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.

Kailyn Lowry: New Book an "Apology to Lux For the Mess He Was Born Into"

We've seen Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry use Twitter to destroy body-shamers, but she also uses social media to chat with followers ... and to share great news.

Kail's been working on her book, A Letter of Love, which promises to tell a whole side story about her life that MTV's cameras have never captured.

That book is now printing!

Selfie with Lux

Taking to Twitter, Kailyn tweeted: "Beyond excited!"

No, this isn't excitement about her fight with Briana DeJesus. This is something very positive.

"My publisher @iamardreorie just delivered the news," Kail gushes.

Kailyn then reveals "that copies of my new book 'A Letter of Love' are printing!"

That is so exciting!

Kailyn Lowry Smile

"And," Kailyn continues. "The support from you guys has been overwhelming!"

Kail is a sweetheart and she always gives a shout-out to her fans.

"I’m finally telling my side of the story," she writes.

Remember, everything that we've seen on Teen Mom 2 has been told through the lens (literally!) of MTV.

Their job is to make entertainment, not tell Kail's story.

That's okay, but it means that a lot of fans don't have the real picture. Kailyn tweets that she can share her narrative "my way." At last.

Playing on the Beach

Back in January, Kailyn explained the origins of her new tell-all book.

"The book was an apology letter to Lux," Kail revealed.

Sometimes, the idea for a book grows out of a single thought or piece of writing -- even a tweet.

Kailyn shared that she was apologizing "for basically the mess he was born into."

That sounds so healthy. More parents should take the time to consider the world into which they're bringing children.

A lot of kids are owed apologies.

Lowry and Sons

"And," Kailyn continued, she also wanted to express to Lux "how bad I feel."

Naturally, it grew into something a little more -- and Kailyn's book is about her sons Lincoln and Isaac, too.

Kailyn explained: "But now it's to all three of them."

"I feel bad and I’m nervous about how a lot of my decisions will impact them or affect them," Kailyn explained.

"So I’m apologizing to all of them," Kail said. "And I want them to know how much I love them and I’m working now to pick up the pieces."

Kailyn and Her Family

We think that they know better than anyone how much she loves them and how she does her best for them every day.

A Letter of Love is currently available for preorder from 13 & Joan Publishing.

Kail is no newcomer to the publishing scene, of course. She's already an author.

Fans are of course familiar with Hustle and Heart and with Pride Over Pity

I'd say that I'm crushed that she's deviating from alliteration for this new book, but she did that before with Love is Bubblegum.

(Kail is so busy!)

Unfortunately, we all remember when Chris Lopez burned a copy of Kailyn's last book. It was not one of his finer moments.

Hopefully, this new book can avoid meeting a similar fate. After all, it is about and written to Chris' son.

David Eason’s Mom Slams Barbara Evans: He Doesn’t Beat Jenelle! Shut Yer Yap! [Exclusive]

Barbara Evans has been outspoken when it comes to her daughter Jenelle Evans’ husband David Eason, who she believes is dangerous.

David's own mother tells a different story, however, telling Barb off in a lengthy missive shared exclusively with The Hollywood Gossip.

Jenelle, Dave Eason

According to Barbara, David is a violent, aggressive, hot-tempered, controlling yahoo - with a penchant for firearms, no less. 

Bit of a worrisome combination right there.

On the Teen Mom 2 reunion on Monday, August 13, Jenelle Evans didn’t show up, but Barbara did - and she didn't hold back.

Babs openly speculated on MTV that Jenelle no-showed the reunion because her husband wouldn't let her out of his sight.

“I don’t feel Jenelle is OK,” Barbara said.

“I’m just so so so worried.”

Jenelle Evans, David Eason and Barbara Evans

Due to David Eason's aggression and love of guns, Barbara even said, “I’m going to be the first one shot cause I live closest.”

“It scares me," she said of living in fear of him.

"He could come over and kill me any time.”

Scary stuff ... but complete nonsense, according to another figure who claims she knows him - and his family - better than Barbara:

David's mom, Mary Jo Eason.

Barb Evans

Having heard several versions of this same, savage theme from Barb (above), Mary Jo has had just about enough, telling THG:

“I don't like to comment on all of this because someone will be there to tell me they know more than I do about my own son!"

