Briana DeJesus: My OTHER Daughter Also Needs Surgery

Think whatever you want about Briana DeJesus as a Teen Mom 2 cast member.

Take the side of Javi Marroquin or Kailyn Lowry and think she is nothing but trouble, if you desire.

As a parent, however, Briana DeJesus has had it very rough of late. This cannot really be debated.

Below, we document how the MTV personality had to recently watch one daughter undergo surgery… and how she'll soon need to watch the other one go under the knife as well.

We wish her and her kids the best…

1. Poor Stella

In mid-August, DeJesus shared this photo with followers and said little Stella had just undergone a procedure.

2. Did She Come Out of It Okay?

Yes, although any sort of surgery is scary for an infant of course. “Stressful stressful day but Stella is resting and that’s all that matters,” wrote Briana as an update.

3. What Was the Matter?

“She [had] septic arthritis,” DeJesus told Radar Online of Stella’s joint infection. “It’s common in kids.” (According to Wikipedia, septic arthritis is the invasion of a joint by an infectious agent resulting in joint inflammation.)

4. How is Stella Doing Now?

Pretty well, it seems. No complications. No follow-ups needed in the last few weeks.

5. But What About Nova?

The almost-seven-year old was born to Briana in 2011. Her father is Devoin Austin, who is occasionally in the picture — and DeJesus has now revealed that Nova needs surgery of her own.

6. This is What Briana Tweeted on the Subject

“Nova has surgery on Friday and her bday is on Sunday and I just feel sooo bad.” Darn. We feel bad, too.

Paola Mayfield FINALLY Answers Those Plastic Surgery Questions!

90 Day Fiance fans are still rejoicing at the news that Paola Mayfield and Russ Mayfield are expecting their first child. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t still have questions on other topics.

Paola is a fitness model, and a lot of people want to know about what work she’s had done on her face and body.

Now, Pao is addressing those plastic surgery questions that fans have been asking — and she’s answering all of them.

Paola shared a new glimpse at her ever-growing baby bump and answered some questions in the captions.

“Hi loves,” Pao’s post begins. “Some people have asked me if I have done something to my face.”

That’s a rude question, right?

Paola says that they keep asking “since I look so different since I got to the USA.”

“And,” Paola replies honestly. “The answer is yes and no.”

Like so many answers, hers is a little complicated.

Paola then begins her list of areas where she has and has not had work done.

“Lips?” she writes. “I fixed only one side of my upper lip that was uneven.”

Hey, all of our meatsuits are purely luck-of-the-draw. There’s no shame in getting yours touched up.

Paola then explains: “My lips look big or small depending on how hydrated I am!”

“So,” she continues. “I need to drink a lot of water for them to look juicy.”

That’s a free beauty tip right there.

“Botox?” Paola continues. “Nope, and I’m really scared of getting into that world.”

Botox of course uses a potentially deadly toxic to change a person’s looks. Many people worry about the long-term effects that it could have, particularly upon the liver.

“If I want it to look younger or to change the shape of my face I will do it,” Paola promises. “But for now I’m good with this face.”

(She should be!)

“I think I have accomplished so much with this face,” Pao writes. “That I’m keeping it!”

“I’m not against it,” she says, referring to changing one’s face. “And probably one day I will try it and I will definitely make a Vlog about it!”

Now Paola gets to the good stuff.

“My Boobs?” Pao says. “I did my boobs way before I came to the USA.”

She then goes on to share that she’s kind of regretting that now.

“And,” she continues. “I regret it as I have big boobs before and now that I’m pregnant my genetics are popping out more.”

“My Butt?” Paola writes. “That is one 100% hard work, dedication, and genetics!”

Good for her for reminding her fans that a huge part of anyone’s looks, including body shape, is always going to be genetics.

In addition to clarifying where she has and has not received a little medical assistance in her looks, she also addresses what technological resources she has or has not used to make her photos even better.

“Face-tune or photoshop?” she writes. “Nope.”

Paola credits any changes to her face to “the magic of makeup and contouring.”

She is absolutely right — it does seem like magic. And to people who don’t understand how makeup and contouring work, it can seem like the person’s face is totally transformed. It really is an art form.

Paola wishes her fans and followers well, signing off by writing: “Have a wonderful and beautiful day!”


Briana DeJesus Opens Up About Daughter’s Recent Surgery

For the past few weeks, we’ve been writing a lot about Briana DeJesus and the fight she got into with Kailyn Lowry at the recent Teen Mom 2 reunion.

But this article is about something very different.

It’s about the fight Briana’s daughter appears to be in for her life.

The MTV personality opened up a little bit on Thursday about her one-year old daughter, Stella, having to undergo surgery.

“My poor little baby,” DeJesus wrote along with a frowny face, later responding to inquiries from followers and adding:

“Stressful stressful day but Stella is resting and that’s all that matters.”

Briana also shared a few photos (below) of her precious toddler before and after she went under the knife.

