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

If you’re a long time reader to Teen Mom Junkies, you’d know I haven’t been able to post in awhile. Megan has been doing a phenomenal job while I work on other stuff. I don’t know if she mentioned it for the first clip, but I was able to strike a deal with OK Magazine where they send us an exclusive clip of Teen Mom 2 before it airs.  The best celebrity / reality show gossip magazine teamed up with the best Teen Mom blog.  Not since the Dream Team has a collaboration been so powerful, especially considering they also work with me on my Big Brother posts. Watch out world, we’re taking over the Internet!

Enough about us, it’s time to talk about the clip. Last I personally remember of Kailyn and Vee (Jo’s gas mask girlfriend), they did not get along – at all.  In fact, Kailyn was quite rude about the situation especially considering she has had a few men in and out of her life since Jo. She (Kailyn) had a real problem with Vee being a parent type of figure to Isaac, so she freaked out on Jo whenever she could.  It was quite ridiculous and embarrassing to watch actually.

Well, like I’ve always said before, I’m fair when they deserve it, and it’s very clear Kailyn has grown up a bit. In this exclusive clip, she is talking to Jo and extending the olive branch out to his girlfriend. It is good to see because having hatred or even tension between parents and step-parents is really no good for anyone.  I know this first hand as a step-father, and my main goal is to never show any hatred or animosity toward my step-daughter’s father. As you get older, you learn taking the high road is often the hardest to take, but it’s also the right path.  It’s very good to see Kailyn is learning this and hopefully she’ll continue to have as good of a relationship as she can have with Jo and Vee.

Here is a direct link to the video if for some reason you can’t view it here.  Remember, visit OK Magazine and support them over the other gossip mags. They’re the awesome ones willing to work with us, so make sure to show your appreciation to them!

PS – Megan is away at some concert. I have someone who is supposed to write up a recap of the episode tonight. We’ll see how she does, and if good, she’ll be able to fill any gaps Megan is too busy for.

Farrah Abraham has been known to comment on her fellow Teen Mom girls’ life choices, and one of her recent comments was made about Jenelle Evans’ choice to have another child with her boyfriend, Nathan Griffith.  Farrah was asked in an interview about the situation and she basically said that she would never imagine getting a boyfriend, getting pregnant, and having a baby so quickly without having some sort of a plan in place.  Obviously Jenelle didn’t let this slide and made a comment on social media about how she was waiting for Farrah (who she referred to as “Miss Pornstar”) to comment on the situation and that she didn’t care what Farrah had to say.

Normally a few fans of each girl will chime in saying how stupid the other one is, but this time a different reality star on a completely different network decided to chime in and add her two cents in the situation.

Sabrina High, an ex-Mennonite from the reality series Breaking Amish, took to Twitter to address the issues going on in the Teen Mom world.  Here’s the tweet that Sabrina shared with fans.

Sabrina says that she and Farrah have not had previous issues, but that if it wasn’t for an unplanned pregnancy, Farrah never would have been on television and she wouldn’t be where she is today.

Also, just a heads up to you guys, I’ll be out of town for a few days, but I’ll be back home on Sunday night.  I recently got engaged and this weekend I’m doing some wedding planning with friends as well as going to a concert.  It’s the only toddler-free weekend I’m having this summer and I’m pretty excited to have some free time.  I think we’ve got everything set up to have a guest writer do the recap of Teen Mom 2 this week, so you’ll still have something to comment on while I’m away.

Guys, there’s been so much Teen Mom stuff going on lately, and I’m sure I’m missing a good chunk of it, but this one just makes me laugh so I’m posting about it anyway.

So we all know that Jenelle has a history of marijuana use, and we’ve all heard the speculations that she smoked throughout her entire pregnancy with Kaiser.  While she’s denied all of these accusations, and Nathan is reportedly strongly against marijuana usage, people have still been quick to jump on her case about it.  Pretty much any time Jenelle posts a picture online people are claiming that there’s a bong or a grinder or some other form of drug paraphernalia in the picture, and normally there’s really no way to tell if it’s legitimate or not.

During last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, some random people on Twitter started commenting that there was a bong and grinder in the scene where Jenelle is getting ready in the bathroom before heading out to the ultrasound appointment with Nathan where they find out that Jenelle is having a son.  Screenshots started being shared, and I’ll say that this one seems to be pretty legit.

Here’s the still from the episode that started it all.

On the bottom of the picture, you see a black thing, which people think looks an awful lot like a bong.  You can also tell that Jenelle is obviously pregnant.  Here’s a closer view of the object in question.

