Jesse Camp, Beloved MTV VJ, Reported Missing

In 1998, Jesse Camp - whose real name is Josiah Camp - won a reality contest to become an MTV VJ.

Even after he left TRL, he was able to use that platform of MTV fame to launch his music career.

He would go on to make an array of friends, including some big-name celebrities.

Well, those friends - and his countless fans - are worried, now. And so is his family.

Jesse has been reported missing and police are searching for him and hoping to find him alive and safe.

Natalie Negrotti Comes Out as Pansexual!

Natalie Negrotti is a former NFL cheerleader who rose to fame on Big Brother. Recently, she has been a competitor on The Challenge: Final Reckoning.

Now, Natalie has publicly come out as pansexual and revealed that she is dating a woman. Congratulations, Natalie!

This happy milestone was somewhat marred by the fact that one of her costars had more or less outed her recently. Yikes.

MTV's The Challenge: Final Reckoning is the thirty-second season of The Challenge. Feel old yet?

After Kaleigh Morris outed effectively outed her -- incorrectly referring to her as a lesbian.

Backed into a proverbial corner, Kaleigh came out as pansexual on Tuesday, July 17's airing of The Challenge.

Sexuality is complicated and not everyone is comfortable with every label, but pansexual means that a person is attracted to people without regard for gender.

Though bisexual is a more common label, some feel bogged down by the label's baggage. That is a personal preference either way.

Natalie spoke to Us Weekly about coming out, first opening up about what it was like to be outed by a costar.

Kaleigh had believed that Natalie was part of a "mean girl" incident on the show. Kaleigh did not believe her denials, and retaliated in a cruel way.

"She did it in a really malicious way, and that’s what really hurt me," Natalie explains.

"The way she did it," was vicious. Natalie continues. "She was saying, ‘She doesn’t even like d--k, she likes p--sy. She’s a lesbian.’"

Gender isn't the same thing as genitals, so characterizing a lesbian in that way isn't necessarily accurate, but that seems to be the least of Kaleigh's issues from what she had to say.

"I’m not a lesbian," Natalie clarifies. "I’m pansexual."

"She outed me in a really aggressive way and kept going," Natalie says.

"It was really homophobic in a way," Natalie explains. And she's right. "To me, that’s getting gay shamed."

Outing can make people lose their livelihoods or even their lives. Yes, even in 2018.

And while Natalie is fortunate enough to not be in that situation, she did receive a homophobic backlash on social media.

"Then there was a whole bunch of people that started gay-shaming me," Natalie says. "Calling me a ‘d-ke,’ going on my social media and attacking me for being gay."

Heartbreaking.

"It’s been a 28-year battle for me,” Natalie explained, describing how she had taken so long to come out. 

“I wanted to set a standard because you can’t do that," Natalie says of outing people.

"There are so many teenagers and kids that commit suicide every year because they get outed inappropriately."

"She took something that was mine and made it her own, and she did it really in a nasty way," Natalie explains. "Outing someone is not right and I want to set that standard … I wanted to come out in the right way."

It should be a big moment that a person chooses, not something that someone else does out of revenge.

"I wanted to turn it into something positive," Natalie says. "So that viewers that are going through the same thing that I’ve gone through don’t have to go through it for 28 years."

That is so good of her.

Natalie has also made a series of not-so-subtle Instagram posts, including the tag #20gayteen -- a common tag this year within the LGBTQ+ community to remind people that there is goodness within the political nightmare of our times.

"Accepting myself as I was designed led me to the day I stopped trying to fit into a world that never really fit with me and gave me the chance to blossom into the person I am today," Natalie wrote in one post's caption, tagging it: "#selflove."

On Twitter, natalie shared another message.

"I came out with my story to share my truth with those who are battling the same thing I did," Natalie says.

She then asks fans: Do not throw hate at anyone for their actions."

In other words, don't troll Kaleigh. What she did was wrong, but Natalie only harped on it because she wants people to understand why it's wrong.

"I wanted to use my platform to educate people who are not informed," Natalie says. "Let’s spread love and education not hate"

Good for her!

Stephen Colletti: MTV Wants to Do a Laguna Beach Reunion!

For three brief, wonderful seasons, viewers were immersed in the lives of the teenage stars of Laguna Beach.

That was over a decade ago, but the cultural impact of that ahead-of-its-time reality series cannot be measured.

And now, former star Stephen Colletti has confirmed that MTV is talking about hosting a reunion.

Stephen Colletti on Instagram

Speaking to People, Stephen Colletti teases a Laguna Beach reunion.

"They’ve been talking about it," he reveals.

“MTV has been," Colletti says. "They’ve been putting out some phone calls for it."

So they're weighing their options and perhaps testing the waters.

He cautions viewers to not start belting "Coming Clean" just yet, however -- even though it's a great song.

Stephen Colletti Smelfie

Colletti says that he's reluctant to dive back into reality television, saying: "It’s not really my journey."

"I think I’ve done enough reality TV for a couple of lifetimes at this point," Colletti admits.

That's fair. He also went into real-life acting on One Tree Hill.

“I think we can let that one go," Colletti says of the possibility of him doing more reality work.

"That ship," Colletti states. "Has sailed for me!"

Stephen Colletti and Goats

"We were just such young little kids," he says.

That might be an exaggeration, but they really were just teenagers during those Laguna Beach days.

“What I loved about being on that show," Colletti reveals. "Was everyone that we were working with and shooting the show with."

He describes that "they made us feel kind of comfortable."

