Jenelle comes face-to-face with her ex-fiance for the first time since their violent fight. Plus, Leah asks her biological father to walk her down the aisle, Kailyn can’t wait to get married and Chelsea wants a break from school. Read on for the full recap!
After the explosive fight between Jenelle Evans and her ex-fiance Gary Head, the Teen Mom had been leaning on her on-again, off-again boyfriend Kieffer Delp for support. On the April 8 episode of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle and Kieffer must face Gary in jail — and Kieffer is ready for a fight.
Jenelle Comes Face-To-Face With Gary
As Jenelle recaps the violent altercation between herself and Gary the night they both got arrested, it’s clear she wants nothing to do with her Marine ex anymore. She tells her friend Tori that Gary ripped the engagement ring off her finger, and tried to strangle her with a bed sheet. Jenelle also admits she is finding comfort back with Kieffer, and they are basically back together.
To settle her end of the charges — Jenelle was also arrested and hit with possession of marijuana among other charges — she meets with her lawyer Dustin R. T. Sullivan, who reminds her that even though she is facing legal consequences she is still a victim too. He think she has a good case to beat the charges.
But perhaps the hardest part of the ordeal is telling her mom Barbara Evans she is back together with Kieffah. Not surprisingly, Babs is worried that Jenelle having boyfriend after boyfriend after boyfriend around Jace will be damaging to him growing up, but says if Kieffah isn’t getting high all the time and gets his life back on track, she’s OK with it.
They all group hug, and Jenelle seems to be getting her life back on track… which is right around the time things go wrong for her. We’ll have to see what happens next week!
Kailyn Wants To Marry Javi Sooner Rather Than Later
Even though Kailyn Lowry and her boyfriend Javi Marroquin didn’t get married in Vegas, she still wants to tie the knot sooner rather than later. She mostly wants the health insurance and other legal benefits for her and Isaac now that Javi is in the Air Force — plus the extra $2,000 a month she will get for bills.
Although getting married in the Justice of the Peace will help them legally, Kailyn is ready to take the plunge with Javi, but she wants an official proposal and real wedding ceremony down the line — just after they get their legal situation figured out.
Luckily, Kailyn’s lawyer says she can marry Javi and not have to tell her baby daddy Jo Rivera until after it’s official. But will Jo let Kail and Isaac move with Javi away from him? She says if it comes down to it, she won’t leave her son behind.
Javi and Kailyn both agree they may be rushing their relationship, but it’s the right thing for them right now!
Leah Asks Her Biological Dad To Walk Her Down The Aisle
Leah Messer sees her baby daddy Corey Simms for the first time since he was ordered to pay more child support, and he is still livid. He still thinks he got screwed out of the bargain, especially since Leah makes more money than him (thanks to her MTV paycheck, although he didn’t outright say that on air).
As tensions are still high with Corey, Leah is still planning her wedding ceremony with Jeremy (part two since they already got married at the courthouse), but wants her biological dad to be there to walk her down the aisle.
Fortunately, mama Dawn Spears isn’t opposed to reaching out, and thinks her husband Lee Spears (Leah’s stepdad) will actually be supportive. So Leah calls her dad — and he agrees, he wants to keep building a relationship with his daughter.
Hopefully come the big wedding day, there are no awkward tensions.
Chelsea Wants To Take A Month Leave From School
Chelsea Houska sick with mono, and is forced to move yet again. She is worried that moving in top of dealing with school and taking care of Aubree will be too stressful, so she is thinking about taking a couple weeks off school to get everything in order.
When she brings this up to her dad Randy, he actually isn’t opposed as long as she actually goes back. Chelsea has been known to start things and not finish them in the past, so he’s just hoping she keeps up her end of the bargain.
But when Chelsea brings up the idea of a month off from school to her counselor, she is reminded that her grades and attendance already aren’t great to begin with — she only has a 56 percent attendance rate, and she is earning an average of 60 percent in all of her classes.
Obviously, it’s not smart for Chelsea to take more time off if she barely shows up in the first place.
