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

Alright, so it hasn’t been a week since I posted one of these, but there’s been a few smaller things that happened, and I’m putting them into one post.

1. Leah cuts her hair

thisweek1

Leah enrolled in cosmetology school, and sometimes when people join, they go all crazy with their hair.  I’m not one to judge, and it’s hair so whatever works for them.  Leah seems to have fallen into this category, as she just chopped a ton of her hair off.  We’ve always seen her on Teen Mom 2 with longer blonde hair, so this short hair style seems a little out of the ordinary.  I personally like it (well what I can see of it) and I think it makes her look more mature.

2. Jenelle is finally divorced

thisweek2

Jenelle filed for divorce from Courtland Rogers last month, and now she’s finally divorced.  She posted an article to her website, Teen Mom Truth, and shared some pictures of some legal documents.  The article stated that Courtland currently has a warrant out for his arrest, so he didn’t show up for court.  He apparently also didn’t get any of Jenelle’s assets during the divorce.  Now that things are final, Jenelle can proceed to pop out a baby sometime in the next couple of weeks, and be on her merry way with Nathan.

3. Nikkole Paulun is engaged

Nikkole and boyfriend, Ryan Rice, haven’t even been together for a year yet, but they’re engaged and planning on getting married in some sort of a destination wedding in four months.  Since the former 16 & Pregnant star announced the news, she’s been spamming Sulia and Facebook with pictures of centerpieces for weddings, and other various wedding related things.  Nikkole was previously engaged to Lyle’s father, Josh Drummonds, who is currently incarcerated.

4. Mackenzie doesn’t like 16 & Pregnant

Starcasm has been doing interviews with the girls of Teen Mom 3, and this week they focused in on Mackenzie.  She had some interesting comments during her interview, but the one that struck me was her response to, “What do you think about MTV’s decision to continue with their 16 & Pregnant docuseries?”  Mackenzie’s answer was short, but you can tell it holds a lot of resentment.  She said, “I’d be lying if I said I agree on them continuing to do 16 & Pregnant.”  Mackenzie also said that she does not regret her time with MTV and hopes that in the near future she can make something of herself in the near future.

Mackenzie McKee is probably the most well known girl from her Teen Mom spinoff, so it’s no surprise that she’s using her notoriety to try and gain followers on social media.  Mackenzie has opened an Etsy store, called Mackenzies Makings, where she sells crochet baby items, wooden picture frames, and fabric headbands.  Mackenzie is also attempting to take her fan base from the show and transfer it to a YouTube channel where she’s planning on making workout videos, diabetes awareness videos, and answer fan questions.

Mackenzie posted her first video to the channel last night.  The video, which is up above, answers five questions that Mackenzie picked out of fan submissions that she had asked for on Twitter.  Some of the questions that she answers relate to her children’s names, diabetes, working out, and what she and Josh are doing now that their show is over.

Mackenzie is not the first girl from the Teen Mom franchise to start a YouTube channel.  Jenelle has a channel where she used to post videos quite frequently, and Farrah attempted to start a workout channel at one point.  Mackenzie also had a health and fitness blog where she would post her daily workouts, but she hasn’t kept up with the site, and no longer promotes it.

1. Is Mackenzie McKee pregnant again?

mackenzie1

Teen Mom 3 star, Mackenzie McKee caused an uproar on Twitter when she shared the following message with her followers a couple of days ago.

Most people took this as a backwards pregnancy announcement, and started asking Mackenzie when she was due or scolding her for being foolish enough to think that breast feeding made you completely unable to get pregnant.  Mackenzie just gave birth to her daughter, Jaxie Taylor, in February, and has proclaimed that she’s a brittle diabetic.  If Mackenzie is really pregnant again, she’s going to be in for a crazy adventure.  I couldn’t imagine having kids that close together, all the while still being a teenager.

Mackenzie did take to Twitter to respond to a fan saying that she isn’t expecting her third child, but what I’m more concerned about is the fact that this girl obviously still hasn’t figured out methods of birth control.  I wouldn’t put it past her to rely solely on breast feeding, and end up pregnant again within the next year.

