THREE Teen Mom 2 Stars Threaten To Quit Amid Ongoing "Trash" Drama With Briana DeJesus & Jenelle Evans!

Things were certainly explosive at the last TM2 reunion, as all the behind the scenes drama that took place has been documented over MULTIPLE episodes on the MTV hit. As you surely know, Kailyn Lowry butted heads with Briana DeJesus over the latter's budding romance with Javi Marroquin. Related: Catelynn Baltierra Shuts Down Divorce Rumors You know, Kail's ex-husband. With the drama between them escalating, and costar Jenelle Evans' own respective baby daddy issues, Lowry found herself threatening to quit TM2. *GASP* No, really. For all the dramatic tea, be sure to proceed (below)... After duking it out with Briana, Kailyn locked herself in her dressing room for hours. Smh. At one point, Kailyn was joined by Chelsea Houska and Leah Messer for a conversation with executive producers. During the sit down, the moms threatened to leave the show if Briana and Jenelle's dramatics continued. The mother of three even stated: "None of this would be happening if it wasn't for (Briana) and Jenelle. What do we do about Jenelle and Briana so we don't feel like we have to walk away from the show?" Oh snap! Kailyn further expressed her disdain with the drama, as she also added: "This is trash TV. This whole thing has turned to trash. I did not sign up for this garbage." Fair enough. Nonetheless, Kailyn's camp certainly added to the backstage theatrics, as her friend Bone stormed into Briana's dressing room when she heard her talking about Lowry. This left Briana's sister Brittany seriously pissed, with Briana even threatening: "Don't be disrespectful because I'll smack the shit out of you. You're lucky my kids are here." Ultimately, Brittany chased down Bone and relayed: "Bitch, come out... Hillbilly-looking ass bitch." Oh lord. Javi tried to settle things after Briana filled him in on all of the feuding. However, when Marroquin stopped by his ex-wife's dressing room, he was met with a slammed door in his face. Briana returned with Javi to his dressing room and, while taking shots, accused Kailyn of not being loyal. After Briana informed Javi that he wants "someone that's loyal," the reality TV vet flirtatiously raised his eyebrows. Man, oh man! Related: Teen Mom Stars — Then & Now! Of course, this wasn't the only baby daddy drama, as Miz Evans faced off against ex Nathan Griffith. While, yes, Jenelle had beef with the other Teen Moms, it was her feud with Nathan that captured our attention. Things took a seriously aggressive turn when Jenelle caught Nathan's girlfriend Ashley Pens hugging her estranged mom, Barbara Evans. As the fighting began to escalate, Nathan and his mom Doris Davidson intervened. This only made things worse, as Nathan ended up screaming very hurtful things to Jenelle. He ranted: "You choose to push out your own mother because you let a guy control your life. And let him abuse my son." Doris swooped in by telling Jenelle's husband David Eason that he needed to get drug tested and advised the 26-year-old to hug her mother. To make matters worse, young Kaiser was at the center of this entire argument. Oof. During her goodbye with Kaiser, Jenelle tried to comfort her son about the explosive fight. Clearly wanting to blame someone, Jenelle sounded off on her mom, which resulted in Barbara screaming: "You fucking bitch, I have never seen you like this ever. Even on drugs, you didn't act like this." SHOTS FIRED. Thankfully, Jenelle had David in her corner, who clapped back with: "You're right, Barb, you've never seen her like this because you've never seen her stand up for herself." Yeesh. For more Teen Mom 2 drama, be sure to catch it when it airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. [Image via MTV.].....»»

Teen Mom 2 Star Kailyn Lowry Doesn"t Want Javi Marroquin To Be Involved In Her Newborn Son"s Life

Kailyn Lowry is shutting Javi Marroquin out! As we reported, on August 5, the Teen Mom 2 star gave birth to her third baby boy. While the bundle-of-joy has yet to be named, the father is Chris Lopez.

