Ding-dangit, y’all! The Ashley plum forgot to recap Part 2 of the Teen Mom 2 Season 6 reunion special! The Ashley gave you all the exclusive behind-the-scenes tea from the reunion, but now she will recap the actual episode featuring Leah and Chelsea‘s segments!
The episode starts off at the end of Jenelle‘s segment. Of course, Jenelle has stormed off stage, shoes in hand, after Barbara or Nathan or Dr. Drew or somebody said something she didn’t like. She went classic Amber Portwood circa 2011, screaming “I’m done!” and everything.
Dr. Drew is trying his best to salvage the segment, even though his biggest trainwreck has gone MIA. He explains to Babs and Nathan that they need to get along and stuff, all while Nate sits there with his legs spread wider than Farrah during a on-camera sex romp with James Deen. Ew.
They wheel off Babs and Nate and bring out Chelsea. Let’s be honest here; most of us are going to fast-forward through most of her segment so that we can watch Leah’s segment. (Watching Leah attempt to beat Corey Tyler with a banjo is way more exciting than listening to Chelsea talk about her pig, am I right? Also…that thing about the banjo didn’t happen…I don’t think.)
Chelsea comes out and talks about how much she loves Cole. He’s chosen not to come on camera for the reunion. Of course, instead of applauding Cole for being classy and choosing to stay out of the limelight, Dr. Drew’s acting like a teenage girl and razzing him for not coming out. Drew really wanted to interrogate Cole about Adam but Cole wasn’t having it at all.
They talk about the pig (the actual one, not Adam), before finally getting into the subject of Adam. Chelsea says that they barely talk, and that Adam manipulates Aubree. Drew’s about ready to pounce, so they bring out Adam. He’s just downed a protein shake and is ready to verbally spar with the Good Doctor.
Adam defends his actions and states that he’s not trying to manipulate Aubree. Adam admits that he could have been a better father in the past. Of course, Chelsea brings up Adam’s absence on Father’s Day and Drew’s eyes pretty much light up at the thought of another thing to bring up to start drama.
Adam states that he “needed to get away” so he went on a trip for Father’s Day.
“Sometimes a guy just needs some time to himself, and I don’t have much of that,” Adam says.
Well, you have plenty of gym time and as Nathan informed us this season, “GYM TIME IS MY TIME!”
Adam says that he went away on a trip in lieu of doing what he used to do, which is get drunk, get in a fight and make a scene. Hell, the police department in Adam’s town probably paid for Adam’s Father’s Day trip. It was probably cheaper than processing him through the system like they usually have to do.
Chelsea brings up the fact that Adam has a ton of time for himself. After all, he doesn’t really work, doesn’t go to school or do anything. Adam admits that he does have time (even time to do abs!) He also states that he’s not just trying to act like a good dad because of the show. Chelsea says that Adam isn’t any better than he was before, and she is worried about Adam’s alcoholism.
Adam insists that he has never had a DUI. (Wait…um..what now?! I guess he forgot about those three DUI arrests he had from 2013 and earlier.) Dr. Drew insists that Adam is an alcoholic but Adam says that the years-long period where he was a drunk driving mess was just a “bump in the road” of his life, and that he’s ready to move on.
Since Adam’s not really getting all fired up about being called an alcoholic like Drew had hoped, he next brings up the fact that Aubree wants to call Cole “Daddy.” Drew’s sure that this topic will get Adam to start throwing chairs on stage, but, again, Adam doesn’t take the bait. He answers very maturely, stating that he’s happy that Cole’s a positive influence in Aubree’s life.
Wait…what now? The Ashley needs a minute to adjust to the new and improved Adam. Are we sure that MTV didn’t send him off to Leah’s magical rehab/not rehab clinic for some therapy? He’s like a whole new man– and he’s wearing a full-sleeved T-shirt!
Drew is totally disappointed by now, so he brings up Adam’s harem of hoes.
“There was definitely a problem with women,” Adam says, stating that he’s taken a break from dipping it into random broads from the gym and whatnot.
