#TheStruggleisReal this week for the ladies of Teen Mom OG, whether they're struggling with their weight, their mothers, or their sometimes stupid baby daddies. Read on for our photo recap of TMOG's second-to-last episode and the major issues the young moms are facing.
Firstly, Catelynn Lowell is having a major battle with her body right about now. Cate tells Tyler that she's lost 20 lbs in the two months since she gave birth to Nova, but wants to lose a total of 40 before their wedding. She gets a major reality check when she goes to try on her wedding dress and finds out that she needs to get it made four sizes bigger in order to fit over her boobs and butt. Cate reveals that after pregnancy, her bra size went from a 36C to a DDD!
Once Tyler finds out that the dress appointment didn't go quite as planned, he offers his support and tells her that she should join a gym and start eating more healthy foods. Catelynn takes it the wrong way but Tyler says he's only trying to be supportive, and offers to help her along her weight loss journey.
Maci Bookout, meanwhile, is dealing with an immature baby daddy. When she and Bentley's dad Ryan meet in person to discuss their car accidents and Benny's safety—they each were involved in a dangerous crash, though luckily noone was badly hurt—Maci finds out that Ryan is an irresponsible driver and doesn't even make Bentley buckle up in a car seat!
Maci of course voices these issues to her boyfriend, Taylor as well as to her friends, saying, "I don’t want Bentley around Ryan if noone else is around. I’m done dealing with him. I can’t fix him." We have a feeling Jen and Larry are going to be getting a phone call next week...

Meanwhile, Amber Portwood and Matt go to Las Vegas to celebrate her being off parole. But a night of drinking gets a little bit out of hand for the former addicts, and Matt yells at Amber for being "different" around the cameras, although she insists it's just her social anxiety. And BTW, don't be concerned that they're both drinking. Amber clarifies that she has a drink every now and then since it was pills and not alcohol that she had problems with.
Anyway, later that night after the camera crew wraps, Amber calls them back when Matt punches a wall in the hotel out of anger. He admits that he drank way too much and that things got out of hand, but by the time they get back to Indiana they've worked out their issues and even share a smooch. "Are you sure?" Amber asks about their plans to get married. Matt replies, "That I want to marry you? A hundred percent." We wonder if the psychic they visited during their Vegas trip had anything to do with that decision...
And Farrah Abraham learns the hard way this week that mixing family with business isn't always ideal. When Farrah's mom Debra wants to partner up on her new line of tomato sauce, Farrah has her doubts because of the complicated relationship the mother/daughter duo has. Besides, even though Debra is doing most of the work and has already hired a lawyer, Farrah thinks that Debra is just using her for her money.
But leave it to Michael to tell it like it is! During a family birthday dinner for Farrah's dad, Michael says to Farrah that if she "doesn't feel comfortable working with your mom on a project, you don't have to." Debra of course gets insulted, but come on, guys—clearly this kind of argument is nothing new for Farrah and Debra.
