Catelynn Lowell doesn’t appear to be too upset about Farrah Abraham’s return to Teen Mom. Although Abraham’s co-stars seemed a bit peeved when producers told them she would be back, Lowell claims she and her fiancé, Tyler Baltierra, were prepared for the news.
In a March 2 interview with Cosmopolitan Magazine, Catelynn Lowell, who will wed Baltierra on August 22, recounted the moment she discovered that Abraham would be back.
“The whole thing is — we had a feeling that Farrah was going to come back, and me and [my fianceé] Tyler weren’t really all that affected by it. As long as she’s doing what she needs to do, we’re going to do what we want to do. She has her life, we have our own life — it doesn’t matter. Bring it on.”
For months leading up to MTV’s decision to bring Abraham back to the show, along with her co-stars, Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, there had been reports about her return. However, since Abraham denied any plans for a return, they were quickly shot down.
Then, at the end of January, Us Weekly confirmed Abraham would be joining Catelynn Lowell on the new season.
At the time, creator Lauren Dolgen revealed Abraham’s co-stars, Catelynn Lowell included, hadn’t responded well to the news. According to Dolgen, the cast change led to a “bit of controversy” during production, which fans will get to see play out on the new season.
In one scene of the trailer, as reported by the Inquisitr, Catelynn Lowell was seen reacting to Abraham’s return with her fiancé. In another, Bookout found out about Abraham’s return — and immediately said it was “over” and told producers to leave.
So, did she quit? Catelynn Lowell couldn’t say for sure.
“I can’t speak for them, but they were worried about Farrah and her business endeavors.”
Catelynn Lowell said that while others may judge Abraham, she and her fiancé are more understanding, and choose to instead focus on her strengths.
“I always tell people, Farrah’s a great mom. She looks out for Sophia, and she’s determined and motivated by things that she wants to do, and that’s something that she can teach people: You can do things that you want to do no matter what’s standing in front of you.”