"Looking back," Colletti reflects. "We were very comfortable hanging out with these people."

Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti: Laguna Beach Throwback

At the time, Colletti wasn't even sure that the show would be a hit -- or even finish filming.

"It was like, ‘Nah, this isn’t going anywhere," Colletti recalls. "We’re just having fun, and it’s just going to end up in a box at MTV’s offices. It’s not going to be on air.’"

So many great success stories begin with doubts. But he was having a fun time with it anyway.

"There’d be a time where Kristin was walking into the surf shop back in the day," Colletti says. "And they’d let me hold the camera and shoot her and follow her in and teach me the style they wanted to shoot it."

That's a rare opportunity -- getting real, in-the-field, experience behind a camera.

"Those are the memories that I have from it,” Stephen says. “It’s usually pretty positive. But you definitely look back with a smile and remember that we were quite naive little children."

Lauren Conrad, William Tell, Stephen Colletti

So, does he keep in touch with the rest of the cast? Well ... sort of.

"We see each other at different times, back home in Laguna for the holidays or whatnot,” Colletti reveals. “It’s not a constant conversation, we’re not buds texting each other every day, but it’s all cordial."

Of course, as the good folks over at The Ashley pointed out, the Laguna Beach cast did hold a bit of a reunion in 2014.

They also note that Kristin Cavallari has already made her return to reality television -- joining E! with her own show, Very Cavallari.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to keep listening to "Coming Clean" on repeat.

But specifically the Bermudez & Harris Herbal Essences Mix, of course -- we're not wild animals.

2018 MTV VMA Nominations: Who Leads the Way?

“It has already been a monumental year in music, and this year’s VMAs will take things to a whole new level,” said Bruce Gillmer, Head of Music and Music Talent, Global Entertainment Group, Viacom on Monday.

He added as a tease:

Floribama Shore: Kortni Gilson Files Restraining Order Against Boyfriend Logan

If you've been keeping up with recent episodes of Floribama Shore, you know that Kortni Gilson seems head over heels for her boyfriend, Logan.

But reality episodes air months after being filmed.

In real life, Kortni got a restraining order against Logan for stalking and violence. And he has already been charged with violating the order.

Logan from Floribama Shore Mugshot

Starcasm reports that, on April 23, Kortni Gilson filed a restraining order against Logan.

The protective order was filed for violence and for stalking.

They also report that, on May 18, Logan was charged for violating the restraining order.

He was apparently seen riding his skateboard in front of her residence. He is said to have then illegally entered a club where she was located.

Within that club, he allegedly ran up to Kortni and other victims, plural, and only left when he saw that someone was on the phone.

Kortni Gilson on Instagram

The specifics of the alleged violence that prompted the order are unknown, but he was cited for disorderly conduct at Diego’s Bar and Grill just before 3 PM on the same day on which the order was filed.

"Upon arrival, I observed the defendant standing in the roadway doing inappropriate hand gestures (shotting [sic] the bird) to the restaurant staff," the responding officer's report reads.

"The defendant proceeded to yell “f--k you” loudly towards the staff," the officer writes.

"During this," the report says. "The restaurant was open for business."

This apparently happened across the street from a location where families were shopping with their children, as the officer notes.

Logan Chastises Kortni

Fans and viewers are not necessarily surprised by this grim turn of events.

Many minds immediately went to Logan's toxic, unhealthy reactions on the show.

Remember when Kortni was hopelessly drunk? Okay, that's too vague. Remember when she was so drunk that she had to be carried into the vehicle?

She was goofing around while Logan seemed to be looking at her and seething.

Instead of supporting her or checking on her health, he instead walked over to her and, in front of everyone and the cameras, chastised her for "embarrassing" him.

Logan Mugshot (Floribama Shore)

After seeing that display of fury, it is all too easy for a lot of Floribama Shore viewers to see his anger turning violent.

But it appears that Kortni was not the only person who took out a restraining order on Logan.

It was apparently Sean Hogan, a producer on the series, who called the police when Logan barged into the club.

Which is why it is now believed that perhaps the entire cast and crew of Floribama Shore is included within the protective order against Logan.

We don't know what he did to prompt this. But we do know that this is not his first time getting in trouble with the law.

Kortni Gilson

Logan has multiple mug shots for a reason.

In October of 2016, Logan was arrested for harassing communications.

In June of 2016, Logan was charged with felony first-degree theft of property.

In June of 2017, Logan was charged with disorderly conduct.

This kind of criminal history suggests that Logan is a person with behavioral problems.

We hope that the entire cast and crew of Floribama Shore remains safe.

Viewers will now have to cringe their way through the final episodes depicting Kortni's romance with Logan.

Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 1 Recap: Psycho-Ass Beach

MTV's trashier and more extreme version of Jersey Shore returned to the air Monday night, and it meant we got to catch up with the wild cast once again. 

At the top of Floribama Shore Season 2 Episode 1, we learned that Nilsa had been messaging Kortni to get her to give up the room she had on Floribama Season 1 and settle for a smaller room. 

The reason for this request? Nilsa wanted to bunk with Aimee and felt like she had the right to ask for someone else to give up their space for her. 

Kortni Gilson Goes Ham on Floribama Shore

If you watch Jersey Shore online, or any other reality TV series that focuses on a group living in a house together, you know that the room situation is generally dealt with in a reasonable manner. 

If you get to the house first, you get a good room. If not, you get to sleep outside with the alligators. We kid, mostly, but you get our drift. 

