Welcome to season 8 of Teen Mom 2! Some things haven’t changed at all, like Jenelle Evans’ attitude long standing feud with mom Barb over custody of Jace and love for all things drama, but there are plenty of other changes going on with the cast from new babies to new teen moms joining the show in the form of Briana DeJesus.
Speaking of, Briana is already familiar with Kailyn Lowry’s now ex-husband, Javi Marroquin after meeting a few years ago. We get to see some footage of their friendship in action when Javi drops by her dressing room after a taping of the Teen Mom 2 after show. Javi flirts good naturedly, saying Briana’s mom was trying to hook them up but that won’t work now since Briana is pregnant with boyfriend (?) Luis. She flips her hair and smiles back but goes on to say that things are going really well with Luis and they plan on moving in together. Oh, and she’s having another girl.
Happy Monday! Teen Mom 2 returns for its eighth season tonight and almost EVERYONE is pregnant!
We catch up with Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer tonight and we have a fifth mom in the mix this time around! Teen Mom 3 star Briana DeJesus is joining the show this season! When the season starts off, Briana is pregnant with her second child and we’ll get a glimpse of her journey as she raises daughter Nova – who has grown SO much since we saw her last!
It’s a big, big world but wherever Jenelle Evans goes, mayhem follows! In the latest, Jenelle, David Eason, and their brood – including Jace – hit the beach for a family vacation to St. Thomas, but before they landed on home soil, Jenelle was accused of attacking a fan at the airport.
Jenelle claims a “starstruck” fan refused to stop taking photos of them, even though Jenelle told the woman she was scaring Jace and David’s daughter Maryssa. MTV cameras were also filming the family vacation, and apparently captured the airport drama. Jenelle says after the woman refused to leave her alone, she insisted the Teen Mom 2 crew remove the over-zealous viewer from her vicinity. And that’s where the drama ended.
Jenelle Evans was back in court with her mom Barbara Evans to sort out custody of her oldest son Jace, 7. According to sources, the Teen Mom 2 star was unsuccessful in her latest attempt to get full custody, but they were able to work out a co-parenting like arrangement.
WV is a little-itty bitty state where everybody knows everybody – this weekend Jermey Calvert was caught posing on Instagram with Leah Messer. Jeremy denies that he’s rekindling things with his infamous ex, and explains they ran into each other at a bar, and decided to show the world that despite what we see on Teen Mom 2 they actually get along pretty well!
The chance meet-up with Leah was just that – serendipity! “It wasn’t planned or anything,” says Jeremy. “It just happened we went to the same place. Me and Leah are not back together, we’re strictly friends.”
Kailyn Lowry hasn’t officially revealed the identity of baby no 3‘s father, but she’s certainly taken the time to slam him publicly – even accusing him of abandoning her during pregnancy!
Instead of allowing Kailyn to back him out of the spotlight, the rumored baby daddy, Chris Lopez is kinda outing himself to fight back against the Teen Mom 2 star’s allegations. Chris and Kail “briefly” dated after she split from Javi Marroquin. Their divorce isn’t finalized, but Kail has certainly moved way on!
Adam Lind continues to be a hot mess who can’t get his act together. Maybe he should see Leah Messer for some life coaching? Adam has failed not one, but TWO court-ordered drug tests, which could jeopardize custody with his two daughters Aubree and Paislee.
In addition to having a lengthy custody battle with ChelseaHouska, Adam is also in court with baby mama no. 2 Taylor Halbur. It seems the ladies, working together for the safety of their daughters, took their concerns that Adam was using to the courts. He was ordered to take a drug test, which he failed, twice. Both Methamphetamine and Amphetamine were found in Adam’s system. This is just the latest in a string of sad legal issues the Teen Mom 2 star has found himself dealing with.
Jenelle Evans is pretending to be a grown up adult again – or at least she’s trying to play that role on TV! Despite juggling custody battles, baby daddies, babies galore, the Teen Mom 2 star brags that life is perfect – like for real. And she definitely has her act together this time too! [collective eye roll!]
With three kids (and three different daddies), Jenelle has decided the baby factory is definitely closed. Jenelle and fiancé of the month David Eason thought about a fourth kid, but then they remembered that parenthood is like so challenging! “David and I talked about it one day recently and how complicated things can get with Kaiser and Ensley together. They remind us why we are done.”
“But I love it,” Jenelle adds, “and wouldn’t trade my role as ‘mom.'” Not again, anyway.
