Teen Mom Bios: Maci | Farrah | Catelynn | Amber | Leah | Chelsea | Kailyn | Jenelle Teen Mom Junkies


Ever since Teen Mom 2 star Leah Calvert was seen on season 5 having a serious reaction to her prescribed anti-anxiety pills, rumors have been swirling that she’s got some pretty serious addiction problems.  While Leah has never mentioned the addiction, sources that claim to know her have posted online saying that pictures of her doing meth have been shopped around, and that her dealer illegally sells Leah nearly 40 prescription pain pills a week.  Really though…who could forget about the dye for the baby’s head incident?

Back in December, Corey and Leah had a custody hearing regarding their 5 year old twin girls, Ali and Aleeah.  Corey was fighting for full custody, and Leah was simply trying to maintain custody of her children.  Around that time, Leah reportedly took a drug test and used the findings from the test as evidence of her sobriety in court.

The test, which was a hair follicle assessment, showed that Leah was not abusing any form of drug.  Some readers are skeptical as to whether or not the results were required for court, or if Leah simply used the test as a way to weight her side of the custody battle.

Leah and Corey are reportedly filming for a 6th season of Teen Mom 2, which should air sometime this spring.  While we can’t guarantee that the custody battle will be featured, we can assume that MTV will focus on the new arrangements that are made for the girls.  Leah currently has the girls for 4 nights each week, while Corey has them for 3 nights a week.  This is just about as even of a custody split that they could have, and both parents are reportedly fine with the way that things worked out.


I would like to say that the things Farrah does genuinely surprise me, but ever since the first James Deen porno came out, things have been pretty predictable.

Last night, Farrah was at a party for the AVN Awards in Las Vegas.  In case you’re wondering what the AVN Awards are, they’re basically awards for people who are in the adult film industry.  The awards show has several interesting categories, including “Best Anal Sex Scene” and “Best Group Sex Scene” just to name a couple.  You can read more about the categories and nominees right HERE.

Our dear Farrah was nominated for two awards of the night.  The first was “Best Celebrity Sex Tape” for her role in Farrah 2: Backdoor and More.  Her other nomination came in the category of “Best Product Line for Men” which featured items from her sex toy line molded specifically from her lady parts.  Farrah ended up winning the sex toy award and shared a picture of her trophy on her Twitter account.

Since Farrah has become such a prominent figure in the adult film industry, she’s expanding her endeavors, and rumors has it that the blow up doll in that picture at the top of the article is going to be making an appearance in her toy collection sometime soon.  While the doll is simply a prototype for now, and there’s no place for you to buy it, Farrah still made headlines while posing with the doll at the awards show.

As far as we can tell, Farrah’s parents spend a lot of time caring for Sophia, and Farrah has also hired a nanny to care for Sophia when her parents aren’t available.  Farrah is making pretty good money from all of these appearances, and even though she isn’t returning for Teen Mom’s 5th season this year, her father has hinted that they might be filming for something new.

Michael claims that he can’t tell any details of why the family was filming, but our sources seem to think that Farrah and her new boyfriend are being filmed along with her family for the upcoming season of Couples Therapy but if I were you, I would bet that we’ll see Farrah back on MTV within the next year or so.

I’ve received a lot of requests for a brief update on all of the 16 & Pregnant girls.  Some of you had favorites from each season that didn’t go on to Teen Mom spinoffs, and you’ve been searching for answers on where they’re at now.  I’m here to help as much as I can.

This post will cover all of the girls from 16 & Pregnant’s first season, which aired in 2009.  While not a ton of information is available on each girl, I’ll do my best to provide as much as I can.  I am planning on posting about a new season each week, which means we’ll have something to talk about in the moments that are a little slower.

1. Maci Bookout


Maci was a teen from Tennessee when we met her back in 2009.  She was pregnant with her son Bentley, and was dealing with issues in a relationship with boyfriend, Ryan Edwards.  Since Maci’s episode finished, she went on to film 4 seasons of Teen Mom.  Maci dated around, and eventually settled down with Taylor McKinney.  Taylor is from Texas, but moved to Tennessee to be with Maci and Bentley this summer.  Maci recently announced her second pregnancy, and is due with a baby girl in June of 2015.  Maci’s story will be followed more closely on an upcoming season of Teen Mom, which is set to air early next month.

2. Farrah Abraham


Farrah, a teen from Council Bluffs, Iowa, was pregnant with her deceased boyfriend’s baby.  She gave birth to daughter, Sophia, on the first season of 16 & Pregnant.  After her episode finished, she was chosen to participate in Teen Mom for 4 seasons.  After Farrah’s time with MTV was over, she got into some trouble.  She had a DUI arrest, and starred in 2 adult films.  She eventually moved to Austin, Texas, and began making appearances around the country at gentlemen’s clubs.  Farrah will not be returning for a 5th season of Teen Mom, but has locked in appearances on E! Network’s Botched, and she also has a role in a low-budget horror film.  Farrah is currently dating a new guy named Simon.

