Teen Mom 2 recap

The lawyers were the real winners on last night’s Teen Mom 2, racking up billable hours on never-ending custody issues.

Chelsea Houska meets with a child support referee to adjust Adam Lind’s child support, but he’s a no show. Nathan Griffith finally hires a lawyer to get custody of Kaiser, while Jenelle Evans’s lawyer tries to keep her out of jail. Leah Messer, Corey Simms, and most importantly, their twin girls, all have a victory in court. Kailyn Lowry has no need for a lawyer yet, as things seems to be going well with Javi Marroquin away.

Chelsea and three of her girlfriends make Cole DeBoer drive them to a wedding venue several hours away. Does Cole have friends? It seems odd to me that he would go on this trip unless he has nothing better to do. I’d rather stay home and babysit Chelsea’s mammoth dog and Pete-Pete. Before they head out, the girls and the hair monster living on Chelsea’s head push Mary’s car out of a snow drift.

This week, the Shahs of Sunset continue to contemplate how to break through to their old friend Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, who is struggling with issues of anger and excessive drinking. A group trip is in order and they waste no time getting the show on the road, so to speak.

GG is in her apartment, cleaning her knives and feeling sorry for herself because of her “declining health” with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I guess Asa Soltan Rahmati got the invite for this pity party and stops by to give GG her “magical” green sauce. Does everything in Asa’s life have magical powers? Note that GG has no problem shoveling carrots and green sauce into her mouth with her RA-riddled hand. GG begins to tell Asa about her fight with Mercedes “MJ” Javid and decides they all need to remember why they fell in love with each other in the first place. GG suggests the best way to do that is to go camping with the group so no one can hear their screams. They call Reza Farahan to explain the plan and he feigns excitement but agrees. GG gives Asa a hearty high-five (with her bad hand).

Teen Mom 2 recap

Last night’s episode confirmed it for me: this season of Teen Mom 2 is too long. How many times can we hear the same stories retold over and over and over again?

Chelsea Houska is trying to get Adam Lind’s child support adjusted, Adam impresses himself, Isaac doesn’t want Javi Marroquin to leave, Leah Messer thinks she has her s–t together, and Jenelle Evans won’t let Nathan Griffith see Kaiser. Some of the story lines actually moved last night, though. Jenelle finally met with Nathan, Javi left for deployment, Chelsea has a new plan for Aubree’s name, and Leah gets a court date for custody reconsideration.

Last week, we witnessed Leah’s awkward dinner with Jeremy Calvert and this week we relive it through her recap to friend Kayla. Jeremy has no interest in Leah, but that’s okay, because Leah doesn’t want to be in a relationship. She needs time and is focusing on her kids. Tinder hookups don’t count. Right after telling Kayla that Ali will eventually lose muscle function in her organs, Ali falls off a swing. It’s a sad reminder that Ali’s condition will continue to deteriorate.

This week’s episode of Shahs of Sunset shows the start of fences being mended and bridges being burned. Reza Farahan is ready to start forgiving Mike Shouhed but his patience is wearing thin with Mercedes “MJ” Javid and her loose lips with his boyfriend, Adam Neely.

MJ is not in the forgiving mood when it comes to Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, who is almost in the NFL (No Friends Left) zone if it weren’t for Shervin Roohparvar. MJ has more important things to worry about, like the virility of beau Tommy Feight’s sperm. Asa Soltan Rahmati, never one to miss out on an opportunity to spend pointless amounts of money and energy on priestess-y things, prepares for the secret wedding of Reza and Adam, who still has no idea he is going to be getting surprise married soon.

We barely saw Corey Simms on last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2 – even Nathan Griffith had more air time than him! – but other than that, last night’s episode was centered on dads, the old, the new, the steps, and the born again.

Chelsea Houska wants to replace Aubree’s old dad, Adam Lind, with new dad, Cole DeBoer. Adam accepts Cole as Aubree’s step-dad, but refuses to be ousted as DAD. Isaac’s step-dad, Javi Marroquin, is about to leave for a six month deployment, and dad, Jo Rivera, is prepared to help Kailyn Lowry. Jenelle Evans considers letting Nathan see his son, while she celebrates her birthday in New York with David Eason, who has a couple of kids of his own. And Leah Messer is getting along especially well with Addie’s dad, Jeremy Calvert. She thinks there may be a new spark with her old flame, which would conveniently spare her from having a fourth kid with a third man.

Shahs of Sunset recap

Last week, we watched what the Shahs of Sunset do what they do best – throw expensive parties and drink too much. This week, we are starting to see how each cast member’s story line will shape up over the course of the season.

Reza Farahan ponders how to surprise-marry his jilted groom, Adam Neely. Mercedes “MJ” Javid gives us a glimpse into her relationship with the loud-talking, derrière-loving Tommy Feight, who will put a ring on it this season (hopefully on camera). Asa Soltan Rahmati starts yet another business, blessed by essential oils and herbs. Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido already show cracks in their marriage, which Mike thinks he can fix with money once his new shoe line launches. Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi continues her downward spiral of bad behavior, fueled by alcohol and rage while Shervin Roohparvar tries in vain to contain her.

Teen Mom 2 recap

Two nights of Teen Mom 2 in a row and last night’s episode was a big one! It’s more rainbows and sunshine for Chelsea Houska who gets a special surprise from Cole DeBoer. Things are looking bleak for Jenelle Evans, though, who gets unexpected news from her lawyer. Corey Simms and Miranda Simms welcome a new baby while Leah Messer struggles to prove herself to them. And Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin spend some time apart after suffering a major loss.

Cole finally pops the question! We don’t get to see it happen, but we see a few cute pictures and Aubree draws it out for her grandma. Here’s how it went down: Cole took Chelsea to his favorite spot in the woods where he had pictures of the two of them and Aubree hanging on surrounding trees. Aubree was with him so he asked her if it was okay to marry her mommy. He had already asked Chelsea’s parents for their permission and he designed the ring. We get it, Cole is disgustingly perfect.

Shahs of Sunset

Another season, another reason to floss for the Shahs of Sunset, and let’s hope they bring the gold!

We open with a look back on Reza Farahan standing up Adam Neely at the altar in Thailand. That would be enough to ruin any normal relationship but who’s that creeping in the background while Reza sleeps? It’s Adam! These two lovebirds stayed together and made it work. They even added an adorable little rescue pup, Tini, to the family. I am really happy these two worked it out and Reza realized that the grass isn’t always greener. On Reza’s short list of goals: get married, build a house, have fun with friends and family…oh and have sex and buy gold. Naturally.

Newlyweds Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido are busy drinking free Fiji water from her Dad and working out to keep in tip top shape before their marriage crashes and burns. Because the couples that sweats together stays together. No irony or anything here. Mike starts to wax poetic about how amazing – and how hard – it is to be married for four months; apparently, he has to ask permission to do everything. I’m assuming Mike has managed to find some time to himself given that they are already getting divorced because of his cheating. I doubt Jessica gave permission on that one. I can’t wait to see how that plays out this season.
