Talk about divas!
We all know that the Teen Moms can be… well, dramatic, to say the least. Apparently, though, they’re not the only divas on the set of Teen Mom. The dads can also be extremely high maintenance.
There are plenty of hated “Teen Dads” on MTV. There’s drug addicted Ryan Edwards and Adam Lind, those prone to violence like Nathan Griffin, and even the totally absent options like Jenelle’s first baby daddy, Andrew Lewis. Then again, there are some fan favorites, as well. Maybe you like Cole DeBoer, who recently tied the knot with Chelsea Houska, or Javi Marroquin, despite his incessant fighting with his ex, Kailyn.
At the end of the day, though, though, even the favorite baby daddies can sometimes push the limits. If anyone had doubts about that, a recent incident proves it.
The Teen Mom cast were all reunited during the filming of the reunion special. The drama that unfolded during filming is still continuing to come out — specifically surrounding Jenelle’s fight with Nathan and his new girlfriend Ashley. Now it looks like there’s more evidence of how dramatic the dads can be as their myriad of filming demands have come out!
When the Dads of Teen Mom first started dating the cast members, they were just average guys. However, over the years their stars, income, and popularity have shot up, and it seems to be having an effect on their expectations. Now, it seems like they’re not happy with what MTV has to offer.
When the network flew the Dads out for reunion filming, several of them demanded that MTV dished out for first class tickets to Los Angeles, according to The Ashley. One even demanded that they pay for a first class ticket for his girlfriend who barely even appears on the show!
The producers were not having it. The Ashley’s source revealed that the producers shut down the request. “The show pays for the guys to come to the reunion, and will pay for their significant other or guest to come as well. But the network said no way would they pay for first class for the guys, who are just supporting characters on the show,” they said.
MTV paid for the Jenelle, Leah, Chelsea, Kailyn, and Briana to fly first class, as well as a guest and their children, but it was one of the first times MTV agreed to upgrade the core cast! “That’s a relatively new things MTV is doing for the girls,” the source said. “They never flew them first class before, always coach or business.” They also revealed that this was largely so that the girls didn’t get bombarded by fans while traveling.
“The guys get a coach ticket, though, and that probably won’t change,” the source spilled. “They are reminded that they are free to come out-of-pocket and upgrade their coach ticket if they’d like.”
Of course, this in Teen Mom, so the drama didn’t end there. Some of the more demanding dads claimed that if MTV wouldn’t pay for a first class ticket, they wouldn’t come!
Fans on Reddit were less than impressed with the dads’ demands. User DictaSupreme wrote:
“My favorite part is someone said they demand a first class ticket or they won’t go to the reunion and MTV responded with basically ‘ok…see you never then. Don’t come.’ I need to know which of the irrelevant dads (because they’ve all been pretty irrelevant this season) think they’re so important that MTV will give in to their demands to make sure they’re at the reunion. Boys, bye. You aren’t the stars!”
Fans theorized about who made the demands, and most seemed to think it was Nathan, Javi, and/or Jeremy. But user HulksBlackSoul thought it was pretty sad for the exes to even fly out in the first place. They wrote:
”If they’re ‘just supporting cast members’ why even go? I feel like the older they all get the less they will think this is something really cool. Dr. Drew throws softballs to all the mom’s while often grilling the dads in the next breath. I just wouldn’t think it would be worth my time if I was ‘just a dad.’”
