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?
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.
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.
