Is it time to file Jenna Burke away as the Drunk Tim of The Bachelor Season 16 — a decent person who just got overwhelmed by the moment (and the booze)?

Last week, one of Jenna's employers defended her to Wetpaint Entertainment. Yesterday, Jenna tried to explain her Bachelor melodrama in a media conference call. And now one of her friends is speaking out to In Touch, also saying the Jenna we saw sobbing and slurring her way through Episodes one and two is not at all the sweet, down-to-earth girl she knows.

“It was nerves,” Jenna’s friend Maggie Maskery told In Touch, adding that a few glasses of wine on an empty stomach didn’t help matters, either. “Jenna said she overheard Monica [Spannbauer] saying she didn’t like her, and so she confronted her,” Maggie explained. “But she isn’t crazy. It was all brilliant editing.”

At the end of the day, someone had to be the early season Drama Girl! Thank you, Jenna, for your service to Bachelor Nation.
