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.
