Last night's episode of Teen Mom 2 temporarily humanized our snarkiness as Leah Calvert learned the realities of Ali's muscular dystrophy.
Kail Lowry heads to an ultrasound appointment sans Javi Marroquin because Jo Rivera won't let her move out of state with Isaac and now she's all allllloneee! Apparently she's been emotionally eating to drown her sorrows because the doctor warns her that gaining a pound and a half per week isn't a good idea. "Lay off the fettuccine alfredo," he instructs.
Everything looks healthy but Kail is waiting until Javi can be there to find out the sex. Kail calls Javi from the car and complains that she's soooo stressed planning a wedding while pregnant. Maybe postpone the wedding until after you've had the baby then? Just a thought – especially since they're already legally married for the benefits and stuff.
Then Kail and Jo have a major custody blowup. Kail is now refusing to bring Isaac to Jo's parents' if he's not home. On their custody exchange day, Kail learns from Jo that he's running late so she calls Javi – in front of Isaac – to whine about what a terrible, negligent parent Jo is. Nice Kail.
Anyway, this time Jenelle is like trying to prove to us that she's turned her life around, is with a decent guy, and is ready to like do the whole mom thing for real. Just ignore everything you're about to see on this season of Teen Mom 2, mmmkay.
Unfortunately for Jenelle, nothing she does is without drama. In this case she's furious that so-called friends revealed the baby's sex to In Touch Weekly. “It’s a boy,” a source close to Nathan Griffithshared.
“Jenelle and Nathan already have the name picked out, it’s KaiserGriffith. She already had the names picked out, if it was a girl it would have been Lydia Marie. No middle name yet for Kaiser.” Kaiser… Hmmm…
The Sister Wives are totally winning. They're able to run their fingers through Kody's luscious locks every four days – AND a whopping 2.415 million tuned in this week. That's nearly a millionmore viewers than last week! Kris Jenner becomes wife number five in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
It's no surprise that Jenelle Evans is a string of contradictions, but her decision to get pregnant again with newest boyfriend Nathan Griffith is truly unbelievable. Especially considering she still has yet to regain custody of son Jace and she underwent an abortion four months ago!
“I panicked — I’d just gotten off heroin, I was very skinny and unhealthy, I wasn’t stable,” she tells In Touch. “But I hope people will see where I was then and where I am now and why I decided it’s OK to keep this baby.” So, Jenelle expects us to believe in less than four months, with a man she barely knows, she's totally OK now?
Last night the ladies of Teen Mom 2continued to mope through the agonies of motherhood – well except for Jenelle Evans who promptly stored 'have a child' in the largely non-functioning corner of her brain (right beside 'multiple arrests, including a felony') and went on as if she had not a care in the world.
Kail Lowry is feuding with Jo over their custody agreement with Isaac. Kail just doesn't see the logic in anyone disagreeing with her, but is meeting in court before a judge. Javi warns her to keep her temper in check. Kail, who spent the day therapeutically painting pottery coasters for the house she hates but is forced to live in because of Jo's selfishness, promises Javi she'll be calm on the stand.
The two meet in court where Kail is hoping her fabulously constructed donut bun will sway the judge in her favor (her dress is cute, so props for that!), but unfortunately due to a jurisdiction error the case was transferred and now will take a couple more months.
Kail Lowry is taking a lot of heat for trying to take her son Isaac away from his father Jo Rivera.
The Teen Mom 2 star, who is now married to Javi Marroquin and has another son Lincoln, wants to move two hours away to Delaware where Javi is stationed. Jo is contesting this claiming he will be too far away from Isaac.
"It's super annoying that everyone thinks I'm taking Isaac away from his father. If you know me, you know I would NEVER do that. My mom did that to me," Kail complained on twitter. I'm imagining her making a pouty face as she writes this.
On Sunday,Real Housewives of Atlanta logged 3.695 million viewers. That's down from last week's 4.187 million but enough to make RHOA the top cable telecast (ratings wise) of the night. Not at the top? Keeping Up with the Kardashians! Season nine premiered to 2.569 million on Sunday and 2.142 on Monday. Ouch! Sister Wives saw a significant drop (2.0 to 1.44) this week.
On Tuesday, Teen Mom 2 returned for its fifth season, to the dismay of many Reality Tea readers. However the show garnered 2.756 million viewers and was the top cable telecast (ratings wise) of the night. Also, Dance Moms was watched by 2.010 million, and Shahs of Sunset saw its second lowest number of the season with 1.054 million.
I guess I should have braced myself for the return of Teen Mom 2. I'd forgotten that with it would come a new media hurricane of all its "stars." I'm used to Jenelle Evans being in the tabloids 24/7/365 (I'm so 2005), but I kind of forget about the other girls when they aren't stored in my DVR.
Perhaps I need to be grateful for non-Jenellecreated drama, but I feel like it's the same story line over and over again with these girls. Guess what? Chelsea Houska is still pretending she's over douchebag and baby daddy Adam Lind while claiming that she doesn't receive help from her ever-present father. Hey, no shame in taking money from the Bank of Dad if he gives it willingly, right…even if you do have all that MTV money for doing nothing more than being totally immature, irresponsible and overly dramatic. That last sentence is not a dig a Chelsea. It's a dig at all of them.
