During last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Briana DeJesus invited her next baby daddy boy toy, John to go camping. Briana’s mom hears about the trip and she hopes she is going to pace herself. I think we all hope that! She falls in love just as quickly as the relationships fall apart. SMH. If she put as much effort into her kids as she did with these men, then she would be super mom.
It is very odd to me that there are only three people going on this trip. Briana only invites her best friend and her new boo. Seems like this was supposed to be a girls trip and the plans changed at the last minute. Who would want to be the third wheel on a trip???? What is sad is that I am not surprised. She just seems like the type of friend who would ditch you at the club the moment a guy smiled at her.
During last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we got to see the fallout from Jenelle Evans 911 call getting released online. Following its release, she refused to film. The producers talk with Barbara Evans. She is afraid to confront her about the incident. Barbara feels like if she pushes Jenelle, she may not confide in her when something really bad happens. She also reveals that she was a victim of domestic violence and how she had feelings of shame and embarrassment.
In Barbara’s mind, it may be even worse for Jenelle because she is a public figure. In the end, she makes the decision just to accept whatever she tells her as an excuse and not intervene in her marriage. This made me feel sad and angry. Jenelle has flipped out on her mother so much that Barbara is scared to show concern for her own daughter.
During last nights episode of Teen Mom 2, worlds collided when Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Baltierra from Teen Mom OG come to visit Kailyn Lowry for her podcast. They discuss everything from family to addiction and give some much needed advice. There is also a 911 call that is revealed, that one of the mom’s made in fear for her safety! Who is in danger?
Kailyn talks with a friend about her ex, Chris Lopez and where they are in their relationship. I suspect it’s nowhere, but I guess I can entertain her delusion for a moment. She says she has never gotten over him, but she is open to getting back together. Kailyn admits that she is addicted to the chaos he brings, but wants to be a family with him. I honestly believe if not Chris, it would be someone else. I just think Kailyn doesn’t want to be alone and when she is, she clings to whoever was her last love interest. She did the exact same thing with Javi Marroquin after they broke up.
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle Evans’ baby daddies are coming out of the woodwork. Nathan Griffith took her to court after child abuse allegations. Jace’s dad Andrew Lewis, showed up out of the blue. Is Andrew’s new interest genuine? Or does he just want attention? Jenelle definitely has 99 problems, and ALL of her baby daddies are one!
Leah Messer’s daughter, Addie is going to kindergarten. Her twins are starting third grade. Ali is going to get a new aide at school to help her. Ali had not been eating at times in school because she was worried she would drop her tray. Hearing this, broke my heart, I am glad the school decided to give her assistance again. I think it is sad that this school isn’t prepared to help students with disabilities.
Last night was part two of the dramatic Teen Mom 2 reunion. And we have to call it out: really MTV with the dramatic editing? Really? Flashing the fight into black and white (blurry) stills? It was not an iconic fight. And you can just stop trying to make it into something that should be celebrated.
Especially since you built up a bit of dramatic energy just to cut right to Leah Messer’s segment when she had nothing to do with the fight at all. Honestly, the true reality of Ali’s situation and Leah and Corey dealing with a sick child as parents should put the pettiness of everything else into perspective. But it’s MTV so don’t worry, it doesn’t. That is really the only meat of her segment. Corey Simms Skypes in for a couple minutes and shares that he and Miranda are celebrating five years of marriage. His segment was short and a little awkward.
Kailyn Lowry had her friend and Teen Mom 2 co-star Leah Messer as a guest on her Coffee Convos podcast where they talked all things failed marriages, co-parenting and Leah’s future as a motivational speaker.. Kail and her co-host Lindsie Chrisley also grilled Leah on her relationship with Jeremy Calvert!
Kail is literally obsessed with Jeremy and Leah getting back together. She loves them as a couple, and thinks there’s a real possibility of them giving their relationship another go. She also wants them to have another baby together! Leah however, insists it’s “never” happening. “I think he knows that,” she teases, although at Kail’s prompting Leah finally admits Jeremy recently asked her out on a date, but she suggested they take Addie out instead. Ouch! Leah and Jeremy did go to some a pottery place together (which was filmed!) and Leah made a dog bowl for her dog.
Tonight is part two of the Teen Mom 2 finale special and since we didn’t get to see Briana DeJesus at all in the first one, the producers make up for it this time around. As Dr. Drew points out, in the last four years since MTV viewers saw Briana, a lot has changed and a lot is still the same. As in, Briana dealt with another pregnancy and another baby daddy to battle with. Briana starts with a heavy sigh and says she needs a vacation. Dr. Drew is quick to remind her that you don’t get one with kids and then moves on to asking how her castmates are treating her. Briana purses her lips, clearly acknowledging an issue exists but hesitant to call someone out. Finally, she tells us how her and her family’s close relationship with Javi Marroquin has made Kailyn Lowry feel some kind of way. Because of this, the rest of the moms have followed suit and haven’t exactly been welcoming.
Briana updates us on baby Stella, who is doing better health wise but has only seen her dad, Luis, two more times and she’s four months now. To his credit, Briana says that he’s out of trucking school, working and paying for Stella’s daycare so while he isn’t exactly involved on an emotional level, he’s at least doing something.
On Teen Mom 2, it’s more of the same and it seems like some issues will never get resolved in the long term. Jenelle Evans is still at war with mom Barb, despite the custody agreement that was supposed to make everything easier. Kailyn Lowry and ex-husband Javi Marroquin are in the same boat but instead of custody, it’s child support that is dragging out. Briana DeJesus doesn’t have a custody or child support issue yet but likely will in the near future since baby daddy Luis is starting to disappear. Chelsea DeBoer has plenty on her plate between wedding planning, possibly modifying custody and changing Aubree’s last name at Aubree’s request. Leah Messer has her hands full as twins Ali and Aleeah’s fighting escalates. That seems like a good place to start so let’s get going.
Leah is driving the twins to see their dad and they are in the backseat, slapping and hitting each other while they argue over sharing beef jerky. Once they are with dad Corey Simms, the fighting doesn’t stop as Aleeah catches a fish and Ali complains that she’s bored and wants to leave since she can’t really partake in catching fish at the lake. Aleeah reels one in and wants to stay, but they opt to leave and Corey has to break up another fight that starts the second they are in the car with one another. Aleeah is in tears and Corey knows she is acting out because she is getting less attention.
