According to a new report, We TV is about to lap up MTV's sloppy seconds.
And, the network hopes, a major bump in ratings as well.
As detailed in the slideshow above, Jenelle Evans has finally been fired from Teen Mom 2.
Rumors of this nature have been swirling for weeks and weeks, even before husband David Eason took everything to an extreme by, literally, murdering his family's dog.
Jenelle's screen time had already been reduced over the course of this past season because cameras couldn't film any time she was around Eason (who was fired last year for outwardly hating gay people)...
... but then Eason shot and killed his own pet and all Hell broke loose.
Sponsored fled from Teen Mom, co-stars confessed to being frightened of Eason and various outlets wondered about the safety of Jenelle's kids.
With so much negative attention on the series, MTV finally released a statement on Tuesday night that read as follows:
MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since.
Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.
Evans allegedly learned about her firing at the same time as the public, and she reacted by "crying" a lot, both E! News and Radar Online have claimed.
But TMZ now writes that Jenelle has a reason to smile once again.
Insiders tell the celebrity gossip website that Eason and Evans are all prepared to sign on for Marriage Boot Camp.
The We TV program has reportedly been after this controversial couple for years. Yes, seriously.
Obviously, both halves are now finally free from any other network contracts and prepared to work out their issues in front of a new set of reality TV cameramen.
Sounds totally healthy for them and like it will absolutely fix their relationship, doesn't it?
But Jenelle likely isn't thinking about her actual marriage here.
She's thinking about her family and how to keep feeding it.
“She is broke,” says an insider to Radar, adding the reality star “depends on that quarterly check from MTV."
Evans was banking somewhere in the six figures on an annual basis from her role on Teen Mom 2.
That's a huge haul, but let's remember two things:
- Jenelle has three young kids.
- We somehow doubt Jenelle and David manage their money well.
As a result of her alleged financial status, it's not surprising that Evans would be seeking out an immediate new project.
Nor, to be honest, is it surprising that Marriage Boot Camp would want the polarizing star.
It's just sad.
Still, ask yourself right now: Would you tune in to a season that featured a heavy dose of Evans and Eason discussing their romance? Probably, right?
As for how Jenelle's now-former colleagues feel about her dismissal?
"I want to sympathize for my former cast-mate, but at this point I can't," wrote Leah Messer as part of a lengthy Twitter thread. "Enough is enough!"
Randy Houska added that her firing was "far past due," claiming that the network really "drug their ass in doing it."
At the same time, the outspoken but level-headed father of Jenelle's co-star Chelsea Houska said what we're all thinking:
"I worry for the kids, and since we’ve been in this for 10 years together, I worry about Jenelle."
He's not the only one. Putting aside their issues with Evans, the cast has largel expressed deep concern.
