There's a strange phenomenon taking place lately in which the Teen Moms reveal a detail of their personal life and then get angry when people repeat it.
Jenelle Evans was the first to practice this strange habit, changing her relationship status to "single" on Facebook, then getting upset when fans speculated that she might be getting divorced.
Now, Catelynn Lowell is following in Jenelle's footsteps.
She's revealed that she's separated from Tyler Baltierra, but she gets extremely upset when anyone else talks about the situation.
Take a look:
The Happy Former Couple
On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Tyler and Catelynn revealed that they've decided to live apart for a period of one month.
The decision comes after a year that truly put the Baltierras marriage to the test.
Catelynn suffered a miscarriage and the incident took a tremendous psychological toll.
In response to the situation, Catelynn checked into a rehab facility in Arizona on multiple occasions, a decision that's been widely criticized.
The Backlash Begins
Many felt that Catelynn was abandoning her husband and young daughter by repeatedly running off to Arizona.
One Supportive Husband
Tyler stepped up and assumed single parent duties in Catelynn's absence.
Taking a Toll
But it seems that Catelynn's frequent and lengthy absences have had a negative impact on her marriage.
Breaking the News
On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, it was revealed that Catelynn and Tyler would be spending some time apart.
Taking a Break
Specifically, the couple will be living in separate homes for a period of 30 days.
A Bad Sign?
Cate and Tyler are calling it a trial separation, but not surprisingly, fans think a divorce is in their future.
Clearing the Air
Now, Catelynn is taking to social media to set the record straight,
Protest Too Much?
And many believe Catelynn's defensiveness is a sign that she's concerned about the future of her marriage.
"YES we are having a 30 day reflection time," Catelynn wrote in a lengthy Instagram post that's since been deleted.
Setting the Record Straight
"NO we are not getting a divorce!" Lowell added.
"YES I know what I put him and nova through when I left for treatment!" Catelynn continued.
Tyler Steps Up
"He was AMAZING and supported me the whole time! I also knew I had to go so I wouldn't commit SUICIDE," she wrote.
What HE Wants
"I am supporting what he wants now! WE love each other and ALWAYS WILL!" Lowell went on.
Making Her Point
"So my family would of been better off if I just took my own life? NO! Now GOODBYE and I'm done explaining myself!" Catelynn concluded.
For emphasis, she added the hashtags "#loveyourself #loversandfriends #myhusband"
Over the Top?
Needless to say, Catelynn -- who's currently pregnant with her third child -- has a flair for the dramatic.
Shouting It Out
All-caps talk about TRAUMA and SUICIDE is not uncommon on her social media pages.
Assuming the Worst
Many fans have accused Lowell of speaking in such terms in order to guilt Tyler into staying.
Obviously, we have no way of knowing if that's the case. But if it is, it didn't work.
Thus far, Tyler has had little to say about his trial separation.
He's Said Enough
But actions speak louder than words, and it's hard to believe Tyler would ask for a separation if he wasn't at least considering divorce ...
