Mackenzie Standifer Quits Social Media, Dumps Ryan Edwards?!

Mackenzie Standifer has put up with an awful lot during her brief marriage to Ryan Edwards.

But now it seems she may have finally become fed up with his many awful tendencies.

Ever since Ryan was arrested back in March, he and Mackenzie have both been laying low on social media.

But now, Standifer has taken things a step further.

She appears to have quit Instagram completely, and some Teen Mom OG fans believe they've picked up on subtle signs that she and Ryan are no longer together.

Here's what we know so far:

1. Happier Times

In the wake of his March arrest for a probation violation, Mackenzie initially stood by her man. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of Ryan's downfall.

2. Repeating a Pattern

The day after the arrest, it was revealed that Ryan had been using an online dating profile to try and cheat on Mackenzie. It was not the first time he had done so.

3. It Gets Worse...

That same week, the public learned that Ryan's ex, Maci Bookout, had been granted a restraining order after revealing that Ryan had threatened to kill her husband.

4. A Painful Separation

There was a time when Ryan wasn't even allowed to make contact with his son, Bentley. A judge has since lifted that order of protection, but Ryan's vistation rights remain in jeopardy.

5. The Future

It's unclear what's next for Ryan. He could still be facing jail time, and he's in for a hell of a custody battle with Maci.

6. Mackenzie's Next Move

Mackenzie is five months pregnant with Ryan's baby (his first, her second), and fans have been encouraging her to kick him to the curb. Now, it seems she may have done exactly that ...

Maci Bookout Scores MAJOR Legal Victory Over Ryan Edwards!

If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, then by now, you're probably aware that Ryan Edwards has spent the past few months royally effing up just about every aspect of his life.

Ryan has gotten arrested; he's fallen off the wagon; he's cheated on his wife; and he's gone to great lengths to alienate those closest to him.

But for all of his repugnant behavior, perhaps nothing is more appalling than the news that Ryan threatened the life of Maci Bookout's husband, Taylor McKinney.

Now, it looks as though Ryan will pay for that crime dearly, as Maci has taken steps to protect her family by separating Ryan from that which matters most to him.

Here's what we know so far...

1. Downfall

Ryan's latest round of troubles began back in March, when he was arrested for a probation violation stemming from a 2017 arrest for heroin possession.

2. The Truth Comes Out

In the weeks that followed the arrest, a number of surprising revelations about Edwards emerged, and fans realzed the narrative about his redemption and recovery from addiction was fraudulent.

3. A Shameful Secret

For starters, it was revealed that Ryan had been using a misleading dating profile to try and cheat on his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

4. One Loyal Wife

Remarkably, Mackenzie has stood by Ryan regardless, even helping him in his efforts to keep his original possession arrest a secret. But there were some things the couple wasn't able to conceal ...

5. His Lowest Point

Amid the deluge of shocking revelations about Ryan, fans learned that he had issued a threat to Maci Bookout's husband, Taylor McKinney.

6. Taking Action

Alleging that Ryan had threatened to shoot Taylor in the head, Maci and Taylor filed for orders of protection for themselves and their children, includng 9-year-old Bentley, Maci's son with Ryan.

Farrah Abraham Staged Her Wardrobe Malfunction, Of Course

Remember how Farrah Abraham flashed her vagina at Cannes? 

It was, of course, a "total accident" and a "wardrobe malfunction," and not a planned and carefully arranged stunt because she loves attention.

We're kidding. It was by design.

As you can see in the video that we've included below, Farrah wasn't wearing underwear under her dress, which is how she ended up flashing her vagina to the camera.

While all of the witnesses were, of course, turned to stone and remain in Cannes as statues of warning, photos and even video have surfaced of the alleged "wardrobe malfunction."

During the video, Farrah can't seem to sit in the audience like a normal person.

Instead, she is constantly staring at the camera - at one camera in particular, that seems trained on her.

You know how people wondered how she had landed an invitation to walk the red carpet?

Yeah. Well, she hadn't.

Abraham just crashed the red carpet by getting up, walking on it, and it looks like she went out of her way to make sure that she showed her genitals to the camera.

And it looks like the camera operator knew what was coming.

In fact, it looks like Farrah is keeping her eye on the camera, not only because she's some sort of attention vampire who will wither and despair if people aren't looking at her ...

... But because she's waiting for some sort of signal.

