Once upon a time, the Teen Mom reunions were simple, relatively tame things: all of the cast members came to the set, chatted about their trials and tribulations with Dr. Drew, packed their things up and went home.
Then, they got famous enough to be divas.
Now, you’d be hard-pressed to find more than a few cast members who have agreed to film with all of their co-stars; most of them have at least one person they wouldn’t be caught dead on the set with. And as it turns out, Jade Cline is joining that number with her recent refusal to film with her Teen Mom castmate.
It’s not uncommon for the Teen Mom cast members to have ongoing feuds with each other, and Young and Pregnant transfer Jade Cline caught on to the trend pretty quickly. Now, she’s straight up refusing to film with her co-star Ashley Jones.
“Jade feels that Ashley has shaded her multiple times, especially right after it was announced that Jade had been picked for ‘Teen Mom 2,’” a source told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. “She said that Ashley was telling people on social media that Jade only got the ‘Teen Mom 2’ job because Ashley turned the producers down.”
Jade was reportedly also mad that Ashley was “shading” her when news came out that Jade and her ex Sean Austin were being sued for falling behind on their $900 monthly rent they owed on their Indiana home.
When the news came out, Ashley tweeted, “Man if my rent was 900 dollars I’d be stacking to bad all you gone get in the bay is a bedroom in someone’s house where you can’t even use the living room.”
Even though it seems like a pretty targeted quote, Ashley has insisted that it’s not about Jade.
“First of all what the f**k are you talking about,” Ashley said in response to accusations of drama-starting. “We all know by now if I wanted to say a name I would. I’m simply referring to the fact that I have to pay to be alive and no one asked me if I could afford it before bringing me into the universe. Lighten up hoe…”
Like most Teen Mom feuds, the origins remain murky. But the one thing that is crystal clear is how much difficulty this will present to the producers who surely just want the cast members to get along for once.
“They are all trying to figure out how to make the segment happen without Jade and Ashley getting into a fight onstage,” The Ashley’s source spilled.
The source added that “plans are in place to keep all of the ‘Teen Mom 2’ girls separated” so that we don’t get a repeat of some of the most notorious physical and verbal fights in reality TV history.
“They have asked me if I will sit on the couch with everybody and I did say no,” Kailyn spilled on her podcast Coffee Convos. “It doesn’t have anything to do with Briana or the drama, or Jenelle [Evans], or any of that. It’s more so for personal reasons. I really just don’t want to go back to that space. 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.”
