What I'm about to tell you may be incredibly shocking to hear, so you might want to sit down if you aren't already. Are you ready for this? Okay: deep breath in, deep breath out ... another Teen Mom star has been arrested, you guys.
I KNOW OH MY GOD I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE IT MYSELF.
Okay, I guess I don't need to be sarcastic about a young woman's persistent tour of mug shot central, especially when there's a young child involved, but come on. Forever-troubled Jenelle Evans has been arrested again? For fighting with another woman—again?
What on earth is it going to take for the 20-year-old Teen Mom 2 "star" to get her act together? Because god knows we can't count on the MTV cameras to stop rolling.
Evans, who has been busted in the past for a brawl caught on tape, violating her probation, breaking and entering, drug possession, and god only knows what else, was booked yesterday morning in Brunswick County for allegedly giving "harassing phone calls" and "communicating threats" to her onetime roommate, Hannah Inman.
Hopefully she's not going to try and defend herself in court via the written word, because her follow-up explanation on Facebook was ... well, here, enjoy:
Yes I was arrested again. It's okay, Hannah's just calling her own bluffs. How can I harass u with phone calls when u clearly don't own a cell phone? I've dropped this argument weeks ago. Haven't been paying attention to u but u have the balls to tell yr little 'fans'.. 'imma f—king kill that bitch' ?! How's threatening who here ?!
Yeah, judge, how's threatening who? Case closed.
Evans attorney claims the charges are "completely absurd and retaliatory in nature," which I would totally believe except, you know, this is Jenelle Evans we're talking about. I'm not sure there are too many people who are likely to give her the benefit of the doubt on this.
Evans is, as she wrote on Twitter, "free as a biiirrrrddddd :D" now that she's posted a $1,000 bond, but this latest run-in with the law may mean more trouble down the road, since she's already on probation for a 2011 violent street fight with another woman. She should be worrying about jail time ... but I'm guessing Evans has other things to do. Like get wasted and make out with her new roommate, whom she presumably has not yet threatened in any way other than potentially exposing her to oral herpes.
It seems like it's just one thing after another with these Teen Mom girls. I'd say MTV should be giving some serious thought to moving on from this particular reality show, but let's be real: every arrest and personal drama just means more ratings for the network. Someone's cashing in on the mess these young women are making of their lives, and you'd think they'd wise up to realize it's not them.
Are you surprised to hear that Jenelle Evans has been busted again?