We're guessing that the timing for crashing a red carpet show and flashing your genitals "by accident" and making sure that it's all captured by all of the right cameras takes precision.

Still, Oceans 8, this is not.

And anyone watching the full video can see that this was planned.

Why was it planned?

Why does Farrah do anything?

1. Attention.

2. Money (which comes from attention).

We'll admit that Farrah also does some things due to what we'll generously call personality issues that make her such a hostile reality star that she got fired from Teen Mom.

Because while there are some very, very bad people who are reality stars, most of them have the sense to not make it impossible for producers and the camera crew to work with them while they film.

Farrah did, and now she's no longer on the show that catapulted her to fame.

And many fans believe that this ridiculous stunt on the runway is probably a direct consequence of her Teen Mom firing.

Farrah needs attention, and she's clearly not getting enough by just posting risque photos on her daughter's social media account.

Farrah's appeared nude before.

For that matter, she's been in porn, solo and with a partner.

But for some very toxic reason that seems to be an indictment of our society, people are more interested in unintended nudity than they are in deliberate nudity.

A nip slip gets more attention than a topless selfie.

For that matter, people will sometimes devalue a person who poses topless, but not necessarily blame the person whose nudity was accidental.

Society is weird.

Even Farrah knows this.

A number of fans believe that this is why she tried to make it appear that she'd flashed her stuff by accident.

Since Farrah planned this, is she planning some sort of grand tour in which she'll flash her vagina at every big event?

(Yes, we know that she was technically not showing her actual vagina, but "vagina" is the colloquial term for that whole operation; please don't make us refer to Farrah's labia unless it's absolutely necessary.)

Because that will get old faster than she may realize.

Only time will tell.

Farrah Abraham Posts Risqué Pics on Daughter’s Instagram; Fans Freak Out

Farrah Abraham has spent her adult life coming up with new and interesting ways to piss off the world, and at this point, it's almost impressive how far she's willing to go just to remain relevant.

Abraham's latest mini-scandal serves as a prime example of just how inventive the former Teen Mom OG star has become in her efforts to continue making tabloid headlines.

Farrah shared some disturbing photos on her daughter's Instagram recently, and fans were absolutely floored by what they saw.

It's impossible to say what Farrah was thinking when she posted the pics, but we think it's safe to say she knew exactly what sort of reaction she would get.

And unfortunately, 9-year-old Sophia has once again been dragged into the middle of a very adult conflict thanks to her mother's highly questionable behavior.

1. A Disturbing History

Farrah and sophia abraham photo
Farrah has a long history of treating her young daughter like a grown-up friend. And unfortunately, the evidence of their inappropriate relationship often makes its way to social media.

2. Snapchat Mishap

Farrah and sophia abraham image
Last year, Farrah signed Sophia up for Snapchat, despite the fact that she fell short of the app's age minimum by several years. The account was terminated after Sophia logged on late at night and began conversing with strangers.

3. Twitter Trauma

Farrah abraham and soph
Sadly, Sophia is still active on other social media platforms. Back in December, Farrah logged on to Sophia's Twitter account in order to promote an adult film she had appeared in.

4. Crossing the Line

Farrah abraham selfie game
Needless to say, fans were highly upset, and sadly, that wasn't the first time that Farrah involved her daughter in her porn career.

5. A New Low

Farrah and sophia abraham
In a 2017 interview, Farrah predicted that Sophia would one day follow in her footsteps by starring in a "sex tape."

6. She Keeps Getting Worse

And earlier this year, Farrah revealed that she and Sophia have nude photos of one another on their phones. With all that history, some fans were sadly not surprised by Farrah's latest scandal ...

Ryan Edwards: Caught Using Heroin AGAIN?!

Over the past year, Ryan Edwards' struggles with heroin addiction have been well-documented, both on Teen Mom OG and in the tabloid headlines.

There have been brief periods of hope, such as when Edwards checked into rehab shortly after marrying Mackenzie Standifer.

Unfortunately, there's been more cause for concern than optimism, and the latest news about Ryan certainly doesn't offer much encouragement. 

Despite the fact that any violation of his probation could result in a lengthy prison sentence, it seems Edwards is definitely using again.

Here's what we know so far ...

1. Another Rock Bottom

Ryan edwards not sober
Ryan has been trapped in a seemingly never-ending downward spiral in recent months. Last month, he was arrested for a probation violation stemming from a 2017 arrest for heroin possession.

