Teen Mom OG Recap: Ryan Edwards Gets Married! Again!

On Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12, a couple prepared to tie the knot, but that wasn't the only notable event on the MTV hit.

Not by a long shot.

Would Farrah's latest altercation with producers spell the end of her time on the show on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 12?

Would Tyler man up and get his father into rehab? Would Amber be able to handle the bombshell she had to drop on Leah?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you recall that Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s first wedding day was ... unusual.

They married in a parking lot with only his parents on hand, with Ryan having driven there high as a kite no less. On camera.

Obviously, they still have plenty of issues and obstacles to overcome, but this time, at least there was no wedding controversy.

Fans may be a little upset, though, by the fact that before the ceremony, Ryan Edwards was seen drinking with his groomsmen.

Harmless? Perhaps, but for a man with obvious addiction issues, it's sure to raise red flags with some viewers, for good reason.

Asked about his wedding vows, Ryan told his friends, “I don’t care, it’s not like it’s got to be perfect.” They were pretty close.

“I promise to always love you, be your best friend, I promise to be faithful and always be there for you,” he told Mackenzie.

Standifer had a prepared speech. Slightly awkward.

Later, Ryan admitted to his wife that he’s drunk; Edwards and Standifer proceeded to take shots and talk about their financial situation.

Ryan's father then gave a speech that made him cry.

That was pretty emotional, as was the scene last night were Tyler Baltierra’s long-troubled father, Butch, finally enters rehab.

Butch cried when he learned that his son had come up with the exorbitant amount of money to cover the treatment, in full.

At the rehab center, one of the administrators says to Tyler that it’s probably been a long time since he’s really met his dad.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met him,” he responds.

For his part, Butch confessed that he's done “a lot” of cocaine and crack in life and was on drugs as recently as “3-4 days ago.”

Terrifying. Speaking of family drama, Farrah Abraham put her differences with her mother aside to celebrate Debra‘s birthday.

At least she tried. Could it possibly last?

Deb pleads for Farrah to attend her wedding, which Sophia finally decides she's allowed to, so that's a step in the right direction.

However, after Abraham's “vaginal rejuvenation” (seriously), Deb was left waiting in the car for a half hour as Farrah got ready.

When she finally got in the car, Farrah proceeded to freak the f--k out on a producer for reasons that weren't entirely clear.

While Farrah's insane treatment of producers has been well documented, it's never not amazing to watch it play out on TV.

“If you can’t get along with anyone or try to or get in my way of how I live my f--king life," she says, "then do not work with me."

"F--k you and your excuses.”

Farrah Abraham, ladies and gentlemen. Never a dull moment or an episode that passes without a complete meltdown.

Ryan Edwards: Off the Wagon After Months of Sobriety!

Back in June Ryan Edwards married Mackenzie Standifer in a ceremony that was documented by a Teen Mom OG camera crew.

Viewers were stunned to see Ryan pass out while driving to his own wedding, and they were relieved to hear he had checked into rehab shotly after saying "I do."

With professional help, Ryan was able to beat the heroin addiction that nearly claimed his life.

But he didn't stay sober for long...

3. Meme Mess

Not long after his release, Ryan denigrated his ex, Maci Bookout, with a series of memes about "baby mamas." Many fans suspected then that he was no longer sober.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Insane in the Brain

Monday on Teen Mom OG, Amber and Andrew got into a major tiff, while Farrah and her mom continued to butt heads over Deb's wedding.

Also, Catelynn confirmed she was pregnant again, but not everybody reacted to the seemingly joyous news how you might expect.

When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 10 got underway, Amber finally announced her baby news to her friends and family members.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that there's always more drama ahead, though, and Andrew Glennon delivered.

Amber disagreed with his “hippie” suggestion that they wait to find out the gender of their child, and an explosive argument followed.

Not surprisingly, Amber won out in the end.

The family then celebrated Halloween with her daughter, Leah, along with Leah's father Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina Anderson.

Gary Shirley on Teen Mom OG

The haunted hayride looked fun, but things turned a little more serious (and awkward) when Gary expressed his concern for Amber.

