Oh, it seems like at least one couple from Teen Mom is really trying to make it work! I'll admit, most of the girls from both Teen Mom franchises make really stupid decisions and do totally dumb things–even when they have an amazing support system. None of them seem to be in healthy relationships except for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. Surprisingly, this pair had the most stacked against them…her mom was an addict, his dad was in and and out of jail, and they ended up becoming step-siblings when her mom and his dad entered into a tumultuous marriage. It's enough to mess up any teen couple. Or anyone, for that matter!
However, Catelynn and Tyler are different. They've been together since the seventh grade, and, realizing that their daughter could be raised in a much more stable environment, they decided to choose adoption. They are the only couple in the history of 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom to do so. While they've definitely struggled in their relationship (Catelynn needs a lot of reassurance), they seem to be committed to one another and are now engaged. Even if Catelynn and Tyler don't make it (I really hope they do), they are more mature than all of the other Teen Moms (1 and 2!) put together. That may not be saying much, but I still think they still think they are head and shoulders above their counterparts.
I'll admit, I laughed a bit when Tylerdecided to move to New Orleans to focus on his acting career–mainly because he went to New Orleans and not New York or Los Angeles…or even Wilmington, North Carolina! When Tyler decided to fulfill his dreams, he and Catelynn vowed to make their relationship work long distance. Now, the couple is reunited for the holidays.
On Monday Teen Mom 2star Jenelle Evans got a text message from her wise mother, Barbara, asking her to just stop putting everything out on the internet and take a break for a while. Jenelle defended her Twitter addiction, saying that she loves to connect with her fans. Jenelle should've taken her mom's advice!
Today Jenelle, her new husbandCourtland Rogers and his ex Taylor Lewis, the mother of his daughter Jordan, have been engaged in a war of words and photos and it hasn't been pretty. Some of it has been straight up incoherent, but here's the gist. They say there are three sides to every story, so we present to you the raging Tweets from Jenelle, Courtland and Taylor.
Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowryrecently tweeted pictures of her latest tattoo, the beginning of a half-sleeve tattoo, on the inside of her bicep. Ouch!
The tattoo includes a pocket watch, roses, thorns, skulls, and an anchor. When asked about the meaning of the objects, Kailsaid, “It’s an anchor (for all those who have kept me grounded through my journey with MTV). And the pocket watch reads 10:05, the day I met Javi. The skull is for my past (skeletons in my closet).”
The tattoo reveal didn't come without criticism. Naturally. After a slew of hateful tweets, Kail responded with “I love when people think I want/need their approval to do something" and "Please, tell me more about how trashy my tattoos are & how ugly they will be when I'm 60. You don't HAVE to look at me. 🙂 #movealongnow."
We begin as Leah and Jeremy make it official after her first motorcycle ride. When he asks about what went wrong with Corey to which she replies, "He did some things, I did some things." Jeremy doesn't care. He couldn't be happier that he sent that Facebook friend request!
Chelsea's friend has encouraged her to see a therapist. Chelsea isn't ready to give up Adam, but she admits to having issues with depression and low self-esteem before Adam ever came along.
Jenelle is passing all of her drug tests, and she's back in school. She has lunch with her mom Barbara, and she admits that she's stopped taking her bi-polar meds. Barbara wants Jenelle to make a doctor's appointment to refill her prescription which Jenelle says she'll do "when she has time." We all know how that turns out, don't we? She admits to her mother that she's going to hang out with a new guy. Barbara thinks that a new skinny kid is exactly what her daughter needs to take her mind off of Kieffer. She praises Jenelle's more responsible attitude and agrees to let her take Jace to Myrtle Beach for the day.
When Jo comes to pick up Isaac, Kailyn is crying over Jordan. He tries to console her by telling her any guy that would stand her up isn't worth the tears. Poor Jo. He can't win for losing.
I couldn't bring myself to poke fun at Jenelle's one-stop courthouse shopping. Or care about the most recent developments in her life, such as her failure to get a prenup before her quickie wedding. I just did. not. care. and I hated her for having a child she (seemingly) does not appreciate. I chose to watch the news coverage on CNN instead.
That said, I'm not ashamed to admit that I've always had a soft spot for Jenelle. Her story is truly the ONLY reason I watch Teen Mom 2. I get Jenelle's never-ending desire to feel loved, I think Barbara is (unintentionally) hilarious, and Jace is super cute.
Yes, Jenelle is currently a complete mess, but I feel as if she's the only star of Teen Mom 2 who has it in her (albeit way deep down) to change for the better. Before you call me nuts, let me explain.
Last night's Teen Mom 2 was thankfully less dramatic than normal. It was a refreshing break from the normal yelling and sobbing. Of course there were tears (after all Chelsea Houska is still on the show!), but it wasn't the normal Jenelle Evans drama. Kailyn Lowry ended a relationship while Leah Messer started a new one. Over all, it was a relatively low-key episode.
Jordan is still distrusting of Kailyn when it comes to her spending time with Jo. While I can see his point with her, I don't think he needs to worry about Jo…he seems to be well over Kailyn. The following day at school, Kailyn chats with a friend about their love triangle…and there's that flipping feather in her hair! Her friend wants her to try being single for a while. Kailyn hasn't been single since she was fifteen. She basically admits that she's with Jordan for support.
Jenelle is trying to put her anger towards her mom aside so she can spend time with Jace. His second birthday is coming up, but she can't plan a party because she's too busy lunching with friends and worrying about her parole violation. I'm guessing she's probably smoking a bunch of weed as well. Jenelle has decided that she's going to quit smoking and send her probation officer an apology letter in hopes of avoiding jail time. Her friend Tori promises to quit smoking as well so Jenelle won't have to be drug-free all alone. Sweet!
“Courtland is accused of taking a gift card back to a store and attempting cash it in, but according to the store the gift card was never purchased so that raised a red flag,” a source tells RadarOnline.
Before I finish writing one story about Teen Mom 2'sJenelle Evans, 12 more crop up. It's a never-ending battle to see how many words per minute I can type without spraining a pinky. Or a middle finger.
Let's start off first with the events of yesterday morning. No, I don't mean the release of Ke$ha's new album, y'all! I'm talking about the day that will now be known as the wedding anniversary of Jenelle Evans' first marriage. Yesterday when Jenelle and Courtland secretly said their "I Do's", they first had to stop by different court room, where Courtland was charged with a felony!
A Radar source shared, "Courtland Rogers was charged with a felony in North Carolina on Tuesday for obtaining property by false pretenses. Straight after that court hearing was finished Jenelle and Courtland got married at the magistrate's office."
