So you know how people have been talking about how Tyler Baltierra should leave Catelynn Lowell for a long time now?
Yeah, it’s this whole thing.
It’s weird, because in the beginning of their reality television career, they were this adorable couple who made the painful decision to place their child for adoption because it was best for her.
They were definitely Teen Mom fan favorites … so what happened?
Things had been going downhill for a while, after Catelynn and Tyler neglected to do the things they’d planned to do after they had their first child.
They never went to college, they never did all the things they said they were going to do to better themselves and change their lives.
But then they had their second child, Nova, who they obviously kept.
They also sent Nova to spend the night at Catelynn’s mother’s house multiples times a week, and they once even let Tyler’s father babysit her while they went out of the country.
Fans will remember that Catelynn’s mother and Tyler’s father were pretty much the main reasons they thought they couldn’t raise their first child …
So opinions began to change, definitely.
Then, last year, Catelynn checked into a treatment center for six weeks to deal with suicide thoughts she began having after a miscarriage.
And no one thought poorly about her for that.
But then she came home, and a few weeks after that, she went back for another six weeks.
Lots of people really thought poorly about her then.
The thing was that she didn’t seem open to trying to get help at home — at outpatient treatment center in their state, therapy, nothing.
Even after Tyler explained how hard it was on their daughter to have her gone for so long, she wasn’t moved.
She even seemed kind of cold about it — she didn’t tell Nova she would be gone for over a month again, and she told Tyler that she’d “manage” without her.
When we saw all of this happen on Teen Mom OG, Tyler was obviously frustrated by it all.
He said at one point that he was beginning to think that he and Cate weren’t right for each other anymore.
In more recent episodes, he called her behavior “repulsing,” and he’s really just seemed over her altogether.
As he complained to some friends, “marriage is a bitch.”
You might be thinking something along the lines of “hold up, aren’t they about to have another kid?”
And it’s true — Catelynn is pregnant right now, and in March she and Tyler will welcome another daughter.
But on the show, Tyler hasn’t seemed super excited about the whole thing because, as anyone who knows anything about any of this can see, the timing just isn’t good.
He even claimed that they’d been doing everything they could to prevent a pregnancy.
What we’re saying with all of this is that just a few months ago, things were really bad for these two, and perhaps they still are.
So bad that Tyler recently sort of commented that he deserves better than Catelynn.
In a recent post on the Teen Mom OG Instagram page, someone left a comment complaining about how Cate had been refusing to watch the show with Tyler, something his therapist reccommended.
“I cannot STAND Cate,” that person wrote.
“I hope he moves on from her at some point. He deserves a real woman, not a little girl.”
And Tyler liked that comment.
It got a lot of attention, because of course it did, but now, Tyler is claiming that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.
“OMG people!” he tweeted to kick off his explanation.
“That was a comment that Cate’s dad replied to & since I got his notification I scrolled to see what he had responded to & must have hit the like button.”
“Why would I like a negative comment about my wife with her dad on the thread?” he asked.
“You people are psycho lmao!”
Yeah, so that’s not terribly convincing, huh?
Sure, lots of people probably accidentally like things all the time on social media, but if it’s something like this, they usually just un-like it, you know?
Besides, the word is that the girl who wrote that original comment has made it clear that Catelynn’s dad never replied to it, so that’s something.
Look, maybe Tyler’s telling the truth, and he really did like that comment accidentally.
Or maybe he really has been feeling like he deserves a better partner than Catelynn.
Either way, he’s made it perfectly clear that he has no plans to leave her, no matter what.
That’s … good? Unfortunate?
At this point, it’s hard to say.
But good luck, Baltierras, however things turn out!
