Tonight’s episode focuses primarily on Leah and Chelsea’s segments, so we will only post about their comments tonight. Next week, we’ll recap Jenelle and Kailyn’s segments along with any other information that comes out at the end of the reunion when all girls will come on stage together and ask questions of each other.
Dr. Drew starts the segment by revisiting some of the important things that happened in Chelsea’s parts of this season of Teen Mom 2. After that’s over, Dr. Drew starts asking his questions. Initially he talks about Chelsea’s issue with getting her license, and Chelsea admits that she didn’t have a back up plan. Drew asks about Adam’s behavior, and says that things have to be difficult when Aubree loves her dad so much. Chelsea says that she wanted to punch Adam when he didn’t show up for Aubree’s ball game, and that it’s been a long time since they’ve hooked up. Chelsea says that Adam has been arrested enough times to fill 25 pages of records. Chelsea says she’s open to dating, but that she isn’t currently dating anyone. Chelsea advises people to avoid speed dating, but that she didn’t find any love interests.
Chelsea talks briefly about her custody situation. Chelsea has custody, but wants to revisit the visitation schedule and talks about the importance of having Aubree in a safe position when she’s with Adam and his family. Chelsea basically doesn’t want Aubree in the car when Adam is driving, and I can’t say that I blame her.
Adam joins Chelsea on stage and talks about their hook-ups stating that they have had sex in the last few months. Adam says that he’s only been arrested once and that it was bullshit. Dr. Drew mentions how much Aubree loves her dad, and Adam says that he didn’t even realize how disappointed Aubree was that he didn’t make it to her ball game. Chelsea says that she doesn’t think Adam does the best that he can, but Adam says that he’s trying. Adam gets mad that people call him a bad father. Adam says he’s using condoms now to prevent future pregnancies, but I have a hard time believing that. Adam says that he was arrested for driving to the court house to plug in his ankle bracelet, and realizes that it was stupid to be driving anyway.
Adam and Chelsea get into an argument because Adam took Aubree on a ride on a dirt bike without a helmet or pads when he’s not supposed to have his kid on any motorized vehicles. Adam’s parents videotaped the whole thing, which would probably make me mad because they know the rules too. Now all of America has seen that he violated his visitation guidelines, which I’m sure isn’t a great thing.
Randy joins Chelsea and Adam on the stage, and Randy actually gives Adam credit for stepping up lately. Randy reiterates the fact that Chelsea simply doesn’t want Aubree in a vehicle with Adam driving. Randy says that he wishes the problems would end, especially since Adam has two children. MTV shows a snippit of Adam’s fiery car crash, and Randy hopes that the incident was life-changing for him. Chelsea says that Taylor texts her from time to time and that she doesn’t really want to have a friendship with Taylor at all. Randy and Chelsea think that the relationship needs to be Adam’s job, not her job to be Taylor’s friend. Randy says that he wants more stability in Adam’s relationships before he brings girlfriends into the mix with Aubree and Paislee.
We take a look back at Leah’s season on Teen Mom 2 and catch up on some of her most impacting moments this season. Leah talks with Dr. Drew about her anxiety and admits that she’s constantly pushing things to the side and that when the emotions come to the surface she has a breaking point. Leah says that Ali coming to terms with her illness broke her heart because she realized that Ali felt different. Jeremy is working with a pipeline company and he’s the boss. He works in Ohio, and he’s only home on Saturday nights. Leah says they’ve been to counseling and that it helps them a lot.
Dr. Drew talks about the custody situation and Leah admits that in court they said she was an incompetent mother. Leah starts crying, while Dr. Drew is prying for information. Leah talks about how Ali missed therapy and school because she was hurting. Leah didn’t want to force her to do something because it might hurt her muscles more than Ali would need. Dr. Drew asks if something else got to Corey and Miranda, and mentions the falling asleep on the phone incident with the dye in the baby’s head. Leah says she was only on the medicine for about a week and that Corey didn’t even know about it.
Corey and Miranda come on stage and talk about his attempt to get full custody. Corey says that he’s seen things happening that he doesn’t approve of. Apparently the girls have been missing school frequently and that Ali has several missed therapy appointments. Corey heard rumors about Leah’s medication and says that he thinks there might be more of a medication issue than Leah led on. The main reason he asked for full custody is because he wants what’s best for the girls. Miranda says she simply wants what’s best for the girls, and that she puts herself in Leah’s shoes all the time, but that she takes Corey’s side because she’s around him and the girls a lot more. Corey would like to mediate, but he doesn’t think that it’s going to be possible. Corey said that they’ve had disagreements on some custody things including when the kids should be dropped off on weekends. Corey says that he realizes that there might be a day that Ali can’t walk, but that he’s holding out hope that Ali will be able to walk longer than they think.
Next, all three of them and Lee get together on stage. Leah mentions that since Jeremy wasn’t able to make it, her step-dad joins her. Corey says he doesn’t even want “full” custody but that he does want more time and more control. Leah says that it’s not how she understood it, and that she was under the impression that Corey only wanted her to have the kids on Friday through Sunday. Corey says that he’s confused about the fact that they’ve gotten letters from physical therapy. Corey thinks that he wants 50/50 custody, and Leah cries thinking about having her kids taken away from her. Leah agrees that fathers are important, but that she doesn’t see the point in giving Corey extra time. Corey seems like he’s trying to help Leah out. Lee hopes that Corey and Leah can go to mediation and figure things out, but that the communication between the two of them needs to be figured out.
