Briana DeJesus Reveals She’s No Longer Friends with Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ Co-Star Jenelle Evans

Cue Jenelle posting Briana’s phone number on Twitter in 3…2…1…

It looks like the friendship of Jenelle Evans and Briana DeJesus is over!

Briana revealed that she is no longer galpals with her former Teen Mom 2 co-star, despite having stood by Jenelle as she recently battled to regain custody of her children. When a fan asked Briana if she and Jenelle still chat, Briana revealed that, much like Jenelle’s career on MTV, the friendship has gone down in flames.

“I wonder if they still talk?” one person asked on Twitter in a thread about Briana and Jenelle.

“No we don’t,” Briana responded. “She’s upset with me. A blogger asked me a question (if Mtv will bring Jenelle back) and I said not as of now and she’s upset I said that.”

Another Jenelle friendship bites the dust…

The “breakup” is surprising, considering Briana has been very vocal about her support of her (then friend) Jenelle. When Jenelle was fired from ‘Teen Mom 2’ back in May, Briana was in Jenelle’s corner, stating that she felt bad for her friend.

“I am sad for her,” Briana said at the time. “I wish there was some kind of compromise for all of this. She worked her ass off for so long to just be thrown to the wolves,” Briana said in an interview. “I hope she gets everything she ever wanted and I just want her to flourish!”

Describe this former friendship in four words or less…

When Jenelle temporarily lost custody of her kids in June, Bri was there, voicing her support for her pal and stating that she felt Jenelle’s kids belonged back with Jenelle.

“While lots of people are judging, they need to take a step back and remember that they’ve never lived her life,” Briana told Radar Online at the time. “They don’t know the exact ins and outs of what she’s dealing with just because of what they think they’ve seen on TV. Everyone’s situation is different, but I really hope this all works out, especially for the kids’ sake.”

In July, Briana admitted that it had been a while since she had spoken to Jenelle, due to how busy Jenelle was going to court and trying to get her kids back and whatnot.

Surprisingly, Jenelle (and her ever-present and usually vocal husband David Eason) have yet to respond to Briana’s statement about their friendship ending. 

“Ya might want ta get ya-self a bulletproof vest just in case, Briana!”

While Briana is over her friendship with Jenelle, she recently revealed that she is open to making up with her other ‘Teen Mom 2’ co-star Kail Lowry. Briana— who infamously brawled with Kail on-stage during a ‘Teen Mom 2’ Reunion show last year— said she is ready to put their feud in the past. 

“I’m open to being mature, moving on and filming the Reunion as a whole group this year,” she said. “Of course, that’s not up to me, but I’m putting the ball in her court. It would be a nice change of pace to all be together and let the drama go.” 

UPDATE! Briana spoke with Radar Online about the incident that caused her friendship with Jenelle to end.

“Jenelle got mad at me because I was asked in an interview if I thought she’d come back to the show, and I said at this point I didn’t think that would happen,” Briana told the site, later adding, “Based on what I’ve been told I still stand by that she would not be back.”

Bri also revealed that the friendship ended via text.

“She sent me a message telling me she can’t trust me,” Briana said. “She told me that I’m not going to be invited to her makeup line launch because of what I said. I said okay to that, because what can I do? I said the truth and I guess that offended her.”

It appears Briana is now realizing why Jenelle’s other ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast mates (as well as ‘OG’ stars Cheyenne Floyd and Amber Portwood) are no longer cool with Jenelle.

“The irony is I’m the only one on the cast who had her back and was her friend and filmed with her when no one else would. But if she wants to act like that, so be it,” Briana said. “I have no issues with Jenelle personally, but she’s chosen to have an issue with me and that’s her prerogative. I wish her the best.”

“In.The.Face Jenelle!”

    1. @Andrea Wilkie, do you know why @The Ashley is still talking about Jenelle? She has been FIRED from TM2!!! She is IRRELEVANT!!!!

