After reaching her “breaking point” filming around her husband, Evans asks producers to let her shoot with (or at least near) David.
MTV publicly cut ties with Jenelle Evans after her husband, David Eason, killed her dog … but, judging by Monday night’s season finale, she may not have returned for the next season of "Teen Mom 2" in the first place.
All season long, production has refused to film in North Carolina, after Eason threatened producers saying he’d show up and jump in front of the cameras. As a result, Evans was only filmed for the show when she made trips outside the state without her husband. Eason was previously fired for making homophobic and transphobic comments on social media.
In one of her two limited appearances in the finale, Evans vented to a friend about the situation as she made her way home from a trip to Florida.
"I’m gonna have to talk to MTV about what the future’s gonna hold," she said. "I don’t know if they would accept [David’s] apology if he did apologize again."
Evans also acknowledged that her husband just has to "shut up" sometimes and express his frustrations to her, not to the show’s producers.
"He knows how I feel about that shit," she said. "[Producers] see how much trouble it is right now, that’s just how it’s gonna continue to be, something needs to change. At some point, we can keep arguing about it, either I’m gonna give up or they’re gonna give up, that’s how it’s gonna end up."
Later in the show, Evans — via speakerphone — had a conversation with four of the show’s producers about that. "David apologized for the texts he sent threatening to shut down production," a slate explained. "Following this, Jenelle communicated her concerns about traveling to the producers. They agreed to discuss."
Speaking over the phone, Evans said she didn’t want to travel to film anymore.
"I have David that doesn’t want me to go on trips, then I have you guys that want me to go on trips. I have everyone pulling a limb on me some sort of f–king way and I’m really at my breaking point," she explained.
"You guys are literally going from we can’t film with David to come a little bit further, come a little bit further, here’s more rules, here’s more rules, here’s more rules," she continued. "It doesn’t matter who I talk to about this situation, they’re like, ‘Can David do this and then they film you at a restaurant?’ Nope. ‘Can you go out of town and David stays at an Airbnb and they film you somewhere else?’ Nope. Literally, it’s like, ‘Can you do this, can you do that’ and they say, ‘No, no, no, no, no.’ They tell me no to everything and there’s nothing I can do about it."
One of the producers explained that their "hands are really tied" after Eason threatened them over text. "The text message really put this over the edge," she said. "A threat in writing is really difficult to walk back from."
Another producer said they appreciated David’s apology, but added his initial threat was hard to walk back. "Nobody wants to be around for the first time" Eason shows up, he added.
"None of us want to force you to choose between David and the show, but I’m hearing you say it’s about you’re not willing to get on a plane to travel without David right now," another producer interjected.
"When any ‘Teen Mom’ couple goes and travels, they bring whoever they’re married to," Evans responded. "I don’t have that option and I’m not comfortable doing that. It’s causing issues."
A producer explained that he understood her frustration and had "a lot of compassion" for her situation, adding that it makes it "hard" for all parties involved to tell her story. "You guys are the ones who are refusing to film, not me," Evans shot back.
"If MTV, if they come back and say we’re not gonna be able to film with Jenelle for ‘Teen Mom 2’," one producer said, trailing off. "Like I said, I don’t know what to tell you guys," Jenelle cut in. "I need to stay home because it’s important to me right now, my marriage and my family."
That was the last viewers heard from her on what is very likely her last full episode of the show outside of the upcoming reunion.
"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," MTV said in a statement following the shooting incident. "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."
It seems like that date may have been for the upcoming reunion special, which will air next week on MTV. During a preview for the episode, Evans is seen on set in NYC telling Dr. Drew "I’m done, you got your show" and walking out, as she exclaims, "Get me the f–k outta here."
"Teen Mom 2" airs Mondays on MTV.
