'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Jenelle Evans Admits Just How Far She's Gone to Get High

27

Jenelle EvansMaybe it would have been easier to take Jenelle Evans' tears during part one of the finale special of Teen Mom 2 with Dr. Drew if we didn't know that she was recently arrested on heroin charges. As it was, it was a little hard to take her seriously as she turned on the waterworks and pinned the blame for all her drug problems on ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp.

These would be her past drug problems, mind you, not anything current. The reunion special was shot back in November, and Jenelle was forced to answer for being stoned on camera. Her confessions were more than a little unsettling.

Jenelle admitted to Dr. Drew that she overdosed at least once while visiting Kieffer's family in New Jersey. And even though she insisted she always used clean needles, Jenelle admitted to the TV shrink that she left shooting up to Kieffer. As Dr. Drew pointed out, she had no real idea what he was using or how he was doing it.

At least, that's her story. Through tears, we heard how much she hated using the hardcore drug, how it landed her in the hospital several times as she was coming down off a high, and how she has absolutely no clue how to shoot up herself.

Yeah.

Right.

I'd like to think that at the time -- way back in November -- Jenelle really thought she was going to clean up her act. She seemed to think she was doing fine at the time. She was even righteously indignant with Dr. Drew that her mom hasn't yet loosened up and allowed her to let Jace stay overnight at her apartment.

But the charges pending against her now, and the fact that she was served for being behind on her child support for Jace just a few months after the finale special was shot, make each revelation to Dr. Drew sound more less like the talk of a teen mom who accidentally got pulled into something bad by a crappy boyfriend and more like the excuses of classic drug addict.

And as long as she's playing the blame game, Jenelle is not going to get better.

Fortunately things were much better for the other mom featured tonight. Kailyn went off the rails a bit when Dr. Drew forced her to have a sit-down with ex-boyfriend Jo's girlfriend Vee. She stomped off the stage, refusing to make peace with the other woman in her son's life. Ironically, Kail's biggest problem with Vee stems from photos she found of Jo's girlfriend online ... doing drugs.

But after a commercial break, she'd made peace with Dr. Drew at least and returned for a sweet talk with new husband Javi about their plans for the future, plans that focus on trying to provide stability for little Isaac.

At least one of the girls has her priorities straight.

What did you think of Jenelle's breakdown? Did it feel honest to you?

You can't blame your mistakes on anyone else but yourself. I don't feel sorry for her at all.

HI believe Janelle has a problen with he behavior and this is kinda normal for a bipolar person with no support. Her mom does not do her any good as emotional support and thats what she needs to be successful. Meds and counselling wont do ot alone for her. She needs family support. I thonk her bipolar plays role in her drug abuse. This is not am exscuse for her. But i deal with bipolar people study it and understand. We as a whole are so quick to brush off bipolar. She cannot control some of the things she does. I know what its like for a bipolar person first hand. They choose the wrong ppl and turn to drugs sometimes. She needs support and people saying she can do it instead of putting her down. Uelling at a bipolar person is going to mke them worse.

I understand jenelle has made a ton of mistakes but unless Ur bipolar u have no idea how it makes u feel. It's horrible n wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. ppl need to stop being so judgemental. try reading up on bipolar. It's a everyday struggle. to deal with it she is doing it the wrong way but unfortunately a lot of bipolar ppl turn to this drug. It's sad n I hope she gets the help she needs n becomes a good mom to jace. He needs her!!!

She needs to own up to her own problems. Everytime she breakes up with a guy it's all his fault she was just a helpless little victim. No she was right there with him. She a a dope head and a horrible mother.

It has been so many times that Jenelle says she's going to clean up, She does clean up but then she falls back Into the bad habits. Instead of shooting up heroin or smoking weed she should take her bipolar medication So she can be clean that's the only way she would get her son back. She owes it to her mother, Jace has been well taken care of in her care. She needs to Urn the right for jace to Spend more time with her. But as of now I wouldn't hit her Keep him overnight at all.

I think the author is giving Potato Head (Kail) a little too much credit.  She acted liked a complete brat when she stomped off the set (only to get lost in the curtains offstage - haha).  I think her real problem with Vee is that she is Jo's girlfriend & nothing else.  Potato Head admitted being a former pot smoker herself, so why should she care if Vee smokes, as long as she's not doing it around Isaac?  Hypocrite.

Every time i watch janelle on the show i just sit here in complete disgust. I am a manic depression and have a few other disorders that trigger my moods on a regular basis. I have learn to deal with my problems with out medication. I can't understand how she makes it so serious and why she acts the way she does.when i watched the check up last night i couldn't believe the tears and i don't think they were real,they were just for show.she does it at every check up with dr.drew and everyone feels sorry for her. Well i don't jace is better off with her mother cause she will never get her act togeather. Just because you are bipolar doesn't mean illegal drugs are a way to deal with it. consuling is just fine,as for support everyone wonders why she don't have none cause she blows up at anyone that tries to help her. With that i believe jace is where he belongs and not by her when you never know when she is gonna turn to drugs again
