Jenelle Evans

I’m An Inspiration, Y'all ...

Makes Teen Moms FREAK OUT!!

7/20/2015 2:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans is to teen moms, what Caitlyn Jenner is to the transgender community -- a courageous hero.

Sounds outrageous, until you see this video. The freshly engaged ‘Teen Mom 2’ star was on the Sunset Strip when 2 grown women lose their minds over spotting Jenelle.

They've got something big in common with her, and can't wait to share some words of encouragement. Watch ... Jenelle seems as shocked as we are by the admiration.

The ESPYs might want to consider her next year. She IS an undefeated boxer, after all.

Sorry I'm Not Sorry

About Explosive Video With My Dog

7/6/2015 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans never thought the Internet would explode over her dog playing with fireworks in a gnarly 4th of July video -- because, as she puts it ... they do it on "America's Funniest Home Videos."

Jenelle tells TMZ that it was all a misunderstanding after letting her dog, Jax, play fetch with a lit firework during her party in Myrtle Beach. On a video she posted of the stunt ... it sounds like she tells Jax to fetch the firework -- and that's what got people pissed. 

Jenelle deleted her post off social media once the backlash started. She tells us she thought the vid was innocent, and adds ...  she saw the same thing on 'AFV.' 

Don't get it twisted though -- she says she's NOT sorry about letting Jax play with explosives, but she's sorry people were offended.

She insists the dog is fine, and she'd pull the same stunt next July.

... But You Can't See It

EXCLUSIVE

0630-mackenzie-mckee-vivid-TMZ-01Mackenzie McKee has gone to Vivid Entertainment about a sex tape, telling them if they dare release it she will nail their ass harder than Farrah Abraham's ever was. 

TMZ obtained a letter Mackenzie's lawyer fired off to the porn giant, acknowledging there's a tape but warning it will remain private, or else.

It's unclear how Vivid got hold of the tape, but here's what IS clear ... the only way Vivid can release the video is if she signs off, and her lawyer has given Vivid 10 days to declare its intentions.

As for her sex tape partner, it's unclear who it is, but she's been a married woman for 2 years.

Please Invest ...

In My Breasts!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0518_mackenzie_mckee_twitterMackenzie McKee wants to turn her mosquito bites into mountains…and, best of all, she wants you to pay for it. 

The "Teen Mom 3" star has started a fundraising page on MyFreeImplants.com -- a kickstarter of sorts for boob jobs (who knew?). 

According to her crowdfunding profile, McKee – a self-proclaimed fitness nut -- feels going under the knife will make her body “more proportionate” and help her take home gold at fitness and bikini competitions. She's looking to upgrade to a full C cup.

Also, it can't hurt that estranged husband Josh is out of the picture ... since he'd put the kibosh on her boosting her rack.

Mackenzie already has Bev Hills surgeon Dr. Neal Handel on standby -- but she still has a looooong way to go. As of now, she's only tallied up about $20 of her $5k goal.

Just think people ... if 2,000 of you donate the price of one cup of coffee -- a 20-year-old girl can get new boobs.

Marriage, and Ring

In the Toilet

EXCLUSIVE

Mackenzie McKee Marriage"Teen Mom" star Mackenzie McKee may have wrecked more than her car last month when she drove it into a ditch ... because hubby Josh just 86d her ring and walked out for good.

Sources close to the couple say their two year marriage has been on the rocks for a while. The breaking point was when Mackenzie crashed her uninsured, new Kia Sorento. 301 Shakes stepped up and threw her $10k to cover the damage, but it wasn't enough for Josh.

They had a huge blowout last weekend, Josh said he was done, threw her ring in the toilet and stormed out.

When Mackenzie came on TMZ Live, there were warning signs ... she said she crashed because she was out searching for his "no good huntin' hog ass."

If things do go down divorce road ... it won't be too costly, we're told the ring cost $398.

Or in "Teen Mom" terms: about 22 cases of Natty Light.

Farrah Abraham

On Her Way to Becoming

Dr. Backdoor Teen Mom

4/12/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham Plastic Surgeon
Farrah Abraham
doesn't have the proper resumé to be a plastic surgeon but she's actually getting off the pole in an attempt to make it happen ... in the form of an apprenticeship.

The former "Teen Mom" star -- who told us last week about this new career goal -- will be sitting in on various cosmetic procedures with her new mentor, Dr. Sergio Alvarez.

Dr. Alvarez tells TMZ Farrah will shadow him this summer at his Miami medical office. She will have a front row seat to a butt lift, nose job, and the all-encompassing "Mommy Makeover" -- tummy tuck, boob job and lipo.

Farrah tells us she's excited and thinks her personal experiences (we assume she means the plastic surgery and not her sex tape) will help her help others. 

Becoming an actual plastic surgeon takes a lot longer than nine months, so we'll see if she actually follows through with it.

Ex "Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant" star Mackenzie McKee got a case of the shakes -- the good kind that'll help her cover expensive repairs on the SUV she drove into a ditch. 

A source close to the situation says McKee is one of the best promoters for 310 Shakes -- and when the company got wind of her accident ... it stepped up with $10,500 she needed to help fix her ride.

TMZ broke the story ... Mackenzie said her diabetes caused her to zone out and drive her new and uninsured Kia off the road.

We're told the cash came without strings ... 310 just told her to keep up the good work -- a reference to her promoting skills. Not so much her driving.

Farrah Abraham is an example to young women on what NOT to do -- and yet pre-teen girls are flocking to her like she's a modern day Mother Teresa. Apologies to Mother Teresa's spirit.

Abraham and her sparkling resume -- teen mom, stripper, porn star, author, DUI arrestee -- were leaving Planet Hollywood in NYC ... when an alarmingly young fan stopped her for a photo. 

And then we got an even bigger shock as Farrah revealed she's going to become a plastic surgeon! Seriously ... she says.

The phrase, "Do what you know" comes to mind ...

The MTV star told us on TMZ Live ... she was looking for Josh when she drove her Kia Sorento into a ditch.

Decision making is not necessarily her strong point.
