Time for Teen Mom OG drama to kick into high gear again. Thank God! Teen Mom 2 is wild, but no one does co-star squabbles like the OGs. With the next season of OG less than two weeks away, the girls are slowly creeping their way back into the public eye, which means interviews, ramped up social media efforts, and shade flying everywhere.
Amber Portwood and Catelynn Baltierra kicked it all off by talking to People in a new set of interviews about their recent scandals. The girls got really, really real about their co-star Farrah Abraham. Then, Farrah’s sometimes-boyfriend Simon Saran responded, because of course he did!
Gotta love OG season.
Let’s dive in!
‘Teen Mom’ Perks
Loving Teen Mom is fun because it’s never really off the air. Sure, there are a few weeks between the end of an OG season and the beginning of TM2, but those weeks are usually filled with MTV’s PR machine kicking into high gear, hyping people up for the new season. It’s honestly a good (or, maybe, all-consuming) fandom to be a part of … for that reason.
Now, we’re in that glorious time, and the OG girls are already delivering.
Spilling It All…
Amber Portwood and Catelynn Baltierra chatted with People earlier this week and held nothing back when talking about their controversial co-star, Farrah Abraham. Of course, Amber and Farrah have spent the past six months in an all-out war after their explosive fight at TMOG’s last reunion special.
Despite the fact that it appeared that Portwood was responsible for the escalation of the altercation into physical violence rather than just harsh words (I say “appeared,” because who knows with editing?), the other Teen Moms have all taken her side.
Since the reunion smack-down, the rest of the OGs (Amber, Catelynn, and Maci Bookout) have been on vacation together, planned (then cancelled) the Teen Mom Cruise without Farrah, have planned weddings to which Abraham may or may not be invited (more on that later), and now, given interviews to let fans know how they really (really, really) feel about Farrah.