2. A Rough Year

Ryan edwards is mad
News of the arrest came on the heels of a string of legal headaches for Edwards. His wife, Mackenzie Standifer, and her husband, Taylor McKinney, were both recently granted restraining orders against Edwards after it was revealed that Ryan threatened to shoot Taylor in the head.

3. A Crushing Blow

Ryan bentley
This means, of course, that Ryan will not be permitted to see his son, 9-year-old Bentley, unless Maci requests that the restraining order be lifted or allows it to expire.

4. The Hits Keep Coming

Mackenzie standifer with ryan edwards
All of this occurred within a few weeks of Ryan getting caught cheating on his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, for the second time.

5. Triggered

It's not hard to see how all of this might have triggered a relapse. For weeks, Ryan has been laying low, and fans have been expressing concerns about his health. Now, it seems their worst fears have been confirmed.

6. Sad News

According to Radar Online, new evidence that Ryan is back on heroin has emerged and the reality star's loved ones now fear for his life.

Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans: SLAMMED for Plugging Weight Loss Lollipops!

Right on the heels of Kim Kardashian's ridiculous lollipop promotion, past, present, and perhaps future Teen Mom stars are coming out of the woodwork to promote "appetite-suppressing" lollipops.

No one's favorite reality stars, Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans, are getting slammed for plugging these weight-loss lollipops.

Even Farrah's replacement is endorsing them. And fans are roasting them all for it.

Farrah Abraham, Weight Loss Lollipop

Continuing the tradition of millionaires who've had plastic surgery promoting weight loss products to their fans, Farrah Abraham posted a (genuinely good) pic of herself.

And her caption was ... not the subtlest product endorsement that we've ever seen.

"#ad They’re like lollipops, but better. @flattummyco has figured out how to suppress my appetite with freaking LOLLIPOPS and it’s seriously the best thing ever."

Uh-huh.

"I’ve been taking them with me everywhere, and keeping extras in my purse and car too."

Don't keep lollipops in your car, folks. They melt in hot weather and it's a disaster. We assume that these lollipops work the same way.

"I tend to grab one between lunch and dinner when I need a little something to hold me over, and it totally does the trick."

... Sure.

"Keeps me from reaching for those not-so-healthy snacks. You guys seriously need to check these out! #flattummypops"

While the world over hopes that no one, least of all teenage girls, looks to Farrah for advice on anything, if her Instagram audience didn't seem like a viable market for these, she would be paid to advertise them.

Farrah Abraham Tries to Be Sexy

Followers were outraged to see Farrah endorsing what they believe to be harmful or even dangerous product.

"This is disgusting. You have so many young women following you, that by you supporting these, you are feeding into the idea that starving yourself is fine."

There are types of weight loss that are fine or even healthy, but starving yourself can do serious harm or even claim your life.

"Please god tell me you don't let your daughter use these! Why advertise sweets/candy that promotes weight loss! Disgusting."

She almost certainly doesn't let Sophia use them. She also almost certainly doesn't use them herself. She's (reasonably) rich. She uses an expensive diet, exercise, and plastic surgery.

"That's a good thing to show your daughter.. 'eat these lollipops and you won't be fat.'"

One could almost believe that this person was praising her, but fortunately they were not endorsing this mindset.

"Disgusting example of a mother and a woman. A proper diet and exercise is what you should be [promoting]... not something to make you feel full."

Hey, since Farrah was fired, we guess that she's not going to turn down an advertising opportunity.

Jenelle Evans, Weight Loss Lollipop

While Jenelle Evans is still technically a Teen Mom star, we guess, her husband was fired for being the worst. And she's playing the ad game, too.

"#ad I never thought I’d see the day that @flattummyco came out with LOLLIPOPS as a way to help keep my stomach looking flat, but they did!"

Thankfully, they have the "#ad" tag in case someone thought that she just woke up with a strong desire to push lollipops.

"Since I have a massive sweet-tooth and I’m pretty much always chasing one of my kids around, this is pretty much the best it can get for me (yummy and convenient)!"

Maybe one day, her brood will run fast enough to escape to a better life. That was supposed to be burn but ... we just made ourselves sad.

"I get to have lollipops, keep my appetite in-check, and continue to work towards my goals for a fit + toned tummy."

Sure.

"Yep, my cravings can #suckit. You guys should try these out with me - berry is definitely my favorite! #flattummypops"

Charming.

