The other shows on our list saw an increase this week. Most impressive, 2.366 million watchedBasketball Wives L.A., which is a season three high and a whopping 500,000 more views than last week. Teen Mom 2saw a bump up of 300,000 when 2.171 million tuned in to see Jenelle fail a drug test.
Last night onTeen Mom 2, some girls celebrated happily wedded bliss (again) and other girls headed towards happily unwedded unbliss (again) and some girls cried all the way home from jail (again).
Let's start and end with a positive! To start, Chelsea Houska finally accomplished something other than dumpingAdam Lind. Which speaking of positives: he was NOT presents on last night's episode. Go, MTV! Anyway, Chelsea graduated with her 600 hour aesthetics certificate and is on her way to getting her very first job. "I know I had Aubree young, but I've still accomplished what I wanted," Chelsea says. Good for her.
Jenelle Evans has found true love, y'all, and she'll confront anyone who wants to try to rain on her parade with new beau Nathan Griffith. As you know, the Teen Mom 2 star is pregnant with a boy, and Nathan is the father…but he's not to be confused with Courtland Rogers, her husband who just got out of (or sent back to? I can't keep up!) jail. Healthy, healthy, healthy!
Apparently, Jenelle's army of Twitter followers tend to rile her up from time to time, most recently alleging that Nathan has been less than faithful during the reality star's pregnancy. I'll never believe it. He's the world's best boyfriend and father! You know who agrees with me? Jenelle. You know who is hilariously bringing back Jenelle's attorney Dustin Sullivan courtesy of her Instagram? Rihanna. It may not make sense in the context of this post, but it's the funniest thing I've seen in a while.
Congrats are in order! Teen Mom 2 starChelsea Houskabought a house! Chelsea, aka the Teen Mom with her head screwed on straight, shared the photo of her new house on Facebook this afternoon. Chelsea shared, "Officially a homeowner!"
Our writer Melissa noted "not surprised the house is burnt orange, her favorite color!"
Clearly Chelsea is making sure to secure her finances before those MTV checks dry up. She seems to be sensible with her money – she's even still driving the same car! Chelsea is also one of the few out of all the Teen Mom stars who works in the real world, outside of the show and focuses on being an awesome mom to her cutie patootie Aubree.
Last week, a "production source" claimed, "There is no season 6 of Teen Mom 2 – season 5 is the girls' last season. They want to end with high ratings."
Then a second source reported that the current season of Teen Mom 2 will be shown in two parts — 5A (currently airing) and 5B (currently filming) – and then it's lights out for Kail, Leah, Jenelle, and Chelsea.
On last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, relationships were put to the test and bacon caused a marital breakdown.
Leah Calvert has made nagging and whining a full-time job. Usually I like Leah – aside from that mop of crazy she insists is hair (we don't believe you, member of the Dolly Pardon Wig Club!) – but last night she was working my last nerve. Look girl from WV, you can't have you pepperoni roll and eat it too!
Five minutes after the twins go to Corey Simms' for his weekend, Jeremy surprises Leah by letting her know he's headed to PA to work for a couple weeks. Leah is not happy. She tells Corey his job makes her feel like a single mother and that while he's gone she gets really overwhelmed. She's also frustrated that he doesn't validate her feelings by listening to an extended whiny-fest about how haaaaard lyyyyyyfe eees when he's gone. She thinks they should go to counseling to strengthen their marriage, but Jeremy is against it. He ain't payin' nobody his hard-earned money to tell him what's wrong with him.
In December, Jenelle and her current jerk boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, caused such a ruckus, a neighbor called the police. And a pregnant Jenelle was hauled off to jail for disturbing the peace. As per usual, Jenelle was bailed out of jail by the super hero of lawyers, Dustin, and she immediately took to Twitter to laugh and lie about it.
In January, Jenelle and Nathan were fighting because Nathan was texting with his ex-girlfriend, Brianna Doris, behind Jenelle's back. So, at one really nasty point in the argument, Jenelle hit record on her cell phone. And the video found its way to Radar last week. #PayDay
Now, in March, Jenelle wants us to believe that her relationship with Nathan is perfect, because, you guys, that stuff was wayyyy so longggg ago!
