I am so beyond tired of people telling Chelsea to follow her head, not her heart, because she's never, ever going to do that until she has to pay real consequences for doing so. She isn't bright enough, apparently, to catch on to the fact that her beloved baby daddy only seems to show up when the cameras are running and when there's something in it for him. The way she cutesy-flirts with that loser makes me what to gag.
Her dad needs to step in and tell her that Adam may NOT live in the house he's paying rent on--he pays the rent, he makes the roommate rules. And he's got to stop handing out the cash NOW. I realize he's concerned about his granddaughter and daughter, so fine--he can offer groceries (but NOT the cash for them), pay the utilities (but NOT provide the cash for them) etc. But he doesn't have to keep treating her and her friends to Lady Gaga concerts and stays in hotels--and he really shouldn't. Chelsea is incredibly spoiled, and he does her no good at all by continuing to allow her to behave any way she wants and still supporting her. Somehow, I think Adam would have far less appeal if she had to give up everything else to have him, and I further think Adam would find Chelsea less appealing if she didn't come with a house, free groceries, camera time etc.
I also agree that she could use some therapy. She keeps saying that Aubrey is happier when she has both her parents. I wonder if Chelsea is somehow trying to recreate the family she had before her parents divorced. She doesn't seem to understand that while her parents, though they spoil her, seem to be rational adults, Adam is just a huge user-loser, and it sets a terrible example for Aubrey to watch her mother allow him to pop in and out of their lives.
I also noticed it's now her knee that's keeping her from studying for the GED. I know ACL injuries are painful, but how many excuses have we heard from Chelsea, first about why she couldn't finish a high school degree and now about why she can't study for her GED? Her father should lay down the law on that one too--give her a specific date by which she must pass the GED or he's not paying her rent anymore. She can move back in with him or her mom, but if she's not responsible enough to live on her own and complete the GED, then she needs to move back home until she does so. The truth of the matter is, she's not responsible enough, and it's sickening that they just keep supporting her utter lack of responsibility. She doesn't have a job nor is she in school--she ought to have plenty of time to study for the GED, even if she is also taking care of a child. I know lots of single mothers who attend college classes and work and care for their children with a heck of a lot less support than Chelsea has.
