Farrah Abraham Staged Her Wardrobe Malfunction, Of Course

Remember how Farrah Abraham flashed her vagina at Cannes? 

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

We're kidding. It was by design.

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

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

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

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

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

Yeah. Well, she hadn't.

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

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

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

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

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

Still, Oceans 8, this is not.

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

Why was it planned?

Why does Farrah do anything?

1. Attention.

2. Money (which comes from attention).

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

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

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

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

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

Farrah's appeared nude before.

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

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

A nip slip gets more attention than a topless selfie.

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

Society is weird.

Even Farrah knows this.

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

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

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

Because that will get old faster than she may realize.

Only time will tell.

Kailyn Lowry: My Boobs Are TOO HUGE!

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is stacked, folks.

We only bring this up because she is bringing it up, saying that her boobs are so large and unwieldy that they're interfering with her daily life.

It's gotten to the point that she's considering once again considering getting a breast reduction.

Kailyn Lowry on Her Podcast

Speaking on her podcast, Coffee Convos, Kail reveals that her breasts are a challenge and they impede her workouts.

"I’m having a really hard time with sports bras."

Specifically, with wearing them. Because they don't seem to be equipped to contain her boobs.

(Which is, after all, the job of sports bras)

"And I don’t know if it’s just me or that my tits are so massive that I just need a reduction."

Earlier this year, she decided against a boob job, and decided to spend that money on a nutritionist and start working out.

But her efforts to shed pounds are being actively impeded by her boobs.

Kailyn Lowry in Her Calvins

Kailyn explains the very practical difficulties of having a bust like hers while trying to exercise:

"I’ll run or do box jumps and my whole boob will come out of a sports bra."

That's a pain (literally) indoors, but if she's running outside and someone sees her, that would be so much worse.

"So I’ll look down and my nip is out."

Looking down and finding that you're exposed is a recurring element in many people's nightmares.

Her cohost offers a couple of solutions that are less drastic than going under the knife.

Kailyn Lowry Topless

Lindsie Chrisley suggest that she might try wearing two sports bras in order to contain her bazongas. or that she could use duct tape to keep things in check.

But it sounds like Kail is giving up on the idea of non-surgical remedies.

"Maybe that’s not necessary and I just got a little bit of a reduction."

You know that she's struggling when plastic surgery, a major move -- even if you've had it before -- seems like the more viable option.

"Because I know with weight loss they will get smaller, but I think they are so big at this point!"

In other words, she wants to work out to lose weight, including from her boobs.

But her boobs are actively interfering with her efforts to shed the weight through exercise.

It's a sick joke, but a lot of people find their attempts to lose weight impeded by the weight itself.

Earlier this year, after Kailyn revealed that she had backed out of her trip to see Dr. Miami, she was assailed by tweets.

The body-shaming reduced her to tears. It was heartbreaking.

Some so-called "fans" were shaming her for having considered cosmetic surgery in the first place.

Some considered it lazy, while others were excoriating her for wanting to change her body.

(It's her flesh prison and she can change it however she likes)

Others were shaming her for backing out, essentially ridiculing for keeping her current figure.

People can be disgusting.

Kailyn Lowry Nude!

Kailyn Lowry is beautiful just the way that she is.

If she wants to lose weight through diet and exercise, more power to her.

If she wants to shed weight through cosmetic surgery, she is free to do that. It's her money and her body and her life, and it's none of anyone else's business.

For the record, they make specialized sports bras for women who are encountering Kail's exact problem. We don't know if she's tried those.

But ultimately, she doesn't have to explore any other options if she already has one in mind. 

She can do what she wants.

And, for those who are worried, we're sure that she'll be just as hot when she's done as she is now.

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

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

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

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

Farrah Abraham, Weight Loss Lollipop

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

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

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

Uh-huh.

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

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

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

... Sure.

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

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

Farrah Abraham Tries to Be Sexy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jenelle Evans, Weight Loss Lollipop

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sure.

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

Charming.

Jenelle Evans in a Bikini and Shades

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

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

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

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

Ooooh, burn.

