Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau: Is the Baby Coming Soon?!?

While Javi Marroquin continues to clash with his ex-wife over their past, many questions continue to be asked about this reality star's future.

Specifically, about his future with Lauren Comeau.

Lauren Comeau with Javi M

The couple, of course, stunned celebrity gossip followers back in late May when they announced they were expecting a baby.

This news came mere months after Javi split from Briana DeJesus and also stopped hooking up (again) with Kailyn Lowry.

Marroquin and Comeau had met at a wedding last summer and actually dated briefly in 2017... until they reportedly broke up because Javi slept with another woman.

We haven't been here to judge, however, simply to wish these two and their impending child the best.

Perhaps Javi really is a changed man and will dedicate himself entirely to this new family. You never know, right?

Along with the baby bombshell, meanwhile, has come various speculation regarding Comeau, considering she's now very much involved with a prominent MTV personality.

Lauren Comeau is Pregnant

As we've posted about over the past few weeks...

... will she appear on Teen Mom 2?

... will she and Marroquin get married?

... heck, are they already married?

Now, based on the photos above and below of Comeau, we can add another inquiry to this list:

JUST WHEN IS LAUREN DUE?!?

Taking to both basic Instagram and her Instagram Stories page over the past week or so, Comeau has shown off her baby bump on multiple occasions.

And it ain't small!

Lauren Comeau: Baby Bumpin!

All Comeau and Marroquin have said thus far is that their son will enter this world at some point in 2018.

That much is clearly true, but the size of Lauren's precious tummy makes it appear here as if their son may enter the world at some point in the fall of 2018.

We make note of this partly because it's very exciting and it will be cool to meet yet another baby produced by a member of the Teen Mom 2 cast.

But also because Comeau's due date does make one wonder when she and Marroquin got it on and whether he cheated on DeJesus with his baby-mama-to-be.

The timeline does cause fans to ponder this possibility.

Javi and Lauren Comeau in Swimsuits

Whether or not Javi stepped out on Briana, though, he and Lauren appear to be going strong.

They are posing together in a number of Instagram photos, often with Marroquin and Lowry's son, Lincoln.

Lauren has also now moved to Delaware and is shacking up with her famous lover.

At some point, Javi swears, wedding bells will even ring for the eventual parents.

"Definitely in the future I will propose," the MTV star recently told Radar Online, quelling rumors that they were already betrothed.

He says it will happen, he promises, but he and Comeau have something else to concern themselves with in the meantime.

Or someone else, we should say:

"The focus is on the baby first." 

Leah Messer Addresses All Those Pregnancy Rumors

Leah Messer is pregnant, people!

The Teen Mom 2 star shared the following photo on Instagram this week, which basically served as confirmation of this amazing news.

See it for yourself and then join the many social media users who have already sent Messer their very best wishes...

Leah Messer Baby Bump Pic?

Wait, what's that?

This picture is NOT evidence that Messer is expecting her fourth child?

Already the mother to Adalynn, Aliannah and Aleeah, Messer posted the above image on Instagram and wrote along with it as a caption:

Once you start to believe in yourself, magic starts happening! Self confidence is a super power! #aaa #love #liveyourstandard

For whatever reason, based simply on these words and the snapshot featured here, fans leaped to the conclusion that Messer was with child.

Just consider the following comments left in response to the picture:

Is she PREGANANT??

Is that a a baby bump???? You're sooo beautiful!!

I see a baby bump too.

Def Preggo I’m sure she will spill the beans in a couple months. Hopefully this baby daddy will stay this time.

Yes, these very self-assured statements were made simply because some people looked at the lead image in this article.

Leah Messer Close Up

So... is it true? Is Leah Messer really pregnant again?

In a word? No.

In a few more words, written on Instagram by Messer herself?

"You guys are sweet and NOOOOO I'm not pregnant. What the," she responded to this speculation, including three face palm emojis with her reply.

With rumors circulating about the wombs of both Leah and Maci Bookout, the latter re-Tweeted a funny comment made by a Teen Mom fan on Twitter, who sarcastically congratulated both women on their babies-to-be:

maci and leah

We also love that.

Messer, meanwhile, is in love with a new man, which may be another reason why folks think she's expecting.

She now has someone with whom she may want to raise another child and his name is Jason Jordan.

He's a little bit older, but the relationship is now serious enough for Leah and Jason to have made it Instagram official.

These two do look pretty cute together here, don't they?

Jason Jordan Smiles with Leah

Still, wedding bells are not about to ring for the MTV personality.

No baby showers are planned.

