Teen Mom OG Season 7 Reunion: 12 Shocking Revelations
It may be hard to believe but it has been nearly a decade since the women of Teen Mom OG began sharing their lives with fans. The hit MTV series has seen Amber Portwood, Catelynn Baltierra, Maci McKinney, and Farrah Abraham go from young, teenage mothers to young adults with more responsibilities than ever before. No matter how much time goes by, the drama in their lives doesn’t stop, and season seven was one intense ride, but fans know that most of the drama and the most shocking information is revealed in the season reunions! Here are the 12 most shocking revelations from Teen Mom OG‘s season seven reunion with Dr. Drew:
12. Saying Goodbye to Farrah
One of the biggest changes of this season came when Farrah Abraham and MTV decided to part ways due to her continuing her career in the adult film industry. With Farrah no longer on the show, and Amber unable to fly because of her pregnancy, only Catelynn and Maci could actually attend the reunion and they both admitted they were relieved they no longer had to deal with Farrah. The pair revealed to Dr. Drew that filming reunions was stressful because it all operated around Farrah and they were told they couldn’t walk down the hall while she was walking down it, and Maci revealed they weren’t even allowed to talk to Farrah’s daughter Sophia. When asked how they felt about her leaving, Catelynn simply said, “I feel like she’s always wanted to go down the direction she’s going down so if that’s what she wants to do then that’s probably what she needs to stay doing.”
11. Catelynn’s Trauma
Those who have watched Catelynn’s journey through 16 and Pregnant up to season seven of Teen Mom OG are well aware her life has never been easy, but it was this season that brought all of her issues to a head. More than ever, Catelynn was open about her depression and how close she was to suicide especially after suffering a miscarriage, all of which caused her to seek treatment three times throughout the season, and for one of the first times she really opened up to Dr. Drew and the audience about what trauma she worked through while in treatment. Catelynn explained that growing up her mother was an alcoholic and rarely every a present parent and that when she was 12 her father moved away with his other kids leaving her with abandonment issues, and she also opened up about her traumatic experiences with having children. She shared that 20-25% of birth moms suffer from PTSD after placing their child for adoption, and treatment made her realize she wasn’t as secure in that decision to place Carly for adoption as she always told herself. Additionally, Catelynn revealed that she was four months clean and sober from smoking pot but admitted she couldn’t speak for Tyler on whether or not he was also clean.
