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.

The new season of Teen Mom 2 premieres next month and MTV is working overtime to make sure everyone wants to watch by releasing an extended trailer of what’s to come. This season will continue the lives of Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska and Jenelle Evansas they struggle to balance life, relationships and parenting toddlers!
Leah and Corey Simms experience difficulties in their marriage, particularly in the wake of daughter Ali’s medical issues. Ali will undergo an MRI to diagnose her developmental delays, while Aleeha takes her first steps. Corey will also discover that Leah cheated on him and after six-months of marriage when Leah files for divorce. The series will also show Leah dating again and moving on with her life.
Chelsea struggles to deal with her ex-boyfriend Adam Lind who refuses to step up to the plate for their daughter Aubree. Chelsea also reveals that Adam “angrily” took their daughter, leaving Chelsea to wonder “How could I like him so much and he likes me not at all?” Chelsea will also obtain her GED, meaning a better future for her family.
Kailyn’s bad luck streak seems to continue despite her hard work to create a better life for her son. This season she gets into a car accident and though Isaac and her were unharmed, Kailyn only has liability insurance making it difficult to pay for the repairs and get to work. Kailyn will also have relationship drama as Jordan is jealous that she is spending time with her ex, Jo Rivera! It appears the jealousy may be warranted because as Kailyn confesses to Jordan: “Things went a little further than they should have.”
Jenelle, will also, of course, have drama this season as she struggles to stop partying and focus on raising her son. Jenelle continues to fight with her mother BarbaraEvans, over her dramatic and unhealthy relationship with Kieffer Delp (who is back in jail again!) as well as the care of her son, Jace. Janelle also faces jail time for assault and ultimately checks into rehab to help get her life back on track.
Teen Mom 2 premieres Dec 6th on MTV (10/9c). The new season trailer is below -
So what can we expect on the new season? MTV promises the dramatic season will follow the girls as they try to navigate their way through life with toddlers in tow. The new season will “take viewers on an intense rollercoaster of highs and lows. As their babies take their first steps, these young moms struggle to balance life, love, and independence while striving to give their children the best life possible.”
Below is what to expect from each cast member –
Leah - Mother to twin girls Alianna and Aleeah, and her daughters’ father, Corey Simms have weathered many ups and downs as a couple, from trust issues to doctor visits for understanding daughter Ali’s slow development. However just before the twins’ first birthday, Leah and Corey made the ultimate commitment by becoming husband and wife. But soon after the honeymoon they realize that marriage isn’t as easy as they’d hoped it would be.
Jenelle - She continues to reconcile the responsibilities of motherhood with her love of partying. With the birthfather of her son Jace out of the picture, Jenelle relies heavily on her mother Barbara Evans. The two’s explosive relationship is amplified by the fact that Barbara has temporary custody of Jace. Through it all, Jenelle struggles to prove herself as a mom and responsible adult, but her party girl ways — and her trouble-maker boyfriend, Kieffer — keep leading her down the wrong path. When Jenelle and Keiffer get arrested, she must choose between changing her ways or continuing on a downward spiral that could quickly hit rock bottom.
Chelsea - Chelsea’s life has been consumed with taking care of her daughter Aubree and trying, in vain, to make her tumultuous relationship with Aubree’s father, Adam Lind, succeed. She still hasn’t graduated from high school, but Chelsea luckily has a strong network of support from friends and family to help her on the road to independence. As her emotional tug-of-war with Adam escalates, she finally gets the strength to call it quits, trying to move forward and focus on what’s best for her and her daughter. Her friends and family just hope she can stay away from Adam for good this time.
Kailyn - Is the mom of baby Isaac. Kailyn and Isaac’s father Jo Rivera’s relationship crumbled under the stress of balancing their lives and raising their child, and Kailyn moved out amidst their constant fighting. A romance with coworker Jordan begins to get more serious as she turns to him for emotional support during a bitter custody battle with Jo. Through it all, Kailyn keeps two jobs and goes to school full time, determined to better her situation for her son while navigating her complicated relationship with Jo and struggling to finally move out on her own.
The new season premieres on MTV December 6 (10/9c).
TMZ reports Jenelle, 20, alongside Jace and another female passenger were rushed to the hospital on Thursday after she crashed her SUV into a light pole.
The Wilmington, NC Police department told TMZ all three passengers were transported to a nearby hospital for minor injuries. Jenelle was driving the car while son Jace was in his car seat in the back.
The good news is all parties are doing well today, as evident by Jenelle’s tweets below, and cops tell TMZ there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. The police are however still investigating.
Jenelle also took to her twitter, of course, to tell her side of the crash. Jenelle, who has had issues with drugs in the past, wanted to make it clear neither alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. “LOOK TMZ.. Crashed into a pole in a parking lot going 10mph no drugs involved I’m clean. Jace is fine I’m injured in the hospital alone,” tweeted Jenelle.
She later added: “My mom took jace home and wouldn’t wait for me.” Jenelle’s mom BarbaraEvans currently has custody of Jace, and just last month, the two got into an altercation during which cops were called.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evanshas left rehab after spending 30 days at the facility. She was photographed above yesterday in North Caroline reuniting with her 22-month-old son Jace.
The 19-year-old troubled MTV reality star checked into a treatment facility in Malibu back on May 7 while her mother Barbara Evans had custody of Jace.
“The rehab helped her out quite a bit with some of the issues she had going in,” Jenelle’s attorney, Dustin Sullivantold RadarOnline. “She was tested for drugs in rehab, and she has now had a sober 30 days which is wonderful.”
An insider revealed last month that Jenelle’s rehab stint was voluntary, adding that she was clean and was simply doing the “program to help her cope with all the stress in her life: her family situation, her legal issues, her general anxiety.” However a friend of Jenelle’s told OK! magazine that her past drugs of choice included pot and ecstasy.
This rehab stint was also probably to help Jenelle in her upcoming court cases. Her most recent arrest came on March 27 for her role in a videotaped brawl with Britany Truett.
Jenelle’s attorney adds that she is not “required to go to any AA meetings or anything else now that she is out” but she is “required to meet with her probation officer once a month and be drug tested.” MTV sure knows how to pick em.
Another day, another magazine cover for a Teen Mom “star.”
Following a bitter custody war with her mother, Teen Mom 2‘s Jenelle Evans now believes handing over her 19-month-old son, Jace, was the right decision.
“When he is older, I will tell him I was really young and I couldn’t put a roof over my own head, let alone his,” Jenelle, 19, tells Us Weekly eight months after voluntarily signing over custody to her mother, Barbara Evans.
According to UsWeekly, Jenelle and Barbara — known for their violent screaming matches — are now working together to raise Jace. Jenelle is taking a few film-studies classes at a local community college, while Barbara, 57, cares for the boy after working her full-time job at a department store.
And while Jenelle reveals she would love to have custody of Jace some day, she does admit she is not there yet. “Once I get a job, save money and have my own place for three months, then I’ll bring my mom to court,” Jenelle reveals of her future plans.
Barbara on the other hand is contempt with the current custody agreement. “Jace wasn’t asked to be born,” Barbara explains. “Somebody has to take care of him, and it’s going to be me. I don’t resent it. I love him to death.”
Also in the interview, Jenelle reveals her relationship with pot-head boyfriend, Kieffer Delp is “totally, completely over.”
