Well, another Teen Mom 2 reunion weekend is in the books.
And just like in years past, it seems that the event was pretty much a nightmare for everyone involved.
For starters, the taping took place on the heels of news that Jenelle Evans, had flown to New York for a meeting with MTV execs, a move that was taken by many as a sign that Evans will soon be returning to the show on a full-time basis.
That development might partially explain why Kailyn Lowry had such a horrendous time at the reunion.
But the Jenelle news was just one of many factors that led Lowry to swear off reunions for good, and the more we find out about this year's event, the more it sounds like the most bonkers taping to date.
Take a look at what Kail had to say on Twitter:
We think it's safe to say that Kailyn Lowry didn't have a good time at this year's Teen Mom 2 reunion. In fact, she took to Twitter and promised fans that this was the last reunion she'll ever attend!
Kail has long been critical of the reunion shows, but this time it seems she's really had it -- and we believe her when she says she won't be participating in next year's taping.
Just Say No
“Say no to things that are not good for your mental health. I.e. teen mom reunions,” Kail began her post-show rant on Twitter.
“Every year I say I’m not going,” she continued. “Every year I give in. This time I’ve reflected, accepted responsibility & wanted to do better. This year, I get dragged into bulls--t that has NOTHING to do with me.”
She Went There
From there, Kail bit the hand that feeds and lashed out at her bosses.
Not Holding Back
“@MTV,” she tweeted, “stop putting girls who do not like each other on the same stage. Stop putting girls in a situation where ether feel like they need to prove themselves.”
Don't Even Ask
“I promise y’all, nobody better even think about asking me to attend another reunion,” Lowry concluded, as though she hadn't already made her feelings abundantly clear.
Unfortunately for Kail, when reality stars complain about their jobs, it generally doesn't go over well on the internet.
She's Got a Point
Part of the problem, of course, is that lots of people have co-workers they don't get along with, and most of them don't take to social media to publicly vent their frustrations.
There's a feeling on social media that the Teen Moms have veered into prima donna territory recently, and lengthy diatribes like this one don't really help to dispel that notion.
What Went Down?
So what happened that got Kail all bent out of shape? Well, it seems she was telling the truth when she said the BS really had nothing to do with her.
MTV decided to spice things up this year by inviting several franchise stars who aren't directly tied to Teen Mom 2. And it sounds like the overbooking resulted in some major friction.
The Gang's All Here
“A massive fight broke out at the Teen Mom 2 reunion," an insider tells Champion Daily. "MTV invited a bunch of people in addition to the Teen Mom 2 cast this time around, including the cast of Teen Mom Young and Pregnant and Catelynn and Tyler from Teen Mom OG."
Even the Baltierras Were There!
"While Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra already revealed why they were appearing- to talk with Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer about Chelsea’s anxiety- the cast of Young and Pregnant was there to be featured on the stage with the Teen Mom 2 cast," the source continues.
Young, Pregnant, and Out of Control
It seems network execs decided to use the reunion as an opportunity to advertise the struggling Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. And the decision backfired in a big way.
All About Jade
“As fans know, new Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline started on Young and Pregnant, so MTV was reuniting her with her old cast (and likely hoping to drum up the viewership of the Young and Pregnant show by featuring them on stage with the highly-rated cast of teen mom 2)," the insider says.
The Ashley Factor
Jade has been feuding with her former co-star Ashley Jones for quite some time, and apparently, placing the two of them on stage together resulted in an explosive situation.
Jade v. Ashley
“All hell broke loose when Ashley Jones from Young and Pregnant tried to start with Jade,” says the insider.
The problem, it seems, is that Ashley felt that SHE should have been the one to take Jenelle Evans' place on Teen Mom 2.
“It seems Ashley wasn’t happy that Jade got on Teen Mom 2 and she came for her," says the witness. "A massive fight broke out and Jade and Ashley almost got into a physical altercation."
"Ashley also tried fighting with the rest of her Young and Pregnant cast," the source reveals. "Some of the girls began taking off their shoes and whatnot and security had to storm in. It was truly insane.”
“Things got so escalated that Ashley and her baby daddy Bariki Smith ended up having to be removed from the building by MTV," the informant says.
Kail to the Rescue
“Luckily for Jade, Kail Lowry was present when the fight broke out and Kail was a good friend and helped get Jade off the stage before anything too crazy/physical happened,” the source adds.
Yes, it sounds like Kail helped to de-escalate the situation, but there's still plenty of bad blood.
Making Her Case
“B--ches want to be hard at the reunion. I will beat you the f--k up. Period. You know my hotel number,” Ashley wrote on her Instagram Story after the show.
Needless to say, it's not hard to see how Kail might have been left with feeling that she's simply too old for this sh-t!
