'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Is Kailyn the Only One on This Show With a Brain?

Kailyn LowryTeen Mom 2 this season seems focused on one thing: Marriage. Tonight's double episode was a biggie for three of the four girls (and one baby daddy) in terms of serious relationships and marriage. And, naturally, the only one making good decisions is Kailyn. Seriously, what is it with these girls and rushing into marriage? It wasn't bad enough that they rushed into parenthood?

Leah and Jeremy had their rushed wedding and my heart broke just a little for Jeremy standing there, totally in love, while it was obvious that Leah's little head was spinning with feelings for Corey. Later, she hit Corey up for more child support even though she and Jeremy admittedly make three times what he makes. Corey took it better than I would have because honestly? How unfair is that?

This wasn't the only sad portion of the night, of course. Poor Chelsea was absolutely broken hearted over Adam's new girlfriend. Some of the saddest moments of the two shows came when she was crying over it.

We also got a chance to see Adam with a man I presume was his father. He called Chelsea irresponsible and selfish. That is RICH. Ever since dating this new girl, Adam is all about Aubrey. But where was he the rest of the time? Certainly he was never behaving as he should have. Certainly he wasn't acting like a dad. So why now? Oh yeah. There is a girl involved.

Meanwhile Chelsea has been there for the baby. She has been mom through and through. How dare ANYONE call her the immature or selfish one? Give me a break.

Speaking of immature and selfish, Jenelle and Gary got engaged. Of course, that went well. He kicked in her door -- Gary has the worst anger problem. Then they both went to jail for their fight. Awesome. Since we all know the outcome of this particular disaster, there is really no point in even discussing it. It's a mess and no engagement should be so casual. No one should ever ask if they're going to be happy with the other person and no one should get engaged when they already have so many issues. If you are getting engaged, you damn better know the answer to that question.

Sometimes it seems like the only girl in this show with any backbone is Kailyn. She has found herself a truly stand-up guy in Javi, but she isn't going to jump on into marriage without discussing all her options and being responsible. Yes, they went to Vegas, and yes, they talked about it, but they ultimately decided against it. Good on her.

If anyone has a chance at long lasting love, it's Kailyn. She actually thinks things through and honors her feelings and her son's feelings. What a novel concept!

Sometimes this show makes me crazy. Good luck to Leah and Jenelle. They are going to need it.

Do you think the girls are rushing into things?

I can't say that I completely agree with you regarding Kailyn's sensibilities. She would have gone to Vegas and gotten married if the test plans did not fall through. She has anger issues, control issues and can be quick to violence. I am quite sure she started the violence with Joe who took the heat for hit because he pushed her off of him. She seems to have no real concern for Isaac's need to be close to his father either. The simple fact is that she did indeed marry this guy and she is pregnant with his child already. None of them seem to have learned anything by the experience. I actually think they keep doing things like getting married and now pregnant again with the hope that their show will be extended. They are probably becoming quite dependent upon the celebrity status and income that the show provides for them.

My biggest issue tonight was with Adam. He reminds me so much of my son's dad it's sickening! After we broke up he didn't see our son for almost 2 whole years....and the only reason that he came around when he did was because I took him to court for child support and he decided he wanted to finally act like a dad.....because he wanted to impress one of his girlfriends! When she was around he suddenly became "superdad".  Which was GREAT for my son, but when they broke up he was gone out of his son's life again. Chelsea is not my favorite...BUT I will say that even though she talks baby talk (and it annoys the shit out of me that she does that...lol) she is a GREAT mom. 


Jenelle: I am so over her


Leah: *smh* She does everything fast so I'm not surprised that she's jumping the gun. I almost choked when she actually had the nerve to call Corey and ask for more money but wanted to keep it out of court! WTF? Seriously? She wanted to keep it out of court because I'm sure the judge would have said something along the lines of "Do you want him to pay ALL your bills so you don't have to or what? She is so manipulative! It drives me nuts!


Kailyn: My respect for that girl shot up so many points when she and Javi decided NOT to get married just because they were in Vegas. Good for them both for being responsible adults and not making a hasty decision.

She gets mad at joe for even having a girlfriend and here she is about to secretly marry a guy and move her kid away from his dad before finishing school. Smart. Also, you don't ask your two year old inappropriate questions regarding your love life.

Jenelle: I can not stand her! She never thinks about her son! All she cares about is being in a relationship and never the right ones. She should just stop caring about men and focus on her son!

For sure... Way too young and as for Leah..As a single Mother myself..she kinda screwed Cory over with the Child Support thing...NOT KOOL!!! He loves his girls and is there for them!!! She already has one divorce...She keeps taking about she just wants a family... REALLY!!!


Adam is such a ...... I just can't stand him...Chelse needs to finish school and forget about the loser...


Kailyn...Glad she didn't get married just because she was in Vegas...She needs to give Joe a break.. He loves his son and is there


Janelle... REALLY!!!! Gorw up and stop worring about the next guy, new boobs and getting high.. Start worring about your son... People like you make me sick!!!

@Reality Tattle if you opened yourself to other outlets besides the show you would've heard that Kailyn has admitted that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and she apologized for the incident on multiple occasions before that episode aired. Kailyn has sought professional help for the disorder, and if you know anything about bipolar disorder you know that unless a person is on medication they are prone to random mood changes and random acts of violence, I know this because I have a few friends who suffer from bipolar disorder. With all of that said I respect Kailyn because she's not rushing into anything without first thinking of her son who should be her number one priority. She seems to be the only teen mom from season 2 who has her head straight.

kailyn aint that smart..she gets mad at jo for bringing his girl around but yet this is the SECOND guy she brought round isaac with only dating the guys maybe a month. she stalks jos life and stays in his love life. its not her business just as well as it aint jos business bout her love life, only if it has any affect on isaac. i personally dont like kailyn. especially moving isaac away and saying " youll see daddy in the summer" seriously kailyn what are you thinking. you cant take isaac away from jo when jos in his life and iy not affect him. kailyn is very selfish on that. and jenelle is just stupid lol enough said on her.

I don't agree about Kailyn being the only sensible one or whatever was said about her. She just got pregnant with her SECOND kid and what not even 22 yet? And by a different father? I'm 21, and don't understand why young people think its ok to get pregnant or get someone pregnant in the first place, let alone why they think its ok to just move on to the next person after that.

I have to disagree as well about Kailyn being the only one having her head on straight. While I think she thinks things through more than the other moms on the show, I cringed last night hearing her say that Isaac could see his father "during the summer". How messed up! Jo is actually in his life, and makes more than just a small effort...unlike someone like hmmm Janelle?? Yes, Kailyn has issues and had acknowledged it, and I support her in that regard. I think it just bothers me that she seems to think so little of Jo and how he feels about situations. It's completely ok for her to have a "live-in" boyfriend but Jo's girlfriend can't be around Isaac? Just doesn't seem right to me.

Kailyn acts just as dumb as da rest of the girls! She has double standards when it comes to her and Joe. Joe gets a girlfriend and she ready 2 take away his rights because she jealous. But its OK 4 her 2 have a boyfriend, move him in and get married n move her n Joe son around the country? She used 2 be my favorite bt she just got so spiteful when Joe rejected her. SMH
