Teen Mom Ashley Jones accused of shading MTV cast as she only thanks Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer for their 'support'

TEEN Mom's newest recruit Ashley Jones has been accused of throwing shade at her MTV co-stars before the series has even aired.

The newbie only thanked Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer for their "support" after backlash about being brought onto the show.

Ashley faced fierce criticism from some fans who claimed she shouldn't have been cast because of her past "dysfunctional" behavior.

Now she's revealed she's already formed close bonds with two of her co-stars who have helped her through the sticky patch.

"I wanted to thank everyone for all the positive comments I have received regarding my move to TM2," Ashley wrote on Instagram.

"I also want to specifially thank Kailyn and Leah for being so supportive and kind from the very beginning. I'm honoured to be a part."

Earlier this month, Ashley shared the exciting news that she would be replacing Chelsea Houska on Teen Mom 2 for the next season.

The announcement came as an emotional scene aired showing Ashley's boyfriend and baby daddy, Bariki Smith, get down on one knee and propose to the mother of his child.

They'll now share their journey together with their three-year-old daughter Holly on-screen.

Ashley was forced to hit back at critics as she defended her past behaviour.

Promising she's changed, Ashley, 24, stood up for herself in the comments section on Instagram, writing: "Damn I was childish."

She added in a following comment: "Y'all so judgmental. Try being 19-23 learning how to be a mom and a woman and blend a family on national tv. I think I've grown and not to mention I've accomplished every goal I've set."

She will star on Teen Mom 2 alongside ex-cast mate Jade Cline, as well Briana DeJesus and her new friends Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer.
