Even though Farrah Abraham is no longer a part of Teen Mom, the OG cast member still has a lot of opinions on the show- specifically the new additions to the cast: Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd. To say she is not a fan of the casting decision would be putting it mildly.
Farrah said, “I protect my child. I raised her very well since the time she’s been born on TV. I never exploit my child and I think that’s why everyone has seen me kind of leave Teen Mom.” She later said, “All of her other friends and kids in her same age group, they’re all doing the challenges and all these fun apps. Also my daughter is like an influencer on some of these apps, so if it’s all safe and it’s all fun, I really don’t see the need of someone attacking me.” Farrah boasted, “The press just came out: me leaving Teen Mom, then the ratings just went down. I know what I’m doing and to value my daughter’s safety.”
When Jenny asked if Farrah would ever return to Teen Mom, she didn’t hesitate to say “I would definitely go back on the show. I think I should be the host of the show and really be about facing the truth because that’s what I live my life by.” In not-so-shocking news, Farrah admitted that she wasn’t in touch with anyone from the show. She speculated, “Sadly, I don’t know if it was animosity or jealousy or something, I just kind of turned my cheek and just kept moving on. Running forward is the best thing to do from Teen Mom.”
Farrah said, “I’m a little bit confused, as I’m sure many others are, when fans of the show are pulled on after watching us for ten years, not being teenagers and going through the same struggles. We have some on there now that are like twenty something just having kids. I think that doesn’t stay true to the struggles, but I’m not struggling anymore and that’s why I chose to do Teen Mom, to show that you can do whatever you want.”
Jenny told Farrah, “She said she doesn’t want to be anything like you.” Farrah responded with, “That’s OK. I really like being like myself and I’m proud of myself. I hope that she and her children equally have a good situation.”
Farrah declared, that Bristol is “like white girl interrupted.” Umm. What? Farrah continued, “She moved to the same city of me. She kind of does the same things as me and I don’t know what that is, but that’s a little scary.”
Jenny asked for clarification: “You mean like Single White Female?” Farrah did not pick up on Jenny’s correction and just told her, “Either one. I just don’t want any crazy stuff with people copying me, following me, and living where I live.”
Farrah shared, “I would say it’s not appropriate, again, for both Bristol and the other woman who has joined. I would say it’s inappropriate. When you’ve been watching a show, know what it’s about, and been hovering around for so long, I don’t think that’s authentic to what the show’s about.”
She continued, “It’s kind of like a Teen Mom phenomenon. Teen Mom groupies. When they think they’re gonna be famous from having kids, they’re not allowed to be on the show. I see that Cheyenne and this other person who’s been on MTV definitely collaborated to have a child and knew that there was a space opening to be on Teen Mom. Bristol, she’s been around. She’s been to public speaking engagements with Maci [Bookout] and I and other things. So I really think they’re in the same category of women who were chosen not to be on the show because they are Teen Mom fans.”