Regarding her pregnancy, he even took a dig at her and the timeline of her latest romance, saying, “hopefully it’s not Matt's!"

Hopefully not, indeed. Kristina weighed in that “I think there was a break between Matt and Andrew, I think, I don’t know!”

None of us really do.

Indeed, fans have speculated that Amber’s baby could possibly be Matt’s, but there's nothing to suggest that rumor is true.

Ryan Edwards of Teen Mom

Down in the Volunteer State, Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards were still trying to figure out a custody agreement, and butting heads.

Since he has yet to take a drug test - her requirement for him to see Bentley more often - there's still an impasse in that regard.

Just the same, Maci and Ryan kept up their tradition of taking Bentley trick-or-treating together with his grandparents, Jen and Larry.

At least that was the plan.

When Maci changed the time, Ryan, Mackenzie Standifer, and her son, Hudson, were not able to join the festivities. Ryan was pissed.

Mackenzie Edwards on Teen Mom Reunion

Ryan alleged that Maci intentionally wanted to sabotage the plans and exclude him, though Maci claimed this was not the case.

Separately, she told husband Taylor McKinney that she didn’t know anything about Ryan and Mackenzie’s scheduling issues.

Either way, another day, another drama.

On a bittersweet note, considering what we know has happened since this was filmed, Catelynn Lowell was celebrating her pregnancy.

At the same time, she and Tyler Baltierra were dealing with the emotionally heavy subject of sending his father Butch back to rehab.

Tyler Baltierra and Nova

Fortunately for Butch, this time it was voluntary, not court-ordered; Cate and Tyler were also behind him 100% - and $48,000 worth.

That's a lot of confidence in his ability to take it seriously, but it seemed like he was, even if he was feeling anxious about the process.

We wish him the best.

As for Cate, we know she miscarried, and that Lowell is in rehab again as well as part of her ongoing battle with mental health problems.

Finally, Farrah Abraham heard from none other than Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 fame, who reached out to her about Deb's wedding.

Farrah Abraham Cries on Teen Mom OG

What does Jenelle have to do with it?

Apparently, Evans' ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, was invited to Farrah's mother's upcoming nuptials ... which makes literally no sense.

Farrah, naturally, was confused, and did the logical thing - calling up Debbo on FaceTime and putting her on blast over this move.

Despite the verbal reprimand, Debra decided to stand by her decision about Courtland being invited, which still makes no sense, but hey:

Very little about Farrah's world does.

Maci Bookout: New Evidence of Fake Custody Battle Emerges

Earlier this week, Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout was accused of lying to fans of the show in order to create a more dramatic storyline for herself for the show's current season.

Eagle-eyed viewers claimed that the custody battle between Maci and Ryan Edwards had been faked for the cameras, and the exes had actually reached an amicable co-parenting arrangement.

Bookout

Now, new evidence has emerged indicating that Ryan and Maci have, in fact, been sharing custody of their son Bentley for several months, all the while pretending to be at one another's throats over the question of who will raise the boy.

According to the show, the timeline of Ryan and Maci's custody battle goes something like this:

Back in June Ryan checked into rehab immediately after marrying Mackenzie Standifer.

He left treatment three weeks later, and immediately attacked Maci on social media with a vulgar meme.

Thus began one of the ugliest fights for custody in the illustrious history of the Teen Mom franchise.

Or so viewers have been led to believe...

Maci Conspiracy

The above image was posted in a Teen Mom message board on Reddit earlier this week.

The poster claims it offers conclusive evidence that Ryan and Maci are lying about the severity of their feud.

On the show, Maci and Bentley visited Ryan on Father's Day at his parents' house.

Ryan and Maci got into a fight; she left, and he supposedly didn't see Bentley for several months afterward.

“Maci’s storyline this season is total BS,” the viewer wrote on Reddit.

“Go figure lol. Here are some pictures with dates proving that Bentley has been able to see his dad and grandparents regularly since July. Tomorrow’s episode takes place at the end of October where Ryan supposedly hasn’t seen him since Father’s Day.”

