Watching Chelsea and Adam communicate is difficult. It’s like watching two children playing house and pretending to be grown ups. Chelsea’s all like Adummm. Why-yaaa don’t you ever come home-aaaahhhh. I can’t believe no one in her life has ever pulled her aside and told her that she talks like a 5 year old. Megan, where are you? Adam doesn’t really want anything to do with Chelsea and only puts up with her to get a free place to sleep, eat, and play video games. He refers to their daughter as a turd, but I guess it’s a step up from “mistake”. Chelsea thinks that a trip to the local fair will fix the fact that he doesn’t love her. It didn’t work. First he refused to pay the $5 entrance fee so Chelsea had to buy his ticket for him. Then he waved to a girl he cheated on her with, so Chelsea got upset asked him to hold her hand so that she can show those skanks that he belongs to her. But giving Chelsea confidence or security would be counter productive to Adam’s manipulative agenda so he loudly and publicly refuses to hold her hand which leaves her feeling defeated and disrespected – exactly where he wants her.
Back at home Chelsea shares the fears she has about Adam cheating on her. Adam says that, duh, of course he cheats! Everyone does it. But he only cheated like 5 times total so it’s not that bad, plus it was really Chelsea’s fault, she totally made him do it. (I did notice that Chelsea didn’t deny it when Adam accused her of cheating too.)
The argument ends with
Chelsea throwing his deadbeat ass out on the street Adam walking out because he doesn’t want to be told that he can’t come home at 4am. I did feel a little bad for Chelsea as she sat on the couch scrunching her face and trying not to cry after he walked out, but girl needs to grow a back bone, and quick. Aubrey is watching and learning all of this.
Leah and Corey’s wedding day is a month away and she goes wedding dress shopping with her mom and Corey’s mom. You can tell that Corey’s mom spent the entire morning at the salon getting all done up for her tv appearance. She actually had her whole head blow dried instead of just the bangs like everyone else. But she is looking good for a granny! I’m guessing this is a whole family of teen parents. Leah tried on a bunch of dresses and I was surprised when she actually chose a really pretty one. I don’t know why I kinda expected her to wear jeans to her wedding.
Leah and Corey go back to see that awful doctor for Ali’s MRI results. The test showed that everything is fine and there is nothing wrong with her spine. That’s great news and they’re both relieved. But there is still a problem with Ali’s legs and Leah is obviously concerned about that. She tries to discuss this with the doctor but he brushes her off because babies aren’t supposed to be walking at 8 months old anyway.
He then takes the opportunity to tell them, yet again, that Ali’s arms are too short for her body while offering no diagnosis or solution, then wishes them good luck and walks out of the room leaving them confused and still needing answers. I want to smack this doctor! Who gave this guy a medical license? Leah is also fed up with his behavior and decides to get a second opinion. Good idea.
What is up with Kailyn and Jo always meeting in parking lots? Jo can’t seem to get it through his head that Kailyn doesn’t want to be his girlfriend and just wants to be friends and co parent together, so they are meeting to discuss their relationship again. Jo walks over to Kailyn and remarks on what a beautiful day it is outside, oh that was nice… but then he adds you don’t deserve to be outside enjoying the sun, you should be in a cave. Omg! What is wrong with this kid? So Kailyn (who has the worlds worst timing) decides to come clean about dating Jordan. Jo is seriously offended that she would actually date another person because he totally thought that having a child together meant he could treat her however he wanted and she would have no choice but to put up with it. Jo isn’t used to not getting what he wants when he wants it and has no idea how to handle this situation, so he resorts to tantrum throwing and name calling. He calls Kailyn a stupid whore and tells her that not only is she not allowed back at his (parents) house, but she isn’t even allowed on his block. That’s his turf, yo! Don’t you love it when kids who live in nice houses in the suburbs act all gangsta?Kailyn asks her mother if she can move in with her, and she agrees since the only other option is for Kailyn to sleep in her car. A couple days later Kailyn and her mom go over to Jo’s house to pick up the rest of her stuff. Kailyn waits in the car to avoid drama while her mom goes inside. Janet answers the door and I figured that the two mothers would be able to transfer Kailyn’s stuff with minimal drama. Nope. Janet says it’s up to Jo, and when he refuses to give her stuff back until she pays back the $600 he lent her for school, she totally backs him up. Now I know where Jo gets his awful behavior from, his mother is just as bad as he is. Geez, the girl is working two jobs and going to school to try to make a life and a future for HIS child, the least he can do is let her have some of her clothes and her hair brush. Since Jo and his mom are total douche bags, Kailyn’s mom decides that this is a case for the proper authorities.
The cops finally arrive and are entirely unhelpful. They even give Jo a little tip that he can keep Issac from her since they don’t have any legal custody agreement. Thanks officer. I understand if the cops can’t force him to do anything, but they could have at least strongly encouraged it.
Barbara must have completed AA or something because she’s been an entirely different person for two whole episodes now. Her and Janelle actually have a mature talk and they managed to get through the entire conversation with neither one raising their voices. They agree to show more respect to each other, and while they didn’t get as far as hugging, they did shake hands which is a huge improvement from pushing and spitting.
I love how Janelle calls it “baby sitting” when she watches Jace. It’s not babysitting when he’s your son, Janelle! She decided to continue living at her moms to be near Jace even though Kieffer isn’t allowed stay there anymore. That was a smart decision, and she’s actually been doing good. She’s going to school, working, “babysitting” her son, and actually getting along with Barbara. She even got away with taking Jace to the store for a minute without being kicked out of the house or arrested for kidnapping.
But after not seeing Kieffer for a few days she misses him and goes to meet him by the vacation house he’s been squatting in. After spending 5 minutes with him she’s packing her bags, calling out of work, and heading to New Jersey with her mom’s stolen credit card. I really want to be on Janelle’s side, but it’s becoming more and more difficult to stick up for this girl.
Next week Jo is still mean, Chelsea is still a doormat, Leah gets cold feet about the wedding, and Janelle commits credit card fraud.
