Farrah Abraham: I’m Playing a Cop! In a REAL Movie!!

Farrah's in a movie! It might not be that movie JJ Abrams is making about Farrah's life. But we're sure he'll get started right away after he sees ... this.

In the video that we've included, Farrah shows off her police uniform.

See, she's landed a movie role.

"Well the tables have turned," Farrah jokes in her caption beside a photo that shows her in a police officer's uniform.

Farrah is referring to her court case over an alleged assault on a hotel employee. Farrah pleaded not guilty just days ago.

Farrah then bosts that: "The Irony in my life is better then watching 'COPS.'"

We're not going to delve into the definitions of different types of irony. We'll just let that one go.

(We're also, even more reluctantly, leaving unchallenged the suggestion that COPS is somehow a paragon of entertainment)

Farrah is going to appear in I Got The Hook-Up 2. She plays a police officer.

"Watch Full video now on my #youtube channel! Vlog," Farrah invites her followers.

See our attached video if you want to witness Farrah's totally professional nonstop livestreaming from the set.

"On set behind the scenes," Farrah teases. "#IGOTTHEHOOKUP2 coming soon!"

The first film, whose stars included Master P and Ice Cube, came out a few years ago.

"Love @masterp & all of production @ko_creative," Farrah concludes. "ON SET SCRIPTED VLOG FARRAH ABRAHAM "I GOT THE HOOK UP 2"

Back in July, Farrah's talent agency (ugh, can imagine what kind of torment it must be to do that?) praised her.

They described her casting accomplishment as "booking a leading role in a SAG film."

Well ... it sure is a SAG film. It doesn't look like she's playing the main character, however.

"In this next scene, I gotta admit I thought I was playing the lead principal role, and then I woke up this morning," Farrah says at one point in the video.

Oh Farrah.

After overcoming her distraction, Farrah resumes her story.

"Messed up," Farrah tells the camera as she continues to livestream nonstop from the set.

"So basically I did a whole acting coach and memorized the whole thing," Farrah reveals.

So she learned her script. Like actors are supposed to.

"And now," Farrah continues. "Totally different role."

Farrah isn't blaming Master P for this hate crime worthy of Viacom.

"That was like an executive over like the company," Farrah says, explaining whose call it was to make her play a police officer rather than the lead.

Farrah seems uncharacteristically chill about getting demoted.

Maybe she's just very, very excited to be appearing in a movie that does not involve things going into her orifices.

Maybe she's just excited to be appearing in something that has an actual script.

Compared to charging fans $10 to touch her, this does seem like a step up for Farrah's recent career.

And honestly? She should be excited.

Plenty of actual, non-terrible actresses get their start in minor roles in a random sequel films.

And the first I Got The Hook-Up made more than 8 times its budget at the box office.

Mackenzie Standifer Wants to Plan Your Wedding For Some Reason

Last month, in news that was both shocking yet not at all shocking, we learned that Ryan Edwards is leaving Teen Mom OG.

That doesn't mean he's leaving the public eye, though, because this is 2018, and fool's gotta support his kid(s) somehow.

Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, are expecting their first child together (it will be the second for both of them overall).

What would've been a heartwarming storyline on the MTV reality show that made him famous won't be happening, though.

Edwards' ex, Maci Bookout, reportedly demanded he be nixed from the show because of his struggles with drug addiction.

Maci, who cited the potential impact on their son Bentley, even said she wishes Ryan were still in jail ... where he's safer.

The sad part is she may have a point.

After Edwards' latest arrest, the 30-year-old's capacity to handle parenting (or just life, in general) has never been more in doubt.

Being out of work with a baby on the way and looking at prison time for violating probation is not a good position, to say the least.

Well, Mackenzie is - despite shady Ryan's Tinder history and heroin use - trying to make lemonade out of her lemon of a husband.

She's moving on to a new career, announced on an official website this week, as “MACKENZIE EDWARDS WEDDING AND EVENTS.”

That's right, she's a wedding planner!!

Mackenzie Edwards Pic

What are you waiting for, couples? She's currently booking weddings for the fall of 2018, and is ready to make your dreams a reality.

“My name is Mackenzie, and I love all things wedding and events,” Mackenzie says on her official site, Mackenzie Edwards (dot) org.

“My personal mission is to see your dreams come to fruition," Standifer says, acknowledging that this is no easy task!

