I’ve noticed a trend that lately the “wild” Teen Moms are getting a lot of our attention. Maci inking up her body, Jenelle getting “bigger”, Amber in and out of trouble, and so on. We rarely get to talk about the calmer side of Teen Mom, namely Catelynn and Tyler. They don’t make headlines, don’t do crazy things, and will probably be out of the public spotlight as soon as Teen Mom ends, yet I don’t think they care.
Catelynn and Tyler have been the model couple, making sound decisions after sound decisions, and constantly supporting one another through whatever issues the other is having. When Catelynn is having insecurity issues, Tyler doesn’t go out and party without her, he does his best to boost her esteem and build her confidence. When Tyler is having issues with his family, Catelynn is always there to support him whatever way he needs. They have probably been the “perfect” celebrity couple, yet rarely get any praise or attention for it.
I just wanted to take a moment to promote some real good role models to come out of the show because they’ve certainly earned it. While others are getting plastic surgery or buying cars that are “guaranteed” to get you pulled over, these two quietly renovated their house and posted some pictures of it on twitter today (photos below). In addition, Catelynn replies to a lot of tweets and answers questions about her personal life that you rarely see these days. Here are a few random things Catelynn answered recently…
Q – When was the last time you seen your daughter?
A – a couple Weeks ago
Q – Are you and Tyler still together?
A – Yes
Q – How long have you and Tyler been together?
A – 8 years this July 15th
Q – Did Tyler do that all by himself?? I know he was working on the kitchen before this… (regarding remodeling of their new house)
A – no his ain’t Beth helped him (I assume she meant aunt)
Q – I was wondering how you lost all your weight you look fantastic and I’m trying to get in shape and not having a lot of luck.

A – yes I do
Q – my friend just found out shes 12 wks preg.but isnt ready &doesnt want it. Ive been trying to help idea with adopt any tips??
A – well i would go online find out facts about abortion, adoption, and parnting. Read all those facts to her and help her find the path for her. then do a pros and cons
Those are just a few of the Q & A that Catelynn does on a near daily basis on twitter. It’s incredible to see someone with 360k+ followers take the time to answer what she can. So yea, I know this isn’t a fun, snarky post, but even I need to take a break from the snark and give credit where it’s due. With all these terrible role models out there on TV today (*cough* Jersey Shore *cough*), it’s refreshing to see people like Catelynn and Tyler to balance it all out.
