'Teen Mom 3' Recap: Briana Should Have Listened to Her Mom

Stuck in Reality 13

Teen Mom Briana DeJesusI keep saying that Briana DeJesus is one of the luckiest teenagers on television. The Teen Mom 3 star has a mom who will do anything for her. But it's not always easy listening to your mom, especially when you ARE one. And tonight that bit one reality star in the butt. Wait, make that two reality stars got a lesson in mother knows best!

After her epic fight with her parents on last Monday's show, Mackenzie Douthit had to make amends and listen to her mom's wishes about boyfriend (now husband in real time) Josh McKee. She ended up swallowing her pride and asking Josh to hang out with her family instead of running off to spend time with him. Not easy, but it was Briana DeJesus who really suffered on this week's episode.

More From The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Mackenzie Douthit Risks Her Life for a Baby

Roxanne DeJesus has been telling her baby girl that she should focus on school and her daughter instead of chasing after boys, especially a boy named Jacob who has been calling Briana non-stop. So what did Briana do? She decided she'd hang out with Jacob, but she was going to do it without telling Mom. Since she depends on her mom and big sister Brittany to drive her around, Briana even had to convince a friend to double with her to accomplish this down-low date.

It's only after all that, after introducing her little girl to a new guy, that Briana discovers Jacob has been dating another girl! To make matters worse? She can't even turn to her mom for support because she lied to her about seeing him!

Somebody should have listened to her mom, huh?

At least Briana wasn't completely involved with this jerk. Katie Yeager is nursing a broken heart after fiance Joey Maes dumped her and told her he's already moved on. It turns out the new girlfriend has a baby daughter of her own, and on Joey's first custody visit, the new girl is front and center at his four-wheeler race.

It was good to see Katie get some time on her own, especially after she admitted she'd never spent more than three hours away from her daughter. But Joey's jerk side came out when she asked to come over and breastfeed during his weekend so her breasts didn't get engorged and she could keep up her milk supply. He said no ... which bit him in the butt when Molli cried inconsolably because she wanted to nurse to fall asleep.

Guess Joey should have listened to his daughter's mom in that case.

As for Alex Sekella, it was a bittersweet evening. Her daughter turned 1, and we got to see her Dad make an appearance to celebrate his granddaughter's birthday. The person we did not see was Matt McCann who never answered Alex's texts to come see his daughter on her big day.

What did you think of Jacob? Did you see why Roxanne and Brittany had been warning Briana away?

Brianna might have a great support system but her mom is slamming it into her daughters heads how horrid men are. It's not healthy. She is going beyond teaching them to be independent and making sure they will never have a healthy relationship with a man. Unfortunately nova will probably be taught the same.

Katie is a damn cry baby. I can't stand that idiot. She is incredibly selfish and ungrateful. I don't know why this site hates on Joey. He might need to check his temper but he gave that little brat everything. And f no she shouldn't be able to go breast feed during his time. That's the most ridiculous bullshit I've heard all day. If her boobs hurt she can invest in a pump. Or cry out the excess liquid. Their daughter has separated parents now. She will have to adapt and learn to go to sleep without a boob in her mouth. And she will, kids adapt very easily.

Briana's mom needs to cut the umbilical cord already. Briana HAS to make her own mistakes. Our jobs as parents is to teach our children TO THINK....not WHAT to THINK. Whether the guy was a dick or not (which he was) was a lesson that BRIANA had to learn for herself. If she'd listened to her mom she would have always wondered "what if"?... As far as Joey and Katie go....I'm not sure which one I dislike more. Katie should NOT have behaved that way and Joey has no business bringing a girl he barely knows around his daughter. Did anyone else notice that "new girlfriend" didn't pay attention to her own child while Joey was riding?! Joey's dad was taking care of her...seriously?

I don't get why the author loves Katie so much. When she threw that cup of coffee all over him while the baby was sitting in the carseat by his feet?! I don't care if it wasn't hot, that behavior is abhorrent.

Oh my... i love Katie. She is my favorite. I cried with her when her and Joey got into that fight and he's yelling at her and whipping the baby around and the baby's crying and Joey just yells and tries to take her away.... throwing the coffee though. that was dumb on her part.  Alex  i feel like she dosnt give a crap about her kid all she cares about is showing her off. MAckenzie acks like no more than an irresponsable older sister. Brianna, i liked her until this episode. She apparently is just worried about finding a daddy for her baby. She probably shouldnt have snuck around behind her moms back to introduce her baby to this new guy who is a cheater... smart girls.

Ali parker. you clearly never breastfed... being away from your kid overnight can really mess your supply up. Pumping isnt the most effective way.

I don't think it's fair to expect Brianna not to be interested in men at all. I agree her daughter should be priority but that doesn't mean that she doesn't deserve to find someone that makes her happy. So Jacob was a jerk but I'm sure there is someone out there that she can find happiness with. She is an adult and needs to make her own decisions.

I feel terrible for Katie. Joey is a complete Jerk the way he put her down and yelled at her all the time. She didn't deserve that. Then to suddenly break off the engagement and immediately move on to another woman? He obviously cares more about himself than his family. They both still said they loved each other but he didn't want to try to make it work which is just selfish. Just because he pays the bills doesn't mean he should be able to disrespect the mother of his child whenever he feels like it. I hope she moves on and finds someone who will treat her right

i think the moms have their own irritating moments but i cant stand mckenzie or brianna. mckenzie lost all my respect when she took gannon out at 10 p.m. and when she stood up for josh to her parents. brianna is just a spoiled little princess who just sits around all day making her mom and sister do everything. katie needs to stop antaganizing joey and cry when he gets mad at her but joey is a big prick who needs to control his anger. alex is my favorite so far. she works three jobs but she needs to spend a little bit more time with arabella, time goes fast.

I like Brianna and Alex. Katie and Mackenzie are too busy dreaming of fairytales to actually live their lives. And Brianna's mom is right. She needs to focus on raising her child and finishing her school She's still young and there will be plenty of men out there for her. She just needs to make sure that she will be able to take care of herself and Nova because you never know what can happen. Alex can't rely on her ex, neither can Katie. I know Mackenzie is now married and all, but there was a time she couldn't rely on him before.

The problen I have with this whole show is that on multiple occassions I have seen children improperly restrained in car seats. during joeys 4 wheeler adventure his daughter received a sunburn (slight but it was there). In the scene when she was crying to be nursed you could see it on her arms and neck. Im sure Mtvs employees and cameras are safely restrained in a car so why not ensure childs safety too?
