I'll be honest, I've been so consumed with Jenelle Evanspenchant for crazy for the last several months, I've hardly given any thought to the other Teen Mom 2 stars who were back gracing our televisions last night. While most of the girls' drama is a product of their immaturity, one story line continues to break my heart and isn't a manufactured plot courtesy of MTV producers.
Since Leah Messer Simms Calvert gave birth to twins Aliannah and Aleeah with Corey Simms, viewers have watched the couple struggle with Ali's developmental delays as they travel from doctor to doctor and work with in-home therapists to figure out what is wrong. Now, at four-years-old, Ali has a diagnosis, and it's not as comforting as they had hoped. However, Leah shares in a recent interview that Ali's news has brought her closer to new husband Jeremy Calvert as well as made her a better co-parent with Corey.
Nothing that Teen Mom 2'sJenelle Evans does will ever surprise me, so I wasn't shocked to hear that her storyline for this season centers around having an abortion. Now pregnant with her new boyfriend's baby, she lets the MTV cameras follow her as she terminated a pregnancy with husband Courtland Rogers' child…and told him nothing about it. Keepin' it classy as always, Jenelle.
In a recent interview with The Stir Cafe Mom, Jenelle discusses her choice to share her abortion with the viewers. She says, "MTV was like, 'Do you want to film it?' And I said, 'Yeah.' They said, 'Are you sure,' and I said, 'Yes.' They're like, 'OK, you know a lot of backlash is going to come from this.' I'm like, 'Yeah, I know. It's OK.'" You know, I don't doubt that's how it went down at all. Jenelle just spewing single syllables as MTV counts its cash.
She continues, "At the time, when I filmed it and everything, I didn't know I was going to meet Nathan or have a baby or anything like that. You don't know what the future's going to hold. At the time I needed to do what I needed to do. I wasn't in the best situation. I was living back at my mom's, just got arrested for a felony charge, and I mean, I was in such a depressed state. It was just…my body was so out of whack. I was sick, so I went to the doctor for bronchitis, and that's when they told me I was pregnant. I just couldn't be with Courtland Rogers because he was abusive. He's not a good father figure. He has a child already and he's not involved in their life."
Jenelle Evans suffered a weekend full of relationship angst and social media meltdowns. In other words, it's Monday! Happy Monday, y'all!
On Friday, a source "close to" the Teen Mom 2 star shared, "Jenelle and Nathan fight non-stop. Nathan is being really mean to Jenelle and is not paying attention to her. Nathan is talking to other girls and that's why she's saying he isn't paying attention to her. Jenelle is really hoping Nathan straightens out and stops acting so mean and starts treating her better."
Are you ready for this?!? One of the girlsNathan Griffithhas been talking to is his ex-girlfriend, who is ALSO pregnant. Uh. Oh. SpaghettiOs.
Season five will feature Jenelle dealing with husband Courtland Rogers and boyfriendNathan Griffith, as well as three pregnancies, Chelsea coming to terms with Adam Lind having a second child, and Kail attempting to co-parent with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and welcoming a new baby with husband Javi Marroquin. Also, even though Leah andCorey Simms are each remarried to other people now, they come together a lot for the sake of their two girlssesss.
The Teen Mom 2 cast met up in New York City over the weekend to promote the new season and film their reunion show. Check out a few photos from the weekend below – and a new trailer courtesy of OK! magazine.
It's a great day to be Courtland Rogers, right? Well, I'm not quite sure I'd ever want to trade lives Freaky Friday style with Jenelle Evans' estranged husband, but he is having a big day. He's getting out of jail, y'all! While he's been no stranger to the Brunswick County jail in North Carolina, this recent stint began this past October for a probation violation. No stranger to drama and drugs (he is married to Jenelle after all!), it will be interesting to see what transpires on the outside.
The Teen Mom 2train wreck star has already moved on and is living in Myrtle Beach with her new beau and future baby daddy who seems to be every bit the winner to which Jenelle is typically drawn. I wonder how she will react to Courtland's release…Just kidding! I already know! How? Well, duh…Jenelle lives her life on the Internet, and she's already addressed the subject. Of course she has.
Well, dare I say that that some of the folks at Oh No They Didn't! may have a bit too much time on their hands? That, or someone at the site has the tragic (or fabulously awesome–I can't decide) job of monitoring Jenelle Evans every move on social media and dissecting them in light of her arrest record and the upcoming Teen Mom 2trailer.
Of course, as the age-old saying goes, "You can't out-twitter a tw@t twit" (or something like that) and now Jenelle is firing back at In Touch for picking up the story that claims she's been drinking during her pregnancy. You'll be totally shocked to learn this is all going down–where else?–Twitter.
Are you looking for books to add to your 2014 reading list? Teen Mom 2 star Grumpy CatKailyn Lowry recently shared that her memoir Pride Over Pityis coming soon to a book store near you!
Kail isn't joking about the long process. We first shared news about her book in April – and she said it was almost ready to go then. About the book, Kail originally tweeted, "Not so much about being a teen mom — more about living with an addict and absent father resulting in where I am now."
Mark your calendars for January 21st because our favorite Teen Moms are back with a fifth season of Teen Mom 2!
Jenelle Evans, Kail Lowry, Leah Calvert and Chelsea Houska are inviting us into their lives once again to share their ups and downs. This season they'll cover everything from pregnancies to weddings as well as custody battles and drug battles. Never a dull moment with these girls!
Since MTV moved the show from Mondays, their tagline "Mondays are a mother" no longer works. I vote that their new tagline should be "Tuesdays are a trainwreck".
