Jenelle Evans: If I Go Down, I’m Bringing the Whole Cast With Me!

Last week, the world learned that Jenelle Evans threatened a man with a gun following a road rage incident that very nearly ended in tragedy.

Not surprisingly, the news resulted in demands that Teen Mom 2 producers fire Jenelle from the show that made her famous.

It’s a move that fans and castmates have been calling for for years.

Jenelle’s instability might make her good for ratings, but her bigotry, affinity for violence, and tendency toward abusive behavior make her an affront to human decency.

Already, Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, has been fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of a bizarre homophobic tirade he posted on social media.

MTV might claim otherwise, but that decision appears to have been largely the result of pressure from people like Jeremy Calvert, who has not been shy about expressing his belief that Jenelle is bad for the show and bad for the network.

One might think that at this point, Evans would be doing her best to appease her bosses and co-workers.

But that would be the rational person’s course of action, so naturally, Jenelle is doing the exact opposite and antagonizing the very people who have the power to end her career.

Jenelle is taking her latest stand by threatening to boycott filming for the Teen Mom 2 reunion show, which is scheduled to take place in New York City on May 19.

A source tells Radar Online that Jenelle sees refusing to film (a tactic she employs often) as the most effective of way of making her producers and co-stars pay for what she considers insufferable mistreatment:

“She is ready for the confrontations but is really dreading all of them ganging up on her,” says one insider.

“Jenelle wants nothing to do with all of them,” the source continues.

“She is so tired of the girls and their guys and even their parents being mean to her, and she is not afraid to call them all out, but she doesn’t want to go to the reunion alone.”

Yes, it seems Jenelle is refusing to show up to the reunion unless David is allowed to join her.

But considering multiple Moms have stated that that don’t feel comfortable working with David after a bizarre incident in which he drunkenly stabbed some balloons with a knife at a cast party, you can be sure that producers won’t budge on that issue.

“Jenelle loves David. She supports him. She wants him to be at the reunion, but MTV has said absolutely not, no way,” says the source.

“She is trying to do everything she can to change their minds. She’s threatening not to show up, but she has to,” the insider continues.

Yes, it seems Jenelle is under the impression that she’s still in a position to take a stand on such issues.

Her inability to read the writing on the wall is almost impressive.

In the end, you can expect this conflict to play out exactly like every other clash between Jenelle and producers – she’ll stand her ground until she realizes that they’re serious about taking away her sole source of income, and then she’ll fold like a cheap suit.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of just how many times Jenelle has been down this road.


Amber Portwood Welcomes Son: First Pics & Cast Reactions!

Earlier this week, Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood welcomed a baby boy.

It's her second child, and the first for her baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.

Today, Amber released the first photos of little James Andrew Glennon (or JAG, as we like to call him), and fans can't get enough of her newest bundle of joy.

Amber's co-stars have also been gushing about baby James.

In fact, even Portwood's biggest rivals appear to have offered an olive branch in honor of the latest addition to the Teen Mom OG  family …


1. Amber Portwood and Son

Amber Portwood has welcomed a son. Little James Andrew Glennon is her second child, and the first for the baby’s father, Andrew Glennon.

2. Sweet Baby James!

Amber obviously couldn’t be happier about her new arrival. In pictures with little James, she’s positively beaming.

3. Leah and James

Leah tweeted this pic of her daughter, Leah, enjoying the company of her new little brother. “Big Sis and little James! She was so excited to meet her little brother!” Amber captioned the pic.

4. All the Support

Obviously, Amber hasn’t always been a fan favorite, but Teen Mom viewers have been outspoken in their love and support as she once again embarks down the path of motherhood.

5. The Name James, Though…

Some have expressed hope that Amber will begin referring to her child in less formal fashion, but it seems she’s sticking with “James.” We see their point – it’s a bit like meeting a baby girl named Karen – but it’s her prerogative.

6. Back to the Positive

But all that’s just nit-picking. For the most part, fans have had nothing but kind words for the growing Portwood-Glennon clan. In fact, Amber has received praise from some very unlikely sources …

Teen Mom 2 Cast to Producers: Fire Jenelle & Briana or We’re Done!

If you caught Monday night's Teen Mom 2 season premiere, you know that the series shows no signs of running out of steam in its ninth go-round.

(Okay, technically this is Season 8B, but the distinction is a purely legal one, intended to stave another round of contract negotiations with the cast.)

The debut episode had a little bit of everything – there was talk of shady hookups, allegations of horrendous parenting, and even the occasional glimpse of happy, functional couple (shoutout to the Houska-DeBoer clan).

But perhaps the biggest surprises came in a trailer that offered fans a preview of what's in store for the remainder of the season.

