16 and Pregnant

16 and Pregnant star Ebony Jackson is telling her side of the story after CPS took her daughter away this week. The former MTV star opens up about her depression and suicidal thoughts after suffering a miscarriage.

The problems for Ebony began this week after cops raided the home she shares with her husband Josh Rendon following an anonymous complaint. What they discovered was pretty horrific. The police report reveals cops found “human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing” in every room of the house. Their house was also “full of flies and in some areas, maggots.”

As a result, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn was taken away by CPS and now remains in temporary foster care, while Ebony and Josh were arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In an interview with the HollyBaby blog, Ebony, 20, opens up about her struggles. “I had been suffering with depression. I lost a kid, so I’ve been going through my own personal problems and so I haven’t been able to be the wife, mom that I’m supposed to be,” she says. “Neither of us wanted any of this to happen… One of my old friends [called us in] and she reported a lot of false things.”

“We never have our house that dirty,” adds Ebony, blaming the “dog feces” mess on the fact that puppies were just born in her home. “Our daughter never lives like that. Our daughter is always taken care of. She will always be taken care of. Our daughter always comes first in our lives and I don’t want anyone to think that we are just a couple of drug heads because we’re not.”

When asked to explain the synthetic marijuana that was found in their home, Ebony takes full responsibility for it. “It was mine,” says Ebony. “It had nothing to do with Josh. It was all mine and I was just doing it to self harm … after the loss of my son, I just lost him two months ago.”

Ebony goes on to reveal that her emotional issues were triggered by the loss of an unborn son. “I’ve been depressed, anxious, dealing with the loss of [the baby]. I was already hospitalized at the beginning of June — for suicide prevention,” she said going on to add that she’s looking to get help now. “I’m going to go back to therapy to find the right depression medication… I just want to let all of our fans know we are sorry for letting them down and for letting Jocelyn down.”

Unfortunately for Ebony, there might be more trouble coming her way. TMZ is reporting this morning that Josh is now at risk of getting kicked out of the military.

Josh, who is a member of the Air Force, is currently under investigation in relation to his arrest this week. A rep for Little Rock Air Force Base confirms Josh could indeed be discharged.

Even worse, if Josh is discharged, he and Ebony will lose their home as they currently live on the base.

TELL US: THOUGHTS ON EBONY’S COMMENTS? IS THERE ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR THE CONDITION OF THE HOME? SHOULD JOSH BE DISCHARGED?

16 and Pregnant couple Ebony Jackson and Josh Rendon had their daughter taken away by Child Protective Services Tuesday night after cops invaded their home.

What the cops discovered is pretty shocking as well as vomit inducing. According to TMZ, cops decided to pay the former MTV reality stars a visit after someone called the Department of Human Services, complaining about the living conditions in the house.

It appears the cops had good reason to do so. The police report reveals, “Every room inside the residence had human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing.”

Even more horrific, “The house was full of flies and in some areas, maggots.” The cops add that evidence of “synthetic marijuana” was also discovered. The couple had their 2-year-old daughter taken away from them, and rightfully so. Animal control was also called to rescue three dogs in the house.

In addition to losing their daughter, Josh and wife Ebony, 20, were also arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and drug possession.

Josh, who starred on season one with Ebony, spoke to TMZ and took responsibility for the mess. He stated, “It was fair for them to charge us with this. [Our house] wasn’t clean.”

The couple was released from custody on Wednesday after they each posted an $8,000 bond. Josh and Ebony are now working hard to try to get back their daughter, who remains in CPS custody.

It’s Life After Labor for the girl’s of MTV’s season three of 16 and Pregnant. Dr. Drew is on hand to host the reunion and ask the hard-hitting questions, as he interviews Jordan Ward, Jennifer Del Rio, Jamie McKay, Danielle Cunningham, Cleondra Carter, Kayla Jackson, Izabella Tovar, Kianna Randall, Taylor Lumas, and Allie Mendoza.

First in the hot seat is Jordan Ward and her husband Brian Finder. You may remember that Jordan was at the center of a tug-of-war between her twin sister Jessica and Brian. An emotional Jordan reveals to Dr. Drew that she felt the need to have sex so soon because of insecurities brought upon by a very unstable upbringing. On the reunion, the couple explains that they are happily married and living with their son Noah in St. Louis with Jordan’s grandparents and sister Jessica. Jessica now sings Brian’s praises. Both twins get teary when talking about the future. Jessica is so proud that she is the first in her family to go to college, but is distraught that her sister isn’t able to do the same. Jordan still hopes to make something of herself, but admits it’s hard to even think of the financial burden that school loans would bring to her new family. Brian has enlisted in the Air Force, and as we know from recent news, the couple is expecting their second child…although that tidbit was not addressed with Dr. Drew.

