'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Kailyn's Restraining Order Against Jo Is Really Unfair

TV Addict 14

Teen Mom 2The girls of Teen Mom 2 move fast. That's a fact. And season 4 is only in its second episode, but it has already jumped light years from season 3. 

First we have Leah and Jeremy. They have decided to "take things slow" (is anyone else laughing at this?), and she is back on birth control and they are talking. But the ever looming specter of Corey hangs over their relationship constantly, and naturally she is still deciding between them. Sigh.

Meanwhile, Aubrey is doing well in daycare and Chelsea is moving forward in school. But two steps forward, two steps back. She spent most of the episode stressed over potentially being pregnant with Adam's baby. Birth control, people. Look into it. It's a great thing. I swear if sexual education had a goal setting component, girls like Leach and Chelsea would make different choices. Of course, the drama award of the evening didn't go to Leah or Chelsea.

Our constant hero of the drama is Jenelle Evans, and as usual, she brought it. Her boyfriend Gary slept with her old roommate Tori and the two of them broke up. But not before she could stress over Kieffer and who she liked better. Classic line (I am paraphrasing): I am still with you even though he got out of jail so I must like you!

Seriously, Jenelle, come on. Do you even hear yourself? We all know the drama doesn't stop here, too. Jenelle's drama is almost never ending and we can expect season 4 to be full of it.

More from The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Kailyn Lowry's Leaked Wedding Plans Sound HUGE

Her biggest issues seem to be the way she overreacts and changes her mind and isn't honest about her feelings. Judging from the way she cried when he left, she didn't really want him to leave. So here is an idea, Jenelle: Instead of throwing all his stuff around and telling him you want him to leave and you hate him, how about you actually attempt to put on your big girl pants and have a discussion with him? How about you tell him what you REALLY want and attempt some vulnerability?

Of course, Jenelle isn't the only one struggling with intimacy issues and being honest in relationships. Kailyn filed a restraining order against Jo two weeks ago, which meant he wasn't allowed to see his son for two whole weeks. TWO WHOLE WEEKS. Is Jo really THAT bad?

Their fight was off-camera, so I can't pretend to know what went down, and I like Kailyn. But it does seem unfair that she can file some paperwork that keeps a little boy away from his dad indefinitely. How is that a fair system? I get that it's in place to protect women and children, but I also get that it would and probably has been used to manipulate custody cases and gain the upper hand. It just seems wrong.

And it looks like the drama only continues next week ... What did you think of tonight's episode?

I found this article to be extremely judgemental. Since Kailyn and Jo's fight happened off camera you have no idea what occurred. Kailyn may have very good reason for getting the restraining order. Also, the girl's name is Leah, not Leach. Spell check. Look into it.

I don't know if it was unfair or not...but I do remember that last week Kailyn had bruises on her arm from the altercation (alleged altercation). 
I would also like to add that what little (VERY LITTLE) respect I had for Leah just flew out the window! She's a manipulative little brat. I got the feeling that she was trying to manipulate Jeremy into  either quitting his job or blaming his job for the problems in thier relationship. That girl has some serious issues and she needs to grow the hell up!

I DO NOT THINK HSE WAS UNFAIR. KAILYN NEEDS TO PROTECT HERSELF AND HER SON. SHE IS A VERY PRETTY YOUNG LADY AND DESERVES BETTER. SHE NEEDS A MAN THAT LOVES HERE AND HER SON NO MATTER WHAT. SHE DID THE RIGHT THING, CAUSE I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING. I DONT BLAME HER SHE DONT NEED TO LET SOME MAN OR MATTER OF FACT, ANY MAN OR BOY HIT HER. SHE IS A VERY SWEET PERSON FORM WHAT I CAN TELL BY WATCHING THE SHOW. I AM ON YOUR SIDE KAILYN. HANG IN THERE AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK YOU ARE DOING TO RAISE YOU SON. HE IS SO CUTE AND HANDSOME. DONT LET NO ONE RUN YOUR LIFE AND DONT LET NO ONE HIT ON YOU

I THIN LEAH AND COREY SHOULD WORK ON THINGS AND TRY TO WORK THEM OUT FRO THE GIRLS. LET ME TELL YOU BOTH THINK YOU GOT IT BAD, WELL I HATE TO TELL YOU; BUT IF ME AND MY HUSBAND CAN WORK OUT OUR PROBLEMS OF 5 YEARS THAN YOU BOTH CAN TOO. NO, IT IS NOT EASY, BUT GOD DID NOT DAY IT WAS GOING TO BE EASY. YOU JUST HAVE TO PUT YOUR TRUST AND FAITH AND BELIEVE IN GOD AND THINGS WILL WORK OUT FOR YOU. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE HARD HARD TIME IN THE PAST 5 YEARS THAT IT GOT TO THE POINT OF GETTING A DIVOICE AND GOING OUR SEPERAT WAYS. WE TALKED AND PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND WE ARE STILL WORKING AT IT. THAT IS WHAT IT TAKES IS STAYING TOGETHER AND IF YOU HAVE TO GO TO SOME THAT CAN HELP.  I REALLY DO BELIEVE LAH AND COREY SHOULD GET SOME HELP AND TRY ON GETTING BACK TOGETHER. IT WILL TAKE TIME BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT EXPECIALLY IF YOU STILL LOVE EACH OTHER. I CAN TELL YOU TO LOVE EACH OTHER AND THE GIRLS ARE SO PRECIOUS AND THEY NEED YOU TWO TOGETHER NOT APART.

