This post is going to be a little different, so stick with me while we work our way through it. There’s been a lot of drama since the last episode of Teen Mom 2 aired, and I’m going to be breaking it down by each girl that’s involved. This post will cover Jenelle’s letter from PETA, Leah’s tweet to a divorce lawyer, Chelsea’s new alleged boyfriend, and Kailyn’s new school schedule. I’ll also talk briefly about some filming opportunities for the cast of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2.
We’ll start with Jenelle, since her section is probably the most controversial of the bunch. Jenelle was seen on this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2 abusing her boyfriend’s dog. Some people are siding with Jenelle saying that the dog wasn’t technically hers anyway, but most were outraged at how she acted in the situation. It turns out that PETA was notified about the incident and they wrote a letter to Jenelle about steps that she could take to ensure safety for her pets, and to be sure that something like this doesn’t happen again. Here is a short excerpt from the letter written by PETA:
We have been inundated with complaints from viewers about the treatment of your dogs as profiled on last night’s Teen Mom. Viewers can see that as much as you want to do the right thing for your dogs, you have so much going on in your life that you have neither the time nor the patience to give them what they need. They are full of feelings and needs, just as you are, and when you scream at them, it clearly frightens and upsets them.
The letter also goes on to let Jenelle know that people are willing to help her rehome the dogs and offers a contact person for Jenelle to reach out to if she feels like taking PETA up on their offer. I’m sure Jenelle won’t respond to the letter or rehome her pets, but at least someone said something to her. Jenelle spoke to MTV after the incident and posted an exclusive clip to their website about how the whole thing was a learning experience for her. Feel free to check out PETA’s entire letter to Jenelle if you want.
One girl down, three to go…
Leah’s up next, I suppose. It’s pretty obvious that on this season of Teen Mom 2, Jeremy and Leah’s marriage is a little out of control, and there’s been a ton of arguing. While Leah’s been on social media proclaiming how much better their relationship is now, it caused some controversy with fans when she shared a Tweet promoting a divorce lawyer. Her Tweet said:
There’s no real indication as to why Leah would post something like this in the first place, and lots of people are assuming that she’s going to be getting a divorce in the near future. While Leah’s been through a divorce before and probably used this lady’s services, it’s unsure whether she’s simply promoting the lady’s law practice, or if she’s actually needing her services again. Leah hasn’t commented on the situation at all, which makes people even more curious about what’s happening.
Two girls down, two to go…
Let’s talk about Chelsea next. Chelsea has been single for quite a while, and even though she’s been allegedly dating a few people in the past year or so, nothing has ever really come to the surface as to who any of the guys are. We know she’s been on and off with Adam since we’ve known her, but it appears that in the last season of Teen Mom 2 she’s completely ready to move on.
The latest news about Chelsea’s love life comes from OK! Magazine where they reveal that Chelsea might be dating Taylor Halbur’s (Adam’s ex-girlfriend and Paislee’s mother) ex-boyfriend. The article claims that this guy is named Andrew Anderson, and that Chelsea pounced on the opportunity to date him after finding out that he had been talking to Taylor. The article claimed that Chelsea never got over the fact that Adam had a child with another girl, and that she was searching for any possible way to hurt Taylor.
Chelsea took to Twitter to defend herself by claiming that the article was not true at all, and that the Instagram account linked to the OK! article wasn’t even the correct person.
Three girls down, one to go…
Kailyn is last, but not least for this outrageously long post. (Hopefully you’re all still reading, but I’m sorry if I’m boring you all.)
It looks like Kailyn and her husband, Javi, are both enrolled in school this semester, and they seem to be a little nervous about it. Kailyn shared information via Twitter by saying:
Javi admitted that he is nervous about both of them being in school, but lots of fans were able to support her and it seems like the nerves have gone away for now. No word on what Javi is going to school for at the moment, but last I knew, Kailyn was still working on some dentistry schooling. I could be wrong, so if you know something more recent, link it in the comments so I can fix it.
Either way, two parents in college with two kids at home is going to be hard to manage, but props to these two for rising to the challenge and attempting to better themselves for a future where MTV isn’t involved.
Four girls down, one story left…
I probably could’ve made this section into its own post later in the day, but it’s short so I’ll post it now. It looks like the Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 girls are getting together in New York City this month for some filming. The reunion show and Unseen Moments special for Teen Mom 2 will be filmed on the weekend of August 24th. This means we’ll get to see some updated footage of baby Kaiser at the reunion, and we’ll also get to know more information about the end of this season of Teen Mom 2.
The Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 girls (minus Farrah) will be joining together in New York that same weekend to film for a special called “Ask the Moms” which is supposed to be a similar set up to the Teen Dad special which was hosted by Dr. Drew. There’s no real information on whether the Teen Mom girls have been filming for this special, or if the return of Teen Mom is still going to happen. Either way, three of the original four will be back on our screens in the next few months.
If you’re in the New York City area and want to score some free tickets to be a part of a live studio audience during either of these specials, check out THIS WEBSITE and request them. If you end up getting to go, please send us a tip and let us know all about your experience!