"My son does not beat Jenelle or boss her around! He doesn't beat the children!" she adds, before addressing Babs directly:

"Barb you know he doesn't! Tell the truth and shame the devil! You should be trying to help your daughter and her family."

David, Jenelle Eason

"You never say anything nice," she says, pointedly directed at a woman she believes lies, manipulates and distorts the truth.

"You hated David from the start ... you would rather be on that stupid show then [sic] be a loving parent and grandmother!"

(Jenelle has echoed this sentiment recently, accusing her mom of using her for fame and alleging that Barbara is the real child abuser.

The younger Evans also called 911 on Babs last winter, claiming that her mom had harmed or was going to harm son Jace.)

Jenelle Evans Dude Shirt

Mary Jo, she says, is "there every week," while Ensley, David and Jenelle's young daughter, "doesn't even know [Barbara]." 

"How can you keep right on saying horrible things about my son? They are happy and you can't stand it! I'm so sick of so many lies!" 

"Our children and grandchildren don't deserve to be pawns in your nasty games!" Mary Jo continues, pleading with Barbara to stop.

"I've always been nice to you and your daughter and your grandchildren. How about try to put love and understanding and help in their lives."

Jenelle Evans' Best Picture

"Family and love for your family is all that matters," Mary Jo pleads. "Please be honest and stop your vendetta."

"You are only a year older than me. Don't you know with each passing day our time in this Earth gets shorter."

Damn. Now she's getting deep.

In closing, David's mother wants Barbara - and everyone else - to think before they repeat what they think is true.

There are usually multiple sides to a story, but she implies that Barb (and the media) only follow one narrative.

David and Jenelle Eason Photo

Obviously, David Eason is a bit of a loose cannon who has a bit of a temper. That much is obvious to any Teen Mom 2 viewer.

But his mom's point isn't that he's a saint, it's that claiming he's going beat or shoot someone with no provocation is way out of bounds.

"All of you that keep saying things because you just think them should search your heart and soul and stop," she concludes.

"David is my son and I know him better than all of you that don't! I'm sure I'll have to delete this but I have to speak up for my son."

"He loves his family.”

Well, there you have his side of the story. Do you believe her? Or is David every bit the dangerous person Barbara alleges?

Discuss.

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.

Dakota Meyer Instagram Stories Divorce Advice 01

"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.

Dakota Meyer Instagram Stories Divorce Advice 02

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.

Kailyn Lowry Destroys Body-Shamer on Twitter: I Wear What I Want!

We all know that Kailyn Lowry isn't afraid to throw down, whether it's in a bonkers fight with Brianna DeJesus or when she's firing a producer who violated her trust.

So when some troll on Twitter had the audacity to try to body-shame her, it's no surprise to see her hit back.

Take a look at how she clapped back!

Kailyn Lowry, Burgundy Bikini

Some absolute troll took to Twitter to admonish Kail and her bff, Bone Estrada, to "dress more appropriately" for their "bodies."

The line about how they dress would have been bad enough on its own -- too many people feel entitled to tell women how to dress.

Adding "for their bodies" adds a layer of body-shaming, which is equally inexcusable.

The implication behind this gross sentiment is that people have to look a certain way in order to wear certain clothing.

Clearly, the dweeb who wrote this (now deleted) tweet felt that Kail doesn't have the "right body type" to wear what she wears.

Kailyn Lowry Smile

Kail saw it, quoted the tweet, and replied.

"We didn't ask you," Kailyn tweeted.

She's right -- neither she nor Bone asked. But that didn't stop this rando from projectile vomiting their terrible opinion onto social media.

"We," Kailyn affirmed. "Will wear what we want."

Good for them!

Kailyn Lowry in Her Calvins

Unfortunately, our society has an embarrassment of body-shaming.

As a plus size woman who is also a public figure, Kailyn bears the brunt of a lot of this.

For a variety of cultural reasons, a lot of people feel that they have a right or even a duty to tell women how to dress or how to appear.

The sheer audacity of someone on a street telling another woman what to do with her face -- usually to smile -- is just the tip of the iceberg.