3. Amber Portwood

Amber was pregnant with boyfriend Gary Shirley’s child when we first met her.  The couple struggled to make things work, and ended up splitting up after the birth of their daughter, Leah.  Amber was chosen for Teen Mom, and will be returning for a 5th season of the show in February.  During her filming for Teen Mom, Amber struggled with pain pill addiction, and ended up going to rehab a couple of times, having a suicide attempt, and ultimately served about 18 months of her life in prison.  Amber has made a pretty good recovery, and seems to remain positive on social media accounts.  Amber has recently published a book titled, “Never Too Late” which shows her story of addiction in a new light.  She is working on regaining formal custody of her daughter.  Amber is currently dating a guy who is allegedly a huge Teen Mom fan, but things seem to be going well for them, and they keep their drama off of the Internet, so I’m hoping things keep going like they are.

4. Ebony Rendon


Ebony was a 17 year old from Colorado when we met her on season 1 of 16 & Pregnant.  She and boyfriend Josh struggled with the fact that when they had a child together, both of them couldn’t join the Air Force.  The couple welcomed their daughter, Jocelyn, and later went on to get married.  Josh was enlisted in the military and the couple lived on base, which has strict filming policies.  This is a main reason that they were not chosen for Teen Mom.  The couple found out that they were pregnant in 2011, but the pregnancy ended in miscarriage.  This miscarriage caused Ebony to spiral into depression and self-medication.  Eventually, CPS came and raided the Rendon household and found unsuitable living conditions for Jocelyn.  The couple ended up losing custody for over 6 months.  During the time they were without Jocelyn, they conceived again, and later welcomed their second daughter, Jayda, into the world.  Since this happened, Ebony and Josh have divorced and Ebony has taken a new route in her life.  Ebony came out as bisexual after her split from Josh, and she is dating a woman named Judith that she met during high school.  Apparently there was always chemistry there, but Ebony ended up pregnant and Judith was in a different relationship.  Things seem to be in place for Ebony at this point in her life, and as far as we can tell, she has primary custody of both Jocelyn and Jayda.

5. Whitney Purvis


Whitney Purvis was a 16 year old from Georgia when we met her.  She and boyfriend, Weston Gosa, welcomed Weston Jr. during her episode of 16 & Pregnant.  Since filming ended, Whitney has had a few arrests, including one incident where she was caught stealing a pregnancy test from Walmart.  Whitney did get pregnant again, and she and Weston welcomed their second child, River, into the world in October of 2014.  Whitney’s oldest son suffers from a genetic disease called alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency.  This disease effects the lungs and liver, and can sometimes lead to shortened life expectancy.  Whitney revealed later that she has a 70% chance of out-living her oldest son.  As far as we know, the couple’s second child does not have the genetic disorder, but he is still relatively young and there’s always the possibility for diagnosis later in life.

6. Catelynn Lowell


Catelynn Lowell and boyfriend, Tyler Baltierra, chose adoption for their daughter Carly when they were only 16 years old.  The couple went on to be filmed for Teen Mom, but struggled with putting their child up for adoption.  They ended up getting engaged during Teen Mom, but called the engagement off shortly before appearing on VH1’s Couples Therapy.  Catelynn and Tyler are filming with MTV for a 5th season of Teen Mom, and their story line will focus mainly on their second pregnancy.  The couple revealed in February 2014 that they were trying to conceive, and less than 2 months later, rumors started swirling that they had gotten pregnant.  The couple confirmed rumors and ended up welcoming their daughter, Novalee Reign Baltierra, into the world earlier this month.   Pictures of Nova haven’t surfaced yet, but we can expect to see them within the next couple of weeks.  Rumor has is that Novalee’s name came straight from the 2000 film titled “Where The Heart Is” which features the struggles surrounding a pregnant woman who is ditched in a Walmart parking lot by her boyfriend, and ends up living at Walmart and delivering her child there.


The stars of Teen Mom 2 are currently being filmed for a 6th season of their hit reality show, but this season we’re going to be able to meet someone new.

Chelsea Houska’s boyfriend of nearly 6 months, Cole DeBoer, will be caught on camera this season.  Chelsea hasn’t brought many guys around her daughter, Aubree, but has been strung up on Adam since the two became parents for the first time back in 2009 on their episode of 16 & Pregnant.  Chelsea’s story line for the last couple of seasons of Teen Mom has focused on her schooling and issues with Adam’s bad boy reputation.  Now that Cole is in the picture, it seems like we’ll be hearing less about Adam.  Honestly, I’m happy about this.

Radar Online reports that a source close to Chelsea came to them to share information about Chelsea’s new storyline for season 6.  The source claims that Cole is a very private guy, and that the two of them have very little drama in their lives.

Radar’s article says that most of the segments featuring Chelsea and Cole will simply show them spending time together with Aubree or going on dates.  Chelsea has shared that Aubree really likes Cole, and the three of them seem to be doing well at the moment.