It’s the ninety minute finale of 16 and Pregnant, and of course, MTV saved the worst for last. Tragic. This episode follows Allie Mendoza, a sixteen year old senior in Pasadena, Texas, who is having a baby boy with her boyfriend Joey Aranzeta. Joey is two years younger, and is the one person who makes Texas bearable for Allie. She moved to Texas with her dad from New Jersey, and she very much misses her mom. Shocker! She found out she was pregnant after just two to three months of dating (I feel like I was in high school in the Stone Ages…do teens now just start having sex the minute they start dating?), and Double Shocker! She’s, “um, on the Pill” but missed a couple of days.

Allie reveals that she had to move out of her dad’s house when she got pregnant, so of course, she moves right in with her boyfriend’s parents. Joey’s mom Yolanda admits that she met Allie once, and the next time she saw her son’s girlfriend, she was pregnant. Allie is uncomfortable staying there, and that is compounded by the fact that Yolanda struggles with drug abuse. The couple wishes they could live with Joey’s grandmother Belen, but space is an issue. Of course, the grandmother even states that Yolanda doesn’t know how to be a mom, and there are more revelations about what life is like in the House of Yolanda. Late night visitors, screaming matches, and a basically unsafe (according to Yolanda’s son Joey) environment. Yoland’a mother Belen hosts a family meeting which basically becomes a round table for bashing Allie’s father for kicking her out for getting pregnant.

Taylor Lumas
On Tuesday’s episode of 16 and Pregnant, we meet Taylor Lumas from Cincinnati, Ohio. Taylor became pregnant at fourteen by her boyfriend of a year older, track star Nathan Bridewell. The couple met at a roller skating party. Taylor lives with her mother Debi and really doesn’t have much of a relationship with her father. Her older sister Jeana lives down the street with her family. Also down the block? Nathan…and it’s a good thing too, since neither teen is old enough to drive yet.

Taylor talks to her friend about how nervous she was to tell her mother about her pregnancy. She tells her friend she considered using food coloring on tampons so her mother would think she was still having her period. Nothing screams maturity and readiness for parenthood like using kitchen fixings to hide a pregnancy. At seventeen, Taylor’s mom gave up a baby for adoption before giving birth to Taylor, and she is hoping her daughter also chooses that path. The young couple is having a girl and are totally opposed to adoption.

Kianna Randall is the seventeen-year-old rising high school senior highlighted in this week’s episode of 16 and Pregnant. She lives in Fort Worth, Texas, and her boyfriend of two months, Zak Hegab, lives thirty minutes away and attends a different high school. Both Kianna and Zak grew up without their fathers, and they are viewing this baby in light of that…but with very different opinions.

The daughter of a teen mom, Kianna is intelligent and well-spoken. She wants to go to college and become a veterinarian. We learn her mother Rachel was very open with Kianna in hopes of not having her daughter in the same position she was in during high school. Kianna admits that she got pregnant after forgetting to take her birth control pill for three days. Kianna reveals that she briefly considered abortion, but is now contemplating adoption, so that her baby can have the life she will be unable to give him…and she will be able to have the life she planned for herself. The couple is having a boy.

Tuesday’s 16 and Pregnant introduces us to Izabella Tovar and her boyfriend Jairo Rodriguez from Draper, Utah. Izabella lives at home with very supportive parents and is a rising sophomore at a local Catholic school. She has spent the summer hanging out with Jairo, her boyfriend of three months and avoiding her friends, as she is trying to keep her pregnancy a secret. The couple is expecting a boy in September.

At seven and a half months, Izabella goes to visit her best friend Cassidy, and her bump reveals why she’s there before she even needs to say a word. Cassidy admits that she had heard rumors of her friend’s pregnancy but was waiting to hear it from her. Cassidy promises to help Izabella maintain her studies. Her parents take a cue from Izabella and Cassidy and decide to spill the beans to the rest of the family. Her uncle paints a pretty harsh, yet spot-on, description of what likely lies ahead for the young couple.

This week’s episode of 16 and Pregnant was a special ninety minute installment which tackles both teen pregnancy and eating disorders by following Winthrop, Minnesota’s Kayla Jackson and her boyfriend Mike Schwing.

A pregnant junior, Kayla is a student athlete who was hospitalized for anorexia at age thirteen. She moves from the hustle and bustle of her father and step-mother’s home to live with her mom, who (of course) allows Mike to move in with her daughter. Mike is sweet and beyond helpful, but he is barely a supporting cast member in this play, which resolves around Kayla’s body insecurities and broken relationship with her mother.

The couple was not using birth control when they got pregnant (cue more PSAs, please, MTV), and Mike has given up on college to work part-time to raise money for his growing family. Kayla’s mom Deb (who gave birth to Kayla as a teen) promises to help as well, but she spends the majority of her time with her own boyfriend.
