Last week I was off having fun (the kind that doesn’t include TV). I did watch last episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and we got our fifth and final baby: Izaiah (these girls really like to use a lot of vowels when naming their kids). Brianna and Danae had (another) fight and Danae is no longer welcome at her mom’s house. We got to talk about two engagements and one actually happened. And Kyler got a job. This week we are back to having the kind of fun that does include watching TV (and plenty of head shaking and eye rolling) so let’s dive back in!
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
This episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is titled the Co-Parent Trap. I find this title clever. Or I did, until I wondered if these kids were old enough to even get the movie reference and looked up the dates. The Lindsay Lohan remake of The Parent Trap was made in 1998! It’s 20 years old, the same age as the oldest two girls and OLDER than the other three. So now I feel ancient. That said, the 1998 remake was a decent movie. And the 1961 original is worth the watch as well. I also didn’t know that the original movie was based off of a book, but that makes sense for Disney. Anyway, I guess we should jump in and see what’s going on with our young moms and dads.
With Watch What Happens Live taping in Los Angeles all week, it was a guarantee that Real Housewives cast members from the past and present would show up and take a lot of photos together. The Los Angeles taping meant that Housewives and alums from Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed up in droves.
Original Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (obviously), Jeana Keough, and Lauri Peterson showed up for a taping along with Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, Jill Zarin, Dina Manzo (who lives in California now), Eileen Davidson, and NeNe Leakes among others.
It’s a new week on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. Can we offer these kids lessons in Parenting 101? Let’s do it anyway.
- Help your baby momma come up with a name for your child. And smile while you do it!
- Put up some kind of bed for your child because it’s a terrible idea to have them sleep between you with pillows!
- Maternity photos don’t need to be taken on national television in a bra and underwear.
- Discuss marriage and life goals so you are on the same page, communication is key for a positive relationship.
- Don’t quit your job! You need money to provide for a baby.
- Now let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and come up with 20 more!
With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.
We get our first baby of the season and here’s hoping that all the daddies can be as attentive and nurturing as Sean’s first night home with Jade Cline and baby Kloie! If not, we have to hope that hard hitting relative like Aunt Vania will come in and set them straight! Let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
Please say ‘no’. It was a bit of a struggle to come up with a quote of the week on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. So I am going to reluctantly award it to Kyler again (he and Ashley are really stepping it up) with his “Please say no” comment when discussing homecoming. I feel this is generally appropriate since they all should have said ‘no’ without proper birth control.
