Teen Mom 2 fans have been speculating for over a year about the state of Leah Calvert‘s marriage to second husband Jeremy Calvert. The couple’s fighting has been a main focus of the show for the past season, and even fueled Jeremy’s Assault By Bacon on his wife last season. In addition, Leah continues to tweet subtle messages that are seemingly related to her troubled marriage to Jeremy.
In a new interview with In Touch, Leah addresses her marital problems and reveals whether or not she and Jeremy are really getting divorced.
Just when you thought you had said your final goodbyes to the girls of Teen Mom 2, the reality TV gods (and the MTV execs that realized what a goldmine this sh*tshow is) have decided to gift us with an entirely new season! While they aren’t calling this Season 6 (for reasons The Ashley explained a while back), that’s essentially what it is, with a bunch of new episodes that follow the lives of Chelsea Houska, Kail Lowry, Leah Calvert and Jenelle Evans.
Anyway, let’s get started. The faster we blow through Leah, Kail and Chelsea’s parts, the faster we get to Babs!
The episode starts off with a quick recap of last season’s drama. We start off with Chelsea, who tells us that she was able to get a loan to buy a house. I’m sorry, whaaaat? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are endless banks that are just lining up to loan a pile of money to a single young girl who didn’t have a job until about a month ago, but WTF?
The girls from the Teen Mom franchise have gotten a bad rap over the years. While some of the franchise’s stars have chosen to use the fame that the show has garnered them to promote less-than-positive activities, some of the girls are doing their best to make a difference. (It’s nice to write about the positive stuff every once in a while!)
Last weekend, Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra teamed up with Teen Mom 2 stars Kail Lowry and Javi Marroquin to put on a charity event that raised nearly $2,500 for a little girl battling a rare form of cancer.
The ‘Teen Mom’ crew teamed up with the charity organization The LinkFund to host a fan meet-and-greet event in Brighton, Michigan, on July 13. This was very close to the hometown of Amelie “Amie” Strzalkowski, a three-year-old that has been fighting a malignant Medulloblastoma brain tumor for years and is currently undergoing treatment to help her beat the disease. The event included activities put together by the organization Mom2Mom, as well as the fan meet-and-greet and signings of Kail’s book, Pride Over Pity. (All proceeds from that day’s books sales were donated to Amie.)
The event ended up raising almost $2,500, and was more successful than anyone expected!
“Way more people came than we all thought,” Kail told The Ashley in an exclusive interview after the event. “As much as it hurts my heart that Amie and her family have been going through this I feel so thankful to be able to do something like this to help her–and hopefully more families in the future–out.”
Jenelle Evans’ mother, the fabulous Barbara Evans, has had custody of Jenelle’s son, Jace, since he was just a few months old. While Babs has done a great job raising Jace, who is almost five, Jenelle’s boyfriend, Nathan Griffith recently revealed that he plans to adopt Jace and take him out of Barbara’s care.
“I want custody of Jace,” he told OK! in a new interview. “He listens to me and I’m a good role model for him. [Barbara] just yells at him.”
Our gal Babs is not going to be happy when she reads this article (if she has time, however, since she is busy working to support Jace, Jenelle’s sister Ashleigh and Ashleigh’s young son!) Nathan goes on to skewer poor Babs’ parenting skills.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans welcomed her second child, a boy she named Kaiser, into the world on June 29. Her boyfriend, Nathan Griffith broke the news on his Twitter yesterday, informing everyone that the tweets he and Jenelle had been posting about going to the beach that day were all a cover-up for Jenelle being in labor.
On Monday he posted a photo of the baby’s feet sitting next to Jenelle’s arm, to his Twitter account, letting everyone know that the baby had, in fact, been birthed.
And you thought we were at the beach… Sike!!! pic.twitter.com/3wobSVT63G
