Teen Mom 2 is trucking along and it’s a lot of the same old same old. Kailyn Lowryand ex Javi Marroquin were on good terms as of last episode, but we all knew that wouldn’t last long and low and behold, it hasn’t thanks to Javi requesting child support. Briana DeJesus is still feeling stressed and overwhelmed that baby daddy Luis isn’t stepping up to the plate and having an upcoming baby shower doesn’t change that. Leah Messer is seeing Ali’s specialist to get some answers on her recent breathing issues and Chelsea DeBoer is guiding Aubree through her last day of first grade. Finally, we have Jenelle Evans and the never ending drama between her and mother Barb about seeing Jace. It’s not quite as bad as last week’s blow up but clearly, there are plenty of leftover feelings in play.
Starting with Kail and Javi, Kail decides that since they are cool (for now), Javi can come over and spend some time with the boys. How nice of her! She is also relieved he’s coming over because she has a lot to do. While she starts to paint the baby’s room, Javi takes Isaac and Lincoln outside and helps Isaac learn to ride his bike. It’s going great and Javi has to ask Kail to come outside to see. She agrees but tells him to make it quick. Once she sees Isaac riding, she is super excited for him and Javi dutifully runs beside him in the street, making sure he’s safe from falling.
This is Jenelle Evans‘ third? fourth? engagement but the Teen Mom 2 star is confident she’ll make it down the aisle to everlasting love with David Easonso long as the TV cameras are rolling forever and ever. Ain’t that sweet!
Jenelle believes the secret to making their relationship work is because she and Daviddo everything together. Except effective parenting. Like, he’s even helping her launch and produce her upcoming makeup line! Dishing out relationship advice, Jenelle opines: “You stay busy, and if you stay busy there’s nothing really to argue about.” Too bad we see you – we see you on the TV!
We all tend to roll our eyes when reality stars cry “bad editing,” but in the case of Chelsea Houska, the woman has a point! If you’ve been watching Teen Mom 2 this season, you know that Chelsea’s scenes with her family have been brief and very laid-back. Instead of showcasing Chelsea’s happily-ever-after, the show is trying to stir up some drama and storyline where there isn’t one, according to Chelsea.
The Teen Mom 2 star took to Twitter during last night’s episode to share her increasing frustration over the way her scenes and interactions with daughter Aubree, 7, are being edited this season.
On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2, life is settling into a nice rhythm – Chelsea DeBoerhas more babies on the brain and Kailyn Lowry seems to have found some harmony with ex Javi Marroquin. Unfortunately, not all in Teen Mom land are settled – Leah Messer is in limbo waiting to find out why Ali has been having breathing problems, Briana DeJesus is still wary of baby daddy Luis’s intentions once the baby is here and Jenelle Evans, well, just brace yourself for another rough episode of her and mom Barb fighting over Jace. Let’s start with the good before the bad and the ugly.
Over at the DeBoer residence, Chelsea and husband Cole are setting up an adorable monthly marker photo shoot for baby Watson while Aubree helps. He is getting so big and he sure is cute, making Chelsea admit that she has an official case of baby fever. Cole is game for more and says he’s ready when Chelsea is ready. Chelsea floats the idea of right now and Cole doesn’t even flinch – he’s fully on board if that’s what Chelsea wants to do.
I haven’t seen the viewer numbers for last night’s MTV VMAs yet, but I wonder if it’s down by a lot compared to last year, since some genius decided to put it on the same night as the Game of Thrones season finale! Because of that, I skipped the VMAs for the first time in years, but priorities. Game of Thrones even trumped reality TV viewing last night. #sorrynotsorry
Anywhoodle. Here’s a few snaps of the few reality stars who showed up for the big night in L.A. Mostly Teen Mom stars, like Jenelle Evans, Gary Shirley, Leah Messer, Amber Portwood (and her new guy) and Farrah Abraham, who brought along daughter Sophia. Check out the photos below (including Nev Schulman, Christina Milian and more) and tell us which you look you like the best.
Did you watch the show last night? Did I miss anything good?
If you’re a Teen Mom 2 fan (or not), you likely saw the unintended reveal of Kailyn Lowry’s pregnancy news as it happened on Twitter, courtesy of fellow cast mate, Jenelle Evans. Tonight you get to see what happened behind the scenes. Well, whatever Kail is willing to show, that is.
Kail maintains that she didn’t announce her pregnancy on social media because she wanted control of her own story and more importantly, she hadn’t passed the 20 week scan to make sure everything is ok. I can respect that –while she did sign up for a reality show, I do think some things are a given when it comes to privacy and pregnancy is one of them. Too bad Jenelle did not get the memo on that one and tweeted Kail congrats on her third pregnancy, blowing her whole cover. Naturally, Kail was pissed and wanted to get to the bottom of it. Jenelle said the MTV crew told her but when Kail confronted them, she decided that was unlikely she’s right but more on that in a second.
Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 brings a lot less drama than the last few episodes, but the moms with big decisions looming are starting to run out of time.
Our first case is Briana DeJesus, who is now 24 weeks pregnant and trying to decide if she wants to give her baby up for adoption. Baby Daddy Luis still isn’t on the same page and is firmly against it but Briana pushes forward with meeting an adoption case worker anyway. Briana hopes getting more information to bring back to him will help to slowly change his perspective but it sounds like a lost cause – Luis wants none of it and Briana needs to make a decision soon, one way or another.
Jenelle Evans recently released a new memoirRead Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teen Mom, because I guess she wanted to explain how her life became so crazy. And, per the usual, according to Jenelle, everything is Barbara Evans‘ fault!
The Teen Mom 2 star purports that Barbara tricked her into signing over custody of Jace and blames her mom for an unhappy childhood after her father left – she claims Barbara pushed him out after an accident in which he fell down the stairs while holding her as a baby. Barbara reveals that Jenelle’s dad actually left when she was 3.
Barbara is furious by Jenelle’s latest betrayal and is adamant that Jenelle’s tales are “not even true!”
