From possibly going under the knife (again) to posting questionable photos on social media, the stars of the Teen Mom franchise (both past and present) have been keeping themselves busy lately!
In an effort to get you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 news, The Ashley brings you the Teen Mom News Pile. Here are some of the major (and minor but interesting) ‘Teen Mom’-related things that have happened over the last week or so.
Lori Wickelhaus of “16 and Pregnant” to be sentenced this month for possession of child p0rn.
Lori Wickelhaus, who appeared on the second season of 16 and Pregnant, plead guilty to possession of child p0rn during a May 10 court hearing, The Sun reports, and will be sentenced for her crime June 29.
As you may remember, the (now) 28-year-old was arrested August 24, 2020, in Campbell County, Kentucky, and charged with 20 counts of possessing or viewing matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.
The police report from 2020 stated that the county’s police department received a Cybertip from the Kentucky State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that was originally submitted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip reportedly came in after an unknown person uploaded photos that showed illicit child images to a Dropbox account after which, a search began in March 2020 of Lori’s computers and phone. She was indicted August 13 and arrested later that month.
Lori appeared on the same season of “16 and Pregnant” as Kail Lowry, Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer. During her episode, Lori and her then-boyfriend Corey Haskett struggled with the decision to place their baby boy for adoption. Lori, who was adopted herself, ultimately placed her son with his adopted family at the end of the episode, though she revealed years later that she “fell into a downward spiral” after doing so.
Lori later got engaged to Joey Amos, and the two went on to welcome daughter Rylynn Jo in 2013 and son Logan in 2014. Lori and Joey broke up, and she is apparently dating a man named Mike currently.
Debra Danielsen insists her daughter Farrah Abraham is actually getting an education at Harvard University and not lying through her
veneers teeth as haters suspect.
When former ‘Teen Mom OG’ star Farrah Abraham announced a couple months ago that she planned to start working on a Masters of Liberal Arts degree at Harvard University, many assumed she was either outright lying or taking advantage of the free courses offered online at Harvard through edX, which does not require individuals to apply or be accepted to the university.
After all, Farrah didn’t even bother to spell “Harvard” correctly when updating her Facebook info at the time… to the surprise of absolutely no one.
Farrah was quick to add her latest education pursuits to her LinkedIn page, though the credentials were later removed after the aspiring politician was unable to prove that she was actually attending the Ivy League.
According to Farrah’s mom, Debra “Debz OG” Danielsen, Farrah has since produced the necessary “receipts” to prove her enrollment, and her Harvard credentials (though somewhat edited) are back up on her LinkedIn page.
“Farrah is doing online classes at Harvard to further her entertainment career,” Deb told The Sun. “It’s not to be an actress. It’s to do production, writing, storytelling, directing and more. She sent in the receipts to LinkedIn to show she paid for the classes. It’s back up on her LinkedIn. She’s definitely enrolled.”
As for those who questioned Farrah’s status as a Harvard student, Deb claims “a lot of haters don’t know what Harvard offers online” and she can “see where people get confused.”
“ … Harvard offers online classes and they do specialize in entertainment classes,” she continued. “Most people think of law school or business school. Harvard makes you buckle down and focus!”
When questioned recently about her Harvard claims on TikTok, Farrah reportedly fired back with some good old fashioned Farrah Speak.
“Thanks for being a hater at someone getting their Masters at Harvard, you’re so funny,” she replied. “But you know what? Bank accounts don’t lie and neither does my baby.”
Kail Lowry says weight gain from PCOS may lead her to undergo gastric bypass surgery.
’Teen Mom 2’ star Kail Lowry is no stranger to surgery, and it looks like she might be going under the knife once again.
Kail revealed earlier this year on an episode of her Coffee Convos podcast that she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a disorder that often causes weight gain. As a result of her disorder, Kail has considered gastric bypass surgery to help get rid of some of the weight she said she has gained rapidly.
During an episode of A Cyster & Her Mister podcast, the mother of four explained that her “weight gain has been rapid.”
“I’m talking in two weeks I couldn’t fit into my jeans anymore,” she admitted. “I literally panicked. Being in the public eye and kind of dealing with this right now has been harder than I thought. Everything that I do is based on my image and what I look like, and how much weight I’ve gained or lost.
