Kail Lowry launched her new Pothead line of CBD-infused hair care products on Friday and, in a new interview with The Ashley‘s NYC reporter Amber Belus, Kail revealed that she’s hoping that her Teen Mom 2 co-stars will give the products a try– even her nemesis Jenelle Evans!
“I sent everyone in the cast a PR box, including Jenelle,” Kail told The Ashley’s reporter during her official launch party Friday night at JA Studios in New York City. “I figured maybe this will be the thing that breaks the ice and we’ll be cool again.”
Although Jenelle has yet to respond to Kail’s peace offering (although, in The Ashley’s head, Jenelle’s mom Barbara Evans is using the products and discovering a new passion for “da weeeeed!”), Kail said that the higher-ups at MTV have been supportive of the venture.
“I think [they’re supportive because] this is completely separate from MTV,” Kail said. “I wanted my brand to be ‘Pothead,’ not ‘Pothead by MTV’s ‘Teen Mom 2’s Kail Lowry.'”
The Ashley can confirm that MTV camera crews were present at the launch party, so it’s very likely we’ll see footage of it on the upcoming season of ‘Teen Mom 2.’
Also present at the event? Kail’s third baby daddy, Chris Lopez, who surprised Kail by showing up.
Her ex-husband Javi Marroquin did not attend, but Kail says he’s been supportive of her new line.
“Javi has congratulated me and wished me the best,” she said.
Kail’s relationship with her first baby daddy, Jo Rivera, is currently strained, due to Jo recently filing for child support against Kail, despite the fact that they share 50/50 custody of their son Isaac.
“Jo and I don’t talk so he hasn’t said anything about the line,” Kail said.
‘Teen Mom 2’ fans may remember that, years ago, when Jo first started dating his now-wife, Vee Torres, Kail got into nasty spat with Vee over Vee’s use of marijuana. (‘Member the infamous “gas mask” photo battle?)
Kail admitted some ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans have given her flak recently for doing a CBD line after being so hard on Vee back in 2012.
“I have been getting a lot of backlash on the fact that I had a huge falling out with Vee about [marijuana] but honestly that was when I was still young and bitter and we’ve moved past that,” Kail told The Ashley’s reporter.
