So reunions are now the highlight of this series? Apparently, because they have amped up the drama and perhaps production is meddling behind the scenes to encourage and set up fights? I’m just not sure how I feel about this, but we all watched Teen Mom 2 last night, so let’s talk about it.
In true MTV fashion, they tease us with clips we saw last week. While last week’s episode was all a teaser for this week. Remember when this show used to be about young people navigating the trials and tribulations of parenting?
After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimesall united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.
It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.
Drama’s for Nerds part 31 (because that’s what it feels like). This episode of Teen Mom 2 we get all the behind the scenes reunion footage of our Ladies of Class (aka Briana and Kail) screaming at each other. We are teased with numerous fights, lose Chelsea DeBoer midway through, and watch Briana’s unmentionables get blurred, which seems unnecessary since she’s showed it all to the world on Snapchat.
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.
From the surgery table to court-ordered child support, and lost aides to road rage, Teen Mom 2 had a lot going on this week.
Chelsea DeBoer: Chelsea takes Watson to a dinosaur museum. Then she and her mom go out to lunch. Mary says she is close to having the baby? I thought Chelsea was still pregnant in real time. Apparently, it’s been a year since Adam has seen Paislee and months since he’s seen Aubree.
