Last night’s Teen Mom 2 was all about holiday hoopla, reconciliations and jail bait. Corey, Leah and the twins enjoy their birthday and first Christmas at home, while Kailyn struggles with sharing Isaac over the holiday. Chelsea can’t do much more than shoot googly eyes at Adam, while Jenelle tries her darndest to bail Kieffer out of jail in time for Christmas. Awww, the gift that keeps on giving… Ugg, ugg, and more uggs…literally.
Chelsea talks to Adam for the first time since their big fight after her surgery. Adam has a new job, and Chelsea wants to the pair cease fire before the holidays. Her mom is trying to be supportive and allow Chelsea to invite Adam over to the family’s Christmas. Adam comes to take Chelsea and Aubree to pick out a tree, and he reveals that his new job provides health benefits for Aubree as well as his child support will be garnished from his paycheck. That’s a start at least!

First up is a not so shocking report by OK! Magazine which states Jenelle Evans continues to choose partying over her son Jace. If you recall, Jenelle’s mom Barbara Evanscurrently has custody of her 2-year-old son.
While Jenelle has publicly claimed she is working hard to regain custody of her son, her actions are proving otherwise. “Her relationship with her mother is terrible. She has almost no real relationship with her son. She’s not a bad person, but she’s acting like an idiot right now,” says Sarah Walker, a former friend of Jenelle’s.
And despite spending 30 days in rehab last year, Jenelle is telling people she still loves to party. “She brags about it,” states Sarah. “It’s really a shame because she really is such a smart girl. But the cameras follow her everywhere on this tiny island and she thinks she’s above the law and untouchable.”
Jenelle has also reportedly “bragged to everyone on [Oak Island] that she went into rehab for the publicity and that MTV thought it would help her image.” Yikes.
Moving on to another Teen Mom that continues to make bad decisions a.k.a. Chelsea Houska. According to OK!, Chelsea’s troubled baby daddyAdam Lindcontinues to be a screw up.
The latest? Adam, who has previously been arrested for underage drinking, reckless driving and burglary, just finished serving a jail sentence! On Nov. 25, Adam began serving a court-ordered 30 day sentence for driving with a revoked license and speeding.
“He also seems to have a drinking problem,” says an insider. “He was court-ordered to attend AA but never went.”
The insider, however, claims that despite his behavior on the MTV hit show Adam really loves his daughter Aubree. “His worst fear is that one of these days Chelsea is going to start listening to her father,” say the source. “He’s scared she’ll dump him for good and take the baby.” Might not be such a bad idea…
A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

Amber Portwood continues to remain in Indiana’s Madison County Jail after spending the holidays there, but things are not going well for the reality star who is now on suicide watch.
Amber is expected to stay behind bars until January 27th after she was locked up for probation violations and being found with over 40 pills for a controlled substance. According to sources, Amber, who testified last week that she felt “exploited” by appearing on Teen Mom and wants off the show, is being brutally harassed while incarcerated for her appearance on the reality show!
MailOnline is reporting that the 21-year-old Amber is having a horrible experience behind bars — which is the idea since it’s, you know, a punishment. “She’s barely eaten or had any sleep in over a week and she’s constantly being harassed in jail because of Teen Mom,” an insider reports.
“Amber thought because she was a celebrity she’d get out of jail within a few hours like Lindsay Lohan, but she definitely had a wake up call and hasn’t stopped crying since being locked up.” Unfortunately, Circuit Court Judge David Happe decided Amber should stay in the facility until her next hearing.
Faced with a month in jail (and possibly more) Amber has become more “depressed and alone” than ever after being constantly made fun of by other inmates. “She has barely eaten or slept in a full week after one girl purposely knocked over her food tray and another inmate threw toilet water in her face while she was trying to sleep.”
“Amber has already been moved twice from two other cell blocks because all the inmates were threatening her and she was scared she’d get beat up,” the insider continues. Because of the pressures she is now facing behind bars, “Amber recently told the guard if she was sent to prison she would kill herself which put the Teen Mom on temporary suicide watch.”
