“Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah,” MTV tells Us Weekly. “They will continue to be a part of our MTV family, and we’re thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention.”
Maci, Catelynn, Amber, and Farrah all began their MTV careers back in 2009 by starring on the first season of 16 and Pregnant.
MTV has yet to announce the premiere date of Teen Mom‘s fourth and final season, but it is expected to air sometime this summer. A Teen Mom 3 is however in the works and will likely feature an all new cast from the upcoming season of 16 and Pregnant which premieres March 27.
As we’ve reported, Amber is currently engaged in a legal mess which includes very strict probation rules that might prohibit her from continuing on with the series. We have to wonder if Amber’s issues had anything to do with this news.
The 5’7″ Farrah, 20, who signed a deal with Models International last month, is “in talks with MTV producers” about a spinoff show based on her new life and career, according to the modeling agency.
“Farrah signed with us in February and will be featured in upcoming magazines as well as LAFashionWeke.com,” a rep for Models International tells E!. “We’re very excited to have her on board. She’s going to be doing commercial, print and brand name licensing.”
Allrighty! Some of Farrah’s first modeling photos are below!

It must be time for salary negotiations because rumors are popping up that Teen Mom 2 stars/train wrecks Leah Messer and Jenelle Evans are threatening to leave the show that made them thousandaires.
While, Jenelle no doubt needs the extra cash for her legal fees and tattoo habit, a source tells Reality Weekly that Leah has developed quite an ego since becoming “famous” and hilariously says that “She really has gotten a big head because of all the attention. A lot of people in Elk View joke that she’s like the redneck Kim Kardashian.” Does that mean fiancé Jeremy Calvertis her Kris Humphries? Will they get married for 72 hours?
To be fair, Leah has had a very difficult year; she had a miscarriage and was assaulted by a group of women. She feels she’s given a lot to the show, and the show owes her for her pain and suffering, including her divorce to Corey Simms. “Leah says she’s fed up with the interference in her life, and she can’t take any more.”
Jeremy still hasn’t appeared on the show, and it’s easy to see why. The source says, “It’s no wonder she’s cautious. She’s already been through more stress in a year then some people face in a lifetime.”
As for Jenelle, she gets brownie points for having her manager (yes, she has one) go on the record, with his actual name, to advocate for her raise. Her manager, Leo Daniels, says it’s time for more money: ”She needs to renegotiate because she’s not getting anything near what the other girls are getting, and she’s the highest rated Teen Mom.”
She’s the highest rated because no one can turn away. Like many cocky reality stars before her, Jenelle feels she has the upper hand in this negotiation. Some unnamed insider is quoted saying, “She feels certain that she deserves a raise, but there are plenty of other options out there. She will quit the show if she doesn’t get that extra money.”
Beware this strategy, ladies! The network will call your bluff and fire you. Just ask a few housewives how well this works. There are many other teen moms waiting in the wings and happy to replace you. I say keep that MTV salary. It’s more than most normal folks will ever see.

Aw, poor Leah! On last week’s Teen Mom2 reunion with Dr. Drew, Leah Messer cried when asked about her relationship with ex-husband and father of her twin girls, Corey Simms, and it turns out she’s got quite a few emotions about the men in her life.
A source close to Leah, 21, tells UsWeekly, “She misses Corey, and part of her wishes she could make things work. But another part of her loves Jeremy and wants to start a clean slate with him.”
This season, Leah finally confirmed the rumor that she had cheated on Corey a week before they got married in October 2010. While they attempted to work things out, the relationship ended and since Leah has been with now fiance Jeremy Calvert.
The source also reveals that Corey misses Leah as well, saying “Corey likes Jeremy because he’s good to his girls, but he’d take Leah back in a second.”
Leah‘s had a tough year: first she suffered a miscarriage, and recently was assaulted by three women who recognized her from the show. The source states that the January miscarriage “changed things” for Leah in regards to her feelings for Jeremy. “She took it as a sign that things might not be right.”
Per the source, the stress is putting strain on the relationship between the couple, and “Jeremy knows Leah isn’t as certain about their relationship now. Their engagement is definitely on a rocky path.”
In more amusing news, Jenelle Evans decided to spend her MTV money on a back tattoo which she revealed to all her Twitter followers. This is the second tattoo Jenelle has had done in the last few months, the first was a matching tattoo with her boyfriend of the most annoying catch phrase of our time, “YOLO.” Jenelle should have spent her tattoo money on her legal defense, she’s been in court so many times this year for drug possession and cyber stalking.
You be the judge of Jenelle’s investment below.

