The stars of the Teen Mom/Teen Mom 2 franchises are reportedly getting nervier by the day.
During the last season of Teen Mom OG, Amber Portwood pitched a social media fit against what she viewed as a bad edit, and now Jenelle Evans has supposedly thrown the mother of all hissy fits.
According to a source, Jenelle threw a monumental tantrum, halting production of the messy MTV hit. Supposedly, Jenelle “told he producers that they capitalize on all her drama and she was sick of it.”
“In the promos for the show, they always show happy moments for the other girls with their kids, but she said if it was a promo involving her it’s all drama and stuff that makes her look bad,” the source explained.
“So Jenelle put her foot down. She had a huge fight with the team and told them she was not going to film anything else. She was ready to walk away from the show,” said the insider.
The insider claims that Jenelle got her way, after blasting the production team.
“She was so mad,” the snitch dished. “She said they never show any of the good peaceful stuff or give her ANY positive time at all. Like that trip to Florida, all they featured was her bashing Nathan.”
“Jenelle made them rearrange editing,” the source said. “So the last two episodes have been better for her. She even made them delete some of the things that had been put on social media that were negative about her. She just refused to film until they fixed some things.”
Jenelle had the very same complaint last year — ranting and raving against MTV’s direction and portrayal of her story. Jenelle threatened to walk last season — but did not. Amber Portwood backtracked almost immediately, after recently threatening to quit. Kailyn Lowry was allegedly peeved that MTV filmed her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, behind her back. A recently aired behind-the-scenes episode revealed Leah Messer melting down over how editors were splicing her footage. Teen Mom OG veteran, Tyler Baltierra, exposed MTV on Twitter, for adding images and comments out of context.
So what gives? MTV foots their bills — but the post-teen divas call the shots? The Florida vacation scenes with Jenelle and her boyfriend were sleepy throwaways — and few fans care about watching belching car rides, or boring hillbilly banter.
Do you believe that any of these girls will make good on their manipulative and repetitive threats? Who will pay for their pet food and tattoos?
Teen Mom 2 airs on Monday nights, on MTV.
