Catelynn Lowell's On-Camera Breakdown Is a Major Cry for Help

Poor girl! On Monday night's episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn Lowell had an emotional breakdown, which ultimately led to her decision to spend a month in rehab to deal with her anxiety and depression.

Cate has been dealing with postpartum depression, and it all got to be too much for her on this week's episode. The episode started with her purchasing a mini-pig as a pet for $3,000, but things did not go well, as the little porker ending up squealing all night long.

By the time MTV cameras started rolling again the next morning, Cate had had an epiphany that she's "not okay," and that she needed some help. She said that she'd found a place in Arizona to go deal with her anxiety and depression, as well as kick her pot habit. We know that since this was filmed, Cate has completed in-patient therapy and seems to be doing a thousand times better, but it was heartbreaking to listen to her sob because she felt like she was a failure.

Meanwhile, Amber Portwood was dealing with her own health issues -- except hers were physical instead of mental. She missed out on another visit with her daughter Leah because she was sick and in the hospital, but her fiancé Matt Baier complained to a friend that she seems to be sick a lot.

Later in the episode, Leah told her mom that she thought she "forgot" about her, since she hadn't shown up to pick her up. Totally gut-wrenching! Amber confronted Gary Shirley about it, but he said that he had explained to Leah where Amber was, but it didn't change that the 7-year-old was devastated to not see her mama.

Over in Maci Bookout's neck of the woods, the news that she and Taylor McKinney are expecting a third child seems to have sunken in, and the two were busy making wedding plans. They decided on the fall, since it would be long enough after the new baby's birth, and also before the holidays got underway.

They settled on a gorgeous venue in Florida, and Maci even picked out the wedding dress of her dreams! We didn't get to see more than a glimpse of the bodice, since she knew it would air before the big day, and she didn't want to ruin the surprise for Taylor, but she seemed totally happy wearing it. We can't wait to see the whole thing!

And of course no episode of Teen Mom OG would be complete without some Farrah Abraham drama. After flipping out at Simon for walking on her carpet and not paying enough attention to her during an Easter egg hunt, she threw him out of the house.

Which may seem like a bit of an overreaction, but these two have had a pretty dysfunctional relationship, and he's been pretty openly rude to her. When she tried to confront him about his lack of interest in her life, desires, and house rules, he completely ignored her. So, yeah. Even if Farrah is a little uptight about some things, that's who she is, and if he doesn't like it, he can leave.

And hopefully getting rid of Simon means less stress for this mama, because at one point during the episode, she said her daughter Sophia was "stupid" for not wanting to get dressed and go to one of her mom's events. Thankfully it didn't happen in front of Soph, but that crap is on camera for her to see eventually. No bueno, Farrah. No bueno.
