So, what’s a reality TV famewhore to do when ending their engagement to another reality TV famewhore? Tweet it! Yesterday in a twitter rant of epic proportions Nathan Griffith called off his engagement (of less than a month) to Jenelle Evans!
Have no fear, however, because after erupting into a vitriolic twitter feud over what appeared to be Jenelle communicating with RECENT ex-husband Courtland Rogers, the Teen Mom 2 star and Nathan are back together. Because it’s not like Nathan is gonna give-up that MTV paycheck and get a real J-O-B!
Let’s break this down (I warn you now – get some wine.)
Of course everyone immediately suspected MTV either paid for the ring or Nathan used the Teen Mom 2 star’s MTV money to buy it because generally unemployed people with three children to marginally support cannot afford diamonds that cost upwards of $4,000! Especially when you add court and legal fees to the bills they have to pay.
Of course, unemployed people generally don’t go on luxury vacations to St. Thomas with a group of friends, either! The Jenelle insists that Nathan both bought the ring himself and also paid for Jenelle, and 2 of their close friends to be in St. Thomas for the totally unplanned and impromptu proposal!
With Thanksgiving just two days away, I must give thanks for the technology that allows me a live stream of Jenelle EvansandCourtland Rogers watching Teen Mom 2. Amazing, right? Before last night's UStream event, Jenelle tweeted, "Courtland gave me a HUGE surprise today. I'm so in love and you will see the surprise on UStream!!"
After listening to Jenelle and Courtland discuss last night's Teen Mom 2 for what felt like eons, Jenelle announced that she and Courtland are engaged! She added, “I’m not pregnant, but there is a reason behind why he got engaged to me. If you knew the reason, you would understand why we are taking this step. I hope you guys are happy for us.”
Last Wednesday, Jenelle sent out a twitpic that sparked engagement rumors. The backstory… Jenelle and Courtland went to the mall. While Jenelle ate her lunch and stressed that her missing-at-the-mall boyfriend was cheating on her, Courtland secretly bought several carats of diamonds. Needless to say, all cheating worries were forgotten when Courltand surprised Jenelle with the rings. Jenelle tweeted a picture of the rings, explaining that they were "just you're my girlfriend" rings. Less than a week later, there's a new ring and an official engagement.
First comes marriage baby, then comes baby engagements, then comes college rehab, then comes messy breakups, then comes "just friends" diamond rings. Jenelle Evans! What are we going to do with you?
Jenelle's whirlwind romance with Courtland Rogers began around October 6. Jenelle made it Twitter official, when she tweeted @Courtland, "You will always be my boo!" The love birds moved in together after only two weeks, but they broke up before Jenelle finished unpacking her Uggs. Seconds later, Jenelle had a change of heart, remembering that Courtland is her boo!
Since then, Jenelle has been too busy promoting Teen Mom 2and sharing kiss-y face and new house twitpics to create too much drama. UNTIL TODAY.
The surprising thing about the now defunct impending nuptials is the reason WHY Gary and Jenelle split. No it wasn’t her alleged drug use, or her twitter antics, or the accusations of domestic violence, or the scandalous photos of her surging around the web, or the legal drama… it was over an alleged stolen necklace.
Taking to twitter – where else – the Teen Mom 2 star announced the pair had called it quits when Gary reportedly stole her $300 Tiffany necklace and took it to base with him. Jenelle accuses him of breaking into her house to get the necklace and posted a photo of the broken door jam. The photo is below.
