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


Apparently Leah received a decent amount of backlash regarding her argument with Corey in front of the twins, and her continual bad mouthing of the situation after the girls were in the car.  Leah took to some social media accounts in an attempt to shed some light on the whole situation, which seems to be her thing lately.  Leah wrote:

I am admitting that I shouldn’t have been using bad language in front of my children. It was in the heat of the moment and It was a scene where you only saw certain parts of the filming! As for the child support issue, he was ordered, by the State of WV, the $1200 a month in child support. I wanted to work with him and was willing to accept $800 a month. Approximately 6 months after that he wasn’t paying his half of the medical bills, to which all of them were in my name and I was getting collection letters. I agreed to lower his payments to $200 a month so we could pay off the medical bills. This agreement lasted for a year and they never were paid. This is when we went back to court, to get the bills paid and out of collections! Also, to restore my credit.

I struggle with this whole situation because I honestly don’t know who’s right and who’s wrong.  I think the thing that bothers me the most is that there’s definitely more to the story on both ends and things just aren’t adding up the way that they should.  Corey has papers from the physical therapist saying that if Ali doesn’t start showing up for appointments, she’ll be cut from their program.  Leah has this whole issue with child support money and getting rights to Ali’s medical insurance so she can get the wheelchair to go through quicker.  I’m honestly so confused on who has said what on this situation that I just hope MTV actually shows us how it goes.


I post about blind items sometimes, just because it’s fun to speculate about which girls from the show are making poor life choices and trying to keep them under the table.

Blind items have revealed in the past that Maci Bookout made a pornographic film while partying in Miami, that Farrah Abraham was selling herself for sex, and that an unknown Teen Mom 2 star was photographed using meth.  While there’s really no way to tell if these items are true or not, most of them don’t seem like they’re too far from reality.

This blind item is short and simple, but it packs a punch for sure.  It states:

This Teen Mom is using her child support money to support the drug habit of herself and significant other. She has already run through her money from the show.

Well…let’s narrow things down.

If we look at the girls from Teen Mom, then Maci is the only one that would be receiving child support.  We’ve heard that she’s in trouble for not paying her taxes, which means she doesn’t have a ton of money anyway, but it might not be extremely far-fetched if Maci ended up being a drug addict.  Farrah is a single mother (when she’s actually with her kid) and since Sophia’s father died, she wouldn’t be receiving child support.  Amber doesn’t have primary custody of Leah, but seems to co-parent with Gary pretty well.  Since she doesn’t have Leah the majority of the time, it would be assumed that SHE would be paying the child support for her daughter.  Catelynn and Tyler gave their daughter up for adoption, so they obviously don’t receive child support either.

The Teen Mom 2 cast has some promising story lines, and three girls that receive child support.  Jenelle has a history with drugs, but doesn’t receive or pay child support because Jace’s father is out of the picture and Barbara allowed Jenelle to quit paying her child support once Jace was with his mother more frequently.

Chelsea may or may not receive child support.  It’s always off and on whether she’s getting money or not.  I would also go out on a limb here and say that even though Chelsea may enjoy to have a few drinks while Aubree is with Adam’s family for the weekend, she still had a job that will pay the bills after the MTV money is gone.  Although we know that Chelsea has been allegedly dating someone for a short amount of time, we don’t know enough about this guy to assume that Chelsea is buying drugs for the couple.

Kailyn is married to Javi, who is in the air force.  With routine drug screenings and strict rules, it’s pretty unlikely that Kailyn is providing drugs for her and Javi.  Kailyn is also breastfeeding, and seems pretty adamant about making sure that the milk that gets to her son, Lincoln, is the best stuff he can have.  We all remember her stressing about pumping on the episode when she went out for her 22nd birthday.

That leaves us with Leah, who seems to fit the requirements for this blind item.  Leah has been pushing Corey for more child support, and on recent episodes of Teen Mom 2 it appears that she’s slurring words.  While we don’t know a lot about Jeremy’s past, it’s possible that he’s had drug issues before.  Leah has admitted on Teen Mom 2 that she has a spending problem, but she’s never mentioned anything about addiction.

To top things off, All The Teen Moms posted an exclusive article stating that the reason Corey wants full custody of the twins is because Leah has a history of abusing prescription painkillers.  The article says that the addiction started after the birth of Jeremy and Leah’s daughter, Adalynn in February of 2013.  The source told All The Teen Moms that the prescription painkiller Percocet is what Leah was taking for a while, and that her county in West Virginia is known for their drug problems.


There’s nothing I love more than a good social media meltdown, complete with terrible grammar, lack of spellcheck, and some raw emotion.  This time around, the meltdown comes from Teen Mom 2’s Leah Calvert.  Apparently Leah was reading through her mentions and her news feed, and there were several comments from people about her excessive spending, mistreatment of Corey, and purchasing a horse.  Leah took to Twitter to address the issue in this 14 part rant.  I’m not going to link ALL of the Tweets, but her name is @TM2LeahDawn so if you want to check it out on individual Tweets, go for it.  Here’s what she wrote (please note that I am keeping the spelling and grammar the exact way that Leah shared it):

