On this week’s episode, fans witnessed the event as it Jade received a call from her mother asking Jade to bail her out of jail.
“Jade, please come bond me out of jail, please,” Jade’s mother Christy Smith begged on the episode.
“What the f–k. You’re in jail?” Jade demanded.
“Come bond me out for 500 and I’ll pay you back,” her mom begged.
Jade shot back, “What the f–k, Mom, I don’t have $500 right now.”
But her mom insisted, “Jade, please, please come get me out,” claiming, “I’ll pay you every dime back.”
Since this was before her first Teen Mom paycheck, coughing up $500 was not easy for Jade. “I’m going to have to come up with the money somehow because I don’t have it,” she said. “Oh my gosh. I’m going to have to figure out it.”
Jade spoke out with her take on the event when she was first cast in the show. “In my new season, both of my parents were just incarcerated,” she spilled. “They’ve been strung out for so long, they’re like binge addicts, where they’ll binge [on drugs] and then they’ll be okay. And then it’s like a fairytale for like a month and it’s like I have my mom back, my mommy is back.”
“It hurts because I’ve grown up and I haven’t had my mom there,” she explained. “My heart was hurting because my real dad committed suicide when I was 6 months old.”
She went on, “I feel like my real dad never loved me enough to stay and now I feel like, even when I have a second chance at a father, I feel like he never loved me enough to stay clean.”
