Earlier this week, Briana, 27, suggested that Kailyn could be "racist" and never invited her on her podcast because she "isn't white".
The MTV star pointed out that Kailyn, 29, wanted Jenelle to appear on her show despite their falling out – but never Briana.
Jenelle, 29, gave her take on things in a video titled: "Wanted to say this for a while now."
She claimed her old Teen Mom producer stayed in touch with her after she was fired in 2019 following her husband David Eason's fatal shooting of her dog Nugget.
Jenelle said the producer encouraged her to go on Kailyn's podcast to "squash" their feud.
She said: "I feel like Kail uses who she wants to for popularity and I wasn't up for that so…
"I don't know what's going on between her and Briana. I don't know why Kail doesn't like her still. It's weird."
The mother-of-three added that she doesn't believe Kailyn snubbing Briana from her podcast was racially-motivated.
She said: "I don't think it's about Briana's race and I definitely don't think it's because I was white that Kail wanted to make up with me.
"It's because she wanted ratings. In the past I feel like Kail has always used me.
"She has asked me to come to events that I was at and asked me to get her in. It's always been about using people with her and I don't know if she'll ever change but hopefully she will."
Briana – who is of Puerto Rican descent – hit out at Kailyn on Wednesday, claiming she'd never been asked on her podcast because she's "non-Caucasian".
"While I really hope this isn't the case, it's not lost on me that she was willing to talk to Jenelle – who is white – yet won't move on with me when, up until recently, I was the only non-Caucasian cast member," she told Celeb Buzz.
"There have been rumblings and reports regarding past racist tweets Kailyn interacted with, and again, while I'm hoping the color of my skin isn't a factor here it's certainly not lost on me that this point exists."
Earlier this year, Reddit users uncovered past controversial posts that Kailyn had liked on Twitter.
One tweet that she liked from 2016 read: "I just want white girls to date me for a month out of guilt for Black History Month #slavereparations."
She also posted saying, "I just want to say that every life matters" before calling a critic "ignorant" when they claimed she was behaving like a "privileged white girl".
Last year, Briana called Kailyn racist again, saying: “In the current state of things being brought to light regarding racism, it would be wrong of me to not bring up Kailyn Lowry’s racist behavior.
"I do not condone her labeling Hispanics as thuggish."
Kailyn once scolded ex Jo Rivera regarding their son Issac, saying, "I think you forget about the fact that he’s half white and he’s half Hispanic."
"I feel like you dress him in the stereotypical way and I don’t like it… you dress him like a thug.”
Briana continued: "In the same vein, she called my family ratchet. I do not for one second believe that was just a random dig.”
She was referring to the time Kailyn called her and her family "ratchet" during the reunion show.
Kailyn said earlier this year that she has been "canceled" many times over her past comments – which she admitted were "ignorant" and said she's "willing to apologize and learn from".
