Last night, we all got treated to a bonus episode of Teen Mom 2 and if you happened to miss it, I’m here to give you all the details on what went down.
Kailyn Lowry has waited six long years but she is finally finished with school! As much as she wants to focus on that achievement, Jo has a focus of his own and that’s getting 50/50 custody of Isaac in place. He calls his dad and explain that he tried to talk to Kail about the whole thing first but since she didn’t react well to that and refused to hear him out, he had no choice but to file papers with his lawyer. His dad hopes that it will be resolved before they even get to court but Jo doesn’t look so sure.
Last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2 has given us the long-awaited conclusion of Jenelle Evans’ court battle for Jace. Spoiler alert: Jenelle doesn’t exactly get her way. Speaking of court, Kailyn Lowry thought she could catch a break from it now that her divorce is finalized but her ex, Jo Rivera, has different plans and she finds herself speed dialing a lawyer again. The other Teen Moms have decidedly less drama so let’s start with them.
Life is good for Chelsea DeBoer and husband Cole as they plan for their upcoming wedding reception and settle into life as a family of four. Chelsea meets her Dad downtown at her Stepmom’s shop to pick up the kids after Randy watched them last night. They talk about how Aubree is going to see Adam Lind for Father’s Day but Chelsea isn’t so sure she will actually do anything outside of seeing him. On the drive home, Chelsea asks Aubree if she’s excited to see her Dad and she says he always sleeps when she is there and never plays with him.
Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 left me with more questions than answers when it comes to the state of affairs for Kailyn Lowry, Briana DeJesus and Jenelle Evans. It seems like everything is always up in the air and nothing is ever resolved in their lives.
Starting with Kail, the ups and downs with ex-husband Javi Marroquin continue and ever since he filed for child support, they have been down. Despite the tension, Kail claims she is doing her best to make sure he sees the boys but when he can’t pick them up at the spot she designated, that quickly goes out the window. She decides to meet him in a parking lot that’s convenient for her but after a few texts from him, pulls off angrily and explains in detail to the boys that “Javi” (not Dad) doesn’t have the right car with car seats to pick them up so they have to come to school with her.
Teen Mom 2 is trucking along and it’s a lot of the same old same old. Kailyn Lowryand ex Javi Marroquin were on good terms as of last episode, but we all knew that wouldn’t last long and low and behold, it hasn’t thanks to Javi requesting child support. Briana DeJesus is still feeling stressed and overwhelmed that baby daddy Luis isn’t stepping up to the plate and having an upcoming baby shower doesn’t change that. Leah Messer is seeing Ali’s specialist to get some answers on her recent breathing issues and Chelsea DeBoer is guiding Aubree through her last day of first grade. Finally, we have Jenelle Evans and the never ending drama between her and mother Barb about seeing Jace. It’s not quite as bad as last week’s blow up but clearly, there are plenty of leftover feelings in play.
Starting with Kail and Javi, Kail decides that since they are cool (for now), Javi can come over and spend some time with the boys. How nice of her! She is also relieved he’s coming over because she has a lot to do. While she starts to paint the baby’s room, Javi takes Isaac and Lincoln outside and helps Isaac learn to ride his bike. It’s going great and Javi has to ask Kail to come outside to see. She agrees but tells him to make it quick. Once she sees Isaac riding, she is super excited for him and Javi dutifully runs beside him in the street, making sure he’s safe from falling.
This is Jenelle Evans‘ third? fourth? engagement but the Teen Mom 2 star is confident she’ll make it down the aisle to everlasting love with David Easonso long as the TV cameras are rolling forever and ever. Ain’t that sweet!
Jenelle believes the secret to making their relationship work is because she and Daviddo everything together. Except effective parenting. Like, he’s even helping her launch and produce her upcoming makeup line! Dishing out relationship advice, Jenelle opines: “You stay busy, and if you stay busy there’s nothing really to argue about.” Too bad we see you – we see you on the TV!
We all tend to roll our eyes when reality stars cry “bad editing,” but in the case of Chelsea Houska, the woman has a point! If you’ve been watching Teen Mom 2 this season, you know that Chelsea’s scenes with her family have been brief and very laid-back. Instead of showcasing Chelsea’s happily-ever-after, the show is trying to stir up some drama and storyline where there isn’t one, according to Chelsea.
The Teen Mom 2 star took to Twitter during last night’s episode to share her increasing frustration over the way her scenes and interactions with daughter Aubree, 7, are being edited this season.
I haven’t seen the viewer numbers for last night’s MTV VMAs yet, but I wonder if it’s down by a lot compared to last year, since some genius decided to put it on the same night as the Game of Thrones season finale! Because of that, I skipped the VMAs for the first time in years, but priorities. Game of Thrones even trumped reality TV viewing last night. #sorrynotsorry
Anywhoodle. Here’s a few snaps of the few reality stars who showed up for the big night in L.A. Mostly Teen Mom stars, like Jenelle Evans, Gary Shirley, Leah Messer, Amber Portwood (and her new guy) and Farrah Abraham, who brought along daughter Sophia. Check out the photos below (including Nev Schulman, Christina Milian and more) and tell us which you look you like the best.
Did you watch the show last night? Did I miss anything good?
If you’re a Teen Mom 2 fan (or not), you likely saw the unintended reveal of Kailyn Lowry’s pregnancy news as it happened on Twitter, courtesy of fellow cast mate, Jenelle Evans. Tonight you get to see what happened behind the scenes. Well, whatever Kail is willing to show, that is.
Kail maintains that she didn’t announce her pregnancy on social media because she wanted control of her own story and more importantly, she hadn’t passed the 20 week scan to make sure everything is ok. I can respect that –while she did sign up for a reality show, I do think some things are a given when it comes to privacy and pregnancy is one of them. Too bad Jenelle did not get the memo on that one and tweeted Kail congrats on her third pregnancy, blowing her whole cover. Naturally, Kail was pissed and wanted to get to the bottom of it. Jenelle said the MTV crew told her but when Kail confronted them, she decided that was unlikely she’s right but more on that in a second.
