Tyler Baltierra: On the Verge of a Breakdown Himself?!

If you keep up with all the latest Teen Mom gossip, then you know that things have been rough for our favorite middle school sweethearts.

And they’ve been tough for a good while now, too.

In November, Catelynn Lowell revealed that she’d been suffering from suicidal thoughts, and that she’d be checking into a treatment center in Arizona to get help.

She checked herself out early before Christmas because she reportedly felt guilty for being away from her family for the holidays, but it didn’t last — she returned pretty much immediately after leaving.

In late December, she finished her treatment and returned home, but just a few weeks later, she returned for another six weeks of therapy.

She’s been there about four weeks so far, and there’s been no definite word on when she’ll come home this time.

It’s absolutely heartbreaking to know that Catelynn is going through such a hard time, but as the weeks go on, it’s becoming clear that Tyler doesn’t exactly have it easy himself.

He’s been staying in Michigan with their daughter, Nova, and running their clothing business on his own while Catelynn gets the help she needs, and it really seems like he’s running himself ragged.

Last month, he tweeted “I just don’t know if I can do this anymore,” and the next day he revealed that he was getting therapy, too.

“I’m doing a little self care today, you know what I mean?” he explained. “Sometimes you gotta put yourself ahead of other people sometimes in life.”

Since then, he’s posted a few videos that show how much he’s struggling, including one in which he openly cried about his situation.

And sadly, it looks like things still aren’t getting better for him.

In a series of videos he shared on Snapchat over the weekend, Tyler gave a little rundown of his plans for the day, and it was obvious that he was struggling.

“So I literally got to get all these Tierra Reign orders in the poly mailers and then I got to take them to the post office before they close,” he said.

“And then I have to finish this laundry and then I have to pack our bags for a week — my bag and Nova’s bag.”

He has to pack the bags, he says, because “I’m off to Arizona for Cate’s family week program at her facility.”

“It’s going to be a super, super long emotional week and a pretty long day,” he explained. “Yippee.”

He added that “I literally have all those things to do and I just don’t have the energy for it but I have to do it because if I don’t do it, it won’t get done, like usual. What’s new?”

It sounds like Tyler is really and truly exhausted from dealing with all of this, right?

He’s had this certain tone lately that makes it seem like he’s a little bit resentful of Catelynn for being away for so long, which is understandable, but also pretty upsetting.

Unfortunately for Tyler, things may be upsetting for the foreseeable future.

According to a report from Us Weekly, Catelynn is set to leave rehab at the end of this month, but the reunion special for this season of Teen Mom OG is filming in the first weekend of March.

“The reunions are always extremely emotional and grueling,” the source says, and for that reason, Catelynn might skip it altogether.

“Catelynn’s appearance is still very much up in the air and will be determined much closer to the date, even as late as the day before,” the source explains.

“Her treatment team will decide if she should go.”

If she didn’t end up going, that’s definitely fair, and it makes total sense — she’s obviously going through a lot right now, and she doesn’t need to risk her wellbeing for some reality show nonsense.

But if she doesn’t, we’d have to imagine that Tyler will have to show up in her place so that the Baltierras are represented.

And really, he has enough on his plate already.


Selena Gomez: Sad at Mom’s Breakdown, Not Sad Enough to Ditch Bieber

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are doing so much together these days. Dates. Church. Vacations. Each other.

Selena’s mom head a breakdown and was hospitalized in reaction to Jelena rearing its ugly head.

And apparently Selena’s rekindled relationship with the Biebs is causing even more problems.

A few months ago, when Justin Bieber called Mandy Teefey and asked to be reconnected with Selena Gomez, if Mandy had known where it would lead, we imagine that she would have hung up.

(You can’t really slam down a phone to hang it up like you could in the olden days, but she’d sure have pushed that end button with a lot of vigor)

See, Justin Bieber’s mom loves Selena Gomez (because of course she does!).

But Selena’s mom is not so crazy about the singer she must remember as a poorly behaved boy with alleged substance abuse issues, anger problems, who has spent he last few years covering his once-beautiful body in some truly ugly tattoos.

Reportedly, it was only when Mandy learned that Selena and Justin were getting couples counseling to resolve the issues that had tripped them up in the past that it hit her:

Jelena 2.0 is for real.

We don’t know if she thought of it in those words (probably not), but to say that she was upset is an understatement.

So, Mandy Teefey had a breakdown and went to the hospital over it.

