Fans are LIVID!
When Catelynn Lowell’s third pregnancy was announced on Teen Mom, some fans weren’t particularly excited. It’s not that they weren’t over the moon at the thought of the Baltierras having a second child, but recent rumors suggested the pregnancy would not end well. Only a few episodes later, what viewers were dreading was confirmed on national television: Catelynn Lowell had suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.
With her miscarriage in mind, all of Catelynn’s recent mental health problems come a bit more into focus. Catelynn has been in and out of treatment as she shares with fans that she has suffered from severe suicidal thoughts. It obviously hasn’t been easy for her, but the love from her fans, family, and fellow castmates has been overpowering.
That is, except for one cast mate. Sometimes it seems that Teen Mom rumors can’t sink any lower, but this cast member apparently wanted to make things even worse. It seems he just insinuated that it’s Catelynn’s own fault she suffered this devastating loss.
It wasn’t until the last episode of Teen Mom OG that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra confirmed they had suffered a miscarriage. In a harrowing, difficult-to-watch scene, Tyler broke down when he told producer Kerthy about the experience.
“It was very traumatic,” Tyler recalled, clearly shaken and verging on tears. “You see her shaking and she got blood everywhere, you don’t know what to do.”
After Catelynn stopped losing blood, it became clear what had happened. “She kind of cleaned herself up and we figured what was going on.” Then, the couple shut down. “We sat in the bed and cried. Just held each other. There’s nothing you can really do,” he said.
Later in the episode, Catelynn leaves for treatment after suffering from suicidal thoughts. “I thought of every way to kill myself,” she confessed on air and via Twitter.
This is clearly a time that Catelynn and Tyler need support from everyone in their lives. But there’s one person in particular who seems to only wish to make matters worse.
“Ladies do not chain smoke while you are pregnant,” Farrah Abraham’s former boyfriend Simon Saran tweeted after the episode aired. He seemed to be referring to the fact that Catelynn was shown smoking a cigarette in the episode. “Unfortunate mishaps can happen. These can be prevented with simple steps and a good support system. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!”
Obviously, Simon never comes out to state he believes Catelynn caused her miscarriage, but the implication is clear. Considering that there’s no evidence Catelynn was smoking during her pregnancy, not only are these claims unfounded, but they’re sickening to many fans.
