Don't blink or you'll miss something! Farrah Abraham took to Instagram on Tuesday, Oct. 31, to let fans know that she was fired from MTV hours after the network released the trailer for the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG, but one day later on Nov. 1, she's saying that it was all "fake" and she's not leaving the show. Huh?!
"Viacom Legal confirms I have not been fired, I have not breached my contract," she wrote on Instagram, referring to her earlier claims that her work in the adult entertainment industry pushed MTV to give her the axe. She's now calling the stunt a "hate crime" against her, by the "unprofessional, fake, women hater, press hungry, sex shaming" head of 11th Street Productions, Morgan J Freeman.
She also revealed that in the past, producers have spread lies to get the other moms to team up against her, and she's over it. "Do not beat up, instigate physical fights, ruin and break a women’s self esteem, degrade women, this hate this criminal behavior bad business practices end today!" she ranted. "My daughter, my family, my self, have all suffered for the contrived, malicious hate crime against me." Farrah claims that she will open up even more in her "first #BusinessBook."
This rant isn't so far off from her original claims that she had been fired after being treated unfairly by MTV. To see what Farrah had to say in her first rant, check out the video below!
In her lengthy original statement, the 16 and Pregnant alum — who starred on TMOG alongside friends-turned-enemies Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell — implied that TMOG would be nothing without her. “Sad such a phenomenal show will no longer have its biggest talent on the show because of women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother,” Farrah fumed.
This isn’t the first time Farrah, who will appear on the next season of TMOG with her eight-year-old daughter, Sophia, has felt shunned by MTV for her X-rated business endeavors. As previously reported, the My Teenage Dream Ended shocked fans in 2013 when she filmed a two-part sex tape with porn star James Deen. She later released a line of sex toys, wrote a trilogy of erotic novels, and made many paid appearances at strip clubs.

When MTV originally announced in 2015 that Teen Mom would be coming back to TV as TMOG, Farrah was noticeably missing from the cast lineup. As it turned out, her co-star Maci, now 26, was to blame for Farrah’s snub as she made it clear to producers that she did not want her young son Bentley to be associated with someone who had dabbled in porn. "When I was approached about the show coming back on, I made it very, very clear that I was not going to have any part of [it] if her story was going to be on the show too,” Maci explained at the time, adding that it was nothing personal. "I have no dislike towards her or hard feelings towards her — nothing about that.”
However, after filming resumed, MTV felt the need to bring Farrah back — regardless of her provocative past. “We had shot a couple of story lines,” series creator Lauren Dolgen previously told Us Weekly, “and there is something about having that fourth story to counterbalance — there’s just a magic to four stories and four different points of view.”
Teen Mom OG returns to MTV Monday, Nov. 27, at 9 p.m. EST.
