So it seems that Star Magazine actually did a little reporting (instead of just sitting in their offices and making up stories with little or no truth to them.) They, like The Ashley, must have been wondering while watching the first episode of Teen Mom 2 where the hell is Jenelle‘s dad? Her mom, Barbara, has a prominent role in the show (since she seems to be the only person that takes care of poor Baby Jace.) But where the hell is her dad?!
Apparently, according to Star, he’s been living under a rock, completely unaware that his daughter has become MTV’s next cash cow trainwreck!
Reporters hustled to be the first to find and interview someone from his family and found his sister (who would be Jenelle’s aunt, just FYI). Her name is Judy Ruane. Turns out the entire Evans clan had no idea that a member of their family was a mother-pushing, pot-smoking MTV reality star!
According to the story on Star‘s website,
“None of us has seen or heard from Jenelle since she and her older sister and brother, Ashleigh and Colin, moved to North Carolina in the late 1990s with her mom after her parents got divorced,” Jenelle’s aunt, Judy Ruane, tells Star in an exclusive interview. Judy says her brother Robert was cut out of his children’s lives completely.”
Robert, (or the ‘forgotten father’ as Star called him) had no idea his daughter had even given birth!
The article continues…
“He was shocked — there was total silence on the phone,” Judy tells Star. “He clearly was stunned by what’s happened.”
What, no exclusive video of the aunt breaking the news to the dad?! I’m disappointed in you, Star. You’re usually much less classy than this! I would have expected them to have that camera all up in his face when he found out so they could catch every money-making tear on film!
And don’t argue that ‘Jenelle is really a great mom, she’s just edited that way.’ She screams and pushes her mom, tries to act all hard yet relies on her mom for virtually everything, has no job (being a reality TV star doesn’t count.)
Ugh. I feel bad for Robert, even if he is a kid-abandoner.
With all this crappy parenting going on, Dr. Drew should seriously consider opening up a home for all of these poor Teen Mom babies! (Well, at least AMBO’s and Jenelle‘s. All the other ones are doing ok– so far!)
Can’t wait to see what other white trash shenanigans Jenelle gets into next week! Those other girls are a complete snoozefest compared to her!