"Sometimes it can be hard to take all of the thoughts, dreams, and visions in your head and turn them into a reality."

"That is where I step in."

Mackenzie Standifer Bump Selfie

"From start to finish, whatever your needs may be, I will be here to help and guide you every step of the way," she adds.

"The stress of planning your own wedding can take a toll on ones self and really take away from the whole experience."

"With my help, we can partner together to create you the wedding of your dreams and alleviate the stress factor."

Definitely sounds like a good pitch ... but how's she going to do that with a baby at home? Or after she gives birth for that matter??

ZINNNNNNG!!

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer Selfie

"When I am not compulsively planning, you can find me hanging out with my family at our fave hot spot, the lake," she says.

"I have a family FULL of boys (including the dog) so being able to express my femme, creative side is such a breath of fresh air."

Ranging in prices from $150 to $1,500, Mackenzie has what it takes to meet your needs at any price point. Super convenient.

For the premium rate, you get two in-person 1-hour consults (up to a maximum of four) plus unlimited contact via email/text & phone.

Unlimited!

Mackenzie Standifer Bump Pic

Weddings are stressful, sure, but no one needs 24-7 access to Mackenzie. Even Ryan needs to go on Tinder now and then.

Sorry. We'll stop, we promise.

Beyond event and rehearsal coordination, venue selection, handling of payments and the like, you get access to her “little black book.”

[We'll pass on the jokes.]

All in all, you can expect white glove service planning the event of a lifetime ... if you think she's the best person to do the job, of course.

Would you consider hiring Standifer as your wedding planner ... especially after the bizarre parking lot wedding she personally had?

Or the fact that she is, you know, involved with Ryan Edwards? That sort of casts a pall over one's decision-making ... just saying.

Discuss!

Maci Bookout: Adoption Plans Revealed!

Maci Bookout has had quite a tumultuous year.

Much of the drama in her life has had to do with the continued legal troubles of Ryan Edwards, the father of her first child, who's currently facing up to a year behind bars.

While much of the focus on Maci over the past year has had to do with Ryan's downward spiral, the mother of three has a whole lot on her mind these days aside from her ex's substance abuse issues.

Maci and husband Taylor McKinney have been open about their desire to expand their family, but even fans who hang on Bookout's every word might be surprised by exactly what the couple has in mind for their future ...

Maci Bookout Has One Big Problem with Bristol Palin Joining Teen Mom OG

Maci Bookout held little back as a guest this week on Kailyn Lowry’s “Coffee Convos” podcast.

First, as previously detailed, Maci spoke out for the first time since ex Ryan Edwards got arrested for approximately the 174th time.

From there, Bookout delved into the most pressing topic facing Teen Mom OG viewers at the moment...

Maci

... the addition of Bristol Palin to this franchise.

In mid-July, this daughter of an ignorant, close-minded and controversial former Vice Presidential candidate confirmed that she was headed to MTV, claiming she was joining the series in order to serve as a role model.

Asked about Palin as a co-star, Maci at first took a shot at former co-star Farrah Abraham, who was dismissed from Teen Mom this past winter due to her penchant for appearing in amateur porn videos.

"I really feel like I’m not gonna be mad about anybody joining because anybody’s better than Farrah," Maci told Kailyn on the podcast.

Not many folks out there will disagree with this opinion.

It wasn't exactly Maci's most scorching take of all-time.

Maci Bookout Is Not Pregnant

Bookout went on to tell Lowry and cohost Lindsie Chrisley that she doesn’t “really care if other people join the cast,” nor does she blame Bristol for doing so.

She simply would have appreciated any kind of heads-up prior to MTV announcing the decision.

“I think me and Catelynn [Lowell] and Amber [Portwood] are all pretty much on the same page,” Bookout explained, adding:

“If they bring in new cast members, we don’t want it to be called Teen Mom OG because that’s not true if there’s new cast members.

"We don’t really care who joins because in our minds, we’re like, if somebody is presented with the opportunity, or like, say, one of us was never on the show and they asked us, no one’s going to turn the opportunity down.

"You can’t be mad at somebody for accepting an opportunity.”

Bristol Palin and Crew

This is a reasonable point of view.

Of course, Palin is reportedly making $250,000 for one season of filming, which may be cause for tension between her and her new colleagues.

This huge salary could be considered disrespectful to those who have been part of the cast for years.

