Jenelle Evans Knew ‘Teen Mom 2’ Firing Was Coming!
Most of us are shocked when we get laid off or fired but not ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans, who was let go from the popular MTV reality series yesterday. The firing came after her husband, David Eason shot and killed Evans dog, Nugget, prompting an investigation from animal control and sponsors dropping out from the show. MTV had seized working with Eason a while back after some homophobic remarks were made so anytime he was around Jenelle, cameras could not be on. The dog incident was the last straw for MTV: “We have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season. MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of ‘Teen Mom 2’ with him since,” a spokesperson shared with TMZ. Evans was apparently devastated over her firing, worried about how she would generate income but, according to an interview she gave to Us Weekly today, it was only a matter of time before her relationship with MTV came to an end.
“I was a little bit shocked but I saw it coming. It’s shocking still but I respect their decision and have nothing but love for MTV.” Evans claims she is working on her marriage despite not having communication with her husband and mentioning divorce right after Nugget was killed . Apparently, she and Eason are in talks for ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ as a way to keep the cash flow and she has her cosmetics line though no words as to how it will be impacted if she stays with her husband. Fans were appalled when Evans was giving statement after statement to magazines and gossip outlets in her time of grief, feeling she was profiting off of her dog’s death. Now, she is seemingly staying with Eason as way to stay financially solid when she would have a much better chance without him. The couple share daughter Ensley Jolie while Jenelle has two sons, Jace and Kaiser from two prior relationships. What do you think of the firing and the couple staying together? Let us know!
