Bristol and the kids took off to Los Angeles so Tripp could film "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors," giving the fractured couple some much needed time and space from each other. For Bristol, she admitted feeling like she had to start her life over "from scratch" after deciding to stay in Austin for the couple's two daughters instead of moving back to Alaska.
Though she said she didn't want any drama, there, of course, was some.
When Dakota called Bristol to try and figure out the schedule for the upcoming weeks, she told him she was allowed to bring the kids to Los Angeles and it wasn't something he could use against him in their divorce. She also said the lawyers sent him something saying not to touch her stuff and, as soon as she finds her own place, she'll be "gone like the wind."
"Do you see what I have to deal with on the back side of it? It's around and around, it's way off topic," Dakota told producers after the call. "Why do the attorneys have to come into it? I have no doubt that her mom is sitting right next to her, stoking that fire. It's unfortunate that a communication about the children has to be this exhausting."
Her mom, Sarah Palin, did pop up in the next scene and she didn't seem too distraught about Bristol's divorce. "Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn," Sarah told her daughter. According to the former Vice Presidential hopeful, the lesson here had something to do with "possessions and materialism" and how they don't "amount to a hill of beans."
Back in Austin, Dakota said the two weeks without Brisol around made him the "happiest that I've ever been since 2015." He added it felt "like what someone would feel like after they get out of a life sentence prison: incredible."
Though she said not to touch her stuff, Dakota moved her bed and set everything up for her in another room. "I want her to have her own space," he explained. "It's hard enough to live in the same house as somebody you're divorcing. Nothing good's gonna come from us being in the same place."
That did not sit well with Bristol when she came home, however.
"I don't blame him for not being around me, I just think it's complete BS that my stuff is moved," she said, starting to tear up.
"I'm just disappointed because in our divorce, I didn't ask for anything. All I asked for is the money I put into this house, to have that back," she said through tears. "Even with all the furniture and stuff, I bought everything in this house. I'm not going to be petty, I'm not going to take all of that, take the dishes. That to me is just petty."
Once again, Bristol's storyline was the most interesting of the night, but here's what went down with the other teen moms!
Amber Portwood checked in with ex and baby daddy Gary Shirley before heading out to Los Angeles to meet some of Andrew's friends and family. During the conversation, he told her about hiring a private investigator to help find his biological father.
After meeting with his mother proved fruitless -- she remembered that he was "stocky built, like you" and had brown hair -- we'll see him on the hunt for weeks to come.
The two jetted out to New York City on Monday's episode, where they appeared on Dr. Oz to talk about mental health.
During the show, Tyler once again asked if his wife could fill out the questionnaire his therapist gave him previously, as well as watching some of last season's episodes to get an understanding of what he went through when she was in treatment.
She eventually sat down to fill it out, but thought it was "intense" and may not be ready to handle it yet. The episode ended with Tyler venting to his friends about her not meeting some of his needs, adding, "Marriage is a bitch."
