Another Hook Up

Cory and Cheyenne went to dinner to celebrate the anniversary of the date they found out Cory was Ryder’s father and had a big party with their family. Afterward, they “did the nasty” as Cheyenne put it. “It wasn’t like some drunk sloppy sex … it’s definitely different from before,” she said on the finale.


Crossing the Line

During the reunion special, Cheyenne said she was open to a relationship but that Cory definitely wasn’t ready to settle down. “This is honestly what we’re trying to figure out right now. We crossed the line, keep crossing the line,” she said during the reunion special on December 24.


A Changed Man

Cory also broke down crying during the reunion, saying that he loves Ryder so much and he’s changed a lot since the moment they met. When Dr. Drew asked the pair if they’d have more kids together in the future, they both said yes. “100 percent,” he said. She responded, “I don’t know how long I’ll wait, but I’ll wait.”



During the January 7 Backstage Pass special, Bristol Palin’s ex Dakota Meyer told Cory, “You’d better marry Cheyenne. You’d be dumb if you didn’t.” Cory responded that he thinks they “can be together, but right now’s not the time.”
