    Re: 2/15 Teen Mom Discussion

    Chelsea is one freakin' hot mess. When she sat there crying, "Do you think I did something wrong?" I actually yelled, "YES!" She lives her life by the rule that if something makes you uncomfortable, you should just pretend it doesn't exist. She doesn't tell her father Adam has moved in because she doesn't want to face an argument. She stays out of the tension between Adam and Megan--though she directly caused it by having Adam move in--and when it blows ups, she acts like it can't be her fault or even Adam's, even though it's obviously both their faults. She doesn't like doing the schoolwork she needs to do in order to graduate, so she just gets "distracted" and doesn't do it. She wants to be treated like a grown-up but fails to understand that if you want to be an adult with your own "family" and your own home (that Daddy pays for) and your own career (which she's never going to get because she's never going to finish her high school degree), you have to act like one. Unfortunately, her father seems incapable of truly standing up to her or her lame boyfriend/baby daddy, and all Chelsea can do is whine and cry, so nothing's going to change.

    It made me furious to see Adam shake the very kitten Chelsea had just asked him to watch out for. Chelsea, you idiot, people who take pleasure in frightening or hurting animals typically don't treat people any better. He's already back to using texting as a weapon with which to hurt others. If he doesn't get his own way, he's going to be cruel verbally and perhaps one day will make the move to physical cruelty as well. Get yourself and Aubrey away from him, beg your father to let you move home, and once you're there, start working on being a grown-up, so that next time you move out, you won't just be playing house. You'll actually be an adult capable of running a home for yourself and your daughter.

    I missed the cat shaking - maybe there'll be enough internet outrage that it will shed some light on the darkness Chelsea is in!

    Googled and funny that this is what I read -

    How long does it take to get a friggen MRI?

    Thank god Us magazine doesn't care about spoilers. In a recent interview with the magazine Leah revealed that Ali did have a few MRIs, but they still don't know what is wrong with her!

    “Ali has had a couple of MRIs, but we still don’t know anything yet. She’s making improvements with physical therapy. She is trying to stand up on her own, and we are so proud of her!"
    Leah also said Ali's not legally blind like some tabloids suggested. Then why is she wearing glasses on the cover of the magazine? Babies don't wear glasses! I guess we will have to wait until the official episode airs to get the entire story.
    Teen Mom 2: What's Wrong With Leah's Baby? | 2snaps.tv - Pop culture for the masses

    Well, I can understand an MRI being inconclusive, there are so many rare problems - and it does make me grrrr -when I read the line above "babies dont wear glasses Just go to a special needs/ special education in your town, there is a federal mandate to get treatment for babies 0 - 3, at 3 they then go to "school" - blind, deaf, mentally and physically challenged come in all ages -

    Tilden, love your post above. Man, I wish that Chelsea could read that post. Isn't there anyone in her life to give her the straight truth? I was very serioulsy concernced about that guy shaking that kitten. It is a clear warning sign that a baby does not need to be left in his care. I'm very serious about this.


    Angelmum, I am speechless about the MRI reports. So Leah claims they have done several MRI's and don't have a diagnosis? I'm sorry, but I find that difficult to believe. I believe she said it, but I don't know how true it is.

    Maybe she's holding the news for ratings or to sell the story to the highest offer. I hope I'm wrong. A child looks like that and they have no explanation? That's bizarre.

    Wouldn't you think MTV could find her a specialist? If my baby was in that condition, I would not be appearing for photo shoots or doing interviews without holding my baby up and begging for some medical professional to help me find out what was wrong with her. I would do anything to help my baby who has a serious problem. I don't get them. I think she just thinks that everything will be okay with a little physical therapy. She needs to push for the truth. Her condition could have longterm effects. Ignorance is not your friend in situations like this.