Chelsea reportedly doesn’t talk to Cole about issues regarding Adam, and it seems like Chelsea might be taking more steps to encourage Adam to get out of the picture all together.  Adam is currently awaiting trial regarding stalking charges on ex-girlfriend Brooke Beaton, and due to these charges, Chelsea is allegedly planning on taking him back to court to limit his visitation rights even more.

As of now, Chelsea is the only mother from Teen Mom 2 who has not gotten married or had a second pregnancy.  She is also the only girl from Teen Mom 2 that has completed any form of technical training or schooling past a high school diploma or GED.

We all remember Farrah’s botched lip injections from a week or so ago, and it’s hard for me to get the mental image of that swollen upper lip out of my mind at times.  Thankfully, Farrah’s lips landed her a new spot on reality television on E! Network’s Botched, which will air sometime this spring.  Her lips have also made a full recovery from the bad injections, which means that Farrah was back at work on Saturday at a nightclub in New York.

Farrah had several pictures posted which shows off her newly fixed face.  Her lips seem to be back to “normal” for her (although it’s hard to remember what “normal” looks like), and it seems like she’s pretty happy to not have her upper lip dominating the rest of her face.

Farrah’s body has been so manipulated since we met her on 16 & Pregnant that at times I forget what she even looked like before she began going under the knife.  For this reason, I decided to take two pictures of Farrah and put them side by side for a comparison.

Farrah Collage

On the left is Farrah before she had any work done to her face.  On the right is a picture of Farrah from her Saturday appearance in New York.  I’m kind of shocked that I hadn’t put them side by side until now.  The person Farrah is today is nearly unrecognizable next to the person she was only a few short years ago.

Farrah will not be returning on the new season of Teen Mom, which is set to air on February 2nd, 2015.  She is, however, scheduled for several more appearances at clubs, and she’s been working on a part in a low-budget slasher film.  Rumors are going around that Farrah may be making more reality television appearances in the future, but for now the only confirmed appearance is on Botched.

1. Maci Bookout is in a bad accident


Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout was involved in a pretty serious car accident this weekend.  Earlier this morning she took to Instagram to share the collage of pictures of her Jeep Wrangler after the incident.  Maci’s son, Bentley, was in the vehicle with her when this all happened, and Maci is also around 20 weeks pregnant, so there were obvious concerns about everyone’s safety during the accident.  Maci shared online that she and Bentley were lucky to walk away from the accident with only a few bruises, and that her unborn daughter is perfectly healthy as well.  Maci pointed out that the Jeep rolled 3 times and that she was not responsible for the accident.  Other vehicles were also involved, and we’re hoping that everyone involved is able to make a full recovery.

2. Jeremy’s back on Twitter

Jeremy took a social media hiatus for about 6 weeks after the cheating incident went down, but he’s back and it seems like he might be up to his same old antics.  Jeremy had an alleged fling with a girl named Brittany Musick, and he reportedly shared naked pictures with her via text message while still married to Teen Mom 2’s Leah Messer-Calvert.  Jeremy’s been back on Twitter for less than 24 hours, and he’s only done one thing: favorited one of Brittany’s tweets about having a talent agent.

brittany jeremy 1

Normally, I wouldn’t be concerned about Jeremy favoriting things, because it really doesn’t matter, but a couple things struck me as strange.  The first is that the initial Tweet is from Christmas day, which means that Jeremy would have gone through 3 and a half weeks of Brittany’s Tweets simply to favorite this one.  The second issue is that Jeremy’s caused social media uproar by flirting with this girl, and the instant he’s back online, she’s the first person he goes for.  Is there more to this story than we know?

3. Isaac has a 5th birthday party


It really doesn’t seem possible that Isaac (or any of the Teen Mom kids) could be 5 years old yet, but I guess they’ve grown up before our eyes.  Isaac celebrated his 5th birthday this weekend with a Ninja Turtle party, and it looks like he had a blast.  Kailyn took to Instagram to share a few photos of his birthday celebration, and to thank people for all of the birthday wishes for Isaac.  We’re not sure if MTV was around to film this event, but they normally don’t miss birthdays.  Hopefully we see more of his party on season 6 of Teen Mom 2.

4. Briana makes a trip to the hospital


Teen Mom 3 star, Briana Dejesus, has been pretty sick lately.  She’s posted about her health on Twitter, and yesterday, her boyfriend Shoc shared the news that she was in the hospital due to the health issues.  While we don’t know any official diagnosis, it seems like things are pretty rough for Briana.  This morning she shared a heartfelt message on her Instagram thanking Shoc for being there for her while she’s in the hospital.

Just wanted to say thank you for these last few days, even if it was for the smallest things…like surprising me at the hospital…like helping me put my hair up bc I can’t use both of my hands, helping me walk to the bathroom every 5 seconds, helping me put my shirt on so it doesn’t get stuck to my iv, helping me take a shower, or buying me food from outside cause the meals here stink, tucking me into bed, staying up with me all night even tho I knew u were tired, holding my hand when I was receiving antibiotics thru my veins bc it hurt/burned so bad. Just thank you for putting all the nonsense aside and being here for me. Thank u @krownshoc

Here’s to hoping that Briana makes a full recovery and feels better soon!
