"Teen Mom 2" focuses on Oak Island family

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) - Tuesday night marked the season premier of MTV's newest spin off, "Teen Mom 2." The show focuses on four teenage mothers from across the county, all dealing with different struggles as they try to manage their teen agenda and a new baby. The four girls come from MTV's second season of "16 and Pregnant" - a documentary type show that follows teenage girls as they deal with pregnancy.

One of the new teen moms is Jenelle Evans who's from Oak Island. On "16 and Pregnant" Jenelle and her mom, Barbra, had their share of drama. Before her baby, Jace, was even born, Jenelle was defiant of every instruction her mom gave her, and for our viewing pleasure, not much has changed. Although Jenelle has graduated from high school, she still is stuck in her party girl ways, leaving her mother to take care of her nine-month-old baby.

Right away, the interaction between the family is explosive, and only continues to get worse throughout the show. The episode ends with Barbara serving Jenelle with custody papers. That didn't sit well with the nineteen-year-old and she lets the world know.

Teen momma drama may make for a highly rated show for MTV, but like we've seen before, the footage can stand up in a court of law, too. Amber Portwood, of the original "Teen Mom" fame, was jailed for felony domestic battery and child neglect charges after an episode of the show hit airwaves last year.

From what viewers saw last night on "Teen Mom 2" and considering the fact that Jenelle is already in some trouble with the law, could Jenelle be the next "Teen Mom" train wreck? We'll see next Tuesday.

What.......A...........LOSER

Wait, where is the story of her and her boyfriend being arested for drugs just the other day?
I too agree, good argument for abortion. She should be sterilized.

I seriously cant believe that you somehow think you are qualified to say that someone should be sterilized. Everyone in this country makes such a big deal about teen pregnancy and wants to shun the youth in America for their unwise decisions. Don't you think that there are other things that could have changed to prevent these girls from teen pregnancy?
Sure, her and her boyfriend got arrested for drugs, she is human. Sometimes when we are not guided in the best of ways or something is affecting us and causes us to react negatively because we do not understand the way we are feeling then we rebel. Honestly I think it is a blessing that she is young because she has the opportunity to correct things before her life is completely out of control.
Clearly, teen pregnancy is an issue, sure ill agree. But for someone who clearly has no right to be casting stones, should decide that they have the right to say someone should be punished for life because of a few bad decisions. The issue now should be, what can she take from her mistakes and how can she learn from them and what can she do to better her life for her and her son. If society took the time to teach the youth in America the right way to handle a situation then maybe we would have some hope...............

Thats your excuse? "She's human"? Oh please! That trailer park trash had a baby and then went out and got popped for drugs and you say "she's human"? People like you crack me up. I guess if I went over to your house and stole all your belongings you'd say that I was "human" huh. Yea well the cops are probably saying "she's guilty". Maybe a lil jail time will make her grow up.

I pray that You and Everyone in your family is sterilized. The only thing worse than irresponsible children getting pregnant and relying on others/government to help raise their illigitmate kid, are those who apoligize and make excuses for them.

WAKE UP!! This is the future generation of drug addicts and criminals. Unwanted pregnancy and child abuse are the Root of 90% of all societys problems.

I agree with all these comments, but one thing no one pays attention to is the cost of all this trash breeding...ALL of these kids and parents go on welfare automatically. We are now into the 4th generation of the "you owe me" crowd...Think about all this garbage when you get your paycheck and see the deductions...YOU ARE PAYING for this trash...think country wide at tens of thousands of breeders milking the system...we are circling the drain fellow americans...

I HOPE THAT HER MOM DOES GET THE BABY. THAT WAY SHE WILL HAVE TO REALLY STRAIGHTEN UP TO GET IT BACK. THAT IS IF SHE REALLY WANTS IT. WITH HER BEHAVIOR AND TROUBLE WITH THE LAW, SHE COULD VERY WELL LOSE IT TO FOSTER CARE. THEN IT WOULD REALLY BE HARD FOR HER TO GET IT BACK. KIDS ARE GOING TO WATCH THIS SHOW AND IF SHE LOSES THE BABY IT COULD BE A GOOD LESSON TO NOT HAVE SEX AND LEARN WHAT LIFE IS REALLY LIKE WITH A BABY.

who ever posted this is being a hipacrit yeah the girl maybe a party girl.but sometimes losing a baby makes it worst and harder to work threw her proablems to get jace back.i mean her mom doesnt help the situation.i mean for god sake at least shes leaving the baby with somebody responsible and not just dumping him off with some stranger or just leaving him some where and she did come back ever day she went out no matter how early the next day or how late she still came back and thats what matters....some teen moms and mothers period are worse....and the whole think twice before haveing sex is a bunch of bull crap you know your own consquence when you have sex.and just because your a teen mom and its hard doesnt mean your goanna be perfect and not make mistakes i mean dame there 30yrs old women who ditch there kids to party there ass off all the time....

