‘Teen Mom 2’ Cancellation Has Been a Long Time Coming, Thanks to Jenelle Evans

jenelle evansThey've created a monster, and now they must kill it. Multiple sources have told the New York Post that MTV is canceling Teen Mom 2 due to cast member Jenelle Evans' erratic (or what I like to call "psycho") behavior. The network thinks Jenelle's a liability and doesn't want her associated with their brand anymore, so their solution is to pull the plug.

The fourth and final season of Teen Mom 2 is currently filming (or has just wrapped), but from the sound of things, it'll never make it to air.

I mean, when one of the "stars" you've created has been hospitalized for alleged heroin use, has been to rehab twice, has gotten married, has tweeted obscenities about getting a divorce, has gotten pregnant, has had a supposed miscarriage, has gone to the bar after said miscarriage, and has shown a complete disregard for her 3-year-old son of whom she doesn't have custody, it's easy to see why MTV would like to distance themselves from a self-destructive person.

And while I'm sure it was a tough decision -- the show is a veritable cash cow for the network -- I'm happy to see they've taken some responsibility for Jenelle. Someone has to.

The show was originally created to present a cautionary tale of teen pregnancy, but thanks to gems like Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham, and Jenelle, the show's more about how the lives of young 20-somethings go spiraling out of control after gaining some fame, notoriety, and a bank account.

From insane plastic surgery to jail time for domestic abuse to a possible pregnancy hoax for publicity, it's time to realize that Teen Mom is doing more harm than good.

So far, MTV hasn't commented on the fate of Teen Mom 2, but with any luck, they'll announce its cancellation shortly.

Do you think MTV should cancel Teen Mom 2?

Why are they so worried about their image now? Her erratic behavior was certainly one of the main reasons they cast her to begin with. Really, she pales in comparison to some of the trash they feature on their channel.

You know your behavior is waaaaay out of control when even MTV wants nothing to do with you.

I've always said this show is BS... how is this showing a teen moms struggles when these kids are getting fat paychecks from MTV... real teen moms dont get to buy brand new cars and breast implants because they had a baby and MTV is paying them to get filmed...

To get a "real" teen mom glimpse, they should record some teen moms and withold the paychecks until they are done with all the seasons! Now THAT would be something worth watching... how REAL struggling teen moms get by.

I've seen the same thing happen to women not famous. Not that the show is a train wreck and not that all teen moms are like that but I hardly think it's the shows fault these little ladies lost thier heads. Some people just don't make good choices in life and that's life.

i really like teen mom 2 but janelle should of been off m.v. long time ago, she crazy and still doesnt understand the meaning of being a mom, she will never change and grow up and take care of her kid, i feel bad for the little boy he doesnt have any one in his life that is stable to take care of him besides her mom, thats really sad for him, they shoudnt cancel the rest of the people who are realing trying to be a good mom.. i dont know why m.t.v.just should took janelle off a long time ago.. they should put the people who are actully trying to make it into world as a mom then as a crazy freak.. thats all i have to say..

In a way im sad to seeit go but in a way im not as Jenelle was out of controll I agree with some previous posters as they should with hold paychecks till after filming and really show the struggles. I am a young mother n we have struggled alot to get to where were at so I yotally get that. I dont know that MTV can reduce their image much because they have that show Jacka** on there but good luck and I really feel for the ones that did try to portray the hard times of beig single n a teen mom

I had my first daughter @ 18 and no one paid me too air how hard it was to raise her on national tv!! I say get rid of Janelle. She cares nothing about Jace and uses MTV to get attention!! Chelsea, Leah, & Kailyn are the ones who are honestly the ones trying and give two s##ts about their precious babies!!! I adore and look up to those girls. Kailyn is amazing because she has had NO help other than Jo and his family. Cut your losses with Jenelle now. Your better off!!

I think they just need to cancel Jenelle, not everyone.

Brandy Estes

I hope it doesn't. I am intrigued by it as I was a mom at 18 and it was definitely hard. How bout just take her off the show and leave the others on.
