Clearly, Teen Mom 2 producers don't subscribe to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory.
Despite the fact that the show remains wildly successful, they're forever tinkering with the cast in an effort to boost ratings.
The latest change is one that was likely made out of necessity, but might serve to outrage one of their most popular stars.
Lauren Comeau will be joining the cast for the show's upcoming season, and Kailyn Lowry might be less than thrilled with being forced to share screen time with her ex-husband's fiancee.
Take a look:
1. Lauren and Javi
Lauren just welcomed her first child, and she and Javi are engaged to be married.
2. Taking Over
Needless to say, Lauren is a big part of Javi's life these days.
3. A Lot on Her Plate
Despite all of that, throughout Lauren's pregnancy, she was reportedly not planning to appear on camera on the upcoming season of TM2.
4. A Matter of Logistics
So it would have been tough for Javi to film without having Lauren on camera.
5. Flimsy Pretext
Or at least that's the reason Javi and Lauren have given for her sudden decision to join the cast.
6. Solid Justification
â€œIt was pretty much impossible for [Javi] to do any filming without me saying yes,â€� Lauren told Radar Online.
