So long, Farrah!
Farrah Abraham has officially been replaced on the popular MTV reality show Teen Mom by Mackenzie McKee.
McKee appeared on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and the spinoff Teen Mom 3 in 2013 before it was canceled after one season. She’s mom to three kids, 6-year-old Gannon, 4-year-old Jaxie, and 1-year-old Broncs. The reality star also married her longterm boyfriend, Josh McKee, on August 17, 2013.
Recently, McKee’s mother was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. According to TMZ, she was already filming a special about the ordeal for MTV when she was asked to join the cast with Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell.
As for Abraham, she’s currently suing MTV’s parent company, Viacom, for “sex shaming” her. The lawsuit claims she was fired for starring in adult films.
“I wish them all the best with the show. I’m out on a high note. This is the longest season in history and I’m their biggest star,” the 26-year-old mom told Us Weekly on Tuesday. “I can do my own show, but I don’t want to focus on reality TV. I’m focusing on scripted opportunities but will always enjoy a good reality TV project.”
“I don’t know what the show is doing,” she added. “You could take all the girls on all the series, but none can bring or do as much as I do for the series.”