Needless to say, Kortni was not at all amused about it and admitted that she was ready to fly off the handle with Nilsa if she tried to pull any crap with her during the summer. 

Also, Kortni was the one who urinated all over the room on the series premiere, so we think it's fair to say that she had every right to want that room back. 

Nilsa Prowant

It's best to keep the bed wetters contained to the one room because, well, the whole house could be deemed unfit for purpose if it smells of urine. 

Kortni has always been a livewire and has the potential to throw in enough drama to cause World War III. Codi and Gus wasted no time in using the room situation to their advantage. 

They swapped her belongings with Nilsa's, and it sent Kortni off on an expletive-filled tirade that would give Jenelle Evans a run for her money. 

Kortni wanted to know who was "f--cking with my s--t." She might as well have been a robot created by the same people who made the Sammi doll on Jersey Shore. 

Codi made his way to the loo and claimed that if she thought he was dropping the kids off at the pool, it would take him out of the frame. 

Codi Butts - Floribama Shore

Well, he did not put it quite like that, but he was freaking the eff out in case Kortni lashed out at him. Instead, Kortni went straight to his belongings and started throwing them down the stairs. 

Codi wants to look good, and that's why he walked into the house with all of his clothing on hangers. Despite his freshly ironed shirts being put in jeopardy, the thing that set Codi off was that she threw his white pants down the stairs. 

Kortni called a house meeting, but that did not do anything to diffuse the situation. She subsequently punched the wall, leaving a huge dent and claiming that she would do the same to anyone who crossed her. 

Kortni did finally calm down, but the damage was done. The wall was busted. We should probably say her hand was busted, too, but we do not condone violent behavior. 

When Codi fessed up, Kortni was happy to know it was not Nilsa, but there was visibly something going on behind those eyes. She was all over the place. 

Kortni Gilson

The roomies went out to make sure they had the best first night ever, and bumped into Kortni's new squeeze, Logan, who was surprisingly calm. 

They do say that opposites attract, right?

Kortni was dancing on the bar for some free shots, and just generally making an ass of herself. Logan did not like this and flipped out when his girlfriend and Kirk started playing stupid games in the cab. 

Kortni was too drunk even to know whether she needed a poop or a haircut. In true Kortni fashion, she raced out of the cab and got ready to start throwing punches at Logan. 

Is it Monday yet? 

Aimee, Floribama Shore

The other houseguests were overshadowed by Kortni's antics, but the other most notable scene involved Aimee and Codi thinking they had somehow made their way to Washington, D.C. 

The pair thought they were standing outside the White House and started chatting about independence. Little did they know the rest of the world was laughing at them.

What did you think of the premiere? Did Kortni go too far?

Tiffany Haddish: Watch Her Roast Kris Jenner, Thirst After Chris Pratt!

We already know who won big at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. But there was more going on than awards, folks.

Tiffany Haddish was the hilarious host, and she had some great lines as she roasted everyone from the Kardashians to the Stranger Things kids. It's funny.

You might not trust her around food after this, though. Take a look.

Tiffany haddish hosts the mtv movie and tv awards

Tiffany Haddish is quite a character. Some of her claims and analogies are a little weird, but they always get a laugh.

She starts off by talking about some racial milestones.

"This has been a year of firsts for black people," Haddish says. "I'm the first black woman to host the MTV Movie and TV Awards."

That particular milestone is long overdue.

"Black Panther," she mentions. "Is the first African American movie to make a billion dollars."

That was an excellent movie. One of Marvel's best, in fact.

"And The Quiet Place," Haddish continues. "Is the first film to scare black people out of talking in movie theaters."

She is making a joke, there, about a stereotype that portrays African Americans as vocally engaging with films as they are happening.

Tiffany haddish mtv awards 01

"I'm always excited to see the Kardashians."

"Hiiii," Haddish says, waving at Kim Kardashian, who is wearing problematic braids, and Kris Jenner, whose commanding presence is always welcome.

"That family," Haddish continues. "Is basically the Star Wars franchise."

That's true in lots of senses. They're successful, they're an institution in the entertainment industry, and they can also be very controversial. Also not everyone likes them.

"They make a ton of money, a new one is always popping up, and they’re ruled by a bossy overlord who sleeps in a mask and she loves black men."

Those first two are very true. The third, though?

First of all, Emperor Sheev Palpatine would be the "bossy overlord." I have personally made plenty of comparisons between Kris Jenner and Palpatine -- all favorable, of course.

Sleeping in a mask sounds like a reference to Darth Vader (or maybe to Kylo Ren, though he hopefully doesn't sleep in that ridiculous thing).

We're not prepared to rule out that either Palpatine or Darth Vader fetishized black male Humans, but that is certainly above and beyond the realm of Star Wars canon.

Plenty of people were scratching their heads. But hey, it was funny.

Tiffany haddish mtv awards 02

Haddish then turned her attention to another target.

"And you know who else I love?" Haddish asks. "Zendaya."

As the young people say, big mood.

"She taught me how to model," the host informs the audience.

"She taught me how to model," she repeats. "And I taught her how to grapefruit."

If you're fortunate enough to not be aware, to grapefruit involves slicing a grapefruit ring and using it as an improvised sex toy to enhance the experience while performing fellatio.

(Please don't do this; it's a terrible idea, particularly if it is followed by sex, where the fruit juices could ruin a vagina's pH balance)

"What?!" Haddish says in a mock-defensive tone. "She's 21, now. She's a grown woman."