Bookout says she would have appreciated a "courtesy call" from producers, but didn't sound all that peeved about Palin:

"That’s my problem. Like, hey, they know when it’s going to come out. They know when the official release is coming out so, like, an hour before, call.

Give us a call and be like, ‘Hey, by the way, this is who your new cast member is going to be. it’s being released today. … We’ve been doing this for 10 years!"

Bookout, Maci: A Photo

In her own statement since the news went viral, Bristol said the following about her upcoming role on Teen Mom OG:

I am excited to join MTV's 'Teen Mom OG.' I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey.

Elsewhere, Lowry also asked Bookout about the reports that The Challenge’s Cheyenne Floyd and Corey Wharton are joining the cast.

But the long-time reality TV personality did not confirm or deny the casting rumor. Or seem to care much.

“I think because Bristol Palin has such a … I mean, her mom ran for vice president, so I think it’s just a bit of a bigger deal than fellow MTV stars coming on,” she said.

MTV has not yet announced a premiere date for Teen Mom OG Season 8.

Maci Bookout Opens Up on Ryan Edwards Arrest: I Wish He Was Still In Jail!

Maci Bookout is in a difficult spot.

Her first baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, has been arrested three times in the past 18 months and is currently facing a year in prison if convicted on the latest charges against him.

Ryan, Maci Split Pics

Maci currently has a restraining order against Edwards as a result of an incident in which he allegedly threatened to murder her husband.

It may sound like she can now easily wash her hands of her troubled ex -- but it's not that simple.

Bookout has made it clear that she very much wants her eldest son, Bentley, to have a relationship with his father.

Unfortunately, she wants more than anything to ensure her son's safety.

And for the time being at least, that means keeping him away from Ryan.

Bookout, Maci: A Photo

Maci has mostly kept quiet about Edwards' struggles with addiction, but she opened up this week in an interview for Kailyn Lowry's Coffee Convos podcast.

Her comments on Ryan's legal issues underscore Maci's conflicting feelings toward her ex.

“I’ll be honest, I have no idea what state he’s in because he’s not allowed to be around any of us. He can’t just be in the same location as me and the family,” she told Lowry.

“So I have no idea. He’s not allowed to contact us or anything like that. But I mean, he did get arrested, I don’t know … I mean, I do know why, but I don’t want to say.”

Ryan Edwards Is Mad

Bookout then revealed that she actually felt better about the situation when Ryan was held in jail for a week last month.

“I feel better that he is in jail because I know he’s safe there, if that makes sense,” Maci said.

“I know he’s not driving around. He’s not doing something that could potentially hurt him or an innocent person. So it sucks, crappy situation for everyone.”

Edwards is currently out on bail and serving six months probation.

He's due back in court on August 23 to be tried for his latest probation violation.

Dakota Meyer: THIS Is Why I Had to Divorce Bristol Palin!

As we learned earlier this month, Bristol Palin is divorced from Dakota Meyer.

But while she moves on with her life and prepares to get paid big bucks to join Teen Mom, her ex-husband, Dakota, is still reeling from the split.

Now, he is opening up to his followers on why they divorced and how he's getting through it.

Dakota Meyer and Bristol

Dakota took to his Instagram Stories to reply to some fan questions that he had received.

"Why did you and your wife get a divorce?" one fan asks Dakota. "You seemed so cute together."

That's a heavy question, but he managed to keep his reply brief.

"She wasn't happy with me," Dakota writes. "So it's for the best."

If you're not getting along, it makes sense that you'd split. He managed to answer that without spilling any family secrets.

"I know this is a personal question," another fan asked during his ask-me-anything. "But any advice for those going through a divorce?"

The newly divorced dad did not mind answering.

"Take it one day at a time and focus on you," Dakota replies.

"You can try everything and give the person all you have," Dakota says grimly. "And if they don't choose to see good in you it's out of your control."

That is a very healthy thing to say, but also kind of sad.

"Know when enough is enough," Dakota advises.

Another fan asks: "What is it that helped you keep moving forward after those dark times?"

"Both of my girls have got me through so much," Dakota replies.

"But Sailor is what turned me into a man," he says of his elder daughter.

Sailor Grace was born in 2015. Atlee Gray was born to the couple in 2017.

"And," he reveals, Sailor "made me not just want to be better but to make the commitment I'd do whatever it took to be the best dad ever."

Dakota Meyer Instagram Stories Divorce Advice 03

Dakota answered other questions, and one fan even asked if he would consider getting married again.

