Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Reveal Heartbreaking Mental Health Problems

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been through so much in their lives.

Just way, way too much.

Catelynn has April for a mother, and we’ve seen April be mentally and verbally abusive to her on several occasions in the early seasons of Teen Mom.

Tyler has Butch for a father, and we know it wasn’t easy on him to watch his dad go in and out of jail for literally his entire life.

But because they had such intense issues with their own parents, they were able to make the remarkably responsible, admirable decision to place their daughter Carly for adoption when Catelynn became pregnant at 16.

Unfortunately, even though it was the right thing to do, it was still obviously incredibly painful for them, and it’s clear that they still struggle with their decision somewhat, even today.

When they had their second daughter, Nova, Catelynn developed some serious postpartum depression, so much that she had to check into a treatment center.

And then when she and Tyler decided to try for another baby, she ended up having a miscarriage, which was very hard for both of them.

It was a big trigger for Cate’s depression, and she actually began considering suicide because of it, and so back to rehab she went.

Meanwhile, Tyler struggled at home, dealing with his own grief while caring for Nova and running their household.

Like we’ve said, these two have been through a lot.

But Catelynn’s been home from rehab for a few weeks now, and it looks like she and Tyler are dedicating themselves to raising awareness and bringing attention to the kinds of mental health issues they’ve been dealing with.

They’ve been talking about it on the show, of course, and on social media, and now they’re taking the time to do interviews on the subject.

Earlier this week, they made an appearance on a podcast called Voices for Change 2.0, and they really shared a lot.

And here we were, thinking their story couldn’t get any more heartbreaking …

During the podcast, they both revealed the mental illnesses they’ve been diagnosed with, with Catelynn explaining that she’s dealing with a few different things.

“It’s panic disorder, PTSD — I like to call myself a trauma survivor — and it’s depression, but it’s co-occurring depression or something like that,” she said.

“It will go away and it will come back with the panic disorder.”

She also said that it “kind of surprised” her to be diagnosed with PTSD, but that “it makes a lot of sense too.”

Honestly, if you’ve watched those first few seasons of Teen Mom, a diagnosis of PTSD makes perfect sense.

From the way she was raised to that super painful adoption, it’s actually pretty surprising she didn’t get that diagnosis sooner.

As for Tyler, he revealed that he first felt depressed when he was just 11 years old.

A big issue for him was his father “going in and out of prison all the time,” but he said that “at 11, though, that’s when I attempted suicide and failed.”

If you blocked that horrible story out of your head, he’s been very open about his suicide attempt in the past — he tried to hang himself but it didn’t work, and he had to walk around school with rope burns around his neck.

“After that my mom started to take me to therapy,” he recounted. “I was on anti-depressants a bit.”

But in the past few months he’s been going back to therapy, and he said that people there told him that he could be bipolar.

“That was pretty shocking to figure out,” he admitted, “but also it made a lot of sense back to when I was younger … But that was a lot to obviously digest that day.”

During the podcast, Catelynn also discussed why she felt comfortable airing so much of what she’s been through in the past few months on Teen Mom OG.

“I talked a lot about it with my therapist when I was in treatment,” she said, “my whole thing about me being vulnerable and sharing it. I could have said no to the producers and the people who work on the show and they would have totally understood.”

“If I was like, ‘Listen, I’m going through a rough time and I’m not filming it and I don’t want it to be aired,'” she said that MTV would have respected her wishes.

“But my whole thing is, if I can save somebody’s life and show them that it’s OK to not be OK sometimes and there’s things that you can do to get help, that’s the only reason I did it,” she continued.

“I wanted to bring awareness to the mental health issues and show that it’s real.”

She said that “Some people think, ‘Oh, you’re depressed, get the hell out of bed,’ but no, that’s not how it works. I just wanted to shine a light on that.”

It seems like she’s doing a great job so far, and we couldn’t be prouder of them both for taking care of themselves so well!


Khloe Kardashian Gender Reveal: What’s She Having?!?

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians Seasin 14 finale was titled “The Gender Reveal.”

For what reason?

Because Khloe Kardashian learned during the episode whether she was having a boy or a girl baby in a few weeks!

She learned this vital piece of information from half-sister Kylie Jenner for some scripted reason, as Kylie called Keeks while the latter was on vacation in San Francisco.

(Would a doctor even tell the results to anyone aside from his or her patient? We’re pretty sure not. But whatever. This is TV, people!)

“You’re having a girl!” a pumped-up Kylie tells Khloe over the phone.

“You’re lying!” responds a stunned Khloe.

“I’m not lying,” Kylie replies. “I’m so excited for you Khloe!”

