Are you keeping up with the recent batch of couples from 16 & Pregnant? No? Well Georgia’s State Troopers are! Whitney Purvis’ baby daddy Weston Gosa was just arrested for driving under the influence…of alcohol and prescription drugs. All of this came to light after he wrecked his car. Glad to hear that the 23-year-old has learned some life lessons after his stint on MTV.
TMZ reports that Weston was charged with “felony possession of controlled substances, misdemeanor possession of drug-related objects, and DUI.” Police found the young father in possession of Lorcet and Xanax without a prescription, as well as a pipe with unknown residue in it. I really, really, really want to get on my soapbox about the teen moms–especially those who are televised–regarding how NOT hard it is to do the right thing. No judgement, but, seriously? A crashed DUI with pills involved? I wish TMZ could have shaken said Weston Gosa for me. Grow up, step up, be a man.
SHOCKED TO HEAR MORE 16 & PREGNANT DRAMA? WILL THESE KIDS EVER GET THERE STUFF TOGETHER?
We have seen their relationship go through some of the toughest and most private moments that teens could imagine. From 16 & Pregnant through three seasons of Teen Mom, viewers have watched Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra catapult into adulthood, far before their time. After getting pregnant at sixteen, the couple made the difficult choice to place their daughter Carly up for adoption. Thanks to their open relationship with Carly’s parents, the pair is able to share in Carly’s milestones, but at home they have dealt with their fair share of family problems.
Now, after the fourth and final season of their Teen Mom franchise has filmed (it begins airing next Tuesday, June 12, on MTV), the couple seems to have finally gotten their happy ending. Being the one couple I have sincerely rooted for since the beginning, I am happy to announce that they will be walking down the aisle on July 15, 2013. In an interview with wetpaint.com, Catelynn and Tyler discuss their wedding…and whether we’ll get to see it happen.
It’s once again time for Dr. Drew Pinsky and his diluted and passive advice to this past season’s crop of 16 & Pregnant girls. Yes, it’s Life After Labor, y’all, and it’s an hour and a half! He touts the triumphs and challenges of the most recent teen moms, and, as you all know, we’re treated to quite an emotional video montage.
Briana, who graduated high school a year early (the girl whose sister had an abortion around the same time Briana got pregnant) is first on Dr. Drew’s sofa. She’s still sporting her adorable cropped haircut. She’s joined by her mother and sister. Everyone is crying. Her mother is devastated, saying it’s not the path she wanted for her daughters. Her sister seems very defensive when answering Drew’s questions about her abortion. More tears. She’s worried her family will feel guilty for her actions. Briana cries saying she had to give up school, and all of her friends have abandoned her.
Last night was the season finale of 16 & Pregnant. We are introduced to Kristina Robinson who lives in Dewberry, Texas with her mother, grandmother, brother, and sister. She is very close to her Aunt Dotty, and spends lots of time at her house with her husband Daniel (that would be Uncle Daniel, correct?) and their three kids (so her cousins…funny how they don’t phrase it like that). It was at Dotty and Daniel’s that she met her boyfriend Todd…who is the younger brother of Daniel…aka her uncle.
The pair started dating a year ago, and things moved very quickly. Around prom time of junior year, Todd proposed, and Kristina accepted. That summer the pair was at the beach vacationing with Kristina’s family. While swimming in the ocean, the couple got caught in a riptide. Kristina was rescued by a lifeguard, but Todd drowned. This is tragic! Apparently, Kristina was about three months pregnant with his baby when he passed away. She has since moved in full time with Dotty and Daniel as she feels they can better to relate to what she’s experiencing with the loss of Todd.
Daniel urges Kristina to include her mother in the pregnancy because she’s feeling left out, but Kristina has a hard time being around her mother who is constantly distraught over the accident. Kristina is the only one in the family who doesn’t need a constant stream of subtitles. Her mother really wants her to move home, but she wants to stay with her aunt and uncle.
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?
Last night’s 16 and Pregnant introduced us to Briana DeJesus, a Brooklyn teen who now resides with her mother and older sister in Orlando, Florida. She graduated a year early from high school and is looking forward to starting college in the fall. She and her former boyfriend, Devoin, decided to keep the baby, although the couple soon ended their relationship. Even harder? Her sister Brittany got pregnant at the same time and decided to have an abortion. Briana reveals to her friend that they pair didn’t use protection, because it was too awkward to talk about – you know what else is awkward…having everyone up in your business for nine months. Teens say the darndest things.
Both sisters seem almost envious of the others’ choice. Briana has no support from her baby’s father, but she feels like she is flaunting her pregnancy in front of her sister. Brittany claims she chose abortion after seeing how hard it was for her sister, and she promises to go out and have fun while Briana is stuck home with her baby. However, Brittany can’t change the choice she made, and she admits that it is hard for her to watch Briana’s pregnancy progress. Mother and daughters share a tearful moment.
Devoin hasn’t spoken to Briana in over a month, but she still holds out hope that he will be there for their daughter. Her mom agrees to allow him to spend the night a few times a week to help, but she has no intentions of turning into his personal hotel. Seeing as Devoin won’t return Briana’s calls or texts, she may not have anything to worry about. She discusses baby names with her mother, who quickly rules out Bliss, as it sounds too much like a stripper name. Briana is leaning towards the name Nova.
Briana, Brittany, and their friends have a fun time making t-shirts, with Briana decorating hers with stars and the word Nova. She texts Devoin about naming the baby. Briana has made up her mind about Nova, and Devoin thinks he should at least get a vote. She says she will let him choose the last name…but if Devoin wants Nova to have his last name, he’s really going to have to step up to the plate. Devoin is not keen on getting a job to assist with the baby. He feels like he’s being forced into finding work. Doesn’t Briana know how stressed out he is? Devoin is very indifferent to his ex-girlfriend’s tears. D-to-the-ouchebag!
