There are few reality stars on television that can compete with Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans when it comes to providing a seemingly never-ending stream of explosive drama. But, there are a few, and one of them happens to be her mother.
Barbara Evans gets in the drama Thunderdome week after week and goes toe to toe with her daughter armed only with her Boston accent, an arsenal of witty retorts, and decibels – lots of decibels. These epic mother and daughter battles are some of the most memorable in reality show history and have even spawned Barbaraism internet memes such as “I seen ya with Kieffah!!!” and “High! High! You both high!”
Barbara’s charisma and boisterous charm have been captured perfectly by the parody Twitter account @BabsEvansMTV, which channels Barbara each and every day with commentary on everything going on in the world of Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, and 16 & Pregnant. But Babs Evans doesn’t stop there! She can also be caught sipping wine and offering up her take on everything from the Kardashians to politics, all with her trademark Boston accent and plenty enough capital letters to convey the appropriate amount of decibels.
We couldn’t be more pleased to be the first news agency on the planet to get an interview with the online phenomenon that is @BabsEvansMTV! She was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule of pretending to raise Jenelle and Jace to talk with us about everything from her preferred wine brands to Hooters waitresses. And following in the footsteps of such other similarly notable celebrities as Brad Pitt, Glenn Close, Francis Ford Coppola, Jennifer Aniston, and Martin Scorsese, Barbara tackles James Lipton’s infamous list of ten questions from Inside the Actors Studio!
So bust out that box of wine, pour a glass, pop some corn, and enjoy a heapin’ helpin’ of Bahbrah!
Jenelle recently announced she and Kieffer are back together once again, that he has a car and a job, and he has changed. What do you think about that, and what do you have to say to Kieffer this time around?
Well,my first thought was “FRIGGIN CHRIST”. Aftah I had a glass a wine n calmed down, I told Jenelle “I SEEN YAH WIFF KEIFFAH” Then I told Keiffah if he hurts Jenelle this time, I’m gonna cut his bawls awf. Plain n simple.
If Kieffer has indeed changed, he’s not the only one. Jenelle recently had breast augmentation surgery performed. What was your reaction to that?
Foahtunately, I’ve alwhays been blessed wiff a nice paih a bubbies. I told Jenelle “Yah body is yah temple. If yah want biggah bubbies, go fah it. Just don’t be dressin’ like a tramp n haven em hang out all ovah tha damn place.”
You’ve obviously had your hands full raising three kids, one of which is way more than a handful. What advice would you offer to other parents trying to raise a difficult child?
I find it helps TA JUST FRIGGIN SCREAM AT EM AWL THA DAMN TIME.
What are your thoughts on MTV announcing there will be a Teen Mom 3 with four new girls chosen from the most recent season of 16 and Pregnant?
Well I can awlmost guahantee weah gonna meet some friggin LOOSAHS.
Jenelle isn’t the only Evans who has had relationship problems recently. Your boyfriend Mike reportedly left you for a Hooters waitress. What kind of wisdom would you like to share with the ladies out there about men?
When yah man says he’s goin ta HOOTAH’S fah tha wings moah than 3 times a week, the truth is he’s prahbly really goin fah tha HOOTAHS.
Considering you are currently single, here’s a hypothetical question for you. If all three were available, which Teen Mom granddad would Babs Evans ask first – Butch Baltierra, Dr. Randy Houska, or Michael Abraham?
Well, YAH TELL ME. “Butch” or “DOCTAH Randy Houska?” Plus, Barbara Houska has a nice ring ta it.
I notice you didn’t mention Michael Abraham, who I assume was your second choice. Is there any parenting advice you would like to give him and Debra in regards to Farrah Abraham?
That’s a hahd one. I don’t like tha attitude on that gurl. My advice is wine, lotsa wine.
You don’t just tweet about Jenelle and her Teen Mom pals. What other shows and celebrities are you a fan of?
I’ve watched that JOISEY SHOAH a couple times, holy frig. Late at night, I LUV ta watch tha “Golden gurls”. Awlso fah some reason, I can’t stop watchin that damn Kahdashian show. I keep waiting fah that Kanye west fellah ta finally SMILE.
And finally, to wrap things up, I thought I might take a page from Frank Lipton’s book and use his list of 10 adapted Marcel Proust questions used on each and every episode of Inside the Actors Studio.
