MTV’s fab four are now the fab five, and Teen Mom 2 Season 9 Episode 1 wasted no time in bringing Briana DeJesus into the fold.
The 16 & Pregnant alum is back alongside Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, Leah Messer and Kailyn Lowry – with a vengeance.
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, though, you know that no one can touch the Carolina Hurricane herself when it comes to drama.
The Season 9 premiere was certainly no exception.
Jenelle Evans and David Eason kicked off the summer run of episodes by getting into an epic fight after … mold was found in their home.
Yes, the couple nearly broke up over this incident.
You see, Jenelle’s new house (that they’re building on their own land) isn’t move-in ready yet, so they got a rental for the time being.
That’s when we saw Jenelle fight with David Eason like never before, which was even more troubling as she was still pregnant at the time.
Trouble in paradise … or the Jenelle equivalent.
They got into a massive, nuclear blowout fight about mold in the house, Jenelle yelled “dude” a lot, and she locked herself in the bathroom.
Later, after crying into her microphone, she said to one of the MTV producers that David reminded her of her ex. It’s not clear which.
She told David (now the father of her daughter Ensley) this, and in response, he told her to go back to her ex if that’s how she feels.
More tears ensued. We’re guessing not the last.
Javi Marroquin was also crying this week, but not because of his divorce or Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez having a baby together.
No, the U.S. Air Force member is scheduled to be deployed again in a few months, to the dismay of stepson Isaac and Javi.
Meanwhile, Kailyn did reference Chris Lopez, albeit not by name, in mentioning that she has started dating someone new lately.
Amazing to think back on this knowing what we do now, that this relationship ends in a pregnancy and then Lopez peacing out.
Way out in South Dakota, the oft-overlooked Chelsea Houska’s diaper keg party was a fine substitute a traditional baby shower.
The Teen Mom 2 cast member who flies so far under the radar MTV forgets she’s there then gave birth to baby Watson! OMG!
In West Virginia, Leah Messer started taking college classes, and we learned about Jeremy Calvert’s breakup with Brooke Wehr.
Finally, we have Briana. Oh, Briana.
DeJesus’ Teen Mom 2 debut during the season premiere oddly involved her appearance at the Teen Mom after-show taping.
Obviously, these stars all know each other in real life, but it still felt extremely meta to see her with Javi Marroquin on screen.
Fans were re-introduced to Briana and learned that she is pregnant again; Luis, her baby daddy, is still in the picture. Or was.
Later in this same episode, Briana broke down having learned that he may be cheating on her, so he could be out the door.
The former Teen Mom 3 star has one daughter by ex Devoin Austin, and we foresee no shortage of drama with Luis either.
She should fit in well.
