    I know there has to be some viewers out there?
    This is my guilty pleasure Teen Mom 1 & 2 and 16 and Pregnant...

    I am just so disgusted with Jenelle! It is sad though, like I don't know what I would do exactly if I was Jenelle's mom. I feel so bad for the baby, they are both constantly fighting in front of him, in his ear, poor thing.

    I want Corey and the girl with the twins (leah?) back together and it looks like its going to happen. I think she's truly sorry and is starting with a clean slate.

    I know that other girl is going to end up with her boyfriend (ugh!) which makes me so mad!!!! She is romanticizing her past relationship with him, he's a jerk, any guy who called his own baby a "mistake" would be written off in my book.

    And the blond that lives with Jo, it kind of bothers me that they are broken up and she is looking to date other guys ALREADY, yet still lives with her boyfriend's parents. :sad2:

    We shall see what the season brings...

    Hi
    Jennelle is this season's Amber. Good grief. but I did notice that her DM was kind of hogging the baby, re changing him,etc. but I am sure she is at the point, has been at the point where she knows Jennelle isn' t going to do it. and why were j and her friends walking from the house when they drove there?

    Leah and Cory-if they do get back together, they have a lot to work out in ways of trust.

    Jo and his Gf, exgf, awkward, but I did wonder thinking what if Jo brought home a new girl, but his ex was all ready talking to someone else. good grief, do not be like her mom and appear to have to be with a man. her DM didn't even say you can come live with me.

    The girl who's ex wrote about signing papers for that mistake, good grief. Honestly, I wish Dr.Drew would start having a program like his celebrity addiction and teen mom,etc and get these girls who have such low self esteem and have them have therapy to get some self worth.

    There is no excuse for Jenelle's behavior towards her mother but I think I can understand her frustration. Her mother is way too involved and controlling with the baby.

    Jenelle & her mom are both train wrecks - but at least Jenelle's mom WANTS to take care of the baby, whereas Jenelle just doesn't want to be around. I don't get how any mother could say "well he's asleep every night so I can go out." ??? Kids do get up after they go to sleep & need to be changed, fed, cared for, they can be sick during the night, etc. Just from what they play on the show I think Jenelle could be deemed an unfit mother - and they show her next week out front smoking pot. I think that mom needs to kick her to the curb & get custody - and possibly a restraining order for the abuse Jenelle has shown towards her. They showed her shoving her twice & threatening to punch her & kill her. Lovely. It would take a lot for me to say a child should be kept from their mother, but Jenelle is pretty much at that point in my book. If she tells her mom she's going to kill her, she'll say the same thing to Jace eventually too. She has no respect for anyone & only cares about herself.

    I'm rooting for Leah & Corey too!

    I really see Jenelle as the new Farrah, they both want to go out partying and having fun and want there mom to watch the babies.

    I really like Corey, he seems so together I really hope him and Leah can't get back together. It seems like she has gronw up!

    I understand that her mother has to care for him when she goes out. Obviously! And I don't think she should be going out reularly even if she is a teenager. But there were several times that Jenelle was trying to parent and her mother wouldn't let her.

    I think Jenelle is a mess but I also think her mother is too. I'm not sure that baby should be with either of them.

    I tend to question whether Jace would be well off with either Jenell or her mom. They both seem to have some major issues. I think Jenell and her mom are toxic to each other. Once Jenell had the baby I think their relationship could have been different had they both stepped up to the plate, performed their roles in Jace's life and respected each others role. We are so far beyond that now. They have no respect for each other and Jace is placed right in the middle.

    I really hope Leah and Cory end up together. I have always liked Cory and how he has taken responsibility for his girls. I am glad that Cory hasn't made getting back together easy for Leah. I'm glad she has had time to live what she thought she wanted and has realized the value of Cory not only for the babies, but for her also.

    I read a news article online re: Jenelle and she willingly gave up care and custody of her baby boy last June. Also her mom is bi-polar and on meds....Hopefully things will turn out ok for that baby boy

    The whole situation with the all the ppl. in the Jenelle situation, just scare the crap out of me. They're both (Jenelle and her mom) freakin crazy, and neither seem to care much about the baby. They both (especially Jenelle's mom) seem to use the baby as a tool against the other. Honestly, I think that situation is even worse than Amber/Leah/Gary from Teen Mom 1, which is horrifying. When I first saw 16 & pregnant with Jenelle, she came across as a total witch, and I wished she hadn't kept the baby. I still think she's a total witch, but I think her mom is also a total witch and I think her mom is malicious, and very manipulative. I think she tries to purposely push Jenelle's buttons, and Jenelle's just too immature to see that. I don't know what I'd do if I had a mother like that. Personally, I think Jenelle's mom is even worse than Jenelle, and I think she's pretty much scum. I feel HORRIBLE for Jace, and I wish they would've given him up for adoption, neither of them are fit to raise a child. It's really scary and soooo sad.

    I hope Leah and Cory get back together too.