That she is. This joke would not be funny, otherwise. But it is very funny.

"You gotta know how to do that if you want a husband," Haddish explains.

Tiffany haddish mtv awards 03

She also has other celebrity guests on her mind.

"Seth Rogen is here," Haddish announces.

Seth, we should note, is sporting a full beard.

"I like you, Seth," Haddish says. "You're my favorite bearded white man since Abraham Lincoln."

That's cute. And then she moves on.

"The Jonas Brother is here," Haddish announces, to great applause.

She is referring, of course, to Nick. He is famously attractive and the entire audience immediately steels themselves for whatever sex joke she will inevitably make.

"Nick Jonas is going to tear it up with Mustard," Haddish says, referring to the musician beside Nick. "Which is also how I want him to tear it up with me."

While we appreciate her enthusiasm for Nick, we wouldn't recommend involving mustard in sex. That would be worse than grapefruit.

Tiffany haddish mtv awards 04

Haddish also talked about Riverdale.

"Apparently, Betty dates Jughead because he's named after his penis."

(To be honest, that was a reminder to me that actual teens watch Riverdale; everyone I know who talks about it is well into their twenties, at least)

She also had thirst for more audience members than just Nick Jonas.

"I get to flirt with Chris Pratt from Parks and Recreation," Haddish brags. "And Chris Pratt from Guardians of the Galaxy!"

True.

"Hey Chris," she says. "I've got a galaxy you can guard."

It's not subtle.

Honestly, it was much funnier when she was trying to bang Leonardo DiCaprio

2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards: ALL the Red Carpet Fashion!

The stars came out for the 2018 MTV Movie And TV Awards.

Some shined brightly, while others may be wishing right about now that a dark shadow had been cast over their regretful outfit choice.

Indeed, this yearly ceremony is set to air on Monday night, June 18... but it was filmed two days before that.

Nev Schulman Accuser Files Police Report Over Alleged Sexual Misconduct

Back in may, Catfish host Nev Schulman was accused of sexual misconduct.

The woman who brought forward her #MeToo story had appeared on the show, and says that she worried that he might do the same with other women.

Now, she has revealed that she filed her report about the alleged incident with the police.

Ayissha Morgan

Ayissha Morgan tells The Blast that she officially filed two police reports related to her allegations of sexual misconduct that she leveled towards Nev Schulman.

She says that both reports were filed on May 25.

The reports, filed with the Houston Police Department, were made "for what happened during my participation on the show."

She accuses a production assistant of having plied her with alcohol in order to take advantage of her.

She also accuses Schulman, the host of Catfish, of having sexually harassed her.

(Though sexual harassment is never okay, it is important to note that Ayissha is openly gay, which adds another upsetting layer to the alleged harassment)

Speaking to The Blast, Ayissha explains what that process of speaking to the police was like.

"I have provided them with my statement and detailed accounts of what I went through."

She has a general message for readers who are curious about her life -- from her appearance on Catfish a few years ago and from her new accusations.

"I ask that you please respect my privacy moving forward."

Of course.

She does not want to answer any more particular questions, in case it interfere with the police as they look into the matter.

"And allow those who are handling the investigation do so without interference."

Of course. Investigators prefer to be the only ones asking questions.

When Ayissha published her accusations, she did so with a great deal of thought, and included a note, writing:

"I don't want attention or money."

So many accuse the accusers of hoping to somehow turn their accusations into fame and fortune, even though most of what accusers face is ridicule.

"Help me spread awareness."

She admits that she feels tormented by the idea that Schulman may have harassed other women while she has remained silent.

"This is a serious topic that I would never lie about."

Allegations of sexual misconduct is about as serious as it gets.

"That would be disgusting for me to lie about something as serious as this. Please understand."

Nev Schulman on Bravo

Schulman is said to have repeatedly verbally harassed Ayissha while the two were not on camera.

At one point, he allegedly told her:

"I have a big d--k. I would tear your a-- up."

There are situations in which that is an okay thing to say to a person. When you are a TV host and your guest is very much not interested is not one of those times.

Nev Schulman has denied the allegations.

MTV is making sure that Catfish does not have any further incidents by suspending production on the current season.

It is always smart to play it safe for many reasons, in terms of ethics, public image, and even potential liability issues.

Unfortunately, sexual misconduct is both extremely difficult to prove or disprove.

Ayissha Morgan may need to find a corroborating witness -- perhaps she already has one -- or at least an outcry witness in order for police to be able to build a case from her report.

Snooki to MTV: PLEASE Bring Back Jersey Shore!

By now, we've all seen the insane new Jersey Shore: Family Vacation trailer.

But how exactly did that come to be?

As it turns out, it's because the cast went to the network and begged for them to make it happen.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Still 01

in an interview with The New York Times, Nicole Polizzi, known to fans and to the rest of the world as Snooki, revealed what it took to make Jersey Shore: Family Vacation a reality.

"We basically were begging MTV to bring us back," she admits.

It sounds like she and her castmates had to do a lot of persuading to make this happen.

"We were begging everyone to bring us back."

A number of cast members had appeared on an informal reunion, hosted by E! a few years back.

But it wasn't the same.

And some of them felt almost adulterous for appearing off of MTV, the network that made them famous on the original Jersey Shore.

Snooki on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation

Jersey Shore was far from the last place where fans and viewers saw their favorite orange, beach-adjacent hooligans. They've all made sure to appear in the public eye.

Pauly D and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro both appeared on E!'s Famously Single.

