Teen Mom 2 Ratings Plummet: Can Jenelle Evans Save the Show?

Jenelle Evans has told followers that she’s ending her very effed up marriage to David Eason.

But while fans think through the consequences of this decision and even give Evans props for finally arriving at it, they must also now deal with a brand new rumor:

Jenelle Evans may be embarking on a brand new beginning with Teen Mom 2.

According to a new report, the once unthinkable notion of re-hiring Evans is at least being thought about by MTV executives, as they deal with a major drop in the show’s ratings and interest.

Just how bad has it gotten? And could this actually come to fruition?

Scroll down for some facts and some speculation…

1. She’s Outta There!

Jenelle evans cant believe you
It took a very long time, but MTV finally came to its sense in May 2019 when it fired Evans from Teen Mom 2, doing so after the troubled star’s husband, David Eason, shot and murdered their family dog. This actually happened.

2. MTV Had Already Fired Eason, Of Course

Said the network in a statement this past spring, referencing how it had ended its affiliation with Eason over his many instances of homophobia: “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.”

3. How Did Evans Handle The Firing?

Not terribly at the time. “I was a little bit shocked but I saw it coming,” she told Us Weekly afterward. “It’s shocking still but I respect their decision and have nothing but love for MTV. This is a new chapter for me and my family. I will continue to try what’s best for me and my family.”

4. More From Evans:

“David has been here for me since the news broke, he told me to not worry about it and to stay positive,” she added in May. “I’m keeping busy and staying focused on my kids and my animals and my business endeavors which have been planned for months. I’m working to fix my marriage as well and moving forward.”

5. Who Was Brought in to Replace Jenelle?

Jade Cline. She debuted in September 2019 by arguing a lot with her baby daddy, which would make it seem like she’s fitting in very well, right?

6. Jade Certainly Thinks So

“I wouldn’t consider myself a replacement,” Cline told TMZ this fall. “I think I have a good storyline and my story is really relatable to people. I’m just raw with my story so I hope people really relate to it.”

Jenelle Evans: Does She Deserve Sympathy as David Eason’s Victim, or Condemnation For Endangering Her Children?

As you’ve likely heard by now, Jenelle Evans filed for divorce from David Eason last month.

Not only that, Evans has been granted a restraining order against Eason after accusing him of issuing threats and abusing her children.

We probably don’t need to tell you that Jenelle has never been terribly popular among Teen Mom 2 viewers, and that was especially true in the months before she was fired from the show.

She spent several years defending David and enabling his abuse of children and animals.

And, of course, Jenelle has faced countless accusations of neglect and abuse and bigotry — not the kind of behavior that tends to earn the affection of reality TV audiences.

But now, we know that Evans was a victim herself, a fact that no doubt influenced her actions, at least during her time with David.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that there’s a debate raging on social media over whether or not Jenelle is deserving of sympathy.

We’ll present both arguments, and you can decide for yourself if she’s an victim, a perpetrator, or some untidy combination of both:

1. How Do You Solve a Problem Like Jenelle?

Jenelle evans is sad
Jenelle Evans is one of the most widely-despised reality stars in the history of the genre. But will the fact that she recently escaped an abusive relationship earn her any sympathy from her harshest critics?

2. Escape From the Land

In October, Evans made a daring escape from the home she once shared with David Eason — the property the former couple famously dubbed “The Land.”

3. October Surprise

On Halloween, Jenelle revealed on Instagram that she had left David and begun the process of divorcing him.

4. End of a (Very Brief) Era

David eason wife
“With the time I took away from Teen Mom, I’ve started looking at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting now,” Jenelle wrote.

5. Better Late Than Never

“The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today, I have filed papers to start that process,” she continued.

6. For the Kids

Again bringing the focus back to her children, Jenelle wrote, “Like anyone else, I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy.”

David Eason to Jenelle Evans: You’re Bad In Bed and I’m Gonna Tell the World Your Secrets!

From the moment we learned that Jenelle Evans had filed for divorce from David Eason, we knew the situation would eventually turn ugly.

But we never predicted things would get this bad this quickly.

Last week, Jenelle was granted a restraining order against David after presenting evidence of abuse and death threats in family court.

Apparently, Eason was caught off guard by this development, and — as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out — he’s now lashing out at Jenelle on social media.

Given how much is at stake, we thought David might actually keep his mouth shut for once in hope of ensuring the best possible outcome in court.

It seems we gave him a bit too much credit — which is surprising, as we really don’t give the guy much credit at all. For anything. Ever.

