Jenelle Evans Spills on “Eye-Opening“ Book, Which ‘Teen Mom 2’ Eps Make Her Cry — Exclusive (VIDEO)


It was over two years ago that Jenelle Evans first revealed to Wetpaint that she’d be writing a book, and here we are in 2017, and it’s finally getting released!

So naturally, the Teen Mom 2 star returned to our NYC offices to chat about Read Between the Lines, her new memoir that, unlike her co-stars’ literary works, features actual diary entries from her childhood.

Speaking of her childhood, the 25-year-old reveals if she’s heard from her dad since she wrote about him in the book — “I haven’t talked to him since I was 12,” she admits — and says she’s estranged from her siblings, Ashleigh and Colin, too.

“My sister, she’s not loyal to me as a sister… my brother’s just the same way. I don’t wanna be around negativity anymore.”

The mom of three, who writes in the book that her mother Barbara called her a “whore” while pregnant with Jace, also thinks the book will be “eye-opening” for Babs to read.

“I think it will be very eye-opening to her, the way I was raised and the reason why I’m so angry towards her today… there’s a lot of hurtful things that a lot of people have no idea about.”

Watch the video above to find out more about Jenelle’s book and her complicated family dynamics, plus to find out which old Teen Mom 2 episodes make her “cry the whole time” she watches them.

And stay tuned to Wetpaint for wedding deets and more exclusive scoop from Jenelle!

Read Between the Lines comes out Tuesday, July 25. Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