2. Kailyn’s book is released

Kailyn_Lowry_Pride_Over_Pity_book_cover

I bought it for my Kindle this morning, and it’s full of information that I really wasn’t expecting.  Between living in a homeless shelter, her relationship with Jo and other previous boyfriends, marriage issues, and the whole rape and abortion scandal that I posted about earlier, it’s really kind of heart breaking to read.  I’m not finished with the book yet, but I’ll be posting a review for everyone within the next few days.  I know there are mixed feelings about the content of the book, so I’ll try to remain as unbiased as I can throughout it.  Are any of you reading it too?  Let me know what you think!

3. Maci’s newest blog post is about labor and delivery

maci-bookout-teen-mom-twitter

Maci’s been on this kick of writing blog posts about some topics that interest her.  This one focuses around the fact that since she’s getting older, lot of her friends are getting engaged or are pregnant.  Apparently when they end up pregnant, they ask her for advice on what to expect since she already has a kid and has gone through labor and delivery and all that fun stuff once already.  Maci writes about how she was only 16 when she had a kid, so she probably wasn’t the most prepared for any of it.  She also writes about  how the baby isn’t the only one wearing diapers after delivery, and the moment you find out what your boobs are for.  This was probably my least favorite blog post that she’s written, but feel free to check it out here!

Hey there!  I haven’t been posting as much lately because I’ve been super busy with school projects, personal life, and planning a 3 year old’s birthday, so I’m putting a few more recent stories into this post to give you something to comment on for the next day or so until I can get things back to normal.  Thanks for all of your comments.  They always provide me with a good laugh on my study breaks!

1. Mackenzie McKee is selling other people’s products

Mackenzie-Douthit-teen-mom-3

There have been a lot of people chatting about this one, so I’ll write something up so that you guys can all comment on it.  So, Mackenzie has an etsy shop called “Mackenzies Makings” where she sells things like picture frames, wooden crosses, and crochet baby items.  Her store gets a decent amount of business for what is has to offer, and I would say the main reason is because she’s seen as a public figure, and she’s promoting the crap out of her store on her social media accounts.  Some people started saying that she was jacking the pictures from her store from someone else’s store, so I started checking into it, and I’ll admit that the products that are shown aren’t hers.  She’s using stock photos and editing names and faces out of them to make it seem like they’re her own pictures, when in reality she’s taking them from someone else’s store or a website on the internet.  Here’s a screen shot of some of the things she’s selling.

I’ll give you a hint.  There are three very photos that are very obviously not hers.  These would be the last three pictures in the top row.  You can see that Mackenzie blurred out the face on one baby, and also removed the original shop name from the baby sized cowboy boots picture.  I will say that this doesn’t necessarily mean that Mackenzie can’t make the items.  She has posted some photos of her work on her Twitter account, and she’s also gotten good reviews on pretty much everything she’s sold.  This doesn’t mean that using the photos is right, but I would say that she probably makes the items and has a pattern for them, but the photos she’s posting are not her original work.  To some, that’s stealing, and if the images are copyrighted, that could put miss McKee into some legal trouble if she ends up messing with the wrong people.

2. Aleah Lebeouf gets a tattoo

aleah1

So I know that some of you hate hearing about the new 16 & Pregnant girls before their episodes air, and if that’s you, then just skip to #3.

Aleah will be featured on the upcoming season of 16 & Pregnant, and her story is unlike any other that we’ve seen so far.  Aleah is dating a guy named Shawn.  Shawn has a son named Noah, who is almost 4 years old.  Aleah has been playing the role of step-mom since Noah was very young, and when she became pregnant, she didn’t treat this child any differently than she treated Noah.  Well, the girls that are confirmed for the next season have ask.fm accounts where they reply to questions and comments from people who basically pry for information.  Aleah was asked by a fan if she was ever worried about what would happen if she and Shawn broke up, since Aleah has been so close to Noah.  Aleah’s response was pretty shocking for me, but maybe it won’t be as big of a deal to you.  The response might be a little small, so I’ll type it up here too “Now that Peyton’s here — I will always be a part of Noah’s life.  He is my daughter’s brother & Shawn wouldn’t keep him from me.  Noah would be devastated if I wasn’t able to see him everyday.  That’s why I had no problem getting Noah’s name tattooed on me.  I’ve been around since before he could walk & I’ll stay around for him until I die.  Noah is just as much my child as Pey.”

