To promote the new episodes, Kail and Leah have shared details about their individual struggles. The bottom line is, Kail is forever miserable and impossible to please, and Leah is worried about the enormous medical bills stemming from her daughter’s illness.
It's a little odd that MTV is calling this season 5 since the "first half" of this season has been over for a while and even had the reunion/catch up specials, too. For me, that means the season is over and we're on to season 6. I digress.
MTV released a new teaser trailer for the season 5 (and a half) premiere and it's just as we've come to expect – loaded with drama. Jenelle is battling with mama Barbara, who looks like she's had up to her eyeballs with Jenelle's non-parenting of Jace. Kailyn's son Isaac will be the voice of reason this time around, telling his mom to stop yelling. Things are looking rough for Jeremy and Leah and Leah cries about mounting medical bills (despite Jeremy making $5,000 a week not including their Teen Mom money…) and Chelsea battles with loser-for-life Adam Lind, who is dealing with another DUI and facing two years in jail/prison.
Leah Calvert is finally getting a job! And she's making some serious changes in her life.
TheTeen Mom 2star has decided to redirect her efforts from having babies to going to cosmetology school. I'm not sure if, given Leah's own hair, that was advisable but I'm sure someone will hire her!
Anyway, since change is in the air for Mrs. Calvert, Leah has chopped her technicolor Barbie locks into well, frankly – she resembles another reality TV mom from hell, Kate Gosselin! You remember 'The Kate'! Seriously it's interesting.
Perhaps the next time Dr. Drew presses Teen Mom 2 star, Leah Calvert, she will just keep any info she may have to herself. Or at least throw herself under the bus, and not her ex-husband!
On the first part of the Teen Mom 2 reunion, Dr. Drew asked the girls if there was anything that they ever kept hidden from producers. Most of the girls — smartly — denied hiding things from MTV's prying cameras. Except for Leah Calvert. After hemming and hawing and checking with her husband, Jeremy, Leah decided to drop a bomb about her and ex-husband Corey Simms' relationship up until the week she was set to marry Jeremy.
It's Dr. Drewtime… I hope you stretched your eyeballs because they're about to be doing a lot of rolling. And if you're wearing false eyelashes because you want to look just like your favorite Teen Mom 2 star, I suggest you take them off for fear of injury during this reunion.
The set this year is really something – don't you love the giant TM2 letters with glittering lights. Things begin with all four girls on stage. Jenelle Evans has been taking hair tips from Chelsea Houska (but Megan is her terrible hairsome clone!) - same color red, same teased style, other than that she looks very pretty and natural. Dr. Drew asks Jenelle how Jace is. She answers, "Ummmm… who? Oh yeah… ummm… oh he hasn't been paying rent so yeah!"
Chelsea's eyelashes are a travesty. Mind you, this is her profession… Lord help South Dakota.
Last night was the season finale of Teen Mom 2. Aaaahhh… Jenelle Evans oh my, my, my. Man every single season this girl does something to make me think less of her. I mean just when I think she can't top getting arrested for heroin after marrying someone she barely knows, she goes and makes a baby with another lunatic she barely knows not 3 months after having an abortion.
For all of that, I felt a little bad for Jenelle last night – if only because it became more than abundantly clear that she is not right. Nathan Griffithis a sociopath. Something is seriously wrong with him. We will be seeing him as the subject of a Dateline NBC mystery where he has done something truly heinous.
And also, this recap is sponsored (kidding, not really) by the maternity lingerie photo of Kailyn Lowry and topless Javi Marroquin that is framed above their bed. At least Snuffy was smiling and that may be the only smiling photo of her I've ever seen!
Last night on Teen Mom 2 MTV let us down massively with only grainy footage of Nathan Griffith's DUI. Nathan (and Jenelle Evans) claim that since he refused a breathalyzer Nathan wasn't actually drunk, or something.
Before we get into all of that, Chelsea Houska is trying to be more mature with Adam Lind. Chelsea has come a long way, and the only strides Adam has made is ditching that recedehawk, because he's still a COMPLETE jerk! At Aubree's pre-school pageant he drags new baby Paislee along and is snappish to Chelsea while they do crafts with Aubree.
Later in the car with Taylor (new baby mama with double-ee named spawn of Adam) he complains that Chelsea isn't going to get be in control of his relationship with Aubree much longer. Um… really, Dumee? Is this before or after you get in a felony car crash or ditch your daughter at your parents because you don't get your way.
