Briana DeJesus Opens Up About Javi, Jenelle Evans, And That Kiss With Her Mom

When Teen Mom 2 producers made the decision to add Briana DeJesus to the cast of their wildly popular series, fans weren't quite sure what to expect.

Briana was one of the stars of the short-lived Teen Mom 3, but it had been four years since she appeared on camera.

As it turns out, however, the masterminds behind the franchise knew exactly what they were doing.

In her short time as part of the cast, Briana has helped raise the drama on TM2 to previously unimaginable heights.

Whether it's her ongoing feud with Kailyn Lowry or her rocky relationship with Javi Marroquin, Briana consistently gives fans something to talk about.

And now, she's talking with The Hollywood Gossip about some of the most memorable moments from the show's wildest season to date.

1. Briana Drama

Briana on the gram
Shortly after joining the cast, Briana distinguished herself as one of the most indispensable members of the Teen Mom 2 family. Fans learned early on that Bri was not one to back down from a conflict — or shy away from a little drama.

2. Delivering the Goods

This season alone, Briana got out of a relationship with one of her castmates’ exes, went under the knife for plastic surgery, and ignited the most memorable feud in the show’s history.

3. Spilling the Tea

Bri recently spoke with The Hollywood Gossip and opened up about her feelings on her love life, her castmates, and this rollercoaster of a season.

4. Surgical Summer

As documented on recent episodes, Briana underwent a cosmetic procedure in Miami last year, and the situation tore at the fabric of her relationship with Javi Marroquin.

5. Nurse Dre

Javi lost it upon realizing that Bri would be nursed back to health by her ex-boyfriend, Dre, but DeJesus says that was a complete overreaction.

6. Forget About Dre

“I definitely think Javi overreacted because Dre is just a friend, nothing more,” Briana tells THG. “That’s all it is — friendship. There is nothing romantic there.”

Jenelle Evans Risks Her Son’s Life In Terrifying Road Rage Incident

Several months ago, reports of an insane road rage incident involving Jenelle Evans began to circulate online.

As time went on, the rumors got more and more ridiculous, to the point that they would have been impossible to believe — if this were anyone other than Jenelle Evans we were talking about.

Sources claimed Jenelle pulled a gun and chased the other driver to his home.

They said there was a standoff at the man's house that could have turned deadly.

And perhaps most shocking of all, witnesses revealed that Jenelle risked the life of her son Jace, who was riding shotgun the entire time.

Now, we're seeing footage of the incident for the first time, and it seems the chase was every bit as terrifying as we'd been told:

1. Jenelle and Jace on the Road

We now know that Jace Evans was seated next to his mother while she pursued another driver during a shocking road rage incident. Footage from the altercation has left fans stunned.

2. Her Story

Jenelle raging on the road
Jenelle says another driver cut her off, and she became irate due to the fact that he could have killed her son. So being the reasonable creature that she is, Jenelle responded by further endangering Jace.

3. Keeping Mum

Jenelle has mostly kept silent about the incident, presumably for legal reasons.

4. Angry Evans

But she’s hinted that fans will learn the truth once MTV releases footage of the incident.

5. Along For the Ride

Yes, a presumably frightened Teen Mom 2 camera crew was in tow and managed to capture most of the incident on camera.

6. Judgement Day

Now, the big day has finally arrived. Does the video evidence exonerate Jenelle or condemn her? Check it out and decide for yourself …

Jenelle Evans: New Evidence of Child Abuse Shocks Fans!

Over the years, Teen Mom 2 fans have watched in stunned horror as Jenelle Evans ranted, raved, and terrified her love ones with her infamous temper.

But as shocking as Jenelle's tantrums have been, it's possible that the greatest threat to her children's health and safety is not Evans' anger, but rather her negligent tendencies.

In the past week, several new pieces of evidence have emerged which seem to indicate that Jenelle is not performing the basic duties that the law expects of her as a mother.

The outcry from those who follow her on social media has been intense, and many believe Evans is soon to lose custody of her children.

