Teen Mom 2 About to be Canceled!

According to a new report by www.nypost.com MTV is pulling the plug on Teen Mom 2. Apparently Jenelle Evans may be at fault, "Insiders say producers are concerned the attention-seeking reality star has become a liability for the show, which tries to characterize itself as a cautionary tale about the hardships of too-young motherhood.


They are worried that Jenelle's need for attention from fans is making MTV look bad! Considering she puts every dramatic moment on twitter I wouldn't be surprised by this. 

Since the fourth season of Teen Mom 2 has already filmed I'm assuming they will air it... maybe. I'm under the impression that MTV was filming a 5th season and planning on continuing the series but it looks like the crazy lives of the Teen Moms are too much for MTV to deal with.

  1. I would be surprised if MTV took the high road and killed the show because of Jenelle. They know that the Ambers and the Jenelles of the series are the drama factories and the money makers. Caitlynn and Tyler are one of the only sane couples in the series and how much cash do they bring the network compared to Jenelle?

  2. I am not a fan of hers but Amber is WAYYYYY worse. As terrible as Jenelle can be she is still someone to learn from, even if you are learning what NOT to do.

    1. Disagree. The difference here is that while Amber did some horrible things, she finally took a moment to see outside herself and realized " Holy shit, I am majorly fucked up and I can't get better on my own." I don't understand why she chose jail over rehab but she knew that she needed a structured environment away from the media to basically reboot herself and grow up. Jenelle is a walking ego monster who thinks she can do no wrong and manipulates the shit out of people, be they her lovers, friends, family, fans or the very network that funds her addiction, which she herself has never openly admitted to, unlike Amber, who was upfront with Dr. Drew about her addiction to pain meds. The next time we see Jenelle will either be on Intervention, Celebrity Rehab or in the Oak Island obituaries.

    2. Notice that Jenelle always retweets supportive tweets? I find it so funny, like she is trying to prove that she is likeable or in the right.

      Most of the people that support Jenelle do so because they identify with her, or want to be retweeted, or...

    3. im so glad amber choose jail did u not see how worse she became in rehab she was so off her face wen they sent her to rehab on the show she looked like a really bad junkie and after rehab all the meds she was on was like a zombie. That's why she choose jail cas its cold turkey unless u can afford illegal drugs. She did the best thing for her and I for one says go amber as for jenelle and mtv did you not notice that ambers paychecks increased over the other girls the worse her behavior and the same with jenelle mtv love the drama the bigger the dramas the bigger there audience the bigger the audience the bigger the cash cow mtv aren't stupid and encourage these girls bad behavior

    4. They should just drop jenelle!!! Dnt let the rest of them suffer just cuz jenelle is begging for constant attention. I would actually love the show if she wasn't in it, she the worst part of the show. It amazes me that they would dump the show cuz usually the more intense craziedness there is the better the ratings. I think this is just to scare us. But I won't mind them just bumpin jenelle off :)

    5. Okay, we are obviously missing one major point here. Even at her worst, Amber didn't update twitter/facebook every five minutes or post pictures of her drugs. Nor did she even deny she had a problem when things got bad. Shes getting help as we speak and doing what she had to do. Jenelle would never choose jail for her better, she would miss a concert. She FAKED being pregnant, FAKED a miscarriage, FAKED that every guy shes ever been with has hit her, got on METH. Got married to a guy she was with two weeks and then runs back to an ex when shes done with that. And i'm surprised she doesn't alert the media when she goes to the potty. The other girls on TM2 are fine, but for the sake of Jace maybe it is best the show gets pulled and everyone can forget about Jenelle. She will have to get a real job and quit being so immature. Then maybe she will care about her child, get some mental help and grow up. My three year old can make better decisions than this girl.

    6. For some of you who might have been wondering about Amber and why she did the things she did, go to this blog written by her brother, Shawn.
      http://shawn-portwood.blogspot.com/

      As for Jenelle, while she does have serious issues, I think she'll grow up eventually. But until she admits to herself that she has a problem, we won't see that happen. Also, I find it hard to believe that she's egotistical. I think she's actually very insecure, and tries to act confident, but comes off conceited. I mean, look at all the negative press and attention she gets. I also think Teen Mom 2 should stop after season 4. That way she can work on herself, which she'll probably do after her 15 minutes of fame are over, and she won't get bashed as much as she would if they took her off the show.

    7. I do believe that being egotistical is in fact a symptom of insecurity. They are not mutually exclusive.

      Beyond that, the definition of "egotism" on wiki basically has our little Jenelley-face pegged.

