Jenelle Evans Could Still Be Fired from Teen Mom 2, Asks MTV for More Money Anyway
Jenelle Evans is not in the best place right now in terms of her career.
Or in terms of her relationships with other people. Or in terms of being a stable human being.
In terms of anything, really.
She’s been sort of spiraling for a while now, so much that it’s honestly difficult to pinpoint an exact moment that things started going so wrong for her again.
There was a time when many people thought she was finally getting her life together, when she got with David Eason (before many people found out about his scary criminal record) and they built their home together.
But then we saw David on the show and began to realize what a creep he was, and we learned that Jenelle had been doing drugs while pregnant with Ensley and all the stuff about the alleged child neglect and abuse …
And it looks like things have just always been a mess.
Still, things have intensified recently, with all the (extremely well-deserved) criticism she’s been getting for doing drugs during her pregnancy and, you know, for standing by a gigantic jackass like David.
Last month, David made some extremely homophobic and transphobic comments on Twitter, and MTV promptly fired him from Teen Mom 2.
Jenelle liked a few of his tweets and she never spoke out against his hateful comments except to say that he simply didn’t understand how Twitter works and that he’d “keep his comments to himself from now on.”
Oh, and she also said that he’s not homophobic because they went to a party once where there were gay people and “he didn’t act in any type of way.”
We’ve heard many reports about the situation, about how she could be fired too, or she could quit.
We’ve also heard that MTV wrapped up filming early down in North Carolina, and there are no plans yet for the crew to return.
But as of now, we haven’t heard anything official about Jenelle’s status on the show.
Don’t go getting too sad about the lack of news though — because we do have a hilarious new report about how she may be handling this situation!
According to a source who spoke with Radar Online, Jenelle has been begging producers to keep her on the show … but she’s been angling for more money at the same time?
“Jenelle hired an entertainment lawyer to negotiate with MTV,” the source claimed, “but the network wasn’t giving in to any of her demands.”
One of her demands, believe it or not, was that the network pay her an additional fee to film on her property.
That’s just … what is she … why would that ever be a thing that would happen?
It kind of sounds like her logic is that MTV and David are at odds, and since her home is also David’s home, they need extra compensation to allow them to film there?
It also sounds like she’s not taking into consideration that all of the cast members have always filmed in their homes, and that it doesn’t make sense at all for Jenelle to receive extra money just because her husband was too dumb to not get fired.
The source said that “MTV shot that down,” of course, and that “no one wanted to film on Jenelle’s property because they were all disgusted by David.”
“And all of the guns are unacceptable too, people are afraid of what David could do.”
In addition to asking for more money, the source said that she also tried to get David back on the show, but MTV refused.
Not only that, but the network “still hasn’t given Jenelle a date for when or even if filming would start with her again.”
And that’s because “she could still be fired from the show.”
If Jenelle is pulling dumb stunts like trying to get a bonus for filming at her own house, and if the crew is legitimately afraid for their lives because of David with his terrible temper and gun collection …
Maybe it wouldn’t be the worst thing if she got fired.
