EXCLUSIVE! ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’ Girl Dropped From Cast Before New Season: Get All the Details!

Get ready for yet ANOTHER ‘Young & Pregnant’ cast shake-up!

The cast of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is getting a slight overhaul for next season!

Back in October, The Ashley told you that ‘Young and Pregnant’ had been renewed for 12 more episodes, but that only some of the girls featured on last season will be moving forward. Now, The Ashley can exclusively reveal who’s in and who’s out of the ‘Young and Pregnant’ cast!

As fans know, the last season of the MTV spin-off starred Brianna JaramilloKayla SesslerRachel Beaver, and Kiaya Elliott, as well as Madisen Beith and Kayla Jones, both of whom appeared on some of the season’s episodes.

At the time of The Ashley’s last cast update, only four girls had been asked back to film. However, since then one additional girl has been filming, and one has been cut from the cast.

“Kayla [Jones] got dropped,” a source close to Kayla tells The Ashley. “They did not renew her contract so she won’t be in the new 12 episodes. She was disappointed, especially since she has so much happening in her life right now that would be good to film. But MTV made their choice so there’s really nothing she can do.”

“You guys ‘Jenelled’ me?!”

The Ashley’s production sources tell her that, originally, they had planned to go with Kayla Jones and drop Madisen; however, it soon became clear that the viewers related to Madisen’s story much more than Kayla’s.

“You think I’m gonna say no!? HELL NO! Do you SEE the size of the houses the OG ‘Teen Mom’ girls live in!?”

“[The producers] feel like, because Kayla is older than Madisen, and because Kayla’s pregnancy was intentional, her story didn’t really catch on the way [the producers] had hoped,” The Ashley’s production source tells her. “The network thought that, because Kayla’s story included a transgender partner, it was timely and topical, but it just didn’t catch on.” 

The Ashley’s source is unsure if Madisen knows that Kayla is no longer on the show, and it’s unclear if Kayla knows Madisen is continuing.

Kayla Jones may appear on one of the new episodes though, as she attended a birthday party for Kiaya’s son a few months back. The party was filmed, so footage may appear on the show eventually.

The fact that the show was renewed at all is surprising, considering Season 3 had been plagued by terrible ratings. As The Ashley previously reported, Season 3 did not start off well, with the premiere episode receiving only 260,000 live/same day viewers. The show’s numbers continued to plummet as the season went on, with an October episode bringing in an insanely low number of only 160,000 viewers.  

“Those ratings stink worse than my kid’s diaper pail, y’all!”

The ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’ cast has had a lot of shake-ups since the show premiered in 2018. After Season 1, Lexi Tatman was fired from the cast and Jade Cline was moved to Teen Mom 2Rachel Beaver and Kiaya were added to the cast for Season 2. At the end of Season 2, Ashley Jones was also moved to the ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast, and Madisen and Kayla Jones were added. 

The Ashley’s production sources tell her that the ‘Young and Pregnant’ girls are still currently filming, and “no one knows yet” when the new episodes will begin airing.

  1. President John Adams and his wife Abigale into the WH (1800)
    Although G. Washington did select the site for the WH in 1791.
    Don’t forget, also the fire and re-build
    You would think a sitting President would know some history
    5th graders know this


    1. George Washington chose the site true, but he also lived there after the original build and until the fire.

      Lucy, I learned this in 3rd grade, but I had a homeschool teacher, MUCH better than public school.

      The name of the show is Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, but it should be Are You Smarter Than a 3rd Grader.


  2. Sorry Mae, you were the one that made the “available to the masses”, I should’ve give credit was due


    1. You misunderstood me. I wasn’t blaming him for it not being available to the masses. I was saying that despite him downplaying the concern of the virus and then taking the flight to Walter Reed and accepting all of the care he did-even while telling the country it wasn’t a big deal-I found that ironic. Again, not saying he or any administration is responsible for the care he received not being accessible to all.


