It’s hard for me to take Dr. Drew seriously after watching him placate the many delusional wonders of the Teen Mom franchise. Despite that he ever-so-rarely calls Original Crazy Farrah Abraham out on her nonsense, or questions her behavior, Dr. Drew is finally admitting that Farrah irritates the hell out of him. Finally something we have in common!
Over the many years, Dr. Drew has been barely dealing with the many issues of Farrah, all under the pretense of being a psychiatrist, he explains that she’s “not awful,” but the many-layered reality star is awfully “frustrating.” He also pretty much calls her crazy.
People complaining about Farrah Abraham’s parenting choices is nothing new. In fact, it seems to be a pretty constant occurrence for the Teen Mom star. People hated on her for doing her daughter’s eyebrows while she was asleep. Everyone questioned her for doing that sex tape. There are also a lot of people who don’t support their participation in the MTV reality show.
Now people have another reason to be upset with the fame-hungry reality star. She posted photos of her seven year old daughter Sophia modeling bathing suits and wearing full makeup on her Instagram and the account that she runs on Sophia’s behalf.
Dr. Drew cuts right to the chase and asks for the status on Kail and Javi’s marriage. Supposedly Kail doesn’t know yet because it’s hard to make big life decisions while he’s gone. We all know she’s made up her mind, so maybe the life decisions she’s unsure of aren’t related to staying in the marriage, but rather what kind of visitation schedule Javi should have for Lincoln or how much child support she should demand. For now, she’s just focusing on her career. Dr. Drew high fives her for being the only one of all the teen moms to graduate from a 4-year university, which makes Kail tear up.
Last night was the first Teen Mom 2 reunion episode of the season and featured Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer, the moms who need the most help. Too bad the doctor in the house – Dr. Drew Pinsky – didn’t offer them any guidance. Rather, he avoided any deep discussion with them and tried to convince everyone that David Eason has been a stabilizing force. Hang up the white coat, Dr. Drew, you’re done.
The reunion starts with all the girls on the couch watching highlights from the season. Dr. Drew asks what jumped out for them watching the recap. For Leah, it was hard to see Ali getting worse throughout the season. Kailyn Lowry says there hasn’t been an easy moment for her the entire season. Jenelle gives the non-answer that they can all learn from each other, which prompts Dr. Drew to bring up social media drama between Kail and Jenelle, who are now pretending to be in a better place (they’re also on opposite ends of the couch). Chelsea Houska, who also had her own issues with Jenelle, tries to avoid more Jenelle rage and simply says all the girls follow each other on Instagram and Twitter. Leah attempts to cut the tension by sharing how nice it is to have the other girls to talk to. Chelsea adds that if she needed something, she could talk to these girls. I just imagine the producers giving them a pep talk before going onstage: “Ok, girls, let’s all pretend we’re best friends and the greatest support for teen moms in their twenties is other teen moms in their twenties.”
This weekend Nathan was arrested in Myrtle Beach, SC for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, impairment and endangering himself and others. This is perfect timing for theTeen Mom 2 train wreck – today he and Jenelle are due back in court for a custody hearing related to Kaiser. Jenelle, mother of the century, is currently trying to secure full custody by proving Nathan is unfit. Which is sort of like Pot calling the Kettle’s bottom black!
Jenelle, David, the boys, and Maryssa are in the car headed to go fishing. Kaiser is screaming as usual and Jace joins in. David yells at Jace that he’s six years old and shouldn’t be screaming like a girl. I bet he also tells Jace not to do things that seem “gay.” By the time they get to the lake, Jenelle and David are both irritated with Kaiser’s squealing. Jenelle points her finger at him and yells at him to stop screaming, which obviously doesn’t work. David says he takes after his daddy, Nathan Griffith, who’s a “little screaming bitch.” Sounds like a more apt description of Jenelle. Jenelle swears they’re never taking Kaiser with them on the boat again because they can never do anything with him around. Did she expect that a toddler was going to be able to sit on a boat for a few hours and care at all about fishing?
