The original “Teen Moms” are back. Two years after the last episode of MTV’s hit docuseries aired, stars Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell premiered the first trailer for Season 5 on the network’s “Ask The Moms” special, which you can watch here, Monday night. While viewers will have to wait until 2015 to catch up with the moms, the trailer did give some insight into what the trio and their kids have been up in recent years.
When we last saw Bookout, she was living with her boyfriend Kyle King. Now, just two years later, her son Bentley, 5, is headed off to kindergarten and she has a new man in her life. “My boyfriend moved here. We were doing long distance but now he’s officially a Tennessee resident,” Maci tells her radio show co-workers in the sneak peek.
Her new boyfriend and rumored future fiancé, 25-year-old motocross racer Taylor McKinney, is later seen in the trailer expressing his worry over cohabitating with the “Teen Mom” star. “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit [scared],” he said.
Maci isn’t the only one moving in with a partner. Bentley’s dad, Ryan Edwards, also appears to be making the same move with his unnamed significant other. While Maci doesn’t comment on Ryan’s new leading lady in the trailer, she does share her upset over his alleged lack of parenting skills. “I don’t see Ryan as the other parent,” Maci tells a pal. “I see [Ryan’s parents] as the other parent and I don’t want that to happen.”
Unfortunately for the formerly incarcerated Amber Portwood, her daughter Leah’s father, Gary Edwards, has also moved on. “You know, I care about Amber. She’s someone whose going to be in my life forever. But I have more hope with Christina then I ever did with Amber,” Gary says to a pal.
Gary’s new girlfriend appears to be a point of contention with Amber, 24, who lashes out at her mother during a nail salon visit after she brings up the topic of Gary. “How about we’re done talking about Gary? We’re done talking about it or I will freak out. I’m done!” she says.
Amber’s 17-month prison sentence in 2012 also appears to have had a toll on the “Teen Mom” star. “I don’t think you understand how amazing this is for me without bars in front of my freakin’ face!” she says.
While the other “Teen Mom” stars have romance on the brain, Catelynn Lowell, 22, and her fiancé Tyler Baltierra are all about their new baby girl. Almost five years after the couple gave up their daughter Carly for adoption on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant,” the duo are expecting another child together in the spring. “We’re having a baby!” Tyler says in the trailer while proudly showing off Catelynn’s positive pregnancy test.
Despite their shared excitement, the couple appears to be at odds on finalizing their wedding plans. “I wouldn’t mind being married before the baby comes. You could go to the courthouse and marry me,” Catelynn says. “I’m not doing that. That’s not what I want to do,” Tyler replies.
Farrah Abraham, a fellow member of the original “Teen Mom” cast, will not be returning for Season 6. Maci explained the casting shakeup on “Ask The Moms," a reunion special with the “Teen Mom” and “Teen Mom 2” cast, on Monday.
"After we stopped filming 'Teen Mom,' we all went in our own directions -- kind of started our lives without cameras -- and Farrah made some choices that didn’t really match with what the show was about,” Maci said according to a report from WetPaint.com. “If one of us is not making decisions that goes with our message, then it kind of takes away from what we’re trying to do in the first place. So, it wasn’t our choice to not have her on the show with us, but we wish her the best."