They next wheel out Chelsea’s dad, Randy, to hopefully spice up the segment. Adam looks like he needs a stick to bite on to keep him from roid ragin’ and punching the set wall. Drew then brings up that he “heard a rumor” (um…in the seventh grade locker room?) that Adam got a vasectomy. Adam confirms that rumor, and Drew congratulates him on a job well done!
Adam says that he had to get snipped because, well, bitches be crazy! He said that girls were trying to get knocked up by him so that they could get their name in the tabloids. Um…taking on the spawn of Adam for the rest of your life just so you can see your name up in a Radar Online story seems like kind of an extreme measure, no?
Apparently, there’s some broad out there that is insisting that Adam’s her baby-daddy,but Adam denies that he’s the father because, well, obviously, he was in jail at the time the kid was conceived. Isn’t it nice when your being a hooligan helps you out of a paternity case?
Drew realizes that these people are giant bores, so he shuffles them off the stage. It’s time to bring out Leah and, what with a divorce, two trips to rehab/non-rehab and several potential catfights on the horizon, the Doctor is practically drooling.
Leah comes out with her hair brushed and her eyes open, which is something we haven’t seen since, well, Season 4 or so. Drew does his best to kindly recap the trainwreck that has been Leah’s life for the past few months, and eventually he just lets the clips do the talking.
Drew is tip-toeing around the whole popping pillseses problem, so he asks if Leah’s following through with her after-care therapy and Leah says she is.
He then brings up that Leah’s daughter Aleeah is a hellion. Leah has diagnosed her with ADHD. Of course, Leah is actually an expert on diagnostics. After all, at some point or another this season she has said she has narcolepsy, depression, anxiety, and a bunch of other random ailments. Except an addiction to drugs, of course. She doesn’t have a problem with the pillseses, y’all!
It’s time to bring that dern Corey Tyler out. Corey says that he is basically fed up with Leah’s lies, mainly about the pillseses and whatnot. Corey says he has local people coming up to him and saying that they’ve seen Leah looped up on whatever meds she can get her mitts on.
He next brings up the fact that Leah can’t stop moving. (Honestly, at this point, the girlseses should just keep their suitcases packed in anticipation of the next move. It takes a long time to pack up all those snack meats, guys!)
Corey says that all the constant moving, as well as the missed school, has prevented the kids from having a stable home, like the one he can provide them. Drew insists that now that Leah’s been “treated” things should be better, but Corey’s justifiably skeptical. In fact, he doesn’t even know what the heck Leah was in the ‘hab for!
Um…obviously depression. And anxiety. And back problems. And migraines. And narcolepsy. And to find herself. Duh.
Corey says that he’s stressed and anxious too, but Dr. Drew insists that Leah’s issues are “special.” He’s legit holding Leah’s hand during this segment.
WHAT THE EFF ARE WE WATCHING?! Seriously, this is ridiculous.
Corey says that it’s not Miranda’s fault that he and Leah no longer get along. In fact, Corey thinks that Miranda “gave him a backbone” to stand up to Leah and call her out on her various and ever-changing excuses.
Corey says that Leah’s jealous of Miranda because Leah can’t keep a man for more than two years. Leah snaps back, asking Corey where he was in the first few months of his marriage to Miranda, insinuating that Corey was hitting Leah up for some back-of-the-pickup action. (Just curious but, um, Leah, why are you proud of this? Weren’t you married to Jeremy at that time?)
They are both making weird faces at each other. (Wait, is this like their version of foreplay? Are they gonna do the hillbilly horizontal mambo right there on the couch in front of Dr. Drew!?) Corey says he’s not scared of Leah revealing his secrets anymore, and that if he did the things that Leah “done,” he wouldn’t see his kids anymore.
For some reason, that makes Leah call “Monkey!” (Read all about what that means here.) No one seems to pay any attention to Leah calling her safe word, so Leah’s mom Dawn screams from the audience that Leah done said “MONKEY!”
Corey’s confused as to why Leah’s screaming about a random animal, so Dr. Drew explains that “Monkey” is Leah’s safe word and that when she doesn’t want to go into something, she yells that and everyone has to stop what they’re talking about. Corey looks like he just found out he entered the Twilight Zone.
“I’m gonna start callin’ monkey!” Corey says, clearly exasperated that MTV done drug him out of West Virginia, put him on the air-o-plane and flew him to LA, but they won’t let him discuss what’s really going on in their lives.
