The ‘Teen Mom 2′ premiere had all the drama, tears and life lessons we hoped for — these girls are crazy!

The highly anticipated series premiere for MTV’s Teen Mom 2 introduced us to four new girls Jan. 11, all of whom we’d seen before on 16 and Pregnant. Leah Messer, Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska are the new Amber, Farrah, Maci and Caitlynn — and once again MTV’s gotten us totally hooked.

Leah Messer:

The episode kicked off (literally) with Leah, a cheerleader who had only been dating her boyfriend for a month when she got pregnant with twins! Leah’s one of the lucky teen moms that managed to graduate high school, though she was disappointed when baby daddy Corey didn’t show up to support her. (But what did she expect? She cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend, Robbie!).

At the end of the hour, she cooked a dinner for Corey when he came to pick up the twins, Aliannah and Aleeah. He told Leah he wants to get back together with her, especially for the girls’ sake, but it’s going to take time for him to trust her again.

Kailyn Lowry:

Kailyn’s mom, Suzi, turns her back on her daughter when she got pregnant, and she won’t let her live in the house with baby Isaac. She’s forced to move in with her baby daddy Jo‘s family. With limited resources — like only having Jo’s car for the two of them — Kailyn and Jo ended up fighting for the entire episode.

Jo suggested Kailyn move out for a bit to give them space, but really, Kailyn had no where else to go. Luckily for her, Jo’s parents let her stay in the house with Issae, despite Jo wanting his space. This won’t end well.

Chelsea Houska:

Chelsea’s baby daddy Adam is totally MIA, but her parents are there for her and baby Aubree! Her dad even agreed to pay her rent for a house with her friend and the baby… as long as she keeps up her grades! Living on her own, she quickly became lonely and said she missed Adam. It sounds like she didn’t even consider the relationship ending and having to live as a single teen mom.

Jenelle Evans:

Of all the new girls lives, Jenelle’s seems to be the most dramatic. Her baby daddy, Andrew, is totally out of the picture, so Jenelle is raising baby Jayce with the help of her mother, Barbara. A mother and daughter raising a baby together — sounds simple enough, right? Nope! Jenelle and her mother fight ALL the time about Jenelle going out with her friends being irresponsible with Jayce.

In fact, Grandma Barbara and teen mom Jenelle got into a heated argument over using the internet, and Barbara tried to make a power move, suing for custody of Jayce! The episode ends with a huge blow-up between the two, and I can’t wait to see what happens!
