Jenelle Evans is officially gone from Teen Mom 2, with her replacement already announced as Jade Cline. Jenelle was fired shortly after her husband David Eason shot and killed her dog, Nugget. David himself was previously removed from the show for making homophobic remarks online.
While fans are letting go of Jenelle, they are not quite ready to let go of her mom, Barbara. She has permanent custody of Jace, Jenelle's eldest son, and temporary custody of her daughter, Ensley. The grandmother has been posting pictures of her grandchildren and fans are commenting that they still want her on the show. One fan wrote, according to PopCulture.com: "Loving all the update pictures Barb! you will be sorely missed on Teen Mom 2!" Another said, "I wish you could stay and replace Jenelle."
MTV has not yet commented on Barbara's standing with Teen Mom 2. If she does remain on the show, she would not be allowed to film scenes with her daughter.
There were several arguments following Jenelle and David's latest court hearing last week. Barbara accused Jenelle of showing affection to her daughter only because there were cameras around. David also confronted Jenelle's ex, Nathan Griffith, and asked him, "What are you hanging around the paparazzi for?" Nathan did not get a chance to respond because David drove away, but not before he flipped him off. Nathan said he would file for a restraining order but, according to reports, he has not followed through yet.
