Farrah Abraham Fired From Teen Mom: Right or Wrong?

by at . Comments

Farrah Abraham was fired by the network that made her a star this week. MTV "cut her out of negotiations" from any part of a potential Teen Mom Season 5.

The reason? She's a bad influence, according to execs and co-stars Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell, all of whom wanted her outta here.

Farrah Abraham, of course, leveraged her Teen Mom fame into two sex tapes, a sex toy product line, an erotic novel trilogy, and a stint on Couples Therapy.

We could go on. But apparently, MTV had seen enough. They felt the Backdoor Teen Mom diva "sets a bad example and doesn't represent the network."

Bookout, Lowell and Portwood reportedly refused to do the show if Farrah participated, so the network obliged. For her part, Abraham says that's all good.

"Truthfully, I was never friends with them," she said. "Personally, I like to keep my life separate. We came in separate, and I think it's best we keep our lives separate."

If she really believes that (one never knows with Farrah), fair enough. But isn't it basically MTV's mission to parade around people who set bad examples?

Either that or we totally missed the point of The Hills, or Jersey Shore ... or Teen Mom 2, which is still on and likely to get a sixth season starring Jenelle Evans.

Jenelle. Evans.

Perhaps Farrah is just too much of a loose cannon and unreliable to work with. Otherwise, it's hard to justify this decision from any sort of moral high ground.

Sure, she's done shady stuff, but is one sex tape really that much worse than prison (Amber), domestic violence (Kailyn Lowry) or a dozen arrests (Jenelle)?

You tell us: Is Farrah Abraham getting fired from Teen Mom fair?


Farrah doesn't give a damn about teen pregnancy. She doesn't care about safe sex education. She doesn't care about sharing her story as a lesson to younger girls who might then be equipped to make better choices for themselves. She cares about promoting HERSELF any way she can and is obviously OK with selling herself to do it. So WHY is it not OK for MTV to drop her? She is ridiculous and she won't go away.


Personally I don't believe anyone from Teen Mom has ever/will ever set a positive example. For anyone. I've never found it attractive or exemplary in ANY way by exploiting their lives,kids lives, and bringing drama to a television network parading pregnant young girls like its some new business. The crap revolving around this idea that showing younger girls it's okay to get pregnant at a young age/ quit school just to be on a television show is sad. Teen Mom is ridiculous and the whole cast and MTV network should be shut down for being a bad example in itself. I'm seriously disappointed in my generation for the example we've set for those younger than us. Can't wait for the next fad to come along when being knocked up will no longer be cool. *sighs heavily*

Farrah Abraham Quotes

I think having a TV show that shows your personality and your intimate life, you know, showing your best friend, and then showing having sex ... to me it's kind of the same thing because both things are intimate.
