Jenelle Evans has addressed recent speculation surrounding her 14-year-old son, Jace, who was reported as a runaway on August 15 amid concerns over her relationship with husband David Eason. The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Jace’s safe return home after the incident. Jenelle, explaining the situation, emphasized that teenage behavior is part of parenting, stating, “Jace got in trouble at school, we decided to take his phone away and that’s when he decided to run off,” per OK! Magazine. She emphasized that their challenges are typical of raising children and unrelated to her marriage struggles with David.

Rachel Leviss has broken her silence. Appearing on Bethenny Frankel‘s ReWives podcast, she made several claims, including that she and cast mate Ariana Madix were only “acquaintances who became friends through the show,” and compensation on the show was “not fair.”