      1. No idea ! She should just be totally ignored, it’s like adding fuel to a fire. The more media attention she gets the more she thrives on it.
        She carries on saying she’s sick of people talking about her….but then she’ll go and do something to get her put in the spotlight again. I try not to click on anything in relation to her now because I read that if you click on her articles , they’re apparently called clickable and she profits off them.
        I’m not funding her! Get her lazy ass husband out to earn for his family for a change.
        I agree with you though, She was sacked (after plenty of warnings) MTV need to stop pandering to her.

          1. Very true! I actually had a break from social media for awhile ( I only go on the Ashley Radar on line or Youtube) I don’t do Facebook or Twitter or anything)
            Because I was sick to death of hearing about Jenelle and I was absolutely disgusted when that judge handed the kids back. I needed a holiday from the stress of it all lol

          2. Same here. But on a positive note, I think Ensley got permanently removed and placed with Barb (which, to me isn’t much better)!!

          3. It leaves me shaking my head in disbelief, I watched some earlier episodes when Jace was just a toddler and the yelling and screaming going on between Barb and Jenelle gave me a headache!
            The sad thing is that Jace and also Kaiser don’t bat an eyelid ….. like it’s all completely natural…..and I find that really sad!

          4. True!!! When my daddy just raised his voice I flinched!!! But my father is also a raging alcoholic so I never what would happen next (more yelling or a slap across the face). I don’t know, maybe it’s male/female difference.

  1. Jenelle only allows people into her life who follow a carefully written script that was written by Jenelle and David. If anyone deviates from the “our life is so perfect!” script, they are cut off. Look at Barbara, Tori, and the long list of others Jenelle no longer speaks to. She can’t stand it that the MTV gravy train has derailed, and now she and her Baba Yaga husband are going to be forced into actual employment. Eventually, she will have to reach out to somebody, but it will be a a matter of who will let HER back into their lives.

  2. Jenelle is only open to a reunion with the cast because she doesn’t want a real job and this would be the only way to get back on the show. She can’t get back on unless Kail(esp) backs the decision.
    As far as J & B and their friendship, I think Bri was true to the friendship but I think J & D jumped on it because Bri was the only person in the show that would film with her.

    1. She was apparently begging MTV to let her film with Brianna but I think by that stage things had gone to far.
      She had NO hope of getting her foot back in the door so of course Brianna then served no purpose to her.
      So of course Jenelle being Jenelle turned it into a big drama trying to get attention.

  3. Even longtime viewers like myself could have easily told Briana that her sudden “girlfriends for an eternity” love connection with Jenelle – would soon be over.

    Jenelle simply used Briana to be in her corner when the other cast members couldn’t stand her, and to film with her when even the MTV producers themselves were sick to death of her. Being the “new kid” on the TM2 block who seemed desperate to make friends, Briana gladly took the bait. But little did she realize that historically when Jenelle has a man in her life, THAT MAN takes precedence over everything and everybody else. Even her own kids, as we’ve all seen. In short, Jenelle has very little time to focus on being a bff with anyone if it doesn’t suit her own personal agenda at the time.


    End of story.

    So feel free to just chalk this one up as a learning experience, Bri.

    1. Hannah, I’m sorry about your dad. That must have been horrible. NO child should have to grow up in an environment like that .

  4. Jenelle Evans Eason only friended Brianna because she was on the outs with Kail due to Brianna being with jigaloo Javi. Brianna, here’s a word of advise, Stay Far Far away from this women who lies for and supports her abusive husband David Eason.

  5. What Briana said wasn’t even bad…Jenelle is so petty, and cannot seem to keep a friend for more than a year, so I dunno what Briana thought was going to happen when she decided to be “friends” with Jenelle…Just like I dunno what she thought was gonna happen when she decided to date Javi. Now she’s the outcast of the entire franchise. She makes some awful judgement calls.

    Kinda feel bad for her (but I really don’t), and now I see why she wants that “girls trip”, because being the odd one out is never fun, but then again she brought all this on herself.