Deena Cortese showed up on Couples Therapy on VH1.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino showed up on the Food Network, of all places. But the show was called Worst Cooks in America.

Snooki was a contestant on The New Celebrity Apprentice, which was hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and didn't last very long, as Trump fans weren't going to watch without Trump and those who hate Trump weren't going to watch a show on which he was still a producer.

Snooki also made a scripted appearance television appearance on the CW series, Supernatural, as a crossroads demon, though it was several seasons after the series had jumped the shark.

Then, of course, there was Snooki & Jwoww, which actually ran for a few years. That was on MTV.

MTV also experimented with giving Vinny Guadagnino his own series, The Show With Vinny. That one ... did not last a few years.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Pregnant Girlfriend Jen Harley

There was more to making Jersey Shore: Family Vacation happen than the original cast members asking for it, of course.

The time seemed right, for a few reasons.

Though many of the cast members are still relatively young, they're all in different stages of their lives at the moment.

And a lot of people will be interested to see if their version of partying hard has changed now that so many of them are parents.

More significantly, from the network's point of view, is that it looks like viewers are up for seeing some absolute disasters drinking and partying on television.

Apparently the success of Floribama Shore was a factor in deciding to give Jersey Shore: Family Vacation the go-ahead.

In fact, apparently the existence of Floribama Shore generated demand to see where the original Jersey Shore crew is now.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Still 03

Snooki shares that her husband was very encouraging when it came to whether or not she should film this television event.

"He was like, ‘Go, babe, have fun,’" she reveals. "‘Make that money. Enjoy yourself.’"

She did admit that she did have to talk herself into it.

"I had to keep telling myself, yes, you miss the kids, but you can be a bad mom for a little bit."

We don't really think that this qualifies as being a bad mother. Maybe if her child were with her to witness all of the shenanigans, sure.

And she set out to party.

"Go drink. Go blackout. Do what you’ve got to do."

For the record, it's totally possible to drink and party and even get wildly drunk without blacking out. Just ... putting that out there.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Still 02

Since The Situation is headed for prison, this special will sort of be one last hurrah for him. For a while, anyway.

But this will give fans a renewed taste of their old favorites.

MTV is a network that focuses primarily on a teenage audience, but they've made it clear that Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is for returning fans, too.

It's certainly going to be one wild adventure, and it premieres on April 5th.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation: See the Insane New Trailer

Ever since that first teaser trailer for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation dropped, the world has wondered what this over-the-top reunion is going to be like. 

But we don't have to wait for the April 5th premiere date to find out what's in store for these orange hooligans.

A new trailer is out that reveals a lot more, and you can see that below.

Snooki on jersey shore family vacation

Snooki exclaims "We're back, bitches!" in a drawn out way.

It's almost as though they had never left.

But they did leave -- a lot of the stars are parents. They talk up their age a lot, Snooki herself is 30. They're at different stages in their lives, but they're hardly geriatric.

And from the antics in this trailer, in which they drink and drink and drink in South Beach, they aim to prove that they haven't slowed down one bit since they were first horrifying audiences.

Jersey Shore was a reality series that some hailed as deceptively brilliant social commentary and others believed heralded the collapse of society.

But ... maybe it was never that deep. Maybe it was just a bunch of idiots living their lives on camera, you know?

It looks like, in some ways, this revival is going to be more of the same.

Jersey shore family vacation still 01

But things have changed dramatically for so many of these stars.

As we mentioned, some of them are parents, now. They have actual responsibilities.

So while this revival will allow them to "go wild" as they haven't for years, as Jenni "JWOWW" Farley notes, it's likely that they're going to take better care of themselves than they did when they were young.

After all, they'll be going back to their lives as parents after the cameras shut off. The responsibilities of being a parent continue even when you're not with your kids.

Speaking of children, there's one guy who expressed shock, nervousness, and excitement during the trailer because of his own impending fatherhood.

Ronnie ortiz magro and pregnant girlfriend jen harley

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro makes it very clear in this trailer that can't believe that he's going to be a dad.

As you may recall, he didn't find the love of his life on Jersey Shore, but he did in real life.

And now, as you can see from the baby bump in that photo, his girlfriend Jen Harley is very much pregnant.

Of course, not everyone's major life transitions are positive ones.

(Yes, having children is a positive life change if you want children)

No, Snooki teases in the trailer that someone is going to be behind bars.

Jersey shore family vacation still 02

"Dude," Snooki says at one point. "Prison is no joke. It's scary."

She then follows up with a more ominous statement.

"He's literally not going to survive."

Smart money says that the guy headed for prison is Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino since he pleaded guilty to tax fraud.

We don't think that fans need to be picking out an outfit to wear to his presumably public funeral, however.

He's going to prison for tax fraud, which is bad, but not a violent crime. He'll probably have an unpleasant time in prison, because prison is zero fun, but not all prisons are created equally, and he's likely to be placed with other non-violent offenders.

But ... yeah, it's going to suck.

Jersey shore family vacation still 03

Also, these folks drink a lot ... and talk about drinking a lot.

They comment on who smells like alcohol, and they're clearly going out to have a good time -- fist-pumping, of course, included.

One might wonder how much of this is staged. How many drinks are watered down. How many explosions of wild excitement were the results of multiple takes and specific instructions from producers.

But it looks like Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is shaping up to be just as wild of a ride as the original series.

Plus, they're in Florida.

Check out the new trailer:

Jenelle Evans: Who Needs Teen Mom 2? I’ve Got a New Show!

