MTV’s reality TV show Siesta Key has been through all the drama, including a best-fenemies bond between Kelsey Owens and Juliette Porter. According to Page Six, the show saw a feud between the two after Owens made a comment about Porter’s then-boyfriend. Porter had had enough and she slapped Owens in the face, leaving her lip bloodied. Although the ladies later apologized to each other, Porter did mention that bad blood still exists.
“There’s not really much of a friendship now,” she told Hollywood Life in March. “I see her and we say hello… But it’s always awkward when I see her. I literally never feel good. There is always tension. I feel like every time I’m with her she just looks miserable.”
In July, Owens announced that she was heading to Miami to join forces with the women of Screen Rant. Porter did not attend the meeting. Back then, the producers of “Siesta Key” were already telling Owens that they wouldn’t need her on the show until later in Season 5, but little did she know that this would ultimately lead to an exit.

“[I] was informed that I will be cut to Siesta Key without warning,” Owens said in a lengthy statement on Instagram. After all the love and dedication she had for the show, at the end of her caption she thanked her fans and her co- Stars for the experience.
Owens’ “Siesta Key” co-stars reached out to her via the comments section with only words of love and encouragement, via E!

I love you forever.” Both co-star Madisson Hausburg and boyfriend Max Strong mentioned that the heart she put into the show won’t go unnoticed, despite the way she was let go. We wish Owens happiness and success in her new life.
