Before we get to the Teen Mom Young and Pregnant recap…I just can’t resist. Can we talk about Teen Mom 2 for just a minute (it’s basically the big sister to this motley crew anyway)? The whole episode is the girls prepping to leave for the reunion show, or there for filming. As they are getting ready, Jenelle is wearing a ‘Bearded Men Only’ tank top. There are also words coming out of her mouth but they really don’t compare to that tank. Its reminiscent of her Pink days and former workout gear she used to sport with Nathan, but now we are into the David Era. Honestly, that tank overshadowed the whole first half of the episode. Also Jenelle, no one else wants David, you’re totally fine.
They all somehow get themselves to California and mill around studios and hotels. At some point, Javi comes to visit Briana who is feeding the baby on the bed. He sits down and they flirt on the hotel bed, which honestly just seems efficient. If they just had all their dates in hotels on beds they could save a lot of time…
Last week I was off having fun (the kind that doesn’t include TV). I did watch last episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and we got our fifth and final baby: Izaiah (these girls really like to use a lot of vowels when naming their kids). Brianna and Danae had (another) fight and Danae is no longer welcome at her mom’s house. We got to talk about two engagements and one actually happened. And Kyler got a job. This week we are back to having the kind of fun that does include watching TV (and plenty of head shaking and eye rolling) so let’s dive back in!
This episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is titled the Co-Parent Trap. I find this title clever. Or I did, until I wondered if these kids were old enough to even get the movie reference and looked up the dates. The Lindsay Lohan remake of The Parent Trap was made in 1998! It’s 20 years old, the same age as the oldest two girls and OLDER than the other three. So now I feel ancient. That said, the 1998 remake was a decent movie. And the 1961 original is worth the watch as well. I also didn’t know that the original movie was based off of a book, but that makes sense for Disney. Anyway, I guess we should jump in and see what’s going on with our young moms and dads.
We get our first baby of the season and here’s hoping that all the daddies can be as attentive and nurturing as Sean’s first night home with Jade Cline and baby Kloie! If not, we have to hope that hard hitting relative like Aunt Vania will come in and set them straight! Let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
Please say ‘no’. It was a bit of a struggle to come up with a quote of the week on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. So I am going to reluctantly award it to Kyler again (he and Ashley are really stepping it up) with his “Please say no” comment when discussing homecoming. I feel this is generally appropriate since they all should have said ‘no’ without proper birth control.
Like flies caught in spider webs, these kids have sealed their futures together and they are sticky. Don’t get me wrong, we are sure to catch some epic breakups in the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant episodes to come, but raising babies is going to make these kids deal with each other for 18-years+ for the sake of their kids.
MTV is keeping with its commitment to prove to you that your life choices could have been worse, much much worse. So that means we get yet another pregnancy show focused on young people. This time around they are combining 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom by showing numerous young people’s stories and showing what happens after the babies get here. We also get a couple of 20 year old’s which does help bring a couple of the stories out of the high school setting. In addition, moving between multiple storylines provides a lot of drama and activity to follow – so let’s meet the couples of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