Teen Mom 2 fans know that Jenelle could be fired any day now. Her awful husband David Eason was already fired and many wonder if MTV will continue filming Jenelle's life without her husband

But it looks like Jenelle is already setting up another potential revenue stream.

Is she just being uncharacteristically careful, or ... does this mean that she's actually been fired?

Dave and Jenelle Eason

Jenelle took to social media to share the good news with her followers.

Well ... to share the news, anyway.

"I’m back! Check out new videos on my YouTube soon," she wrote.

She followed it up with further details.

"The adventures start this Friday on 03/16/2018 at 8pm. Go subscribe now."

Oh, and of course this image.

Jenelle Evans Advertises Her YouTube Channel

Social media users were quick to roast Jenelle, first zeroing in on the fact that Teen Mom 2 costar Kailyn Lowry also has a YouTube channel.

"Try harder to be Kail it's hilarious."

Some even brought memes into the mix.

"Damnnnnn Jenelle, back at it again with the copying @KailLowry."

Obviously, comparisons between Jenelle and Kail are unfair.

As evidence when Kailyn slams Jenelle for the latter's bigoted beliefs and actions, Kail is a much kinder and more accepting person than Hurricane Jenelle.

Also, one has to wonder if Kailyn could be as bad of a parent as Jenelle is if she tried.

Jenelle Eason Gun Photo

David Eason was fired for his homophobic and transphobic Twitter tirade.

The strangest thing about that situation may be that he decided, of his own accord, to bring up and promptly condemn LGBT+ parents (for existing) in an attempt to deflect from his own parenting "inadequacies."

And by "inadequacies," we mean that he's allegedly an abusive terror who shouldn't be allowed around a pet rock, let alone a human child.

When David Eason lost the moral high ground to Farrah Abraham, a lot of fans knew that he was toast.

While David's hardly Jenelle's only bad choice -- her personal history is a series of disastrous decisions, one after the other like rungs on a ladder -- fans wonder if his bigoted tweets will end her career.

If Jenelle shares that fear -- or if she already knows that she's been fired and the rest of us just haven't heard yet -- that could definitely explain why she's venturing onto YouTube.

Jenelle Evans in a Bikini and Shades

Of course, if Jenelle is hoping to rake in that sweet, sweet Teen Mom money on YouTube ... she may be in for a nasty surprise.

YouTube can turn streamers into millionaires, sure ... but they're the exceptions.

For starters, if you want to actually make money off of your YouTube channel to any real degree, it's said that you need about a million subscribers. Minimum.

Not views, not likes. Subscribers.

Teen Mom may be a popular franchise, but Jenelle is just one star among many.

Jenelle Eason, David Eason Photo

It's unclear how many followers her YouTube channel, which has been sitting around gathering proverbial dust for years with barely more than 40,000 followers, is going to attract.

And it's similarly unclear what Jenelle means by "off the grid."

Is she going to be vacationing to exotic locales? Venturing into the wilderness? Both of those are expensive, especially for a busy mother. Not exactly ideal for someone who might get sacked from MTV.

Perhaps Jenelle should be venturing onto the "grid" at some point. She wouldn't even need to leave her home state. She could visit cities or either of North Carolina's world class universities and meet people who are different and come to understand and not fear them.

Maybe that "grid" just means MTV, and she'll be "off" of it because she knows that she's getting canned.

We'll have to wait and see.

Nathan Griffith SLAMS David Eason for Homophobic Rant

Earlier this week, David Eason launched into an unprompted homophobic rant on Twitter that horrified fans -- and Teen Mom 2 fans are not easily shocked.

MTV has ended their relationship with David Eason, which makes things even more awkward for the already controversial Jenelle Evans.

Nathan Griffith is stepping up to the plate and condemning David Eason's words.

David Eason on Insta

Just days ago, while arguing with fans on Twitter about his and Jenelle's decidedly pro-gun response to the tragic shooting at a Florida high school on Valentine's Day, David Eason got called out on his atrocious parenting.

(And that's putting it nicely -- fans who've seen him in action wouldn't trust him with a pot roast, let alone a child)

David's response was to pivot by attacking LGBT parents and children, tweeting:

"Why don't you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals. Oh, I forgot, that's supposed to be normal."

There's nothing abnormal or immoral about LGBT parents, but David Eason says that he's going to make sure that his kids steer clear of them.

Jenelle Eason, David Eason Photo

He tweeted:

"I'm going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way...If you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas."

A disgusting sentiment and a deeply offensive analogy. 

When David Eason was accused of homophobia, he decided to take a literal approach to the word's etymology.

"Homophobic? You really lost it now. I'm not scared [of] s--t, especially a homo."

That's right, he decided to make it worse. (By the by, folks, "homo" in this context is a slur, but that's hardly the worst part of his tweets)

MTV pulled the plug, firing David Eason with six weeks of production remaining.

Nathan Griffith Tweet 01

Nathan Griffith sometimes feuds with Jenelle Evans, which really fits the Teen Mom 2 brand because they're exes. And, in particular, he's Jenelle's ex.

And now he's speaking out against her current husband, David Eason.

He started his series of three tweets with well wishes for everyone.

"Please take care everyone! Especially, with the terrorist attacks in the east and the families suffering in Florida."

Every day is one nightmare after another, it seems.

"God bless and remember that God is the only one that judges and loves all his children of all races, sex, personal orientation, and belief."

That seems like a direct reference to David Eason.

