For years now, the feud between Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry has been playing out in the public eye, much to the enjoyment of Teen Mom 2 viewers.
Kail and Jenelle don't get many chances to lock horns on screen, but thanks to social media and Kail's always-engrossing podcast, fans have enjoyed a front row seat to the drama.
The bad blood between these longtime rivals began boiling again this week thanks to some remarkably ignorant comments that David Eason made on Leah Messer's Instagram page.
Kailyn defended her friend; Jenelle defended her husband, and thankfully for those who appreciate the entertainment value of a good reality TV feud, it all went down on IG and Twitter:
Jenelle and Kailyn weren't always rivals, but at this point, their feud has been going on so long it's tough to remember a time when they actually seemed to like each other.
The Beef Begins
The clearest indication that Kail and Jenelle are not exactly besties came back in the summer of 2016 when Kailyn poked fun at the "mystery illness" that had supposedly ravaged Jenelle's health.
“Can’t sleep. Call all the specialists in NYC, LA, Miami, etc. #mysteryillness call The Doctors tv show….” Lowry tweeted in response to Jenelle's appearance on The Doctors.
Level-Headed, As Always
As a reply to that pretty mild joke, Jenelle decided to dox Kail by tweeting her cell phone number. From that point forward, there's been no love lost between these two.
Back and Forth Shade
In the months that followed, Kail and Jenelle both engaged in occasional subtle shade-throwing, but not surprisingly, it wasn't long before Evans took things to the next level by once again using social media to undermine Lowry's privacy.
Going Too Far
Jenelle basically went nuclear when she announced Kailyn's third pregnancy to her millions of followers before Lowry was willing to go public with the news. And it certainly wasn't the last time she went prying into Kail's personal life.
