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

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. jenelle-picture

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:

leahtweet

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…

chelsea

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

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:

kailyntweet

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!

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.

Leah-

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.



Well friends, it’s finally here! Tonight is the premiere of the second half of Teen Mom 2′s 5th season, and I am way too excited.  So far we’ve seen several small glimpses of the season from a few various trailers and some even smaller sneak peeks of some specific girls.  This sneak peek, which happens to be an OK Magazine exclusive clip, focuses on Leah and her realization that Ali is more aware of her muscular dystrophy than we thought before.

After the drop off with Corey, which was featured on an MTV sneak peek last week, Leah heads out to lunch with her three girls and they meet Leah’s mom, Dawn, at a restaurant.  Leah tells her mom that Ali told Corey that she has muscular dystrophy and that her muscles were hurting.  When Dawn asks why Ali would say something like that, Leah said that she felt like Corey was blaming her for the situation, while Leah just thinks that Ali is smarter than she’s given credit for.

When they end up asking Ali about the incident, Ali lets them know that Dr. Tsao told her that she had muscular dystrophy.  The clip ends with a happier moment when Leah promises Ali that even though she has muscular dystrophy, she can still do anything she wants to do.

Be sure to tune in to MTV tonight at 10/9 Central time to catch the premiere of this season, and be sure to check back tomorrow for a complete recap of the episode.

Also, make sure you check out OK Magazine’s website every Wednesday during the season so that you can be sure to keep up to date on all of their exclusive clips.

This season of Teen Mom 2 is proving to have some of the most dramatic story lines that we’ve seen to date, and Leah’s story is one that really brings a lot of emotions to viewers.  Leah’s daughter, Ali, struggles with Muscular Dystrophy, and we saw her receive her official diagnosis during season 5.  This disease causes Ali to have issues with her heart and lungs, and can cause complications with Ali’s development of her muscles.  Ali has always seemed to be a happy girl, and even though her large motor skills were delayed, we’ve seen her progress throughout Teen Mom 2 from crawling, to walking, to running.

In a sneak peek that’s been released, we see that Ali is much more aware of her disease than we would have originally thought.  While dropping the girls off to go back to Leah’s house, Corey comments that Ali told him that she wasn’t strong because of her Muscular Dystrophy, and it causes some serious emotions to rise in Leah.  We also saw Ali comment on her Muscular Dystrophy during the “Being Dad” special that aired this summer.

Leah has also recently done an interview with InTouch where she commented on the fact that Ali’s medical bills are exceptionally costly.  She said that insurance doesn’t cover everything and that one bill they received was for more than $20,000.  Leah also explains that even though Ali’s physical disabilities are noticeable, her mental capacity is exceptional.  Leah says that Ali is very smart and that her vocabulary is pretty large for that of a 4 year old.

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:

TM2JENELLE

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:

TM2KAILYN

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:

TM2LEAH

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:

TM2CHELSEA

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.

Teen Mom 2 star, Leah Calvert, has been sharing some passive-aggressive messages on social media that have caused some people to question what all the built up anger is really about.  It all started yesterday when Leah posted a picture of the front view of her haircut.  If you remember, Leah went with this short asymmetrical bob-like hairdo last week, and received a lot of criticism for it from people on Facebook.  Because of the backlash, Leah took to Facebook to share the following message:

leah2Judging by this post, a salon owner criticized Leah’s choice in hair cut, and even said that it looked like it was done at beauty school.  This comment apparently set Leah off, and she took to the internet to vent about her frustration.  Personally I feel that by even addressing the comments, you add fuel to the fire, and I can imagine that’s even more true when you’re considered a public figure.  For Leah (who JUST started cosmetology school and is not licensed in any way) to comment that talking negatively about a haircut makes this person’s salon look trashy and unprofessional just draws more attention to the issue than was needed in the first place.

The anger didn’t stop at the hair comments though, as Leah proceeded to hop on Twitter and vent about things some more.  Around 7:15 last night, Leah started sharing this three-part message, which is an obvious subtweet to someone.

tweet1 tweet2 tweet3While there’s not really any indication on who this tweet is about, we can probably narrow it down to a few people who are involved in Leah’s life.  My first and only real assumption would be that it’s about Jeremy.  The comment about being a different person when certain people are around would lead us to assume that Jeremy acts differently when the cameras are rolling and when they’re gone, he’s back to being a “two-faced good for nothing piece of shit.”  Leah did share a picture of Jeremy and her three daughters together just a few days ago, and there hasn’t been any indication that things might be going poorly in their relationship, but these two are pretty good at hiding things.

Leah also shared the next two tweets as well, which still show lots of anger and frustration.

tweet4 tweet5

Until something becomes public, all we can do is speculate on what these messages even mean, but the one thing that’s for sure is that Leah has some built up anger, and it’s not looking like it’s going away any time soon.
