I’ve watched Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 for awhile now, following the moms since they were on 16 & Pregnant. Recently, arguably the most loathed of the “teen moms” (they’re in their 20s, not so “teen” anymore) Farrah Abraham, posted a tweet bashing her co-stars.
Farrah was then bashed for her bashing. She does cause a lot of this drama, but in this case, I actually believe her tweet has some truth to it.
Here is her tweet:
“I’m just happy amber stays In bed, Maci sits on the couch, Catelynn smokes weed in her car , Tyler’s gays still doesn’t admit it, I travel the world & know how to run businesses #teenmom @mtv all I can say is #WOW”
Lots of people, understandably so, mentioned that she shouldn’t talk as she was/is in porn and has received lots of plastic surgery, so she shouldn’t be one to judge.
All of that aside, and although it is not nice or necessary to talk about her cast members in a rude manner, I think she is right on her statement.
Every single time I see Amber on the show, she IS either on her bed or on a chair. She is NOT doing what I see other mothers do-interact with their child. In fact, she is hardly ever seen on the show with her child, Leah. Granted, we only see a few minutes of their lives, but in those few minutes, it is also mentioned how long it has been since Amber has seen her child. (Amber herself didn’t even know long it had been in the recent episode this Monday night). That is telling, and very sad. As a mother, I couldn’t bare not seeing either of my two little girls for a lengthy amount of time.
Her excuse on last night’s episode for not seeing Leah for awhile was because she couldn’t handle it just being her and Leah (she broke up with Matt, her boyfriend of 3 years). What a weird thing to say. She basically said she can’t handle living with just her own daughter, with no man to help her. So she is saying she can’t handle raising her daughter on her own? How horrible.
I do see Maci on a couch a lot as well. Catelynn does smoke weed in her car. I really feel like Catelynn’s depression can improve by her doing more with her life-such as going to school, and/or getting a regular, full-time job. Keeping ourselves busy is important for happiness. Although there are most definitely days where I feel like all I want to do is lay around all day, I couldn’t do it EVERY day. It would get old, and I would get depressed.
I am not sure about Tyler’s sexuality. I don’t personally like him, but he is a great husband and loves Catelynn very much, so I wouldn’t agree with Farrah on that.
I do commend Farrah for opening many businesses. It is nice to see at least one of these teen moms, who have been receiving nice paychecks for their poor choices when they were teens, use the money for investments. I believe she is trying to ensure her and her daughter’s future is secure when they are no longer apart of MTV, and thus, no longer receiving these large checks.
Again, all of Farrah’s drawbacks aside, I think her same thoughts every time I watch Teen Mom OG. I wish these moms would do much more with their lives.