1. One Bad Mom

Peace jenelle evans
Over the past two weeks, video evidence of Jenelle neglecting her kids coupled with some truly repugnant behavior on Teen Mom 2 has led fans to the conclusion that it’s time for CPS to intervene.

2. Couldn’t Care Less

Of course, Jenelle claims there’s no cause for concern, but that’s always her response to fan outrage.

3. All In a Day’s Work

Jenelle and her pills
On the show, Jenelle received a visit from the local sheriff in response to child abuse claims. Viewers were shocked, not only because Evans refused to allow him in the house, but also because she apparently keeps dozens of pill bottles within reach of children.

4. Effing Up in Real Time

Jenelle and sons
But while her behavior on TV has been predictably appalling, many viewers believe Jenelle recently became her own worst enemy by posting even worse evidence of her own shoddy parenting on social media.

5. Pool Crisis

It all started when Jenelle began posting photos of her backyard pool. Many fans noted that she had failed to comply with local laws by erecting a fence around then pool.

6. The Fenceless

Jenelle seemed unconcerned and continued posting pics like this one that show her lounging near a fence-free pool. But, of course, the most damning evidence was yet to come …

Jenelle Evans Endangers Son’s Life in Horrific New Video

Jenelle Evans … doesn’t the girl ever need a break from being just the absolute worst?

Like, shouldn’t there be at least a few days out of the year when she goes “Man, maybe I should just chill today and take some naps instead of actively trying to make myself look like the biggest jackass in all the Carolinas”?

You’d think so — it really does seem like it would be tiring — but you’d think wrong.

Jenelle has proven time and time again that she has the stamina and the know-how to be awful every minute of every day, and with this new little scandal, she’s doing just that.

See, there’s been a whole lot of focus on her pool lately, what with all the talk about her lack of a pool fence and the possible legal ramifications she may face for being dumb about it

There’s also been a whole lot of focus on Kaiser, what with the most recent round of abuse allegations and CPS investigations.

So considering that, it just makes sense that Jenelle would feel like sharing a video featuring both Kaiser and the pool, both perfectly safe, would be the thing to do.

But alas, it was not, because Jenelle shared this video instead.

The video shows Kaiser jumping into the shallow end of the pool, without a life jacket or floaties or an adult catching him.

In her caption, Jenelle explained that “Now that Kaiser can swim, he loves to throw in his toys and dive!”

Which is sweet, and we’re glad he seems to be having a good time, but still, the video is just a little bit terrifying.

Kaiser is clumsy in his diving — you know, because he just turned four — and the way he jumps in, it really looks like he could be badly hurt.

And while David Eason is creeping nearby, it still looks like the poor kid flounders a little too long before working his way back up to the surface.

Maybe we’re making a big deal out of nothing though, right?

Maybe this is just how lots of people get their kids feeling comfortable with swimming.

But if we’re wrong about how scary this is, then most of the commenters on the video are wrong too.

“How deep is that?” one of her followers asked. “Cause I just saw an almost broken neck there. Jesus Christ.”

“Probably be a good idea not having him dive straight down at the shallow end …” another person pointed out.

Many, many people told her that he shouldn’t be diving straight down at the shallow end of the pool, and several insisted that he could have broken his neck, too.

The video even earned some criticism from her actual fans — one wrote “Normally I would think everyone was just being a crybaby but that jump did make my heart sink. Sorry!”

“I’m not one to really care what someone else is doing with their own child, but this made me say ‘OMG’ out loud,” another normally chill person told her.

This outrage was enough for Jenelle to do one of her traditional early morning Twitter rants, so you know it hit home.

Over there, someone tried to tell her how dangerous diving into the shallow end is, but you know she didn’t listen.

“Yeah so let me have Kaiser dive in the deep end where he can’t swim?” she responded. “You need to recheck your common sense.”

It was suggested that perhaps she didn’t let him dive in at all, but she said “Why not?! We are scuba divers… why wouldn’t we want Kaiser to learn that?! Wow, lol.”

And then when a follower said that perhaps Kaiser should learn to swim better before getting into diving, she replied “Lmfao he knows how to swim….”