Adding to her volatile situation an insider reports that the “really depressed” Amber is without her psych meds because the jail allegedly “won’t give her any prescription medication for her anxiety.” Even worse for poor Amber she had no visitors on Christmas Day since she is only allowed visitors on Saturdays and Christmas fell on Sunday this year. Her mother Tonya has been her only visitor since her stay and she has not seen her daughter.
Amber reportedly called her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley, but the conversation did not go well. “Amber called Gary and Leah on Christmas morning and had a meltdown on the phone after hearing Gary’s new girlfriend was spending the holiday with her daughter,” the insider revealed. “She cursed out Gary saying it was his fault she was in jail, but Gary told Amber she got what she deserved and hung up on her.”
“Amber feels threatened that she is being replaced as Leah’s mom and she didn’t even have a chance to buy her daughter Christmas gifts before going to jail.”
“Gary thinks Amber being in jail for a long period of time is a good thing for her, he thinks she needs to finally learn her lesson and suffer the consequences.” Amber’s mother does not agree — she believes leaving reality TV behind is the right choice for Amber and that to get her life back on track she needs to leave the show. She is working vehemently to get Amber released from her MTV contract!
“Amber’s mom [Tonya] said the only way she’ll help her get out is if she quits the show so they’re currently negotiating with MTV trying to get her out of her contract,” the insider adds. “I really think this is the final straw for Amber, she’s quitting Teen Mom for good.” A photo of Amber and Tonya leaving court is below.

DOES AMBER DESERVE TO SERVE TIME? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL LEAVE THE SHOW?

While many of you have expressed a love/hate relationship with Teen Mom 2 (and I can’t say I blame you), I can say with great confidence that all who watched Tuesday’s episode were thrilled to see that Leah Messer and Corey Simms’ daughter Ali wasn’t suffering from brain abnormalities which could lead to mental incapacity. While developmentally she is behind her twin Aleeah, she is healthy and doing well. In a recent interview, Leah opens up to Life and Style about getting the good news.
Upon hearing the diagnosis the young mother remembers, “I was relieved. The worst thing I could’ve heard would be that there’s something wrong with Aliannah’s brain.” Leah reveals it was difficult to mask her fear in front of her twin daughters, stating, “It was pretty hard and emotional as a mom to know that something could be wrong with my child.” Of Ali, who is continuing with physical therapy, Leah exclaims, “She’s doing great!”
Coy with the magazine about her new love, Jeremy Calvert– the guy she met and moved in with in a matter of months – Leah reveals, “Jeremy and I do talk about getting engaged.” Do tell!
And tell she does! Of course, by “she” I mean her ex-husband Corey’s new girlfriend Summer Taverez who gives an exclusive interview to HollywoodLife.com in an effort to jump start her fifteen minutes because apparently her plan of just dating Corey for fame didn’t work.
Summer begins in June (sorry, couldn’t resist), “I think Corey would be very supportive of [Leah's potential engagement]. He likes Jeremy a lot. Jeremy is a good guy.” Summer tells the site, “Him and Jeremy get along great. Actually especially just with me just hanging out with him, I was really surprised how they get along great.” I am the last one to talk smack about someone’s grammar (as you all know mine isn’t always well good!), but really?
“They co-parent very good. Corey gets the girls when he is supposed to and then Leah has them,” the paramour shares. Summer even discusses her first meeting with Corey’s ex-wife, recalling, “[Leah] was polite. She said ‘Hi.’ Jeremy and Corey talked a lot because they’re cool with each other. It wasn’t awkward or anything.” Teen Mom Swingers? MTV, are you paying attention?
Continuing her love fest for her — follow me — new boyfriend’s ex-wife’s maybe future fiance, Summer concludes that Jeremy is great because “the way he treats Leah and the girls is awesome.” Awe. Some. Summer, I think I hear a clock ticking… fourteen, thirteen, twelve…
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SUMMER’S INTERVIEW? SHOULD SHE BE DISCUSSING LEAH’S BUSINESS? DO YOU BELIEVE THINGS BETWEEN THE COUPLES ARE AS CHUMMY AS SHE’S MAKING IT SOUND?
It appears that whole minor being locked up in jail thingy and not being able to see her child is having a major impact on Amber Portwood.
