Again with the selective nature of “it’s scripted”
Last year Holly was acting like a total nightmare and most reasonable people within the fandom were quick to remind everyone that it’s scripted, that Nia and Kendall’s music careers were all arranged by the producers, that Holly was asked to amp up the drama.
This year they’re clearly aiming to make Jill the “Holly” and people are freaking out about what an awful person she is and, what’s worse, taking it out on Kendall.
Yes, Jill has gone further in what she does to start drama but again we can’t just say that one tiny conflict comes from reality while others are contrived.
I do believe that Brynn’s reaction to Jill’s anger was real but I also don’t doubt that there have probably been a lot of apologies and long talks when the cameras aren’t running — some cast members have said (more so in the past) that when the cameras are off they all talk to the girls about what’s real and what isn’t, and they all clear the air. So while I feel really bad for Brynn, I also don’t doubt that behind the scenes, things were made right.
Because all of the kids have said numerous times that they adore Jill and she acts like one of the kids around them, that she loves to make them laugh. But Jill has clearly been 100% okay with playing a character from day one. She’s played along with a lot of stuff that we knew wasn’t true.
