Keep reading for emotions + drama + a general feeling of “WTF is even happening.”

Jenelle Drops a *Huge* Truth Bomb on Jace

Jenelle’s finally coming clean to her son! The controversial North Carolina native told Jace all about the ongoing custody battle with her mom, Barbara Evans, explaining that she had to give Jace to Babs when he was just a baby. “A long time ago when you were a baby, the judge told me and Meme, since I didn’t have a house for me and you to live in, that you had to stay with Meme,” Jenelle explained. “So, now I have to take Meme back to court to ask the judge if I can have you back.”

Jenelle told Jace that she “wanted to have this talk” with him for a long time, and assured her kid that she was “trying” to get custody back. Jace’s reaction? This little dude seemed pretty into the idea of living with his mom over Babs — but also had to witness a screaming fight between them during which Babs threw shade at Jenelle’s boyfriend and accused her of “brainwashing” Jace. Naturally, Jenelle reacted super maturely, by which we mean she called her mom “verbally violent” and refused to drop Jace home, prompting Barbara to say, “It’ll be a long time in hell before he goes to your house again.” And, yes, Jace was listening.

By the way, Barbara might have a point when it comes to concerns about Jenelle’s boyfriend, David Eason. MTV’s cameras caught him telling Jace, “You’re 6 years old. Do not scream like a little girl.” Sad face.

How Does Leah Feel About Jeremy Calvert’s New Girlfriend?

Jeremy Calvert is moving on! Leah’s ex-husband introduced his new girlfriend, Brooke, to his ex, and they both handled it like pros. “She was really nice,” Leah said after a quick meet-and-greet. “Maybe one day we can all actually sit down and really get a chance to talk if they become more serious.” The single mom also said she wants to support Jeremy, and mused, “If they’re serious then I’m happy for him … I don’t want to disrespect her the way I disrespected [Corey Simm‘s wife] Miranda.”

Unfortunately, Leah and Jeremy’s relationship wasn’t totally drama-free this week. Leah was furious when he ditched their daughter, Addie, to pick up Brooke’s kid, and said, fuming, “He needs to stop worrying about someone else’s child and worry about his own … I’m not gonna allow Jeremy to hurt Addie. I’m not gonna allow it.”

In other news, Leah threw a barbecue to celebrate one year post-rehab (plus getting 50/50 custody of her twins!) and had a supersweet moment making s’mores with her daughters. Sigh, so much has changed for this West Virginia Mountain Mama. In her own words, “There was a time I thought, S–t, I’m giving up.”

Chelsea Takes Home a Child Support Win

When it comes to Adam Lind, Chelsea’s attitude is 100 percent “Bitch better have my money.” The newly engaged Midwesterner was pleased to find out that Adam’s lawyer advised him not to fight his increased child support payments, but was super annoyed by his behavior on social media. “He’s been making posts on social media like, ‘I guess she needs this money, blah, blah, blah,’ as in I need his money,” she complained to a friend. “No, first of all child support is not for me. And you haven’t had any responsibility for the last six years.”

Chelsea went on to call Adam “delusional” and a “narcissist,” but, hey — at least she has world’s most perfect man, Cole DeBoer, by her side. In fact, Cole’s wedding ring came in the mail, and his thrilled reaction was so cute we could barely cope. Expect these two to pop out a million babies as soon as they get hitched, because Cole confirmed that the first thing on their post-wedding agenda is “family planning.” In the words of Chelsea, “You’re gonna put a baby in me … we’re gonna make little Colies!”

Bombshell: Javi Wants a Divorce

The phrase “trouble in paradise” could not be more of an understatement when it comes to Kailyn and her husband, Javi. Things went from bad to worse during this episode, with Javi’s complaints about Kailyn not making him a priority turning into a very real conversation about divorce. Why? Because Kailyn doesn’t want any more kids. “Javi and I have not been good for two freakin’ years, why on God’s green earth would I bring another child into that?” Kailyn told a friend. “He says if I’m not gonna have any more kids, he can’t stay with me.”

Kailyn and her husband ended up speaking on FaceTime, and instead of working through their issues, they started planning their divorce. “I guess there is no future,” Javi said when Kailyn confirmed kids were out of the question. “I’m always gonna resent you, I’m always be mad at you deep down … Once we decide to get a divorce here, or when we decide to get a divorce when I get home, my dad can move my s–t, and when I get home I don’t have to go to that house.”

Javi ended the conversation by asking Kailyn to get the ball rolling on divorce paperwork, and she seemed pretty game. Oh, and for those of you wondering if Kailyn’s worried about her kids, she thinks they’ll be better off with their mom happy and single. “Isaac calls him ‘Dad,’ so, like, that’s really freakin’ hard,” she said. “But I want my kids to see a healthy, solid relationship, or not.”
