Teen Mom 2 was a mess tonight. Leah's pregnancy news started to spread. First she told Jeremy, then her mom, then her friend, then Corey. The last one was the most painful.
Last night was just a series of painful, humiliating moments for these moms. Leah's whole situation was just so sad. Usually when you announce a pregnancy, people are thrilled and excited for you. In Leah's case? Not so much. Telling Corey was particularly depressing. He actually cried. It was so painful to watch. Even Leah's mom was depressing.
The look on her face. Shiver. Let's just say I never want to see that look on my dad's face. And even worse? That conversation with her friend where she admits she would leave Jeremy if she weren't pregnant. Um, hello? That's not good!
Memo to Leah: Want the man first. Then want the baby. Trust me when I say that no good ever came from a couple who stayed together for the fetus. Oh Leah. Why must you make such rushed, juvenile decisions?
More from The Stir: ‘Teen Mom 2’ Cancellation Has Been a Long Time Coming, Thanks to Jenelle Evans
Of course, the saddest honor of the evening went to Jenelle. She was trying to prove Andrew was NOT Jace's father. But that conversation over Skype with him was one of the most genuinely depressing things I've ever seen on TV.
Jace isn't a doll. He isn't a puppet or some kind of prop who can be shared or tossed around. He is a real person with real feelings and his mom and dad act like complete children.
They brought him into the world in a ridiculous, immature, and irresponsible fashion. Jenelle couldn't have picked a worse baby daddy if she tried. I didn't buy any of what he said last night. First it seemed like he wanted to get out of child support, then it seemed like he wanted to and was thrilled with the results.
Poor Jace is caught in the middle.
Personally, if I were Jenelle, I would be humiliated and angry at the whole idea of having to take a paternity test. She didn't seem nearly as bothered by it as she should have been.
Call me naive or prudish, but I tend to think it's a good thing to know who the father of your child is. That seems mildly important. Jenelle doesn't seem to think it says anything about her that she doesn't know this vital piece of information. Hmmmm.
The whole thing is just a mess. And now we DO know. Somehow I still don't think the problems will be over.
Were you surprised by the paternity results?
