MTV has stood by Teen Mom OG veteran Amber Portwood’s side after she was arrested for alleged domestic abuse, and was seemingly caught on tape threatening to harm her baby daddy.

Now, ousted Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans’ mom told RadarOnline.com exclusively that she and her family should not have been fired.

Barbara Evans broke her silence for the first time following the shocking news that the entire family was not filming Teen Mom 2 after Jenelle's husband David Eason admittedly killed the family dog.

“Why should Jenelle and I lose our money, and why is MTV supporting Amber when Jenelle and I have done nothing wrong?” Barbara said. "We were on the show for 10 years too, and they stopped filming with us."

“Why is this fair? Why were we let go, and she wasn't?"

As RadarOnline.com first reported, Amber was arrested for domestic battery on July 5, 2019 after allegedly attacking her baby daddy Andrew Glennon with a machete as he held their 1-year-old son James.

“MTV supports her and isn’t taking her off the show,” Barbara claimed to RadarOnline.com, adding that she and her daughter brought the "highest ratings" to the franchise.

“I was the only one on that show who was on the billboard in Times Square,” she pointed out.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Jenelle made $400,000 a season for the show, according to court records, and Barbara confirmed that she was making the same amount before she lost her income.

“Jenelle and I made the same amount of money,” Barbara told RadarOnline.com. “I make the same amount of money as Jenelle and the other girls on the show. This is not fair.”

Meanwhile, a source close to Amber told RadarOnline.com the two situations are totally different.

"Amber didn't kill a dog," the source said. "And she has not been convicted of a crime."