Which is funny, because just a few minutes before that she said that he couldn’t.

She finished her little rant with “Not arguing with y’all at 6am,” even though that’s what she’d been doing, and she deleted her tweets.

Classic Jenelle, right?

Look, whether you love her or love to hate her or hate to hate her but still can’t quite look away, this is all ridiculous, right?

But hey, that’s our girl!


Jenelle Evans Posts Drone Pic of Fence 100 Feet From Pool, Threatens to Sue Radar Online

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans hit back at reports that she’s a bad parent and possibly breaking the law for not installing a pool fence.

Tweeting a photo that allegedly proves her argument, the Carolina Hurricane threatened legal action against one celebrity gossip site.

If you watch Teen Mom 2 or read any celebrity gossip at all, you know Evans failing at parenting is a commonplace occurrance.

In this case, though, it is much, much worse.

It’s potentially illegal and life-threatening.

Last year, after building a house on The Land atop of a sinkhole, Jenelle decided to get a pool for her rapidly-expanding brood.

She’s shared a lot of pictures of it on social media, because that’s what she does, but those photos revealed a glaring omission:

A fence around the in-ground swim hole.

Her legion of obsessive, vocal social media followers have been all over this alleged oversight, dating back to last fall in fact.

All the way back in September, she tweeted that “of course” she put a fence around it, with “a pull lock like at public pools.”

This is obvious, dude. “To get your permit approved,” the MTV star insisted, you have to get a fence, also to protect wildlife.”

Good answer, except it’s summer now, and as she posts more photos and videos than ever … there’s still a lack of fence.

Right? WRONG, says Jenelle, who took to Twitter to post this EXCLUSIVE evidence and threaten to sue Radar Online:

According to Jenelle, this drone pic absolves her of any wrongdoing, because open your eyes. There’s a fence, haters. See?!

Yes, laugh-cry emoji and all.

We’re laugh-crying alright, but not for the reason she thinks. The fence, while existing, covers pretty much the entire backyard.

By little kid standards, this is around 3.5 miles from the pool, with ample room to romp directly in and around it as they see fit.

(Also, the David Eason shirtless cameo represents a proud moment for redneck husbands normally confined to above-ground pools.)

But back to the lecture at hand: North Carolina building codes state that pools must have barriers that meet certain standards.

There are specific measurements that barriers must have, but it’s all academic, as there’s clearly nothing constituting a “barrier” here.

Will anything come from this scandal? Probably not. Does Evans’ fence, as it stands now, in the next town over, pose any real threat?

Probably not.

But the idea that she’s sticking it to a celebrity news outlet and proving the haters wrong with this tweet is nothing if not hilarious.

Are sites like Radar and THG making a bigger deal out of something than necessary? There’s an argument to be made there.

Are we wrong, though? And are we doing anything beyond analyzing her own photos and her own fans’ remarks online? Hardly.  

It pales in comparison to many previous Jenelle scandals, to be fair. But not because the lack of a fence isn’t worth mentioning.

We’re just talking about a girl who’s done heroin, abused animals, stolen her mother’s credit cards and had DCS show up 20 times.

It’s all relative.


Jenelle Evans: I Found a Brand New Way to Be a Bad Mom, Dude!

Is Jenelle Evans the worst mother on all of Teen Mom?

Could be, yeah.

She definitely has some competition in a franchise that also includes the likes of Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham, but she’s the only one who’s been investigated by CPS this month, so …

Anyway, the point is that Jenelle is just not all that great at parenting, and she’s proved that many, many times over the years.

Remember when she had Jace and told her friends that having a baby was like being in jail, and then she said that she thought it’d be OK if she went out and partied all night because her newborn would be sleeping anyway?

Or when she signed over custody of Jace to her mom so she could smoke weed with Kieffer and get arrested a ton?

That kind of stuff happened eight years ago, but there are plenty of examples from this year to choose from as well.

For instance, all those child abuse allegations against Jenelle’s husband, David Eason.

Look, we could spend days going over all the horrible, awful things Jenelle has done as a parent — literal days, probably — but let’s just get down to business and talk about this new thing, all right?

