Ugh – after wisely phasing the original Teen Mom out of the line-up following one trainwreck after another from the cast, we could only hope MTV had plans to drop the Teen Mom series completely. No such luck!
RadarOnline is reporting that MTV has started casting for Teen Mom 3 which will follow a whole group of moms from this season’s16 & Pregnant. Although, this time MTV has an agenda to cast more stable girls!
Mackenzie Douthit, a former cheerleader from Oklahoma has a son named Gannon (yes, for real) and she is engaged to baby daddy Josh McGee. “She comes from a stable family and seems to have her life in order,” the source says. “MTV wanted someone like that.” Wait – they aern’t looking for Jenelle Evans, Jr?
Alexandria Sekella is from Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella. She is memorable because she considered giving her daughter up for adoption but changed her mind. Alexandria also satisfied the crazy daddy drama, as her former fiancé Matt McCann entered rehab last December for drug addiction.
Regardless both girls are said to be thrilled about having their lives documented for our viewing pleasure. “Both of them are excited to be on Teen Mom 3,” the source says. “It’ll be quite a journey. Viewers loved them and can’t wait to see more.”
Well, hopefully they’ll have their lives a little more on track than certain current Teen Moms!
WILL YOU BE WATCHING TEEN MOM 3? ARE MACKENZIE AND ALEXANDRIA GOOD CHOICES FOR THE SHOW?
When Teen Moms come to mind, usually there are a few (okay, one or two) that give us faith in the humanity of our nation’s youth, while the others are just famewhore train wrecks. This blog post is about Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra and Jenelle Evans. I’ll let you figure out who falls into which category…
While both Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout have expressed their desire to remain in the public eye with spinoffs, Catelynn and Tyler remain relatively under the radar. Viewers have championed the pair who made the undoubtedly difficult choice to place their daughter up for adoption (because that never seems to happen on the MTV hit) while overcoming major family strife to make a better life together.
Remember when Amber Portwood was evicted while in jail for allegedly lying about her income to qualify for low-income state subsidized housing? Well, the government of Indiana is reportedly furious that the Teen Momtrainwreck star conned them and they want their money back! Amber was renting a home subsidized by the state’s Rental Housing Tax Credit Program. A program that provides lower-income housing for those in need.
Amber under-estimated her income by about $270,000 to qualify for the program, claiming she made only $10k last year. Unfortunately, Amber earned a whopping $280,000. Sadly, I imagine most of it was spent on legal fees! Upon learning of her income discrepancy scam, the company she was renting from promptly evicted Amber.
And took the matter to court! Predictably Amber never even bothered to reply to the company’s lawsuit, which accused her of lying about her income. In response an Indian judge ruled in the company’s favor and according to TMZ, ordered Amber pay the company $673 within 30 days or face further legal action. Oh, Amber…
Teen Mom 2′sJenelle Evans has had her fair share of bumps in the road: girl fights, drug accusations, bad relationships and the like. But, it looks like the reality starlet is finally turning things around and is now officially off probation.
A “good friend” opened up this week about Jenelle’s troubled past and claims that Jenelle would use cutting as a way to deal with her inner turmoil. So, naturally the concerned friend ran the media to sell the story. And instead of doing it anonymously, she shared her name and even did a video interview for Radar Online. With friends like that….
Tori Rhyne claims that Jenelle would often use razors and scissors to cut herself to deal with the family drama going on around her. “They’re all crazy. It just messed with her head.”
She continued: “Sometimes you [could] see the blood and stuff.” “I would actually slap her cuts that she had on her wrist. I know when I did that it was gonna hurt her a little bit.”
So if this was in the past and Jenelle is supposedly turning her life around, why speak out on it now? We have drug use claims and cutting claims. Does it seem like people are trying to sabotage her chances of getting Jace back?
