Fans who watched Season 4 of 16 & Pregnant know that of the four mothers chosen to participate in Teen Mom 3 Alexandria Sekella is the one most likely to tell you exactly what she’s thinking, and tell you loudly! So what happens when Alex’s outspoken personality clashes with that of the similarly boisterous Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom 2? The answer is an early 4th of July celebration in the form of Twitter fireworks!
The recent conflict started after Alex’s daughter Arabella (Bellie) was feeling ill and Alex tweeted about having to take her to the hospital. “Just spent the night in the ER waiting an hour on bellie script I’m cranky!!!” Alex wrote before iterating (and foreshadowing events to come) by adding, “Today I not a day to f*** with me.”
Jenelle makes a little extra coin (literally according to some) on the side with an account at the blogging/social media site Sulia, which essentially makes money by serving as a middle man for internet content, and then they share that revenue with folks who are able to generate high traffic through their links. (No, I have no idea how Sulia makes money in the first place.) Soon after Alex’s posting about her daughter, Jenelle shared this tweet with a link to her Sulia account, which had a link to a story about Alex’s tweet. (Keeping up with the Teen Moms online is a difficult process with multiple layers. Every tweet seems to generate right around three stories on average and 10-12 Sulia links. But I digress…) Here’s the tweet from Jenelle with the link:
OH NO! Alexandria Sekella Rushes Daughter to Hospital, Is She OK? http://sulia.com/…
Apparently Alex has had issues with Jenelle before about being linked to through Jenelle’s Sulia account, as evidenced by this Twitter exchange between Alex and Brittany DeJesus, the sister of her Teen Mom 3 cast mate Briana DeJesus on June 19:
Brittany DeJesus: “@PBandJenelley_1: Briana Dejesus Goes Ring Shopping. Is She Engaged?! http://sulia.com/…” b!tch… is 5 cents worth the lies?!
Alex: @BrittDeJesus_ tell that botch how it is please!!!!!!
Brittany: @OfficialSekella she’s so f***king annoying.
Alex: @BrittDeJesus_ I know she has 0 real friends n is fake as hell
So, given the combination of Alex’s disdain for Jenelle’s Suliaing their business and her crankiness from being at the hospital all night with her daughter Arabella, the situation was essentially a powder keg waiting to explode — and it did! Actually, things started off quite congenially:
Alex: @PBandJenelley_1 please leave myself and my daughter off your site thank you
Fan: she’s making money off it and won’t delete it even if you ask.
Alex: I’m not asking for her to delete it just to not put anything again I don’t want any real association with her other then our jobs with mtv
Fan: Her friends Kail Lowry asked Jenelle to not write about her but she keeps doing it. She doesn’t care bout ne1
Alex: but shes not gonna wanna start a fight with me
Fan: You already win. You are a good mom with custody living in the same state as ur kid and no heroin arrests
Not so bad right? Wait… what’s that sound? That’s the sound of the fuse burning!
[After the first line below I will refrain from using Alex's name to preface her tweets, so if there is no name, it's from Alex. Plus, I will exclude most of the Twitter handles included in the tweets, unless it is needed for context. Oh, and of course these tweets took place all over time in multiple Twitter conversations -- I've tried to assemble them in the best order possible for readability. They are, for the most part, chronological starting on June 30.]
Alex: @PBandJenelley_1 seriously I’m pleased u think my story is going to get u more money but hop off my sh!t ur rights should be revoked
Fan: just block her?
I want her to leave me out of her trash site blocking her wont make it go away
Fan: if you dont want her to put in her 2 cents dont make it public U asked opinions i seen the post
no I don’t want her using me to get her drinking money she didn’t right the article
Fan: contact Sulia…
already reported her
Jenelle: oh and I’m sorry u got “pregnant to be on TV” lmao to make $$$$
Hey everybody go like jenelle sulia she needs money for her alcohol and bad habits #drugaddict #loser
I forgot to hash tag #liar #fake
Fan: Not trying to be rude or anything but she isn’t the only one to write about you on Sulia.
I know i just don’t want her using me for her drug money
Jenelle: girl, I don’t write any bad articles about any of u guys. Be the bigger person and shut the f*** up.
Jenelle: one thing about being on Teen Mom… We r all family. Yes I use to be a drug addict, at least I can admit my mistakes.
I didnt say it was bad I said I don’t want u using me for ur alcohol money Dah actually read what I wrote dumb whore
seriously I was 5 ft away u didn’t even acknowledge me say ur family sh!t for someone who actually believes u ur whole
hallway at reunion smelled like straight pot
Fan [to Jenelle]: don’t exploit her child just because u can’t exploit your own
that’s cause he’s in safe hands thankfully not hers
once an addict always an addict she can relapse at any time of she went to a real NA she would know that 1st thing matt learned in his class
Danielle Cunningham [from 16 & Pregnant Season 3]: but you dont admit you mistakes jenelle. You lie about them, then get caught & go to jail.