Note that she was there of her own free will — this was not an involuntary psych hold. We’re glad that she had the self-awareness to know that she needed some medical attention.

And yes, we know that “mom freaked out so much about daughter’s boyfriend she had a breakdown” sounds like the fakest story ever, but it comes from TMZ and they are very diligent about making sure that they can confirm whatever they report.

That her daughter was going to therapy with her ex meant that it was serious, that Selena’s revisiting past mistakes and that Mandy’s nightmare has returned.

And apparently Selena and her mom have had it out over their disagreement — both have reportedly unfollowed the other on Instagram, for the time being.

As unhappy as Mandy is, Selena isn’t exactly thrilled, either.

HollywoodLife reports that their source close to Selena says that Selena herself isn’t loving the conflict.

“Selena is heartbroken that her relationship with Justin is creating problems with her mother and the rest of her family.”

Remember, it’s not just Selena’s mom — Selena’s whole family hates Justin. They remember him as her crappy, less talented boyfriend who wasted years of her life.

“Selena feels like she is being forced to choose sides between pleasing her mother and following her heart.”

Of course.

“Selena has loved Justin for years, despite everything, good and bad. They have been through so much together and she still loves him.”

Justin’s like a bad habit that Selena just can’t shake, and she’s off the wagon.

“Selena is struggling to get her mother to understand how much Justin has grown, matured and changed, but Mandy refuses to keep an open mind about Selena’s future with Justin.”

We’d argue that Mandy doesn’t need to keep an open mind — just to keep her thoughts to herself. We’ll explain in a moment.

“Selena feels like she is being forced to choose between being in love with Justin and making her family happy.”

Her family’s more concerned about Selena’s health and future and happiness than their own right now. But, wrapped up in the idea of Justin (but not the reality), perhaps Selena can’t see that.

“Selena knows that her mom is doing her best to protect her, but it still doesn’t feel good that Selena’s relationship with Justin is creating so much anxiety for her family.”

We’re not saying that, in general, people should let their parents dictate their romantic choices.

In this case, though, Selena’s mom might have it right. At least, Justin Bieber, “changed” or not, is bad news. Just because he has a nice butt doesn’t mean that Selena needs to repeat past emotional labors to turn him into the perfect boyfriend. He’ll never be that.

That said, we think that Mandy is clearly going about this wrong.

Unless your child’s dating an absolute monster, the best thing to do (and this works if your friend is dating or even your mother) is to gently state your reservations at the beginning, and then grin and bear it until they realize their mistake.

Selena is brilliant and beautiful but right now, she’s riding an emotional high. Anybody with an ex, especially an ex they had during a formative time in their lives, can tell you that rekindling things with them brings out a rush.

If Selena’s mom winding up in the hospital isn’t enough to break up Jelena, then, for the time being, nothing will.

But in a few weeks or months or years, Mandy can give Selena a shoulder to cry on. And perhaps a very gentle “I told you so.”


Justin Bieber Reunion Triggers Breakdown, Hospitalization for Selena Gomez’s Mom

According to a new report, the mother of Selena Gomez absolutely freaked out upon learning her daughter really was serious about getting back together with Justin Bieber.

That’s not an exaggeration, either.

Nor do we mean it in a positive sense.

We mean it literally:

Sources tell TMZ that Mandy Teefey suffered an actual breakdown and had to be hospitalized as a result of Selena’s decision to hook back up with the young man who has broken her heart on so many occasions.

Sorry, The Biebs.

But it’s true.

Even though chatter over Bieber and Gomez’s reconciliation has been making its way around the Internet for a couple months now, this insider explains that Selena and her mom got into a heated conversation about the romance last week.

It likely coincided with Justin and Selena jetting off on a private plane for some kind of vacation, as reported by numerous outlets.

It also coincided with the news that Gomez and Bieber are apparently in couples therapy, a sign (to Mandy, at least) that the relationship is legitimate.

The stars truly are in it for the long haul, dedicated to fixing the problems that ailed past attempts at sustained banging.

This is a positive step for the singers, of course.

It’s a healthy sign that they acknowledge the need for professional help in order to move forward.

But Selena’s mother and other members of her family continue to hold a grudge against Bieber, considering all the ways he’s hurt their loved one in the past.

TMZ describes Justin as an emotional “trigger” for Mandy.

Therefore, police officers were sent to an Los Angeles area hotel last week to do a welfare check on Selena’s mother.

She agreed to be transported to a local hospital for further evaluation, the results of which are not known at this time; although we can confirm that Mandy was released the same day.

