Once again, Jenelle Evans is threatening to quit MTV’s Teen Mom 2, claiming producers are causing major damage to her life and marriage.
In response to her portrayal on Monday’s episode, the Carolina Hurricane said she is “not healthy anymore” and put the network on blast.
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you saw an episode last night that focused heavily on marital problems between Jenelle and David Eason.
The 25-year-old did not take kindly to it.
Slamming producers in an Instagram post early Tuesday, she said the way her marriage was portrayed by producers is just “uncalled for.”
“Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for,” she captioned the not-at-all-staged pic above.
“Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera,” Jenelle said, MTV distorted it terribly.
“They make it look as if David is hiding some weird ass shit from the public as if he was hurting me in some way?”
Evans continued railing against last night’s Teen Mom 2: “I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show.”
“I told [my Teen Mom producer] Morgan it’s getting to out of hand and it’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally.”
“They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages. 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.
“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. #MarriedLife #MIA”
Cameras followed the newlyweds last night as they planned a photoshoot for the Save the Date cards for their forthcoming wedding.
At one point, Eason appeared to kick the film crew out of the house, though he acted like everything was fine the next day.
It was not fine, however, as Jenelle saw it.
She continued with a second rant later:
“MTV has done a great job this time. I watched last nights episode at 2 p.m. yesterday afternoon and have been very upset ever since.”
Though her Instagram is active, she said, “I deactivated my accounts mainly because I don’t want to even begin to read the comments.”
“Here are texts of me explaining that subtitling my son when he has speech therapy isn’t right at all,” she adds, with this screen shot:
“MTV feels the need to keep it in their story and out the subtitle in ‘feed me,'” she laments, noting “I’ve blocked all my producers numbers.”
“I will not stand for the negative shit anymore. I’ll be off social media for a while to be focusing on solely my family. @mtv”
Jenelle’s parting shot to the producers? “You guys are making my marriage look like it’s one big f–king joke so thanks.”
In Evans’ defense, she is not the only member of the cast to complain about editing, which certainly happens on any show.
Producers have a vested interest in a “storyline” fans want to watch, and often times tension beats calm domestic bliss.
On the flip side … come on Jenelle.
To say she’s had a tumultuous life largely of her own making would be an understatement, and her relationship with David is no exception.
Why would we possibly think this tension with David is manufactured, and moreover, why would she care what Teen Mom 2 fans think?
If you’re a fan of Jenelle, you’ve come to accept the bad with the good a long, long time ago, and support her through thick and thin.
Sure, you might hope reports of a fourth pregnancy (above) are false, and question her decisions, but no one hasn’t formed an opinion.
It is what it is. Why hide behind editing like you’re protecting some pristine, otherwise immaculate reputation MTV is intent on ruining?
