'Teen Dads' Special Recap: Corey Simms Admits He Married Leah Too Soon & Ryan Edwards Talks About Getting Back With Maci!

Mon, September 19, 2011 2:21pm EST by 18 Comments

‘Teen Mom’ stars Gary, Ryan, Tyler, Corey, Adam and Jo sat down with Dr. Drew for a men-only tell-all about their baby mamas, girlfriends and lives as teen dads!

If you weren’t glued to the Primetime Emmy Awards last night, Sept. 18, then you were probably watching Teen Mom: The Dad’s Special with Dr.Drew where our favorite and most-hated Teen Mom dads met up with Dr. Drew Pinsky to discuss their side of the story. Did YOU watch?

Let me set it up: Three men from Teen Mom Amber Portwood‘s ex Gary Shirley, Maci Bookout‘s baby daddy Ryan Edwards and Catelynn Lowell‘s boyfriend Tyler Baltierra – and three from Teen Mom 2 Leah Messer‘s ex-husband Corey Simms, Chelsea Houska‘s back-stabbing baby daddy Adam Lind and Kailyn Lowry‘s ex Jo Rivera — spilled the beans on the Teen Moms we love! From baby battles to births and back, these dads weren’t afraid to let their true feelings out.

First, Dr. Drew invites Gary and Adam to the stage and discusses everything from Amber beating up Gary to Adam cheating on Chelsea. Gary admits that he isn’t with Amber, but that he will always care about her because she is the mother of his daughter Leah, who obviously means the world to him. Adam says that he has seen his daughter Aubree a couple of times, but is going to court so that he can get more custody rights. In a shocking twist, he even apologizes to Chelsea for all the sadness he’s caused her, but still insists the cheating went both ways.

Next to the hot seat comes Tyler and Corey, who were two of the guys to actually propose to — and walk down the aisle with — their girlfriends. Of course, Corey and Leah got married, but sadly, ended up getting a divorce earlier this year. Tyler and Catelynn are still engaged and although Tyler says they’re not getting married any time soon, Catelynn is and always will be the one for him.

Both of the guys talk about how they wish they were safer and used better protection and hope other teens will make better choices. Corey admits that he’s lonely and says that his situation is “the worst thing ever.” Ouch. He loves his twins, Aleeah and Aliannah, but it’s a lot of work taking care of one, let alone two, babies. Tyler on the other hand stands by his decision to give daughter Carly up for adoption, saying that his own dad Butch, who is in and out of jail, taught him everything NOT to do as a father and Tyler realizes he wasn’t ready to be a parent.

Next up, bad boys Ryan and Jo step up to the plate and chat with Dr. Drew about their situations, which of course, are two of the most dramatic story lines in Teen Mom history. Ryan, who is Maci’s ex and Bentley‘s dad, says that he would only get back together with Maci if another life-changing experience were to occur, while Jo says he can totally see him and Kailyn rekindling their romance in the future, maybe for son Isaac‘s sake. (Um, is he kidding?)

Both guys admit they’re supportive of their exes’ new men — Maci is with Kyle King and Kailyn was with Jordan Wenner when the special was filmed — and have great custody agreements that work well for them.

When all six guys return to the stage for the final talk, they get to the deep stuff. Corey says he couldn’t care less about what people have to say about him, while Ryan is sick of being called a “douche bag,” even by his mom! He also adds that he’s not sure he ever wants another child, meanwhile Adam just wants to have sex — so let’s hope he wears a condom next time.

Gary, Ryan, Adam and Jo all admit that they wish they hadn’t treated the girls the way they did. And Corey says he jumped into marriage way too fast with Leah and wishes he could go back and do things differently.

Wow, what an intense show! Did you watch? What did you think?

Tyler has his priorities straight for someone his age. Sure he’s cute…..so is Ryan…..and so is Corey…..and so is Adam. Does that make any of them “gay”, of course not. Tyler, Ryan, Corey and Gary are the most responsible dad. Adam, a work in progress. It is sad in this day of dangerous STDs that these young men and women are having unprotected sex. They are probably unaware, but, the HIV virus infected heterosexual couples in Africa long before it struck the gay community. Translation: AIDS is a multi-opportunity disease that could give a good damn who it kills. Keep it up young men and women. Youth makes you feel a sense of invincibility. It is a grand illusion. Chelsea needs to stop riding on her dad’s generosity. Janelle is a total disaster in life before her quarter of a century milestone. Her mother tolerates a lot from her. Of all the couples, I would like to see them all make it so that their children grow up in a home with both parents. That seems unlikely. I hope Adam is indeed turning a corner. How about an education Adam? Ryan? I left home for college at 17. Here are a bunch of people looking to be treated like an adult when convenient. But all too happy to run back to the cradle, when it is not. All but Tyler, Gary and Corey. I applaud those mothers who are trying. But please use protection from here on out. No more children, that you seem ill-prepared to take care of.

