Jenelle Evans is, without a doubt, one of the most controversial figures in the history of reality television.
She’s been accused of all manner of unsavory conduct over the course of her decade in the spotlight, but through it all, she’s maintained that anyone who really wants to know the truth about her life can get the straight facts from one source and one source only — Jenelle Evans.
To her credit, Jenelle has proven her honesty and consistency by admitting to behavior that would have left many reality stars hiding behind their publicists.
Recently, Jenelle briefly lost custody of her children in response to allegations that her husband, David Eason, shot and killed the family dog without reason.
Now, she’s speaking with The Hollywood Gossip exclusively about the shocking allegation that she lied to police and faked her dog’s death as a publicity stunt.
It’s an appalling charge, and not surprisingly, Evans is eager to clear her name.
Here’s what she had to say in our exclusive interview:

Following a series grueling custody hearings, Jenelle’s kids have been returned to her. But she’s still on trial in the court of public opinion.

After weeks of legal wrangling, a family court judge dismissed David and Jenelle’s case, and Ensley, Kaiser, and Maryssa were back on The Land in time for Fourth of July weekend.
3. Together Again
In photos shared exclusively with The Hollywood Gossip, Jenelle documents a life of quiet domesticity — her children bonding with their parents, with one another, and with the animals that make up such a crucial part of life on the Eason homestead. But it wasn’t easy to get back to this point …

Back in April, it was reported that Jenelle’s beloved French bulldog Nugget was shot and killed by David after the dog allegedly became aggressive with the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Ensley.
5. Domino Effect
This alleged act resulted in a CPS investigation which caused Jenelle and David’s children to be removed from their home.
6. Jenelle’s Version
From the start, Jenelle maintained that she was irate with David for killing the dog, but forgave him with the understanding that his actions were prompted by a concern for his daughter’s safety,
