Jenelle reached out to Nathan after learning that he, too, has a child from a previous relationship – and no custody rights. "His ex-wife's parents have guardianship [of Emery, 2], kind of like the situation I'm in. He was like, 'No one understands the situation I'm in and that I deal with,' and I said that I could relate to him. We both have to deal with our parents to deal with our children."
So, despite the fact that Jenelle and Nathan do not take care of the children they already have, they thought having a baby together would be an excellent idea. Jenelle told MTV, “We just want a child of our own that we can raise together as a family. We want a stable relationship for Jace and Emery. We just want to settle down.” I weep for these kids – born to such selfish parents.
It's official – Jenelle Evans is pregnant again. The Teen Mom 2 star and her boyfriend Nathan Griffith are expecting their first child together. Reality Tea suspected as much in October – on Thanksgiving as well – and Jenelle finally confirmed the news this morning. First, she tweeted,
Later, Jenelle added, "Let the truth be told. For the full article and story on Nathan and I and about my second pregnancy, check out today's Us Weekly."
Briana added, "We were all shocked but I'm glad I was given a chance to share my story and change others! That's all that matters. Time to move on from MTV and do bigger and better things, and no, I don't mean become a porn star."
No Princess Briana: Couch Bound Teen Mom to look forward to? Bummer.
Jenelle Evans has been on her very best behavior lately — thanks to MTV's cameras I'm sure. There's no doubt in my mind that the only reason MTV filmed a new season of Teen Mom 2 is to show Jenelle's redemption.
Yesterday's stop on Jenelle's redemption tour was family court to discuss the $130/month child support payment she's been paying to her mother, Barbara Evans, for Jace. An inside source (probably named Jenelle) told Radar, "Mrs. Barbara Evans was in court with her daughter Jenelle, and she agreed to stop having Jenelle pay the child support."
Jenelle has been caring for Jace on a regular basis – and they seem happy. Let's hope it continues now that MTV's cameras have moved out and Jenelle's off the hook (if you can consider $130 on the hook) financially.
DISCLAIMER: the Teen Mom 3 reunion was taped on November 3, 2012. Yes. MTV is giving us footage that's over a year old to "update" us on the season.
Nevertheless, season one of Teen Mom 3 has come to an end, so it's time for the new Teen Mom cast to talk to Dr. Drew Pinsky. (FOR TWO HOURS!)
The reunion kicks off with Katie Yeager and Joey Maes. Surprise – they are back together! You see, every time Joey's new girlfriend nagged him, it reminded him of Katie. And Joey eventually came to realize that Katie's the only nagger for him. Isn't that sweet?
Katie reveals that Joey was with Brigette for a month before he came back to her. Everything that went wrong is still Joey's fault, of course, but Katie says she's trying to move on, adding, "The only way we're going to forgive and trust is if we move on."
Amber Portwood shocked us when she asked a judge to send her to prison eighteen months ago. Now, out on parole, the former Teen Mom star is making plans for the future and working on her relationship with her daughter.
In a recent interview, Shawn Portwood insisted his sister is clearheaded and sober now, adding that Amber's working hard to rebuild her life.
"Amber's focus is college," said Shawn. "Then she wants to start her own drug rehabilitation program." Sound crazy? Maybe not!Amber was released from prison after serving only seventeen months of a five year sentence mostly due to selflessly helping other inmates better themselves.
