It’s the episode we’ve been waiting for, but you wouldn’t know from the episode guide where Farrah is not mentioned at all.
I’m not sure why Catelynn goes to rehab in Tuscon. It’s a beautiful place but it is hot AF in the summer time. Poor Tyler just wanted to camp out in the desert for a night or two before coming back to deal with all of his other issues but for some reason he could not. It that was a production choice they ought to be ashamed of himself. That sounds that the best thing for him.
Back at the house, Tyler tries to hold the business down but as he is working his sister, her boyfriend and he kid come barging in. I can’t remember whose parent kept Nova while he took Catelynn to rehab, but he really doesn’t have any good choices. It looks like she brought Nova and the dog back. Tyler is super stressed. He is packing orders and being very standoffish to everyone. Amber does not offer to help Tyler pack boxes. Next we see Tyler brushing Nova’s hair and getting her dressed.
Since Catelynn is gone, we are spending a lot of time with Tyler’s mother, sister, nephew and his sister’s boyfriend. The boyfriend just got out of jail after spending 85 days there. He is not just on an ankle bracelet, there is some sort of actual tether on his leg while he his home. What the hell did he do? It looks like Tyler’s mother’s husband is there too. We are supposed to believe that Amber passed on rehab because she can get off Adderall on her own. I’m not sure Adderall is the problem. She says she is getting ready to get married and have kids with the guy with his leg tied to the wall. She agrees to wait a year to get married but says she is not going to use condoms. Tyler talks to her later about getting married and he suggests she wait. He says he wished Billy had a car and a job at least.
Catelynn videochats with Tyler. She seems to be in very good spirits. Catelynn asked Nova to color her some pictures and she dashed off to do it. The call ended pretty quickly and Nova had a meltdown because they hung up before she could show her the pictures. Oh God. Nova starts crying for her mommy and I can’t take it.
Amber and Andrew are doing an “Around The World” themed nursery. Why didn’t Farrah think of that?As soon as the time comes to put some paint on the nursery wall, just to choose a color, Amber suddenly had the baby kick or something and had to lay down on her giant sloth. Before I could even make a joke about that, she did it for me. She said, “This is my spirit animal.” Indeed.
The paternity test has arrived in the mail to finally let Gary know who is father is. Maybe. Jody, you are NOT the father. Wow. Gary already regrets taking the test. Christina and Gary both cry. Gary is dreading telling Jody and hopes it doesn’t change anything. He rips the Band-aid off pretty quick when he tells Jody. Jody paid child support for Gary all these years. Jody is clearly sad he is not the dad.
Gary and Jody meet with his mother. She’s an awful person. I don’t think she is going to give Gary a name. Have we ever seen her before? Is she in the grandkid’s life?
Holy Shit! Maci got picked for Naked & Afraid? They didn’t say the name of the show, but she’d headed to Nicaragua soon and she is trying to train for it. I just dashed over to our friends at The Ashley and of course she had the exclusive. In the new season that starts this month, there will be a celebrity version of the show. I JUST had to take Naked & Afraid off my DVR because they kept on running “New” three hours of shows in one block all the damn time and is totally screwed with my DVR. I think the real night is Sunday but we will have to look all of that up on the Discovery Channel website. Maci just said it is a 14 day challenge. The real people version is 21. Also, Ashley said they will get to bring more than one survival item. She has a full day of training camp coming up. She is super nervous about the naked part. I am so ready for this crossover.
At survivor training, Maci struggles to make fire with dry tinder and a flint. Bentley doesn’t think Maci can survive. Maci reassures him that if her partner taps out, she will be just fine. She’d been on her own before when her partner “tapped out” and she made it through just fine.
Morgan and Farrah are on the way to have a little chat with Farrah about the way she treats production, and how her porn career does not fall in line with the show’s expectations for her behavior.
Farrah says that she doesn’t think she is disrespectful and rude to production. Then she says that she doesn’t think that a web cam is the same as a porn. Morgan says that Farrah can choose to work in the adult industry is she wants to, but they will be unable to film with her moving forward if she does. Morgan says this is coming from the higher-ups, meaning it’s not the production team making the decisions it’s Viacom. Farrah has since filed a $5 million dollar law suit against Viacom and some other named defendants. The guys leave so Farrah has some time to think about her decision.
Farrah calls them back that night and tells them pornos and webcams and healthy sex lives will always be important to her whether she is filming or not. She says she has a lot of paths in her live, she’s only 26. Basically, she chose the web cam thing. And then of course the web cam people didn’t want her anymore because without Teen Mom, she’s a nobody already. BTW, TMZ posted photos of her and Sophia at some sort of fashion show that was very crowded and Farrah literally took a hard fall right in front of everyone including Sophia. That poor girl.
At the end of the show they show a couple of illiterate social media posts from Farrah talking about how she is glad she isn’t on the show anymore. She sure made it look like she quit. The episode ended with a black and white screen that said, “Farrah no longer films for Teen Mom.”
