Jenelle Evans vs. Leah Messer: Feud Erupts on Twitter!
Last night’s Teen Mom 2 reunion show focused on Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska, and while there was plenty of drama on those fronts (particularly on Kailyn’s end), it was a preview of next week’s installment that really got fans talking online.
The clip showed Jenelle storming away from the studio, explaining to a producer that she didn’t believe she was being treated properly.
“I just keep telling everyone I don’t feel good and nothing’s being done about it!” Jenelle shrieks at the poor handler tasked with preventing her from leaving the lot.
“I’m gonna make myself feel better and I’m going to leave,” Jenelle concludes.
Not surprisingly, Jenelle’s diva antics sparked some manor backlash on social media.
Never one to back down from a fight, Evans responded on Twitter:
“Behind the scenes drama,” Jenelle tweeted.
“I was done filming my part of the reunion and was hungry for hours with a burning chest from heart burn.
Sounds like a reasonable explanation.
But if you thought she was done justifying her actions, you don’t know Jenelle.
“So I ended up leaving with David and Jace back to the hotel and everyone was trying to keep me from leaving… I just wanted food lol.”
Fans pointed out that the excuses didn’t seem to jibe with the fact that Jenelle told producers she needed to go home because she was sick.
“I was sick because I had acid reflux/heartburn from not eating. No one cared cuz I asked for food for 3 hours and wasn’t allowed to leave.”
Yet again, she continued:
“I had acid reflux because I was pregnant. Had it every day until I delivered. Even made me throw up like crazy.”
If there’s anyone on the show who understands taking flak from fans, it’s Leah Messer.
Leah has been criticized for everything from her parenting to her love life,
But even Ms. Messer wasn’t having Jenelle’s excuses:
“She gets paid for this, she should be here,” Messer stated bluntly.
Of course, Chelsea Houska was also pregnant at the time, but unlike Jenelle, Houska is actually well-liked by her co-stars.
So when she was asked about the fact that Chelsea wasn’t feeling well, Leah offered a much warmer response:
“Chelsea is sick,” Leah said.
“I do not blame her, she is carrying a child she needs to go ahead.”
Naturally, Jenelle felt the need to respond to Leah’s criticism, tweeting:
“@TM2LeahDawn damn tell me how you really feel! Haha, I was sick and pregnant with heart burn. You know nothing you’re right so don’t comment.”
“Don’t be fake. #Truth”
Fun fact: the more someone uses “#Truth” the more likely it is that they’re a compulsive liar.