People were quick to defend Jenelle, but then some Twitter sleuths decided to hop online and find some pictures that Nathan had sent to a girl that he allegedly cheated on Jenelle with a few months ago.  If you can get past the fact that Nathan is in his underwear (because nobody probably wants to see that) you’ll see that there’s a bong and a lighter in the picture.  The bong in those pictures seems to match the bong in last night’s episode.

jenelle3I’ll be the first to say that I really don’t care if a person smokes marijuana, and I realize that in the United States, it will probably be legal within the next decade.  The taxes from legalizing marijuana in Colorado have helped to fund schools, and there in my state they’ve legalized the medicinal use of Cannabis oil.  I’m not opposed to it.  I will say that in the Carolinas, smoking marijuana is still illegal, which still makes it wrong in my book no matter how you look at it, and especially wrong if you’re on probation and trying to straighten your life out.  Take into account that Jenelle is carrying a baby at this time, and you’re setting yourself up for disastrous things to happen.  Then go ahead and blast in on national television to millions of viewers each week, and there’s really no telling what will happen.  At least put that shit away when MTV’s cameras are following you.

Kailyn revealed to OK! Magazine that she will be joining a celebrity panel for MTV’s newest campaign called “Look Different”.  The newest adventure with Look Different is something that seems to be a natural move for her considering the campaign’s goal is to empower teens and young adults to better handle the biases that we all face because of race, religious, sexual orientation.

Kailyn has been pretty outspoken about her thoughts that people should be loved no matter what shape or size they are, and she took place in a photo shoot for a “Beauty is Sizeless” campaign which received a lot of attention.

She’s also stood up for equality by participating in the “NOH8″ campaign and posing for pictures with her son Isaac, as well as other members of the Teen Mom family.

Kailyn was asked what sparked her interest in “Look Different” and her response seemed pretty straight forward.  She said:

After seeing racism first hand being in an interracial marriage, I have made it a personal mission to make everybody equal no matter their size, shape, color or creed. I have tried to bring awareness to equality and would like to continue to make noise in an effort to erase racism/sexism and anything else ‘Look Different’ fights for. Whether we look different or love different, we’re all people

Kailyn continues to be an activist for equality, and this newest position is something that will help her spread a message that she’s passionate about even more.

Kailyn will be joined on the panel by other celebrities from MTV including Jack Antonoff, Ari Fitz from The Real World: Ex-Plosion, Tanisha Long from Girl Code, and many more.

So as you all know, Jenelle gave birth to her son, Kaiser, on June 29th, and yesterday with the premiere of Teen Mom 2′s newest season, also came the debut of Kaiser’s pictures.  MTV controls the publicity for these girls, and they try their best to make sure that a big magazine gets the first official pictures of the newest MTV babies.

OK! Magazine was blessed with an interview and pictures of Kaiser.  The interview wasn’t held with the new mother, and was instead with Kaiser’s father, Nathan Griffith.  Nathan was asked a variety of questions, and even though most of his answers seemed pretty normal, there was on response that really set off some readers, including myself.

Nathan was asked why Jenelle’s mother, Barbara, wasn’t included in any of the pictures that were given to the magazine.  His response was, “We definitely have our differences. I want custody of Jace. He listens to me, and I’m a good role model for him. She just yells at him. I look at him as one of my kids, so I want him in a more structured and understanding home. When he’s with Barbara, it gives me an unsettled feeling in my stomach. I love her and I respect her, but she hasn’t grown up yet—and I don’t like that.”  Nathan also said that viewers would see more of their tumultuous relationship on this season of Teen Mom 2.

Here’s the thing that gets me.  Barbara has raised Jace on her own for practically his whole life.  Jenelle willingly gave away custody of her son, and Nathan doesn’t have custody of his first child either.  While it sounds like a great idea to try and get custody of the kids back, nowhere in this statement does it even talk about Jenelle wanting custody of her child, but instead says that Nathan plans to try and get custody.  Another thing is that these two aren’t even engaged, and the only serious commitment that they have to each other is the fact that they’ve got a kid together.

We could also talk about his ability to be a good role model by reminding everyone that he’s accumulated 3 DUI’s, his girlfriend has admitted that he’s got PTSD, and we’ve seen him yell just about as much as Barbara throughout the last season of this show.  Don’t forget those abuse accusations that were floating around in January.

Jenelle

Jenelle is around 23 weeks pregnant and even though things were rough at the beginning of her pregnancy, things seem to be going better in her relationship with Nathan.  She’s still legally married to Courtland, and admits that by law they have to stay separated for a year before they can officially get the divorce.  Jenelle and Nathan had both been arrested recently, and despite their pending charges, they’re trying to have some quality time together, so they go find out whether they’re having a boy or a girl. Jenelle wants a girl and Nathan wants a boy, so when the sonographer says that they’re going to be welcoming a son into their lives, Nathan is overly excited.  Even though it isn’t what Jenelle wanted, she still seems genuinely happy at the appointment.

They head to Barbara’s house to see Jace and let her family know that they’re having a boy.  They let everyone know that they’re planning on naming the baby Kaiser, and Jace seems pretty excited about all of it.  Barbara asks about their pending charges, and Jenelle basically says that she’s going to have to learn to deal with it no matter what happens.  Nathan says that he doesn’t want to go to jail or miss out on time with “another one of his childs” because of these charges.