      1. Right! I don’t see any of the other girls from either show doing anything more than tolerating Briana for the sake of filming reunions. I’ve noticed with their click mentality, that if you mess with 1 of the originals, you mess with all of them, and unfortunately for Briana, she picked on the Regina George of the pack, Kail…Notice how Cheyenne has fit in, and that’s because she stayed in her lane her 1st season, Briana came in and decided to wild out to solidify her spot on the show…But now all of Briana’s antics that got her on the show, have finally come back to bite her in that lopsided ass…Maybe Jade will be her friend, but only because Briana hasn’t done anything to Jade…Yet…

  6. I mean, briana isnt wrong regarding answering the fan question. She said something completely neutral, non offensive, and totally accurate regarding jenelles lack of employment (lol). And jenelle got mad, why??? She twists things a very strange way to play the victim. Reminds me of several situations where barbara didnt allow Jace at jenelles for valid reasons (constant fighting, getting arrested, threatening fellow drivers with firearms..ya know, normal mom stuff), and jenelle literally twisted it into her classic- “MY MOMS TRYING TO KEEP JACE FROM ME!” stupid nonsense. She is so childish and delusional. All of those poor kids are going to learn life skills from her and sadly (but hopefully not) echo her nasty attitude.

    1. I don’t know why but Barb seems to be as much of a whack job as Jenelle is.

      She gets angry at Jenelle for her language around the kids, but she’s just as bad. If I had called someone a piece of shit (like she did about his mom and Lurch, even though he was right) around my mom, grandma or anyone else, I would be picking myself up in the yard somewhere. I think Barb drills HER opinions about Jenelle and Lurch into his head (and vice versa)!

  7. They were only “friends” in the first place because Jenelle was the outcast and Bri was the extra, new girl and no one wanted her on the show.

    1. Covering up the abuse in her home, working on her list of reasons why David’s a great guy, doctor shopping, fighting 200 social media fights at the same time, calling 911, making other people look bad,…

  8. Briana never even said anything bad about her. It’s common sense that Jenelle is not going to be back on teen mom unless she dumps David. It’s not like Briana went off on her. Jenelle is over reacting

  9. Was just catching up with Og and kind of happy that Amber is so supportive of Leah. panic attacks are no joke and amber recognizes that getting her help now is a good thing. Gary is already calling the kid crazy.

        1. I know. Being in agreement with ANYTHING good that the people this site discusses doesn’t go over too well, the way ALOT of these people think is “once bad=always bad”. But I learned to not really give a damn about what others think about what I say. I say what want and if someone doesn’t like it, WHO GIVES A SHIT!!!!!

    1. I was honestly thinking the same thing, plus he seems to want to isolate her and be her only friend/family member in the world. He’s so sick.

  10. Oh no. She’s not gonna be invited to Jenelle’s never happening makeup line launch party. Cry me a river! And even if it DOES happen, the only people there will be the other trash Z-list reality stars that her ‘manager’ manages, like Ashley Smith from 90DF.

  11. Brianna’s ratchet sister is probably the main reason Kail wants nothing to do with that family. Once you put your hands on someone, game over. They are all immature and need to learn how to communicate.

  12. I think Jenelle is just jealous because Briana is still on the show and is raking in the big bucks and she isn’t!!!! But since Briana has also SUPPOSEDLY buried the hatchet with Kail and has “put the ball in her court” maybe this season will be relatively drama-free!!!! But I doubt it since we still have Kail and her baby daddies drama and Briana and her baby daddies drama. The only decent cast members left Chelsea and Leah!!!!

  13. Soooooo….
    She’s mad at Briana for giving an honest answer??

    Continue on burning them bridges, Chinnelle👌🏽👌🏽

  14. It doesn’t surprise me that Dumbnelle acted that way to Briana. As far as Briana and Kail reconcilling, it could possibly happen if Briana leaves her ratchet sister out of it.
