This Halloween will go down in history for being the day that Jenelle Evans left David Eason.

In the past year, David's been accused of countless acts that would leave any mother questioning the future of her marriage. His alleged killing of their French bulldog even resulted in MTV's decision to no longer include their family in filming for Teen Mom. Nonetheless, Jenelle stayed by his side as they endured investigations from child protective services and the police, nearly resulting in loss of custody of their children. 

So to say fans of Teen Mom are in shock after this morning's announcement of a breakup would be an understatement. But, in addition to shock, there seems to be a sense of relief.

In an exclusive statement to E! News Briana DeJesus says, "I am proud of her." Moreover, Briana says she's sure that Jenelle will "be back" on the Teen Mom series now that David is out of the picture.

Likewise, Kailyn Lowry is happy that Jenelle made this major life decision. "I wish her the best," she shares.

However, she doesn't know if there's room for Jenelle on the Teen Mom cast anymore. The way she sees it, there are already six moms on the show and she thinks it "would make it hard to tell everyone's stories with the limited amount of time we each get."

Regardless of what Briana or Kailyn think, it seems that Jenelle isn't concerned about the Teen Mom franchise at the moment. In her statement, she said that she's focused on "what is best for me, and for my kids."

"I've lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn't been pretty. But its been my life. Like anyone else I want what's best for my kids and I want to be happy," she explains. "With time away from Teen Mom I've started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I'm starting that now."
