So I am sick, but rather than lay in bed and cry myself to sleep like it’s my ex’s birthday, I decided to rough it out and not only live tweet, but give you guys a half-assed recap. I know it’s probably not going to be nearly as deep as Melinda’s recaps, but it’s hard to tweet, recap and smash yourself in the head while watching some of the moves these girls make.
On to the show… (btw, I have been going over e-mails about the guest blogger and replying to many. If you haven’t received a reply, you either sent after I got sick and haven’t had the energy yet, or my e-mail may have been lost in spam. I am going to reply to everyone regardless)
So Leah’s story revolves around the terrible re-enactment of her engagement to Jeremy. They dropped the girls off at Corey’s so he can celebrate their birthday with them (which we see about 2 seconds of), and went to a cabin in the woods. While that sounds like a plot to a billion horror movies, this one actually turned out well for Leah, if you’re into the whole marriage thing.
Jeremy made Leah breakfast in bed to surprise her with the engagement. While the acting was on par with a poorly made adult film, especially how Leah pretended to wake up despite having hair and makeup done, Jeremy has come out and said a lot of these scenes were re-created. The reality is, MTV wasn’t there to catch a lot of their early relationship, so in order to make the show fit together, they had to do that with a lot of things… first date, first engagement, and apparently first pregnancy test (which we almost got to witness in detail).
Yes, Leah removed her IUD because Jeremy wants a child, and without fail it did not take long for her to become pregnant. Sadly, off the top of my head I think this pregnancy ends tragically with a miscarriage, but the virus in my brain could be thinking of something else. I can look at my archives, but that takes the fun out of speculating.
While at the salon, Leah’s friend tries to hint around that relationships don’t always last (like her first), and tries to give Leah a voice of reason. That voice fell on deaf ears as Leah just went ahead and told her she thinks she’s pregnant. Later in the episode, she takes the test (which I already mentioned) and it is confirmed.
I know people like Kailyn, and I do too, but there really isn’t much to recap about her segment. She got to know Javi a bit more, and introduced him to Isaac to make sure he’s not someone who will basically sit on their phone during important first events. Sorry Jo, even the guy in me can’t defend the haircut thing. If your child is getting their very first haircut, try to at least feign interest. It’s one of those things you probably won’t forget, unless you were sitting on your phone the entire time sexting your gf. (did I just use the word sexting? How old AM I?)
Chelsea’s story continues where the last 10 episodes left off. She continues to work at getting her GED while crying over Adam. This week, she was crying because it was his birthday and she wasn’t celebrating it with him. Yes, kind of sad event, but it was completely diminished by the fact that Chelsea cries over anything related to Adam.
The biggest story of the week was the fact that Chelsea moved out of her old apt into what I can only assume is a tanning booth, and she finished her GED leaving us wondering if next week will just be about Adam only. If so, kill me.
This week in the life of Jenelle, she receives a call from the father, or alleged father of her mothers soon to be adopted son, Jace. This brings out memories like the fact that about a month before she was taking her own pregnancy test, she was off banging one of her friends ex-boyfriends at a party.
To anyone following Jenelle over the past few years, this really came as no surprise to anyone watching. The biggest surprise did come when she spoke with Andrew later in the episode and actually sounded like an adult while asking him to get a DNA test.
By the way, during said phone call, Andrew asked how old Jace – his alleged son – is. Let that sink in.
Discuss the episode like I know you guys love to do! I hope my recap didn’t suck!