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

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

Mackenzie McKee, Weight Loss Lollipop

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amber Portwood Can't Chill

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

"Amber spent almost her whole pregnant feeling sick."

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

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

That sounds like a truly miserable existence.

"She was sick day and night."

That is heartbreaking to hear.

"It was brutal."

Amber Portwood and Son

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

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

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

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

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

Leah and James

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amber Portwood with Andrew Glennon

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sweet Baby James!

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

And Amber seems so at peace, too.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amber Baltierra

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

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

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

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

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

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

She says that she is doing this for them.

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

Amber Baltierra Kids 01

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

"I’m gonna miss you these 90 days."

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

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

Her thoughts will always be with her children.

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

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

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

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

Amber Baltierra message

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

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

That is so sweet.

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

And she shares some words of inspiration with them:

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

Amber Baltierra Kids 02

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

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

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

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

We hope that this experience helps her.

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

Tyler Baltierra and Amber Baltierra

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

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

They say that she is no genuinely trying to change.

"Not to really get any help."

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

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

Amber Baltierra twitter profile pic

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teen Mom Stars: A Comprehensive Guide to ALL Their Kids

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Unconventional, but beautiful and loving. <3

1. Sophia (Farrah Abraham and Derek Underwood)

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

2. Leah (Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley)

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

3. Carly (Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra)

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

4. Nova (Catelynn and Tyler)

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

5. Bentley (Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards)

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

6. Jayde (Maci and Taylor McKinney)

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

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

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

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

Amber Portwood with Baby Bump

Amber Portwood spoke to HollywoodLife.

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

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

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

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

Amber says that, eventually, enough was enough.

"And you can’t keep doing that."

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

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

Amber Portwood and Son

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

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

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

"This is bigger than her."

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

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

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

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

That's fair.

Sweet Baby James!

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

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

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

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

"Again, everything’s up in the air."

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

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

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

But we do wonder if cameras are rolling.

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

She just gave birth!

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

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

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

Amber Portwood Flaunts Major Cleavage

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

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

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

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

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

Teen Mom 2 Recap: Not to Stir the Pot, But …

On the season premiere of Teen Mom 2, we saw a ton of oft-discussed storylines come to fruition on camera for the first time.

When Teen Mom 2 Season 9 Episode 19 got underway, fans finally got to experience some of the biggest drama in franchise history.

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know about Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin's history ... and how Briana DeJesus fits in.

Well, what we didn't see, even after watching this play out online for months at a time, was how the fit finally hit the shan.

So to speak.

When the episode began, Briana met co-star Leah Messer for the first time when going to the MTV VMAs together last fall.

Bri gushed about Javi, Kailyn's ex, claiming that the two were just friends but acting as if they were much more than that.

The real eyebrow-raiser came when Briana told Leah that he was bringing his son to visit her in Florida - and stay at the same hotel.

“I don’t think she’ll be happy,” Leah told Briana about Kailyn's obvious reaction to this. “She’s probably going to be mad at you.”

Feeling awkward about having this information dropped on her, Messer went and told Lowry, who took it about how you'd think.

“It seemed like they were trying to cover it up with something else,” Leah said, and Kailyn indeed felt blindsided by the news.

Javi downplayed it when asked about it, but was annoyed - as was Briana - upon learning that Messer ratted him out to Kail.

Javi, Briana and Kailyn Split Pic

Meanwhile, Jenelle Evans found herself wrapped up in a custody battle against the mother of her second baby daddy, Nathan Griffith.

Nathan's mom filed for motion for emergency custody of their son Kaiser, fearful of the possibly abusive conditions in Jenelle’s home.

“I’m sick of us trying to have our happy ending and everyone’s trying to f–k it up,” Jenelle, who is now married to Dave Eason, said.

Both Nathan and Jenelle's mom, Barbara Evans, agreed that Kaiser may be mistreated there and that David is responsible, however.

“He has tendencies to be a violent person,” Nathan said of David, who reportedly doesn't like Kaiser because he looks like Nate (really).

Nathan Griffith, David Eason Split

“He doesn’t touch the kids like that,” Jenelle said in his defense. “Everything’s completely fine here and everyone thinks it’s not.”