Maci, Taylor Photo

Yes, it does seem that either Ryan is posting old photos of himself with Bentley, or he's lying about going several months without seeing his son.

The same viewer claimed that changes were made to Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra's storyline in post-production.

Meanwhile, Maci has moved on to a dramatic storyline.

On a recent episode of the show Bookout revealed that she suffered a miscarriage, and thus, has concerns about getting pregnant again.

While the miscarriage took place several months ago, fans were not made aware of it until recently.

Watch Teen Mom OG online for more on Maci's many struggles.

Maci Bookout Accused of Lying to Fans in Fake Teen Mom OG Storyline

If you watch a lot of reality television, then you're probably aware that the genre is somewhat ironically named.

There's no question that it qualifies as "television," but the "reality" part is a bit more dubious.

Maci Tells It Like It Is

Take Maci Bookout's storyline on the latest season of Teen Mom OG, for example:

Much of Maci's recent drama on the show has revolved around her continuing conflict with Ryan Edwards, the father of her oldest son, Bentley.

If you're a fan of the series, then you're likely aware that Ryan has struggled with heroin addiction.

Edwards checked into rehab immediately after marrying Mackenzie Standifer last summer, and though he's reportedly been sober ever since, his co-parenting relationship with Maci has continued to suffer.

Or so MTV producers would have us believe.

Maci and Bentley

According to the show, Maci and Ryan are locked in a custody battle that's tearing both of their families apart.

But eagle-eyed viewers believe the whole thing has been orchestrated for the sake of bringing some additional drama to the show's current season.

At one point the audience was led to believe that Ryan went several weeks without seeing Bentley following a Father's Day fight with Maci.

Those who have studied the show closely and cross-referenced its version events with the posts on Ryan's Instagram page claim that that's quite clearly not the case.

“Maci’s storyline this season is total BS,” one fan wrote.

Bookout

“Go figure lol. Here are some pictures with dates proving that Bentley has been able to see his dad and grandparents regularly since July."

"Tomorrow’s episode takes place at the end of October where Ryan supposedly hasn’t seen him since Father’s Day.”

And it seems that's not the only instance of dishonesty on the part of the show's cast and producers.

“The show also plays fast and loose with timelines,” wrote one commenter before citing several examples from the most recent season.

“There were several scenes with Cate and Tyler that made it appear it was the same day or same week," another sleuth said.

"But the color of their house went back and forth several times from blue to white back to blue," the armchair detective notes.

Therefore, "it was clear that the scenes were out of order and done further apart than what the storyline suggested.”

Like we said, every reality show manipulates the events of its subjects' lives in order to craft coherent storylines, but it seems Teen Mom OG producers have been rather sloppy about it this season.

And the show's producers appear to have committed a cardinal sin by underestimating the intelligence of their viewers.

As always, you can watch Teen Mom OG online to join the search for glaring continuity errors.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Stay Fertile My Friends

This week on Teen Mom OG, one cast member shocked her whole family when she reveals that she is pregnant once again.

Meanwhile, another who hoped to follow in those same fertile footsteps took the surprising step of having her IUD removed.

Tyler and Catelynn Lowell

There were birthdays, weddings and custody issues to be talked about too, making for an eventful installment of the MTV hit.

We begin with Catelynn Lowell, who actually took a pregnancy test just in case she was pregnant, but did so on the DL. Why?

Just in case since if she was pregnant, she said, she wanted to keep it from Tyler so she could surprise him in some cute way.

It turns out that she was ... and she did!

When he got home, her daughter Nova was outfitted in a shirt saying: “I’m going to be a big sister!” Tyler was ... kinda confused.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Snuggles

“Why do we have that shirt?” Tyler asked.

"Because she’s gonna be a big sister!” Catelynn responded, and brought out the positive test, and told him she'd taken three others.

“You’re a fertile myrtle,” he replied.

We don't know what that means, but sadly, we know what happens next: Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage shortly after.

In this case, knowing the details of the lives of these quasi-celebrities before they play out on screen puts a damper on things.

We just hope Catelynn is doing alright, and that her latest trip to rehab (reportedly being filmed for the show) is successful.

