Teen Mom-turned-porn star and stripper, Farrah Abraham, will be on the new spinoff series Teen Mom OG.
The other Teen Mom stars – Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood initially refused to participate if Farrah returned to the series.
Abraham stated, “There’s going to be lots of excitement from the Teen Mom fans and MTV’s fan base as well, so I’m excited to be back.”
Farrah hit back at reports in August that she wasn’t wanted on the show by her co-stars, by throwing shade at her co-stars.
She said, “Some of the moms on the show still need that. Fortunately for me, I have other ways of making money. I can’t keep doing the same things year after year.”
That same month, MTV confirmed the new season would feature Maci, Catelynn, and Amber, but it appears there was a change of heart.
Farrah said, “I think they were more or less saying that there was more to my story that they really felt was missing from the Teen Mom show, and I totally agree with them. I understand their point of view, and it was a funny situation to be in.”
Teen Mom creator Lauren Dolgen confirmed that by saying, “It was obvious to me that we needed the fourth story. There is such a balance of having four stories. There is more of [Farrah’s] story to tell. The girls missed opportunities because they were young mothers and now they have new challenges and new opportunities, but it’s just been an important part of the story telling.”
Lauren explained the tension of Farrah’s return, saying, “[The other girls] know that she’s coming back, and it did create a little bit of controversy that will play out in the series.”
Farrah added she won’t be changing her life just because she’s back on the show.
“I’m not doing anything differently that I would not do when the cameras are there or not there,” Farrah said. “I mean, I don’t know if it really benefits me to be on TV because I was most successful in my career when I was away from Teen Mom. So if it benefits me then that’s randomly benefitting. I’m more or less looking at it to benefit Sophia.”
We believe MTV is bringing her back because she is the cast member people love to hate.