Meanwhile, back in Javi's world, he said he and Briana text every day and have “really good chemistry,” so who knows what'll happen!

Kailyn said she's watched Briana's behavior on the show and that she seems “messy" and that “Javi likes to s–t where he eats."

Whatever that means.

In South Dakota, Chelsea Houska changed Aubree's name to DeBoer, because that’s what Aubree wanted, to be named for Cole.

Adam Lind, Chelsea

Cole, of course, is Aubree's stepfather, not her biological dad. That would be Adam Lind, who said he would agree with this arrangement.

Only if he got child support reduced or eliminated completely, that is. Leave it to this guy to try to use this name change as an excuse.

Lind, of course, was later arrested for domestic assault and his ex-fiancee filed for a restraining order, accusing him of more abuse.

“His drug use is just out of control,” Chelsea said.

“He’s, like, getting worse."

That's truly amazing.

Amber Portwood: I’m in the Early Stages of Labor! I’m Ready!!

Did you get a lot of well-deserved rest this weekend? Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood did not.

It looks like Amber's baby shower a few weeks ago was just in time.

She's revealed on Twitter that she is dilated. How long until she gives birth?

Amber Portwood with Baby Bump

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Amber Portwood tweeted:

"Another nocturnal night with my uncomfortable preggy belly but it's all worth it!"

We know that it's tempting to laugh at a phrase like nocturnal night, but she just means that she can't sleep. She's super pregnant, you guys.

This is when she shares the big news.

"I'm 3 cm dilated and home waiting for labor!"

Wow!

Amber Portwood early labor tweet

That's a huge deal! She then shares a rhetorical question with her followers.

"Wonder if I'll make it to my due date?"

Amber is due on May 13, which is next Sunday and just so happens to be Mother's Day.

Amber herself was born on Mother's Day in 1990.

The reality star hopes to remain in the thoughts of her fans and followers.

"Wish me luck loves! Goodnight."

She follows that with a "hugging face" emoji.

Amber Portwood, Topless and in Color

Now, hold your horses and don't cut that Congratulations Amber cake yet, folks.

We know that "she's dilated!" sounds exciting, but this is just one early sign of labor.

As she says, she is waiting to actually go into labor.

This is just an early labor sign, like a tremor before an earthquake. Or the water receding before a tsunami. Or hairs standing up on your arm before a lightning strike.

(Childbirth is amazing but it's also terrifying)

Amber Portwood Flaunts Major Cleavage

Amber's May 13 due date is looming, but she still might not make it to that day.

Her due date is significant because, as Amber reminds fans, it is right before her birthday on the 14.

Obviously, it's neat when you share a birthday with someone.

But for practical reasons, nobody wants to share a birthday with their parent.

You're supposed to get to pick where you go out for dinner on your birthday (bare minimum), and nobody wants to have to share that honor with someone else.

And then there are the logistics of Amber hosting her child's birthday party on the day of her own party. it's no fun.

Even one day of separation would make that easier. Better if it's several days.

Amber Portwood with Andrew Glennon

Since this tweet, Amber has continued to be moderately active on social media.

She threw a little shade over some recent Kailyn Lowry drama, she complimented a lot of photos of her fans as new mothers holding their babies, and she reminded people about multiple food recalls.

(Seriously, if you think that there's even a realistic chance that any food in your fridge might contain e. coli, please dump it. That deadly bacteria is no joke)

Hopefully, she (or someone acting on her behalf) will tweet when her water breaks and at other stages of labor and delivery.

In the mean time, her fans and followers and of course her family and loved ones continue to wait with anticipation for her to give birth to her child with Andrew Glennon.

We hope that Amber finds a way to get comfortable and sleep a little before she gives birth. She'll need the rest.

Amber Portwood: See Her Precious Baby Shower!

As Teen Mom OG fans are well aware, Amber Portwood's baby is due in less than a month -- May 13th.

Naturally, she and her family are preparing for the event -- and that includes throwing a baby shower.

As you'll see in the photos below, even her daughter Leah was there. This will be a big, exciting change for her, too.

