Some questions have been answered!
Being in the Teen Mom fanbase means having to hear numerous sides to every story. It can be interesting to know all of the cast members’ current life events and updates, and then see them all air on the television show months later in a completely different way. After all, the truth in storylines like Kailyn’s pregnancy or Amber and Matt’s breakup was hard to find until the episode aired and cleared things up.
One of the most confusing recent events in the fanbase still leaves a host of questions for fans. In September, Farrah announced shocking news that she had been fired from MTV… but since then, the story as to why has been changing numerous times down the road.
Now, everything is getting cleared up as to why Farrah’s job was in jeopardy, as footage of the moment she went head-to-head with executive producer Morgan J. Freeman, and why he chose to fire her has now been released.
Farrah Abraham’s job stability with MTV has been a point of confusion among many fans of Teen Mom, and there’s a good reason why. From the moment the story was announced, Farrah and MTV were flip-flopping on the truth seemingly every day. Soon after Farrah announced she was fired, she revealed that she was not fired after all. However, it didn’t stop her from going off on violent tirades about the network.
At first, it seemed that the reason Farrah was being “let go” was due to her activity in the adult entertainment industry. However, this confused many fans, considering that Farrah has been doing that type of work for years, with no public complaints from MTV. This new clip from an upcoming episode of Teen Mom OG paints a very different picture.
It’s no secret that Farrah can be difficult to get along with. She’s so difficult, in fact, that she refuses to ever share a stage with her Teen Mom co-stars during reunion specials because of their constant feuding. She’s gotten into explosive fights with the producers and have even insisted they rent a port-a-potty while filming since she has banned them from using her restrooms. But could Farrah’s diva tendencies be what really got her fired from MTV?
“I know I don’t like you, and I know I don’t even want to f**king look at you,” Farrah blasts a producer during this sneak peek of the next episode of Teen Mom OG as she sits in a car. “F**k you and your excuses.”
“Please tell me how I’m getting in your way so I can help,” the producer asks, but Farrah rolls up the window and says “You already know.”
After just one example of the dozens of times Farrah has gotten into fights with her producers, the scene cuts to a tense conversation between Farrah and executive producer Morgan J. Freeman.
“I think we want to look at just how people are treated,” Morgan tells Farrah. “Do you feel like you respect the people that are around you that are trying to make the show and spend all this time?”
“I respect a lot of people who respect me,” Farrah says.
“Right,” Morgan shoots back, “but you do have very little empathy or compassion for other people.” He goes on, “There has to be respect for our crews and for the producers… and the amount of work that goes into keeping you happy with crew has bubbled up to a point that we have to figure out if we move forward.”
Farrah seems unsympathetic. “If that’s overwhelming for you, I’m sure there’s a better way of handling it,” she says, sounding sarcastic.
“Out of nine moms, you’re the only one that’s the problem,” Morgan says.
“I’m not difficult!” Farrah insists. “I am so understanding, I work my a** off just like everyone.” That’s where the clip ends.
Although this clip reveals one of the motivating factors for Farrah being fired, it still opens up even more questions that fans discussed on Reddit.
“It is interesting that there was no mention of her [adult] career whatsoever in the clip,” user adarunti wrote. “That was the main complaint she had during her social media flip-out, right? That they targeted her for her [adult] career? Sounds like it was more about being rude and uncooperative during filming.”
BellaMizer added on, “It’s more of a 50/50 issue. It might be the fact that she’s taking the ultimatum as a huge joke and they think it’s serious.” Then, there were users like healthyygirl who just want to know: “Some[one] please explain… was Farrah actually fired or no?”
It seems that no one is quite sure where Farrah stands with regards to MTV.
