WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wednesday means one thing. It's time for WWAY's weekly "Teen Mom 2" wrap up. The MTV show is on it's fourth week of the season and our local celebrity Oak Island teen mom Jenelle Evans is working to get her life in order but is it just for show?

After signing over custody of her son Jace to her mother Barbara, teen mom Jenelle got a job at Slainte Irish Pub in Southport, starting getting information together to begin classes at Cape Fear Community College and even babysat her son while her mom went to work. Her teen mom train seems to be back on track.

But, hold your horses. You didn't think it was going to be that simple did you? Enter Jenelle's new boyfriend, Kieffer Delp.

From what appears to be the beginning of their relationship, Jenelle and Kieffer hit it off, but the importance of being a mom seems to slip out the window as Jenelle neglects her curfew to stay out with her new crush.

When she returns home, her mom won't let her watch her son Jace. As Jenelle sleeps off what Barbara deems "a hangover," Jace spends the day at daycare.

Throughout the episode, Jenelle and her new heart throb pop up all over the Cape Fear, from her visiting the CFCC campus to a quick lunch at Eric's Grille in Southport.

Kieffer finally meets Barbara and Jace near the end of the episode and it seems like everything is right in the world of Jenelle.

But, we already know Kieffer is bad news for the Oak Island teen, proven by the recent charges pending against her when she was discovered with her boyfriend squatting in an abandoned house with marijuana.

We also wanted to know if Jenelle was still working for the pub in Southport, but the restaurant told us Jenelle was fired back in July.

And finally, is Jenelle actually a student this semester at Cape Fear Community College? CFCC told us that Jenelle was a student during the Fall 2010 semester, but she is currently not enrolled in classes this spring.

So, what's this week's lesson on "Teen Mom 2"? Appearances aren't always what they seem.

We've tried to contact Jenelle several times to see if she would speak with us and we're still waiting for a response so, Jenelle, if you see this, WWAY would love to talk to you and get your side of the story.

I have not liked Janelle

I have not liked Janelle from the start but now I feel sorry for her. Jenelle's mother seems to be a BIG problem. The words that come out of Jenelle's mothers mouth and the way she says them in front of Jace while she is feeding him his breakfast is so inappropriate.
Yelling seems to be the way Jenelle was raised and this is how she acts now and we all hate her for it. I believe Jenelle's mother baits her then takes her down like a wounded gazelle.
While I am happy that Jace is getting the responsible care he needs in his grandmother's care; give him 15 years of grandma and he will be like his mother. So sad!!!
Jenelle needs to learn how to communicate effectively and without anger, to be a responsible adult ... lessons her mother evidently did not teach Jenelle or even Jenelle's older sister.
Jenelle I hope you can break free of your past,and get on with your life.

I also wanted to say to all

I also wanted to say to all of these mean people that think that they have the answers to everything, that you need to keep those mean comments to yourself.I bet you are a dead beat mother or would be.How does it feel?Janelle is young and still has so much to learn.She went from being a silly teenager, to being a mom.I was a teen mom at one point myself, so i can relate to her.Yes there is a lot of yelling going on and no that baby doesn't need to be around it, and no to Janelle yelling at her mom the way she did/does, but thats not our call to make.We are here to show support, and understand in our own way what we think without being hateful.She could do better, but she knows that.I have 10 years on her, but she doesn't think like i do.If only i knew then what i know now.Ha ha.How many people say that a day?! Don't listen to all those people that want to be mean, and realize yourself what you need to do.You will be a young woman for many years to come and you will have plenty of time to be young but you know what comes first..All you people need to back off and let her learn on her own and not bash her for making mistakes..I know for a fact none of you people are perfect either...

Nice.

You bet every one out there is a dead beat mom or would be, just like janelle? Guess what? Majority knows the responsibility of sex before marriage, and if mistakes, or blessings happen; the majority would GROW UP and deal with it like an ADULT! Yes, I agree she has a lot to learn, but if she cared about her son, the first guy to walk into the picture wouldn't take her away from what should be her no. 1 priority. I am from the area and honestly it is the biggest embarrassment to have her on television flaunting her ignorance.

I just wanted to say to

I just wanted to say to Janelle, that I was 17 when i got pregnant with my first child, and was 18 when I had her. She is now 9 yrs.old.I also have a 7 yr. old.I am 28 yrs.I have been with the father of BOTH of my girls for 10 1/2 yrs.I know it didn't work out with you and your man you did have, but you know that little boy of yours needs you.I know what its like to think that you can't raise a child, and you don't know what to do, and wanting to do your own thing, but you know that you have to do what's best for you and Jase.You need get yourself back in college and make something of your life before it's too late.One thing that really bothered me was seeing how you talked to your mother.She wants whats best for you and Jase.My mouth dropped when i saw those shows where you talked to her like that.She wants to take care of your child because she doesn't want him to have to suffer for your short commings.You have got to know that i am right.That little boy needs his mother to raise him, and not his grandmother.She raised her child.Don't make that little boy suffer through all of this.Go back to school,work at the same time, and do the things that young mothers are supposed to do.Young mothers do it all the time.You can do this.I live in Brunswick county, and just wish i could sit down with you and really show you, and tell you some things that i think would help.I want to try.You are a very pretty girl, but your looks won't get you through life.That new guy may not be there forever, but your son will be..If all of this gets posted and you read this Janelle, feel free to try and respond if possible, and if you would want to..God bless, and make good decisions..Crystal

Is there any chance....

