Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were dealt with major heartbreak during filming on the seventh season of Teen Mom OG, but they may not be seen discussing the events of the season during the upcoming reunion.
According to a new report, both Lowell and Baltierra may be absent during the upcoming taping in New York City after facing a miscarriage at the end of last year, and dealing with Lowell's suicidal thoughts and depression in the months that followed.
“Tyler doesn’t know if they’ll be attending the reunion,” a source close to the couple told Radar Online on Feb. 14. “It’s up to Catelynn, but he personally doesn’t want to go.”
As viewers of Teen Mom OG well now, reunion host Dr. Drew Pinsky “brings up a lot of personal issues" and forces cast members to face their good and bad times. The Radar Online insider also said that if Lowell and Baltierra chose to attend the upcoming taping of the season seven reunion, they will have to talk about the pregnancy they revealed during the show and Lowell's assumed miscarriage that followed.
Radar Online revealed that the Teen Mom OG season seven reunion is set to be filmed in the Big Apple on March 3 and March 4, and will include Lowell and Baltierra's costars including Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, who have long been supportive of Lowell and her struggles.
Lowell entered rehab in November after telling her fans on Twitter about her struggles with suicidal thoughts. Since then, the reality star has been in and out of an Arizona treatment facility where she's addressing struggles with anxiety and depression. Most recently, Lowell returned to rehab last month after feeling her treatment wasn't yet complete.
“Last time was too close of a call,” a source previously told Radar. “It’s going to take more than a few weeks of therapy to help her recover. He said she’s afraid that things like this will always occur.”
Earlier this week, a source told Us Weekly that the reunion specials of Teen Mom OG are “always extremely emotional and grueling” and added that attending the taping may not be the best thing for Lowell's mental health.
Lowell and Baltierra can be seen on Monday nights in Teen Mom OG season seven.
