Is MTV pulling the plug on Kail Lowry, Chelsea Houska, Leah Calvert, and Jenelle as promised? Yeah, NO. “Producers are getting ready for season 6,” a source revealed yesterday. “They are calling the girls to make sure everyone is on board.” Oh please, like any of them would say no to MTV money.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
Teen Mom 2 oompa loompa Leah Calvert is a mess. And I’m not talking about her hair and makeup this time. Financially… she’s a nightmare! And as we saw on Teen Mom 2 this week, Leah wants us to believe her money problems are Corey‘s fault. That didn’t go over well, so Leah took to Twitter to defend herself against the backlash from fans. It’s rich, err, no shade intended.
Perpetual victim Leah rewrites history like it’s her job, especially where Corey Simms is concerned, and I don’t trust a word that comes out of her mouth. Ever. If she had not wasted so much money on hair dye, a luxury washer and dryer, convenience foods, designer purses, and makeup, she’d have more money to go towards medical bills and household expenses.
Leah’slatest drama revolves around a new horse. Last year, Leah and Jeremy Calvert sold their home because it was not handicap accessible, which is understandable, and moved into an apartment until they found the perfect home. Leah set her sights on a ranch with horses for Ali‘s therapy – and I wouldn’t be shocked if she expects Corey‘s insurance to pay for it. #sarcasm
The Teen Mom stars – minus Farrah Abraham – and the Teen Mom 2 stars filmed an “Ask the Moms” special, where the “biggest Teen Mom fans” were given a chance to ask the MTV stars questions. This could be really bad or really good. If nothing else, let’s hope the fans questions were better than Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s predictable, misogynistic questions.
Drama queen, thy name is Leah, lives to share vague, negative thoughts on Twitter. Her latest bender included “this is one battle I will NOT back down from, and the bitterness to come will not be on my hands” and “any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time.”
Leah‘s fans instantly assumedshe and Jeremy Calvert were having marital problems. Because, Leah. The mom of three denied it, tweeting, “Jeremy and I are perfectly fine.” But Leah’s latest chat with her tabloid of choice sings a much different tune.
Jenelle Evans is still pregnant. But lucky girl was blessed by the court gods who don’t want to deal with her because her latest charges have been dropped. Barb brings Jace over, where he knocks over a plastic slide and nearly maims his cousin while Babs freaks out. Jenelle sits there and stares at the ground. Barbara worries about Nathan Griffith leaving Jenelle alone for 30 days – what if she gets on some ‘pregnant and single’ app! – while he goes to jail for his DUI. Barb is anxious that without Nathan, Jenelle will have to get herself to school alone. Jenelle is how old? Oh right – mentally she’s 12. And that’s generous.
However, Barbara is also worried because Nathan is violent. To be accurate, Nathan is Dr. Fakeyl and My. Lyes and he could snap at any moment – especially when his friend Mr. Alcohol joins the party! Jenelle claims they’re getting along better because they talk now. Oh that’s nice – I’m sure they have plenty of insightful things to say. Either that or the Dr. Phil Home Therapy app they downloaded and bought cliff notes for told them to just talk til they’ve got laryngitis. Hooked on Phonics Psychology, y’all!
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.
