Farrah Abraham has been on a fair share of reality TV shows, but she doesn’t approve of Jenelle Evans’ possible return to Teen Mom 2. Jenelle announced on October 31 that she was filing for divorce from her husband, David Eason. Several outlets have reported that the divorce is a strategic financial move so that she can get back on MTV.
“I think a lot of us have been saying to Jenelle that she should maybe part ways and get a divorce for the betterment of her kids, herself and maybe David as well,” Farrah, 28, told an outlet on November 2.
Although she’s happy for Jenelle, 27, the former Teen Mom OG star criticized the decision after she heard it was so that she could get back on Teen Mom 2. “I think women like myself and others, who just want better crews and better circumstances for our kids, we do the right things beyond just wanting to go back to television,” Farrah said.
“Will things change when she gets a divorce just to go back to TV? I’m just a little bit confused about her real intentions,” she added. “Is it for her safety, her health and everyone’s wellbeing or is it just to get back on TV?”
Farrah continued, “I hope it’s not for TV. And I always wish all the moms the best.”
“If you actually really want to make a change but to keep repeating that cycle for over ten years now, that’s nothing I want to watch,” the Couples Therapy alum said. “And I know that’s not something my daughter wants to watch either.”
Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2 earlier this year after David admitted to shooting their dog. She was reportedly making $400,000 per episode at the time. David’s actions also caused his wife to lose endorsement deals, effectively cutting off her sources of income.
According to RadarOnline.com, the former reality star was running out of money and decided to divorce David. It went off like a lightbulb in her head. ‘I have this husband that doesn’t work? What in the hell am I going to do?’” a source told Radar.
“So, she decided to end the marriage before it is too late. There is no money left and she wants to make money again.”
