Reunion Over Rehab
"Cate got permission to go home a few days early," one insider told Radar at the time she left treatment. "She wants to be home for a while before getting ready for the reunion."
A Dangerous Distraction?
Many fear that fame and her professional obligations have distracted Catelynn from focusing on her mental health. They point out that she's checked into rehab three times in the past year and has left ahead of schedule each time.
So no Amber and no Farrah. The first absence is rather unexpected, the second not so much. Of course, if you think that's the only surprise in store, you don't know the TMOG reunion.
Yes, while Farrah wasn't on hand for the taping, viewers can expect an appearance by her divisive mother, Debra Danielsen.
A Last-Minute Decision?
There's reason to believe that Deb's inclusion in the reunion was a last-minute call by producers. Just weeks before taping, she told Radar that she did not expect to be a part of the show.
