If there's anyone left out there who still feels bad for Jenelle Evans, the star of Teen Mom 2 just slammed a nail in that coffin. The "mom" of little Jace has proven again and again on the MTV reality show that she carries little respect for other people, from walking off with her mom's credit cards to crashing at someone else's house without their knowledge. But harnessing the power of her high-profile Twitter account (she has more than 100,000 followers), Evans sunk to an all-time low when she made one of her fellow teen mom's alleged secrets a matter of public record.
Just days after landing her butt back in jail on charges of violating her probation (for drug use -- surprise, surprise), she took to Twitter to bash Nikkole Paulun, a fellow star of the second season of 16 & Pregnant. Evans claims in a series of tweets that Paulun had an abortion sometime after the birth of son Lyle:
@nikkoleMTV yeah well at least we kept our children and didn't get an abortion :)
And she doesn't let it end with the snarky smiley face. Look what Evans had to say when she was challenged that she shouldn't fabricate facts about her co-stars:
@HeatherTMT make up?! LMFAO after Lyle and before teen mom nikkole got an abortion when we were friends she told me she was keeping it
If that's what she says about her friends on Twitter, I'd sure hate to meet one of her enemies! Frankly, it doesn't matter whether it's true or not. It's a vicious rumor to start and a secret that shouldn't be shared by anyone but the woman involved. Abortion, while legal, is a very personal decision. It's not to be taken lightly and certainly not something to be used as an "insult" or "joke."
It's particularly not something to be shared on the Internet, a forum that's more public than any other. Tweets are now collected by the Library of Congress. They're very literally part of the American public "record." Evans certainly isn't alone in thinking it's "OK" to be mean on Twitter because the site allows you to spill your guts without an editor looking over your shoulder. But this is a girl who spends half her time on Twitter complaining that the tabloids are getting it all wrong about her. You'd hope that would teach her a lesson in respecting other people's right to be kept out of the rumor mill?
Of course the reason Nikkole Paulun has Evans all hot and bothered just drives home why she's always in the gossip rags. Nikkole is currently dating Corey Simms, the soon-to-be ex-husband of Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer. Evans is "sticking up" for Leah by creating another scandal. This girl just can't stay away from drama.
Is this an all-time low or just the same old, same old for Jenelle Evans?
