The Teen Mom 2 Season 10B Reunion is currently filming in New York City, with cast members flying in, flying out and Skyping in– creating a huge organizational mess behind the scenes!
Amidst the chaos, though, the girls of ‘Teen Mom 2’ have been filming their segments, and were joined by Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Kayla Sessler, who was there to introduce the two new girls who will be appearing on the upcoming third season with her! (As The Ashley told you recently, 16 and Pregnant Season 6 star Madisen Beith is one of the girls, but the second girl is new to the franchise and has a crazy backstory! More on that later…)
Anyway, The Ashley is here to give you the behind-the-scenes scoop on what’s been happening in NYC during the Reunion shoot!
This is the first in-person Reunion being filmed since the COVID-19 pandemic started, so things “were a mess,” one source tells The Ashley.
“They did not do the scheduling well, so no one really knew what the hell was going on, even on the day they were supposed to film,” an on-set source tells The Ashley. “Things kept changing and everyone is getting frustrated.”
Leah Messer didn’t arrive in NYC until around 2 a.m. Thursday. One girl, however, didn’t make it to the Reunion at all.
“Ashley [Jones] didn’t attend,” the on-set source tells The Ashley. “She filmed in California and was Skyped in basically.”

(The Ashley is working to find out the story behind why Ashley didn’t go to NYC; however, her fiancé Bar Smith was arrested a few days ago, so it’s possible it had something to do with that. The Ashley will update this when she gets more info on that.)
“Leah was pissed that Ashley didn’t do in-person because [Leah] went through hell to get to the Reunion and didn’t think it was fair Ashley was allowed to film from home,” a second source tells The Ashley. “Leah wasn’t mad at Ashley; she was mad production insisted she still fly out all the way out there.”
While Ashley was not in attendance, another girl from the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise was in NYC: Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Kayla Sessler. Kayla posted on Instagram that she was hanging out with Jade Cline, causing fans to wonder if Kayla just happened to be in New York at the same time as the ‘Teen Mom 2’ girls.
“It was no coincidence,” the source tells The Ashley. “Kayla was there to film a few segments for the ‘Teen Mom 2’ Reunion. The first was a segment she did with Ashley to talk about their old beef and the current state of their relationship.”

As The Ashley reported back in October 2019, Ashley got into a huge argument with Kayla and several of the other ‘Y&P’ girls while on-stage filming their Reunion show. Since then, though, the girls have repaired their relationship.
“They basically told everyone that it’s all good now and they’ve moved on from that,” the on-set source said.
Kayla was also there to do a segment in which she introduced the two new girls who are appearing on ‘Young and Pregnant’ next season. In addition to “16 and Pregnant” star Madisen Bieth, another girl will appear on Season 3. According to The Ashley’s sources, the sixth girl is also named Kayla– and she has a very unique backstory.
Both Madisen and the new Kayla were Skyped into a segment with Kayla Sessler, Ashley and Dr. Drew Pinsky.
“[The new] Kayla talked about her life and pregnancy,” the on-set source said. “She has a story unlike any we’ve ever seen on ‘Teen Mom.’ She actually planned the pregnancy [to have] her daughter and used [sperm from] a sperm bank to conceive. The reason they needed to use donated sperm is because Kayla’s boyfriend is transgender.”
Several on-set sources confirm that we’ll get to see a clip from the new season of ‘Young and Pregnant’ featuring the new girls, as well as Kayla Sessler, Brianna Jaramillo, Kaiya Elliot and Rachel Beaver.
The Reunion filming continues today, so The Ashley will continue to reveal what happens. Stay tuned!
