Janelle Evans dropped her petition for custody in a North Carolina courtroom yesterday, and as soon as court was over, Janelle was giving an interview to E! trash talking Barbara. Because, Jenelle.
Janelle agreed to a mediation plan with a formal co-parenting agreement that outlines Jenelle’s visitation days. The plan is pretty much the standard visitation schedule that fathers have except that it seems Jenelle may get Jace every weekend. There is also a plan for where Jace will spend holidays and significant time in the summer where Jenelle will have custody. This is all what Jenelle is reporting. There are several things about this story that make it seem like more of a story about Jenelle”winning” and Barbara “losing” rather than a factual account of events.
Janelle plans to wait a year or so and then petition for custody again. She wants to have a year of visitation with no problems to offer the judge on the next try. And yet, she doesn’t seem to think that trashing Barbara in the media conflicts with her peaceful visitation plans.
Some Janelle quotes from the E! Story
“I’m not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son anymore,and at the moment that’s all I care about. I just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day but today wasn’t the day, sadly.”
Yes, it is always better when a judge decides when you can see your son. It’s so much better than just being kind to your mother and not hooking up with losers who encourage you to disrespect your mother.
“I’m happy but devastated at the same time that I didn’t take it to trial. But in the world of Jenelle, you learn to pick and choose your battles.”
It’s Janelle’s world and we are just living in it.
Jenelle claims the judge told Barbara, “Barbara, you need to start thinking about the child and not yourself in the future.”
Things like this are why this whole version of events is suspect with me. I remember after each time Sheree lost in court she would claim that she won. During the hearings she would make the most outrageous lies on the witness stand. Janelle reminds me of her. Some people just rewrite the script of their lives to suit their fancy.
I hope that this doesn’t make things any harder for Barbara. Jenelle has not had any contact with Barbara for over a month. Jenelle says that the agreement starts this weekend so that she will have all four kids at her house for Memorial Day. David’s daughter, Jace, The doughnut (my favorite) and the new baby girl Ensley. Be careful what you wish for!
