The girls are NOT happy!
It’s pretty safe to say you don’t know what it’s like to be on a reality show unless you’ve experienced it firsthand. For the stars of Teen Mom, they’ve had the surreal experience of watching their lives be edited, altered, and publicized in ways that aren’t always true to what really happened. For years.
With that in mind, it’s not surprising that many of the cast members have come forward over the years to air their grievances with the network. More than a few of them have been less than thrilled with the way their lives have been portrayed once the episodes aired.
And since the cast is known for their explosive personalities, there’s no wonder they took to social media to set the record straight when they felt MTV crossed the line.
The issue of MTV’s editing came back to the forefront of fans’ minds recently all thanks to Jenelle Evans. MTV aired footage of Jenelle and David the day after they got into a very tense fight and, according to Jenelle, it didn’t play out on screens like it did in their home.
The episode showed a tense moment between the couple, where David denies that they fought at all. The scene revived the long-time rumors that David is abusive towards Jenelle. Needless to say, Jenelle was furious.
She took to Instagram to share her frustrations. She wrote:
“Yes, me and David have our ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was uncalled for. Because David didn’t feel like explaining another argument or drama on camera they make it look as if David is hiding some weird ass shit from the public as if he was hurting me in some way?! I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show. I told Morgan it’s getting to 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.”
Aubree Ruining Cole’s Experience?
Chelsea Houska has her fair share of baby daddy drama, but her life with her husband Cole and children Aubree and Watson is pretty stable. That might be why MTV edited some scenes to make things more interesting.
In a recent episode when Chelsea said that Aubree’s acting out was “taking away from Cole’s experience” as a new father to Watson, Chelsea said that MTV had made it look worse than it really was. She tweeted that the line was “taken out of context from a different convo and added in that scene for some reason.”
That’s not the only accusation the stars have when it comes to messing with children. In fact, Kailyn recently wrote that MTV may have crossed a line when they provoked her son, Isaac, to tears! In a scene that aired, Isaac can be seen crying over Javi and Kailyn’s divorce, but Kailyn tweeted that things aren’t exactly how they looked. She said that the film crew “provoked the scene with Isaac crying at dinner!!!” She then added, “I lost my mind!!!!””
