We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out this links from some of our favorite sites in the October 14, 2019 edition of Monday Morning Tea.
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we saw the true definition of passive aggressive with several of the cast. I think Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer are the only people who don’t hate anyone on set. I guess MTV said if we can’t get the group on stage together, we will outsource others for them to fight. The second installment of the reunion is all over the place. There may not be much meat and potatoes to it, but there is definitely BEEF.
We ended Part 1 of the reunion with Jenelle Evans running off the stage playing victim. Chile, please… Jenelleand her problematic husband, David Eason have made numerous comments on social media that have been a part of her storyline on the show. Therefore, I see nothing wrong with Nessa Diab. confronting her on the show. I can see straight through the tears. It’s funny how someone who has attacked several people is now crying when asked about her comments. If you can’t take the heat, keep your mouth shut!
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we finally get to know why Leah Messer and her boyfriend Jason Jordan broke up. Let’s just say, he wasn’t who he appeared to be during many of their scenes together. But I had a sneaking suspicion of that when he said on the last episode that he was the alpha of the house. Very interesting choice of words from a man dating a woman with three kids and a house of her own.
Kailyn Lowry is in LA to record her podcast while the kids are with their dad. Her special guest for the day is Amber Portwood from Teen Mom OG. She has some interesting things to discuss given her recent feud with Jenelle Evans. Amber admits she wasn’t proud of her reaction to drama. But, she warns to never come after her kids or her MAN. If you remember Jenelle posted a video basically throwing every negative thing she has ever heard about Amber in her face. She must have taken her meds that day because she was surprisingly calm and lucid during the interview.
On this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, in part two of the reunion, hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa Diab, sit down with the OG’s as well as their significant others and families. This episode we get a little more in depth as we finally get to hear the families perspective on this season. We even get more insight on Cory Wharton’s thoughts on Cheyenne Floyd and a possible relationship. She admitted in part one, she would be ready to have a relationship with Cory, but she knows he is not interested ready (for anything other than sex).
Andrew Glennon looks awkward and nervous when he asked about his thoughts on Amber Portwood’s thoughts of suicide. He shares that it is scary, but he needs to do more research and talk and listen to Amber to help her through her depression. When talking about being a new father, he begins to cry thinking about how his son makes him happy. Gary Shirley and Kristina Shirley join the stage to discuss co-parenting.
They claim co-parenting is going well and Leah is doing fine, but it seemed during the season (and every season) that they wish Amber would do a little more. Kristina goes into detail on her miscarriage and gets emotional while speaking about it. Amber also tears up (in an attempt to steal the attention back) when she sees how upset Kristina is and her own miscarriage. Dr. Drew commends them both for sharing their stories about losing children for others that may need to hear it.
On this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, we look back at the journey the five moms went through this season. The cast sat down with hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa Diab, to chat. They discussed everything from mental health, children and divorces. This season, Amber Portwood even threatened to leave the show. As much as Amber may need a break, selfishly I don’t want to deal with getting to know a new mom. Let’s face it, new moms, Cheyenne Floyd and Bristol Palin, were train wrecks, each in their very own annoying way.
Maci Bookout got emotional when asked about memorable parts from the season. She can’t look at anyone without seeing hurt, especially with all of the mom shaming online. She wishes the other moms could see themselves the way she sees them. This is clearly a reference to Amber, who has been plagued with depression and recently struggled with comments on social media about her parenting skills. The other moms come to the defense of Amber and try to uplift her spirits as she breaks down. I do feel for Amber, it is obvious she has many issues. But at the same time, you either have to make the choice to get off social media or leave the show. As much as I hate to see her go (she is good TV), it’s clear to me she isn’t emotionally strong enough to handle it.
