Look who's back in the news again... thanks to her constant tweets that swing from manic highs and lows and every level in between! Now she's filed assault charges against her husband.

Looks like this girl has decided to live her entire life out on the social media stage! Some could and do argue that MTV was the catalyst and ok, I can agree with that to some extent. But I think she's got an addictive personality, craves attention and is darn well going to get it in some form... and right now, that seems to be exposing every minute dramatic detail of her life via Twitter and Face Book. And of course, she's going to emphasis that none of this drama is her fault...she's so misunderstood/pressured/stressed/ ... insert any other word of the day that places the blame elsewhere!

Who does crap like that? And at what point do we stop feeling sorry for her being "victimized" by a reality show and start expecting her take some sort of responsibility for her current choices?

Ok, rant over! She just annoys the heck outta me, can you tell?

Personally, I feel that Jenelle would have these problems even if she wasn't on Teen Mom 2.  She's obviously been troubled for a long time and has some deep issues.  I'm sure that the money she had made from being a reality TV star has made it easier for her to afford drugs, but I think she would be into drugs regardless.  She just doesn't have good judgement and she's so immature.  I know that a lot of teens go through these issues, but usually, they grow up and start to make better choices.  I don't think Jenelle ever will.  I really think that she just doesn't care.  I know that she claims she loves her son and wants to take over custody of him, but she's really not taking any steps to do so.

Well said! She lives strictly "in the moment" AND she doesn't want to put any effort into anything. She wants to someone validate her self-pity, solve issues to satisfy her wants and needs and pat her shoulder and tell her the rest of the world is screwed up. All that's going to do is keep her going in this crazy cycle.

I agree completely, canijusteatcandy.  She blames everyone else for her problems and doesn't take any responsibility.  I don't think I've once heard her admit on the show that anything is her fault.

She makes us younger generation look so bad! I think if we all ignore her she'll just go away.
