Mackenzie Douthit of ‘Teen Mom 3′ recently opened up about the day she was diagnosed diabetic in her new fitness blog. Mackenzie explains that as a child she had trouble learning because of her unknown illness and it wasn’t until her teen years that she found out about it.
“I probably made the worst grades out of any grade-schooler around me. My brain just did not function how it was supposed to (due to being an undiagnosed Diabetic) and I hated the fact that all my teachers begged my mom to put me on all this medicine saying I needed it because I was slow. They literally had me convinced I was mentally-challenged even though my Mom knew it had to be something else.“
The day that Mackenzie was finally diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes was on her sister’s birthday after drinking 6 glasses of soda during dinner her mother curiously decided to check her sugar levels. Mackenzie’s father is diabetic also so they were able to easily check. When the test revealed Mac’s sugar level was high her mother feared the worst.
“She was pale and I could tell she wanted to cry. She grabbed my hand and took me to the hospital only to find out my blood sugar was 698 and I would have to live the rest of my life taking shots to stay alive. OK….WORST DAY OF MY LIFE, AND WORST BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO MY POOR SISTER. “
Mackenzie now has her diabetes under control and has started a fitness blog to talk about eating and exercising so she can perhaps help others lead a healthy lifestyle.
Sad news for ‘Teen Mom 2′ fans, Leah Calvert has decided to no longer take part in the show, most likely due to the broken state of her marriage to second husband Jeremy Calvert.
Leah confirmed via Twitter that she will not go on to a season 6 of the show. An insider tells The Ashley’s Reality Roundup that Leah is scarred of airing another divorce on television because of the terrible backlash she has gotten from the first one. Sources also say that the show will go on with just the three remaining girls, Chelsea, Jenelle and Kailyn.

No premiere date has been set for ‘Teen Mom 2′ Season 6 but my guess is that it will air next year after the new season of the original ‘Teen Mom’ show.
UPDATE: It’s now being reported that Leah’s real reason for leaving the show is because she’s in real danger of loosing custody of her twin daughters Ali and Aleeah. The footage from the show is making Leah look bad according to an insider and Leah is “ready to leave her reality TV life behind.”
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have announced they are releasing their book “Conquering Chaos” on March 15th 2015!
Here is the book’s description from Post Hill Press, found on Amazon.com (where you can pre-order it by the way!): “Since Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra shared their story of teen pregnancy and adoption on the MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, they’ve been known for their inspiring commitment to growing up right. Between their experience placing their first daughter for adoption, and their struggle to cope with problems in their families, Catelynn and Tyler were challenged in every imaginable way. But against all odds, the childhood sweethearts rose above the dysfunction to become responsible adults whose story has inspired many others.
How did two troublemaking kids from the trailer park make it through the storm of family dysfunction, teen pregnancy, and adoption without letting go of each other? What gave them the strength to conquer the chaos of their lives and go on to become people their children could be proud of? And what really happened when the cameras weren’t there?
Now, in their debut book, Catelynn and Tyler tell the story in their own words…and they leave nothing out. From the wild behavior that went down before MTV to their experiences learning and teaching about adoption, Catelynn and Tyler lay it all out on the table. Open, honest, raw, and real, Conquering Chaos is an incredible look at two young people who beat the odds and used their victories to give hope to others“

Jenelle Evans of ‘Teen Mom 2′ was recently called out by former ‘Teen Mom 3′ star Briana Dejesus for a negative article about Briana and her boyfriend which was posted to Jenelle Evans’ ‘Teen Mom’ gossip site, Teen Mom Truth. (Whether or not the site actually ever contains “truth” is debatable.)
The post was about Briana’s boyfriend posting some distastful photos to his Twitter account. Which isn’t surprising considering some of the things I’ve seen Briana post in the past. When Briana saw the article she lashed out at Jenelle stating, “B—h U don’t even have custody of UR 1st kid! U have horrible judgment urself so keep UR comments to urself,” Briana tweeted-and-deleted according to Wetpaint.com and then added, “I hate this crack head girl always tryna make money off of me.”
Jenelle Evans admits that she is not even the one writing the articles for the website and had no idea any of this was even going on. “I made fun of some TM3 chick? Uhm.. When? What’s her name again?” Jenelle then added, “I didn’t write that. I have two people that run my accounts online besides myself.“
Do you think that Jenelle should take responsibility for what is posted to her ‘Teen Mom’ website if she is profiting from it financially?
