Kelsey Owens Says She Was Fired From ‘Siesta Key’ ‘With Absolutely No Warning’ After 4 Seasons

Published

on

Kelsey Owens is out of a job, according to her. On Friday, the 25-year-old reality star told her Instagram followers that she was fired from MTV’s Siesta Key after four seasons. 

ET has reached out to MTV for comment. 

Posting a photo of herself walking a runway in a pink swimsuit, Owens wrote, “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.”

Clearly upset over her apparent departure from the series, Owens added, “It’s mind blowing and 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.”

Owens told her Instagram followers that she was not even given “a simple ‘thank you for sharing the past five years of your life with us.'”

The reality star said upon hearing the news, she still had to film a scene for the show. “I cried my eyes out, then wiped those tears and filmed my last scene the best I could with my head held high,” she wrote. “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 and every one of you. 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.”

Continuing to gush over her fans, Owens concluded her post, “I couldn’t have made it these past five 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.”

The post was met with lots of reactions form Owens’ co-stars and friends. 

Mike Vazquez commented, “Love you Kelsey! You were one of the pillars of this show ❤️❤️.”

Tate Sweatt, who has appeared on the series as Amanda Miller’s boyfriend, also reacted, “Strut your stuff Kelsey!!!! 🤟🏽❤️ proud of you!”

Meanwhile, Miller commented, “I’ll always be so thankful to have met you through the show, but you my friend deserve much better and I can’t wait to see what comes next for you. love you always Kels.”

In addition, Max Strong, Owens’ boyfriend, left a lengthy comment and spoke about his own experience with the production team. “I’m so sorry you were treated this way Kelsey. You are an incredible person and I know you have put your heart into this show and wanted to believe in the best in the people running it but unfortunately the producers and show runners of this show just aren’t good people. They have shown it time and time again since I have been filming by your side,” he wrote. “They lie to your face and tell you they care about you in order to manipulate you into doing the things that they need – all while holding money and episode checks over your head. I’ve seen it from the minute I walked into this show and have been very vocal about it to them in your defense, which I know is why they didn’t want me in Miami with you. They’ve created a horrible culture and working environment and I am honestly so relieved that we will now be able to move forward with our lives. I promise you the best is yet to come 🙏🏼 love you so much!”

While her exit from the series seems abrupt, Owens, who has been on Siesta Key since its debut in 2017, previously hinted that she was thinking of leaving the series, admitting to co-star Madisson Hausburg that she was considering a move to Los Angeles.

“It’s definitely something I’ve thought about a lot but also it’s hard because Max just moved here,” she said in an episode of the show. “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.”

According to Us, two months later, Owens said that she was not moving to L.A. “I’m staying in FL for myself NO ONE else,” she wrote in May in response to a fan question during an Instagram Q&A.

Why She-Hulk Doesn’t Rage Out Explained By Tatiana Maslany

Published

on

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Tatiana Maslany explains why Jessica Walters doesn’t rage out when she transforms like Bruce Banner did.

Tatiana Maslany explains why Jennifer Walters doesn’t rage out the way Bruce Banner does in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. The upcoming Disney+ series will introduce Walters to the world of the MCU, known as Bruce Banner’s cousin in the comics. Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role in the series as Banner/Smart-Hulk, and provide guidance to his cousin on the responsibility she now holds by being a Hulk, after a car accident causes her to get cross-contaminated with Banner’s blood.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will mark a drastic change in tone for the MCU, as the show is billed as a half-hour legal comedy. Walters is at the center of many legal cases involving superheroes and villains, and many characters from the expanded world of MCU are set to appear, including Abomination, Wong, and Charlie Cox as Daredevil. Meanwhile, the She-Hulk doesn’t want to use her newfound superpowers to save the world like her cousin does, but only wants to continue her quiet life as a lawyer.

In the series, Walters can take on legal cases as the She-Hulk, something she can do because her Hulk-self doesn’t rage out when fully transformed, and can speak as normally as she does when she is Jennifer Walters. In a recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Maslany explains why Jennifer Walters can control her emotions while being Hulked out and is essentially better at Hulking than Bruce Banner is. Check out her comments on the matter below:


Because women have been socially taught to repress and control their emotions in order to survive. So she’s like, ‘I’m so good at dealing with my rage. I deal with it constantly. I deal with fear constantly.’ So she’s able to just navigate it effortlessly.

