This season of Teen Mom 2 is really ramping up for what we assume is the finale. It looks from the previews that next week is the infamous reunion taping…
Chelsea DeBoer: Aubree is going to Adam’s parents’ house for their visitation weekend. The next day, Chelsea sees a picture of Adam with Aubree. Chelsea and Cole are pretty upset by this because he is only supposed to see her at the visitation center. Honestly, though, it seems like there should have been clear legal direction about the grandparent visitation and whether that included Adam. If it didn’t, they are in violation and the picture gives her solid proof.
Later, Aubree is back from the weekend and she was confused about seeing Adam. Chelsea goes to visit Mary and they talk about it. Aubree is just too old and too smart for these things. Chelsea probably told her she wasn’t going to see Adam at grandma and grandpa’s house anymore, so of course, she was confused that he suddenly showed up. Chelsea’s lawyer sent his parents a letter referencing the visitation order from the court and that seems like a decent way to handle the situation. Chelsea isn’t taking it silently but she’s also not running back to court.
As it turns out that was a really good way to handle the situation because Adam’s mom apologized. But we learn about this in a pretty epic way and a TM first, I do believe. Chelsea goes to her producer’s hotel room to share a crazy story. This is the first time we’ve ever seen a girl go to the producer’s hotel room, right? Apparently, Adam’s mom showed up while Chelsea was pants-less and Cole was pooping? Chelsea wouldn’t go to the door alone so she had to wait for Cole to get done (nothing like some added pressure I guess). But in the end, his mom wanted to apologize for not realizing the visitation said not to include Adam and she won’t do that again. I’m not sure if I believe that she didn’t know, and I’m rather appalled and embarrassed for Cole to have his bathroom habits aired this way, but hey – it seems like they worked this out without going back to court and in Aubree’s best interest so this is a TM win! We have to take our wins where we can get them!
Leah Messer: Leah’s story this week is rough. We have had a lot of rough stories on this franchise but this one is really brutal. Leah is in Columbus for Ali’s doctor appointments. In a moment of levity though we learn she still does her makeup on the bathroom floor. She checks in with Corey from the hospital and he says that Ali will have an aid through the end of the school year. She won’t lose her until next year which gives them some time to try to fight the decision. They meet with Dr. Tsao. He is going to help with the case that the aid is necessary as well. Eventually, Leah and Ali leave the hospital and Leah breaks down with a producer. She doesn’t want to cry in front of Ali, so after a couple minutes she gets herself together and gets in the car. Ali is excited about her new machine that will help to exercise her lungs. Honestly, Leah just did a great job with this and it’s one of the toughest situations.
Kailyn Lowry: For having three kids with three different dads, Kailyn’s story is surprisingly light. She also doesn’t get much camera time this week. Jo takes Isaac to Jiu-Jitsu, likely as part of their recent agreements and her request that he do more with the activities. The next day, Kail suddenly has purple in her hair. She discusses custody with Bone. Jo now has 50/50 custody of Isaac.
Later, Javi comes over to her house to ‘fill her in’ on the Miami drama with Briana. He certainly cracked the code for how to get more camera time. I like to imagine Matt and Simon smacking their foreheads when they see these scenes thinking this is how I could have gotten way more screen time, mess around with two of them! Anyway, Kail gives Javi some tough love and he tells her she’s right, then they bang (maybe?). OK so we don’t see the last part but if you’ve followed the timeline in the tabloids he was ‘seeing’ Briana, Kail, and Lauren all at the same time so it would make sense.
Briana DeJesus: Briana is sitting in a room with her family but this time its in Miami. She is upset with her mom for confronting Javi and for her mom bringing Devoin. Bri snaps at Roxanne who snaps back. I think Roxanne has a point that Devoin is helping, after all, they are taking care of Briana’s kids while she recovers from elective surgery. But when recovering from a medical procedure you don’t just want anyone around so I also see Briana’s point for why she wouldn’t want him in Miami. Frankly, I’d be upset they all came when you can’t even lift your arms up. Roxanne may have ‘called Javi out’ but it certainly seems that they came down to stir up some drama and get a little more camera time themselves and that’s about it. Later they leave. Javi never shows back up.
So as originally planned Dre comes to take over once the nurse leaves. He confirms that he is on board to wipe butts. Bri classily says she hasn’t pooped yet so its coming! Eventually, they go out to eat to get out of the rental for a bit. They talk about how over Javi Briana is and she rants about Devoin as well.
After some recovery time, Dre is taking Briana and Shirley home. Back home Brittany employs Devoin to get Nova to do her homework. Britt tells Bri she is tapping out upon her walking in the apartment. She also says her butt doesn’t look different. Briana talks to Devoin and it’s actually a decent conversation and while they get to a new understanding she cries and wipes her nose with a pair of Nova’s underwear.
Jenelle Eason: We start where we left off with Jace talking to Barb on the phone (unsupervised with the gun) while Jenelle is out of the car talking to the cop. They meet up with Barb. Poor Janelle is really shaken up. Let me wipe my tears and put away my tiny violin for the plight she’s had to deal with. Afterall, its not like most of this was her fault or like she had a small child who should maybe get some comfort or attention? Barb deems the damage on Jenelle’s vehicle not that bad (you can tell by Jenelle’s face this was not the correct response). Barb asks Jenelle if she pulled a gun on the guy and Jenelle denies it! She flat out denies it. Then she scolds Jace for ‘lying’ to Barbara. Obviously, we know this is a lie since we’ve seen the footage and heard the reports. The ease with which she tells it is the disgusting part, especially knowing cameras follow her around!
Barb talks to Nathan on the phone. She tells him that Jenelle pulled a gun on the guy. It’s quite telling that she believes Jace without question over Jenelle. I’m so glad that Barb and Nathan are taking this so seriously and that they see the need to get Kaiser out of the house. Unfortunately, we know Kaiser is still there so hopefully, this footage can be used against her to get all the kids out.
Barb does let Jace go back to Jenelle’s because she doesn’t want to violate the court order. David was around though so they couldn’t film. Barb talks to a producer until Jenelle comes and they shut down filming because David is with her.
Later Jenelle shoots a special. Clearly, this was the reunion. She tells Kristen that she will film next season with Sasquatch David or she won’t film at all. And she’s got deals just waiting from Netflix and Amazon and other networks y’all. Well, I’ll tell you something Jenelle, I’m over your entitled attitude and I’m not watching another season with you on. Come on MTV, you created these monsters, step up and stop enabling them.