Because this new thing Jenelle’s doing to fail at parenthood is illegal and also potentially life-threatening.

See, last year, before the swamp started eating her house, Jenelle decided to get a pool.

She’s shared a lot of pictures of it since then, and it does look pretty fun. The kids seem to enjoy it, which is nice, considering everything else that allegedly goes on out there.

But there is an issue: she’s never put a fence around the pool.

Her social media followers have been hounding her about this oversight ever since the pool came to be, so much that she’s actually commented on it.

All the way in September, she tweeted that “of course” she’d put a fence around it, with “a pull lock like at public pools.”

She added that “To get your permit approved for your pool you have to get a fence, also to protect wildlife.”

And yet here we are, nearly a year later, and does the pool have a fence?

You know good and well it does not.

This issue has been getting more attention lately, probably because Jenelle’s been posting more photos and videos featuring the pool now that it’s summertime.

Like this one, where you can clearly see that there’s no fence:

On that photo, she received comments like “Y’all need a fence around the pool b4 a child drowns idiots” and “I would rather fence in my pool than bury my child but I guess that’s bc I’m logical.”

One person advised her to “Put a safety fence up around that pool or just like that an accident with those children can happen in 

Another pointed out that “She doesn’t even know the first thing about carseat safety, why would she care about her kids drowning?”

Believe it or not, while Jenelle has tons and tons of haters, she also has some fans, and those people tried to defend her by saying she does have a fence around the yard — you can see it in the background.

It’s true, the fence is obviously there, but it fences in the entire backyard, so the kids can still go outside and directly to the pool.

And according to North Carolina state law, that’s simply not good enough.

Radar Online reached out to someone from the North Carolina building codes department, and that person confirmed that, legally speaking, you have to block off your pool.

According to the law, any kind of outdoor pool is required to have a barrier that meets certain standards.

There are lots of specific measurements that barrier must have — it has to be a certain height and in a certain position, that kind of thing.

But since Jenelle doesn’t have any barrier at all around her pool, that means she’s breaking the law.

Will anything come from this? Probably not.

After all, Jenelle’s done heroin, abused animals, and stolen her mother’s credit cards all on national television, and she’s never even been in jail.

Unless something terrible happens, we can’t imagine she’ll face any consequences for this.

But still … come on, Jenelle, do SOMETHING right.


David Eason to Jenelle Evans: Quit Teen Mom 2 or I’m Quitting You!

It's been eight months since Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason, was fired from Teen Mom 2, but as production generally lags a few months behind real time, we're just now seeing our first David-free episodes.

Fans might like what they're seeing, but not surprisingly, it seems Eason is not a fan.

In fact, he's reportedly taken a hard-line anti-Teen Mom stance and informed Jenelle that she has to choose between reality TV stardom and her marriage.

Seems like a no-brainer to us, but Jenelle is reportedly having a hard time with the decision.

Here's what we know so far:

1. Angry Dave

Eason was fired back in November of 2017 after launching a homophobic tirade against fans of TM2 who criticized his insensitivity toward victims of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

2. Crossroads

Jenelle continued to film in the weeks after David was fired, but she has yet to sign a contract for another season of the show.

3. The Ultimatum

Now, Eason has reportedly issued an ultimatum to his controversial wife and forcing her to choose between her husband and her career.

4. Laying It on the Line

“David is telling Jenelle to quit the show, since he can’t be on it,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.

5. The Small Matter of Money

Considering David and Jenelle have five kids between them, it’s understandable that Jenelle isn’t too eager to cut off the family’s sole source of income. But David has apparently assured her that everything will be just fine …

6. Oh, Well In That Case…

“David tells Jenelle that they will be fine if she’s not on the show,” the source said. “However, she has no other way to make money. All of her endorsement deals fall through.”

Jenelle Evans: My Mom Is Teaching My Kids to Hate Me!

On last week's episode of Teen Mom 2, fans were stunned to see Jenelle Evans eldest son, Jace, refer to his mother and stepfather as "pieces of sh-t."

