Tyler Baltierra Posts Tribute To Daughter He Gave Up

Anyone who watched 16 & Pregnant will remember the emotional episode where Catelynn and Tyler decided to give up their daughter for adoption. The little girl, Carly, was adopted by a couple named Brandon and Teresa, who agreed to an open adoption with the young couple.

However, as Carly began to grow older, her adoptive parents requested that she not be featured on Teen Mom, or really mentioned that much at all. They also suggested that Catelynn and Tyler not come to visit for their yearly reunion, saying it wasn’t a good time. The birth parents were clearly distraught, as they had hoped to see Carly at least once a year as part of their open adoption.

“But basically, she was like, ‘Don’t make plans to come here,’” Catelynn said of Teresa’s talk with her. “Right now I guess they’re working through some things with Carly,” Lowell added, still reading from Teresa’s text message. “‘She’s at an age where she’s trying to figure out her place in life. She’s a nine-year-old girl with a different story. She just has to get confident in who she is, and we want her to be able to do that in the least confusing way possible. She just needs to mature some.’”

Some people went after Brandon and Teresa, saying it was unfair to change the terms of their adoption after nine years. However, Tyler defended the adoptive parents.

“Regardless of anyone’s opinions, Brandon & Teresa are Carly’s parents & if they decide not having a visit is what’s best for her right now, then we have to trust the parental decisions that we gave them the rights to make in the first place,” Baltierra wrote Twitter. “It’s not always easy, but necessary.”

Despite not being able to see Carly as often as they’d like, there is still an immense love that Catelynn and Tyler have for the little girl. This past week, on her 10th birthday, Tyler posted a sweet message to his biological daughter, accompanied by a picture of their daughter Nova playing with Carly.

10 years ago yesterday, we were only 17.

10 years ago, we brought you into the world. 10 years ago, we only got to hold you by ourselves for a half hour in the hospital as we just cried & stared at you, remembering every little detail of how absolutely perfect you were, since we knew that even though we just met, we had to say goodbye.

10 years ago, we had to make the hardest decision of our lives & give you everything your innocent life deserved that we just couldn’t provide at the time.

10 years ago, we held each other & wept as we watched you drive away in the back of the car with the only parents that were worthy to be yours.

10 years ago…your life changed so many others for the better & has blessed more lives than I can count. We love you so much & hopefully get to see you soon baby girl. Happy Birthday Carly! #Adoption#BirthparentStrong

Kailyn Lowry, another Teen Mom cast member, commented on the post, saying “I have the chills!!! So so proud of y’all & happy birthday to Carly! ♥️”

As for Catelynn, she didn’t post anything about Carly’s birthday on social media, but she’s been open in the past about how the decision to give up her daughter has been a trigger for her mental health issues. Plus, with a 4 year old and newborn baby at home, she’s already got a lot on her mind.

I think it’s sweet that Tyler still loves and supports Carly in such a public way, and I do feel for them that the relationship they thought they’d have with her isn’t what they’re getting.

Do you think Catelynn and Tyler should be upset that Brandon and Teresa changed the agreement?

Could A Fellow “Teen Mom” Star Be Taking One Of Jenelle’s Kids?

Everything is kind of up in the air right now for Jenelle Evans and her kids, after all three of them were removed from her home after her husband, David Eason, viciously murdered the family dog, Nugget. According to Eason, the dog nipped at 2-year-old daughter Ensley’s face, and that was enough for him.

Since the whole situation occurred, local authorities and CPS have been involved, concluding that it was unsafe for Evans’ kids to remain in her care. Jace, 9, Kaiser, 4, and Ensley, 2, were all taken from the house. Jace and Ensley are with Evans’ mom Barbara, who already has primary custody of Jace. Kaiser is currently living with is father Nathan Griffith, but Evans said it was never communicated to her that this would be happening.

“Kaiser was taken from his daycare by his grandmother with no notice or call to me,” the reality star said to Us Weekly. “CPS told Doris to take Kaiser without my consent and still have no legal paperwork signed by the judge stating my kids are taken from me. Nathan and I have talked briefly regarding this situation. [He] and I are to appear in court later this month.”

The entire situation is complicated, as Evans has been fired from Teen Mom 2, but it doesn’t appear that any charges have actually been laid, plus she wasn’t the one who killed the dog. In fact, she was completely distraught that it happened. Since she got fired by MTV, the big question has been how the show will go on. Evans undoubtedly brought a lot of drama with her, and fellow co-star Kailyn Lowry says that it ended up being more of a distraction.

“I think that people did watch the show for Jenelle and I don’t think that that can be denied,” Lowry, told TMZ when they caught up with her. “I think the drama is hurting the show and it’s unfortunate for those who have worked really hard to kind of rebuild our reputation.”

“There’s a difference between daily drama and drama that involves criminal activity,” Lindsie Chrisley, Lowry’s friend, chimed in.

“And hurting living things,” Lowry added.

An interesting bit from the chat is when Lowry brings up the notion that she may be the one to take Ensley.

“People are messaging me and asking me if I’ll take Ensley, so I’m like, ‘Ohhh, I don’t know. I don’t want to get involved.’ I’m not considering it at this time, but I hope that the children are … happy and healthy overall.”

It’s weird to say that she’s “not considering it,” because that concept hasn’t really been brought up at all. Plus, there’s such a dramatic and tenuous history between Evans and Lowry. Lowry sent Evans a “peace offering” after she launched a haircare line, and Evans lit it on fire and posted the video on Instagram. I can’t imagine they ever made a deal to take each others’ children in case of an emergency. That being said, MTV may have suggested it to make for better television.

Lowry has only publicly commented on the situation one other time, which was after Evans was fired from the show.

