As we just saw on Teen Mom OG, Farrah Abraham and MTV have severanced their relationship.
Basically, she was told that if she wanted to continue filming the show, she'd have to stop doing her webcam shows -- and it seems pretty clear now which career path she chose.
It's been a while since all this actually happened -- nearly five months -- but Farrah still has some pretty strong feelings about what happened.
And honestly, the girl does not seem well.
First Things First
So let's kick this off by talking about the actual scene, which began with executive producer Morgan J. Freeman sitting down with Farrah to "look at just sort of how people are treated."
Morgan started to tell her that having "compassion and understanding" while filming was important, but she cut him off with "I am so compassionate. I am so understanding. I am working my ass off, just like everyone." And that last part may be true, but Farrah Abraham calling herself compassionate and understanding is really just so crazy.
The big issue here seemed to be Farrah's treatment of a specific producer, Kristen, who Farrah refused to work with. Morgan called her attitude "very challenging," to the point where "the amount of work that goes into keeping you happy with crew has bubbled up to a point that we have to figure out if we move forward."
"F--king Shoot Me"
She basically told him to just figure it out, and he responded by telling her that for some reason, out of all the moms on all the shows, she was "the only one that's a problem." To that, compassionate and understanding Farrah said "I'm sorry. F-cking shoot me for being who I am."
He said that what she was was difficult, and she actually denied that with a straight face, because obviously there's no limit to her delusions. Hilariously, she added that she doesn't "need anymore drama."
The Next Issue
But Farrah's terrible attitude wasn't the only problem -- Morgan also said that "there's been friction" concerning the "adult activities" she'd been promoting. Meaning, of course, those webcam shows she'd been doing.
He reminded her that she'd told MTV she wouldn't be doing adult videos anymore, and as bizarre as it sounds, Farrah seemed to not understand that those camgirl shows counted as "adult videos."
Oh, Honey ...
"I have no new celebrity sex tapes out there," she said, and Morgan acknowledged that that was true, but that masturbating on the internet is "the same type of behavior." Because obviously it is.
He told her that no one was judging her for those shows, but "if you choose to work in the adult industry, we can’t continue to film your show for Teen Mom." As he explained it, this was a decision by people higher up, and that "no one’s saying that you can’t do any of this stuff. It’s just, if you’re gonna go down that path, we can’t keep shooting this path."
She told him that she doesn't have to choose anything, but later we saw Morgan taking a phone call from Farrah in which she said "Honestly, webcams, or adult entertainment, or healthy sex lives, or safe sex, or all of these things — all that stuff is more beneficial and I will always continue to do that regardless if it’s my own show, not on MTV anymore. There are so many paths for me in my life. Hell, I’m only 26."
He said that she had to choose what was best for her, and she replied with "Well then I will just have my lawyer contact you guys, and I wish you guys all the best." And then she hung up. And just like that, Farrah Abraham was gone from Teen Mom forever (or at least for the rest of the season probably).
At the end of the episode, MTV added a few tweets from Farrah about the situation, gems like "Watching @TeenMom @mtv I’m so happy I don’t welcome anymore of @MTV made up sh-t to help mention the other trash moms feel important lmao good luck @MTV #2018goals #Sorrynotsorry."
The also added a statement of their own: just some simple text that read "Farrah is no longer filming with Teen Mom.” So it really does seem pretty final.
Since it's been a good few months since all that actually happened, Farrah's probably come to terms with everything. She had all that initial weirdness right after all of this happened in her real life, so even though we're just experiencing it all for the first time, she's definitely processed all of this and dealt with it, right?
LOL, just kidding! This is Farrah Abraham we're talking about, after all. You know this girl has probably never processed anything in her whole entire life.
On Monday morning, Sophia tweeted this message about how much MTV hurt Farrah. Sophia 100% wrote this all by herself, no question.
Then Farrah tweeted this from her own account -- the same stuff about "damage hate discrimination inequality wrong doing" that she's been saying for months now.
... They kind of do have room to speak though? Since it's their show and Farrah was their employee?
Sure thing, girl. Whatever you say.
"I Never Quite"
She also responded to a story about what happened, explaining that she never "quite" the show, but she wasn't fired, either. Because that makes sense.
This Horrible Cycle
She shared the screenshot of that tweet on her Instagram and threw in this message, too, just in case you wanted to hear some more of het bizarre ramblings.
And real quick, how amazing is it that she's trying to make that "legalize equality" hashtag into a thing?
But then, in a statement she gave in a new interview, she seemed fine with everything that had happened, saying that "At 26 years old, I feel like I've accomplished so much already and I hope to continue to develop new products, from my furniture, toys, and clothing line to providing entrepreneurs with educational resources. The sky's the limit. I would also love to open a new frozen yogurt location!"
Which totally sounds like something Farrah would say. After all, she IS known as the most eloquent Teen Mom, always ready with a coherent sentence and a complete thought!
But look, whatever happens, if she keeps up her career in the adult industry or if she manages to get her old MTV gig back, we really do wish her all the best. Because after all, she does have a young daughter to support, and poor Sophia is going to have a hard enough time having Farrah as a mom without financial problems.
