‘Teen Mom 2′ Recap: Jenelle’s Mom Claims That Jace, 4, Is Bi-Polar

Wed, September 3, 2014 11:00pm EST by 21 Comments

On the explosive Sept. 3 episode of ‘Teen Mom 2,’ Jenelle gets into a huge fight with her mom, Barbara, over Jace’s recent bad behavior. When Barbara reveals that she thinks he is bi-polar, Jenelle completely loses it and leaves with her son. Yikes.

Jenelle Evans, 22, is having a hard time watching her first son, Jace, 4, struggle while living with his grandmother, Barbara Evans. On this all-new episode, things finally come to a head when Jenelle and her mom get into a heated argument over her son’s behavior. When the screaming match between them escalates to the place of no return, Barbara kicks Jenelle and Jace out of the house. Is this the beginning of Jenelle getting custody of her son back?

Jenelle & Barbara Fight Over Jace Potentially Being Bi-Polar

This week’s episode begins with something very important: Nathan and Barbara having a one-on-one about their big blowout. As Nathan says, repeatedly, they are both “adults,” so it’s nice to see that they can smooth things out so quickly. They both just want the best for Jenelle and her boys, so they should learn to work together rather than against each other.

Once things have calmed down with everyone, Jenelle decides that she and Barbara should spend some time together. They leave Jace and his cousin, Gabrielle, with Nathan for the day and then decide to spend an entire day at the spa. Not only do they get facials and massages, they also get manicures and pedicures.

While they are together, Barbara discusses Jace’s bad behavior which leads Jenelle to finally mentioning that she hopes after Kaiser is born she can have custody of Jace again. Barbara seems open to the idea and even mentions that Jenelle has seriously turned her life around, but she also expresses concern about Jenelle’s fights with Nathan. Can’t blame her for that since Nathan and Jenelle seem to be bumping heads, even with their baby just a few weeks away from arriving.

Later in the episode, Jenelle comes over to pick up Jace for the weekend and Barbara is completely overwhelmed by his bad behavior. When Jenelle and Barbara get into a fight over Jace’s behavior, Barbara reveals that she thinks Jace is bi-polar. Interestingly enough, she also accuses Jenelle of being bi-polar. Jenelle denies it and tells Barbara to call her doctor, but that just makes things worse.

The explosive fight results in Barbara telling Jenelle to take Jace and get out of her house. I can’t help but wonder if Jace will be back in Jenelle’s custody by the end of this season.

Throughout all of this, Jenelle gets some REALLY good news. Her divorce from Courtland Rogers is official, and she now has her legal name back. Congrats, Jenelle!

Leah Takes Corey To Court For Child Support & Health Insurance Rights

As if the drama between Jenelle and her mom wasn’t enough, Leah surprises everyone when she decides to take legal action against her ex, Corey Simms, to get the rights to controlling their health insurance. Interestingly enough, Leah also demands more child support.

Corey is obviously not happy about this, but it is no secret that Leah and her husband, Jeremy Calvert, have been really unhappy with Corey controlling Ali’s health insurance. She still doesn’t have the wheelchair she needs to get around, and Corey has not been keeping on top of the health insurance to make sure it is in the process of being approved.

However, Jeremy is really happy that Leah finally took Corey back to court to work on their child support.

Kailyn’s Husband Finally Comes Home After Being Away For A Month

In much happier news, Javi Marroquin finally returns home to his wife, Kailyn, and the boys, Isaac, 4, and Lincoln.

Just before leaving the house to pick up Javi, Kailyn deals with the both of the boys having their own major breakdowns at the very same time. Once things calm down Kailyn realizes she survived it without losing her cool, and she’s pretty proud of herself. You go, Kail! Thankfully, now that Javi is back she will have an extra hand or two helping her out when the boys get all crazy like that.

When Kailyn picks up Javi at the airport both boys are fast asleep in the backseat, but they wake up on the ride home. When Isaac wakes up the first thing he does is say, “Javi, I made you a sign!” Then he tells Javi that he and Lincoln love him, which is really, really sweet. They have such an amazing relationship!

Chelsea Takes A Vacation While Adam Introduces Aubree To His New Girl

There is still a lot of animosity between Chelsea and her ex, Adam Lind, but when he takes their daughter, Aubree, for the weekend she happily plans some quality time with her friends.