Jenelle: get the f*** out of my life and worry about YOURS.
Danielle Cunningham: but you write about my life everyday.. I cant talk about yours?
of course not that would obstruct her TM family idea
Ashley Salazar [16 & Pregnant Season 2]: @PBandJenelley_1 that’s messed up. They need to mind their own
Jenelle: @ashleyslzr dude I kno…Just attacked me out of no where
Ashley Salazar: yeah wtf so stupid. #jealous
no one attacked you out of no where I asked politely yesterday for u to stop #ignorant
Jenelle: u called me a drug addict and Said I did Sulia becuz I need money for drugs and alcohol ..
ya well seemed like that’s what ur spending ur money on from ur posts n u use sulia for money
Fan: leave Alex alone, dude. She asked you not to write about her on Sulia& you just kept doing so.
Ashley Salazar: we can write about whomever we please. We are never cruel or mean. Just report based on other articles. And we don’t get to have a say if people write about us. It’s just facts
Jenelle: @ashleyslzr I have permission from the bosses lol that’s all I need
Ashley Salazar: now stop responding cuz we have no lives, yet THEY care? Sulia has nothing to do with our kids etc. so stupid.
Alex: @PBandJenelley_1 what nothing cat got ur tongue u can b a douche to everyone else but can’t say sh!t to me or is that cause u have nothing on me unlike u I do everything for my child stupid whore ur personality is more fake than ur boobs
Fan: @PBandJenelley_1 has 700Kfollows blowing up her mentions evry min.Could it be she didnt C ur tweeting when u askd nicely
I doubt it I’m sure she recognized my name out of all the rest considering I responded to what she posted
Who is she to say we’re family what an idiot I wouldn’t pull half the sh!t she does to my family what a joke
Fan: “@PBandJenelley_1: @OfficialSekella @codydick1979 oh and I’m sorry u got “pregnant to be on TV” um to make $$$$” who opened their legs 1st?
I never even watched the show b4 I got pregnant at least I was on BC
Fan: at least you didn’t have to get dna test
she’s got a number on me when it comes to guys I’ve only ever been with matt i like self respect more then guys
Fan: so let me get this straight. because you ask nicely one time gives you the right to insult her and start stupid drama?
why not she does everyone else
Fan: regardless of anything else was said, the drug comment was a low blow and out of line.
truth f***ing sucks doesn’t
Fan: your truth or her truth? Your truth on what she’s spending her money on or hers? Be better than that.
she posted last night drinking n driving she’s spending her money alcohol what I said was straight truth of observation
Fan: she didn’t actually, though her boyfriend did. And what does that have to do with drugs?
Fan: but to condone that?? She associates herself w/ the wrong ppl. Eventually she’s gonna get in trouble
Fan: oh absolutely. She makes plenty of bad decisions. But there’s still a line to draw when going off.
ya well I crossed it and don’t regret it she gets what she deserves from anyone
see missed a piece of conversation go back n Reread the whole thing yes I made a low blow like she does to everyone else
Fan: no it’s clear you’re not trying to be the bigger person. You can dislike someone classily.
I did for awhile now I even asked politely after that it’s game over
Fan: being classy is not for her benefit, it’s for yours. Never let people drag you down to a level below you.
well after a week of almost no sleep u crack n she made me crack
Fan: is it her fault you haven’t been sleeping?
of course not Dah lol
Fan: take it out on the right people lol not saying you’re wrong for being upset. You’re just better than what you said.
ya well I’m not pretty when I get thoroughly pissed
I use her as an example of what I want Arabella to never be n my sister perfect #example
Fan: i wouldnt even waste my time arguing with people below you sweets
eh it’s entertaining me while bellie sleeps
I refuse to pretend n I will not sugar coat a damn thing I will stay true to myself n what I stand for. Sucks if you don’t like it
[Fan quote's Jenelle's tweet "I have permission from the bosses lol that's all I need"]
oh dont worry i took care of it
@PBandJenelley_1 I talked to them u are suppose to leave me alone they said they made that clear to you
Jenelle: hahahaha if I posted this SS u would’ve pissed but ok sweetheart
don’t worry I’m talking to them now about it all
[There has been some speculation as to who "them" is in Alex's last tweet -- whether or not it is MTV or Sulia.]
Continuing with the Alex vs. Jenelle theme, Alex revealed a little bit about what viewers can expect in Teen Mom 3 Season 1 while taking a dig at the Teen Mom 2 girls (Jenelle specifically) at the same time:
none of us arrested none on drugs and lots of baby daddy drama it’s gonna be GREAT!!!! Haha
So there’s your Teen Mom 3 spoiler — none of them get arrested! (So much for adding to our Teen Mom mug shot collection.)