“I feel desperate to lose weight,” she continued. “I went to see a doctor for the gastric sleeve. That’s how desperate I am for these changes.”
Despite being open about her PCOS diagnosis, Kail said she still receives comments from body-shamers calling her names like “pig” and “cow.”
“The comments that I get about my weight on social media and being on the show has been the hardest part for me,” she explained. “And that’s where I get emotional because I didn’t expect it and it’s not something I’ve been able to control. I’ve tried. And so when people comment and they’re like pig, cow, this that and the third, I’m like, ‘well f**k, something is wrong.'”
Over the years, David Eason, husband of Jenelle Evans and all around stand-up citizen, has repeatedly “fat-shamed” Kail (as well as other ‘Teen Mom’ cast members), and just last year, Kail and Jenelle got into a bit of a fat-shaming feud with one another on social media.
Farrah Abraham makes yet another phenomenal parenting decision.
In addition to wishing herself a happy birthday from her daughter Sophia’s Instagram account this week (as you do), Farrah also made the odd choice to allow her 12-year-old to pose for photos with a pregnancy test.
The photo, which included suggestive graphics reading “wink wink” and “OMG,” was apparently part of a partnership deal between Modern Fertility and (presumably) Farrah, though that didn’t keep people from criticizing the company for their absurd marketing strategy, and Farrah for allowing Sophia to pose with a pregnancy test.
Angry fans also headed to Modern Fertility’s business page on Instagram to let the brand know just who they were working with.
“So you’re excited to work with Farrah Abraham? The trash bag who has her 12-year-old daughter and her Instagram Story holding a pregnancy test,” one person commented. “You might want to rethink that one.”
“Farrah thinks it’s cool to have her 12 year old Sophia advertise your products, Farrah is a horrible business person / mom and she will ruin your brand…anything Farrah touches turns to [s**t],” another wrote.
As it clearly states in Sophia’s Instagram bio, her page is managed by none other than Farrah… not that anyone would ever think otherwise, given the frequent Farrah fanfare (and Farrah Speak) featured on the page.
“Congratulations to my cover model mom @farrahabraham on #harpersbazaar and including me,” Sophia (allegedly) posted on Instagram earlier this year. “ … thank you for always being a role model for me and to future female leaders, thank you to my mom for taking me around the world and showing me love of all cultures and never feeling less then and over coming all hate and bad influences.”

It’s Harper’s Bazaar in VIETNAM!
She’s hired a new publicist to shop her around.
Where is DCFS when you need them?????
I just read that if you have PCOS you are less fertile. She has a child every year fgs!
Not always true. It can be different for everyone. Maci also has PCOS and she had no problem having babies.
I don’t think a gastric sleeve is going to help for hormonal weight gain. She needs to see a specialist to sort through that. If that is the issue, she’d likely see the weight fall back off once chemicals are balanced. A gastric sleeve is to prevent overeating and reduce weight in that manner.
Unfortunately there isn’t some magic assortment of hormones or pills currently that can change insulin resistant PCOS. There are some options – but there is no cure. Hopefully someday there will be… but for now women truly do just have this excess weight that can be virtually impossible to get rid of.
Yeah Kail is full of shit. It is a thinly (?) veiled attempt at PR covering for her continued plastic surgery. Kail keeps trying to parlay her various side hustles back into tv but as they say in the biz she has a face for radio. On top of that she has had several surgeries that she tried to play off similarly in the past. If someone is fat is it fat shaming to call them fat? I mean it seems hypocritical to yell “this is for all the big girls” and then tell someone not to call you big. Really she should focus on those stupid looking fake lips and getting that skull sleeve covered properly and just accept that we all get fat, old, and ugly lol. Oh well she has near Farrah levels of delusion and logic ability so she will probably just keep doing the same dumb crap like everyone else for ~5k worth of ad revenue per month rather than using that super empowering college degree to pursue an actual career that ironically by law calls for the very protections she is crying about lol. Good luck, Kail, you never disappoint 🙂
Message to Kailyn: You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. Work on the inside, the outside will follow.
I can’t wait until Sophia grows up and writes a tell all book. That’s one Teen Mom book I’ll actually read!
