It looks like Jenelle Evans is coming back to TV- but no, she’s not re-joining Teen Mom!
Mother-of-three Jenelle Evans first got her start in reality television thanks to her stint on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. After her successful episode, she was eventually invited to star on Teen Mom 2 where fans have been keeping up with her drama ever since. That is, up until a few months ago.
This past May, Jenelle was fired from the hit show after it was reported her husband allegedly shot the family’s dog, something which Jenelle now denies. The couple subsequently lost custody of their brood of kids, though they’ve since regained it. Jenelle’s husband David Eason had previously been booted from the show last year after making transphobic remarks online.
However, it appears fans will be able to keep up with the controversial family once again as reports say Jenelle has signed on to a new show, which has already started filming. According to Hollywood Life, the untitled show even filmed some of the star’s recent custody drama.
“She’s let it be known that she’s planning to have her own show,” a source told the publication. “She’s been filming her life during this custody battle because she feels that’s the only way to get her truth out there. She has not said where the footage will air but it’s not going to be on MTV.” As of now, it remains unclear which network has signed Jenelle and her family.
What is clear, however, is that the new show will have a lot of drama to capture for the cameras. Though Jenelle and David have regained custody of their kids- which includes their 2-year old daughter Ensley, her 4-year old son Kaiser, and her step-daughter, 11-year old Maryssa- the kids’ temporary guardians are gearing up to fight it.
Kaiser’s father, Nathan Griffith, has been vocal about his disappointment with the custody outcome. He even shared a link for fans online in which they can complain about the judge’s decision to dismiss the custody case.
When asked by TMZ if he’s planning on continuing to fight, Nathan responded positively. “Before CPS got involved, I [had] already started a custody battle with her to get primary custody over Kaiser,” he told the cameras. “And me and my lawyer are going to, of course, approach that accordingly. We’re still going to fight for primary custody.”
Jenelle’s mother Barbara, who temporarily looked after Ensley during the custody case, has also publicly stated she doesn’t agree with the judge’s decision. Barbara also has full-time custody of Jenelle’s eldest son, Jace, though the reality star has since regained visitation rights of the 9-year old. According to reports, Maryssa’s maternal grandmother, mother, and step-father will also be taking steps to get her out of her father’s custody.