TELL US – DO YOU THINK THESE GIRLS HAVE ANY FRIENDS WHO WOULDN’T SELL THEM OUT FOR A FEW BUCKS OR FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME? DO YOU THINK MTV SHOULD INCLUDE FREE THERAPY IN THE TEEN MOM CONTRACTS?
Those Teen Moms. They’re like future-Housewives-in-training.
After being accused of having a nasty drug habit that includes LSD and prescription drugs and then breaking up with her allegedly-abusive boyfriend, Jenelle Evans is going to try to win back custody of her son, Jace.
Jenelle’s lawyer tells Radar Online that the Teen Mom 2 star is trying to straighten out her life and will request that the judge let her off probation early. To show how serious she is, she even deleted her Twitter account, y’all!
Her attorney says “Jenelle is trying to straighten her life out and the first step she’s taking is going to court and requesting that a judge let her out of probation. Jenelle has been doing really well. She is doing everything she is supposed to do and I’ve seen a big improvement in her life.”
Didn’t that violent drama with Gary Head just go down like two days ago? I suppose, two days is like two years passing by in Teen Mom Land.
Her mom has temporary custody of her son, but Jenelle is hoping to regain custody soon. “Nothing has been filed but Jenelle has expressed an interest in getting custody of Jace back. She would really like to have Jace back with her again.”
Moving along. In other Teen Mom news, Leah Messer’s friends are concerned that she rushed into her marriage to Jeremy Calvert.
After just eight months of dating, Leah and Jeremy tied the knot last week (in a private ceremony with cameras rolling) and now her friends are speaking out, claiming they are worried that Leah is still much too in love with ex-husband Corey Simms for her marriage to work.
Her “friend” says she’s settling with Jeremy because he’s safe: “Leah isn’t in love with Jeremy the way she loved Corey. She trusts Jeremy and knows he’s good for her daughters. Right now, that’s more important than how she feels.”
I’m sure that makes Jeremy feel special. Although, Leah did admit just a month ago that she still had feelings for Corey, so it shouldn’t be too big of a shock to hear.
Speaking of Leah’s twin daughters, Ali has just hit an important milestone. Sources report that the developmentally-delayed two year old has started walking!
“Ali is able to walk when someone stands behind her while holding her hand. It’s a major step toward walking solo. ”
The toddler is excited to finally start running around with her sister, Aleeah. “She wants to be able to run around and play with Aleeah!”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JENELLE EVANS SHOULD REGAIN CUSTODY OF HER SON? HAS SHE GROWN UP AT ALL? DO YOU THINK LEAH AND JEREMY ARE DOOMED TO FAIL?
Jenelle Evans is in a hot crazy mess again! It seems the Teen Mom 2 star has broken up with most recent boyfriend Gary Head. Instead of doing so in private like, you know, a normal person; Jenelle and Gary took their break-up and subsequent feuding to the capital of Famewhore Nation – Twitter.
Apparently things started to go bad for the lovebirds over Gary’s alleged cheating and Jenelle’s refusal to give up Kieffer Delp. Jenelle believes Gary slept with her former BFF Tori Rhyne and Gary discovered she was texting Kieffer in secret.
Just one day after Jenelle Tweeted about how much she loved Gary, “I love my boyfriend/future fiancé TO DEATHHHHHH @gary_head never have I loved someone this much <3;” things changed drastically!
The very next day, Jenelle tweeted, “Singleeeeee :),” followed by, “I’m very depressed me and Gary broke up for good.” Gary had a different opinion. Jenelle’s former true love was apparently singing a good riddance to bad rubbish sort of tune as he announced: “I can honestly say WTF made me stay so long. Some people will NEVER change not even for the ones they love.” Sometimes 140 characters is all you need to get your point across, I suppose.
Sadly, all was not well that ended well. Yesterday Jenelle and Gary’s twitters erupted with accusations and photos – including a video Jenelle posted singing about Gary.
Jenelle told the Examiner.com that Gary – a marine, was physically abusive towards her. “He basically slapped me in my face, and pinned me to my bed,” she reveals. “The way he slammed me down my jaw got popped out of place, and he ended up punching me with his palm.” Adding that she had to “get ice for my cheek bone all night.”