With three kids at home already and a relatively new man in her life, we're pretty sure Messer has enough going on in her life without adding another tiny human being to her brood.

Does this mean she'll never be pregnant again? No, we're not saying that.

We're just saying she isn't pregnant right now.

Jenelle Evans Denies Plastic Surgery … Well Except For Two Huge Things

Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 fame is subject to many wild rumors and intense speculation, from her romantic relationships to her looks.

Obviously, she's not the most reliable narrator of her own life story, as her relationship with the truth is about as stable as Sarah Sanders'.

Jenelle and Ensley

When it comes to plastic surgery she's undergone, however, the Carolina Hurricane will cop to it ... and deny it at the same time.

Two days ago, Jenelle posted the above photo with her daughter, Ensley, wearing matching swimsuits by Evans' pool with no fence.

Jenelle's swimsuit, a form-fitting, low-cut one-piece that would make Jessa Duggar swimsuit fans, reads simply "Mama."

Ensley's matching swimsuit, naturally, has "Got it From My Mama" emblazoned on it. So sweet and clever, right? Well ...

Enter the Instagram peanut gallery:

Jenelle Evans Dude Shirt

"Not to be rude," one commenter writes, knowing damn well they are about to be very rude, "but mama got it from plastic surgery."

Oooh. Good one, random Jenelle "fan."

Never one to back down from a fight, whether she's beating up Brittany or sparring with Tori, Jenelle clapped back with this response:

"Only boobs sweetheart" *kiss emoji*

Well, there you have it, people.

They are not real by any stretch of the imagination, but they are still spectacular ... at least according to her husband, David Eason.

Jenelle Evans Weird Bikini Pic

Many Evans supporters praised her for keeping it real and keeping the shade to a minimum, but others weren't as convinced.

Jenelle was trolled on her page over everything from her lip fillers to her alleged photoshopping of her baby bump, er, her stomach.

See above.

In this photo David shared last week, an unretouched Jenelle clearly shows the affect of all those pregnancies on her stomach.

Which is FINE. She looks great. That pose is super awkward, suggestive and may scar us for life, but we're NOT dissing her weight.

Jenelle Evans Photoshopped Ad

It's this photo (above) that's causing controversy, however, when juxtaposed with the previous Cinemax-ready, leg-spreading effort. 

As you can see, and are familiar with if you know Jenelle, this is a sponsored Instagram post for that detox tea she shills for.

Take a closer look and you'll see why the general consensus is that she Photoshopped the ever-loving crap out of this image.

"Your photoshopped photo doesn't make you look very good," one fan commented, echoing the sentiments of many others.

Jenelle Evans' Best Picture

"Omg that photoshopping is horrendous," said another, piling on criticism. "Even your leggings look screwed up like a skirt."

"Is there anything you can do right?"

Well, that's just plain harsh right there.

Just the same, fans offered to lend a hand to her editing skills, picking apart exactly how bad the latest tea-shilling post is.

Specifically, one Evans Instagram aficionado pointed out that "where her tummy is you can see that wood line bending."

Rough. But not enough to keep her down!

Despite the drama of this spring and summer, "Jenelle will likely begin shooting this week," according to The Ashley's Reality Roundup.

That's right, she'll be returning to Teen Mom 2, despite MTV firing David Eason, Barbara Evans' claims that he beats her, etc.

It's been a crazy summer, even for her.

"They are going to film Jenelle with Barbara [Evans] and do a basic catch-up on what’s been happening in Jenelle’s life,” an insider added.

That "basic" catch-up could take weeks.

Kailyn Lowry: New Book an "Apology to Lux For the Mess He Was Born Into"

We've seen Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry use Twitter to destroy body-shamers, but she also uses social media to chat with followers ... and to share great news.

Kail's been working on her book, A Letter of Love, which promises to tell a whole side story about her life that MTV's cameras have never captured.

That book is now printing!

Selfie with Lux

Taking to Twitter, Kailyn tweeted: "Beyond excited!"

No, this isn't excitement about her fight with Briana DeJesus. This is something very positive.

"My publisher @iamardreorie just delivered the news," Kail gushes.

Kailyn then reveals "that copies of my new book 'A Letter of Love' are printing!"

That is so exciting!

Kailyn Lowry Smile

"And," Kailyn continues. "The support from you guys has been overwhelming!"

Kail is a sweetheart and she always gives a shout-out to her fans.

"I’m finally telling my side of the story," she writes.

Remember, everything that we've seen on Teen Mom 2 has been told through the lens (literally!) of MTV.

Their job is to make entertainment, not tell Kail's story.

