Teen Mom Jenelle Evans seems to have a problem understanding a cause and effect relationship. How else could someone be routinely shocked by such predictable outcomes? Let me break it down: if you have unprotected sex, you can get pregnant. If you do drugs, you can get addicted. If you get caught using drugs, you can get arrested. If you hang out with people strung out on heroin, you will become a person strung out on heroin. If you share your whole world on a reality show, you have given up your chance at leading a private life.
Jenelle's latest lash out at a fan/hater on Twitter is evidence that she continues to struggle with this very simple concept.
If you share on Twitter that your husband has assaulted you, people will share their opinions on the subject with you, on Twitter.
When one such person inevitably questioned Jenelle's charges against Courtland Rogers, which she is now retracting (and may, as a result, face a misdemeanour charge of falsifying a report), Jenelle responded:
I never gave ANY DETAILS TO ANYONE about what happened to me, so give up. It's my business.
Ehhhh, but not really. It's her business, for sure, but she gave us access to it. If Jenelle wanted it to stay a private matter, she wouldn't have asked people to watch for her tweets, or reminded people to watch her show, nor would she have initiated a divorce on social media, slamming the man she's now saying she's madly in love with, again.
It sounds like Jenelle's been talking with her lawyer a lot recently; maybe he or she can explain to her causality means. You can't have your cake and eat it, too, PB and Jelly.
What do you think of Jenelle's tweet?
