ICYMI: Teen Mom News Roundup

Hey guys! Sorry for the long weekend off! I had actually planned to have a new recap up Saturday covering RuPaul’s Drag Race, but they don’t seem to add full episodes online yet. So now I’m trying to catch up with Teen Mom news. If you know where to get RuPaul online, please let me know! I’m dying to recap it for you guys.

Anyway, on to the news!


Teen Mom fans hatters infiltrate Kail Lowry’s book signing

A’ight, this one’s kind of a doozy. It appears a member of a private Teen Mom discussion group on Facebook set up a Trojan horse scenario at Kail Lowry‘s recent Hustle & Heart book signing. (You can read our review of this book here.) The woman had two shirts made for the event, one for herself and one for her mother, that read “Team Javi Puta.” The shirts also included photos of Kail from the scene a few weeks ago in which Javi questioned whether she put her children first.

Photo Courtesy of Reddit. If you know which reddit user, let me know. This was sent to me via e-mail.

Someone in the group alerted Kail and the MTV production crew that something nefarious was in the works and the whole thing was caught on camera. The two women got their photo taken with Kail like everyone else, but just as they got behind her they removed their coats to show their anti-Kail shirts. Kail was not aware until after the photo was taken. She seemed to laugh it off on Twitter later that day because the women had to buy her books in order to get the photo.

Not blurring these faces since these women were proud to post this online. (And yes, I need to charge my phone.)

At first, Javi retweeted the photo saying the shirts were “epic.” He later deleted his response and said the following:


Matt Baier gets his own “Being Matt” special

File this under “Gross News.” The Ashley is reporting that Matt Baier from Teen Mom OG is getting his own “Being Matt” special à la all of the grandparents on the show. The Ashley reports that two of Matt’s children, a son aged 13 and daughter aged 18, are being flown in to film with him. Word is the other cast members are not thrilled about this special focusing on such a controversial figure rather than a more “positive” person from the show.

(In my humble TM fan opinion, MTV is looking like it’s on the outs with the Teen Mom franchise. They’re missing the mark with specials and series that could really spice things up, like a new round of 16 & Pregnant followed by a Teen Mom 4 or a series of “Where They At Now?” catch-ups. It seems like MTV is trying to squeeze as much content from this show as they can while spending as little money as possible. Just my $0.02.)

More excerpts leaked from Matt Baier’s book

I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. More Matt news. I might make a separate post outlining more details if you guys like, but the parody Twitter account Amber L. Porkwood has released more chapters from Matt’s book, which I can never remember the name of, so whatever. In the latest leak, we see Matt talk about his “five” children and his drug addiction as well as his baby mamas. You can read the whole thing here on Imgur.

Matt seems to kind of contradict himself on this subject. On the one hand, Matt claims his kids were ripped from his life by their mothers so it’s not fair to judge him for not being around.  On the other hand, he commends the mothers for doing the right thing because he claims he was a serious, hardcore drug addict.

Matt takes special fire at Kelli Nunn, the most outspoken baby mama who has lambasted him in the press and on her Twitter account. He claims Kelli’s daughter is not his. He also uses the fact that she has multiple baby daddies as a way to discredit her, while saying he knows he should be the last one to judge since he, too, has multiple baby mamas. So… make of it what you will. He says when he asked Kelli why she was saying all of this false stuff to the tabloids she answered, “For fun!” (Sounds legit.)

Finally, Matt unleashes on Judy Cornett, the woman who ran the child abuse charity that prompted Matt to write a book under the pseudonym Grey Baker. Curiously, though, Matt writes that he published this book under the name Gary Barker…which is not correct. Anyway, Matt claims that he flew down to visit Judy and determined her whole charity was fraudulent somehow.

Matt claims that he’s always been paid up with child support for his actual kids, but he seems to imply that any kids past the five he acknowledges are not biologically his. Because some of his kids were adopted by their step-fathers, he is off the hook financially.

Jenelle’s House is Done

Well, sort of. It appears there’s a lot left to do to The Land, including adding a driveway and landscaping, but it looks like Jenelle and Co. are officially moved in to their home.

Sophia Abraham starting a web series on MTV

Farrah Abraham’s snapchat has shown her daughter Sophia, 7, filming a web series for MTV. Not sure yet what it will be about, but it appears Sophia is showing off the Sophia Laurent Children’s Boutique as well as her miniature horse Starburst.

I think that’s it for now! Let me know if I missed anything in the comments. Either JerseyGirl or I will be getting you the recap of tonight’s reunion episode: part deux.

Side note: We have temporarily disabled the forums to see if it improves the commenting function. Thank you all for your patience.

    Love the anti-Kailyn shirts! ♡♡ Hilarious!
    How many houses has Jenelle had now? About 5??
    Matt is so disgusting but I feel zero sympathy for Amber!

    • Alli says:

      Those were with other soulmates.. they don’t count #foreverhome! #TilHeLeavesThenIAccuseHimOfBeatingMeLikeTheRestOfThem..

    Kail: Okay so the shirts are sort of funny but I’m just curious who puts that much time/money into that 😂 Kail is right, she cashed in on them so joke is on them.

    Matt: I can’t with him. MTV he isn’t a main character in the show please stop giving him time for these things. As far as the book goes…I don’t even want to read a review on it because that means someone most likely bought it to read it for the review and well, it annoys me that he can profit. He should get an award because he is the ultimate con man. Also I’m pretty certain Amber Porkwood is Matt.

    Sophia: So glad Farrah has more opportunity to pimp her kid out. That little girl is going to be so screwed up, at least the rest of the kids have a semi stable support system.

    Since TMF on FB is a private group, and they really frown upon their stuff getting shared without permission, leaving the Redditor anonymous is probably a good idea.

  4. Nikki says:

    Hey El where is the part 2 reunion recap? I can’t wait to read the comments! 😉

    • El-ahrairah says:

      It’s in the works! 🙂 Thanks!

    • chan says:

      Yeah I miss them too if they aren’t online max 1 day after the episode :$ When it’s days later I’m not really absorbed into the episode anymore and don’t feel the desire to share my thoughts anymore. Not a reproach to you E, you’re doing great with this website, but I’m just more disconnected from it days later :p

      • El-ahrairah says:

        I completely understand. This far after I forget what my original opinions even were lol It’s been a bit of a hectic week, and I had half a mind to just skip Part 2 all together since I’ve fallen behind by just a few days. It’s crazy keeping up with TM shit! I’m getting geared up the the premiere of OG in a few weeks, though, and I’ll def make it a priority to continue having same night or next day recaps. 🙂

    Im by no means team kail. But investing money and time in something like this is kinda sad

    • Baby Daddy #3 says:

      Idk. Tshirts are kinda easy to make. If they lived in the area, I could see it being kinda fun. They DID have to purchase her book tho, which I’m absolutely against. But really I see it as like an investment of like $50/person max, and a fun story.

      Less for the “f you kail” and more for the kicks & giggles.

  6. Leah's Meth Pipe says:

    I think the anti-Kail shirts are great! Her book is cheap as shit online. The cheapest of all the franchise apparently. So it wouldn’t have cost too much. And absolutely worth it.
    The thing I find funny is Kail jokes about it after, but imagine if she had seen the t-shirts BEFORE the photo! She would have hulk raged and refused to film/sign/talk about it. It’s only because it’s done and there’s nothing she can do about it that she’s pretending to take the high road.

  7. Rashida says:

    You have got an excellent blog here! would you like to create some invite posts on my weblog?

  8. Hey there. I just noticed this website and I truly like it. I love to discuss free movie sites at times. Good to be here, thanks!