“I don’t have this problem with the other father,” Leah says smugly.
Corey then brings up that his kids have to make their own breakfasts on the regular because Leah is passed out cold most mornings and unable to be woken up. Of course, Leah has a reasonable, medical explanation for that.
“The doctors thought I had narcolepsy!” she cries, adding that Corey Tyler and that bitch-of-a-wife of his, Miranda, gave her no support for this latest illness. Leah insists that she doesn’t lie.
With this latest statement on the table, Corey decides to test her word. He asks her if she’s dating a new guy. Leah insists she’s not, and says that she’s not living and sleeping with any new guy like the twins have told Corey. He’s just a friend, y’all. (At the point this was taped in July, by the way, Leah had been seeing T.R. Dues for several months and had already been living with him. In fact, Leah brought him out to LA with her for this reunion! But…she doesn’t lie, y’all!)
Finally, it’s time to bring out Miranda! (Hopefully the production assistants had the ladies remove their shoes before they let Miranda hit the stage. I mean, safety first.)
Miranda comes out, ready to tear those fresh extensions out of Leah’s head. She calls “Bullsh*t” on everything Leah has said. Leah claims that Miranda’s mean to her, and sometimes throws the girlseses carseats across whatever random parking lot they’re doing the kid exchange at. (Maybe Miranda’s heaving car seats at Leah to try to get her to actually use them?)
Leah claims that she and Corey were getting along (and getting busy!) before Miranda came along, so clearly Miranda is the issue. Leah claims that Miranda has a bad attitude toward her. The girls start waving their hands all Jerry-Springer-Show-esque and it looks like there’s about to be bleached blond hair a-flyin’. Corey, however, crushes our dreams and tells Miranda to call “monkey” and explains that stops any conversation.
“Freakin’ MONKEY, OK?!” Miranda yells. (Did The Ashley mention how much she loves Miranda? Get it, girl!)
Leah explains that she should get to talk, and then Miranda should get to talk. This is something that Leah tells us she learned in therapy. (Somewhere, the MTV exec who OK’d paying for Leah’s trip to therapy is shaking his head.)
Dr. Drew, ever the medical professional, says that he’s sensing that Miranda is hostile. UM, you think!? She’s literally about to chew Leah’s face off. Good to see that medical training is coming in handy, Doc.
Miranda says that there are a lot of reasons that she is hostile toward Leah, mainly that Leah’s been disrespectful to her and her marriage. Leah and Corey both admit that “things happened that shouldn’t have” and they apologized. (So basically…they’re all talking about this incident, in case you were wondering.)
Leah denies that she’s ever disrespected Corey or Miranda any other time, but the Simms claim that Leah’s always bashing on Corey on-camera. Corey says that he’s watched ‘Teen Mom 2’ and seen Leah cuss him out to Jeremy while the girlseses are in the car, and Leah kind of goes silent.
Then Miranda and Leah both start making these weird smiling faces at each other, like they’re best girlfriends about to braid each other’s hair. Of course, we know that they are anything but, and are actually seconds away from making the evening news for a brutal on-stage fight. Corey looks absolutely miserable.
Corey asks that Leah inform him of where his kids are going to school, and requests that the kids stay in one place for a while with Leah. That causes Leah to burst into tears for some reason. She looks like she’s about to run off the stage, Jenelle-style, but instead she sits there and cries. She says she feels judged and ganged-up on. Drew assures her that the girlseses won’t care if they see Leah being a trainwreck on ‘Teen Mom 2.’
Dr. Drew ends the segment by talking about Miranda’s pregnancy. As Miranda talks about how excited the twins are for the new baby, the camera pans to Leah, and you can just see that she’s hurt that Corey has a new family. They say you never get over the guy that knocks you up in the back of a truck on prom night, and I think Corey and Leah are clear proof of this.
(In case you’re wondering, Leah did film a segment with her other ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, but MTV chose not to show it, given that the segment with Corey was much more interesting. The Ashley’s source told her that Leah’s sit-down with Jeremy was rather uneventful and that there was no fighting.)
Until next season, y’all…
