Well, this is a little feel good post, and goodness knows we don't get many of those when it comes to the girls of MTV's Teen Mom franchise. Kaily Lowry Marroquin has certainly been having a great few weeks, as you know. Not only was her memoir released last month, it has already made it to the New York Times Best Seller List.
Pride Over Pity chronicles Kailyn's past struggles, including sexual assaults, drug use, and a stint in a homeless shelter. Now married with two children and in college, Kailyn hopes the book will be an opportunity for her fans to see why she is how she is and learn from her experiences.
Has it been whole year already? It probably has felt like a life time for Jenelle Evans, as she's been waiting all of this time to divorce Courtland Rogers so she can marry her latest baby daddy Nathan Griffith. Jenelle should be the Teen Mom poster child for good decisions…oh wait, that position is already being held by Farrah Abraham.
Jenelle has patiently waited out North Carolina's one-year separation period for a no fault divorce. Needless to say she was a very busy girl in that year, but still…her day has finally arrived!
I'd bet that one of the best things about being a reality star who decides to write a book is that you already have a built in audience. Seriously, has a reality star ever "written" a book that hasn't ended up on the New York Times Bestseller List? Remember when that recognition was reserved for esteemed authors and not real housewives?
The latest reality star to achieve this honor is Teen Mom 2'sKailyn Lowry with her recently released memoirPride Over Pity. Y'all know Farrah Abraham is seething (and organizing a totally impromptu outing that will somehow, someway be documented by paparazzi she didn't realize were in the area…) over this piece of news!
First up, Radar Online says the Teen Mom 2 star has lost weight through juicing and kick boxing and gained the confidence to move on with a new guy! "Chelsea goes to the gym 4-5 times a week,” a friend reveals. “Chelsea cooks nutritious meals for herself and Aubree. She makes veggie juice every morning. And little Aubree loves her broccoli!”
And that's not the only new addition to Chelsea's life – she's reportedly dating someone! “She doesn’t like to talk about it much, because it’s so new. And he’s in the public eye!” the friend hints. “But he’s very handsome and a great guy. She’s so happy!”
You can't say that Teen Mom 2'sJenelle Evans doesn't have a type when it comes to the guys she "dates"! Unfortunately for her (and mainly son Jace), that type tends to be loser convicts. Jenelle and her past lovers/husbands/fiances/ baby daddies could fill a photo album with their mug shots, and Jenelle would have a few gems in there herself!
As Jenelle waits to divorce her incarcerated husband Courtland Rogers so she can marry the recently arrested Nathan Griffith who is the father of her unborn child (while feuding with heroine chic homeless ex Kieffer Delp), there is one dude we never hear about–Jace'sactual father (although I hate to use the term father, as he's never acted like one). Well, now Andrew Lewis is back in the picture!
There is no denying that the girls of the Teen Mom franchise haven't always had it easy, and in some cases their overnight success made their lives into an even bigger train wreck. Of course, there are a few of the young mothers that are trying to get their lives back on track.
While one of her counterparts has used her fame to catapult herself into the porn industry, Kailyn Lowry is hoping to that teens can learn from her past experiences that she's sharing in her new book Pride Over Pity.
The Teen Mom 2 star's exchange with Keiffer became so heated she called him the N-word but Jenelle then admitted she is only staying with Nathan for the baby. Oh heavens.
Radar Online was able to snag the conversation, which was conducted via Facebook messenger. I'm not sure how it started, but Jenelle initially sang Nathan praises before ripping into Kieffer. “Let’s see…Personal trainer, football player, college student, completed his 4 year term in the marines, was deployed twice I think but def once, graduated high school from a private school, comes from a great family,” she wrote.
So, Jenelle is having a kid with someone and she doesn't know how many times they were deployed? And Mr. Great Guy with his DUIs, jail stints, kid he doesn't have custody of…
On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through theReal Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.
