August 31, 2011 — ‘Teen Mom’ was back on MTV with an all new episode on Tuesday. Viewers watched as Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell struggled with family issues.
Maci loves being a mom, and can’t decide whether she should go back to school, or take time off to spend with Bentley. Although those close to her are encouraging the ‘Teen Mom’ to go back to school, Maci feels like she’s missing precious moments with her son while she’s gone.
Maci would love to be a stay at home mom, but her live-in boyfriend, Kyle King, hasn’t found a job yet. So, when Bookout gets an informative text from ex-boyfriend, Ryan Edwards, about a job opening at his work for Kyle, the couple are confused, calling the situation “weird.”
Farrah is still trying to figure out where she wants to move. Abraham, an Iowa native, didn’t like California, so she decides to check out Arizona, and brings her parents along with her. However, the trip takes a turn for the worse when the the family starts arguing about Farrah’s future.
Finally, Abraham tells her parents that they need to have a more open line of communication, and her father, whom she calls by his first name, Michael, suggests that they go to counseling together.
Amber has moved into her own house, and is dating a new guy, Clinton. However, Gary’s still trying to win the mother of his child back, and sends her five dozen roses. It’s Christmas time, and Portwood is struggling with the anniversary of the death of her baby sister, Candice.
Amber, Gary, and Leah all get together to decorate their Christmas tree, and have a nice moment as a family, with no fighting. When Portwood tells Shirley about her feelings he comforts her, and the couple bond.
Catelynn and Tyler move into a nicer place. Lowell is surprised when she gets a call from her father, who she hasn’t seen in over four years, telling her that he’s coming into town. Catelynn is nervous and excited, as this is the first time her father will meet Tyler.
Catelynn’s dad is nothing but supportive, and gets choked up as he looks at photos of his granddaughter, Carly, whom Catelynn and Tyler gave up for adoption. Lowell’s father, Dave, hopes to move closer to his daughter, and Catelynn ends the visit feeling good about her relationship with her dad.
What will happen next?
Maci feels overwhelmed when Kyle seriously injures himself, and she’s left with too much on her plate, Farrah considers moving to Florida, Amber gets arrested, and Catelynn and Tyler re-evaluate their relationship. What were your thoughts on Tuesday’s episode of ‘Teen Mom?’
