Everyone’s favorite Teen Grandmomma, Babs Evans, is famous for her thick New England accent and ratings-gold brawls with her troubled teen mom daughter, Jenelle. So, has Babsy gone to twitter to take out her frustration with raising Jenelle??? Not exactly. BUT, a fan has created a Jenelle-approved twitter account that seems to be the missing link to connect us to Barb in the Teen Mom 2 off season. BabsEvansMTV tweets Barb-isms on the daily and has racked up an impressive 122,000+ twitter followers as of March 21, 2012. Jenelle often retweets some of the faux-Barbra tweets, written in true Barb fashion by using terms such as “FRIGGIN”, “KEIFAHHH”, and ”
Here are some of the recent Barb-isms that have seemed to capture my heart:Barb on Jersey Shore: “GTL? WHAT THA FRIG IS THAT? JBBW (JACE, BUSTIN BAWLS, WINE)” Barb on the Presidential Election: “

A few short months ago Leah Messer-Simms and Jeremy Calvert broke news of their life in the fast lane. They were pregnant AND engaged. Leah suffered an unfortunate miscarriage, but the engagement was still a go! After Leah’s shotgun wedding with Corey Simms, she decided to take things with a much slower pace this time and have a longer engagement with her new fiance. Recently, rumors have been swirling about a possible split between the two West Virginia lovebirds. So, are the rumors true?
Of course not! Leah has assured everyone that her and her main man are still happily together. She should hold on to this one tight, as her ex-husband seems to be on board with Mr. Calvert being around his little ladies too! Things seem to be going much smoother for her than they did for Maci or Kail! All in all, the happy couple is still planning their dream wedding which will take place a long ways away from now…..and hopefully won’t include any of their own munchkins besides Ali and Gracie.
After four years and four seasons, MTV has officially announced that the original girls of Teen Mom’s fourth season will be their last. MTV released the official statement to US Weekly Magazine earlier today. On a Thursday night in June of 2009, we first met Maci, Ryan, and Bentley from Tennessee. The next Thursday we met Farrah and Sophia, then Amber, Gary, and Leah. A couple weeks later we witnessed what I think we can all agree was one of the most touching moments in television history: Carly Elizabeth being given away by her loving birth parents, Catelynn and Tyler, to a safer and more reliable home in Brandon and Theresa.
Oh how four years has changed so many of their situations. Catelynn and Tyler are the only Teen Mom couple still together…………and they’re also the only ones that don’t have a child that can benefit from that. We’ve discovered that Farrah’s situation was far more complex than anyone could have predicted in her 16 and Pregnant episode. The good news is that she is now happy and healthy furthering both her modeling and culinary careers. Maci is still in school studying broadcast journalism at Chattanooga State, and is reportedly in the beginning stages of a relationship with motocross racer, Kyle Regal. Amber is on probation and lost custody of her daughter. Luckily, Leah has a committed, “Mr. Mom” Daddy that has always been there to step in and fill in the gaps.
I leave you guys with some before and after photos of all the mommies, daddies, and babies.
ETA: No word yet on the future of Teen Mom 2. I assume their days are numbered, though. A third season has already been taped and confirmed. I would guess that they too will end after 4 seasons.
If you’re living under a rock, or maybe just outside of a sorority house, you might not have heard of the newest internet craze, Pinterest! Pinterest is a website where you have “boards” to pin images with links to anything from fashion, to photography, to food, to parenting tips! If you can think it, you can pin it! While it’s a little hard to understand at first, take my word that once you start you won’t stop. It’s essentially the crack cocaine of the internet, if you will. But much safer…..I think.
The good news is that all our favorite teen moms have started to join the Pinterest Party, so all our addictions have begun to cram into one! Chelsea, Kail, and Farrah all have confirmed Pintrest accounts that record their favorite things! Chelsea is at no surprise a fan of pinning hair and motivational pictures/quotes, Farrah is a fan of pinning fashion forward outfit ideas for both herself, Sophia, and a potential little boy in her future, and Kail, the newest TM Pinterest member, is a fan of crafts and tattoo pictures!
If you don’t have a Pinterest, it’s easy to start one! Just sign up through Facebook, Twitter, or email and Pinterest will send you an e-vite to join within 48 hours. I leave you with links to the Teen Moms Pintrest accounts so you can follow them. Just click on the picture and it will take you to their Pinterest account!
