Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
The new season of 16 & Pregnant premiers on MTV Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

No, no, no! Corey’ Simms‘ camo hat seems to be prohibiting rational thoughts from coming out of that noggin of his!
The current issue of Us Weekly has those close to the jilted Teen Dad–whose wife of six months Leah Messer confessed to cheating on him a week before they were married–speculating that he wants her back! The couple’s divorce was highlighted on the final episodes of this season’s Teen Mom 2 after Leah spilled the infidelity beans, claiming Corey wouldn’t have sex with her in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Well, if that is the case, her cheating must have been justified! #dumbestexcuseever
The pair’s divorce was finalized in June of last year, with Leah jumping straight into another relationship, another cohabitation, and another engagement rather quickly with new beau Jeremy Calvert. Leah even tragically suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant by Jeremy. However, none of this information seems to dissuade Corey from wanting to reconcile with the mother of his twin daughters.
A “friend” of his explains to the magazine, “Corey is still crazy for Leah. He doesn’t want her to marry Jeremy.”
Another source laments, “He did all he could to make it work, as she’s the only girl he ever loved.”
Said source must also be a mutual friend of Leah’s, because he/she believes that Corey’s hopes are a lost cause, sharing, “Leah will always care about Corey, but she’s happy with Jeremy. Watching this season made her relive their problems.” Their problems. Could “their problems” have something to do with the fact that Leah cheated on her groom-to-be and then blamed the demise of their marriage on him not wanting to buy a new trailer? Nah, probably different problems…
Not so fast there, Lauren! Apparently Leah has amped up her “no sex before the wedding is a valid reason to cheat” excuse to include–dum da dum dum–porn! Specifically, Corey was watching porn instead of bedding his fiance. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am shocked and appalled. Corey watches porn? Corey, the young twenty-something male who didn’t want a trailer upgrade and needed subtitles, watches porn? If she had told me he read classic novels until late into the night so he was too tired for sexy time or even that his Sudoku addiction interfered with his libido, I’d believe her…but porn? That’s a stretch.
In a sneak peek video posted below, the couple is seen discussing their sex life (or apparently lack thereof) with Dr. Drew in a premiere for tomorrow night’s final episode. While Corey claims the pair had a very active and normal sex life, Leah maintains that he wasn’t very affectionate towards her in the weeks leading up to their wedding due to all the porn he was watching.
“I felt like you was looking at her, and thinking…I mean, I kinda felt like that was cheating,” Leah tells Corey during the Drew-led conversation. Eh, maybe, but not as much cheating as actually having intercourse with someone other than your partner. But that’s just me.
Enough on the second installment of Teen Moms, the original Teen Moms need some attention too! Realityweeklymagazine.com is reporting that Corey isn’t the only one from the franchise chasing down an old flame. Apparently, Maci Bookout has her sights set on ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in light of her recent break-up with long-time love Kyle King. You recall that the pair didn’t make it after alleged pressure on Kyle from Maci to marry her ASAP. Of course, does anyone think that Maci was ever really over Bentley’s dad?
Yet another “source” close to the young mom reveals, “He’s always been the one. She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”
Ahh, young love. I wonder if these girls will ever learn that being “hot” isn’t the most important building block in a healthy, stable relationship. Probably not.
The conclusion of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10 PM ET.
DO YOU THINK COREY REALLY WANTS TO RECONCILE WITH LEAH? WILL THE TWO GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON HIS PORN WATCHING LEADING TO HER CHEATING? WAS MACI EVER REALLY OVER RYAN?
Two conflicting reports came in this week on Teen Mom 2′s resident jailbird, Jenelle Evans, and who will have custody over her son Jace. Currently, her mother Barbara Evanshas temporary custody of him until June 10. And an insider is blabbing that Janelle wants her mother to permanently adopt Jace, so she can continue to live her hard-partying lifestyle.
Talking to Reality Weekly, the source states, “She has told friends that she knows it means giving Jace up forever, but she genuinely thinks she’s doing the right thing. Jenelle would rather spend her time and money on herself than her son, which is why she wants her mom to officially adopt him. It’s really sad how selfish she is; her priorities are completely out of whack.”
Reality Weekly reports another weighing factor for the 20-year-old MTV star, is the fact that she no longer wants to keep paying her mother child support! Yes, the mag states that Jenelle is always short on money and get this, she reportedly feels the $30-a-week she is being forced to give Barbara is a “burden.” Yikes.
So if Mom adopts Jace, that would end the child support obligation and Jenelle would have more money to spend on her first love, weed. At the moment, Jenelle has scheduled visits with her son, which she is allegedly blowing off because she was has way better things to do (like post to her social media accounts incessantly).