That's okay, but it means that a lot of fans don't have the real picture. Kailyn tweets that she can share her narrative "my way." At last.

Playing on the Beach

Back in January, Kailyn explained the origins of her new tell-all book.

"The book was an apology letter to Lux," Kail revealed.

Sometimes, the idea for a book grows out of a single thought or piece of writing -- even a tweet.

Kailyn shared that she was apologizing "for basically the mess he was born into."

That sounds so healthy. More parents should take the time to consider the world into which they're bringing children.

A lot of kids are owed apologies.

Lowry and Sons

"And," Kailyn continued, she also wanted to express to Lux "how bad I feel."

Naturally, it grew into something a little more -- and Kailyn's book is about her sons Lincoln and Isaac, too.

Kailyn explained: "But now it's to all three of them."

"I feel bad and I’m nervous about how a lot of my decisions will impact them or affect them," Kailyn explained.

"So I’m apologizing to all of them," Kail said. "And I want them to know how much I love them and I’m working now to pick up the pieces."

Kailyn and Her Family

We think that they know better than anyone how much she loves them and how she does her best for them every day.

A Letter of Love is currently available for preorder from 13 & Joan Publishing.

Kail is no newcomer to the publishing scene, of course. She's already an author.

Fans are of course familiar with Hustle and Heart and with Pride Over Pity

I'd say that I'm crushed that she's deviating from alliteration for this new book, but she did that before with Love is Bubblegum.

(Kail is so busy!)

Unfortunately, we all remember when Chris Lopez burned a copy of Kailyn's last book. It was not one of his finer moments.

Hopefully, this new book can avoid meeting a similar fate. After all, it is about and written to Chris' son.

David Eason’s Mom Slams Barbara Evans: He Doesn’t Beat Jenelle! Shut Yer Yap! [Exclusive]

Barbara Evans has been outspoken when it comes to her daughter Jenelle Evans’ husband David Eason, who she believes is dangerous.

David's own mother tells a different story, however, telling Barb off in a lengthy missive shared exclusively with The Hollywood Gossip.

Jenelle, Dave Eason

According to Barbara, David is a violent, aggressive, hot-tempered, controlling yahoo - with a penchant for firearms, no less. 

Bit of a worrisome combination right there.

On the Teen Mom 2 reunion on Monday, August 13, Jenelle Evans didn’t show up, but Barbara did - and she didn't hold back.

Babs openly speculated on MTV that Jenelle no-showed the reunion because her husband wouldn't let her out of his sight.

“I don’t feel Jenelle is OK,” Barbara said.

“I’m just so so so worried.”

Jenelle Evans, David Eason and Barbara Evans

Due to David Eason's aggression and love of guns, Barbara even said, “I’m going to be the first one shot cause I live closest.”

“It scares me," she said of living in fear of him.

"He could come over and kill me any time.”

Scary stuff ... but complete nonsense, according to another figure who claims she knows him - and his family - better than Barbara:

David's mom, Mary Jo Eason.

Barb Evans

Having heard several versions of this same, savage theme from Barb (above), Mary Jo has had just about enough, telling THG:

“I don't like to comment on all of this because someone will be there to tell me they know more than I do about my own son!"

"My son does not beat Jenelle or boss her around! He doesn't beat the children!" she adds, before addressing Babs directly:

"Barb you know he doesn't! Tell the truth and shame the devil! You should be trying to help your daughter and her family."

David, Jenelle Eason

"You never say anything nice," she says, pointedly directed at a woman she believes lies, manipulates and distorts the truth.

"You hated David from the start ... you would rather be on that stupid show then [sic] be a loving parent and grandmother!"

(Jenelle has echoed this sentiment recently, accusing her mom of using her for fame and alleging that Barbara is the real child abuser.

The younger Evans also called 911 on Babs last winter, claiming that her mom had harmed or was going to harm son Jace.)

Mary Jo, she says, is "there every week," while Ensley, David and Jenelle's young daughter, "doesn't even know [Barbara]." 

"How can you keep right on saying horrible things about my son? They are happy and you can't stand it! I'm so sick of so many lies!" 

"Our children and grandchildren don't deserve to be pawns in your nasty games!" Mary Jo continues, pleading with Barbara to stop.

"I've always been nice to you and your daughter and your grandchildren. How about try to put love and understanding and help in their lives."

Jenelle Evans' Best Picture

"Family and love for your family is all that matters," Mary Jo pleads. "Please be honest and stop your vendetta."

"You are only a year older than me. Don't you know with each passing day our time in this Earth gets shorter."

