Kailyn Lowry's Support Might Be the Last Thing Jenelle Evans Needs

Kailyn LowryKailyn Lowry is such a sweetheart -- it's crazy that her friendship with Teen Mom's Jenelle Evans is as strong as it is. You would think that goodie-goodie Kailyn would give this reformed bad-girl a wide berth. But Kailyn is nothing if not super supportive. After this week's episode of the show, she took to the Twitter-waves to applaud her friend Jenelle for getting sober and staying that way. Sweet!

Jenelle definitely seemed to appreciate it a bunch, responding back to her friend, just as nice as can be. But does reminding Jenelle how hard and crappy things used to be for her really help her? Praising her for her good choices is one thing, but reminding her of all her past struggles has got to hurt a little bit. Still, if Jenelle's not feeling that way about it, who are we to judge? Regardless, we hope these two focus less on their past struggles and more on all the joy the future has in store for them. Yay for besties!

Did you think Kailyn was being supportive or a busy-body?

How does saying she's proud of her for being sober NOW bringing up the past? She's commending her for being sober and staying sober, pretty sure that's a good thing.

I agree with Crissi - she's not bringing up the past any more than Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom fans do. Less really.

The girl gave her a compliment on her current lifestyle, being nice. It's not like Jenelle or any addict is just going to forget the past anyhow. This was overanalyzed and a tad ridiculous, is this really the only news out there?

i am a recovering addict. it is vital to my recovery to remember and accept my past. it is not helpful to live in regret and guilt. having a friend congratulate you on your continuing triumph over addiction is hardly bringing up painful memories. to remain hush-hush and silent about addiction is a truly harmful thing. it should not be the taboo subject that it is today, never discussing it allows many addicts to stay sick. every addict deals with their past choices in different ways, many are never able to get over the destruction they have caused. it is so important to have an open discussion about this in the public forum. for the number of lives addiction impacts, relatively few people are educated on the matter.
