I suppose it is time to take a break from the Project Runway marathon and do some work. Don’t spoil on it though, I am taping the last three episodes and I do not remember who won!
Let’s get to these two episodes of the Teen Mom Reunion and close this season out. It looks like a really dramatic reunion!
Maci cries right away over social media coming for them all as mothers. Not so much Maci but everyone else. Bristol tears up too about the social media stuff. Amber looks like she has gained a lot of weight. Then Kaitlyn and Amber start bawling over Amber’s depression and suicidal thoughts.
Everyone goes backstage except for Amber, it’s time for her one on one. Amber is super angry at all the trolls on social media for bullying her all the time. Amber talks about planning her suicide. It’s very depressing. She’s pissed that Kaitlyn got a month off to deal with her mental illness and she only got a week. I really do think that the camera should have backed off her while she was suicidal. She is crying and says that no one would miss her if she left.
The first episode was pretty anticlimactic except for Amber’s multiple breakdowns. Cheyenne didn’t know that Corey was the baby’s father until the child was six months old. Her boyfriend at the time thought it was his and didn’t want anything to do with the baby. Cheyenne fell into a deep depression and Corey basically saved her life. Catelynn certainly has an unusual perspective of herself. She says she is a caretaker and supportive. Perhaps she is getting a bad edit? Because we see Tyler literally doing everything for everybody. Tyler comes out and says that the separation was necessary for him to nurture himself. They still have a romantic passion for each other. Tyler says this is a bad time to be having a baby, but it’s happening.
On Part two, Andrew talks about dealing with Amber’s depression. Andrew loves being a dad. He gets emotional talking about it. Andrew seems like a really decent guy. Gary and Christina come out and everyone says that things are going well. Gary does seem a bit hesitant about how things are going. Christina and Gary seem to know a lot more about Leah than Amber. We have to hear more about Christina’s miscarriage and Amber’s. I don’t know why we need all of this detail.
Gary updates us on his biological father. He’s there for the reunion! Gary now has five half siblings. They have only known about each other for six weeks so it seems the Dad has bonded more with Gary than Gary bonded with his dad.
Dr. Drew does a one on one with Dakota. On social media Dakota complains about the editing a lot. Dakota says he turned into everything he was trying to protect Bristol from. He is not getting treatment or counseling for his PTSD. He recently was hospitalized for his extreme anxiety. He says he doesn’t really feel emotions and is generally just numb to everything. He is tearing up a bit so I am not sure how true that is. He just seems profoundly depressed. Both Dakota and Bristol are shutdown. Both have abandonment issues. Bristol is shocked to hear that Dakota still loves him. She has some regrets on how she dealt with things. Dakota says he doesn’t want to be seen as a depressed vet. He’s going to live his life.
Next up is Maci, Taylor, Larry and Jen. Maci is wearing some horrific black lipstick. It is so distracting and disturbing. Maci and Jen have hashed it out. They seem to be in a better place. Jen says Ryan and Maci need to work some things out moving forward. Ryan needs to establish trust with everyone.
Corey and Cheyenne hit the couch together. It’s clear she is in love with him. They hooked up the night before the reunion in the hotel. Corey is not ready to get married. Corey also starts to cry talking about Ryder. Literally all the dads on this show have cried. Dr. Drew says that at some point, Cheyenne is going to move on. Dr. Drew wants to know how long she will wait for Corey. That makes Cheyenne cry. Cheyenne admits she is in love with Corey. Corey says he is not in love with Cheyenne. Drew suggests that Cheyenne move on with someone else. The old adage, “Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free?” comes to mind here.
Butch is at the reunion for the first time. Butch looks good. He has been sober for over a year. Butch starts crying because he forgot about Tyler’s suicide. Tyler’s sister is also there. She’s also sober and looks much better. She seems to be on the right track.
These were two pretty depressing episodes. At the end they bring out all the kids. Bristol’s kids did not come. The little ones are adorable. Bentley has a girlfriend!
Did y’all watch this? I kind of wish I would have skipped it.
