TEEN Mom star Jenelle Evans has thrown shade at the editors of the show in a Q&A about her experience being on TV.

Jenelle, 29, took to TikTok to answer a question from a fan who wanted to know whether or not the star “missed being on Teen Mom”.

The former reality star took the opportunity to list the things she didn’t miss about being on TV before diving into the things she loved about it.

And one thing threw shade directly at the editors of Teen Mom, who she suggested didn’t show the good in her life as it “didn’t make ratings”.

Sitting in her “she-shed” in a t-shirt and baseball cap, Jenelle filmed herself as she went into detail about the pros and cons of Teen Mom.

“That’s a really good question – do I miss being on Teen Mom,” she responded to the fan’s comment from a previous video.

“I do not miss the reunions and I do not miss the way I wasn’t allowed to be involved with editing,” Jenelle began.

“But I do miss sharing my story with you guys. I do miss you guys watching my kids grow up as well. I also miss the fact you guys relate to my story.”

She continued: “New chapters happen in life and some close – but there are milestones that the kids have been achieving and you don’t see any of that.”

Hinting back to how she was portrayed on Teen Mom, Jenelle concluded: “There’s so much good that has happened in my life since TV but that doesn’t make ratings.”

In the comments section of the video, Jenelle found herself arguing with trolls who claimed she simply “missed the money” from the MTV series.

One joked: “You miss the money tho,” before Jenelle retorted, “I make almost as much being self employed at home.”

Another mused: “She misses the money,” as the controversial TV personality quickly responded back: “Nope.”
