I missed last week’s episode so here are two recaps in one.
Last week Chelsea continued to be a waste of space, except she actually left the house for once and went to a Lady Gaga concert with her two friends and stayed in a hotel for the night. All of which her dad paid for to reward her for working so hard while studying for school.
Adam moved out of Chelsea’s house and straight into another girl’s apartment. Apparently this girl never saw 16 & Pregnant because she doesn’t understand why Chelsea doesn’t want to let Adam take Aubrey for an entire weekend. Adam and the new girl discuss his child support payments. Adam does some math and realizes that over 18 years he will end up paying $52,000. He thinks that is incredibly unfair. The new girlfriend agrees and it looks like Adam finally found someone as stupid as he is to share his life with. I wonder if either of them ever thought about how much Chelsea’s dad is going to end up paying over those 18 years?
Adam then says what a shame it is that he doesn’t get to spend more time with Aubrey and how sad it is that he missed her first steps… as though it was someone else’s fault that he was hanging out with his friends instead of being a father for the last 9 months.I’m pretty sure Adam’s new found interest in his child is just an act he’s putting on for the new girl. We’ve watched nothing but episode after episode of Chelsea begging Adam to spend time with her and Aubrey. It never ceases to amaze me how some people can lie so brazenly while all their actions and words are being documented on national television, and how they still find people who will believe them.
Leah got cold feet about the wedding last week. At this point in the relationship a marriage is nothing but a piece of paper, they’re already living like a married couple so I say they should just go for it. I’m still not sure how I feel about Leah. I think having such a wonderful boyfriend and a sick child makes her look more sympathetic. But I still see her as that selfish girl who would rather hang out with her friends than stay home with Corey and the girls. I hate to say it, but I don’t think Leah feels the same about Corey as he feels about her. I think she needed support and someone to lean on during a difficult time in her life and that’s the only reason why she is with him.
It doesn’t appear as though there are any doctors where Leah lives because every time she takes Ali to an appointment she has to stay in a hotel. The doctor she saw this time was a nice woman who seemed to actually know what she was talking about. Leah asked her about the length of Ali’s arms and said that she didn’t see a problem, and that Ali’s too young to really tell at this point anyway.
They did some x-rays on Ali’s legs, and it looks like they are still leaning towards her problem being a genetic one. They won’t really know for sure whether or not Ali will be able to walk until she is 2 years old. So Leah still doesn’t have any concrete answers which means more waiting, more tests, and more worrying.
Kailyn finally got her stuff from Jo’s house, but not without drama and as much verbal abuse as Jo could possibly squeeze into the 5 minutes she was there. Janet disapproved of the way Jo spoke to her, but she wasn’t completely shocked or appalled at the words coming out of her son’s mouth. And she was totally ok with him slamming the door on Kailyn. I would be so ashamed if he were my son, and she basically co signs his behavior. Anyone else notice that when Jo went upstairs to get Kailyn’s stuff he opened his bedroom door with a key?
This week Kailyn had to drop some classes because she has too much on her plate with being a single mom and working two jobs. She decides, smartly, to put her and Jo’s custody arrangement in writing because Jo is an unpredictable asshole who might just run away to New Jersey with their child.
Since a written agreement is the mature, responsible thing to do, Jo is obviously going to have a big problem with it and cause drama when she asks him to sign the papers. Kailyn’s mom is suddenly very supportive of her daughter and concerned about her well being. I assume she is getting paid for her appearances on the show.
Janelle returned home after her New Jersey adventure with Kieffer and refused to give Barbra back her credit cards, or even apologize for taking them. As she explained, she only used them to buy gas and food so that should excuse the fact that she stole them. Of course Barbara kicked her out of the house… again. Barbara also sent back Janelle’s financial aid check, the one she was planning to use to get an apartment, so now she is homeless… again. Janelle is wrong and I can’t defend her, but Barbara raised her this way. When you grow up in a house where the punishment for spilling something on the couch is exactly the same as the punishment for credit card fraud, you’re going to turn out a little screwed up.
Barbara has to make a claim with the credit card company if she doesn’t want to be held responsible for the $700 Janelle charged. She gave Janelle an option to pay the money back, but Janelle doesn’t have any money. Barbra heads to her attorney’s office to discuss her options. He reminds her that if she presses charges against Janelle it will result in her having a criminal record which will make it more difficult for her to find employment in the future which will in turn only prolong the time until Janelle is able to take care of herself and Jace. So now Barbra has to decide if it’s worth it to try to recover the $700, or if doing so will end up costing her more in the long run.
On top of everything, Janelle lost her job because she didn’t show up to work for 2 days in a row and didn’t bother to call out… or answer the phone when her boss called. Kieffer ran out of free places to stay in the area and had to move an hour away to find a couch to sleep on. With Kieffer gone and Janelle’s only friend not answering the phone, Janelle has no choice but to spend the night in her car. Luckily Barbara calls and tells her she can come home. She even says that she will wait until the morning to scream at her. So Janelle is back in the house… at least for another day or two before she gets kicked out again.
Next week Leah and Corey have a wedding while everyone else has the same drama as always.
Jo is a rapper Yo! Unfortunately the comments are disabled on these videos. Too bad, because I bet there would have been some funny ones.
Is he doing coke or does he just have allergies? Why the hell is he touching his nose so much?
What Janelle beat the shit out of a girl. She could join the UFC with some of those moves.
How much do the Teen Mom’s really make?