Nathan Griffith Tweet 02

He then goes on to admit that (quite frankly, like every man who's ever been in Jenelle Evans' orbit) he is far from perfect, writing:

"I know there are some things that I have said out of pure ignorance on my part."

You know what -- not that it's an excuse -- but everybody's learning all of the time.

"And if I have offended or hurt anyone out there, I am truly sorry and the door is always open to vent or even ask for advice."

That 

Once could cynically suggest that perhaps Nathan is simply hoping to make sure that he never becomes unfilmable, but his message is a positive one.

Nathan Griffith Tweet 03

"I have my own beliefs and my own opinions but to segregated, belittle, and to hate someone based on their opinions, lifestyle, religion, race, and/or sexual orientation is wrong. PERIOD!"

When he talks about segregation, he's clearly talking about David Eason's vow to teach his children to never associate with LGBT people.

He then goes on to lament that people are still having to preach basic equality in 2018.

"It’s 2018! As long as it doesn’t affect your life, then let it go. #lovem​orehateless"

That's a very positive message.

Nathan Griffith With Ashley Lanhardt

Nathan Griffith does have a tendency to come across as the more reasonable of the two when he feuds with Jenelle.

(Admittedly, that's not super hard to do -- we're talking about the Carolina Hurricane here)

We're not going to endorse him for President any time soon, but it's probably fair to say that Nathan said some good and fair things in these tweets.

And he didn't actually mention David Eason by name -- though, obviously, anyone who saw them knew what brought on his statements.

Leah Messer: I’m Glad MTV Fired that Disgusting David Eason!

Leah Messer's not exactly vicious. Compared to some Teen Mom franchise stars, she's positively timid.

So what has her speaking out in no uncertain terms to condemn a member of her own franchise? The same thing that got David Eason fired.

And she's not mincing words.

Leah Messer Selfie

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you're going to see David Eason abruptly vanish from your screens.

Not right away -- and not soon enough for many fans, but MTV has severed all ties with the controversial Teen Mom 2 villain, despite having weeks of production remaining.

Not because he spent time in prison for domestic violence and not because he's accused of continuing to terrorize and abuse his and Jenelle's children ... though how that wasn't a dealbreaker for the network has left many scratching heads.

But because of his very public and impossible-to-ignore homophobic and transphobic rant on Twitter.

Jenelle Evans and David Eason Wedding Pic

It started as David Eason continued to obsess over guns in the wake of Jenelle's controversial gun photo from just hours after the devastating Florida shooting.

A conversation on Twitter quickly turned to David Eason's parenting (because many wouldn't trust this guy around a houseplant, let alone a child), and David Eason decided to, of his own volition, pivot to slam LGBT folks.

"Lmao why don't you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot that's supposed to be normal."

That is, of course, a horrifying thing to tweet for anyone. Not only does it imply that LGBT parents are somehow unfit parents, but that they and their families are abnormal.

And then he doubled down.

David Eason and Jenelle

Someone else tweeted, asking if David Eason planned to teach his children to hate gay and transgender people.

"No I'm going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way ... If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas."

One, teaching your children to not associate with LGBT people is teaching them bigotry.

Two, you absolutely cannot "teach" someone to not be who they are, only to deny and hide it, leading to a miserable existence.

Three, that analogy with the dogs and fleas isn't true for any responsible pet owners. Yes, that's beside the point, but it's worth noting.

And finally, four: His inaccurate analogy also implies that LGBT folks are somehow filthy.

Jenelle Eason, David Eason Photo

Obviously, David Eason was slammed for his homophobic rant, because there is still good in the world and even on Twitter.

Jenelle Evans also caught some well-deserved flack. People asked if she wants her children raised to be angry bigots.

MTV's response had real consequences -- they severed their relationship with David Eason immediately.

With weeks of production left, he won't receive any further money.

One can be cynical and say that MTV is worried about sponsors pulling out (which, to be clear, they definitely were), but perhaps producers and execs also have certain lines that they won't allow stars to cross.

Teen Mom 2 is down one villain.

Leah Messer Teen Mom 2 Pic

In a statement to Us Weekly, even the normally non-confrontational Leah Messer supports David Eason's firing.

"I am disgusted by the recent statements made by David Eason and support MTV’s decision to fire him 100 percent."

She's really not mincing words. She was nicer than this when Jenelle Evans called her a cheating drug addict.

"This ignorance cannot be tolerated and I refuse to be associated with hatred of any kind."

Good for Leah Messer for taking this strong moral stance.

"I stand in solidarity with my friends and family in the LGBTQ community and applaud MTV for their quick and decisive action."

Jenelle Evans with David Eason

Of course, even if David Eason's no longer on the payroll, he's still married to Jenelle and she's still a Teen Mom 2 star.

With all of the fame and all of that sweet, sweet Teen Mom money that comes with it.

Is it only a matter of time before the Teen Mom 2 archvillain is held accountable? Not just for the things that she says, but for the frightening way that she raises her children?

Or is that more of a job for social services and the courts and not really MTV's job?

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant – Meet the Controversial Cast!

Over the years, many critics have blasted MTV for the creation of the Teen Mom franchise.

These individuals have questioned whether it was a great idea to make celebrities out of young women who were expecting babies, thereby glorifying a development that may be the most challenging one a person can face.

It's now clear that the cable network has considered these objections, weighed them carefully...

new teen mom

... and then totally and completely ignored such chatter for the sake of ratings.

On Monday night, MTV debuted the first teaser for Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, a redundantly named spinoff of Teen Mom; which, itself, was a spinoff of 16 and Pregnant.

