Pretty Little Mamas Season 1 Episode 1 Recap: Let’s Pretend

MTV’s Pretty Little Mamas debuted Thursday night, and it was filled with everything you would expect from a show that wants to be Pretty Little Liars meets Teen Mom. 

Nicole is the lead of the clique. She’s 24-years old, unlucky in love and a mother of one daughter. She has a new boyfriend Michael, but in true reality TV show fashion, their relationship is not all that. 

Nikki is 24-years-old, new to San Diego, and that means she’s new to Nicole’s group of friends. Nikki is a model who seems to be using the show to raise her profile. 

While that’s not a bad thing, she seems poised to be the person to cause the most drama. She’s still in a relationship with the father of her child, so there’s that. 

Then there’s Alyssa. She’s 25-years-old, and training to be a nurse. Her backstory seemed full of roses until we learned that her mother was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. 

Cheyenne is a 24-year-old mother of two. She’s married, has aspirations of moving out of her father’s home. Will Pretty Little Mamas be a hit and allow her to do so?

Chandlar was friends with the ladies back in high school, but Nicole told her that her boyfriend, Aaron sucked, and she needed to get rid of him. 

For Chandlar, this was a stab in the back, but it seems she’s warmed to the idea of ousting Aaron, the father of her daughter because he has a drug problem. 

Heavily pregnant, Chandlar visited the memorial of the group’s friend, Bree, who was murdered six years before. It was a surprising piece of information. 

The scene with the ladies meeting up at the memorial looked a little too staged to take seriously. It served as a mere way to have them all together in one scene. 

They all seemed to reconnect because they were reminiscing about the past, and while Chandlar knew she messed up by choosing Aaron over her friends. 

Nicole struggled to see why the ladies would welcome Chandlar back into their lives after everything, but we never got to see much more than that. 

The next big event was Nicole’s summer party, and she flipped the eff out because Nikki brought her friends with her. 

This was a big no-no for Nicole, who rounded up the girls to start hurling insults at both Nikki and the girls. 

What’s more one of the girls said that she was sure she matched with Nicole’s boyfriend on a dating app. 

Nikki was happy to take this news to Nicole who decided it was time for Nikki and her horrible friends to make their exit. 

The sad thing is that some of these women seem nice, but when they’re this catty, it makes them look like they’re playing it all up for the cameras. 

What are your thoughts on it the series premiere?

Pretty Little Mamas continues Thursdays on MTV at 9/8c.


Javi Marroquin to Briana DeJesus: You Betrayed Me … But Let’s Get Back Together!

If you watched last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, you may have come away from it feeling that the relationship between Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus was even more unstable and unhealthy than you'd previously thought.

You weren't alone on that.

As far as we can, tell it was nothing but drama with these two from the very start, and last night's absurdity basically confirmed that they only dated because of their shared desire to seek revenge on Kailyn Lowry.

For some reason, Briana's plastic surgery was the issue that put this relationship to the test, and it was flat-out bizarre to see the whole thing unravel on camera.

Here's a rundown of how it all played out:

1. Better Days

We suppose there might have been a time when Javi and Briana were actually happy together. We just didn’t see any of it.

2. Surgical Summer

The issue that drove Javi and Briana apart was her trip to Miami to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure.

3. Make Up Your Mind!

At first, Javi was mad that Briana wanted to get more surgery. Then he was mad that he wouldn’t be the one to help nurse her back to health after the procedure.

4. Forgot About Dre

Javi pretty much lost his mind upon learning that Bri planned to have her ex-boyfriend Dre take care of her after her surgery.

5. Playing the Game

To be fair, Briana seemed to choose Dre for the job primarily because she knew it would piss Javi off, but his reaction was still hilariously over-blown.

6. A Surprise Visit

Javi showed up unexpectedly just prior to Briana’s surgery and spoke of her decision to summon Dre in hilariously overblown terms.

Mike Sorrentino to Lauren Pesce: Let’s Hurry and Get Married Before I Go to Jail!

Well, he’s living up to his nickname more than ever these days, because Mike Sorrentino is stuck in a seriously complex situation.

If you watched Jersey Shore Family Vacation this season, you know that Mike proposed to Lauren Pesce, she said yes, and plans are already in place to populate the tri-state area with dozens of mini-Sitches.

Unfortunately, there’s a minor roadblock standing in the way of Mike and Lauren’s domestic bliss.

When the focus briefly shifted from Ronnie’s never-ending emotional meltdown, JSFV also reminded us that Sorrentino is facing prison time for tax evasion.

While Mike has gone to great lengths to clean up his act in the years since his legal entanglement began, it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to avoid prison time.

Which means, of course, that he and Lauren don’t have the luxury of a long engagement.

“They are working out the exact date now, as well as the location for the wedding and venue for the reception,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.

Mike is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, and his lawyers have reportedly informed him that he should be prepared to serve at least two years behind bars.

Fortunately, Lauren says she’s willing to wait for Mike for as long as she needs to.

“They are both hoping for leniency. But it does not matter to Lauren how long he has to go to prison,” the insider says.

“She will stand by him no matter what. She will be visiting him in prison as often as she is allowed.

Even though Mike might not begin serving his sentence until several months after he’s sentenced, he and Lauren are planning to tie the knot this summer, just to be safe.

The original plan was for Sorrentino and Pesce to tie the knot on the second season of JSFW, but a rushed production. schedule put the kibosh on that plan.

But don’t worry, unlike past Shore weddings, the entire guido crew will be in attendance, and most of Mike’s castmates will be a part of the wedding party.

(We’re guessing Ronnie was the only one left out.)

Insiders say Mike and Lauren hope to spend at least four months living as man and wife before his sentence begins.

And of course, they’ll be hard at work making those little mini-Situations.

As difficult as Mike’s current situation is, those who know him best say he’s never been happier — and they credit Lauren with saving his life.

“Everyone is just so proud of Mike for getting sober Opens a New Window. , and are just as close with Lauren as they are with him,” says thee source.
