In case you haven’t heard, I started a spin-off to The Reality Junkies called Teen Mom Junkies and it’s all about…you guessed it: Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, and 16 and Pregnant!  With season 3 of Teen Mom premiering tomorrow, I wanted there to be a one-stop shop for all your Teen Mom episode recaps, information, and news.  The site is teenmomjunkies.com.  You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

I hope everyone is having a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!  <3

This week, we meet Markai.  Markai lives with her mother, Sarina, and her sister, Samarra.  All was going well until Markai met James, who also appears to be the bane of her mother’s existence.  It could be because she got pregnant almost immediately after meeting James.  She doesn’t want her daughter to make the same mistakes she did.  So it’s yet another case of “Do as I say, not as I do.”  I do know where she’s coming from though.  She learned from the bad choices she made and doesn’t want her daughter to fall into the same trap.

Meet Felicia.  Felicia will be the first person in her entire family to graduate from High School.  Awesome, right?  There’s only one stumbling block in her way…Felicia is pregnant.  Felicia lives with her grandmother, her mother, Reina, and her stepfather, Tony.  To make things easier on them, Reina allowed Felicia’s boyfriend, Alex, to move in with them once she found out Felicia was pregnant.  As always, I have some thoughts:

Since Teen Mom is on hiatus, I decided to fill up my time with watching 16 & Pregnant.  I have never actually seen the show before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I’ve decided to do these posts in a different format.  Instead of a full recap, I’m only going to post my thoughts, since I know you all love to read what I’m thinking as I watch TV.  Don’t forget the occasional screenshot too, since a picture really is worth a thousand words; or, in some cases, ten thousand words.
