They're Baaaaaack...

The new season of Teen Mom 2 is premiering tonight on MTV (10 pm/9 Central).  I think I'm even more excited about the return of these ladies than I was about the return of the Teen Mom ladies back in July (wrote about that here).  The Teen Mom 2 cast may not have been the original, but I think there's a strong argument that it's the most beloved.  They're the Godfather II of the Teen Mom empire.

I watched the Teen Mom 2 recap just yesterday to insure that the drama of last season is fresh in my mind.  By the way, can you believe there's only been one season of Teen Mom 2?  First there was 16 and Pregnant Season 2A (yeah...2A...), which opened with Jennelle Evans on February 16, 2010 and the others followed throughout the season.  Then, the ten girls from 16 and Pregnant Season 2A were cut down to four.  Those four were then featured in the first season of Teen Mom 2 that aired on January 11 this year.

That quick history made me realize that the lives of the Teen Mom 2 cast members have drastically changed in a very short period of time.  While we (the general public) were briefly introduced to Jenelle, Chelsea, Kailyn and Leah in spring 2010, we've come to know and gawk at love them just this past year.   And what a year it has been for them, both on and off screen.  This thought motivated me to search the world wide interweb and collect some off-camera happenings of the four mommy superstars.  Here is your one-stop shopping for what Jennelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer have been up to on the off season.

Jennelle Evans - Jennelle spent many of her off-camera hours hanging out with police officers, judges, attorneys and rehab counselors.  She was arrested on March 28, 2011.  The alleged crime?  Assault.  The truth behind the allegation became quite clear when a video surfaced.  The assault (aka Jennelle beating the crap out of another female teenager) was caught on tape...NOT by MTV (they wish), but some drunk teenager witness.  The video is below (thanks TMZ).  It's pretty vicious, in a haymaker, hair-pulling kind of way.  Keiffer Delps, Jennelle's on again off again, crazy again crazier again, boyfriend was most recently arrested for assault and is currently serving an 8 month jail sentence.  I couldn't quite get his legal history in chronological order, but it seems there's been a bunch of arrests in a bunch of states.

Chelsea Houska - Chelsea's friend and former roommate, Megan Nelson (who was featured in a few Teen Mom 2 episodes) had a baby on July 4th.  She NATURALLY delivered a BIG boy (9 lbs. 8 ounces).  Chelsea's pug named Pixie went missing on July 7th and I couldn't find any word that the little bugger was ever found.  Sad.  That was all I could gather about Chelsea, she seems to keep the lowest profile of the Teen Mom 2 ladies.

Kailyn Lowry - Kailyn started selling Amway products online.  Weird.  Check out the website (here) if you want to support her and buy Amway.  While your at it, head to Kailyn's personal website (here) and read posts about Isaac (her baby) and her other business (Isaac's clothing line).  I'd specifically like to direct your attention to the July 14, 2011 post entitled "Isaac was conceived...".  Weird.  Finally, just yesterday, Kailyn came to the rescue of Kourtney Kardashian.  Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham had criticized (via twitter) Kourtney K's announcement that she was pregnant with baby number two.  I guess Farrah was upset that the pregnancy is out of wedlock?  It wasn't clear.  Kailyn came to Kourtney's defense (also via twitter).  Weird.

Leah Messer - Leah Messer and Cory Simms were officially married on October 17, 2010.  We all watched the wedding on the season finale of Teen Mom 2 on March 29, 2011.  A couple weeks later, in April 2011, Leah filed for divorce.  Leah's decision to file for divorce was filmed by MTV and we will likely get both sides of the story during the new season.  In the meantime we can speculate about the breakup based on the two reasons that have surfaced: Leah cheated and/or Corey stole $19,000 from Leah.  The divorce was finalized in June 2011.  Also in June 2011?  Leah was rumored to have rekindled her relationship with ex-boyfriend Robbie Kidd, scandalous.

Though I am mesmorized by all seasons/casts of Teen Mom...the cast of Farrah, Macy, Amber and Kaitlyn are by far my favorite. Maybe it's just that I get a kick out of Gary.

I heart your Teen Mom obsession. Thanks for the update but I can't watch in real time I have quite a few episodes on the DVR already.