In fact, the montage contained so many shockers that certain members of the cast were downright stunned with what they saw …

1. The Ultimatum

Kailyn leah chelsea
The trailer for Teen Mom 2 Season 8B shows three of the moms sitting down with producers to discuss problems created by their two other cast members – Jenelle Evans and Briana DeJesus.

2. A Loaded Question

Kail has no sh ts to give
“So what do we do about Jenelle and Briana, so we don’t feel like we have to walk away from the show?” Kail asked her bosses.

3. The Quandary

The quandary
Obviously, Kail’s question puts the show’s producers in a tough spot. We’re sure they care about the cast’s safety and they’d surely love to kick Jenelle to the curb, but canning the most combustible castmembers can often spell the beginning of the end for an aging reality show.

4. Briana Was Not Thrilled

It’s hard to believe that anyone can keep a secret for several months in the age of social media, but apparently, Briana had no idea the meeting took place until she saw the trailer herself.

5. Thoughts From Bri

Briana confronts kail
In a now-deleted tweet, DeJesus expressed her shock that her castmates “had a meeting with the executives” about her. For emphasis, she added, “Holy f-cking sh-t lmao.”

6. Briana Drama, Part Bajillion

Briana is psyched
Of course, a possible confrontation with producers isn’t the only drama on the horizon for Briana this season. In fact, it seems she’s in for plenty of ups and downs…

Dancing with the Stars Athletes Season: Cast Revealed!

It seems like an athlete wins nearly every season of Dancing with the Stars, doesn't it?

Looking ahead to Season 26, however, we can say with absolute certainty:

An athlete WILL win Dancing with the Stars.

This is because the ABC competition will air a special four-week event in which only current and former athletes compete.

Pretty cool concept, right?

With the exception of the inclusion of a certain disgraced figure skater who almost definitely played a role in assaulting her main rival at the Olympics back in the 1990s.

Who are we talking about?

Who are the players set to take Dancing with the Stars field next season? Scroll down. Find out!

1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

The NBA’s all-time leading scorer will be paid with Lindsay Arnold as he attempts to dunk all over the competition.

2. Johnny Damon

Teamed with Emma Slater, the speedy ex-centerfielder will hope to run (and dance!) circles around all his ballroom foes.

3. Tonya Harding

Tonya Harding is going from the ice to the dance floor… and all other athletes would be well served to don knee braces all season long.

4. Adam Rippon

Adam Rippon will partner with Jenna Johnson as one of the only ice skater on Season 26 who did NOT try to take out a rival via physical assault.

5. Josh Norman

The NFL cornerback will have Sharna Burgess by his side when he tries to intercept the chances of anyone else to win this season.

6. Mirai Nagasu

We know Mirai Nagasu can do a triple lutz. But will she and Allen Bersten twirl their way to the Mirrorball Trophy?

The Real Housewives of Orange County: New Cast Revealed!

Being a Real Housewife means fame and one hell of a paycheck, but there’s a high turnover rate between seasons.

We’ve already reported who’s out in The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s latest cast shakeups — but who’s in?

Take a look!

We have new information about the RHOC cast, and it’s not about Shannon Beador’s divorce.

RadarOnline reports that Emily Moore Simpson is one of the new additions to the cast for this new season.

Emily Moore Simpson has actually been featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County before — or, at least, her company has.

She and her sister-in-law run a party-planning business, and they have a little “as featured on” banner on their site.

Emily is also a licensed attorney.

Apparently this erstwhile Ohio girl is a hit with some of her new costars, as RadarOnline reports that “Shannon and Kelly get along with Emily marvelously.”

Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd are, of course, part of the returning cast.

Gina Kirschenheiter is another new name.

She’s a little enigmatic, even for a newcomer.

But RadarOnline reports that she’s no stranger to the cast.

“Gina and Tamra have been friends for a very long time, and Tamra recruited her on the show.”

It’s also been whispered that Gina’s friend, Tatiana Beene, will also be joining the cast, but that isn’t even a little bit confirmed.

Lydia McLaughlin has quit the show … again. That’s her version, anyway.

She says that she quit because she can only handle one season at a time without feeling overwhelmed. Which is interesting, since rumor had suggested that her name was on Bravo’s chopping block.

Meghan King Edmonds quit RHOC, too.

She said that it’s because she’s pregnant and because IVF has really done a number on her. That may be so.

But there was a report that she got fired for trying to use her pregnancy to leverage more money out of producers. That would appear to have backfired.

Finally, Peggy Sulahian was ousted from the series.

It turns out that being an infamous homophobe who allegedly tried to have her own (gay) brother dragged out of their father’s funeral didn’t win her a lot of fans.

Also, she just did not make for good television.

We have to wonder how these new additions will shake up the dynamics on the show.

Shannon and Kelly are apparently really hitting things off with Emily.

And Tamra is already close to Gina.

Given the reports that Shannon and Tamra are feuding as part of the fallout of Shannon’s divorce, we could be seeing new Real Housewife factions forming already.

