'Teen Mom 3' Recap: Katie Drops a Bomb on Joey

Stuck in Reality 17

Teen Mom Katie YeagerWhat is up with the dads on Teen Mom 3? Did they decide to trade bodies for the 10th episode of the season or something? Matt McCann came off as the caring dad who's just trying to get clean for his daughter, Josh McKee came off as a jerk for standing up Mackenzie Douthit, and Joey Maes came off as a victim? What in the world is happening?

Let's start with Joey because he has become something of a TV villain this season, freaking out on girlfriend Katie Yeager, tearing their apartment apart, and putting her down every chance he can get. Tonight the two were fighting -- as usual -- but angry Katie went a little too far.

She called Joey a "deadbeat baby daddy." Come on now, is that really fair?

Credit to Joey, he admitted right away that he's not a good boyfriend, but he said he's a good dad, and I don't blame him for being mad. He might be a jerk, but every day he gets up and goes to the work as a coal miner -- not the easiest job in the world -- to provide for his daughter. That's NOT a deadbeat dad.

It looks like these two are broken up now, and we can only hope it's for good. Neither one seems to be good for the other.

The other Teen Mom 3 star going through a rough patch tonight was Mackenzie. Since finding out Josh was lying to her, she hasn't seen much of him, but that doesn't stop her from running when he calls for her to swing by to pick up her saddle from his house.

It's sad to see her sitting alone on his porch with little Gannon, trying to figure out why she's been stood up by a guy who doesn't even have the guts to show up to actually give her her stuff back!

With all that doom and gloom, it was nice to see some happy moments for Alex Sekella tonight. Matt McCann seems to really be working at doing things right in rehab, and she's even seeing a new guy who has no problem with little Arabella tagging along.

As for Briana, turning 18 was a mixed bag. She didn't have any fun out at a nightclub with her friends, but she did survive her first big night out away from Nova since the little girl was born.

What did you think of Katie's attack on Joey? Is she really being fair to him?
