I’ll start with the human doormat just to get her whinny ass out of the way. She has a conversation with her dad about Adam and whether he is going to make an effort to take care of his family or just be a mooching bum for the rest of his life. She actually says that she doesn’t want Adam to have to get a job because she likes that he’s around all the time. She also doesn’t want him to be able to meet girls at work. She makes a point out of the fact that he already pays $300 a month in child support. Since she doesn’t actually pay for anything herself she doesn’t realize how little $300 is when it comes to providing for a child. She eventually agreed that she would tell Adam to get a job, but I suspect she said that just to satisfy her dad. I think her and Adam have every intention of mooching off of her father for as long as possible. It’s the same repetitive story every week. I don’t want to write about her anymore. Get off my tv screen you annoying girl!
It’s finally time for Ali’s MRI. They have to travel to another town to get the test done, so Corey takes off work and him, Leah, and Leah’s mom check into a hotel near the hospital. Corey is a strong guy and has a “everything will be fine” attitude. But when the doctors take Ali back to be sedated he breaks down and cries with Leah in the hospital hallway. I can’t even imagine what they’re going through and I don’t like this! I want my trashy reality shows to make my eyes roll, not tear. Moving on….
Kailyn started seeing Jordan again. She’s sneaking around behind Jo’s back, but she’s not a great liar and he knows something is going on. Jo’s mom sits down with Kailyn and tries to convince her that she needs to stay with Jo and work things out. It probably would have been a better idea for Janet to sit down with her son and tell him to stop being such a douche to the girl he supposedly loves instead of trying to convince Kailyn to stay with a guy who doesn’t treat her right. But I guess that’s not the way she operates.
Janet seems like the type of woman who likes to use force rather than reason, and when she see’s that Kailyn isn’t going to give in, she simply tells her that if she wants to date someone other than Jo then she will have to move out of their house. I actually don’t disagree with her on this rule. Kailyn dating Jordan (openly) while living in that house would cause all kinds of drama and Janet knows that. But it sucks for Kailyn to know that the only reason they are helping her is because of their son and grand child, not because they actually care about her.
Janelle and Kieffer have to move out of the house they’ve been squatting in because the people who own it are coming back. Janelle asks her mother if she and Kieffer can move in with her, and Barbra actually agreed which totally surprised me.
Obviously this situation ended in total disaster when Barbara finds Kieffer and Janelle smoking pot on the front porch. The front porch! And in front of the cameras! I’m rooting for Janelle and all, but she really needs to stop doing stupid shit like this. At least take a walk down the street or something!
So Barbra obviously blows a gasket and starts screaming, Kieffer was totally stoned and started laughing which caused Barbara to tell him he has to move out. I did love it when Barbra called him a “damn lying hustler“. Barbra and I finally agree on something! Kieffer actually had the balls to tell her “I get money… more than you think” while he’s homeless and living in her house for free! Barbara tells Janelle that even though Kieffer has to leave she can stay, but Janelle wants to go with Kieffer. Barbra totally surprised me when she followed Janelle into the room and tried to reason with her. She tells her that Kieffer is a loser and is dragging her down. She began to cry as she told her that she loves her and wants to see her do better. Wow. That was a really nice/normal moment there. Unfortunately, Barbra is a nasty cold hearted bitch the other 364 days of the year so her opinion doesn’t really mean that much to Janelle who just wants someone to hug her and tell her they love her. Kieffer gives her that, Barbara does not. So she left with Kieffer. I liked how Barbara looked at her and asked quietly “do you need therapy?“.
Uh… DUH. Of course she does! Anyone growing up in that house would! Barbra was such a different person this episode I wonder if maybe she isn’t an alcoholic and just happened to be sober this day.
Kieffer is totally blackmailing Janelle emotionally. He keeps telling her “well if we don’t figure something out I’m gonna have to move back to New Jersey” while making no attempts to get a job or make any money. He knows that she doesn’t want him to leave and that she’ll pay for everything and give him a free ride not to lose him. Scum bag.
Next week looks like it’s going to be good. I think we might finally get to find out what’s going on with Ali, Adam tells Chelsea he cheated on her 5 times (that week?), and Jo calls the mother of his child a whore then calls the cops on her.