On social media, these people rely upon relative anonymity and upon being part of a chorus of voices and say things that are even worse.

Kailyn Lowry Ad

Sometimes, these unwelcome statements and pieces of unsolicited advice are poorly disguised as sagely wisdom, for the receiver's benefit.

This is called concern-trolling, and it is never cute.

The person whose now-deleted tweet told Kail and her friend to dress differently for their bodies wasn't yelling abuse at them, and may have thought that they were doing the women a favor.

But women do not exist simply to be pleasant for someone to look at.

And, for the record, Kailyn looks just fine in whatever she wears -- but that's beside the point. Even if Kail looked like a gorgon, she could still wear whatever she likes.

Kailyn Lowry Topless

We're not saying that we always agree with Kailyn Lowry.

Her decision to reunite with Chris Lopez made a number of Teen Mom 2 fans uneasy, even though it was for Lux's first birthday party.

Like so many people (like too many people, really), Kail has been unlucky in love -- many times. Every time, really.

Despite that, she manages to be a total champ at coparenting, even though her relationships with a couple of exes are deeply complicated.

Good for Kail for standing up for herself and countless other women when she could have just ignored the trolling.

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.

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.

Farrah Abraham Flashes the Camera at Cannes

"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."

Kailyn Lowry: Maci Bookout Is Totally Pregnant!

Right after Kailyn Lowry was body-shamed by Farrah Abraham's dad, eagle-eyed fans are making some body comments on Kail's photos.

But it's not Kailyn's body that's earned their focus -- it's Maci Bookout. Fans point out that Maci looks like she's sporting a baby bump.

And they're going after Kailyn for leaking this photo before Maci is ready to tell the world!

Kailyn Lowry and Maci Bookout Group Photo

Fans took a break from worrying that Kailyn Lowry is already pregnant again to point out that, to their eyes, Maci Bookout looks pregnant in this pic.

One fan commented: "Maci is so pregnant."

Another wrote: "hope Maci's pregnant. She definitely looks it here."

"Although it could be the shirt," that commenter concedes. "She makes the CUTEST babies."

She sure does.

Then, another blasted Kailyn for "revealing Maci's pregnancy" by sharing the photo.

Selfie with Lux

Kail saw that comment and wrote back immediately: "Except I didn't."

First of all, she didn't leak or reveal anything except a group photo for Coffee and Convos, her podcast.

Kailyn explained the optical illusion that was making fans think that Maci is pregnant.

"It's the way the shirt was flowing," Kail clarifies.

We think that she's right. Maci is tall but was leaning forward slightly in that photo.

Here's Maci's most recent pic on Instagram. 

Maci Bookout Is Not Pregnant

it could have been taken at almost any time, sure, but ... she sure doesn't look pregnant to us.

Folks, Maci already has three children.

Bentley, Jayde, and Maverick are enough.

If she wants more kids, she can have them, but fans shouldn't get greedy just because they crave the oxytocin rush that comes from looking at baby pictures.

Of course, Maci has entertained the idea before -- she spoke to Taylor about the idea of a fourth child, though she also expressed an interest in adoption.

Kailyn Lowry, Burgundy Bikini

The fact of that matter is that some of these fans may have genuinely believed that Maci was pregnant.

Others may have just hoped that she was, or gone along with what others were saying because they wanted to feel like they were on the cutting edge of a breaking story.

And then, of course, there were those who were just trolling for a reaction from Kailyn, who is known to engage with her fans and commenters.

Lookin' at you, person who decided that Kail sharing a group photo that was clearly intended to go public was actually her being a bad friend to Maci and revealing her secrets.

Sometimes, commenters need to chill.

Maci Bookout: Naked and Afraid

As we mentioned, Maci and Taylor have spoken about another child.

That could happen via birth or via adoption.

(It is even possible, based upon Maci's own words, that she might have another child and adopt)

If and when that happens, we have no doubts that her friend Kailyn will take every step to protect her privacy until she's good and ready to tell the world.

Who knows better than a fellow Teen Mom how personal a baby bump can be?

Maci can no longer enjoy that Ryan Edwards is in jail, because he was released, but she still has the support of her friends.

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 Baltierra, Instagram Selfie

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."

