21 Of The Most Memorable 'Teen Mom' Showdowns (Ranked)

Fans of the show Teen Mom know that when it comes to feuds between the girls, these girls truly know how to go hard. From social media to back-stage (and on-stage) brawls to legal threats, just name it and it has been done probably.

Now, not everything about these girls is bad. There are a lot of moments that could make a fan cry or just have them smiling from ear-to-ear, but nowadays it seems the more drama they produce, the more air time they get, and MTV is not shy about hiding their fight scenes. In fact, some of the girls have even brought this up against MTV. All MTV wants nowadays for the show is the girls with the most drama.

Which is probably why the show has done so well for so long. Everyone loves drama, they love seeing how real a celebrity can get, and of course, all the cute kids running around.

Over the past few years, there are have been quite a few fights, either in person or over social media. From family to couples to just cast members... Sadly, we weren’t able to list them all, there are way too many, but we did pick the top 21 feuds. Listed below are some of the most intense feuds throughout the show's history, all ranked from Eh to Wow!

Maci and Ryan are another Teen Mom pair that have quite the rocky past.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, typically, in the past, Maci and Ryan have been able to sort out their drama and have a civil relationship for their son Bentley's sake. Unfortunately, with Ryan’s new “interest” it is going to be a bit harder for Macy to forgive and forget.

In the past season of Teen Mom OG, fans learned that Maci no longer trusts Ryan being alone with their son. To make matters worse, Mackenzie has been stirring the pot even more by taking shots at Macy over social media.

She mainly went off about how everyone went after her for allowing Ryan to drive to the wedding while under the influence and how he had lost consciousness a few times while driving.

theashleysrealityroundup.com & In Touch Weekly

Jenelle Evans has gotten a lot of negative criticism due to her relationship with David Eason.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, one of the biggest critics was David’s own sister, Jessica Eason Miller. Jessica basically went off on Jenelle with the same old rants: she is a bad mom, she has a sketchy past, etc. Nothing new, and nothing that really bothered Jenelle too much because she has heard these claims a million times in the past.

She still didn’t take them lying down though and in a public social media exchange, Jenelle tore into Jessica.

9 Farrah Abraham Vs. Bristol (Farrah: She Is Stalking Me)

Life & Style & Perez Hilton

When Bristol was added to the cast of Teen Mom OG after Farrah was fired, Farrah was convinced that Bristol wanted to be just like her and was stalking her.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, there is no real explanation behind Farrah thinking this besides the fact that Bristol replaced her. Bristol, on the other hand, has denied all claims and has been pretty open about how she wants nothing to do with Farrah.

Fans will probably agree that she is not the only one.

Instead of taking her frustration out on Ryan, Mackenzie decided to hit up the most recent girl he was talking to. Unfortunately, for Mackenzie, she did not come out on top as she had planned.

Mackenzie’s argument ended by the girl simply stating, “Your husband is the one on Tinder.” Sadly, she was 100% in the right with that one.

6 Jenelle Evans Vs. Kailyn Lowry (Jenelle: Don't Try To Make Peace And Then Talk Bad About Me Next Day)

People & Monsters and Critics

According to hollywoodgossip.com, these two have been trading insults with one another ever since. Jenelle even went so far as to leak Kailyn’s pregnancy with her third child all over social media. It has gotten worse since though and Jenelle’s husband has even gotten involved by posting videos of photos that talks negatively about Kail’s appearance and lifestyle.

When things got bad for Jenelle though, Kail tried to make amends by sending her a PR package of her new haircare products and reaching out, which ended with Jenelle setting fire to them.

5 Farrah Abraham Vs. MTV (They Force Us To Keep Making Babies)


It seems that when it comes to MTV, there are quite a few cast members who have had some feuds with the network, Farrah including.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, Farrah took her feud with the network to the next level when she accused the Teen Mom franchise of forcing the girls to have more children in order to create drama and more content for the show.

She then even went so far as to accusing producers of egging Amber on during their fight on the reunion show and how she was wrongly let go from the show due to the extra activities she did on the side for money. Which, MTV was 100% willing to work with her, as long as she stopped those activities. Farrah chose the wrong path though.

4 Kailyn Lowry Vs. Briana DeJesus (Kailyn Was Not Too Happy Briana Was Dating Her Ex-Husband)

People & OK! Magazine

Briana DeJesus was not welcomed with open arms when she first was cast in 2017 for Teen Mom 2. As mentioned earlier, she became even more disliked after she started dating Kailyn’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, a move that drove a huge, un-fixable, wedge between her and Kailyn.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, although these two were never close as fans thought they were, they were at one point pretty civil with one another. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be with these two and they have been feuding on the reg, on the show and over social media.

Luckily, it seems they have calmed down a bit since Javi moved on and is no longer an issue.

3 Jenelle Evans Vs. Radar Online (Stop Posting Rumors!)

Entertainment Tonight

When it comes to Radar Online, it seems Jenelle is always posting about how they are liars and like to start and create drama.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, in one of her more current beefs with the news outlet, Radar Online posted about how Jenelle doesn’t have a fence around her huge in-ground pool and how it is a danger to her children. In response to this article, Jenelle posted a drone photo of not only her husband shirtless, but of the fence that surrounds the pool — a fence that is at least 20-30 feet back from the pool by the way. A fence that far is about a football fields length for those with little kids.

Well played Jenelle. She sure showed them.

2 Kailyn Lowry Vs. Barbara Evans (Barbara: It Was A Joke, Get Over It)

celebrityinsider.org & 16 and Pregnant & Teen Mom Wiki - Fandom

In a recent episode of Teen Mom 2, fans saw a live video that Barbara did with her daughter Jenelle, while the two were on vacation with one another.

Kailyn, in response, was not amused by it and threatened to quit the show for good this time due to Barbara’s actions, actions that Barbara says was all a joke. Jenelle has been quite adamant also that it was all a joke, and that Kailyn is envious of them and wants them off the show.

So far, the situation is far from over, but for fans of Kail, it seems as if she has decided to stay on the show for a bit longer.

1 Jenelle Evans Vs. David Eason (Jenelle: It Was Just A Dramatic Misunderstanding)

Us Weekly

Since the two lovebirds have gotten together, it has been them against the world. They have received not only negative criticism from fans, but also from those close to them. For good reason too. It is quite obvious that these two are not meant to be.

According to hollywoodgossip.com, these two have been at each other’s throats from the start. There have been quite a few heated arguments that have aired on Teen Mom 2, even one that happened the night before their wedding.

Things got more serious though. Back in October 2018, Jenelle called 911 in complete hysterics due to a fight that had left her injured. Once she left the hospital though, she was quick to explain that it was all a misunderstanding, she was not right in the head at the time, and her marriage was amazing.
