Nathan and Ashley have teamed up against MTV!
Nathan Griffith has had his fair share of screentime on Teen Mom 2. We’ve seen his relationship with Jenelle from its start as a whirlwind romance to its end in screaming matches and custody battles. His time on the show seems to be far from over as he continues to be a factor in Jenelle’s life when it comes to her son, Kaiser. But apparently enough just wasn’t quite enough: last night, MTV came out with Nathan’s own special, called Being Nathan.
Of course, this didn’t come and go without stirring up some major drama in the Teen Mom fanbase. In fact, before the show even aired, Nathan and his girlfriend were already on Twitter airing grievances about the special!
Was Being Nathan the most controversial Teen Mom specials? Well, judging from the drama it stirred up, it just may have been!
It’s not uncommon for the stars of Teen Mom to call out MTV for the way they’ve been represented. Often they think that viewers are misled about how situations really unfolded, or that their words were taken out of context. So it’s no surprise that one of the most vocal members of the cast, Nathan Griffith, took to voice his opinions about MTV when it came to his special, Being Nathan. Unlike most of his co-stars, though, Nathan was letting fans know his beef on Twitter before the special even aired!
The night of the episode, he tweeted, “Please ask all the questions tonight at 9 tonight! Not only did @mtv messed with chronological order… @MTV took out very important sentences that changed the dynamics of every single conversations.” So what does Nathan REALLY think about Being Nathan? He made that perfectly clear when he wrote: “Can’t wait for the #worseshowever.”
Nathan’s not the only one who had a Twitter rant or two about the show. Nathan’s girlfriend, Ashley Landhart, also had some complaints to air. She wrote, “Can’t wait to see where @mtv puts me into Nate’s special just for extra drama, even though I wasn’t even around for the filming of it.”
She continued, “I’m sure @mtv added in footage recently shot just for dramatic effect. Nathan is nothing but a ‘character’ for you.” She even said that she didn’t want to be part of any filming, saying, “& u wonder why I refuse to film… I’m not letting u make me a character like u did nate. I don’t need my life ruined by 15 seconds of fame.”
“If Only You Knew the Truth”
Considering all of that was tweeted before the show aired, it should go without saying that it was a pretty controversial episode. It wasn’t long before Ashley took to Twitter again to deny that the domestic violence charges against Nathan’s ex, Jessica, that were brought up in the case.
A fan tweeted her, asking, “How [do] you feel [about] this domestic violence scene? Sure [don’t] seem like she’s lying.” Ashley replied, “I can’t comment on that for legal reasons… It’s lies, that’s all I can say.”
The fan continued, “I get you wanna protect him cause you love him, but it [doesn’t] seem like she’s lying. But the past is the past but abuse is [never] okay. And we’ve all seen his temper no offense.”
Ashley replied, “When someone is pushed as far as he is anyone would snap…”
“I knew you were [gonna] say that I’m not starting with you all. Wish [you] the best but to me [it] seemed like Jessica was sincere & truly scared,” the fan replied.
“I can’t comment on the truth as of now. If you only knew the truth,” was Ashley’s last word on the issue.
