16 and Pregnant

16 and Pregnant's Whitney Purvis and Weston Gosa are in trouble. 

Earlier this week, Whitney and Weston were accused of smashing someone else's laptop and cell phone, arrested, and charged with criminal trespassing. 

This is the second arrest this year for each of them.

In March, Whitney was arrested for stealing a pregnancy test from Walmart. Following the arrest, Whitney said, “Sometimes it takes hittin’ rockbottom.” In July, Weston was arrested and charged with felony possession of controlled substances, misdemeanor possession of drug-related objects, and DUI. Also, he may or may not have been charged with failing to stay awake for mugshot.


Teen Mom shocker: Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are living separately. On October 22, Tyler moved to New Orleans to pursue his dream of social working being a movie star. Simply put, Tyler says, "It's time for me to focus on my dreams." And, according to Tyler, New Orleans has a "thriving movie scene."

So, Catelynn is on her own in Michigan. To pass the time, she attends Baker College, shares Twitpics, saves pregnant teens, and (now) fends off break up rumors. Catelynn insists that she and Tyler are "stronger than ever." She shares, “I love him, and I need to stand by him.”

Catelynn feels the need to add, “It’s not like we’re going to go out and cheat on each other. We’re not like that." To reinforce Catelynn's statement, Tyler adds, "We're two peas in a pod." Catelynn and Tyler have been through a lot together – an unplanned pregnancy, placing Carly for adoption, drug addicted parents, becoming step brother and sister – and are to be married in July. Wil their relationship survive this separation? 


Jennifer Del Rio from 16 and Pregnant has fled her home state of Florida with her twins to get away from her children’s father.  You may recall this happy couple from their episode when her then boyfriend Joshua Smith left her on the side of the road before speeding off with his children in the back seat.  He’s a classy guy.

The now eighteen-year-old mother is now with her kids in Illinois, citing her ex’s abusive ways as her reasoning for getting the heck out of dodge.  Both were arrested (at separate times) in 2011 alleging battery against the other, a claim Jennifer says is totally false.


Devon Broyles from Richmond, Virginia is the teem mom we met on last night’s 16 and Pregnant.  She brags about being mature for her age, as she’s sixteen and pregnant with her twenty-year-old boyfriend Colin whom she met after his first tour in Iraq.

Devon lives at home with her older brother, two sisters, and mom.  Her folks are divorced, but her parents are still friendly, so her dad stays at their house when he’s in town.  Hmm, what else?  Oh yeah, Devon’s sister Jane is also a teen mom, so her one-year-old daughter lives there as well.  Her mother also let Colin move in after the pair started dating.  Where’s John Stamos because this is clearly a full house!

The couple reminisces about the many nights Devon would sneak Colin into the house late night, and once her mom busted them the following morning, he was allowed to move in for good.  She got pregnant a few months later.  Devon is focused on school while Colin supports the family by serving in the Reserves.  She admits to her friends that she didn’t figure out she was pregnant until she was five months along.  Yea prenatal care!  Her friends laugh at her misfortune as she was always the life of every party.


We were introduced to Sarah Roberts on last night’s 16 and Pregnant, a sixteen-year-old from Chickamauga, Georgia.  She is super close to her mother, and she lives with her mom and two brothers.  Sarah met her boyfriend Blake in the sixth grade, and they have been dating on and off for five years.  She had aspired to go to college and study journalism, while Blake dreams of being a shrimp boat captain.  Sarah’s mom Tina and Blake don’t get along, but of course she lets him move in once Sarah gets pregnant.  He’s a high school dropout, and Sarah’s mom doesn’t like how disrespectful he is or how he treats her daughter.  Blake doesn’t like following Tina’s rules, and Sarah wonders how long he will stick around in Chickamauga.  Blake thinks he could make more money shrimping in South Georgia.

