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

Now that MTV has confirmed the return of 75% of the original Teen Moms, it’s time that more filming details come forward from various sources about what will actually be featured on their 5th season.  This weekend, all of the Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 girls got together in New York City to film for a few specials that are coming up.  The Teen Mom 2 girls are taking part in a reunion special (some people sass when I call things reunions and not finales, but they’ve met before, so I’m going to consider this an actual reunion) which will air after this extended season has finished sometime this fall.  I don’t have any idea how many episodes of Teen Mom 2 are left, and that means I also don’t have a specific date that the reunion will air on, but I’ll keep you posted as more details come out.  Here are some picture of the Teen Mom 2 gang that have been shared so far from their weekend in NYC.

The Teen Mom girls are also in New York doing some group filming for a special called “Ask The Moms” which I would assume will air shortly after the Teen Mom 2 reunion special with Dr. Drew.  There have been some pictures posted that give us a better insight into what these specials will look like, and they seem to be different than most of the previous specials that we’ve seen.  In this picture, which Tyler Baltierra posted to Instagram, we see that Amber, Catelynn, and Maci are all together sitting outside being filmed.  Dr. Drew, who normally officiates these reunions and specials, isn’t shown anywhere, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be involved at all.

As always, if you see anything on Twitter that you want me to write about, just mention it in a tweet to @TeenMomJunkies and I’ll do my best to get something written up about it in a day or two.

Ok, so I know I posted about the Ice Bucket Challenge before, and you’re all sick of hearing about it, but it’s Friday and I needed a good person to make fun of, so it looks like we’re going to talk about Nathan Griffith’s failure of an Ice Bucket Challenge.

So, Nathan was nominated, and he decided that he could make things a little more interesting by completing the challenge in his underwear, which is pretty disgusting.  Nathan had a cooler filled with ice water, and he decided that he would do the challenge indoors in his bathroom.  He takes the cooler over his head and almost falls (darn, wish he would have) and then when he finally gets the water to where it’s supposed to go, he sits in the bathtub and splashes around.

I think the best part of his video might be the fact that he has to read his script from a piece of paper.  Seriously, it should be pretty simple for him to remember the basic format of this thing.  I could’ve helped him out.

Step 1: Hi my name is ________________

Step 2: I was nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by _________________

Step 3: I challenge ____________ and ____________ and _____________

Step 4: Dump water on your head

Step 5: Stop recording, and post it to Facebook

I guess there’s no better way to celebrate a Friday than watching a video of someone we all dislike making a fool of himself.

Holy poo, guys. This one got a little long, so just ignore whatever you don’t want to read, and comment your thoughts below.  I typed while I was watching, simply because I wanted you to have something to comment on while I’m at school tomorrow. (Thanks again for sticking with me while WE ALL figure this new schedule out! You’re the greatest!)

Jenelle

Jenelle, Barbara, and Nathan go out to lunch before heading to a meeting with an attorney.  Barbara pushes for having Nathan take his dog to a rehoming center, but Nathan says that will never happen.  They talk about how the attorney meeting will go, and hope that Courtland simply signs the divorce papers, but they’re pretty sure he’ll try and get alimony from Jenelle.

The three of them head to the lawyer’s and talk about how the divorce should go down.  They talk about the fact that Jenelle is super pregnant and that they’re all worried about Courtland having rights to the child when it’s born, but the lawyer calms everyone’s nerves by saying that it would only happen if Courtland wanted to claim that he was the dad of Jenelle’s unborn child.  They think it’ll only take around 30 days to finalize everything, which is a good thing since Jenelle is pretty close to having this baby.

Jenelle’s lawyer is filing the papers for the divorce, and they all head back to Barbara’s house.  Jace smashes crackers all over the floor, and Nathan handles the “discipline” for that situation I guess.  Nathan says he’s going to get a paternity test simply for legal rights, and that he does plan on proposing to Jenelle but doesn’t want to rush anything and he wants to make sure everything is perfect.  Barbara reveals that she went through a nasty divorce and doesn’t want Jenelle to go through it like she did, but Nathan admits that once he was divorced he didn’t plan on getting married again until he met Jenelle.

In a cute extra clip, Jenelle pushes Jace on the swing, and she and Barbara talk about the possibility of getting him a bigger swing set, which I think would be nice so he could get rid of some of that energy that he has built up.  Honestly, it was nice to see Jenelle play with Jace, because we really don’t see a lot of that.

