Teen Mom Bios: Maci | Farrah | Catelynn | Amber | Leah | Chelsea | Kailyn | Jenelle Teen Mom Junkies

Teen Mom’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are continuing their tour by making a stop in the Garden State.  Tylynn will be speaking at the Wayne YMCA Rosen Theater in Wayne, New Jersey, tomorrow, May 10th, at 7:30 p.m.  If I lived anywhere near New Jersey, I would totally be there.  After all, who wouldn’t want to meet the cutest couple on MTV?  (“cutest couple” title dubbed by me).  Their speech will include topics such as “unplanned pregnancy, today’s adoption, and other issues facing young adults and teens,” followed up with a Question and Answer session by the power couple.

After they say hasta la vista to New Jersey, they are heading over to Pennsylvania, so all you Keystone Staters, get ready!

Catelynn and Tyler Teen MomI’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 – weight watchers :-)

Q – Just watching @CatelynnLowell 16 and pregnant episode. What an inspiration you are to young girls. Do you still wear your bracelet from T?
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.

Once again, I am reminded of my awesome idea that no one has taken me up on.  That Teen Mom Crossover is a gold mine just waiting to happen.  Teen Mom 2′s Chelsea Houska met up with Teen Mom’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra in Chicago to film for The Rosie Show, which, I have to admit, I didn’t even know was still airing.  The last time I watched Rosie, she was still throwing Koosh balls at the audience.  If that isn’t a blast from the past, I don’t know what is.  (If she still throws Koosh balls at the audience, just disregard that last sentence.)

I don’t have an air date yet, but the second I do, I’m setting my DVR and letting you all in on it.

Also, according to Chelsea’s daddy, Randy, there is one person on Teen Mom 2 that Rosie doesn’t like:

Back in good old South Dakota, oh so tired tho. @therosieshow was worth it. Guess who she doesn’t like on TM2?

A lot of people suggested Jenelle, but I’m going to have to go with Adam on this one.

How could anyone not like jenelle?We never discussed the other girls,just chelsea’s story.Jenelle is funny,bad decisions maybe but she is ok

Yep.  It’s Adam for sure.  Go, Rosie!

And, just in case you needed to see pure awesomeness, I present you with this:

Hopefully their faces don’t get stuck that way!

I know a lot of people watch Teen Mom and learn a lot of things, for example:

  • Having a baby at 16 gives you a chance at being famous and making decent money
  • Jenelle’s mother is always keeping an eye out for Kiefffahhhh
  • You have to struggle to pay rent but can plop down $5k+ on a boob job
  • Smoking weed is apparently the most addicting thing in the world
  • Your hair can magically change color and length 5 times in one day
  • Friends always just stop what they’re doing and start asking you personal question after personal question

While those are all important life lessons to take away from Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2, what is most important and actually serious is this chart:

teen mom couples success rate(note: I left out Farrah because her ex died in a car accident and didn’t want to remotely make light of that)

The biggest lesson – If you want to stay with your high school sweetheart.  Don’t raise a kid together!

Well, that’s part of it, but the real message is this – The guy or girl you’re madly in love with during your high school years… well, they’re likely not going to be your boyfriend or girlfriend in the next 2-3 years.  This post is not a knock on the moms of teen moms, the chart above is probably as close to accurate as you can get with teen relationships.  The fact is, most don’t work.

So next time you’re doing the dirty deed, just do yourself a favor and use protection.  Don’t get me wrong, kids can be wonderful and I’m sure none of the mothers regret having theirs, but if you honestly think the person you’re with is going to stick around and help you raise the child 24/7.. just use protection because it doesn’t happen often at that age.

tyler teen mom fedoraSo over the past 24 hours you had Big Ben rocking the fedora to his post-game presser (he lost!), and now Tyler from Teen Mom tweeting his look.

My question, who wore it better?   And you have to choose, because you don’t want to break the rule:

Btw, I know Ben and Tyler aren’t friends but both wearing them in the past 24 hours puts them into their own group.

It’s not everyone who meets their soul mate in Junior High, but that’s exactly when Teen Mom’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra met.  7 years later and they are still going strong.  In fact, the engaged couple, who placed daughter, Carly, for adoption in 2009, have finally announced their wedding date!  Catelynn tweeted to her fans:

Yes everyone we picked a date July 15th 2013!!! :-)

I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited about this.  We watched Catelynn and Tyler go through so many ups and downs and they are arguably one of the cutest couples on television.

We at Teen Mom Junkies wish them the best!
