Briana DeJesus and Kailyn Lowry have been at each other's throats for quite some time, but their feud may have peaked on last night's episode of Teen Mom 2.
No, they didn't throw down in some sort of ultra-satisfying physical altercation.
Instead, they upped the ante in very modern fashion -- from different parts of the country, using podcasts and tweets as their weapons.
It all started when Javi Marroquin appeared on Kailyn's podcast shortly after his breakup with Briana.
Briana didn't like what she heard, and she made her feelings known as only she can.
Here's a brief rundown of how it all played out ...
Remember when Briana and Kail were actually friendly toward one another? Ha! That didn't last long. These days, the co-stars have nothing but ill will for one another, and Javi Marroquin is often at the center of their conflict.
On last night's episode of TM2, we finally got to see how and why Javi and Briana called it quits.
The Problem With Javi
Javi, as we know, is a guy who takes an all or nothing approach to relationships. He visited Briana in Orlando and pressured her to move to Delaware and essentially start a life with him.
Not Having It
Briana, of course, had no interest in such an arrangement. She complained about seeing a side of Javi that she'd never seen before and essentially kicked him to the curb.
Javi, of course, made it sound as though he was the one who ended things, but that's a conversation for another time.
Javi didn't like the fact that Bri was planning to undergo additional plastic surgeries, and she didn't like that he was so critical. “I felt controlled,” Briana told producers. “I felt like he was trying to manipulate me in a situation I didn’t want to be in.” Javi chose a different venue to tell his side of the story .,..
A Serious Coffee Convo
Kail was the first person Javi told after he and Briana broke up. He later went on her podcast to discuss the matter.
Javi Spills the Tea ... Sort Of
At first, Javi seemed open to talking about his latest relationship (which was, after all, pretty much the point of his sitting down with Kail), but later, he clammed up ...
“My new relationship should not be mixed with a past relationship,” Javi said. “I’m trying to learn from my mistakes.” Of course, he and Kail continued to talk about his breakup anyway.
The Wrath of DeJesus
Briana was ... not exactly thrilled by the content of Kail's latest podcast, and she quickly took to Twitter to make her feelings known.
“I am not the common denominator as to why yall fail to co parent so dont ever use my name in that matter again," Briana tweeted. "And you are right, ill never say sorry cause I am not the one who started all this mess … You use ur kids as pawns and that is not my fault but ur own selfish reasoning’s.”
Letting Javi Have It
“Dont say u dont know what the future holds to someone but in my msgs saying u wanna marry me,” she wrote to Javi. “I don’t do that fake s—t … u say its about the kids but in reality u only care bout ur feelings and not anyone elses … including ur kids.”
Not Holding Back
“I look like the crazy one now but just remember I tried to keep it off social media … u bitches so quick to call lawyers when they cant handle the heat that they turned on … I am not the reason as to why people cant get along," she continued.
Briana described Kail as a "psycho bitch" on Twitter and bragged to a friend about calling her a "fat bitch."
Briana went on the offensive AGAIN during last night's episode, taking to Twitter to describe Kailyn as "a crazy ex wife and baby mama." It seems that what set her off was a comment that Kail made about the nature of her breakup with Javi.
A Fair Assessment
"Briana is getting surgery again. He doesn't want that. He wants kids. She doesn't want kids right now," Kailyn stated. "Neither one of them are going to leave their families. Neither one of them are going to move for the other one. I'm not surprised in the slightest."
"People have this crazy perception of me, that I'm this insane ex-wife and bitter baby mama, but really, I just know Javi so f--king well that I knew this was never going to work out," she continued.
Seems like a perfectly sensible take on the situation, but we can see how it would be irritating hearing someone say they knew from the start your relationship would be a bust. Of course, in the end, it didn't matter what Kail or Briana thought ...
Baby Mama #2
Because it wasn't long after he parted ways with Briana (and briefly reconciled with Kail) that Javi impregnated Lauren Comeau. The guy might want stability ... but he was a very strange way of seeking it out.