Miss Maci Bookout didn’t just go on spring break to have a fun time in Daytona with her friends! Maci, who broke off her two-year relationship with Kyle King at the end of January, met a new Kyle to welcome into hers and little Benny’s life. While both have denied that they’re dating, which we believe here at Teen Mom Central (at least for now), they seem to be a perfect match! So who is Maci’s new
Kyle Regal is a motocross racer that resides in Kemp, Texas. He is just a few months older than Maci (compared to Kyle and Ryan who were both 4 years older) as he’ll be 21 on May 14th of this year, and Maci will be 21 on August 10th of this year. He races for the San Manuel Yamaha team, so he has a job (again, an improvement from unemployed Kyle) and has been a professional motocross racer since 2009. He raced in Daytona where Maci and him met up on her Spring Break. He finished 13th overall in the SX class. Experts say he’s a pretty admirable racer who is focused on his career and not the money, as displayed by the fact he’s turned down multiple deals where decent amounts of cash would take up home in his bank account, but he refused the deal because they were with poor quality teams or equipment. He wants to succeed on his own, which means he’s not as likely to take advantage of Maci’s paycheck. This is all hypothetical though, as they are NOT dating…..yet.
Even if they say they’re not dating, they’re sure acting like it! Maci and Kyle snuggled up to each other in a cab while in Daytona (pictured above), along with taking tons of pics together. When Maci got home the connections continued. On twitter, her and Kyle talk back and forth, flirting with each other. Maci might need a guy like this thanks to her hectic schedule. Having a guy that understands she can’t always be there, just like he can’t always be there, thanks to her job might turn out a positive experience for the motocross loving mommy. Especially since the opposite, a guy who can always tag along with her, didn’t seem to work out as she’d hoped. Bentley, a motocross lover himself (even naming his Jack Russel Terrier puppy at his Daddy’s house “Moto”), skyped with Kyle Regal, where Maci said there were “No Girls Allowed!”. The main man in her life and her new friend talked all about racing all night! Many are saying this was “too soon” but I say that as long as this new Kyle character isn’t playing “Daddy” to Bentley in person than it’s no different then Bentley meeting any of Maci’s other friends. Skyping seems like a pretty innocent way for Bentley to get to know the new Kyle from a distance before Maci introduced them in person assuming they eventually do date. Maybe he’s just a rebound, maybe he really is just a friend, or maybe this is the start of the rest of Maci life when it comes to finding that traditional family setting she always hoped she could give Benny. Whatever it is, we here at Teen Mom Central love it!
Chelsea Houska’s last month has been a huge roller coaster of high highs and low lows. She started on a positive note, getting the chance to go to places like New York and Chicago to spread her positive message to use contraception and the struggles she goes through as a teenage parent. Chelsea was also due to enroll in beauty school at the end of the month. Before venturing off to beauty school, Chelsea went down to Louisiana with her bestie, Erika Floam, for a fun filled Mardi Gras weekend with fellow teen-mommy-in-the-spotlight, Jamie Lynne Spears. While her weekend with JLS was all the fun she expected, she made another great connection while she was there. Chelsea connected with a handful of the guys from MTV’s Caged, including Dane, Roy, Danger, Wes, but especially Daniel.
Daniel and Chelsea had spent a couple weeks prior to her trip talking over twitter. While many fans suspected a relationship, Chelsea and Daniel both denied and said they were “just friends” (famous last words, lol). Things got even more suspicious when just a few days after Chelsea and Erika got home from NOLA, Daniel announced that he and Dane were heading to South Dakota to pay Chels, Erika, and Aubs a visit. Their trip came and it was filled with nothing short of suspicion and near conformation from Chelsea and Daniel that they weren’t “just friends” anymore. A few weeks later Chelsea enrolled in her beauty school to live out her hairstylist dreams. Things seemed to finally be looking up for the girl that seems to always be followed by a raincloud. Suddenly, things seemed to take a turn for the worse. Chelsea found out what her fans had been warning her about right from the start: Daniel has a longtime girlfriend, Becca Price.
