There’s been some serious drama surrounding this year’s Teen Mom 2 reunion, and we’re not even talking about what’s going to go down on stage. In a March 28 interview with Radar Online, cast member Briana DeJesus revealed that things had gotten so bad that the stars were all filming their segments separately. Just a few days later, Briana revealed that she wouldn’t be going to the reunion at all — and then Kailyn Lowrychimed in to say the same thing. At the last minute, though, Kail changed her mind, and now she exclusively told In Touch the reason why. Check out the gallery below to get all the details on the latest drama.
They butted heads both on stage and behind the scenes. A fight even broke out before they started filming, although the mom-of-three revealed on her podcast, Coffee Convos, that nobody actually hit anyone else.

But it did get close.
“I did confront her in a room, no cameras, and yes, I did want to punch her and yes, I did try. The security guards got me before I could,” Kail, 27, clarified. On stage, things escalated further.
“I will not be attending the reunion this year. I am sorry guys!” the 24-year-old tweeted on March 30. Just an hour earlier, she’d also posted, “LOL what a f–king joke,” leading some fans to believe that she was skipping filming because of problems with her costars or the show.

Kail decided to stay home, too.
After her costar’s announcement, Kail chimed in, “A little birdie told me Briana isn’t going to the reunion. Which is funny cause I’m not either. Let’s see how this goes.”

But it seems she’s changed her tune.
On her social media accounts, the star confirmed that she did head up to New York after all. And while filming for the show on Friday, April 5, she made sure to highlight her beauty products line, Pothead Haircare.

In fact, that’s the only reason she went.
She told In Touch exclusively, “I came here to give the audience Pothead.” She wasn’t there to rehash everything she’d already been through this season or her past drama with costars — she was just promoting her business.

She made sure everyone knew what the trip was about.
On her Instagram story, she made sure to show off the products as she was getting her hair and makeup done backstage. She even tagged the hair care line’s Instagarm on her posts just to make things crystal clear.

Even Pothead had to get camera ready.
In another Instagram Story, she showed off clips of crew members working to arrange the products on a little try so that they could be featuring during filming. She wasn’t planning on missing a single second of exposure.

She shared the giveaway, too.
In a couple different photos, she posed with audience members as they showed off their new packages of Pothead Haircare, smiling with the beauty product line.

She made sure her Twitter followers knew, too.
“Gave all the audience @potheadhair,” she tweeted with another photo of Teen Mom fans holding up their new beauty products. In the responses, fans were excited — and some wanted to know if they could get some at the Sunday taping.

Unfortunately for them, Kail won’t be around then.
She seemed to confirm what Briana had told Radar about all of the cast members filming their segments separately. “I won’t be here [on Sunday morning],” she told one fan who asked her to save them a bag for another day of filming.

Of course, this won’t be Pothead’s on-screen debut.
In a recent episode, Jenelle Evans was seen receiving the products as a peace offering from Kail — but she pretty much immediately decided to light them on fire in her yard.

It was basically one big “f–k you” to Kail.
“You’re an idiot cuz this is what I do for gifts sent from fake ass bitches like you,” she wrote on social media. “Stay our [sic] of my life, go worry about your own,” she told her costar.

Some people were excited about Pothead, though.
Kail’s costar and friend, Leah Messer, supported her against Jenelle. Online, she even joked about getting her hands on some of the products in the line herself.

She had her fun.
“Send me some stuff to set on fire,” she tweeted at Kail. She even brought ex Jeremy Calvert into it, and the former couple joked about it with Kail together as she promised them, “I got you.”

Hopefully the audience is more receptive than Jenelle.
We’re crossing our fingers that no more hair care products are burned at the stake. But, hey, if anybody doesn’t want theirs, it seems like there are more than a few fans on Twitter who would be happy to score their own swag.