      "Egotism is the drive to maintain and enhance favorable views of oneself, and generally features an inflated opinion of one's personal features and importance — intellectual, physical, social and other.
      The egotist has an overwhelming sense of the centrality of the 'Me': of their personal qualities. Egotism means placing oneself at the core of one's world with no concern for others, including those loved or considered as "close," in any other terms except those set by the egotist.

      Egotism is closely related to "loving one's self" or narcissism - indeed some would say “by egotism we may envisage a kind of socialized narcissism”. Egotists have a strong tendency to talk about themselves in a self-promoting fashion, and they may well be arrogant and boastful with a grandiose sense of their own importance. Their inability to recognise the accomplishments of others leaves them profoundly self-promoting; while sensitivity to criticism may lead on the egotist's part to narcissistic rage at a sense of insult. (Rage? Jenelle? NAH!)

      Looked at differently, the conceit of egotism describes a person who acts to gain values in an amount excessively greater than that which he or she gives to others. Egotism may be fulfilled by exploiting the sympathy, irrationality or ignorance of others, as well as utilizing coercive force and/or fraud."

      The very last sentence in all of that sums up the last few months of her life.

      Egotist.

    8. Stop judging this girl! Who are any of you to judge anyone? You pick her apart when you yourself are no better than that GIRL. She is still young and will one day grow up and get her shit together but who in the hell do you people think YOU are to say anything about the mistakes she is making. Only because she is on TV do you get the privilege of seeing those mistakes she is making. If she was some random girl on the street you would never know. So...until you walk a mile in her shoes..There is only 1 judge on judgement day and it damn sure isn't 1 of you!

    9. Actually, I am better than Jenelle. I have a career, I have been waiting until I have a decent savings to have a kid, I am in a stable relationship of 4 years, I don't have a criminal record and when I was her age I was a fulltime student working toward my BFA, chose NOT to date so that I could focus on school, didn't have my first drink until my 21st birthday, kept away from drugs (still haven't tried anything harder than pot and for that matter I can count on one hand the number of time I have smoked it in my life) all the while preparing for my first trip abroad to Japan to take in the architecture.

      BUT OH YEAH I ARE NO BETTER THAN HER. Sorry, but even young people can make GOOD, SOUND decisions in their lives. She does not get a freebie for being young. She willfully lied to the press, to her fans, to her family, to her friends. She faked a goddamn miscarriage. How disrespectful is that to the women who were actually pregnant with children that they wanted and lost them for reasons beyond them?

      Oh yeah, not everyone is a Christian, so you can't go waving your judgement of God card as you please.

    10. "You pick her apart when you yourself are no better than that GIRL."

      I'm sorry, did you just judge us?

    11. I agree, you can't allow Jenelle or anyone else to make excuses for her actions just because she's young. I'm 22, graduating with a B.A. in Biology and Chemistry at a highly selective women's college. I have an AAS degree and work two jobs as well as being a full time student. I have had two of my research projects published. I didn't have my first drink until my 21st birthday, I've never done drugs, and I was just admitted into Dental school to be a dentist, admissions for Fall 2013. So, being young is not an excuse. You can't generalize that all people who are young act as she does because that is such an ignorant statement. My successes are very important to me and one has a choice to be successful, she chose not to be. I go to school with a lot of young mothers who get their bachelors degrees, so being a young mom is also not an excuse to not be successful.

    12. Uhh...Seeing as I have a job, a husband, CUSTODY OF MY CHILD, don't have a drug problem and never did, I am better than she is. I have great friends who had kids in high school, and each of them has graduated and gone on to live great lives, without losing custody of their children, getting addicted to drugs, the list goes on. Being young isn't an excuse. You still know right from wrong.

    13. To little miss don't judge:

      1- I love the above comment on how you just judged us and threatened us with eternal damnation!

      2- What do you think of Hitler? Good guy? Just misunderstood? We don't really understand, do we, because we only know him from a book he wrote himself, 1st hand witnesses, and press coverage - oh, and his actions.

      Now that you mention it, I can't believe we form our opionions when we obviously don't know the whole story!

      Wait... Doesn't Jenelle blog/tweet/facebook/talk to cameras about her life? Have her friends ever been on stickam talking about her (1st hand accounts)? Does the press publish articles about her?

      Does she have custody of her son?
      Has she been caught (multiple times) lying?

      Why are you so desperate to defend Jenelle?

      She has no crediblity - and when you come to her defence with the arguement above... Well... It makes me question your judgement!

