Is she desperate?
Whether talking about A-listers or Z-listers, there’s one thing most people think of when they think of celebrities: money. Although the Teen Mom cast members’ paychecks weren’t huge at the outset, as their fame grows, so do their wallets. Now, the girls reportedly make upwards of $50,000 each episode, which means they should be set for life if they manage their money correctly. Right?
Well, money management isn’t exactly everyone’s forte.
Having financial problems can be a very humbling experience, and for someone like Jenelle Evans, it’s probably not something she wants to advertise. Even so, many of Jenelle’s fans think they’ve seen through some of her recent actions — and they think that she might be covering up some serious problems in her bank account.
As the Teen Mom cast get older and older, fans are forced to confront the fact that the show won’t be around forever — at least, not with the current Moms holding down the fort. After all, most of the cast members are closer to being “thirty-year-old moms” than they are to being “teen moms.” Not to mention that some of the cast members have made repeated threats to cut their celebrity tenure short by quitting the show before it officially wraps.
Jenelle Evans recently made a similar threat to sever all of her ties with MTV due to the way the network has been treating her.
She wrote on Instagram:
“I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show. I told Morgan it’s getting to [sic] out of hand and it’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally. They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages. WE aren’t human beings to @mtv what-so-ever.”
Since her announcement back in early October, Jenelle has kept mum on the issue, not confirming that she’s officially quit the show. Fans think she might have gone back on the threat because she made up with MTV executives… but it’s just as possible that she can’t quit because she needs the money!
With her ever-increasing income, Jenelle has been doling out huge amounts of money on property purchases, vacations, and building the home that’s situated on The Land. She also wed David Eason in a luxurious ceremony earlier this year which certainly took up quite a bit of coin!
Making Ends Meet
So has all of this spending put Jenelle in a hole? Many fans think that this may be an explanation for her recent behavior. Jenelle has made some waves in the Teen Mom community of late by sending her co-stars and mother cease and desist letters. It’s easy to believe that Jenelle just wants some distance from her co-stars, but some fans think that this might be just another way to make money by keeping her name in the headlines.
Jenelle recently launched her new makeup line and has also announced a new clothing line. Whether or not they’re successful, it is often months or years before new businesses start to break even. With that in mind it’s possible that Jenelle is doing everything in her power to stay relevant and get those purchase orders rolling in. It might also be why she’s remained silent about her feud with MTV.
If this Jenelle really is going broke, it doesn’t bode well for the theory that David is only using her for her money and fame.
