Big news out of the world of Teen Mom today, as arguably the franchise’s biggest star, Farrah Abraham, says she was unexpectedly fired as a result of recent “side projects.”
Those projects include Farrah’s live sex shows, which have been featured on the adult streaming site Cam Soda in recent weeks.
In a lengthy Instagram rant that was posted alongside a trailer for the new season of Teen Mom: OG, Farrah says she was let go because her sex work and other projects began to overshadow the show that made her famous.
“Even though #Viacom fired me today they couldn’t help but to exploit myself & my daughter for their promotional gain- Viacom let me go because as a Business Mogul I act like an adult and part take in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private!” Abraham wrote.
Yes, it seems Farrah is under the impression that she was let go because executives had become jealous of her personal success:
“Even though I have successfully been to gentlemen’s clubs appearances they filmed and Viacom filmed me at the AVN’s & Viacom shows and glorifies showing couples having sex on their network but as stated today “my brands press out shines the Teen mom Viacom press," she added.
Farrah goes on to liken the behavior of her Viacom bosses to that of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, though she offers no real basis for the comparison:
“Sad such a phenomenal show will no longer have its biggest talent on the show because of women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother.”
Farrah then claims that she’s a victim of sex-shaming and argues that she was fired for her work as an advocate of contraceptive freedom and a sex-positive lifestyle:
“I’m proud of myself not giving in to be sex shamed by Viacom network, Proud to not have a network take away financial opportunities for my goals, proud to be an Advocate for a healthy sex life, safe sex, teen pregnancy prevention and so much more while I run companies in different feilds [sic] and scale them,” she writes.
From there, it sounds as though Farrah is threatening to expose her boss’ drug use?
It’s tough to tell, but she seems convinced that God will have her back in court:
“Cheers to basically winning against hurtful disgusting executives who do way more in their personal lives then what I could ever be judged for-I will never be broken by hateful wrong people and if everyone else is brained washed, on drugs, pills, scheming thinking their at the top of their power trips I WISH to always be apart- I give this chapter of my life to GOD & all of his glory & to justice in court," she writes.
"If God’s for you who dare be against you. I look forward to writing my first business book and sharing all of these life changing experiences in detail , from scheming producers & executives to jealous celebrities, what to do to over come , not be shattered & stay true to the free world we live in!”
Farrah concludes her rant with the following words of encouragement:
“#USA #AMERICA Get out there a keep being you! Your much better then all the politics & the people at the top who could never be at the top if it wasn’t for you! #godisgood”
Viacom and MTV yet to comment publicly on the firing, but if there's any accuracy to Farrah’s claim that she was fired for a business venture that was not specifically prohibited by her contract, she might actually have the basis for a lucrative lawsuit.
Of course, Farrah has physically attacked producers, publicly bad-mouthed her bosses, and generally engaged in all sorts of bad behavior over the years, so it’s not like it would be difficult for MTV to justify its decision to let her go.
