‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Catelynn Lowell Calls Out Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood & Mackenzie McKee for Not Reaching Out to Her After Her Recent Miscarriage

“Still waiting on those phone calls, ladies.”

As the Season 9 premiere of Teen Mom OG draws closer, Catelynn Lowell is calling out three of her co-stars for not reaching to her after she suffered a miscarriage last year. 

In December, Catelynn revealed she had a miscarriage on Thanksgiving Day, just days after finding out she was pregnant with her fourth child. (Cate and husband Tyler Baltierra are parents to daughters Nova, 5, and Vaeda, 1, and the biological parents of Carly, who was adopted shortly after her 2009 birth.) 

This week, however, Cate shared that only one of her ‘Teen Mom OG’ co-stars reached out to her after the news of her miscarriage had been made public: Cheyenne Floyd. In an interview with Us Weekly, Cate admitted she was upset that the other girls– Amber PortwoodMaci Bookout and Mackenzie McKee— didn’t bother to check in with her.

“Cheyenne is the only one that ever reached out to me,” Cate told Us Weekly. “She was like, ‘I’m so sorry. How are you doing? I’m here to talk,’ and we would message back and forth. For her to just ask, ‘Are you OK?’ I was like, ‘Wow.’ … I just let her know how important that was to me that she really reached out just to see how I was doing.” 

Earlier this month, Cate even took a moment to give Cheyenne a shoutout on social media for being such a great friend. 

“I want to take a moment to thank you so much for being a great friend,” Cate posted along with a photo of herself and Cheyenne. “For reaching out to make sure I was OK when one of the hardest things happened to me! When I first met you when they brought you on the show I knew you and I would get along! So glad to have you a part of our crew.” 

Cate said not hearing from her other co-stars did “bug” her, as she feels as though she’s reached out to them “when they’re going through things.” 

“I was totally sending good vibes from the comforts of my couch… “

“I try to be there, but I also have to have that mindset that everybody is not going to do what I would do,” she said. 

(As ‘Teen Mom OG’ fans saw, Cate— as well as Maci and Cheyenne— flew to Indiana to to support Amber at her court hearing in 2019.) 

While (nearly all of) Cate’s co-stars stayed silent after her loss, she said she’s regularly communicated with the group over the years to catch up. 

“Not so much parenting advice, but it’s really like, ‘Hey, how are you doing? How is your relationship? How is the family? What’s been going on,’” she said. 

So far Maci, Amber and Mackenzie have all remained silent in regard to what Catelynn said.

Cate’s storyline on the upcoming season of ‘Teen Mom OG’ will reportedly revolve around her miscarriage. 

Season 9 of ‘Teen Mom OG’ premieres Tuesday, January 26 on MTV. 

UPDATE! Amber Portwood is claiming that she did, in fact, reach out to Cate after the miscarriage but Catelynn must have “forgot.” Click here to read Amber’s interview.

  1. It’s so hard to believe this story. I know that’s a shitty thing to say, but it is. Especially with all of her clickbait bullshit about the miscarriage.

    And Cate is just an all around super selfish person. Being friends with her has got to be so emotionally and mentally draining.


  2. Girl, we are in the middle of a pandemic. Everyone has their own stuff and mental health to worry about. Sorry you arent a priority to everyone else.


  3. Could they just go away? Dies everyoke gage to kiss their butts? Did you get pregnant to gage a child and now for attention


  4. I think Cate is being a bit much, it looks so thirsty to bemoan about it online. It screams the need for attention for a drama loving fanbase. Also if they were real friends then Cate would have handled this privately.


  5. Did they even know…? Man I’m at the age where if I go through some shit, I deal with it on my own or with my partner or whatever the situation must be. I wouldn’t give two ?‘s if anyone reached out to me. Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter and nothing anyone says will make me feel better. That validation ? is for teenagers… oh wait, Catelynn is stuck in the past.


  6. I have mixed feelings about this! Like most of you, I question the validity of her story. If she did have a miscarriage, that is heartbreaking for her and Tyler. But she has used this story for her own financial gain so many times that it’s hard to believe her now!! I never knew she did all those clickbait stories on SM until seeing all the comments on here and then I decided to research it and can’t believe she, or someone who runs her SM, actually posted stuff like that! All to get paid! Like these girls don’t make enough money for doing absolutely nothing!! I don’t know if I’d be so pissed off about Mackenzie because, from what we see, they’re not that close! I’d be mostly pissed off about Amber! Cate not only went to support her during her court appearance where she was 10000% guilty but she also flew out there when Amber was going through postpartum after James!! So yeah I can definitely see the frustration there! All Amber had to do is make a phone call or send a text…all of which can be done from the comfort of her own couch!!!


