Jenelle Evans: Who Needs Teen Mom 2? I’ve Got a New Show!

Teen Mom 2 fans know that Jenelle could be fired any day now. Her awful husband David Eason was already fired and many wonder if MTV will continue filming Jenelle’s life without her husband

But it looks like Jenelle is already setting up another potential revenue stream.

Is she just being uncharacteristically careful, or … does this mean that she’s actually been fired?

Jenelle took to social media to share the good news with her followers.

Well … to share the news, anyway.

“I’m back! Check out new videos on my YouTube soon,” she wrote.

She followed it up with further details.

“The adventures start this Friday on 03/16/2018 at 8pm. Go subscribe now.”

Oh, and of course this image.

Social media users were quick to roast Jenelle, first zeroing in on the fact that Teen Mom 2 costar Kailyn Lowry also has a YouTube channel.

“Try harder to be Kail it’s hilarious.”

Some even brought memes into the mix.

“Damnnnnn Jenelle, back at it again with the copying @KailLowry.”

Obviously, comparisons between Jenelle and Kail are unfair.

As evidence when Kailyn slams Jenelle for the latter’s bigoted beliefs and actions, Kail is a much kinder and more accepting person than Hurricane Jenelle.

Also, one has to wonder if Kailyn could be as bad of a parent as Jenelle is if she tried.

David Eason was fired for his homophobic and transphobic Twitter tirade.

The strangest thing about that situation may be that he decided, of his own accord, to bring up and promptly condemn LGBT+ parents (for existing) in an attempt to deflect from his own parenting “inadequacies.”

And by “inadequacies,” we mean that he’s allegedly an abusive terror who shouldn’t be allowed around a pet rock, let alone a human child.

When David Eason lost the moral high ground to Farrah Abraham, a lot of fans knew that he was toast.

While David’s hardly Jenelle’s only bad choice — her personal history is a series of disastrous decisions, one after the other like rungs on a ladder — fans wonder if his bigoted tweets will end her career.

If Jenelle shares that fear — or if she already knows that she’s been fired and the rest of us just haven’t heard yet — that could definitely explain why she’s venturing onto YouTube.

Of course, if Jenelle is hoping to rake in that sweet, sweet Teen Mom money on YouTube … she may be in for a nasty surprise.

YouTube can turn streamers into millionaires, sure … but they’re the exceptions.

For starters, if you want to actually make money off of your YouTube channel to any real degree, it’s said that you need about a million subscribers. Minimum.

Not views, not likes. Subscribers.

Teen Mom may be a popular franchise, but Jenelle is just one star among many.

It’s unclear how many followers her YouTube channel, which has been sitting around gathering proverbial dust for years with barely more than 40,000 followers, is going to attract.

And it’s similarly unclear what Jenelle means by “off the grid.”

Is she going to be vacationing to exotic locales? Venturing into the wilderness? Both of those are expensive, especially for a busy mother. Not exactly ideal for someone who might get sacked from MTV.

Perhaps Jenelle should be venturing onto the “grid” at some point. She wouldn’t even need to leave her home state. She could visit cities or either of North Carolina’s world class universities and meet people who are different and come to understand and not fear them.

Maybe that “grid” just means MTV, and she’ll be “off” of it because she knows that she’s getting canned.

We’ll have to wait and see.


Amy Schumer: I’ve Been “Flat-Out Raped”

Amy Schumer has made a living joking about sex.

She even got VERY candid about giving her then-boyfriend a blow job last March.

But the comedian is very much aware that sexual assault is no laughing matter, and she’s here to tell her full story about an unfortunate past experience in this realm.

“I’ve been flat-out raped,” Schumer told Katie Couric this week for the reporter’s Wonder Women podcast series.

Such an admission marks the first time Schumer has used this word when describing her troubled history.

In her autobiography, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Schumer did write about how her first sexual encounter was NOT consensual.

She also opened up about the incident to Marie Claire in 2016, telling the magazine at the time:

“My first sexual experience was not a good one.”

Schumer told Howard Stern something similar that same year, saying she fell asleep one night alongside her high school boyfriend and woke up with him inside of her.

She did not press charges.

She even stayed with the boyfriend and found herself comforting him at times over what had happened.

“People, they want you to have been raped perfectly, and they want you to be a perfect victim,” Schumer told Stern, explaining how sexual assaults vary and the types of victims very.

At the end of the day, however, non-consensual sex is non-consensual sex.

“We’re so critical and it makes victims really not wanna speak up,” Schumer added.

That was in 2016.

Fast forward nearly two years and we’re in the middle of a #MeToo movement in which women are finally starting to feel empowered and in which sexual assault is at last being treated like the very serious issue that it is. 

Recalling this same incident with her high school boyfriend, Schumer told Couric:

“I didn’t think about it until I started reading my journal again.

“When it happened, I wrote about it almost like a throwaway. It was like, ‘And then I looked down and realized he was inside of me. He was saying, I’m so sorry and I can’t believe I did this.'”

She continued:

“This was 17 years ago. There are just so many factors. I had another time with a boyfriend where I was saying, ‘No, stop,’ and it was just completely ignored.”

Schumer now realizes that none of this was okay.

Moreover, Schumer says flat-out rape or assault is easy to identify.

But there are plenty of other situation that also require women to speak out and men to shape up.

“If you have a doctor that makes you uncomfortable, or you get a massage, or you have a date with someone and they coerce you in a situation like the Aziz [Ansari] one, I don’t think there’s any sort of criminal charge, but I think that it’s good for everybody to learn that that behavior’s not acceptable,” she says.

“It’s not a crime, but it’s not cool. And it can still really mess with a woman.”

In this case, Schumer is referring to Aziz Ansari being accused of sexual misconduct after going on a date with a woman who claims she repeatedly made it clear to the star that she did not want to go as far physically as he wanted to go.
