Divorce and New Beginnings Highlight Fiery Season-Eight of MTV’s ‘Teen Mom 2’

by Devon Thomas  |  11.30.2016

Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, and Jenelle Evans are back to share their new journeys in an emotional eighth season of the MTV reality series Teen Mom 2.

In the one-minute clip, 24-year-old Kailyn Lowry is in the midst of divorcing her husband Javi Marroquin. In one particularly fiery moment, Kailyn sharply tells Javi why she is calling it off.

“We’re getting divorced, period, point blank!” Kailyn exclaims. “It’s not like we were this happy couple.”

Afterwards, Javi comes clean with Kailyn and suggests that she cheated on him.

Jenelle Evans is facing difficulties as well. She is amidst a legal battle with her mother over custody of her son Jace. In the clip, Jenelle—also from the series 16 & Pregnant—tells her mom that she will no longer film with her, given her mother’s refusal to hand back custody.

Meanwhile, Leah Messer continues to fight for the health of her daughter Ali, who suffers from a debilitating form of muscular dystrophy, and also considers dating again.

Chelsea Houska is expecting a baby boy and is excited about expanding her family with husband Cole DeBoer.

Teen Mom 2 returns to MTV Monday, January 2, at 9 p.m. ET.