      Delete
    14. I don't see that as defending Jenelle. You only see bits and pieces of her life, whatever MTV decides to show you so you really can't judge. You can voice your opinion and her choices, sure. But as far as calling her a bad mother, do you think her son would've been better off in her custody? I was a teen mother faced with that choice of giving up temporary custody of my child because I was in school and couldn't provide health insurance for my son BUT I didn't do it. I raised him the best I could have (he's 20) but I do sometimes wonder if I did what was best for HIM. That was a very hard decision she had to make and I think that it was the most unselfish thing she could've done for her child. So what you are saying is she's is an unfit mother that doesn't take care of her child. Does that make any sense? NO it doesn't. And all of you think so highly of yourselves and were quick to be defensive, how do we know YOU aren't liars and drug addicts and are everything that you say you are? WE don't!

    2. Agreed - not only because she is wreching the show, but also because the MTV money and fame are cataylst to futher negative behavior.

      I would love to see Jenelle get a real job, but the reality is she will probably end upon welfare.

    3. No way should they kick her off of the show. The show would be boring without her. People love drama as long as it doesn't involve themselves and she is just one big drama filled series all to herself. I just saw last night on the Kathy Griffin show where she said that Jenelle is her fav. on the show. Jenelle is a mess and people watch just to see what she's gotten herself into. The show would lose a large fan base if they did so.

  4. Amber at least kept thing off the internet. You found things out as they happened on the show, not so much from twitter and such. Jenelle is difficult to work with. Especially this last year, she ran away to NJ with Kieffer to do Heroin and didn't contact MTV, they kept trying to figure out where she was and she ignored them. She is a wild card. I can understand them not wanting to deal with it anymore. I just hope they air the 4th season.

  5. I have to disagree with the anon above, Jenelle is worse! Obviously Amber had/has problems and didn't make the best decisions always regarding Gary in front of Leah but at least she tried to be a parent. Jenelle is a train wreck and I'm surprised she hasn't been locked up yet for a while!

  6. It's not just Jenelle. Leah has now been pregnant 3 times before turning 20. Ratings are dropping, too. They ended the original TM after 4 seasons, I figured they'd do the same with TM2.

    3. Leah has two kids, and has been married twice by the time she's 20 and has been pregnant 3 times. She has a track record of moving way too quickly, and sure she takes are of her children, and I think she's a good mom, but that doesn't mean keep pumping out babies and marrying the next guy who comes along within a two month span. she's giving off the wrong message to young girls who watch the show.

  8. Please. They're not gonna cancel the show. Bad publicity? Come ON!! It's not any worse than 98% of the True Life episodes they air 100 times a day. And I agree, Jenelle isn't half as bad as Amber and they managed to forget about the bad publicity and get in her face and show EVERY second of every single fight her and Gary had and every moment of all the legal trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Amber was not that bad when it came to pure motherly duties. Aside from exposing Leah to a toxic relationship, she was a fairly decent mom. She took care of Leah and Leah seemed to have a decent mother-daughter relationship with her. She asked for Amber and about Amber when Amber wasn't there. It shows that Amber was around enough for them to form a pretty good bond.

    Jace and Jenelle do not have anything close to a mother-son relationship. I think Jenelle is more of an older sister to Jace than a mother. A bad older sister, at that.

    Amber realized that she was wrong and needed help. She didn't do it for attention. She did it because she couldn't help it. If she was doing it for attention she would have had a twitter or facebook. Jenelle does stuff and blames other people for it. I don't think I've EVER heard Jenelle say that her mistakes were her fault. She knows what she's doing is wrong, but she does it anyway because she loves the attention. I never got that feeling from Amber. Amber was a standard case of a kid being brought up in a home with substance abusing parents that didn't ever parent her. Jenelle is a case of being entitled and an attention whore. I firmly believe that Amber will get her life together one day. I don't think Jenelle ever will.

    1. Amber was NOT a great Mom! She sat on the couch while Leah played. She fed the kid fast food constantly, because it was easier. She would make plans then break them...

      Amber was not that great of a mom, nevermind the emotional outbursts/new boyfriends/ lack of priority on Leah (like when Amber had plans to spend time with Leah, but the dumped her to go and look at houses).

      Both Amber and Jenelle should not have had children. Doesn't matter who is worse.

    2. Anon @ 3:20

      Amber never broke plans with Leah to look at houses.

