Catelynn and Mackenzie had “never had a chance to talk and get to know each other,” but the Teen Mom OG cast members finally got the chance during tonight’s brand new episode.
Catelynn and Tyler were visiting her grandparents in Sarasota, Florida, so she decided to call Mackenzie to possibly meet up for a meal. Mackenzie – who had moved from Oklahoma six months earlier – agreed to the suggestion and later told Josh of their plans.
“They’re the only couple I know in the… teen mom franchise that’s been together since they were 16,” stated the mother of three (Mackenzie is right – the couples share this common ground). “I don’t even know how you and I have…” she continued, with Josh falling in. with “I don’t know.”
When the foursome got together, they quickly exchanged updates on Cate’s pregnancy, Tyler starting ketamine therapy, and Mackenzie and Josh’s family moving to the Sunshine State. Then they bonded over their shared experience of being high school sweethearts.
“You grow up together. There are things you grow, and you change,” Cate explained. “Of course you have bumpy roads and junk that you go through.”
Mackenzie agreed – pointing out that “two individuals working on themselves can make a huge difference.”
“Self-care is super important,” Tyler added. “It makes you a better parent. People confuse it with being selfish. It’s not selfish.’
