Dr. Drew cuts right to the chase and asks for the status on Kail and Javi’s marriage. Supposedly Kail doesn’t know yet because it’s hard to make big life decisions while he’s gone. We all know she’s made up her mind, so maybe the life decisions she’s unsure of aren’t related to staying in the marriage, but rather what kind of visitation schedule Javi should have for Lincoln or how much child support she should demand. For now, she’s just focusing on her career. Dr. Drew high fives her for being the only one of all the teen moms to graduate from a 4-year university, which makes Kail tear up.
Last night was the first Teen Mom 2 reunion episode of the season and featured Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer, the moms who need the most help. Too bad the doctor in the house – Dr. Drew Pinsky – didn’t offer them any guidance. Rather, he avoided any deep discussion with them and tried to convince everyone that David Eason has been a stabilizing force. Hang up the white coat, Dr. Drew, you’re done.
The reunion starts with all the girls on the couch watching highlights from the season. Dr. Drew asks what jumped out for them watching the recap. For Leah, it was hard to see Ali getting worse throughout the season. Kailyn Lowry says there hasn’t been an easy moment for her the entire season. Jenelle gives the non-answer that they can all learn from each other, which prompts Dr. Drew to bring up social media drama between Kail and Jenelle, who are now pretending to be in a better place (they’re also on opposite ends of the couch). Chelsea Houska, who also had her own issues with Jenelle, tries to avoid more Jenelle rage and simply says all the girls follow each other on Instagram and Twitter. Leah attempts to cut the tension by sharing how nice it is to have the other girls to talk to. Chelsea adds that if she needed something, she could talk to these girls. I just imagine the producers giving them a pep talk before going onstage: “Ok, girls, let’s all pretend we’re best friends and the greatest support for teen moms in their twenties is other teen moms in their twenties.”
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.
Teen Mom 2 has come to an end, and while we don't know if it's forever or just for now, it's time for the cast to talk about their troubles with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
This is Teen Mom, where "promising futures gave way to daily struggles, such as poverty, addiction, family breakdowns, absentee fathers, and revolving door boyfriends," says Dr. Drew. "The pressures and responsibilities of motherhood can be catastrophic." Then, to prove his point, the TV doctor welcomes Leah Messer Simms Calvert, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, and Jenelle Evans to the stage and reminds us what happened this season.
Leah flip flopped between Corey Simms and Jeremy Calvert, but her Magic 8 ball ultimately told her to marry Jeremy. Also, Corey and Leah searched for answers for little Ali. Chelsea and Adam Lind hooked up sans birth control but avoided a second pregnancy. Then, hell froze over, and Chelsea realized that Adam is no good for her. #hallelujah
Kail fought with Jo Rivera. Kail fought with Javi Marroquin. Kail fought with anyone with a pulse. Kail and Javi got married… military benefits, yo!… Jenelle left her military man, Gary Head, after he beat her up and reunited with her pot head, Kieffer Delp, after he wooed her with the green hoodie. Sadly, Kieffer introduced Jenelle to heroin.
It's that special time of the season we've been waiting on for what seems like eons…the season finale of Teen Mom 2. Last night, the girls and their children/parents/boyfriends/users sat down for a two hour chit chat with MTV's resident "therapist" Dr. Drew Pinsky. Wait…what's that you say? It wasn't the season finale? Mid-season finale? What the–? I have never heard of such a thing. You know what this means, right?
Of course, leave it to MTV to make sure the true finale will be total chaos. Next week the insanity of broken relationships, drug abuse, and violence spirals out of control when we are treated to the midseason premiere. I can't keep up, so let's just focus on last night's drama, shall we? Take it away, Dr. Drew!
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.