Tyler Baltierra Pens Poetry About Bipolar Disorder

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.

Tylier Baltierra Posts Weight Loss Thirst Trap

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!!!"

Farrah Abraham: I Have a Bun in My Oven!!!

After recent claims that Farrah Abraham is an out-of-control drunk, the last thing that Teen Mom fans want to see is any additional children under her care.

On Thursday, Farrah made an ominous reference on social media to the "bun" in her "oven." She was not talking about baking.

Is Farrah ... pregnant?

Farrah Abraham Fired

Thursday, July 26, Farrah wrote a message in her Instagram Live story. It was a message that sent chills down the spines of her followers and set off alarm bells in their minds.

"The bun that’s in my oven is my business," Farrah wrote.

Fans covered their mouths in horror, because when you say that you have a bun in the oven, that expression almost always means that the person is pregnant.

The only other meaning in English is that there is literally a bun in a literal oven, but because of the prominence of the euphemism for pregnancy, people usually find another way to say that.

Teen Mom fans, who would not want to see any additional children condemned to have their whole worlds revolve around Farrah, were shaken.

Fortunately, HollywoodLife reached out to the former Teen Mom OG star and Farrah cleared things up.

"I’m totally not pregnant," Farrah assures.

Let's all just take a moment to take a deep breath and breathe a sigh of relief.

"The message I posted on my Instagram stories," Farrah explains. "Is solely about me focusing on my business right now."

Obviously Farrah's frozen yogurt shop is not an option, since that place abruptly closed.

Farrah says that she's a businesswoman "and putting all my effort into that."

In other words, it sounds like this is a case of Farrah misusing the English language in new, terrible ways.

Which is ... extremely on brand for Farrah.

The former Teen Mom OG star is infamous for her word salad, whether she's speaking or writing.

Some people can become flustered at times or struggle to communicate clearly when writing. Farrah can be incoherent in any medium.

She's a woman of many talents. Sort of.

Farrah and Sophia Kisses

Recently, Farrah began training in boxing. And she was not shy when asked about whom she would like to fight.

"Maybe some of the Teen Moms who talk trash about me and bully me," Farrah says.

Nothing says I'm totally anti-bullying like I would like to punch people.

"Maybe some of the producers who bullied me off the show I created with them," Farrah adds. "So maybe Morgan Freeman should step out."

To be clear, that is the name of one producer in particular. Not the actor.

"Drita said she wanted a piece of this," Farrah adds of the former Mob Wives star with whom she's been feuding. "But I don’t know if she’s for anti-bullying cause she’s all about bullying."

"I just want to make sure I know what I’m doing and look my best," Farrah concludes. "Like I’m Floyd Mayweather stepping in the ring for the women."

Floyd Mayweather, who is the absolute opposite of an advocate for women, is a really odd person to bring up in this context. Oh, Farrah.

Now, we give Farrah a hard time, but only because she deserves it.

Farrah isn't the worst mom in the world -- or even the worst mom from the Teen Mom franchise (Jenelle!).

But even if we ignore Farrah's recent screwed up dead dog drama, simply the idea of a child learning English from her is enough to keep us awake at night.

Even if Farrah finally gets to bone her clone, we hope that she lets Sophia remain an only child.

Tyler Baltierra Flaunts WILD Weight Loss in New Thirst Trap!

Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra has shown off his insane weight loss in recent weeks, but he's been working to do more than just shed some pounds.

He's working hard to tone his body and regain his abs. And, as you can see below, it is clearly working.

There's a fine line between sharing your body transformation progress and posting a thirst trap, and Tyler may have just crossed it.

Tyler Baltierra and Fancy Jacket

It's not #TransformationThursday yet, but clearly Tyler Baltierra was happy to share his extraordinary progress with his fans and followers.

"Five months ago, I was 208" pounds, Tyler Baltierra shares in the caption of the photo that he shared with Snapchat followers.

208 can be a lot or a little, depending upon your height and build. At only 5-foot-11, he was feeling a little to large at that size.

"... Today?" he continues. "163! #BOOM."

