Just an FYI: This post has no screen captures, because Hulu took down the video for some reason. I guess I took too long to blog it. I learned my lesson!
I am probably the most horrible blogger in the history of blogdom. I haven’t even blogged last week’s episode of Teen Mom 2 and this week’s episode has already aired! I’m slapping myself on the wrist as we speak. Well, not really, but wouldn’t that be a funny image? Me sitting here, just slapping myself repeatedly on the wrist. Anyway, this blog post will be a quick one. I would say an even shorter recap than usual, but who are we kidding? My recaps are never short.
Kailyn and Jo are saying their trying to make their relationship work, but at the same time, they’re not back together. I’m confused. Jo has been stepping up to the plate since Kailyn is going to school, then directly to work from school. But then everything blows up over who’s going to do laundry. Laundry, people! After that, all they do is argue. Must be some pretty awful laundry.
Their arguing is causing problems with Jo’s parents, Janet and Eddie. I think they’re getting sick of their cellar dweller. Jo ends up getting kicked out of the house one day, because he got into a fight with his dad and he up and takes Isaac to his aunt’s house in New Jersey, a 2 hour drive away, just giving Kailyn a mere head’s up that that’s what he’s going to do. He was sort of like, “Hey, I got us kicked out of the house, you have to find a new place to live, I’m taking Isaac to Newark. See ya.” Yeah.
Kailyn ends up staying with her friend, Stephanie, in Pennsylvania, but Jo wants her to move to New Jersey, despite the fact that she is going to school and has a job in Pennsylvania. Since they can’t figure this out over the phone, Jo meets Kailyn at a restaurant to discuss their living arrangements. (Does anyone else notice how Jo just CAN NOT make eye contact? It makes him look almost cute.) He says that he wants to stay in New Jersey, but, in the meantime, he’s staying at a hotel. Kailyn decides to stay with him at the hotel, so she “can spend time with Isaac.” Suuuure, spend time with Isaac. Likely story.
Jenelle is trying to be a better mom to Jace, so she’s going to a generic college to better herself (they never actually mention what college she’s going to, just that she’s going to “a college.” I suppose that is for privacy reasons, but it still sounds funny). However, financial aid might be an issue since her mom, Barbara, has temporary custody of Jace who is probably one of the cutest babies ever. And, since her mother is a dingbat, she gives Jenelle the wrong financial aid forms so she has to track down the right ones. She goes to Barbara’s house and Barbara totally rips her a new asshole for not giving her more notice. I almost saw her head spin around.
This family puts the func in dysfunctional, let me tell ya. Jenelle ends up hanging out with Kieffer a whole lot. In fact, she’s spending so much time with him that she forgets she has a kid she’s supposed to “baby-sit” the following day. She zonks out and sleeps through her alarm, sleeps through her mother’s frantic phone calls, everything. When she finally comes to, she goes to her mother’s house and her stepfather screams at her for like 20 minutes. Well, I don’t know how long, but it seems like 20 minutes. At any rate, it was a long time and I got scared of him.
Jenelle gives Kieffer the whole sob story about how rotten her mother is and how she’s always demeaning her, etc. It does sound pretty bad actually and I feel sorry for Jenelle. But still, Jenelle has a lot of growing up to do. Then Barbara comes home and she’s fit to be tied. She ends up kicking Jenelle out again. Oy.
Fantasy Land Leah
Leah is now an hour away from her family and friends, Corey is working all the time, and she just has 2 babies for company. Sounds like fun, right? Not really. When she has her mom and stepfather over for dinner one night, her mother says that Leah should carry the brunt of the responsibility since she’s not working. I’m not sure I agree with that. Leah says that she wants help on the weekends. So what is Corey doing on the weekends then? Watching sports on TV and scratching his balls? Does he not help at all?
We find out soon! She leaves the girls with Corey while she goes shopping with a friend for a couple hours. He calls her quite a bit, wanting to know where stuff is, like the bottles and the baby wipes. It’s like he never changes or feeds them. THEN! he’s calling her to find out when she’ll be back, because the girls are crying and he doesn’t know what to do.
She does not seem happy. However, he does tell her that he’ll help her so she can go to school. I’ll believe it when I see it.
The Tanning Twins, Chelsea and Megan are getting into a nice little routine with Aubree, but Adam’s still moving in (dun dun DUN) and they hope he doesn’t cramp their style. So they make a list of “requirements” for him. Yup. Requirements. Sounds like a jolly good time. He has to have a job, he needs to pick Chelsea and Aubree over vehicles, he can’t cheat on her anymore…you know, the usual stuff. AND! she still hasn’t told her dad.
Let’s play another game of Hide the Adam! He’s moving in, but Megan agreed not to tell Chelsea dad, Randy. That means Randy will still be lurking about and Adam (and his friends, because they’ll probably be there too) will be running for the hills every time they see his truck pull up.
Since Chelsea is running out of time to get her High School diploma, Adam is trying to step up to the plate to help with Aubree, but guess what? He sucks at it as much as Corey does. So, one day, Randy stops by (I just jump from idea to idea. Keep up with me!) while Chelsea is out and notices Adam’s stuff all over the place since he’s a slob. Randy says he wants Adam to move out, but if he HAS to live there, he needs to chip in. Sounds fair to me.
