Oh girls of Teen Mom 2, what are we going to do with you? Last night,Leah Messer Sims Calvert walked down the aisle for a second time in her short life, and Jenelle Evans caused a scene at Jace's third birthday party. Anyone want to chip in for a Mom-of-theYear trophy with me? Chelsea Houska celebrated her twenty-first birthday, and Kailyn Lowry got engaged to Javi and Jo let out a sigh of relief that she was now someone else's problem. Good times, right?
The episode starts with Leah cooking breakfast with her dad, and we learn that she hasn't seen him since she was thirteen. She tells him what a great provider Jeremy is, and he's happy to be back in his daughter's life. I wish he'd turn his NASCAR ballcap around so I could see who his favorite driver is. #rubbinisracin'
Chelsea is moving yet again (what is this…like the fourth time this season alone?), and she takes Aubree to her mom's after daycare. She's planning for her twenty-first birthday, and her mom offers to watch Aubree so she can celebrate. Aubree's birthday is not long after Chelsea's, and Chelsea's mom asks if A-D-A-M will be attending her party. Chelsea turns on the whine and says she doesn't want to talk about him under any circumstances. Her mom praises her maturity.
Back with Kieffer, Jenelle is stressed out because her roommate is moving out, and she's short on cash from her boyfriend's mooching ways because her Internet job isn't paying as much as she'd hoped. She heads to her mom's house to discuss Jace's upcoming third birthday. Wait, my bad…she really just wants to complain to Barbara about her roommate and collect her mail. She reveals to her mom that she's dropped out of school due to the stress from her legal troubles with Gary and her boob job…both good reasons. Jenelle can barely keep her eyes open as she tells her mom that Kieffer is moving in with her. Barbara tells her daughter that she's planned Jace's party for the following day at a local tumbling Jim. Jenelle is upset that she didn't get more time to invite her friends, but she warns her mom she will be bringing Kieffer.
After enduring weeks of unwanted attention, confrontations with know-it-all Twitter freaks fans, and tabloid speculation, Taylor Halbur has confirmed that she and Teen Mom 2 baby daddy Adam Lind are expecting a baby of their own this August.
Why one would submit to sexy times with Adam is beyond my comprehension. I mean, he's no Ryan Edwards in the looks department, and he treats Chelsea Houska – and their three-year-old daughter Aubree – worse than yesterday's trash. Anyone else remember his "little bastard" comment? I rest my case.
Anyway, in a recent interview, Taylorconfirmed the pregnancy, addressed Adam's less than stellar reputation, and revealed their current relationship status.
"I decided not to [previously] confirm the pregnancy for a few reasons," Taylor said. "First of all, I didn't want to put my family in the middle of all the chaos it would make. Also, Adam and I decided that we didn't want to make it public for the sake of our child. We knew there would be a lot of backlash from the viewers of the show."
It was another big night on the longest running season of Teen Mom 2 EVER. Kailyn Lowry contemplated marriage, while Leah Messer Sims Calvert considered letting her biological dad be a part of wedding number two. Jenelle Evans had a hearing for her domestic abuse charges, and Chelsea Houska (surprise, surprise) dropped out of school took a leave of absence from beauty school.
Kailyn and Javi decided not to get married in Las Vegas. Instead, they plan to wait until after he's been accepted into the Air Force. She calls to wish him luck on his entrance exam, and he immediately calls back to tell her that he's passed. Kailyn offers to take him to a nice dinner to celebrate.
Jenelle and Kieffer are back nesting, but she's worried about the assault charges which have been pressed against both of them. She meets her friend for lunch and explains the situation. She's done with Gary…he even took her engagement ring off her finger before the cops arrested them. Jenelle is happy to have moved on with a more stable Kieffer. What? More stable than he was three episodes ago? Get it together, Jenelle!
Chelsea is missing classes because she has mono, but she's hanging out with a friend who has two children…one is Aubree's age. They discuss what is going on with Adam and custody, and Chelsea is getting less whiny with each passing week. Plus, her hair looks so much better dark–it seems she's finally getting herself together!
