Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.
Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.
Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer. Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.

Amber Portwood is having one heckuva year! In the latest drama to plague the Teen Mom star she is back in an Indiana jail after numerous probation violations. Oh dear…
Amber was issued an arrest warrant yesterday for an unknown issue, although it is suspected her arrest is related to failure to comply with the terms of her probation — including staying sober in public. TMZ is reporting that pending a judge’s assessment Amber could land up to two-years in jail for the violations!
Amber’s brother tells E! Online that after his sister missed her most recent probation hearing, authorities went to her house. During the visit, cops went through Amber’s purse and discovered some “old pills” that Amber could not show proof of prescription for. She was then arrested and put in jail.
Following the warrant Amber was booked in Madison County Jail in Indiana, where she is expected to stay through the holidays unless she can post bail. Luckily her salary from MTV should be sufficient! Amber is scheduled to appear in front of a judge, January 13. Her booking photo is below.
This is a disappointing turn of events for Amber who recently admitted to suffering from and receiving treatment for bi-polar disorder and claimed things are looking up for her. Hopefully, Amber will be able to straighten her life out for the sake of Leah.
In other Teen Mom news it’s unfortunately nothing positive. Star Magazine is reporting that Jenelle Evans has no desire to regain full custody of her two-year-old son, Jace. Despite putting some of her legal problems behind her and rebuilding her life, a friend tells the magazine that she believes Jenelle is fine with her mother Barbara Evans retaining at least partial custody and that Jenelle may never be a full-time mom! “I don’t think Jenelle will ever get full custody of Jace. I don’t even think it hurts her,” the family friend reveals.
“Years down the road, when Jenelle might have her life together, it’ll be weird for them to just start living on their own. It’s sad because he’s so happy when he’s with her,” the friend continued, adding that Jenelle is “great with Jace.”
Apparently part of the problem for Jenelle is the Teen Mom 2 star, who signed over custody to her mother following a tumultuous year which included an arrest and a stint in rehab, has gone boy-crazy since her mother stepped in. “Jenelle is obsessed with male attention,” the source discloses “She wants whatever she can get.” #priorities
“It’s not Jace’s fault he was born to Jenelle,” the source — who believes Jace is safer with Barabara — continues, “Barbara didn’t do this for Jenelle; she did it for Jace.” Hopefully Jenelle will realize the importance of motherhood and consider how much her son needs her.
ARE YOU SURPRISED AMBER WAS ARRESTED? DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE? SHOULD JENELLE BE MORE CONCERNED WITH GETTING HER SON BACK?

Despite their very tumultuous relationship, a new report states Kailyn Lowry wants another baby with ex Jo Rivera!
Star Magazine is reporting that the Teen Mom star has decided ex Jo is the one for her. “She is still in love with Jo,” a source close to Kailyn reveals. “She thinks Jo is still in love with her too.”
Even worse, Kailyn, 19, doesn’t just want to rekindle the romance with her baby daddy but she actually wants to have a second child with him! The two are parents to 22-month-old Isaac. “She wants to wait until after she graduates,” the source reveals to Star. “But she wants another baby with Jo.” Yikes.
Kailyn’s lingering feelings for Jo are to blame for the demise of her relationship with former boyfriend, Jordan Wenner. According to sources all was going well between Kailyn and Jordan until Kailyn cheated on him with Jo. “Jo was spending time with her and their son, Isaac, and basically one thing led to another,” the source says. “Kailyn cheated on Jordan, and Jo cheated on his girlfriend, Vee.”
Soon after, Kailyn and Jordan broke up leading to a brief reconciliation between Kailyn and Jo. “When Kailyn and Jordan broke up, she and Jo got together again,” says the source adding that Kailyn is, however, feeling uncertain.
“Kailyn is a bit torn now,” the source reveals. “Jo plays games with her. But if Jo broke up with his girlfriend and then said he wanted to be with Kailyn, she’d do it.”
While Kailyn still has feelings for Jo, who has been shown being verbally abusive to her on the MTV hit show, sources say she is also motivated by Kailyn’s wish for her son to have a support system. “She wants Jo, Isaac and her to be a family,” the source says. “She never had a family like that growing up, and she wants that for her son.”

