Is this the end? Kelsey Owens is leaving Siesta Key after four seasons — and the reality star claimed the decision wasn’t up to her.
“Last night I was walking into scene at a freaking strip club of all places and was informed that I will be cut moving forward on Siesta Key with absolutely no warning,” Owens, 25, wrote via Instagram on Friday, August 5. “It’s mind blowing & truly disgusting that after working on a show since I was 19 years old where I’ve shared things about my personal life I wasn’t always comfortable with, revolved my whole life around, and put so much effort into could come to an end in such a disrespectful manner and so abrupt. Not even a simple ‘thank you for sharing the past 5 years of your life with us.’”
In her lengthy social media post, the former MTV personality reflected on her first reaction to the news, adding, “I cried my eyes out then wiped those tears and filmed my last scene the best I could with my head held high. Despite the way things were handled I am so grateful for the friends I’ve made, once in a lifetime opportunities I’ve been given, and most of all the fans. I wish I could hug each & every one of you.”
The Missouri native noted that her time on the show had a major impact on her life. “You have no idea how much your kind words and support have meant to me and how much they’ve helped me get through some of my toughest times,” she continued. “I couldn’t have made it these past 5 years without y’all so thank you for that. I am truly a better person because of y’all. My time on the show may have come to an end but this is just the beginning for me. 💗Time to strut my way into this next chapter.”
Owens, who appeared on Siesta Key since its debut in 2017, previously revealed that she was thinking of leaving the series. Earlier this year, Owens, Juliette Porter and Madisson Hausburg discussed the model’s future amid her relationship with Max Strong.
“Kelsey’s been dating her boyfriend Max for a while now. He moved from Kentucky to Siesta Key to be with her, which was a pretty big step,” Porter, 25, said during a confessional interview in March. “And even though Max had just moved to be with her — Kelsey had been having some doubts recently about if she even wanted to stay in Florida.”
At the time, Owens admitted that she was considering a move to Los Angeles even if it meant leaving Siesta Key. “It’s definitely something I’ve thought about a lot but also it’s hard because Max just moved here,” she told Hausburg, 27. “I just feel like more and more recently I have kind of been pushed out of the group. I don’t want it to be like that.”
Two months later, the TV personality opened up about her plans during an Instagram Q&A. “I’m staying in FL for myself NO ONE else,” Owens wrote in May in response to a fan question about a potential departure.

Alina Fernández, daughter of the former Cuban dictator who died in 2016, has told Deadline she supports Franco playing her father in the forthcoming independent film “Alina of Cuba.”
“James Franco has an obvious physical resemblance with Fidel Castro, besides his skills and charisma,” she told the publication.
There had been public outcry from some over Franco’s casting, including from actor John Leguizamo, because the actor is not Latino.
“How is this still going on? How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well?” Leguizamo posted on his verified Instagram account.
“No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers! Boycott! This F’d up!,” he wrote. “Plus seriously difficult story to tell without aggrandizement which would b wrong! I don’t got a prob with Franco but he ain’t Latino!”
The film tells the story of Fernández, who was born as the result of a love affair between Cuban-born socialite Natalia “Naty” Revuelta and Castro.
“I’m sure that Mía Maestro, an actress I admire, will understand and interpret Naty, my mother, in a unique way and I can’t wait to see her building her character,” Fernández told Deadline.
“The project is almost entirely Latino, both in front and behind the camera,” she added.
Eminem’s daughter Hailie Jade always looks fabulous no matter what she wears or does and that’s exactly what she did in her latest Instagram post. The 26-year-old rocked a sheer silver mesh tank top with a pair of high-waisted black leather joggers and combat boots for a new episode of her Just A Little Shady podcast.
Hailie posted two photos in a slideshow with the caption, “the first ever traveling podcast episode for the just a little shady podcast is out today at 3pm EST hopefully this is just the beginning.” In the photos, Hailie sat in a rattan chair at Lollapalooza while wearing a sleeveless silver mesh tank top that was completely see-through, revealing a silver bralette underneath.
Hailie styled her tiny, open-back crop top with a pair of black leather high-waisted joggers. The pants had an elastic waist and elastic at the ankles and she styled her look with a black crossbody bag and black patent leather combat boots.
As for her glam, Hailie had her brown hair thrown back into a ponytail while parted in the middle, leaving a few pieces out on either side to frame her face. A glossy pink lip and a subtle smokey eye completed her look.
Hailie has been rocking a slew of fabulous outfits lately and aside from this look, she recently wore a tiny white one-shoulder crop top with a pair of high-waisted biker shorts and sneakers in a new photo to promote Puma.
Hailie posted a selfie with the caption, “never too busy to show off my shoes @pumawomen #pumapartner #foralltime.” In the photo, Hailie put her toned abs and tiny waist on display in a super cropped, asymmetrical one-shoulder, white ribbed crop top. She styled the shirt with a pair of skintight, black high-waisted biker shorts and a pair of bright orange, low-rise Puma sneakers.
