In some respects, Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans have quite a lot in common.
They’re both moms to three young children; they both star on the same reality show; and they both live lives that are jam-packed with non-stop drama, much of it stemming from conflicts with the people with whom they share custody.
Despite all of that, however, Kail and Jenelle have very different worldviews and they rarely see eye-to-eye.
The ladies live in different states, but they often settle their differences on social media, and this week, the ladies reached a new level of mutual scorn.
Check out the gallery below for a rundown of the latest trash-talk between these longtime rivals.
Believe it or not, there was a time when Kail and Jenelle actually got along. In fact, Lowry once gave Evans a ride home from jail after one of her many arrests.
Kail Speaks Out
Of that incident, Kailyn tells The Hollywood Gossip exclusively, “I called outta work and picked her up from New Jersey when she was strung out on drugs. I took her to the airport. MTV knew about this and didn’t film it.”
Times Have Changed
But that was several years ago. These days, if Kailyn and Jenelle interact at all, it’s to exchange insults on social media.
Jenelle is an easy target at the moment thanks to her latest round of self-inflicted troubles. But to be fair, the negligent and allegedly abusive mom is deserving of pretty much all the criticism she receives.
Not surprisingly, Jenelle doesn’t see it that way. In fact, she’s gone on the offensive as of late, attacking anyone who dares to breathe a word about her very public struggles.
Speaking the Truth
Despite the bitter attacks Jenelle has been launching on social media, Kail has not shied away from discussing the controversy surrounding her co-star on recent episodes of her popular Coffee Convos podcast.
The Battle Continues
This has led to some bitter exchanges between Kail and Jenelle on Twitter, and naturally, fans are loving every second of it …
Jenelle Goes Off
“Soooo it’s OK to constantly talk about me on their podcast tho? Don’t you have any other topics than me?!” Evans tweeted on Monday.
A Solid Point
When a fan pointed out that Jenelle should probably just stop listening to Kailyn’s podcast if it bothers her so much, Evans fired another shot.
“Nah, articles are always written talking s–t about me. Don’t blame her though… she’s just always trying to remain relevant,” Jenelle tweeted.
Jenelle is not exactly a fan favorite these days, and many on social media were quick to point out her obvious hypocrisy.
“Says the one who keeps bring her up on Twitter,” one fan tweeted. “Girl come on. If you aren’t listening then you shouldn’t speak on it,” remarked another.
Kail Sounds Off
Apparently, Jenelle recently blocked Kail on Twitter, but that didn’t stop Lowry from responding to Ms. Evans’ latest smack.
Smash That Unblock Button
“Jenelle, unblock me and say it to me,” Kail tweeted on Monday. “We only talk about the crazy shit you do that makes headlines. You’re not actually interesting.”
Up to the Kiki Challenge
From there, Kail referenced a bizarre video in which Jenelle accepted the “Kiki Challenge,” which in her mind apparently meant randomly pulling the car over to twerk in front of her kids.
Clearly, Kail found the video as unintentionally funny as the rest of us. Jenelle might have her on block, but we’re sure word of this burn got around.
Back At It
Before this week, Kail and Jenelle had mostly been staying out of one another’s business. And it looks as though we played a small role in re-igniting their feud.
Briana Gets Involved
When Briana DeJesus tweeted a link to an article from The Hollywood Gossip about Kail sleeping with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, Jenelle decided to take the opportunity to fire off some shots.
Jenelle Is Angry … As Usual
“Soooo try to make some other chick jealous by giving your body away again to your ex? Ew. #EnoughSaid #NoMorals #NoStandards #JustAThought,” Evans wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
She Called It
From the very start, Kail seemed to predict that this situation would get ugly … and of course, she was right.
She Speaks the Truth
True to her claim, Kail only discusses the events of Jenelle’s life that have already been made public.
Perhaps to underscore that fact, yesterday, she tweeted a link to an article about Jenelle’s most ridiculous public meltdowns.
Playing By the Rules
That seems to be in keeping with an unspoken agreement among the ladies of the Teen Mom franchise: Unless you’re directly involved, don’t go spilling any tea to the media,
Jenelle, of course, refuses to stick to those very reasonable guidelines, often sharing information that her co-stars would prefer to keep private.
And She Wonders Why No One Likes Her …
For example, when Kail was pregnant with her third child and had yet to make an announcement, Jenelle took it upon herself to tell the whole world. What a gal …
It remains to be seen what the future holds for these friends-turned-rivals, but you can be certain they won’t be burying the hatchet anytime soon.
UPDATE: The Clapback
“While you’re over here podcasting away, tweeting pure bullshit about me, or posting #FakeNews.. I’ll be over here homeschooling my stepdaughter and minding my business,” Jenelle tweeted today in an obvious jab at Jenelle.
Kail was quick to respond with this mic drop tweet. We’re ready to call the fight in Ms. Lowry’s favor.
