Which side are you on? Earlier this week, it was reported that Mackenzie McKee will replace Farrah Abraham on MTV reality series Teen Mom OG — and in an exclusive interview with In Touch, the Furnished by Farrah owner's mother, Debra Danielsen, shared exactly what she thinks of the latest alleged cast shakeup.
"I never followed the Mackenzie storyline. Her [mother's battle with] brain cancer is traumatic. I feel for her and I do think she will bring value to the series," Debra said via phone on Wednesday. "I, of course, wish her very well — but I don't know if her story is one that's relatable to most people, because she's a female body builder. I just think it will bring a different slant to the show. I don't know how many people can relate or that would want to relate to that."
The newlywed will also, of course, miss her family's time on the small screen — as will their many fans. "I think it's a huge loss that Farrah won't be doing the show anymore, because there are so many fans out there that we do have. They've personally been expressing, at least to me, that they would like me to still be on the show, and that they're gonna miss my daughter. They're gonna miss watching [Farrah's nine-year-old daughter] Sophia grow up," she explained.
"All of these people have become part of my family and I'll miss them and I just really am sad about the whole situation. It's embarrassing, and it's hurtful, and it's sad. "
However, she added, "There are of course haters too, and I hear the hateful stuff as well. Some people are rejoicing because of Farrah's firing and I don't rejoice over anyone getting fired or any reason, especially a single mom. I don't find anything great about that."
