She's ready to get back to work! Catelynn Lowell is currently in rehab for mental health issues, and it seemed like the Teen Mom OG star might not have been able to attend the upcoming reunion special taping since Catelynn's treatment is expected to end at the end of February and it would be too soon for her to jump in front of cameras. But now, the reality star is cleared by her team and she will definitely be at the reunion taping next weekend.
"Catelynn’s treatment team has given her permission for her to travel to New York City for the Teen Mom reunion to be filmed in New York City on March 3 and March 4," a source revealed to Us Weekly.
It seems like Catelynn was enrolled in a 30-day rehab program because there was a 35-day hiatus in between her last tweet and her most recent tweet and on Feb. 21, she hinted that she'll be leaving her program soon. "Cannot wait to see my family soon!!!! @TylerBaltierra ❤️❤️," she wrote.
It's nice to see that Catelynn is strong enough to go straight back to work after her third rehab stint, especially since it's a reunion special which is very different from filming their scenes at home. During the special, the cast members are subjected to tough questions from host Dr. Drew Pinsky and Catelynn wasn't sure if she should put herself through that right after leaving treatment. "The reunions are always extremely emotional and grueling," an insider told Us Weekly.
But now that Cate is going, it's safe to say that her hubby Tyler Baltierra will be there right by her side even though he doesn't really want to put himself through the emotionally difficult experience.
"It’s up to Catelynn, but he personally doesn’t want to go," a source revealed to Radar. "Reunions can be a s--t show. If they go to the reunion, they’ll be forced to talk about the pregnancy and if she miscarried. It’s understandable Tyler wants to pass on it."
Catelynn, 25, returned to rehab for the second time after admitting to suicidal thoughts last November. "Well today I thought of every way to kill myself...so I'm going to treatment," she wrote on Twitter at the time. She returned to her husband and daughter Nova at the end of December only to go back three weeks later.
“Well, they say third times a charm…I’m going back to treatment people for 6 weeks to work on my trauma and getting on different meds," she tweeted. "THANK YOU @TylerBaltierra I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! You are my light!! And Nova you are my sunshine #KeepTalkingMH."
While she was away, her husband Tyler has also been focusing on himself and recently showed off his 26-pound weight loss on social media. "To be honest, I didn’t even want to take a before picture because I was already thinking of me not sticking with it and then having the evidence of failure to look back on," he captioned a before-and-after photo. "But DAYYUMM dude! This got me feeling some type of way right now! Left picture was almost 5 weeks ago a right picture was today. Eating healthier just feels better and obviously looks better hahaha lol BOOM!" He also visited Catelynn in rehab soon for the center's family week.
