Even though it would be nice to believe that Teen Mom is a totally realistic depiction of what the cast members get up to on a regular basis, the truth is that there’s a lot going on behind the scenes. It’s no secret that producers can heavily influence the way that certain conversations go on air and that editors can make some scenes look entirely different from how they really are.
So it’s no wonder that the cast members have had issues with some of the executives’ decisions over the years. But now, one cast member is taking things to the extreme, and threatening to harm them.
When Amber Portwood was arrested for the first time back in 2010, MTV realized that the show just couldn’t go on. Teen Mom was pulled off the air, but that wasn’t the end of things.
The show soon returned with a new name: Teen Mom OG. But there was another change: MTV broke the fourth wall and filmed the producers, camera crew, and showed the way that MTV executives really altered the way certain scenes and life experiences went down for the cast members.
Since that shift, many of the girls haven’t been shy to speak out about the sometimes shady things the MTV executives do behind the scenes to make for good drama. In fact, Chelsea Houska called out the execs just this season for making one of her scenes look totally different.
A scene aired that showed Chelsea and her mother discussing Chelsea’s decision to move away. Chelsea’s mother seems upset, and throughout the scene, Chelsea never comforts her and comes off as annoyed and distant.
“Oh snap. I just cried with [Chelsea’s mom],” wrote a fan on Twitter after the episode aired. “I would be so devastated if my baby moved away.”
Chelsea tweeted back, “I totally understood where she was coming from. But it’s the town I grew up in! AND I’m disappointed they left out a whole entire part of our convo. We hugged it out, and I reassured her over and over it was all going to be just fine.”
But another Teen Mom star’s beef with executives is going even farther as he threatens harm upon them.
Fans haven’t seen much of Amber’s boyfriend Andrew Glennon’s behavior on Teen Mom OG. That’s because his relationship with Amber was so short! Now that it looks like Amber might not return for the next season after her domestic assault charges, we may not see any more of either of them next season either.
Apparently, Andrew took to Instagram on New Year’s Eve for a night of revelry… and posting potentially drunk diatribes to his story. And he threatened to harm the execs by leaking their social security numbers!
