In her long-held series of poor decision making, Jenelle follows her pattern to a tee! Not only has she begun a new relationship just weeks after her rumored pregnancy and abortion (father UNKNOWN out of three potentials, if you can believe that shocker), not only is she proclaiming him to be her soulmate after less than a month, but they’re moving in together – in a house they BOUGHT. Yes, after less than a month of knowing each other (let’s get real, they haven’t “been talking” for three months, like that makes any difference), Jenelle and Nathan purchased a home together, and yes, they are both on the deed. (Tell me, what’s going to happen to this home if Jenelle goes to prison, OD’s, or gets back on heroin? Does she not think of securing Jace’s financial future too?!)
Just for fun, let’s play that this might be a good idea. After all, Nathan was touted Jenelle to be squeaky clean, with multiple jobs and a healthy athletic lifestyle he’s encouraging her to take on. But as soon as she posted a picture of him (because her entire life has to be documented on social media!), it quickly came out that he had a live-in girlfriend when they first went out. Fans soon uncovered more – Craigslist ads showing off his bulked up body, advertising himself for anonymous and “kinky” sex. Unsurprisingly but somewhat bizzarely, the online sex history of Nathan includes posing for gay erotica, and it quickly was speculated that he was just another famewhore seeking to become “alnost fanous” through MTV.
Considering that it’s been confirmed that Nathan is filming with Jenelle for season five of Teen Mom 2, he just might have the dream fulfilled that Courtland missed out on (heroin can be a real drag, yo). And today, Wet Paint has reported that Nathan has a two-year-old daughter, not to be confused with the daughter of his girlfriend who he was raising as well (and to whom he no longer is a father figure). At least he has walking out on an innocent child in common with Jenelle, because what the hell else would these two share?
So, Nathan has two kids who are in his life, but who knows how often, and one of whom he apparently just walked out on to be with Jenelle (?); the mother of that child in all likelihood was still with him when he started this impeding disaster of a relationship; he recently was soliciting kinky sex from strangers on Craigslist; he’s speculated to be gay, looking for publicity, or even an MTV plant to clean up Jenelle’s image; and this has all come out in the month that it took for him and Jenelle to fall in love. Tell me, WHAT ABOUT THIS SITUATION MAKES IT A GOOD IDEA FOR THEM TO ENTER INTO A HUGE FINANCIAL COMMITMENT? Not to mention, yesterday All the Teen Moms reported that Nathan was sexting with his most recent ex – oh yeah, this guy’s a real winner.
Of course, Jenelle lives a life far beyond what any typical person would consider reasonable. The past two days she spent warring with other moms on twitter, and she spends all her time reading about her own TV show to use her costars’ lives to profit on Sulia. And today she’s been posting screenshots to “prove” that Nathan isn’t an MTV plant or on the DL (my favorite part about that “explanation” is how he says he couldn’t be gay because he was in the Marines – ha!).
I was hoping that the purchase of her home had been brokered by MTV in lieu of paying her cash for season five, but I have a hard time believing Nathan would have been put on the deed if they’d been involved. It’s just sad that this chick doesn’t even raise her son (babysitting and weekend visits do not a parent make), and she’s working so hard on starting her life with a guy she barely knows. Everyone’s on their best behavior in the first three months of any relationship, romantic or friendly, and we all know there’s going to be some major drama before too long, especially since the way they got together is fishy as hell.
And then, there’s this…
Sadly, Jenelle thinks she’s on the right track, and maybe she’s improving some aspects of her life – she plans to reenroll in school, and may not be using hard drugs anymore. I don’t care about young parents drinking or smoking weed sometimes, even daily if they are fulfilling all other responsibilities. But Jenelle has far too much time on her hands that she wastes online, going to restaurants or movies, playing with her friends, or just immersing herself in drama – and this is the perfect time for her to be rebuilding her relationship with Jace (remember him?). The time isn’t after she has everything done to start being a parent, because Jenelle, your education is just the beginning of your adult life, and things don’t get easier once you’re working. If she doesn’t start making Jace a priority soon and making her home become HIS home, and not sharing it with the man of the week, then I think Barbara is going to have custody of him until he is grown.
