Reality star Farrah Abraham has made quite the spectacle of herself in the name of staying current post-Teen Mom.
A star of MTV reality shows 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom, the single mother has resorted to a number of publicity stunts in order to gain column inches and airtime. From allegedly hiring and attempting to hire a number of “fake boyfriends” for VH1 reality show Couples Therapy, the last of whom exposed the sham on Facebook and admitted VH1 allegedly knew and didn’t care that their relationship was a contrived business arrangement to get her back on television.
Moreover, Farrah has released an adult movie (released as two movies from VIVID Entertainment), co-starring adult star James Deen who also claims Farrah fabricated a romantic relationship with him for attention; with Farrah going so far as to stage a pregnancy scare.
Since then, Farrah has been on one long press tour promoting… herself… and whichever project she’s supporting: a line of adult toys, a kids’ book, an erotic novel, a biography, etc..
Most recently, Farrah was featured on a “Where are they now?” episode of Teen Mom along with the other girls from her season who each had their own specials discussing their relationships, kids, friends, and careers. Corollary to that, MTV is working on a Teen Mom reboot. However, according to sources, Farrah is not invited.
MTV’s hit reality show Teen Mom is in talks of returning to a small screen, but without a one of the original stars—Farrah Abraham.
According to a new report, the three other women—Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood—are in talks of returning for a fifth season of their iconic program, which ran its last regular episode in August 2012, while Farrah has allegedly been cut from the show for “setting a bad example.”
A source reveals MTV executives have “willingly cut Farrah” from discussions about a possible reboot, partially because the other mothers don’t want their children on a show that associates with Farrah.
“MTV agreed,” the insider explains. “They feel she sets a bad example and doesn’t represent the network well.” [via In Touch Weekly]