  7. To use social media or a gossip mag to put some story how your co workers didn’t reach out to because you had another miscarriage just in time for filming. I’m sorry I used to really admire her for her adult decision to give Carly to a family who could actually care for her but now we have come here. I think they should have taken a note out of Chelsea’s book and retire while you were ahead. I fear a bumpy road ahead for cate if she uses social media and news outlets to bash other coworkers.


  8. Why does she need them to reach out to her? Hasnt she miscarried a bunch of times already? She really needs to work on learning how to cope with the real problems she has instead of breaking down and running away to “rehab” everytime she feels any type of way. She is teaching her girls to run away from their problems. We all have issues we deal with in everyday life there is no need to announce every thing that happens to you. Maybe they thought she would like her privacy in this matter. I know I did. But who am I kidding. She needs to focus on paying her taxes and stop looking for sympathy and pity. Sorry not sorry


      1. It’s not a matter of being “less upset” about subsequent miscarriages but she knew she was pregnant for about 24 hours. It’s not like she even had time to adjust to the fact that she was pregnant or even begin to bond with it. Very sad, yes. Especially when that is pretty much all she’s been putting her life focus on – trying to replace Carly. But it’s not a huge tragedy/trauma in her life like she’s Making it out to be.


  9. Catelynn.. come on. You’ve been to retreats and gone through therapy and all that mess. Been there. Be proactive about your connections instead of getting paid for your traumas. Get off social media and get your shit together. Most of us root for you till you do dumb shit like call out your more successful friends. Borderline personality disorder sucks but you decided to put it out there so. Time to look into all your binders full of helpful shit and get off Insta.


  10. You knew you were pregnant for like a fucking day! It’s not that tragic! I don’t care if I get hate for this. You didn’t bond with the zygote in 24 hours. You sure like to milk it for the fucking sympathy. We’re over it!


  11. Concentrate on the two kids you have, Who need their mom, get your mental health on track and be a better mother to your two girls.


  12. It’s hard to feel empathy for a person that has used miscarriage in click bait articles so many times. Even her statement on this one is in a click bait. Come on.


  13. I think they just didn’t believe her, she does seem to publicise a lot of miscarriages. Airing out that the other girls did not contact her while she always contacts them is very middle school, and smacks for a desperate need for attention. The sad fact is the other girls-apart from Amber who seems to be regressing back to the womb have moved on and now have busy lives. Cate and Tyler haven’t, they obsess over Carly, they don’t work or study, Cate goes to rehab when things get too rough and they don’t see how unsustainable and sad their situation has become. Makes me like Cheyenne that’ little bit more though-nice women, no drama!


  14. People are actually going to sit through a whole season of her lying about a miscarriage?? For ratings?? This world is a very sick place. Anybody can see this is all fabricated.


  15. She probably didn’t hear from the other girls because they didn’t believe her. She’s clickbaited HOW many ultrasound pictures? Clickbaited that they were ‘giving away Nova,’ amongst other gross and tacky clickbait. She even made her ‘miscarriage’ into a fucking clickbait! Her TM costars probably just rolled their eyes and kept scrolling. Uncle Sam must really be putting the pressure on her and Tyler for his tax money they owe, cause those stories she posts are just embarrassing. It’s to the point where she has the comments shut off on ALL her posts, to where just people she follows can comment. ?


  16. While its sad, I find it hard to believe. Shes got 3 other kids & how far along was she? Did she take an at home test & then miscarry? I could understand if she had already heard the heartbeat, but I have a feeling shes milking it for sympathy & clicks. Come talk to me when you’ve never had a child & lose the only pregnancy you had & can’t get pregnany again.


  17. While I would find it awful that she lost a baby to miscarriage I have a hard time believing her. My sister caked a miscarriage sometime after I had my own and it made me even more disgusted of her than I already was. It is an awful thing to lie about.

    Catelynn does not take care of heraelf properly. The most dangerous one is her mental health. She and tyler are in no position to raise another baby.

    If she truly lost one, my sympathies.


    1. I have always found her miscarriage stories somewhat odd. Both times she miscarried, she found out within the first few weeks of her pregnancy, a very early time, and then a few days later starts bleeding and claims it’s a miscarriage. Did she go to the doctor to confirm she was pregnant or do an ultrasound? False positive pregnancy tests are actually more common than people talk about so I’m thinking she took a teat that came back as a false positive and then got her period a few days later and claims it was a miscarriage


      1. I would be bothered that Amber didn’t reach out especially after she flew out to support Amber when she was being charged with felony assault and child abuse. And wasn’t she the only one who reached out to Mackenzie when her mom died? Idk. I get her sadness over it but I also know since she posts clickbait articles all the time maybe they didn’t pay much attention or believe it. I can see both sides I guess.


  18. Well maybe if she stopped click baiting pregnancy/miscarriage/giving away Nova stories, her cast mates would believe her…


    1. Cate is also a very selfish person. She is always about “me, me, me”. (Tyler’s the same, tbh) Having mental health issues doesn’t help either. And they feel like they are fit to have another baby?! SURE!
