Jenelle Evans and her mother Barbara, who has temporary custody of her son Jace, chatted with Dr. Drew in last night’s Teen Mom 2 Finale Special. The mother-daughter relationship has been tense on the show and was the same way in the finale special. At one point, Barbara said Jenelle was not “lovable!”
“Barbara, the last time we were together I asked you to tell her a couple of positive things about who she is and what you admire about her. I want to try that again.” Dr. Drew said in the MTV special. “Can we try that again? Three things you love and admire about Jenelle.”
“And it can’t be what you said last time,” Jenelle added.
“Yea, something new,” Dr. Drew agreed. “Last time you said she was intelligent and beautiful.”
Barbara came up with strong and ambitious, but got stuck on number three again.
“Is she lovable?” Dr. Drew asked.
“No,” Barbara said.
“She’s not lovable. That’s pretty heavy,” Dr. Drew said. “What does she need to do to be lovable?
“She needs to be a kinder person,” Barbara said. “Everything is just about Jenelle.”
Do you think Barbara was too hard on her daughter?
