Despite the fact that most of them were only featured on one episode of the MTV show, the girls of 16 & Pregnant still continue to intrigue us! This week has been especially full of ’16 & Pregnant’ news!
The Ashley has broken it all down into one neat lil’ post for ya’ll. Here’s what’s happening in the ’16 & Pregnant’ world:
As Star/Radar Online told us this morning, Ebony Rendon-Jackson of Season 1 has checked herself into rehab. Of course, this is only a few months after her baby was taken away and she was arrested for the big “poop on the floor” unsafe living conditions scandal. Drugs and drug paraphernalia were found in their house at the time of arrest.
According to the article, she spent a week in rehab for depression following the arrest.
“They put her on medication and released her, and I didn’t feel you can give her help in a week’s time and then she’s better,” Ebony’s dad told Star. “She needs to continue getting help.”
Josh and Ebony have been able to see their daughter, Jocelyn, through supervised visitation. They were supposed to appear in court today to see if a custody arrangement could be worked out.
In other news, Markai Durham of Season 2 has announced that she and her baby-daddy James have split. (‘Member James? He was the white boy with dreadlocks that basically mumbled throughout the entire episode so they had to use subtitles so that we could understand him!)
“Its true [that] me and James are not together…we broke up without [any] bad blood or animosity towards one another. We are just both getting our life together is all. We have a lot to accomplish. He is still apart of [daughter Zakaria’s] everyday life as if we were together,” she told her Facebook fans.
Yawn. Call me when there’s a paternity scandal or you and another girl are fighting over the dreadlocked wonder. (But I do give him props for actually sticking around and being a good dad, unlike most of the ’16 & Pregnant’ dads!)
Also in the news today is Season 1’s Whitney Purvis. TMZ just broke the story that Whitney has dumped her baby-daddy Weston for being a lazy turd.
“[He] was gone all the time,” she told TMZ. “He wouldn’t come home until 3AM in the morning. I was home with the baby and he was nowhere to be found.”
Apparently, Whitney and the baby have moved back in with her parents (um…wasn’t her mom arrested for meth possession a few months back? I think I’d stick with the lazy boyfriend rather than meth-head mom, but that’s just me.)
Thanks for keeping things entertaining, ladies!