back to the serious issues of the topic… Gary is a button-pusher. He knows exactly how to work up Amber. And when Amber threatens to leave him, he threatens her to take away her child over the abuse issues.
Does anyone ever see this? Gary KNOWS Leah hates him. Gary still wants to be with Amber and Gary uses that baby to be with Amber. And Gary got his way… now he has the baby and when Amber gets out of jail, Gary will control Amber’s every single move. If she doesn’t stay with Gary, he’ll push her buttons, cause another aggressive fight, and get Amber arrested so he can say, “I told you so.”
Girls, wise up! If a ma
n purposely upsets you in order to control you, get out!!
As for Amber, I think she is bipolar and refuses to take her meds because they made her gain all the weight back. Never deal with a bipolar who is off their meds! Her rage and anger issues are out of control and Gary and Leah feel her wrath. But that was different when Amber lost the weight and lived on her own.. she seemed really happy and had it together. UNTIL Gary got jealous and pushed her buttons again. Controlling men are jealous and dangerous.

The best part was when Dr Drew called out Gary for doing this!!! Gary should have a restraining order put on him. He really needs to stay away from Amber completely. I hope Amber arranges this when she gets out of prison.

I meant to write: Gary knows AMBER hates him [not Leah].

Amber should have dumped Gary a long time ago. After she lost all that weight and seemed happy, she could have moved on with school and maybe a career. Amber might have even met a decent secure man.

Amber you only have one shot to clean up your act when you get out of jail. TAKE YOUR BIPOLAR MEDS AND GO TO COLLEGE!

Really? Tyler being gay? That’s what this post has come to? Come on…Tyler is one of the best dads on this show. And he’s also one of the most loving boyfriends as well. So, since no one can find a true fault, we need to resort to saying he’s gay? Give me a break and grow up.

They all looked like they hated being there and Gary does need to lose weight. Also is it me or does Tyler seem gay? Coming from a gay man I can totally feel a gay vibe.

I too have been wondering about Tyler. Did anyone else notice how emotional he got when he said girls are “evil and manipulative”. He really ranted about how girls know how to push buttons. So he’s talking about Catelynn. She is very manipulative about her “man” and very insecure. But they enable each other. He’s as dependent on her as she is on him. They aren’t who they pretend to be. Both are heavy smokers, heavily tatooed, drinkers and who knows what else. But they deserve each other. SAD

he could just be an effeminate guy because he was raised by his mom. Shrugs, everyone can’t be hyper masculine.

I honestly dont understand the title of this article…the author never spells out exactly how Ryan (on the show) “dissed” Maci.

Coming from a bisexual woman who has been with a gay man, and has a gay parent…I’m not feeling the gay vibe from Tyler…just curious what makes you think that though?(:

that is the only thing you picked up from the show? that Tyler seemed gay to you? Maybe YOU are attracted to him and YOU’RE in the closet?

Tyler is the most mature and decent man on the show!

Gary is so insecure and fat and LAZY. God is he disgusting in every way, shape and form. I wish he’d get his act together.

Gary really needs to go on a DIET. He is ONE BIG DUDE and not in a good way. Maybe he can go on Biggest Loser. He speaks like he has golf balls in his mouth. Come to think of it they all do aside from Tyler. He is the most lovely man. He speaks so eloquently. He knows exactly what he wants. And he was NOT selfish in keeping Carly. They gave that little girl the best like they knew how. He and Catelyn are more mature then Gary and Amber and Gary is in his mid 20’s. Ryan needs an attitude adjustment. He thinks he can get by on his looks. His parents are raising Bentley when he is at their house. He quits job cuz ” HE FEELS LIKE IT ” how sad.

so, didn’t maci dump her classes because she ‘felt like it’? Didn’t Kyle, her live in boyfriend, quit his job as well?

Seriously, I don’t even understand why Ryan is made to be the bad guy in all these scenarios. I know he WAS completely irresponsible and mean at first, but he’s stepped up to the plate and does everything he’s supposed to now. Maci is the one whose living with some guy, and her son in an apartment. I may be old fashioned, but I don’t like the idea of live in boyfriends with your child, unless you are in a permanent, marriage type relationship.

Also, Maci took that child away to go live with Kyle, 2 hours away, and never even told Ryan until the day before!