Jenelle claims MTV cameras witnessed the event and felt her bruised cheek. She called the police, but opted not to press charges. “[I didn’t want to] ruin his career,” she explained. In addition to the interview, Jenelle posted a video of herself singing the The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’ “Face Down,” which is about domestic abuse. That scintillating video is below!
Jenelle also alleges that Gary is $9,000 in debt and about to be kicked out of the marines. Gary has his own perspective on what happened, of course, and denies ever hitting Jenelle or getting physical with her. He confirmed she called the cops, but says charges were never filed because the police didn’t believe Jenelle’s story!
And just days after a report of Jenelle’s dangerous drug use, Gary regaled the twitterverse with a whole host of stories about how Jenelle continues to abuse drugs and knows how to beat her court-ordered drug tests! “she knows when she’s gonna piss,” he revealed. Gary claims Jenelle is still getting high “everynight” on “pills. Acid, heroin, shrooms, an drinking. Drugs that barely stay in the system.” Wow!
Even worse, Gary says Jenelle is abusing prescription pills and gets them from a friend named Nicholas, “hydrocodones every night. How do you get 120 month?” Gary Tweeted. Gary also claims Jenelle is not taking her bi-polar medication. “I tell her every day to take her Meds but there’s always an excuse ex. They make my head hurt or it takes 1 month 4 it to work,” he wrote.
And lastly Gary made it known that he is in possession of an incriminating video starring Jenelle, which he will not be releasing. For her sake, of course. “I don’t want to embarrass her. And Im NOT going to SELL HER OUT,” he tweeted. Gary insisted Star Magazine had contacted him for a story about Jenelle, but he refused to sell her out to the tabloids for money.
Gary says he defended Jenelle against several accusations, including telling people she was doing well when it wasn’t true! “I lied by telling everyone she is doing great when she’s horrible.” Adding, “I dated her for 4 months. I always lied and stuck up for her. It’s time for the truth.” So, um… I’m guessing these two are done for good?
Jenelle’s co-star Kailyn Lowry offered her support during the break-up. Reminding her to be positive. “As much as it hurts, surround yourself with your friends & keep yourself occupied. It’ll help, even a little.”

The local paper states that the intimate affair was officiated by the Reverend Marty Gute, a city commissioner and minister in Ashland. It was attended by a very small number of family, including Leah’s twin daughters, with ex-husband Corey Simms, and close friends…as well as MTV camera crews, of course!
Reverend Gute reveals that he received a phone call from MTV producers on Tuesday, hoping for permission to film inside the chapel. He recalls, “When I asked what was going on, they said it was for the Leah Simms wedding, and that name didn’t ring a bell at first.” However, when Gute told his wife and daughter about the phone call, they both knew exactly who he would be marrying.
“I think they wanted to keep it out of the news, but the producer said he knew it would hit Facebook soon,” Gute continued. “He asked my daughter not to tweet about it, though.” He also believes that the couple will have a larger, more public wedding in the near future. Of course they will!
Citing Leah and Jeremy’s nuptials as one of the most exciting he’s officiated, Gute is not stranger to marrying pseudo-celebs. He tells the newspaper, “We’ve had two couples on Jerry Springer — one from Boyd County and one from Ashland.” Yup, it sounds about right to add Leah into that mix.
Reverend Gute states that the mothers of the bride and groom served as witnesses, and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time. The wedding was scheduled to begin at 3pm, but apparently didn’t start until 4:30 due to the couple attaining their marriage license at the Boyd County Courthouse and procuring their rings at a local pawn shop pre-ceremony. Needless to say that MTV cameras were on-hand to film those things as well.
Regardless, “Everybody was happy and joyful and took a ton of pictures,” exclaims the Reverend. No word yet on how Corey or his camo hat are feeling about the newlyweds!
