The Teen Mom franchise has just backfired when star Jenelle Evans now threatens to quit the show due to how negative her storyline appears all the time on her show. She’s not happy with the way she’s being portrayed.
According to Wetpaint Entertainment, Jenelle’s producer, Moragn J. Freeman, is now speaking out about the accusations, trying to let people know that her accusations are unfounded. It seems like Jenelle is getting the truth from her long-time producer despite the fact that he has been friends with the teen mom cast for a long time.
“There is a huge difference between documenting and promoting,” Morgan reveals on Twitter about the Teen Mom drama, revealing that they document the lives of these girls, don’t push their own ideas onto them, and don’t promote opinions to change the content of the show.
The odd thing though is that the Teen Mom producers do not step in when things get to be too much, according to the Inquisitr. Evans’ drug use has been shown on the show, and she is constantly yelled at by her mother over the phone, in front of the children. However, Evans claims that the Teen Mom director isn’t on her side, feeling that the show wants to promote her story as negative in order to receive views.
“I’m pretty convinced MTV constantly wants to make me look like the most horrible mother ever,” said Evans according to Us Weekly. “Doesn’t show a damn positive thing for my story.”
In one of the most recent episodes of Teen Mom though, Jenelle seems to be going through a lot of custody battles over her children, with her previous ex Griffith having signed an agreement where he will have his son every other weekend. Now they are just waiting on the courts to sign and approve of the papers. She claiming though that her story is being perceived as completely negative because of what she’s going through, exposing her to judgement and criticism from her friends, family, and outside viewers. Her producers however disagree.
“Sometimes having more eyes on a situation is inherently safer than none. Do your homework,” her producer continues, adding, “You are the eyes. This is the process. We document what is happening. We are not parents. We are not police. We do open up powerful discourse about many many things. That is good.”
Evans wants MTV to focus on her custody battle on Teen Mom. She wants them to document the fact that she’s gotten an education, that she’s qualified to get a job, and that she’s working hard on getting custody back of her first-born son, Jace. Let’s hope that her custody battle will overpower all the negative feedback.
“And this season and this upcoming ones were suppose to be really nice and smooth towards the end but of course if MTV hires a director that judges you, hates you, and wants to make you look out to be bad… They will do it,” the Teen Mom star continued, adding, “They hold all power in the edit room.”
