The time has come to splash around the alligator swamps of North Carolina and pay a visit to Jenelle Evans. This girl took drama to a whole new (and slightly deranged) level during this week's episode of Teen Mom 2, in which she got into yet another fight with her mom, our personal spirit animal Barbara Evans.

These southern broads were on bad terms over an argument over Jenelle's boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, and unfortunately their feud seemed to be effecting Jenelle's love child, Jace.

The situation came to a head at Jace's birthday party, and it wasn't pretty — unlike Nathan's biceps.

First, Jenelle yelled at Babs for saying that Jace's Spiderman cake was made of "fondu" (um, we think this means "fondant" in the Wonderful World of Babs). Then, Nathan and his pendulous man necklace smothered Barbara with kisses while uttering the amazing sentence "everybody should be luvin'," but make no mistake — it was a tense moment and Jace witnessed every second of it.

So, what was this kid up to while his role models duked it out?  In case you hadn't noticed, Jace was hitting all his friends during the soiree (whatever, these children were totally all up in his grill), and Babs thinks his bad behavior was due to the fact that Jenelle keeps wandering in and out of his life. According to Jenelley, Jace is a total cherub when he spends the night at her place, but the second he gets home he becomes aggressive. Could his behavioral switcheroo have something to do with missing his mom? We're so worried.

Luckily, Jenelle and Babs were able to have a mature conversation about their little man's outbursts, so we have a feeling their great minds will come up with a solution that's mutually beneficial to everyone!
