It's a little odd that MTV is calling this season 5 since the "first half" of this season has been over for a while and even had the reunion/catch up specials, too. For me, that means the season is over and we're on to season 6. I digress.
MTV released a new teaser trailer for the season 5 (and a half) premiere and it's just as we've come to expect – loaded with drama. Jenelle is battling with mama Barbara, who looks like she's had up to her eyeballs with Jenelle's non-parenting of Jace. Kailyn's son Isaac will be the voice of reason this time around, telling his mom to stop yelling. Things are looking rough for Jeremy and Leah and Leah cries about mounting medical bills (despite Jeremy making $5,000 a week not including their Teen Mom money…) and Chelsea battles with loser-for-life Adam Lind, who is dealing with another DUI and facing two years in jail/prison.
Leah Calvert is finally getting a job! And she's making some serious changes in her life.
TheTeen Mom 2star has decided to redirect her efforts from having babies to going to cosmetology school. I'm not sure if, given Leah's own hair, that was advisable but I'm sure someone will hire her!
Anyway, since change is in the air for Mrs. Calvert, Leah has chopped her technicolor Barbie locks into well, frankly – she resembles another reality TV mom from hell, Kate Gosselin! You remember 'The Kate'! Seriously it's interesting.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, who is 9 months pregnant and due June 29, celebrated with a baby shower over the weekend. "Had the first baby shower today," Jenelle tweeted. "Had a great time and got a lot of awesome gifts." Of course dad-to-be Nathan Griffith, Jace, and Barbara Evans were there too.
Jenelle announced the pregnancy – which they planned – in December and the gender reveal – it's a boy – in February. Nathan and Jenelle decided to name their son Kaiser, which means Emperor in German, and they decorated his nursery with a king theme.
Jenelle shared pictures from the baby shower via Facebook. You know, I have to give credit where credit is due, she looks happy and healthy. Happy can be faked for the camera – healthy not so much, so Jenelle's doing something right.
All is right in the world when Jenelle Evans has "love" in her life – with a man, mind you. Her son's love isn't enough. And the Teen Mom 2star recently took to Twitter to gush about her man of one year now Nathan Griffith. "I'm so blessed to have the relationship with [Nathan] like I do," she tweeted. "Breaking up every other day is a sad and unhappy relationship."
You see, with her due date (June 29) fast approaching, Jenelle feels the need to try to convince herself us that she and Nathan are the real deal and more in love than ever. So sad. Thanks to her Twitter addiction and MTV's cameras, we saw a completely different year than Jenelle's deluded mind saw.
During the most recent Teen Mom 2reunion special,Adam Lind laughed off his obsession with cars and reckless driving, claimed he was done breaking the law, and insisted he was totally focused on working and setting a good example for his children, Aubree and Paislee. Adam also blasted Chelsea Houska for her past mistakes.
Adam was arrested Saturday for driving with a revoked license. He's still in jail – and his status is listed as "court services probation hold" on the jail records. Starcasm also reported that Adam lost his job several weeks ago, adding, "Which means he may find it difficult to get a work release permit like he has in the past." Way to set that good example, Adam!
NOW Jenelle needs for her divorce from Courtland to happen ASAP. Sadly Courtland's original celebratory reaction to his divorce…
…has been replaced with playing dirty. Reportedly, if Jenelle and Courtland's divorce isn't finalized before the birth of her baby, state law says Jenelle's husband's name – Courtland – will go on the birth certificate until paternity is determined. So guess whose divorce lawyer is out of the country until July 11!