      Amber was asking "hey Gary, can I have Leah today" and he pulled his "today isn't a good day Amber". Then he said "how about tomorrow?" and she said "I have to go look at houses tomorrow" and then he goes "OH WELL YOU WANNA DO THAT INSTEAD OF SEE YOUR DAUGHTER OKAY". Trying to turn it around on her, when he's the one never letting her see Leah. He just wants control that's all. He always says "todays not a good day". Really? I could maybe understand it if you had to bring her over, but many times Amber offered to drive and see her. Gary would appreciate having the burden of childcare taken off him for a bit. Sadly though, he appreciated spiting Amber even more. I wonder if he still feels spiteful and that's why he won't take Leah to see Amber in prison.... Gary's ass better realize that he isn't just hurting Amber by doing that but he's hurting their innocent child.

    3. you are probably right. That episode was a long time ago. But at the same time, why couldn't she take her daughter? (I know that for practical reasons it might not be best, ie telling her things like "Do you want this to be your new home" may not be helpful.

      At the same time, Amber was not really there for Leah. She would call wanting to come see her at bedtime. She probably had allllll day to make contact, but she didn't.

      Amber, like most addicts, really did not prioritize Leah. She was not a great Mom. Gary is a jerk, no doubt, but Amber made a lot of really dumb choices.

      And maybe Gary (Whom I detest) did have reasons on certain days why Amber just couldn't come over. I think it might get annoying too, if Amber never planned ahead and wanted Gary/Leah to be at her beck and call.

      Delete
    4. Anon @7:49 actually Amber did tell Gary the ne t day would work on the phone. I wasn't until the next day came around that she told him she had to go look at houses. I remember that part specifically because it really pissed me off.

    5. Mia never claimed Amber was a great mom. She said she was not that bad. I think her point was. That Amber was a hell of a lot. Better mom than Jenelle is, which i think we can all agree with.

  11. I completely disagree with all this crap about amber being worse.
    Amber didn't make up a pregnancy and have a fake miscarriage.
    Or she didn't put on blast when she was pregnant and then had an abortion and tried to push it off as a MC.
    MC are horrible experiences and if she really went thru one she wouldn't have been doing the things she was saying on twitter.

    But that's why I watch the show.
    To watch all the drama.
    They won't cancel.

  12. ^^^You seriously think Amber is worse than Jenelle? Atleast Amber is seeking the help she needs, she knew she was going on the wrong path and CHOSE to seek help, because let me remind you she asked for 5 years because she knew that was the only way she could help herself, She's young and made mistakes but, what's important is that she realize she was making mistakes and chose to help herself, it take alot for a person to realize it and do something about it. Jenelle in the other hand is an attention whore, she doesn't want to help herself. She loves men more than she loves herself and her son!!

  15. I truly can't understand how anyone could see Amber as a "good mother" she was a train wreck - and let's get real - she didn't choose jail - she did the crime and now is doing her time. That baby would have grown up with extreme emotional issues having Amber daily in her life.

    Jenelle is a TRAIN-WRECK that needs to be locked in a padded room somewhere. Thank God for Barbara - she's not the nag that anyone thought - she had lived with crazy Jenelle for years. There should be a page with a summary daily - she's is just out of control and not ready or seemingly able to get it together, it's just a daily mess.

    1. what are you even talking about? amber did choose jail over rehab, she knew that she needed a more structured environment to get clean. that's what was best for her AND leah.

    2. Amber did not choose jail, it was a consequence that probably would have been ordered had she not chosen it. It did work out for the best, it seems. But it wasn't an active choice to better herself, it was a default choice because she was still abusing drugs.

      Delete
    3. Amber Technically chose prison over rehab but to be fair, why would she stay in the rehab when it wasn't helping her and she was going to end up in prison anyway? She could not stay clean on her own. The rehab she was in was not like the one we saw on MTV. She lived at her grandmothers house and had to go to the courthouse or wherever and do drug tests and meetings. She was still using and she knew that she needed to be forced to quit using. So she just decided to go to prison instead of waiting and possibly dying from an overdose.

      She made the smart decision in my eyes. She is now working everyday in prison, supervising others, she went through all of her rehab programs. She's doing 100X better now.

      Delete
    4. She really did not have a decision, she had a dirty piss test which was going to come to light in court that day, so she chose prison before it was chosen for her. She did it to save face, and probably because she was facing a lot of pressure.

      Amber did not chose prison willingly. It was gonna happen one way or the other, but by choosing it she probably got a reduced sentence. She did it to minimize the consequences.

  19. I am so over this whole "Teen Mom" show. MTV should finish airing season 3, then pull the plug. If anything they could always make TM2 available online/dvd only. And there really is no need for Teen Mom3. This show is not that interesting anymore, and some of the girls are getting out of hand all because they have fifteen minutes of fame.