The report recalls a specific incident where Jenelle missed out on a visit because she was too hungover: “A couple of weeks ago she was supposed to look after Jace so that her mom could have a break, but she canceled because she was too partied out. The next day when it came time for her to see her son, she slept in instead.”
“Jenelle always chooses partying over spending time with Jace,” the insider continues. “She resents staying at her mother’s with the baby when she could be out partying.”
Avoiding obligations because of your wicked benders might be okay for a college freshman once or twice, but it’s not looking too hot for a single mom. Due to this, Jenelle and her mother’s relationship is extremely strained. Another source chimes in and says, “Her relationship with her mother is still terrible. She still brags about partying every day and has practically no relationship with her son.”
Jenelle however took to her Facebook to deny the report, claiming: “My mother will never adopt Jace. As usual … I’m getting myself 100% straightened out before I get him back.” That might be true, but it’s worth noting that Jenelle was arrested twice in the same week this year, and has had multiple restraining orders filed against her. A volatile, violent person is not an ideal situation for a child, and Jenelle has a lot of work to do before convincing anyone she’s ready to be a mother.
Luckily, Jace has Barbara to advocate for him. A source says, “Barbara has done everything she can to make her daughter take responsibility, but it hasn’t worked. Her mom just wants what’s best for Jace. She can see that Jenelle is not in a place to be a mother. Ultimately, Jenelle’s mom loves Jace enough to step up and adopt him.”
The finale of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK JENELLE’S MOM BARBARA SHOULD ADOPT JACE? DO YOU THINK JENELLE IS SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING HER LIFE ON TRACK?
Things are already looking bleak again for Teen Mom‘s Leah Messer, who recently went through a miscarriage.
A new report alleges that she caught fiance Jeremy Calvert making plans to hook up with a stripper. “While Jeremy was in the shower, Leah saw that he received a text. She soon realized that Jeremy was chatting with another girl!”
Like many cheating fools before him, Jeremy tried to cover it up and say he was talking to a co-worker. Unless he works at Bada Bing’s, that excuse didn’t hold up, and soon Leah discovered the texting woman was a Lady Of The Pole. Apparently, visiting strip clubs is one of Jeremy‘s hobbies, and the report says he visits clubs often. Leah was not happy, the source says: ”She couldn’t believe that Jeremy would betray her. Leah broke down crying.”
While some women would leave or end the relationship at the first hint of messing around, Leah will probably continue as normal. The source explains, “Leah is terrified to be alone. She would rather be with a bad guy like Jeremy than no guy at all.” We hope Leah gets strong and maybe pays a visit Dr. Drew to perform some self-reflection, and then promptly dump the deadweight, if it turns out he is indeed cheating.
Speaking of the lovely Dr. Drew, fellow Teen Mom stars Kailyn Lowry, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout visited the set of his show Life Changers to do some crying and also shake their heads at their troubled cast mate, Jenelle Evans. Catelynn was ultimately supportive of Jenelle, who is currently entangled in several legal dramas, “That’s her life. We all need to be there and support her and help her choose a different path in life.”
Kailyn was a bit more negative, comparing their standards to Jenelle’s, saying “Her best might not be our standards of best.” But, she quickly changed her tune, and had this somewhat optimistic piece to add, “I think she’ll figure it out.”
Kailyn’s comments are not so surprising as a report came out two weeks ago stating Jenelle not only owes Kailyn money, but also back-stabbed Kailyn by stealing her boyfriend!

TELL US: DO YOU THINK JEREMY IS CHEATING ON LEAH WITH A STRIPPER? DO YOU THINK TEXTING IS CHEATING? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S CURRENT PROBLEMS? WILL SHE FIGURE IT OUT EVENTUALLY?
The relationship drama never ceases with the ladies of Teen Mom (seasons 1 AND 2) as y’all well know. This week alone it was reported that a few of MTV’s chosen teen mothers want to get pregnant again. However, if they keep breaking up with their boyfriends, that thankfully won’t happen.
The main young mom to which I’m referring? Maci Bookout who appears in the first installment of the franchise. She is apparently back on the market as Hollywoodlife.com is reporting she has broken up with boyfriend of nearly two years Kyle King.
The blog cites an UsWeekly article which states the couple have broken up just a few days before celebrating what would have been their two-year anniversary. Viewers know that Maci has been anything but shy regarding a wedding with Kyle, and she has also spoken more than once about quickly starting a family with her beau. Those assertions allegedly caused many an argument between the pair, as Kyle wasn’t totally on board with kick starting such a planned future.
An insider claims, “Maci wanted something way more serious. She was never happy enough just being a couple. She always wanted more, more, more, whether it was a ring or another baby.”
The source continues, stating that Kyle was more than content to just date and live together at their place in Tennessee. “He broke it off. It’s really sad because they love each other but she pushed him away.”
