Jenelle Evans has never been one to shy away from speaking her truth but a contract prevented her from sharing anything too deep -- until now.

The former MTV "Teen Mom" star opened up about her time on the show, her former castmates and what's next for her during a chat on iClick TV's "Dirty Reality" podcast.

"Over the years I was just very open and honest and raw and then I got to the point where it was hard for me to trust [the producers] anymore," Jenelle said of her time on the popular show about the struggles of being a young parent.

"I didn’t know what was about to air," she continued. "We would film happy scenes and it would never make the cut. I just felt like my reputation to them was 'the bad one' and I just feel like I got cut off there and couldn’t continue."

"I did an interview recently and I told them, 'You know, I feel chewed up and spit out with Hollywood life'," the 28-year-old added.

Jenelle was fired from the show in early 2019, but in the months that followed there were rumors of her making a comeback, which she kind of confirmed in a roundabout way. She explained to the hosts that after she left her husband (they have since reunited), David Eason, and went to live in Tennessee, MTV producers wanted to collect footage of her with her children.

"They were thinking about kicking Jade off the show," she revealed. "But ultimately they didn't because I had to move back to North Carolina because I couldn't afford a mortgage and rent."

While "Teen Mom" seems to be a thing of the past for the controversial reality star, she's looking forward to her future.

"I’m moving on to new things and better things," Jenelle said. "I have a new team I’m working with and we got some projects going on behind the scenes so I’m excited for whenever I can announce that."
