Teen Mom: Family Reunion viewers were pleasantly surprised at how well Ashley Jones kept her cool despite being antagonized by Briana DeJesus and Jade Cline. The premiere episode kicked off with the cast members taking part in an exercise known as scream therapy which allowed each person to scream out their frustrations.
Things started off peacefully until it was Briana DeJesus’ turn and she called out Ashley for being fake. Soon enough Jade jumped into the mix.
Ashley immediately apologized and tried to clear the air but Jade took things to another level and at one point the other cast members had to intervene.
However, after the show aired Ashley took to social media to explain why she had no desire to get into a physical altercation.