Although Chels seemed a little taken aback by the confirmation of Daniel’s girl, she assured fans that it didn’t matter as they were “just friends” like she had said all along. But, Teen Mom Talk confirmed last night that she had been lying and they were definitely more than “just friends”. Heather Clouse reports that Chelsea and Daniel weren’t just hanging out, but were hooking up on their cross-country escapades. Chelsea now claims that Daniel said he wanted to “take things slow” in their new relationship. Um, didn’t they just say that they were hooking up the first time they ever met in person? Apparently that’s still “taking things slow” nowadays when it comes to reality stars that are famous for having kids and cagefighting. (insert Farrah eyeroll) So, as much as there seems to be a raincloud that constantly follows Chelsea, is she really the one that’s putting it there in the first place? In this situation, all signs point to yes. While it’s unfortunate she got screwed over, this is now the second time a guy she trusted has lied to her about prominent things in his life via twitter. The first being her fan proclaimed “twitter boyfriend”, Spencer, who lied about the music he wrote. Using other artists songs to get attention from Chelsea, which she fell for.Chelsea seems to be somewhat jealous of Daniel and his girlfriend, still. She seems to be taunting them a little bit via twitter, while Becca seems to be staying out of it for the most part and has forgiven Daniel.
Hopefully Chels can turn this all into a positive experience by warning young girls about guys taking advantage of them on social networks. While she never met up with Spencer, and continues to talk to him, she did meet up with Daniel and he took advantage of her. It’s a story we’ve heard too many times. Girls that meet guys on social networks and suddenly they’re brokenhearted when the guy isn’t what he said he was. Just because Daniel is on TV doesn’t make him any different. Both are to blame, and Chelsea’s lucky all that she ended up with was two wasted weekends.
She seems to be trying to continue to move forward with her life, though. She continues going to beauty school, and is even considering moving out of South Dakota. Her main focuses seem to be Texas for beauty school, California where a friend Kira lives, and even possibly Minneapolis with her best friend/hair stylist, Landon. She also celebrated her best friend Laura’s son, Karter’s, birthday over the weekend. Only time will tell where Miss Chelsea ends up, but Aubree seems happy as ever and could her leopard loving mama really ask for anything more?
Lindsey Harrison is one of the new girls being featured on the new season of 16 and Pregnant. Her and her child’s father, Forest, are still together and raising their adorable daughter, Aniyah Monroe, together in Reno, Nevada. From the previews, Lindsey may seem like one tough momma. After all, she’s a cage fighter! But on the inside Lindsey still loves her little bundle of cuteness went just as all mommy’s do and will always try to set the best example for Aniyah. Her friends seem like they might need a reminder about Lindsey’s new responsibilities, though.
Lindsey has been off trying to be the best mommy for her little darling, especially recently with both her and her boyfriend getting their license, Lindsey taking multiple tests required to get her diploma and graduate, and going to work to bring in some money to support her little family. Unfortunately, Lindsey’s friends seem to lack understanding for her situation. She recently posted to her Facebook account: “Wish I had one friend who’d call &wanna just chill with Aniyah n I for a night instead of go out &party.but I don’t &that”s life “. So sad :( Lindsey was already having a tough weekend because Forest was out of town, and it sounds like her friends weren’t helping. Linds also recently discovered the negative side of featuring her story on MTV. Lindsey says that it bugs her that all the teen moms are compared to each other because they each have different stories and struggles they have to deal with. She reminds us all that what we’re seeing is only a small glimpse into their lives, and that they have no control over how their footage is edited. She just wishes people would stop judging her off of the small amount of footage they’ve seen. AMEN, girl! AMEN!
But don’t think Lindsey is ready to succumb to the pressures of her friends and haters! Lindsey says she is so motivated to get her diploma, even though she hates to leave her baby girl to take her tests. She recently bought her beautiful baby girl an (it’s one of the coolest ones on the market!), an adorable pair of snakeskin sandals, and a sassy black and pink diaper bag for her 6 month birthday! Little Aniyah also has one of the most awesome video baby monitors on the market so Lindsey can keep an eye on her at ALL times. And in just a few short days (11 to be exact) Lindsey will get to meet all her 16 and Pregnant castmates when they head to New York to tape their reunion! She’s already been conversing with a few of the girls, but hopefully she’ll be able to get some phone numbers and skype names so she has some more friends that understand her duties as a dedicated teenage mommy.
