Is anyone else tired of watching a reality show where the stars share only certain parts of their life they are comfortable with and demand privacy on others? They signed up for a reality show and collect a paycheck to show their lives, good and bad, right? Well, on last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, there is one instance where I think privacy is allowed (even if you’re Jenelle Evans) and that’s announcing your pregnancy.
Unless you have been living under a rock, we all know that Jenelle is pregnant again with boyfriend David Eason. For all you rock dwellers, you get to see her denial of the situation play out in front of the cameras. While I don’t think Jenelle handled it in a way that helped her haters any, I can understand why she wouldn’t want to announce she’s pregnant before she is at a place she’s comfortable with. Every woman should be allowed to do that, even a Teen Mom none of us can stand.
Check out the best Instagram snaps this week from our favorite reality stars. Above: Southern Charm star Patricia Altschul launches a new caftan company. She shared, “Our caftan company will be up and running in a month or so. You will be able to send a photo of your pet to our website which will refine it and print the image on beautiful fabric. The embellishment will be done in India. #chic #pet #southerncharm.”
Despite the summer weather, an icy chill has fallen on this episode of Teen Mom 2. Well, for everyone but Chelsea Houska, who is excitedly expecting a baby with fiancé Cole DeBoer. All she needs is her social media announcement because as we all know, it’s not real until it’s Facebook official.
Chelsea is feeling all the first trimester fun: nausea and tired, which is preventing her from taking a shower today. She’s also feeling anxious because it’s so early in her pregnancy and she can’t feel kicks yet. Luckily, she finds a heartbeat while using her home Doppler, so that helps ease some of her fears. A few days later, everything is confirmed by the doctor as a healthy pregnancy after Chelsea gets her first ultrasound.
Since MTV doesn’t give the Teen Mom 2 cast a platform to weigh in on the weekly episodes (like Bravo’s blogs by the Real Housewives) when the show is airing, they take to social media to clear things up on editing and more. This week Jeremy Calvert wanted to set the record straight on what really happened when he took Adalynn to Ohio during the West Virginia flooding.
Jeremy took to Instagram video to vent about the shady editing of this week’s Teen Mom 2. Needless to say, he’s a little frustrated since he did try to reach Leah Messer. “So, to clarify tonight’s episode about me leaving West Virginia and not informing Leah on my travels.. I texted her at 6:42pm and did not get a text message back until 9:38 pm when I was already in Ohio.”
Double Teen Mom 2, double the fun. That’s right, fans, we got a bonus episode this week and I’m ready to bring you the highlights.
Leah Messer is moving on to bigger and better things in the form of a $110K house. She brings the girls and her friend along to see it because apparently, the owners don’t mind if she creeps around the property with the camera crew whenever she wants. Motivated to sell, I guess! There are still numbers to crunch and a wheelchair ramp to put in, but she’s optimistic. She also remains optimistic about Ali’s determination to do normal kid things, even though she’s falling a lot. Leah says as much to Corey Simms at one of their drop offs and Corey agrees for some reason. Ultimately, Leah does end up getting the house and it’s only eight miles from the girls’ school, which she is thrilled about because that means it will only take her 15 minutes max to get there. It also means she will only be 45 minutes late instead of over an hour. It’s a win for all.
This week is a little bit of a cease fire on Teen Mom 2. Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith have resolved one issue in court (assault) and seem to be on their way to resolving custody of son Kaiser out of court (sort of). Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin don’t have much to say to one another. It’s obviously the beginning of the end for these two when it comes to playing out on TV but it is still unclear exactly when the marriage started to really go south. Maybe all will be revealed in the episodes to come.
As we join Kail, she’s trying to prepare the boys for Javi to come home while juggling college courses and cleaning up dog vomit. You would think after having two little boys, Kail would be better equipped to deal with some dog barf but she recoils from the situation with more fear than she did jumping out of that plane! But Kail has big things going on in her life to focus on. According to Dr. Drew (how involved is he is these poor girls’ lives?), Kail would be the first teen mom EVER to graduate from a four year college. Coupled with the fact that Kail’s mom never went to college, Kail is super motivated to finish school and while Javi might not be around, luckily Jo Rivera and Vee Torres are around to help pick up Isaac from school and cheer on Kail. It’s nice to see how well they are all getting along and creating their own modern family.
Teen Mom 2 fans, we are back with a new season, new drama and more interaction with the long suffering Teen Mom 2 producers. These Teen Moms have been busy since the reunion: Kailyn Lowry is on the verge of divorce from Javi Marroquin, Chelsea Houska is on the verge of marriage to Cole DeBoer, Jenelle Evans is on the verge of jail time and well, Leah Messer is on the verge of a nervous breakdown if she doesn’t find her damn keys.
Kail and Javi have some major unresolved issues happening right now in their marriage. So Kail copes with her issues by jumping out of a plane, which seems like a reasonable response to a crumbling marriage. If throwing yourself out of a plane is symbolism for what’s going on in her relationship, message received loud and clear.
The holidays are officially over, and as a reward for surviving the networks are bringing us new seasons of Celebrity Apprentice (with brand new host Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Teen Mom 2 season 8. There’s also an all-new episode of Vanderpump Rules.
