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.
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.
On this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we have gorgeous vacations, contentious custody arguments, adorable sibling moments and a whole lot of plastic surgery and fractured relationships. Let’s dive in.
Briana DeJesus: We start off in Miami with Briana and the Dr. Miami surgery storyline. Shirley is done with her surgery. Now that Javi has shown up it is awkward according to Briana. I’m a little confused because as of a couple weeks ago he was going to be the caretaker of both of them. Personally, I would think the awkwardness would come from being intimately dependent post-surgery on someone you’ve been with for five minutes (or not at all, as in the case of Shirley) and having cameras and crew documenting it to the world. But that’s just me. Despite complaining about him being there, Javi ends up in the car as they go to the Miami rental.
On last night’s Teen Mom 2, we had a daddy-daughter dance, mother-son therapy and plenty of hook-up confessions!
Briana DeJesus: Briana kicked off TM2 this week so if it’s good enough for the show, then its good enough for us. Briana is not getting a full tummy tuck. She tells her mom ‘she did her research’. I SHOULD HOPE SO. If you are going to have body altering plastic surgery (before all the eyes of Snapchat no less), I should hope you do your research. Briana also says she has cut Javi out and since he went on Kail’s podcast it was easy.
