According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, an Instagram clip was released of Barbara allegedly urging the girls from ‘Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant’ to be careful about how they spend their MTV paychecks. She told them not to spend it on their friends and not let fame change their personalities. Former Teen Mom 2 grandma Barbara Evans recently shared these words of wisdom, citing her own daughter Jenelle Evans as a cautionary tale.
“…look out – listen to me, I’ll give you one piece of advice – don’t get caught up in this fame and don’t blow, no seriously, your money,” Barbara says in the background of the video. “…Don’t get caught up in fame because it’s going to ruin your life.” She added, “…even Jenelle, she spent so much money buying cars, boats, everything for her friends, what the fuck are you guys NUTS? You know, going on trips,” says Barbara.
Jenelle hasn’t found a job since she was fired from MTV in 2019, despite repeated attempts. She was supposed to start two podcasts, GirlS**t and The Jenelle Evans Podcast, but neither of them picked up. She also unsuccessfully tried her hand as a social media influencer, but eventually found a steady stream of income when she joined OnlyFans, where she makes an estimated $3,000 a month, MONSTERS and CRITICS reported.
