Farrah is ready to settle down, but her new boyfriend isn’t too keen on all the commitment and marriage talk. Plus, Catelynn and fiance Tyler figure out their future careers, and Amber tries to find a safe and suitable home.

Farrah Abraham wants commitment and an engagement, but her boyfriend of only one and half months, Daniel Alvarez, isn’t comfortable with making such a leap this early in their relationship. Will Farrah’s determination to find forever love spell doom for the young couple?

After a turbulent patch last week, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra brought the focus back to them and how they need to succeed in their future careers. Amber Portwood continued to struggle with Gary Shirley about seeing their little girl Leah, while Maci Bookout nearly starts a Twitter war with baby-daddy Ryan Edwards‘ girlfriend Dalis.

Farrah

Last week, Farrah introduced Daniel to her baby girl Sophia and mother Debra Danielson. Now it was time for Daniel to return the favor. Sophia stayed home with grandma Debra, while Farrah flew to Daniel’s hometown of Austin, Texas to meet his family and friends.

Farrah immediately started dropping hints of wanting more from their relationship during their first night in town at dinner. Joking that she may throw up on him, she warned him he better get used to it if he ever wanted to be a father.

While meeting Daniel’s father, Marci, Farrah was SHOCKED that Daniel’s stepmother never had children by her age (Awkward pause around the table). On the other hand, Daniel’s father explained he had three children by the time he was 23. Farrah then shared she wanted the same thing, making Daniel practically choke on his meal.

Farrah stepped up her matrimony game while shopping for cute cowboy boots for Sophia. Her next hint came not so subtly, confessing she wanted her future fiance to buy her an engagement ring from a thrift shop. Each time, Daniel tried to laugh it off or stayed silent.

But there was no escape for Daniel, when Farrah got him out in a paddle boat in the middle of the water. No where to run, Daniel had to face facts that Farrah wanted to be in a committed relationship within a couple months. She even gave him the ultimatum that if he didn’t want that same thing, he could get out now.

Finally at the end of their trip, Farrah and Daniel were barely talking and Farrah told her mom Daniel was “an idiot.” Farrah left the hotel and flew home without speaking a word to Daniel. He stays behind and tell his buddy, that he just can’t say he’s going to marry Farrah right now.

Catelynn

Catelynn and Tyler both know what they want to do with their lives, but aren’t quite sure whether they’re enrolled in the right degree program to get them there. Knowing she wants to work as an adoption counselor, Catelynn calls up Dawn who helped with her own adoption process for some counseling on what track she should take. Dawn advises her to go for a social worker’s degree, and this information makes Catelynn nervous since she was enrolling in the human services program.

An email from Brandon and Teresa, the couple’s adoptive parents of daughter Carly prompts Catelynn and Tyler to really start thinking hard about their academic plans when Theresa asks when they’re starting school. Catelynn and Tyler both want to show Carly’s adoptive parents that their really making an effort to find a good job and successful career.

Catelynn and Tyler take the first step going to meet with prospective adoption parents and speaking with Dawn about internship opportunities. Both want to make sure they get the right degree to lead them down the right path.

Tyler’s mother fears Tyler won’t return to school after taking some time off, so she sets up a meeting with a few advisers who have backgrounds in the fields of social services that Tyler and Catelynn want to pursue. The couple feels much better when they learn a human services degree will work to lead them to the jobs they both want.

Good to see the couple thinking seriously about their future, and taking the time to really figure out what they need to do to accomplish their goals.

Amber

Still struggling with not being able to have Leah stay over at her home due to recent vandalism on the property, Amber sets out to find a new home that will be safe and secure for her daughter.

Leah, missing her mommy, calls her up on daddy Gary’s phone and Amber decides she wants to see her daughter that day. Gary puts the kabosh on that idea, telling Amber he needs to “put stuff together” and she can’t see Leah today. A slip of Leah’s little hand on the phone, and she accidentally hangs up on mommy.

The next day Gary calls Amber to ask if she wants to see Leah that day, but now Amber’s too busy looking for a new place to live. Like most conversation between these two, Gary starts yelling and Amber yells back saying she wanted to see Leah yesterday, but he wouldn’t let her. He hangs up on her, and Amber gets in her car to search for a new home.

First she heads to her friend’s home to vent about her recent “discussion” with Gary. She continues her Gary complaints while the two go look at a house for rent. “I was suppose to see her today,” Amber laments on the house tour. She does love the house, feels safe there and thinks Leah will love it too.

