The conflict between Holly J. Sinclair and Mia Jones began before Season 7 of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Conflict History


Mia and Holly J. were both former Lakehurst Secondary School students and Holly J. had a dislike of Mia and would usually make rude comments about her about her being a single teen mother. In the second semester of their Sophomore year, Holly J. seemed to get catty with Mia since they both each had a crush on Sav Bhandari and matters were made worse since they had to share a locker, although Mia evicted her when having enough of her bullying. In their Junior year, they still have a slight rivalry, but seem to have it maintained on a frenemy level.

When Mia began her modeling career, Holly J. got jealous and eventually did give her share of congratulating her. When they were both Power Squad, they were teammates and eventually became friends. However, when Holly J. goes broke and becomes jealous of Mia's growing success as a model, she reveals on television about how Mia got her modeling job by performing sexual favors, and they revert back to being rivals.