His reply is a simple: "hell no."

Many newly divorced people feel a similar sentiment, but often they find themselves repeating past mistakes after they begin to miss the feeling of being married.

Perhaps Dakota, if he does marry, will choose someone better next time.

(If your ex is Bristol Palin, whoever comes next has to be an improvement, right?)

Dakota Meyer Pic

Dakota filed for divorce from Bristol in late January.

In his divorce filing, he cited "discord or conflict of personalities."

Yikes.

The documents say that this conflict "destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

In other words, it sounds like things were heavily toxic and that their union had become a contentious battlefield. That's no way for a marriage to work.

Bristol Palin and Husband

A lot of fans may still be scratching their heads and wondering why Bristol Palin is joining Teen Mom.

Sure, she was a teen mother back in the day -- but so were plenty of people's grandmothers. That doesn't mean that a little old octegenerian is likely to join the cast.

Obviously, showrunners decided that they needed someone just as toxic and universally reviled as Farrah Abraham.

And for that, you can look no further than Bristol.

Ryan Edwards: Shocking New Arrest Details Revealed!

Last month, Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards was arrested for the third time in less than two years.

This time, local authorities were less inclined to give Edwards the benefit of the doubt, and he remained behind bars for a full week awaiting his arraignment.

Ryan Edwards Mug Shot (New)

Edwards was released from jail on July 31,  but his legal headaches are far from over.

Ryan is due back in court on August 23, and he still faces up to a year in prison.

If he misses his court date, he'll likely be incarcerated immediately.

If he lands in front of a judge who's less sympathetic to his plight than the previous ones, Ryan is likely headed for the slammer.

Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer Selfie

Edwards and wife Mackenzie Standifer have done their best to keep his legal troubles concealed from the public, but they haven't been terribly successful.

Now, new details of Ryan's arrest have emerged, and it's led some to the conclusion that Ryan doesn't care whether or not he goes to jail.

Until today, all we knew about Edwards' latest brush with the law was that he had violated his probation yet again.

Now, we know that Ryan brazenly flouted local traffic violations by driving 36 MPH over the speed limit.

"I observed the above violator operating the above vehicle at a high rate of speed," wrote the arresting officer in his citation.

Ryan Edwards Is Mad

"The vehicle's speed was confirmed by a radar at 80MPH in a 55MPH zone."

That may not sound like such a big deal -- but when you're on probation and facing prison time, every infraction is a big deal.

Though he was held without bail following his latest arrest, Ryan was eventually released with a slap on the wrist and sentenced to serve six months probation and five days of community service.

Needless to say, Ryan has to keep his nose clean if he hopes to avoid being sent away.

And as he's proven many, many times in the past, the ability to stay out of trouble is not a skill Edwards seems to possess.

Farrah Abraham to Fans: For Just $10, You Can Physically Touch This!

With a friend claiming that Farrah Abraham is a hooker, perhaps now isn't the best time for her to be effectively selling her body -- but that's just what the former Teen Mom star was doing.

Sort of.

Farrah Abraham Fired

Over the weekend, Farrah was selling hugs, handshakes, and the opportunity to "chit chat" with her to anyone willing to meet her price.

Just wait until you see her price list.

San Diego Comic Con was just a few weeks ago, and it was full of dazzling trailers and even some surprise announcements that brought tears of joy to fans across the globe.

Bell County Comic Con took place on August 4 and 5 at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas.

And, for whatever reason, Farrah Abraham was there, as the eagle-eyed folks at The Ashley noticed.

Farrah Abraham Hug Prices

We know that comic con events can feature a diverse array of guests, from artists to actors to writers to directors.

But Teen Mom stars -- sorry, former Teen Mom stars -- are a little different from what you'd expect in a convention hall full of fans and cosplayers.

But that's not all. Farrah was there to make money.

If someone did wander over to Farrah -- perhaps to comment that she still looks as great as she did in Aliens when she faced off against Sigourney Weaver -- Farrah would charge them ten whole dollars to shake her hand.

Teen Mom fans all know where Farrah's hands have been.

Backdoor Teen Mom

Speaking of which, you could also purchase a hug from Farrah for $10.

If you wanted to avoid physical contact with Farrah while still listening to her speak, you could "chit chat" with her for $5.

We're envisioning a sign that reads "$5 Word Salads" but we imagine that Farrah would not advertise that way.

