Aside from Jenelle Evans' trip to the hospital yesterday after feeling a lump in her throat, things with the Teen Mom star have been surprisingly quiet lately. I think it's safe to say the reason for that is her new boyfriend, Nathan Griffith. The underwear model with a steady job and paycheck has been dating Jenelle for a few weeks now, and the duo recently moved into a new place together.
Hmmm, a little alarming, yes. But what's even more worrisome is Jenelle's mother Barbara's opinion of the whole thing. The Teen Mom star tweeted to a doubtful fan last night that Jenelle's mom is "very happy" for her and her boyfriend Nate.
A mom who is very happy about her daughter moving in with her spankin' new boyfriend of not even a month? This is the same mom who didn't hate Courtland Rogers, right? Yeah ... not exactly sure if her moral compass is reliable.
Let's reflect on Jenelle's last relationship, shall we? Remember when Jenelle bragged about how cute her mom and Courtland were chatting in the car? How it was clear they had a great relationship? Yeah, this is the same guy who is currently sitting behind bars for heroin possession and assault.
I'm not saying that Nathan isn't a good guy. Like I mentioned, he has a steady job, a paycheck, and seems to be head-over-heels for Jenelle. But if we've learned anything, it's that just because Jenelle's mom likes one of her boyfriends doesn't mean the situation is good for her. In fact, it doesn't hold all that much weight at all. Sure, it's good for Jenelle's mind that she knows her mom "approves." However, that doesn't mean that the relationship or situation is good for her.
Plain and simple: Jenelle is moving VERY fast with this Nathan character, and with her history, that's usually not such a good thing. Who knows? Maybe this could finally be the guy to change Jenelle's bad habits, stop her from going on endless Twitter rants, and put an end to her destructive behavior. I say that with the highest of doubts, though.
Do you think Nathan and Jenelle are good together?