As we reported, on August 5, the Teen Mom 2 star gave birth to her third baby boy. While the bundle-of-joy has yet to be named, the father is Chris Lopez. The MTV star also has seven-year-old Isaac with ex Jo Rivera, and three-year-old Lincoln with her ex-husband. While there is no "bad blood" between her and her former hubby, she doesn't think its necessary for Javi to have a relationship with her newborn. Related: Jenelle Evans Gets Real About Almost Dying In an interview with Radar Online, the 25-year-old said: "I don't see a reason for him to be involved other than knowing and acknowledging that this is Lincoln's half sibling. That being said, on my end, there is no bad blood. But I don't think there is any reason for him to necessarily be involved." Although the two broke up in May 2016, the 24-year-old did reach out to Lowry after she gave birth. "I didn't ask how he was handling it... But he did say congratulations." While Javi previously told Radar he "won't have a relationship with the new baby," he may have to have one for legal reasons. According to attorney Brooke A. Camhi (who does not practice in Delaware): "Delaware law states that the ex-husband is presumed the father of a child if the child is born less than 300 days after the divorce." Marroquin would have to file a valid denial of paternity, while Lopez would have to file a valid acknowledgement of paternity. Even with this legal drama, Kailyn isn't concerned and believes everything will work out. "Javi is not the father... Chris is the father so I think we're all going to work together to make sure everything is taken care of and that that's established." [Image via Brian To/WENN.].....»»

Teen Mom 2"s Kailyn Lowry Thought She "Couldn"t Carry Anymore Children" Prior To Her Shocking Third Pregnancy!

With all the hype surrounding Kailyn Lowry's third pregnancy, it's crazy to learn that the Teen Mom 2 star didn't think it was physically possible for her to have another kiddo. During Monday night's episode of the MTV hit, the pregnant reality TV starlet made this admission while opening up about her unplanned third baby.

During Monday night's episode of the MTV hit, the pregnant reality TV starlet made this admission while opening up about her unplanned third baby. Related: Jenelle Evans Gets Real About Almost Dying During a chat with ex Jo Rivera, Miz Lowry noted: "I was told I couldn't carry anymore children. I was told I would have to go through fertility treatments and IVF and all kinds of things... So, even now I'm still nervous that I could have a miscarriage. Another one." Rightfully, Rivera had questions about the identity of Kailyn's latest baby daddy as they share 7-year-old Isaac together. Jo was pretty blunt when he inquired if the 25-year-old planned to be in a relationship with the father of her unborn child. After the TV personality confirmed that she and Chris Lopez are romantically involved, her ex expressed: "I'm just thinking about the kids and thinking about you. It was different with Isaac and Javi, Isaac was a baby. They don't know this person. You have to think to yourself, ‘What are they going to think? What kind of questions are they going to ask you?' " Fair point. Not to mention, the Pride Over Pity author has another son with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, named Lincoln. Both an MTV producer and Jo asked Kailyn if she and Chris had actively tried to get pregnant and her answer was certainly confusing. The soon to be mother-of-three explained: "Okay, from both of us, it was not planned and not prevented. He knew I wanted a baby and if it happened, it was fine." So that's a.... yes?? No?? Who knows. Nonetheless, Kailyn went on to reveal that she was fine filming her pregnancy in front of the cameras, but, was NOT ready to talk about her baby news with Marroquin. She continued: "I've seen all the shit Jenelle [Evans] has gone through, with having three kids with three people. It's going to get out anyway so I might as well tell my story and be transparent about it, so the truth is out there and not a bunch of rumors or assumptions. I have not told Javi yet, because I'm afraid he will try to sell [the story]. I just don't know when the right time is because he is not stable right now." Oh, the shade! Other highlights from Monday's episode include Briana DeJesus' adoption consideration, Leah Messer's daughter's birthday party, and Chelsea DeBoer's oldest struggling with having a new sibling. It's safe to say that Kailyn's third pregnancy drama is carrying TM2 right now! [Image via MTV.].....»»

Twitter Blasts Issa Rae For Race Jokes She Made In 2015 Book — But Her Fans Come In Strong With Support!

Twitter is divided by the words of Issa Rae — words, mind you, she wrote over three years ago! The comedian is getting heat for a passage in her 2015 book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, which encourages black women to shack up with Asian men because they're more intellectual than black men. Related: Azealia Banks [...] Twitter is divided by the words of Issa Rae -- words, mind you, she wrote over three years ago! The comedian is getting heat for a passage in her 2015 book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, which encourages black women to shack up with Asian men because they're more intellectual than black men. Related: Azealia Banks Blasts Kim Kardashian Over Kanye Defense While some Twitter users were quick to point out how Issa's jokes are racist, others argued that the entire publication was clearly satirical -- and even if it wasn't, there's nothing wrong with Issa stating her preference for Asian dudes! Who do U side with? See what Issa is getting heat for -- and the responses -- (below): What stands out to me is (1) how much more straight forward Issa Rae can be about Asian women (saying they are "ditching" Asian men for white) than Asian women themselves, and (2) how there is a similar, unspoken diss of black men here as less intellectual than Asian men. pic.twitter.com/9MBSGw9mhg — Five Alive (@Mont_Jiang) April 29, 2018 Also...