Jenelle is trying to get some studying done while Nathan is at the gym, but her friend stops by.  Jenelle tells her friend about filing for a divorce, and her hopes that the divorce goes smoothly.  Jenelle says that she’s just going to get a paternity test done no matter what, and doesn’t seem too unhappy about it.  Jenelle says she wishes that she had never met Courtland, and that she regrets everything about her marriage.  She says she wants to marry Nathan, but that she’s not going to rush into a marriage like she did last time.

Leah

At the beginning of the episode, Ali goes to therapy with Corey’s dad in order to make sure that everyone knows what’s going on with Ali’s physical therapy and the wheelchair.  Jeff seems pretty happy about being able to see Ali with the wheelchair, and it’s nice for Leah to have a break for a bit.

Jeff brings Ali home from physical therapy and says that she did a great job.  He tells Leah all about how things went, and it’s good to see how these two can still have a relationship even though Leah and Corey’s marriage didn’t work out.  Jeff says that he’s happy that he was able to see Ali with the wheelchair because now he realizes that it’s simply to supplement Ali’s walking so she can conserve energy when she’s walking, and has energy to do other things like play at the playground.  Both Leah and Jeff seem to think that Corey is still in denial about how the wheelchair should work in Ali’s life.

Jeff goes back and talks to Corey about the situation and tries to explain to him that Ali simply uses the wheelchair as a novelty, but Corey is still insistent that he doesn’t want Ali to be dependent on the wheelchair at all.

Jeremy comes home for the weekend, so he and Leah head to his parent’s house.  Corey calls and lets Leah know that he’s going to take the girls to the zoo that weekend, and he’s planning on taking the wheelchair, which is a big step for him.  Leah says she’ll bring the wheelchair to the drop off, and asks about the insurance situation, but Corey says that nothing has really changed yet, but he’ll let her know if he hears anything about getting their real wheelchair.  Leah talks to Jeremy about the insurance thing, but they’re both really frustrated that they still have the loaner wheelchair and not the one Ali was fitted for.  Even though it’s a good thing that Corey is making an effort with the wheelchair now, they’re both mad that Corey hasn’t seen her in the chair before now.

Kailyn

Javi is still away in Texas for extra training, but Kailyn is able to FaceTime with him for a bit.  She says that Lincoln is having issues when he’s trying to latch on during breastfeeding, and it’s frustrating to her.  She says that Isaac has an art show that’s coming up and that Jo and Vee are planning on coming to see him and then see his place.  Kailyn also said that her mom is planning on coming to the art show, but that since she hasn’t talked to her mom in a long time, it could be awkward, especially since Jo and Vee will be there also.

Vee loses her nose ring, and MTV decides that it’s substantial enough to include in this episode.  Jo and Vee talk about how they’re surprised that Kailyn invited them to Isaac’s art show, but agree that it wasn’t too awkward.  They agree that Kailyn is making an effort to repair relationships with everyone, but hope that it’s not a big deal or dramatic when they’re all together.

Kailyn took Isaac home early from the art show since he was so tired, but Jo, Vee, and Suzi still come over even though Isaac is sleeping.  Suzi asks how things are going since Javi is gone.  Kailyn admits that things are a little crazy, but that she’ll make it through.  She gives them a tour of the house, and then Lincoln gets hungry, but he doesn’t want to latch on, and it makes things complicated.  Jo and Vee leave, after Kailyn thanks them for coming to support Isaac with things.  Seriously, I’m so happy that these people finally figured their shit out.

Suzi stays the night to help with Lincoln, and vents her frustrations about him not latching.  They seem like they’re doing better, but you can tell that things are tense.  Suzi is helping a lot with Lincoln, and that’s obviously helpful with the situation Kailyn is in.  Kailyn says that Javi is still learning about how to take care of a baby, but that he’s learning.  Suzi seems like she’s trying to be helpful, and even though I don’t know where they stand today, I’m sure the one day of help that was shown was a lot better than nothing.  Kailyn breaks down in tears at the end of the episode because Lincoln won’t latch on, and Suzi comes to the rescue to help take care of Lincoln so Kail can have a break.

Chelsea

Chelsea is officially a licensed esthetician so she’s able to go back to work.  Chelsea is excited that she has her own room set up at her work place, and has business cards.  Her work seems to be really flexible with things, so that’s always good since Chelsea is a single mom and can have things come up which would require a flexible schedule.

Chelsea’s mom stops by and we learn that Aubree is going to play softball, which is exciting for her.  Chelsea tells her mom about how the licensure is all figured out, and then they obviously talk about Adam, because that’s what happens.  Apparently Chelsea told Adam that Aubree had softball practice when he asked for the information, and Chelsea told Aubree that Adam would be there.  Sadly when Chelsea tried to call him, he didn’t answer and Aubree gets pretty upset that he didn’t answer his phone.  We get to see Aubree’s softball practice and it seems like she’s doing pretty well, but when Chelsea finally gets ahold of Adam, the practice is almost over, and it doesn’t look like he’ll make it in time to see Aubree at all.