Amber Portwood Baby Shower

Amber Portwood is pregnant with Andrew Glennon's baby.

It's an exciting time -- even if a lot of fans still harbor some misgivings about her new baby daddy and his worrisome personal history.

Baby showers are a time-honored tradition in which friends and family gather to celebrate someone's upcoming childbirth and motherhood.

While it's true that it's often a bigger deal for first-time mothers, baby showers are a wonderful time to celebrate any expected childbirth.

And celebrating is exactly what Amber and her family are doing.

In that first photo, you can see Amber attempting to quickly change the diaper of that baby doll. While blind-folded.

Leah Leann Shirley Prepares for Big Sisterhood

Additionally, fans can see Amber's daughter, Leah Shirley, holding the doll.

Leah is her daughter with Gary Shirley, and she's more than old enough to be excited about becoming an older sister.

We know that Amber is expecting a boy, and Amber revealed that his name will be James Andrew Glennon.

Leah is about to embark upon the experience of having a brand new baby brother.

This baby shower might be a second run for Amber, but for Leah, it's a brand new experience.

It was sweet of Amber, and her mother Tonya, to share some glimpses of this happy occasion on social media.

Amber Portwood, Baby Shower

Though Amber continues to battle a number of personal demons, including struggles with substance abuse and of course the explosive anger with which fans are familiar, she's in a better place now than she was when she first became a mother.

In fact, that's usually the case for people who become pregnant as teens.

These days, though Amber struggles with mental health issues during her pregnancy, she's a reality star and a minor celebrity.

Her estimated net worth is around half a million.

Considering that Andrew Glennon, her new baby daddy, is reportedly from a well-off family of big-name filmmakers, we hope that Amber's son will have the kind of stability and security that he deserves.

Andrew Glennon and Leah Shirley

We do need to talk about Andrew Glennon, however.

As we have mentioned, he has a somewhat troubled history -- though, especially in the world of the Teen Mom franchise, there are much more alarming men out there.

A couple of Andrew's exes have complained and even filed restraining orders to keep him from allegedly harassing them after their breakups.

We hope that he is no longer prone to those sorts of alleged behaviors.

Amber seems to indicate that he has bonded well with Leah.

We certainly hope that Andrew will make a wonderful presence in the lives of Amber, Leah, and James.

(He has to be better than Matt Baier, right?)

Amber Portwood Flaunts Major Cleavage

Speaking of Amber's baby daddies, Gary Shirley sent over his own gifts for her shower.

So it appears that things are going a bit better between them than they used to.

It is also possible that Gary just wanted to do the right thing, even if he and Amber are still on the outs.

Either way, it was a great gesture. Baby showers are not the place to hold grudges.

Even if you've been feuding like crazy.

Farrah Abraham: Actually I AM Coming Back to Teen Mom!

Just days after claiming that Teen Mom OG ratings are down because she was fired, Farrah is taking pity on the show that she believes is on its last leg -- by speaking to Dr. Drew for the reunion special.

Now, she's taken to Instagram to explain why she's appearing, however, indirectly, on the show that she is suing for millions of dollars for wrongful termination.

There's a lot of word salad. This is Farrah we're talking about.

Farrah Abraham, Bending Back

"On last HOORAH with FARRAH @teenmom @mtv April 23rd."

It's worth noting that most people probably don't pronounce hoorah in a way that rhymes with Farrah, but some do. Either way, good effort.

"It's been a great 10 year era of Farrah for Teen Mom I always make the most out of life."

Note that she's not saying that it's been a great decade for her. She's saying that the era of her has been great for the show.

Farrah's assessments are always ... breathtaking.

"And I'm so blessed I got to be that fighter, the strong women, the honest single parent, showing motherhood can be glamorous, Joy, happiness, memories & no regrets."

Word Salad

"Life is a challenge but to be an advocate for a young innocent child,lead, guide, love, succeed, and give it your all is amazing, a once in a life time surprise."

That kind of depends upon how many children you have.

She then goes on to extol her own accomplishments:

"I'm blessed I graduated high school early, graduated college with 2 degrees, started 3 companies, have an international brand from all the support. ..."