Maci

Maci learns first-hand that no secrets exist in the Twitter-verse. Her tweet, saying it would have been best for son Bentley if her and Ryan had stayed together, ruffles the feathers of Ryan’s new girlfriend Dalis. And when Dalis complains to Ryan, Ryan grows angry with Maci. “The stuff you post is stupid,” he texts her and then threatens to take her to court.

The fight continues in person when Ryan comes to pick up Bentley for his night. Maci tells him to not complain about Dalis’ disagreements, especially if he doesn’t entirely know the whole situation. They both somewhat agree that they need to remain civil for the sake of their son.

Ryan gets the same message at home from his parents. They try to get him to see things from Maci’s side, as she may not be ready for Ryan to be dating someone new. Ryan listens, but immediately shuts down his mother’s idea of having a big birthday party for Bentley with him and Maci together.

It seems Ryan has a lot to think about going forward, and how he wants to proceed in his dealings with his son’s mother.

She needs to grow up before she starts trying to get married. That episode was SOOOO painful to watch!!! I felt worst for Daniel’s stepmother. Farrah is so incredibly RUDE, her family never taught her any manners!!

Its mot that daniel looks like he wont marry someone with a kid its that this hoe didnt even no him and was talk about marriage and being clingy and wanted to rush into a relationship without even enjoying it first. She scared him off. So advice change that stank attitude take care of ur daughter stop taking time writing books and spend that time with ur daughter. Ur juss setting up sophia for failure. So like i said attention whore stop telling ppl bout ya life and how ur suicidal and a druggy. Because u did it for attention.

I don’t know if it was the “editing” or not but I couldn’t believe that Farrah would say what she did to Daniel’s stepmother. Laughing at her wanting kids and being too old and saying she was gonna be a lone bird. Most insensitive thing ever to say to anyone who wishes they had kids and don’t. If she doesn’t get help, she’s gonna end up alone and miserable and screw up her child’s life like her Mom did hers.

Farrah,
Your music SUCKS!,Your RUDE and SELF CENTERED! I feel so bad for your little girl as she is stuck with you! You seem to always be running your Mom and Dad down…What goes around comes around! Really would suggest that you go into long term counseling! For you to think to take on Kourtney Kardashian on was STUPID! First of all she is way older than you and has her own business and house! She went to colledge and got a degree. She is not a teenager! I’m a single Mom and I am 50 years old…I was married for a while but, he beat me, so I never married again. Was shocked at what you told your boyfriends Step-Mother: that she was going to be a lone bird??? Are you really that self absorbed? Then pushing marriage on a guy you just met, good way to stay single. What really gets me about you is you try and fool everyone that your a good Mom. But, when you asked your Mom to come watch your daughter so you could go to texas and kept tapping your leg as you were so pissed off at your daughter made me want to PUKE!!!! And for you to tell her that her being bad is the wrong kind of attention. And you talk to her about your problems, and then baby talk. She is not a grown up and you need to speak normal to her! No Mom’s a perfect! But you have to think before you speak or do! Don’t sing anymore as you can’t sing PERIOD!!! Your not Model material at all. Stick with being a Chef if you really can cook? You OWE YOUR MOM AND DAD A GREAT BIG THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS BEING THERE FOR YOU! EVEN WHEN YOU JUST USED THEM….Grow Up and do it Fast!

Lastly, Daniel … When Farrah asked how to “act” around your family and you said “be yourself” – bet you’re kicking yourself now.

Amber needs to rot in jail. What a hot drugged up mess she is. That poor baby, Leah.

And maci, come on now … You’re the only one on the show with any real sense. That was not a smart move – girls at your age would all react that way with a baby momma. That was completely silly and move on. You don’t need to twitter that it would be better for Bentley …that is a moot point when mom and dad didn’t love each other or get along. Therefore, it wouldn’t ha been better or easier because Bentley would not be happy if his parents were not. Use your head, baby girl – don’t be a mean girl.

First of all, Farrah – how can you watch that episode and think anything more than, man – I messed up. Who wants their engagement to come that way?

Second, Farrah’s mother. How can she watch that episode and not be mortified at her piss poor job? You created that mess, Debra.

Third, stop talking to Sophia in baby talk – both Farrah anddebra. She will turnout just as Farrah has. Read a parenting book. Baby talk is weird. Talk to her like a normal person, you all look crazy talking baby talk to that poor child.

