Kailyn, 30, revealed how she feels about stepping away from the show and that her ex-co-star Chelsea Houska – who left the series in November 2020 – convinced her to make the move.
During Friday’s installment of her Barely Famous podcast, the young mom responded to a fan’s question, asking if she misses Teen Mom.
“I’m so thankful for the opportunity. I think it was a really unique experience that a lot of people don’t have, and so I’m very thankful, but I also don’t necessarily miss it, no,” Kailyn honestly replied.
The MTV alum further explained that fellow Teen Mom 2 alum Chelsea, 30, convinced her to leave.

“What’s crazy is that I was talking to Chelsea [Houska] for probably two years since she had the courage to leave and kind of decide that it was time for her to move on, and I also felt the same way, but I was so scared,” she admitted.
“I was very scared because that’s all I’ve known since I was 16 years old. So, I stopped filming for several months, and then I went back. I was scared financially…”
Kailyn explained that she has no bad blood between the network, despite how her exit might’ve been portrayed on TV.
“To answer the question: Do I miss it? No. But not in a way that is – I’m not like angry about it, but I don’t necessarily miss it if that makes sense.”

She continued: “I have absolutely no hard feelings despite how it looks like it ended on the show. It didn’t actually end that way, and they’ve [MTV producers] called me several times after to see if I wanted to participate in other things.
“I don’t miss it, but I don’t mean that in a rude way at all.”
NO MORE MTV
Kailyn told Perez Hilton during an appearance on her podcast earlier this year about her plans to say farewell to the franchise.
She said: “Teen Mom, you know the ratings are really dropping for us…
“I feel like there does come a time where it’s run its course, and I think that goes for every reality show.”
She also revealed that she didn’t feel she was offered enough money to film further episodes, which was “part of” her reason for leaving.
Kailyn told Perez that the earnings she makes from her three podcasts combined are greater than her salary as a Teen Mom star.
The confirmation from the Pennsylvania native comes amid months of speculation that she was walking away from the franchise.
During a previous episode of Teen Mom 2, viewers were met with the on-screen message that Kailyn “informed production that she will no longer be filming.”
The mom of four has said that she is focusing on her other business ventures and raising her sons: Isaac, 12; Lincoln, eight; Lux, four; and Creed, one.
She is also looking to step out on her own after teasing her fans on social media about a potential spin-off with the working title, “Kail and the Chaos.”
Chelsea has also been focusing on her other passions since bowing out of the series.
The TV personality left Teen Mom 2 in 2020 to protect her family’s “privacy,” especially her 12-year-old daughter Aubree.
An insider told The Ashley: “Chelsea was becoming more and more concerned about Aubree being on-camera, now that she’s older.
“She always knew she would leave the show once Aubree reached a certain age. She didn’t want her to go through puberty on-camera and be subjected to hurtful and sometimes creepy comments from viewers.”
The source claimed Chelsea “didn’t like that her segments were becoming more and more about Aubree’s personal life and her relationship with Adam’s family.”
Chelsea shares the preteen with ex Adam Lind while she also has son Walker, five, and daughters Layne, three, and Walker, one, with her husband Cole Deboer, 34.
She and Cole have since landed a new HGTV series titled Farmhouse Fabulous.
