They're not cool with the change!
Being the new girl on the block can be difficult for anyone. But having to face off with three of MTV’s biggest stars is an entirely different ballgame. Now that Farrah Abraham has officially stopped filming with MTV, the network is looking to replace her with someone new. After all, it would be strange if Teen Mom OG had only three girls while Teen Mom 2 has five! But the newest addition to the Teen Mom OG has a long road ahead of her.
Farrah’s replacement won’t only have to win over the millions of fans who tune in to Teen Mom every week. She’ll also have to win over her three established co-stars! It won’t be an easy task for MTV’s new pick, and some of the cast members are already speaking out about how her addition could ruin the show!
New Girl on the Block
Now that Farrah Abraham is off the show, it was only a matter of time before MTV found someone new. Even though MTV hasn’t officially confirmed it, there are numerous reports that Farrah’s replacement will be the one and only Mackenzie Mckee. But apparently not everyone is so happy about that, including Farrah herself. She kept it together in an interview with Us Weekly, but many fans think she’s more torn up than she’s letting on.
“I wish them all the best with the show. I’m out on a high note. This is the longest season in history and I’m their biggest star,” Farrah told Us.“I can do my own show, but I don’t want to focus on reality TV. I’m focusing on scripted opportunities but will always enjoy a good reality TV project.”
She then dissed her former castmates, saying, “I don’t know what the show is doing. You could take all the girls on all the series, but none can bring or do as much as I do for the series.”
Farrah isn’t the only one who’s not excited about the replacement. Catelynn Lowell has voiced her thoughts on the update as well.
“Why are new people being brought in, in the first place. It doesn’t make any sense,” wrote Twitter user @Beth_C_Ramirez. “You ruin the dynamic of the show! You think you would’ve learned that with the others!”
Catelynn agreed with the fan, writing, “They can’t bring someone new to #TeenMomOG or it wouldn’t be OG (original girls).”
But Mackenzie isn’t only taking it — she’s serving it up too! She recently lashed out against Farrah herself!
“I truly hope Farrah didn’t inspire anyone to have sex with strangers on camera and disrespect their body in such a way because she was a role model and young girls look up to [the cast],” Mackenzie dished to HollywoodLife.com.
Even so, Mackenzie has some sympathy for Farrah’s choices. “I don’t know Farrah on a personal level,” she admitted. “I don’t know the things she has been through and why she went the route she did.”
