Tea Chapple, the mother of Teen Mom star Ashley Jones, has recently unveiled a remarkable transformation, shedding a staggering 138 pounds.
She took to her Instagram story to share a striking bikini snapshot, showcasing her new physique and updating her followers on her journey towards weight loss.
Alongside the current snapshot, Tea posted a “before” picture, emphasizing the significant contrast in her appearance since embarking on her weight loss journey.
From Covering Up to Flaunting Confidence
In the initial image, Tea, also known as Tasheilia Chapple, was seen donning a one-piece swimsuit adorned with multicolored stripes, concealing herself with a lengthy cover-up cardigan.
In stark contrast, her “after” photo featured Tea confidently sporting a floral-print bikini, proudly displaying her slimmer frame.
The caption accompanying the image read: “Total weight loss 138 pounds,” followed by the statement: “current weight 147.”
Ashley Jones’ Relationship Status Update
Simultaneously, Tea’s daughter, Ashley, made an announcement on the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), informing her audience that she is now single.
Ashley had been in an on-again-off-again relationship with her Teen Mom co-star, Bar Smith.
Just last month, she took to the platform to declare the end of their relationship and hinted at possible infidelity on Bar’s part.
She candidly expressed her emotions, stating that she had given her all to Bar, who, in her words, had treated her poorly.
In a subsequent tweet, Ashley clarified her single status and hinted at potential suitors, saying, “So when you see me doing me please know I am single, and there has BEEN a line of handsome young men waiting…”