Mackenzie, Ryan and Bentley

In Tennessee, Ryan Edwards finally got to spend time with Bentley on his ninth birthday, though not without mire controversy.

Maci Bookout didn’t have the drug test results she demanded before she would let her first-born son be around Ryan alone.

According to Ryan, he had taken and passed such a test administered by his lawyers; Maci simply hadn’t asked for the results.

It's unclear where the truth lies, but his parents, Larry and Jen, picked up the adorable boy and arrived at the house with Ryan.

He didn’t even get off the couch, which was strange, but they did appear to have a good time together after that awkwardness.

Maci Tells It Like It Is

On the plus side, Ryan's wife Mackenzie Standifer texted Maci Bookout letting her know that she was invited to their wedding.

Their whole family was, including Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, and their kids. So that's a really positive sign for everyone.

In the Wild, Wonderful World of Farrah Abraham, she and her oft-estranged mother Debra went on a karaoke girls night out.

Debra again asked Farrah and Sophia to attend her wedding, and again was rebuffed, as Farrah really, really doesn't like David.

Finally, Amber Portwood broke the news of her pregnancy to her mom and her cousin Krystal during this week’s installment.

Amber Portwood in Good Light?

Her mom's response, not unlike ours:

“Shut up, are you serious?”

Amber's mother admitted that she was in shock and didn’t know Andrew well, hence her less-than-enthralled initial reaction.

The expectant couple was upset that word of the pregnancy made its way online before they told Andrew’s family personally.

No one knows (including Amber and Andrew) who talked to the media about this, but we're looking at you, Jenelle Evans.

Just kidding. Sort of. Not really. Maybe.

Andrew wondered if Gary Shirley, the father of Amber's daughter Leah, was the one who leaked the story. Amber doubted that.

Gary did speak to his wife, Kristina Anderson, about the pregnancy in private, musing on how this presents an opportunity.

“They could be great parents. It could be Amber’s second chance,” Gary told Kristina. “I hope that she takes care of the kid.”

Don't we all.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Let’s Try That Again

This week on Teen Mom OG, Farrah helped Michael plan his proposal, while Catelynn freaked out again and Tyler became overwhelmed.

At the same time, Maci and Taylor celebrated their anniversary, but was a dark cloud hovering over the joyous occasion?

Perhaps most significantly, Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 9 began with a pregnancy reveal. How's that for burying the lede?

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon confessed to the show’s producers and revealed that they were indeed expecting.

Since they don't use birth control, so Amber said she wasn't surprised it happened despite only knowing him for three months.

We don't even know where to start with that.

Amber also revealed that she stopped taking her medication for bipolar disorder after meeting Glennon, as she no longer needs it.

Glennon

He's so much more positive than anyone she's ever known, she says, so she can get by without the drugs, she now believes.

Andrew went on to say that he wasn't looking for a relationship, but that “something gravitational” brought the couple together.

He admitted the idea of raising a baby makes him “slightly terrified” but at the same time this just “feels so right” with Portwood.

Meanwhile, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were gearing up to launch their clothing line, but that stressed Tyler out big time.

Between that, trying to finish their house and take care of his dad, he was running on fumes and suffering from low self-esteem.

Tyler and Catelynn

In Italy, Farrah Abraham helped her father Michael propose to his girlfriend, with a poem that ended with a proposal (she said yes).

Even Farrah's mom, Debra Danielsen, offered them congratulations and an engagement gift before they all went out to dinner.

Because she had to get in at least one good dose of drama per episode, Farrah said vacations are better without Deb's fiancé.

Finally, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney were celebrating their anniversary when Amber told them she was pregnant via text.

The topic of more children then took over their dinner, with Maci telling her husband she wasn't nuts about having another.

Maci, Taylor Photo

She said she'd like to adopt in a year or two, but right now, the idea of having another biological child feels a bit daunting to her.

Taylor feels at least somewhat more strongly about it, and Maci said that if he really wanted to, she'd do it, but ASAP please.

She also brought up the fact that they had miscarried earlier that year, something McKinney did not want to discuss on MTV.

