TMZ reports that Jenelle Evans and David Eason are really trying it. They recently had their children taken from them by the government and put into the care of other people deemed qualified. The children weren’t taken because of the general lack of responsibility these two have to raise any living thing; it was because David viciously killed Jenelle’s dog Nugget in front of the kids and Child Protective Services was like: “Uh… you can’t… you can’t do that.”
Jenelle and David have been trying to get the kids back and have done things like go to therapy to show they’re capable of raising them. Which is definitely working because David confronted Jenelle’s ex outside of court like a few days after saying yes to therapy. I guess because they know no sane person will legally give them children, they need to come at the issue from another angle; and now they are attacking the ability of Jenelle’s mother, Barbara Evans, to take care of the kids after she was appointed their guardian.
TMZ got a hold of two 911 calls, one is from David and the other is from Jenelle. David dialed 911 to tell them his 2-year-old daughter was locked in a bedroom. Apparently Barbara wanted to take a shower and so she locked Ensley in a room, I’m assuming to stop her from screwing around unsupervised. These children have been raised by Jenelle Evans and David Eason for years: I can’t imagine what it’s like trying to actually parent them–so I’m not going to judge Barbara. Also, I’ve been locked in a room before where the lock stuck and listen: I didn’t die. Ensley was fine. “Freaking out” is not a reason to call the fucking police. Jace, Jenelle’s son, called David and told him about the locked door.
The police went to Barbara’s and I’m assuming nothing happened there because it’s not a crime to lock a child in a room for a few minutes; if it was every baby boomer and both their parents need to be arrested and jailed immediately. Let’s round ’em up! A source tells TMZ that Barbara was eventually able to get Ensley out of the room on her own, because: Duh.
Then Jenelle called the police to do a welfare check on the kids because she said she heard screaming in the background of a phone call with Barbara and that Barbara said the kids were hitting each other. Like, am I supposed to believe that when the kids are around Jenelle and David they aren’t screaming and fighting? Listen, I don’t think Barbara is a good mother–she raised Jenelle. But let’s be real, she’s better. She’s the lesser of these two evils by far and all she had to do to get that title was not murder a dog.
Here’s David’s phone call:
