Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 left me with more questions than answers when it comes to the state of affairs for Kailyn Lowry, Briana DeJesus and Jenelle Evans. It seems like everything is always up in the air and nothing is ever resolved in their lives.
Starting with Kail, the ups and downs with ex-husband Javi Marroquin continue and ever since he filed for child support, they have been down. Despite the tension, Kail claims she is doing her best to make sure he sees the boys but when he can’t pick them up at the spot she designated, that quickly goes out the window. She decides to meet him in a parking lot that’s convenient for her but after a few texts from him, pulls off angrily and explains in detail to the boys that “Javi” (not Dad) doesn’t have the right car with car seats to pick them up so they have to come to school with her.
Teen Mom 2 is trucking along and it’s a lot of the same old same old. Kailyn Lowryand ex Javi Marroquin were on good terms as of last episode, but we all knew that wouldn’t last long and low and behold, it hasn’t thanks to Javi requesting child support. Briana DeJesus is still feeling stressed and overwhelmed that baby daddy Luis isn’t stepping up to the plate and having an upcoming baby shower doesn’t change that. Leah Messer is seeing Ali’s specialist to get some answers on her recent breathing issues and Chelsea DeBoer is guiding Aubree through her last day of first grade. Finally, we have Jenelle Evans and the never ending drama between her and mother Barb about seeing Jace. It’s not quite as bad as last week’s blow up but clearly, there are plenty of leftover feelings in play.
Starting with Kail and Javi, Kail decides that since they are cool (for now), Javi can come over and spend some time with the boys. How nice of her! She is also relieved he’s coming over because she has a lot to do. While she starts to paint the baby’s room, Javi takes Isaac and Lincoln outside and helps Isaac learn to ride his bike. It’s going great and Javi has to ask Kail to come outside to see. She agrees but tells him to make it quick. Once she sees Isaac riding, she is super excited for him and Javi dutifully runs beside him in the street, making sure he’s safe from falling.
On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2, life is settling into a nice rhythm – Chelsea DeBoerhas more babies on the brain and Kailyn Lowry seems to have found some harmony with ex Javi Marroquin. Unfortunately, not all in Teen Mom land are settled – Leah Messer is in limbo waiting to find out why Ali has been having breathing problems, Briana DeJesus is still wary of baby daddy Luis’s intentions once the baby is here and Jenelle Evans, well, just brace yourself for another rough episode of her and mom Barb fighting over Jace. Let’s start with the good before the bad and the ugly.
Over at the DeBoer residence, Chelsea and husband Cole are setting up an adorable monthly marker photo shoot for baby Watson while Aubree helps. He is getting so big and he sure is cute, making Chelsea admit that she has an official case of baby fever. Cole is game for more and says he’s ready when Chelsea is ready. Chelsea floats the idea of right now and Cole doesn’t even flinch – he’s fully on board if that’s what Chelsea wants to do.
OK Viewers, you’re in luck – tonight, MTV threw in another surprise episode of Teen Mom 2 at the ripe old hour of 11 PM. So if you missed it, I’m here to fill you in on what happened. Briana De Jesus is still undecided about what she wants to do with her current pregnancy. Does she want to give her baby up for adoption? Co-parent with Luis? Punish herself for the rest of her life by staying together? So many choices but she really does have to meet up with Luis and see if he is still open to the adoption idea since they kind of both have to be on the same page to make it happen. Nova’s dad is supposed to come over and spend time with her but he’s way late and they can’t get a hold of him so Briana sees her future flashing before her eyes (again).
On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2, there are decisions to be made and beans to be spilled. Briana DeJesus is still struggling with whether or not to keep her unborn baby thanks to the recent discovery of Luis’s cheating. Kailyn Lowry is going to start talking openly about her pregnancy after one of her friends accidentally mentioned it during filming. Just one last person to tell: ex-husband Javi Marroquin, who she just finalized her divorce from.
Jenelle Evans is still two steps forward and one step back with mom, Barbara Evans, while fiancé David Eason does his best to ruin it all. Leah Messer and ex Jeremy Calvert are co-parenting well, but it looks like everyone might not think so when it comes to Addie and how she handles going back to Leah’s house. Chelsea and Cole DeBoer are still settling into life with a newborn but Aubree and her newfound jealousy is making it harder and harder on their patience.
Welcome to season 8 of Teen Mom 2! Some things haven’t changed at all, like Jenelle Evans’ attitude long standing feud with mom Barb over custody of Jace and love for all things drama, but there are plenty of other changes going on with the cast from new babies to new teen moms joining the show in the form of Briana DeJesus.
Speaking of, Briana is already familiar with Kailyn Lowry’s now ex-husband, Javi Marroquin after meeting a few years ago. We get to see some footage of their friendship in action when Javi drops by her dressing room after a taping of the Teen Mom 2 after show. Javi flirts good naturedly, saying Briana’s mom was trying to hook them up but that won’t work now since Briana is pregnant with boyfriend (?) Luis. She flips her hair and smiles back but goes on to say that things are going really well with Luis and they plan on moving in together. Oh, and she’s having another girl.
Happy Monday! Teen Mom 2 returns for its eighth season tonight and almost EVERYONE is pregnant!
We catch up with Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer tonight and we have a fifth mom in the mix this time around! Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus is joining the show this season! When the season starts off, Briana is pregnant with her second child and we’ll get a glimpse of her journey as she raises daughter Nova – who has grown SO much since we saw her last!
Jenelle Evans is pretending to be a grown up adult again – or at least she’s trying to play that role on TV! Despite juggling custody battles, baby daddies, babies galore, the Teen Mom 2 star brags that life is perfect – like for real. And she definitely has her act together this time too! [collective eye roll!]
With three kids (and three different daddies), Jenelle has decided the baby factory is definitely closed. Jenelle and fiancé of the month David Eason thought about a fourth kid, but then they remembered that parenthood is like so challenging! “David and I talked about it one day recently and how complicated things can get with Kaiser and Ensley together. They remind us why we are done.”
“But I love it,” Jenelle adds, “and wouldn’t trade my role as ‘mom.'” Not again, anyway.
