Back in March, Catelynn Lowell checked into rehab to be treated for depression and anxiety.
In a recent interview, Lowell stated that she's "not cured" but is doing better emotionally following extensive in-patient treatment.
Catelynn's relationship with husband Tyler Baltierra is generally considered to be one of the most stable in the Teen Mom franchise, and Baltierra supported and visited his wife during her stay in an Airzona facility.
So it came as a shock to many TM fans when a clip for the show's upcoming season showed Baltierra giving Lowell a hard time about what she's eating for dinner.
The clip shows Lowell revealing to Baltierra that she'd like to join Weight Watchers again.
Tyler is encouraging at first, but the conversation quickly turns casually ugly, as he ridicules her for the size of the meal she's eating.
“That’s a big ass quesadilla, it has a lot of chicken,” Baltierra says.
“It’s your body, you could do what you want. Obviously I don’t want no heifer for a wife!”
The conversation gets so nasty so fast that one of the show's producers intervenes on Catelynn's behalf.
“You come off so harsh sometimes,” she says.
Baltierra, apparently oblivious to the seriousness of the situation, “I’m being honest! Would you want to be married to some big heifer?”
Baltierra and Lowell married in August of 2015, and have been the subject of many a #RelationshipGoals hashtag in the year since.
They both survived difficult childhoods and the trauma of giving their first child for adoption, all the while serving as pillars of strength and support for one another.
So hopefully this was anomalous behavior for Baltierra and not something he'll be making a habit of now that the honeymoon phase is over.
