A lot can change in a person’s life from the time they’re a teenager to a twentysomething, and we’ve seen pronounced proof of this by following the stories of MTV’s teen moms. But while we’re very much up to date on what’s going on with Leah Calvert, Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin and Chelsea Houska of “Teen Mom 2,” the fifth season of which is currently running on the channel, it’s been a year-and-a-half since the series finale of the original “Teen Mom” aired, and the little we hear is usually based on gossip.
Beginning at 8/7c on Sunday, February 23, MTV will premiere a trio of one-hour documentary specials that give viewers a chance to catch up with Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Farrah Abraham. “Being Amber,” “Being Catelynn” and “Being Farrah” will offer a glimpse into all three young ladies’ worlds as they struggle with new responsibilities: Amber is just out of jail and trying to reconnect with her daughter, Leah, while staying with her grandparents in Indiana; Catelynn is coping with a cancelled engagement to longtime boyfriend Tyler; and Farrah, who’s now 22 and living thousands of miles away from her mother, is dealing with her controversial choice to make an adult entertainment film. In a nutshell, things are different, but still…complicated.
“Being Farrah” airs at 8/7c on Sunday, February 23, followed by “Being Catelynn” at 9/8c and “Being Amber” at 10/9c. Stay tuned to the blog for more info, including a sneak peek.