As reported, Amber, 21, was in hot water over failing to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing. In fact, Amber spoke to E! News, denying she failed to take the drug test, while other sources stated Amber did show up to be tested but waited over an hour and simply could not go.
“I would be in jail if I skipped” Amber told E!. “Honestly, I don’t give a s–t what people are saying…I’m doing what I have to do…they are not a concern of mine.”
Luckily for Amber, she faced a judge yesterday who chose to punish her by tackling on an extra 30 days of daily drug testing instead of sending her to prison. In addition to that, she is also required to re-read the drug court handbook and write a 500-word report on what is expected of her. For realz!
TMZ adds, as well as missing a drug test, Amber also failed to attend one of her AA meetings which is also a major no-no. Here’s to hoping Amber can finally get it together, though, something tells me…
Moving on to other troubled Teen Mom star,Jenelle Evans,who has also had issues with drugs as she is currently on probation for a previous drug violation.
According to the latest issue of Star magazine, Jenelle, 20, is still abusing drugs. The source? Her former boss James Duffy, who she is still engaged with in a legal war.
James told Star that he witnessed Jenelle drop an Ecstasy pill in early November, and saw her drunk and taking shots of E&J Brandy on a different night. “Around 2 or 3 a.m. that night, she snorted something in front of me,” said James, adding that Jenelle also told him she does drugs with her troubled on-and-off boyfriend Kieffer Delp. “When they got ‘down,’ they would snort Adderall ‘to pick them up,’” he said. “Jenelle did so much Adderall that her heart was pounding really hard, causing her to freak out.”
So, how is Jenelle passing her urine tests if she’s still on drugs? Well according to James, “Jenelle explained to me that the way she does drugs is that it only stays in your system for two to three days. She’ll do them on Friday knowing that she has to come in and do the test on Monday, because they schedule the days a week before.”

When most heard the very strict rules and guidelines laid out for Amber Portwood,via her probation, many assumed she would definitely break one of the rules at one point or another, but very few could have predicted she would be screwing up this quickly.
Just two weeks after a judge finally released her from jail to go live with her grandparents, the Teen Mom star has already broken one of her probation terms by failing to take a drug test.
According to TMZ, Amber, 21, has been doing great since her release, until Monday when she failed to provide a urine sample for her mandatory daily drug testing.
And those familiar with the law will tell you that a failure to provide a sample, automatically counts as a failed drug test, which could mean BIG trouble for Amber.
She was sentenced to serve five years in prison back in January for a drug conviction, with the judge suspending her sentence as long as she followed a very long list of rules and guidelines, which included home detention, a curfew, requirement to get a regular job, and enrollment in a halfway drug house.
Amber is due in court today for her weekly check-in, during which, she will be at the mercy of the judge. Legally the judge could decide to have her begin serving her five-year prison sentence, though that is unlikely to happen.

