Jenelle Evans took less than an hour to be told: “You look amazing” today. The former “Teen Mom 2” star – who has been body-shamed up the wazoo this year – proved she’s got zero time on her watch for the hate on Saturday, also reminding her 2.9 million followers just how good a Walmart bikini looks on her. Jenelle, 28, revealed her peachy-tan and scalloped bikini to be from the retail giant last week – Instagram had no clue she was going to post a mega-batch of rubber ducky pool photos and a video, though.
And Jenelle might well have a point. The mom of three’s photos today came sun-drenched, straight from a pool, and complete with the giant yellow rubber ducky floatie Jenelle was seen bobbing around on and – in the video – having a splash with. The JE Cosmetics founder, who admitted to gaining some weight this year, had her stunning curves on show alongside some pretty impressive abs, with the cute and feminine bikini doing wonders for her summer body. Scroll for more photos and the video.
A caption from Jenelle read: “This as good as it gets, take it or leave it #PoolDay #Confidence #BeYou ✨??.” The post, clocking over 10,000 likes in an hour, seemed to bring in a positive response for the girl whose yoga pants TikTok videos and poolside bikini dances have repeatedly seen her shamed – although Jenelle claps back. “I LOVE YOUR SWIMSUIT ♥️??,” one fan wrote, with another saying: “You look healthy and happy…don’t listen to people?.” A few users seemed to think the third photo had Jenelle sucking in her stomach, but the vibe wasn’t hateful. There was also the video, although that did bring in some shade.
The video, below, which racked up over 100,000 views in its first hour did, once again, bring out a far more positive response overall than has been the case for Evans in the past – “Pool floaters always punk people ?? Pool looks sooo refreshing though!!!! Have fun with your babies girl! ???,” one fan wrote. But someone always has to ruin it.
“Maybe if she lose weight she can stay on the duck,” one user hurtfully wrote. Jenelle is also fresh from being told that her face looks like a jalapeño pepper.
Jenelle is currently fronting media outlets for a high-profile racism storm that sees her accused of being “racist” by “Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant” star Ashley Jones, alongside an eyebrow-raising Facebook comment that read: “Well while all of you are rioting and destroying your precious cities, I’ll be far far away on my boat away from all of you.”
Jenelle then made headlines for addressing her silence over the murder of black man George Floyd: “I would appreciate if you guys would stop calling me a racist because I haven’t [spoken] out yet,” she said.
