‘Teen Mom’ News Pile: Kail Lowry Reveals What Inspired Her Twins’ Unique Names; Ryan Edwards Moves Into New Home with Rehab Girlfriend & More

When the Internet doesn’t like your baby names…

From explaining baby names to moving into a new place , it’s been another busy week for the stars/former stars of the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise! In an effort to bring you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG 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 happened over the last week or so…

Kail Lowry Reveals Why She Chose “Valley” & “Verse” As Her Twins’ Names; Talks About the Other Names She Considered

“Anyone who flew out of my gentleman-greeter after 2013 gets a weird name. That’s the rule!”

Last week, Kail revealed the, um, “unique” names she and her boyfriend Elijah Scott chose for their recently born twins: Valley and Verse. The former ‘Teen Mom 2’ star got plenty of negative comments after she announced the names on Instagram, with many people calling her out for choosing “weird” or “random word” names for the babies.

This week, Kail revealed on TikTok why she chose the name Verse for her son, and Valley for her daughter. (As ‘Teen Mom’ fans know, Kail is a big fan of giving her kids “interesting” names. In addition to the twins, Kail is also the mother of sons Rio, Lux, Creed, Lincoln and Isaac.)

“Verse came from Iverson, which is the name that Lincoln recommended,” Kail said, adding that its a nod to basketball player Allen Iverson. “Obviously, it would be on his list because he’s a huge basketball fan.”

Kail stated that she chose “Valley” as an homage to Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, where she grew up.

“The Lehigh Valley really shaped a big part of who I am, and it’s a huge part of why I am where I am today, and so I really liked Valley,” Kail said. “I feel like it’s not super-different. It’s a name you can still grow with. It’s not too weird.” 

All of our faces when Kail says “Valley” isn’t too weird…

Kail stated that she didn’t intentionally give both babies names beginning with “V.”

“It just happened,” she stated.

Kail also said that she won’t be using nicknames for the babies.

“I really don’t like the nickname Val [for Valley],” she said. “If she wants to go by Val when she’s older that will be her choice but I like that it’s just Valley and there’s no nickname for it.” 

In another TikTok video posted this week, Kail revealed some of the names she had considered for the twins.  Among the names Kail thought about giving her daughter were Willamina (which she stated she loved but “everyone vetoed it”); Sway (which Elijah hated it); and Scotlyn (which would combine the last part of “Kailyn” with the first part of Elijah’s last name, Scott.) 

Kail said she considered the name “Golden” for her son (which just so happens to be the name of one of Nick Cannon‘s many sons). She also considered the name “Spade.”

“Wait like…what you do to dogs to keep them from having babies?”

Other names considered for her son were Croix/Kroy, Wells and Miller.

In the comment section of that post, Kail confirmed that the twins have the last name of “Lowry.”

Ryan Edwards & His Rehab Girlfriend Move Into New House Together 

“You know what they say: home is where your probation officer calls!”

Ryan is taking his relationship with his rehab galpal, Amanda Conner, to the next level.

The ‘Teen Mom OG’ star has apparently moved into a new home with Amanda, who posted a few photos of her and Ryan’s new pad to Snapchat this week. As The Ashley told you, Ryan met Amanda while both were in the same rehab center last summer. (Ryan later transferred to the rehab’s halfway house, where Amanda also lived.) 

“Our new home,” Amanda captioned one of the photos she posted. 

In another photo posted by Amanda, Ryan can be seen installing a television set on the wall of the home. 

Before the move, Ryan had reportedly been shacking up at Amanda’s place. (It is unknown how the legally challenged pair is paying for their new digs, as neither reportedly have jobs outside of Ryan’s gig at MTV.) 

Amanda has stood by Ryan through all his ongoing legal issues, even appearing in the courtroom several time to show her support. She has also been outspoken about her dislike of Ryan’s soon-to-be ex-wife, Mackenzie. Last month, she blasted Mackenzie on social media.

“Ryan’s almost ex wife is a b*tch she don’t know who she is f**king with,” Amanda wrote. “She’s just mad that Ryan wants me now and don’t want her whiny baby a** now post that for her dumb a** to see !!

“Leave me the f**k alone I don’t play internet games,” Amanda wrote…on The Internet. 

$25k Lawsuit Filed Against Cheyenne Floyd Dismissed; Plaintiff Claimed Cheyenne Crashed Into Her Car in 2021 to Avoid Gunman

“…this sounds like the perfect excuse to throw a party!”

A lawsuit filed in 2023 against Cheyenne Floyd has been dismissed, saving ‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter’ star a cool $25k. 

As The Ashley previously told you, Cheyenne was sued last summer for crashing into a car in August 2021 while trying to avoid an alleged gunman who had opened fire on her vehicle. Cheyenne was in the vehicle with her husband, Zach Davis, and children Ryder and Ace when the shooting occurred. 