A skinny pig is still a pig. Just look at Farrah.
Two things here:
First, Farrah has people talking about a product again, however unsettling the pic of her daughter is.
Second, are we saying it’s not Hulks fault she is heavy? Priceless.
stay lit, count your calories.
If she does have PCOS it isn’t actually her fault. I have it and sometimes you can gain 10 pounds in 2 weeks and still eat a healthy, all natural diet. It’s a hormonal disorder and weight gain is one of thr largest symptoms.
I’m sorry, I don’t know much about PCOS.
Doesn’t Maci have it too? She’s super thin.
Is PCOS something that effects different women in different ways?
PCOS can manifest in different ways. I have the kind that Maci has – which is NON insulin resistant PCOS. Kail has the kind that IS insulin resistant. PCOS is a huge spectrum. Both Kail and Maci have kids the second they feel like it (and even when they don’t) but I had to have IVF for both of my two kids.
I have the insulin resistant kind and also have issues conceiving. It literally took me 2 years to lose 20 pounds on an all natural diet while minimizing carbs and sugar and exercising regularly.
Been trying to conceive for a year and nothing.
Let’s not judge things that we don’t know.
That wasn’t judgement, if you actually read my response/question you clearly see I was ASKING about PCOS.
I’m very sorry for you!
I don’t know much about PCOS.
Doesn’t Maci have it too? She’s super thin.
Is PCOS something that effects different women in different ways?
Could you imagine your mom being as shameless as Farrah?? Poor Sophia. And her bank account doesn’t lie? Well it is obviously lying to her, because she can’t even pay back that (over) $700k she owes to her landlord.
Farrah enrolled in Harvard 1 month ago. She has not earned her degree yet. She probably hasn’t even started classes yet. Her bio makes it look as though she has already earned her masters degree. And who takes a photo of themselves on the bed with their legs wide open other than a p0rn star.
I will never understand women who get back to back surgery knowing they want more children. You’re putting yourself at risk with each surgery & wasting money. I refuse to get any cosmetic surgery until after my tubes are tied.
Farrah’s “entertainment career” is in escorting and has been for many years. Being able to be a storyteller includes the ability to write and form coherent thoughts. Farrah would have to get off the barbiturates and take some English composition courses in order to do so. I still don’t believe Farrah is at Harvard. Farrah is to Harvard as Debz is to Juilliard.
You are being nice, she may need to start w/ a basic 8th grade English class.
And Elementary grammar and punctuation
They are all delusional.
Farrah has ruined that child in so many ways, there is no way she’ll be able to have a healthy life, limited education, a lunatic as a constant companion, exposure to adult situations, probable sexual exploitation, its really quite sad.
I dont like Kail; however its very sad to see a mother of 4 struggling with weight and feeling crap about it. It takes 14 months after having a baby for your body to fully recover from being pregnant and giving birth…its horrible that we are still in a “bounce back” culture instead of showing compassion and understanding to women who are in one of the most vulnerable times in life. Anyone that feels the need to call a new mother ‘fat’ has serious personal demons.
Right, she’s also approaching 30 things like bouncing back in general are starting to get harder.
idc i really feel for kail and could understand why she’d wanna get the surgery since everyone’s body types is different and it is shown that she does work out. but i better not hear jenelle try to body shame kail like jenelle isn’t the same size as kail.
When Jenelle was with Nathan, she looked her best. Off (most) drugs, eating at intervals and working out. She took care of herself.
She does none of that now and it shows.
Kail does take pride in her appearance, her hair is always styled, makeup, and she doesn’t wear sweats on Sunday.
Jenelle also doesn’t have a baby, her youngest will be 5. Jenelle is still young, she doesn’t work and all the kids are no doubt gone all day. She has no excuse for her hygiene, bc thats what it is at this point, is a hygiene issue. The booze, the junk food, just being lazy and sedentary.
As much as I dont like Kail as well, her metabolism isnt necessarily a choice, like it is for Jenelle.
Idk Kail. Whatever. No one cares how you look. It’s your shitty attitude that needs a sleeve.
Yikes on even insinuating that the child could be pregnant. At what age can kids start emancipation proceedings?
“A role model to future female leaders” is all I needed to see. Farrah is just… a special kind of delusional.
