Long-time Teen Mom fans know that feuds between cast members have a way of being reignited over and over, because these girls know how to hold grudges. Although there’s plenty of beef to go around among the constantly changing cast, Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus’s ongoing feud takes up more than its fair share.
Although the stars never really got along great, the real issues started when Briana started dating Kailyn’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
Now, Briana’s making it clear that, although things have quieted down, this feud is far from over.
Recently, Kailyn Lowry has made it clear that she has no interest in being in the same room as any of her Teen Mom co-stars on this upcoming reunion.
“They have asked me if I will sit on the couch with everybody,” Kailyn spilled to all of her listeners as well as her co-host Lindsie Chrisley. “And I did say no.” She went on to say, “It doesn’t have anything to do with [Briana DeJesus] or the drama, or Jenelle, or any of that. It’s more so for personal reasons. I really just don’t want to go back to that space.”
Hm… Maybe it’s possible she has a few bad memories associated with reunions?
Kailyn went on to point out a concern of hers that many other members of the cast have shared as well. “I feel like there was drama in the past and, based on that, I don’t trust the producers and I don’t trust some of the cast members,” she said.
But just in case anyone was concerned things are going south with her other co-stars, Kailyn made it clear that she’s on good terms with at least a handful of them.
“It’s nothing against Chelsea. I know a ton of people have written in and asked if me and Chelsea are still friends.” She explained, “We’re still friends; there’s no bad blood. Jade and I are fine. People just read into it.”
Kail then cited a few of her professional exploits as further reasoning to stay away from her co-stars.
“I have a company; I run [her haircare line] Pothead… and I have the podcast, and I have things I want to do and i just do not want to put myself in a position where I would maybe act out of character again for somebody who is not affecting my day-to-day life.”
“What’s in the past is in the past,” Briana revealed in a recent interview with Radar Online. “I’m open to being mature, moving on and filming the reunion as a whole group this year. Of course, that’s not up to me, but I’m putting the ball in her court. It would be a nice change of pace to all be together and let the drama go.”
Well, apparently that’s changed, since Briana isn’t happy with Kailyn’s new limitations.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Gossip, Briana made it clear that she’s ready to duke it out with Kailyn again.
“I really don’t care about Kail whatsover,” Briana spilled. “I have moved on completely with my life and have even offered to sit down with her on a reunion couch, etc. But for some reason, she refuses. I saw she refuses to sit on a couch with anyone but Chelsea and Leah.”
“While that’s her prerogative, it’s kind of ridiculous,” Briana went on. “I would not go after her as I’ve stressed MANY TIMES our drama is in the past and it was concerning HER CHEATING EX.” She added, “Perhaps if she was able to let go of the Javi drama like I have, we finally could move on once and for all.”
She even commented on Kailyn’s decision to keep Bri off of her podcast. “Also, with the whole thing about not having me on her podcast … doesn’t anyone see the irony in this?” She went on:
“She goes on HER PODCAST to discuss me — which she clearly knows is a topic that will drive ratings, much like she did to Jenelle — and then she doesn’t even want to allow me on to talk things out with her/offer my side of things? Not that I’d go on her podcast anyway, as I have better ways to spend my time, but … Like I said, the drama I have with her is far behind me and I don’t really care about her at all, but I do find it slightly obnoxious that she needs to discuss me/continue to try to poke at me.”
