‘Teen Mom’ News Pile: Tyler Baltierra & Catelynn Lowell Still Owe A Ton of Money to the IRS; Farrah Abraham (Probably) Creeps Out Her Daughter’s Teen Boyfriend & More

“There are only two things that never go away in this world: taxes and the ‘Teen Mom’ shows…”

From having a lot of debt to having the ability to tell the ‘Teen Mom’ producers to screw off, the stars of the Teen Mom franchise (both past and present) have been keeping themselves busy lately! In an effort to keep you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 news, The Ashley brings you the Teen Mom News Pile.

Here are some of the major (and minor but interesting) ‘Teen Mom’- related things that have happened over the last week or so…

Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra still owe a ton of money to the IRS, despite making a large payment.

“Maybe we wouldn’t be in this mess if SOMEBODY hadn’t wasted a ton of money on therapy pigs, Manic Panic hair dye and unused scrapbooking items!”

Catelynn and Tyler are still buried in tax debt, despite having made a jumbo-sized payment last year. This week, The Sun reported that the ‘Teen Mom OG’ couple still owes over $321,000 to the federal government. While this number may seem higher than Butch at a Willie Nelson concert, it’s actually much less than the original amount the couple owed, which totaled over $856,800!

As The Ashley previously reported in 2020, Cate and Ty were hit with the first of two federal tax liens in November 2019 (for the tax years 2016 and 2017) in the amount of $535,010.97. The pair received the second federal tax lien the following month (for the tax year of 2018) in the amount of $321,789.06. In 2021, Cate and Ty were hit with even more debt, with almost $7,000 in property taxes for the two Michigan homes they own being added to their tax bill.

The Sun reports that, last year, the ‘Teen Mom OG’ stars paid off the $535,000 they owed for their 2016 and 2017 tax liens. However, they still owe $321,789 for their 2018 federal taxes. 

“How much do you think we could get for this here candelabra?”

Cate and Ty have several income streams at the moment. Catelynn is (or at least was) working as a microblader at a Michigan beauty bar, and is profiting from her weird online “magazine.” And, of course, Catelynn is raking in a pretty penny by constantly posting odd (and oftentimes downright offensive) clickbait to her social media accounts.

“Um…hello! You forgot to mention my Tierra Reign children’s clothing empire!”

The couple is also starring on the upcoming show Teen Mom: The Next Chapter. However, as The Ashley previously reported, the cast of the new show will be getting a pay cut.

“The cast only gets paid for the episodes they’re in,” a production source told The Ashley in May. “If their voice or image doesn’t appear in the episode, they are not paid, so with each episode only featuring select girls, this will be a real hack in their paycheck, especially to the girls who don’t really show much while filming.”

Mackenzie Edwards says MTV tried to get her husband Ryan to appear on another ‘Teen Mom’ show.

“We’re sure you’ll be able to come up with plenty of fascinating Maci storylines without us though….”

Last week, The Ashley gave you all the details on the upcoming second season of ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion,’ which is set to beginning filming within the next month. The Ashley stated that producers have been reaching out to ‘Teen Mom’ cast members — both past and present— to find people who are willing to film for the show. After The Ashley posted this story, Mackenzie Edwards came forward on Instagram Live to let fans know that MTV was trying to get her husband, Ryan, to appear on the show.

(As fans know, Ryan and his whole family including Mackenzie and his parents Jen and Larry Edwards, were fired from ‘Teen Mom OG’ in March 2021. The Ashley broke the news that it was Ryan’s baby mama, Maci Bookout, who was behind the Edwards’ firings.) 

According to Mackenzie, the producers came crawling back in hopes that Ryan would sign on for ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ Season 2. She stated that the producer (The Ashley hears it was Larry Musnik) apologized for how Ryan & Co.’s firings went down last year.

“But I reckon MTV’s willin’ to risk it if it means they don’t have to listen to Maci ramble on about the PCO and S.”