Damn. Now she's getting deep.

In closing, David's mother wants Barbara - and everyone else - to think before they repeat what they think is true.

There are usually multiple sides to a story, but she implies that Barb (and the media) only follow one narrative.

David and Jenelle Eason Photo

Obviously, David Eason is a bit of a loose cannon who has a bit of a temper. That much is obvious to any Teen Mom 2 viewer.

But his mom's point isn't that he's a saint, it's that claiming he's going beat or shoot someone with no provocation is way out of bounds.

"All of you that keep saying things because you just think them should search your heart and soul and stop," she concludes.

"David is my son and I know him better than all of you that don't! I'm sure I'll have to delete this but I have to speak up for my son."

"He loves his family.”

Well, there you have his side of the story. Do you believe her? Or is David every bit the dangerous person Barbara alleges?

Discuss.

Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus: Still Planning to Fight?!

Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus have been feuding for nearly an entire year now, and things almost got physical at the taping of the Teen Mom 2 reunion back in May.

It was pretty intense, but it also happened three months ago.

Do Kailyn and Briana still hate each other? Are they still interested in resolving their issues by exchanging some blows?

Let's find out!

1. Come On, Ladies

Kailyn and briana
If you watched last week's Teen Mom 2 special, or even if you just keep up with all the latest gossip, then you know about that fight that Kailyn and Briana got into with each other.

2. Oh Hey, Brittany!

Brittany dejesus
Well, the fight they got into with a special appearance from Briana's sister, Brittany.

3. Fighting Words

Kail lowry on teen mom 2
Although they'd been feuding for months after Briana started dating Javi, Kailyn's ex-husband, Briana kicked things up a notch with a certain comment she made on Instagram.

4. So Rude

Chris lopez and lux
In that comment, Briana alleged that Chris Lopez, the father of Kailyn's third child, beats her in front of her children. It's not hard to figure out why Kailyn had an issue with that.

5. Throwing Down

Kailyn lowry glasses
So when everybody was gathered backstage, preparing to film the Unseen Moments special, Kail decided that she wanted to meet with Briana privately, without cameras, to talk things out.

6. Well ...

Except she pulled her hair back and put on some sneakers, so it seemed like she was expecting a little bit of action, too.

Chris Lopez to Teen Mom 2 Fans: Leave Me Alone!

Don't get Chris Lopez wrong, okay?

He almost definitely did not mean to impregnate Kailyn Lowry back in the day, but this doesn't mean he now regrets it.

Feeling such a way would mean that Lopez wishes his son, Lux, were not alive -- and we think it's very safe to assume this isn't the case.

Especially of late, it seems as though Lopez has really taken to this parenthood thing, most notably the way he attended Lux's first birthday party, even posing for a special family photo.

But the unprotected slipping of his P into Kailyn's V has turned Lopez into a quasi celebrity.

This comes with a few perks, but also with a handul of hindrances.

Based on the Tweets below, it's clear Lopez wishes he were far less known than he used to be. Scroll down to see what we mean...

1. The Saga of Chris Lopez

Kailyn lowry chris lopez split
Lopez briefly dated Lowry back in 2016. This relationship led to a pregnancy, although Kailyn worked hard to keep her third baby daddy's identity secret until May of 2017.

2. Were They Ever Together as a Couple?

Chris lopez burns kailyns book
We think so, but not since the pregnancy was revealed to the public and not since little Lux entered the world. For the most part, Chris has barely even been involved in his child's life.

3. Has Lopez Ever Appeared on Teen Mom 2?

Chris lopez with baby lux
No. But he's been referenced by Kailyn, often in a negative light. She was very frustrated for the first few months of her son's life because Lopez made little to no effort to see Lux.

4. But He Would Occasionally Pose on Social Media with Lux

Chris lopez and lux
Yes. This actually annoyed Lowry even more because she thought Chris was merely pretending to be a responsible parent in public. She slammed him as an "Instagram" (and deadbeat) dad.

5. But Now?

Kailyn and her family
Look at the picture above. It was snapped on Lux's first birthday. Lopez and Lowry must be somewhat amicable at this point, right?

6. Still, There's Backlash

Lux and his dad
There's A LOT of backlash against Lopez, in fact. And it sounds as if he's sick of taking crap from Lowry supporters and/or Teen Mom 2 viewers.

Chelsea Houska Shares New Maternity Photos, is the Actual Best

Pregnant Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska is marking the final days of her third pregnancy with some stunning new maternity photos.

We don't throw the word "stunning" around lightly, but let's be real: Chelsea's latest maternity shots certainly earn that designation.