That's a 45 pound weight loss in only 5 months. That's 9 pounds a month! And just look at the results:

Tylier Baltierra Posts Weight Loss Thirst Trap

Like we said, he isn't just walking the line between a fitness pic and a thirst trap. He crossed it.

But why shouldn't he? He's really transformed his look this year.

His pecs and abs are looking top notch. His hard work is obviously paying off, and he has every right to flaunt the results to the world.

This is a great reminder that all of this is about more than just shedding some unwanted pounds.

Tyler has detailed his mental health struggles online. He's also sharing his efforts to improve his physical health.

Beside the side-by-side ab pics below, Tyler writes: "1 month before (LEFT) & after! (RIGHT)"

"Finally making some progress on this goal of mine," he proudly shares with his fans and followers.

"I think It’s important to document your journey," Tyler says. "Even if you don’t ever decide to share it."

For some people pursuing weight loss, the photos at the start of their efforts aren't the sort that they would ever want to share. That's fine.

But Tyler explains why it's important to keep a personal photo journal.

Tyler Baltierra Working on His Fitness

What he's describing here is what fitness folks refer to as personal accountability photos. Some share them daily.

"Because the days you don’t feel like putting in the work because either you don’t feel like you’re seeing results or you’re just feeling lazy as hell," Tyler explains. 

He continues, saying that: "those are the days those pics come in handy to motivate & prove to yourself what you are doing & why!"

"40lbs down & only 2 months of consistently working out...BOOM!" he announces.

And that's up to 45, now.

"For once in my life," Tyler says. "I’m actually pumped & pretty proud of myself!"

He has a lot of reason to be proud!

Unfortunately, some naysayers are already claiming that all of this body-sculpting is going to lead Tyler Baltierra to leave Catelynn Lowell.

They say that Catelynn might enjoy Tyler's new body now, but that we're only a few months away from news of a separation.

Though working out can be a red flag for an affair or an impending breakup, it can also just mean that someone wants to improve their health or self esteem.

And while it's true that one partner suddenly changing their lifestyle can lead to a split, that doesn't mean that it always happens.

Tyler and Catelynn have been together since they were twelve years old. It's hard to imagine that some abs, however nice, are going to break them up.

Besides, as we said, Catelynn really likes what Tyler's done with himself.

Farrah Abraham Says She Wants to Date Male "Clone" of Herself in Latest Word Salad

The Maxim Hot 100 event took place in Los Angeles over the weekend. For some reason, Farrah Abraham was there.

While there, Farrah took a break from dreaming about giving her daughter plastic surgery and spoke about her favorite subject -- herself.

Specifically, she spoke about the dos and don'ts of dating, and mentioned that her ideal boyfriend would just be a boy version of herself.

Farrah Abraham in Boy Drag, Single AF

At the The Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, July 21, Farrah Abraham spoke to Us Weekly about her romantic life.

And she describes her perfect man.

"Look," Farrah says. "If I could find a clone of me in a man, I’d date him."

If went into shock and are suddenly covered with cold sweat at the thought of a clone of Farrah ... you are not alone.

"Yes," Farrah affirms.

We can only imagine that a male clone of Farrah would be delighted to find someone willing to actually date him.

If you, whether you're a Farrah Clone or simply some person who for whatever reason thinks that dating Farrah might be a non-horrifying activity, she has some advice.

"I don’t even like pick-up lines," Farrah reveals.

Honestly, who does? The really good ones are rare, and even then, they're mostly just good for receiving in a text so that you can screencap them for a viral post on social media.

"I think recently," Farrah recalls. "A guy just like invited me and my daughter to go like boogie board or do something."

While inviting a child on dates isn't always appropriate, of course, showing that you're happy to include someone's child can be a great move when you're dating a single parent.

Farrah says that she accepted the invite, "and it turned out to be an amazing day."

Farrah Abraham Photoshop Fail

"We met in person," Farrah explains of this unnamed mystery man. "Actually at one of our agencies I work with."

"I didn’t know him," she reveals. "He didn’t know me."

Oh, that might explain why he asked her out, then.

Farrah explains how she responded to his overture: "It was just like, OK, let’s just like meet up and go out."

Yep. That's how it works.

"And it was just very nice," Farrah says. "So we loved it."

