On last night’s episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, After two months, Brianna Jaramillo landed a job so she doesn’t have to get benefits or deal with Braeson’s biological father (although she should still go after him for child support!). She is heading to the doctor for birth control when Robert asks silly questions about whether or not guys get birth control shots and they start to bicker in the car. Brianna says that she’s starting to regret asking Robert to move in with her.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Ashley Jones found a full-time job as an administrative assistant so she and Bar can save money to move to Atlanta. Ashley talks about how she likes working because she’s not a teen mom there, she’s just Ashley. She talks about how everything is going well for them, except for her relationship with Bar’s mom. She’s thinking about how to make things right between them. She thinks it’s important for them to be on the same page since she’s Holly’s grandma.
Jade Cline talks about how she and Sean have been co-parenting the baby without drama for a few weeks now. She tells him that she’s happy they can try to be friends again. She says how being friends will help co-parenting. Jade tells him that what they were doing wasn’t working so they need a pact to put the past in the past and be friends. He says he just wants them all to be happy.
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Lexi Tatman struggles with the decision to attend a graduation party, Kayla Sessler heads to court for Izaiah’s child support from Stephan, and Jade Cline visits the doctor for help with her chronic crying and anxiety. Ashley Jones and Bar deal with his brother’s murder case and family drama, and Brianna Jaramillo finally arrives in Oregon with her mom and Robert.
After successfully completing an accelerated high school diploma program, Lexi is focusing on taking care of Tobias, but one senior graduation party invitation makes her feel like she’s missing something. Committed to want to do what’s right for Tobias and not falling prey to friends who are pressuring her to go because she’ll never see that group of people again, Lexi decides not to ask her mom to watch the baby — after all, it’s not her mom’s responsibility — and she skips the party. However, Kyler decides to attend.
Well, it is here, the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant reunion. Our girls are all grown up and watching the clips of them pregnant and having their babies in full makeup and fancy clothes. It is the typical reunion set up for the franchise, but no Dr. Drew. In fact, Nessa didn’t even host. I never thought I would miss either of them but I did. I forgot how the pacing of these reunion shows used to go when you scrunched everyone into the same hour and didn’t drag it out for three episodes and include a couple hallway fights and backstage temper tantrums.
How many episodes is Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant going to be? I’m not complaining, I’m just wondering because I’m surprised they started this off with more than 8, to be honest. Now we are past 12. This new group of moms must be resonating with viewers.
Jade Cline: Therapy went well. Jade and her mom go out to eat and discuss the baby’s ‘little cute fat butt’. Her mom isn’t buying therapy or Jade working with Sean. Jade’s eyeliner pretty much distracted me through the scene.
Lexi Tatman: Lexi feels great now that she and Kyler have been spending time together (and that he finally agreed to a label). Kyler doesn’t want to go to any sort of school in their town post high school. But he does want to go into something mechanics related. Baby Tobias seems really big, how long did they film? He’s cute with those cheeks.
The long holiday weekend is over. Shall we celebrate by dissecting some entitled young people screaming at each other? I say yes! Let’s dig into this week’s Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant recap, followed by Teen Mom 2 highlights from last night’s episode.
Kayla Sessler: Kayla is excited to start college. She has a new love interest ‘she be textin’. Why do I think perhaps she’ll be taking remedial English as one of her first classes?
Brianna Jaramillo: Brianna has all kinds of time to hang out with friends now that Danae is out of the picture. Who has the baby? All kinds of time with a little baby at home, don’t you have to take care of him? Also, does Victoria Secret have a sponsorship with these girls? And did she cut the shoulder out of that sweatshirt or do you now pay $60 for one that is cut up? Sorry about that, my grandmother’s voice somehow traveled 400 miles to take over my mind for a second there.
For all the drama and interesting characters we have with Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, it feels like this show is surprisingly stuck on the same issues and in the same place for the last few episodes. I’m here to see it through, but it seems like we are rehashing a lot of the same things over and over again.
Kayla: Kayla only has help when her mom is home from work. This is because Stephan lost his ever-loving mind with her mom and doesn’t come around anymore. Kayla goes out to eat giant cookies with a friend and discusses custody issues and Stephan’s lack of stability. This is a classic TM segment.
Lexi: Lexi is lonely. She mentions her dad who lives 4 hours away. Her parents divorced when she was 5, and split when she was about 1.
Before we get to the Teen Mom Young and Pregnant recap…I just can’t resist. Can we talk about Teen Mom 2 for just a minute (it’s basically the big sister to this motley crew anyway)? The whole episode is the girls prepping to leave for the reunion show, or there for filming. As they are getting ready, Jenelle is wearing a ‘Bearded Men Only’ tank top. There are also words coming out of her mouth but they really don’t compare to that tank. Its reminiscent of her Pink days and former workout gear she used to sport with Nathan, but now we are into the David Era. Honestly, that tank overshadowed the whole first half of the episode. Also Jenelle, no one else wants David, you’re totally fine.
They all somehow get themselves to California and mill around studios and hotels. At some point, Javi comes to visit Briana who is feeding the baby on the bed. He sits down and they flirt on the hotel bed, which honestly just seems efficient. If they just had all their dates in hotels on beds they could save a lot of time…
