Teen Mom is different from other reality franchises, in that the central cast members all live in different parts of the country.
But despite the geographical distance between them, the ladies are forever united by the experience of starring on such a long-running series.
And the two stars who got their asses fired after years of batsh-t behavior share an even more special bond.
We're talking, of course, about Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans, both of whom were kicked to the curb after years of tormenting the poor producers who were assigned to work with them.
Farrah and Jenelle have talked MAJOR trash about each over the years, but perhaps we shouldn't be surprised by the fact that they've now formed a friendship.
Buckle up, because things are about to get weird:
Over the course of their decade in the spotlight, Jenelle and Farrah have lashed out at just about everyone with the misfortune to cross their paths, including one another.
Brought Together By Unemployment
These days, Jenelle and Farrah are finally seeing eye-to-eye, and it seems it's the experience of being fired by MTV that brought them together.
Farrah was the first to go. She got the ax in 2017, purportedly over her refusal to stop performing in live internet sex shows.
The Cam Girl
Of course, as many have pointed out, Farrah had been appearing in adult films for years, and the more likely explanation is that she was fired for being shockingly rude to her production staff.
Kicked to the Curb
Similarly, Jenelle spent several years making life hell for the people forced to work with her, but in Evans' case, there's no mystery about what finally led execs to kick her to the curb.
The Nugget Incident
Back in March, Jenelle's husband, David Eason, beat, shot, and killed the family dog -- an 11-pound French bulldog puppy named Nugget.
Jenelle helped David hide his crime, and the CPS investigation that followed caused her to briefly lose custody of her kids.
While we're sure all the ensuing drama would have been good for ratings, firing Jenelle was a no-brainer at that point.
Not only did MTV have a moral obligation to no longer subsidize that sort of behavior, continuing to employ Jenelle likely would have led to a boycott.
And so, Jenelle and Farrah find themselves in the unique position of being famous but unemployable, and both have sought creative solutions to this conundrum in order to avoid being forced to get real jobs.
Not surprisingly, Jenelle reached out to Farrah for advice on her current situation. And equally unsurprisingly, Abraham blabbed to the whole world about their conversation.
Enter the Food God
Earlier this week, Farrah appeared on Foodgod: OMFG, the obnoxiously-titled podcast hosted by Kim Kardashian's best friend, Jonathan "Food God" Cheban. There, she spilled the tea about her new bestie.
"Jenelle called me the other day and she's not knowing what to do," Farrah told Cheban.
Putting It Mildly
"She's talking to a PR girl rather than the legal team, and I was like, 'Uh, you have a situation,'" Abraham went on.
Where to Begin?
From there, Jenelle apperently asked about one of Farrah's many legal battles.
Pure Word Salad
"She was like, 'How did you win that court thing?' I was like, 'It's not how, it's what you pay attention to,'" Abraham recalled. "If you're busy running around worried about press and relevancy and all this and not contracts, not what matters. I'm business."
You Can't Make This Stuff Up
So if Farrah is to be believed (big "if"), then Jenelle is actually reaching out to her for legal advice. Maybe there's some truth to those rumors about Evans being too poor to afford a lawyer!
Jenelle has been talking to any media outlet that will listen to her in the months since she got canned, and it seems she's still holding out hope that she'll one day get her job back.
Dare to Dream
"I asked them. Well, my mom, actually, she's like a talent mom so she tries to text my producer every day like, 'Hey, what's going on?'" Evans recently told the Hollywood Life podcast. "She said, 'I saw the new Teen Mom 2 trailer and they said, 'We're not using Jenelle, just for this season.'
And then I contacted our old producer and asked, and he said, 'You know you guys just have an open contract right now and no door has ever been closed,'" she added.
"That's all they told me. I don't know what their plan is. I just know I'm trying to remain low key, stay humble. The kids are back in school so we literally have a busy schedule every day," Evans concluded, on a hopeful note.
That's one helpful tidbit that Farrah could have offered Jenelle -- don't hold your breath when it comes to getting rehired by Teen Mom producers!
Accepting Her Fate
It's been almost 2 years since Farrah was let go, and to her credit, she's managed to remain semi-relevant in that time.
No Such Luck
But Jenelle might not find it so easy to remain in the spotlight.
Location Is Everything
For one, Farrah has relocated to LA, and Jenelle -- with her three kids and ultra-conservative husband -- is not in a position to do the same.
The Real Problem
On top of that -- as hard as it is to believe -- Jenelle is even more hated than Farrah, a fact evidenced by the colossal failure of her new cosmetics line.
Hey, Farrah might have been annoying, but at least she never participated in a puppy-slaying.
