EXCLUSIVE Jenelle Evans to appear on Judge Judy?

Teen Mom Jenelle Evans to appear on Judge Judy?

Jenelle Evans can add yet another entry on her long list of recent problems. The Teen Mom 2 star is reportedly being sued in small claims court after she failed to pay her former Facebook administrator, Sarah ReAnn, for the work she did for Jenelle on the blogging site Sulia. While considering her legal options, Sarah contacted the producers of Judge Judy and she says they are willing to take the case! Sarah says MTV has given its approval and now it’s just up to Jenelle!

“Just called MTV they said all I have to do is serve Jenelle the papers and she goes to court. Her contract doesn’t deny court cases,” Sarah revealed on Twitter, later adding, “Judge Judy’s producer has contacted me. We’ve been emailing back and forth for days. It might really happen.”

As far as the issue between Jenelle and Sarah, it all started over a month ago when Jenelle enlisted Sarah’s help to essentially take on her weekly requirements with Sulia, which pays its users by the view. In her deal with the “social interest” site, Jenelle must post a minimum number of updates every week, or else she would not be paid. However, things went south between the two when Sarah began copying and pasting other people’s work onto Jenelle’s account without giving credit — aka plagiarizing.

Jenelle was confronted about the issue by the writer of the original articles on the website Gather.com, after which she fired Sarah all together and began doing the posts herself. Jenelle was apparently paid for work done by Sarah, but Sarah never saw a dime of it. The matter isn’t exactly black and white given the plagiarism issue, but it would seem that Sarah would be entitled to her share of the revenue for the work that she did. (Of course, I’m not Judge Judy!)

We spoke with Sarah and she tells us that she feels Jenelle owes her more than $700, which shouldn’t scare Jenelle if she agrees to appear on the show. “The Judge Judy show pays for all air fare and the money I’ll receive,” Sarah says. “Jenelle doesn’t even have to pay out of pocket if she does it this way.” (A free trip to Hollywood with no real financial risk, even if she loses? I can’t see how Jenelle could pass that up!)

We also asked Sarah about the plagiarism issue and she tells us, “The last 10 were the only ones plagiarized.” And according to Sarah, it wasn’t even her idea to plagiarize other articles in the first place! “Jenelle told me to copy and paste and I listened of course.”

So how many “articles” did she write before those last ten? “I wrote 50 posts or more a week from November 31st till December 27th so, I don’t know, do the math.”

So what was the alleged deal with Jenelle? Sarah says she was to be paid on a weekly basis. “[Jenelle] promised me $300 at first, then went down to $200.”

Sarah tells us Jenelle gets between $800-$1,000 a week from Sulia, “and couldn’t pay me $200?!?” she exclaims. Sarah does admit that she didn’t walk away completely empty handed though. “She paid me $125 ONE time.”

Sarah says Jenelle is blaming Courtland for being unable to pay, and she says Courtland will also be named as a defendant in the case. That means we have the potential to see a Jenelle and Courtland reunion — as codefendants — on Judge Judy?!? Forget OJ and Casey Anthony, THIS would be the trial of the milleniums! Especially is Babs Evans is a witness in the case! Can you imagine Judge Judy and Babs Evans going at it?!? No, you can’t!

We reached out to Jenelle for comment, but haven’t heard back.

UPDATE – Jenelle just tweeted, “I am NOT going to be on Judge Judy, lmfao.” (A collective “Awwwwwwwwww…” can be heard ’round the world.)

UPDATE – Buzz60 picked up the story and did a great video report! Check it out:

    Seeing Judge Judy rip into Jenelle would be the most epic moment in the history of reality television.

    • I would weep happy tears and record to watch when I have a bad day. She wont go on there because she knows judge judy would straight up own and humiliate her.

  • Please

    This would be incredible.

  • Yes

    Please happen

  • Epic Karma

    I would DVR this so when Im having a bad day Id get a good laugh! Id love to hear what Judge Judy has to say to her!

  • I see Christmas has come very early this year.

  • Steph

    Jenelle just tweeted she would not be going on Judge Judy… Well this is a disappointment, I was REALLY looking forward to Judge Judy to tell Jenelle Evans EXACTLY what she thinks of her.

    • amberc88

      its because she cant handle the truth, and no amount of tears will get past judge judy, and jenelle knows that!

      • burkey

        Seriously.. even Jenelle is smart enough to know Judge Judy would rip her apart so she’s clearly just afraid..

    • If she’s ordered to court,she has no choice. This dosent mean it will be Judge Judy…sadly. I’d actually pay to see her rip idiot a new one or two.

  • Brittany

    There is no November 31st.
    I also find it odd that Janelle fired her right before she made the “pregnancy” announcement. Didn’t want to split that money, I guess. And yes, I hate my life for knowing that, lol.

  • Rebecca

    tbh I think Sarah seems like she’s looking for attention. I don’t believe that Sulia pays that much money, and I seriously doubt Jenelle would be forced to pay Sarah for something she didn’t even do. What, it hurt your fingers to copy paste? What a lazy ass.

    • Mia003

      She asked her to do it. Why would anyone waste their time doing something for free when they could be doing something else when they are not going to be paid. Jenelle didn’t want to write the articles so she asked her to and she did write some of the articles but when jenelle decided she didn’t want to pay her she started copying them. She needs to pay the girl because she asked her to do it for her.

  • amberc88

    the one lady that will put jenelle sooo far in her place hopefully she gets stuck there! I WILL BE WATCHING IF THIS HAPPENS! Judy is the scariest b!tch i have ever seen!

  • Hannah

    I’m sad now that this isn’t going to happen. To be honest I was more looking forward to (by some grace of god) having Babs show up and go at it with Judge Judy somehow. They both look similar and have a similar accent and temper so that would have been some DVR-worthy s**t right there. 😀

  • Kelly

    Even though it would be pretty epic to watch, I think the last thing jenelle needs is more t.v time. This Sarah girl is obviously looking for attention. She plagiarized therefore she should get nothing.

    • Mia003

      She only plagiarized when jenelle stopped paying her money.

  • karina

    I hope Judge Judy throws, like Barb would say, the book at Jenelle!

  • Ace

    Really?? $800-$1000 a week from Sulia?? Seems a lot to me, who the heck is funding this idiot and clicking her links? Why does she need to hire someone to write a few sentences for her when she does nothing else with her life?

  • Ashley

    Sarah is just trying to get more attention. She seems to eat up the attention she gets on twitter.

  • Whether it was her idea or not to plagiarize, you still plagiarized. That Sarah doesn’t seem to be bright at all. Would much rather see them on Judge Mathis though. He’s the only judge that will straight up call someone a

    ” Crackhead ” mid-case.

  • Judge Judy would have Jenelle in tears……that ugly face…boooohooo.
    She would need two blunts after that encounter. OMG,I would pay to see it.

  • Butch’s Law Degree

    Who is this Sarah girl? She seems buttmad that she isn’t noticed from leeching off Jenelle’s “fame”.
