Apparently looking to upstage Amber, Farrah, Matt and Simon, Jenelle Evans brought the crazy to the Teen Mom 2 reunion this weekend.
Not only did Jenelle fight Nathan Griffith at the end-of-season taping, but her current husband, David Eason, upped the ante …
… by pulling a knife during a drunken meltdown.
According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, “all of the cast was drinking and having a good time while filming this party” over the weekend.
(Scenes from which will be used during an end-of-the-year clip show featuring both casts, so the MTV cameras were definitely rolling.)
Unfortunately, someone had to take it too far, and to no one’s surprise, it was David, who “was acting too drunk and the producers noticed.”
“They cut him off at the bar,” The Ashley’s source says. “When David found out they wouldn’t serve him more alcohol he got super mad.”
What is a grown man to do in that situation?
Storm off, whip out a knife and start slashing a bunch of balloons in an adjacent room, of course. Seriously, this happened.
“He took out his pocketknife and started slashing the balloons with it,” the source says, an account corroborated by another witness.
“This took place a few feet away from where the cameras were filming, so there’s a slight chance it may be captured on film.”
“It freaked everyone out,” the second source said.
“Everyone just kind of froze in disbelief.
“Jenelle realized everyone was creeped out by what had just happened and said he was ‘just having trouble getting through’ or something.”
We have no idea what that means, but understandably, the production team was very alarmed that David came on set with a knife at all.
How does that scenario even occur?
The insider says every “cast, crew, audience” member “had to go through [security], get patted down and wanded and have their bags checked.”
“The cast and crew have never had to do this before really [but] the production staff doesn’t want to take any chances now.”
“Things get really intense on these sets and they can’t have someone possessing a weapon of any kind,” the source adds.
“No one ever thought the day would come where they’d have to check their own cast for weapons,” but that’s David Eason for you.
“It’s gotten to the point where it’s not even funny anymore,” the insider says in conclusion. “People are legit feeling unsafe.”
No one was injured in the attack. Other than some poor balloons that had no idea what they were up against, of course.
Another source quoted by Hollywood Life confirms The Ashley’s account, adding that there “was no knife fight” but that it was weird.
“People started freaking out,” the source recalls, “because they thought it was gun shots, and filming had to be cut short.”
This was the night before Jenelle fought Nathan, the father of her second child Kaiser (the spitting image of Nathan, below).
Evans has quite a history, but are people jumping to conclusions here as a result and making too much out of this, though?
“As usual everyone is trying to make Jenelle look like she’s the crazy one,” the source said, “and David like he’s the bad guy.”
“The truth is Jenelle was really nervous to be in Vegas following the recent shooting, and she didn’t want to be in the hotel.”
Jenelle was “on edge” when her mom was “literally hugging and kissing Ashley (her sister) and telling how great it is to see her, how beautiful [she is].”
“It really pissed off Jenelle,” the source said, “so se ended up getting into an argument with Barbara then Nathan and Ashley both jumped in.”
“That started stirring up more drama.”
When David stepped in to try and calm things down, they all turned on him, saying he’s the one who’s always causing problems and fights.”
“The whole thing was just insane,” the source added of the reunion show melee in what sounds like the understatement of all time.
With Jenelle threatening to quit Teen Mom 2 over how she’s being portrayed this season, will this reunion be the final straw?
