Kailyn Lowry Slams Jenelle Evans’ Threat to Quit: Yeah, Right!
Teen Mom 2 might be about to lose one of its most controversial stars, as Jenelle Evans has threatened to quit. The Carolina Hurricane claims that MTV is making her and her husband look bad.
The Jenelle Evans rant that prompted all of this was Jenelle going on Instagram to threaten to quit Teen Mom 2.
"Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for."
We know that this will shock you, folks, but Jenelle's about to get super defensive about David Eason.
"Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera they make it look as if David is hiding some weird ass s–t from the public as if he was hurting me in some way?!"
She needs to be aware that MTV can only edit so much — that fans are concerned about David Eason for a whole host of reasons?
"I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show."
That's quite a threat.
"I told Morgan it’s getting to out of hand and it’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally."
Oh, is that what's wrong?
All jokes aside, Jenelle Evans had issues before MTV ever came into her life.
"They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages."
Right … it's a reality show. Except that she's not in a cage and is, in fact, getting paid. Pretty generously, as we understand it.
"WE aren’t human beings to @mtv what-so-ever. The first screenshot of the custody episode someone posted photoshopping a hand mark on my arm. The other screenshots are pictures I’ve taken myself from the same episode… and there aren’t any hand marks."
Jenelle really didn't make it clear whether she was accusing MTV of that or just a random fan.
But then Jenelle makes it sound like she's serious about threatening to leave … and describes the way that MTV can win her back.
"Once they treat me with respect I’ll be back, if they don’t I’ll be happy with the life I’ve got. I told them this last night."
It sure sounds like Jenelle is just trying to get them to sanitize her life, right?
Because even though reality shows are told through the lens of editing, you can only take things out or maybe take a few things out of context.
(Taking too many things out of context would make the story incoherent)
Try as they might, we don't see MTV's editors being able to add things in to Teen Mom 2.
Considering that David Eason makes Jenelle's own mother worried for Jenelle and for Jenelle's children, it looks like there's more than editing behind the way that fans are viewing their relationship.
But … either Jenelle doesn't see it, or she just doesn't want to see it.
I the video below, Kailyn is asked about Jenelle's threat to quit. Kailyn starts her answer as diplomatically as she can.
"I think we all feel differently."
Sure. But …
"I have to disagree with her statement about MTV."
We'd imagine so.
"As far as I can see it, you wouldn't have stuck with the show for 8 years if that were the case."
That's a very good point. Maybe Jenelle's just huffing and puffing because she wants to defend David Eason's honor, or whatever.
"I'll leave that there."
She almost did. But remember that burn that we mentioned?
When asked if she thinks that Jenelle should stay or go, Kailyn replied with this:
"I don't care what Jenelle does."
We do have to point out that there's one thing that's different now than it was for most of Jenelle's time on Teen Mom 2:
If he's really as controlling as they say, maybe he's the one who's encouraging Jenelle to quit Teen Mom 2.
It's hard to see why he, or anyone, would want to close up the cash flow of that sweet Teen Mom money.
But maybe he wants the cameras off. That's a chilling thought.
What's worse is that Jenelle might give him what he wants.