Farrah's list of claims to fame continues:

"... Became a new York times best selling author, became [an] actress, became the best Farrah I can be, & travel the globe with my daughter."

Farrah and Sophia Abraham Selfie

Farrah reminds her fans and followers that, despite all of her achievements, she comes from humble origins.

"I started all of this from Council Bluffs Iowa."

She may be forgetting that humble origins are kind of assumed ... because she's famous for becoming a mother as a teenager.

"I hope my start into my adult self from teenager to adulthood shows you as it showed me I can achieve for more [than] I could ever imagine."

That is one hell of a sentence. It belongs in a gallery somewhere.

Farrah Abraham Models Lingerie With a Horse

"God is amazing and we have not one or no thing can get in the way of our life destiny to be great!"

Another gold-star Farrah sentence.

"Life is beautiful & I'm thankful I was the (1) out of 10 teen moms statistically to over come the challenges and struggles of teen parenthood."

That is ... not a very kind thing to say about her costars.

But it does fit with her self-image, which seems to always drive her to need to see herself as the most successful at anything that she attempts.

Farrah Abraham Lounges in a White Bikini

"I want to add the struggles of being a teen parent were only half the struggles I felt."

She then lists the other challenges that she faced.

"But the other struggles from production, being famous, being a leader, political immature s--t, the control & power trips from society really added more."

Honestly, she might deserve some recognition for not once saying "hate crimes" during this entire rant.

"[And] I have to say I rose about all the evil and all the hate by focusing on myself, loving, growing and developing what's next to better our world for future generations."

Yes, Farrah is shaping the youth of tomorrow. Or something.

"I will always improve social causes and improve our world!"

Farrah Abraham Poses in Intimate Wear

This was all prompted by The Ashley's report that Farrah would sit down with Dr. Drew to talk about ... well, her departure from the series that made her rich and famous. 

Farrah doesn't really explain why she's agreed to sit down for a segment that will air during the reunion special, but one wonders if she had intended to explain herself when she started.

As you can see from her post and from other things that she has written and said, sometimes Farrah's thoughts take interesting twists and turns.

(That can happen to anyone, but Farrah in particular seems to generate word salad that has little rhyme or reason)

Perhaps she will speak a little more clearly when the world sees her chat with Dr. Drew.

Catelynn Lowell Claps Back at Rehab-Shamers: You’re Ignorant!!

In the wake of being slammed for going back to rehab, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell is clapping back at her haters.

She's being mom-shamed, wife-shamed, and plain ol' shamed for "abandoning" her family. And she's clapping back.

Take a look at her strong words -- and at the hate to which she was responding.

Tyler and Catelynn Post-Therapy

Following the episode in which she explained the reason she was returning to rehab, Catelynn Lowell took to Twitter to put the haters on blast.

"All you ignorant people are the reason why mental health still has this huge stigma around it!"

The stigma surrounding mental health is devastating, though things are getting better as more and more people use social media to share what was once a private struggle.

She shares some hashtags that encourage people to learn more about mental health.

"#GetEducated #KeepTalkingMH"

She wishes that people wouldn't condemn her for going to rehab when they clearly do not know what they're talking about.

"You have NO clue unless you have been through it yourself."

In many ways, Catelynn feels exhasperated.

"Some of you people disgust me."

Catelynn Lowell Rehab Tweet 1

She continues to correct the people who think that she was abandoning her family by going to rehab.

"I wasn't 'running away' from my problems I was FIXING them!"

Yep. Seeking medical help when you need it is the right thing to do.

"Working HARD & getting on the right medication."

Sometimes, that requires inpatient treatment.

"I wouldn't wish this crap on my worst enemy!"

Mental illness is a terrible burden. The only good thing about it is that more people are speaking openly about their struggles.

"But I guess I'll have haters no matter what! Just glad I got myself better and if ppl r mad then be mad I guess #KeepTalkingMH"

Having haters -- and ideally learning to accept them -- goes with the territory of being a reality star, unfortunately.