Chelsea DeBoer Pic

The Housk gave photo credit to Kate Jones and baby credit to husband Cole DeBoer on Instagram when sharing the above image.

You know, because she took the breathtaking photos of her, and he put the baby in there. Well done, both of you. Good work.

Naturally, because it's Chelsea, the responses were much more positive than you'd normally see on the Internet these days.

Especially for a cast member of Teen Mom 2.

Chelsea DeBoer Pregnant

“I so wish I would have done a pretty maternity shoot when I was pregnant,” one woman wrote, in the ultimate compliment.

“I always [thought] that it was corny," the Houska fan added, "but @ChelseaHouska has changed my mind. STUNNING.”

Chelsea is changing lives, people.

In all seriousness, Houska actually agreed, responding to that tweet by revealing that she had similar thoughts about this process.

She writes: “I’ve never done them either, definitely out of my comfort zone! But the photographer talked me into it and I’m SO glad I did!” 

Chelsea Houska Maternity Pic

It's hard to argue that the pride of South Dakota makes pregnancy look maternal and sexy, which is not the easiest thing to pull off.

Good lighting helps, but still.

It's even harder to argue that Chelsea has defied the odds by settling in to a very happy, drama-free and quiet life these days.

With the exception of the dark cloud that is Adam Lind hanging over her as he always will to some degree, she's on cloud nine.

As her dad, Randy, says, she flies so far under the radar that MTV forgets she exists. Maybe not quite, but you get his point.

Classic Chelsea

For a show focused on drama - on and off the air - this is no easy feat, especially in today's 24-hour news and social media enviroment.

We've now reached the point where producers are accused of enabling or encouraging feuds, as Chelsea and Kailyn Lowry alleged.

The fact that Chelsea and Cole continue to share their lives with TV viewers, yet maintain their boundaries and stability, is impressive.

We'd argue she's the real MVP of the show.

Houska, of course, shares a daughter, Aubree, with Lind. She recently welcomed Aubree's little brother, Watson Cole DeBoer.

With the arrival of her third baby next month, her precious family is ready to become even cuter, if that's humanly possible.

David Eason: Kailyn Lowry Needs to Be FIRED From Teen Mom 2!

If you watched Monday night's Teen Mom 2 reunion special, then you're well aware that it was a night to remember for Kailyn Lowry.

Just not in a good way. At all.

Kailyn nearly fought with Briana DeJesus, physically, on two separate occasions, leaving onlookers concerned for their safety.

The incidents were so severe, even by recent Teen Mom standards, that others on set later revealed that they felt unsafe too.

It was enough to bring to mind the violent antics of former cast member David Eason, who was fired from the show last year.

Now, the husband of Jenelle Evans is coming after Kail in a big way and demanding that MTV fire the beloved fan favorite.

Why? We'll let him explain.

Oh, but at the same time as Eason attacks Lowry and the network, someone else is hurling some shocking allegations his way.

Suffice it to say, this is rapidly escalating into a scary situation that could have major repercussions for everyone involved ...

 

1. The Gruesome Twosome

Jenelle evans kissy face with david eason
David Eason, who has a history of controversy and violence, has already been fired from Teen Mom 2. Jenelle might be the next to go after she brandished a weapon in the presence of crew members. But that hasn't stopped them from speaking out against their co-stars' behavior.

2. The Absolute Worst

David eason kaden
David, as we said, was fired for hurling bigoted slurs at fans of the show on social media. But, as those who watch and follow the franchise no, Eason also gave producers and executives plenty of other reasons to give him the boot prior to that.

3. Reunion Rager

David eason allergic to shirts
At the last Teen Mom 2 reunion show he attended, David got drunk, pulled out a knife, and began slashing decorative balloons at a cast party, much to the chagrin of his co-stars, some of whom had their kids in attendance. Takes a lot to shock this crowd, given some of the hard lives they've led, but he pulled it off.

4. A Strange Obsession

Jenelle eason and david eason pic
Six months later, David is still stewing about being canned, and the alleged hypocrisy displayed by the network in giving him the pink slip. We suppose, then, that it should come as no surprise that he had much to say about Kail's behavior on Monday night's show.

5. Chopping Up Kail

David eason on insta
"So Kailyn Lowry is allowed to openly promote violence on set?" Eason wrote on Facebook on August 8, referring to her recent tussle with Briana DeJesus, who joined the cast last season and quickly became an archrival of Lowry.