They hadn’t yet told their families about this, but Maci felt it was important to have this conversation in front of their audience.

Maci Bookout Reveals Miscarriage Heartbreak

When it comes to shows like Teen Mom OG, there's good drama, and there's bad drama

Good drama is stuff like the feud between Farrah Abraham and Amber Portwood--entertaining fluff of no real consequence.

Sadly, it seems that on this week's episode, viewers will see Maci Bookout endure drama that goes beyond "bad" and into the realm of tragic.

Maci Explains

A preview clip from the episode shows Maci and husband Taylor McKinney at dinner, discussing the possibility of expanding their family.

It seems they had previously talked about the possibility of adopting, and both agreed that they would prefer to adopt a child in the "4 to 6 age range" rather than an infant.

After the adoption discussion, Maci reluctantly revealed that she would be open to the idea of getting pregnant again,

"If you seriously want to have another baby, then I'll do it, but I still want to adopt, too," she told Taylor.

"But if we want to do it naturally, I want to do it, like, now."

Maci and Taylor McKinney

"If we want it to happen, it's gonna happen like that," Taylor replied, with a snap of his fingers.

At that point, the tone of the conversation changed abruptly, and a downcast Maci remarked, "You're forgetting something."

Taylor sat silent for a moment before meekly excusing himself from the table.

When one of the show's producers came over to see if Maci was okay, she made a tragic revelation:

"I had a miscarriage," Bookout said. “Her name is Dande. Dandelion."

“I don’t want to talk about it," McKinney interjected.

Taylor, Maci

“I think it’s important for people that are watching that we talk about it,” Maci said.

“I would like to talk to our parents about it first," Taylor replied.

There's obviously no rule book for dealing with something like a miscarriage, and both parties make valid points about discussing the matter publicly.

Other women who have suffered miscarriages may find solace in learning that Maci shares their heartbreak, but at the same time, even reality stars are entitled to a modicum of privacy.

It's terrible that Maci had to endure such a loss, but she's no doubt serving as a needed source of support for those who have suffered in the same way.

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.

Amber Portwood at 2017 VMAs

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.

Gary Shirley at 2017 VMAs

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?”

Andrew Glennon and Leah Shirley

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.

Farrah on Instagram

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?

Ryan, Bentley

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.

Kenzie Standifer

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.

Maci Bookout on Mackenzie Standifer: She is SO SHADY!

You'll never believe this, but we have another not-so-flattering story about Mackenzie Standifer to share today.

Except you'll definitely believe it, because out of all the many, many stories of Mackenzie we've shared in the past several months, literally none of them have been flattering.

It's just that she's so ... what's the word ... snake-like? Manipulative? Untrustworthy? Terrible?

It's hard to say, but the point is that Mackenzie is Teen Mom OG's biggest villain right now, and that point is proven yet again in this sneak peek for next week's episode.

In this clip, Maci is driving around town with a couple of friends, and she tells them that she just got an invitation to Ryan and Mackenzie's wedding in the mail.

"I thought that already happened," one friend says -- and we can't help but detect a little bit of shade at the reference to the parking lot wedding of the century.

Maci says that while they are already married, they're planning on having an actual wedding, which was the one that took place in November.

But that's not exactly what she wanted to discuss with her pals.

"The wedding invitation is only addressed for myself and Bentley," she says. "Like it says Maci Bookout, not Maci McKinney, and Bentley."

And that's not cool.

We use Maci's maiden name because that's how people know her -- like, nobody is out there Googling "Maci McKinney."

But obviously Mackenzie has a close relationship with Maci as the stepmother of her son, so there's no chance she wouldn't know the proper way to address her.

And to leave out her husband and her two other children on the invitation?

Come on, Mackenzie. Come on.

Her friend asks who she thinks addressed the invitations, and she points out that it's definitely "a girl's handwriting."

But instead of making a big deal about the slight, Maci says that she's just going to RSVP to the invitation with her married name and her actual number of guests.

Her friend suggests that she respond to the invitation with "not attending," and she laughs and admits that she wishes she could do that.

