‘Teen Mom 2’: Could Jenelle Evans Return to the Franchise?

If you thought you heard the last of Jenelle Evans, you thought wrong. While the current season of Teen Mom 2 is chugging along without the mother of three, she might return to the airwaves one day. At the very least, Evans isn’t closing the door entirely on the franchise, and it sounds like MTV isn’t ready to put the last nail in the coffin either. Several current happenings might indicate a return to MTV is imminent for the troubled former reality TV star.

Is divorce just around the corner?

Evans and her husband, David Eason, don’t have the most stable relationship in the world. They have broken up and gotten back together several times, but recently they seemed to be working together. That all changed yesterday when Evans changed her relationship status on Facebook. Fans caught the lowkey status change after she began posting memes that suggested there was trouble in paradise.

Evans relationship status is now listed as separate, and the memes she is sharing suggest she’s over her relationship with Eason. While she’s taken to social media to hint at what’s going on, she hasn’t confirmed that the couple is on the outs. Things change fast for Eason and Evans, so it might be best if they don’t announce anything just yet.

Jenelle’s makeup line is not doing well

In the wake of Nugget’s death, Evans attempted to launch a makeup line. To her credit, the line was allegedly in the works months before the incident occurred, but once MTV fired her, it was the only viable income stream the mother of three had going for her. After a launch party in New York a few weeks ago, it’s evident that she won’t be the next Kylie Jenner.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, Evans’ makeup line is a bust. The troubled MTV star has only managed to sell 150 units of her brow kit since its launch two weeks ago. Those numbers, for those wondering, are abysmal.

The reviews for the kit aren’t much better, either. One reviewer who plunked down $40 for the kit, claimed the pencil broke with the very first use. Ashley Jones, who appears on MTV’s Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant opted out of reviewing the product because it lacked the color option she needed. Evans’ product only comes in one color option, so ladies with dark brows are out of luck.

Could Jenelle Evans return to Teen Mom 2?

Evans’ ousting from Teen Mom 2 is a sore subject for her and her mother, Barbara Evans. Babs sat down to discuss life after the show with Radar Online, and she was pretty irked by the situation. According to the Interview, the elder Evans feels like she and her daughter were unfairly fired. The younger Evans and her mother, by proxy, were ousted from the show when Evans’ husband shot and killed the family dog.  

The decision seemed to be directly related to the younger Evans’ refusal to film without Eason, and the trouble he was causing for sponsors and production crews. If Evans and Eason are really on the outs, it’s possible that the production team would consider bringing the mother-daughter duo back to the airwaves.

The younger Evans sat down with People for an interview, and she discussed the possibility of returning to Teen Mom 2. She said, “My relationship with MTV right now — we just left it on a civil note. And, you know, apparently I’m still in an open contract, I hear.” Allegedly, she’s open to the idea of returning, although she notes that she is currently only in communication with one producer. She claims no one else will call her back.

Whether she’ll ever return to the show probably depends on several factors; the most critical factor is likely her relationship to Eason. If Eason were out of the picture, the production company would likely be more willing to entertain Evans and her mother again. Evans, as it stands, appears to be approaching dire financial straits, meaning she’d probably jump at the offer, lousy editing or not if it came up.
