Due to her most dishonorable past, Jenelle Evans gave up custody of her son Jace, 6, to her mother Barbara years ago. 

But now that she's cleaned up her act, Jenelle is making it clear: she wants him back.

There's just one problem. Barbara doesn't want to give him to her.

In a blog post entitled "Overcoming Life's Obstacles," Jenelle spills the beans about her battle for custody with Babs.

"I’m going to fight a tough battle between my own mother and me because she will not let me have my son back," she wrote.

Jenelle's relationship with her mother has been rocky for some time, and the Teen Mom 2 star's tumultuous past with drugs and the law certainly tipped the scales in Babs' favor.

It's not too surprising that Grandma might be reluctant to turn the child over to his mother, who has been arrested 16 times, including an arrest for assault just last August

However, Jenelle thinks her mom's motives are selfish.

"I think maybe she’s too attached to him, or maybe she doesn’t want to be alone," she wrote.

"I never thought my mother would still put up such a battle with me, knowing I’m sober, knowing my dating life is perfect, and everything has been smooth sailing since I’ve moved back. Whatever the case may be, I think I’ve waited long enough."

Maybe Nana just wants her daughter to go an entire year without getting picked up by the fuzz.

To her credit, Jenelle has been making positive strides in her life.

She's gotten sober, she earned her college degree and claims to be in a stable relationship with "amazing" boyfriend David Eason, although the dalliance is still relatively new.

"I’m hoping within these next couple of months that getting custody of Jace is going to be the biggest accomplishment I’ve ever made in my life, and I cannot wait until that day!" she closes out the post.

May the best woman win. And we mean that quite literally.

As you may already know, Joe Giudice has a bit of a drinking problem.

In fact, Juicy Joe loves the juice so much that he's admitted his boozing may have led to some of the poor decisions that now have him facing a 41-month prison sentence

In an odd twist, however, the same addiction that's got Joe headed for the clink may lead to his sentence being delayed.

According to Radar Online Giudice might be headed to rehab, despite the fact that he's scheduled to turn himself in to authorities next month.

“He was always home. He wasn’t driving. But he drinks a lot. He’s gonna get into, God willing, the right alcohol program,” Teresa said in a recent interview.

Many felt that the sudden concern about Joe's alcoholism was part of an effort to get his sentence pushed back. 

If that was the case, it appears the Giudices have now given up on that long shot campaign and have resigned themselves to the fact that Joe will most likely be seeking treatment from behind prison walls.

“I want him to do a program; let’s just leave it at that,” Teresa recently clarified while speaking with People magazine.

She also stated that Joe's boozing never interfered with his duties as a husband or father, and she's merely concerned that he's putting his health at risk:

“He’s not abusive or anything, thank God, but he drinks every day," Teresa said. "That’s not good. It’s not good for your liver.”

So Joe cheats on Teresa and generally acts like a lazy a-hole all the time, but it's not because of his drinking. Good to know.

STOP THE PRESSES! PUT DOWN THOSE CHAMPAGNE GLASSES!

We have some disheartening news:

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are not engaged.

This may come as a shock to many readers because Chyna wore a diamond ring on her finger earlier this week and also captioned a photo of her and her boyfriend with a diamond ring emoji.

But, despite this proof, an insider tells People Magazine that Rob never popped the life-altering question.

Simply put, they are "not engaged," this source says, explaining of why Chyna has been seen around with the aforementioned shiny piece of jewelry on her hand:

"Chyna is all about attention, and that's probably why she keeps flashing the ring."

Wait... WHAT?!? Blac Chyna is all about attention?!?

We're gonna need a few moments to digest this unexpected analysis and evaluation...

However, just because Blac Chyna won't be walking down the aisle any time soon with Rob, that doesn't mean things aren't serious between the stars.

On Thursday, the mother of Tyga's son jumped on Instagram to post a NSFW snapshot of herself wearing nothing but a thong while modeling a pair of Kardashians's "Stay Trill" Arthur George socks.

Rob himself has said far less in public about the romance, but those in the know are speaking on his behalf.

"She makes him super happy, and this is the first time that he's felt so optimistic about life in years," another source tells People.

"She helps keep Rob in check with his health and makes sure he is abiding by his diet and exercising.

"He feels there's strong potential for this relationship to go a long way, but for now they are very content and complement each other really well."

Earlier this week, several media outlets reported that Kim Kardashian had hired a divorce attorney without Kanye West's knowledge.

We dismissed the rumor as typical tabloid BS, and we still don't think Kim and 'Ye are headed for a divorce - but that doesn't mean they're not experiencing problems.

According to Radar Online the Wests recently stepped out for what was supposed to be a low-key date at Kenmore 75 in Manhattan.

As is usually the case, however, they attracted the notice of dozens of other patrons, many of whom observed that the couple did not seem terribly smitten with one another.

"They were just very distant towards one another the entire time they were there," says one onlooker. "They honestly acted like they could not be bothered with each other.”

Another witness described Kimye as looking "tense and unhappy."

The couple was eventually joined by Kim's sister Kourtney and best friend, Jonathan Cheban.

Sources say Kim and Yeezy seemed to lighten up once company arrived.

Rumors of marital trouble between Kardashian and West seem to surface at least once a week, but this time around they seem  more legit, as there's ample evidence to suggest that Kim was not happy with Kanye's attack on Wiz Khalifa and his 2-year-old child during a recent Twitter rant.

Could it be that Kim is finally getting as sick of Kanye as the rest of the world has been for years?