  3. Another problem they have is that they don’t advertise this show at all. Try promoting it for once


  4. I don’t think either girl brought anything new to the show. Madisen was boring, blink and you missed her anyway. Kayla J intentionally got pregnant, and her story is not relatable to the majority of viewers. I personally find Y&P more enjoyable than tmog or tm2.


  5. Right. Been a terrible year and anyone who doesn’t see it… Wow.

    If someone doesn’t get vaxxed, that’s on them. It should be a choice, period. And if you have a vax, you should be safe from whatever, right? Ok.


    1. While I agree that it should be a choice, I don’t agree that it protects you from getting sick.

      Lots of people get sick (or die) from the “vaccine” and there have been reinfections, most by fully vaccinated people. But you don’t see it in the news because the media is afraid of making Biden and manufacturers look bad.


      1. Post link to ONE medical journal that backs this. Saying you “don’t have time” just means you are full of crap


        1. @You are Ingorant, you the one full of crap (or on something) not sure which.

          I don’t back the “vaccine”. Plain and simple!!

          I don’t have time for you. That’s the God’s honest truth, I just hope and pray that if youve fallen for this “vaccine” conspiracy that you stay well.


      2. Funny how there’s always so many Covid wards in hospitals but there’s never any vaccine injury wards in these hospitals. You very clearly do not understand how vaccines or science work and no one is hiding anything. Q anon has seriously destroyed this country along with peoples IQs.


        1. @TNC, how do you know the people in covid wards are suffering from vaccine injury, newsflash YOU DONT because the media is covering it up.

          It’s a conspiracy!!!


          1. COP, bless your heart
            Please find a real news source
            Let me know if you need recommendations.
            🤠


          2. I got real news sources, CONSERVATIVE news sources!!!

            EPOCH TIMES, Reuters, The Blaze, etc.

            It’s good, decent, TRUTHFUL reading


          3. By decent and truthful I mean not flip floppy.

            They say one thing and stay with it, take it or leave it.


      3. How the f*ck would it make Biden look bad when the vaccine came out under Trump. Y’all really have no clue what you’re talking about.


        1. Because Biden is pushing a MANDATE, Trump is pro-vaccine but not to the point of making people feel like the HAVE to get it to survive.

          Natural immunity exists, we don’t need a jab to get immune!!!

          Newsflash people, your can still get infected or reinfected fully vaccinated and/or boosted (Linda Garton and her husband are two of them, along with my governor Andy Beshear’s son Will).

          People are feeling the pressure from this dumbass that a jab is gonna save them but they’re getting sick (or dying) because they HAVE to get it. It’s senseless!!

          He’s plain and simple, stupid and worthless, can’t wait to get rid of him!!!


  6. chose not to watch young and pregnant anymore but from what i’ve been hearing i feel like madisen’s gonna be too boring compared to kayla J’s. plus since when does mtv care what’s relatable and what’s not???


  7. I don’t particularly care for either girl… I certainly won’t miss Kayla, though. Her baby dad’s journey with his mom was the only interesting part of her segments, all Kayla did was try to get people to tell her she was right in the way she was acting and then get mad when they told her she was wrong lol. 🤷🏼‍♀️


  8. I had to fast forward through what little bit I saw of Madison. She seemed to barely speak. But I barely remember seeing her at all? Maybe 3 or 4 times.


  9. Personally I didn’t think either new girl added anything but if I had to choose between Madisen and Kayla Jones, I would choose Kayla.

    You would think that MTV would pay attention to such low numbers. All of the Teen Mom shows have declined greatly yet they keep putting them on and renewing for more seasons. I’m at the point that I literally dislike everyone from Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, most are horrible people yet they are rich from these shows. I don’t think the Y & P girls make anywhere near what TMOG and TM2 makes. But, the Y & P girls are really boring. I used to prefer that show but that isn’t the case anymore.


  10. That’s unfortunate. I could care less about Kayla,but Antivax Madisen and her Trumpy dad I could definitely do without. Just throw away the whole show at this point honestly.


