Jenelle Evans never had a lot of friends within the Teen Mom franchise, but these days, she’s burning bridges like it’s her job — and in a way, we suppose it is.
As you surely recall, Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2 following a shocking instance of animal cruelty that also caused her to temporarily lose custody of her children.
David Eason shot and killed the family dog, traumatizing the hell out of his children in the process.
Jenelle chose to stand by her man, even though doing so led to the children being removed from the home and placed with relatives.
Following a lengthy legal battle, Jenelle regained custody of her kids earlier this month.
(Well, most of her kids — her eldest son Jace remains with his grandmother, who has raised the boy since infancy.)
She has not, however, regained her job with MTV, and it doesn’t appear that she’ll be doing so anytime soon.
And so Evans’ primary means of remaining relevant is posting unflattering clickbait articles and talking trash about her co-workers on social media.
To her credit — we suppose — she’s been fully devoting herself to that task in recent weeks.
In just the past few days, Jenelle essentially called Kailyn Lowry a bad mom by linking to an article that accuses her of endangering her youngest son’s life … with overly-hot bathwater.
It was as asinine as most of Jenelle’s behavior, but at least she got paid for it.
The same can’t be said of Evans’ weird attack against Leah Messer.
Leah is best friends with Jenelle, and as a result, she’s on Jenelle’s sh-t list.
A few years ago, Messer briefly lost custody of her kids when she hit a rough patch in her life during an already-ugly custody battle.
And now, Evans is shoving that fact in her face on Twitter.
Yes, Jenelle is deflecting blame by bringing up the past that Leah has worked hard to distance herself from.
It was a poorly-calculated move on Jenelle’s part, and the backlash was swift.
"So what, to take the heat off you throw someone else under the bus??" a fan tweeted.
"This proves you are childish af and can’t stand to see people doing better than you!"
The tweet received mostly pro-Leah responses, and eventually, Ms. Messer herself chimed in:
“She’s gotta pin her troubles on someone… why not it be me?” Leah tweeted.
“Worry about what’s good for you and those babies Jenelle. Stop attacking people on social media.”
It was a perfect response — scathing, but level-headed — and Leah seems to have done the impossible by actually shutting Jenelle up.
Thus far, there’s been no response from Evans, who appears to have seen the error of her ways.
Leah should really teach a class on this, or something.
