'Teen Mom' Catelynn Lowell's Bong Photo Ruins Her 'Good Girl' Image

Catelynn LowellIt's a sad day for fans of Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. The two are usually considered the most responsible, most likely to succeed break-outs of MTV's reality drama. But a new photo showing Lowell taking hits from a bong may ruin that "clean" image forever.

Of all the people on the show, Lowell is perhaps the one who least needs to be dabbling in drugs. Sure, it's normal for teens and people in their early 20s who don't have children living in their homes to experiment with different ways of having fun. But Lowell is the daughter of an addict and the stepdaughter of a man who famously texted his son that he loved cocaine more than him. In other words, she should be steering clear. Sure, it could be salvia and NOT marijuana, but who REALLY believes that?

I am not one to judge drug use. But this is disappointing.

Part of Catelynn's appeal is her ability to rise above her circumstances, which, admittedly, were pretty awful. Her mother and stepfather are alleged to have an abusive relationship. Both are also admitted addicts. She was pregnant as a teen and has lived apart from her biological father for most of her childhood. Her mother wasn't always the most supportive woman. It's a recipe for one screwed up adult. But Catelynn has always seemed to rise above. But now this?

More from The Stir: Catelynn & Tyler Come Clean About Their Pasts

Marijuana isn't the scourge many would have us believe. In the right time and place, it can be perfectly fine. I would be a complete hypocrite if I came down on someone in their early 20s who smoked a little. Lord knows I went to college and lived in the dorms. I have no room to judge.

But it's sad because it's Catelynn. It's sad because she IS such a role model in so many ways, whether she likes it or not. She has also set herself up as a role model. She WANTS to be that for many people; otherwise, why say she wants to go into adoption counseling?

Even more, I wonder if she would be jeopardizing her future with Tyler through this experimentation. He is pretty anti-drug use on the show. If he also is off-camera, I imagine he is none too pleased. There was a time when he seemed very concerned she might not finish school. My guess is he wants to be with someone just as ambitious and goal-oriented as he is.

So what now? Is this Catelynn's turn to go all Amber and Jenelle? Or will she turn this around? Only time will tell.

Do you find this disappointing?

"I would be a complete hypocrite if I came down on someone in their early 20s who smoked a little"..... so then you are a complete hypocrite because the entire article is you "coming down" in her for smoking.  Typical Stir article.

She is in her 20s. This is what people do in their 20s. Give it a rest. Yes she has addict parents but it's pot not crack.

Geez, Sasha...Catelynn is HUMAN, a mere mortal. Frankly, with the circumstances she grew up around she is LUCKY that is all she may have done. Her life COULD have been so much worse but it's NOT. She is still an inspiration and should not be berated for something SO STUPID. I pity your daughter, Sasha, whenever she screws up. High standards are fine but double standards are certainly NOT.

Seriously? Dude, I cannot think of one person that I know that hasn't smoked weed at least once in their life. It really isn't a big deal like everyone makes it out to be. I personally don't smoke anymore but I know a lot of successful people that continue to smoke weed.

Everybody makes mistakes, especially adolescents. i hope and pray that she will not travel down the road of so many who made their mistakes their down fall. And by the way, you can become addicted to WEED..... Ask so many who claim they hv to hv it in order to wake up and get their non productive day started. They call em WEED HEADS.