Selena Gomez is loved by her mother, who has a few (dozen) concerns about Justin Bieber.

Mother and daughter have reportedly reached a truce in which the former is allowing the latter some freedom to decide what she wants.

It’s pretty clear she wants Bieber, however.

She always has, despite a recent long-term relationship with The Weeknd.

It came to an end in late October, allegedly because Bieber had decided that he really did love Selena and feared he would lose her forever after he learned she needed a kidney transplant.

Interestingly, meanwhile, Bieber’s mother told People Magazine this month that she positively adores Gomez.

“We have a special bond so I think she’s precious,” Pattie Mallette told the publication, adding:

“I support anything [he does]… if he loves her, I love her.”


NeNe Leakes: I Had a REAL Breakdown, People!

NeNe Leakes has not had a great week.

A few days ago, the reality star stepped into some scalding hot water after she responded to a heckler at a stand-up show by telling her she hopes she gets raped by her Uber drive.

Yeah: YIKES!

After receiving some well-deserved backlash for this remark, Leakes was fired from The Great Xscape Tour and sources have said she may also be let go from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

NeNe proceeded to issue a heartfelt apology, saying on Instagram:

“I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend…

“As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used.”

Pretty straightforward and, really, all NeNe could say given the circumstances, right?

But with the criticism increasing and her career in jeopardy, Leakes then recoded a video in which she bawled her eyes out and REALLY apologized.

“I never want to cause harm to anybody else, not in that kind of way,” she said this time around, adding:

“Everybody who know me knows that I never would want that to happen.”

nene comment

So… days later, how is Leakes feeling about everything right now?

Pretty good, but it got ugly there for a bit.

“A lot of people know me as NeNe who’s laughing and talking, a lot of don’t know me as NeNe who would break down,” Leakes said on Instagram last night, expounding as follows:

“I actually had a real breakdown.”

Don’t panic, however, fans.

NeNe says she’s in a much better place now.

“Trust and believe, I’m so okay, I’m in a great place today,” she said.

“I can’t say I haven’t been in a great place these last few days. I’m so okay with everything, I just haven’t talked a lot or spoken out a lot.”

The Bravo star was scheduled to host a November concert featuring girl group Xscape (including her Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Kandi Burruss).

However, the group announced yesterday that they were “dismayed” by the remark Leakes made.

“Yesterday I got a little bit emotional. I have never said anything that the heckler said to me. All the girls on the tour with me know what happened,” Leakes continued on Instagram.

She concluded optimistically, stating:

“I plan on not letting anyone take my joy. I created my own show because I wanted to get out and express some of the things that I have inside of me.

“I don’t consider myself a comedian, I always say that. I’ve said that since the day I first started. I just consider myself a s–t talker, a funny lady. I never imagined ever, ever, ever stepping on stage and somebody screaming out ‘Go kill yourself’ to me.

“It literally took me somewhere else, I apologize. I’ve let that go.”

So… NeNe is mostly sorry, yet also wants everyone to know that the heckler told her to commit suicide.

We can understand how that could be traumatizing.

We can’t understand ever making a rape joke, though.

And we definitely can’t understand hiring NeNe Leakes to do a stand-up act.


Kanye West: How He’s Doing Nearly One Year After Mental Breakdown

Can you believe it’s almost been one whole year since Kanye West had his breakdown?

It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long at all, but then again, time flies when you have as much drama as the Kardashian family does.

Seriously, in the time since Kanye’s breakdown, he and Kim have found a surrogate and are expecting their third child, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have gotten pregnant.

The whole family has had a falling out with Caitlyn Jenner, Scott Disick has been on his scariest downward spiral yet.

Kendall Jenner has found herself in a series of pickles, and there have been more plastic surgery rumors than you can shake a stick at, for the whole lot of them.

There’s been a ton of stuff happening with these people, — keeping up with them takes more than a lame one-hour television show, we’ll tell you that much.

With that constant stream of information on these people, it makes it hard to remember what happened when, or to keep tabs on the family members with less of a public presence.

And remember, ever since that breakdown of his, Kanye has mostly stayed out of the limelight.

But thanks to a wonderful new report from Us Weekly, we have an update on Kanye and his mental health.

And great news: he’s doing great!

“Kanye is in a good place right now,” a source claims. “He’s working on his music and laying low.”

Not only that, but “He’s been focused on staying calm and not doing anything to mess his mindset up. He’s in the zone.”