Farrah continues, and seems to refer to her ex, stunt performer Aden Shay.

"I need to watch whom I date," Farrah laments. "As many men target me for my success."

Well, success is relative. But most would consider it a red flag if some dude wants to ride Farrah's coattails to Farrah levels of fame.

"I’m focused on work right now," Farrah clarifies. "Between TV and film projects."

As you may recall, Farrah thinks that J.J. Abrams is going to make a movie about her life.

Farrah's mind is . . . one of a kind. Until she makes this clone thing happen, we suppose.

Farrah Abraham Sucks at Photoshop

Even surrounded by the women whom Maxim considers to be the most beautiful on the planet, Farrah was feeling very confident on Saturday.

"I’m feeling sexy. I’m feeling really sexy tonight,” she announced. “I’m wearing Fashion Nova, and I’m feeling really hot."

Well, it's L.A. in July. It's a sun-baked dessert.

Farrah does reveal that she wants to keep her "dating life low-key."

We'll believe it when we don't hear about it.

Javi Marroquin Moves in with Lauren Comeau: Take THAT, Briana DeJesus!

Is anyone else super uncomfortable with how Javi Marroquin has been behaving lately?

Well, lately, for the entire time he's been on Teen Mom 2, either one.

At the Ballgame

There's just something that's so questionable about the way he went from wanting to marry Briana DeJesus to hooking up with Kailyn Lowry to knocking up Lauren Comeau in the span of a few months.

And honestly, "a few months" is pretty generous.

Like, let's break this down: Javi and Briana broke up in January, right?

On last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, we saw him tell her that if she didn't want to move to Delaware to be with him, then Lauren would -- and honestly, who says that to someone?

What did he think would happen?

Did he think that Briana would trip all over herself to be the lucky girl to leave her entire life behind to move in with a guy she'd been dating for a handful of months?

Did he think that threatening to move Lauren in would get her to change her mind about marrying him?

Briana De Jesus Pic

It was a super weird moment that we have to imagine Lauren wasn't too happy to see, but let's carry on.

So Briana and Javi broke up in January, and shortly after that, he started hooking up with Kailyn for a little while.

The official story is that he began dating Lauren again in March, but we're not too sure about that -- she look very, very pregnant right now, and if he's had her on the back burner that long ...

The whole thing is just a little too bizarre for our tastes, and it definitely makes us think less of Javi "please someone marry me and give me so many children and make my fairy tale come true" Marroquin.

But, as he reveals in a new interview with Radar Online, the marriage part isn't happening.

At least not right now.

"Definitely in the future I will propose," he explains. "The focus is on the baby first."

Lauren Comeau Photo

So that's good, isn't it?

It certainly seems like they rushed into having a baby together, so at least they're not rushing into another huge move.

And speaking of huge moves, Javi also says that he and Lauren are no longer long distance!

"She's officially moved into my house," he tells the website. "We got a new place and we'll be moving there in two weeks."

"It's nice to have her here. We've been traveling non-stop so it's nice that she doesn't have to travel."

It's not only nice for Javi and Lauren, it's also nice for Lincoln, Javi's son with Kailyn -- Javi says that she's a "fantastic" stepmother already.

Javi and Lauren's Big Announcement

"She's really good to Lincoln," he gushes. "He loves her and he asks about her all the time. He's happy she's here permanently."

And just in case you thought he was done hyping this whole thing up, think again -- he also says that they were excited to learn they're expecting a boy!

"I had a feeling it was going to be a boy," he admitted. "I'm super excited for a boy. They're super easy."

That's sweet and all, and we're glad that he seems so genuinely pumped about this whole thing.

But can Briana please comment on this already?

Because after everything we know now, we're dying to hear what she has to say about Javi's brand new fairy tale.

Jason Jordan: Leah Messer’s Boyfriend Caught BEGGING FOR METH Online!

It's been a matter of days since fans learned of Leah Messer's new boyfriend.

While they want to be happy for her, they can't help but be a little worried at a series of hastily-deleted videos that fans uncovered.

Across multiple strange videos, Leah's new boo begs for meth. Oh dear.

Jason Jordan Photo

Just a short time ago, there was a series of disturbing YouTube videos about a West Virginia Meth Man.