“It’s been a hectic day for me but she’s ok. She’s out of surgery,” Briana continued at one point, telling a concerned supporter:

“Will [have] a bigger update to everyone once I have her in my arms!”

Briana did not reveal in these social media messages exactly what problem Stella is facing and/or why she needed surgery at this time.

Back in September, however, DeJesus spoke to Radar Online about at least one health issue her daughter was very unfortunately born with.

“It’s been so hard dealing with Stella,” she said at the time. “She has some heart condition, she has holes in her heart. It’s been difficult dealing with Stella right now.

“We just have to monitor her breathing.”

In this instance, though, it sounds like something else was the matter with young Stella.

“She has septic arthritis,” DeJesus told Radar of Stella’s joint infection. “It’s common in kids.”

According to Wikipedia, septic arthritis is the invasion of a joint by an infectious agent resulting in joint inflammation.

Symptoms often include redness, heat and pain in a single joint associated with a decreased ability to move the joint.

Briana also tells Radar that the infection is now under control, thanks to this new procedure, but it “could always come back.”

Elsewhere, DeJesus told Us Weekly that Stella had a fever of 104 degrees and, even after it stabilized, the infant had trouble “moving her left arm.”

A subsequent MRI revealed that Stella had fluid in her joints.

Briana was accompanied by her mother, Roxanne, at the hospital while waiting for the surgery to end.

(Stella’s father, Luis Hernandez was in New York City for the procedure. The couple split before Stella was born and he is not very involved in her life.)

But while Stella is now a healthy little girl again, “she could have possibly died,” DeJesus tells the tabloid, concluding with a message to all other mothers and fathers around the world:

I would tell parents to pay close attention and if something doesn’t look right, take your babies to get checked. I’m glad I did and that my baby is home, safe and recovering.

The reality TV star is also mom of Nova, 6, who she shares with former boyfriend Devoin Austin.


Jenelle Evans Denies Plastic Surgery … Well Except For Two Huge Things

Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2 fame is subject to many wild rumors and intense speculation, from her romantic relationships to her looks.

Obviously, she’s not the most reliable narrator of her own life story, as her relationship with the truth is about as stable as Sarah Sanders’.

When it comes to plastic surgery she’s undergone, however, the Carolina Hurricane will cop to it … and deny it at the same time.

Two days ago, Jenelle posted the above photo with her daughter, Ensley, wearing matching swimsuits by Evans’ pool with no fence.

Jenelle’s swimsuit, a form-fitting, low-cut one-piece that would make Jessa Duggar swimsuit fans, reads simply “Mama.”

Ensley’s matching swimsuit, naturally, has “Got it From My Mama” emblazoned on it. So sweet and clever, right? Well …

Enter the Instagram peanut gallery:

“Not to be rude,” one commenter writes, knowing damn well they are about to be very rude, “but mama got it from plastic surgery.”

Oooh. Good one, random Jenelle “fan.”

Never one to back down from a fight, whether she’s beating up Brittany or sparring with Tori, Jenelle clapped back with this response:

“Only boobs sweetheart” *kiss emoji*

Well, there you have it, people.

They are not real by any stretch of the imagination, but they are still spectacular … at least according to her husband, David Eason.

Many Evans supporters praised her for keeping it real and keeping the shade to a minimum, but others weren’t as convinced.

Jenelle was trolled on her page over everything from her lip fillers to her alleged photoshopping of her baby bump, er, her stomach.

See above.

In this photo David shared last week, an unretouched Jenelle clearly shows the affect of all those pregnancies on her stomach.

Which is FINE. She looks great. That pose is super awkward, suggestive and may scar us for life, but we’re NOT dissing her weight.

It’s this photo (above) that’s causing controversy, however, when juxtaposed with the previous Cinemax-ready, leg-spreading effort. 

As you can see, and are familiar with if you know Jenelle, this is a sponsored Instagram post for that detox tea she shills for.

Take a closer look and you’ll see why the general consensus is that she Photoshopped the ever-loving crap out of this image.

“Your photoshopped photo doesn’t make you look very good,” one fan commented, echoing the sentiments of many others.

“Omg that photoshopping is horrendous,” said another, piling on criticism. “Even your leggings look screwed up like a skirt.”

“Is there anything you can do right?”

Well, that’s just plain harsh right there.

Just the same, fans offered to lend a hand to her editing skills, picking apart exactly how bad the latest tea-shilling post is.

Specifically, one Evans Instagram aficionado pointed out that “where her tummy is you can see that wood line bending.”

Rough. But not enough to keep her down!

Despite the drama of this spring and summer, “Jenelle will likely begin shooting this week,” according to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.

That’s right, she’ll be returning to Teen Mom 2, despite MTV firing David Eason, Barbara Evans’ claims that he beats her, etc.

It’s been a crazy summer, even for her.

“They are going to film Jenelle with Barbara [Evans] and do a basic catch-up on what’s been happening in Jenelle’s life,” an insider added.

That “basic” catch-up could take weeks.
