Because everyone likes a little something extra after the holidays, last night MTV gifted us with not one, but two new episodes of Teen Mom 2! I know you’re just as pumped about it as I am, and if you think I’m being sarcastic… well, you’re right. Two hours of mayhem, stupid choices, and those poor toddlers.
EPISODE ONE: MY SHAMELESS PLUG FOR NORTH CAROLINA COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEYS
Leah and Corey are gearing up for more doctor’s visits for Ali. In an effort to cheer up the twins, Leah brings home a kitten. Just one more thing for the couple to take care of in the midst of all their issues. Corey isn’t thrilled about the cat (can you blame him?) but he is happy he’ll be able to accompany Leah to Ali’s geneticist appointment.
Chelsea is recovering from her surgery and she’s bummed to learn that the owners of the house her dad’s she’s renting are trying to sell it. She reveals to her dad that she’s going to have to find new digs. She promises her dad that when she finds a new place, Adam won’t be living with her… he’ll just stay there the majority of the time. Chelsea is ready for a change. There are too many bad memories in her old house — fighting with Adam and growing distant from her former roommate Megan (foreshadowing? And thanks to all the readers who made me realize it will be Megan who shows up preggers in this episode, when I mistakenly thought it was Chelsea’s sister). Chelsea also wants to go back to blonde. Whoa, the changes!

Fans of MTV’s eponymous Teen Mom 2 know Jenelle Evans as the trouble girl gone good as she is shown trying to change her life, beat her addictions as well as regain custody of her two-year-old son, Jace.
Fans have supported Jenelle through her struggles to change her life, but OK! Magazine is reporting that Jenelle’s reformed image is merely an act for the cameras! Despite Jenelle recently claiming she has learned to “control her anger” and is working on being “civil instead of yelling,” behind the scenes Jenelle is apparently the same old volatile girl from last season!
“Jenelle has always had a temper, but now that she’s a ‘celebrity’ it’s gotten much worse,” an insider reports. “She has a sense of entitlement now, and if anyone tells her what to do – watch out!”
“Jenelle and her mom [Barabara Evans] never stop fighting — never,” says an insider who lives in the same town as the battling duo.”What’s bad is that Jace sees this all go down, all the time, every day.” At the center of Jenelle and Barbara’s arguments is Jace, whom Barbara still doesn’t trust alone with Jenelle.
Additionally, Jenelle isn’t limiting her aggression to family as she is also getting into fights with friends. Jenelle recently announced on Facebook that she was no longer getting along with roommate Hannah Inman. The two took their feud public with obscenity filled Twitter tirades and accusations. Classy, much? Hannah is Jenelle’s second roommate this winter, as the first one was unceremoniously kicked out for who knows what.
“Me and Hannah are officially not friends anymore,” the mature mother wrote on Facebook. “She simply used me for money, fame, ciggs, food, a cellphone, etc,” Jenelle published. I hope some of that money is also going towards the care of her son. #doubtit!
Further adding to the theory that Jenelle’s life is still a mess away from the cameras, Star Magazine has recently revealed that Jenelle has relapsed and wants to get back together with loser ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp!
Friends recently revealed that during an MTV promotional tour the under-aged Jenelle was seen drinking alcohol. “One night Jenelle and some of the other girls went out to get alcohol to bring back to the hotel,” a source claims. “Jenelle was drinking beer.” Jenelle was also photographed supposedly smoking pot last year.
Jenelle’s problems are exacerbated by surrounding herself with bad influences. “Jenelle said she was going apartment hunting with this new friend of hers who smokes weed and drinks,” a friend disclosed. As for whether or not she has returned to her old pot head ways, friends aren’t sure. “I dont think Jenelle is smoking weed, but who really knows?”
Just recently some wild photos of Jenelle partying surfaced, which Jenelle claims are are from a couple months ago and she has since changed her behavior: “Yes i learned my lesson all those pics and videos r from two months ago. I never went back,” she tweeted.
And even worse for the beleaguered teen mama, who clearly has trouble making good decisions — she has big plans to get back together with Kieffer! “Jenelle told me that when Kieffer gets out of jail she’s more than likely going to get back with him,” the friend confesses. “She says that he doesn’t have anybody else.”
Perhaps she has moved on as photos from her Facebook page show her kissing a new guy and she has been posting about a person named Gary. We’ll see…
My two cents: Thank you MTV for exposing the sad and troubled worlds of these girls whose lives have clearly been deteriorated by the access to fame, attention and lots of money. If any of the above allegations are true, Jenelle needs to step away from the spotlight and get into therapy to really work through her issues so she can be the best mother possible to her little boy.
THOUGHTS ON THE REVELATIONS ABOUT JENELLE’S BEHAVIOR – DO YOU BELIEVE SHE IS A DIFFERENT PERSON AWAY FROM THE CAMERAS? HAS JENELLE CHANGED?
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.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JENELLE CHOOSING PARTYING OVER HER SON AND THE LATEST WITH ADAM?
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.

Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.
Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.
Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer. Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.

