For as long as Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus have been on Teen Mom 2 together, they’ve been feuding. What started as petty squabbled evolved into full-blown fighting, largely because Briana dated Kailyn’s ex-husband and second baby daddy Javi Marroquin.
Even though Braina’s relationship with Javi is long gone, the tension between her and Kailyn is apparently here to stay. And apparently things are so bad that Kailyn refuses to even be in the same room as her co-stars. What will this mean for the upcoming reunion special?
As is tradition at the end of every season of Teen Mom, the girls are heading to New York City to film the reunion for season 9B of the show. Unfortunately for any fans that may be looking forward to a full-on feud between Briana and Kailyn, it looks like Kailyn is taking the possibility of that fully off of the table. Kailyn spilled all of the tea on the last episode of her podcast, Coffee Convos.
“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 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.”
Unlike Kailyn, Briana has made it clear that she’s willing to film with Kailyn for the reunion.
“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.”
She added that even though it would be “awkward as hell,” she’s ready to end her feud with Kailyn.
Maybe one day down the line, the two could even work together on Kaiyn’s podcast – though that’s not in the immediate future, according to Kail.
“I’ve been asked to have Briana on the podcast,” Kailyn revealed on Coffee Convos. “One of the producers had suggested maybe having her on the podcast. But, again, I just don’t think it fits well with what we’re trying to do.”
Compared to some of the more explosive reunions we’ve seen on the show, it seems that Kailyn is trying to keep things much more chill — but only time will tell.
