Jenelle Evans Makes a Seriously Smart Decision for Her Family

Jenelle Evans hasn't always been known for her flawless judgment (not judging, just sayin'!). The former Teen Mom is still struggling to regain custody of her 5-year-old son, Jace, and had a reportedly violent split from the father of her second son, Kaiser, earlier this year. But she did make one very smart decision recently, or so she claims, when Jenelle turned down a $1.5 million sex tape offer!


In an exclusive interview with The Ashley Reality Roundup, Evans says she was contacted by Vivid Entertainment (yup, the same company that produced fellow Teen Mom Farrah Abraham's super-successful porno) a couple of weeks ago about making a sex tape of her very own -- for a LOT of money:

They contacted my lawyer and wanted to offer me $1.5 million. I told my lawyer to respond for me and say, 'No thank you, not interested but flattered.' My future and reputation is more important than gaining a quick buck. And it's against my morals as a person. That's just so disrespectful to yourself.

Phew! Talk about a bullet dodged. Making a sex tape is most definitely the last thing Evans should be considering right about now, particularly since she's trying so hard to make a respectable life for herself and her children. As the reality star told Us Weekly:

We're trying to work together, me and my mom, to try to come up with a solution. We've been on good terms lately and especially because she sees that I'm just trying to get myself prepared for my future. And she sees that's the most important thing to me right now, and I think she appreciates that a lot.

I'm so busy with school and my externship. I'm trying to tell my mom, my lawyer, and everyone, I'm like, 'Look, I know Jace is important right now, but, you know, my graduation is coming up in July.' So I mean, that is just, it's the No. 1 priority right now.

More from The Stir: Jenelle Evans' Dream of Getting Custody of Jace Might Be Over for Good

Evans is a medical clinical student at the moment, and since medicine is a way more stable (and less icky) field than porn, I sincerely hope she sticks to her guns and keeps working toward her professional goals. I'd like to think that her refusal to do the sex tape is a sign that she will stay on track -- that's a significant chunk of change to turn down, after all! Plus, she must realize that doing a sex tape won't exactly make her look like the most responsible parent, insofar as custody battles go. Stay strong, Jenelle! Just (keep saying) no to sex tape offers!

Do you think Jenelle Evans has really turned her life around this time?
