We start this season’s first Teen Mom recap with Amber going to court to get a plea deal on her domestic violence charges. I am shocked that she got no jail time. This is not her first offense and she got five years last time. Amber talks to Gary about the attack. She regrets not walking out of the house when she was starting to lose it. I feel like last season, she straight up told a therapist that she was going to explode and he basically did nothing. She tried to get help and basically didn’t get anything. Corey is an idiot. Andrew needs to be the one taking care of the child right now. Amber is not mentally well enough to raise that child. Andrew has been raising that baby on his own even when we were together while Amber sleeps.
It’s time for Leah’s first day of school. And Amber is worried if she goes someone will say something nasty to her and embarrass Leah. She ends up going and everything went fine. She wanted to walk in by herself for the first time. Amber talks to production about how hard it was. Both of her children need to live with their fathers.
I have forgotten all about this girl. Apparently, her baby daddy, Josh is not living in the home anymore. Oh and she is the one whose mother has cancer. I believe she passed away during filming. Mackenzie has Josh come over and once again discusses his cheating incident. Josh says he is “so sorry for whatever he did.” Also, “deep down” her truly does love her.
Mackenzie and Josh were back together for a bit. But they have separated again. Her mother died in December. She says she cannot watch this season because it will just mean reliving the worst time of her life. I really can’t watch this scene with her getting advice from her mother either. Her mom’s advice was not great.
Maci and her whole squad are going to Louisiana to visit family. Ryan’s new baby mama has invited them to their kids birthday party but due to previous plans Bentley won’t be in town. Apparently, their family vacation is camping. That is so Maci and Taylor. Maci tried Naked and Afraid and didn’t last long.
Catelynn has planned a trip to Hawaii to celebrate her fourth anniversary with Tyler. I will never get over being shocked at the giant villa’s with ocean front views and long balconey’s that these kids stay in on trips. I didn’t see any promotion of the place so they are probably paying it out of their Teen Mom check.
Cheyenne’s boyfriend,Matt, is moving to LA. She is not going to let him move in. The moment he arrives he mentions that his roommate situation fell through. Cheyenne looked at very expensive apartments with him. It is totally ludicrous for Matt to think she is going to move all of her children in with him.
There wasn’t really much to discuss in this recap. I feel like they have too many teen moms. If they just had the real OGs we could get more of their story each week. What do you think? Is anyone still watching this?
