I am so behind on recaps that I have not seen the first two episodes of this season. So I am going to try to go through this really quickly because I have lots of other shows in the pipeline and I am just lounging around “in the hole” and not getting things done.
So despite the fact that we have always said pregnancy is nine months, apparently it is closer to ten. I would think in ten months I could decide on the name for a baby. I understand waiting until you actually see the baby to decide from several choices. But I do not under stand having a two month old baby with no name. Apparently, they are calling him Baby Lo. Kailyn seems pissed about the Javi and Brianna situation and she also seems to really be trying to make Javi look bad. She claims he is one way on camera and another way off camera. Where does Kailyn find the random girls to film with? When she does decide to announce the baby’s name she does it while Isaac is napping. Why? Lincoln says he is calling him Baby Lo. The new name is Lux.
It looks like everyone is going to the VMAs and MTV has a glam crew for everyone. I remember when women were capable of doing their own hair and makeup. Nova’s dad go arrested on some sort of drug charge. I hate to hear that, I always liked that kid. Brianna is acting like she and Javi are not a thing, but Javi is taking the kids to Disney and she lives in Orlando so they are going to take their kids together. It looks like just Leah, Brianna and Brianna’s sister went to the VMAs.
It doesn’t seem like Chelsea has any interest in going to the VMAs. She is working with attorneys to add Cole’s last name on to Aubree’s name. It sounds like the dad wants to be financially compensated by agreeing to this. Then Chelsea finds out that Adam has been arrested for domestic assault against his current girlfriend. Also his ex-girlfriend has been granted a five-year restraining order on him based on violent behavior toward her. He is apparently on drugs and one night he broke her arm and locked her in the house.
Jenelle says married life with David out on THE LAND has been just great. You know except for the fact that Kaiser’s grandmother is filing for emergency custody because he appears to be in danger and she’s noticed a lot of bruises. These two are scary. Jenelle blames her mother for Kaiser’s grandma trying to get custody. Also is that pool and Jacuzzi on THE LAND new? Barbara says that Jace tells her that David beats Kaiser’s butt for pooping his diaper. Back in Jenelle’s great life with David, she is crying again over an interview Barbara did about David’s alleged abuse. Jennelle says that David only pretends to punch Kaiser in the face. Oh, okay. Jenelle has nightmares about Barbara. Really, Jenelle?
Leah and Brianna
After the VMAs Leah feels like she has to tell Kail about the Orlando trip with the Javi and Brianna. Of course Kail is mad and is going to call Javi. When I heard Brianna tell the story, it sounded to me like she was going to have her kids, her mom and her sister in a separate hotel room. Kail is retelling the story to Jo saying that Javi and Brianna are sharing a hotel room. Those are two very different things. Brianna has decided not to stay at the hotel. But when the boys call their mom from Orlando, she is pissed that Brianna and the girls are going to the water park with the boys. Everyone seems to be worried about the reunion. This is the reunion we already saw they are talking about. The reunion for this season films this weekend.
Kailyn is worried about taking Baby Lo to the reunion because he is not vaccinated. The other two boys will stay behind and attend school. Brianna has reached out to Kailyn to let her know that she and Javi are just friends and to try to smooth things over, but Kailyn doesn’t seem on track to maintain the peace. Every other word out of her mouth on these two episodes is either “messy” or “shady.”
Leah is taking just Gracie to the reunion as part of their new parenting plan to do more things separately with the twins.
Nathan and his mom are taking Kaiser with them to the reunion because it is their weekend. The custody hearing has been postponed. This maybe because Nathan’s dad is very ill. Or I may be thinking of a different reunion all together. Sometimes real-time and taping time gets confusing. Scenes with Jenelle and David creep me out.
Chelsea brought Aubree and Watson this time. She hasn’t been taking Aubree to reunions for a while but she wanted to come.
Javi seems to want a long distance relationship with Brianna. Brianna seems hesitant to cause issues with Kail.
Speaking of Kail, the hair and makeup room at the hotel isn’t really a room at all and everyone is all smushed together in some sort of equipment area. There is no place for Baby Lo and the sitter to be out of all the hubbub. Kail is not happy and I really don’t blame her this time. Kail doesn’t want to be in the same area with Brianna and Jenelle.
The Teen Mom OG crew rolls in next to film a special with both casts. Kail has to leave to go check on Baby Lo because he’s been crying for an hour and her friend Bone can’t get him to stop. I’m shocked that some random friend named Bone doesn’t know how to care for a newborn.
I remember this special. It seems like a hundred years ago! This is the one where David and Jenelle got really drunk. Actually, they all seem drunk. Drunk David starts aggressively popping all the balloons with something. Apparently, they were in his way. David and Jennelle are acting like they are just leaving but if I recall correctly, they were asked to leave the party. I think David got cut off.
Leah and Brianna have a drunken conversation where Brianna explains to Leah the they way she told the story to Kail had Kail thinking that they were going to be sleeping in the same room in Orlando and that was never the case. Leah was pissed off by the conversation with Brianna. Leah cries about the whole situation.
Wait, after all that Teen Mom 2 Reunion wasn’t even filmed until the next day? The next episode is more of the reunion filming. I feel like Brianna is trying to keep the peace with Kailyn and Kailyn is just fanning the flames. I also think that Brianna joining the show would have been a lot easier if she didn’t let her mother and her sister jump into her situations.
It appears that things with Brianna and Javi did not end well. On the after show, Brianna says that Javi just wants to be on Teen Mom. You know… just like she does and Kailyn does and Jo does and Nathan does.