Jenelle Evans in a Bikini and Shades

Some of the criticisms aimed towards Jenelle were very, very specific.

"None of this is true. Meth keeps her stomach flat."

That's ... not Jenelle's weight loss secret. But a number of those familiar with Jenelle got a laugh out of it.

Another asked if there exists a lollipop that might assist Jenelle to prevent her from "having kids with every man your with."

Ooooh, burn.

"When you copy and paste farrah’s and mackenzie’s post and make it into one."

Yes, even Farrah's expected replacement McKenzie McKee is playing this game.

Mackenzie McKee, Weight Loss Lollipop

Mackenzie McKee, who is known for her dedication to fitness, is also promoting the lollipop.

"#ad I never thought I’d see the day that @flattummyco came out with these tasty lollipops as a way to help keep my stomach looking flat."

Oh, so they weren't kidding. Jenelle's starts the exact same way.

"And since I have a massive sweet-tooth, this is pretty much the best it can get for me (sorry kids, these lollipops are mine!)."

At least she's taking a firm stand against children using them.

"I get to have lollipops, keep my appetite in-check, and continue to work towards my goals for a fit + toned tummy."

They even both used the plus sign. Who helped Jenelle write her caption? Melania Trump?

"Yep, my cravings can #suckit. You guys should try these out with me - berry is definitely my favorite! #flattummypops"

Look, everybody needs to make money. But a lot of fans are crushed to see these women advertise these particular products.

Farrah Abraham Flashes Vagina at Cannes, Still Really Loves Attention

There was a time the Cannes Film Festival was the international community's most essential gathering of cinematic talents.

These days, however - like our cultural landscape itself - it's mostly populated by reality stars and professional pretty people.

Farrah Abraham, See-Through Lingerie Picnic

Which is why where Martin Scorsese or Werner Herzog might once have dominated Cannes-related headlines, now it's Farrah Abraham and her famous vagina capturing all the attention.

Yes, Farrah stepped out on the red carpet with her genitals in plain view of photographers last night.

And while Farrah's red carpet mishap is being widely reported as a "wardrobe malfunction," that term isn't really accurate.

Those who have followed her career closely suspect that the high-profile vadge-flash took place according to plan.

Here you have it:

Farrah Abraham Flashes the Camera at Cannes

And why, you're probably wondering as a thinking person, was Farrah in attendance at the world's most famous film festival?

We may never know for sure, but while she was on hand, the former Teen Mom OG star opened up to reporters about her ongoing legal battle with MTV.

As you may recall Farrah was fired by the network that made her famous as a result of her refusal to quit performing in live-streaming online sex shows.

Yes, that was a thing that happened.

Not surprisingly, Farrah is now claiming victory and insisting that MTV and parent company Viacom played right into her hands.

Farrah Abraham Gets Sexy

“I’m happy Viacom wanted to settle and I’m thrilled with the outcome,” Abraham told People magazine.

“I did the right thing by filing a lawsuit."

"I honestly felt that if I didn’t stand firm I would have regretted it my entire life and I would have thought my entire life ‘I should have sued!’”

The 26-year-old firebrand went on to basically describe herself as the Martin Luther King of basic cable, adding:

“Reality TV is a place where I’ve been very successful and have made history multiple times for social change, justice, and showing where society needs to be challenged and changed."

Yes, these are actual quotes.

“My recent work with MTV ended on the highest note," she continued, "and it’s a confirmation to me that I’ve been able to impact production and the network for the better."

"I hope that they continue with their willingness to listen to creators, developers, and leaders to improve the exhausted forms of shows and adapt to the next levels.”

Clearly, Farrah is just regurgitating scripted comments here.

You can tell the remarks didn't originate in her brain because one can read them and actually make some sense of what Farrah is trying to say.

We suppose that's progress, in a way.

Going forward, we can only assume she'll just start holding the mic up to her vagina and letting it do all the talking. 

Sorry, too graphic?

As always, you can watch Teen Mom OG online to relive Farrah's time as one of reality TV's most bonkers stars.

Maci Bookout: Pregnant With FOURTH Child?!

With all the drama surrounding her Teen Mom OG castmates, it's easy for Maci Bookout's more quiet and stable existence to get overlooked.

Most of the tabloid headlines surrounding Maci these days have to do with her ex, Ryan Edwards, and his battle with addiction.

And that's probably just fine by Ms. Bookout-McKinney, who's clearly found happiness in the quiet, domestic life.

