So last night was the long awaited Reunion Special with Dr. Drew and all of our beauties from this season of Teen Mom. I know we get all jazzed up thinking Dr. Drew is going to call supreme BS, and give us what we want, but that never happens. It’s just a bunch of soft ball questions, complete with Dr. Drew’s pensive “Sad Panda Face” all the time. But some interesting things surfaced on the entirely too long special, so let’s talk about it…
Well let’s say “Hello” to Farrah’s new nose…not that it makes that Halloween mask worthy “Ugly Cry Face” any less scary, but it’s a good nose job. I’m still trying to figure out ol’ Farrah. She’s the worst interview ever, that’s for sure…
Dr. Drew: So it’s had to be hard to go through that
Dr. Drew: Are you working on it?
Dr. Drew: Can you answer any questions with more than one word?
Farrah: Yes, obviously.
She still has a chronic case of bitchface, but I’m starting to think all the anger is a defense mechanism because she’s really, really socially awkward. Think Kelly Bensimon from RHONY. She doesn’t know how to act, so she’s just mean. It was nice though to see her get up and hug the girl in the audience, which leads me to believe that she’s not just a brat, but she’s a good person underneath all those extentions.
Demonic Debra came on out, and she seemed ok. Dr. Drew sorta kinda checked her a bit, but well, stopped short of actually saying anything. Come to find out everything we already assumed about the altercation was right, it was mutual combat. They got into a tussle, Debra popped her, Farrah got the last word by calling the popo. Seems about right.
So nothing new with Farrah, she came a long way this season, and I hope it keeps up!
Wow. We sure figured out a lot with ol’ Maci this week! Turns out I was right about her not being such an angel after all. She’s quite the little minx! We found out that she wasn’t the sweet little innocent virgin she claimed to be when she got pregnant with Ryan’s baby, but she was seeing Kahhhhhl right up until that time! No wonder Kyle’s mom got a DNA test! I would too!
I also was right that Kyle is the, to paraphrase Chris Rock, “Dude in a glass jar, break incase of emergency.” He’s her back up, has been her backup, and will always be her backup. I was Maci, and I had one of those. The guy you string along and keep close just in case the hot guy dumps you, there’s always someone to be with. So I can’t fault her for that, but she needs to just own it. Kyle’s her chump.
Loved, loved, loved infinity how Dr. Drew saw what I saw that Ryan and Maci are sooooo still inlove with one another. Note the dramatic hostile body language protesting waaaaay too much! These two need to quit being so stubborn and just get it over with. Wonder how Kyle felt watching that happen. I was really psyched that Dr. Drew was going to give us some drama and make Rahhhhn and Kaaaaahl meet right there on the spot! But no…no fun for us. They can say they’ve never met til Christmas next year, but I’ll never buy it. They dislike eachother too much. Something tells me a mano a mano discussion happened on the DL betwixt those two. And props to Ryan for having some class and not throwing Maci under the bus when he had every opportunity to. Good for him.
But all in all lil’ Trans Am is the best kid in the best situation, so Maci does get props for that. She’ll grow out of this being a tiring girl act she’s got going on.
Catelynn and Tyler
Ok, what the hell was wrong with Catelynn’s hair? Put the volumizer down, and step away slowly. Yikes. That was a blow-out! And the Monroe piercing? Really? Ew. But she did look beautiful because she’s a beautiful soul. We didn’t get anything Earth shattering in their segment, except Tyler became a man to me last night, and I have totally forgiven him for being a teenage jerk over the ex-boyfriend. The way he hugged her when she cried over Carly’s first steps and how he said he loved her even more? Oh, man. Swoon!
Loved Dr. Drew calling April to the carpet about abuse. April was SO HIGH! Holy crap! Glad the lab is back in business, whoa. Dr. Drew could barely suppress his giggles when he talked about ‘recovery’…maybe it’s an audition for Celebrity Rehab 5. I’m also outraged that no one in Catelynn and Tyler’s lives ever mentioned Alanon or Celebrate Recovery to them. THAT’s what they need. I really hope they follow through with that. And loved the healthy boundaries of being the distant Aunt and Uncle to Carly. Good for them. These kids are so awesome, and I am totally sure they’re going to make something of themselves.
Ugh. This was such a colossal waste of time. Stoopid Dr. Drew making that concerned constipated Panda Bear face, and giving Amber a fresh set of excuses to use. This girl has some pround problems, that’s for sure. But I know crazy, taking one to know one and all, and this girl is scary crazy. She knows exactly what she’s doing, the game she’s playing, and what she’s trying to gain. Look at her eyes man! If you can see them under all those black ink tears she cries…they’re just vacant and dead. “I didn’t know I hit him that many times,” boo-hoo, boo-hoo…girl, you are back pedaling. Big time. Cry yourself out of it again. And Dr. Drew’s all “abuse, trauma, blahs, blahs” and I’m all, “psycho-sociopath, drug addict, manipulative hosebeast, c’mon Dr. Drew!” The eyes totally give it away. Go back and watch her talk in any of the episodes, especially when she tried to be ‘sorry’ or the ‘victim’. So I’m not sure treatment would even work. Consequences would work. Like cooling her jets in jail for a minute. Losing her child for a minute. That might snap her right. But here’s more proof. When Dr. Drew was all, “Why didn’t you call the cops, Gary?”
“Yeah Geeeeeeary, were you embarrassed?”
See? Calculated retort showing her true motivation, and not so sorry in the least. Let’s just hand me that PhD and be done with it. This isn’t a girl with a chemical imbalance, or something she can’t control. This is a girl with some deep personality issues.
I wanted to hear more about weightloss, the boyfriend, and the filthy apartment. But noooo, Orangina the Bedbeast crying her black ink tears of evil took up all the question asking time.
And that’s where we end this second season. Some advanced, some regressed, and I’m sure they’ll still be in the news for a while before the third season they’re filming now starts back up again.
What did you think of the reunion special?
