Right away Farrahdenied being fired, however, today she said that she feels MTV made a mistake when they fired her. It’s like Farrah lives in one of those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books… Turn to page 32 if your delusional self believes you weren’t fired. Turn to page 54 if you admit you were fired.
MTV: “Slednecks is a weekly half-hour comedic docu-series following a group of ‘outdoor tough’ friends living in the rural town of Wasilla, Alaska. With mountains and rivers as their playground, these close friends make the most of what they have while always having a blast doing it. Polar Bear plunges, airboating on ice, glacier parties, river wakeboarding, and human catapulting are just some of the adventures these ‘Sled-necks’ get into, while also navigating dramatic friendships and relationships in the prime of their lives.”
Slednecks premieres October 30 on MTV. Check out the trailer below.
But part of me is beginning to wonder if Farrah told MTV that she didn’t want to participate because filming Teen Mom would require – GASP! – spending time with her child. If you will recall, Sophia is living her own life, and Farrah is busy promoting her sex toys, opening a restaurant, pretending to write fiction books, gearing up for her first movie role, and working as a stripper. Where would she find the time to play mom for the cameras?
Speaking to Starcasm, Farrah said she can't bear to follow her former co-stars, "I wish them all the best – but it does make me very sad to still see them make poor choices." Seriously? Because a DUI and a PORN are great choices?!?
"I can't even tell you – if I had to go through all the same struggles again that I had to deal with the first time with Sophia – and I did not like that and I knew better – it would crush me," added Farrah. Um, what? Can I buy a vowel? "So I'm very sad the other Teen Moms don't take that as seriously as they should."
If you'll recall, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood have refused to move forward with Teen Mom with Farrah in tow. They allegedly do not want their kids to share airtime with a porn star hawking sex toys. I do NOT blame them – but there is no show withoutFarrah. IMO. Farrah's special brand of narcissistic crazy makes great TV.
According to Us, MTV exes "willingly cut" Farrah out of the negotiations due to her co-stars' concerns. "MTV agreed," claimed an inside source. "They feel she set a bad example and doesn't represent the network well."
If you're a 16 and Pregnant fanatic, you'll probably remember the crazy story of Ashley Salazar.
Just to recap: Ashley got pregnant the first time she slept with baby daddy Justin Long which threatened to derail her big big plans to move to NYC for college. Ultimately she decided, with the support of her mother, to give her daughter Callie up for adoption.
Callie was adopted by Ashley's aunt and uncle. After the adoption, Ashley changed her mind and took Callie back for a month before realizing she wasn't ready to give up her dreams and returned Callie to her aunt and uncle. She has maintained a close relationship with her daughter.
So it appears that MTV is going to continue its grand plan to shed light on the epic social problem of teen pregnancies by continuing to glorify pregnant teens, giving them a hefty check, and making them pseudo-celebrities. It's been working thus far. I mean, just look at how mature Farrah Abraham is thanks to the network's influence! Of course, actual intelligent people who are touted with research on such subjects are out to prove me wrong.
According to MTV's Remote Control, economists from Wellesley College and the University of Maryland have determined that 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom have led to a reduction in teen pregnancy by 5.7 percent, or about 20,000 births every year since the first show premiered in 2009. If you want to get super technical, that's one less birth by a teen every half hour. I guess that would explain why the network has announced another season which will follow twelve new pregnant teens.
