'Teen Mom 2' Star Jenelle Evans Lands Her Own Series, MTV Could Still Fire Her
Teen Mom 2 veteran Jenelle Evans won’t be stepping back from the camera anytime soon. The reality star has announced her own web series amid public drama with MTV.
Jenelle Evans's Comeback
Evans took to Twitter to share with fans that she is returning with a YouTube series called Off the Grid Adventures. She made the announcement after her husband David Eason was fired from the reality show.
I’m back! Check out new videos on my YouTube soon. The adventures start this Friday on 03/16/2018 at 8pm. Go subscribe now https://t.co/9sL1Akq4PP pic.twitter.com/gSuq92gP7U — Jenelle Eason (@PBandJenelley_1) March 13, 2018
He was given the boot after he tweeted hateful messages toward the LGBTQ community last month. The network released a statement and said he will not be a part of the remaining six weeks of production for this season or any other seasons moving forward.
“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” said the network.
Eason’s Twitter account was also deactivated after his tweets made headlines.
Evans subsequently took her and Eason’s 1-year-old daughter, Ensley, off the show. Now, word is that Evans’s future on the reality TV show is also in the network’s hands.
Jenelle Evans vs. MTV
The announcement of her YouTube series is her latest move as the reality star is said to have lawyered up during her talks with MTV. She was said to have a long list of demands that the network did not want to agree with.
One of those demands is that MTV couldn’t film on her residential property without paying a ton of money. The specific amount has not been released yet but speculation says it was too much to ask, thanks to Eason’s tweets.
“MTV shot that down,” said the insider. “No one wanted to film on Jenelle’s property because they were all disgusted by David.”
The source added that the network was also turned off by the number of guns the couple owns.
Will MTV Say Goodbye To Jenelle Evans?
On top of allegedly demanding a filming fee for taping on her property, Evans also requested the network to give Eason his spot back on the show. MTV’s parent company Viacom reportedly declined the request as well.
Word is that they aren’t convinced they even want to keep working with Evans after she defended her husband’s controversial tweets.
“MTV still hasn’t given Jenelle a date for when or even if filming would start with her again,” continued the source.
Meanwhile, fans can keep up with Evans and her family on her YouTube channel starting Friday.