Sarah’s mom does her make-up every morning.  Tina is concerned that once the baby is born the couple will take off to South Georgia.  At a doctor’s appointment, Blake seems very uncomfortable.  Sarah tells her midwife that she will be going to school online, while Blake mumbles something about getting his GED.  Blake has promised to pick up a crib from Sarah’s aunt, but he’s busy…playing video games and hanging out with his friends.  Tina warns Sarah that he’s only going to get worse once the baby is born.  Blake confides in a friend that he just wants to have fun until the baby is born.  The whole conversation has subtitles.  Thank goodness I’m Southern.  I have no problem understanding what they’re saying, which is awesome because it means I can keep typing instead of trying to decipher their backwoods twang.  The ever classy Blake reveals that he is so sick of Sarah’s mother, he is sometimes just tempted to pay child support and be done with it.


On last night’s 16 and Pregnant, we are introduced to a couple who wasn’t a couple.  The two had a few hook-ups before learning they were expecting.  However, the pair managed to defy most odds (after an early-on freak out by mohawked dad) to become a loving, self-sufficient couple with a newborn.

Hope Harbert is from Lee’s Summit, Missouri where she lives with her mom and two younger siblings.  She fancies herself a party girl who has just graduated from high school.  She met Ben, who also enjoyed going out, and after hooking up a few times, Hope found out she was pregnant.  She actually got pregnant the first time she ever had sex.  When Hope told Ben about the impending baby, he said he wanted nothing to do with her or his child.  Hope reveals to her mother she lost her virginity to Ben, and although they only had sex a couple times, they never used protection.  Her mother is very disappointed, but she is supportive.  After two months of no contact, Ben has a change of heart and invites Hope to come move in with him before the baby is born.  She thinks that is the best idea for the new couple.  Of course she does.  When will these girls learn?

After chatting with her friends, Hope admits that she thinks Ben will be a good dad even if he’s not a good boyfriend.  Her folks have never met Ben, and her mother is beyond perplexed that her daughter is in this situation having never had a boyfriend before.  Ben isn’t quite ready to meet her fam, so he only comes by to visit when no one is home. Winner!  Ben has gotten a new apartment, and he is willing to move in all the baby stuff.  However, he’s not keen on moving in Hope’s belongings.  Ben is quick to let her know that she’s welcome to spend the night whenever she wants.  What a charmer.  He also admits that he was frightened off from her when he found out she was a virgin who got pregnant after only having sex the first time.  Perhaps he missed the day in sex ed when you learn that anytime you have sex you can get pregnant…you don’t have to practice for months before it can happen.


On last night’s 16 and Pregnant, we meet Myranda Trevino and her boyfriend Eric Kennemer from Bronson, Texas.  She’s a track star and he hopes to play professional baseball one day.  Myranda’s mother Billie has addiction issues and allowed her three months pregnant daughter to move in with Eric at his grandmother’s after the pair had been dating six months.  Myranda has a strained relationship with her mother, but during a discussion we learn that Myranda was on the Pill but stopped taking it for a month.  She plans to drop out of school and get her GED.

Eric’s Nanny helps the couple and allows the couple to live with her for free.  Eric says the most honest thing ever on this show when he tells his brother that Myranda got pregnant because he was thinking with his penis.  Eric is working part time and about to start college classes.  Nanny is a spitfire.  She is annoyed at the pair’s stupidity in light of birth control, and she makes sure to give the couple as little privacy as possible. Nanny drops the bomb that her house isn’t a daycare facility, so the couple will have to find other living arrangements once the baby arrives.


On last night’s 16 and Pregnant we meet Jordan Howard, a teen from Millersville, Pennsylvania who is in a biracial relationship with Tyler.  She discusses her situation with her mother Kelly who isn’t keen on her daughter’s boyfriend.  She won’t even let him in her home.  Kelly is alright with Jordan staying at Tyler’s house now, but that will change after the baby.  The baby WILL stay at Jordan’s house and Tyler will NOT be included.  Thankfully, his parents are more supportive.  Jordan wants to stay with his parents after the couple’s son is born, but they all know they will face strong opposition from her mother.

Tyler has spent a lot of his savings on baby supplies and furniture.  Jordan wants to contribute, so the pair go shopping for baby clothes.  It’s worth noting that Tyler is wearing a shirt that says “I’m the guy your parents warned you about.”  Tyler and Jordan reveal that her mother is so wary of Tyler because he’s white.  She admits she even had some strange reactions from her friends when they first got together.  Jordan discusses with her friends her fear about telling her mom about her plans to move in with Tyler’s family.