During her weekend with her daddy, Aubree gets to spend time with her baby sister, Paislee, and Adam’s new girlfriend. Yes, that’s right, he kicked Paislee’s mom, Taylor Halbur, to the curb and has a new blonde girl in tow.

The new girl seems to do really well with the girls, but what’s more important is that Adam is finally spending some quality time with his daughters instead of getting in trouble again. Even Adam’s friends are happy to see him bonding with his two girls when they all take a group trip to the zoo.

Meanwhile, Chelsea and her friends enjoy their weekend at the Houska family cabin. While fishing, they even talk about their “dream” boyfriends. That’s when Chelsea admits she isn’t sure she’s ready to give up spending time with Aubree just to date someone. Even though that makes her a really good mom, it might be nice for Chelsea to have a new man in her life to worry about.

It is sad to see the chaos that Jace Evans is constantly surrounded by. Jenelle Evans is a poor role model and even worse mother. Her parental rights need to be terminated and the state needs to step in and take custody of Jace. Barbara was a good temporary choice for Jace to be with, however as Jace gets older, she seems to be struggling with him. Let the state place him with a temporary family or find another resolution. Jenelle is not a suitable mother. She has bipolar disorder and choses to ignore it. She can barely take care of herself sometimes. Please get that kid out of there so he can have a chance at a normal life!

I think it’s time for Janelle to have custody of her son Jace. Maybe part of his bad behavior is not being with his mother full time and on top of that he has had no father figure for the majority of his life. Leah was right to take Corey to court. Get serious about your child’s health dude! How many doctors have to say she needs a wheelchair before it sinks in?!

For God’s sake, someone need to remove Jace from the Jenelle & Barb runaway crazy train before that poor child, at best ends up an inmate or at worst a serial killer. It is irresponsible and criminal that MTV can even turn this dysfunction into a tv show! Abuse for viewing pleasure—shameful!

Just saw episode tonight…OMG they should take Jace away from that crazy lady!! I was happy for him when grandma originally got custody but now I’m just beyond sad for the poor kid. Why can’t either one of them just give him a HUG for Gods sake???!!! It’s called comforting a child…I sincerely hope that it’s just editing making it look worse for ratings. Would Dr Drew (and crew) really let a 4 year-old stay living with Janelle or Barbara if it was really as toxic as it seems? I thought doctors had to report abuse etc..

You are saying every single thing i was thinking last night after watching the show. I could barely sleep thinking about that poor boy and just to calm myself i said it must just be the editing and they are only using snippets of the show and are showing the worst parts. Even so when Jace starting singing his “rainbow” song I lost it..that poor boy is trying to calm himself and is using his imagination to make everything better. His mom only cares about herself and Nathan..she should just be happy she has time with her son but instead she is so wrapped up in herself she can’t see Jace is getting lost. Grandma is a nut and i see how Jenelle ended up that way she did.
Dr. Drew BETTER NOT let this slip through on the next reunion show or he has lost all credibility with me that is for sure!

Barbara trying to say a 4 year old she is raising tells one what when she declares he is bi-polar? Barbara is deflecting her role of behavior and playing blame games.
And she is the one running around screaming her head off and has been doing it since this child was born–when she isn’t yelling at him she is yelling at Janelle.

Barbara needs medication or stop caring for little ones who needs good loving home and care.
Unless Nathan is right about her drinking all the time–every night –nipping the bottle too many years causes bi-polar in women especially. Could be Barbara needs the medication and no one else. She should never be yelling like she always has in front of those children –its why janelle could not live there to begin with.

Where is Leah’s head–is she serious they agreed on $200 a month for the twins and Corey seldom pays it? And why has he not filed for his insurance to get that child her wheelchair. Another dead beat dad who wants no responsibility in life for what he does. Is this where his denial for the child’s illness comes into play that he is not filing with his insurance and did not follow through because he does not want to pay the percentage of what he will have to pay for it.

Corey sitting there telling his girlfriend he is not a dead beat dad but he does not agree with the way the courts are set up and they take money for child support by what you make –if you make more then you pay more–lol how dumb is dumb. Leah should give him the twins for a year and let him care for them and support them and she can pay him $200 a month sometimes like he sometimes does and refuses. His girlfriend better run or plan on supporting him and herself and any children she has because all he wants is a fancy big truck and he is happy and anything else can be done without.