“He’s the best he’s ever been — he’s very stable,” the source continues.

“There haven’t been any manic outbursts. You’re going to see a calm Kanye who is taking it day by day.”

On another happy note, the insider adds that “He and Kim are stronger than ever,” too.

Not too bad, huh? Especially considering that not too long ago, Kanye was allegedly suffering from severe mental illness and you couldn’t get on the internet without seeing stories about his impending divorce.

We still don’t know all the details about what happened last year, or if there was any real truth to all the Kimye divorce rumors.

We do know that in the weeks before his breakdown, Kanye was behaving pretty strangely — he bashed former close friends Jay Z and Beyonce in emotional rants during concerts.

He also expressed his support for Donald Trump more than once, which was alarming, to say the least.

Some reports claimed that his issues were simply.due to exhaustion, while others claimed that he was depressed and paranoid and possibly violent.

A popular theory was that Kanye was deeply shaken by Kim’s Paris robbery, and that the anniversary of his mother’s death just a few weeks later pushed him over the edge.

As for the divorce rumors, most sources said that Kim and Kanye’s problems were also started by the robbery — she felt like he wasn’t there for her like she needed him to be because of his own issues.

But hey, at this point, all of this seems like water under the bridge, right?

Congrats on all the progress, Kanye!


Kris Jenner: Exploiting Scott Disick Breakdown with Ratings-Driven Intervention?!

Scott Disick‘s battle with addiction nearly resulted in the end of his life. Now Kris Jenner is reportedly doing what any parental figure would:

Exploit it and turn it into a dramatic reality TV storyline!

On August 18, Scott was placed on a 5150 psych hold after being rushed to the hospital, apparently having suffered a massive breakdown.

The 34-year-old dad of three has been spiraling out of control for years, especially since breaking up with Kourtney Kardashian in 2015.

Despite multiple trips to rehab, and a health incident that sounds as scary as it can get, Disick continues to party hard even as we speak.

That’s what has Kris Jenner scrambling to save his life.

With the cameras rolling of course, because come on.

Says an insider close to the famous Momager:

“Kris wants to stage an intervention for Scott, and wants to do it on-camera to be used in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

Hey, if the guy needs an intervention anyway …

Lest you think that Jenner is interested in only ratings here, the insider says she is obviously interested in more than just ratings here.

“She is also trying everything she can to get him into rehab. She wants Scott to be there for her grandchildren,” says the source.

“Kris knows that if he keeps going, he will die.”

“His drinking has ruined his life, his relationship with Kourtney and his friendship with Khloe,” laments the insider. “It’s really sad.”

That much is obvious, as is the fact that the guy could use someone – something – to knock some sense into him, cameras or not.

Will this actually do the job, though?

This is not a man who has been open to change before, even as his health deteriorates and his dependence on alcohol persists.

“Scott started using drugs and alcohol as a way to escape from his problems,” an unidentified friend of Scott’s told Radar Online.

“However, the more he continued to drink, the worse his other problem became,” which is where this story gets even more dire.

People close to Scott say he poses a danger to himself, not because of erratic behavior, but because of life-saving medications.

Or, specifically, refusing to take them.

For months, we’ve heard whispers that Disick is suffering from liver disease attributed to years of heavy drinking, culminating this summer.

As such, the medication that Scott needs is necessary due to the self-destructive fashion in which he has chosen to go about his existence.

This, another friend says, was why he ended up involuntarily hospitalized a month ago, and why the worst may be yet to come, scarily.

“Kourtney [Kardashian] and Scott know that the incident was caused by him not taking medications that he is prescribed,” says one insider.

She and Kris Jenner reportedly called the police when they realized that Scott had gone off his medication while continuing to drink.

Knowing he was a danger to himself and others, authorities placed him under a 72-hour psychiatric hold, the longest allowable by law.

Disick reportedly resumed taking his meds after that, though he also kept drinking, leaving family and friends praying he comes to his senses.


Kanye West Accused of Drug Use, Heavy Drinking Prior to Breakdown

In November of last year, Kanye West was hospitalized after suffering an emotional breakdown.

The situation forced Kanye to cancel several tour dates, a necessary decision that cost several parties (including West) millions in revenue.

The tour was fully insured, but now, Radar Online is reporting that the insurance company is refusing to pay up, claiming that Kanye violated the terms of their agreement by engaging in heavy drinking and illegal drug use in the months prior to his breakdown.