  20. I just watched the last episode and I 've been thinking what's the point of all this. Yeah, sure at first it showed these teenagers struggling and adjusting to be mothers to their newborns but NOW?
    They are in their 20s and have enough money to give their children a pretty decent life. Some of them made really poor decisions since then. Jenelle is an addict who spends her time updating status on twitter. Leah got married and divorced within 6 months, got engaged to another man few months later, got pregnant, had a miscarriage, married the guy and got knocked up again all within 6 months or less.
    Is this the example they are supposed to set?
    Chelsea and Kail for different reasons both show to have quite healthy lives, but that doesn't mean we need to see them on air.

  22. this show has got far from its original goal, which is to portray the lives of teen moms. now its all about daddy's spoiled rich girl Chelsea whining about Adam or GED, Leah and Kailyns boyfriend/husband issues and of course drama, drama and drama from Jenelle. they rarely show th girls taking care of their kids, playing with them etc. some ppl even accused Leah of not doing excercises with Ali just because they didn't show footage of that on tv.

    MTV kept Jenelle onscreen for the views only, like Amber... but this is nowhere close to showing teen mom's lives, this is pure white trash antics. Jenelle would have tourned out to be just like this without MTV, but MTV provides her money and fame, which makes her condition even worse. she should be admitted to a rehab immediately and forbidden to use any kind of social media. and mtv definitely should conclude teen mom 2.

  24. Well for one thing, this is hardly the consequence of too-early motherhood. That would involve having to be a mother. Honestly, she sees her son less than a full time nanny. Or even regular babysitter.... Soo this is really an issue of "HEY I'M LYKE 16-20 YRS OLD AND IM ON MTV BYTCHES" The fact that its based on children, in Jenelle's case, is really a combination of coincidence and tragedy.

  25. I think they should take Leah and Jenelle off the show, because jenelle is a mess and she always thinks 'oh im so cool, im doing everything right' bla bla bla, but Babs is the one who is taking care of him.
    Jenelle's life is all about drugs, boyfriends and jail, anything that does not include jace and having a teen mom life like kailyn. Leah, on the other hand, got married twice, got pregnant again and I thought this show was about the struggling and wathever, obviously by getting pregnant u are not so struggling! I don't see the point for this two still being on the show. -_-

  26. There is absolutely no excuse for Jenelle Evans---Rogers---whateverthefuck her name is. People who support her bull shit are pathetic. Are there really that many people in the world who think Jenelle is a good mother? It slaaaaaaays me. Where the hell does anyone get "good mother" out of an irresponsible, ungrateful little bitch who lost custody of her son because she's a drug addict, slutbag, that's constantly in and out of jail? If that's a good mom I fear the world my children will grow up in. I'm so sick of people blaming Barbara too. She has to be protective of Jace, because his own mother is a self centered flake. In fact, Barbara is the only major constant in that poor little boy's life! Youth isn't to blame either! I was a young mother myself and never went that far off the track. In fact, I don't know ANY mothers who made that much of a mess of their lives because they were "young and dumb."

    As for Leah and Chelsea --- a pair of jokes, the both of them. Leah purposely gets herself knocked up and relies on men to keep herself afloat. Way to teach young women to stand on their own and be independent! Marriage is just a piece of paper, it doesn't make her perfect. So she's a married woman --- she's also been pregnant three times, married, divorced, married AGAIN, no post secondary education or plans to make a career for herself at all, OH and did I mention she's 20!? You're a public figure and this is 2013! Use your MTV paycheque for something other than nails and bleach!

    Then there's moron Chelsea who took three bloody years to get her GED. If she had stayed in high school, she would have finished sooner than that. AND she'd have a high school diploma to show for it. Save the "being a mom and a student is hard" bull shit because that's not a valid argument where Chelsea is concerned. She's had TONS of family support she was just too spoiled and lazy to get off her ass and do the work.

    The only one I have an ounce of respect for is Kailyn. SOMETIMES she has a bad attitude, but at least she's responsible and independent. She's the ONLY one who can have her mistakes blamed on her age. Being young and acting immature from time to time is excusable. At the end of the day, she's begun from the bottom and worked her way up. IE. Made actual PROGRESS. Kailyn is the only one from Teen Mom 2 setting a decent example. Her story sends a message of empowerment to young girls everywhere.

    1. Great comment!

      I agree that Kailyn has done really well for herself.

      I think we are all human and we all make mistakes, and having cameras around all the time has to be hard...

      At least Leah and Chelsea are not leeches on society, unlike Jenelle who abuses the legal and medical system at present, and most likely the welfare system when the MTV funds run out.