(Remember the days when MTV actually aired music videos? Neither do we.)

According to the official network announcement, the series will track the lives of five expecting women and "show the highs and lows of their pregnancy journeys -- and the unbelievable changes they endure after the babies are born.

"From excitement to fear, this group of girls will take viewers inside their emotional lives."

Because this is exactly what vulnerable teenager who are about to become parents really need: to share their emotional lives with millions of strangers.

mom, baby

MTV goes on to write that "Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 women have shown us through the years... [that] worlds are about to change forever and [when] it's time to "mom up."

Yes, mom up.

MTV just turned parenthood into a catchphrase.

We're shocking it didn't include a hashtag along with it.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant will premiere on Monday, March 12 at 10/9c, following a new installment of Teen Mom OG.

Check out the preview below:

As for the young women at the center of the upcoming reality show?

Prepare to meet them below...

Ashley, 20: Described as a typical party girl in Las Vegas, she and her boyfriend, Bariki (Bar) recently found out they were having a baby.

Their own mothers are "constantly at odds," MTV teases, which not only causes issues within their relationship, "but palpable friction between Bar and Ashley’s mom."

Brianna, 17: She and her transgender boyfriend Danae have always had an up-and-down relationship. During one split, Brianna slept with an old friend and got pregnant.

young, preggers

However, now Danae is back in the picture and has vowed to raise the baby as his own... yet Brianna’s mom questions Danae’s ability to support her child.

Jade, 20: From an unstable relationship with her parents to her boyfriend Sean, Jade has always taken care of others, the network writes.

Now that she’s expecting her first baby, she's aware that she’ll need her parents support more than ever and she's worried that she won’t be able to rely on them.

Kayla, 18: Described as "the girl next door," Kayla apparently had a rude awakening when she discovered she was expecting.

Kayla was raised by a single mother and therefore understands the sacrifices and struggles such a life requires.

While her own pregnancy wasn’t planned, Kayla was excited to have a baby with her long-time boyfriend, Stephan.

But now she's struggling with the choice to stay in the relationship for the sake of her baby or raise the little one on her own.

Lexi, 17: From a small town, she's the head cheerleader and she's part of a supportive and loving family.

She also got pregnant by her boyfriend of four years, Kyler. 

As a result, she feels isolated from her friends and has become the subject of her small, conservative town’s gossip mill.

MTV asks: Will she be able to recover her reputation, or will she forever be known as the good girl gone bad?

Will you be tuning in for Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant?

Adam Lind: Buddy Arrested for Meth, No One Shocked

Literally just yesterday, we talked about how Jennelle Evans' ex Kieffer Delp was arrested for running a meth lab

Today, we're once again talking about a man who runs in Teen Mom circles ... and, in the same breath, we're talking about meth. And getting arrested.

This time, it's a friend of Adam Lind's. In fact, the two are such good buddies that this guy appeared on Teen Mom 2.

Justin Anderson

Adam Lind testing positive for methamphetamines right before a scheduled visit with the child that he and Chelsea Houska share hasn't done anything to clear his reputation of being a bit of a meth head.

It doesn't help that Lind's arrest for assault actually involved four charges of domestic assault and allegations that he was out of his mind on drugs during his alleged  domestic violence.

At the very least, the guy's a mess. And based upon the charges and allegations against him, he's a menace.

Everyone understands why Chelsea Houska moved to strip Lind of his visitation rights. When it comes to children, a child's safety must always trump parental wishes.

Adam Lind Meth

Even if Adam totally manages to get clean and, you know, non-violent, he still might not be a safe person for Aubree to be around. 

Because of the company that he keeps.

Justin Anderson has appeared on Teen Mom 2 more than once, thanks to his friendship with Chelsea Houska's baby daddy, Adam Lind.

And now, Justin Anderson has been arrested for possession of a controlled substance and for possession or use of drug paraphernalia. 

The arrest took place on Wednesday, January 10th. At the time, Anderson was already on parole for different drug charges.

Justin Anderson Mugshot

A spokesperson for the Minnehaha County Jail told RadarOnline:

"Anderson remains in prison with no bond."

Well, yeah. Drug possession isn't the worst thing in the world, but if you're on parole for drugs and you still can't resist meth ... that's worrisome. Also, not a great idea, since your parole can be revoked at any time.

"His parole officer put a hold on him for breaking his parole."

Yep.

"It is the parole officer’s decision on when he’ll be released."

Adam Lind Muscles

Justin Anderson was caught by, basically, having bad luck. And perhaps for having some terrible associations.

(And we don't just mean Adam Lind)

See, police were serving a search warrant on a suspect in a double homicide.

And by "serving a search warrant," we mean that SWAT was involved. We don't know if they actually knocked before raiding the place.

They did not find the suspected killer. They did find Justin Anderson and, allegedly, Anderson's meth.

Adam Lind Steroids Photo

Aside from the fact that this comes right on the heels of Jenelle Evans' ex getting arrested for running a meth lab ...

(If there's such a thing as bad press for Teen Mom, this surely would be it, right?)

... What, you might ask, does this have to do with Adam Lind?

It's simple. Even if Adam Lind can drop drugs and steroids and drinking and violence altogether, if he keeps associating with people like Justin Anderson, it's very understandable for Chelsea Houska (and anyone worried about the safety of children) to have concerns about little Aubree's well-being.

Does Adam want to be a parent, or do you want to be a 'roided out meth head with meth head buddies?

This should be an easy choice.
