One batch of pseudo wealthy, formerly adolescent moms are walking off into the sunset (and probably heading on to another reality show, let’s be real) on the final season of Teen Mom, which will premiere on June 12.
In the below trailer, it’s evident this season will be just as dramatic as the ones before. Amber Portwood will have to discuss her rotating court and prison appearances; Catelynn Lowell continues to deal with her dysfunctional mother; Maci Bookout still has feelings for her baby daddy, and Farrah Abraham decides to leave her toxic mother. And also continue to be the worst.
When Teen Moms come to mind, usually there are a few (okay, one or two) that give us faith in the humanity of our nation’s youth, while the others are just famewhore train wrecks. This blog post is about Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra and Jenelle Evans. I’ll let you figure out who falls into which category…
While both Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout have expressed their desire to remain in the public eye with spinoffs, Catelynn and Tyler remain relatively under the radar. Viewers have championed the pair who made the undoubtedly difficult choice to place their daughter up for adoption (because that never seems to happen on the MTV hit) while overcoming major family strife to make a better life together.
Jenelle Evans. Oh, Jenelle. I so want to be in your corner, but with each passing day you make it impossible harder. The latest in Teen Mom debacle news comes from Radaronline.com, and it’s brought to us by–who else?–Jenelle’s supposed biffle. Geez, Jenelle!
Jenelle’s bestie, Tori Rhyne, opens up to the Star Magazine site, claiming the young, troubled mother has found something to whet her palate while she’s not smoking weed. Tori claims her pal has tried her hand at LSD, and she states Jenelle is “thinking it helps her, but it really doesn’t.” Her “friend” (who in no way was compensated for this interview…ahem, cough, cough) alleges, “She does it a lot — she fell in love with it. It’s just a little sheet that she puts on her tongue and waits for it to hit her: Then she gets all weird.”
The site also claims that Jenelle has found other ways to cope, now that she is routinely tested for marijuana use, per her probation conditions. Among her drugs or choice? Star cites Xanax, Ecstacy, booze and alcohol as Jenelle’s choice vices.
However, Tori is concerned that her friend just can’t give up the Mary Jane. “After she gets off, she’s going to smoke a big blunt, that’s what she told me,” Tori tells the site, while acknowledging that Jenelle has put forth little, if any, effort in regaining custody of son Jace who is being cared for by her mother Barbara Evans.
Tori continues, “She’s only worried about getting off probation, so she can smoke weed!” Her friend, who cares enough to get paid by a tabloid to air her fears, shares, “When Jenelle does acid she is an amazing person, but of course it is not her – it is the drug that she is on. As bad as that sounds, I do worry about her because I don’t want her to have a bad trip and never be able to get out of it.” She sounds like a fabulous person and support system. I wonder if she like to split a Best Friends locket with me…

“They’re relieved,” a source reveals. “It helped all of them, being on the show, but they’re all ready to move onto other things without the cameras always around.”
We’ll see how long that feeling lasts once the MTV money dries up and they realize they have to get real 9 – 5s like us regular folks!
The final season featuring the original Teen Mom cast is expected to air this summer on MTV.
Moving on to Teen Mom 2hotmess star, Jenelle Evans, who is apparently taking a break from getting tattoos she’s sure to regret, is now getting breast implants! A source close to the troubled MTV star tells E! News that viewers can expect to see her with her two new friends when the next season of Teen Mom 2 premieres.
“She got tired of having small breasts. Jenelle decided on a full ‘C’ cup because she does not want to go too big,” the source tells E!. “Jenelle has already had a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. Her mom went along to the consultation to show her support. They are getting along much better now,” the source adds.
And how does Jenelle’s current squeeze Gary Head feel about her decision? “Gary is all for it,” says the source, adding that he “supports her decision.” How romantical.
Jenelle also took to her Twitter page this week to announce that charges filed against her by former roommate Hannah Inman for alleged threats and harassment have been dropped.
Jenelle tweeted: “COURT IS OVER WITH CHARGES WERE DROPPED WITH THE HANNAH CASE. she dropped them.” Unfortunately for Jenelle, the cyber stalking charges leveled against her by her former boss James Duffy are still ongoing.

