“I feel like everyone already kinda had their places and it was either, ‘You’re going to be on the A-team or the B-team?'” she added. “It was just tricky.”

“It was hard for us because I felt like when I came on the show, just being so honest, it was a very divided set,” Jana said to Bethany, who also agreed.

The mother-of-two went on to say that the creator of OTH, Mark Schwahn, had a lot to do with the tension. In 2017, Mark, 53, was accused of sexual harassment and physical/emotional manipulation by many female cast and crew members on the show.

“I think our creator kinda created that environment, as well,” Jana said. “I don’t know what he’s doing now but that was probably the hardest part about being on the show.”
