Teen Mom OG returns Monday night with a special two-hour Season 6 premiere episode, and MTV has just shared preview clips for each of the moms: Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham!
Here are each of the clips with their official description from MTV along with a brief recap:
Taylor’s surprise proposal – Taylor (finally) proposes to Maci
As Maci poses for photos on the beach, Taylor chats it up with Teen Mom OG producer Jaala, who is obviously in on the imminent proposal. “On a scale of 1 to 10, how nervous are you right now?” Jaala asks.
“I think I’m actually more excited,” Taylor says. He later reveals he doesn’t have a plan for popping the question, and that he’s “just winging it.”
The result? Taylor and Maci are standing beside each other having their photos taken with Taylor asks her, “Hey, can I ask you something?” The video fades out as we hear Maci exclaim “No way!”
Is Tyler Being too Insensitive? – Tyler reacts to Catelynn’s suggestion that she needs to go on Weight Watchers.
“I think I’m going to join Weight Watchers again,” Catelynn says at the beginning of the clip, as she eats a chicken and cheese quesadilla. Both seem to think it’s a good idea and the conversation turns to how many points Catelynn’s quesadilla would be according to the Weight Watchers system.
After a bit of debate, Tyler yields. “It’s your body, you do what you want,” he tells Catelynn. “I mean, obviously I don’t want no heifer for a wife!” he adds jokingly. (How many Weight Watchers points would Tyler’s foot be, considering he certainly put it in his mouth!)
The fourth wall comes down as producer Jessica simply says “Tyler.”
“I’m just being honest!” Tyler replies. “Would you want to be married to some big heifer?”
Jessa laughs nervously as she tells Tyler: “You come off as so harsh some times!”
“I’m sorry,” Tyler says before asking Catelynn: “Is that harsh?”
“I don’t know,” says Catelynn, “Do you think I’m a heifer right now?”
“Nooo!” Tyler exclaims before doing a “big ol'” fat person impression. “Just know that I love you no matter what,” he adds while eating a French fry.
“Well thanks babe,” Catelynn replies, “I love you too. But damn, I’m like, should I just try to go on Weight Watchers right now and lose all this weight, or are we planning on having, like, a big family?”
Tyler makes a really goofy face and remains silent.
Is Simon Ready for Farrah to Be in Los Angeles? – Farrah and Simon have trouble communicating about her move to Los Angeles.
Farrah and Simon discuss her planned move to Los Angeles when Simon brings up the question of who will be watching Sophia when Farrah is traveling or when she is busy in LA. “I’m totally going to be hiring, like, an au pair to live and travel with me, be here with Sophia, pick Sophia up from school — because that’s what I need,” says Farrah.
If you’re like me you need a brief Wikipedia break:
An au pair (plural: au pairs) is a domestic assistant from a foreign country working for, and living as part of, a host family. Typically, au pairs take on a share of the family’s responsibility for [childcare], and receive a monetary allowance for personal use.
“Is your mom going to be OK with that?” asks Simon.
Of course that question presses Farrah’s button. “Why would I even care if my parents are OK with that? I’m the parent — I’m OK with that. I’m happy about that.”
“OK,” says Simon.
“I’m sorry if you don’t understand it,” Farrah continues. “Maybe you don’t have the same issues as I have with my mom, but f*** it, I’m over that.”
Simon knows enough to change the subject and reveals that he is excited that Farrah and Sophia will be closer to him.
Farrah seems a bit doubtful. “Are you really excited that we’re going to be closer? I don’t know.”
Simon laughs and points out that Farrah keeps interrupting him.
“I mean, this is a conversation, two people can talk,” Farrah argues. “If you’re worried about interrupting then maybe you’re not the right person to talk to then.”
Amber Opens Up About Her Depression – Amber talks about how difficult watching the last season of #TeenMomOG was for her
Amber Portwood’s preview clip starts off with her fiance Matt Baier demonstrating that he has no experience holding a baby despite fathering at least eight children. “Matt has enough kids, he should know,” jokes Krystal.
“Oh, you ah a piece of sh**t is what you ah,” says Matt.
“This should be second nature,” Amber adds before then opening up about how negatively Matt is perceived by fans of the show — and pretty much everyone he has ever been involved with over the past twenty years: “I really want things to cool down with Matt, and people’s perception of him,” she says. “In all reality, I have a worse past than him.”
Krystal changes the subject to Amber’s custody issues with Leah’s dad Gary Shirley. Amber reveals that they have worked out a deal for 50/50 custody, although Leah will be with Gary during school days because he lives closer to her school. Amber says she was motivated to get the agreement done so that Leah wouldn’t continue to be affected by the animosity between her and Gary.
Amber then talks about the difficulty of seeing herself and her daughter Leah on the previous season of Teen Mom OG. “It was bad,” Amber says. “I was crying, I got really depressed, like I wouldn’t get out of bed. I was so depressed after seeing certain things and I had to get on medication.”
Anti depressants?” asks Krystal. “Are you on them now?”
“Yeah,” Amber reveals. “I’m on Lexapro and buspirone for anxiety and depression.”
“Does it help you?” asks Krystal.
“She’s been better lately,” says Matt. “But it went for a couple weeks where I had to force her outta bed. It was tough.”
The two-hour Teen Mom OG Season 6 premiere airs Monday night at 9/8c on MTV.
