Jenelle Evans confessed on the Teen Mom 2 reunion show to contacting ex Kieffer Delp while her baby daddy Nathan Griffith was locked up this spring.

She came clean to Dr. Drew Pinsky about the secret messages she sent.

“I was looking more for a friend to talk to,” Jenelle Evans explained.

“And I just talked to him as a friend,” she insisted, nothing more.

The mother of five-year-old son Jace (with Andrew Lewis) and three-month-old son Kaiser (with Griffith) insisted she was transparent about this as well.

“I let Nathan see all the messages when he got out,” she said of Griffith's 30-day jail stint for driving with a suspended license. “I was honest with him.”

But her 26-year-old former Marine wasn’t thrilled with the news.

“I was pissed, but I knew yelling and screaming at her wouldn’t work,” Nathan said, explaining why he was so upset but without losing his cool (for a change).

On part two of Season 5's Teen Mom 2 reunion, Kailyn revealed a secret that made Javi furious, while Jo and Vee had some interesting news of their own.

Dr. Drew also zeroed in on Jenelle Evans, Nathan Griffith and her mother Barbara, who got real and personal with the doctor and the MTV audience.

What were the main takeaways from Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 30?

While last week focused primarily on Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska, it was Jenelle, and Kailyn Lowry, in the hot seat this week with Dr. Drew.

Jenelle Evans' segment focused on her plans to secure full custody of her five-year-old son Jace, who is now under the care of her mother Barbara.

After over a year of sobriety and welcoming her son Kaiser with boyfriend Nathan Griffith, Jenelle said she's prepared to become a full-time mother of two.

“I know I don’t completely got my life together as in being married for a couple of years and then having a career and doing it the right way," Jenelle admits.

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans posted a photo of her baby son Kaiser with what looks like a black eye, which of course prompted cries of child abuse online.

Someone even called Child Protective Services on her over the image below, which did not sit well with the Carolina Hurricane and sparked a Twitter rebuke:

  • Jenelle Evans' Son, Black Eye
  • Jenelle Evans and Sons

Jenelle leaves Kaiser, three months old, in the care of her mother-in-law (or her baby daddy's Nathan Griffith's mom, since they're not married) while in school.

Often, she posts pictures from their day to day adventures in parenting, but someone actually reported Jenelle to the state agency after this photo.

Anyone with little kids knows that they get bonked, bruised and scratched on a routine basis, figuring out how to crawl, walk and roll over, et cetera.

That, combined with the fact that no one was there to see what (if anything) happened to the youngster makes the call to CPS a pretty crazy move.

Not surprisingly, Jenelle was fuming about it:

Earlier this week, the women of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 assembled in NYC to film a special where they answered questions from fans and each other.

All seven stars, minus Farrah Abraham, were present and the results were as revealing as anything you'll see when you watch Teen Mom online.

For example? This exchange between Jenelle Evans and Amber Portwood, who just quashed their beef, in which Jenelle asked what the worst thing that happened to her in jail was ..

Needless to say, but Amber said it anyway: Portwood's 17-month jail experience was not like how you often see jail portrayed on TV. By a long shot.

As for why Farrah Abraham was not a part of the reunion, or the new 2015 season?

Maci said that after the original Teen Mom quartet finished filming in 2012, each girl made choices and Farrah’s weren’t in line with what the show stands for.

MTV went on to axe Abraham ... or if you believe Farrah, she voluntarily left. Right.

Other questions and answers we learned from the catch-up, catch-all special?

Continuing to turn over a new leaf in life, Jenelle Evans has evidently buried the hatchet with another fellow Teen Mom star, ending a long-running feud.

Jenelle and Amber Portwood have hashed out their differences, and amazingly, they did so while taping MTV's Ask The Moms special in August.

In other words, they made up in private, and kept it to themselves!

  • Amber Portwood Mug Shot (New)
  • Jenelle Evans Mug Shot (May 2013)

After Portwood admitted she doesn’t follow Jenelle Evans on Twitter after “some stuff” occurred and suggested she could benefit from prison time.

“With her just saying 'she needs to hit rock bottom before she’s able to pick herself up,' I think we’re both in different situations," Jenelle reflected.

"We both just dealt with it differently,” Evans added.

Amber Portwood served 17 months behind bars after multiple arrests and failing to properly complete a mandatory drug program. She's free now.

Kailyn was emotionally reunited with Isaac, while that derelict of society Adam went to jail for the umpteenth time on Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 25.

