Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 reveals what’s wrong with baby Stella after Briana DeJesus had to rush her to the ER, while a very pregnant Kailyn Lowry ends up in the hospital with her own complications. Chelsea DeBoer moves forward with plans to change Aubree’s last name as well as wedding planning, Leah Messer tries to keep growing tension between the twins at bay on vacation and Jenelle Evans’ relationships with her mom Barb continue to deteriorate.
Kail and the boys are still in St. Thomas on their last family vacation before the baby comes but at 35 weeks, Kail is feeling uncomfortable and notices some unusual swelling in her feet. As the day progresses, her hands and face start to swell, so the producers call a doctor since she’s worried about pre-eclampsia. If she does, that means Kail wouldn’t be able to fly home and she debates on which island she could get to in order to have the baby still be a U.S citizen.
I think we all saw it coming when bestie/worstie of friends Reza Farahan didn’t exactly jump to Asa’s defense during her falling out with Mercedes “MJ” Javid over whether or not Asa used IVF to conceive her “miracle baby.” But let’s face it, MJ wasn’t really mad about Asa using IVF or not, she was really just pissed that Asa beat her to the punch when it came to having a kid. So MJ just found the weakest link in the Asa Chain (the fact that Asa isn’t forthcoming with all aspects of her life) and exploited it with the rest of the Shahs to get them on board with casting Asa aside. And it actually worked!
On Teen Mom 2, it’s more of the same and it seems like some issues will never get resolved in the long term. Jenelle Evans is still at war with mom Barb, despite the custody agreement that was supposed to make everything easier. Kailyn Lowry and ex-husband Javi Marroquin are in the same boat but instead of custody, it’s child support that is dragging out. Briana DeJesus doesn’t have a custody or child support issue yet but likely will in the near future since baby daddy Luis is starting to disappear. Chelsea DeBoer has plenty on her plate between wedding planning, possibly modifying custody and changing Aubree’s last name at Aubree’s request. Leah Messer has her hands full as twins Ali and Aleeah’s fighting escalates. That seems like a good place to start so let’s get going.
Leah is driving the twins to see their dad and they are in the backseat, slapping and hitting each other while they argue over sharing beef jerky. Once they are with dad Corey Simms, the fighting doesn’t stop as Aleeah catches a fish and Ali complains that she’s bored and wants to leave since she can’t really partake in catching fish at the lake. Aleeah reels one in and wants to stay, but they opt to leave and Corey has to break up another fight that starts the second they are in the car with one another. Aleeah is in tears and Corey knows she is acting out because she is getting less attention.
It doesn’t look like L.A. is missing the Shahs much and I’m pretty sure New York will be happy to get rid of them but first, we have to suffer through Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s life-changing, earth-shattering, coming of age bit part in an off Broadway play that she keeps talking about. In case we haven’t been taking her seriously up to this point, she has learned her lines and thus, turned her chaotic life around in one single unpaid job opportunity. To quote Reza Farahan, it only took 35 years.
Before Chelsea gets into planning, she is busy focusing on the kids and getting baby Watson to his four month shot appointment. He’s getting so big! Husband Cole DeBoer has to work but he will do his best to join them at the doctor’s office, which Chelsea is hoping for. Shots are much harder on mom and the extra emotional support is never a bad thing. Aubree is coming along and on their way over, Chelsea calls Cole, who says he will meet them there. Aubree sweetly says she knew he would make it. After the emerge from the appointment, Chelsea says Watson didn’t enjoy at all and screamed as soon as he got his first shot but once he’s in the car and headed home, Watson is right back to his smiling, giggling self.
After the Shahs of Sunset have spent so much time talking about the new and improved Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, does anyone miss the old GG? You know, the one filled with knife-loving, hair-triggered rage and drama? If that’s the GG you have come to know and love, the good news is that she’s back this episode! The bad news is that all her crazy is overshadowed by all the crazy that her new boyfriend, Shalom Yeroushalmi, has to offer. Sounds like a match made in heaven!
Before we get to that train wreck of a relationship, we still have to sort through another in the form of Mercedes “MJ” Javid and fiancé Tommy Feight. Last week ended with their epic fight about whether or not to knock her up, with Tommy simply asking for some more time for them to get healthy and grow up a little. Of course one would like to think that an engaged couple in their forties that’s been talking about having a baby for over a year would already have figured that all out but this is Shahs, people – don’t go expecting much.
If you’re still watching Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, the train wreck of a spin off that gave us six episodes to tide us over until Vanderpump Rules starts again, then you probably saw the escalation of Jax Taylor’s bad behavior from a mile away. This week, Jax takes that bad behavior to a whole new level of douchy-ness, resulting in him blatantly disrespecting girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, her family, AND her friends. No one is safe when Jax has had a few tequila shots and feeling homesick for L.A.
We start the episode with Jax actually claiming to be enjoying his farm chores as he gets up early with Mamaw to feed the chickens and the cows. Mamaw is so impressed that this “city boy” is enjoying throwing some chicken feed into a pen and heaps a chicken’s turd worth of praise on him about what a man this makes him. I guess Mamaw is hurting for company since her standards are so low but either way, Jax seems to do no wrong in her eyes.
For a few of the moms on Teen Mom 2, it’s been a long time coming for some big moments in their lives. Briana DeJesus joined the cast this season pregnant and still with baby daddy Luis but so much has happened in between, it seems like she’s been pregnant for years. It probably felt like it for her too!
Kailyn Lowry has actually been waiting and working for years to graduate college and this week’s episode shows that she is one step closer to walking across the stage to get her degree. Leah Messer works on a new dream of hers, while Jenelle Evans unexpectedly clashes with her mom Barbara, and Chelsea DeBoer takes her family on a Florida vacation.
