Dr. Drew sits down with Kailyn and Jenelle tonight. I’ll recap their segments here.
Dr. Drew sits down with Kailyn first and talks about how she felt while watching her brief recap of the season. Kailyn comments that the hardest part of her season was leaving Isaac for 6 weeks, and admits that he’s pretty sensitive on things. Kailyn is juggling lots of things, like breastfeeding, raising two children, and going back to school. Kailyn talks briefly about breastfeeding and Lincoln’s inability to latch on for a while, but says that he’s now breastfeeding again. Kailyn discusses leaving Lincoln with her mother and claims that when she dropped Lincoln off she was sober, but two hours later when Kailyn picked up Lincoln, Suzi was drunk and had given Lincoln formula, whole milk, yogurt, and a banana. Kailyn hadn’t told Javi about the incident at all, and apparently he would be pretty mad.
Javi comes out on stage and talks about the whole situation that he just found about. Javi is rightfully pissed that Suzi had taken care of Lincoln while she was drunk. Kailyn went into the situation thinking that Suzi would be sober, but when she got drunk Kailyn didn’t know how to handle it. Javi wonders if he would have ever found out about this if Dr. Drew hadn’t asked about it in the first place. Kailyn comments that it’s difficult for her to handle things because it’s her mom and because no matter how many times Suzi does things to ruin her, she’ll always go back because that’s her mom. Dr. Drew says that the important thing is to figure things out for the kids because it’s not good to argue about it in front of them. Javi talks about how two weeks ago he was crying and struggling with the relationship and Kailyn basically told him to deal with it. Javi feels like he doesn’t have love reciprocated back to him. They don’t go out together, but spend time apart from each other. They still feel like they love each other, but Javi now refuses to leave Lincoln with anyone so I’m pretty sure they’re not going to go out together any time soon.
Jo and Vee come on stage and talk about things. Dr. Drew asks for help from the other side, and Jo agrees that the kids shouldn’t be unsupervised with Suzi at any time. He does, however, think that the kids should be able to get to know Suzi over time, even if it’s at a distance. Jo talks about the haircut episode and thinks that his biggest issue was that he knows Kailyn isn’t a racist and wanted to clarify that she isn’t a racist when he tried to communicate about the issue. Vee says that things are better between her and Kailyn and that it was a big step for all of them when they decided to put things aside. Jo and Vee admit that they were broken up for about a month, and that they haven’t been living together. Vee was upset that Jo wanted space so she moved out. Vee is obviously upset, but admits that even though things are ok now, she’s still upset. Basically Drew ends things by saying that Kailyn has a complicated life.
Dr. Drew reviews Jenelle’s season of Teen Mom 2. Dr. Drew talks about the fact that Barbara wants to do what’s best for Jace and Jenelle admits that it’s probably best. Jenelle says that she’s sober, happy, healthy, and going to school. She is going to school to get a career so that she can be stable for her children. At this time, Kaiser is almost 2 months old, and Jenelle admits that it’s easier to handle things as a mom at 22 than it was to handle it at 16. Jenelle is planning on getting the Implanon in order to be sure she doesn’t have any more children any time soon.
Jenelle admits that she talked to Kieffer when Nathan was in jail, and claims that she was simply looking for a friend to talk to at the time. Jenelle said she was open about everything and that Nathan has even seen the messages since it wasn’t anything that he should have been concerned about.
Nathan comes out on stage and Dr. Drew mentions that he has been a huge support system for Jenelle and that it appears he has helped Jenelle out of whatever situation she was in. Dr. Drew talks about Nathan’s alcohol consumption and Nathan thinks that it is a misunderstanding. Nathan says that his 3rd DUI was a huge mistake and that he had only had 2 drinks that whole night. Nathan did finally admit that he was an asshole to the cops on the night of his arrest, but says that he still thinks he wasn’t guilty. Nathan also talks about his push for regaining custody of Jace. Nathan thinks Jace needs a strong fatherly figure and that when Jace is with them, he’s got some great behavior. Nathan says that his relationship with Barbara is still rocky, but that he often times lets things get to him and then he becomes aggressive. Jenelle says she’s talked to Jace about moving in with them and thinks that Jace simply doesn’t want to hurt other people’s feelings so he agrees with what anyone says. Jenelle admits that Jace loves his school that he’s in now, and that she wouldn’t want to take him out of that school, but it’s too far away for them to figure it out.
Barbara joins Nathan and Jenelle on the stage to discuss the season. She’s wearing quite the necklace while sitting on that lovely couch. Barbara talks about returning custody to Jenelle. Barbara says that she thinks Nathan is the one pushing for custody more than Jenelle. Barbara admits that Jace is the only caregiver that she’s ever really known. Barbara is concerned about Jace feeling alone once he’s back in Jenelle’s custody. Barbara admits that Jace sees Jenelle every weekend and that she has concerns for the fact that Jenelle constantly takes Jace places and treats it like a vacation. Barbara doesn’t want Jenelle and Nathan to fight in front of the kids, and admits concern for the fact that it might still be happening. Barbara says that it will be a slow process when she returns custody of Jace because it’s going to be painful for both her and Jace. Barbara cries about how Jace is her little buddy and that she’s simply concerned for him and she doesn’t want him to feel like she’s giving him away. There’s some issues about Jace calling Barbara his mom, but Jenelle admits that she thinks he realizes that Jenelle is his mother and Barbara is his grandma. Barbara cries thinking about how she’s had Jace since he was 6 weeks old and that even though he’s not her child, it’ll be the hardest thing she’s ever had to do to give him back to his mother.
The kids come on next, and they’re so adorable. I wish they would just show the kids for an hour straight sometime.
– Jenelle says she ignores the negative feedback about her past.
– Leah tries to give one-on-one attention to all the kids since Ali gets so much attention due to her medical issues.
– Chelsea admits that it’s weird to not be with her kid’s dad but that it simply takes time to move on.
– Kailyn admits that her main fear is Isaac of Lincoln seeing her acting out due to bipolar disorder, but doesn’t fear passing on the genetics of the disorder.
– Aubree’s favorite thing about softball is hitting the ball and running the bases.
– Jace thinks Kaiser is doing well. Jade says he teaches him how to play basketball.
– Ali acts really shy and doesn’t want to talk.
– Aleeah pretends to sleep and doesn’t answer Dr. Drew’s question, but she does do a cheer and toe touch.
– Isaac shows off his karate poses. His red pants are pretty sweet.
MTV shows a little segment of the babies growing up and I probably got a little emotional. They’re all so sweet. The innocence of a child is something that is truly amazing. That’s probably why I’m a teacher.
Lincoln, Addie, and Kaiser join everyone on stage and now the stage is super crowded. Kaiser sleeps, Addie walks, and Lincoln sleeps too.
