As The Ashley previously told you, the show’s bigwig producers are meeting on Wednesday in New York to discuss Jenelle’s future on the show. While Jenelle and David have pulled controversial moves before, The Ashley’s sources told her this incident “was being taken very seriously…for once.”
Earlier in the day, Jenelle attempted to explain away her husband’s homophobic tweets via a statement to TMZ. In the statement she promised that David would “keep his comments to himself from now on.”
Jenelle had yet to publicly comment on David’s firing and, at press time, her fate on the show remains unknown.
