'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Jenelle Evans' Honeymoon Is Over

Barbara Evans Teen Mom 2Well, that didn't take long! Nathan Griffith burst onto Teen Mom 2 this season as Jenelle Evans' savior, the first guy with a real J-O-B and a clean rap sheet who actually made Barbara Evans feel like her daughter was making smart choices on the dating front. Consider all that old news.

The new hotness? Bah-brah is so over Nathan Griffith. And I don't think we've seen her this worked up since her infamous "hope ya have fun livin' on the street with your boooooyfriend" speech!

Yup, the honeymoon is over. Jenelle's back on Barbara's bad side thanks to yet another guy.

First we got to see -- or rather hear -- Barbara lose it on a bed-ridden Jenelle. Mama Babs was supposed to be calling to check on Jenelle after surgery to remove her appendix, but it quickly devolved into Jace's grandma ranting about how Nathan is a control freak and her worries that Jenelle is paying his bills. Naturally Jenelle doesn't exactly make things better, telling her other she's "f---ing dumb" before hanging up on her, but then again Barbara doesn't give her a chance to really say much to defend herself ... or Nathan.

But the feces really hit the fan when Barbara swings by chez Jenelle and Nathan. In no time flat Barbara and Nathan are fighting with Babs warning Nathan that fresh-out-of-jail Courtland will run him off the road if he dares drive Jenelle's car, and it will be just like every other boyfriend who has destroyed one of her vehicles. Quick to take offense, Nathan lashes back at Barbara for assuming he's just like all of Jenelle's past boyfriends ... and it is ON like Donkey Kong.

Next thing you know Nathan is yelling at Barbara for letting Jenelle get hooked on heroin because she didn't "keep her on a short enough leash," and Barbara is cursing and screaming at the top of her lungs.

I do have to say this Nathan; it was nice to have someone FINALLY tell Barbara that cursing and screaming at Jenelle is just as harmful to Jace as anything Jenelle has done. Barbara's done a lot stepping in to be the parent to that little guy, but there's a reason she ended up having to do it ... because she wasn't such a stellar parent herself!

By comparison, the rest of tonight's episode was pretty tame. Leah and Corey's daughter had her first day of school, and other than getting a little tired -- what toddler wouldn't -- she had a blast.

Kailyn's getting closer to her wedding, and closer to her due date, and on top of everything else going on in her life, she now has to find a new OB/GYN in her new home state.

As for Chelsea, Adam finally filed the court papers he's been threatening to file for months now. She's now facing court ... and an actual custody agreement.

Who did you think was right? Barbara or Nathan?

Teen Mom 2 season is getting crazy as the episodes come on tv. Jenelle's mom is crazy.

Hunny... HunnybearSG

Never could stand Barbara. I will never forget the scene on 16 & Pregnant where Jenelle, her sons father and Barbara are standing in the driveway arguing over him staying the night and Jenelle looks at her mom and says "I'm already pregnant Mom, nothing worse can happen"!...

Considering how much foul language comes out of Barbara's mouth, it really is no surprise that Jace is walking around dropping F bombs. She can't blame it on Jenelle, she isn't around him enough for him to have learned it from her.

I loved the fact that Nathan stood up for not only Jenelle but himself as well. I don't see him being controlling at all. Maybe he has set down some relationship rules, but honestly, who could blame him? Jenelle can go from 0 to 60 in no time, he will not put up with her shit and she is slowly realizing it. I think they are both idiots for wanting/having a baby though...

He doesn't have a clean rap sheet,,, he just got arrested for his fourth DUI...

A clean rap sheet? Get your facts straight! Nathan has 3 DUIs and NO job. He can't see his daughter without supervision. That tells me he did something bad if he has to be supervised around his own daughter. 3 DIUs is not exactly a clean rap sheet. They are both train wrecks about to collide head on!

Nathan is just one more loser that Jenelle has brought into her life and the lives of her son and mother. Nathan just hides it better. You have to be pretty bad to have supervised visits with your own child and he does have those 4 DUI's. Why is he even driving Jenelle's car? Where is his car and his job? Of course Jenelle is paying for everything for Nathan and herself, but still doesn't support her own son? Jenelle is a mess and so is Nathan and as much as everyone wants to hate on Barbara, at least she has taken good care of Jace, which is better than Jenelle killing the kid when she is tired!!
