For all the drama and interesting characters we have with Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, it feels like this show is surprisingly stuck on the same issues and in the same place for the last few episodes. I’m here to see it through, but it seems like we are rehashing a lot of the same things over and over again.
Kayla: Kayla only has help when her mom is home from work. This is because Stephan lost his ever-loving mind with her mom and doesn’t come around anymore. Kayla goes out to eat giant cookies with a friend and discusses custody issues and Stephan’s lack of stability. This is a classic TM segment.
Lexi: Lexi is lonely. She mentions her dad who lives 4 hours away. Her parents divorced when she was 5, and split when she was about 1.
A lot of reality stars were gathered in NYC last night for the OK! Magazine Summer Party! A slew of ladies from the various Real Housewives franchises, the Summer House cast, Teen Mom stars, and more were spotted at the event together.
Before we get to the Teen Mom Young and Pregnant recap…I just can’t resist. Can we talk about Teen Mom 2 for just a minute (it’s basically the big sister to this motley crew anyway)? The whole episode is the girls prepping to leave for the reunion show, or there for filming. As they are getting ready, Jenelle is wearing a ‘Bearded Men Only’ tank top. There are also words coming out of her mouth but they really don’t compare to that tank. Its reminiscent of her Pink days and former workout gear she used to sport with Nathan, but now we are into the David Era. Honestly, that tank overshadowed the whole first half of the episode. Also Jenelle, no one else wants David, you’re totally fine.
They all somehow get themselves to California and mill around studios and hotels. At some point, Javi comes to visit Briana who is feeding the baby on the bed. He sits down and they flirt on the hotel bed, which honestly just seems efficient. If they just had all their dates in hotels on beds they could save a lot of time…
No one loves sharing photos as much as a proud mom. That’s why it’s not at all surprising that most of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from Mother’s Day. Some of them are moms and others just spent time with their own mothers. Did you even celebrate Mother’s Day if you didn’t post about it on Instagram? Apparently not.
It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.
My DVR caught the tail end of Teen Mom 2 and the highlights of what’s to come with their new season. So many questions, so many train wrecks. Leah hooked up with Jeremy? Remember Jeremy? He was her second husband who she seemed to marry after a month and get a divorce from like two weeks later. Here’s a novel idea, how about you slow down and figure out if you truly want to be married to that person and should you marry that person you give it some actual time before rushing to file for divorce! Not to be outdone, it seems one, Ms. Jenelle EvansRogersEvans Eason, will be getting a visit from the cops regarding the welfare of her children. You know what? If the cops show up to my house asking if my child is OK I’m going to let them in and say heck yes, would you like to see just how OK? People who take care of their children don’t need to be defensive. Just in case you think the crazy is saved for the girls, Javi was thinking about proposing to Brianna? Javi, did you learn nothing from rushing into marriage with the last Teen Mom you were with? Does it not seem concerning the new Teen Mom just gave birth to her second baby with a second baby daddy and that you’ve been dating for five minutes? And then we get Chelsea crying over Adam’s mom being mean. I truly think MTV is completely irresponsible for having Janelle still on the show and I think about quitting but a trailer like this sure makes it difficult. I’m a sucker for a show that leaves me yelling and shaking my head at the tv. With that, I guess we better get on to the new business that keeps us yelling and shaking our heads: Teen Mom Young and Pregnant!
