Folks, Briana DeJesus is not holding back.
Like millions of single moms all over the world, she's had enough of deadbeat dads -- and she's not gonna take it anymore.
A preview for next week's episode of Teen Mom 2 shows Bri sharing a story about some obnoxious behavior from Luis Hernandez, the father of her 2-year-old daughter Stella.
Luis rematerialized after a long period of absence from Stella's life, but it seems he was more interested in reaching into Bri's pocket than in fixing his relationship with his daughter.
We spoke with Briana about this disheartening incident, and as you may have guessed, she's no great fan of Luis these days.
Take a look:
Briana DeJesus is fed up with deadbeat dads. And now, she's calling out Luis Hernandez for his failure to be a father to his young daughter.
Luis doesn't make many appearances on Teen Mom 2 for the simple reason that he doesn't make many appearances in his daughter's life.
The Deadbeat Returns
And he doesn't appear in the trailer for next week's Teen Mom 2, either -- but Stella's dad still manages to make his presence felt in a big way.
An Unexpected Guest
The trouble began when Luis paid a surprise visit to Bri and Stella, an incident that Brian recalls in conversation with her sister, Brittany.
Hello and Goodbye
“I guess he came to kind of say ‘bye’ to her because he was going back into trucking,” Bri tells her sister.
Telling It Like It Is
Brittany is no fan of Luis and she makes that fact abundantly clear in her comments.
Not Mincing Words
“He never came to say ‘hello’ so why the f--- is he coming to say ‘goodbye’?” Brit shoots back.
What a Snake
The next day at her beauty salon, Bri reveals the reason behind Luis' unexpected visit -- and it ain't pretty.
Briana reads the following text to her sister and a friend: “Good morning. So as much as I hate to do this, I wanted to see if I can ask you for a huge favor."
Just a Loan
“See if I can borrow some cash from you, I’ll pay you back with interest if I have to and I need to get a few things and leave some things paid before I leave tomorrow night. I hate to ask but I really have no choice,” Luis continues.
A Chunk of Change For a Chump
When Bri texted Luis back asking how much he wants, he replied, “$1500.”
Just a Few Things ... Like a TRUCK!
“I need to get a few things for work, for example I need to get a truck, a GPS, and then I need to get meds refilled,” Hernandez texted.
On the Brit List
Needless to say, Brittany was not thrilled by this revelation.
“You never came around to help this entire time you were here. You don’t need to help financially. You can help physically or emotionally in a sense, you know?” her sister says, addressing Hernandez.
Just the Facts
“You could simply tell him, ‘I just bought a house for your daughter to live a happy, stable life’,” Brittany suggests.
At the time Briana was at a loss for words. But when she spoke to The Hollywood Gossip this week, she had plenty to say about her broke-ass ex.
The Bad News
Bri says she DID give Luis the money, but don't worry -- she's not letting him off easy.
Tough But Fair
"For a long time, I feel like I’ve practically been a single mom," she told us.
A Halfway Decent Baby Daddy ...
"While Devoin is obviously involved in Nova’s life, as you’ve seen play out this season, I have to be very careful with how much I let him do and how much I trust him," DeJesus said of her eldest daughter's father.
... Who Still Needs Work
"While I was starting to trust him more, as you saw in the first episode this year, my trust was violated, and that’s going to take a while to earn back," Briana told us.
The Real Problem
"Luis is clearly a bigger issue. Legitimately, I look at this footage and am like - damn, what is wrong with this man?" DeJesus said. "You have a kid with someone and you more or less ignore the child the majority of the time that they’re alive. You do very little other than show up a handful of times, leaving me with the bulk of the responsibility.
"Like, fine, whatever. But then you come over under the guise that you wanna say goodbye to your daughter, Stella, before you leave for a job and that’s all just a cover to try to ask me for money? And $1,500 at that?" Bri added.
"Luis is lucky I’m a nice person and decided to give him the money, because truly, I feel like he is a pathetic excuse for a man and a father," DeJesus continued.
"He has not once helped me out with Stella financially or emotionally but has the balls to come over pretending he cares about his kid just in order to get some money out of me?" Briana told THG.
Focusing On What Matters
Bringing the conversation back around to Stella, Briana had this to say: "As far as I’m concerned, moving forward, Luis should stay out of Stella’s life. She doesn’t need a father figure like that in her life. What life lessons could he teach her? How to fake being a parent in order to swindle some chump change?"
One Gross Dude
"Like, seriously. How gross is he?" DeJesus hilariously added. "I have worked every damn day to support my kids and be the best Mom I can be - and I don’t just mean on Teen Mom, also with my other full time job I have - and I will never stop being there for my children."
The Mic Drop
"As far as Luis, though... just stop pretending. You’re a fraud just looking for a check. And that’s all I’ve got to say," Briana concluded.
Making Her Voice Heard
Something tells us Luis will think twice before he goes and asks for another loan from Briana!
