Teen Mom 2

Teen Mom 2 just started in the UK. For those who don't know, Teen Mom is a spin off series from the TV show 16 and Pregnant, which (as I'm sure you can guess, lol) is about pregnant teenagers. There is also a series called Teen Mom which follows the lives of four teenagers from the first series of 16 and Pregnant, Maci, Farrah, Catelynn and Amber. Teen Mom 2 is about four more girls, Leah, Chelsea, Kailyn and Jenelle. Here is some info about the girls (based on the series current showing in the UK):

Leah Messer 

Has twins Aliana and Aleeah with Corey Simms. She and Corey had only been together for a little while when Leah got pregnant. At the end of their 16 and Pregnant episode they broke up because Leah cheated on Corey with her ex-boyfriend Robbie. At the beginning of Teen Mom 2 Leah wants Corey back. In last week's episode, Leah is concerned because Ali is developing slower than Aleeah and has taken her to the hospital.

Chelsea Houska

Has daughter Aubree with ex-boyfriend Adam. Adam has treated her badly in the past and didn't seem to want to be involved in Aubree's life. However at the start of Teen Mom 2 he seems to have changed his mind. Chelsea, who has moved into a house with her friend Megan, is missing Adam and considering getting back together with him.

Kailyn Lowry

Has son Isaac with ex-boyfriend Jo. She doesn't have a good relationship with her mum, so Jo's family took her in while she was pregnant. At the beginning of the series, she and Jo have broken up but Kailyn is still living in his house, she's moved to the basement. She's also just started a new relationship with Jordan, a boy who she works with and this is causing tension with Jo and his family. 

Jenelle Evans

Has son Jace with ex Andrew (although there have since been rumours that Andrew might not be Jace's father). At the end of her 16 and Pregnant episode, Jenelle was relying on her mum Barbara's help to raise Jace because she still wanted to do the things she did in her old life eg, going out partying. In Teen Mom 2, Barbara has decided to sue Jenelle for custody of Jace.
              

In the original Teem Mom, my favourite girls were Maci and Catelynn. Maci just seemed the most likeable to me and I thought Catelynn coped well with giving her daughter Carly up for adoption and living in a difficult home environment. I haven't watched Teen Mom 2 enough yet to have a favourite. Teen Mom 2 is on MTV on Wednesdays at 9pm.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
