Reality shows are not as they seem, and sometimes they are the complete opposite of the real world. Tana Mongeau recently posted a video on YouTube to clarify all the drama that has been going on in her life lately.
The 21-year-old YouTube star opened up about the hard time she has been going through for the last six months.
The drama started last year when she all of a sudden married Jake Paul, which ended fast. Later she confessed that the marriage was not legally signed on paper and that the ceremony was just to celebrate their relationship.

i’m probably gonna be posting wedding photos longer than we’re married for but i felt like i had to start with these- these photos were taken minutes after someone literally threw an entire drink at us at the fucking altar. obviously, like everything happening at this wedding- that wasn’t apart of my plan (or any ideal for a regular wedding). but somehow amidst all of the chaos and cameras, we grabbed eachother’s faces and the second we both locked eyes and smiled… it made it all better. everything was okay. if not, better. it kinda set the tone for everything we’ll go through together. probably not easy, or conventional, but throughout all of the chaos, if we can just grab eachother, the world stops spinning for a second. i’m never really prepared for what might be thrown at us but i’m happy i get to deal with it with my best friend by my side. it’s a beautiful thing that every single time someone wants to take the power away from us and put us down, we are able to come together and let positivity & love help us power through that. i wouldn’t have wanted to marry you in any other unconventional fucked up way, Jake. I love you. 7.28.19. ❤️ (apologies in advance for the amount of pictures i’ll post over the next week)
Tana’s honest video is an hour-long, even though she thought that it would be longer because she had a lot to say.
She admits that filming this footage was not easy because it can be understood in many different ways, both giving her a better and worse reputation.
“A lot of the things I’m about to say hold a lot of weight,” Tana explained.
She was candid about her abusive parents, her mental health, and all the issues that have been going on in her life.
After some reality show episodes, people labeled her as a “bad and rude person.” Tana explained that footage editing made her look very impolite and arrogant and that it would be so much different if she edited the show.
Although she admits it would not be interesting for the audience otherwise, she still feels terrible about getting bad publicity.