      I also wonder about these people who continue to not just support Jenelle, but sing her praises. What has she ever done that was worthy of respect?

      We shall see if Amber can actually turn her life around or not (I am hoping, kinda naive, I know). But Jenelle has had every chance and opportunity and yet her life hits lower and lower lows.

      What will it take to get her to change and find a life worth living? You would think the upcoming divorce/"pregnancy coupled with the thousands of comments wishing her 'baby' dead would have some impact.

      Nope.

      She went out drinking.

      Jenelle is the epitomy of what is wrong with society.

    2. Jenelle's a bad mom. She shouldn't have custody now. She could eventually be a good mom. She's not necessarily a bad person. It never ceases to amaze me how LITTLE people understand about mental illness. Jenelle's CLEARLY MENTALLY ILL. When someone has a mental illness, they don't have control over that mental illness. They need PROPER TREATMENT, which she hasn't received. Jenelle needs something intensive, like a stay at a decent mental health center for a year or more to turn her life around and get healthy. This is a HEALTH issue. Jenelle needs HELP with her mental health. What she's received hasn't been near enough to the help she needs at all. Has she made really bad decisions? Yes. But most of these she probably wouldn't have made if she didn't have a mental health issue. I've known a few people who were once like Jenelle, and they're completely different people today, and it's all thanks to PROPER treatment of their mental illnesses. I'm not pathetic just because I realize the very obvious truth that Jenelle has a mental illness she needs help with. That doesn't mean I support her current behaviors or outlook on life. I support the person she definitely has the potential to be, and that's one of the things that makes me a decent person.

      I don't agree with Leah's decisions at all. Her path is not one I'd choose. I personally think it's ridiculous to have so many pregnancies at her age, and two marriages. But why would you say her current life decisions make her not independent, etc? Did you ever stop to realize this is the decision SHE made? That kind of life isn't empowering for YOU? Ok, then don't live that way. Maybe it's empowering for her. Maybe she actually WANTS this kind of life. If that's the case, the example she's setting is people should be able to make their own decisions, even if a lot of society disagrees with the choice. You and I disagree with the choices wholeheartedly, but that doesn't make her a joke. She CHOSE.

      You seem to assume a HELL of a lot about Chelsea's life. You only know what you see on camera. You have no idea of other circumstances that could've interfered with her ability to finish high school in what YOU consider the right way. She could also have some mental health issues you don't know of, maybe something terrible has happened in her life that she keeps quiet about, or there's the obvious - she's been in an on/off emotionally abusive relationship with the father of her child, and people are so ignorant on how much being in an emotionally abusive relationship can affect other areas of someone's life. And some people can only handle a few big things at a time, but that doesn't make them jokes. It sounded like Chelsea could only handle taking care of Aubree for the past few years. If anything, it shows how strong Chelsea is for realizing her limits. I wonder why people haven't stopped to consider that Chelsea probably didn't get a good education growing up? Not being well-educated can make completing GED's or high school very difficult, and not everyone does well learning from textbooks or the internet on their own. That is a failure of our public education system, or a failure by her parents for not investing in a better education for their daughter when they clearly had the money to.

      I understand your points on Kailyn, but she's not the only one who's made progress. Chelsea has too. We know she's completed her GED, and I believe she's in beauty school. She also takes care of her daughter. Kail treats most people she interacts with like absolute shit, she STILL refuses to meet the woman Jo's in a relationship with, and none of these are things to admire or respect at all. However, she's had a very tough life, obviously has jealousy issues, which are probably the reasons for her piss poor attitude and her refusal to meet Jo's girlfriend. She needs to get that shit together.

    3. New to the conversation:

      About Jenelle... I really honestly feel that she uses her "mental illness" as an excuse to be a complete fuck up. She is an adult now, if she needs help she needs to go and get it. She needs to make that decision and change her life. Mental illness is no excuse to make bad decisions and be a shitty person when she clearly makes enough money to get extensive help. The world doesn't owe Jenelle anything and no one is going to do the work for her. I'm sure I'm the 35436463534th person to say this but... time to grow up and be an adult already.

      I don't understand how ANYONE (bi-polar or not) can allow their child to be raised by someone else why they keep making the most idiotic choices possible. Is some of it because she has mental issues? yes. She has emotional issues and low self esteem as well. Some of it also has to do with the fact that she is uneducated and selfish.

