Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are considered to be the OG’s of Teen Mom, after all, their show is named Teen Mom: OG. The ‘OG’ actually represents what you think it does, the original girls.
Farrah Abraham is no longer a part of the Teen Mom franchise, the decision wasn’t easy on MTV’s behalf but they had to let go. Abraham’s behavior was excessive and unforgivable.
“We respect Farrah’s decision to pursue other endeavors and we wish her the best,” Viacom’s statement read. Before quitting the show completely, MTV aired a special ‘sitdown’ episode, showcasing Farrah’s battle with the producers.
“We want to look at how people are treated. For example, Kristin — who we all love, who we think is doing a great job — isn’t here today. You don’t snap your fingers and say ‘new producer’ and we fly one in. I think some compassion and understanding. Everybody is working,” Morgan Freeman said.
“I am so compassionate. I am so understanding, I am working my ass of just like everyone,” Farrah interrupts. “I respect a lot of people who respect me … I mean, you’re doing other Teen Moms, she can just go bounce around and annoy the s—t out of everybody else,” Farrah replied.
“Honestly, webcams or adult entertainment or healthy sex lives or safe sex or all these things — all that stuff is more beneficial and I will always continue to do that, regardless if it’s my own show, not on MTV anymore,” Farrah confirmed her position on the future.
After everything settled down, Farrah released a final statement:
I’m so damn happy I will never have to be around unsafe, discriminatory , sexist, hateful, wrong doing, bullying, deceitful illegal horrible ethics ever again! I’m free & so happy I stood up for what is right! Justice will be served so happy I’m not stuck in the horrible cycle!

Catelynn & Tyler reflect
In a special Teen Mom episode of The Dr. Oz show, Catelynn & Tyler reflected on their colleague getting fired. “I think if it’s going against what MTV believes in and that’s what they feel like they had to do, then that’s what they feel like they have to do,” Catelynn said of the firing.
“I think it’s great. I think it’s awesome. The way she decided to live, her lifestyle, it just doesn’t really mesh with the rest of the cast and what we’re trying to educate [audiences] about, it just doesn’t work. It doesn’t work very well together,” Tyler shared his opinion.
“We actually have a lot of respect and admiration for the way that our production company went and handled it. They kind of made a stand with a voice and it was a good way to get it heard,” the couple confirmed.
