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.
Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards brought out a slew of reality stars. Teen Mom stars Kailyn Lowry and Catelynn Lowell were on the pink carpet, as well as former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham. It was apparently bring your kid to the VMAs night because Farrah, Spencer Pratt and others were spotted with their young kids in tow. Also seen at the awards show: Kylie Jenner, Blac Chyna, Snooki and Jwoww and more!
I bet this was awkward! Former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parksattended the same event this weekend. The former friends were photographed at “The Bonfyre” listening party in Atlanta. Also spotted: former RHOA star Lisa Wu and also Rasheeda and Kirk Frost.

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?
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.