    1. Hey, I like Trump. He’s better than that piece of crap we got now. 10 to 1, if Trump was still there we wouldn’t still be fighting this virus!!!

      And I don’t consider myself antivax, I didn’t get it and I’m not going too. But it’s a personal choice. You want it get it, if not don’t. It’s that simple


      1. Your perspective intrigues me..why do you believe that we wouldn’t still be fighting the virus if Trump were in office?


        1. Because I think he’s more brains in his little finger than Biden has in his entire body!!

          MANDATING (or trying to) something that should be a CHOICE should tell you that much!!


          1. Is anyone physically forcing anyone else to be vaccinated? No, if they were it would be a true mandate. People are free to find other employment if they disagree with the rules of those they work for.


          2. Biden’s sorry ass is trying to force people to take the shot.

            And people shouldn’t be forced to find other employment because they CHOOSE not to do something another person says they have to do.

            Last I looked it was still a free country, at least it will when we FINALLY get rid of Biden.


          3. Yes it IS a free country
            As is…
            You are free to find other employment OR medical care
            You are free to get sick
            You are free to be uneducated and ignorant

            I am free to stay away from ignorant people like you


          4. Look, I am not going to insult your views or personal opinions on political parties. That being said..the virus was still a very large problem when the former was still in office. In my humble opinion, he utilized it as another tool to divide the country. He downplayed the entire situation until he contracted it and then used every resource available to get well (some resources that are still not available to the masses). If you’re choosing not to vaccinate the least you (used in general-not specifically) could do is maintain distance/wear a mask, etc to protect those who are most vulnerable. However, even that has been made into a political divider. If our citizens considered the masses more than their individual selves, I think we’d all be in a better situation. Again, just my thoughts on the situation.


          5. @MAE, we were united at wanting to beat this thing be it natural or with a shot until Biden frauded, lied and cheated his way into office (and place him and Harris have no need to be).

            Now it’s all “get the shot, get boosted”, BULLSHIT, people still get sick and some even die no matter what!!!!


          6. I’m educated @You are Ignorant, just not in the head in the sand, wool over my eyes way that you ate.


      2. With all due respect to your opinion, I think we’d be better off if Former President Trump had not ignored or tried to minimize the virus in 2/2020. Then enabling it to become politicized caused fractions (anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers), never a good way to solve anything.

        And Donald trump is neither bright nor honest. He’s conniving and very good at it.


        1. That’s the way to get past a sickness, you minimize it, make people realize ITS JUST A VIRUS (NO DIFFERENT THAN THE FLU).

          Speaking of the flu, the president during that era was much like Trump in this way, he downplayed it and guess what…it eased up I’m less than 2 years, here we are going into year 3 (thanks to Biden) and still fighting.


          1. I’m all for differences of opinions but you are a whole new level of misinformed. And are combative for sake of being combative. I am usually tolerant but I wish I could block you. You ruin my Ashley experience because you have are in EVERY thread MANY times spewing 💩….making it so hard to scroll past you.


          2. There’s one way to avoid me me…DON’T COME ON HERE!! Maybe I’m intolerable to you because you know I’m right but you’re one of these head in the sand, wool over your eyes people and don’t want to admit it.

            And whomever it was that slammed Trump for not making what got him better “available to the masses” (I can’t find the comment now), did ya ever think that he COULDN’T make it available because his administration was going out and Biden’s was coming in making it impossible to validate something because he was no longer in power? Trump wanted to release what got him better to the masses but Biden’s administration refused to work peaceably with Trump’s administration.

            Im as hopeful as the next person but bottom line…Biden is TRASH and we will still be fighting this in 2 years because of him.


        2. AMEN !! Say it louder for the cheap seats.
          Trump is a con man that found a group to follow him.
          He is so smart he thought George Washington was the 1st Prez. to live in the White house….


          1. George Washington was the first president, therefore the first to live in the White House…uh dur, go back to school Lucy!!!!
