by at .

Yup, she really is on her way, folks.

As previously reported, Bristol Palin is joining the cast of Teen Mom OG, ostensibly as a replacement for Farrah Abraham, who was fired by MTV in February of 2018.

While fans of the series continue to digest this stunning piece of news, Bristol herself is here to confirm two things:

  1. She IS coming on board.
  2. She has a benevolent reason for doing so.

What could that be?

Scroll down to hear from Bristol Palin herself!

1. I'm In!

Bristol shared this photo of herself, her three kids and also some cameramen as proof that she's on board. This was her confirmation picture, posted to Instagram.

She wrote as a caption to this image: "I am excited to join MTV's 'Teen Mom OG.' I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey."

Reaction Has Been Mixed
As you can see from this excerpt of Instagram comments, some viewers are excited about Bristol... others think she is too "privileged" to be part of the cast... and others think she lacks "morals and class."

4. No Morals? No Class?

No Morals? No Class?
We aren't the ones saying this, but critics have long criticized Palin for having three kids by two different men, the latter of whom, Dakota Meyer, she's in the process of getting a divorce from.

5. Maybe, That Is

Maybe, That Is
It appears as if Palin and Meyer have reconciled, at least based on social media posts and messages. The two got married in May 2016 and the marine DID filr for divorce back in February. We just can't verify where that filing now stands.

6. Bristol HAS Been Here Before

Bristol HAS Been Here Before
Remember, Bristol appeared on "Sarah Palin’s Alaska" in 2010, a Lifetime series titled "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" for one season in 2012 and two separate seasons of "Dancing with the Stars," even finishing third one time. She is no stranger to reality TV.
