The much-anticipated Teen Mom 2 Season 5 trailer is here and it’s somehow even more explosive than I imagined! Here’s the clip, posted by MTV earlier today, followed by bullet point highlights for each of the gals:
“You think you know these moms? Just wait.
“This January, they’ve grown up in ways no one expected and their lives are more complicated than ever.
“On Tuesday, January 21st, they’re back and so is their drama.
Teen Mom 2 premieres Tuesday, January 21st, 10/9 Central on MTV.”
Here are each of the cast members with my thoughts on what we can expect from each based on the trailer:
Leah and Corey continue to seek medical treatment for their daughter Ali, who is seen in the clip in an electric wheel chair. Though both are obviously distraught over what appears to be some bad news, Corey remains positive while Leah seems overwhelmed and less optimistic.
Leah and husband Jeremy Calvert argue over finances, something fans will remember was a huge issue with Leah and Corey (and most couples for that matter) as well. In a shocking scene Leah is talking on the phone with someone and says, “He’s going to file for divorce tomorrow.” Noooooooooo!!! I hope Leahmey wasn’t having serious trouble behind the scenes!
In the clip Jenelle reveals that she is pregnant, which shouldn’t come as a big surprise to fans. But, she drops a HUGE bomb when she states quite calmly, “It would be selfish to Jace if I had another child. I decided that I am going to get an abortion.” Wait, what?!? Jenelle had an abortion?!? Or did she just decide at one point to have an abortion before having her miscarriage? Or is this an entirely different pregnancy?!?
And it looks like we will be seeing A LOT of Jenelle’s new boyfriend Nathan Griffith! And apparently he and Jenelle’s mom Barbara Evans didn’t exactly hit it off, judging from the scene featuring the two of them screaming at each other over Jenelle’s heroin use, which ends with Babs yelling, “You know what, F**k you! I didn’t put a needle in her arm!”
Strangely absent front he trailer (and possibly Season 5?) is Jenelle’s husband Courtland Rogers. It will be interesting to see how MTV handles the transition from Courtland to Nathan this season!
Kailyn Lowry Marroquin
Kail pretty much sums up what we can expect from her this season when she says in the clip, “We have a wedding, buying a house, and a baby on the way.” (I love it when she’s getting a sonogram and the always-direct Isaac declares, “Take it out!”)
But, it looks like there was A TON of behind-the-scenes drama surrounding the wedding including conflict with her ex Jo Rivera and the difficult decision whether or not to invite her mother to the ceremony. “I just don’t want my mom to come because I just don’t want pain around my wedding day,” an emotional Kail says in the clip.
I can’t wait to see Kailyn Lowry’s happy ending with Javi Marroquin this season!!! The wedding, the child, the house… all of it! 🙂
With Chelsea Houska it looks like her major story line will be about her ex Adam Lind and his girlfriend Taylor Halbur. In case you missed it, Adam and Taylor had a baby daughter this summer, and I’m sure the concept of “step-mom” and
“step-sister” “half-sister” is going to be difficult for Aubree to get used to and even more difficult for Chelsea!
Plus, it appears that Adam is going after Chelsea in court, more than likely battling for additional custody rights of Aubree. Let’s just hope his jaw-dropping history of run-ins with the law, including three separate DUI arrests, means Chelsea has little to worry about.
