Over the years, the Teen Mom cast has seen a lot of changes. Although Farrah Abraham was the first to part ways with MTV, many of the franchise stars followed not long after.
Teen Mom 2 has seen more shakeups than its OG counterparts, with Briana DeJesus and Jade Cline joining the cast as well as Jenelle Evans leaving.
But after Chelsea Houska confirmed she was quitting, fans wondered whether it would be cancelled altogether.
Looks like MTV had other plans – and the network just confirmed that Young and Pregnant star Ashley Jones will be replacing Chelsea on the show.
Like her now-fellow Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline, Ashley Jones originated on the spinoff Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant.
But despite attracting a cult following, the spinoff never made ratings as high as the original two shows. Although some thought this meant the end of Ashley Jones’ reality career, it looks like she’s moving on to bigger and better things: namely, replacing Chelsea Houska on Teen Mom 2.
Ashley’s addition to Teen Mom 2 has been confirmed by a source within MTV, according to People Magazine.
Ashley has yet to issue a statement about her return, but fans can likely expect to see a continuation of her up and down relationship with her boyfriend and the father of her child, Bariki Smith.
The two seem to be going strong these days, though, and have just celebrated a re-engagement.
“I’m marrying her y’all,” Bar recently shared on Instagram, captioning a video of Ashley showing off her stunning diamond ring.
Of course, Ashley has had a long history of not holding back when it comes to her Teen Mom co-stars, which came to a head in the most recent Young and Pregnant reunion.
But her biggest battle was with none other than Jenelle Evans over the former Teen Mom 2 stars’ racist posts. Luckily for Ashley, it seems like Jenelle won’t be working with MTV any time soon.
