Welcome to season 8 of Teen Mom 2! Some things haven’t changed at all, like Jenelle Evans’ attitude long standing feud with mom Barb over custody of Jace and love for all things drama, but there are plenty of other changes going on with the cast from new babies to new teen moms joining the show in the form of Briana DeJesus.
Speaking of, Briana is already familiar with Kailyn Lowry’s now ex-husband, Javi Marroquin after meeting a few years ago. We get to see some footage of their friendship in action when Javi drops by her dressing room after a taping of the Teen Mom 2 after show. Javi flirts good naturedly, saying Briana’s mom was trying to hook them up but that won’t work now since Briana is pregnant with boyfriend (?) Luis. She flips her hair and smiles back but goes on to say that things are going really well with Luis and they plan on moving in together. Oh, and she’s having another girl.
Happy Monday! Teen Mom 2 returns for its eighth season tonight and almost EVERYONE is pregnant!
We catch up with Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer tonight and we have a fifth mom in the mix this time around! Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus is joining the show this season! When the season starts off, Briana is pregnant with her second child and we’ll get a glimpse of her journey as she raises daughter Nova – who has grown SO much since we saw her last!
It’s a big, big world but wherever Jenelle Evans goes, mayhem follows! In the latest, Jenelle, David Eason, and their brood – including Jace – hit the beach for a family vacation to St. Thomas, but before they landed on home soil, Jenelle was accused of attacking a fan at the airport.
Jenelle claims a “starstruck” fan refused to stop taking photos of them, even though Jenelle told the woman she was scaring Jace and David’s daughter Maryssa. MTV cameras were also filming the family vacation, and apparently captured the airport drama. Jenelle says after the woman refused to leave her alone, she insisted the Teen Mom 2 crew remove the over-zealous viewer from her vicinity. And that’s where the drama ended.
Well, Farrah Abraham has forgiven Dr. Drew, and now they’re both counselors here to teach us how to have functional family relationships and deal with life. Um.
The Teen Mom OG star chatted with Dr. Drew and his co-host Bob Forrest (Celebrity Rehab alumni) on his podcast, where Farrah opened up about her complex family dynamics, what she learned from appearing on WeTV’s Family Boot Camp, and how everything is Debra Danielsen‘s fault. Dr. Drew was also available to diagnose Debra’s mental state and praise Farrah for being so smart.
Jenelle Evans was back in court with her mom Barbara Evans to sort out custody of her oldest son Jace, 7. According to sources, the Teen Mom 2 star was unsuccessful in her latest attempt to get full custody, but they were able to work out a co-parenting like arrangement.
Brandi begins by gushing that Amber is a “gangsta!” and marvels that she’s been on TV for a decade yet still stays “relatable.” Amber takes issues with the word relatable, because most people do not have a “telescope” on their deeply personal issues. Amber explains that she spends so much time filming ‘on the couch’ because, “I don’t feel comfortable going out into a public place and talking about … cause in my life some issues I feel are very personal. For other people to just be listening or eavesdropping, it makes me uncomfortable and I’ll shut myself [down]. I want to be truthful.”
Amber Portwood is finally thinking with her brain and not, uhh, her desire for a TV wedding. The Teen Mom OG star has decided to call off her wedding to many-times-over deadbeat dad Matt Baier.
I think we can all rejoice in this good decision. Although, before we get too cocky, Amber and Matt are still very much together to milk this drama for the new season, but after recent information surfaced, Amber’s not ready to make a lifelong commitment just yet.
WV is a little-itty bitty state where everybody knows everybody – this weekend Jermey Calvert was caught posing on Instagram with Leah Messer. Jeremy denies that he’s rekindling things with his infamous ex, and explains they ran into each other at a bar, and decided to show the world that despite what we see on Teen Mom 2 they actually get along pretty well!
The chance meet-up with Leah was just that – serendipity! “It wasn’t planned or anything,” says Jeremy. “It just happened we went to the same place. Me and Leah are not back together, we’re strictly friends.”
