'Teen Mom OG' is reportedly replacing Farrah Abraham with another MTV star
Farrah Abraham was recently arrested for an alleged altercation with the hotel staff at a Beverly Hills resort
It looks like Teen Mom OG cast may be gearing up for a whole new face now that Farrah Abraham is off the show. As reported by 'The Ashley', MTV is planning to replace Abraham with Cheyenne Floyd who has also appeared on the network's other shows like 'Are you the One?' and 'The Challenge'.
MTV has not yet announced any new information regarding the casting but Floyd's role on the show seems pretty concrete. "It’s official. The only way this doesn't happen is if Cheyenne or Cory backs out, but contracts have likely already been signed so it’s highly unlikely," a source shared.
It was previously reported that the former 'Teen Mom 3' star Mackenzie McKee was going to be brought in as a replacement for Farrah Abraham but a source close to production told 'The Ashley' that both she and Ryan Edwards wife Mackenzie Standifer were unable to get fans excited for the new season. "[The network] realized that the fans weren’t going to be excited about either option. So they continued to look," a source shared.
McKee will be re-appearing in the 'Teen Mom' franchise after having recently filmed about her mother's battle with cancer. "All prayer warriors. Please pray for my mom," she wrote in a tweet. "What we thought was bronchitis turned out to be three masses on her brain, 1 large one in her lungs and multiple blood clots. We are in shock and devastated. She has brain surgery tomorrow. I’m sick. I’m so sick and want to wake up from this nightmare."
It is unclear whether the Teen Mom OG cast is aware that Floyd was cast in Abraham's role though the other Teen Mom stars have made it very clear that they were not feeling positive about having another woman join the cast.
Catelynn Lowell told Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry on her Coffee Convos podcast," They can’t [bring in another girl to our show] because we’re the OG’s, the original girls. If you do that, it won’t be the original girls anymore."
Floyd may not fit into the show having her first child at the age of 24 but she definitely has a lot of baby daddy drama to spark some interest in the season. After giving birth to Ryder in April 2017, she refused to name the father of the little girl for some time until she finally announced that Wharton had fathered the child. "Their co-parenting relationship is nowhere near as happy as they try to make it out to be on social media. They will fit in perfectly on Teen Mom," the source continued.
Teen Mom alum, Farrah Abraham was recently arrested for an alleged altercation with the hotel staff at a Beverly Hills resort. According to Abraham, the hotel incident was completely blown out of proportion and she felt targeted out because she was a celebrity. After being released from jail, Abraham wrote in a public Instagram post, "I chose this life and I handle being targeted as a public figure & public punching bag."
"ALL is fair in Farrah’s world. I will never believe the lies that people need to sell to make a dollar off me. Happy it’s all recorded and documented as I should never feel unsafe and be targeted at a hotel I’m staying at… The Beverly Hills hotel truly allowed misconduct by staff to a paying guest," she continued. She also went on to rant about her experience at the hotel and said, "There’s no need for me or anyone else to be treated this way."
Farrah also lashed out at the Beverly Hills Police officials and wrote," The Beverly Hills Police officers should stop having power trips and lying and selling stories to publications, while you let all of Beverly Hills be robbed, car break-ins, stealing go on... focus on really protecting the public and doing good for Beverly Hills instead of creating made up problems."
Abraham made the above statement after TMZ released footage of Abraham's arrest which shows her cussing at officers after the incident. In the video, Farrah can be seen saying, "If you want to f***ing bulls*** me and if you want to act like I’m not a real adult, go f*** yourself and go f*** your self and go f*** yourself,” she said. “It’s pathetic. Where am I battering anyone? I did not attack or batter or hurt or injure anyone."
"You want to do that on camera so everybody at TMZ can see and everybody else can see that you’re going through my freaking bag?" she continued. Abraham was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery and trespassing pursuant to a private person’s arrest and booked at the Beverly Hills Jail on $500 bail. However, her Instagram post said otherwise and she claims that she was let off with "no charges & no jail time."
Her representatives said that she will "return" and continue to focus on her business and her daughter will remain her "#1 priority". "Please remember, there are two sides to every story," the rep continued before thanking fans for their "concern".