It seems that even though the ladies girls of Teen Mom 2 have taken over our television sets, the original “mothers” are not going quietly into that good night. Never one to be absent from the tabloids and Internet fodder for long, Amber Portwood is now facing two years in prison… at least she waited for her Child Protective Services case to be closed.
While her ex Gary“Strippergate”Shirley has gained primary custody of the couple’s daughter, Leah, Amber’s clean slate may not be as clean as she’d like. She’s on two years probation for socking Gary while MTV cameras rolled. However, she had just a few stipulations for her probation, and according to TMZ, she’s violated them all. Court documents obtained by the site state that the several terms of Amber’s probation have not been met.
Amber’s probation officer is accusing her of a multitude of violations, including –
– “Failure to behave well in society” — namely, drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month
– Failure to obtain a GED
– Failure to complete 6 months of anger control evaluation and classes
– Failure to pay probation fees
– Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter
My personal favorite — “failure to behave well in society” a.k.a. binge drinking and beating up on IHOP restaurant patrons.
Amber’s original sentence for that whole “punching Gary national television” situation was suspended pending she meet the criteria of her probation. Now that she’s been accused otherwise, will she face the two year jail sentence? Her hearing is set for January, so let’s hope the second cycle of Teen Moms ramp up their drama then for competition’s sake we should know more about her legal fate then.
While Amber’s dealing with legal issues, fellow cast mate Farrah Abraham is focusing on matters of the heart. The young mother, at the ripe old age of twenty, is currently romancing Marcel Kaminstein — fourteen years her senior — who she met on the Internet dating site JDate.com.
“I’m happy and hoping for the best,” says the mom of Sophia on her budding relationship. Life & Stylerevealed in September that Farrah is searching for “a man who is happy, supportive, works hard, is successful, can stay in but also go out, is active, outgoing, easygoing, likes children and dogs, can be serious but knows when to have fun, and is a romantic,” per her online profile. You know who that sounds like, right? Paging Kieffer Delp, paging Mr. Delp!
Farrah and Marcel went public with their romance in December. After brunching and beaching in Miami, the couple posed for pictures and shared kisses with Farrah later tweeting, “I had a great time at the beach with my bf!” Tweeting and using tween lingo like “bf” — sounds exactly like what the normal 34-year-old looks for in a 20-year-old lady friend.
A friend of Farrah’s reveals that even 2-year-old Sophia is smitten, stating, “She’s always hugging him. He’s great with kids.” He should be, he’s dating one. Zing! Inappropriate? The magazine reports that Farrah plans to keep Sophia full time in Florida, even though the toddler has been mainly living with Farrah’s mother Debra in Iowa.
So, is this mature suitor the MTV teen (mom) queen’s perfect match? She admits, “I want to build a strong and lasting relationship with him.” Sounds like perfect fodder for season three!

WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S ALLEGED PROBATION VIOLATIONS? SHOULD SHE SERVE TIME IN JAIL? THOUGHTS ON FARRAH’S NEW RELATIONSHIP? IS HER NEW BOYFRIEND CREEPY — NOT BECAUSE OF THE MATHEMATICAL AGE DIFFERENCE, BUT BECAUSE SHE ACTS LIKE SHE’S TWELVE?
Good news and bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood as the Indiana Child Protective Services has now closed its investigation against her.
The bad news? Her baby daddy Gary Shirley was awarded primary physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter Leah. “Today amongst all days is the single greatest day for the rest of my life:)…My daughter officially mine. More than before. Love you so much @leah_leann so were hitting up some Disney in Florida to celebrate. ” tweeted the classy Gary yesterday. And just in case you forgot, yes, Gary did open up a Twitter account for his 3-year-old.
Gary’s lawyer Jeff Lockwood also confirmed the news to Hollybaby. “Today the Department of Child Services dismissed their case against both parents,” Jeff stated Wednesday. “Now that DCS is out of way, regular court order comes into play.”
So what does this mean for Amber, 21? Jeff explains, “Gary is the primary custodian which means he has custody of Leah and Amber has visitation rights.”
Jeff adds that Leah will be with Amber every other weekend, Friday through Sunday, while alternating holidays and time in the summer with Gary.
While Amber admits Gary now has primary physical custody, she gives an interesting explanation to E! Online. “Gary and I have joint custody and Leah only lives with him because they [CPS] felt she wasn’t safe with me when my house got vandalized,” states Amber.
Amber also adds that Gary and her are doing much better as co-parents to Leah. “We’re getting along fine, not fighting,” she said. “Everything is finally good.”
The investigation by Child Services began last year after MTV aired footage of Amber physically attacking Gary in the presence of their daughter, Leah. In fact, Amber was arrested for domestic violence and ultimately received a suspended two-year sentence, plus two years of probation. Amber has had an especially hard time in the past year which included a suicide attempt back in June followed by a 2-month stint in rehab.