For $40, she would write her actual name for you.

Alternatively, you could spend those $40 on a photo of Farrah. Not a signed photo, mind you - just a photo op.

(That part, at least, is sort of normal.)

Dead Eyes

If you wanted Farrah to go so far as to sign her name on a photo of herself, therefore completing the prophecy and ushering in the end times?

That would cost you $70.

For $80, Farrah would star in a personalized video that you could use to impress all of your friends by showing off how poorly you use your money.

But it's not uncommon for stars to make money at convention appearances, right? So ... is this unusual?

In a word: yes.

Farrah Abraham's Red Hair

"We go to several cons a year," one bewildered con attendee wrote on Twitter. "And I have never seen anyone charge for a hug, handshake, or to freaking chit chat!"

"And I’ve met people from Ron Perlman to Norman Reedus to Chazz Palminteri!" that person continued. "Farrah Abraham is gross and desperate!"

Gross and desperate more or less summarizes her brand.

"Selling hugs … desperate much!?" wrote another person. "Who does that?!"

Farrah does - with a little help from daddy dearest Michael Abraham, who was also at the booth, selling physical and verbal contact with his daughter.

Michael Abraham Photo

There is nothing wrong with celebrities charging fans money to get a photo together. Some fans even use those photos to propose -- it's adorable.

There is also nothing wrong with sex work.

Your body is your body, and, morally speaking, you have every right to be compensated for what you do with it.

But many people take issue with what Farrah has been doing, and it's easy to see why if you get past all the nonsense.

Selling autographs is not the same thing as selling "chit chat" and gives the impression that she despises any and all contact with her fans.

True or not, her fans - and she really does have them, from what we can tell - are the only way that she stays in business.

Well, the only way that her remaining businesses stay open ... since her frozen yogurt store shut down and all.

Tough.

Amber Portwood Celebrates Andrew Glennon, One-Year Anniversary

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon have achieved a milestone.

The Teen Mom OG star and her boyfriend have now been together for a year.

And they've been going strong for that year, as well. 

Silly Andrew Glennon

This relationship has been surprisingly drama-free, which is terrific for Amber and Andrew, even if it's disappointing for a website such as this one that subsists on scandal.

“One year from yesterday I met this amazing man and it is truly a dream!” Portwood captioned an Instagram photo of Glennon Wednesday, August 1.

She then added simply:

“Happy 1 year Anniversary baby.”

Portwood met Glennon back when she was filming Marriage Boot Camp with former fiance Matt Baier.

Amber, of course, was a member of the Teen Mom cast back then, while Glennon worked as a cinematographer and producer on the program.

According to Amber and Andrew's telling, the latter reached out to Portwood after production wrapped and the pair proceeded to hit it off.

(Of course, according to various reports from several months ago, Portwood and Glennon actually slept together during the filming of this reality show.

They made their red carpet debut at the MTV Video Music Awards in August of 2017, as you can see below.

As for what Portwood sees in her man?

“[Andrew] doesn’t hit me or cheat on me so yeah I treat him like a real man,” Amber wrote in February of this year, taking a swipe at past lovers perhaps and adding:

“If you are a liar and cheater yeah bless your soul lol and get out of my way.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon

Three months after Portwood and Glennon alerted the world to their romance, they then dropped an even bigger bombshell.:

Amber was pregnant!

Portwood, who also shares a nine-year-old daughter named Leah with ex-fiancé Gary Shirley, gave birth to son James in May of this year.

To date, his photos look adorable and we hear he's happy and healthy and precious and we continue to be so very happy for Amber and Andrew.

Amber Portwood with Andrew Glennon

Now a year into their relationship, one question continues to hover over Portwood and Glennon:

When will they get married?

Heck, WILL they get married?!?

Portwood responded to this question in March when the topic was broached by Us Weekly.

We “haven’t talked about marriage or anything like that," she replied at the time, concluding:

"We’re happy where we’re at. If it happens, it happens and there’s no rush."

Kailyn Lowry Threatens Farrah Abraham: Meet Me in the Streets!

Amazingly, Farrah Abraham is willing to fight someone in a boxing match to promote anit-bullying.

If you think that it's absurd that Farrah, of all people, would think that she's the person to champion an anti-bullying event, you're not alone.

Kailyn Lowry is dragging Farrah over this, and even issues a veiled threat.

