Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer are going through some major transitions in their lives, including welcoming their third child and moving to a new home. They have a lot on their plates right now, and the last thing they need is injuries or property damage complicating their lives even further.
Sadly for the DeBoers, that might be exactly what they got.
Since Teen Mom has been on the air for over a decade, we’ve seen our fair share of danger, injury, and recklessness from the stars as they grow and mature. In fact, driving is a constant source of controversy from the stars, since many of them can’t seem to put their phones away while they’re driving their children around.
Now it looks like Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer are joining the ranks for Teen Mom stars who are guilty of distracted driving… and the resulting car accident is proof that they should probably keep their eyes on the road.
Chelsea uploaded a few videos to her story, sharing some sweet behind-the-scenes moments with her husband. In this shot, she and Cole are hanging out in their car, and Aubree can be heard in the background.
“So Cole just backed up into our garage door,” Chelsea spills in the video. She turns the camera to face Cole, who signs off with a laughing “Sup.”
Unlike when other Teen Mom stars get into fender benders, this only seemed to make some of the fans like the two even more.
“I do appreciate him not being a psycho about it,” wrote reddit user eighteen22. “Some people lose their minds when things go wrong, or break, on account of an accident.” User 21ladybug agreed, “I like their attitudes about that. Good for them,” although user turdbowl69 pointed out, “When money isn’t a problem I’m sure it’s easy to laugh about things like this.”
Not everyone was quite so amused though. A heavily-downvoted comment by user PlasticPaulBunyan reads, “Hey colebot maybe watch the road while you’re driving your gigantic vehicle.”
As far as shocking Teen Mom driving behavior, this is far from as scandalous as it gets. The reigning king in this category would most likely be Maci Bookout’s first baby daddy Ryan Edwards, who was busted driving while high on opiates when it was filmed and aired by MTV. As if that weren’t bad enough, he was driving himself and his now-wife Mackenzie Edwards to their own wedding!
It isn’t difficult to imagine that Mackenzie must have been furious at suspecting her fiancé was on drugs right before their wedding. She allegedly tried to straighten out the wheel while they were driving when it became clear he was intoxicated. She asked, “Why are you swerving?” To which he replied, “My eyes, babe, in the sunlight I can’t keep ’em open.”
When Mackenzie asked if he’d taken Xanax again, Ryan swore up and down he hadn’t, saying, “I put that on my kid’s life.”
Unfortunately, given that Ryan went to rehab for his addiction soon after this event, it’s hard for any fan to believe that he was telling the truth on his big day.
