On last night’s episode, Jenelle and Nathan decide they want a baby, you know, since they now live together, have been dating for two months, and since Jenelle is sober, it’s obviously a great idea! [Note: sarcasm!].
The couple decided to break the news to Barbara over ice cream, which was a brilliant distraction, seriously. If Barbara did not have a delicious frosty treat in hand to focus on instead of the fact that her 21 year old daughter who doesn’t have custody of her first child is planning a second kid, who knows what obscenities would have flown out of her mouth!
We are four episodes into season five of Teen Mom 2, and there have been no blow-ups between Barbara and Jenelle, no arrests, a lot of talk about probation, and a move in with the new BF, who Jenelle can’t believe isn’t a liar. She did yell in his face in this season’s trailer about him always being with other girls, right? Sounds like our good friend Jenelle will be back any episode now.
On last night’s episode, Jenelle and Barbara have their umpteenth conversation about Jenelle’s possible jail time and probation. Every time Barbara has one of these conversations with her daughter, the look on her face is always of disbelief:
Sorry Babs, this is your unscripted reality.
Two episodes in and my heart is breaking for Leah. I hope it’s only up from here.
Speaking of only up from here, we are two episodes in and there has not been a blowout between Jenelle and Barbara! I really thought Jenelle was going to lose it when Barbara started asking her about what would happen if she went to prison, but she was calm, cool and collected. Maybe it was Babs’ new haircut that kept her under control?
While we are on the topic of hair, I’m obsessed with Chelsea’s! Always. I wish I could pull it off!
Props to MTV for incorporating a Janet Jackson song as the title of the most recent Teen Mom 2 episode! I’m pretty sure their audience has no idea this song exists.
I’m late with Barbara this week! I DVR a thousand shows on Tuesdays, and I’m pretty sure Teen Mom 2 got overrode with The State of the Union, so I had to wait till it was available On Demand to capture this week’s gem.
There was actually a really sweet moment between Jenelle and Barbara when she was talking about dating, and Jenelle didn’t even get angry when Barbara seemed super-surprised that an underwear model wanted to go on a date with her daughter. Precious.
You know what else is precious? Jace dropping the F-bomb then covering it up by saying he said, “Football,” and not “F**kball.”
The look of a mother in disbelief that her heroin-addict-underage-daughter is pregnant…Again!
I woke up Wednesday morning to the sight is Teen Mom 2 on my DVR. What a pleasant surprise!
Much to my dismay, when I put it on it was merely a catch up special, which I’ll take, of course!
For Teen Mom 2 I have to dedicate my DVR Pause to Barbara, her sick accent, accusations, tantrums, and her face to match!*
Let’s gear up with this gem from the catch up special!
*I really feel the need to include a disclaimer for this, it’s about to get serious up in here. These DVR Pause posts are all in good fun, even the ones about Barbara. I understand that she’s dealing with a lot, but she has become an internet meme and want to entertain the masses!