TELL US – IS LEAH BETTER OF WITH GARY? OR SHOULD AMBER HAVE REGAINED CUSTODY?
On last night’s Teen Mom 2, Chelsea Houska decides to give jackleg Adam Lind YET ANOTHER chance, Kailyn Lowry finds herself worrying about making ends meet (and she’s the only responsible one!) and Jenelle Evans ends up living in her car with deadbeat boyfriend Kieffer Delp. Don’t these girls make bank for doing this show? Or at least enough to pay rent? It’s depressing to watch, much less recap, but I Just. Can’t. Turn. Away.
Kailyn is feeling the strain of living with her mother and her boyfriend. She shares a note with her friend that she received from said boyfriend after coming in late from work (yes, work… does he realize it could be MUCH worse?). Kailyn is extremely hurt that her mom is turning the other cheek while she works hard and attends school full time. Kailyn is ready to get her own place and cut all ties. I will say her mother has always rubbed me the wrong way.

With Teen Mom 2 back on the rails, we’re likely to see the girls from MTV’s second cycle of the series everywhere we turn. If nothing else, it gives us a much needed break from stories about the ladies of the original Teen Mom, right? The upcoming issue of US Weekly is no exception, highlighting some of the messier relationships the girls face this season, like Leah Messer’s divorce and Chelsea Houska’s horrible relationship decisions.
According to the magazine, even though she’s the one who filed the divorce papers, Leah Messer, 19, is adamant that she had high hopes her marriage would last. She insists, “I wanted to go through counseling, but he didn’t. I wanted the divorce to stop.” The mother of 2-year-old twin girls with her ex-husband, 21-year-old Corey Simms reveals that up until the end, “I was trying to make it work.”
Of course, fast forward to July of this year — a mere month after the couple’s divorce was final — and Leah has met a new man, Jeremy Calvert, 22. After all she’d been through, Leah vowed, “I was never going to have a boyfriend again.” She even admits, “I was scared… I stood him up.” Of her new beau, Leah gushes, “He’s really mature.” As you recall, the lovebirds moved in together in October.
Speaking of people who make me want to shove a pencil in my eye lovebirds, Leah’s co-star Chelsea Houska, 20, is dishing to the magazine about her on-again-off-again relationship with cheating d-bagAdam Lind, the father of their two-year-old daughter Aubree. As of the magazine’s publication, the pair is currently off, but knowing these two, it’s only a matter of time before Adam is nice to Chelsea for a full ninety seconds causing her to fall head over heels and start supporting his freeloading ways.
While Adam has admitted to cheating on Chelsea multiple times, she admits, “I’m comfortable with him.” She continues, “It’s hard to let him go. I can’t even count how many times we’ve gotten back together!” Someone please give this poor girl some self-esteem!
Chelsea’s extremely supportive father joined her family, friends and all of MTV’s viewing population in thinking that his daughter’s relationship was “a trainwreck.” He, unlike Chelsea, must still remember those scathing text messages Adam sent his daughter on their episode of 16 and Pregnant. Of their recent, but now defunct, reconciliation, Chelsea reveals that her dad was “disappointed.”
She says, “I couldn’t explain to him why I do it — I don’t even know… I know it’s not right, but I do it anyway.” Perhaps Chelsea should figure that out and work on showing her daughter what it’s like to value and respect herself so Aubree doesn’t make the same mistakes.
It’s this kind of drama that has more viewers than ever tuning in to watch Leah, Chelsea and their co-stars Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry. TVbytheNumbers.com is reporting that 4.2 million people watched last week’s season premiere, giving it the highest ratings of a premiere in the franchise. The number of viewers increased 21 percent from the show’s first season premiere, not to mention making December 6th, MTV’s most viewed Tuesday night in the network’s history. So, in the words of Chelsea’s father, it may be a “trainwreck” but we certainly can’t turn away from the aftermath.
A new episode of Teen Mom2 premieres tonight at 10PM ET on MTV.

