Hi y’all. I (and many of us here) have been saying for years that this is not going to end well.
Barb was right when she said David was the worst boyfriend Jenelle has ever had.
I’m so glad Kaiser isn’t on The Land. I really hope Ensley and Maryssa get out, too.
Part of me worries if David doesn’t take this out on Jenelle and the girls, he will take this out on Barb. I’m especially worried about this if CPS places Ensley with Barb. MTV should be ponying up for Blackwater (or whatever they’re called now) level armed security guards for Barb for the next few days/weeks, especially if the courts give her temporary custody of Ensley. Heck, MTV could even spring for a nice AirBnB in the area where Barb lives for her and her household to hide out in for a while just in case (it would probably be cheaper than armed guards, too). In any case, I feel like MTV has some moral obligation (hahahaha, I know, they don’t have morals, but still...) to try to protect Barb and the kids that are with her. (And I agree with other posters that this is a rare case where it seems like Ensley would be better off with strangers who work with CPS rather than a family member, at least for everyone’s physical safety.)
I really hope maybe there’s some random cousin or aunt/uncle on David’s side who is sane and who knows the kids but doesn’t have “beef” with David who is stable and kind. Maybe Ensley & Maryssa could be placed there without David completely losing it at them/putting them in danger (and also because I kind of hope Ensley & Maryssa, at least, get to stay together and because is Barb is honestly too old to take on raising another child for 16 more years).
Ugh. I‘m worried about the girls but also about Barb & Jace depending on how this all shakes out & how David’s crazy temper flares. Nobody better let anything happen to Barb & her household. I’ll be forever pissed at & hold MTV at least partially responsible if it does.