“They did their little spiel like, ‘Sorry, so sorry that things went down the way that it did. Your story was left untold and [the viewers] don’t get to see the other side,'” Mackenzie said. “Ryan heard him out for a second and basically told him, ‘I don’t want anything of what you are selling. I don’t have time for that, sorry.'”

During the Live, Mack stated that she and Ryan both work regular 9-to-5 jobs now and that their employers would fire them if they started filming for MTV again. However, according to Mackenzie, she and Ryan have no interest in filming again anyway.

“It feels so good to be able to stand up to a network like that and say, ‘Go screw yourself. Leave me out of it.’ Because at this point, what good would that do for anybody? We both work.” 

“Just sign on to the show so I’ll have someone to bitch about to the counselor lady.”

As The Ashley previously reported, producers also reached out to  former ‘Teen Mom 2’ stars Chelsea Houska and Kail Lowry in hopes that they would appear on ‘Family Reunion’ Season 2. Both girls declined the offer, though.

Farrah Abraham starts a book club for teen boys who want to date her daughter Sophia & slurs her way through her reading recommendations. 

“Farrah knows best!”

Farrah Abraham continues to tout the “life- changing” experience she had while working the 12- step program during a 28-day trip to a trauma treatment facility. So much, in fact, that she’s now pushing her beliefs on emo teens.

The fired ‘Teen Mom’ took to social media recently to reveal a “gift” she’s put together for the boyfriend of her 13-year-old daughter, Sophia. (Yes, guys, we’ve officially reached the  point where the kids we saw birthed on the ‘Teen Mom’ shows officially have love lives of their own. BRB…gonna go load up my pockets with Werther’s Originals candies and cry about how old I feel.)

In the video, Farrah recommends other parents force their daughters’ boyfriends to read weird self-help books, in between mumbling through the list of reading material. 

“If you’re going to date my daughter, you’re getting some 12 step books,” Farrah says in the video. “I would highly recommend getting your daughter’s boyfriends King Baby, The Twelve Steps and Shame, and Emmet Fox[’s] The Sermon on the Mount: The Keys to Success in Life.

“Only the best and hopefully that boyfriend turns out ok,” she continued. “Oh yeah, and I threw in some snacks. Enjoy.”

After being reposted on Reddit, Farrah’s Book Club video was met with comments from people questioning the Backdoor Teen Mom’s sobriety, not so much for the content of the video–- or the mini muffin cameo-– but for Farrah’s slurred speech while rattling off the list of self-help books she purchased for Sophia’s boyfriend.

“That’s definitely an opioid voice talking right there,” one person commented. 

“Lol she’s drinking or on pills for sure,” another wrote.

While the idea of giving your child’s boyfriend or girlfriend self-help books that were written for adults is weird enough, it’s not nearly as crazy as what Farrah requires her own partners to do before making things official: Farrah revealed in June that if you want to date her, you must undergo significant scientific testing. 

Sophia recently gave her TikTok followers a glimpse of the “boyfriend” that Farrah is talking about in her video. In a recent TikTok, Sophia and a guy (who, thankfully, appears to be about her age) go to Build a Bear, where the guy buys her a stuffed animal.

@sophialabraham he got me a build a bear plushie ❤️❤️❤️ #teen #buildabear #2022 #summervibes #summer2022 #bestsummer #funtime #funny #foryou #foryoupage #bestsummerever ♬ Radio – Lana Del Rey

Kayla Jones announces her baby’s unique name.

“The bar for ‘Teen Mom’ baby names is basically hell so…”

The ‘Teen Mom’ franchise is full of ‘interesting’ baby names– from the unspellable Aliannah to the name monstrosity that is Hazlee Beaver–and former ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’ star Kayla Jones (aka Kayla J) is adding to that list!

Kayla J– who was not invited to be a full-time cast member for the currently airing season of the show– gave birth to her second child seven weeks ago and this week, she announced the baby girl’s unique moniker on Instagram. (Kayla is already the mother of a three-year-old daughter named Mecca.) 

She revealed that her newest baby has been named Palar Noelle.

“These 7 weeks have flown by but the most precious 7 weeks ever,” Kayla wrote on Instagram.  

