Dec. 11 (UPI) — Bristol Palin isn’t happy with her portrayal on the MTV series Teen Mom OG.
“No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my ‘life’ ….. my babies, my family, my close friends – they know the TRUTH,” Palin wrote. “I’m a pretty great mom, work my [expletive] off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life.”
“@mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone,” she said. “All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true.”
Palin and Cheyenne Floyd replaced Abraham on Teen Mom OG after Abraham was fired in 2017 after appearing in a pornographic webcam show. Abraham was known for her conflicts with her parents and co-stars during her time on Teen Mom.
“Don’t get me wrong – I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months – but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama,” Palin said.
“Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV,” she told fans.
Palin is parent to son Tripp with Levi Johnston and two daughters, Sailor and Atlee, with Dakota Meyer. Teen Mom OG has showed Palin’s strained relationship with Meyer, from whom she split in January.
“Bristol’s like a kid. She’s more worried about the court of public opinion than getting in there and let’s be parents to the kids,” Meyer said of Palin during Monday’s episode.
“That’s what the show has done to her. She’s more focused on the show and her image than she is about the best interest of the kids,” he added.