Here’s the latest on this increasingly frightening situation:

 

1. Exes at War

Jenelle evans and david eason on july 4
David Eason is going on the attack again. And this time, the target is his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Jenelle Evans.

2. Thirtieth Time’s the Charm

Jenelle and david sittin on a porch
Jenelle and David have separated many times over the course of their 2-year marriage. So perhaps David thought this would be just another temporary split. Clearly, Jenelle has something more permanent in mind.

3. Free at Last

Jenelle has fled the property she once shared with David, and she’s now safely living in a different state with two of her three children. (Her eldest, Jace, is believed to be living with his grandmother.)

4. His Old Tricks

Je split 11
When Jenelle first left him, David threw one of his signature social media tantrums, but then he quieted down for a few days. It was widely assumed that his legal team had cautioned him against airing his grievances in a public setting.

5. The Illusion of Sanity

De fb 9
For a day or two, David did his best to feign normalcy, posting pics of activities he and his daughter, Maryssa, had enjoyed in Jenelle’s absence.

6. Good Times?

Maybe David just trotted his daughter out as a prop. Maybe the two of them have genuinely been enjoying each other’s company since Jenelle’s been gone. Tough to say. All we know for sure is that the period of ostensible normalcy was short-lived, and David is back aboard the crazy train.

Farrah Abraham to Jenelle Evans: Girl, Your Life SUCKS!

You know things have gotten bad when even Farrah Abraham is looking at you with pity in her eyes.

Granted, Farrah is delusional, and she thinks her life is awesome, so she might look down on a lot of people who are actually doing just fine.

But when Abraham offers words of sympathy and support for Jenelle Evans, they’re well-deserved.

As you’ve likely heard, Jenelle has filed for divorce from David Eason amid abuse allegations.

And now, it seems she’s found an unlikely ally in fellow disgraced Teen Mom alum Farrah.

Of course, Farrah being Farrah, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to throw a little shade at her ex-rival when commenting on the situation this week.

Take a look:

1. Better Days

Jenelle evans and farrah abraham
It wasn’t all that long ago that Farrah and Jenelle were both raking in six-figure salaries thanks to their cushy gigs at MTV. Both ladies also supplemented their income with side ventures such as sponsored content partnerships.

2. Hard Times

Farrah strikes a pose
These days, however, both moms are out of work and increasingly desperate for cash. Farrah was the first to be let go, having been fired from the network back in December of 2017.

3. An Interesting Career Path

Farrah abraham vivid
MTV execs justified the decision by claiming that Farrah had violated her contract by continuing to perform in adult webcam shows. But in reality, they were probably just sick of dealing with her diva nonsense.

4. The Nugget Affair

Jenelle evans and nugget
Jenelle was next to get canned. And her termination took place under even more bizarre circumstances. The situation involved the death of a beloved pet at the hands of Evans’ famously short-tempered husband.

5. Devastation

David with nugget
David shot and killed Jenelle’s French bull dog, Nugget. The act of senseless violence led to a CPS investigation that caused her to temporarily lose custody of her children.

6. Not Great

Jenelle helped David hide his crime from police, and she defending him in public, even claiming at one point that he was not involved with the dog’s death.

David Eason on Jenelle Evans: She’s a Loose Liar and She’s Going DOWN!

So, how about that Jenelle Evans divorce, huh?

It’s been nearly two weeks now since the longtime Teen Mom 2 terror announced the big news that she’d left David Eason.

So, so very much has happened since.

Some of it has been nice, don’t get us wrong. It’s great that she’s able to spend time with Nathan Griffith for their son’s sake.

Most of it has just been an absolute dumpster fire, however, and given that this is Jenelle, we can’t say we’re surprised.

And speaking of garbage, you simply have to see David’s latest statements about her, because they’re pretty abhorrent.

Honestly, this situation is bound to get worse before it gets better, no matter how hard she tries to get back on Teen Mom 2.

Take a look below and see what we mean.

1. What a Mess

David eason eff you
Man … where do we even begin with this mess? Amazingly, these two have been an item for over four years at this point. It feels like a lifetime … a lifetime full of terror.

2. So Much History

Jenelle evans just chills
If you want to start at the very beginning, we could take it the way back in 2015 when Jenelle met David on Tinder and started dating him.

3. Ah, Memories

Jenelle eason david eason
Or we could skip forward just a little bit, since it didn’t take too long for David’s horrible history to come out – the gruesome twosome had barely started dating when his alleged history of emotional and physical abuse came to light.