      Leah... is not the smartest person in the world either. her family isn't any better. They all seem to have a couple screws loose. It's lucky she got with a rich guy because if not I'm not so sure she would have made it through Nursing School. For a moment she was going to stand on her own and get a career going for herself but then decided to quit that and have more kids instead. If that's what she wants to do then ok, but she is another one that can't learn from the past. Rushing into having sex, kids, and marriage didn't work out that great for her the last time. Think about it. She had to have been having sex with Jeremy within what? 2 months of knowing him? It just isn't a great message to send to teen girls watching this show. She seems to lack self respect and that is unfortunate.

      Chelsea COULD have finished high school. Yeah yeah yeah there could have been other things going on but look at how it ended up. 2-3 years later and she is still working on that damn GED. She didn't have much highschool left and with the amount of money her family makes (just look at their huge houses and the fact that her dad paid for her house too for quite some time) she could have easily found a school or program to help her get finished with school faster. Like someone else said- She has a TON of family support. Her parents take Aubree whenever she needs them to. Plus she has friends that watch her AND Adam's parents who take her occasionally too. Even the GED shouldn't have taken her so long. All she does is take care of Aubree, go out with friends and maybe sometimes study for the GED. She worked PART TIME for a while but it didn't really last long. All of these girls make enough money that they should be able to go to school and do what they need to do while they have the opportunity. Chelsea is in beauty school Finally, but she could have been practically done by now.

      Kailyn does have a better grasp of reality than the other girls because she HAS to. She has been on her own pretty much from the beginning. She often is cold to people and doesn't really seem like she is sincere all the time. She seems pissed most of the time. However I do think she is doing well, she goes to school, she has her future planned, she takes care of her son and makes a good effort to co-parent with Jo. Her reasons for not liking his girlfriend have more to do with the girl not being someone she wants her kid around more than it is about jealousy. They started off badly and she can't get over it. She probably started off being jealous but she is married now and seems very happy with Javi so I think now it's more just her not liking Vee as a person.

    4. Not all of Jenelle's issues are the result of a mental illness! Stop using that as an 'excuse'.

      Should we also forgive all murders/arsonists, because they are all mentally ill as well?

      Terrorists also should not be judged or punished, as they are just fighting for what they believe in, right?

      Jenelle may have mental illness, but she is also a complete idiotic loser.

    5. Anon at 11:34, comparing Jenelle to a murderer, arsonist, or terrorist is way too extreme, and those people shouldn't be excused since their mental illnesses currently have no successful treatments. Jenelle has NOT committed a criminal act of violence as a result of her mental illness. She's made very poor life decisions as a result. You'll probably say something like "her choices hurt people," well yeah her choices affect others negatively, but that doesn't put her in the same category as a violent criminal, and as someone who's been a victim of violent crime, I take offense to that comparison.

      Anon at 9:14, why are mental health issues not a valid excuse for poor life decisions (when they don't violently harm others)? Poor life decisions are often symptoms and results of mental illness, and most mentally ill people don't believe they need help enough to go get it for themselves, so others need to take the responsibility of getting them into treatment because their mental illness prevents them from taking that responsibility. It has NOTHING to do with "acting like an adult" or not. You don't understand how mental illness (and I doubt bipolar is all she is) could interfere with someone's parenting because you clearly don't know enough about mental illness, and that's a failure of our society to educate people properly about mental illness.

      Leah isn't very bright, and doesn't have the brightest family either. I don't personally agree with her decisions but her decisions do NOT indicate a lack of self-respect. Choosing to have sex when you want to have sex with who you want to have it with is NOT disrespectful to yourself. If anything, someone lacks self-respect by not making consensual sexual choices that they want to make just because of the way society views it. The bullshit about women not respecting themselves if they have sex in a certain time period or certain way needs to end. There's nothing wrong with having safe, consensual sex when someone is ready to have it.

      Again, about Chelsea, you clearly don't understand how much being in an emotionally abusive relationship can affect all areas of your life. It took me a while to complete some things I had to while I was coming out of a violent situation. It really can poison everything and leave you with very little energy to do all the things you need to do. Chelsea has been in an emotionally abusive relationship, and there could also be other hardships in her life that have interfered that you just don't know about.

      Kail is assuming a lot about the girl Jo is in a relationship with. Rumors, some pictures, physical appearance, etc., don't tell you all you need to about a person. You have to actually get to know them to know what they're like, which Kail has refused to do. And when you're a parent, if someone is spending so much time around your kid, you get to know them or at the least MEET them so you know exactly who your child is spending time with. It's irresponsible not to do so.

    6. You are assuming a whole lot about me. Do you have children? Just curious.

      Why is it that mental illness excuses poor life choices as long as they aren't violent? That really made no sense to me. Being Bi-Polar does not mean that you are a selfish and horrible person. Jenelle is the way she is because of her personality, her insecurities, her lack of real responsibility in life and the fact that she has a lot of money to spend on herself from being on these shows.

