Guess who's back!
Teen Mom has been running for nearly a decade now, gaining viewership and success as time goes on. But recently there has been a major shakeup: for the first time in its history, the show lost a primary cast member.
After a battle over her career in the adult entertainment industries as well as her treatment of production staff and crew, Farrah Abraham was fired by MTV. The Teen Mom OG cast dropped from four girls to three as Farrah pulled out in the middle of the season.
Reactions to this decision have been mixed — Farrah isn’t exactly the most popular mom, but many enjoy seeing the drama that she brings to the show. Some even began to worry that Teen Mom ratings would plummet after Farrah was gone, leading the show to be cancelled!
Now things are being turned on their head again: Farrah is reuniting with the world of Teen Mom. Are we about to see yet another major change in the show?
Farrah Abraham’s departure from the Teen Mom cast is still a confusing point for many viewers. Although at first she claimed MTV had fired her, the episode in which the fight took place told a different story. It appeared that after executive producer Morgan J. Freeman spoke with Farrah about her behavior, she was the one who decided to leave the show! Now it looks like she’s had enough distance and is returning to be part of the Teen Mom OG cast… temporarily.
MTV revealed that Farrah is indeed returning to their sets in a preview for the Teen Mom OG reunion. As she did for years, Farrah appears to be explaining her side of things to host Dr. Drew.
“I even had feelings about coming to sit with you today, Dr. Drew,” Farrah revealed in a sneak peek. She clearly still has some reservations about MTV in general, a company which she accused of harassment and slut shaming. In fact, she even attempted to sue the company for $5 million!
Although Farrah ultimately decided to go through with her appearance, she made it perfectly clear it wasn’t at the top of her list. In an interview with TMZ, Farrah blasted the “spineless” network.
Farrah was asked how she felt about MTV framing her departure as her own decision to quit. “I think that is the most unprofessional thing to say,” she said. “[They made] out that I quit when I still showed up for voiceovers and other things for work, and they’re still asking me to do a piece for the reunion. I don’t quit. I’m pretty easy going!”
She went on to say, “I got a lot that I deal with everyday, and I like good people to work with me. They weren’t the most trustworthy and honest people to work with…. If I’m hard to work with, they’re spineless!”
But apparently she was willing to work with the “spineless” network as part of the reunion. Could Farrah’s reintroduction to the formal cast be in the cards?