While the name “Pillar” is quite popular in some parts of the world, Palar seems to be rarely, if ever, used. (Kayla may have made it up, in all fairness.) It is the name of a river in India, and according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary means, “relating to, or resembling a stake.” 

“I guess that means my kid’s name means, ‘relating to resembling a hazzel!”

Several of Kayla’s former ‘Young & Pregnant’ co-stars left comments on Kayla’s post about the baby’s name.
“I loooveeee her name!!! she’s so beautiful,’ wrote Madisen Paige (who basically beat out Kayla for the fifth spot on the show this season.)
“Precious,” wrote Jaime Szot, the mother of Kayla Sessler.

  1. I bet Carly’s parents who adopted her 100% regret ever having a “open adoption” with Catylenn and Tyler.

  2. Farrah likely can’t speak properly anymore due to all her cosmetic work. As for Cate and Ty, seems like they can never do the sensible thing and that’s why they can’t afford to pay their debts and beg for money from others. Trash. Gotta say the nasty behavior they’ve been showing on social media, I feel bad for Carly. They’re obv not thinking about how they act may affect her being bullied and teased on social media by people who may have figured out she’s their kid.

  3. Is it possible Farrah isn’t on anything but she’s officially gone too far with lip fillers and just can’t open her mouth to speak? She was friends with Frenchie from rock of love so I bet that’s her next look

    1. At least we are not watching her anymore! She’s more like a person who is like every now and then “LOOK PEOPLE, I STILL EXIST!” She will come back to media in a few months. Maybe even expecting #3 with Ryan.

  4. I’m surprised Farrah hasn’t started filming herself sleeping with random hawt homeless dudes yet. She has no clue what she’s doing to her kid. I was gonna say poor kid but Sophia is a nightmare.

  5. Palar Noelle is actually not that bad. I would’ve gone with the traditional spelling of Pilar but it’s not my baby. It’s kinda cute.

    It’s no Broncs, Jaxie, Lux, or Kaiser. THOSE are godawful names.

    Lux is a soap for god sakes. And every time I hear the word Kaiser I think of H1tler. Which makes sense for Janelle I guess.

    Palar Noelle tho? Kinda cute. The baby is adorable too. Let’s all admit this could be way worse.

  6. Chelsea’s baby names are the worst.. Watson? Walker? Idk the other one but I’m sure it’s dumb too. Farrah is mentally ill

  7. oh god how did i not think farrah would be creepy & annoying to any future boyfriends sophia would bring home! ??‍♀️
    palar noelle is actually a beautiful name! at least it’s a name that the baby can grow in and not a stupid childish name like novalee, star star, or hazelee

  8. Getting normal jobs might have been the smartest thing Makenzie & Ryan have ever done. I don’t know if anything Makenzie ever says is true, but if it is, good for them. The large paychecks enabled Ryan’s addiction. I wouldn’t think the constant criticism, due to being a public figure, would be helpful either. A more quiet life with responsibilities might actually be helpful for Ryan.

    1. Yeah, I was shocked when I read that they both work 9-5 jobs which is indeed a good thing. The MTV TM money seems to stunt the growth for almost all of the parents – maybe Ryan wouldn’t have been such a sloth for so many years if he didn’t have the easy money.

  9. So thats why Cate was begging online for cheerleading donations?

    I’m sure MTV asked everyone who ever appeared to guest on that stupid reunion.
    Good luck though.

    Farrah went to rehab for drugs and alcohol and still uses? Sophia better take a different path bc the one mom is on is a dead end.

    1. I could have sworn Farrah said she went to a rehab/12 step for “trauma”. She’s NEVER admitted to drinking too much or doing any drugs. Honestly I think it was a 12 step program for alcohol, because it was around this time she assaulted the security guard.

      Lawyers will advise this before seeing a judge, so it looks like you’re trying to take some accountability and maybe get less time or a lesser charge. With Farrah, she never planned to change her behavior so she just uses the techniques taught as excuses. Something is very wrong with Farrah and it isn’t just whatever substances she might be putting in her body.