As I’m reading through my twitter feed I can’t help but wonder what goes through som eof you alls who mind…First off, the horse was given to the girls and for Ali to use for therapeutic riding from her grandparents.  Second the money I spend or “spent” so to say wasn’t only on make up.  You guys do seem to forget that this is reality TV and many things are edited to fit timing etc. So you guys really should take a step back to THINK before being so judgmental.  I love to hear you opinions even the ones that is so hurtful because I take it to heart and try to let it make me a stronger person by looking at opinions as a lesson and be more understanding of what each and everyone of you guys are trying to say to me.  I try to share my story in the more inspirational way possible.  All I’ve ever tried to do is stay loyal and honest to each of my viewers so you can relate to certain circumstances and either learn or give me the advice I love accepting and remaining strong through all the ups and downs that I have.  I appreciate everyone, and will always remain the person I was 5 or 6 years ago.  Remember I don’t do this for myself I do this for others. I love my daughters with all of my heart and all I will ever want for them is an amazing life and for them to be able to look up to their mommy as a role model. I hope in time each and everyone of you guys out their a over the world can see I care about every human being and all I want is to make a difference and bring peace to everyone out their.  I’ll be the first to admit I put everything before myself and I always will because I am so soft hearted and only want the best for my family and the world itsef. I love each and everyone of you guys and I hope my journey on TM2 has made a difference in many others lives !! We love you guys ! !!

So, basically Leah starts this tangent saying that everyone is wrong about her spending and that sometimes people should take a step back and reevaluate things they see on television, but ends it by saying that she loves everyone’s opinions and that she loves everyone who watches her show and simply wants world peace.

I don’t even know what to make of this nonsense.

P.S. Ali finally received her wheelchair, but I’m not sure if it’s under Jeremy’s insurance or Corey’s.  Here’s a picture:



It’s Whoopsie-Doo Wednesday, and I’m feeling completely overwhelmed with schoolwork, so I’m taking a break and writing this article.

This week’s OK! Magazine exclusive sneak peek of Teen Mom 2 features Leah, and she is looking pretty rough.  Her season has been revolving around Ali’s medical condition and her excessive spending, so this sneak peek combines the two.  I didn’t think it was possible.  Anyway, Leah’s trying to get more child support money from Corey (excessive spending) since his insurance won’t cover the cost of Ali’s wheelchair (medical condition).

Leah is making popcorn and Jeremy asks her what she thinks Corey will do when he gets called to court, and Leah explains that he won’t have to go to court but that they’re just figuring out things through their lawyers from now on and doing things strictly based on what the child support calculator says.  Jeremy says that he knows people who make less money than Corey, but they’re still paying upwards of $1000 a month for child support.  Leah says that initially she had tried to make things as easy on Corey as possible, but that after a while it just got to the point that she realized he needed to pay more.  I’m not sure that things between these two have gotten any better, because a few weeks ago, Leah shared some messages about her divorce and custody lawyer along with a comment about how it’s sad when dads have to be court-appointed to do what they’re supposed to.

Leah mentions that Ali will be on Jeremy’s insurance now, and I’m not sure on the back story with that one.  Jeremy says that having Ali on his insurance isn’t a problem and thinks that his insurance will probably cover her wheelchair, unlike Corey’s.

Adding onto this issue is the fact that allegedly Corey has recently filed for full custody of his daughters.  An article in InTouch states that Corey was mad at this incident and is taking Leah to court for full custody of the twins.  The source in the article, which isn’t named, says that Corey used the fact that Leah was on prescription medication as grounds in his court case.

P.S. I’m pretty sure the girlses are eating cheese puffs in this scene, which made me think of you guys.


Be sure to tune in tonight at 10/9 Central to watch Teen Mom 2.  I’ll be live Tweeting throughout the episode, so follow us on Twitter @TeenMomJunkies.


Teen Mom 2’s Leah Calvert has been pretty open about therapy for her daughter, Ali, who has a form of Muscular Dystrophy.  One part of therapy that Leah’s mentioned several times this season is Equine therapy, which is essentially therapy with horses.  She and husband, Jeremy Calvert, sold their previous home, moved into an apartment, and began the search for a perfect piece of land for a horse or two in order to be able to give Ali the therapy that they felt she needed.  It looks like Leah has finally pulled the trigger on things, as she announced via Twitter that she had purchased her first horse for her children, and that she was looking for some saddles for them to use.


It looks like she’s also recently purchased a new home, so her family of 5 isn’t crammed into that small apartment any longer.  While all of this seems like great news, it’s hard for me to think that Leah is financially able to do all of these things.  Most of her story line revolves around Ali’s health issues, but the other part of her story line is the fact that they don’t have enough money to pay their medical bills.  Regardless of an MTV paycheck, doctor’s appointments aren’t cheap, and it seems like Leah has some serious spending problems.  She’s admitted to spending thousands of dollars to become a consultant for Mary Kay, and it seems like every time we see her, she’s got a new vehicle, freshly manicured nails, or a designer purse.  Let’s not forget the incident with the brand new washer and dryer from a couple of episodes ago, which nearly maxed out Leah and Jeremy’s credit cards.

Some people have been saying that Leah and Jeremy aren’t really struggling for money, and that MTV is simply having them act like the financial burdens of things are putting them in over their heads, but others think that Leah is simply careless with her money.   While I am happy that Ali is getting therapy, horses are expensive and they can be a lot of work.  Do you think that Leah’s spending is out of control, or do you think she’s putting on a front for viewers of Teen Mom 2?

UPDATE: Here’s a picture of the horse! The horse on the right that Leah is next to is the horse that Ali will be using for therapy.  People on Facebook have commented that the horse is young and probably not trained for therapy purposes.


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:


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!
