Girl fight! Farrah Abraham is slamming MTV’s editing — again — this time accusing them of staging a fight with her Teen Mom OG co-star, Amber Portwood. The mother-of-one was slapped across the face during the reunion special, but only because Amber was “provoked,” Farrah said.
The 26-year-old told RadarOnline, “Amber was provoked by production to run on stage and instigate a fight with me.” She added, “They shut off all TVs on set and tried to remove all families and children beforehand. They instigated bad criminal behavior on set.”
Farrah also accused the show of causing fights with her parents, Debra Danielsen and Michael Abraham. “I had producers always ask me questions and then go run and tell my parents,” she said. “They make things manipulated, not authentic, and due to this, I couldn’t even talk to Sophia’s father before he passed away.”
Derek Underwood was tragically killed in a car accident before his daughter was born. On Dec. 28, 2008, his life was cut short while driving in Iowa when he lost control of the car. He was 18 at the time and so was the passenger who also did not survive that night.
The reality star has been open about the unthinkable tragedy and how it impacted not only her life but her daughter’s. “The 28th comes up every year for me — and I went through depression and a hard time and Sophia, as a child, has gone through her own [struggle, asking], ‘What happened to my dad?’ And having her own loss,” she exclusively told In Touch last year.
She continued to Radar, “Production should never cross boundaries and ruin the natural family interactions as the Teen Mom associated production companies and MTV allowed repeatedly. It becomes an issue and struggle between what’s real and manipulated by production rather than focus on the real lives and stories.”
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
