Teen Mom OG Recap: Keep on Chugging

by at .

Last night on Teen Mom OG Season 5 Episode 15, Catelynn Lowell looked refreshed in rehab when Tyler and Nova paid her a visit.

That was welcome news, but would it last?

This installment of the MTV reality hit marked the troubled star's first "family week" visit while in treatment for mental health issues.

Tyler Baltierra was was feeling overwhelmed, not just by Cate's struggles but with his business and his father's own rehab admittance.

This was about Catelyn, though, and Tyler joined her in treatment to focus on her therapy and recovery, along with Lowell's parents.

Cate's mom and dad felt like her miscarriage was a “trigger” for her breakdown, and they certainly weren't alone in that assessment.

According to her husband, it was worse than they know.


“All I know is that I think the miscarriage was probably one of the most traumatic things she’s ever dealt with,” Tyler said.

Our continued thoughts and prayers are with Catelynn.

Meanwhile, Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon brought her daughter Leah to Florida during her school vacation.

There, Amber’s brother Shawn met Andrew for the first time, putting him through the wringer about his motivations.

These days, you do have to wonder what anyone who gets with a Teen Mom star that quickly has up his sleeve ...

Amber Portwood Flaunts Major Cleavage

They talked about the fact that no, Glennon's not just in this for money and fame, and they also discussed a future wedding.

Portwood noted that she's been engaged four times before (!) and that they hadn't really discussed a timeline yet this time.

Amber said no when asked if she'd get a prenup. Interesting. 

In Tennessee, Maci Bookout came home from her trip to Nicaragua, where she was filming Discovery's Naked and Afraid.

According to Farrah Abraham, this isn't much different than the outside pursuits that got her fired. Keep telling yourself that.

Finally, Ryan Edwards' wife Mackenzie Standifer decided she was going back to school ... and that she wanted another kid.

Yikes. Are you sure you're ready for that? Is he?

Mackenzie told a friend that Ryan Edwards' relationship with his son, Bentley, is not as bad as it's portrayed in the media.

Standifer says he’s never been an absent father, though if you watch Teen Mom OG online, he sure looks the part at times.

Here's hoping that if and when these two do decide to become parents, that they're 100 percent invested. Maybe even 110.
