It’s been a loooong time since we’ve had the girls of Teen Mom on our TV sets each week! The Ashley never thought she’d see the day that Farrah, Maci, Amber and Catelynn (and their respective baby-daddies, random boyfriends and mulleted parents) were back at a regularly scheduled time on MTV, but– ding dangit– here they are! The first episode of
Teen Mom, er, ‘Teen Mom OG’ (because I guess that’s what they’re calling it now; I think they think it makes the girls sound more gangsta. We already knew Gary was the original gangsta, guys. Duh.)
Anyway, a lot has happened with the girls since we last saw them. Babies have shot out of wombs, penii have entered backdoors (on film, natch), and debts to society have been paid! Let’s get down to business.
This season is different because– for the first time ever– the girls are actually acknowledging that they are on an insanely popular TV show. For years, MTV went to ridiculous lengths to try to make it look like they were just normal teen moms…with ginormous houses…and new cars…and no jobs. In fact, the show’s camera crew and producers will now have their own starring roles on the show!