But Khloe can’t reciprocate this feeling.

She sounds very disappointed with the news, saying it comes as a major surprise, despite there being just two possibilities for what this answer could have been.

“I don’t feel like I’m having a girl,” she says.

Kim, who was on the trip with Khloe, then tried to comfort her sister, saying, she, too, was sad to discover she was having a girl the first time she was pregnant.

“It’s OK, I cried when I found out North was going to be a girl too,” she explained.

“I don’t feel like I’m having a girl at all. I’m like in a state of shock,” Khloe reiterated, sticking to whatever words were penned for her by producers that would milk this moment for all the drama possible.

On Twitter after the finale aired, Khloe said she had a boy name picked out, which is part of the reason why she felt so let down by the truth.

She also tried to expound on her initial reaction on the episode itself:

“When you have your mind made up as to what you’re having, like everyone told me you’re going to feel what you’re having and you’ll just kind of know.

“And then when you find out it’s the complete opposite it’s just a shock.

“I just was convinced that I was having a boy, so to be having a girl it’s just like, ‘OK that wasn’t what I thought was going on.'”

Khloe then called her mother and went over the whole story again.

“I’m really hoping Kylie’s gonna say she’s lying and like I’m really having a boy,” Kardashian said, still unable to process this truly unexpected developments.

Replied Kris Jenner:

“Khloe, the only thing I wanted in life, the only thing, was a boy. Three times, and I got the three of you: a man is much more attached to a girl.”

(Ummmm, what: did she just tell Khloe to be psyched because this means Tristan Thompson won’t leave her?!?)

“Totally, and I know Tristan will be in love and I’ll be in love and she’ll be so cute and whatever,” Khloe said in return trying to convince herself.

“This will be the love of his life, no offense to you, but this will be the love of his life,” Kris tells Khloe, to which she joked:

“Well, then I’m going to get jealous. I’m jealous. Well, then I don’t like that. I don’t like her.”

keeks on twitter

It took Khloe a little while to get there, but as you can see above, she’s now down with her kid’s gender.

“I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with Chicago and Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess,” Tweeted the mother-to-be.

This will be Khloe’s first child and SHE is due some time in March or early April.

Kim also reacted to the gender reveal on social media, writing:

kim excited

Khloe’s baby will join Kim’s two daughter Chicago and Kylie’s daughter Stormi as new female additions to this famous family.

What do you think of Khloe’s reaction to the news?

Was it weird or cute? Plotted ahead of time or legitimately spontaneous?

And, most importantly, what do you think she’ll name her daughter?!?


Khloe Kardashian Gender Reveal: It’s Shocking!

Khloe Kardashian is pregnant and having either a boy or a girl.

This is almost definitely a fact.

But we can't say for certain because the following preview for Sunday's season 14 finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians teases Khloe on the verge of telling her family about the gender of her impending child…

… only for Kourtney Kardashian to react in total and complete shock.

"Do you want to know what I'm having?" Khloe asks in this sneak peek, resulting in Kourtney yelling in reply:

"I'm shocked!"

Perhaps Kourtney was really confident Khloe was having a daughter? Or a son? And this news in the opposite of that expectation?

Perhaps Khloe is having some sort of alien robot?

Perhaps this clip was edited and Kourtney's reaction doesn't actually follow Khloe's major reveal?

We'll need to tune in and watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online or on our television screens in a few days to find out!

Khloe is about 31 weeks along with her first child.

The father, of course, is Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Tristan Thompson.

Unlike half-sister Kylie, who welcomed her first child a few weeks ago, Khloe has been rather open and candid about her pregnancy.

Heck, she even discussed pregnancy sex and how it's not the same as regular sex.

And she sounded beyond excited back when she confirmed the baby news.

"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" wrote Khloe as a caption to an Instagram photo of her baby bump, adding on December 20:

"I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing.

"I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!"

It really is incredible, isn't it?

Check out the following preview for a look at what's to come on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians finale:

Wendy Williams Rips Kim Kardashian for “Selfish” Baby Reveal

We’ve despised Wendy Williams for a number of years now.

But we truly despise Wendy Williams these days, and here’s why:

Because she’s been forcing us to defend Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

Any regular reader of The Hollywood Gossip must be aware that we aren’t huge fans of these women or their family members.

They aren’t bad people or anything; it’s just that Kim and company are self-obsessed and represent all that’s wrong with a culture which rewards pretty much anyone with a large social media following.

Williams, however, has been going on the attack against Kim and Kyle for weeks now.

It started back when she slammed Kylie’s then-unborn baby as ugly.

