Jenelle Evans: Did She Abandon Her Kids to Go on a Cross-Country Drug Run?!

Jenelle Evans has been involved in so much ridiculous behavior over the years that you might think there's no way she could shock you at this point.

But apparently, the Teen Mom 2 star is intent on proving you wrong.

The last two months may have been the most bonkers of Jenelle's life — which is really saying something.

And if a new report is to be believed, she decided to cap the whole thing off by ditching the kids and embarking on a drug-fueled cross-country odyssey.

Check it out:

1. Road Warriors

Jenelle and David have decided to ditch their responsibilities and hit the road. It’s like Easy Rider, except instead of hippie bikers, it’s a pair of negligent parents.

2. Traveling Twosome

3. Taking Their Time

They seem to have a lot of time on their hands for two people with a bunch of kids at home (including one who’s homeschooled) but we digress.

4. Goin’ Back to Cali

It’s David and Jenelle’s time in California that’s attracting the most attention — and drawing some major suspicions.

5. The Timing

For one thing, California is being consumed by historic wildfires at the moment, so it’s a bit of an odd time to take a trip there.

6. To Be Fair…

Jenelle and David didn’t know that would happen at the time they planned the trip, so they can’t really be judged for the awful timing.

Lena Dunham Reveals Battle With Drug Addiction

Lena Dunham has been a divisive figure for the majority of her career, but this week, the Girls creator revealed that she shares something in common with tens of millions of Americans from all walks of life and all regions of the country.

In an interview with actor Dax Shepard, Dunham revealed that she has struggled with prescription pill addiction for several years.

“I was having crazy anxiety and having to show up for things that I didn’t feel equipped to show up for … but I know I need to do it, and when I take a Klonopin, I can do it,” Dunham said on the latest episode of Shepard’s podcast.

“I didn’t have any trouble getting a doctor to tell me, ‘No, you’ve got serious anxiety issues, you should be taking this. This is how you should be existing,’” Dunham continued.

“It stopped being, ‘I take one when I fly,’ and it started being like, ‘I take one when I’m awake.’”

Dunham attributes her acute anxiety to trauma stemming from sexual assault and health issues:

“I was diagnosed with pretty serious PTSD,” Lena said.

“I have a few sexual traumas in my past and then I had all these surgeries and then I had my hysterectomy after a period of really extreme pain … It stopped feeling like I had panic attacks and it started feeling like I was a living panic attack.”

These days, it often seems that public figures only open up about substance abuse issues when they’re forced to following some sort of PR disaster, so we commend Lena for opening up of her own volition.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Dunham will be penning a screenplay for a J.J. Abrams-Steven Spielberg film about a family of Syrian refugees.

On social media, many were critical of the decision to hire Dunham for such a project, arguing that there’s no way someone in her position can relate to the plight of Syrians driven from their homeland by war.

But perhaps Abrams, Spielberg, and company knew what the rest of us did not — that Dunham is a survivor of a different variety, and with sufficient compassion, she may be able to channel her painful past in a creatively productive way.

Only time will tell, of course.

But for now, we applaud Dunham for being candid about such a topic that affects so many, yet is so rarely addressed.


Erica Mena, Love & Hip Hop Star, Arrested for Drug Possession

Erica Mena has been placed under arrest.

The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast member was taken into custody on Friday after police arrived on the scene in response to a domestic dispute.

According to TMZ, Mena and her boyfriend, Clifford Dixon, were both taken away by the cops after an argument got out of hand inside their Johns Creek, Georgia apartment.

Witnesses near the scene told authorities that Mena and Dixon had not only been arguing, but that the latter had kicked in a bedroom door in order to get to the former.

One of Erica and Cliff’s roommates even told police that she/he heard someone get slapped upstairs, although no one actually saw any physical abuse take place.

Cops did not report any signs of an altercation on either party, either.

This is to say, neither Mena nor Dixon had any marks on their bodies at the time of the arrest.

Dixon was arrested for criminal trespass because Mena told cops the property was in her name.

Meanwhile, Erica was arrested for possession of marijuana, despite having less than one ounce of her at the time of the arrest.

She has since made bail.

Mena returned to Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta last season.

Prior to coming on board, she was a staple on Love & Hip Hop: New York.


Other professional ventures for Mena include having written the books “Chronicles of a Confirmed Bachelorette” and “Underneath It All.”

In August of 2017, it was announced that Mena would compete in the first season of VH1’s Scared Famous, which premiered on October 23, 2017.

Mena was previously engaged to Bow Wow and wrote the following upon leaving the New York version of this Love & Hip Hop franchise:

I have fan base that now become my family! I can’t thank you all enough for following & riding this ride. You are all appreciated.

No matter what I’m always going to be Open and Real with you all. This chapter has ended but the real deal is the journey has just begun.

Four years ago became #MenaMonday.

I let the world in and it’s been a crazy ride since. I’ve always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story was meant to be told. I’ve made many mistakes and I get judge[d] harshly.

Thank God I’m as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me.

It’s unclear whether this arrest will impact Mena’s future on VH1.

We don’t mean that she’ll get fired for a little bit of weed, of course.

We mean she may very well get a raise!

Stay tuned to find out what transpires.