Another day, another drama, in the land of Teen Mom…
Vying with Amber Portwood for title of Most Incarcerated MTV Star, Jenelle Evans found herself back in the Brunswick County clink yesterday on charges of misdemeanor stalking. Eonline.com is reporting that the 20-year-old mom’s recent arrest is due to accusations made by her former boss James Duffy, which resulted in an arrest warrant.
Jenelle’s agent, Leo Daniels (remind me again why she needs an agent?) claims that Jenelle turned herself into authorities in order to clear her name after returning home from the Teen Mom reunion in New York City.
He tells E!, “Duffy filed cyberstalking charges against Jenelle. She has not posted anything about him in a long time. Duffy came up with these accusations…Jenelle was aware of the warrant because Duffy posted all about it on Facebook and Twitter on Friday. Jenelle was in New York over the weekend. When she returned home, she went up to see what was going on. She was read the charges and they let her go.”
Jenelle and her old boss have participated in a hateful merry-go-round of nasty Facebook and Twitter harassment after Duffy, allegedly, posted pictures online of Jenelle’s wild, party girl ways. As if anyone was shocked by that. Yesterday’s arrest marked the third time this year the young mom has been put behind bars…and it’s barely March! This time around, Jenelle was released a few hours after she was booked, having to post $1000 bond. She is due back in court on March 23.
Also speaking out on the arrest, is Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan (I do get why she needs a lawyer, just not an agent), who tells Radaronline.com, “She was arrested and posted a $1,000 unsecured bail.”
Dustin continues, insisting, “[Duffy]’s just retaliating against Jenelle. The charges have no merit. This is just absurd.”
“I’m not concerned with the affection on her probation,” he says about her current arrest.
Fear not though, Jenelle seems to at least have a sense of humor about the situation (although I am not sure that’s a good thing), tweeting yesterday, “Well I’m having a fantastic morning lmao. Bye bye twitter for a month :(.”

After being attacked outside a West Virginia movie theater by three women, Leah Messer is terrified to leave her house, according to sources!
Two weeks ago, Leah and her fiancé Jeremy Calvertwere walking in a parking lot, when three women approached her. “The women started screaming, ‘Look, it’s that bitch from Teen Mom!’” an insider tells In Touch Weekly. The women then followed the couple, and according to Leah, beat her “viciously,” bruising her face and chest.
After the incident, Leah has become seized by fear that something may happen to her again. “Leah’s now terrified to leave her home,” the insider explains. “There are just so many haters.”
The attack has left a precarious Leah, already distraught over a recent miscarriage, depressed and according to friends, has pushed her over the edge. “She is on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” the source adds. Hopefully things will improve for the mom of twins!
Moving on to other Teen Mom 2 news, Jenelle Evans is still dealing with custody issues! The tumultuous Jenelle, who after a string of recent arrests, confessed to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, now worries that the diagnosis will keep her from parenting Jace.
Jenelle has been seeing a doctor recently and is now on medication to help control her violent mood swings, which have contributed to her unruly and dangerous behavior in the past. But Jenelle is, surprisingly, thinking ahead and worrying that she won’t be capable of caring for Jace long-term!
“She is really, really scared,” an insider shares with Reality Weekly. “Jenelle is worried she’ll end up going off the deep end. It’s her nightmare that she is going to end up in the psych ward.” Jenelle’s fear is exacerbated by her brother’s diagnosis. “My brother, he has bipolar and schizophrenia,” Jenelle recently confessed to Dr. Mohammed, the Medical Director at Malibu Horizon Drug Alcohol Rehab Treatment Center
Jenelle is so concerned about her mental stability, she is wondering if she should relinquish custody permanently! “It’s one of the reasons she’s wondered if she should give up Jace,” the source admits. “She’s that scared she won’t be able to take care of him down the road.”
Apparently, Jenelle’s fears have been haunting her in her dreams and she grows more afraid by the day. “She’s been calling herself crazy,” the source adds. “She spends a lot of time in tears.”
Friends also worry about Jenelle’s long-term mental health. “She has always been off,” says a former pal. “She gets something on her mind and gets very obsessed with it. She can’t sleep or calm down.”
Hopefully both Leah and Jenelle can get their demons and behaviors under control for the sake of their children! At least Jenelle has the support of her mother, Barbara Evans, to raise Jace.
And finally, while the second season of Teen Mom 2 only concluded last week, MTV has already began filming on a new season of the series! Kailyn Lowrytweeted the photo below this week which shows MTV camera crews filming her along with her friends. No word yet on when the new season will air.
As we reported yesterday, MTV has also greenlighted Teen Mom 3 which will likely feature some of the cast members from the upcoming 16 and Pregnant season.
ARE LEAH’S FEARS JUSTIFIED? SHOULD JENELLE GIVE UP CUSTODY OF JACE OR JUST TRY TO MANAGE HER MENTAL ILLNESS? DO YOU BELIEVE JENELLE WILL BE ABLE TO GET HER ACT TOGETHER AND BE A MOTHER?
Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