The Teen Mom star, who remains in jail since being locked up two weeks ago for violating her probation, made some startling revelations during a recent court appearance.
The Herald Bulletin reports that during her court hearing last week an Indiana judge ruled that Amber, 21, remain in jail during the holidays until her hearing in January.
In addition to violating her probation by failing to submit to drug tests, not getting her GED or completing anger management classes, Amber is also accused of new charges — committing battery (stemming from a recent restaurant fight) and possession of a controlled substance (cops found her with over 40 pills without a prescription).
Amber testified that upon leaving a Malibu rehab facility this summer, she saw a medical doctor for back pain and other issues. The doctor prescribed hydrocodone which she admitted she began to abuse. According to Amber, the medication contributed to the probation violations and new offenses.
Amber then made a shocking revelation when she testified that she felt pressured and exploited through her work with MTV. “I want to quit, and I will,” she said of her participation on the hit — Teen Mom.
Her attorney, Evan Broderick, added that his client longs to return to a normal life. Interesting though I’m not certain quitting the show will help with most of the issues she is facing. Amber, who attempted suicide back in June, has revealed she is still suicidal and has been diagnosed with extreme bipolar disorder.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON AMBER WANTING TO QUIT THE SHOW? DO YOU THINK THAT WILL HELP HER STRAIGHTEN HER LIFE? DOES TEEN MOM EXPLOIT THE GIRLS?
The girls of Teen Mom 2 are at it again. They make a good decision, then they make two bad decisions. They seem to be on the right track, then they derail faster than Chelsea can whine that Adam’s changed. And the guys? Oh the guys! I know boys mature slower than girls, but COME. ON. It’s time to step up to the plate, with everyone acting like adults. There are children involved, after all.
We rejoin Jenelle Evans as she moves back in with mom Barbara after filing domestic violence charges against Kieffer. She is trying to redeem her failing grades and focus on her upcoming nineteenth birthday. Her mother seems passively supportive of her daughter’s efforts, but she is concerned that Kieffer will throw her back off course. The two both agree that Jenelle spending time with son Jace is the right thing to do.

While I hope that all RT readers are enjoying a wonderful holiday, Teen Mom alum Amber Portwood spent her Christmas behind bars. It’s much sadder and not nearly as hilarious as these posts should be.
After facing multiple violations, the young mother found herself in jail due to her failure to comply with the terms of her probation. On December 19, Amber was charged with possession as well as reportedly refusing to adhere to a mandatory urine sample.
TMZ.com is reporting that probation officers visited Amber on December 16 for failing to keep a court mandated appointment. An affidavit provided by Anderson, Indiana policeman Sgt. John Branson reveals that Amber was found in a “very groggy” state. Branson continues that officers found a bottle of mixed controlled substance pills for which Amber could not provide prescriptions. Amber cited that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.” She’s got a housekeeper?
According to the site, officers discovered “32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and then 1 pill they were unable to identify.” Amber remains in custody until her hearing on January 13. MTV, please stop celebritizing these girls’ lives. God knows she’d probably be in a very similar situation if she’d never darkened the door of the network’s season-wide public service announcement… but at least she wouldn’t have banked full of extra funds with which to ruin her life, as well as the life of her precious toddler.
Of course, while you and yours were chowing down on turkey, dressing and (in my case) killer lasagna, TMZ has obtained Amber’s Christmas slammer menu. The website reveals that while we were enjoying bounties of deliciousness with family and friends, poor Amber and her fellow inmates were feasting on “turkey sausage pizza” (which was described as ‘a meat-like substance on top of the pizza’), a side of carrots (cold, not steamed), peas and some pineapple.”
Wow and wow. While I’d like to funny (and I do firmly believe that pineapple was a missing and necessary staple of my Christmas smorgasbord), it hurts my heart that anyone, including the awful Amber – who needs to serve her time and change her life — isn’t getting the precious time with loved ones I’ve been allotted. #blessings
Here’s hoping you and yours are reveling in this wonderful time, burying the hatchet and savoring your time with those you hold most dear!
THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S INCARCERATION? DO YOU BELIEVE ALL OF THOSE PILLS WERE PRESCRIBED TO HER? AS THIS ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS AMBER’S CHRISTMAS DINNER, WHAT DID YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ENJOY OVER THE WEEKEND?
Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah. MTV, as well as teenage pregnancy awareness groups, often advocate that the Teen Mom spin-offs (along with their 16 and Pregnant predecessors) are doing an amazing job warning young girls about the perils of practicing unsafe sex and having babies too early. While that may be very true, it’s ironic that the same girls featured on these shows as “examples of what not to do” are the ones who are learning nothing from their current situations.
Case in point, Hollybaby.com is citing a story that claims Leah Messer, the just recently divorced mother of twin girls, is expecting her third child with boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, 22. You know, the guy she met in July a month after finalizing her divorce (also the one she moved in with in October). Apparently, she’s taking things slowly for a nineteen-year-old which scares the old lady in me immensely!
One of Leah’s “friends” (God love these girls’ “true friends”) tells InTouch Weekly that Leah has wanted to get pregnant with her new beau’s baby for a while… and that ‘while’ can’t be more than a couple months just by math’s sake, given the pair’s quick courtship. The pal reveals, “She was actively trying to conceive with Jeremy. She stopped using birth control last month.” Can I make a suggestion that will likely be shot down by readers and MTV alike? If your teen moms really want to continue being teen moms several times over, it’s probably time to take them out of the rotation.
On December 9, Leah was seen leaving St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Virginia. According to the source, the already mother of two “was glowing.” States the source, “She looked like she had just heard some big news.” Said witness is apparently also a lip reader, as he/she reported that Leah called Jeremy on her way out of her doctor’s appointment — which confirmed her home pregnancy results — to exclaim, “I’m pregnant.”
The friend continues as he/she is getting paid by the word, “[Leah] sees Jeremy act like a wonderful father and she believes the baby will make the family stronger. She thinks this is the best decision for Ali and Aleeah.” No word currently as to whether the 2-year-old twins’ father, Corey Simms, agrees. I’m going to venture a guess that he’s not on board. A source close to the former spouses agrees, admitting that Corey is beyond angry with his recent ex-wife. Corey, 21, allegedly said, “[She is] a slut and doesn’t have her head on straight.” Let’s watch it with the name calling there, bud. You have daughters to raise!
Another friend (they just come out of the woodwork, don’t they?) shares, “Leah forgets that she’s only been dating Jeremy for a few months.” Concurring is Leah’s stepfather. The pal says, “He thinks she is too young for another kid.”
Hopefully, if this news is true, Jeremy is in on this grand plan. The same blog is also reporting that Leah is ready to bestow the role of new daddy on her live-in love, and she is openly gushing that she’d love to be engaged to Jeremy. Is MTV taking the hint and planning on yet another wedding as the backdrop for season 3 of Teen Mom 2?
“Leah is going full stream ahead, she loves that Jeremy is acting like a father to the girls. She is more than fine with him taking Corey’s place,” says a source, who adds,“She doesn’t see anything wrong with it and is happy to be moving on.”
Not shockingly, Corey isn’t keen on being reduced to second fiddle in the twins’ lives. He retorts, “My girls know who their daddy is. I’d die for my girls. Jeremy is not there to replace me. No one will keep me from them.”
It is a blessing that the girls are loved by so many, with Jeremytweeting on December 16, “Happy Birthday Ali and Aleeah! You girls mean the word to me. I love you both beyond words!” He followed up his well wishes on Tuesday with a declaration to their mother: “@TM2LeahDawn baby I’ll always be there for u no matter what ! I love you!” Funny… not too long ago, Mr. Calvert’s tweets were private. I guess he can’t leave his fans in the dark! Regardless, wow. Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah.
DO YOU THINK THAT LEAH IS PREGNANT AGAIN? SHOULD SHE BE TRYING TO REPLACE COREY WITH JEREMY IN THE TWINS’ LIFE? TRICK QUESTION—OF COURSE NOT! DO YOU THINK JEREMY’S TWEETS ARE APPROPRIATE OR SHOULD HE BE MORE SENSITIVE TO COREY?
