“16 and Pregnant” Star Nikkole Paulun Gets Worst Tattoo in Franchise History

16 and pregnant season 2

I just…can’t….

Seriously, The Ashley couldn’t even make something like this up. The Ashley loves bad tattoos, but this story really takes the cake. (Be sure to follow The Ashley on Twitter– every Friday is #BadTattooFriday on her feed!)

Anyway, the girls of 16 and Pregnant are known for getting some pretty awful-looking tattoos, but Season 2 star Nikkole Paulun‘s new ink takes the prize for worst tattoo ever placed on a ’16 and Pregnant’ star’s body.

“16 and Pregnant” Season 5 Recap: Millina & Her Crew of Crazy Adults

"So...this sucks..."

“So…this sucks…”

Howdy kiddies! It’s time to venture back into the world of underage pregnancy. However, before we get started, The Ashley must give you fair warning: this recap will probably not be filled with The Ashley’s usual dose of piss, vinegar and snarky jokes about the people featured on this episode. The Ashley feels bad for the girl featured tonight. Her mom’s in jail, she’s knocked up and she appears to be surrounded by batsh*t crazy people. (It sounds a lot like Catelynn Lowell‘s episode of ’16 and Pregnant’ back in Season 1, actually. But at least we had Catelynn’s stepdad Butch to marvel at. However, if someone in this episode has a mullet, all bets are off!)

Let’s get started, shall we?

“You don’t happen to have 10 bucks I can borrow, do you?”

Today we meet Millina, a girl from Michigan who’s got a drug-addicted mom (who, might I say, looks like the party pal of Catelynn’s mom April?) who has been in and out of the slammer for the last five years. She does, however, have a “fun dad” who, for some God forsaken reason is still sporting the same haircut worn by the middle Hanson brother in the 1990s. He is described as flaky, which probably means that he’s good for the occasional “pull my finger” joke but not a whole lot more.

“16 and Pregnant” Season 5 Star Millina Kacmar Answers Fans’ Questions About Her Episode

"Lemme tell you how it really is around here!"

“Lemme tell you how it really is around here!”

The most recent episode of 16 and Pregnant focused on Millina Kacmar, a Michigan girl who dropped out of high school to get her “rave on.” However, the partying stopped once she got pregnant by her boyfriend, Trevor. Millina’s episode dealt with a lot of heavy issues. In addition to being 16 and pregnant, Millina had little support from the adults in her life: her own mother was in jail during her pregnancy, her father was unstable and flaky and Trevor’s mother, Tina, suffers from a medical condition that causes her to have unexpected seizures.

Anyway, after the episode aired, viewers questioned some of the decisions that Millina made. To help the show’s fans understand why she did the things that she did, she took to her YouTube channel, uploading a video in which she answered viewers’ frequently asked questions.

The Ashley spoke with Millina to get an update on her life since the episode taped. Her mother is now clean, in rehab and recently met baby Kayden for the first time.

Millina said her life has also changed a great deal since the cameras left.

“I need a smoke break after all this baby holdin’!”

Matching camo outfits. Taking drug tests in a fast food restaurant bathroom. Deciding whether to buy diapers or pot. From what The Ashley has heard about the latest episode of 16 and Pregnant, it’s got all the makings for the best recap ever! Let’s not wait another moment to get this hick parade started!

16 and pregnant

“It’s not everyday you find a mattress this fine behind the grocery store!”

On this episode of ’16 and Pregnant,’ we meet Autumn, a Richmond, Virginia, girl that loves to party. (And by ‘party,’ she means she likes to go on down to Bubba’s daddy’s backyard and drink Natty Ice while her guy friends are fixin’ to light stuff on fire.) Autumn also enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, Dustin.

“16 and Pregnant Recap: Maddy’s Never-Ending One-Night Stand

Two pumps and you're stuck parenting with a chump for 18 years.

Two pumps and you’re stuck parenting with a chump for 18 years.

Spring has sprung, and there is Pitocin in the air which can only mean one thing: a brand new season of 16 and Pregnant! We’ve waited a long time for this trainwreck-of-a-show to come back into our lives, and, over the past five months The Ashley worked tirelessly to introduce you to the girls that were cast on Season 5. One of the first girls she told you about was Maddy, whose episode we will discuss here.

The Ashley’s previous posts about Maddy will tell you a lot about her and her episode that MTV didn’t show you, but this recap will be written as if this is the first time The Ashley has ever heard of this girl.

On with the show!

The episode kicks off with a cartoon sketch of a pretty blond girl– oh, how I’ve missed these colorless cartoon wonders! We are introduced to Maddy while she and a friend splish-splash in a pool. She lives in a Full House (sans Kimmy Gibbler or any creep Uncle-like characters that live in the basement and do bad Bullwinkle impressions on the regular.) She lives with her mom and an assortment of real and half siblings in Tinley Park, which is outside of Chicago. She has a close relationship with her dad, who lives in the great state of Indiana. (I’m praying to the Baby Jesus that his neighbors are Gary and/or Amber from Teen Mom.)

Maddy’s about to start her junior year of high school. One thing she isn’t about to start? Her period! Because….she’s pregnant!

“16 and Pregnant” Star Maddy Godsey Answers Fans’ Questions About Her Episode

16 and pregnant season 5

Maddy is now a brunette!

The fifth season of 16 and Pregnant premiered last night with an explosive episode featuring Illinois teen Maddy Godsey, who after breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, got pregnant with a guy she hooked up with on the rebound.

That guy, Cody Jensen, gave Maddy mixed signals throughout her pregnancy: he claimed he wanted to be with Maddy, yet failed to be there for her while she was pregnant. (Don’t worry if you missed the episode last night; The Ashley will be doing her best to recap each episode this season!)

Before last night’s episode aired, Maddy took to her social media accounts to give her fans some background about what was really happening during filming between her and Cody, and provide details on why she made some of the choices that she did.

“Before everyone sees the show, I just wanna point some things out so I don’t seem like a HUGE bitch lol,” she posted on Monday night. “It’s hard to fit everything into an hour show so some things may have gotten cut out!”

Maddy provided an update on her life today and answered questions about where things stand with Cody. Obviously, this is only Maddy’s side of the story, but, based on what we saw last night, it seems to be based on truth.

Does Cody still see baby Aubrey?