It wasn't the 8-year-old's use of profanity that surprised viewers, but rather the fact that he was assessing his mother using the same language the public has been using for several years.

Not surprisingly, Jenelle took to Twitter to defend herself — and to blame everyone else for her troubled relationship with her son.

As is so often the case, Jenelle's mother, Barbara Evans, found herself in the crosshairs.

And this time, Jenelle unloaded on Babs like never before:


1. Two Of a Kind

Jenelle evans with barbara evans
Jenelle and Barbara’s fights are the stuff or reality TV legend. And Jenelle’s eldest son, Jace, is often at the center of their conflicts.

2. The Real Victim

Jenelle with jace
Now 8, Jace has been in Barbara’s custody since before his first birthday. And these days, it seems he’s fully aware of the fact that he dodged a bullet by not being raised by Jenelle.

3. A New Arrangement

Under the terms of an agreement reached last year, Barabara has retained custody of Jace in exchange for allowing Jenelle more visitation time, including weekend visits.

4. The Diss Heard ‘Round the World

Jenelle evans and jace pic
When Jace returned from one such weekend with Jenelle and her controversial husband, David Eason, he let the couple have it in a way that earned him praise from millions of TM2 viewers.

5. Telling It Like It Is

Jace evans birtday photo
“Mommy and David are pieces of sh-t,” Jace told Babs bluntly before spitting on the ground for emphasis.

6. The Reaction

Jenelle evans instagram pic
Obviously, Jenelle took the opportunity to engage in some serious introspection and ask herself why her son might feel that way. Just kidding, she went on a totally bonkers Twitter rant …

Jenelle Evans: My Son Would NEVER Call Me a Piece of S–t If He Actually Knew Me!

If you watched Teen Mom 2 this week, then you know what a roller coaster ride of an episode it was.

We got to see Chelsea Houska do a sweet little gender reveal for her husband, Cole DeBoer, which was adorable and wonderful and precious.

But then we saw Leah Messer discuss her daughter’s increasing health problems, which, as always, was positively heartbreaking.

Briana DeJesus was dealing with her breakup with Javi Marroquin, which was pretty whatever, but the best part of her segments was her sister, Brittany, comforting her while on painkillers after a wisdom tooth removal.

Kailyn Lowry’s segments dealt with Javi too, but we also got to see Isaac’s birthday — so cute!

And then there’s Jenelle Evans.

In the previous episode we’d learned that David Eason had just been fired, so of course in this week’s show, Jenelle explained that he’d just been refusing to film for his own personal reasons.

In another scene, she gave us a good example of her lack of parenting skills when she explained to her mother Barbara that she hadn’t given Jace his medication because he was “fine,” because that’s how medicine works.

She also didn’t return the medication she didn’t give him to Barb.

Barbara asked Jenelle out to lunch, but Jenelle shut her down because she was too busy, and then we saw Jace and Barb back at home.

He told her that Jenelle didn’t allow him to call her, which is awful, and then he told her that the whole family had gone out on the boat for a big, fun day.

Well, the whole family minus Kaiser, who they stuck in daycare.

Barbara was upset at that news, because it doesn’t sound fair to exclude poor Kaiser when they actually do something fun. She said that it broke her heart.

And then Jace actually said “Mommy and David are pieces of sh-t.”

Barbara looked shocked and asked him what he’d said, so he repeated himself, and he spit on the ground for good measure.

She didn’t say anything, because what can you say after something like that? Then the episode ended.

A lot of Teen Mom 2 fans had a lot of feelings about the moment — most were as shocked as Barb was.

Some thought that he was repeating something he’d heard from her, but others thought that the phrasing sounded something more like David would say, particularly with the spitting on the ground for emphasis.

Regardless, most people agreed that it really did seem like he was fully aware of what he was saying, and that he meant it.

Since it was the last scene of the episode, and since the next episode obviously hasn’t aired yet, we don’t know how Barbara ended up dealing with what Jace said, or if Jenelle heard about it before watching the episode.

But since Jenelle is Jenelle, she’s discussing the issue on Twitter in the dumbest manner possible.

