Teen Mom Jenelle Evans is like a parody of herself by now and it never seems to end. There is no easy way of saying this, so I am just going to come out and say it: she is back with Kieffer Delp.
In case you have forgotten, Delp is the same guy who got her into legal trouble, went to jail for assaulting her, and leaked photos of her nude out publicly. Oh and also, he is a homeless druggie. In other words, he wasn't even a good boyfriend on his best day. And now she is back with him?
This isn't unique to Jenelle, though she is the worst offender. These teen moms just keep forgiving unforgivable behavior. Chelsea Houska, anyone?
Look, it's one thing to be in love and forgive a husband for a missed birthday or two. It's another thing to forgive him for beating you and posting nude photos of you online for personal gain. Come ON Jenelle! Don't be such a pathetic door mat.
Here's an idea: rather than bouncing from Kieffer to Gary Head (her former fiance) and back again, why not just be single for a bit? Why not just relax, play the field, and be alone? Is that really too much to ask?
When a girl becomes pregnant at 16 or 17, it's clear that she has problems. Most girls know how to use birth control and are smart enough to either do so or abstain from sex. So obviously we are getting a snapshot of women with a lot of self-esteem issues anyway from the show.
Clearly Jenelle can't be alone and it's not good for anyone. The fact is, a woman who can't be content to be by herself is never going to be in a healthy relationship. Those take time and self-esteem. They need to be built in a healthy way.
Jenelle needs to know herself better before she can be in a good relationship. She isn't allowing herself that kind of time, though. She constantly jumps like a pinball and it shows.
Will she ever get it together? Maybe. But not while she is with a series of extreme loser men.
Do you think Jenelle should be single?