Adam ends up showing up at the very end of practice, and Aubree is so excited to see him, but it really sucks that he was so late and didn’t get to see any of it.  Aubree tells Adam that he missed the whole thing, and it’s pretty sad that she’s so upset about it.  Chelsea asks him what he was doing, and he was simply sitting at home and sleeping and that people have to do things.  Seriously, Adam was there for like 3 minutes.

Chelsea calls her dad in the car and tells him about how Aubree did at softball practice.  She talks to Randy about it on speaker phone with Aubree in the car, and then Aubree tells Randy that her dad missed it all, but he reassures her that Adam will be there next week for her very first game.  They really need to figure out how to not talk about it right in front of Aubree.

It’s Whoopsie-Doo Wednesday (I can’t get over that) and the fact that Teen Mom 2 is the only thing I’m looking forward to tonight probably makes me pretty lame, but oh well.  Anyway, we’re posting a recap of an exclusive clip from OK! Magazine that will help viewers know what to expect tonight.  If for some reason you don’t want to have a sneak peek, just stop reading now. :)

jenelle2

In the clip, Jenelle, Nathan, and Barbara go to sit down with an attorney (I don’t think we’ve ever seen this guy before) to talk about Jenelle’s upcoming divorce from Courtland.  It turns out that since Jenelle is super pregnant at this point, she’s concerned with the fact that Courtland could potentially have rights to the child since the two are legally married.

jenelle3

The attorney walks them through the divorce process and states that they basically serve Courtland with the divorce papers, and that if for some reason he fights the divorce, they would simply bring up his multiple drug issues and felonies and such, which would help a judge understand where Jenelle is coming from in wanting the divorce.

The lawyer addresses Jenelle’s concern about Courtland having rights to her unborn child, and he simply states that since she’s legally married, the child would be presumed to be his.  The only way that this would be an issue would be if Courtland wanted to claim that the child was his, and then the three of them would have to do a paternity test.

Barbara wants to know how quickly they can get the divorce over with, and the attorney explains that Courtland is required to file an answer within 30 days of receiving his paperwork, and if he doesn’t, the divorce will go on without him.

If you haven’t watched the news or been on social media sites lately, you might not have heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  The challenge, which raises money for ALS research, basically requires an individual to dump a bucket of ice water on their head and then challenge friends to do the same.  This trend has taken social media by storm, and several celebrities have been involved in this trend as well.  Some of the Teen Mom family have officially taken part in the challenge, and they shared videos to help promote funding for ALS research.

First up is Kailyn Lowry.  She was challenged and completed the task, so she then passed the challenge on to Maci Bookout, Chelsea Houska, and Kendra Wilkinson.  Here’s a still from her Instagram video of the challenge:

Kailyn’s husband, Javi Marroquin, was also challenged by Maci Bookout’s boyfriend, and he completed the challenge as well.  He went on to challenge some of his friends and Kailyn’s son, Isaac Rivera.  Here’s a still from Javi’s ice bucket challenge:

Since Javi challenged Isaac, his turn was next.  Isaac also challenged some of his friends as well as Chelsea Houska’s daughter Aubree.  Here’s a still from Kailyn’s video of Isaac’s ice bucket challenge:

adam-lind-teen-mom-2

So I don’t know if I’ve really written about Adam being in jail 5 times before this, but it sure as hell feels like it. Anyway, Adam’s back behind bars according to Starcasm and he’s serving a ten day sentence.  This sentence is stemming from charges that occurred in March when Adam was caught driving with a revoked license.  He had a scheduled jail sentence, and booked himself in around 10 p.m. on August 10th, which means he’ll be out late on August 20th if all goes as planned.

Adam is still facing charges for his fiery crash which was featured on Teen Mom 2, and much like Randy said this week, since Adam chose to plead not guilty to those charges, he now faces a trial by jury and potential prison time if convicted.

Sources close to Starcasm and Radar Online have claimed that Chelsea is attempting to take visitation rights away from Adam due to his inability to follow their guidelines.  As we saw on Teen Mom 2, Aubree told Chelsea that Adam was driving her around, but changed her mind later and said that Taylor was actually the one driving.  While we’ve never seen Adam driving Aubree around in his segments, it wouldn’t seem like too far of a stretch for him to break their visitation agreement and drive without Chelsea knowing.
