They’re baa–ack! Last night marked the return of MTV’s second season of the second cycle of Teen Mom. The stories begin where they left off last season, and not much has changed with the young mothers.
Right off the bat, Jenelle Evans and her mother Barbara are like oil and water. Jenelle is trying to keep the fact that she bailed her boyfriend Kieffer out of jail a secret. She tells her mom she really wants to turn her life around and she has no plans to bail her ex out of the clink. Per the usual, she is met with her mother’s doubt and negativity, but Jenelle is allowed to take her son Jace to the park alone… where she meets up with her convict boyfriend. I don’t know whether I’m more upset that Barbara has never had any faith in her daughter or Jenelle for never giving her a reason to have it in the first place.

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.

Even though the cameras have stopped rolling the ladies of MTV’s Teen Mom franchise continue to keep our interest piqued with their crazy drama and latest schemes!
Maci Bookout just can’t make up her mind — Ryan or Kyle, Kyle or Ryan, Ryan or Kyle… Despite splitting from son Bentley’s father, ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards, and moving on with live-in love Kyle King, Maci just can’t seem to move on! “Maci clearly still has feelings for Ryan,” a source reveals to Star Magazine. “And Kyle can’t be too happy about it.”
Maci insists she is over her ex and has previously stated: “I want him to be happy because he excels when he’s happy.” But she seems to have changed her opinion now that Ryan is talking marriage with his new girlfriend, bikini model, Dalis Connell! Perhaps Maci only wants Ryan to be happy with her! Conflict of Interests alert!
“Maci has been pretty jealous,” alleges a source that purports to be close to both couples. “Dalis feels like it could be because she and Ryan may get married before Maci does or maybe because Maci is not getting Ryan’s attention anymore.” They should just have a double wedding and call it a day.
Regardless of what Maci thinks Ryan and Dalis are determined to make their relationship work. “Their relationship is definitely true love,” the source explains. “They’re completely supportive of each other.”
In other Teen Mama drama, Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is pulling a Toddlers In Tiaras by having her two-year-old son, Isaac model in the clothing line she created for him just in time for the premiere of Teen Mom 2!
Yes, Kailyn is now a children’s clothing designer at the helm of the Isaac Elliott Collection by Little Miss Cupcake, a line of toddler and baby formal wear. Photos of Isaac modeling some of the wear is below. Photos of the new collection are below!
Kailyn plans to use sales of her clothing as extra money while she earns her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and is apparently getting a lot of positive feedback over the collection!
“I’m overwhelmed with all the sweet things people have been saying,” she said on Twitter today. “Thank you all for the support. Isaac & I love you all. :o)” Good for you Kailyn – keep up the good work!