In Avengers: Endgame, Bruce Banner explains that he spent years in a lab trying to repress his Hulk emotions, which allowed him to create his Smart Hulk persona and function as an individual while being fully Hulked out. But it looks like Walters won’t need to do this, because she’s able to repress her emotions as a Hulk to function as a lawyer pretty much immediately. Her origins as She-Hulk, and how she’s able to control her emotions, will likely be fully explained in the series.

However, Maslany’s comments on the matter give a small glimpse of what audiences should expect when they are introduced to the She-Hulk for the first time in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Everything audiences knew about being a Hulk from Bruce Banner’s story is likely off the table now, with the show introducing the latest addition to the Hulk family. And Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk is faster, stronger, and more agile as a Hulk than Bruce Banner has been since he took on the Smart Hulk personality in Endgame.

‘The Family Chantel’: Pedro Insists He Wants to Move Out Against Chantel’s Wishes (Exclusive)

Published

on

There’s clearly little hope of a reconciliation between Pedro and Chantel in this exclusive snippet from Monday’s episode of The Family Chantel. In the clip, Pedro’s mother, Lidia, attempts to mediate their marriage issues but it’s obvious that Pedro wants to separate and not work on his and Chantel’s relationship. 

Pedro and Chantel have been fighting all season long and during the awkward dinner with his mom, Pedro says he wants to move out, though Chantel says that would only make their situation worse. But Pedro doesn’t budge.

“I don’t care, I need my time off,” he says. “I’m tired. … No, I don’t want anymore. She does what she wants, I do what I want. I want my time apart. It can’t be that I always have to stick to her.”

Lidia notes that neither Pedro or Chantel want to compromise and ends up walking out of the dinner.

“If you want to destroy your marriage, you’re the responsible ones,” she says bluntly. “Don’t look to anyone else.”

After Lidia leaves, Chantel reiterates that she doesn’t want Pedro to move out but he says he needs to and doesn’t care what she wants.

“That’s gonna make problems worse, because we already don’t do anything together,” she notes, before getting up to leave the table as well.

Pedro replies, “I don’t care if we don’t do anything together. I need my time apart and that’s it.”

The Family Chantel airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.

Pedro filed for divorce from Chantel in May and the two both filed restraining orders against one another. In Chantel’s answer to Pedro’s divorce filing, she makes explosive allegations, citing the reason for the divorce as adultery on his behalf. She also accuses him of “cruel treatment” by including “physical domestic violence, as well as mental pain.” In the court documents, she states that “the marriage is irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”

The Ebo twins, Adamma and Adanne Ebo, have entered a multi-year overall deal with 20th Television and 20th Television Animation. Under the deal, they will develop, create and produce live-action and animated series for all platforms. Currently, the Ebo twins are developing “Supashawty Girls, Funkamatic Bangbang” with 20th Television Animation for Freeform.

The American-Nigerian filmmaking duo made their feature film debut with “Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul” starring Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown, which premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and will be released widely on Sept. 2. Adamma wrote and directed the film with Adanne producing. Their TV writing credits include Donald Glover and Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming series “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” as well as pilot spec “Supply, 40” with Gloria Sanchez and MRC. Adamma has directed an episode of Glover’s “Atlanta” at FX and three episodes of Glover and Amazon’s “Hive.” They are repped by UTA, Redefine Entertainment and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole LLP.

“20th continues to be flexible in an ever-evolving TV landscape, while supporting various creative sensibilities,” the Ebo twins said. “And as creators with a non-stop running list of ideas, we’re super hype to have studio partners who are just as committed to adding and challenging the television cultural zeitgeist in both animation and live-action.”

“We are all huge fans of Adamma and Adanne’s work and are thrilled they’ve decided to make 20th their home,” said 20th Television executive vice president Carolyn Cassidy. “Their talent and original storytelling as comedy creators and directors is undeniable and aligns perfectly with our vision to develop and bring innovative and dynamic comedic stories to all of our platform partners. It was a bonus to find out they’re also longtime Disney fans!”

“I bonded instantly with Adamma and Adanne because they are just as obsessed with animation as we are,” said 20th Television animation executive vice president Marci Proietto. “The Ebo Twins have unique voices and perspectives with countless stories to tell. I am super excited to welcome them to our 20th Animation family.”
