Jenelle Evans has been lashing out against Teen Mom 2 lately, as she hasn’t enjoyed the way she is portrayed on the reality show. After last week’s episode showed the couple fighting and refusing to film, Evans posted the following message on her Instagram account:
Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for. Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera 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?! I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show. I told 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 photo-shopping 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
Evans also stated:
I’ve blocked all my producers numbers. I will not stand for the negative s— anymore. I’ll be off social media for a while to be focusing on solely my family.
Though Evans has said she will be staying off of social media, just this evening, she posted a photo of herself on Instagram, promoting a tummy flattening product.
As for what other cast members think of Evans saying she will quit the show, Kailyn Lowry told People:
I think we all feel differently. I have to disagree with her statement about MTV. As far as I can see it, you wouldn’t have stuck with the show for eight years if that was the case, so I’ll leave that there. I don’t care what Jenelle does.
Lowry’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin also had opinions on Evans’ statements, telling Radar Online:
I feel like every girl has threatened to leave the show since we started this years ago. I hate when they say that because if you take out the doors that it opens, the money it provides, the house you’re living in, take all of that out and where would you be? … People need to be humble … You control your story.
On the show, Evans has married her husband David Eason and viewers have been watching her relationship with her mother Barb become extremely strained. In an interview with Us Weekly, Barbara said that her relationship with her daughter is “gone”. Barbara Evans was not invited to her daughter’s wedding and still has primary custody of Evans’ son Jace.
