Cheyenne Floyd: Teen Mom OG Fans FURIOUS with Official Casting News!
Earlier this week, MTV finally confirmed the big news:
It wasn’t the first time we heard the idea of Cheyenne, a star on other MTV reality shows like Are You the One? and The Challenge, becoming a cast member on the show.
Far from it, actually.
The first reports about Cheyenne came out back in June, and word is that she began filming then too, along with the father of her daughter, ex-boyfriend Cory Wharton.
But despite all of that, there was no official word on her casting until now.
So now Cheyenne will join Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Catelynn Lowell, and fellow newcomer Bristol Palin to make the core group of Teen Mom OG.
And in case you haven’t heard, the show’s fans are very, very displeased.
When the official Teen Mom Facebook page posted the news, the comment section was full of dismay.
“Why do they keep adding random people?” one person asked. “These girls were never on the show to start with and shouldn’t be now.”
This is a good point because the “OG” in the title of the show stands for “Original Girls,” because Maci, Amber, Catelynn, and Farrah Abraham, the original cast, have been around since the beginning of the show.
They were on the very first season of 16 and Pregnant, and despite the significant pay raises they’ve received over the years, they really did struggle in the early days — and MTV cameras documented it all.
As another person pointed out, “Can’t be Teen Mom OG if y’all have 2 new people who aren’t even part of the teen mom franchise smh.”
It is a pretty big oversight, considering the title of the show, you know?
Someone else popped in the comments with some sarcasm, writing “I saw a lady with a baby outside of Target today. She looked to be about 25 yrs old.”
“She was fighting on the phone with her boyfriend, so she fits 3 of the key factors. Hurry up MTV, give her a call!!!”
This comment addresses several other issues with Cheyenne’s casting, one being that she’s turning 26 next month and just gave birth to her first child last year.
Say what you will about Bristol Palin — seriously, say whatever, it’s cool — but at least she actually was a teen mom.
Sure, Cheyenne can probably bring the drama, but it feels like anyone starring on a show called Teen Mom should meet that one basic requirement.
Lots of people left comments to say that even though Farrah left the show, things could have gone on with just the three remaining cast members.
Many said that they’d fast-forward through Cheyenne and Bristol’s segments, and some said they’d stop watching altogether.
Quite a few even said that they felt the show should be cancelled at this point.
In conclusion, let’s let one commenter express what the rest of us are thinking:
“Wtf this sh-t is getting so stupid.”
Oh, isn’t it though …