Catelynn Lowell Rehab Tweet 2

Catelynn retweeted a few supportive tweets, including one that reads:

"I’ve done outpatient & inpatient treatment and sometimes outpatient just isn’t enough at that certain time! That’s nothing to be ashamed of. dont listen to the hate! I’ll never understand how you guys deal with so much bullshit from random people! You’re so strong!"

She also clapped back at a hater, who wrote:

"Us people? Smh"

Catelynn's own tweet responded:

"Yes the ones that are uneducated on mental illness. That's what ignorance is. People with uneducated opinions."

She's not wrong.

Lowell

If you want to see what sorts of hate she's fighting back again, take a look at this small sampling of social media vitriol that fills her mentions:

"Lots of wives and mothers have to do this while still raising a family. Not everyone has the luxury of dumping their family and hopping on a plane to a rehab center to 'get their meds right'. They do that between raising a family and working a full time job."

Ugh.

"If she got a job, joined a gym & ate the right food that be half the battle for her! She’s too much time to sit around eating smoking and thinking. Get a life and live it! Get healthy for one that’s a start."

Gross.

"You're not the only parent struggling with mental health issues. I am a single parent with mental health issues BUT, I still have to provide for my family and be there when my children need me. You are putting Nova in the same position your parents put you in, think about that."

Yikes.

"Wasn't she instructed to stay away from social media? She's a non-compliant patient which makes one wonder in what other areas of her life is she not following the process? Does she even *want* to get better?"

Hush.

"You complain too much!!! Get over it. People have been through worst s--t then you and youre dragging s--t out thats 10+ yrs old. Woman up. Can't even cook for your man"

Catelynn Lowell, Tyler Baltierra on Instagram

These haters may be eager to slam Catelynn for making what was clearly a responsible choice for herself and for her loved ones.

But Tyler Baltierra is standing by his wife.

In response to her on-camera confession that she needed to return to rehab in order to truly recover, he said:

"I’m not ever leaving, I’m not going anywhere. Don’t think like that."

He reiterated that message on social media, writing:

"I love you more Babe! True love is boundless, limitless, & unconditional!"

Farrah Abraham: Teen Mom Ratings Are Down Because I Got Fired!

Plenty of fans tuned in to watch Farrah Abraham get fired.

But ratings seemed to decline a bit following that episode.

Farrah says that Teen Mom OG has now run its course -- and people shoudl be more interested in the quality television programs that she's going to come out with.

Farrah Abraham Fired

We'll go into detail on Teen Mom ratings -- with specific numbers and episodes -- in a moment.

In an interview with RadarOnlineFarrah Abraham says that the falling Teen Mom ratings are to be expected. 

"It's no surprise that the Teen Mom ratings went down since I've left."

But she follows that with a message of ... compassion, we think.

"I know that other families rely on this show for income and I hope it continues."

F. Abraham

That's charitable of her, though she concludes that thought by saying:

"Even if it's now run its course."

Funny how she didn't seem to think that the series was pointless when they were still paying her.

"MTV has really ruined what could be an amazing show."

MTV created the show, but she explains how she believes that they "ruined" it.

"By bullying, ruining natural story lines, shaming, and interfering in the real lives of these parents and children."

Honestly? We're kind of impressed that she managed to avoid accusing anyone of "hate crimes." That's character development.

Farrah Abraham Models Lingerie With a Horse

"I'm happy I separated myself."

Wow, that sounds like a very creative way of saying "got fired."

Farrah then talks about her hopes and dreams.

"I hope to produce and develop award-winning shows as my 10 years of experience has me confident of what our future needs."

She doesn't just mean her livestreamed sex shows, we think.

Brace yourselves for this next line:

"I am quality, authentic, real."

Wild.

She says that her future in television will reflect those qualities.

"And I will only create shows, films, and digital content that delivers that."

Word Salad

TV By The Numbers has the ratings for Teen Mom OG, so these are the stats to which Farrah is referring.

The episode that featured Farrah's long-awaited firing took place on March 12, and brought in 1,135,000 viewers.

In contrast, for the next episode, which did not feature Farrah, viewership dropped to 1,097,000 on March 19.