Catelyn and Tyler … Get social work degrees, kiddos! Don’t be silly, there’s no real future with human service degrees. There’s not even a licensure process!!

WoW Farrah! Next time you do get a boyfriend plz slow it down and get to know him before you start talking about marriage kids… Maci I really think she loves Ryan and jealous that he has a girlfriend.

If I were Kyle, I’d be a little worried where Maci is concerned. She definitely seems wistful sometimes when talking about Ryan and seemed more than a little unhappy that he has a girlfriend. Amber is just a hot mess; Gary has turned into the ex from h**l all of a sudden (wasn’t he excited that Amber was coming home and they were going to try and make it work again???); and Catelyn & Tyler are going to have wonderful lives. Farrah, wow…I get tense every time she’s on because I know she’s going to bite someone’s head off about 2 seconds into a conversation. I cannot BELIEVE she told Daniel’s stepmother that she would never have kids and that she’s going to be lonely within the first half hour of meeting her. She is unreal. Sophia is actually my favorite out of all the kids, but Farrah, not so much. She is so completely mean and rude to basically everyone she talks to, and the way she treats her mother?? Whoa! Sure we don’t see all of it and there is probably a reason for the tension between those two, but holy heck….if I spoke that way to any of my family or friends I wouldn’t have any for long. Oh wait…does Farrah even HAVE friends anymore? She needs to get her nose out of the air, realize she’s not God’s gift to everyone, and stop putting pressure on her brand-new boyfriend to get married already.

Farrah is so stuck up. Her nasaly voice PISSES me off. She made 1 recipie on the show and f*cked it up. She isn’t model material, mother material. Only material she is,….is MATERIALISTIC! She cries over her baby daddy, but the first show, she wasn’t even going to tell him she was preganant and let him see his daughter. He missed PRECIOUS moments with his daughter. Selfish. ignorant, stuck up, self absorbed. B*TCH! Hope she’s forever alone! Wait till her daughter sees how she treated her daddy! SAD!

Why would Farrah already talk about marriage and getting engaged when she only dated him for 1 month?

If you read an interview with Daniel about what happened he hit the nail on the head when he said it’s evident that she has problems-she has no friends and the few friends that do come into her life end up leaving after a few weeks. You think she might figure out that the reason no one wants to be around her is because of HER attitude. Instead she calls Daniel all kinds of names. She’s alone for a reason and until she figures out it’s her crappy attitude and changes it, she’s going to be the “lone bird.”

Did that delusional bird think there was a such thing as a prince charming in Daniel after she was, without a doubt, rude to his stepmom and dad and then speaking of having more kids Daniel. Her problem is she doesn’t think before she opens up her mouth and she talks too much.

Daniel made the right call not to answer Farrah’s rediculous questions and advances. In the end, he doesn’t look like the type that would raise another man’s child.

Does this writer actually believe-
1. That Amber can’t have Leah because her house was vandalized? The felonies don’t have anything to do with it?
2. That Catelynn and Tyler are blowing off school because they don’t know what majors they want? I am guessing that the first year requirements are identical for a human services major and a social work major.

If it is only a couple of month then you are rushing but if has been a year or so then you aren’t rushing anything! So I voted yes because the is the most appropriate answer.

My goodness, Farrah, don’t you think you should take marriage a little serious at least. So many gay people who have been in a relationship for some many years can not get married, but you already talk about it ONLY after not even two months. No wonder gay have got so pissed off. We, straight people, just don’t take marriage serious any more that is very sad. Farrah, I wish you the best. But please take your time to get to know the person. Dating and marriage are totally different stories. What is the rush?

I actually used to like farrah but didn’t really watch much of the show, but caught that epidsode with her dissing her new mans mother-in-law. WHAT KIND OF PERSON SAYS THAT TO SOMEONE’S MOM??!!! What the F is wrong with your head? Oh, and great job on the multi-taking everything under the sun to try to make yourself famous past this stupid show. For those that don’t know, Farrah is a wanna be singer, a wanna be writer, a wanna be CEO of spaghetti sauce company her and mom made in their bathtub, oh and now she thinks she’s a health advocate. Just go to the absolutely moronic site where she calls herself a “public figure” Wow, shoot yourself. And guess what Farrah? You suck at all of it, oh and your not a model whatsoever. You’re an average looking girl who got picked up cause of this show that made you. stick to being a mom. Amazing you find the time to raise your child pursuing all of these endeavors. Oh, you don’t — your mom looks after you kid. Right. Get a life and your head checked.