From there, she took Kardashian to task for her latest round of naked photos, referring to the mother of three as “desperate” for snapping these images.

Now, Williams has slammed both Kim and Kylie for reasons related to the latter having a daughter.

On Sunday, Jenner came out and announced that she gave birth back on February 1, releasing a heartfelt statement at the time that explained her nine-month silence on her pregnancy.

She also unveiled the following video.

It centered on Kylie’s path to parenthood and included with it our very first look at Kim and her third child, a girl named Chicago West.

Click PLAY to see glimpses of Chicago at the hospital with her aunt:

Instead of seeing this as adorable (or simply ignoring it because it’s none of her business), Williams used the above footage as the basis for tearing into Kim once again.

“Also in the video we saw Chicago West for the first time, which is Kim and Kanye’s new daughter, which I thought was selfish,” Williams said on Monday on air, explaining her reasoning as follows:

“This is Kylie’s moment to do Kylie’s thing and then Kim just showed up with the baby. I think it’s selfish.” 

We don’t think Kim just showed up with the baby or anything like that.

This was an 11-minute video that includes a variety of scenes that depicted Kylie spending time with her loved ones.

Part of that time was comprised of Kim visiting her sister and bringing her brand new baby along with her… and someone recorded this visit and included it along with MANY other scenes in the video.

We fail to see the big deal here.

Then again, we aren’t Wendy Williams.

We don’t make a living by tossing out unfounded, cruel opinions about others on a regular basis.

“I thought [the video] was cute,” Williams added. “But, she’s only 20, what a mess.”

Look, we’ve cracked plenty of jokes about Kylie’s unplanned pregnancy.

And she is absolutely on the younger side when it comes to being a parent.

But we’d never label any stranger’s situation a “mess,” not when we know so little about it, not when it involves a beautiful child… and not when the 20-year old has millions of dollars and can afford help around the clock.

We’re pretty sure there are far messier situations than this around the world.

Due to Wendy’s constant barrage of insults against her family, Kris Jenner has reportedly told her kids not to ever appear on Williams’ terrible talk show.

“Kris is beyond angry at Wendy,” a source told Hollywood Life this week.

“There was a time when they were on good terms, but not anymore. Wendy is dead to Kris, she’s dead to the whole family.

Adds this insider:

“Kris has put a lifelong ban on them ever appearing on Wendy‘s show or anything she’s affiliated with. And they’re taking it a step further and asking all their friends to boycott her show as well.

“They would love to see her cancelled and off the air. This is war.”

And, for one, we’re on the side of Kris Jenner.


Joseph and Kendra Dugger Gender Reveal: They’re Having A…

Joseph and Kendra Dugger have some very exciting news to share.

Already having confirmed they’re expecting their first baby this year, the TLC star found a unique way over the weekend to announce the gender of this baby.

Were they feeling blue at the time?

Or pretty in pink?

This young Duggar couple made the reveal in an especially fun manner, as first reported by Us Weekly.

You see, Joseph’s brother, John David Duggar, is an Arkansas constable and part-time officer with the Tontitown Police Department.

This will soon become relevant, don’t worry. We’re not just bragging on his behalf.

Using his connections, John David organized a gender reveal unlike any we’ve seen before, using tannerite mixed with a certain color powder that would burst into the air once the explosive denotated.

(Do not try this at home, people. Make sure you have a professional standing by at all times.)

So… the Duggar family stood approximately 20 yards behind John David – who has undergone extensive firearm safety and weapons training – as he shot a bullet 200 yards into the substance, which is commonly used in target practice.

Blue powder subsequently burst into the air.

See a snapshot of the reveal below:

gender pic

You know what this means, right?

Yup, a bundle of baby boy joy is on the way for Kendra and Joseph!

“Wow! We are so happy to learn that our firstborn is a boy!” the couple told Us Weekly, adding via statement:

“Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy!

“Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ!”

Along with the cute picture below, Kendra and Joseph were equally psyched when sharing news of the former expecting back in December.

This is what they said at the time:

“During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves! Wow, it’s so exciting!!!

“We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God.

“It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!”

Joseph is only 22 years old and Kendra is only 19 years old.

Even by Duggar standards, they are pretty young to become parents.

But this how members of the large family role, as anyone who has chronicled their controversial lives on television knows very well.

The two have known each other for a very long time, at least, having met in church way back when they were children.

Joseph popped the big question to Kendra at sister Joy-Anna’s wedding last May and then they got married in September at the First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.

Making the event extra special?

They were married by Kendra’s dad, who is a pastor.

Speaking of Joy-Anna, meanwhile, she is also pregnant.

