Drama as Teen Mom star quits show in protest


The new season of Teen Mom, now called Teen Mom OG, premiered late last month, and already some serious drama has kicked off.

The show's "Original Girls" returned to our screens for this latest season, with a cast including Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout. However viewers learned last week that another Teen Mom veteran, former porn star Farrah Abraham, would be returning and in last night's episode the cast hear the news for the first time,

While Amber and Catelynn seem happy enough with the news, Maci refuses to accept it and tells producers she has decided to quit the show.

"If this is true, I'm done,” the mum-of-one says. “I’m not doing this anymore. I'm not going to have my six-year-old son on a show with someone who did porn."

She then demands that the MTV crew leave her home, saying, "This is bulls**t. I'm not doing it. You're not going to talk me into it. There's no discussion. This is it. I'm pissed off. I'm really, really mad. As far as I'm concerned, you guys can leave now. This is over. I'm done."

Maci, who is currently expecting a little girl to be named Jayde, made no comment about the incident on her social media feeds last night. 

However the official cast photos for the new series, released back in March and most likely taken after the show was filmed, show both Maci and Farrah in the group shots, so it seems the MTV producers persuaded Maci to come back eventually.

We hope so – we'd miss her southern drawl!
