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

tmj-jenelleEditors Note – As I mentioned yesterday, Megan is gone for a few days, but fear not, the Teen Mom 2 recap is still here. We have someone new who wants to write for us, and this is her first piece.  Nothing like jumping right into the fire. Please be kind!

Jenelle -  

As seen on last episode Jenelle’s charges were dropped, but Nathan’s were not.  Jenelle reveals she is going to school to be a medical assistant.  Jenelle comes over to Barbara’s and tells her that her charges her dropped but Nathan has to go to jail for 30 days.  Barbara expresses concern that Nathan is violent and that she hopes he has learned his lesson, and is also worried about Jenelle being alone for 30 days since she’s never been without a guy.

Jenelle and Nathan’s lawyer call and tell them the plea has to be moved a week earlier than originally planned.  She also calls to warn them that people have seen Nathan driving around which he is obviously not allowed to do.  Nathan swears up and down that just Jenelle drives or he “walks to the gym.”  He claims he is being charged with a DUI he does not deserve and is depressed that he has to miss some of the pregnancy.

Later Nathan and Jenelle come home after Nathan has been drinking all day.  They get into an argument about Nathan’s drinking habits where he gets very defensive when Jenelle tells him that he binge drinks and makes dumb decisions when he drinks.  He then says “Why am I with you? I just use you,” which absolutely comes out of the blue, and Jenelle says he is putting words into his own mouth.  She remains surprisingly calm compared to most arguments we’ve seen.

They both come to the conclusion they need to quit fighting, especially since Nathan is going to jail in a week, and they want Kaiser to grow up in a household without arguing.

Kailyn -

Javi breaks the news that he has to work in Texas for a month, and Kailyn expresses worry about being alone with the kids since it will be their first time away from one another since basic training.

Later Kailyn meets up with some friends and expresses it might be good that Javi is leaving for a month because they have been fighting a lot and it could be a good break.  She tells them that she going to extend an invitation to Jo and also to Vee, and admit that it was immature for her to be upset about Vee being in Jo’s life.

She calls Jo and tells him she would like to invite Jo and Vee to Issac’s 4th birthday party which is very refreshing to see.  Jo says that he will have to speak to Vee about it and seems pretty apprehensive about it.  Jo and Vee discuss it and Vee explains that she feels awkward going.   Jo says he doesn’t mind missing it because he already had a birthday for Issac.  They both express they need to make the co-parenting situation but for some reason this time they decide going to the birthday is not a good idea.

Issac’s 4th birthday comes up and Kailyn and Javi seem pretty insulted that Vee and Jo did not show up.  Kail tells her friends that she would have gone to Jo’s house if she had been invited because she would want to see where Issac is living.

The birthday goes on with a bunch of friends, family, and a very sleepy and grumpy Issac that does not care to open presents.

Chelsea -

Chelsea is still having problems with her obtaining her license.  Her job informs her that the rules have changed and she cannot work without a license, so for now her job is also on hold.  It sounds like she’ll be able to come back once everything is squared away.

Chelsea is in the process of moving to her new house, and decides to ask her friend Chelsea Grace (different Chelsea, I know confusing), to come move in with her. Adam tells his friend that he gets Aubree every other weekend and would like more visitation.

Chelsea and her friend all move into the new house where Aubree picks out her room, and they all seem pretty excited about it.

Chelsea gets a letter from the Department of Labor which unfortunately informs Chelsea that she still cannot have her license.  The reason is so bizarre…it states that based on tweets from Chelsea’s friend Landon, that he hired her and the wedding was not a one time job.  She still does not have the results whether she passed the license or not.


Overwhelmed with the girls, Leah asks her grandma to come help out so she can go to her part time job at the tanning salon.  Ali could not go to school because she was complaining about pain in her legs which is really heartbreaking to see.

Leah is working at a tanning salon and says how she feels thankful that she has family support to watch the girls so she can work.  She also explains how she feels so overwhelmed with three kids, and especially because Ali is complaining about pain.

Leah drops the girls off to Corey, and Corey reads a letter from the insurance company basically saying they have not been approved for the wheelchair because there is not enough medical evidence to prove she needs one.  Without the insurance covering it, the wheelchair will cost $20,000.  Leah tells Corey that he needs to call and push for the wheelchair because it is needed for school, and also because Ali feels free and can keep with Aleeah when she’s in the wheelchair.

Later Leah meets with a friend and tells her how overwhelmed and stressed out she’s been lately.  She says that with Corey not coming to terms with the wheelchair, the insurance, and Jeremy being gone all the time, that she feels alone raising the kids.  She also tells her friend that she’s thinking of seeing a professional because of all the depression and anxiety she’s feeling with everything.

It’s no surprise to anyone that Adam and Chelsea have had a pretty rocky custody battle over the past few years, and things seemed to escalate quickly after Adam finally filed for visitation rights on last season of Teen Mom 2.  Since he obtained visitation with his daughter Aubree, things have been more hectic than ever.  While Adam is granted visitation while his parents are around, and is not allowed to drive with Aubree in the car, it seems like he’s not showing up for his time with Aubree, and his daughter often tells Chelsea that Adam was driving.