      I disagree that society needs to come together and force Jenelle into getting treatment and becoming a decent person. no no no. You can't MAKE someone change if they don't want to. If Jenelle REALLY wanted her son back, she would have gotten the help she needed a long time ago, and learned from it and changed.

      Jenelle is irresponsible and since she didn't have someone there everyday saying "Did you take your meds today!?" of course she didn't take them properly. That is immaturity and being irresponsible. Those things are part of her personality, not just from being bi-polar.

      About Leah, there is a reason people say it's better to wait to have sex. First of all, most guys out there looking to bang a girl they hardly know is most likely not going to take you seriously if you just go along with it. 2 months (and I doubt they even waited that long) is too soon to have sex with someone you just met. How can you really trust that person and feel safe with them? What if it turned out that he really was a douchebag putting on a front for her? To me, not taking the time to get to know someone before you spread your legs for them is being disrespectful to yourself. It means that you don't respect or value your body and emotions enough to make sure that person is right for you and that they are serious about you.

      I think more girls need to stop giving it away.

      Chelsea, I actually have been in emotionally abusive relationships. I know where she is coming from. I also know that when there is a child involved, that child becomes your number one priority. You do what you have to do when you are a parent.

      What if she wasn't on Teen Mom? What if her dad got sick of taking care of her while she struggle through GED practice tests for 3 years.

      Talk to the single moms of the world that work over-time every week, go to school and raise their kid, without the help of 100 people.

      When you are an adult and a parent you can't just lay in bed and cry all day. The world just doesn't work that way. Chelsea's problem is more about not wanting to let go of Adam than it is about the way Adam treats her.

    7. I'm assuming you don't have a proper understanding of mental illness based on statements you make that show you obviously lack a huge understanding of mental illness. And how is me having children relevant at all here? It's not. I have two children though. I never said mental illness "excuses" her life choices, I said her choices were a RESULT of her mental illness. Her mental illness is the REASON, and if she gets proper treatment, it may not be an issue anymore. The reason people who commit violent acts as a result of mental illness don't get to use that as an "excuse" is because the mental illnesses that cause violent behavior - sociopathy, psychopathy, etc., do not have any proven successful treatments. And are you a mental health professional who has properly tested Jenelle? If not, you don't get to say that the way Jenelle acts ISN'T a result of a mental illness. I personally believe based on what I know about psychology, what I do in my line of work, and people who I've known who were once a hell of a lot like Jenelle, that Jenelle has some mental illness that can and should be treated. I can't say %100 for sure that it's a mental illness, but based on my experience, research, and knowledge from a degree and career in psychology, I feel it's most likely that. Authorities (not society) should force Jenelle into treatment, like they force plenty of others into treatment. When peoples' mental illnesses are treated properly, even without their will, they can change drastically. Not taking meds is often a symptom of mental illnesses. You're making it very obvious that you don't know a lot about mental health issues.

      Those are YOUR personal beliefs about sex, and you're free to them - for yourself. That doesn't mean they're universally right and that everyone else should follow them, and it doesn't mean they don't respect themselves if they don't have the same sex lifestyle you do. And there are plenty of men out there who don't act or think like what you are saying men do. You don't get to dictate the sex lives of others. Shaming the consensual choices of others is a shitty thing to do, even if you wouldn't personally make those decisions.

      I'm glad it was so easy for you to do what you felt you had to do after coming out of an emotionally abusive relationship, and I'm sorry you went through that, but not everyone copes with it so easily, and they shouldn't be shamed for that. Chelsea has taken good care of Aubree despite her struggles in school. And, if you don't recall, she has done what she had to do. She did get her GED. Just not in an amount of time some people deem acceptable. But it doesn't matter because she still cared for Aubree. With the help of others? Yeah, but she still did it. If she hadn't had the help of others, she seems like the type of mother who would've figured out how to support her family while pursuing her GED.

      For someone who's been through an emotionally abusive relationship, I'm surprised you would say Chelsea's problem is more about not wanting to let go of Adam than it is about the way Adam treats her, since I'd think you would know that having a problem letting go of the abuser is a direct result of the way the abuser treats the abused. So those are not two separate problems. You will never agree with anything I say though, so whatever. Everyone else was posting their opinions and ignorant statements so freely, so I decided to stop hiding my opinions like I so often do. I just urge you all to do proper research on mental illness. I'm not going to come back here, because it looks like it will all be a repeat. And I wish you all the best in your parenting and in your lives.
