Yet another 16 and Pregnant alum has gotten a boob job -- and we may have a new least favorite trend! Jenelle Evans, most recently a star of Teen Mom 2, had surgery on Wednesday to increase her cup size from an A to a C. The 20-year-old reality star tweeted that she "just got my boobies finished" and is now home recovering, with the assistance of her best friend Allison. And despite the pain, she's happy with the results.
"Perfect size and now the pain No good :/ but I'll live lol," she tweeted on Wednesday.
The mother of 2-year-old Jace declared her intention to get breast implants earlier this month in an online video.
"When I get new boobs, I'm going to cry -- I will be so touched," she gushed. "It will be like a deaf person being able to hear for the first time."
We'll ignore that insensitive, ill-advised and completely off-the-mark metaphor for the moment, and instead remind you of something Jenelle said last spring, while explaining why she gave custody of Jace to her mother Barbara.
"When he is older, I will tell him I was really young and I couldn't put a roof over my own head, let alone his," she told Us Weekly.
So she doesn't have money to put a roof over her son's head, but she has a few thousand dollars set aside to get a boob job?
Crazy as it is, Evans is actually the third Teen Mom to go under the knife (that we know of). Farrah Abraham took out a bank loan last year for her cosmetic surgery, which was the subject of July's season premiere. Around the same time, Maci Bookout started looking bustier, with many outlets reporting that she'd had breast implants (though she hasn't confirmed it).
Alhough studies show that Teen Mom is a good teaching tool for viewers, you have to wonder how it affects the families involved. If these girls weren't on the MTV payroll, would that boob-job money be going to support their children? Or conversely, would they be scraping along without any money if not for reality TV?
There are definitely times when the Teen Moms seem to forget they're not on Jersey Shore. On the plus side, we'd rather see the moms getting plastic surgery than going to jail or getting into fights. If bigger boobs are what it takes to keep Jenelle on the straight and narrow, then maybe they're worth it. Maybe.