Later, Jenelle and Nathan meet with their attorney and discuss how things are going to be handled.  Jenelle will be getting out of the probation violation, but Nathan doesn’t seem to be getting off that easy.  The attorney tells him that he should plea to the minor charges in order to get the felony released, and that it’s a mandatory 30 day jail sentence.  Nathan says he’s fine with all of the charges except for resisting arrest, and the attorney tells him that she’s watched the video a number of times and thinks he was being totally out of line.  She then mentions that people don’t get a 3rd DUI unless they have a drinking problem, and that he needs to figure his stuff out before that baby comes because he has too much to be happy for to be throwing his life away.

Leah

Jeremy takes a job in Ohio, which is only 2 hours away.  This means that he’s planning on being home more to help with the kids and support Leah.  Before he leaves, he joins Leah and Adalynn in the crib for a goodbye talk.  Honestly, do people really do that?  There were two adults and a child in the crib.

Anyway, Jeremy leaves and things seem to go well for the three of them.  Then Leah has to go pick up the girls from Corey’s house for the weekend.  The girls are all sorts of confused with Adalynn doesn’t call Corey “daddy” and Leah laughs about it but realizes that it’s a normal part of how things are going to be since their kids are growing up in a mixed family.  Corey then tells Leah that Ali said she wasn’t strong because of her muscular dystrophy and Leah gets really upset realizing that Ali is more aware than she thought.

Corey and Miranda talk about how Leah is so open with the muscular dystrophy in front of Ali.  They don’t like that Leah talks about Ali needing a wheelchair because they don’t want Ali to become dependent on it.  Leah goes out to lunch with her mom and talks about how she felt like Corey was blaming her for Ali’s knowledge of her condition, but when she asks Ali who told her about the muscular dystrophy, Ali says she remembers it from seeing Dr. Tsao.  Leah reassures her that she can do anything she wants to do, regardless of her condition.

Chelsea

Chelsea recently bought a house, but can’t move in for a few more weeks, so she’s staying with her dad for the time being. Chelsea sits down with her dad to talk about Adam’s car accident, but is frustrated that she has no idea what even happened in the situation and doesn’t know what Aubree is aware of, but knows that she’s heard bits and pieces from Adam.  Chelsea’s dad stresses the importance of Aubree staying out of the car when Adam is driving, and talks about the disappointment Aubree will feel when she gets older because of Adam’s actions.

We see more of Adam during this episode, which is an interesting twist.  Adam basically says that the media made everything out to be his fault, when in reality he didn’t hit the elderly couple in the car crash, and they actually ran a red light and hit him.  I don’t believe any of that because there’s police reports and eye witness accounts of the crash all over, but it’s good to let him explain himself I guess.

Later, while Chelsea is waiting on her scores from her board exams, she receives a letter saying that her aestheticians license is being withheld due to the fact that she might have broken some laws.  She immediately calls her friend Landon, and explains the situation, which is essentially that someone saw online that Chelsea helped with makeup for a wedding and assumed that she was paid for it, which is illegal because she wasn’t licensed as an aesthetician.  Chelsea and Landon claim that there wasn’t any money that traded hands and that they were simply trying to get experience.

Kailyn

Jo comes over to get Isaac and Isaac is sad because he doesn’t want to leave his mom and Javi.  Eventually he goes with Jo after some reassurance from Kailyn that he will have fun and that he’ll come back soon enough.  Things have been tense for Kailyn and Javi since welcoming baby Lincoln into their family.  Kailyn is feeling trapped in the house and Javi doesn’t appear to help as much as she thought he would.  Javi is concerned with the fact that he’s not getting to spend as much time with Isaac, and seems like he doesn’t know what to do with a baby.

Kailyn’s friend, Peach, comes over to talk about things and Kailyn opens up that she’s so sick of being in the house all the time, and that Javi doesn’t watch both kids at the same time which means that Kailyn is always the one with the kids.  She says that they’re fighting about things that shouldn’t really be big issues, but realizes that Javi probably has to adjust to being around a baby since he’s been around Isaac as a toddler.

When Isaac comes home, things get heated because Kailyn needs to go grocery shopping.  (Yes, they are arguing about grocery shopping.)  Kailyn thinks she should be able to bathe both kids, feed Lincoln, and then go grocery shopping alone, while Javi wants to spend time with Isaac, so he suggests that Kailyn takes Lincoln shopping and he’ll stay home with Isaac.  Kailyn says that it’s not a compromise and then Javi thinks that everything is always on Kailyn’s terms, and it’s just a stupid argument that looks even more ridiculous because it’s caught on camera and displayed on national television.

Javi and Kailyn avoid each other for a while, but eventually sit down to talk about their problems.  While neither of them can really get out why they’re so upset, it’s pretty clear that they’re both willing to work on things.  Kailyn starts crying, and Isaac comes downstairs so she quickly tries to put a smile on.  Isaac closes the episode by letting everyone know that he loves them all.  Seriously, that kid is too sweet.
