16 & Pregnant | Jordan Cashmyer News: Sex work, addiction, and arrest (NSFW)

Some disturbing new information has come to light about Jordan Cashmyer, the sad girl with perpetually-wet hair from Season 5 of 16 & Pregnant.  Jordan was easily one of the more depressing stories of the franchise: drifting around Baltimore with her baby daddy Derek Taylor, jobless, homeless, and 8 months pregnant. In the episode, she and Derek clearly blame this situation on her parents, who kicked Derek out of their house when he lost his job. Jordan, mega-stupidly, chose to follow him straight into destitution. We saw the teenagers go from sleeping on a friend’s couch, to a different friend’s floor, to sleeping on the shitty (literally) living room floor of an estranged family friend, then picking up and moving to Texas to mooch off Derek’s dad.

On 16 & Pregnant, we learn that Jordan had always wanted to join the military, and Derek had a full-ride scholarship that he gave up when Jordan got pregnant. He stayed productive though, mostly by playing video games with his friends, thinking about planning to look for a job someday, maintaining a negative balance on his bank account, and watching his pregnant girlfriend cry.

Nasty hot dogs

Sounds like a full day

Don’t hate on Derek just yet though: the catch-up episode reveals that the couple has broken up and, plot twist- Jordan has been working as a stripper and Derek is raising their daughter Genevieve as a single dad while attending college. If his Twitter is anything to go by, Derek still spends a ton of time with his daughter, and seems devoted to fatherhood.

To be fair, his baby mama Jordan seems devoted as well – to heroin and crack.

Radar reports that Cashmyer was arrested in June of this year when police, on a welfare check, found heroin needles and crack pipes in the hotel room where she was living. Then, two weeks later, her boyfriend called for another welfare check when he couldn’t wake her up by pounding on the locked door of their room. Jordan finally answered the door, naked, for the police, who then uncovered cocaine and more heroin. Unsurprisingly, she was arrested again.

As you’ve probably deduced by now, since the airing of her episode, Jordan seems to have followed a very destructive path.

Radar reported last week that, according to “a close family member”, Jordan’s decline really started when baby Genevieve was about 6 weeks old, and she’s done several stints in rehab since. This same family member said that the experience of being on MTV was detrimental for Jordan. It’s believable, too: around the time of the airing of her episode, Jordan told InTouch about her severe mental health problems, which included a suicide attempt after Genevieve was born.

Unfortunately, it appears that Jordan is into a lot more than drugs. Last week, Starcasm revealed sad photos of Jordan advertising herself as a sex worker from a dirty motel bathroom. Honestly, the pictures are shocking. It looks like someone put a picture of a normal person through a Crack Addict SnapChat filter:jordan cashmyer Jordan Cashmyer

For further proof that Jordan is an absolute mess, one must look no further than her own public Twitter feed:

I’ll admit, I had to look up was a “paypig” is.

And that pretty much brings us up to date on Jordan Cashmyer. Considering she’s had 2 welfare checks leading to 2 narcotic arrests in the past month, I predict that Jordan is on her way to being the next Valerie Fairman.

I hope she proves me wrong.

      1. What IS a paypig?
      2. I have a hard time blaming MTV for this one. Obviously Jordan was a very emotionally sick girl who made poor life choices (following Derek to be homeless vs staying with her parents). That didn’t start once MTV started filming- and obviously didn’t end once they left. PPD is a hell of an illness and this looks like that gone terribly wrong with the assistance of multiple drugs

      I do, however, blame MTV for all the girls who are on teen mom and live fucked up lives (Jenelle)

        Essentially a “paypig” is a Sugar Daddy within the BDSM community, who gets off on being a slave to the financial demands of their dominant.

        Agree with you on the blaming MTV thing. I think Jordan would be the same person she is today with or without 15 minutes of reality stardom.

          Yep. The majority of the 60+ girls featured on 16 & P were fundamentally broken already.

          No offense to any real TMs, of course, but a lot of teen pregnancies are done for attention – seeking reasons.

          A few of the girls honestly had no intention of getting pregnant, and didn’t want a baby (Amber, Farrah) while others tried time and again to become pregnant and carry a baby to term (Mackenzie Mckee).

          Whether it was to keep a boyfriend in line (Chelsea), or prove they could love something (Jenelle), these girls were already psychologically messed up.
          MTV just chose to exploit what they were offering up.