6. Going Off

Jenelle evans david eason on instagram
"Then MTV promotes the violence by airing every second that Kailyn screamed that she wanted to hit Brianna so many times!" David added, following this week's explosive reunion show. "Wow, it's okay to physically and verbally attack each other on the set with MTV!!!"

Leah Messer Flaunts Relationship With Scandalous New Boyfriend on Instagram!

Leah Messer's love life is a subject of constant fascination among Teen Mom 2 fans.

For a while there it looked as though Leah would get back together with Jeremy Calvert, but when that reconciliation fizzled out, Ms. Messer quickly rebounded.

Jason Jordan and Leah Messer

These days, Leah is dating Jason Jordan, and while he seems to make her immensely happy, some fans have taken issue with the budding romance.

Over the weekend, Leah documented her latest couple's getaway on Instagram, and some fans saw the pics as an opportunity to reiterate their complaints.

For one thing, Jason is much older than Leah (she's 26; he's 38).

It's not the kind of cradle-robbery that makes you want to alert the authorities, but it's enough of an age gap to raise a few eyebrows.

Jason Jordan Smiles with Leah

Especially since despite the fact that he's pushing 40, Jason still seems to have quite a bit of growing up to do.

Naturally, once word of the relationship went public, fans started doing their research and dug up everything they could about Jason.

The most interesting thing they unearthed was a series of YouTube videos in which Jason played a character named West Virginia Meth Man.

Now, as far as we know, Jason never dabbled in meth himself.

Leah Messer and Jason Jordan

And it appears he was just poking fun at some of the more, um ... colorful residents of his home state.

Still many found the skits to be in poor taste, particularly one video in which Jason (as Meth Man) commented on the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal.

"Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice," quoth Meth Man.

"Think he can go around punching women in the mouth, knocking them out cold. When I was high on meth one time I did that and nobody got mad. They just expect it out of me!"

Jason Jordan Photo

Now, that's obviously not the most tasteful joke, but anyone accusing Jason of condoning violence against women would be willfully misrepresenting the bit.

Should he have just refrained from joking about domestic violence at all? Probably?

But the crux of the gag is that only the most repugnant individuals -- your Ray Rices and your Meth Mans -- would engage in such behavior.

To be clear, the Meth Man routine isn't particularly funny, and Leah is probably overjoyed by the fact that her boyfriend has retired the character.

But a few seriously unfunny skits shouldn't be a deal breaker -- otherwise, Ariana Grande would have to dump Pete Davidson! Zing!

Ryan Edwards Opens Up About Latest Arrest: I Messed Up! Again!

Last month, Ryan Edwards was arrested for the third time in less than 18 months.

This time around, local authorities were understandably less confident in Ryan's ability to keep from messing up again, so they held him in police custody for a week.

These days, however, he's a free man -- for the time being.

Ryan is due back in court on August 23, and if he's convicted for his latest probation violation, he could face up to a year in prison.

So it's a bit surprising that the usually press-shy Ryan has decided to speak to the media about his legal troubles.

His lawyers probably weren't crazy about the decision, but if we've learned anything about Ryan over these past two years, it's that the man is not big on following rules:

1. Hard Times

Ryan edwards mug shot new
On July 23, Ryan was taken into police custody after being pulled over for speeding. As this was a violation of his probation, he was held without bail.

2. An Unexpected Release

While it was expected that he would be held until his court date, Ryan was released from jail in the wee hours of August 2.

3. A Slap on the Wrist

Ryan edwards on teen mom o g
To the surprise of many -- including, probably, himself -- Ryan received a suspended sentence and six months of additional probation for failing a court-ordered drug test earlier this year. But he's not out of the woods yet ...

4. Not Out of the Woods

Ryan edwards on teen mom photo
Ryan still has plenty of legal headaches ahead of him. In July, he was taken into custody not only for speeding but for failing to complete his last round of community service.

5. Spilling the Tea

Now, Ryan is speaking out about his most recent brush with the law, and he's being much more straightforward about the ordeal than many fans expected.

6. What Did You Expect?

Kailyn Lowry Shades Jenelle Evans: She’s a TERRIBLE Mom!

Last month, Jenelle Evans's youngest son Kaiser celebrated his birthday.

Evans posted photos of the big day, but fans took issue with the fact that the bulk of the celebration ... at a daycare facility.

Based on the comments on Jenelle's pic, it seems her followers were spilt on the question of whether or not that's an acceptable way to celebrate a toddler's birthday.

Some say it's perfectly fine -- after all, what preschooler doesn't want to be showered with attention by a couple dozen of his peers?

Others, however, thought the move was Jenelle in a nutshell -- a lazy gesture that's documented for social media in order to give the impression what she's a doting mom.

