MTVThe fight broke out during Tuesday night’s episode of Teen Mom: Family Reunion[/caption]
In the scene, the girls got into a screaming match that turned physical while defending their mothers Roxanne and Tea.
It all began when Tea accused Roxanne of being “disrespectful” after she bumped into her.
Their daughters then got involved, escalating the dispute.
Briana stood on the counter and began yelling at Ashley while the other castmates encouraged the mom of two to get down.
“You can’t fight. Get down. Come down, baby,” Ashley said to her co-star.
Ashley, 25, addressed Briana in her confessional interview, saying: “B***h you’re trash. You’re beneath trash. That’s really how I feel about you, and now I’m going to show you that.”
Ashley then spat in Briana’s face, prompting the Teen Mom 2 star to jump off the counter and lunge at her.
The scene continued with the ladies exchanging expletives, and at one point, Briana yelled: “B***h you drag my mother cause I’ll f**king drag you hoe. I’ll f**k you up. I’ll f**k you up. You’re a motherf**king p***y hoe.”
Later in the episode, Briana reflected on her growth, commenting on how “mature” she thought she acted in the situation.
“I think last year I learned a lesson. I had to leave and get put up in a different hotel,” the 28-year-old explained.
“I came here with my mother and I really wanted my mom and me to experience this whole thing, and I wasn’t gonna let anybody stop that from happening, and I think I was mature enough not to get super escalated.”
MTV producers ended up ordering Briana, Ashley, and their mothers to leave the premises due to their behavior.
BRIANA SPEAKS OUT
While the episode aired, Briana took to Twitter to address her actions and defend her mother for “standing up for the kids.”
“Really was quite [sic] the wholeeeee time [insert laughing face emoji] (minus the interviews bc I did mine after the fight and let anger speak) but I really wanted to vibe out and enjoy my time with my friends [insert laughing face emojis],” one tweet read.
In a second tweet, Briana responded to a viewer’s take on what happened between Roxanne and Tea that started the incident.
“I think Roxanne’s arm definitely touched Tea but I don’t think Roxanne ‘bumped’ into Tea necessarily..” the fan speculated.
Briana supported her mother, replying: “She tried to move out the way even tho my mom was there first [insert laughing face emoji] I didn’t hear an excuse me from them when they tried to get into the wine cooler but maybe I’m delusional lmao.”
The Florida native again bashed Ashley’s mother’s reaction, pointing out Tea’s beef with her other castmate’s mothers.
“If 4 moms (roxy, tiff, christy, and jamie) had an issue with Tea about the same thing…. I don’t think it was wrong of my mom to speak her mind. My mom was standing up for all the kids in the situation,” Briana said, mentioning her co-stars Jade Cline, Kiaya Elliott, and Kayla Sessler‘s mothers.
However, not all fans were in Briana’s corner, with one tweeting: “You are a Bully and so is your mother.”
The reality star clapped back at the troll, replying: “If you wanna swap spit the right way you know where to find me [insert pink heart emojis].”
Others disagreed with how Briana handled the encounter and voiced their opinions in an online thread.
“Wait that’s what Bri calls not saying anything ? Her whole a** self was jumping on the counter,” one said, referencing her tweets.
“Good thing the footage proves Roxanne AND Briana are lying because the footage proves Roxanne DID bump Tea first.
“Bri and her mom are just really unintelligent, out of touch with reality and love to lie like weirdos,” another wrote.
“She really was quiet most of the time,” a third person mocked.
“When she says ‘kids’ I’m assuming she’s talking about the 30+ years old cast of ‘teen moms.’
“Yeah I’m sure your mom really needed to stand up for the ‘kids’ in this situation,” a fourth joked.
The fight between Roxanne and Tea had been brewing as earlier in the episode, the reality TV grandmothers got into another heated battle.
The drama also involved Catelynn Lowell‘s mother, April, though things didn’t escalate until later in the night.
