John and Joey battle their own personal obstacles so they may see their children once more.
joey is a great dad.
this is ******* me off so many people grow up without their dads in their lives and this ***** wants to keep him away from his child for what so she can feel powerful the only person who gets ****** at the end of the day is the child **** these ******* in the show
he's perfectly capable of paying child support...nothing is wrong with him. he shouldnt ask to just come into the childs life without helping out with money.
Egypt looks like a crazy resentful *****. And her mother is no picnic either. Both are very rude, and its so LOW to use a baby as leverage over someone. To deny John his rights to his child that he clearly wants to see with just beyond me.
John must have done something to Egypt for all of this rudeness to happen to him. The mother was rude, so were the friends and boyfriend- something must have happened...unless Egypt is a crazy B*tch..
that chick egypt is pathetic how u gonna deny your baby's dad to see his child and he wants to. If he didnt want anything to do with the child she'd be all up in his behind, he wouldnt be able 2 get rid of her. I think john would be a good dad but joey go sit down cuz who in their right mind would leave a child with you. You may hurt your child because you are a hot head and children need patient parents not quick tempered ones.
from what i've seen, joey is going to be a bad dad. john on the otherhand can be a good dad.
I disagree with that, at least with John it seems like he was always trying to be apart of Noah's life but for whatever reason Noah's Mom wouldn't let him and with Joey it's like he wasn't there at first but he bettered himself so that he COULD be apart of her life, it just took longer because he had more issues.
im guessing lying to your ex that you have lung cancer really isnt the smartest idea...
john seems like a really nice guy. its terrible that his ex is not allowing him to see his child.
i do agree that it was a nice gesture for joey to get his life together, however the mother is simply trying to protect her daughter. And it isn't as if he is just an ex and she is being selfish, he does drugs, therefore he is not always stable and who would want that kind of person around their daughter, father or not! I also think he was out of line in asking to be alone with his daughter. He needed to earn her trust back, because he could just run away with her and that could be the end of that. I think that maybe the mother should stop running and take legal action, and maybe Joey can see his daughter for an hour once a week or something under supervision. But it would take me a long time to trust someone THAT unpredictable and unstable around my young child
i don't get why these guys really think they have a right to see their kids when they haven't bothered before? not fair that the mother is forced to grow up and be responsible but the father's can take their time and get their life's in gear when they feel like it.
I agree about John, it doesn't make him a dead beat dad when the mother refuses to let him see HIS daughter. The mother is in the wrong alot more. Seems like she's acting on emotion and not whats best for their daughter.
john is not a dead beat and i can tell you theres a lot of dead beat moms tht take advantage of welfare just cuz they have kids too young, it does make mothers ne difference then some dads but these dads are trying n makin an effort n when those kids grow older n see this they will blame their mothers knowing their dad was pushed out.
john didnt choose not to be in his daughter life she slowly pushed him away after he broke up with her till the point she wasent letting him c her... every father has a right to c their child!
TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO BASHED ON JOHN:
Although I am aware that some people are only human and do make mistakes, I still do not like Joey simply because his attitude gets the best of him according to what I've seen. Understandably, Sarah is concerned to leave the baby alone with him. Who could blame her? Evidentally he was/still is a major "hot head" and I personally would never take the chance of letting something happen to my child, especially if I am aware of how angry my ex could get in a rage.
BUT as far as John goes, how dare ANY OF YOU say he is a dead beat dad? I bet the girls who called him that, are the types of "girls" who would find themselves in this kind of perdiciment (meaning they would intentionally keep the child from it's father for NO reason,just to be a *****). What is the poor boy suppose to do when that "so-called" mother keeps him from seeing the baby? As sweet as he is, you know he would never get forceful or violent with a fly, let alone a human being (the mother of his child). So, with that being said... I can't believe you guys would even dare call him a "dead beat dad." Those are very hurtful words and for someone who obviously cares as much as he does, unthinkable things could happen to his self-esteem all because you are completely ignorant and have no idea what you're talking about..
Sorry to be so foward, but I cannot stand when people use words such as "dead beat dad" so loosely. I believe it's because they have NO idea what it's like to be in some of these father's shoes. The whole reason this show is called "True Life" is because MTV is trying to show us from first hand experience what it's like deal with these issues and to show us every angle possible on these different situations. So next time you wanna go so far as to saying something so degrading & hurtful, why don't you put yourself in that person's shoes and then see how you would feel if the tables were turned. You should be ashamed!!!!!
john is a very nice person and i can NOT understand the hostility coming from egypt's family. it's sickening. And joey doesnt seem stable yet
Wow that's awful if thats tru and everything. I can tell just from watching like part of the episode so far that he's a real douchebag. I understand that it's a good thing that he wants to have a relationship again with her, but I can't stand people demonizing women for trying to protect their children. in many cases they are correct to do it---some people (both dads and moms) are just not fit to be around kids. Simple as that. its best that she has been cautious.
John is so sweet. It makes me angry that Egypt and her family doesn't care if he is in that child's life or not. Joey is a real dummy, and unfortunately MTV would censor what I'd really like to say about him. The first thing you do when you meet the mother of your child again is to apologize for lying like that, NOT attack her everything you think she did wrong in front of your child. That kid is a real mess and isn't ready to be a real dad. He thinks if he has his daughter in his life he will get his act together and stay clean, but that is reckless and dangerous. He's angry and his ex-gf is right to go with her instincts and be cautious and suspicious of him. It is wise to take it slowly. And Joey, pull your pants up, really it is time to grow up.
drugs kills their emotions. he is numb.
