Wearing two braids, an Adidas baseball cap, and glasses, Jenelle gave a carefully-considered answer to the question: “Do I miss being on Teen Mom?”
She tagged the video: “Do I really miss it?” followed by a confused Emoji face.
Yet in a flurry of fan comments, she took the chance to set the record straight.
One joked: “You miss the money tho,” before Jenelle retorted, “I make almost as much being self employed at home.”
Another mused: “She misses the money,” as the controversial TV personality quickly responded: “Nope.”
In her lengthy reply Jenelle, who is married to David Eason, said: “I do not miss the reunions, I do not miss the way I wasn’t allowed to be involved with editing.”
She then emphasised: “But I do miss sharing my story with you guys.
“I do miss you guys watching my kids grow up as well.
“And I also miss the fact that you guys can relate to my story and we can relate with each other.
“But you know new chapters happen in life, and some close, but I think what hurts the most is there is so many milestones the kids have been achieving and accomplishing and you guys don’t see any of that.”
She concluded: “There’s so much good that has happened in my life since TV but that doesn’t make ratings.”
In a shameless plug she rounded off with: “So if you want to keep up with me check out my YouTube channel.”
“There’s so much good that has happened in my life since TV but that doesn’t make ratings.”
REALITY TV REGULAR
Controversial mom Jenelle favored partying over parenting on initial MTV series 16 And Pregnant, which she joined in 2009.
Episodes showed her attempting to postpone a jail sentence to go to a music gig while giving custody of firstborn Jace to her mom.
Jenelle went on to star on Teen Mom 2 and now has three children.
Yet her husband David, with whom she has battled through marriage struggles, was booted off the series in 2018 after he posted a series of homophobic Tweets.
She was fired a year later when he shot and killed the family dog.
Jenelle has spent the coronavirus pandemic filling her TikTok page with racy and twerking videos – many of which have been slammed by her followers.
It is these and her other social media work which she claims now are most lucrative.
Recently, Jenelle hit out at trolls suggesting she displayed “threatening” behavior.
The ex reality star took to her Instagram Stories for a furious video a day after she revealed her dog Rosey had become pregnant.
The puppy news came after David previously killed one of the family dogs – meaning fans were not convinced about the new arrival and its future happiness.
This led Jenelle to take to her Instagram Stories, wearing a baby pink jumper and thick black mascara, as she ranted: “Rumor alert. So you guys are tagging me in some people’s post, a Teen Mom chatter account, and they are claiming on reddit that I’m randomly messaging fans back because they made a bad comment about my dog.”
Rolling her eyes and shaking her head she continued: “Erm nope, I would never just randomly message somebody I don’t know and threaten them, saying that they will pay because they made a comment about my dog.
“Come on – are we in f**king High School right now?
“I don’t know, I don’t know if this is a true story or not but it’s not about me.”
