“Teen Mom 2” Jenelle Evans is in the news once again for making another poor decision. The reality TV star’s latest foray into TV is a series of parenting videos. That’s right, the woman who should probably stay away from giving anyone advise on anything is handing out parenting advice. For quite some time now, Evans has been teasing a few upcoming projects. As she waited for her contract with MTV to finish she focused on upping her YouTube subscribers and gaining attention for dropping little tidbits of information regarding her troubles with MTV.
Evans teased a behind-the-scenes clip look of she and Eason on the set of their new show. The short clip heard Evans and Eason sharing advice on what parents can do to keep their kids entertained while they travel. Evans can be heard saying “you have to have the iPads charged and make sure you have games downloaded onto the iPad because we don’t have internet” before Eason cuts her off to talk about a clip of the popular cartoon “The Simpsons”.
The post was shared by Instagram “Teen Mom” fan account @tmmamadrama it immediately had fans concerned for whoever plans on taking advice from the parents. “This is like Helen Keller giving makeup tips ?” said one follower. Another echoed their sentiments, “Why would anyone take parenting advice from parents whose children were taken by Child Protective Services? These two are delusional, as is anyone else involved in this “project””. Evans and Eason have had a rough go of it the past few years the couple had their kids taken away for a long period of time last year.
Evans is also in an ongoing battle with her mom Barb for custody of the first son she gave up rights to Jace, 11. Since Jace, Evans has had two more kids Kaiser, 5 with ex Nathan Griffith and Ensley, 3 the daughter she shares with husband Eason. Eason has a daughter from a previous relationship Maryssa, 11. In the past, the couple have blamed a lot of their predicaments on their association with MTV. Evans has also shared that she believes that MTV has held her back. She was famously quoted saying that she is no longer a teenager and doesn’t want to be associated with a show about teen mothers now that she is almost 30.
A few months ago, Evans spoke about a major deal she was hoping to seal after her MTV contract was up. This must be the deal! Evans hasn’t opened up much more about the potential show so fans are not sure what format it will play on. However, one thing is for sure, there has been backlash. The photographer for the show, Penny Chevalley has come out and defend working with the controversial couple. “You don’t pay my bills. You don’t get to have an opinion on what I do. That’s the bottom line. That’s all I’m going to say on the subject,” said Chevalley. This may only be the beginning of the backlash.
