‘Teen Mom OG’: Amber Feels Out Of Place In Her Daughter’s Life
Tonight’s episode started out with Gary including Amber in his shopping trip to get Leah school supplies. Gary knows it’s important to involve his ex, because she missed Leah’s preschool days. Everything starts off smooth, they both are getting along great and at one point we see Gary flirting pretty hard with Amber by tickling her. He even makes jokes about spending time together, “You got to shop with me, you got some Gary time, how does that feel?”
Obviously this confuses Amber and she tells her cousin Krystal, “I needed that. It made me laugh & made me smile… I don’t know what’s going on.”
Gary on the other hand discusses the situation with his brother and says, “I realize I do still care about her, but there is the question, what if? What if we were together and what if I gave her a chance?” To which his brother quickly reminds him, “If you ever start doubting, just pull out your old episodes.”
Gary invites Amber over to help Leah get ready for her first day of school. On the way to school, Leah tells her mom she needs to meet Kristina (Gary’s girlfriend). This quickly sets Amber off and she refuses to walk Leah to class. She then takes her anger out on Gary and gives him the silent treatment all the way back to his house. She lashes out and says, “Get the f***ing camera out of my face” and drives off.
Amber feels Gary has made a whole family with Kristina and she doesn’t fit there. She knows Kristina doesn’t take the place of her as a mother, but she can’t help but feel left out in her daughter’s life. To make matters worse, when Amber calls to talk to her daughter, Leah pretty much hangs up on her and says she doesn’t want to talk to her right now.
Amber obviously is really hurt, and confesses to her cousin that, “I don’t have that family home, but with Gary she has Kristina and the whole family thing. She has to have that family aspect and I can’t provide that for her right now.” Amber feels that if she asks for full custody, she would be ripping her daughter out of her family home.
Catelynn & Tyler Reveal The Sex Of Their Baby
Although Catelynn and Tyler aren’t on the same page when it comes to a date for their wedding, they both agree on a gender revealing party. At Catelynn’s doctor appointment, they have the ultrasound tech put the sex of the baby into a sealed envelope. Catelynn continues to hope for a girl while Tyler refers to the baby as a boy.
Both Catelynn and Tyler decide to publicly announce their pregnancy on social media at the same time and receive an outpour of support. As for revealing the sex? The couple throw a gender revealing party and opt to use a confetti filled piñata to find out the sex of their baby. The family gathered around as the couple ripped apart the piñata revealing that it’s going to be a girl. Catelynn is ecstatic, but Tyler does seem to be a little upset that it’s not a boy.
Maci Breaks Down Over Ryan In Therapy
Maci is at her breaking point when it comes to dealing with her ex, Ryan. He continues to be absent in their son, Bentley’s life, and pushes their kid off onto his parents. Maci tries and tries to reach out to Ryan, but he only dismisses her. Bentley is starting kindergarden and Maci is worried his father won’t be there. Ryan tells his dad, Larry, he won’t make it Bentley’s first day of school, because he has work. He doesn’t even tell Maci himself, instead he uses his mom as the middle man to break the news to her.
Ryan’s parents both begin to get upset that Ryan isn’t willing to put the effort into communicating with Maci and that he isn’t showing much effort into having a relationship with Bentley. Larry admits to the cameras, “Im over it. Did you get this on camera? Do you believe that bull crap?”
The day comes when Maci has to bring Bentley to his first day of school all alone. She turns into an emotional wreck as soon as she gets back into her car. She then heads to therapy where she continues to get cry over Ryan being absent in Bentley’s life. She confesses that she doesn’t want to ruin the picture that Bentley has in his head of Ryan, but doesn’t want to lie to their son.
Tyler Upsets Catelynn About Her 20lb Weight Gain
Tyler is usually very supportive of Catelynn, but during tonight’s episode he got on her case about her pregnancy weight gain. He asks her how much she gained during her first pregnancy and then continues to probe about the amount of pounds she put on so far for this one. “I read online that in the first four months you should only be gaining 5-9 lbs.” Catelynn quickly responds by admitting that she’s already gained 20 lbs. “I know, that’s because your ignoring it.”
His response sets her off and she says, “In any girl’s mind they would be like shut the f*ck up I know I’m fat and I am going to get fatter. So you’re either going to love me or not! I feel like I can’t enjoy my pregnancy.” She also says, “If I crave a slice a pizza, I’m going to eat a slice a pizza, even if it puts 2lbs on me or not.”