And how will Vicki Gunvalson, who is definitely returning, fit into all of this?

Technically, these new additions to the cast have yet to be officially confirmed.

Bravo has declined to comment on casting “rumors.”

But we should mention that Gina Kirschenheiter’s Instagram, which only goes back a few days — which you might expect from someone who created her Instagram in anticipation of becoming a reality star — features a hint.

Beside a makeup-free selfie, she wrote:

“First post as the ‘real gina kirschenheiter.'”

That strikes many as a major clue, if not an outright confirmation.


Farrah Abraham Sends Final Message to Teen Mom Cast

As many adult entertainment fans know well, Farrah Abraham has no problem with the backdoor.

But the long-time MTV personality has now been shown a door of a very different kind:

She’s been fired from Teen Mom OG.

Not only has the controversial parent been let go from this franchise, she’s already been replaced.

Sources tell The Hollywood Gossip that former Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee is already shooting episodes as the latest OG series regular.

How does Abraham feel about this development?

She previously told Us Weekly that the show will miss its “biggest star” and that she’s content to focus now on “scripted opportunities, taking a pretty high road for someone who has never been afraid to hurl some serious shade at producers and colleagues over the years.

And now Farrah has spoken out again about her departure.

Did she slam the living heck out of McKee or any of her veteran co-stars?

Not really, we’re very sad to report.

“I wish all the women of Teen Mom the best as their jealousy, hatred, and women-hating should stop and more so lift up and empower women,” Abraham told on Friday, adding:

“This show lacks [confidence], [security], honesty and integrity, which is why the adults of this show must be controlled and puppeteered by producers and staff.”

Not exactly a sweet parting shot.

But nothing like what Abraham has said in past about the series, either.

Speaking specifically to Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, Farrah said she hopes these women really take a long look in the mirror.

If not for themselves, then for their kids.

“The effect on their children is concerning,” she says. “I deeply hope the mothers and fathers take their children’s development and safety more serious.”

As someone who keeps nude photos of her young daughter on her phone, Farrah does know a thing or two about proper child development and treatment.

“As I start a new chapter, I wish all the families the best in safety and health,” she concluded in this interview, ending on as mature a note as she could muster.

Having seemingly accepted her fate, Farrah also sent a message to her haters and critics.

She knows they are out there. She knows they are waiting to jump on her every word and action.

But they can talk all the walk they want, she taunts; she’s out here walking the damn walk!

“To make a change in society, ‘see something say something,'” she explained here.

“Many [trolls] aren’t leaders and making world changes. I chose this life, I will always continue to make this world a better place above all the lies and attacks against me.”

What kind of legacy does Farrah think she has left?

Where does she rank herself among all time villains or favorites on MTV or even on other networks?

She didn’t say, exactly.

However, just like the erect penises of men who view her sex tape are pointing toward the ceiling, she is holding her head up high:

“I think I’ve done this better than most in reality TV.”


Farrah Abraham: Plotting Revenge on Teen Mom OG Cast?!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Farrah Abraham has been fired from Teen Mom OG after refusing to give in to producers’ demands that she stop performing in live sex shows.

There was a time when it was nearly impossible to imagine the show without its number one source of drama, but at this point, the Farrah firing is a done deal.

It was announced this week that Mackenzie McKee will replace Farrah as the show’s fourth cast member.

To further drive the nail in the coffin of her career, Farrah is suing her former employers for $ 5 million dollars, claiming that she was unfairly discriminated against and wrongfully terminated.

And now, it looks as though the situation is getting even uglier ahead of the TMOG reunion show taping set for this weekend.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Farrah revealed that she will not be in attendance at the taping:

“MTV is not allowing me to attend the reunion, and my dad won’t attend if I don’t go. I can’t speak for my mom,” she revealed to the tabloid.

That doesn’t mean, however, that Team Abraham will not be represented.

According to Us, MTV is hoping that Farrah’s parents, Michael Abraham and Debra Danielsen, will stop by the taping to offer their two cents.

But it seems Farrah has different ideas.

The Ashley’s Reality Roundup is reporting today that Farrah will have some spies in attendance at the reunion.

It’s been widely rumored that Farrah is plotting to sabotage the show in an effort to take revenge on the showrunners and cast members who she feels did her wrong.

Unfortunately for fans of off-camera drama, it seems Ms. Abraham doesn’t have anything quite that nefarious in mind.

“Farrah obviously won’t be there but someone she knows is going to attend the reunion, just to see what is said,” a source tells The Ashley.

“They’re just going to take it in, not to start any trouble or anything. The person is planning to stay under the radar.”

The source adds that Farrah’s reps will offer her a full report on the proceedings, but will not interfere with the taping:

“It’s all in good fun,” the source says, “nothing malicious.”
