From physical fights, to a COVID breakout to a crew strike, the filming of Teen Mom Family Reunion Season 2 was a complete dumpster fire and now fans are going to see how it all plays out on-screen!
On Tuesday, MTV released the first trailer for ‘TMFR’ Season 2, which premiere next month. Earlier this year, The Ashley gave you all the details on the theme of the season (which was working on the girls’ relationships with their mothers) and informed you that the season was filmed at a resort in Oregon. Girls from Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant participated, as well as Leah Shirley and Bentley Edwards and a few of the baby daddies.
The Ashley broke the news months ago of a massive brawl on the set of Teen Mom Family Reunion and after a long wait, fans of the franchise are finally getting their first look at the chaos in the new trailer.
The trailer is packed with the cast (and some of their moms and spouses) taking part in group activities like bungee jumping and white water rafting and doing something a little suspicious in the kitchen.
However, the real fun–- and by fun we mean utter chaos–- comes when the furniture begins flying.
As The Ashley previously reported, the showdown occurred between Briana DeJesus and Ashley Jones (and their mothers, Roxanne and Tea) while the show was filming back in September. In the trailer for the upcoming season, we get to see some of the events leading up to the fight, including Tea spilling her feelings to some of the cast.
“Y’all speak on my daughter, I’m coming for your mother f**king ass,” she screams in the clip.
We’re then treated to an angry Ashley yelling “f*ck you” to someone– presumably Briana. As a large metal piece of furniture is shown flying through the air, Briana can be seen getting held back by multiple security guards–- none of which she has dated (to our knowledge).
Roxanne can be heard yelling (presumably to Tea) that her “daughter is a bully!”
After the fight, Ashley and her mom, as well as Briana and her mom, were booted from filming.
“ … I know I’m not the only one with mommy issues,” Catelynn Lowell says in the clip after (probably) thanking her lucky stars that her mom, April Baltierra, prefers drinking, smoking and screaming to throwing fists and furniture.
The ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ Season 2 cast includes: Catelynn and April; Tea and Ashley; Roxanne and Briana; Kiaya Elliott and her mom Tiffany; Kayla Sessler and her mom Jaime; Cheyenne Floyd and her mom Margaret; Jade Cline and her mom Christy; and Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood (who came without their mothers). (A few of the baby daddies also ended up coming for some of the filming.)
As The Ashley previously reported, filming was halted when the behind-the-scenes crew went on strike due to contract issues, and were picketing in front of the resort that the ‘Teen Mom’ cast was filming at. While a different production company is used for ‘TMFR’ than the other ‘Teen Mom’ shows, producers ended up calling in the old ‘Teen Mom’ crew members to complete filming.
Also hindering production during the weeks the show was filmed in September was an outbreak of COVID-19, which hit at least four cast members and caused several others to have to stay quarantined in their hotel rooms for part of their time in Oregon.
The craziness that is ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ Season premieres January 3 on MTV.
