'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Leah Calvert's Fast Marriage Makes Sense Now

TV Addict 29

Teen Mom 2One of the things that is great about Teen Mom 2 versus other reality shows is that the stories tend to be told in their entirety. Of course, this can also sometimes mean stories get old, and one prime example of this is the relationship between Chelsea Houska and her baby daddy, Adam.

Seriously, WHY is she still crying over this deadbeat loser sack of poop? He has been nothing but rude and hateful to both her and Aubrey, and the only person who seems to care about Chelsea's well being is her father. It's infuriating to watch her go back to him again and again and watch the same scenario play out again and again.

Maybe this is the last time, but I doubt it. That was sort of the theme of tonight -- maybe it's the last time. But I doubt it.

More from The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Leah Messer's Divorce Sounds a Lot Like Kim Kardashian's (VIDEO)

There was Jenelle Evans making a "pact" not to smoke marijuana (is it REALLY that hard just not to smoke?), and she was in trouble with the law and narrowly staying out of jail.

Kailyn was continuing her drama with Jordan, too afraid to dump him, too annoyed to keep him.

Then, of course, there was Leah. We all know what happens with Leah. We all know she marries her Lance Bass lookalike Jeremy Calvert and the two are pregnant within the year. But watching their courtship is fascinating.

It's obvious he is way, WAY into her. He flirts with her, smiles at her, takes her on dates, and obviously just adores her. But one of the saddest parts of the episode came when he sent her flowers for her first day at school.

The gesture was sweet, but what Leah said was just awful. "No one has ever bought me flowers before." She is a mother of two and no one has ever bought her flowers. That just breaks my heart. Before you even think about a man in a romantic way, flowers are part of the deal. Meanwhile she is having some guy's babies with no flowers? No wonder she married Jeremy.

That was sort of the OTHER theme of the night, one man after the other behaving badly, from Jace's "dad" who no one has heard from in a year to Chelsea's "boyfriend." What is wrong with these boys?

The men on Teen Mom 2 need to grow up.

Do you think flowers are THAT big a deal?

gestures of love and kindness in a relationship are always a big deal.

I think it was nice seeing Jace happy to be spending time with his mom, I feel like he is better off without his dad I remember how big of a d-bag during 16 and preg. It was so sweet when Jeremy got Leah flowers, such a sweet surprise. I feel bad that Chelsea is so heart broken over someone that treats her like such crap and says she is nice to have around during the day but not when I want to be with my friends.... I feel so sad for these girls I know their pain with my kids.

Flowers are absolutely a big deal. The small gestures sometimes speak the loudest.

Great recap. However, one small bone to pick. While I find Jenelle to be SO annoying and immature, questioning why she can't just "stop smoking weed" is really kind of a rude thing to say. While there is some argument about the addictive nature of marijuana, there is no argument about the fact that once you use weed and it becomes a part of your daily life, it can be very difficult to give up and can be a very real (though unhealthy) coping mechanism. Do I think Jenelle should continue smoking? No. Do I think we should look at this as a possible addiction and definite coping strategy as we encourage her to stop? Yes.

Flowers are a big deal of you're into em... I think it would be more of a romantic gesture if my man brought me a vs pink brady jersey..lol but that's just the way to my heart. But as far as the dads of teen mom..atleast Cory takes care of those girls and loves them genuinely. ..yeah getting that truck instead of a safer home is def selfish..we all have our faults. I understand why Chelsea is like that with Adam. She can't see herself with anyone else. Society has painted a picture into her mind that she should be with the father of her child. She's afraid of moving on and then Adam wants to step up and ruin it.. I so get her..in some way I've been there only once me and my man got back together after almost 2 years apart we stayed together and had another little girl. I understand jenelle too..she is so depressed with the way her life is and she feels like smoking pot is her escape..for that hour of high she has no worries..she's just chill. I really don't see harm in it aside from it being illegal.. she's not doing damn crack. And kaylin ..

Kailyn ** come on no one cares about your drama w Jordan..the kid is boring..

If I were Cory I never would have bought her flowers either. She cheated on him multiple times, worked his ass off for her and their daughters and she seemed so unappreciative on the show. I don't know them and that could be due to editing, but of the cheating part is true that would have been enough to make me not to work on the relationship or be romantic. It's annoying how every media outlet takes her side when she's the one who cheated multiple times including right before their wedding.

If you really looked into it and didn't just watch the show you'd know that Cory cheated too. So I don't think Leah should take all the blame. They both made mistakes and their relationship was just too far gone.

I really wish hubby would buy me flowers. It happened once after like 5 months of hinting that it would be really sweet if he did.