One was titled "West Virginia meth man finds his woman?" And yes, Jason Jordan was the man in question.

"Reckon I could be persuaded, given you're providing some meth," Leah's new boyfriend said on camera. 

"Maybe we could talk a little bit?" he continued, suggesting: "Maybe meet up? Have a drink? Maybe? I need my meth!"

In a subsequent video, he resorted to singing.

"Bout to go score me some meth!" he sang. "Meth, I love you. I shoot it in my veins. I snort it up my nose. I smoke it in a pip. Meth, meth, meth, you're my best friend."

Leah Messer on Insta

Remember the world's collective horror when that elevator video showed Ray Rice punch his fiancee?

Unfortunately, Jason Jordan had some commentary on that.

"Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice," he said in yet another West Virginia Meth Man video.

If you're thinking that there's no way that this can end well ... you're right.

"Think he can go around punching women in the mouth?" he asked. "Knocking them out cold?!"

Leah Messer Selfie

The now-deleted video continues: "When I was high on meth one time, I did it and nobody got mad at me!"

"They just expect it out of me," Jason Jordan concluded.

In his very first video in the YouTube series, he at least avoided joking about domestic violence while referring to meth.

"You do meth for six months," he lamented on camera. "And people think there is something wrong with you."

"Come on!" he said. "Everybody's doing it! I'm fine!"

Leah Messer on Camera

While all of that would understandably make anyone cringe, let's be clear -- this is not a series of videos of confessing to using drugs.

Instead, these are strange parody videos that Jordan made with the hope of amusing himself and others.

"My meth man videos got me kicked off fb lol," he tweeted after getting banned from Facebook.

He then advertised that they would be appearing on YouTube ... and provided a little context.

"Jason Jordan meth man on YouTube lol," his tweet continued. "Making fun of West Virginia meth addicts lol."

Leah Messer Possible Baby Bump

So no, Jason Jordan isn't a meth addict who begs for meth on the internet.

He has just, in the past, exhibited wildly questionable taste. Perhaps he was hoping that his "edgy humor" would make him achieve viral fame.

You have to actually be funny for that, folks.

Whatever it is that Leah sees in him, we hope that it's not a sense of humor.

But we're happy for her that she's moving on romantically. And since he's deleted these videos, it looks like he's embarrassed about that chapter of his life online.

If he had tried to defend them, well ... that would be another story. If all that someone's done is cracked some bad jokes, let them move on.

Kailyn Lowry Posts Precious New Photo of Her Three Sons!

Even though Kailyn Lowry says that her kids are done filming Teen Mom 2 ... sort of ... fans can still see plenty of her beautiful boys on social media.

Kailyn just put up a series of gorgeous family snaps with her precious sons.

Fans were absolutely over the moon and could not stop raving about the photos. Though a few so-called fans made truly horrifying comments. ...

Kailyn Lowry and Three Sons, Family Photo

This whole photo looks so good!

Kail herself looks absolutely amazing, and as you're about to see, fans took notice.

And her boys are all growing up so quickly!

Isaac Elliot Rivera, her oldest boy, is 8

Lincoln Marshall Marroquin, her son with the infamous Javi, is 4

And then there's Lux Russell Lowry, who is still a baby at just 11 months.

Kailyn Lowry, Three Sons on the Beach

(Theyr'e so adorable!)

"Cute family picture," one fan commented.

"This picture should be framed or put in a canvas beautiful looking great Kail!!!!!!!," another fan gushed.

"Such handsome boys!" reads another comment. "Beautiful family photo."

Like we mentioned, some fans and followers were throwing heart eyes at the mother of three.

"You’re looking fit!" one noted. "Are you doing anything in particular?"

Kailyn Lowry, Three Sons in Bed

Fans continued to shower the family with compliments, with one writing: "Beautiful momma of 3 handsome boys."

"Oh my goodness how lovely [red heart emoji] your little boy is so adorable," another says. "I have one that age too."

She ... she has three little boys of three different ages. We have no idea whether that commenter referred to Isaac, Lincoln, or Lux.

