Catelynn Baltierra spilled all the details on what really happened when Matt Baier offered her Xanax on Teen Mom OG.
The 25-year-old MTV star sat down with Dr. Drew Pinksy for the second part of the show’s reunion on Monday. She said Baier offered her the Xanax after she mentioned she was having a panic attack while they were doing press in New York City.
“I know the trigger,” she said. “It was Nova’s first day of preschool and I wasn’t there with her, Tyler was.”
“I mentioned it out loud, ‘I’m having a panic attack,’ and it started in the car,” she explained. “And Matt just said, ‘Let’s keep this between me and you.’ And he just hands me this bar. I didn’t take it. I kept it in my hoodie pocket.”
She continued by stating she was confused about the fact that Baier had Xanax on him in the first place, since he has struggled with substance abuse in the past.
“I was like, ‘Why the f— does he have this?’ ” she said. “Amber started asking [him] questions. ‘Why do you look so high? Why are you wobbling around?’ And he was … making her second guess herself.”
Baltierra said she kept the pills in her hoddie pocket and was going to show them to her castmate and Baier’s fiancé, Amber Portwood.
“It was in my hoodie pocket. When I went to go look for it to show Amber, Matt was walking down the hallway, and we realized he went in my hoodie. I think he purposefully took my hoodie and put it on when he realized what was happening and took the evidence.”
She confirmed that she did not take the Xanax she was given.
Portwood, 27, postponed her wedding to Baier after the drug offer was revealed on an episode of Teen Mom OG. Portwood began to “freak out” because her fiancé was supposed to be sober and not in the possession of drugs.
“Will you still marry me?” he asked Portwood at the time. She shook her head no and he was shocked, asking, “Do you really mean that?”
“What about all these questions you’re going to get today?” he said, referring to the New York City press day.
“I’ll lie right now if they ask,” she said. “You made more than one f—— mistake, I’m not doing it.”
