‘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?
