And that’s a series wrap for Farrah Abraham.
On Monday evening, the second part of the Teen Mom OG reunion aired — and let’s just say there was plenty of drama. Not only did Dr. Drew have one last sit down with Miz Abraham, but the drama involving Maci Bookout and baby daddy Ryan Edwards was addressed head on.
Of course, those aren’t the only memorable moments from the reunion episode, as Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell also gave important updates regarding their respective lives. For all of this and more, be sure to proceed to the recap (below)…
As was previously teased, in order to conclude her time on the MTV hit, Farrah sat down with Dr. Drew separately for one last interview. While the mother of one has settled her lawsuit against MTV parent company Viacom and TMOG producer Morgan J. Freeman, Abraham is clearly still bitter about the way she was portrayed on the show.
Through sarcastic claps, Farrah noted:
“Let me applaud for everyone that has to make me into a disgusting person.”
The reality TV vet went on to accuse Freeman and fellow producer Kirsten Malone of contriving their “blow up” with her. She also suggested that the crew tried to “sabotage” and “squish” her:
“It’s been pretty traumatic over the years… I’m happy that I didn’t let people break me to my core, which I felt like this production was doing.”
In case you forgot, Farrah accused production of slut shaming her after she was informed that her journey would no longer be documented on TMOG if she continued to pursue an adult entertainment career. Speaking of her XXX livelihood, Dr. Drew made sure to ask if Farrah’s daughter Sophia was aware of how she made money.
And it seems that the 26-year-old is proud of her career path, as she retorted:
“Does she know what her mother does? Yeah, there’s nothing to hide, Dr. Drew. And if you wish to insinuate any other kind of negativity, please just respect that.”
Oh snap! Although Farrah isn’t embarrassed by her adult entertainment path, her mother Debra Danielsen does NOT approve of “some of the choices she’s made.” After giving an update on their contentious relationship, Debra added:
“I fear for her because of some of the projects she’s been doing. I just don’t like some of the people she’s become acquainted with and I don’t like some of the choices she’s made.”
If only Farrah was still on TMOG, we’d get to see how this whole thing plays out. *SIGH*
But going back to the rest of the cast, the theme of Monday’s episode should’ve been family feud as Maci found herself at odds with those close to her as well. Specifically, former flame Ryan refused to go out on stage with Bookout as she is a “trigger” for Edwards’ insobriety.
However, this may be a crock of shit, as Ryan completely avoided talking about how he’s coping with his treatment. As Dr. Drew pressured Ryan into opening up about how he’s staying sober, wife Mackenzie Standifer called out the addiction specialist for taking Maci’s side.
“I don’t think you could vouch for anything Ryan does.”
Ryan, who was pretty mute through most of the sit down, eventually defended himself:
“I just wanted things to stay the same today so I can leave here and not have a knock-down drag-out fight with Maci. So I can go home and next weekend I can still get my son.”
Fair, fair. Still, Ryan’s sentiments left Maci totally unimpressed, as she hit back with:
“I don’t think he wants to be put in a situation where he has to answer for himself. I think a lot of people around him answer questions for him.”
Huh. She’s not wrong, y’all!!!
Ryan wasn’t the only Teen Mom parent who was forced to defend themselves, as Amber broke down in tears over the comments ex Gary Shirley made about her parenting choices. Portwood, who appeared on the reunion via video chat, expressed that she was unfairly judged as she was struggling with depression following her split with ex-fianc├â┬⌐ Matt Baier.
In regards to the claims that Amber’s been absent from Leah’s life, the pregnant TV personality noted:
“I’m really hurt because the last thing I want is├óΓé¼┬ª like├óΓé¼┬ª the last thing I want is for people to look at me like that person because it’s not me… It’s to the point where feel horrible about being depressed and stuff. I don’t know what anybody wants me to do anymore. I’m trying as hard as I can and as long as Leah knows that I love her with all my heart…
Even if I’m not a perfect mom ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ just so she knows I am here for her, that’s all that matters to me. I can’t keep defending myself as a mom, anymore. I don’t know what to do.”
Poor thing. In an attempt to calm Amber, Gary promised that their issues are in the past and vowed to “never” keep Leah from her. We’re glad they were able to talk through this tense stuff!!
Things got particularly real when Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra discussed the former’s struggles with suicidal thoughts. Understandably, Tyler felt “helpless” during his wife’s struggles, but Lowell reassured her husband that her issues didn’t stem from their relationship.
Amid tears, Catelynn admitted:
“I could physically see myself driving into an electrical pole off the road and praying it would kill me. But I wouldn’t do it because I had my kid in the backseat.”
The ladies of TMOG have certainly been through a lot. Hopefully things are better for them next season!