JENELLE DOES NEED HELP. SHE NEEDS TO THINK ABOUT IF SOMETHING WAS TO HAPPEN TO HER MOM WHERE WOULD HER SON GO. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT NOTHING HAPPENS TO ANY OF THEM. JENELLE, YOU NEED TO WAKE UP AND GET ON THE RIGHT TRACK AND STAY OFF OF THE DRUGS AND HELP YOU MOTHER WITH YOUR SON. HE IS IN GOOD HANDS AND I DO NOT BLAME YOUR MOTHER GETING UPSET WITH YOU WHEN YOU DO THE THINGS YOU DO. YOUR SON SHOULD BE YOUR NUMBER ONE IN YOUR LIFE AND NOT THE DRUGS. MY QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU IS : WHAT WOULD IF SOMETHING DID HAPPEN TO YOU MOTHER AND YOU GOT PUT IN JAIL FOR A VERY LONG TIME ; WHERE WOULD YOUR SON GO? TRUST ME YOU WOULD NOT WANT HIM IN FOSTERCARE. I KNOW CAUSE THAT IS WHERE I WAS RAISED. I DID NOT HAVE MY PARENTS AND YOU KNOW IT HURTS TO THIS DAY. YOU NEED TO GET SOME HELP AND GROW UP AND BE AN ADULT NOT A KID RO STOP ACTING LIKE A KID ANY WAY. RESPECT YOU MOTHER, SHE IS THE ONE THAT RAISED YOU AND BROUGHT YOU UP. I HAVE TWO WONDERFUL BOYS OF MY OWN. I WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR THEM, BUT I WOULD NOT GO ON DRUGS. THAT IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. YOU MOTHER IS DOING A GREAT JOB, AND HONESTLY SHE IS SUPPOSE TO BE THE GRANDPARENT AND ENJOYING HER LIFE WHICH SHE PROBABLY DOES IN JOY LIFE, WHEN YOU DO THE THINGS YOU DO THAT IS NOT GOOD; DOES NOT HELP MATTERS.  STRAIGHTING UP  AND THINK ABOUT YOUR SON AND NOT DRUGS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND KEEP YOU ALL SAFE.

I don't think Kailyn is innocent...There have been may times where she hit and cursed out Jo for no reason...she needs help... They both push each others buttons for reactions, but more her then him...that restraining order was totally unnecessary in my opinion. If she is mad at him visa versa she doesn't need to speak to him or even see him. But to keep a son and father away from each other is complete crap! Janelle is never going to  change. She is a lost cause. Loser mentality and loser actions. She is just a plain loser. Leah is a dumb idiot. She annoys me beyond belief...I am glad tho that people are finally seeing thru her bull crap ways and seeing her for what she is really worth. She is a liar and a cheater and a manipulator. I feel bad for all the guys involvedwith her dumb ass. And Chelsea...well we all know how hopelessly idiotic she gets with Adam :( I don't think she will ever learn. She lives in a constant fantasy...I'm sorry but he is not your prince charming....yuck

Seriously, the ALL CAPS remarks is uncalled for!


Anyway....Kailyn only act a fool when Jo is with someone else & ignoring her. It's ok when she's w/ Jordan or Javi. The girl is always with someone who's name starts with the letter J. Even though it wasn't on camera, it was mutual BS in front of their child. They both need to grow the f#@k up! Leah needs to be held for 72 hrs. The girl doesn't know her head from her azz. She wants her cake & eat it, too. Chelsea makes me want to vomit every time I see her f@#k up hair. It looks like a mop on her head! She needs to get over Adam & understand that she's just a booty call. Jenelle- she needs to be committed since her meds aren't working. Poor Jace's only hope in life is Barbara. That's saying alot since she raised Jenelle.

Kailyn blew it way out of proportion! She is jealous and insecure because of Jo's new girlfriend (didnt you see the prior episodes) and she freaked when the girl was there with Jo and the baby. But its ok she has her boyfriend over there (probably sleeping over there) while she her son is there too? Her feelings got the best of her. Jo is more level-headed than her and I like her but that kind of protection order was a little much. Jenelle is just sad. I wish she would focus on that sweet little boy. Leah, oh my..you know shes going to have like 6 kids by age 25 and probably not with the same fathers.. Shes sweet and a good mom but whats up with liking someone and then having to get engaged and knocked up in 6 months to validate a relationship?? Shes just young and I think her and Corey could have worked it out-yes he was a stubborn guy and Im sure its hard to get over someone cheating on you a week before your wedding (so I cant blame his hesitation) but I think they are both so young, its not going to be easy but I think it could have worked. She is so insecure and needs attention constantly I wish she would have stayed in school and got back with Corey-but who quits school because of Ali's demanding care/appts then decides another baby would be easier to manage? Oy vey!
