News is still sinking in that Teen Mom 2 is getting a new cast member, and it looks like one of the current stars isn't even ready to address it yet. Jenelle Evans refused to comment on Briana DeJesus joining the show, and honestly, it seems like a pretty mature move for her.

The Ashley's Reality Roundup all but confirmed last week that the former Teen Mom 3 star will be joining Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea DeBoer, and Leah Messer on their long-running series, and apparently not too many people are thrilled with the decision.

Briana will certainly bring her own dose of drama, considering that she is pregnant with her second child (and, like Kail, has yet to reveal who the father is). She also has a shady history of shade-throwing with Jenelle Evans, after Jace's mom shared a link to an article about Bri's ex in 2014. 

On Monday, Jenelle told TheDirty.com that she's "not commenting on it at all." The 25-year-old added, "MTV wanted me to film about it and I even told them no," and also mentioned that the network wanted to do the same "with the rest of the girls."

Given Jenelle's past history of starting feuds with her costars as often as seemingly possible, we have to commend her this time for keeping her thoughts to herself. Since the show will remain just an hour each week, Briana's addition is obviously going to cut down on her screen time, which can't be good news for Jenelle, who depends on MTV for her income.

She has every reason to be upset about it, especially considering her past with Ms. DeJesus -- but she's wisely choosing to not get involved in some silly social media war. We hope she's spending the time enjoying her newborn daughter Ensley and engagement to David Eason instead.
