There's no question Jenelle Evans is the most polarizing star in the history of the Teen Mom franchise. Fans either seem to love the North Carolina mom or hate her. And I do mean hate!
So what does the Teen Mom 2 star think of her reputation? She says it's unfair! In an interview with The Stir, Jenelle said she's setting the record straight on who she really is:
On being a "bad" mom:
Everyone's like, oh, you have Barbara to take care of Jace. I still go shopping for Jace. He still comes here. I still go grocery shopping and think about Jace and buy him all his groceries so when he comes over he has all his stuff. I don't let my friends eat his groceries and stuff! Tori comes and drinks all his juice, and I'm like, stop touching it!
So, I mean. It's just ... they need to open their eyes more!

On her criminal record:
I might have gotten arrested 30 times or whatever, but if you look at my record, EVERYTHING got dropped. Everything.*
So obviously I was not guilty for all of that and all of it was just bulls--t.
I'm just not that horrible of a person! I surround myself with negative people. I don't go looking for trouble; I just surround myself with negative people, so I want people to realize I have changed. I am in a better place.
Looks like we'll see when Teen Mom 2 starts on January 21!
What do you think? Is Jenelle in a better place?
