Teen Mom OG Recap: Oh, Yeah, Baby, Yeah!

Monday night on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 8, Farrah got into a nasty argument with her mom … what else is new, right?

Meanwhile, Amber found out she was expecting, and Ryan and Mackenzie celebrated a joint bachelor and bachelorette party.

There’s no need to tease that someone is pregnant on Teen Mom: OG, because in this day and age, you already know who it is.

Still, there’s always more to the story that you don’t know, and for Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon, timing was everything.

On the couple’s Hawaiian vacation, she ended up getting sick right away, immediately and then continuously feeling nauseous.

You know what that means!

Despite the exciting pregnancy test reveal (see video above), it wasn’t all sunshine last night, thanks largely to Andrew’s past.

Amber’s ex, Gary Shirley, started reading things in the news about him, and discussed Amber’s battle with depression issues.

He ultimately relayed this to his wife, Kristina Anderson, saying that as always, it’s all about Leah, his daughter with Amber.

Kristina revealed that the couple told Leah that Amber hadn’t been coming around as much because she was too depressed.

That’s fair if true.

However, Leah later asked Kristina: “If she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?”

Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell decided to get her birth control device out but wanted to keep that a secret from Tyler Baltierra.

Right away, that’s a recipe for disaster.

By the time she turns 30, she hoped to be done having children, she told her mom, and now that she’s 26, the clock’s ticking.

Cate was told by her doctor she needs to drop 15-20 pounds to get healthy, however, plus quit smoking (Tyler already has).

In the world of Farrah Abraham, she decided to take her mother and her father on a family vacation, a very nice sentiment.

At least it was, except for the fact that she neglected to tell her mom that her dad and his girlfriend would also be on hand.

Naturally, the moment Debra showed up and ran into Farrah, Sophia, Michael and his girlfriend, Amy, was beyond awkward.

Nevertheless, they somehow persevered through that and were having a cordial time with one another. Shocking, we know.

Later, though, Debra brought up Farrah’s ex-lover Simon Saran in front of Sophia, and Farrah proceded to flip her actual s–t.

As soon as Sophia was out of earshot, Farrah called Debra “an evil bitch” and said she didn’t want to speak to her anymore.

At least Soph wasn’t there for that?

Last but not least, Mackenzie Standifier and Ryan Edwards jetted off to Las Vegas for their bachelor and bachelorette parties.

There, Standifer broke down talking about her bizarre parking lot wedding to Ryan last spring where only his parents came.

Those were dark times, indeed.

Mackenzie added that at one point, she didn’t even know if he’d be alive, so thinking about a future with him seemed bleak.

Ryan, for his part, confided that he’s not sure if he’s ready for another child … making reports of them trying for a baby feel troubling.

Standifer mentioned that she invited his ex, Maci Bookout, and her husband, Taylor McKinney, to the wedding. But did she?

The invite came to “Maci Bookout” and Bentley … as in her maiden name, and without Taylor’s name appearing anywhere.

Bookout planned to bring him anyway, so we’ll see when we watch Teen Mom OG online next week if that caused any drama.

Feels like a good bet.


Kailyn Lowry Slams Jenelle Evans’ Threat to Quit: Yeah, Right!

Teen Mom 2 might be about to lose one of its most controversial stars, as Jenelle Evans has threatened to quit. The Carolina Hurricane claims that MTV is making her and her husband look bad.

Who better to weigh in on that than one of Jenelle's costars?

In the video below, you'll see Kailyn Lowry share exactly what she thinks of that. And she gets in a nice burn about Jenelle in the process.

The Jenelle Evans rant that prompted all of this was Jenelle going on Instagram to threaten to quit Teen Mom 2.

"Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for."

We know that this will shock you, folks, but Jenelle's about to get super defensive about David Eason.

"Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera they make it look as if David is hiding some weird ass s–t from the public as if he was hurting me in some way?!"

She needs to be aware that MTV can only edit so much — that fans are concerned about David Eason for a whole host of reasons?

"I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show."

That's quite a threat.

"I told Morgan it’s getting to out of hand and it’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally."

Oh, is that what's wrong?

All jokes aside, Jenelle Evans had issues before MTV ever came into her life.

"They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages."

Right … it's a reality show. Except that she's not in a cage and is, in fact, getting paid. Pretty generously, as we understand it.

"WE aren’t human beings to @mtv what-so-ever. The first screenshot of the custody episode someone posted photoshopping a hand mark on my arm. The other screenshots are pictures I’ve taken myself from the same episode… and there aren’t any hand marks."

Jenelle really didn't make it clear whether she was accusing MTV of that or just a random fan.

But then Jenelle makes it sound like she's serious about threatening to leave … and describes the way that MTV can win her back.

"Once they treat me with respect I’ll be back, if they don’t I’ll be happy with the life I’ve got. I told them this last night."

It sure sounds like Jenelle is just trying to get them to sanitize her life, right?

Because even though reality shows are told through the lens of editing, you can only take things out or maybe take a few things out of context.

(Taking too many things out of context would make the story incoherent)

Try as they might, we don't see MTV's editors being able to add things in to Teen Mom 2.

Considering that David Eason makes Jenelle's own mother worried for Jenelle and for Jenelle's children, it looks like there's more than editing behind the way that fans are viewing their relationship.

But … either Jenelle doesn't see it, or she just doesn't want to see it.

I the video below, Kailyn is asked about Jenelle's threat to quit. Kailyn starts her answer as diplomatically as she can.

"I think we all feel differently."

Sure. But 

"I have to disagree with her statement about MTV."

We'd imagine so.

"As far as I can see it, you wouldn't have stuck with the show for 8 years if that were the case."

That's a very good point. Maybe Jenelle's just huffing and puffing because she wants to defend David Eason's honor, or whatever.

"I'll leave that there."

She almost did. But remember that burn that we mentioned?

When asked if she thinks that Jenelle should stay or go, Kailyn replied with this:

"I don't care what Jenelle does."


We do have to point out that there's one thing that's different now than it was for most of Jenelle's time on Teen Mom 2:

David Eason.

If he's really as controlling as they say, maybe he's the one who's encouraging Jenelle to quit Teen Mom 2.

It's hard to see why he, or anyone, would want to close up the cash flow of that sweet Teen Mom money.

But maybe he wants the cameras off. That's a chilling thought.

What's worse is that Jenelle might give him what he wants.