These 16 & Pregnant relationships don’t have a very good rap sheet so far, and the chances of a teenage mother marrying the father of her child is around 10%.  While I don’t wish a break up on these two by any means, I do worry about the chances of a marriage happening.  Aleah and Shawn are both still extremely young, and even though Aleah is the oldest confirmed girl for the season at 18 years old, she’s still barely legal.  If a break up was going to happen, Aleah is now permanently branded with the footprint and name of a child that she legally has no rights to, and probably won’t see much.  Opinions?  Maybe I’m overreacting on this one.

3. Adam Lind and Taylor Halbur break up

adam taylor

A month after the two exchanged promise rings, it seems that Taylor has dumped Adam because of how immature he is.  Lots of places have reported on this so far, but apparently two of Taylor’s friends reported that the two broke up because Adam failed to grow up after the birth of his second child.  Adam and Taylor broke up a few weeks after their daughter, Paislee, was born, and Chelsea Houska even revealed that the two were simply putting on a show to try and look good for the Teen Mom 2 viewers.  Since MTV is still filming, there’s a chance that we’ll get to see this break up happen on our screens during season 5b, but we’ll have to wait and see.  I can’t say that I’m surprised that the two aren’t together any more.  It’ll be interesting to see if Adam and Taylor have a better co-parenting relationship than Adam and Chelsea, and what the dynamic between Aubree and Paislee ends up being as they grow up.

Teen Mom 3′s Mackenzie McKee has always been pretty intent on maintaining a fit body, and it appears that even after having two children, her body is looking just as good as it was before she was pregnant.

Here’s the deal, Mackenzie had her second child, a daughter named Jaxie, on February 7th.  That was a little over two weeks ago.  The photo on the left is from the night before Jaxie was born, and the photo on the right is how she looks only two weeks after having her daughter.

Mackenzie posted the side-by-side comparison on her Instagram page yesterday, and also made a point to note that she has lost all of her muscle tone, but that her doctor gave her the green light to start working out again.  Mackenzie had a C-section, which is considered to be major surgery, just two weeks ago, and she’s already back to working on her abs.

On Mackenzie’s 16 & Pregnant episode, we saw her return to tumbling just 6 weeks after Gannon was born.  It seems that she’s pushing her limits a little bit with the recovery time for this pregnancy.  Last week, Mackenzie shared that she was confused why it hurt to do a cartwheel, and later realized it was because she had been cut open just a week before.

mackenziebody2

Basically every website that I’ve looked at says that you should wait at least 6 to 8 weeks after a C-section to start exercising, especially your abdominal muscles, and I even saw one place that said you should try to avoid taking the stairs for nearly two weeks after a surgery like this.  We do know that Mackenzie has had some skeptical medical advice in the past, so I’m wondering if the same person who told her to start working on her abs, is also the person who told her that she wouldn’t be able to have kids past the age of 21.

What are your thoughts on Mackenzie working out so soon after giving birth?

Radar Online posted a story earlier today about a break in at Mackenzie and Josh’s home.  The source in the article, who is close to the couple, said that someone broke into the McKee’s home and stole virtually all of the couple’s belongings while they were at a rodeo a couple of hours away.

Mackenzie and Josh McKee were at the rodeo when these people broke in and stole SO MUCH of their stuff.  They got everything, including all of the new baby’s clothes, and a swing and high chair.  They took Christmas presents that they’d received and even some of Josh’s hunting gear.  Everyone is worried that it is someone that knew Mackenzie or knew they were moving and so they watched the house to see when they left.  Josh was working at the rodeo in Kellyville, Oklahoma, which is two hours away, so they were gone for at least six hours.  No one was hurt so that’s the most important thing, but they literally took everything they needed.  It’s a horrible violation.

The article also said that since Josh and Mackenzie are moving, all of their things were packed and put in boxes, which would have made it much easier to pick up so much stuff in such a short amount of time.  Mackenzie and her family have remained relatively quiet about the situation, but Angie, Mackenzie’s mother, did mention on Twitter that they are going to be moving the remainder of the things into a storage unit and that they’ve filed a police report.  Angie also shared the following message on her Facebook page, which gives a better insight into exactly what was stolen from the home.
