Teen Mom OGs Dish on Newbies: What Do They Think of Bristol and Cheyenne?

by at .  Updated at .

We just heard what Farrah Abraham thinks of her replacements.

In an extended interview, the former Teen Mom OG star has some harsh words for Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd.

But Abraham hasn't actually shot any scenes with these Season 8 additions. We don't think she's even met them.

Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood, on the other hand, have already starting filming upcoming episodes of the MTV hit with Palin and Floyd, meaning they can provide some actual insight into the fresh faces.

What has filming been like so far?

How do the three OGs feel about the two newbies?

Maci, Catelynn and Amber spoke to Us Weekly about Palin and Floyd, giving fans an update on how everything is going on the series, which returns to MTV on Monday, October 1.

Check out their quotes below.

8. So That Sets the Stage...

So That Sets the Stage...
How is filming going so far? It’s going really well, actually,” Bookout told Us. “I think we were a bit apprehensive because, I know for sure myself — and I don’t want to speak for Catelynn or Amber — but for me definitely, I felt like the media may have put certain tones out there that we weren’t happy about them coming on or happy with them, and I was kind of worried that they would believe that. But I mean honestly, it couldn’t have gone better. It was nice to enjoy working with everyone."

9. For the Record:

For the Record:
The media has mostly only really quoted Maci, who said she only had one issues with Bristol, which is that producers never consulted her or any of the OGs before hiring her. Or even announcing the hire.

10. Et Tu, Catelynn?

Et Tu, Catelynn?
"They’re both really nice … I’m getting to know them, I’m not going to walk in with any judgments,” the 26-year-old told Us. “I’m going to give them the time [and] day that I give anybody that I meet, and then if you screw me over, then I learn. If you don’t, and we become really good friends, then that’s awesome."

11. Sounds Like a Pretty Serious Warning

Sounds Like a Pretty Serious Warning
Eh, not really, Catelynn concludes as follows: "They both seem really nice and I feel like they have a lot to contribute to the show and different types of stories and lives, and that’s the whole point, isn’t it?"

12. As for MTV, However?!?

As for MTV, However?!?
Catelynn reiterates the same beef that we mentioned previously when it comes to how MTV went about this hiring process, telling the tabloid: "I have more sh-t, like, against the network for not having respect for us or respect us enough to just give us a call and say, ‘Hey this is what we’re thinking.’ … So really that’s where my anger was and still is.”

13. Amber Says She Was Nervous to Meet the Newbies

Amber Says She Was Nervous to Meet the Newbies
"We didn’t really know what to expect. We were kind of like, ‘Oh we’re the OGs.’ … We just kind of felt like we were thrown into something and we had no clue what was going to happen."

14. So There Was a Lot of Tension Right Off the Bat?!?

So There Was a Lot of Tension Right Off the Bat?!?
Not so much, apparently, Amber continues: "Then they showed up and they’re honestly so sweet and real. That’s another thing I think we had like, a issue with, like, we just really want the realest people on our show who are really going to show their lives. We didn’t know if the network was bringing somebody in [to] cause drama or what, so it’s pretty cool that I actually see, you know, that their vision is to help people."

15. Okay, But Floyd Gave Birth at Age 23

Okay, But Floyd Gave Birth at Age 23
She isn't even a teen mom! Surely this deserves some criticism, right? "At first when I heard, I was like, ‘Wow, you know, she’s not a teen mom, she wasn’t a teen mom,’” Lowell said. "But then getting to know her a little bit … with her daughter having these medical issues and her and her baby’s father, like, coparenting the way they do. I think that’s good for people to see."

16. Bookout Agrees

Bookout Agrees
On this topic, she says: "I definitely think that she has a lot to bring to the show. She’s very relatable and she’s also going through things and dealing with things that the rest of us aren’t, and that’s always important when you’re trying to reach a lot of people that are going through similar things, but also very different things at the same time. It’s always been a goal of the show, it’s definitely a bonus."

17. Snooooze

Snooooze
No offense, ladies, but: HOW BORING! What kind of season are we in for when everyone seemingly gets along so well?!?

18. Dare We Say It?

Dare We Say It?
We guess we have to: We miss Farrah already! At least she's always good for some drama and contention.

19. Just Consider What She Said About Floyd Recently:

Just Consider What She Said About Floyd Recently:
"They’re from other MTV shows, they’re like Teen Mom groupies. They’re Teen Mom, like, fans, and that’s fine if you are, but don’t go on my show that you watched, talk sh-t about me, act like me, it’s like white Girl Interrupted. It’s not cool, it’s not OK." See! This is what we're talking about!

20. Or What She Said About Bristol:

Or What She Said About Bristol:
"There’s no intelligence there and I actually feel like the Teen Mom fans deserve to have better people fill my position and they deserve to have better quality." Bam! We love it!

21. Will We See This Sort of Tension on Season 8?
