Amber Portwood Discovers a Disturbing Secret About Fiancé Matt Baier's Past

Holy moly, talk about drama on Monday night's episode of Teen Mom OG. More than one person headed off to therapy to deal with some family issues, and one of the ladies got some shocking information about her partner that could change everything.


First up, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were dealing with the doldrums in the aftermath of their fairy-tale wedding. Family has been putting pressure on Tyler to either go back to school or decide on a career path, while Cate has been just trying to survive mothering baby Nova.

After Ty's mom mentioned to him that Cate might be suffering from postpartum depression, he asked her to come to therapy with him. Of course we know now that she really was suffering from PPD, but it was interesting to hear her adamantly deny that she had a problem that she needed help for. At one point, she even told her new husband, "I would know [if I had PPD] ... and I'm on antidepressants."

Meanwhile, Farrah Abraham also found herself in therapy, over her control issues with her parents, Michael and Debra. She's gone back and forth over who she wanted to babysit Sophia while she's on a month-long business trip in the UK, convinced that they were going to team up behind her back or something. Her therapist gave her some great advice about maybe giving up a little bit of control, and trusting that both of her parents could work together to care for their granddaughter, and all was well in Abraham household. At least for this week.

In another we-weren't-expecting-them-to-get-along moment, Maci Bookout and her ex Ryan Edwards actually had a really positive time together at their son Bentley's seventh birthday party. Ryan even took Bentley home with him and took him to school the next day. What is happening here? Good things that stay, we hope.

But the real drama came from Amber Portwood's corner of the episode. She's been with fiancé Matt Baier for about a year, after being friends for six months through Twitter. Early on in the episode, she mentioned Matt's two children, whom she had met.

But her ex-fiancé and baby daddy Gary Shirley was hard at work digging up dirt on Matt, and found out that he allegedly has seven children, with five open court cases regarding child support! Rather than come to Amber privately with the information, he waited until the MTV cameras were present to drop the bomb on her.

Amber was NOT pleased, to say the least. When the couple got home from dropping Leah off the confrontation, producer Heather attempted to ask Matt what was going on, and he told her to get the film crew out of there and not come back.

They stuck around, and later that night, Amber cried to the cameras that she didn't know what was true anymore, and that she's had too much to deal with between prison, conquering addiction, a custody battle, and now this information that could blow her life apart if it's true. Matt denied it the whole time, but something fishy is definitely going on.

One thing is certain though -- we can't wait for the reunion show with Dr. Drew.
