These days, most Teen Mom 2 fans find out about the latest cast member feuds not from the show itself, but from social media.
In fact, in some cases, several months pass between the time when two of the Moms start taking shots at each other on Twitter, and the time when the beef is finally featured on MTV.
Fortunately, these latest rivalries are so entertaining we’re more than happy to watch them unfold twice.
Take the latest drama involving Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry, for example.
Back in January, Barbara Evans threatened to “kill Kail” during an Instagram Live session with her depraved daughter.
Amazingly, Jenelle briefly served as the voice of reason in this scenario, muttering, “No comment” and physically distancing herself from her mother.
“Just chill the f–k out, oh my God,” Jenelle said to her mother at one point.
“Kail’s probably watching this s–t right now.”
The next morning, however, Jenelle seemed to be singing a different tune, as she now shared her mother’s view that the remark was nothing more than a harmless joke.
“You can’t say sh-t these days without anyone getting offended,” said Jenelle.
Speaking with TM2 producer Kristen, Kail revealed that she certainly didn’t find the comment amusing.
In fact, it seems Lowry considered quitting Teen Mom 2 as a direct result of Barbara’s threat.
“I don’t want to be a part of a franchise that allows that kind of behavior,” Kail said.
“I’m not getting on Instagram Live talking about killing anyone. Anytime that I talk about them is in response to something else,” Lowry added.
“At some point, you have to choose to disassociate with people and I don’t want to associate with them or the DeJesuses. I just don’t.”
So is Kail still considering cutting ties with the show that made her famous?
Well, she’s still no fan of the Evanses, but it seems she’s come to terms with the fact that she’ll need to share screentime with them if she hopes to continue racking in those MTV bucks.
Of course, that doesn’t mean her ultimatum went ignored by her bosses.
At the latest Teen Mom 2 reunion that filmed in New York earlier this month, the rest of the girls shot their interview segments on a day that Jenelle was not in the studio.
Not only that, Jenelle and husband David Eason were put up on a hotel in Philadelphia for “safety reasons,” while the rest of the girls stayed in Manhattan.
Sounds like Kail may have won this one, after all.
As for Jenelle’s thoughts on the situation, she says it’s all jealousy, dude”
“I think she’s envious of us and us reconnecting,” Jenelle said during the episode.
“None of her family wants anything to do with her and no one does because of the way she is.”
Yeah, we’re sure that’s it.
