    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    1) The picture... it’s not a good picture... even if her vagina wasn’t involved. It’s not even a lack of make up or styling, I rarely wear any make up, it just isn’t a good picture in any context of the word. Also I hate the phrase that the photo was “leaked” no, it was blatantly posted... leak implies it was an accident. 2) Why does she need a gun on set? Politics aside, why exactly does she need to film with a gun? Even if a fight breaks out on set, there has never been any issue of people using a weapon, no need for deadly force. 3) Slightly off topic, but I feel a little bad for McKenzie McKee... this is the third time it’s been rumored that she is filming, and in the meantime 2 completely unrelated to teen mom or 16 & pregnant have been hired. I feel for her current situation with her mom, but outside of that she just isn’t that interesting (in my opinion). 4) Why is MTV fighting so hard for Jenelle (that was rhetorical, I’m completely aware of the why, I just think it’s dumb). 5) The fact that it’s so “unfair” that Jenelle doesn’t get the opportunities the others get is just laughable. It’s not how she is perceived on MTV that is hurting her, it’s her and her husbands actions in real time that nobody outside of MTV will touch with a 10 foot pole. Even if she chills her social media out for a month or so (which it seems like she’s currently attempting to do) it’s just a matter of time before there is another blow up, and that’s what makes her unmarketable, she’s too much of a liability to any other network worth it’s salt. MTV shows all of this way after we all know what happened, so while it doesn’t help her perception, in the end her husbands actions have hurt her far more than MTV with his actions.

    The only thing I can really add to the convo is that Jenelle was more upset over her car being hit than her son being in a dangerous situation. I also liked when she was telling David how damaged it was while she was still driving and hadn’t even looked ( I don’t remember exactly what she said but she made a reference to how they hit her car and damaged it). Also showed her her true colors when David wasn’t agreeing with her and so she just hung up on him like she does anytime she has a hard co versatile.

    I find it so frickin hilarious that THIS is where Jenelle draws the line, I might even start watching the show again without her (but maybe not, it doesn’t change that the show is still played out). I thought she needed to be gone long ago, I kinda wish it was because she was fired for something she did, but this is a good second, and she has nobody to blame but herself (although I am interested to see how she twists it because we all know she will never take any responsibility).

    The thing is Doris wasn’t unlawfully holding Kaiser away from them... the law in that moment decided to have Kaiser stay with her, so I doubt that Jenelle and David will legally be able to keep Kaiser from his scheduled visitation. I don’t know why Nathan wasn’t there, but I think it was probably for the best, especially with David as belligerent as he was, had Nathan responded negatively it would have just fed into it, as it is now David just looks like an idiot.

    This is in no way a commentary on whether or not or why Kaiser may or may not be potty trained, I do not know where he is on that... but I was thinking Kaiser has as recently as May (his preschool award ceremony) been photographed wearing a pull up, so *if* he is still wearing pull ups and there was still a bruise he had to be hit hard. There are about a million scenarios where, even if he wears pull ups he might not have been when he was hit, so I’m not claiming this is even what happened, I hesitated on sharing it because I didn’t want it to be taken that way. My point/thought process is simply that if Kaiser is still wearing pull ups, that significantly decreases the chances that his bruises were accidental because a rough tumble or slip would be a lot less likely to leave a mark.

    I just wanted to share my experience of carrying meds in non-prescription containers... so I'm a nurse, I work in a psych partial hospitalization program, it’s basically long term out patient treatment for people with 2 or more psychiatric illnesses (ie schizophrenia and substance abuse) our patients are not (for seemingly obvious reasons) on any controlled substances, but because it’s partial hospitalization we control their medications, but they go to a group sober living home at night, so to get their night meds home we have to put them in labeled baggies, every medication must have a picture of the medication and a printout of the original label in the bottle, and it has to be stapled (that part might just be our regulation). This is how we transport all of their night or early morning meds, everything from sleep aids, bp meds, pain meds (the strongest we give is tramadol so nothing hard). I’m not saying any of this applies to the situation, just to the degree that meds should be transported, I live in Texas, so idk the regulations their, but any prescription *should* be in some sort of labeled container.

