The very long and emotional premiere begins with Briana. As you'll recall from 16 and Pregnant, Briana and her sister became pregnant at the same time. Brittany opted to have an abortion; Briana chose motherhood. Sadly, Devoin Austin checked out long before his daughter was born, causing Briana to keep his name off of Nova's birth certificate.
Now Briana leans on Brittany and Mom for help with Nova. Over lunch, the girls school Mom on what happens in relationships (Hint: not innocent walks on the beach. Evidence: see Nova.), and Mom sternly tells them NO MORE BOYS!
While there doesn't appear to be a Jenelle Evans in the bunch, Briana is attempting to tweet more often and more caustically than her predecessor in response to anonymous Internet haters. I honestly can't fathom the amount of criticism and hate these girls get from total strangers, and apparently Briana would rather fight back than stay quiet. It's craziness!
That said, we've also got the trailer for the upcoming season, and the drama certainly abounds! After the jump, check out what to expect from the new group of teen moms as well as some of my favorite retorts from Briana's twitter spew. I couldn't show them all because you don't have all day to read this one post!

MTV announced the cast of Teen Mom 3 back in October. Since then, we were treated to back-to-back seasons of Teen Mom 2, but additional details on the next installment of Teen Mom were nowhere to be found. Until now!
Alex, Mackenzie, Briana, and Katie spent the week in New York City, taping the Teen Mom 3 After Shows with Maci Bookout. A few photos from the week are below, including one of the girls mocking Farrah Abraham's infamous cry face. HAHA. I love this cast already!
Alex Sekella lives in Pennsylvania and is the mama to a little girl named Arabella Elizabeth. You'll remember Alex's ex-fiance Matt McCann as being horribly addicted to drugs. Alex hopes her turn on Teen Mom 3 will show how she struggles to work two jobs to raise Arabella on her own. What about Matt? Alex tells In Touch, "I refuse to let him see her."
Mackenzie Douthit is from Oklahoma and has a son named Gannon. Mackenzie is engaged to rodeo addict Josh McKee. About Teen Mom 3, Mackenzie says, "You'll see our good times and our bad times."
“I was scared to do the show [initially],” Mackenzie shares. “But I can’t look back and change the fact that I got pregnant so all I can do is look towards the future.”
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!