    --A baby doesn't need to be left in his care? Heck, clearly a kitten doesn't need to be left in his care. A pet rock doesn't need to be left in his care. He's a devious, mean-tempered loser, and Chelsea's an absolute airhead to continue to allow him in her life. Or Aubree's life. Or the kitten's life. (and it looked to me as if there were two different kittens in that house--oh, yeah, that's just what vapid, vacuous, vacant as a jar Chelsea needs--two more lives to look after when she can't even manage her own). When Chelsea whined that her father always thinks everything is Adam's fault, I wish her father hadn't responded that it always has been but instead said, "No, I used to think everything was his fault, but since you keep letting him reduce you to tears and rearrange your life, I'm beginning to think it's at least partially your fault." I was glad that he told her he had to leave when she was shocked that he would while he was still in tears. If you want to run crying to Daddy, child, then start appreciating him. He's over-indulged you beyond belief, and you repay him by siding with a boyfriend who's been repeatedly insulting to you and your friend and referred to your child as a "mistake." I also don't see him begging to get his name back on that birth certificate or to get any parental rights restored. He's just a lazy, sneaky jerk who's looking for a free ride--and someone he can control. He's found both in Chelsea and has no intention of letting anyone or anything interfere with that, not even a kitten. When he referred to himself as Chelsea's "husband," I shuddered. If she's stupid enough to ever, ever accept a proposal from him, her father should immediately sue for custody of Aubree. And the kittens. As for Chelsea being able to read my previous post, at this point, I'm not sure she's capable of reading with any comprehension. If she were, she might be through with high school by this point. Wouldn't you think MTV could find her a specialist? If my baby was in that condition, I would not be appearing for photo shoots or doing interviews without holding my baby up and begging for some medical professional to help me find out what was wrong with her. I would do anything to help my baby who has a serious problem. I don't get them. I think she just thinks that everything will be okay with a little physical therapy. She needs to push for the truth.

    --There is the possibility that Leah is choosing to be vague with the press, because she feels it's inappropriate for the specifics of her daughter's medical condition to be fodder for the popular press. I suppose it's also possible that the baby has a cluster of conditions that just don't have a proper single name or diagnosis. Or that they're getting so many contradictory diagnoses that they don't know what to believe at this point. I am glad she is making some progress, regardless of what's wrong with her.

    MTV made it part of the contract for this season that Leah had to keep the details of the MRI under wraps to the public until the official episode airs...so that is probably why she is being so vague with the tabloids. I'm actually very surprised at how well they've kept the details secret...

    It continues to amaze me that these ugly, bad personality oriented, useless boys get any attention. Adam is just gross both inside and out. Chelsea obviously is a complete fool. She has a great friend who seems to have her head on straight, and she just let her go like that. She even approached her about the rent, and she was willing to pay. Adam saw a free ride to tv and exposure, and a free nest and he is taking advantage of it. She should have started with he getting a relationship with the daughter going before he became a permanent fixture. Now if he leaves, the child is going to suffer. Plus now the child is losing Meghan who she is bonded with.

    What Chelsea is modeling for her daughter is to take abuse from men and not to stand up for the right thing. Standing up for right is a very good thing to learn as a young person. Chelsea's dad should have used that opportunity to explain to Chelsea what that means. It means overcoming your own fear and standing for what is true, fair and right. Sometimes you just have to do it. Even if the consequeneces are painful. When people are always too frightened or selfish to make a stand for right, they turn into miserable people. Sooner or later you have to grow up and make a stand for yourself. I really wonder if Chelsea has that internal compass that directs you to the truth. I haven't seen it.

    If your baby was in what condition?? We have no idea what condition she's in. Probably what she meant by "we don't know anything yet" was that the MRIs didn't explain anything, and they're still trying to figure out what's wrong. If she's trying to stand that's a good sign.

    I get the impression that Chelsea's never really had to stand up for anything, because she's been coddled by her parents. Even when she and Megan were moving into the house Daddy pays for, when Aubree had diarrhea, Chelsea somehow had no extra clothes for Aubree (they were moving--where were the kid's clothes), didn't know what to do, panicked---and Mama to the rescue. She complains about how expensive formula is, and how she eats Ramen, so Daddy forks over some more cash--and off she goes to Starbucks. She has no money for food, yet she goes shopping and has mani-pedis with Megan. She can't focus on schoolwork for more than ten minutes at a time and would rather page through an assignment looking for the answers to the questions, instead of just reading it in its entirety, which would actually be much faster. She can't take a stand, because she's never had to face anything on her own--not bills, not her responsibility for her own education, not one darn thing of any consequence. Given the amount of time we see her off doing one thing or another, she also must have someone with whom she can leave Aubree when she wants some time to herself, and obviously her parents are ready whenever she needs help with the responsibility of taking care of Aubree. She's basically an overgrown toddler and most toddlers aren't capable of taking a stand. They just scream until someone handles whatever they can't, and they don't generally make very good decisions on their own. Unfortunately, Chelsea has a toddler of her own, so her preschool like behavior endangers her as well as Chelsea herself.

    Tilden and Debb70 Great points -

    and add the fact she's on a REALITY show, getting paid to... whine and cry and cause drama...

    no help.

    This is what makes me crazy - these girls need to be educated. But, I do realize that you can lead a horse to water but you cant make them drink (you can tell them they are making bad choices, tell them why they are making bad choices, but, they still will make bad choices)

    so what to do? Put them on a Reality show, make them "stars".