Kailyn Lowry Smile

Speaking to RadarOnlineKailyn Lowly says that Farrah Abraham is just about the worst person to headline an anti-bullying campaign.

"I think there are much better influencers," Kailyn says in a pretty epic understatement.

Specificially, Kail says that there is no shortage of famous folks "who would make more sense for this."

That said ...

"There are plenty of us who will take her up on this," Kailyn says, evoking images of people lining up for a chance to physically fight Farrah Abraham.

"I think Lindsey Nicholson is a good option," Kail suggests.

Lindsey Nicholson and Baby

Lindsey, of course, was on 16 and Pregnant. She also just happens to be a cage fighter.

"She knows what she's doing," Kailyn says.

Additionally, Kail gushes about Lindsey, saying: "She's an amazing person."

That is so sweet!

Kailyn notes that Lindsey would have a narrative appeal, adding: "And she has a story to tell."

Lindsey Nicholson and Kailyn Lowry

At the very leash, Kailyn says, she would be there to cheer on Lindsey if she entered the ring with Farrah.

"I'll be there to support her," Kail pledges.

Though of course Kailyn acknowledges that Farrah might be unwilling to fight Lindsey, adding: "if she gets it."

"And I'm sure," Kailyn adds, that "a few of my other costars would come out to support."

We don't doubt it!

Michael Abraham Photo

Of course, Farrah's dad also had something to say about Farrah's proposed fight.

"Too bad we won't see Drita fight," he says, referring to Farrah's feud with Drita D'Avanzo.

"She is like me," he says. "Way too old age group."

Drita is 42 years old and a Mob Wives star. Michael is a 61-year-old grandfather.

"And she is not one to promote anti-hate," Michael accuses.

Interesting, since it's his daughter who started their feud for no apparent reason.

Michael can't resist body-shaming Kailyn, adding: "And Kail is a lot higher weight class so that won't happen either, LOL!"

Kailyn Lowry, Burgundy Bikini

Kailyn heard Michael's disgusting bit of body-shaming and has a cool-headed response.

"Farrah's dad has a point," Kailyn acknowledges.

Kail goes on, saying: "I'm definitely not in Farrah's weight class."

That's true.

"However," Kail continues. "He shot himself in the foot with his comments about Drita and [me]."

She then very carefully insinuates that he and Farrah should watch their backs.

Kailyn says: "I don't think the streets care about age or weight." ... Dang, girl!

Lowry, Kail Pic

"Michael and Farrah will do anything to stay relevant," Kail states.

Yep. That's sort of their whole brand.

"Something is wrong with their relationship, too," Kail says of the twisted father and daughter. "I don't know; I don't get it."

Nobody gets it.

Kailyn also states the obvious, noting that Farrah's "comments and actions don't align with promoting anti-bullying."

Yep.

Farrah Abraham Dressed Like a Magician

Farrah, always the victim, says that she'd never fight a fellow Teen Mom star -- because they're too mean for her to punch.

"Those who bully would not be fit for an anti-bullying match," Farrah claims.

Quick, someone get her a mirror!

Farrah continues: "The Teen Mom cast is riddled with negativity, bullying, and acts that are unhealthy."

That is certainly true! But there's a little less of that now that Farrah is out.

"I look forward," Farrah says. "To going in the ring with someone with integrity."

What person of integrity would enter the ring with Farrah? Either someone intent on delivering an epic beatdown ... or someone who hasn't googled her.

Farrah wants to do this "so it's a great boxing match for all to watch."

Sure -- there are a lot of people who would love to see Farrah in a boxing match. Just not for the reasons that Farrah hopes.

"Count down," Farrah teases. "It's going to be huge."

Ryan Edwards: Refusing Rehab, "In Denial" About Heroin Addiction

Earlier this week, Ryan Edwards was released from jail after being arrested for yet another probation violation.

Ever since Edwards was arrested for heroin possession last year, he's been stuck in a seemingly endless downward spiral of legal troubles and other misfortunes.

But remarkably, Ryan apparently doesn't see things that way.

In fact, sources close to the situation say the troubled Teen Mom OG star is totally in denial about his addiction.

Jump into the gallery below to see what Edwards has to say about his growing problem.

Bristol Palin: Yes, I’m Divorced, Okay?!?

Bristol Palin may be a new Teen Mom.

But she's no longer a 27-year old wife.

The mother of three and the impending MTV star has confirmed that she has legally split from husband Dakota Meyer.

