Pretty Little Mamas Season 1 Episode 1 Recap: Let’s Pretend

MTV's Pretty Little Mamas debuted Thursday night, and it was filled with everything you would expect from a show that wants to be Pretty Little Liars meets Teen Mom. 

Nicole is the lead of the clique. She's 24-years old, unlucky in love and a mother of one daughter. She has a new boyfriend Michael, but in true reality TV show fashion, their relationship is not all that. 

Nikki is 24-years-old, new to San Diego, and that means she's new to Nicole's group of friends. Nikki is a model who seems to be using the show to raise her profile. 

While that's not a bad thing, she seems poised to be the person to cause the most drama. She's still in a relationship with the father of her child, so there's that. 

Then there's Alyssa. She's 25-years-old, and training to be a nurse. Her backstory seemed full of roses until we learned that her mother was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. 

Cheyenne is a 24-year-old mother of two. She's married, has aspirations of moving out of her father's home. Will Pretty Little Mamas be a hit and allow her to do so?

Chandlar was friends with the ladies back in high school, but Nicole told her that her boyfriend, Aaron sucked, and she needed to get rid of him. 

For Chandlar, this was a stab in the back, but it seems she's warmed to the idea of ousting Aaron, the father of her daughter because he has a drug problem. 

Heavily pregnant, Chandlar visited the memorial of the group's friend, Bree, who was murdered six years before. It was a surprising piece of information. 

The scene with the ladies meeting up at the memorial looked a little too staged to take seriously. It served as a mere way to have them all together in one scene.

They all seemed to reconnect because they were reminiscing about the past, and while Chandlar knew she messed up by choosing Aaron over her friends. 

Nicole struggled to see why the ladies would welcome Chandlar back into their lives after everything, but we never got to see much more than that. 

The next big event was Nicole's summer party, and she flipped the eff out because Nikki brought her friends with her. 

This was a big no-no for Nicole, who rounded up the girls to start hurling insults at both Nikki and the girls.

What's more one of the girls said that she was sure she matched with Nicole's boyfriend on a dating app. 

Nikki was happy to take this news to Nicole who decided it was time for Nikki and her horrible friends to make their exit. 

The sad thing is that some of these women seem nice, but when they're this catty, it makes them look like they're playing it all up for the cameras.
