Yikes! Bristol Palin is returning to the spotlight next month when she makes her debut as one of the new cast members of MTV’s hit reality TV series Teen Mom OG, and even though she technically isn’t an “original girl” from the very first-ever cast, (she is an OG teen mom in her own right because her teenage pregnancy played out very publicly in the media) she definitely knows how to bring the drama! Fans will be introduced to Bristol just as her marriage to her husband Dakota Meyer fell apart, and according to Dakota, they’re not exactly the most amicable of exes. Watch the video above to see what he revealed on his Instagram stories.
It seems like fans will learn more about their divorce once the new season of Teen Mom OG premieres, because Dakota confirmed that he will star on the show as a supporting character in Bristol’s storyline.
“I am,” he confirmed in a video clip after a fan asked if he will be on the show. “It’s not something I ever wanted to do I was kind of forced into it but what I’m going to do, after meeting the crew and how incredible they are, I’m going to use the platform to show and shed light on living with PTSD, anxiety, and having a family, and what that looks like and try to help and make the world a better place.”
In a teaser clip for the upcoming Teen Mom OG season premiere, Bristol hinted that Dakota’s struggle with PTSD is part of the reason why the couple couldn’t make their marriage work. “My husband Dakota has been struggling with PTSD and it’s been hard on our marriage. We don’t know how to co-exist together. I don’t want to raise my kids to think that this is what a marriage looks like,” she said in the clip. “I go to sleep at night knowing that I did give it my all.”
Teen Mom OG premieres on Monday, Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