But just because her indulgences are limited to the occasional Bud Light and her evenings are filled with baths and bedtime stories, that doesn't mean Maci's life is uneventful.

In fact, her social media are now convinced that the TMOG fan favorite has a major announcement on the horizon ...

1. Mother Maci

Maci has two kids by husband Taylor McKinney and one from her previous relationship with Ryan Edwards. But it seems she has no intention of stopping there.

2. Plans to Expand

3. A Difficult Conversation

5. Perseverance

Tyler Baltierra’s Latest Tweets Have Fans Concerned About His Health

Tyler Baltierra is one of the more beloved husbands in the Teen Mom franchise in large part due to how candid he's been regarding his struggles with mental illness.

Last month, Baltierra revealed that he suffers from bipolar disorder, and he was widely applauded for helping to de-stigmatize the condition by discussing it openly.

Catelynn Lowell, Tyler Baltierra on Instagram

Of course, now fans are on the alert and many have been looking for signs of a manic or depressive episodes in every word that Tyler posts on his social media accounts.

Rumors that Baltierra is suicidal have been circulating for the past week, and it seems his latest tweets have only led to increased concern from some of his followers.

The strange thing is, the tweet that's attracting the most attention sees Tyler revealing one of his favorite therapeutic activities.

"I have always loved writing & as a kid I used to write poetry, I had pages full of it!" Baltierra wrote.

"But I gave it up when I got a little older & ended up throwing it all away. I’ve been inspired recently to pick it back up & I’m on a mission to refill my notebook! #SelfCare #MyOwnTherapy"

Tyler Baltierra and Fancy Jacket

On its own, the tweet would likely give the impression that Tyler is in a very good place these days.

But he posted it along with some snippets of his poetry, and fans are worried about the references to suicide and self-harm that appear in Baltierra's verse.

"From on top of this mountain, I'll cut these ties, not my wrists," he writes in one poem.

"I'll fight with these words, instead of my fists," he continues.

"I'll take this newfound strength, leap & fly out of this cage & I'll make sure I'm the only one who's in control & I'm the only one who's turning the page!"

Tyler and Catelynn Post-Therapy

It sounds to us like Tyler's feeling empowered and optimistic these days, but many of his followers just can't get over that reference to self-harm.

The issue, it seems, is that suicide is on Tyler's mind at all, even as an option that he staunchly rejects.

Ever since he went public with his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, fans have been on the lookout for the jarring mood swings that often characterize the disorder.

And many are concerned that self-harm will remain in Baltierra's thoughts during one of his inevitable depressive lows.

It's not hard to see why they're concerned, but ultimately, this amounts to armchair psychotherapy from people who don't know enough about Tyler or his condition to make predictions about what will happen next.

Amber Portwood: I Had BRUTAL Morning Sickness the Whole Pregnancy!

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Amber Portwood welcomed her baby boy.

Amber is happy that her son is born and that she's given Leah a baby brother. But ... she is also relieved.

Apparently, Amber's pregnancy was harder on her than she ever let on. This sounds brutal.

Amber Portwood Can't Chill

A source tells People that Amber Portwood's pregnancy complications were intensely rough on her.

"Amber spent almost her whole pregnant feeling sick."

A little morning sickness -- which involves, ugh, vomiting -- is not uncommon early on during pregnancies. For some women, it's the first indicator that they are pregnant.

"Not just the first trimester, and not just in the mornings."

That sounds like a truly miserable existence.

"She was sick day and night."

That is heartbreaking to hear.

"It was brutal."

Amber Portwood and Son

The good news, of course, is that Amber Portwood welcomed her son with Andrew Glennon.

"Baby James is here and Amber is over the moon"

He was born weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces, which is above average but doesn't make him a goliath by any measure.

We knew that he was born early on Tuesday, but the insider confirms that he was born at 1:39 in the morning. That's very, very early.

All of that suffering must have felt worth it when she looked at his tiny little face, right?

Leah and James

Apparently, the extreme sickness did not come as a surprise -- because she had gone through the same thing with Leah.

"It was the same problem she had in her first pregnancy, she was just sick all the time."

Nine years is a long time, but not long enough to forget what it's like to spend nine months being betrayed by your own body.

But, apparently, she felt that it would be worth it.

"In spite of all that she was just so happy to be starting over with a guy like Andrew."

That's nice to hear, since fans have heard how messy Amber and Andrew's relationship is.

