Welcome to another Monday, TMJ. June here, to recap this week’s train wreck. TV Guide says: “Maci’s daughter Jayde turns one and frets because Ryan’s not around for Bentley; and Farrah moves to L.A., but continues to fight with Simon.” I’m not sure how a one year old understands the relationship between father and son, more or less “frets” over it. She must be pretty smart, is all I can think of.
Amber’s pushing to have the new house ready by the time Leah returns from Florida. Matt and her go to a furniture store and immediately seem to find everything they need. Over the summer, Leah will be spending every other week with Amber. Gary calls Amber to make sure that she remembers when they are getting back to town. Good thing he did, Amber had thought they were coming back on Friday. Gary rejects the idea of Leah staying over with Amber on a school night even though her new house is closer to Leah’s school.
Before dropping Leah off with Amber, Gary reminds her to brush her teeth and to call him. Even though he says he’s not coming in Gary goes to use Amber’s bathroom and to see Leah’s new room. She seems to really like it, though she’s more excited by the toy horse in the corner.
Farrah has a “surprise” for Sophia. It’s the announcement that she’s bought the second house in LA. Sophia, understandably, is not as excited as Farrah is. Debbie is coming with her to make sure the house is in order. When Farrah calls her to confirm, Simon comes up. He paid her for the engagement ring but hasn’t been around since. Farrah arrives at her new house and Debbie is already there. She starts listing off all the things she needs to buy and then slips in that Simon is supposed to pay for all of it. Simon arrives with flowers and a moving truck. An argument soon starts regarding what to do with the furniture.
The producer comes in and starts asking Simon what the schedule is for the furniture. He doesn’t want to talk about because Farrah won’t take anyone else’s opinions into consideration…surprising. She’s in the house, while Simon is still out in the truck, talking to her mom. Well, she mostly complaining about Simon’s sense of humor and the fact that they didn’t make it to Home Depot. Simon orders the production team to get rid of the boxes in the truck and then get rid of the truck. After which, he just leaves. Farrah calls him to get him to take the truck back. When he does she plans to lock up her house and leave.
Farrah goes to get her hair done and visit with her friend Jenna. She tells her that Simon isn’t for her after Farrah says that Simon tries to control her. She does say that people who love each other don’t hurt each other but that goes both ways Farrah, dear.
Catelynn will still be gone for 30 more days but she’s gotta call Tyler to make sure he’s still coming to pick her up. Like chill guys, it is still a month away. The 30 days are over and Catelynn calls Tyler asking him to come pick her up tonight instead of tomorrow morning. Tyler can’t go cause he doesn’t think Nova should be up that late. Instead, Jess the Producer goes for her. Tyler’s waiting up for her in their new house with flowers and a card with a personal note he wrote for her.
Tyler, Catelynn, and Nova go hiking. Tyler’s really into it with Nova in her little pack on his back. On the way back, Tyler asks about what Catelynn’s going to do about the pig and pot. While she’s unsure about the pig, she’s decided that she’s done with pot. Catelynn goes to see her therapist. She says that she scored well during her psych evaluations. Catelynn has learned some important lessons and seems to be much more confident in herself.
Jayde’s first birthday is the day before Maverick’s due date. There’s worry that the one year old might not have a celebration this year. (Sure she won’t remember it either way.) Jayde’s birthday celebration is underway. Ryan wasn’t invited because Maci hasn’t seen him. Regardless, the party seems to go off without a hitch and so Jayde has her first birthday. After the party, Maci has some doubts about not saying anything to Ryan. Taylor suggests that she rest for a bit but Maci shoots it down immediately. Ryan’s whining about not being invited to Jayde’s birthday party. His parents are pushing for him to ask for more time with Bentley.
Maci is annoyed because Ryan isn’t showing up for Bentley’s baseball games. If he does show up it’s only for the last 10 minutes. She doesn’t believe he cares enough because he hasn’t grown up. She decides that Bentley won’t be spending time with Ryan if he can’t make it to the games on time.
