RUNAWAY BRIDE? Leah begins to crumble under the pressure of wedding planning and Ali's health scare, and wonders whether now is the right time to walk down the aisle
Kailyn gets some peace of mind, Jenelle faces her mother, and Leah gets cold feet| Published Mar 16, 2011
The girls all hit turning points last night, from Chelsea pondering her relationship with Adam to Leah wondering whether marriage was in the cards right now. Let's see how it all went down:
Last night, Kailyn seemed less stressed for once. She didn't have to keep her relationship with Jordan covert, she and her mom were actually getting along, and Jo was acting like an adult. His parents were concerned about all the drama, and explained that in order to keep Isaac in his life, he needed to keep his relationship with Kail civil. And so Jo told her that he wanted no more drama in his life; she could pick up Isaac the following day, and when she had his $600, she could pick up her belongings, too. But there was also the issue of sharing Isaac. Who would keep him for how long? Yeesh, heavy talk for people under the age of 20. Anyway, I was more than a little surprised that Jo was content to keep the baby Friday through Sunday while Kailyn took weekdays. Why surprised, you ask? Well, as despicably as Jo talks to Kailyn, he seems to actually enjoy spending time with his baby. Unlike Adam, he's actually responsible.
Later that week, Kailyn got her paycheck, which meant she finally had the $600 for Jo. Easy, right? Well, of course not. Jo made a snide comment that Kailyn should just get her things without going through the bags. Now, Kailyn probably wouldn't have even bothered to rifle through her things, but the fact that Jo basically forbade her to do so added fuel to the fire. First, she said she could go through the bags if she wanted to, then he said no, then she didn't sign the $600 check because he was rude, then he didn't want to give her her things (again with the keeping of her things?), and then he demanded $30 for a babysitter. Finally, Kailyn's mom intervened, and persuaded Kailyn to sign the check and Jo to give Kailyn her things. Oh, but Jo wouldn't let Kail leave without calling her a b---- and slamming the door on her.
Now that Adam was gone, Chelsea was pretty lonely in the house. But as far as taking care of Aubree by herself? That was no different, because Adam never pitched in anyway. She had had time to think about everything that went down, and with that time for reflection came an epiphany: "If he really was with other girls, then I was right the whole time," she told her dad, who gave the best "duh!" expression we've seen all season. He had said it before and he said it again last night: Chelsea had hoped for a fairy tale and wasn't getting the storybook ending she so badly wanted. She wasn't getting child support, either. Adam was about $2,000 behind in payment.