4. So Many Possibilities

Jenelle evans david eason and barbara evans
Or we could start by talking about when David first began showing Jenelle all of his many, many red flags – you remember, when he started putting a whole lot of strain on every other relationship she had, even the one with her son’s father and her own mom?

5. It Never Ends

Jenelle evans cant believe you
There are so many places we could start today’s story – with Jenelle’s 911 call from last year, when she first admitted he was abusing her, or with the many abuse allegations from Nathan and his own mother in regards to Kaiser, or with Nugget’s death and the battle with CPS that followed.

6. Here We Go

Jenelle and david sittin on a porch
But instead, let’s just focus on the most recent developments and kick things off with Jenelle leaving David a few weeks ago. Evans went all the way to New York, all by herself. Why was this so significant?

Jenelle Evans: Back with Nathan Griffith? Struggling to Rebuild Her Reputation? [UPDATED]

It’s been a very, very busy time for Jenelle Evans these past few weeks.

You know, what with filing for divorce from David Eason and all.

She’s left all her belongings behind to move herself and the two children she has custody of to a whole new state, she’s gathered proof of David’s abuse and filed a restraining order against him.

All that sounds like a ton of work, even when you don’t consider how taxing it all must have been emotionally for the Teen Mom 2 firebrand – whatever you think of her personally.

But still, even though Jenelle’s been doing all of that, she still found some time to spend with Nathan Griffith, the father of her middle child, Kaiser, and sworn enemy of David.

Why are they reconciling? What is her endgame? And can she possibly rekindle that romance and salvage whatever is left of her reputation after all she’s said and done?

Let’s break it down below.

1. Jenelle and Nathan

Nathan griffith jenelle evans selfie pic
Okay, so yeah, this isn’t a current picture of Jenelle and Nathan … because there aren’t many. They haven’t had the opportunity to take a photo together for the past few years because their breakup was pretty messy, and because David is the worst.

2. Gross

David eason wife
Jenelle and David first started dating like a month after she and Nathan broke off their engagement and relationship, and it seems like David’s always been super insecure about that, to the point where Jenelle simply wasn’t allowed to speak with him.

3. Ridiculous and Terrifying

Jenelle evans and david eason in ny
We’ll never forget an early appearance of David Eason on Teen Mom 2 where he went with Jenelle to meet with Nathan to discuss custody stuff … he was so mad that he threatened to “fill this whole street with uppercut.” Yes, that happened.

4. So Immature

Nathan griffith shirtless photo
Shortly after that, he decided that Jenelle wasn’t allowed to communicate directly with Nathan, even though she shared a small child with him. Instead, he’d be the one to deal with Nathan when it came to Kaiser.

5. Poor Kaiser

Kaiser enters kindergarten
And speaking of Kaiser, many fans believe that David was allegedly abusive towards him because he does look so much like his dad — more on all that in just a moment though.

6. Setting the Stage

Jenelle eason david eason
So we’ve established that David has always hated Nathan, right? Good, let’s move on to the next part of this story.

Nathan Griffith to Jenelle Evans: THANK YOU For Finally Leaving David!

Well, better late than never, right?

Last week, Jenelle Evans announced that she had left David Eason and removed her kids from the home she once shared with her ex.

It’s a development Teen Mom 2 fans had been hoping for for years, but perhaps no one was more relieved to hear the news than Nathan Griffith.

Nathan’s son Kaiser had been living with the Easons, and Nathan had good reason to be deeply concerned.

No one is safe living with David, least of all a 5-year-old whom Eason has taken a particular dislike to.

For now, Kaiser is safe — and it seems Nathan will do anything in his power to help the boy stay that way.

Take a look:

 

1. Healthy, By Comparison

Nathan griffith jenelle evans selfie pic
Jenelle and Nathan’s relationship was brief, and often very ugly. But compared to her relationship with David, they were the ideal couple.

2. Concerned For Kai

Nathan and kaiser being tough
Throughout Jenelle and David’s 2-year marriage, Nathan openly expressed concerns for his son’s safety and accused David of child abuse.

3. Legitimate Suspicion

The eason family
Very few people doubted that Nathan’s suspicions were well-founded, except, seemingly, for Jenelle, who accused him of lying about discovering bruises on Kaiser the size and shape of an adult’s hand.

4. Window of Opportunity

When David shot and killed Jenelle’s dog back in May, Nathan seized the opportunity to move his son to a safer environment.

5. Silver Lining

The shooting led to a CPS investigation which caused the Easons to temporarily lose custody of their kids, all of whom were sent to live with relatives.

6. A Change For the Better

Kaiser was sent to live with Nathan, who was sharing a home with his mother and fiancee at the time.