    I don't have much to say on the Jo/boyfriend baby thing. She seems okay, lots of childhood issues, but otherwise seems okay. Not sure about him at all, and I don't really remember them from 16 & pregnant. Jo's mom seems like a total loser. I can't believe she wouldn't offer to give her child and grandchild a place to live. Thank goodness the boyfriends mom seems to care about them all.

    The other girl...she never should've moved out, and she needs some serious counseling. It looks like she does get back with that verbally abusive guy, and honestly after what he said about the baby, I really do judge her in letting him come back into her life like that. I know she lacks a lot of self-confidence, and I do feel bad for her, but there comes a point where you have to put if not yourself, your kid's best interest 1st priority, and the babies dad is a piece of crap.

    I just don't know what to say!
    3 out of 4 are just total train wrecks!

    Corey and Leah are the only ones who might be ok.

    I feel really badly for Kailyn. I don't think starting a new relationship is the greatest choice for her but dang, she is in a terrible situation. :sad1:

    Anyone know how Ali is?

    Jo is the boyfriend. His mom is the one allowing the baby's mom to live in the basement. The baby's mom is named Kailyn. :)

    I watch it as well. I feel like Janell and her mom are both to blame. Janell for not stepping up and the mom for really just being in the way and a total control freak. Neither one will change. Janell was just too young to have a baby.

    Kailyn - will end up being just like her mom and needing a man and she really needs to move out of Jo's house. That whole situation will not end up well at all.

    I am really pulling for Cory and Leah. Those babies are adorable and while Cory and Leah are still so young they really seem to put the babies first.

    The one who moved out and her dad is paying for it - can't remember her name - I hope she finishes school she seems so unmotivated to do anything though. She is probably a good mom and that baby is too cute but she needs to finish something and grow up a bit. I understand wanting both parents for your baby but that guy is just using her to be on TV IMHO!

    I may have missed a couple episodes but I am confused. :confused3 While I am not advocating that Kailyn jump into another relationship right away, why does Jo give a crap what Kailyn is doing if he doesn't want to be with her? It seems to me that she has been willing in the past to work things out with Jo but he can't be bothered with her. Now the previews are showing his mother having an issue with her moving on when her son can't be bothered to work on his end of the relationship with his baby's mother. Jo is also shown having a huge attitude about her taking Isaac around another man even though he has stated he has no romantic interest in Kailyn. What do they want from her?

    I missed about 5 min. last night so correct me if I'm wrong, but I just couldn't believe Jenelle called her mom & ask to be allowed back home & there wasn't a "thanks mom!" I don't know why that surprises me, given Jenelle's history, but seriously - the FIRST thing I'd want out of my kid's mouth if that were us, was "Thanks mom for taking care of my kid the last week when I didn't come home. And thanks for giving me another chance & letting me move back in." What is wrong with people these days? I thought the mom handled the call well, laying down the rules & telling her calmly this was her last chance, but I would have demanded an apology before we even got that far.

    I totally agree with all your points!

    Jenelle is definitely in the wrong for all her partying and the awful way she treats her mother. But I don't think the mom is necessarily a saint here either.. I can almost see some of Jenelle's points when they argue - Jace is Jenelle's child, and there are times when she says I want to hold him, I want to change him, etc. She is showing initiative (as she should) to be a good mother .... if Jenelle's mom wasn't such a witch herself, she'd let Jenelle take some responsibility instead of being a control freak and doing all the parenting herself. They are both just so far deep into this mess, I honestly don't think either should have custody of Jace until their issues are solved.

    Corey and Leah -- I really hope they get back together.. I feel like they both want to, and they seem like such good parents to the twins!

    Kailyn and Jo... another mess. I do feel for Kailyn because her mom looks like a fruit loop, and that has to be an extremely difficult situation to be in. But if she just stayed in Jo's basement, stopped with this new boyfriend nonsense and maybe saved her money so she could move out, her and baby Isaac would be a lot better off.

    And Chelsea.. that's the one who's father pays for her rent while she goes to school. I don't think she should've left her parents house - not in this situation at least. I think either she won't finish school, and her parents will get upset and force her to move back home, or she'll end up neglecting her daughter living in that house. And is her friend crazy?! Who would want to move into a house with your 19 year old best friend and her daughter?

    Love this season so far though! I wonder if they'll do a special on the original teen mom girls? Even just like a one-hour episode at the end of the season so we can see what's going on with each of them :)

    I can kind of understand Jo's family being upset with Kailyn for dating. Even though the relationship is not working out between them for now, once she starts to date and move on, there will never be a chance for them. Even though their relationship dissolved, Jo is their baby's father and it still has to be hard to see her with another guy, and the baby with another guy as well. His parents are opening their home to her, no matter what, and it's just not right at this point. Too soon. I agree she needs to just concentrate on being a mom, starting college so she can have a future. That's how I would feel if I were Jo's parents and opened my home to her. She has plenty of time for that in the future.

    Could baby Ali's doctor on last night's episode have been any more personable and compassionate? NOT. I felt bad for Leah and her mom. He was so impersonable and uncompassionate.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong with the twin? Is it some sort of partial paralysis? Poor little one :(