Early this morning, she tweeted “If Jace lived with me he wouldn’t have ever spoke those words about ANYONE.”

“Thought me and my mom were actually building our relationship lately and now it’s two steps back.”

There are approximately a million things wrong with this one short tweet, but let’s try to break it down anyway, all right?

For one, why is she blaming her mother for this?

Sure, Jace may have heard the sentiment from her originally, but it’s not like she forced the kid to say it.

And since this was filmed several months ago, it shouldn’t have an impact on any progress their relationship is making now.

Also, why on earth does she think that anyone would actually believe that Jace wouldn’t talk like this if he lived with her?

We’ve seen Jenelle and David both be absolutely horrible to all kinds of people — David’s called Kaiser a “screaming little bitch,” he’s called Dr. Drew a “f-g,” and it’s impossible to keep up with all the names he’s called Nathan Griffith.

Throughout the years we’ve seen Jenelle say awful things about Barbara in front of Jace, too.

If Jace lived with Jenelle and David, he’d almost certainly being saying worse about several people.

And let’s be real, it’s not like Jace was wrong in his original statement, anyway.

Does she forget that she’s been on a reality show for the better part of a decade and that lots of people are familiar with her life and her personality?

Because anyone who’s ever seen like ten minutes of her footage would be able to tell you that her statement on this subject is absolute nonsense, and it’s a little embarrassing that she’s trying to act like she could raise Jace better than Barbara is.

Jenelle, just … stop, girl. Just stop for a little bit.


Nathan Griffith: I Have PROOF That Jenelle Evans Beats Her Kids!

Fans of Teen Mom 2 have known for years that Jenelle Evans’ parenting is shoddy at best, abusive and criminally negligent at worst.

But this past week has provided more evidence than ever before that Jenelle is unfit to raise children.

It all started when Evans’ 4-year-old son Kaiser was dropped off to spend the weekend with his father, Nathan Griffith.

Griffith’s mother, Doris Davidson, claims she immediately discovered several bruises on the boy.

And when she asked how he got so banged up, Kaiser reportedly blamed his controversial stepfather.

“I received my child and he has marks all over him,” Griffith told the dispatcher.

“We asked him about it and he said David hit him with a stick.”

At the end of the weekend, Nathan and Doris refused to return Kaiser to his mother, but were eventually forced to do so when an emergency CPS investigation turned up no conclusive evidence of abuse.

Despite considerable protest Kaiser is now back with Jenelle and David in what his father fears is an abusive situation.

But that doesn’t mean Nathan and Doris are giving up the fight.

“Columbus County CPS has an open investigation on them still,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.

And Nathan says he has evidence that will convince investigators that Jenelle should be stripped of all custody and visitation rights.

Insiders say Nathan took photos of five different bruises on Kaiser’s body before he returned the boy to Jenelle.

It’s unclear why this evidence didn’t persuade the original investigator that the 4-year-old is being abused, but Nathan is reportedly confident that the photographs will be enough to have Jenelle stripped of all custody and visitation rights.

Of course, as longtime followers of this conflict know, Nathan has been trying to have his son removed from Jenelle’s home for almost a year, thus far to no avail.

The custody battle began back in September of 2017.

At the time, Nathan accused both Jenelle and David of using corporal punishment that left “bruises and markings on the child that are unusual and more than normal scrapes that a toddler may have.”

Nathan also accused Jenelle of smoking pot while pregnant, something that she later admitted to.

Shortly after Nathan’s original documents were filed, he accused Eason of punching Kaiser on more than one occasion.

Eason has denied the allegation.

David recently took to Instagram to attempt to explain Kaiser’s bruising to the public:

“You couldn’t ask for a better kid,” Eason wrote.

“Kaiser is more active than the rest and tends to be a little clumsy but he is a bruiser and nothing stops him when he is having a good time!” 

Needless to say, the comment aroused more suspicions than it allayed.

It remains to be seen if Nathan is actually in possession of sufficient evidence to prove to the court that Jenelle is an unfit mother.

Of course, some would say MTV already has thousands of hours of proof.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of just how terrible a mom Jenelle really is.
