Teen Mom 3 Recap: Season 1 Episode 9 "Don't Lie to Me"
Briana Dejesus: Briana and Brittany are contemplating dating again and considering getting on birth control to protect themselves. They are in the grocery store when they decide to buy condoms, only to find out they are stored behind the sales counter and have to awkwardly ask the sales clerk to get some down for them. Brittany has no problem asking for the condoms, but feels uncomfortable going to the doctor for a Mirena IUD because a pap smear is required. Since she had not taken off her clothes for anyone since her abortion, the visit brought back bad memories and she decided to leave. Briana's mom comes along instead. (Really Briana, you have your own kid and your mother is still spoon-feeding YOU.)
Mackenzie Douthit: Mackenzie's relationship with Josh is falling apart, so her mom decides to call Josh's trainer and see if they can come by to watch Josh train. They discover that Josh had been lying to them about training and when they go over to his house to confront him, Josh tells her that he needs space from their relationship. It's ok if Josh has mixed feelings about Mackenzie, but he needs to have more open communication with her.
Katie: It's Katie's birthday and she and Joey go on a trip to Utah to celebrate. As per usual, they're not getting along and fight the whole drive there and back. They have fun trying on wedding dresses and going skydiving, but the fun is ruined when Joey refused to go visit the college she wants to transfer to. It's clear that they don't want the same things for their future and their relationship is falling apart, so they need to end it for the sake of their daughter growing up in a healthier environment.
Alex Sekella: Alex is very busy these days and on edge, due the stress of school, Arabella, and her 3 jobs, mainly preparing for an upcoming dance competition. When she discovers her costumes are missing, she (understandably) freaks out because she in charge of them and doesn't have the money to replace them. Her mother should have offered to replace them if she threw them away, but the problem gets solved and everyone has fun at the competition.