Kanye is reportedly claiming that Lloyd’s of London is citing his marijuana use as their sole reason for backing out of the claim, but according to recently-filed court documents, there’s more to it than that.

“This Insurance does not cover any loss directly or indirectly arising out of, contributed to by, or resulting from the non-appearance at an Insured Event of any Insured Person due to: the possession or use of illegal drugs by an Insured Person, the effects on an Insured Person of prescription drugs when not taken as medically prescribed, the consumption of alcohol which renders and Insured Person(s) unfit to perform contracted duties,” reads a counterclaim filed by the company on August 29.

“The Insured’s or any Insured Person’s lack of care, diligence or prudent behavior, the result of which would increase the risk, and/or likelihood of a loss, hereunder.”

So from the sound of it, Lloyd’s is planning to argue that Kanye was not only using “Illegal drugs” (which may just refer to marijuana), he was also abusing prescription medications, and drinking so heavily that it interfered with his ability to make scheduled appearances.

Kanye’s breakdown already poked some holes in the carefully constructed facade of his marriage to Kim Kardashian, but in a way, it also served to humanize the couple.

We always knew their life couldn’t be as perfect as they tried to make it seem, so when they publicly endured a particularly brutal rough patch (Kanye’s hospitalization came on the heels of Kim being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.) they both earned the sympathy of fans and instantly became more relatable.

Public image is always at the forefront of the Kardashians’ minds, so it should come as no surprise that Kim weathered that storm with grace and ease.

However, if it turns out that Kanye’s breakdown was drug-fueled and that fact was carefully covered up, it may result in a scandal that even Kris Jenner can’t spin in her family’s favor.

Even Kanye’s biggest detractors would agree that for all of his flaws, the rapper has maintained an admirably honest relationship with the public.

If it turns out he was battling various substance abuse issues and disguising his struggles as a mental health issue, then that reputation will take a serious hit.

Kanye shouldn’t be shamed for struggling with addiction (if that’s really what’s going on here), but one of the perils of a career that’s based on candor with the public is that it doesn’t leave much room for secrets.’

And the insurance company who’s set to square off with Kanye in court is accusing him of keeping some very big secrets.


Amber Portwood Suffers Breakdown on Teen Mom OG: What Happened?!

Amber Portwood … well, the girl has been through some stuff.

She got pregnant at 16, of course, and from there she dealt with severe addiction problems, severe relationship problems, really just so many problems.

Eventually she went to prison and got clean and straightened out a bit, but soon after she returned home, she began dating disgusting douchebag, Matt Baier, and so everything has gone all to hell again.

But while we know so much about all of that, one thing that Amber doesn't talk about much is her father, who tragically passed away in 2014.

In this new sneak peek from Teen Mom OG, she's changing that.

In the clip, Amber is hanging with Matt, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra down in Puerto Rico.

They're lounging around outside, and a producer points out that Amber and Catelynn seem more like cousins than reality show co-stars.

Amber points out that that's because they have similar histories — parents who worked multiple jobs just to pay the bills, and parents who suffer from addiction.

She adds that her own mother had to work so much because her father was an alcoholic, but she quickly adds that she loved her dad very much, and she doesn't want to say anything bad about him.

Matt chimes in to talk about his own alcoholic father, and Amber, who's becoming visibly upset, asks if they can change the subject.

Her gem of a guy ignores her, and he only stops when she starts crying.

"I took care of my dad when he was f-cking dying," Amber tells them through tears, but instead of continuing the story, she walks away, telling them "I can't f-cking do this."

As she walks off with a producer, Matt explains to Catelynn and Tyler that her father's death "hits her sometimes, like it'll hit her out of nowhere, and it breaks her heart.

Meanwhile, Amber discusses her father, who died awaiting a liver transplant — his own was destroyed after years of drinking.

"He told me he had eight months to live," she says, but "he f-cking lived for ten years. He was in pain every f-cking day, and that man stayed alive and told me he was waiting for me to get married."

Unfortunately, he didn't make it. How heartbreaking is this?

Amber's story also does the impossible in that it makes last week's Las Vegas wedding disaster with Matt even worse.

If her father was trying to live long enough to see her get married, then you know that has to be a huge deal for her. And since Matt is obviously aware of her feelings about her father, he had to know that.

So for him to try to force her to get married in Las Vegas, away from her family and while she obviously has some bittersweet feelings about the idea of a wedding …

It's really just reprehensible, even more so than before.

What the incredibly sad clip below:
