not comfortable with,” Amber said.
So, Ryan Edwards Is Still Terrible at Coparenting
Remember last season when Maci refused to let her son on camera due to Farrah being a “porn star”? Well, looks like she had a change of heart — both her kids are featured this season! “We decided if me and Taylor are gonna do it, we’re all gonna be on it,” she explained.
Meanwhile, Maci’s OG baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, was just as complacent as ever — failing to show up to Maci’s Mud Run and then ditching Bentley’s first day of school. “It’s just his first day in another grade,” Ryan told his friends while they looked understandably appalled. Hmmm, is it any surprise that Maci wants to change their custody arrangement?
Farrah and Simon Sitting in a Tree? Not So Much
Farrah broke up with her boyfriend, Simon Saran, just two weeks prior to filming, but they decided to reevaluate their relationship on camera. Not so shockingly, it was a massive failure. Farrah accused Simon of being immature, and when he defended himself she called him a “stupid juvenile piece of s–t.”
Later, Simon and Farrah reconnected at a friend’s wedding, but he still wouldn’t commit. “We’ll see where it progresses,” Simon said. “I can’t just give you a definite answer. There’s nothing to rush into.” Farrah’s response? To call Simon a bad influence on her daughter and walk out on their date. Meanwhile, Farrah’s long-suffering mother tried to hook her up with some random sailor named Aaron, but her attitude was distinctly “no scrubs.”
Sophia Hits Farrah on Camera, Isn’t Punished
Farrah and her mom got into one of their usual feuds (this time over Debra babysitting), and Sophia reacted to their tense conversation by hitting her mom. Repeatedly. Farrah simply said, “Stop hitting people,” and then caused Debra to cry by quipping, “Somebody who is blind and I could just pay, could [babysit] better than you.” Sigh, just another Monday night!
Tell Us: Is Farrah too hard on her mom?
Teen Mom OG airs on MTV Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
