After so many seasons of Teen Mom, it's become the standard for a cast member or two to complain about the show's filming process. But one of the stars isn't interested in the criticism. Javi Marroquin shut down Jenelle Evans's claims against MTV, and he kind of has a really good point.

  • As you probably already know, Jenelle has been really pissed at MTV lately, especially after last week's episode.

    In fact, after a fight with David and her screaming kiddos was broadcast on the show, she announced that she was quitting Teen Mom 2 and deleted her Twitter, instead taking to Instagram to share screenshots of text messages she had with MTV producers on the subject. It's been a lot.

  • Javi is talking to Radar Online about how Jenelle is totally out of line for making these threats, since MTV is who writes her paychecks.

    He told the site: 

    "I feel like every girl has threatened to leave the show since we started this years ago. I hate when they say that because if you take out the doors that it opens, the money it provides, the house you're living in, take all of that out and where would you be? People need to be humble." 

    Wow, Javi. Tell us how you really feel. 

  • And even though what each episode looks like is ultimately up to the producers, Javi says the cast definitely controls their own story.

  • In fact, he even went so far as to say that when the show paints him in an unfavorable light, he "deserves" it. Whoa -- there's some serious honesty.

    "If I said something stupid or did something stupid, we deserved it," Javi told Radar. "Realize that and change." 

    That's some real talk right there.

  • Maybe Jenelle should take a page out of Javi's book and realize she has a pretty awesome gig that comes with a few downsides, like any job would.

    After all, we wouldn't mind trading for that sweet MTV paycheck. Can we have her spot on the show?