"I love you [purple heart emoji] and your boys are so cute," a fan wrote. "Lux is adorable Lincoln and Isaac are getting so big you're such an amazing mother."

"Great pic," another declared. "And the boys are getting so big!"

Lux Russell Lowry Turns 11 Months Old

(Lux just turned 11 months old last week!)

Unfortunately, not all fans had the most positive things to say.

"Lux out here lookin like Fabio w that hair," one wrote.

Now, that one is sort of ambiguous, but though it should be flattering, some people use Fabio comparisons as a "subtle" way of demanding that a boy or man have shorter hair. Ugh.

Other comments were downright racist.

"All different colours as well. That’s so embarrassing," wrote one inexcusably vile commenter. "3 kids, 3 different dads, 3 different colours. Major thot alerttt."

If you're fixating on the racial makeup of children in a family photo, you're being racist. Be better.

"Gosh lux looks like he doesn’t belong," wrote one commenter, as if racism is a fine thing to express. "The other two are gorgeous though very good looking boys well done kail doing a great job."

Kailyn Lowry, Burgundy Bikini

(Kail looks especially good this summer, and we know that Kail never photoshops her bikini pics)

Other fans had comments that were sort of strange compliments.

"I think it’s so neat that when you look at the boys as a group they don’t overly look alike," began one comment.

That person continued, writing: "but as soon as you add YOU to the photo they all look similar to you. It’s like you’re quite literally the piece that holds the puzzle together"

Like we said, it's not exactly an insult, but it's super weird to say.

"They are very adorable and you are rocking motherhood," writes a much more straightforward fan. "Even if we don’t see it all on tv, single mom of 3 boys is a tough job. You make it look like a dream job."

That is very high praise for the gorgeous mother of three.

Teen Mom 2: Who’s the Real MVP of This Season … and Franchise!?

It is about to be totally on between the Teen Mom 2 cast members, THG Nation. No, there's no new scandal you missed.

There was no fresh shade thwon between Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans, Briana DeJesus, Chelsea Houska or Leah Messer.

But there is a debate to be had.

Over the past several months, we've been exposed to one explosive fight after another; one allegation of child abuse after ...

... actually, there's been just one allegation of child abuse so far, but that's a story for another time (and another time, and another).

Bottom line: the prominence of Teen Mom 2 news and gossip has forced us to think about this MTV show more than ever.

With many arguments breaking out within THG Headquarters, our staff has decided to come together below to settle this:

WHO IS THE MVP OF TEEN MOM 2? Below, we make the case for Kail, Jenelle, Briana, Chelsea and Leah ...

1. Kailyn Lowry: The Resilient Success Story.

Classic kailyn
As with any Teen Mom 2 star, Kailyn has had her ups and downs. She became a mother at 17 years old while appearing on the second season of MTV's 16 and Pregnant. First, fans watched Kail grapple with a lack of support from her family. Being pregnant as teenager is hard enough without having rely upon your baby daddy's family.

2. Unlucky in Love

Javi kailyn and kids
Then, on Teen Mom 2, fans have gotten to watch this unlucky-in-love mother struggle with romance, additional pregnancies, and with co-parenting. Once you dig through the ins and outs with Javi Marroquin, the sometimes frightening drama with Chris Lopez, and all of the frustrations of being a reality star, she's a mom.

3. She's Their Whole World

Kailyn lowry three sons
To Isaac, Lincoln, and baby Lux, Kailyn is their whole world. And though her taste in men leaves much to be desired, she is a much, much better parent than some of her co-stars. She seems to have mastered co-parenting as much as anyone in her situation possibly could, juggling holiday events with baby daddies and even their extended families.

4. Kail Does Not Mince Words

Kailyn lowry in her calvins
On top of everything else, Kail is not afraid to be open and honest with her fans on social media, whether it's about her bisexuality or her careful decisions regarding plastic surgeries.

5. Hustle and Heart

Kailyn lowry ad
She's taken plenty of flak for having three kids with three different guys, but Lowry's not looking for handouts. She recently graduated from Delaware State and is always hustling - whether it's promoting products, her own books and podcast, or embarking in other business ventures.

6. Never a Dull Moment

It doesn't hurt that she's very entertaining. Just saying. - Simon Delott
