Hey friends. It’s been a few days since I posted. I’m adjusting to this new job and trying to manage time, so I really do appreciate you all sticking with me throughout these last couple of weeks.
1. Teen Mom’s air date is pushed back.
Earlier we had exclusively revealed information about the Teen Mom season 5 premiere date, but we are sad to inform you that the premiere date has been pushed back at least 2 weeks. Up until this last week, MTV was still filming for the season in order to ensure that information on Catelynn and Tyler’s first few weeks with Novalee and Maci’s second pregnancy were featured on the season. The trailer for the new season should be out by February 2nd, which is only a week away. The actual episodes should start happening one week after the trailer comes out. Rumor has it that pictures of Novalee will surface around the time that the trailer comes out, and that she has a striking resemblance to Carly but with dark hair.
2. Jenelle gets lip injections
Jenelle isn’t exactly a newbie when it comes to body modifications. She has tattoos, piercings, and has had breast enhancement in the past, so when the rumor mill started turning about her potential lip injections, I wasn’t exactly surprised. Jenelle frequently gets made fun of during Teen Mom 2 episodes for her thin lips. If you follow any of the Teen Mom 2 threads online during the episodes, people mention it during every one of her segments. Anyway, Jenelle decided to do something about it and had some lip injections. She might have also landed herself a new job in the process because the plastic surgeon’s office apparently told her that she could work there after she graduates as an externship. She would also be guaranteed one free surgery each year that she works there. The picture up above shows Jenelle’s lips after the injections.
3. Gannon has the flu
Mackenzie McKee posted on her Facebook page today that her family has had a rough week. Her brother had his tonsils out, and both Josh and her father have been sick. Sadly, this isn’t all the sickness that happened at the McKee household because Gannon tested positive for the flu. The flu going around in the Midwest this year is no joke, and there have been several reported cases where children who were vaccinated have actually died after coming down with influenza in the last couple of months. Here’s to hoping that everyone in their family makes a speedy recovery and is able to be back to normal as quickly as possible. (P.s. if you remember Mackenzie’s friend Cayla, she is currently pregnant with a baby boy that she’s naming Rowdy…yes…you read that correctly)
4. Autumn asks for help
So GoFundMe has been pretty popular lately for a crowd funding website and it actually works really well. (I mean, I got a Keurig and I really wasn’t expecting it. Seriously the best present ever and I wouldn’t make it through teaching without my daily dose of coffee before I walk out the door.) Several of the 16 & Pregnant ladies have taken to the website in order to get out stories and attempt to receive financial help in order to better address the needs of their families. Taylor Lumas asked for help regarding money after a surgery. Allie Mendoza asked for help buying a home. Cleondra Carter raised thousands in an attempt to gain back custody of her daughter. Now, season 5’s Autumn Crittendon is using GoFundMe to help raise money for heating and cooling for her family. Autumn’s post reads:
Hello my name is Autumn. You may have noticed me and my son on the Mtv show 16 andpregnant . I’m trying to raise money to help my family and I afford a heating/Cooling unit. The cost for a brand new unit is approximenatly $2000.00 and around $1000.00 to put it in. We are having a hard time paying bills and making ends meet and now we found out that the unit is broken. We cannot afford to have a new one put in. We are currently running a space heater and the heater every once in awhile. We have already tried to seal the windows to keep the cold out. Any donates would be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone.
If you feel compelled to donate to help Autumn’s family, the link to her GoFundMe page is right HERE. She’s currently raised a little over $100, so she has a long ways to go in order to reach her goal of $3500.