Who could blame her for not looking forward to that mess?

The clip ends with Maci's friend saying "shame on" Ryan and Mackenzie for this petty little move -- and if it wasn't a petty move, then it certainly was a thoughtless one.

Check out the drama in the video below:

Teen Mom OG Recap: Runways, Rehab & Retail

This week on Teen Mom: OG, Farrah and Sophia modeled at NYFW, while Amber had her first public appearance with Andrew.

How did that play out for the ladies?

MeAlsonwhile, Tyler struggled to come to terms with the fact that his dad was back on drugs as Catelynn continued her rehab stint. 

When Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 7 got underway, Amber Portwood went to the MTV Video Music Awards with Andrew Glennon.

Then she headed over to her ex Gary Shirley’s house to see her daughter, Leah, so that Gary could meet her new boyfriend as well.

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that Amber and Gary haven't always seen eye to eye regarding her personal life choices.

See Baier, Matt.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

Amber later admitted that she was worried about having multiple men around her daughter, but things seemed to go alright with Gary.

Given that Portwood and Glennon are now expecting a kid of their own, it's something Leah will have to adjust to in short order, too.

The life of Catelynn Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra was even more tumultuous this week, but then again, when is it not.

While Catelynn was gone at the MTV VMAs, Tyler met up with his mother and told her that he thinks his father Butch is still on drugs.

Addiction is a disase they sadly know well.

In a discussion later, Butch agreed that when he’s done helping Tyler with his new home, he’s ready to go to rehab ... for a while no less.

Butch seems to admit that he needs a longer, in-patient regimen and not your standard 30-day program, so that's a positive step.

Meanwhile, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney tried to balance work and family life, while her ex-boyfriend was struggling again.

Ryan Edwards and his wife, Mackenzie Standifier, were getting so frustrated with one another, especially regarding his attitude.

Standifer told a friend that she has a hard time with his temper and her expectations of how things would be when he left rehab.

“I knew it’d be hard, but I didn’t know it’d be like this,” she said. “It’s just a daily dose of I don’t know what’s coming my way.”

Mackenzie also admitted that it scares her knowing that Ryan could start using again, while he apologized for being a burden.

“You’ve been very, very understanding. I couldn’t have done this without you,” he said in an unusually heartfelt moment.

Standifer started to cry. We can't blame her.

Finally, Farrah Abraham and her daughter Sophia headed to New York City for a fashion show and invited Farrah's mom along as well.

Farrah's efforts to bond with her daughter and mom were short-lived, however, as they butted heads once again before long.

When Debra gave the girls her wedding invite, she revealed she was also inviting their co-star, Amber Portwood herself.

Farrah was not happy.

Abraham's response was that Deb was “welcoming negativity” by doing so, so she didn’t want to be part of the big day. 

Dramatic much?

Teen Mom Salaries: You Won’t Believe How Rich This Cast Is!

Teen Mom: OG and Teen Mom 2 are among the most popular series in MTV's storied history.

The stars may not enjoy the same universal name recognition as Snooki or The Situation, but their fans are an intensely devoted bunch with appetitse for every detail of the women's personal lives.

So it should come as no surprise that there's considerable interest in just how much the Teen Moms get paid.

Of course, given their many side projects and business ventures, the amount that each cast member pulls in varies wildly from one to the next ... but suffice it to say, they're all doing very well.

Here's a breakdown of just how much each mom is earning these days:

 

1. Catelynn Lowell: $25,000 per episode

Catelynn is earning the standard rate for stars of the original series. And while she has a few other revenue streams in place, she's not on her 24/7 grind like some of her co-stars.

2. Clothing By Cate

Catelynn and husband Tyler Baltierra recently launched a children's clothing line. The venture is too new to determine if it will be profitable or not.

3. Amber Portwood: $25,000 per episode

Amber also pulls in $25,000 for just a few days work on TM:OG. Unlike Catelynn, however, she puts a lot of time into her side businesses.

4. Hard Times For Haute

Amber launched her "online boutique" Forever Haute with the help of then-fiance Matt Baier. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that the business is faring much better than the relationship. Rumors that Haute is out of business appear to be premature, but multiple insiders have confirmed the site has yet to turn a profit.

