Oh, it seems like at least one couple from Teen Mom is really trying to make it work! I'll admit, most of the girls from both Teen Mom franchises make really stupid decisions and do totally dumb things–even when they have an amazing support system. None of them seem to be in healthy relationships except for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. Surprisingly, this pair had the most stacked against them…her mom was an addict, his dad was in and and out of jail, and they ended up becoming step-siblings when her mom and his dad entered into a tumultuous marriage. It's enough to mess up any teen couple. Or anyone, for that matter!
However, Catelynn and Tyler are different. They've been together since the seventh grade, and, realizing that their daughter could be raised in a much more stable environment, they decided to choose adoption. They are the only couple in the history of 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom to do so. While they've definitely struggled in their relationship (Catelynn needs a lot of reassurance), they seem to be committed to one another and are now engaged. Even if Catelynn and Tyler don't make it (I really hope they do), they are more mature than all of the other Teen Moms (1 and 2!) put together. That may not be saying much, but I still think they still think they are head and shoulders above their counterparts.
I'll admit, I laughed a bit when Tylerdecided to move to New Orleans to focus on his acting career–mainly because he went to New Orleans and not New York or Los Angeles…or even Wilmington, North Carolina! When Tyler decided to fulfill his dreams, he and Catelynn vowed to make their relationship work long distance. Now, the couple is reunited for the holidays.
On Monday Teen Mom 2star Jenelle Evans got a text message from her wise mother, Barbara, asking her to just stop putting everything out on the internet and take a break for a while. Jenelle defended her Twitter addiction, saying that she loves to connect with her fans. Jenelle should've taken her mom's advice!
Today Jenelle, her new husbandCourtland Rogers and his ex Taylor Lewis, the mother of his daughter Jordan, have been engaged in a war of words and photos and it hasn't been pretty. Some of it has been straight up incoherent, but here's the gist. They say there are three sides to every story, so we present to you the raging Tweets from Jenelle, Courtland and Taylor.
Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowryrecently tweeted pictures of her latest tattoo, the beginning of a half-sleeve tattoo, on the inside of her bicep. Ouch!
The tattoo includes a pocket watch, roses, thorns, skulls, and an anchor. When asked about the meaning of the objects, Kailsaid, “It’s an anchor (for all those who have kept me grounded through my journey with MTV). And the pocket watch reads 10:05, the day I met Javi. The skull is for my past (skeletons in my closet).”
The tattoo reveal didn't come without criticism. Naturally. After a slew of hateful tweets, Kail responded with “I love when people think I want/need their approval to do something" and "Please, tell me more about how trashy my tattoos are & how ugly they will be when I'm 60. You don't HAVE to look at me. #movealongnow."
I couldn't bring myself to poke fun at Jenelle's one-stop courthouse shopping. Or care about the most recent developments in her life, such as her failure to get a prenup before her quickie wedding. I just did. not. care. and I hated her for having a child she (seemingly) does not appreciate. I chose to watch the news coverage on CNN instead.
That said, I'm not ashamed to admit that I've always had a soft spot for Jenelle. Her story is truly the ONLY reason I watch Teen Mom 2. I get Jenelle's never-ending desire to feel loved, I think Barbara is (unintentionally) hilarious, and Jace is super cute.
Yes, Jenelle is currently a complete mess, but I feel as if she's the only star of Teen Mom 2 who has it in her (albeit way deep down) to change for the better. Before you call me nuts, let me explain.
“Courtland is accused of taking a gift card back to a store and attempting cash it in, but according to the store the gift card was never purchased so that raised a red flag,” a source tells RadarOnline.
Obviously, Teen Mom 2 is slightly behind real time, as Leah has remarried, suffered a miscarriage, and announced a third pregnancy (whew!) since that episode had been taped. In all fairness to MTV, they aren't that behind, Leah just moves really, really fast.
While Leah has moved on from her marriage to Corey, some Teen Mom 2 fans (and haters) have not. During Monday night's episode, Leah tweeted about her frustrations about… Twitter.
