The last season of Teen Mom 2 was a rough one for Javi Marroquin, to say the least.
He was deployed to Qatar for six months, and he definitely felt a lot of emotions about it.
He cried about it more than once, and about how much he would miss his son with Kailyn, Lincoln, and Kailyn’s older son with Jo Rivera, Isaac.
(Feel free to take a moment to shake your head and say “Poor Javi …”, because it’s definitely appropriate here.)
But if all that drama was packed into the last season of Teen Mom 2, imagine how much will be in the upcoming season!
That’s what Javi discussed in this new interview with OK! magazine.
“This season is a rough one,” he said. “It’s definitely one that’s … me and Kail have a lot going on, obviously, everyone knows that, so this season really shows that and shows my life overseas and her taking care of the home life and then me coming home and adjusting to that.”
“There is a lot to see. It will be a good one.”
It’s worth noting that the last season ended with Javi and Kailyn fighting constantly in FaceTime conversations, and while they definitely hinted at divorce, they didn’t really definitively decide on it.
Javi also had a good while left in his deployment, so the next season would show that, along, presumably, with the actual decision to end the marriage.
So yeah, we imagine it will be a good one.
About the odd circumstances of the divorce, Javi explained that “We FaceTimed regularly, and that’s when everything kind of started unraveling.”
For filming purposes, he said “It was kind of hard to tell my side of the story over a phone, but they tried their best and I told my side as best as I can.”
Javi also touched on the habit of Teen Mom stars blaming the show for their bad behavior — you know, the classic “they edited the footage to make me look bad!” defense.
“I wouldn’t say I’ve been edited unfairly,” he said. “This new season we will see how they edit it and how they portray both sides. That is why I want to make sure my side gets out the right way and people see where I am coming from.”
Interestingly enough, he also added “I know when, I think it was last season when some guy texted her in the morning and I got mad about it, and everyone was like ‘oh, Javi’s so controlling’ and this and that … um, it all makes sense now, so it’ll play out in this season.”
Is Javi implying that Kailyn was cheating on him, and that that will be revealed in the new season?
We were already planning on watching, but you know we can’t miss a minute now.
And finally, Javi was asked if he was planning on leaving the show, now that he’s not married to his Teen Mom.
“No, I mean at the end of the day, I used to tell Kail this is a blessing. I said regardless how stressful, it’s opened a lot of doors and you should be thankful, and when you are having a rough day, don’t take it out on them. They are here to do a job just like you are.”
“I think of it more as a blessing,” he concluded. “Just roll with the punches, you know.”
Thank goodness one of these people has a little bit of sense.