5. Maci Bookout: $25,000 per episode

Some reality shows pay their more popular cast members a bit extra. Not Teen Mom: OG, however, which keeps the salaries consistent across the board.

6. Off the Bookout

Maci bookout interview with mtv uk
Unlike some of her other cast members, Maci doesn't seem to have much time for side projects. With three kids to raise and an increasingly problematic ex, we suppose that's no surprise. Besides, no matter how hard she hustles, Maci could never hope to out-earn TM:OG's wealthiest star...

Teen Mom OG Recap: The Crazy Life of Amber Portwood

Amber's plan to oust Matt from her life came to a head on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 6, thanks in large part due to a new man.

That's right, Andrew Glennon made his first appearance.

Meanwhile, Farrah returned home to Omaha and Taylor gave Maci a huge surprise ... but where either of those developments positive?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that Amber is often all over the place, and Season 5 Episode 6 was certainly true to form.

A few weeks ago, she lamented the idea of life without Matt Baier. This week, she was singing a different tune, ditching him for good.

Helping her get over Matt? Andrew Glennon, an exciting new love interest whom she met while filming Marriage Boot Camp ... with Matt.

In real time, of course, Amber and Andrew are expecting their first child together, so clearly things escalated quickly between the pair.

On yesterday evening's show, she held back on introducing Andrew to her daughter Leah until they were more established as a couple.

We're guessing that didn't take long, either.

She wasn't just keeping Leah distant from Andrew, though; Gary Shirley, Leah's dad, wasn’t too happy about Amber going AWOL in general.

While she was hanging around with her new boyfriend, she left her daughter with Gary, who was none too pleased about her priorities.

He let her hear about it, while she responded by telling Gary and his wife Kristina Anderson just how bizarre her situation with Matt was.

Texting, calling and begging her to take him back, Matt even sent her a photo 20 pills, saying he was going to kill himself if she didn’t reply.

Wow. That's lower than low.

This really makes you question his mental state, and even more incredibly, Matt Baier married Jennifer Conlon just a few months later.

While this was going on, Catelynn and Tyler reunited at last with their birth daughter, Carly, after having been apart for nearly two years.

Joyful as this was, it was bittersweet at the same time, as it left Catelynn feeling depressed once she had to say goodbye to her first-born.

Tyler, on the other hand?

He was feeling the urge to have more kids, even asking Cate if they can start “popping out more," preferably sooner rather than later.

She laughed, though clearly there were signs of her depression and anxiety evident here, and we all know what happened soon after.

Catelynn checked into rehab after experiencing suicidal thoughts, and while she's reportedly at home now, she's not out of the woods.

Maci Bookout went skydiving for her birthday, while her ex, Ryan Edwards, and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, posed for some photos.

To celebrate their engagement, that is.

Edwards seemed a little bit off, to put it mildly, fueling concerns from those worried about the troubled star's ongoing battles with addiction.

It's a scary situation. Maci making Ryan take drug tests before seeing Bentley may not be the worst idea, much as we hate to say it.

Finally, Farrah Abraham and Sophia attended her grandmother’s birthday party before going out for dinner with Farrah's mother Debra.

There, Sophia said that she never wants to see Debra again if she ends up marrying her then-fiance David. Yes, Sophia told her this.

Farrah may want to think twice about unloading her feelings on Sophia ... just an idea. The little girl even said at a different point:

“I hope David isn’t at the party.”

Whatever issues Abraham has with her mom, and however she chooses to handle those, she should at least try to shield Soph.

You know, just a little bit.

Teen Mom: The Most Insane Feuds of 2017, Ranked!

From on-camera brawls to social media feuds and even legal threats, the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 sure went hard this year.

Engagements. Breakups. Marriages. Babies. 

Moments that made you cringe because they were so painful, or smile ear-to-ear. Scenes that were fights, or made you fight back tears.

The past 12 months really had it all, and as such, were likely the most entertaining in the history of this long-running reality TV franchise.