Bristol Palin and Husband

When a fan asked on her Instagram Stories page this week whether or not she was dating, Palin wrote back:

“Freshly divorced & single forever lezzbereal (I am not ready to date)."

She included these words and emphasized this status beside a photograph of her and her nine-year-old son Tripp at Disneyland.

The recently-hired Teen Mom OG cast member married Meyer in 2016 and they have two kids together, Sailor Grace, 2, and Atlee Bay, 14 months.

We first heard rumblings that the union was over in February of this year, but neither Palin nor Meyer had spoken out on the rumored break-up until this message.

Reports, meanwhile, now indicate that Meyer filed for divorce a few months ago, citing “discord or conflict of personalities” as the basis for his decision.

Despite this court filing, the estranged couple often posts family picture and snapshots of each other to their social media accounts; hence the speculation that they would reconcile or that they had reconciled.

But Bristol shot down both of these notions in her Wednesday evening Q&A on Instagram.

“Honestly (right this SECOND) no," she replied when asked if she would get married again, adding:

"my focus is on God & my kids… a relationship/guy isn’t even close on my radar.”

Bristol Palin answers

Palin's focus is also on raking in a $250,000 salary for a handful of Teen Mom OG episodes.

Indeed, fans of this series remain shocked that the daughter of ex-Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be screaming, yelling and crying each week just like future colleagues Amber, Catelynn and Maci have been doing for years.

Of course, this is not what Bristol and her famous mother claim Bristol will be doing.

Both are on record as saying Palin's presence on Teen Mom OG will send some sort of positive message to other young mothers of multiple kids.

"I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey," Bristol said shortly after her casting was announced.

Bristol and Some Kids

Sarah Palin, meanwhile, has shot down the idea that her child will be a "reality star," insisting instead that Bristol will just be... a role model, we guess?

"Bristol's gonna be a great messenger for overcoming a little bit of challenge and doing well in life," Palin told TMZ.

"She sees this as a venue, a forum, for good [and] to help people in a hurting world... I encourage her doing this, I support her doing this and I'm proud of her."

Yes, anchoring a reality program centered on feuds with baby daddies, co-stars and parents, while earning a six-fugure salary that you keep for yourself, is absolutely the way to help a hurting world.

God bless you and your noble career move, Bristol.

As for whether she would ever have more children down the line, Bristol told followers yesterday:

“I love babies, and love kids but I think I’m done having my own! I’d adopt if I was in the right place for sure.”

Elsewhere, other parents asked Bristol for advice when it came to raising their kids without a partner by their side, to which Palin wrote:

“Try your hardest, work hard, don’t search for someone to fill the emptiness you might feel by not being married.

"It gets easier, read good books, don’t dwell on the past, try to get along with your ex, just look at your kids and be THANKFUL!”

Tyler Baltierra Pens Candid, Heartfelt, Awe-Inspiring Tribute to Catelynn Lowell

Tyler Baltierra recently shared the story of his epic weight loss.

And it's very impressive, don't get us wrong.

But the Teen Mom OG veteran has impressed us even more with a tribute to wife Catelynn that makes it clear: He never, ever, ever wants to lose her.

Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn

With rumors of a divorce constantly swirling around Tyler and Catelynn, the former took to Instagram this week and poured his svelte heart out for all to see and swoon over.

“Life is really simple if you think about it," wrote Tyler to kick off a lengthy caption, which he attached to the photo above, prior to adding in far more detail:

"If you love something … fight for it. Sacrifice for it. Love it so much that it makes you want to love yourself in a way you never knew you were even capable of loving.

Continued Baltierra, who fans were convinced as recently last month was going to leave Catelynn:

"It’s been 13 years together & that’s not because of luck or us not arguing or not getting upset with one another …

"That’s because everyday, we choose to love each other unconditionally, with all the flaws & all the baggage our past lives has given us.”

Tyler with Catelynn

We love that perspective.

As they said, it's not about finding someone who is perfect, right? It's about finding someone who is perfect for YOU.

For his part, Tyler has always been very open about his struggles with mental health, specifically his bipolar order diagnosis.

Anyway. He wasn't done here gushing over his wife.

"We choose to listen to one another & be heard by one another," the MTV personality wrote, adding:

"We choose to confront our issues head on & fix them together. We choose to nurture our spiritual bond together & share lives ups and downs with one another.

"We are lovers in this life, so we can be soulmates in our afterlife."

