Is Kailyn Lowry done with Teen Mom 2? On Monday night's episode of the show, Kail made it pretty clear that she doesn't want to continue on with MTV if they keep costars Jenelle Evans and Briana DeJesus around. During the episode, Jenelle and her mom did an Instagram Live with Briana, and joked about "killing" Kail. 

  • Barbara and Jenelle Evans got away for a girls' trip to Atlanta, and appeared to get a little crazy with the booze.

    While filming a live video on social media with Briana, Barbara joked they should "all get lit, and we'll go kill Kail." Producer Kristen called Barbara while the stream was still going on, to explain that you can't go around threatening to kill people, because apparently that's not common knowledge. 

    Kristen told Babs, "You have to tell Kail you were joking ... There's a huge s--t storm that you told Kail you wanna kill her. Tell her you were joking, because you are. You don't want to kill Kail!" Jenelle responded on the live stream, "Just chill the f--k out, oh my God. Kail's probably watching this s--t right now."

  • Kail was not, in fact, watching, as she was at her son's birthday party. 

    She and her ex Jo Rivera were getting along fabulously, celebrating their son Isaac's birthday together. Producer Kristen came to Kail's house to discuss the Jenelle and Barbara drama, and Kail was clearly upset over the whole thing. People had sent her screenshots of the Instagram Live video, but she hadn't otherwise known about it. 

    It sounds like she may be done with MTV over the incident. She said, "I don't want to be a part of a franchise that allows that kind of behavior. I'm not getting on Instagram Live talking about killing anyone. Anytime that I talk about them is in response to something else. At some point, you have to choose to disassociate with people and I don't want to associate with them or the DeJesuses. I just don't."

  • Meanwhile, Jenelle had a theory about the real reason Kail was upset.

    Even though Barbara did reassure viewers that she was joking about killing Kailyn, and Jenelle backed her up, they later appeared to be confused as to why anyone would be offended by their comments. Jenelle speculated, "I think she's envious of us and us reconnecting. None of her family wants anything to do with her and no one does because of the way she is."

    Jenelle and Barbara have reconciled in recent months after being estranged for years over their custody battle for Jace, Jenelle's eldest son. Although we're happy they're getting along these days, we're pretty sure that's not the reason Kailyn was upset with them.

  • At the time of the filming, Kail confirmed that she wouldn't be filming "until further notice."

    She told In Touch, "I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I have three kids to live for, just like Barbara herself. I'm disgusted it came from her. I want no association with any person or network that works with that family. I won't be filming until further notice."

    Is this the end of Kail's run on Teen Mom 2? Could she possibly have quit months ago, without it leaking that she had quit? Did MTV bring in the heavy guns by reminding her of her contractual obligation regarding filming? We'll just have to tune in next week to find out.