Everyone’s favorite Teen Mom couple, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, have never regretted giving their too cute daughter, Carly Elizabeth, up for adoption to North Carolina couple Brandon and Theresa. Although they’ve always stayed faithful to their decision, we’ve seen Catelynn and Tyler struggle with not knowing Carly’s last name (which they know now) and their own lack of effort to be in Carly’s life more often. Since the season has ended, the couple has been happier than ever! They set a wedding date: July 13, 2013 and took some engagement photos to capture the love! Perhaps what has made them happiest though is that they’ve gotten to see Carly not once, but TWICE this month! They bought a new house and Tyler says they have been busy with renovations and construction, along with starring in a PSA for Bethanny Christian Services . The couple has also spoke at schools and meeting groups for pregnant teens and those seeking adoption. They have undoubtedly put two faces on being content with giving their child a better life through adoption and have been the inspiration for so many couples to give their own child(ren) a better life with a couple more prepared for a child.
Through all this happiness there has unfortunately been some heartbreak, though. Tyler’s sister, Amber Baltierra, recently went through a heartbreaking miscarriage. The mother of Lexi, 5; and Jordan,4, Amber and boyfriend Matthew Bell are asking for everyone’s prayers in this difficult time. Amber says her uterus is abnormally high and that the placenta isn’t in the right spot to adequately protect the fetus. Through all this, she says she is a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and that her preschoolers have been keeping her smiling and busy through this difficult time. But, she says this is the hardest thing that she’s ever had to go through, and much more difficult then she ever expected since she passed the fetus naturally at the hospital. My prayers are with Amber and her family, and I hope you can send your encouraging words to her via twitter at: https://twitter.com/#!/AmberBaltierra
Almost three years ago, so many of us let Farrah and baby Sophia into our home for the first time. Ever since then, we’ve followed the duo along their journey to reach Farrah’s culinary dreams!!! Farrah has been one of the only girls to stick to her plan from the start, not even allowing a baby to stop her! She headed down to Florida last year where she enrolled at her dream school, Florida International University, and The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale to help her achieve her Culinary Management degree.
Farrah is on the fast track, as usual, and is already launching her own Mom & Me Premium Hot Pepper Sauce! The sauce is her own family’s recipe that was passed down to Farrah through the four generations before her, and Miss Farrah plans to share the sauce with her adorable toddler Sophia whenever she gets old enough. Farrah has been trying hard to give Sophia more than just a recipe, but maybe even an entire business! Farrah and her mom, Debra, have been hard at work promoting the sauce but need your help! They are trying to get the sauce to a Walmart nearest to you so you can try the sauce firsthand!
What’s that you say, so how can YOU help? Well I thought you’d never ask! If you have internet access, you can go here to the “Get on the Shelf” website and vote for the sauce via Facebook, OR if you have a cellphone at hand, you can vote via text message! To vote by text (which in my opinion is the easier way) you must simply text the product’s code, 4955, to the number 383838 . Let’s help our favorite sassy chef on Teen Mom reach some culinary dreams!
Danielle Cunningham was put under fire recently when her son was left with his “Glammy” (aka Danielle’s mom, Casey) for what was a longer-than-should-have-been visit in some fans’ eyes. Pushing through all of this, it seems as though Casey and Danielle have worked out their differences (for now) in the mission to get along for both their own mother-daughter relationship and for the always handsome, Jamie Jr!
Danielle posted that she got in contact with her mother yesterday, March 9th, and that she plans to take Jamie Jr to lunch today! No word yet on if she’ll be splurging from her ViSalus Smoothie Diet, which has helped her lose over 20 lbs of that nasty baby weight she just hadn’t been able to rid her body of! She says she’ll also spend the rest of the day hanging out with her spunky one-year-old, and she’ll also be taking “A LOT” of pictures! Danielle also let us in on the fact that she didn’t get just one, but she’s recently gotten TWO jobs at two different gas stations to help support her little man. She says she’s finally getting her life together and that she couldn’t be any happier about it! Danielle asks that only positive comments come her way as she gets back on track to being the best mommy she can be for little Jamie Jr!
