I was just searching for Teen Mom OG posts to pull tags and it occurred to me I never recapped this show before. I have no idea why they felt the need to start me off with two shows in one night but I’m going to do a quickie recap of both shows together. I just ate a big bowl of spaghetti so there is no telling if I will get through both of these without a food coma coming on. Well, I made it through the first one, but I am going to do the second one on a second post, probably sometime later today. It’s break time.
The second we see Farrah she is showing her ass. Last time we saw her she was blessing out the producer, Larry and treating him as if he were gum on her shoe. There was Farrah has a porta potty right in front of her house because she will not let the crew use her bathroom. You need to understand that the crew has stayed basically the same over the many years this
show has filmed. They are not strangers they are people who have been in their lives since high school. All the other girls have strong bonds with product. But not Farrah. Surely her HOA would fine her for this nonsense.
Farrah has purchased herself a fourteen carat (total weight) engagement ring. She can’t figure out why Simon hasn’t proposed to her and paid her back for it. We only see a photo of the ring, we do not see an actual ring. And yet, Simon goes shopping with Simon for a house in LA. Farrah is going to hire an au pair to travel with her and take Sophia to school, and basically parent her. I think this is a fabulous idea. Sophia needs a parent.
Farah has a pod cast. The caller asks Larry why he has a porn actress on Teen Mom when she such a horrible role model. Larry is such a nice guy he says positive things about Farrah. He is the one Farrah literally pushes around the set.
In LA, Farrah has her friend Jenna who is clearly in the adult entertainment business drop by for a chat. Jenna’s face though. I guess no one ever notices that. As they are talking, Farrah has some guy styling her hair. It’s clear this is literally his first time holding a curling iron. I have no idea what they are talking about because I am waiting for him to be able to successfully wrap some hard around the curling shaft. So far, not happening.
I hate watching these people buy new houses. Their current house is lovely and yet Tyler wants a more open floor plan. Must be nice. If you read my Catfish posts, you would know that all last season I was obsessed with the catfish and the mark having these pumpkin colored walls. Catelynn and Tyler have them too. At first I thought they were painting them when they did the whole staging of the houses for filming to remove all the artwork and copyright stuff from the wall, but now I think it is done with computer graphics. If that is how they do it then why does everyone have the same pumpkin color?
Catelynn still has postpartum depression. Yet they are talking about having a really big family. She tells Tyler that she is going to go back to Weight Watchers. Tyler tries to point out she is currently eating Mexican takeout. Catelynn thinks that is seven points.
Nothing has changed at Amber’s where there are still dogs using the apartment as a toilet. So gross. One of the dogs peed on a producer.
Amber is still negotiating the child support she is supposed to pay Gary as well as the joint custody. Nothing has been signed. Later we hear Gary’s side of the story where he says that Amber continues to refuse to sign anything.
She seems over the fact that Matt has at least seven kids that we know of. After I typed that, Amber and Matt take horseback riding and Matt gets a phone call saying that another woman has come forward claiming he is the father of her child and he broke up with her when she was five months pregnant. Later Matt is hold a small baby at Amber’s cousin’s house. He doesn’t even know how to support the baby’s head.
Taylor is in the market for a ring to propose to Maci with. Taylor went to the tabloids to call out MTV on editing last season because the show made it look like Maci was pressuring him to propose. He says that is not Maci at all and she has never put any pressure on him. About that same time, Tyler was on social media saying that MTV made it look like Catelynn was pissed about the stripper at his bachelor party. He says that was fake, they both agreed that they both could have strippers at their party and there was no stripper issue.
Taylor proposed to Maci on the beach while they were in LA working on an MTV project. She got to show off the ring to all the girls at the MTV studio afterward. Even Farrah was kind and supportive. The engaged couple seems very happy and anxious to tell Bentley who is in LA for the show. Bentley cries. Ryan seems, well like Ryan.
I will recap the second episode soon. I just need a little nap or a break or a different show to recap first.
