As I was working on other things today, the news about Jenelle Evans getting fired from Teen Mom started pouring into my inbox. I think we need to take a moment to understand what happened with Jenelle Evans.
I’m not sure what we know about who her sperm donor was, but we do know Jenelle Evans didn’t have a father. As much as we all love Barb, she’s sort of gotten sucked into this hole of suck known as reality TV too.
Jenelle Evans was about sixteen or seventeen years old when she got pregnant. As if her life was not already bad enough, a reality TV show cam along and gave her money. And then more money. And then more money to exploit Jenelle’s situation.
She’s been in a handful of abusive relationships since. Recently, the man she thinks she loves killed her dog. And now, the money train is pulling out. Jenelle is of no use to them anymore.
I don’t have kids. But if I did, this is not the life I would like for my child. She has nothing to fall back on. No family that can financially help her. Her idiot husband will leave her now. He’ll try to take all of her money and her home. It’s just a hot mess.
I also worry that without the cameras around Jenelle and the children and the family pets are in more danger. Reality TV is something that only idiots sign up for at this point.
I wish the best for Jenelle Evans. I don’t think she ever stood a chance.
