Jenelle Evans’ Life on the Land Exposed on Deeply Troubling Series

Well, it’s finally over. The End of an Error, you could say.

After six installments, a sh!t ton of crying, and more excuses than we can count, Jenelle Evans’ “I Have Something to Say” series has wrapped up its iconic first-season run on YouTube.

Now, it’s time to look back at what we learned.

There are some obvious things, of course:

  • The Teen Mom 2 terror has too much time on her hands;
  • She’s more desperate than ever to stay relevant;
  • She blames everyone else for her problems.

But there are more subtle lessons, as well, many of them having to do with the never-ending insanity that is life on The Land.

The Land, of course, is the mythical, cleverly-named spot where the Eason-Evans homestead is located in North Carolina. 

Join us as we take a trip down memory lane and revisit the key takeaways from Jenelle’s biggest waste of time ever.

1. A Mother’s Fury

Jenelle is very angry
Over the course of six episodes (few of which were delivered on Mondays, as planned), Jenelle Evans made her case against CPS and claimed her children were stolen by the government. The whole thing was every bit as insane as it sounds …

2. Telling Her Tale

It started last month, when Jenelle uploaded an intensely dramatic, nearly 1-hour video, in which she alleged that she was unfairly targeted by Child Protective Services and accused the organization of essentially kidnapping her children.

3. The Nugget Incident

As you’ll recall, Jenelle’s kids were placed in new homes after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed the family dog during one of his infamous temper tantrums.

4. Drama Queen

Je vs cps 8
The first thing we learned from the videos is that Jenelle is as dramatic as ever. She kicked things off with a recording from a 911 call, followed by footage of her crying after losing her kids — footage that she apparently shot herself.

5. Mystery Tears

Je vs cps 2
From there, she showed a brief clip of her daughter Ensley crying. No context was provided, but apparently, we were supposed to conclude that the girl was in tears because her brother had been taken by CPS.

6. Breaking Out the Court Voice

Je vs cps 11
At that point, Jenelle started talking like a professional news lady, y’all, telling the camera, “Within the next few episodes, I’m gonna explain the corruption, distress, trauma introduced to my family by CPS of May, 2019.”

Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2: The Complete Babies, Kids & Stepkids Guide!

The girls from Teen Mom are good at many things.

They’re good at creating reality show magic, whether it’s through their family or romantic trials and tribulations. 

Some of them have written books, or even tried to start music careers, or Cam Girl careers, and while none of those were actually good … well, it was nice that Farrah tried.

But we can probably all agree that the area where the Teen Moms really, truly excel is the baby-making area.

Because they have so. Many. Babies.

So many you may have forgotten about some of them, impossible as that seems. Can you name them all?

Here’s the full rundown! Find out!

1. Sophia (Farrah Abraham and Derek Underwood)

Oh, Soph. Unlike many of her Teen Mom tot counterparts, Sophia lives the life of luxury, thanks to her mother, non-porn star Farrah Abraham. Seriously, the younger Abraham has had her own clothing line, dabbles in child modeling, receives $900 when the tooth fairy pays a visit, and is even beginning her own music career. (Sophia’s father, Derek, died in a car accident while Farrah was still pregnant; Derek’s grave is the site of many memorable TM scenes, which some believe to be shamelessly orchestrated by Farrah). Sophia is going to be a handful when she grows up at this rate … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say.

2. Leah (Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley)

Amber Portwood shares darling little Leah Shirley with her ex, Gary. Gary has custody, and he’s had it since Amber went to prison a few years back for all that domestic violence and drug stuff. Leah seems like a really smart, sweet girl, which is all thanks to Gary and his wife, Kristina — from what we’ve seen, Amber doesn’t spend a whole lot of time with her.

3. James (Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon)

Amber welcomed her second child, James, with Andrew Glennon in the spring of 2018. Their relationship survived about a year after that, because as it turned out, Amber still had a violent streak. She was convicted of assaulting Andrew in 2019, and after that, Andrew was given primary physical custody of James. Since then, he’s claimed that she’s been pretty flaky about the visits, but we don’t know too much more about it, since they’ve agreed not to put little James on the show.

4. Emilee (Gary and Kristina Shirley)

Gary went on to have one child after leaving his disastrous relationship with Amber — he and his wife, Kristina, have a daughter named Emilee.

5. Carly (Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra)

When middle school sweethearts (and briefly step-siblings) Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the decision to give their baby Carly up for adoption, it marked one of the most touching, bittersweet moments in reality TV history. What made it all the more incredible was that they stayed involved in her life – albeit with some bumps in the road – ever since.

6. Nova (Catelynn and Tyler)

Tyler and Catelynn kept and are raising Novalee Reign Baltierra together, not that it’s been easy. Catelynn has struggled greatly with postpartum depression, leading to multiple inpatient stays at a psychiatric facility in Arizona.