The second hour begins after Leah and Jeremy's courthouse nuptials. The couple can finally qualify for a joint loan on their dream home. Due to the added expenses, Leah wants to ask Corey for more child support…because he should totally help pay her mortgage. I kid, I kid, he needs to be supporting his daughters to the best of his ability. Leah's heard through the grapevine that Corey has gotten a raise, so she calls him to see if he's willing to modify their agreement without going through the courts. When he asks for her reasons, she offers up that he needs to pay more for the twins' clothing. He's willing to discuss it when they meet to trade off the girls.
Some days we just skip writing up her story completely because as we're forming the post, 12 new things pop up. It's an impossible task and sometimes we just can't, there aren't enough hours in the day.
Case in point: today. We started to type up an article about Courtland heading to court next week to face the charges of domestic violence toward Jenelle. While we were formulating it, two more things happened. Actually many more than that, but we're limiting this nonsense to three news items today and I use the word "news" very, very loosely here. Let's work our way backwards, shall we?
Jenelle has been rushed to the hospital via ambulance this afternoon. As she has shared before, she suffers from ovarian cysts and has been hospitalized for them in the past. It looks like that may be what's happening again.
Last night we were treated to two marriage themed episodes of Teen Mom. So as to not cause our readers to overdose on all things Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Messer Sims Calvert, we're splitting up the recaps. It's just our way of letting our wonderful readers recoup from one hour of the train wreck to the next. All in all, it was a night of proposals, weddings, and tears made in MTV heaven.
Jenelle and Gary are back in full romance mode, and her roommate questions whether Jenelle truly loves Gary or if she just hates being alone. Jenelle assures her that she isn't with Gary just because he's in the military and will make good money. He's good with Jace, and she just doesn't have the energy to look for another relationship. Jenelle admits that they both pick fights on purpose because they love the drama. All of those are wonderful reasons to stay with someone, right? Her roommate begs Jenelle not to accept any marriage proposals from Gary because the two clearly aren't ready to get married. Jenelle can't make any promises.
Speaking of marriage, Leah and Gary really want to get a loan on their dream house, and they are considering getting married at the courthouse before their actual planned wedding ceremony. She informs her mom of their plan, and her mom is fine with their plan. Her mom wants her to tell Corey beforehand, but she's excited when Leah asks her to be a witness. After chatting with her mom, Leah shares her early wedding plans with her sister.
Kailyn, 21, hasn't confirmed (or denied) the story yet, but In Touch claims that friends and family outed her pregnancy news to them. Let's hope she okayed that ahead of time!
Rumor has it that Kail and husband Javi Marroquin, 20, are ecstatic about becoming parents together. Kailyn's sister-in-law told them that the pregnancy wasn't planned, but they were hoping to add to their family down the road anyway. She tells the magazine, “They’re overjoyed! When Kailyn told Javi, he cried.”
This may sound a bit odd, but I've taken to thinking of Teen Mom 2 (actually the entire franchise) as MTV's personal Truman Show. It's not true, it's just the network's way of punking everyone everywhere. In fact, it's getting to be the only way I can rationalize these girls and their unapologetically abhorrent behavior (that includes you, Farrah Abraham!). It has to be some sort of joke or satirical take on modern society, right?
In my head, Jenelle Evans is using this as her doctoral thesis, and Leah Messer Sims Calvert is planning to use her footage to create a poignant yet ironic documentary on the importance of self-esteem and the teenage girl. Kailyn Lowry is working undercover to fix glitches in the family court that allow one parent to abuse the legal system just to get back at the ex who scorned them…she's good at her job, by the way. Finally, Chelsea Houska is having the last laugh, as she's actually fluent in eight languages (whining is the ninth!), and she's testing a scientific theory regarding how high pitched and nasally a voice must be before viewers press the mute button. Well played, ladies. Well played. Too bad my alternate Teen Mom universe is just one blogger's sad delusions.
So, let's get to last night's episode, shall we? Jenelle is recovering from her boob job, and she can't wait until she's fully recovered so she can spend some time with Jace. Sadly, that won't happen until the poor child is at least eighteen. Gary is taking good care of her, and Jenelle wants to talk about three things: 1) Kieffer; 2) what Gary thinks of her new ta-tas; and 3) Kieffer. Oh, wait… Kieffer has been texting Jenelle, and Gary isn't willing to lose his "career" to fight with such a loser if he decides to come visit. He'd rather get back to checking out Jenelle's new rack.
