Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood and Maci Bookout are currently in talks for a fifth season of Teen Mom, but Farrah Abraham has been cut from the negotiations. She was currently in the news for starting a porn career, and it is viewed as a bad example of life as a teenage parent. The rest of the group will not be too upset since they wanted her out of the show in the first place.
Back in March 2014, the network wanted to bring the show back for its fifth season. Three of the girls were up for it on one condition, Abraham would not be a part of it. According to sources close to the three women, they do not way someone around talking about sex toys when their children are on the show. It seems like the network has agreed and decided to cut the 22-year-old out.
Teen Mom has not been on air for two years, but the season wants to bring it back. It comes after the hype from last year’s special on Bookout.
However, there has been some talk about criticism from the network. The same network ran Jersey Shore, which was all about sex and partying. There is also the fact that Portwood has been jailed in the past, so will not quite have this perfect image. The idea that the 22-year-old porn-star does not represent the network is questionable with that in mind. It seems that the idea to run the show was more important, and the “bad influence” idea was concocted as a good reason.
The decision to cut Abraham from the Teen Mom talks has not upset her. She is certainly not showing that if it has. The 22-year-old recently admitted that she was never very good friends with the other three girls, and prefers to keep her life separate from them anyway.
She also has plenty of things to keep her entertained. The mother of one has her own line of sex toys, as well as erotic novels. She also boasts about her two sex-tapes that have helped her make money. On top of that, she is starting out with her music career, and possibly does not have time to start filming a fifth season of the TV show. With so much in line, there are chances she has plenty more or at least ideas to take up her time and make herself some money.
The idea for a fifth season comes at a time when Lowell announced that she and her boyfriend, Tyler Baltierra, are trying to conceive again. Their child was put up for adoption four years ago, but they may have decided that they are now ready to be parents. It could be the perfect storyline for the network to show in the season, and will certainly bring up some drama with talk of the decision to put a child into the system coming up.
For now, it seems like the three girls are up for the fifth season. They are negotiating deals, now that Abraham has been cut from the Teen Mom talks.
