With Farrah Abraham fully back in the fold, Monday's Teen Mom Season 11 Episode 6 saw tensions rise faster and hotter on MTV. Why specifically?
If you watch Teen Mom online, you know the 23-year-old firebrand returned to the show last week in epic fashion. Well, the drama was just beginning.
This week, her co-stars were told of the producers’ decision to reach out to Farrah, and reactions were mixed on Teen Mom Season 11 Episode 6.
Amber Portwood, for her part, was very much cool with Abraham, telling an MTV producer, “Good, she shouldn't have been taken off in the first place."
"No matter how much I don't like somebody, we're different now," she said of Farrah. "She has a good story to tell. We're all very different stories.”
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, who feuded with Farrah on Couples Therapy but ultimately quashed that beef, seemed optimistic as well.
“It doesn't bug me at all,” Catelynn told the cameras.
“Our beef is gone ... she can be a good person.”
Maci Bookout, contrarily, was absolutely livid.
As teased in our Farrah Abraham interview last week by Farrah herself, Maci was adamant about her distaste for Farrah and sharing the show with her.
“If this is true, I'm done,” the redhead said. “I’m not doing this anymore. I'm not going to have my 6-year-old son on a show with someone who did porn.”
Petty? Overly melodramatic? Her beau says no.
Her baby daddy Taylor McKinney added that “Everything [Maci]’s trying to build and the message that she's trying to portray" could now be compromised.
"She feels like every time she takes a step forward in [showing how being a young mom is hard] ... being linked to Farrah it takes her two steps back.”
A bit of a stretch if you ask us, even if there is absolutely no denying that Farrah's post-Teen Mom career is ... well documented and a little suspect.
Still, there's no reasoning with Bookout, who says she's ready to book it out of the show as a result of the Backdoor superstar being invited back.
Maci fumed over the news, ranting, “I'm actually really mad. My feelings are hurt. This is bulls--t. I'm not doing it. You're not going to talk me into it.
"There's no discussion. This is it. I'm pissed off. I'm really, really mad. As far as I'm concerned, you guys can leave now. This is over. I'm done.”
At least for the moment, she is.
From that point on, we didn't see any more of Maci or little Bentley, only Bentley's father Ryan Edwards, who is really quite a piece of work these days.
Meanwhile, unaware of how much Maci Bookout apparently hates her, Farrah Abraham is dealing with her own drama from her mom, Debra Danielson.
“I feel like my mom is just around me to suck up and use me,” Farrah says of her mother's requests for money and to move in with her in Austin.
We also learn about Abraham's newest boyfriend Simon Saran, and how things are getting pretty serious pretty fast between these two lovebirds.
Hope you're prepared, Simon.
Speaking of new romances, Amber's long-distance boyfriend Matt Baier is 19 years older than she, and a former addict. That's quite a bit of baggage.
They seem pretty smitten, however, and we see Matt team up with Amber in strategizing how to deal with an increasingly controlling Gary Shirley.
Baier puts his money were his mouth is, too, meeting up with Gary to work it out - and bro out - face to face. Their exchange actually went pretty well.
Is this the moment where both Gary and Amber turned the page in life and moved on amicably with their respective partners? It very well could be.
Elsewhere, Catelynn Lowell is distraught to learn she has gestational diabetes, which could lead to her baby daughter having childhood diabetes.
Luckily, beautiful little Novalee Reign is born safely in a bittersweet moment five years in the making after they placed Carly for adoption in 2009.