"And now that the baby is here, they are over the moon."

Okay, that insider needs to find some new idioms. (But we're all guilty of that from time to time)

Amber Portwood with Andrew Glennon

This wasn't actually a huge surprise to Amber's fans.

While she didn't tell fans exactly how bad it was, she certainly let people know that her pregnancy was not all smooth sailing.

When Amber went into early labor, she was unable to sleep, and she shared with her fans that she was having a hard time.

But that was last weekend, just two days before she gave birth.

it is absolutely horrifying to imagine that she was sick at all hours of the day.

Even if that insider is exaggerating ... many people are amazed that she decided to have another baby at all, given what she was in for.

Sweet Baby James!

The first photos of sweet baby James that we've seen are so cute.

And Amber seems so at peace, too.

We also love seeing 9-year-old Leah cradling her baby brother.

That's a hell of an age difference. In a lot of households, this would lead to Leah being yet another primary caregiver for her little sibling.

But we're sure that Leah and baby James will have plenty of time to bond with each other and forge a beautiful sibling relationship.

We are so sorry to hear that Amber had such a hard time bringing him into this world, however. But at least that ordeal is in the past.

But, apparently, she felt that it would be worth it.

"In spite of all that she was just so happy to be starting over with a guy like Andrew."

That's nice to hear, since fans have heard how messy Amber and Andrew's relationship is.

"And now that the baby is here, they are over the moon."

Okay, that insider needs to find some new idioms. (But we're all guilty of that from time to time)

Amber Portwood with Andrew Glennon

This wasn't actually a huge surprise to Amber's fans.

While she didn't tell fans exactly how bad it was, she certainly let people know that her pregnancy was not all smooth sailing.

When Amber went into early labor, she was unable to sleep, and she shared with her fans that she was having a hard time.

But that was last weekend, just two days before she gave birth.

it is absolutely horrifying to imagine that she was sick at all hours of the day.

Even if that insider is exaggerating ... many people are amazed that she decided to have another baby at all, given what she was in for.

Sweet Baby James!

The first photos of sweet baby James that we've seen are so cute.

And Amber seems so at peace, too.

We also love seeing 9-year-old Leah cradling her baby brother.

That's a hell of an age difference. In a lot of households, this would lead to Leah being yet another primary caregiver for her little sibling.

But we're sure that Leah and baby James will have plenty of time to bond with each other and forge a beautiful sibling relationship.

We are so sorry to hear that Amber had such a hard time bringing him into this world, however. But at least that ordeal is in the past.

Amber Baltierra: Tyler Baltierra’s Sister Enters Rehab for 3 Months

Teen Mom OG viewers will recognize Amber Baltierra, the sister of Tyler Baltierra.

While Tyler has recently discussed the fact that he is bipolar, Amber has her own troubles. Hers, it seems, have been getting worse.

And now it is revealed that she will be checking herself in to a 90-day stint in rehab. But why?

Amber Baltierra

Amber tells fans that she is going away by sharing a couple of (filtered) photos of her children, writing on Instagram:

"These two. They are my rock. My motivation. My inspiration."

That's exactly what we want to hear from any parent.

"The reason I breathe and wake up every day."

At times, her message slips from being about her children to being directed at her children.

"Mommy loves you [two] more than you guys may know right now."

She says that she is doing this for them.

"You both deserve nothing but the best and I will give that to you."

In talking about how much she will miss her kids, she reveals how long she will be away.

"I’m gonna miss you these 90 days."

That's a very long time. But she knows that they will be okay.

"I know dad and everyone else will keep you busy this summer."

Her thoughts will always be with her children.

"Just know I love you both with every fiber in me."

This step, which she is taking for herself, will also help her to be their parent.

"When mom gets home she’s gonna be the best woman I can be and an even better mom."

Teen Mom fans already understand that Catelynn Lowell's mental illness does not make her a bad mom. So surely they can understand that Amber's troubles don't meant hat she loves her kids any less.

Amber Baltierra message

She does not explain why she is entering rehab, but she does write:

"I’ll pray for your comfort and happiness everyday I’m not with you."

That is so sweet.

"Show the world [you're] my babies and you guys are strong and can get through anything."

And she shares some words of inspiration with them:

"Because well, you got Baltierra blood and it don’t get stronger than that"

Amber Baltierra Kids 02

Her estranged husband, Billy Wade Elkins Jr., tells RadarOnline that Amber Baltierra will undergo treatment at a Texas rehab facility. And she's leaving very soon.

