Teen Mom OG is currently in its 7th season and Naked and Afraid just premiered its 9th season yesterday. Now, the two are having a cross-over event, as Teen Mom OG Maci Bookout is reportedly appearing on an episode of Naked and Afraid, according to In Touch Weekly. The Ashleys Round Up has reported that Bookout participates in a celebrity edition of the show and once source revealed that, “Maci spent a great deal of time training for the show before she left. She got to bring a few extra ‘personal’ items than the typical contestant on the show, but other than that, she didn’t get a lot of special treatment.” Cafe Mom has reported that Bookout will only have to spend three days in the wilderness, instead of the normal 21 days.
Another source has stated that Bookout’s Teen Mom OG contract will not be affected by being a part of Naked and Afraid. The source explained that, “Because this show has nothing to do with Maci’s life as a teen parent, it was not a problem for her to do it. It doesn’t matter that it’s not a Viacom-owned show.” Recently, Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham had to part ways with the show because of her continued involvement in the porn industry, along with her treatment of the show’s production staff, according to executive producer Morgan Freeman. Hearing about Bookout’s on-screen nude gig, Abraham found it ironic that Bookout’s participation was fully accepted by MTV. Abraham’s response was that, “The irony of this is hilarious. Hopefully she has fun on her pornographic show; [it] sounds tragic.” Abraham has launched a $5 million lawsuit against Viacom, after her exit from the show, and recently she spoke out about the suit on Instagram, writing, “Stand up for what is right so we all can be treated better and have a better world, if you want to continue this bad cycle then stay away from me & my family. Start treating people better being racist, sexist, hate crimes, discriminatory, sexual harassment it’s awful and stop impacting generations with the hateful culture it’s wrong & will always be wrong #illegal.”
In leaving MTV, Abraham wrote the following message on her social media. Abraham firmly stated, “Never apologize for being an ambitious, confident, and strong minded women, as I become the best Farrah I can be, I won’t let a man or network be little me, try to break me, lie about who I am to my core, I’m bullied, surrounded & hurt by all the manipulation, I no longer will allow as a protective mother this vulgar behavior, these crews aren’t trust worthy this “mtv family” is a disgusting gang of power tripping failed producers & executives who have failed. Thank you for canceling my dating show, purposely provoking made up hate to try to limit my episodes your actions have consequences like Teen Mom should have made you aware. I am the moment, …read more