“Season 4 will be the final season of Teen Mom with Maci, Catelynn, Amber and Farrah,” MTV tells Us Weekly. “They will continue to be a part of our MTV family, and we’re thankful to these brave young women for sharing their stories and helping to make a positive impact on teen pregnancy prevention.”
Maci, Catelynn, Amber, and Farrah all began their MTV careers back in 2009 by starring on the first season of 16 and Pregnant.
MTV has yet to announce the premiere date of Teen Mom‘s fourth and final season, but it is expected to air sometime this summer. A Teen Mom 3 is however in the works and will likely feature an all new cast from the upcoming season of 16 and Pregnant which premieres March 27.
As we’ve reported, Amber is currently engaged in a legal mess which includes very strict probation rules that might prohibit her from continuing on with the series. We have to wonder if Amber’s issues had anything to do with this news.
The 5’7″ Farrah, 20, who signed a deal with Models International last month, is “in talks with MTV producers” about a spinoff show based on her new life and career, according to the modeling agency.
“Farrah signed with us in February and will be featured in upcoming magazines as well as LAFashionWeke.com,” a rep for Models International tells E!. “We’re very excited to have her on board. She’s going to be doing commercial, print and brand name licensing.”
Allrighty! Some of Farrah’s first modeling photos are below!

It seems that even though the ladies girls of Teen Mom 2 have taken over our television sets, the original “mothers” are not going quietly into that good night. Never one to be absent from the tabloids and Internet fodder for long, Amber Portwood is now facing two years in prison… at least she waited for her Child Protective Services case to be closed.
While her ex Gary“Strippergate”Shirley has gained primary custody of the couple’s daughter, Leah, Amber’s clean slate may not be as clean as she’d like. She’s on two years probation for socking Gary while MTV cameras rolled. However, she had just a few stipulations for her probation, and according to TMZ, she’s violated them all. Court documents obtained by the site state that the several terms of Amber’s probation have not been met.
Amber’s probation officer is accusing her of a multitude of violations, including –
– “Failure to behave well in society” — namely, drinking too much and hitting a person at a restaurant last month
– Failure to obtain a GED
– Failure to complete 6 months of anger control evaluation and classes
– Failure to pay probation fees
– Failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her baby daughter
My personal favorite — “failure to behave well in society” a.k.a. binge drinking and beating up on IHOP restaurant patrons.
Amber’s original sentence for that whole “punching Gary national television” situation was suspended pending she meet the criteria of her probation. Now that she’s been accused otherwise, will she face the two year jail sentence? Her hearing is set for January, so let’s hope the second cycle of Teen Moms ramp up their drama then for competition’s sake we should know more about her legal fate then.
While Amber’s dealing with legal issues, fellow cast mate Farrah Abraham is focusing on matters of the heart. The young mother, at the ripe old age of twenty, is currently romancing Marcel Kaminstein — fourteen years her senior — who she met on the Internet dating site JDate.com.
“I’m happy and hoping for the best,” says the mom of Sophia on her budding relationship. Life & Stylerevealed in September that Farrah is searching for “a man who is happy, supportive, works hard, is successful, can stay in but also go out, is active, outgoing, easygoing, likes children and dogs, can be serious but knows when to have fun, and is a romantic,” per her online profile. You know who that sounds like, right? Paging Kieffer Delp, paging Mr. Delp!
Farrah and Marcel went public with their romance in December. After brunching and beaching in Miami, the couple posed for pictures and shared kisses with Farrah later tweeting, “I had a great time at the beach with my bf!” Tweeting and using tween lingo like “bf” — sounds exactly like what the normal 34-year-old looks for in a 20-year-old lady friend.
A friend of Farrah’s reveals that even 2-year-old Sophia is smitten, stating, “She’s always hugging him. He’s great with kids.” He should be, he’s dating one. Zing! Inappropriate? The magazine reports that Farrah plans to keep Sophia full time in Florida, even though the toddler has been mainly living with Farrah’s mother Debra in Iowa.
So, is this mature suitor the MTV teen (mom) queen’s perfect match? She admits, “I want to build a strong and lasting relationship with him.” Sounds like perfect fodder for season three!

WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S ALLEGED PROBATION VIOLATIONS? SHOULD SHE SERVE TIME IN JAIL? THOUGHTS ON FARRAH’S NEW RELATIONSHIP? IS HER NEW BOYFRIEND CREEPY — NOT BECAUSE OF THE MATHEMATICAL AGE DIFFERENCE, BUT BECAUSE SHE ACTS LIKE SHE’S TWELVE?
After realizing hardly anyone is siding with her and/or seeing her as a victim in her divorce battle,Kim Kardashian is now changing her tactics, moving away from attacking her husband, Kris Humphries… at least on the record.
While Kris has had to endure camp Kardashian leaking all sorts of negative stories about him to the press in the past month, he finally had enough this week after filing an annulment — accusing his wife of fraud and simply using him as a prop on her E! reality show. TMZ then quoted Kim as saying Kris was “pathetic” amongst other things. Unfortunately for Kimmie, the public remains overwhelmingly on Kris’s side as most believe he got used by the Kardashian clan.
PEOPLE magazine is now reporting sources close to Kim are claiming she no longer wants to fight dirty. “The filing is, of course, upsetting,” says the source. “She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on… Kim doesn’t want a battle.” Riiight. No word yet on whether Kimmie and her camp will stop leaking stories about Kris to the press, you know, stories like the current Star magazine cover.
As for Kris, sources close to him tell TMZ he doesn’t want a divorce because of his religion. Apparently, that religion didn’t prohibit him from marrying a sex-tape-fame-whore skank.
According to TMZ, Kris filed for an annulment because it wipes the slate clean by simply erasing the marriage. Even better, if his annulment request is denied, Kris will reportedly ask for a legal separation that will extend indefinitely. And even though an indefinite separation would prevent him from marrying again, he still believes it’s preferable to a divorce. Wowzers.
Legal experts, however, state Kim can still get a divorce with or without the help of Kris as California only requires the consent of one-half of a couple to end a marriage.
Days after an unwed Kourtney announced she was expecting her second child with baby daddy Scott Disick, Farrah tweeted: “I’m shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again. Did she not learn anything from Teen Mom? Maybe it’s a fake pregnancy like Kim’s wedding. SAD.”
After some fans alerted Farrah that Kourtney, 32, and Scott, 27, are both adults that can take care of their children, Farrah responded, “Double standards in this world? Yes, and guess what? Age and money honestly do not change a person’s poor choice. Quit making excuses.”
The Kardashians, who were probably more than happy to have this new controversy, wasted no time in slamming Farrah! Below are some of their responses via Twitter -
Kourtney - “Why would I have anything to do with teen mom? I’m 32 years old! I may look young honey, but don’t get it twisted. :)”
Scott - “Were not teenagers ya fucking moron.”
Khloe - “I don’t even know who this person is? How do u?” was Khloe’s reply to Scott’s tweet.
Scott - “I just thought she was some shit stain on twitter, no?” was Scott’s mature response to Khloe.
Yikes. As for Farrah, she sort of backtracked this morning by tweeting: “4 all who misunderstood: regards to kourtney K.~ I hope she takes her relationship w/her boyfriend more serious 4 their children-takecare.” And no, that makes zero sense to me as well!
While having two kids out of wedlock is definitely not the best route to go, it’s a bit ridic for Farrah to compare the situation of a 32-year-old Kourtney to Teen Moms. And darn you Farrah for forcing me to defend a Kardashian!
Finally, to further distract us from Kimmie’s divorce mess, Khloe Kardashian is also making headlines after she fired back at her “haters” for criticizing her looks. See, Khloe was photographed (the picture is below) going to the gym without makeup which led to some not so kind comments from fans.
Khloe of course took to her Twitter to respond. She wrote, “Some people are so stressed trying to be perfectly flawless…. but I’m so HAPPY to be perfectly flawed… Haters are like crickets; they make a lot of noise you can hear but you never see them, then you walk right by them and they’re quiet.”
Khloe later added, “Its crazy 2me that if I dont go 2the gym I get judged. If I do go I still get judged. Yes when u work out u sweat, get red… This is why I live for me and not for anyone else. You learn quickly that you will NEVER make everyone happy in life. But I am happy :).”
Apparently those who are very happy always make time to respond to their “haters.” Seems like the Kardashians could definitely use a hobby or two… better yet some well deserved time away from the spotlight.

Last night we bid a final farewell to MTV’s original Teen Mom cast. Well, not technically final, because I’m sure they will keep filming this train wreck as long as their are folks like me to watch it!
The finale resumes with a saddened Amber rejoining her mother on Dr. Drew’s sofa after the doctor goes to speak with her. At the end of the first half of the reunion Amber had stormed off stage because she was so upset discussing her younger sister’s death from SIDS when Amber was four years old. Dr. Drew assures Amber that SIDS is sadly a common killer of infants and no one is to blame.
Amber’s mother remembers that the mother-daughter relationship was very stressful before Amber got pregnant. Dr. Drew uses Amber and her mother as a tutorial for parents who are concerned about their child’s sex lives, discussing how to overcome the awkwardness of broaching the subject of sex with one another.