Based on her due date and her baby bump and rumors flying around the Internet, however, this pregnancy comes equipped with a built-in scandal:

Did she and Austin Forsyth have sex before marriage, make a child and then have a shotgun wedding?

Such shocking chatter refuses to die.

Either way, however, we send our best wishes to Joy-Anna and to Kendra for happy, healthy pregnancies and babies.


Kylie Jenner Pregnancy Reveal: This is How It’ll Happen!

The time is nearly here, good people of the Internet.

Your patience is about to pay off.

The questions will finally end and the rumors will cease to exist for much longer…

… because Kylie Jenner is about to reveal that she's pregnant!!!!!!

Granted, we've been fooled before – most notably by the way the family drew out its Kardashian Christmas card reveal – but what other conclusion can be drawn from the following promo?

It was released by E! and it teases a very special, two-part, two-night episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

It will be an episode "“full of Kardashian surprises," the teaser states, adding:

“Because when it comes to making announcements, the family’s got news so big we need Sunday and Monday just to cover it."

In the 40-second preview, we see Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner reacting to some apparently quite shocking news from someone off-camera.

Khloe also cannot believe her eyes and/or ears:

We also see Kylie on FaceTime, seemingly lying in bed…and definitely excited over something.

Jenner, of course, has been pregnant for months. And the Internet has known about it for months.

Yet she hasn't uttered a word about the child growing inside of her womb yet. Moreover, she's barely been seen in public or on social media.

What's she been waiting for, many have asked and wondered? Is she ashamed of being pregnant? Ashamed of her baby bump?

Might she be ashamed of baby daddy Travis Scott, who recently blew off questions about the pregnancy?

Again, no one really knows. Because neither Kylie nor any family member has said anything on the topic.

The 20-year-old reality star has been MIA from the reality show of late and didn’t appear in the family’s Christmas card, as previously mentioned.

Could this upcoming FaceTime session tell us more? We'll need to tune in and find out!

(For the known record, Khloe Kardashian is also pregnant.

And she recently said she would reveal the gender of her child on a future episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. So, indeed, many surprises are in store!)

Do you agree that the Kylie reveal is finally happening?

Watch below and then chime in!

Kylie jenner pregnancy reveal this is how itll happen

Tristan Thompson SLAMMED After Khloe Kardashian Pregnancy Reveal!

Did you hear the good news?!

Or rather, did you hear the confirmation of the good news that we’ve known for months now?!

Yesterday, Khloe Kardashian hopped on Instagram to let us all know that she is, in fact, pregnant!

She shared that cute little photo of her boyfriend and baby daddy Tristan Thompson holding onto her greased up baby bump, and she wrote a darling little message to go along with it.

“My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!” she wrote. “I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what he was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.”

“I still at times can’t believe that our love created life!” she continued. “Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages!”

“Tristan, most of all, thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time!”

Khloe also thanked her fans “for the love and positive vibes,” and explained that they’d waited to confirm the pregnancy “to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately.”

And that’s definitely fair.

She closed her precious little message by saying that she’s “so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed, and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”

And if that wasn’t sweet enough, Tristan commented on the photo, thanking Khloe for “allowing me to be apart of your journey and entering your life.”

“I’m soo happy to be on this journey together with you and creating this angel from the man above,” he told her. “Everyday I give thanks to him for bringing us together.”

“I love you soo much and I know our little angel feels the love we share together and will know that mommy and daddy loves them unconditional and forever and ever amen.”

So this is all very, very cute, right? They’re obviously in love and so happy to be having a baby together.

But let’s not forget that this time last year, Tristan had just had his first child with his ex-girlfriend, Jordy Craig.

He left Jordy while she was pregnant to get with Khloe, which … well, it’s not great.

And Twitter is not willing to anyone forget this little hiccup in Tristan and Khloe’s love story.

“Tristan Thompson is GARBAGE,” one person wrote. “Khloe Kardashian get pregnant and be ready to conquer the world. But wasn’t even there for his first born.”

“Okay sorry but I won’t get over the fact that Tristan Thompson left his PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND for Khloe and left her to raise their baby boy by herself,” another stated.

Khloe herself wasn’t free from criticism either — someone tweeted “Don’t see how y’all support Tristan Thompson & Khloe Kardashian’s relationship. He left his baby’s mother mid pregnancy & Khloe still got with him knowingly… disgusting & trifling on both ends smh.”

And if you wanted to see an even lower blow, one person wrote “I wish Tristan Thompson’s bitch ass loved his pregnant girlfriend and son the way he ‘loves’ OJ’s daughter.

Does Tristan deserve all this hate?!
