Teen Mom OG has gone all in on Bristol Palin this season.
For better or worse.
Despite a pretty severe drop in the ratings for the first few episodes, the show has dedicated a bulk of its time to Bristol's failing marriage.
She and Dakota Meyer continue to clash over the latter's PTSD and the effect it has on the couple's relationship.
Things have turned very ugly between the now-former spouses.
What prompted Palin to break down into a puddle of tears on the latest Teen Mom OG installment?
Scroll down for a recap of storylines and events...
We opened this week with Palin taking off for Los Angeles in order to support son Tripp's appearance on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors. This enabled her and Dakota to get a break after last week's very difficult talks and admissions.
Now What, Though?
Meyer was anxious to get the divorce process over with, however, so he called up his estranged spouse. And Palin immediately became combative, replying: “I know my lawyer sent you something the other day about, you know, please don’t touch my stuff. As soon as I find a new house, I’m be gone like the wind."
I'd Like Some Props!
Bristol continued on this call, giving herself a lot of credit for some reason by adding: "There’s no need for us to fight. There’s no need for us to have bad blood between us. It’s all gonna be good. I’ll be there. I’m a great mom. I’ll continue to be a great mom.”
"Do you see what I have to deal with on the back side of it? It's around and around, it's way off topic," Dakota told producers after the call. "Why do the attorneys have to come into it? I have no doubt that her mom is sitting right next to her, stoking that fire. It's unfortunate that a communication about the children has to be this exhausting."
Don't Ya Know?!?
Sarah Palin was in Los Angeles with her daughter, offering advice like only she can. "Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn," Sarah told her child. According to the former Vice Presidential candidate, the lesson here had something to do with "possessions and materialism" and how they don't "amount to a hill of beans."
Life is Suddenly Amazing!
Back in Austin, Texas, Dakota said the two weeks without Brisol around made him the "happiest that I've ever been since 2015." He added it felt "like what someone would feel like after they get out of a life sentence prison: incredible." LOL/OUCH!
