Things got super ugly on the Aug. 13 episode of ‘Teen Mom 2.’ Nathan called Jenelle ‘trailer trash,’ Jeremy threatened to divorce Leah, Kailyn and Javi got into a slight car accident, and Chelsea took her daughter to a place where you drink wine and paint canvases. For real.
Every relationship was hanging by a thread on the August 13 episode of Teen Mom 2. Chelsea Houska, the only one not experiencing man troubles — because why would she ever want to fight with her hot new boyfriend, Cole DeBoer? — did, however, take Aubree to a playdate with her half-sister, Paislee, at a place where you drink wine and paint canvases. And to us, that’s just as traumatizing. They must not have any Gymborees in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Let’s start with the “trailer trash.” Nathan Griffith‘s words, not ours. Jenelle Evans started the episode fighting with Nathan, but what else is new? Nathan accused her of cheating on him, saying she’s “so f***ed up in the head” before following it up with Jenelle’s classic “dude.” I’ve honestly never heard the word “dude” used more in my life — not even when I binge-watched Nickelodeon’s Hey Dude last summer. Anyway, he then asked her why all her other relationship failed, but he said “felled.” Must be a South Carolina thing. Her response? Because she left them. Apparently, her ex, Gary Head, has told her she’s the “best girlfriend” he ever had. Nathan then accused her of having problems, and she shoved some liquor bottles in front of him and told him to “drink some more, buddy.” And that’s when Nathan ripped into Jenelle, telling her she’s “trailer trash who hit the lottery,” obviously referring to her hefty salary earned on 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2.
Nathan then went away to Atlanta, Georgia for a few days to do some “business.” Jenelle suspected he was up to no good and so did we. Doesn’t this guy not work? During their mini vacation away from each other, Jenelle spent some time with Jace, and Barbara told her she wants to talk about their pending court case. (Side note: Barbara got such a small amount of screen time this week and that makes us sad.) When Nathan walked in the front door a few days later, he fell into a giggling fit and said he had been home for a while. Jenelle and her girlfriend just stared at each other in confusion. He said his “business meeting” went well, but Jenelle noticed he was acting more hyped up than usual. Not wanting to deal with him, she planned a night out with “just some friends” the following evening. (Why are they so vague with each other? That wouldn’t fly in my relationship.) A fight quickly escalated and Nathan asked for his ring back, but she refused because it was “a gift.” She packed up Kaiser (roll) and walked out the door, but not before he yelled, “take the ring off!” And she said not to worry — she will before going out, suggesting she’d be trying to appear single.
Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin were still fighting on this week’s episode. No, we’re not joking. Because of their fight during her Los Angeles trip, and their upcoming Florida trip with friends and family (must be nice to go on so many vacations!), this darling duo decided to go away for the day — without the kids — and work out their issues. Nothing a little fast food can’t fix, right? Wrong! While in the drive-through at a random fast food joint, Kail asked Javi if Sterling and her very tan mom should come with them to Florida. He said he’d feel uncomfortable with it after she asked him to be honest, but that sent Kail into a rage. She asked to be taken home immediately. He refused as he sped down the highway, chomping down on his chicken nuggets. Things went from bad to worse when Javi ran over a four-by-four block of wood in the middle of the road and popped the car’s tire. At least those chicken nuggets survived. Later, Javi had a heart-to-heart with his sister and realized he needs to apologize to Kailyn and work on his issues, which he said he will do.
Kailyn also met up with her ex, Jo Rivera, who laughed and giggled while talking about the prospect of moving into her development.
Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert are also on the brink of divorce. Except, he actually might go through with it. They haven’t seen each other in weeks and he refused to put his hard-earned money in their joint bank account because she has a spending problem. Leah whined to her friend, who just a few weeks ago said it’s okay to “whip” her kids, and they think Jeremy’s the one with the problem. Leah just said she knows she has a spending problem, but Jeremy told his friend it might have something to do with her medication. When they met up to exchange Adalynn (Is that even her name? I can’t keep up.), Leah said she was disappointed. After Jeremy told her she’s not the girl he fell in love with, she started bawling her eyes out, jumped in her vehicle, drove off and started ranting to herself. It was the strangest thing.
And last but not least, Chelsea hit a roadblock in her custody battle with her ex, Adam Lind, when she found out his ex, Taylor, has been talking to him again. And Taylor has decided to settle with Adam outside of court, meaning Chelsea will be left battling him alone. She did, however, decide to meet up with Taylor and her daughter with Adam, Paislee, for a play date with Aubree — at a Wine & Canvas. While there, Chelsea warned Taylor not to believe everything Adam says, as he’s very “manipulative.” And Paislee doused herself in paint. No one seemed to care, though. (Where was Cole? We want to see more of him. And shirtless would be nice.)
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad Leah and Jeremy are splitting up? Should Kailyn and Javi do the same? Will Jenelle ever have a healthy relationship? And isn’t Chelsea’s boyfriend so hot? Tell us how you feel!
