Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus is defending her friend, Jenelle Evans, after MTV fired the latter from the reality TV series.
According to Us Weekly, Briana DeJesus and Jenelle Evans have become close over the past couple of years, and have often stayed away from interaction with their other co-stars.
Now, Briana is revealing how she feels about Jenelle being fired from the show.
“I am sad for her. I wish there was some kind of compromise for all of this. She worked her a** off for so long to just be thrown to the wolves,” DeJesus said in a statement on Wednesday.
“I hope she gets everything she ever wanted and I just want her to flourish! As far as David, it sucks that his actions caused all of this but this is what it is and there’s no going back,” Briana added.
Jenelle was officially fired on Tuesday evening after days of speculation about her future with the franchise. In addition to all of the drama that has surrounded Evans in the past, this week her husband — David Eason — sparked outrage yet again when he admitted to killing the family’s pet, a bulldog named Nugget, after it allegedly nipped at their daughter, Ensley.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jenelle Evans was said to be very upset about having been fired from Teen Mom 2, but may have already moved on to her next reality TV project.
Sources tell TMZ that Evans and her husband have been tapped to star on an upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp, and that the show has been wanting Jenelle and David to appear for some time. However, MTV had never allowed it.
Meanwhile, Evans’ rep tells People that Evans is focused on her family during this difficult time in her life, and that she’s thankful for the years that MTV gave her on the show.
“Jenelle is focusing on her family and moving forward. She is very grateful and appreciative of the opportunity MTV have given her and her family for the last 10 years. It is sad to part ways in this matter [sic] but this isn’t the end of Jenelle Evans or her family.”
Fans will be able to keep up with Jenelle Evans and her three children — Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley — by following the reality star on Instagram, and by watching out for her new projects in the near future.
