Let’s be real—the most exciting Teen Mom news of late is the fact that Teen Mom 3 is a go and that it’s premiering in just over a month. MTV, we love you! Thank you! So much! But here’s what’s going on in the personal lives of our fave reality stars, from Kailyn’s controversy to some happy (and some not-so-happy) pet news for Jenelle and Mackenzie. Read on!
Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin are expecting their first baby together in November, but Kailyn isn’t exactly embracing her baby bump. Fans are accusing Kail of hiding her baby bump in her photos because she’s “ashamed” of her second pregnancy, but Kail cleared it up by tweeting that she’s not ashamed, just private. Here’s a recent pic she took with Jenelle Evans and a friend during a visit to Myrtle Beach that proves the point. Whatever floats your boat, Kail!
Speaking of Jenelle Evans, things seem to be going swimmingly with her boyfriend, Nathan, aka they haven’t broken up yet. But Jenelle suffered another loss this week—of her pet Lizard, Yoshi. When asked by a fan how Yoshi’s doing, Jenelle tweeted that her mom killed him. Uh, better Yoshi than Kieffer, eh?
Leah Calvert and her husband Jeremy have also been having a rough week. Leah and Corey got bad news from Ali’s doctors, though we don’t yet know what the exact cause for concern is, and on top of that, Leah also said that she and Jeremy have to move out of the home they just purchased together. Here’s the tweets:
This is happening, is it real? I can wake up from this nightmare at anytime now!

But in happier couples’ news, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are doing great even though their wedding never happened last weekend. Cate shared this adorable pic on Instagram of her and Tyler’s hiking trip, which they took to celebrate their 9 year anniversary. So freakin’ adorable, you guys!
But what’s not cute? The fact that Farrah Abraham is not up on current events. When asked by a radio DJ who Trayvon Martin is (he was the kid that got killed by George Zimmerman, BTW), she basically had no idea who he was. Here’s the audio:
But there’s good news for Amber Portwood fans! Amber is currently in jail, but her brother, Shawn, told Twitter that things are looking up for Leah’s mama and she’s taking on a leadership role in the slammer. He tweeted:

As for Teen Mom 3? After the trailer and the premiere date got released last week—set your DVRs for August 26, ladies!—Josh McKee celebrated by buying a boxer for his fiance, Mackenzie Douthit, and their son, Gannon. He’s a natural in this adorable pic posted to Instagram!
And also, please note—Mackenzie’s wedding to Josh is scheduled for August 17. A few days beforehand, she and her co-stars Katie, Briana and Alex will be in NYC to promote the show’s first season. And bachelorette festivities will ensue! Clearly we’re staying tuned for pics…
