It’s been months since The Ashley broke the news of a massive fight on the set of Teen Mom Family Reunion but things among the show’s cast continued to be tense at this past weekend’s Reunion tapings…and The Ashley has all the details on what went down!
Last weekend, the cast of ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’– as well as Teen Mom: The Next Chapter— flew to Los Angeles to film the Reunion episodes for both shows. And, naturally, because this is ‘Teen Mom’, a lot of drama went down– from angry twerking to arguments, to a on-stage walk off!
According to The Ashley’s sources, the ‘Next Chapter’ Reunion was filmed the first day. Due to the huge fight that went down between Briana DeJesus and Ashley Jones (and their mothers) during the filming of ‘Family Reunion’ in September, “tension was high” on set, as it was the first time the girls had seen each other since they were kicked off ‘Family Reunion.’
“Briana was told that Ashley would be on-stage with her for a segment featuring all of the girls, but that they would seat Ashley far away from Briana,” one behind-the-scenes source tells The Ashley. “When Briana saw that Ashley wasn’t actually very far from her on stage, Briana walked off and told [the producers] that she didn’t feel comfortable.”
“The producers tried to get Briana to go back out there with Ashley but she refused and told them she didn’t feel safe,” the source added.
Interestingly, though, when it came time to film the Reunion for ‘Family Reunion’ the next day, things were completely different. (For the record, the ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ reunion show is being called—eyeroll— “The Aftermath.”)
“Ashley wasn’t allowed on the set anywhere near any of the other girls for the ‘Family Reunion’ taping,” another source tells The Ashley. “They said she was banned for ‘legal reasons’ and everyone assumed it’s because [the fight] happened on the ‘Family Reunion’ set. It was just so weird that the day before Ashley was allowed near everyone.”
(One explanation for the change in the handling of Ashley could be that ‘Family Reunion’ was produced by a completely different production company than ‘Next Chapter’ and the other ‘Teen Mom’ shows, so they most likely have different protocols.)
“Ashley filmed separately from everyone else,” the source said. “Some of the [other] girls were pissed because they had to sit up on the stage for like 10 hours, and it was a long, miserable day, and Ashley didn’t have to do that.”
(Tea, as well as Briana’s mom Roxanne, attended the ‘TMFR’ Aftermath taping. However, two of the other “grandmas” were absent.)

The first source tells The Ashley that another incident went down at the end of filming that made Ashley “lose any remaining allies she may have had in the cast.”
“At the end of the filming, all the girls other than Ashley got into two vans to leave the set. They passed Ashley on their way out and she realized who was in the vans. That’s when she began doing her signature twerking moves at the second van,” the source said.
(To The Ashley’s knowledge, this was not filmed, unless it was caught on a dash cam or something.)
“A lot of the girls found it super-disrespectful and it really angered one girl in particular, someone who had not had any previous disagreements with Ashley and had previously liked her,” the second source tells The Ashley. “That girl confronted Ashley later on the phone and that conversation ended in a huge argument. No one got physical but it probably would have if the conversation had been in-person.”
“After that, a lot of the girls made it clear to the producers that they will not do another season of ‘Family Reunion’ if Ashley is there.”
The Ashley will have more info soon…stay tuned.