Cheyenne and Zach told ‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter’ viewers in 2022 that their car was shot at 13 times and that they knew the person who pulled the trigger. Although she and her family managed to avoid the bullets, Cheyenne ended up crashing her car into another vehicle when swerving to avoid the gunman.

Cheyenne was later sued for the incident in June 2023 by the passengers in the car that she crashed into. The two plaintiffs accused Chey of motor vehicle property damage and personal injury. Both plaintiffs claimed to have suffered wage loss, loss of use of property, hospital and medical expenses, general damages, property damage, loss of earning capacity and other damages as a result of the collision.  

The plaintiffs also filed a lawsuit against the alleged gunman at the time. 

According to The Sun, the two plaintiffs requested on January 31 to dismiss the lawsuit against Cheyenne.

(The outlet was reportedly unable to confirm whether any criminal charges are pending against the alleged gunman.)

Cheyenne had requested in October to have the lawsuit against her dismissed, or to have a jury trial in the event that it was not dismissed. A non-jury trial had been set for December 4, 2024 but has since been vacated by the court. 

Cory Wharton Reveals If He Plans to Do Another Season of ‘The Challenge’

“I’ll be over here staring at my phone, waiting for a call, if anyone needs me. Should I get a beeper too?” 

Cory’s mug will continue to be all over MTV, if he has his way!

The ‘Teen Mom’ dad– who got his start on MTV shows like The Challenge and The Real World— took to Instagram Stories on Thursday to do a Q&A with his followers. During the Q&A session, someone asked Cory if he plans to continue appearing on ‘The Challenge.’

Although Cory appeared on last year’s ‘The Challenge: USA’ Season 2, he has not appeared on the regular ‘Challenge’ show on MTV since 2021’s “Spies, Lies & Allies” season. According to Cory, he’s ready and willing to do more seasons of the show, should he be asked.

“As long as they’re calling, I’m picking up, baby!” Cory said during his Q&A. “Count me in. As long as all my daughters are healthy and things are going well, then I’m out working. These bills ain’t going to pay themselves, so I got to do what I got to do!”

Also…there’s this…

Cory said that, while he’s willing to appear on any ‘Challenge’ show, he hopes to get his mug on the OG version of the franchise.

“I definitely want to get back into the flagship of MTV’s ‘Challenge,'” he said. “I just did CBS‘ ‘Challenge USA’ Season 2 and got second place.

“It’s time to come back home baby, become that champ!” Cory added.

  1. Valley is honestly fine. We have a “winter” at my job, and a “summer”, and an “august”. All of those are much weirder in my opinion!

  2. We all know how Ryan is paying for that house **COUGH COUGH MOMMY JEN** Honestly, Kail’s baby names aren’t that bad, I’ve seen worse.

  3. I know it makes me a terrible person but Rhines new woman, who btw looks like a bizarro version of Macy, makes me laugh. I can’t imagine walking around at her grown age with so much confidence and love for a total loser. He on the other hand is a ticking time bomb and makes me nervous.

  4. Cory better get a real job. Aging mtv stars turn pathetic real quick.. Ryan should stay single, he’s not ready for a relationship and kail? Congrats on your girl, glad you got your tubes tied

  5. Remember when Kail hid a whole ass baby from the world for a year and is not shoving the twins down everyone’s throat?

  6. Iverson actually doesn’t sound that bad as Verse. But damn, some of those are even worse than what she chose and that’s saying something!

    Oh great. Two enablers living together. This will go fantastic! And why isn’t this guy in jail?!

    Cory, GTFO out of our screens! I don’t like this guy since he showed his mug on The Real World and it’s VERY OBVIOUS how much he likes to be on TV! Are you trying to be the next Johnny Bananas?!

  7. Spade? Bitch. No she fkn didn’t.
    She really sat up here and admitted that too. Wow.

    Cory get a job.

    Yeah,how do 2 crackheads get a place to live? That isn’t a total dump?

    Nah, if you’re drug dealing boyfriend causes damage to me or mines bc he’s a drug dealer, yeah, I’m suing you.

  8. I actually think Valley is pretty and I like that even if Kail doesn’t use it Val is a completely normal nn she could use. I don’t really like Verse but it isn’t the most horrible name either. I liked some of her other choices better.

  9. If someone is shooting at me while I am driving I may also crash into your car accidentally to avoid being gun downed. There was never a case there.

  10. I don’t think that Valley is such a weird name. Maybe because in my country “María del Valle” (Mary of the Valley) is a fairly common, Catholic name.
    Also I wonder how long it will take Ryan to trash this new house 🤔

    1. if you consider raising your children to be as racist as you are, then yes I would agree, she’s one of the “better” mothers… smh

    2. I see lots of down votes. Maybe because Cheyenne comes from a wealthy family that has works in the entertainment industry? Plus, I thought she looked great in that bathing suit during that party she had.