"She's going to Texas. She leaves Friday."

Her father, Butch Baltierra, had already confirmed that she would be doing a stint in rehab.

Though Amber did not specify why she is entering rehab, it is reported that this may be for relationship issues as well as alleged drug use.

We hope that this experience helps her.

(Also, check out this throwback that she shared of her and Tyler)

Tyler Baltierra and Amber Baltierra

One insider claims to RadarOnline that, in their opinion, Amber is going to rehab as a sort of ... vacation?

"I think it's an excuse to ditch her responsibility as an adult."

They say that she is no genuinely trying to change.

"Not to really get any help."

This source does not expect to be overwhelmed by the results of Amber's 90 days away.

"I'd be very surprised if she came out changed for the better."

This insider also thinks that it may be some sort of stunt.

"Amber in my opinion is only going to therapy for attention and what it does for the show."

Overall, this person clearly does not think highly of Amber.

"She's just irresponsible, immature, so maybe it'll get her act together." Yikes.

We wish Amber Baltierra the best of luck during her rehab stint.

We can only imagine how much she will miss her children. She's planning to be gone until August, folks.

And while we're sure that Tyler understands, Catelynn Lowell only returned from rehab last February. Now, his sister is entering a facility.

It's good that they're getting help, but he has to be missing these important figures in his life while they're away.

Teen Mom Stars: A Comprehensive Guide to ALL Their Kids

The girls from Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2 became famous because of their babies, welcomed into the world at a very young age.

You could say they were 16 and Pregnant. All of them.

For better or worse, they persevered and went on and (in many cases) had additional ones! At parenting, some have fared well.

Others, fared ... not quite as overwhelmingly well.

Perhaps it's fitting that Jenelle Evans welcomed her third child one day before Chelsea Houska had her second, as these girls run the gamut!

Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry just welcomed her third as well, while Teen Mom 2 newcomer Briana DeJesus is now a mom for the second time.

We're not here to be critical (that's what Instagram is for). We're just here to break down the nine stars and their unconventional families.

Unconventional, but beautiful and loving. <3

1. Sophia (Farrah Abraham and Derek Underwood)

Farrah abraham and sophia in makeup
Oh, Soph. Unlike many of her Teen Mom tot counterparts, Sophia lives the life of luxury, thanks to her mother, non-porn star Farrah Abraham. Seriously, the younger Abraham has her own clothing line, dabbles in child modeling, hires and fires people for her mom (you can't make that up), and receives $900 when the tooth fairy pays a visit. (Sophia's father, Derek, died in a car accident while Farrah was still pregnant; Derek's grave is the site of many memorable TM scenes, which some believe to be shamelessly orchestrated by Farrah). Sophia is going to be a handful when she grows up at this rate ... the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as they say.

2. Leah (Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley)

Amber and leah shirley
Amber Portwood is a rarity in the world of Teen Mom, as the OG has not birthed another child after daughter Leah. Probably for the best, given her devastating drug problems; Amber served a year and a half in prison. Leah's dad, Gary Shirley, has been there for her the entire time, and she seems to be well-adjusted as both Gary and Amber move on with their lives and new relationships - even if hers (with Matt Baier) has involved plenty of tension.

3. Carly (Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra)

Catelynn and tyler teen mom
When step-siblings turned lovers Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the decision to give their baby Carly up for adoption, it marked one of the most touching, bittersweet moments in reality TV history. What made it all the more incredible was that they stayed involved in her life - albeit with some bumps in the road - ever since, then got married and had another baby together years later. Which they kept.

4. Nova (Catelynn and Tyler)

Tyler baltierra catelynn lowell novalee hike pic
Tyler and Catelynn kept and are raising Novalee Reign Baltierra together, not that it's been easy. Catelynn's severe self-esteem issues and post-partum depression have been a major storyline for the couple in recent seasons ofTeen Mom: OG.

5. Bentley (Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards)

Maci bookout and bentley edwards
Bentley, Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards' first and only child, is much bigger than this these days, and the level of happiness in their lives has also grown expontentially. After a relationship with Edwards that was among the franchise's most disastrous, Maci met and married Taylor McKinney, who fathered two additional kids with Maci and has been an incredible stepdad to Bentley. Even Ryan has moved on and gotten engaged ... miracles do happen in this world.