DO YOU THINK LEAH WANTED HER MARRIAGE TO WORK EVEN AFTER FILING FOR DIVORCE? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CHELSEA AND ADAM? WILL YOU BE TUNING IN TONIGHT?
With Teen Mom 2 second’s season premiering this past Tuesday night, I am sure the young mothers (if they are anything like their original counterparts) will be giving us a lot on which to report.
Never one to be out of trouble the lime light for long is the troubled Jenelle Evans. I must say that I hope Jenelle (she’s admittedly one of my favorites… I see a lot of potential in her — let the comments begin! ) gets her life in order, and as Hollybaby.com is reporting, it appears that she is hopefully changing her situation for the better.
Highlighting a recent magazine interview, the blog discusses Jenelle’s decision to check into rehab. She explains, “My life just started spiraling out of control, my emotions were running wild and I didn’t know how to slow them down. I was having trouble quitting marijuana. I just had to get away from all the drama. If I hadn’t gone, I’m pretty sure I’d be in jail.” She continues, “I’m doing everything in the right direction. I’ve learned how to control my anger.”
As viewers of Teen Mom 2 are well aware, it’s Jenelle’s anger — or mishandling of that anger — that gets her in the most trouble. She admits, “Now when I have problems with people, I confront them about it, but I’m civil instead of yelling. I learned it’s better to leave than have Jace watch me argue with my mom.” Well, that revelation is clearly a step in the right direction!
However, Jenelle believes that her mother, the always yelling Barbara Evans, isn’t ready to see her daughter’s improvement… although many would likely say, ‘Can you blame her?’ Still Jenelle reveals, “She’s just really scared of me getting custody back, because I’m so close. She’s going to do anything in her power for me not to get him back.” I have to wonder if Barbara is so anti-Jenelle as Jenelle seems to think, or just simply pro-Jace.
While Jenelle continues with counseling, she wishes her mother would join her in an effort to resolve their issues. According to Jenelle, her mother will not attend therapy. She explains, “She claims she doesn’t need it and that I’m the one that needs it.” Jenelle adds that the pair don’t get together to tune into the MTV hit because it will likely result in a fight. As for Barbara, she comments, “Jenelle continues to struggle with motherhood.”
Still, Barbara hopes that Jenelle will continue to improve. “I’m hoping the situation gets better,” says Barbara. “I can never give up on my daughter, and it’s important to me that Jace has a close relationship with his mom.”
As Jenelle continues to work on herself and her relationships, she also seems to be faring very well (read: incredibly lucky) in her legal battles. EOnline.com reports that Jenelle has once again avoided jail time. After her recent hearing, the reality star (I hate to give these girls that much credence, but MTV already has, so it is what it is) tweeted, “And the judge congratulated me to [sic] being clean since August and got drug tested at court and I passed of course. Probation got continued!!” Now, let’s just take some of that exuberance and channel it into being a mother and regaining custody.
After facing charges for drug possession and, later, assault, U.S. District Judge Marion R. Warren of Brunswick County, North Carolina last week found that Jenelle was abiding by all of her probation terms. Until her probation period expires in April, Jenelle will still be subject to twice monthly drug testing. Jenelle can also cross off her list the required anger-management courses and parenting classes which were a stipulation of her probation, as she has completed them.
Her attorney Dustin Sullivan states, “She has been doing everything that has been asked of her. She’s been doing tremendously well.” He says confidently, “I have no doubt it will be a successful probation.”