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).
The first installment of Teen Mom 2wrapped up last night with a reunion special hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky.
We were able to get the latest updates on the teen moms and while some appeared to be on the right path, others didn’t fare so well. For starters, Chelsea Houska decided to get back with her verbally abusive and all around douche baby daddy Adam Lind despite the strong objection from her dad Randy and pretty much the rest of the world.
And not surprisingly, the couple appeared to be rocky as they couldn’t even agree on the number of times they had broken up and gotten back together in recent times. After trying to put on a good front, Chelsea ultimately admitted that the rocky relationship does have a negative impact on their daughter Aubree. As for the latest between the two, Chelsea tweeted last night that she is no longer with Adam stating they broke up again right after the reunion taping.
Moving on to Kailyn LowryandJo Riveraas the two continued to bicker and argue. Kailyn revealed she has moved on from Jo and is now in love with new boyfriend Jordan Wenner who seemed to be a good match for her. Out of all the girls, Kailyn seemed to be doing the best as she stated she is now back in school, living on her own and has a job. Jo’s mom Janet also revealed the reason she didn’t want Kailyn dating while she was living with her was because she did not want Kailyn to wound up pregnant again.
As for Jenelle Evans, she sort of admitted her faults and even stated that she felt boyfriend Kieffer Delp is only using her for her money and car, which makes the fact that she continues to date him all the more pathetic. It was a bit sad when Jenelle’s mom Barbara came out and stated Jenelle wasn’t lovable though in Barbara’s defense, Jenelle has put her through a lot.
Newlyweds Leah Messer and Corey Simms seemed to be going strong in their marital union. Though they discussed some trust issues they had before tying the knot, the couple appeared to be doing well overall. As for one of their twin girls Alianna, they stated her MRI results showed no signs of a problem so they are still uncertain as to her medical issues and reason for her slow development.
Meanwhile, MTV aired a 16 and Pregnant trailer which showed one of the new crop of girls beating on her baby’s daddy a la Amber Portwood. The trailer is below and the new season returns April 19 at 10/9c.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TEEN MOM 2 REUNION & THE 16 AND PREGNANT TRAILER?
Teen Mom 2ended last night with a finale episode that was filled with mixed emotions.
On one hand, we saw Leah Messer beginning a new life by tying the knot withCorey Simms (more wedding photos below of the two), the father of her twin girls. A sharp contrast to Leah’s story was Jenelle Evans, who got arrested for breaking and entering, plus marijuana possession.
Following Jenelle’s arrest, her boyfriend Kieffer Delpwas also arrested for doing cocaine. Upon making bail, Jenelle appeared to have learned her lesson, as she made up with her mom, agreed to pay back the credit card debt, and even promised not to see Kieffer anymore. That was however short lived as she went ahead and bailed out Kieffer behind her mother’s back. As we all know, the two are still seeing each other and in fact, both were arrested just days ago.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and her baby daddy Adam had a big blowup after Chelsea’s dad had his car towed away from their driveway. Chelsea vowed again that she was done with Adam, who seemed more concerned with his car and belongings than his own daughter Aubree on her first birthday.
Though Jo and Kailyn appeared to be making some progress when it came to the joint custody of their son, things went awry during their attempt at mediation. Hopefully the two parents, who both seem to care about the well being of baby Isaac, will be able to work things out for his sake. However, there were recent reports that Kailyn was trying to strip Jo of his custody rights following his arrest last month for being under the influence of marijuana
Airing next week will be a reunion show with the cast.
In other Teen Mom news, it seems Amber Portwood and baby daddy Gary Shirley are still going strong for the time being. RadarOnline is reporting the two dum dums lovebirds are making plans to move to LA together.
“They want to start a new life together and moving to LA would be the best way to start over,” a source said. “And of course it would also really help with their future projects like book deals, a clothing line and more television.”
There’s however one slight problem. While the courts lifted the no contact order prohibiting Amber from contacting Gary, the two are still not allowed to spend time together in the presence of their daughter, Leah. “The plan is to get the No Contact lifted between all of them, move to LA as a family, and live happily ever after,” adds the source.

According to a new report by the HollywoodLife, MTV’s Teen Mom 2 stars are earning way less than their counterpart Amber Portwood.
Months ago, following her arrest, Amber was forced to reveal her income to the courts during which she stated MTV paid her a whopping $140,000 for a six-month contract.
And now the HollywoodLife was able to confirm that Teen Mom 2 stars Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry make dramatically less than Amber, as in only $9,000 for the season.
“Things with Jenelle aren’t good. She has no money and can’t find a job,” a source very close to Jenelle reveals. “She is making around $9,000 for her first 12 episodes of Teen Mom 2, season 1.” A source close to Kailyn also shares the same sentiment: “Kailyn is also making around the same $9,000 mark!”
While the Teen Mom 2 salaries are very low for their first season, an increase will likely come during a second season. Especially when the very high show ratings are taken into consideration by the MTV network. The show averages over 3.5 million viewers a week.
As for how the ‘Teen Moms’ are getting by, they are able to supplement their MTV income by selling their stories and pictures to the tabloids, plus working other jobs and writing books. Kailyn is said to be considering releasing a manual for other teen moms.
Plus another report states Leah Messer, 18, only works one six-hour shift a week at a dental office in her hometown of Elkview, West Va. As for the Life & Style cover claiming Leah has a baby boy on the way, it is mostly false as Leah is not pregnant. She did however reveal in a recent interview that she and hubby Corey Simms, 20, would like to have a baby boy years down the line.
Meanwhile, with criminal charges and upcoming court appearances in tow, Jenelle displayed no worries this week when showed off her bikini body during a beach stroll in North Carolina. Those photos are below courtesy of the DailyMail.