“I have refrained from commenting on the disturbing situation involving David Eason and Jenelle Evans while I wrapped my head around the murder of Nugget,” Lowry wrote on Instagram. “To say I am disgusted and appalled over David’s actions doesn’t begin to touch on my true feelings. Being the owner of dogs myself, I am heartbroken and sickened by what happened to Nugget. I hope that Jenelle and her children are safe and take the necessary steps to get the help that is clearly needed.”

MTV

Evans and Eason appeared in court this week to discuss the matter of custody of the kids, but there’s been no word as to what was specifically discussed or if any decisions were made.

What do you think of this whole situation?

Farrah Abraham Posts Tribute To Daughter’s Late Father

Farrah Abraham sky-rocketed to fame when she appeared on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant. She had an attitude, yes, and she definitely could have treated her parents better, but there’s no denying that the high-school cheerleader was met with tragedy during an already emotional time in her life.

Farrah’s boyfriend, Derek Underwood, died in a car accident just one month before Farrah gave birth to their daughter, Sophia. Farrah has always spoken highly of Derek, and makes sure to tell Sophia all about the man she calls “Daddy Derek.” Every year, they visit his grave on the anniversary of his death, and always post photos of him on his birthday.

This year, both Farrah and Sophia wrote sweet messages to Derek on what would have been his 29th birthday, including pictures of him and Farrah when they were younger.

To one very special person I celebrate and remember like no other-Happy Birthday Derek I love you, May 8th you would be 29 today, birthdays used to be so simple.

You gave me that once in a lifetime love of my life everyone so deserves, you gave me so many 1st’s, from virginity, proms, trips, my first ring, you showed me unconditional love, you showed me what relationships are, from prom, graduation, to our only child…all the events that had happened the entire sequence was one filled with the thrill, love & loss.

Now I share a birthday breakfast in your memory & all our best photos and your childhood photos with our daughter. I see all of your messages to me, & your written letters. Thank you for being the best loving man I know, and one of the strongest. All the memories we had. Our groups of friends & haters can’t deny our legendary times, from school, parties, summer nights & in-between.

On the 10th anniversary of Derek’s death, Farrah said she’s not sure the pain she feels from his death will ever go away.

“As far as I can see, grief will never truly end,” she said. “It may become softer over time, more gentle, and some days will feel sharp. But grief will last as long as love does — forever. It’s simply the way the absence of your loved one manifests in your heart. A deep longing, accompanied by the deepest love. Some days, the heavy fog may return, and the next day, it may recede, once again. It’s all an ebb and flow, a constant dance of sorrow and joy, pain and sweet love.”

I may not like Farrah or what she represents, but I can absolutely respect her for working hard to keep Sophia’s late father present in their lives.

Jenelle Evans Fired From “Teen Mom 2”

Things just keep getting worse and worse for Jenelle Evans and her family. This past week, Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, shot and killed their family dog, Nugget. The French bulldog had allegedly nipped at Jenelle and David’s young daughter Ensley, prompting David to slam the dog against the back deck and bring her to the woods to shoot her.

At first, the story was just speculation, but then David confirmed the reports on his Instagram page.

“I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face. Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s—t at all,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge whether or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”

Jenelle was extremely upset, obviously, that her dog had been killed, and she told Us that she was considering divorce.

“At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids,” she said, noting that the couple were not on speaking terms. “[Divorce is] in thoughts, but nothing is finalized. … I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends. David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my 2-year-old, Ensley. He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs. He just took her and shot her in the woods … about two acres away from the house.”

There were questions about whether or not Jenelle would still appear on Teen Mom 2. David had previously been fired from the show after his homophobic comments, and the show had been trying to film around him when shooting Jenelle, which proved to be difficult. Now, however, they won’t have to worry about that at all…as MTV has announced they are no longer including her in the show.

“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of ‘Teen Mom 2’ with him since,”  spokesperson said. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

It’s an interesting move, as Jenelle really didn’t have anything to do with the death of her dog, at least not that we know of. However, it’s possible that they’re firing her due to what she hasn’t done. According to the Columbus Country Sheriff’s Department, there wouldn’t be any investigation into animal cruelty charges against David unless Jenelle pressed charges. They refused to work off of “sensationalized media reports or social media posts.”

Authorities were sent to David and Jenelle’s home to conduct a welfare check, but because of a pit bull on the porch and a load of “No Trespassing” signs, they felt it was unsafe to go on to the property. After all, David has bragged about his arsenal of weapons, and has stated multiple times that he is not afraid to “protect” his property from intruders.

If MTV found out that Jenelle wasn’t going to press charges, it’s possible they used this as a reason to cut ties with the mom of three. The network already lost a bunch of advertisers after the news of Nugget’s death broke, including TWIX, Chipotle, Dove Chocolate and animal treats company Greenies. All of the companies said they didn’t want to be associated with the series, as they have a zero-tolerance policy towards animal cruelty.

Kailyn Lowry, also a star of Teen Mom 2, spoke out about David’s actions on her own social media account. Kailyn and Jenelle have had very public feuds in the past, but this situation seems to have allowed calmer heads to prevail.

“I have refrained from commenting on the disturbing situation involving David Eason and Jenelle Evans while I wrapped my head around the murder of Nugget,” Kailyn wrote. “To say I am disgusted and appalled over David’s actions doesn’t begin to touch on my true feelings. Being the owner of dogs myself, I am heartbroken and sickened by what happened to Nugget. I hope that Jenelle and her children are safe and take the necessary steps to get the help that is clearly needed.”

I think Jenelle is in a bad situation and feels like she can’t escape, but I also think she needs to seriously consider how David and his antics will affect her family and their well-being in the future.

Do you think MTV made the right call?
