This week’s episode of Teen Mom 2 included a scene in which Jenelle Eason was talking with her producer Kristen in the kitchen as a police officer was banging on their front door wanting to speak to a parent about reports of child neglect. Eventually, a shirtless David Eason comes out of the bedroom, which has a hole punched in the outside of the door, and he talks briefly with the officer before slamming the door in his face. Despite ALL OF THAT, the most talked about portion of the scene online was the virtual pharmacy of prescription pills that could clearly be seen on Jenelle’s kitchen counter in front of the bananas.
Here is a zoomed-in look:
After screen shots of the pill bottles made the rounds on social media, someone on Twitter pointed out one of the posts about it to Jenelle and asked “who is on all of these medications?”
“David has medication due to not having a thyroid anymore,” Jenelle begins her explanation. “Jace is on medicine ?, I have GERD and esophageal spasms, we get sick sometimes so antibiotics.” Jenelle then concedes: “We need to organize it better lol.”
Jenelle then responded to the same tweet again and admitted that she had a similar reaction to everyone else. “I totally understand why you’re asking lol I saw that and was like ??♀️??♀️??♀️ holy sh!t.”
Although she cleared up the kitchen drug store thing, Jenelle has still yet to address why there is a fist-sized hole on the outside of her bedroom door at eye level:
Actually, Jenelle may have addressed the hole in the door in a roundabout way as she responded to tweets expressing concerns that her husband David Eason is violent and potentially dangerous. Here are those concerns and Jenelle’s responses:
TWEETER: Dear @PBandJenelley_1, I don’t know you.I do know #Violence. When I was your age I had an extremely violent & controlling BF, who crushed me physically & emotionally. I was blessed to escape w/my life. I was dead inside. I see that same look in your eyes. RUN! Leave! …If not for you, for your kids. Not only do they not need to fear the monster that lives in their house, but 1 rage could be the accident that ends it all. No judgement. Only ♥. Reach out. PPL will help. #YouAreNotAlone #TeenMom2
JENELLE: Dear Whoever You Are,
I’ve been through many many controlling, emotionally and [physically] abusive relationships. My husband does not ‘crush me’, hurt me, or abuse me in any way. I did run away from many diff men and choose to start over and fresh every single time. If you only knew what type of “monster” David was…. you’d be surprised. When your son refuses to make a Fathers Day gift for his real dad and says his stepdad means more to him… THAT speak volumes. You only know what you see for 5 mins on a show each week, months ago lol
TWEETER: Sorry @PBandJenelley_1 — your “man” is scary. You can do so much better. All but cause he is the father of your child doesn’t mean you have to be with him. You should know that by now. Think girl. You got this.
JENELLE: I think he’s sexy. ??♀️?
OK, that about does it for this week’s episode. But let’s not forget that there is still the mystery of the bedside propane tank from earlier this season:
Those Hatter True Detectives don’t play!