Adam has also missed several visitation times with Aubree because of his recent arrests.  We saw on a preview for season 5b of Teen Mom 2 that Adam was supposed to be with Aubree when he was arrested, and that only causes problems for the child that’s involved in that situation.  Since there’s been so much drama, Chelsea has decided that she wants to try and take away Adam’s visitation rights all together.  Chelsea spoke with Life and Style and told them that she’s documenting everything that Adam does, because if he isn’t going to follow the rules with their daughter, then he doesn’t deserve to keep having visitation rights.

Meanwhile, Adam is dealing with some custody problems of his own regarding his second child, Paislee, with ex-girlfriend Taylor Halbur.  Adam has been far from quiet about things on his Instagram account lately, and it appears that he’s going to try and get custody of Paislee.  Adam has commented that he doesn’t approve of Taylor’s parenting.  He says that she will lie to him about working and go out drinking instead, and that she rarely answers his calls or texts regarding their daughter.  He has claimed to be keeping record of all of Taylor’s social media interactions and sending things to his lawyer that could possibly help his case.

Ok, friends.  Since the return of Teen Mom 2 is right around the corner, we’re going to post an update on some things that have been happening in their lives to keep you up to date before season 5b starts on July 16th.

Jenelle Evans:


So, when we left Jenelle last season, she had found out that she was pregnant with Nathan’s baby.  She had told her mom and Jace, and things seemed to be going well, but we all know that Jenelle never really stays out of trouble for too long.  Nathan was arrested for driving drunk, and this season we’ll be able to see how Jenelle fends for herself while he’s behind bars for about a month.  We’ll also get to see the remainder of Jenelle’s pregnancy, the birth of her second son, and hopefully some footage of the first few weeks of her parenting.

Jenelle is set to deliver baby Kaiser any day now, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on how that whole situation goes.  She also recently celebrated Jace’s preschool graduation, and it looks like Barbara and Nathan were there to help celebrate as well.  Check out these adorable shots from his graduation ceremony.


Kailyn Lowry:


When we left Kailyn, she had just delivered her second son, Lincoln.  She and Javi were adjusting to parenting two children, and they were still working on co-parenting with Jo and his girlfriend Vee.  Kailyn had some emotions that were all over the place after Lincoln was born, but seems to have recovered well.  During this season of Teen Mom 2, we’ll get to see more recent footage of Kailyn.  In an interview with WetPaint, she said that viewers will get to see her relationship with Javi and the progress that she’s made in the relationship she has with her mother.  Viewers will also get to see a better look at her co-parenting with Jo and Vee.  This is the first season that Kailyn has been filmed with both Jo and Vee, so that could be interesting to see.

Jo and Vee recently celebrated their three year anniversary, and things seem to be going well for the couple.  Kailyn, Javi, and Lincoln took a trip to the Bahamas, and they’ve been traveling across the United States promoting Kailyn’s book, “Pride Over Pity” which is officially a New York Times best selling book.  Check out this picture of Kail, Javi, and Lincoln on their vacation.


Leah Calvert:


When we left Leah, she was having problems in her marriage and felt like Jeremy was choosing to be away from their family by taking jobs that were a long ways away from home.  Leah was dealing with Ali’s muscular dystrophy, and struggling with emotions that went along with having a child with special needs.  Since filming ended, things for Leah have seemed to remain stable, to say the least.  Jeremy is working closer to home and spending more time with his family, and Leah is enrolled in cosmetology school and has started selling Mary Kay products.

Corey and Miranda have been pretty good at staying out of the spotlight as much as possible, and we saw in the Being Dad special that Miranda might not enjoy the cameras being around much, but she still seems to put a smile on and deal with it because it’s a part of her life.  They recently celebrated their one year anniversary, and have been enjoying the summer by taking the girls swimming and fishing.


Chelsea Houska:


When we last saw Chelsea she was finishing up aesthetician school, getting a job, and dealing with Adam Lind almost killing two elderly people in a fiery car crash.  Since filming has ended, Chelsea has continued working as an aesthetician and has purchased a home in South Dakota, which we will get to see on season 5b.  Chelsea has been pretty quiet on social media, but updates on Aubree quite frequently.  Aubree recently started playing t-ball, and Chelsea and her father have shared some great pictures of the games.  MTV cameras were there to capture the event, so hopefully we get to see some little kid sports during this season!

Adam has broken up with his girlfriend, Taylor Halbur, who is also the mother of his second child.  He is now dating a woman named Jessica, and after only a month of dating, they decided that they would move in together.  Jessica is 33 years old, and has a teenage son of her own.  Adam also recently went on a rant on Instagram about how Aubree has his last name.  He posted pictures of his child support payments to prove it, and stated “More proof of how fake the show is…they suck in all u idiots who feed off drama to believe everything that’s on TV.”  Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, Adam.