Wow. That's some profound stuff right there, Ty.

Catelynn with Tyler

Baltierra and Lowell got married in August of 2015.

They are the parents to two kids, one of whom they gave up for adoption back when they were stars on 16 & Pregnant.

Overall, the couple's ups and downs have been documented at length on Teen Mom OG over the years, most notably Lowell's miscarriage last year that led her to enter a treatment facility due to sucidal thoughts.

“You Are Beautiful. You Are Worthy,” Tyler wrote to Catelynn in this mini online essay.

“You Are Strong. You Are Safe … & I love you more than this realm will allow me to express in all my desired ways.”

The Baltierras

Despite all the negative chatter surrounding her and her husband, Catelynn has always insisted than their relationship was stable.

“Tyler and I are not getting a divorce. Couples go through ups and downs. That’s normal life,” Lowell told Us Weekly in May, concluding at the time:

“We are a solid couple that will work through anything life throws at us.”

As of this writing, Tyler's tribute to Catelynn has been Liked over 186,000 times. People are clearly affected by his candor.

Which is great and everything.

But we're guessing there's only one person out there he cares about reading it and believing every word of it.

Tyler Baltierra Opens Up About Bipolar Disorder, Sticks It to Haters

Last week, Tyler Baltierra flaunted his weight loss by posting a thirst trap. But he's been making improvements in more than just his physical health.

Tyler has bipolar disorder, which presents a number of mental health hurdles that he has had to overcome.

In a new post, he lays out his description of the highs and lows of bipolar disorder -- and he has some choice words for his haters.

Tyler's poetry about mental illness is not a new thing to Teen Mom fans, but this time, he is really spelling out how bipolar disorder puts him in a precarious state.

"Bi Polar is like dancing on the edge of a cliff," Tyler writes ina  post shared to social media.

Bipolar disorder, formerly referred to as manic depression, involves oscillations between extremes.

"The good moods are full of endless euphoric adrenaline," Tyler says.

Those good moods -- manic episodes -- can lead a person to act impulsively to follow their bliss without thought for repercussions.

"But the bad moods," Tyler writes with poetic flare. "Cause a reclusive crash with an abusive rift."

The bad moods are when one is bogged down with depression and may feel that they'll never again know happiness or joy.

Continuing his poem, Tyler writes that these bad moods take place "when there’s just too much emotions to go through & sift."

"Which," Tyler continues. "Makes you trip down a long hard fall when you slip."

Though the highs of bipolar disorder feel better than the lows, both can be harmful to a person's life.

"After you lose that grip once that adrenaline filled dance inevitably makes you tip," Tyler explains.

After the poem, Tyler extended his message.

"I am not my diagnosis," Tyler affirms.

That is an important distinction. With medication, he is still himself -- but in a better state of mind.

Tyler's positive statements continue: "I am in control of my perceptions and my reactions."

Finally, he adds a tag: "#PoetryIsMyBrainsFreedom"

Tyler Baltierra fan replies 01

Tyler chose to highlight positive responses that he has received, sharing them to Instagram with a message.

"Just a reminder to all the haters out there..." Tyler begins.

For the record, he does get a few very vocal, nasty trolls. They question whether he even has bipolar disorder and ask intrusive, invasive questions demanding that he "prove" his diagnosis.

"For every ONE negative ignorant opinion about my poetry," Tyler announces. "There is more than DOUBLE the positive ones from these amazing people who are impacted by it"

The negative comments can turn very nasty. It's good that he has some positive feedback, too.

"They’re the reason I share it in the first place," Tyler explains. "So keep on hating or keep on scrolling, but that will NEVER change the fact that it’s touching people’s hearts & that’s what truly matters anyway."

"To all of my supporters," Tyler concludes. "I love you & can’t thank you enough, you are AMAZING."

Tyler Baltierra fan replies 02

Tyler posted a follow-up message regarding the hate that he receives.

"What’s ironic to me, is that everyone thinks I’m this depressed, unstable, 'moping in my own self pity' kind of guy."

Tyler explains that they assume this "just because I have been venting my vulnerable feelings through words, but that’s just my escape."

Self-expression through art is cathartic and healthy.

"It’s just a place to put them," Tyler explains of his feelings. "So they have a different home to belong to instead of on the shoulders of my spirit through life."

Tyler announces: "I’m actually the happiest I have been in a very long time!!!"