6. Jayde (Maci and Taylor McKinney)

Maci and Taylor McKinney's first child together was a daughter, Jayde.

Amber Portwood: Farrah Abraham SUCKS … But Her Replacement Might Be Worse!

Early Tuesday morning, Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood welcomed her baby boy.

While she's excited and busy with her new baby, Amber always has time for her longstanding feud with Farrah Abraham.

And she's speaking about Farrah's firing ... and her replacement.

Amber Portwood with Baby Bump

Amber Portwood spoke to HollywoodLife.

"Everyone knows why Farrah’s not on the damn show."

While the exact story varies depending upon whom you ask, Amber is definitely not buying the "Viacom hate crimes" angle.

"She pushed her limits every season, she knew that she did."

Farrah was reportedly a nightmare for producers and others responsible for making the show.

Amber says that, eventually, enough was enough.

"And you can’t keep doing that."

Drama is the fuel that keeps reality television going, and Amber acknowledges that Farrah was nothing if not wildly dramatic.

"Yeah, it works for a little while, it brings some ratings."

Amber Portwood and Son

Amber explains that there are limits to how much of a real-world disaster you can be and still have people willing to work with you.

"But when you keep pushing back and it’s a big network, you can’t go too far."

Eventually, like a bear being harassed by a racist squirrel, MTV got tired of it.

"This is bigger than her."

But since Farrah has been claiming that this was all about her sex work, Amber thinks that Farrah may genuinely believe it.

"I think she didn’t realize that and she got booted for it."

But Amber won't lose any sleep over Farrah's departure.

"I’m just fine with it, s--t. I don’t care."

That's fair.

Sweet Baby James!

Reportedly, Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee is replacing Farrah on Teen Mom OG.

But Amber says that she is in the dark -- or at least that she cannot confirm anything.

"I don’t know what’s going on with that."

Obviously, the stars aren't going to comment until the network makes things nice and official.

"Again, everything’s up in the air."

Amber does suggest that MTV's cameras may have included her giving birth to her newborn boy.

"I can’t say that yet. I really don’t know if my birth will be filmed because I may have him before the due date, so it’s getting crazy."

Amber's due date was May 13, so she's absolutely right.

But we do wonder if cameras are rolling.

Leah and James

The biggest thing in Amber's life right now has nothing to do with her past, present, or future castmates.

She just gave birth!

As Amber revealed back in December, her son's name is James Andrew Glennon.

Huge congratulations to the whole family -- Amber, Andrew, baby James, and of course, Leah!

When Amber went into early labor over the weekend, we knew that the countdown had begun.

Amber Portwood Flaunts Major Cleavage

Obviously, Amber Portwood has had her issues over the years ... and even recently.

Among other things, her anger issues have made her interesting to watch on television, even as they have alarmed viewers.

A lot of fans are also concerned about her whirlwind romance with Andrew Glennon. Some even worried that he used her emotional vulnerability to become her rebound.

But she seems to be much happier with her current situation than she has been in a while.

And congratulations for the birth of her son are absolutely in order.

Amber Portwood Welcomes Son: First Pics & Cast Reactions!

Earlier this week, Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood welcomed a baby boy.

It's her second child, and the first for her baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.

Today, Amber released the first photos of little James Andrew Glennon (or JAG, as we like to call him), and fans can't get enough of her newest bundle of joy.

Amber's co-stars have also been gushing about baby James.

In fact, even Portwood's biggest rivals appear to have offered an olive branch in honor of the latest addition to the Teen Mom OG  family ...

2. Sweet Baby James!

Amber obviously couldn't be happier about her new arrival. In pictures with little James, she's positively beaming.

3. Leah and James

Leah tweeted this pic of her daughter, Leah, enjoying the company of her new little brother. "Big Sis and little James! She was so excited to meet her little brother!" Amber captioned the pic.

4. All the Support

Obviously, Amber hasn't always been a fan favorite, but Teen Mom viewers have been outspoken in their love and support as she once again embarks down the path of motherhood.

5. The Name James, Though...

Some have expressed hope that Amber will begin referring to her child in less formal fashion, but it seems she's sticking with "James." We see their point - it's a bit like meeting a baby girl named Karen - but it's her prerogative.

6. Back to the Positive

But all that's just nit-picking. For the most part, fans have had nothing but kind words for the growing Portwood-Glennon clan. In fact, Amber has received praise from some very unlikely sources ...