A couple of weeks ago, Adam Lind was arrested again for driving on a revoked license.  He was held for a few days, and has since been released, and gotten back together with his second baby momma, Taylor Halbur.

After the arrest incident, Chelsea decided that she wanted to get stricter guidelines on Aubree’s custody agreement, and a source close to the Teen Mom 2 star released some information to Radar Online about the situation.

The source claims that Adam and Chelsea haven’t spoken since he was released from jail, and that they’re going to have to end u up going to court to get the custody agreement changed.  Chelsea seems to be concerned that Adam doesn’t follow rules in general, so he probably won’t follow a custody agreement.  Part of their agreement is that Aubree is never in the car with Adam driving, and since he doesn’t have a license, it would be against their agreement and against the law.  Since Adam has continued to drive, and faces some jail time now, the source claims that Chelsea is hoping that Adam’s visitations become supervised by someone other than Adam’s parents.

The source also claimed that Adam hasn’t seen Aubree in nearly a month, and that he hasn’t had contact with her since his release from jail last week.

Chelsea hasn’t publically commented on the situation, although Randy has made a few remarks on his Twitter account, including this one.



Radar Online posted today that this will be the last season of Teen Mom 2.  Although this seems to be an abrupt ending, given that ratings have remained high, and the girls are still filming, it’s been confirmed by an MTV production source that season 5 will be the last season.

What we do know is that Teen Mom 2 will have an extended 5th season.  As of now, the girls have filmed a season 5 reunion show, but that was before the extended season was filmed.  We know that Jenelle and Kailyn have been filming, and we can assume that Leah and Chelsea have also filmed, even though they aren’t as public about it.  The footage that MTV has will be gotten since the reunion show was filmed will be used for a season 5b, which is essentially a whole new season, after a short break in the middle.

I can’t say that I’m surprised.  Although ratings have been high, and the show has been number 1 in its time slot for most of the season, the girls are no longer teens.  The children will be entering kindergarten soon, and filming in a public school would be difficult.  Every child on the show has at least one parent who has had, or is pregnant with, another child.  The unplanned pregnancies from this group of girls has been pretty high, and I just don’t know that the show is getting its point across any more.

What we do know, is that the girls are still under contract for filming until the end of April.  This leads us to assume that they will film footage for the second half of the season through April, have a few months for MTV to prepare and edit their footage, and then they’ll either film a new reunion special, or head to Los Angeles or New York for publicity for the second half of this season.

My best guess is that MTV will air season 5 of 16 & Pregnant during the hiatus during Teen Mom 2′s final season.  Although this isn’t confirmed, it would give MTV’s producers enough time to edit footage and film anything else that needs to be filmed, before airing the final few episodes.

There’s no news yet as to whether there will be a Teen Mom 4 with the girls from the next crop of 16 & Pregnant.  If I had to guess, I would say that MTV will probably stray away from it simply because of the fact that Teen Mom 3 was a flop after only one season, and the viewers just weren’t able to connect with the girls as much as they could with the girls of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2.

I would also assume that there will be a farewell special that will star the girls of Teen Mom 2, much like there was for the original Teen Mom girls.  Maybe we’ll even be fortunate enough to get some catch-up specials on Kailyn, Leah, Chelsea, and Jenelle a year or so after the season ends, just like we saw with the Teen Mom specials that aired a few weeks ago.

Teen Mom 3′s Briana Dejesus has had some interesting habits on Twitter lately, and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be ending any time soon.  Briana went missing from Twitter for a period of a week after an incident regarding Jenelle.  A couple of weeks ago, Briana tweeted an x-rated picture, and quickly deleted it after it caused some controversy.  The newest issue happened just a couple of days ago when she took to Twitter to bash Chelsea Houska’s intelligence.

This is the conversation that started it all:


Well, that escalated quickly.  I’m sure most of you know that Randy uses a lot of sarcasm, so his comment didn’t seem like it was anything out of the ordinary to me, but obviously Briana thought differently.  I’m going to try and give her the benefit of the doubt on this one, and hope that it was simply a misunderstanding on Briana’s part, but I’ll also admit that she went on the defensive way too quickly.

1. If you have a problem with someone, bring it up with that person, not their parents.  I would hope that we would all be mature enough to not bash someone through their parents, but I guess I was wrong about that one.  I couldn’t imagine calling someone’s mom to put down their child.

2. At least she didn’t tag Chelsea in the tweet, but it’s still extremely obvious who Briana is talking about.  I think if Briana would have tagged Chelsea, things would have gotten more dramatic than they did.  Chelsea has over a million followers on twitter who seem to always come to her defense in any controversial situation.

3.  What is with all of the Teen Mom girls having it out for each other lately?  There’s been drama between just about every combination of girls that I can think of.  I would think that all of these girls, given that they all became mothers at a young age and were thrown into the spotlight, would understand exactly how important it is to not burn bridges with people.

4.  What happened to that saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”