On March 26, 1,044,000 fans tuned in. On April 2, numbers were way down, with only 992,000 watching.

The season finale on April 9 did see those numbers rise again, with 1,250,000 viewers, finally surpassing the ratings of Farrah's last day.

But that was a season finale.

Your Girl Farrah

Honestly? That dip in ratings looks significant, but it doesn't really spell out the "decline" that Farrah seems to see.

It looks more like interest spiked, just like how more people start watching a soap opera when the show teases that a major character is about to die.

Just like how people will slow down on the road to see a trainwreck, they tuned in to watch Farrah get confronted about how she treats the show's producers.

That doesn't mean that her firing spells doom for the series, folks.

In other news, our advise for anyone seeking to find a romantic partner is this: find someone who describes you like Farrah Abraham describes herself.

David Eason Balloon-Stabbing Incident to Air on Teen Mom 2!

We've all heard of the terrifying incident in which David Eason pulled a knife and began stabbing balloons at the Teen Mom 2 Reunion.

Since then, Jenelle has tried to make excuses for his alarming behavior, like she always does.

Well, Teen Mom 2 viewers will finally get to see the footage for themselves. And Jenelle is going to be pissed.

David Eason and Jenelle Evans, NOT Touching Her "Baby Bump"

The good folks over at The Ashley have a source that reveals that Teen Mom 2 will show David Eason's balloon incident.

"[The show’s producers] have been planning to show David’s rampage since it happened."

Naturally. Reality shows are fueled by drama and explosive moments.

"Normally, it would be included in the regular Reunion special."

This was a special case, however.

"But the drama [from the Reunion taping] was just so good that they basically said, ‘We’re saving this for the show!'"

Jenelle Eason, David Eason Photo

The source even dishes on exactly what viewers can look forward to seeing.

"Viewers will get to see him get tangled in the balloons and then the cameras kind of scramble to zoom in on where the commotion is coming from."

This, as those familiar with reports of the incident know, is where David's knife comes into play.

"And then they show David stabbing the balloons."

As fans can imagine, the sight and sound of a large man angrily stabbing a bunch of balloons did not go unnoticed by the other stars.

So the footage will reportedly also show them freaking out.

"It shows just how weird that whole situation actually was."

We can also expect to see Jenelle, as usual, making excuses for her husband's deeply alarming behavior to her costars.

Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer

A while back, Leah Messer appeared on Kailyn Lowry's podcast to talk about the infamous Balloon Massacre.

And they talked about more than just what happened after he pulled out a knife.

"I don’t even remember if [David was mad] because they were not serving any more alcohol."

Fans may remember that David Eason griped about there not being any beer.

"But we were there for work!"

If you're not sure how much is appropriate to drink at a work function, just ask someone. Or don't drink at all!

"I mean, you can have a few drinks socially but, it’s not that appropriate."

Kail and Leah then agree that they would not allow their children near David Eason. Which shouldn't be too difficult, since Eason has been fired.

David Eason Bartending

The Ashley's source goes on to to describe what else we can look forward to seeing.

"They show security searching him the next day at the studio because of the knife incident the night before."

Added security makes sense when you're dealing with someone who clearly loves weapons.

The source says that this should solidify the incident in the minds of fans and viewers.

"It really happened, and everyone saw it so there’s no denying it happened."

And the source points out that the footage is really fair game.

"If someone does something on-set, in front of cameras, they can’t really get upset if it ends up on the show."

That makes sense. That's how reality television works.

David Eason on Insta

The source also reveals that apparently producers have not tipped off Jenelle that the footage will air.

And it sounds like they don't plan on pulling the footage, even if Jenelle pitches a fit. Again.

Jenelle always seems eager to bend over backwards to explain away David's abhorrent behavior and to defend him, even though he appears to be the worst man she's ever been with.

(Which is almost impressive, considering his competition for that title)

After fans and viewers and Jenelle herself all see what the camera will reveal about David Eason, will it become harder for her to lie to fans -- and herself -- about the man she's married?

Or will MTV change its mind before the episode airs, and bury the footage?