Maci, however is denying these claims, and where do reality stars go to denounce such rumors? None other than their personal soapbox, Twitter. The MTV sweetheart tweeted yesterday, “Hahaha well once again the tabloids are wrong … Don’t waste your time!”
The magazine is alleging that that the straw that broke the camel’s back happened while Maci and Kyle were recently visiting California. After a heated fight about the state of their relationship on said trip, Maci allegedly left Kyle in a tizzy and stayed out partying until 3 AM. When will these girls learn that partying isn’t going to solve any of their problems?
The insider reveals, “Maci’s been partying way more lately [and] Kyle is not okay with it. She’s just not the girl he started dating.” Sounds like someone didn’t sign up for the life that comes with dating a “reality star.” Kind of makes me respect the poor guy. Kind of.
If these reports are on the up and up, it seems that Maci isn’t taking too well to the single life. The source claims, “She’s super, super upset right now, [b]ut she’s trying to keep herself busy. She’s just focused on Bentley and being an amazing mom.” If the break-up rumors are true, I do hope that Maci is focusing more on her son and less on the party circuit to get over ol’ Kyle.
In other news, Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom revealed that Leah Messer had cheated on her husband Corey Simms a mere week before the two got married. We all know now that Leah and Corey have divorced, and she has moved on with Jeremy Calvert.
The same site is alleging that Corey is doing his best to win back the mother of his twin daughters.
Citing an In Touch report, a friend of the former pair says, “Corey dumped his girlfriend and bought a home in order to lure Leah into his life again.”
There has been speculation that both Corey and Leah were unfaithful during the course of their courtship and union. Leah recently admitted to having sex with her ex a week before their wedding, while Corey has been accused of cheating while the duo was still married… but after they separated.
The insider tells the magazine, “He wants to prove to her that he’s a changed man this time.” I would like to think Corey is a changed man, however, this kind of change isn’t what I was hoping for in the young father.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE RECENT TEEN MOM NEWS? DO YOU THINK THAT KYLE HAS BROKEN UP WITH MACI? SHOULD COREY TRY TO WIN BACK LEAH? SHOULD SHE GO BACK TO HIM? ARE THESE QUESTIONS AS RIDICULOUS TO YOU AS THEY ARE TO ME? SAY IT AIN’T SO, COREY!
According to a new report by Star magazine, a source is being quoted as stating that they “are hesitant to get pregnant again while involved with MTV.”
The source goes on to say that Maci “really wants a daughter with her current boyfriend Kyle King.” What better way to liven up her storyline than to show her adjusting to being the mother of a girl, and shopping for little girl clothing? Think of all the adorable pink merchandising opportunities!
Leah, who recently became pregnant with fiance Jeremy Calvert, and then miscarried, is “still hoping to have a third child” with Jeremy. Again, this would be another great path to pursue; watching Leah juggle twins, her ex Corey, and a new baby. The only teen mom I worry about is Chelsea, who despite everything, still wants another baby with Adam Lind. The source agrees with me, and thinks another kid is a bad idea, with or without MTV: “She said she didn’t want to make babies with anyone else. It’s a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.”
A true recipe for disaster is attempting to have more children after you’ve become used to a huge MTV paycheck. Then again, these ladies may have just come down with a case of I Want My Own Show-itis.
In other news, unfortunately, there is more to report on Jenelle Evans. We last reported she was facing jail time for violating a restraining order against ex-roommate Hannah Inman, which included accusations of Jenelle allegedly posting naked photos of Hannah to Jenelle’s Facebook fan page. It didn’t come as a shock to find out that Jenelle is now being accused of harassing yet another friend, Amber Lane.
In a new report, Amber alleges Jenelle cyber-bullied her: ““I’ve spent days crying over what Jenelle posted about me online calling me a slut and a whore and reading comments from her thousands of fans saying I should kill myself. Jenelle is a bully — and she got what she deserved, going to jail twice in one week on the harassment charges.”
Other lovely allegations include a story of Jenelle throwing a baby crib out of a window and “destroying a family heirloom” of Amber’s. Amber thinks the only thing that will teach Jenelle to be nice is to get locked up, saying “[Jail] is the only way she’ll ever learn. Her bullying techniques are so harsh it could eventually push someone over the edge to hurt themselves or commit suicide.”
A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US: DO YOU THINK MACI, CHELSEA, AND LEAH SHOULD GET PREGNANT AGAIN? DO YOU THINK THIS IS A PLOY TO GET HIGHER SALARIES OR THEIR OWN SHOWS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LATEST ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JENELLE?
