Oh, no she didn’t. Farrah Abraham — who recently got into a feud with the higher-ups at MTV — took to Twitter last week to slam Teen Mom OG, while praising TLC’s new teen pregnancy-focused docuseries, Unexpected.
“Love ‘Unexpected’ how honest and non-scripted it is!” the 16 and Pregnant alum, 26 — who is mom of eight-year-old daughter Sophia — tweeted on Wednesday, Nov. 15. “Honest story telling! MTV needs to take notes their fake teen mom quality is not even credible to watch anymore…OG real talk.”
Farrah’s tweet comes just weeks after she released a statement saying she had been fired from TMOG for her involvement in the adult entertainment industry. “Even though #Viacom fired me today they couldn’t help but to exploit myself & my daughter for their promotional gain,” Farrah — who appeared in two sex tapes filmed in 2013, and subsequently released a line of adult toys and a trilogy of erotic novels — wrote on Instagram. “Viacom let me go because as a Business Mogul I act like an adult and [partake] in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private!”
She later revealed that the firing was somehow “fake” and that she would be returning to the show the made her famous. "Viacom Legal confirms I have not been fired, I have not breached my contract," she wrote on Instagram, referring to her X-rated endeavors. She said that the stunt was a “hate crime” against her plotted by the "unprofessional, fake, women hater, press hungry, sex-shaming" producer Morgan J. Freeman.
Farrah isn’t the only one who thinks Unexpected has a leg up on the Teen Mom franchise. One of the TLC show’s stars, Lexus Scheller, echoed the MTV personality’s opinion during a Nov. 10 interview with Us Weekly. "Our show's a lot different… there’s not as much drama,” the Indiana native — who got pregnant at 15 and was raised by a teen mom herself — said. “I think it’s more real. Our problems are more realistic than [they are on] Teen Mom and shows like that. I feel like our stories are better. I do!”
Unexpected airs on TLC Sundays at 10 p.m. EST.