"Not a fan of JE, but why on earth are we judging people’s parenting at all, let alone based on b-day parties?" remarked one follower.

(Editor's note: It's perfectly acceptable to judge Jenelle Evans' parenting, as she's awful at in roughly 99.999 percent of the time.)

Anyway, as is usually the case with Jenelle, she had more detractors than supporters, and one of them was none other than her longtime Teen Mom 2 castmate, Kailyn Lowry.

Kailyn celebrated her son Lux's birthday, and she basically pulled a reverse-Jenelle.

Kail went all out for the party and even posed with Lux's dad, Chris Lopez, for the trio's first-ever family photo.

Of course, this is 2018, a time in which everything that everyone does is subjected to intense scrutiny and criticism, so it should come as no surprise that Kail was also roasted online.

Fans accused her of "over-celebrating" for Lux, as she never hosted such a massive shindig for her older sons.

Many fans came to Kail's defense and that, boys and girls, is how Ms. Lowry once again found herself butting heads with the Carolina Hurricane.

At one point in the discussion, Kail retweeted the following comment:

Holding Lux

"There has been a lot of discussion about how @KailynLowry has 'forgotten' she has two other kids, or went so extra for Lux's bday but never did the same for the other boys.

"Guys give her a break, she didn't pull a JE and take them to daycare with Walmart cupcakes. She's a good mom."

Jenelle has yet to respond, but we're guessing she's less than thrilled, as is far from the first time that Kail has criticized her parenting.

Following Jenelle's road rage incident, Kail -- like pretty much else who watched the show -- remarked that Jenelle is an absolute psychopath for putting her child's life at risk in such a reckless fashion.

The jury may still be out on Wal-Mart cupcakes, but surely we can all agree that stuff like that makes Jenelle an unfit mom.

Kailyn Lowry Destroys Body-Shamer on Twitter: I Wear What I Want!

We all know that Kailyn Lowry isn't afraid to throw down, whether it's in a bonkers fight with Brianna DeJesus or when she's firing a producer who violated her trust.

So when some troll on Twitter had the audacity to try to body-shame her, it's no surprise to see her hit back.

Take a look at how she clapped back!

Some absolute troll took to Twitter to admonish Kail and her bff, Bone Estrada, to "dress more appropriately" for their "bodies."

The line about how they dress would have been bad enough on its own -- too many people feel entitled to tell women how to dress.

Adding "for their bodies" adds a layer of body-shaming, which is equally inexcusable.

The implication behind this gross sentiment is that people have to look a certain way in order to wear certain clothing.

Clearly, the dweeb who wrote this (now deleted) tweet felt that Kail doesn't have the "right body type" to wear what she wears.

Kail saw it, quoted the tweet, and replied.

"We didn't ask you," Kailyn tweeted.

She's right -- neither she nor Bone asked. But that didn't stop this rando from projectile vomiting their terrible opinion onto social media.

"We," Kailyn affirmed. "Will wear what we want."

Good for them!

Unfortunately, our society has an embarrassment of body-shaming.

As a plus size woman who is also a public figure, Kailyn bears the brunt of a lot of this.

For a variety of cultural reasons, a lot of people feel that they have a right or even a duty to tell women how to dress or how to appear.

The sheer audacity of someone on a street telling another woman what to do with her face -- usually to smile -- is just the tip of the iceberg.

On social media, these people rely upon relative anonymity and upon being part of a chorus of voices and say things that are even worse.

Sometimes, these unwelcome statements and pieces of unsolicited advice are poorly disguised as sagely wisdom, for the receiver's benefit.

This is called concern-trolling, and it is never cute.

The person whose now-deleted tweet told Kail and her friend to dress differently for their bodies wasn't yelling abuse at them, and may have thought that they were doing the women a favor.

But women do not exist simply to be pleasant for someone to look at.

And, for the record, Kailyn looks just fine in whatever she wears -- but that's beside the point. Even if Kail looked like a gorgon, she could still wear whatever she likes.

Kailyn Lowry Topless

We're not saying that we always agree with Kailyn Lowry.

Her decision to reunite with Chris Lopez made a number of Teen Mom 2 fans uneasy, even though it was for Lux's first birthday party.

Like so many people (like too many people, really), Kail has been unlucky in love -- many times. Every time, really.

Despite that, she manages to be a total champ at coparenting, even though her relationships with a couple of exes are deeply complicated.

Good for Kail for standing up for herself and countless other women when she could have just ignored the trolling.

Kailyn Lowry & Chelsea Houska SLAM Teen Mom 2 Producers: You Were Supposed to Keep Us Safe!