Below, we look back at some of the MTV gang's most explosive feuds of 2017, and however you might rank them, this much is undeniable:

There were no shortage of them.

NOTE: We’ve saved the best for last, so as you recap the year that was, grab a hat and hold the f--k onto it, ‘cause it only gets wilder …

25. Briana DeJesus vs. Leah Messer (and Others)

Briana dejesus vs leah messer and others
When Briana DeJesus joined the Teen Mom 2 cast earlier this year, she was not welcomed with open arms. In fact, she quickly became persona non grata at her first get-together with the cast - with one exception. Jenelle Evans, Briana said, “is the only one who was acting like her s--t ain’t stink. Plus she was the only one who wasn’t acting fake and choosing sides.” Leah Messer’s response was to “pay no attention to those who try to bring you down … they’re just envious of where you are and how well you’re doing.”

24. Maci Bookout vs. Taylor McKinney

Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney's relationship has produced three kids, and they seem very happily married ... most of the time. Like, 85 percent of the time. Bookout alarmed fans with this confession earlier in the year that revealed some trouble in paradise: “Eighty-five percent of the time we’re good to go … Fifteen percent is hell. All of our stress and emotions, we take out on each other. When the cameras leave, we’ll drink and freak out. It’s always literally the smallest things. It’s such small stuff but it blows up. It’s not going to go away.” Yikes.

23. Matt Baier vs. Amber Portwood ... The Eruption

Matt vs amber
Things neared a boiling point between Amber Portwood and Matt Baier after he vowed that would never marry her ... because she wouldn’t marry him on the spot in Las Vegas, obviously. “I will not marry her,” he said. “I will not marry her now, ever! I’m not gonna let her [brother] dictate my life. That f—king f—got. She wants to marry her brother. That’s who she wants to marry. F—k her. She just humiliated me on TV. I’m done!” Matt, who was livid at Amber’s reasoning for not eloping in Vegas - her brother Shawn not being present - went on to tell a producer, “I don’t care who you have to give oral pleasure to, keep the Amber and Matt wedding thing off [the air]. She just embarrassed me in front of 12 million people.” We’re pretty sure you did that to yourself, Matt …

22. Jeremy Calvert vs. Brooke Wehr

Brooke Wehr was never a Teen Mom 2 cast member, but due to her mercurial relationship with Jeremy Calvert, her impact was felt just the same. Earlier this year, the couple's engagement ended after Brooke accused Jeremy of cheating on her with multiple women, one being a Teen Mom 2 producer, another being her best friend, and a third possibly being his ex-wife Leah Messer. Oh yes. Brooke even shared a screen shot of a text message conversation between Jeremy and the best friend as proof, while Calvert responded in a drunken stupor that yes, maybe he did sleep with Brooke's best friend, but ... only because Wehr slept with some other guy first. Or, as he put it, Brooke was "f-cking his brains out, every day," and he was single, so "my dick was happy to do whatever the f-ck it wanted to do, and it did." Shocking that these two didn't work out.

21. Jenelle Evans vs. David Eason

Jenelle evans david eason fight on teen mom 2
Lately, it's been Jenelle Evans and husband David Eason against the world, but at times this year, they were at each other's throats as well. Arguments between the two were commonplace throughout the most recent season of Teen Mom 2, and one particularly heated argument resulted in them calling off their wedding ... the night before the wedding. (They ultimately got married as planned.) Bad tempers are one thing, but the most troubling aspect is that David has been accused of mistreating/abusing Jenelle's son Kaiser because he reminds him of Kaiser's dad, Nathan Griffith. He also doesn't get along with her mom, at all, further driving a wedge between the Evans women.

20. Chelsea Houska vs. Adam Lind

Perhaps the longest-running feud of the franchise, Chelsea Houska and Adam Lind face off mostly through their lawyers these days, because the derelict of society can't stay out of trouble or pay child support. He was recently arrested for domestic violence against his current fiancee, leaving his ability to parent Chelsea's daughter Aubree or his other daughter Paislee (with Taylor Halbur) seriously in doubt. Guy also uses meth and steroids we're told.
