A couple of days ago, Kailyn Lowry told fans that she was cut from that night’s episode of Teen Mom 2.
Briana DeJesus claimed that Kailyn’s story was cut for time since there was a lot going on with Jade Cline‘s storyline. Briana and Jade’s stories overlapped for the episode, and we saw the dramatic aftermath of Jade’s plastic surgery.
During the episode, Jade’s mother left her daughter in pain while trying to fill her post-surgery prescriptions, and many fans wondered just exactly what her mother was doing. But instead of letting rumors swirl, Jade addressed the issue head on.
A couple days ago, Kailyn Lowry posted that she wasn’t going to be featured on that night’s episode of Teen Mom 2. She seemed surprised, as did everyone else, but Briana DeJesus tried to shed some light on the topic.
“Like the other women on the show—and Kail herself—I had absolutely no idea that Kail was going to be cut from the show tonight,” Briana told Celebuzz!. “However, as a cast member who takes pride in being my authentic self and telling my full, true story—the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between—I would be remiss to not address the situation.”
Briana then went on to explain that being a part of Teen Mom 2 is about being honest, something Kailyn hasn’t been for a while now.
“Since joining Teen Mom 2 (which, as we all know, is something Kail wasn’t exactly thrilled with from the beginning) I have worked hard to show my true authentic self while filming. Personally, I feel like if you are too good to film your real life then why would you be on a show that is supposed to be about your real life,” she said.
Briana then mentioned that Kailyn’s been trying to hide some pretty messy stuff in her life, all of which she’s refused to allow the show to film.
“Like Kail is sitting on the show legitimately filming about a wallpaper color choice when she could be filming about a domestic abuse situation with Chris that I was told she was trying to hide,” Briana told us. “This was back when Lux’s hair was cut and she was allegedly arrested after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with Chris.”
While I understand Kail- and all of us- want to be shown overcoming our struggles and that we all take pride in our names (and Kail takes pride in her brand and her podcasts) at the end of the day she shouldn’t try to cover up the real her or things that are going on in her real life. It comes off as exceptionally inauthentic and an insult to her other cast members. Think about it- if I’m being upfront about something as personal (and humiliating) as an STD from an ex, why should she get away with just talking about buying a dream house and letting her son design a bathroom when real-life problems actually are occurring in her home? It just doesn’t make any sense, and I really would like to see her showing her full, true, authentic life as I’m sure would the viewers. I’m also sure the ratings would reflect it. Regardless, she’s made her choice to show what she’s shown but I just wanted to speak up to make my point known. Whether she likes it or not, we are cast members at the end of the day and this is how I truly feel.
Later, Briana went on Instagram live to share more of her thoughts.
@teenmom.tea shared a screen recording of the live.
“I was the fifth girl added to Teen Mom 2, and some people didn’t like the fact that I was taking away TV time from others, but that’s not the point.” Briana began. “Anyways, I messed around with somebody’s ex-husband, I get it, you hate me for that. I tried to say sorry, I apologize, we’re passed that. Me and Kail squashed the beef, like there’s no hard feelings from that, we literally let it go.”
Briana then went on to say that she and Kailyn have agreed to be cool with one another, even if they aren’t necessarily friends. She said they’ve never tried to be friends but both are fine with just letting the issue rest.
“So now, here we go, fast forward to what’s going on right now. I got some information about Kail and why she wasn’t on tonight’s episode. I got true sources, true facts, from the people that work in production,” Briana continued. “I know the real story, I know what happened.”
And then Briana dropped the bomb as to why Kailyn was cut from the episode.