Meanwhile, tension is still high between Leah Messer and Corey Simms, while Jenelle Evans tries convincing Barbara Evans to finally let Jace go.

As mature as we've ever seen her, Jenelle sits down for a discussion with her mom and her son's guardian about Barbara giving Jenelle custody.

Nathan Griffith comes along for support, and while he fears Babs will come at him again, she responds well to Jenelle's calm, measured speech.

Of course, when the topic turns to Nathan's drinking, Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 25 takes a turn for the dramatic and he storms out of the room.

Fortunately, this didn't derail anything, as Barbara tearfully agrees to give Jace back to Jenelle after his next school year ends. So next summer.

It looks like Jenelle Evans’ dream is about to come true at last, according to a new sneak preview clip from the upcoming Teen Mom 2 season finale:

She's getting legal custody of her five-year-old son, Jace!

“I don’t think we have to go back to court, there’s no sense of that. I can just sign off on it,” says her mother Barbara, who has long been Jace’s guardian.

Did she, though? Did that actually happen at any point?

Barbara has cared for the young child ever since Jenelle gave birth and turned to a life of drugs, drinking and deadbeat men shortly thereafter.

Now that she's finally getting her life together, we see Jenelle and Nathan Griffith discuss regaining custody in a clip from Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 25.

The mother and daughter, whose blowout fights are one of the best reasons to watch Teen Mom 2, or watch TV online period, actually seem to agree, too.

“So basically, you’ll let me have Jace in a couple of months?” Jenelle asks.

“We can transition him over a year back to you,” her mother responds.

Wednesday, on MTV's Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 24, Jenelle Evans, who welcomed baby son Kaiser last week, mulled over another big move:

She and Nathan Griffith may try to get custody of her first son, as well.

Meanwhile, Leah Messer, Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska all struggled to come to grips with their respective custody issues in an emotional episode ...

Jenelle Evans' mom Barbara has legal custody of Jace. In case Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 24 is the first episode you've seen, this is for good reason:

Back in her heyday? Jenelle was a bit of a train wreck to put it mildly.

Give her credit now, though. She's putting in the time with her five-year-old boy, and when Jenelle, Nathan, and Jace lay in bed together and watch Kaiser?

Cutest thing ever. He loves his brother immediately, as do they.

When Jenelle wakes up to find her beau Nathan Griffith feeding their newborn, they share another sweet family moment. Things are going very well.

At least until Nathan brings up the idea of them taking custody of Jace, which he seems more keen on than she, even though she loves the kid.

Since giving birth this summer, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been declaring proudly (and frequently, social media maven that she is) that she's breastfeeding.

Opening up about the challenges of nursing, and parenting overall, the reality star has shared her thoughts, pictures, and opinions. It's been great stuff, mostly.

At least until we learned that Jenelle Evans is still smoking cigarettes ...

  • Nathan Griffith, Cigarettes
  • Jenelle Off-Center

Last week, this became public knowledge after shared a seemingly innocent picture of baby daddy Nathan Griffith passed out with a headset on.

A sweet and funny moment, until we looked at the bottom of the chair.

Evans' Twitter followers, eagle-eyed and forever detail-oriented, called her out, which prompted Jenelle to address the criticism she obviously incurred:

"Nobody smokes in my house. We step out on the front or back porch."

Yes, as in herself and/or Nathan Griffith, the mom of two confirmed.

"I'm outside right now smoking a cig lol," she Tweeted at a follower.

Don't quite know who's LOLing at that one, Jenelle. Do tell.

On Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 23, Leah Messer-Calvert and Corey Simms struggled with co-parenting, and they were far from alone in that department.

Meanwhile, Jenelle Evans welcomed the newest member of the MTV family! Follow the link to watch Teen Mom 2 online, then join us for our recap ...

As Leah and Corey's custody fight for their twins heats up, she is doing her best to stay in control of her emotions as she tries to gain the upper hand.

Both sides seem to really care about the girls and raising them to the best of their ability, and both are now remarried to people who have their backs.

What's said is that this should all make co-parenting easier, not harder, but both are also stubborn and digging in, believing their opinions are justified.

After taking with wife Miranda Patterson, Mr. Subtitles Corey met with his lawyer to strategize about how to make him the primary parent of the twins.

Leah's lawyer told her that Corey wants full custody, that Leah would only get them on weekends, and that she and Jeremy would have to pay support.
