All Faked For Views!
Even though many viewers legitimately love to watch the cast members learn and grow, at the end of the day, there’s one reason why Teen Mom is so popular: the drama. If the show simply featured nine twenty-something mothers who were happy, healthy, and got along with their families all the time, it isn’t likely that many people would tune in. Drama certainly pays, but just how far would MTV go to get those views?
Through the years, there have been numerous rumors about parts of Teen Mom being fake or staged, but could one of the most iconic moments the show has ever seen be entirely faked? According to Farrah Abraham, it was.
Farrah and Amber made headlines far and wide when they got into a violent fight during a reunion special. After Farrah called Matt Baier a pedophile, Amber stormed onto the stage and tried to punch Farrah in the face. The altercation only ended when security got involved!
Now, Farrah is making a serious accusation by claiming that the notorious fight was completely staged. She says that MTV faked the interaction just to boost viewership!
Farrah Abraham is not on good terms with MTV right now. After the network “fake fired” the mother-of-one for her work in the adult entertainment industry, she put the network executives on blast, calling each of them out in turn. Apparently she’s far from finished with them!
Now, she’s accusing MTV of fabricating the iconic fight between Farrah and Amber — which you can watch in its entirety below (video contains explicit content).
This fight is pretty alarming on the surface level, but what may be more shocking is what was going on behind the scenes. According to Farrah, none of it was genuine. “Amber was provoked by production to run on stage and instigate a fight with me,” Farrah claimed in an interview with Radar Online.
She went on to say that the fight was so premeditated that MTV set up the circumstances beforehand. “They shut off all TVs on set and tried to remove all families and children beforehand,” she claimed. “They instigated bad criminal behavior on set.”
She also claimed that MTV forced fights between herself and her parents. “I had producers always ask me questions and then go run and tell my parents,” she said. “They make things manipulated, not authentic and due to this I couldn’t even talk to Sophia’s father before he passed away.”
Needless to say, Farrah is livid with MTV for this manipulation. She told Radar:
“Production should never cross boundaries and ruin the natural family interactions as the ‘Teen Mom’ associated production companies and MTV allowed repeatedly. It becomes an issue and struggle between what’s real and manipulated by production rather than focus on the real lives and stories.”
Farrah definitely has a vendetta against MTV, but she’s not the only one who’s accused the network of faking, altering, and manipulating storylines. From prompting their children to cry to editing together scenes, many of the girls have their own stories of how MTV has faked the show.