    Re: Jenelle can’t get no respect I’m going to refrain from the “they can’t air what you don’t do/say” speech. What I will say, I can only speak for myself, but I haven’t watched the show in 2-3 seasons, I keep up on here and social media because by the time this crap airs most of it has been played out in real time and I lost interest... so how mtv portrays her has little influence on my opinion, it’s what she does herself on social media. Honestly what I have seen from mtv, she gets a relatively good edit because real life seems to be worse. I’m curious how they are going to portray the recent events like David being fired. re: mtv’s stance on stepping in It was one thing when we were pretending they weren’t being filmed, but with the 4th wall broken for years now, I feel like they should step in when something is unsafe for the children. It basically felt like a brush off “you don’t know what happens behind the scenes” maybe we don’t, but we know that they continue to do these things over and over, which to me would indicate there are no consequences. They say they don’t know what’s happening in the cars in real time... ok... but they certainly do in editing and before they air it, and yet they show this girls texting and driving all the time, they proved this when they confronted Jenelle about her pregnancy. It would be annoying if they constantly meddled, but I wish the standards were a little higher than “the kids are breathing”.

    Unfortunately they had already filmed most of the season when David was fired, so we’ll have to put up with him up until then.

    This CAN’T be real.
  10. I can’t believe I’m going to say this because I’m a little surprised by my own opinion, but regarding Chelsea and when people say she should quit... I agree with the “why should she” argument. I say this as someone who thinks this show has long run it’s course, I stopped watching more than a year ago and just keep up here and on social media, so I feel like my natural thought process would be Chelsea should quit end the show already. Ending the show is still my inclination, but out of anyone I think Chelsea has every right to ride it out. We’ve stated before, it’s easy money and for the most part Chelsea has always followed her contract and been a relatively positive model for the show. Yes, there have been things she doesn’t film or won’t address, but I can’t really recall a on camera moment of her being like “I’m not filming” (correct me if I’m wrong). My impression is that she had a calm rational conversation about what she is and isn’t willing to show and made compromises (ie her wedding). Sure some consider her boring, but if anyone is going to get paid for this shit show stuff I’d rather it be Chelsea than Jenelle. I also want to quickly address last weekends reunion that Chelsea walked out, I know it’s not part of this current episode, but it relates to what I said in my post and I don’t plan to go in depth, I hope that’s ok mods I don’t want to derail the conversation. Since I said she has never outright refused to film, but I remembered after that she did last weekend, but I feel like that is a completely different situation and I don’t blame her for that. MTV shot themselves in the foot by making all of these exceptions for Jenelle, Amber, and Farrah that I feel like there was no way they could deny Chelsea, especially because she DID try to do her part and film, and everything hit the fan. Chelsea had every right to feel safe and not film when MTV couldn’t provide that. In summary, while I think MTV created these monsters and should pull the plug, I don’t fault Chelsea for holding on until the end, why should she be out the money when she isn’t the one necessarily acting a fool? There are parts of her life that she has hidden or refused to film, but at the end of the day she (seemed) talked to MTV and they agreed so she isn’t necessarily to blame.

    If I were pettier than I am I would screenshot the cocky divorce posts so that when it does happen I could post them to remind them how jerky they were. In my personal opinion people who aren’t worried about divorce don’t really post or talk about it, to me the way these posts come off is more that maybe they had a fight and weren’t on good terms, but then made up and now are trying to throw it in everyone’s faces how “wrong” they were when maybe they weren’t quite so wrong. Again, purely my speculation, I don’t know and quite frankly don’t have much interest in their personal lives (I know that seems contradictory to posting here, basically I’ll read about them when I see stuff, but I don’t seek out information and if I don’t hear anything about them I don’t really think about them).
  12. I’m so over this and I don’t even watch anymore (I haven’t for about 1 1/2 seasons I just read here and social media and don’t miss a thing) but hearing what aired tonight and knowing that this last weekend was more of the same just makes me wonder how much longer this can go on. I’m not even sure I understand what Kail and Bri have to fight about anymore... is it still Javi when neither of them have been with him for a while now? I have to wonder if this would all be going down if they hadn’t broken the 4th wall. I’m not gonna lie, I’d be down for the drama... IF innocent children weren’t caught in the crossfire, now it just feels gross... and it makes it even worse that these girls are getting paid for this shit.

    It would probably just trigger her and send her packing her bags back there.

    Yeah, and this is what makes me so mad about C&T’s insistence on posting about Carly, even if they were doing it innocuously (which I don’t believe they are, just saying hypothetically) their fan base does not strike me as the most stable bunch, evidenced by the number of “they should give Carly back” messages. They (C&T) KNOW fans contacting B&T has been an issue in the past, yet not once (that I can recall, correct me if I’m wrong) have they asked fans not to do it or tried to protect B&T and more importantly Carly or her brother.

    It’s true that people get defensive, but that also doesn’t mean they should get a free pass for everything, he can ask tough questions calmly and rationally and if they choose to lie or get upset we can see that, but he just skirts the issue and acts like everything is fine.
