First of all, I have not had time to watch the latest episode of Teen Mom 2 yet, so don’t spoil me. I was going to watch it today but life insisted I get off the couch for a few hours and go into THE WORLD today. It was challenging, but ultimately exactly what I need to get back on the right foot.
The last episode I did recap, in a two episode recap, was ironically titled Love You, Mean It. In that episode the frightening lack of parenting by David and Jenelle was highlighted once again. We saw the usual scenes of David and Jenelle arguing in they yard while he worked and she sat around drinking Starbucks. We saw productions show up to film with everyone locked in the house and an irate David threatening to call the police on the crew if they didn’t leave. We saw production return the next day and Jenelle and David lying about not having a fight the day before. We saw Jenelle and Barbara have a knock down drag out argument at the pick up point in front of Jace. We heard Barb ranting to Jenelle about Jace’s anxiety and about how he doesn’t want to be around David because he is afraid of him.
Note, you should be able to click on the photos and see a white arrow to flip through all the photos.
Then we saw Jenelle and David climbing over this fake little fence that had painted Save The Date! on. Jenelle was posing in Daisy Dukes like all brides to be in their engagement photos. Then they orchestrated some kissing scenes while Jenelle barked at a producer to “just keep taking pictures.” Then we saw a half-naked Kaiser, screaming his head off and shouting “Feed Me!” while Jace stood several feet away trying to look invisible. Jenelle said that she was pissed that production used subtitles to make fun of his speech impediment. It didn’t seem to even occur to Jenelle that they did it to show the kids go around hungry.
As you might imagine, pretty much everyone online felt the way that I did. As usual, the Internet trolls descended on her social media pointing out what crappy mother she is. This pissed her off and she blamed production. She seems to think she is just “getting a bad edit.” So she is threatening to quit the show. Even Jenelle isn’t that dumb. She has no marketable job skills. She couldn’t pass a drug test for a nurses aid job which is what her two-year degree is in. She would never be able to work a normal work schedule. David is not going to suddenly want to be the bread-winner. She better hope she is still doing Teen Mom when she is 60.
After posting the Instagram above Jenelle and David took Jace and Kaiser to a Boy Scout Camp for the weekend where Jace got to play with BB guns. It looked like David photobombed him as he was doing some target practice. This reeked of publicity stunt to attempt to change the public opinion of their parenting skills to me.
Finally, the main reason I am rehashing all of this is I wanted y’all to see this TMZ video. David looks really big in this photo. I’ve never really noticed how much bigger he is than Jenelle until this.
Oh and one last thing. Apparently, Kaiser’s grandmother had to drop her custody hearing for Kaiser because of a family member, her husband maybe? needing some sort of serious operation. Hopefully, DFACS is closely monitoring the kids.
I think they are in LA to film the reunion. I wonder if she brought all three kids. It doesn’t seem like they have anyone with them. Perhaps they just send them with a babysitter and then go do their own thing in LA. I’m not even sure Kaiser’s grandmother can even take him for visits at the moment. Notice how Jenelle can’t even look at the camera guy who is asking the questions.