....we can match up Jenelle and Dwayne Moore on a blind date, to end the baby's (and ours) future misery?

Just as expected

Anybody really surprised she dropped out of school, has trouble with the law, isn't married to the father of her child? She might not be all she's cracked up to be but she most certainly is a crack ho.

Janelle

People really need to back off of her. I live in the same town as her and Have met and talked with her quite a few times. Its easy to make someone look horrible when every aspect of her life is exploited on national television. Granted there are some things she needs to work on but It is hard being a parent. I have no children of my own but I am supporting my 2 younger brothers because our parents are both in jail. The difference is age and experience. Forget television and news and take care of your children. I am 25 years old and I could not imagine having a child at 16...I work full time go to college full time and support my two brothers. All janelle needs is good influences and good friends. At her age I was doing the same stuff. I think deep down Janelle is a good person and she needs to be pushed and given a chance to really be a mom. With that said I know only she can make the choice to change, hopefully she does that. Until you have lived a mile in someone elses shoes...Dont judge them because it is not your place.

No one is perfect....

I totally agree.I just wish i could meet her, and sit and talk with her, b/c I do have children, and it is hard sometimes, but it can be done with support, and positive ppl.I live in Brunswick County, and I do want the opportunity to some how meet her, and give her some of my wisdom...I wish her all the best..

ummm, no

If she didn't want the negative publicity she should not have agreed to have her life displayed on TV. I've never seen they show nor care to. But you can't argue with simple facts: She is a criminal, she is a drop-out and is way too immature to be a parent. Because of the decisions I made I will never "live a mile in someone elses shoes." She should have thought about all this before she signed up for the show.

WWAY please stop calling

WWAY please stop calling this girl a celebrity, she is not a celeb, she is a deadbeat mother that MTV glorifies, she is a disgrace and deserves her child to be taken away, There are so many people out there that would love to have a child to love and care for but cant and this girl has one and just thinks its a joke

Why is her boy friend named

Why is her boy friend named after a yogurt hybrid?

This sort of soap opera

This sort of soap opera thing really does not stir my interest very much. I did read this story simply because the girl is local and thought I would catch up on her antics a bit. If she is a teen, how is she working in a pub that serves alcohol, as I understand that is what pubs do?

just responding to your

just responding to your post. She is 18 now. she can be a waitress and serve alcohol, she just cant poor anything. but I agree with everyone else, she is a dead beat mom, that can't take care of her son or even keep a job, and is no celebrity!

yeah they picked a real

yeah they picked a real winner to represent Brunswick County. Thanks.

She is the perfect example

She is the perfect example of trailer trash, she should either give the baby up to the grandmother or let a loving family adopt. But, oh wait, she can't quit partying or get off her back long enough to get her priorities straight. MTV good job on picking this one...

It seems to me that the best

It seems to me that the best thing that could have happened for that baby would have been to put him up for adoption. That poor child is growing up around people constantly yelling, and from what I can see barely paying attention to him. He is not growing up in a loving, caring environment and he is going to learn to do the exact same thing his Mother and Grandmother are doing. There are so many couples out there who want children more than anything and would give him a great loving home.

The only person who loses in this whole situation is the baby. Jenelle needs to grow up now and her mother needs to stop enabling her and baiting her at the same time. I do not see this ending in a good way at all and my heart bleeds for the baby.

I agree up to a point... I

I agree up to a point... I believe the grandmother is giving the child love and care and shows great warmth towards him. I believe he does have a loving home and that she could raise him well, however I do believe that her approach and choice of communication with her daughter lacks. The grandmother has extreme anger and frustration with her daughter for good reason. The gradmother needs to learn some calming skills and self control of words when she is speaking to her daughter and more so when the child is there. If anything she should seek counseling for herself to learn how to re-direct her anger, and slowly bring in the mom for family therapy - I do not believe the mom should live with the grandmother as the teen is a trigger for the grandmother to be upset. The teen mom needs to learn life skills and re-think her friends and self actions before she can truly make any positive steps. I do agree the child should is what it's all about and i feel for him.

I AGREE W/ YOU..I DNT THINK

I AGREE W/ YOU..I DNT THINK THAT HER NOR HER MOTHER SHOULD HAVE THE BABY CUZ ALL SHE WORRIES ABOUT IS PARTYING & BOYS & ALL HER MOTHER CARES ABOUT IS PROVING HER WRONG AND CONTROLLING HER, SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE THE POOR LIL MAN? I WAS 16 & HAD MY 1ST SON & WAS A D@MN GOOD MOTHER B/C I CHOSE TO HAVE THE BABY THEREFORE I THEN KNEW MY JOB WAS 2 BE A PARENT..IM NOW 22 WITH 2 BOYS & ANOTHER ON THE WAY & I COULDNT IMAGE HAVING PARENTING SKILLS LIKE THAT! YEAH GOOD JOB MTV 4 PICKIN HER 2 REPRESENT HER 4 BRUNSWICK COUNTY LOL.. I HOPE THAT BABY GETS PLACED IN A GOOD HOME WITH CARING PARENTS THAT PUT HIM 1ST