Really, she should grow up! Just because your a teen mom doesn't mean that you can't be responsible for your actions. My mother always told me if you play, you pay...Maybe her mother should make her be a mother instead of saying oh, Jenelle is sleeping..I am making the bottle Again! Get her lazy ass up and make her make the bottle and take the kid to daycare...I don't care what time she got home or where she was! As for the child that wrote the above post titled "Jenelle", you need to learn how to spell, finish high school or go back and get your GED and then consult us all again in a few years when you are an adult...Children should be seen and not heard!!!

shutup and grow up.

For once I agree with all the comments posted here. HOORAY

And I thought the entire population had lost its mind.

In no way should this show be watched by anyone, much less young adults. Take this garbage off the air.

Truth

Excellent argument for abortion.

This girl is a reflection of how she was raised. If you are raised without rules and guidelines, allowed to do what ever you want without consequence. Then you become a spoiled rotten, nasty little b*t*h. that's it in a nutshell. And I mean nut!!!!
Now this is not to say a properly raised child won't misbehave, just the obvious thing here is this girl never was disciplined!!!
To say she is a "mom" is a far stretch of the word, yeah she gave birth to a child, but any animal can do that!!!!

Watching this trash-the show and the people on it-only encourages horrible behavior! These girls are going to be our kids' role models. Turn it off!

Being a doormat has always been a voluntary position, Grandma!

THE ENTIRE THING IS ABSURD IM SO SICK OF HER SAYING IM A TEENAGER.. BLAH BLAH BLAH WELL YEA YOU ARE BUT YOU ARE A MOTHER FIRST AND A TEEN SECOND.. I COULDNT BELIEVE HOW CRAZY IT SOUNDED TO ME WHEN HER FRIEND ASKED IF SHE SAW HER SON OR MISSED HIM OR WHAT EVER SHE ASKED AND HER REPLY WAS YES I PICKED HIM UP FROM DAYCARE (WHICH HER MOM TOOK HIM TO SO SHE COULD SLEEP ALL DAY PATHETIC) AND FEED HIM AND GAVE HIM A BATH AND LAYED HIM DOWN TO GO TO BED.. UGH THAT IS NOT BEING APARENT ITS BEING A BABYSITTER AT BEST MAYBE!!! I SINCERLY DONT UNDERSTAND NOT HOW SHE CAN GO OUT AND PARTY ALL THE TIME BUT HOW SHE COULD WANT TOO.. THERE IS NOT MATERNAL INSTINT THERE WHAT SO EVER AND I FEEL BADLY FOR THE GRANDMOTHER BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN PUT INTO A ROUGH SITUATION SHE CANT CONTROL. IF SHE DIDNT FILE FOR CUSTODY AND JUST KICKED HER OUT THEN THATS PUTTING HER GRANDSON IN DANGER SO WHAT WAS SHE SUPPOSED TO DO??? SUCH A SAD STOREY ALL THE WAY AROUND AND I HOPE IT WORKS OUT IN THE END!!

What's she gonna do? Just let some teen party queen mess up her grandbaby's life? I bet most of us would do the same thing - it's a baby, you can't just turn ur back on it!!! Mebbe having custody of the baby is NOT being the doormat b/c at least u have that kid's best interest at heart!

She should TELL that POS daughter that SHE will stay home and care for her own baby.

If she's too weak to pull that off, then I'd suggest she make a pitch to DSS that the baby be taken away from the POS mother and placed in foster care.

If she doesn't want to see the baby placed in foster care, then she should attempt get get permanent legal custody and file with DSS and the DA to get child support from BOTH POS parents. If they can't pay child support, than after a few years she should petition the court for adoption and keep BOTH POS parents from even visiting the child.

Whatever course of action she chooses, she needs to deliver the old "Go, and never darken my doorstep again" speech to her daughter. Oh, sorry - I meant POS daughter. Far too many people let their adult children ruin their lives.

Write 'em off, like a bad debt.

Maybe I missed it in reading the post; what the heck does POS mean ? I may want to use it some day. You usually come up with some good ones.

....piece of.......(you can figure out the rest).

Who really cares about this worthless teen...
