Duking It Out!
The Teen Mom cast members have more than their fair share of drama just during their day-to-day lives. They also have notorious tempers. So when they interact, you just know things are going to go down.
Recently, Jenelle Evans has been making headlines left and right — especially now that she’s threatened to quit the show thanks to “manipulative edits.”
Apparently, her feud with the network has put her in a combative mood all around. The mother-of-three has been duking it out with not one, but two of her co-stars: Kailyn Lowry and Farrah Abraham. Now it’s becoming very clear that when you get three of the most volatile girls in the cast together, it’s going to get very ugly, very fast.
Jenelle proved that when she called Kailyn a b***h, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Jenelle vs. Kailyn
The episode of Teen Mom “Love You, Mean It” has made serious waves throughout the Teen Mom-verse. Even though it aired weeks ago, the controversial hour of TV is causing more and more fights and drama each day.
In the now-notorious episode, Jenelle Evans vented to producers via text that she and David had gotten into a huge fight… but when the network came by the next day, David flat out denied that a fight had ever happened. In fact, he straight up told the producers, “You’re lying.”
Later in the episode, Jenelle and David tried to snag an adorable save-the-date shot… while ignoring Kaiser crying right next to them. The scene further painted David in a bad light by showing him yelling at step-son Kaiser and pulling him by the arm. To make matters worse, the sequence also showed both of parents ignoring Kaiser as he cried out “Feed me!” to his distracted parents. (A more detailed recap of the episode, can be found here — don’t worry; we’ll still be here when you get back!)
Jenelle took to Instagram after the episode aired to let fans know that she was considering quitting. “I have decided after this season I’m probably calling it quits for filming this show,” she wrote. “It’s not healthy for us anymore, just harming us mentally. They treat all of us as if we are in a freak show and in cages. WE aren’t human beings to @mtv what-so-ever.”
That’s not all that went down over social media after the episode. Close on the heels of the episode, MTV posted a seriously controversial meme. It showed the shot of Kaiser screaming “Feed me,” with a caption that read “Literally me.” The network threw in a pizza emoji for good measure.
MTV later deleted the tweet because many people found it seriously offensive, including Kailyn Lowry. She commented on the tweet, writing, “There’s nothing funny about this.” That’s when Jenelle took serious offense.
“Jenelle texted Kail and told her she shouldn’t be making ‘b***h a** comments’ about her life unless she knows the full story,” an insider close to Kailyn told Radar Online. “She complained about coming under fire on social media for not feeding her son.”
The girls have a reunion coming up, and everyone is expecting things to get really ugly between these two. However, according to the insider, Jenelle doesn’t want Kailyn to even speak to her. “She told Kail that she hasn’t filmed and doesn’t plan on it because of girls like her on the show,” the insider told Radar.
Kailyn tried to stop the drama by telling Jenelle to have a nice day, and Jenelle said, “You too you b***h,” according to the insider.
No one understands how it feels to have your life edited like Jenelle’s costars do, and Kailyn sounded off to TMZ about Jenelle’s reaction. “I mean, we all have a storyline that they have to follow,” she said. “It’s up to us to change it if we want to better our image.”
She also allegedly pointed out that Jenelle knew what she was getting into when she signed up for the show. “At the end of the day, that’s what we signed up for, and it’s in our contract that they’re allowed to do that.”
Then she made it clear how she feels about Jenelle: “I’m not saying Jenelle’s being overdramatic. I’m just saying Jenelle’s being Jenelle. She texted me saying to keep her name out of my mouth, so we’ll just leave it there.”
When asked if they were friends, Kailyn responded, point blank: “Nope.”
Of course, Kailyn wasn’t the only person with opinions about Jenelle’s reaction. Farrah Abraham also had something to say.
Jenelle vs… Farrah?!
Farrah said that she hopes Jenelle is doing well, but when she heard that Jenelle was thinking of quitting the show, she made it clear where she stood. “Look, here’s the thing: I don’t edit the show; none of [my co-stars] do. So I don’t really think they should be talking about the edit. That’s kind of a dead story,” Farrah said. “Same old topics.”
The interviewer asked if Farrah thought it was fair, or if they had all signed up to be edited. Farrah said, “I mean, I signed up to only talent; that’s my paygrade, and I don’t like to edit. So I’ll leave it to them, then.”
Farrah also came up with a possible solution for Jenelle: “Maybe she should apply to edit the show,” she joked. “That would help.”
At the end of the day, it seems like Farrah thinks Jenelle should stick to what she signed up for. “At the end of the day, it is what it is. You’re the talent, not an editor.”
If Farrah could send any message to Jenelle, Farrah says it would be: “Who cares?”
For Jenelle’s part, she also opened up to TMZ about how she was feeling. “My kids are seeing me cry from comments online, or whatever, and they’re upset ‘cause I’m upset, then [David]’s upset, so my whole family is affected, and not in a good way,” she said.
She implied that if MTV was willing to meet her halfway, she would reconsider. “Unless they try to work with me and change the editing around to where it’s portrayed the right way — and I understand we have fights. That’s fine, you can show the fights — but don’t try to create drama when there wasn’t one.”