With Teen Mom 2 second’s season premiering this past Tuesday night, I am sure the young mothers (if they are anything like their original counterparts) will be giving us a lot on which to report.
Never one to be out of trouble the lime light for long is the troubled Jenelle Evans. I must say that I hope Jenelle (she’s admittedly one of my favorites… I see a lot of potential in her — let the comments begin! :)) gets her life in order, and as Hollybaby.com is reporting, it appears that she is hopefully changing her situation for the better.
Highlighting a recent magazine interview, the blog discusses Jenelle’s decision to check into rehab. She explains, “My life just started spiraling out of control, my emotions were running wild and I didn’t know how to slow them down. I was having trouble quitting marijuana. I just had to get away from all the drama. If I hadn’t gone, I’m pretty sure I’d be in jail.” She continues, “I’m doing everything in the right direction. I’ve learned how to control my anger.”
As viewers of Teen Mom 2 are well aware, it’s Jenelle’s anger — or mishandling of that anger — that gets her in the most trouble. She admits, “Now when I have problems with people, I confront them about it, but I’m civil instead of yelling. I learned it’s better to leave than have Jace watch me argue with my mom.” Well, that revelation is clearly a step in the right direction!
However, Jenelle believes that her mother, the always yelling Barbara Evans, isn’t ready to see her daughter’s improvement… although many would likely say, ‘Can you blame her?’ Still Jenelle reveals, “She’s just really scared of me getting custody back, because I’m so close. She’s going to do anything in her power for me not to get him back.” I have to wonder if Barbara is so anti-Jenelle as Jenelle seems to think, or just simply pro-Jace.
While Jenelle continues with counseling, she wishes her mother would join her in an effort to resolve their issues. According to Jenelle, her mother will not attend therapy. She explains, “She claims she doesn’t need it and that I’m the one that needs it.” Jenelle adds that the pair don’t get together to tune into the MTV hit because it will likely result in a fight. As for Barbara, she comments, “Jenelle continues to struggle with motherhood.”
Still, Barbara hopes that Jenelle will continue to improve. “I’m hoping the situation gets better,” says Barbara. “I can never give up on my daughter, and it’s important to me that Jace has a close relationship with his mom.”
As Jenelle continues to work on herself and her relationships, she also seems to be faring very well (read: incredibly lucky) in her legal battles. EOnline.com reports that Jenelle has once again avoided jail time. After her recent hearing, the reality star (I hate to give these girls that much credence, but MTV already has, so it is what it is) tweeted, “And the judge congratulated me to [sic] being clean since August and got drug tested at court and I passed of course. Probation got continued!!” Now, let’s just take some of that exuberance and channel it into being a mother and regaining custody.
After facing charges for drug possession and, later, assault, U.S. District Judge Marion R. Warren of Brunswick County, North Carolina last week found that Jenelle was abiding by all of her probation terms. Until her probation period expires in April, Jenelle will still be subject to twice monthly drug testing. Jenelle can also cross off her list the required anger-management courses and parenting classes which were a stipulation of her probation, as she has completed them.
Her attorney Dustin Sullivan states, “She has been doing everything that has been asked of her. She’s been doing tremendously well.” He says confidently, “I have no doubt it will be a successful probation.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT SHE IS TAKING STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION? SHOULD JENELLE REGAIN CUSTODY IF SHE COMPLETES ALL OF HER PROBATION REQUIREMENTS?
Teen Mom 2 premieres tonight on MTV and for some of the ladies it’s a season filled with drama, heartbreak and tough choices as their babies become toddlers.
RadarOnline is reporting that we will get a birds-eye glimpse of Leah Messer‘s marital issues, particularly that Leah feels trapped at home taking care of her twin daughters while her husband, Corey Simms, works long hours. Leah craves some independence and a job of her own leading to some unfortunate situations, but hey when you have children someone has to take care of them!
Chelsea Houska completes the GED this season, taking the first steps towards creating a more positive future for her daughter, but finding time to study while caring for a baby is another story all together. Also distracting her: she can’t get over Aubree’s father, Adam, who remains disconnected to her and his daughter.
Kailyn Lowry is struggling to balance work and school and the 50/50 split custody agreement she has with her son’s father, Jo Rivera. “It takes a lot to co-parent, but we’re trying to be as civil as possible,” Kailyn told Star earlier this year about their situation. “Our relationship is a roller coaster. There’s always a calm before the storm.” It seems like things are going pretty well for Kailyn, except for the rumors that she may have cheated on her current boyfriend, Jordan with her old one!
Despite critics of the show claiming that MTV is glorifying teen parenting by making celebrities out of the teen moms, Kailyn feels that’s not true at all! “It’s not glamorous in any way,” she insists. “If they actually pay attention, they’ll see that one of us is always crying and going through something.”
“I’m kind of like walking birth control for them!” she adds, saying that her friends have definitely thought about preventing pregnancy after seeing her struggle. “At least someone’s benefiting from it.”
And finally, Janelle. Oh, Janelle. Janelle and her mother Barbara Evans are at it again over her unhealthy relationship with on and off boyfriend Kieffer Delp, Janelle focusing on her son, and getting her life back on track. While Barbara clearly loves both her daughter and her gradnson her methods are a little… well, crazy!
MTV offers a glimpse of what viewers can expect to see this season and it’s not pretty, as Janelle and Barbara get into a violent altercation over Janelle sneaking around to see the jobless, law disregarding Kieffer. Barbara doesn’t mince words, telling her daughter: “That’s why you never go anywhere in life.” Tough love, anyone? A clip of the incident is below.
Teen Mom 2 premieres tonight at 10/9c on MTV.