I cannot believe my ears and I must be wrong that they have nothing set down by the courts and this childcare is merely agreement between them. He should be in jail for not paying child support. It should automatically be taken out of his paycheck by the company he works for.

Pete2211 First of all get your facts straight! Corey did file for his insurance to get the wheelchair and it was denied because they needed more paperwork and a video of Ali running the wheelchair. Second that is not Coreys girlfriend, she is his WIFE. Third, Leah is asking for Corey to pay $800 for each child and carry the health insurance on both of them. Fourth, they did go to court and the courts decided on joint custody. Fifth, Leah has gone through several new cars, and fancy big trucks, has bought a new home, spent at least $3,000 on Mary Kay makeup, bought a $3,000 dryer and Horses all this season. Six, Corey and his WIFE are not planning on having any kids real soon because they can’t afford them! Seventh, Corey’s WIFE can support herself because she has a JOB and doesn’t rely on everyone else to pay for whatever she wants!!!!.

Corey should have thought about what he could afford before he started making children. It does not matter what Leah ask for or what Corey says he will pay–the court will tell them both what is going to be paid. So stop blaming the women only cause your facts you claim to say is not what Corey himself had to say on tv and he sure said he would go to court and pay whatever the court said but he does not believe in how the court system is set up that you pay by what you earn–no kidding –no on can be that dumb –the court is not going to take the same amount from a person making $100,000 and a person making $40,000. So his wife says to Corey “then you are willing to pay what the court sets up and move on” and he said yes. So from that discussion Corey and Leah had no court appointed nothing. That should have been done first thing when they divorced. Corey trying to be slick here? Also he said on national tv he heard nothing from the insurance company and nothing about it being denied.

You sound like you take all this so personally and sound very immature. But understand nothing a women may or may not earn does not exonerate the fathers financial responsibility to his child or children. Also when you have joint custody you do not pay child support.

I raised my children after my divorce and I know it is not easy so do not act like raising children is an easy thing to do.

Corey is the one who told Leah that his insurance had denied the wheelchair because they needed more information! Where he is telling Leah he hasn’t heard anything back is after they sent in the video of Ali driving the wheelchair. You sound immature that you do not know what the previous episodes have been. You also need to read up on joint custody with the father having to pay child support!!

Corey should be on the phone with his insurance company every single day. If he can’t because he is working, his wife should be doing so. If she can’t because she is working, obviously, Leah should be able to.

Yup! Leah needs her head examined is she allowed $200/month in support. Corey should be ashamed of himself. Also, no way in hell I’d let him stay in charge of the medical decisions, I used to like him but he is turning into a tool who doesn’t live in the real world.

I think Corey is living in the REAL world more than Leah is. What kind of GREAT insurance does Leah have and who is paying the premiums.?

Barbara is bi-polar or an alcoholic. She reminds me of a bar fly. All she does is yell and makes the kid act up cause he is nervous. She cared for him and she failed again. Now she has her other daughters child she is caring for. Bad news for these kids. She treats Janelle the same way. And we wonder why kids grow up to do the things they do.

Jenelle is psycho because of Barbara. Both are unfit to parent Jace. In the lesser of two evils (and I really do mean EVILS), it’s better for Jace to stay with the older, slightly more stable alcoholic and crazy Barbara than going to the very unstable, man hopping, drug abusing, heavy drinking/smoking/drugging Jenelle and her man of the moment. No one ever considers the impact of uprooting Jace after 5 years with Babs. Jenelle doesn’t “own” Jace and her “rights” to him are superceded by his need for some stability, etc. Barbara has a *slight* edge on jenelle insofar as she’s older, she’s worked her whole life and has never abandoned her children (she’s also unfit but so is jenelle).

I think Janelle should have the chance to have Jace as she does not yell at him like Barbara does. Barbara is bad news and needs to leave others kids alone . I cannot believe that Barbara has ruined Jace like she has and blames someone else when no one was caring for him but her and the ole great toothless one. Janelle needs to get her act together and take care of Jace. He wants to be with her anyway and he should be with his mother not big mouth dyfunctional toxic mom.
