The fallout from the implosion of the infamous Girl Sh*t podcast that never was continues. Three weeks after a lawsuit was filed in part over claims that former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Eason was fired from the podcast, former Girl Sh*t participant Gabbie Egan is sharing her side of what went down — including a confirmation that 90 Day Fiance star Deavan Clegg told her (and many others involved with the project) that she was pregnant.
Gabbie Egan is a social media influencer most famous for her posts on TikTok. She and approximately 16 other women signed on to be a part of Girl Sh*t, a multimedia project with its central focus being a podcast. Jenelle Eason was one of the producers for the project, and she helped recruit many of the participants — including Gabbie and Deavan.
The project was announced on March 29 with a planned launch party in Chattanooga, Tennessee 2 days later on March 31. Many of the participants were in town for the launch event, including Jenelle, Deavan and Gabbie — all three of which were staying together at the same Airbnb.
As is always the case any time Jenelle announces any sort of new business partnership, the other Girl Sh*t participants were bombarded online with backlash for choosing to work with Jenelle.
YouTuber and Instagrammer John Yates revealed on the day of the scheduled Girl Sh*t launch party that Jenelle had reportedly been fired. He also said that Jenelle was asked not to show up at the launch party, but she and husband David Eason went regardless. They were denied access to the VIP section of the venue where the launch party was being held.
Jenelle’s lawsuit against John Yates
A federal class action lawsuit was filed on May 18 against John Yates and others with one of the plaintiffs being Jenelle Eason. In the lawsuit, Jenelle claims that John Yates stating she was fired from the podcast “was untrue and affected Plaintiff Eason and her business opportunities.”
More from the lawsuit:
Defendant Yates indicated that Plaintiff Eason was let go and was asked not to attend the event due to Defendant Yate’s comments on his live broadcast, and he stated that when she showed up to the event, she was denied access to the VIP area and was asked to leave or otherwise excused, which is not true.
There will be more on the lawsuit claims in a minute.
Gabbie Egan explains Girl Sh*t implosion
Gabbie shared two 10-minute videos on Instagram detailing her experience with the Girl Sh*t podcast and the project’s sudden, dramatic demise. (Full videos embedded below.) In the videos, Gabbie confirms John Yates’ claim that project participants were told on the day of the launch party that Jenelle was fired.
“The Girl Sh*t podcast pretty much ended as soon as it started. It was an entire sh*t show,” Gabbie explains early in Part One.
Gabbie says that it was her understanding that Jenelle was one of the producers for the podcast. She also confirms that it was Jenelle who recruited both her and Deavan to be a part of it. Gabbie drove to Chattanooga for the launch, and she shared an Airbnb with Deavan and Jenelle. Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, and daughter, Ensley, were also staying at the Airbnb.
I’m not oblivious, like, I know that Jenelle has a very controversial and checkered past. She has a bunch of sh*t that she’s done that I don’t agree with, and I’ve told her to her face, like, “Whoa, that’s some f***ed up sh*t,” you know? I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I actively believe that Jenelle is changing into a better person. She has a very f***ed up past, yes. Same with David. But, the people that I met when I was working on this cast definitely weren’t the people that I read about in the media. Jenelle and David were completely different. They were very kind. They weren’t fighting. David wasn’t crazy.
In her second video, Gabbie iterated that David was very nice to her whenever they interacted. “He was nothing but kind to everybody. Yeah, David, I guess he can be a d*ck, but he wasn’t a d*ck while he was with us at all.”
The video does a cut as Gabbie realizes she should include a caveat in regards to her show of support for the Easons. “Does the fact that Jenelle and David are changing excuse their past? Absolutely not. But I feel like we should give everybody an opportunity to grow and learn from their past mistakes, and cancel culture is very toxic.”
Jenelle’s “firing” from Girl Sh*t
Gabbie says that she, Deavan, and the Easons got along great for the first day she was in Chattanooga. Then, Jenelle started feeling sick and Deavan started reading up on Jenelle and David’s history. Tensions began to rise as Deavan tried to distance herself from the Easons — both by leaving the Airbnb and also by telling the other Girl Sh*t producers that she no longer wanted to be a part of the project if Jenelle was involved.

Gabbie says that Deavan eventually got her way. “The producers finally called Jenelle and [were], like, ‘Hey, you can’t come to the launch party.'”
More from Gabbie debunking Jenelle’s claims in the lawsuit:
People were telling [Jenelle], “You’re not coming to the launch party.” The main guy who runs the sh*t was, like, “you’re not coming.” Like, pretty much “you’re fired,” OK? Then, an email that John Yates leaked that Deavan sent in to John Yates, said pretty much that Jenelle had been let go from the podcast and she was no longer going to be a part of it.
Jenelle was, in fact, a producer on the podcast. Even though she was “let go” and not allowed to attend the launch party, that doesn’t mean she was technically fired. I don’t know and cannot confirm. We were told that she was let go from the podcast, but she still had that contract saying that she was indefinitely a producer on the show — on the podcast. So was she let go? I don’t know. She still had a contract that said she was a producer, but we were told that she was fired.
Gabbie then confirms that security did not allow Jenelle into the VIP section of the venue where the launch party was held.

Gabbie on Deavan Clegg being pregnant
Deavan had told everybody on the set that she was pregnant. She told all the cast members, she told the producers, she told me, she told Jenelle, she told David — everybody was well aware that she was pregnant. It makes me really uncomfortable to talk about the fact that Deavan was pregnant because this is one of the things that she’s accusing Jenelle of lying about. She’s accusing Jenelle of lying that she was pregnant, ‘exposing’ her, but I have screen shot proof that she was pregnant.
Here are Gabbie’s Instagram posts, including her videos as well as screen capped text message conversations with Jenelle and Deavan:
