For once, it’s clear that Adam is, in some respects, ready to commit to Chelsea. But are his current attempts enough? On one hand, he was open about his feelings for her during tonight’s “Teen Mom 2” premiere. On the other, the lunch date they shared was ruled by Murphy’s law, as little Aubree was throwing tantrums left and right, and poor Chelsea couldn’t calm her down. Instead of helping discipline the teary tot, Adam giggled at the situation, more like an amused onlooker than a father.
Chelsea reveals to Maci Bookout and her fellow cast members in the “Teen Mom 2 After Show” clip below that even though she was initially keen on the idea that Adam wanted to get back together, because of the many times he’s gone back on his word and acted immaturely there was a part of her that felt trepidation. “I was kind of excited, because I was like, ’Omigosh, it’s going to be, like, us again!'” she says about Adam’s attempt to rekindle their romance. “But then in the back of my mind I always have that thing telling me that it’s wrong; that it’s not going to work.”
The girls all nod, in complete understanding of Chelsea’s position, but Leah, Kailyn and Maci have, for the most part, given up on the one-big-happy-family dream. Kailyn sums it up best when she speaks directly to Chelsea: “It’s kind of hard to watch you go through this, knowing you as a friend. We’ve already been through it and you are still going through it. We just want to be like, ’Chelsea, this is where you need to be, get out of this–disconnect yourself.” To some degree, she has, admitting that Adam still has a long trek ahead to Dad of the Year. “I think from when [Aubree] was born he definitely has [stepped up]–he has a job, pays child support and everything. So in that sense he has, but still not as much help as I would like him to be.”