When the geniuses behind Twitter started working on their product way back in 2006, did they ever dream it would become a broadcasting board and cyberwar territory for reality stars? Because that is exactly what it has turned into. The latest Z-lister to drop a bombshell on the social networking site wasTeen Mom 2‘s Leah Messer, who finally decided to come clean about her rumored cheating on ex-husband Corey Simmsvia a post.
“Okay, I cheated a week before my wedding people. I’m tired of hearing about it. At least I’m not a coward, and can admit my faults!” tweeted Leah.
That is to say, she can admit her faults now, since previously she denied that she had cheated on Corey at all. She continued to tweet about it, saying: “It was one of my regrets in my life, stop accusing and pointing fingers. Things happen to different people different ways. #GodsMyJUDGE”
Yes, Leah, God is your judge, and so are the tabloids, bloggers, and fans following your every move! Earlier this year, Leah was judged by the peanut gallery for smoking while pregnant, a pregnancy she tragically later went on to miscarry. The wise Leah admits to a pretty zen attitude towards her tumultuous life and decisions, ending her posts with this confusing message, “I can not not change whats happened. I can only be proud of where I stand now, and learn from it. I’m in no way proud of my mistakes, but last I checked we aren’t proud of our mistakes.”
Leah is now engaged to the man she met after her divorce from Corey was finalized, Jeremy Calvert.
In more news, Amber Portwood, who remains in jail for violating her probation after she was found with over 40 non-prescribed pills, went before a judge today. The good news for the troubled star is that the judge approved her plea deal, which will have her doing a stint in rehab instead of the alternative of doing 5 years in prison.
According to TMZ, Amber will remain in custody pending a full evaluation by the Drug Court team. The evaluation will reportedly take up to two weeks, but once accepted into the program, Amber will be released immediately.
A source close to Amber tells RadarOnline that she’ll live with her grandmother once she’s out: “The family’s first priority is getting Amber out of jail. After that, she will be living with her grandmother until she gets her life back together.”
As for her ex and father to her daughter Leah, Gary Shirley, he appears to be treating the situation in a two-faced manner, the source alleges: “Gary tells the family he is being supportive, but who knows what is said behind closed doors; he tends to try to put Amber down when she needs support the most.”
Hopefully, Amber will be able to see her daughter Leah once she is released. The source goes on to say, “She should be able to see Leah. No one has said otherwise … she wants to be a better mother and role model to Leah.”

Our second favorite littleTeen Mom tabloid star Jenelle Evans isn’t so popular with her friends back home. In a print-only report for OK magazine, sources say Jenelle has alienated everyone around her with her antics, including fellow Teen Mom stars Leah, Kailyn, and Chelsea. The source says, “She’s just losing friends… she’s just burning bridges with the people who helped her.”
The report goes on to say that Jenelle has allegedly stolen other’s boyfriends, threatened to “disclose her friend’s past indiscretions” and even borrowed money from a fellow cast mate in order to make bail, but has yet to pay the cast mate back.
Indeed, the latest issue of Reality Weekly magazine reports Kailyn Lowry grew close to Jenelle last summer and lent her $150 to get out of jail. “Kailyn felt like it was her responsibility to help Jenelle and to fix her issues,” explains the insider. “But Jenelle never paid her back.”
While Jenelle failed to pay Kailyn back in cash, she did return the favor by stealing her boyfriend! Kailyn reportedly stayed friends with Jenelle until, Mike, a guy Kailyn dated for a few months came between them. “Mike contacted Jenelle on Facebook and they made plans to go to New York together,” says an insider. And after an upset Kailyn confronted Jenelle about it, “Jenelle told her it was none of her business.”
This led to Kailyn cutting all ties with Jenelle. “Kailyn thought she’d change, but now she believes Jenelle’s not a good person and doesn’t even have good intentions.” The insider adds that Kailyn now “wants nothing to do with Jenelle.”
It appears the other Teen Mom stars feel the same way as following Leah Messer’s reported miscarriage, Kailyn and Chelsea Houska made plans to go see Leah together. Jenelle was, however, excluded.
As we reported previously, Jenelle currently faces 75 days of active jail time for violating a restraining order against Hannah Inman, and was even arrested twice in one week. One of the things she got in trouble for was posting naked photos of Hannah to her Facebook fan page, like any true friend.
Jenelle denies doing so, blaming it on any of the four (yes, four) page administrators she has managing her page. Currently out on bail, she is scheduled to return to court on February 6. In the meantime, Jenelle’s days have consisted of “community service, workout, and school” according to her frequently updated Twitter account.
None of this matters since Jenelle is in l-o-v-e with new boyfriend Gary Head (despite rumors she is still writing to jailed ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp) and they even got matching tattoos, which means they will be together FOREVER. That is the law of couple tattoos. The matching tattoos say YOLO, which stands for “You Only Live Once.”