If you watched last night's Teen Mom 2 reunion special -- which was rather lamely subtitled "Behind the Screams" -- then you know there was no shortage of raised voices.

But as is so often the case with heavily-edited reality TV, we needed a bit of post-show insight from the stars themselves in order to clarify exactly what was behind all that shouting.

Kailyn Lowry-Chelsea Houska

As you probably already know, Briana DeJesus and Kailyn Lowry nearly came to blows on two separate occasions but were held back by security both times.

Everyone on hand was appalled for the obvious reasons, but there was also a secondary cause for the confusion and anger that seemed to ripple through the room.

It seems Kailyn Lowry was outraged that the show's producers put her in harm's way.

And she wasn't alone.

Chelsea Houska is currently pregnant with her second child, and she was reportedly so appalled by the unsafe conditions on set that she considered quitting the show.

The castmates both made their frustrations clear in tweets that were posted immediately after the show aired Monday night:

“The producers encouraged me to text briana to meet up prior to that scene with Chelsea," Lowry wrote.

"Came outta left field with the higher ups are asking if you would be willing to talk to her + added their own suggestions."

She added:

“They really make it look like it was my idea to ask her to talk.

“I also texted 3 producers on set and said don’t put them behind me on the couch."

Of course, Briana was seated near her on the stage, and that's when the second round of violence broke out.

Chelsea echoed Briana's sentiments, revealing that she was so disgusted with what took place that day that she didn't even watch the reunion:

“I already watched tonight’s episode earlier and it made me feel so sick to my stomach that I was even around any type of physical altercation while pregnant," Houska tweeted.

"Unfortunately, I put too much trust into people that I thought were looking out for my best interest and safety,” she added.

Houska, C.

“Looking back…I wish I would’ve listened to my gut feeling and not have gone to filming that day at all.”

Chelsea's father, Randy Houska, was even harsher in his assessment of the day's events.

“The fact that @mtv higher ups said they would not let happen exactly what did happen … was ridiculous,” he wrote. 

"I firmly believe it was all set up with Brianna ahead of time to flip out like that.”

Randy went on to say that the network should've taken disciplinary action against Briana and her sister, Brittany:

“Exactly what @ChelseaHouska predicted would happen and @mtv promised would not happened. There should have been severe consequences,” he tweeted.

But it seems Briana doesn't entirely share her castmates' views on who's to blame for last night's debacle:

“This whole situation would of never happened if ppl minded their business on who I was f—king. Also I wasn’t scared, I popped off in front of cameras cause I was tired of things being done secretly and ppl playing the victim,” she wrote in a series of deleted tweets.

“I saw plenty of msgs in Javi’s phone of a certain someone talking about me and my family. U can’t point fingers if ur hands are just as dirty.

Ironically, these days, it's Briana who's doing the finger-pointing by implying that Kailyn is entirely to blame for the melee, and she and MTV are not at fault.

Meanwhile, Kailyn has already refused to continue her working relationship with one producer, and further shakeups may be on the way.

Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus Throw DOWN in Epic Teen Mom 2 Fight!

So Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus have hated each other for a good while now ... we're actually coming up on the one year anniversary!

They haven't been secretive or passive aggressive about their hatred, either, and you definitely know that if you've watched literally any episode from this season of Teen Mom 2.

But this week, MTV aired a special "behind the scenes" episode of some things that happened during the taping of the reunion back in May.

And it was INTENSE.

1. All This Over Javi?

All this over javi
Kailyn and Briana were never really close or anything, but they quickly became enemies last fall when Briana started getting flirty with Kailyn's ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.

2. Seriously, Over Javi?

Kail and javi wedding
Kail and Javi had been over for a while at that point, but still, Kailyn thought it was inappropriate for Briana, her co-worker, to be getting with her ex, and that's kind of fair, right?

3. Weird

But in the beginning, Kail was upset because Javi took their son, and also her older son, on a "boy's trip" to Disney World but conveniently left out the fact that Briana and her kids also came along on the vacation. And that's also fair.

4. Too Much

But after that, Kailyn and Briana officially decided they hated each other, and got into it on social media, through text messages, via Javi ... it was just a lot.

5. Way, WAY Too Much

Briana confronts kail
At the taping of the last Teen Mom 2 reunion, the one from last September that we saw footage from this season, they got into a bit of a spat. Kail called Briana ratchet, Briana told her that she was just salty because she was hanging out with Javi.

6. Just Wait

At the time, it was very dramatic and exciting. But we had not seen anything yet.
