From coming clean about addictions to finding (more) random topics to talk about in order to make a profit, the stars of the Teen Mom franchise (both past and present) have been keeping themselves busy lately. In an effort to keep you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 news, The Ashley brings you the Teen Mom News Pile.
Here are some of the major (and minor but interesting) ‘Teen Mom’-related things that have happened over the last week or so…
Cory Wharton blames his grandma for his addiction to appearing on reality TV.
‘Teen Mom OG’ dad Cory has appeared on more than his fair share of reality TV shows, but he claims to have a completely reasonable explanation for doing so: he’s addicted.
The father of two appeared on The Residency Podcast recently to explain why his mug is practically synonymous with MTV… and why it’s all basically his grandmother’s fault.
“Am I addicted to [being on reality TV]? Yeah. Hell yeah,” Cory said. “I love being on camera and I love being on TV. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t, but I think this all stems back to my grandma … .”
Cory claims that when he was growing up, his grandma had a camcorder and would record “everything.”
“I don’t know if it translates now, it just makes me comfortable in front of the camera,” he continued.”
For those unaware of just how comfortable Cory is in front of the camera, his MTV resume includes appearances on the following shows: The Challenge, ‘Teen Mom OG,’ The Real World Ex-Plosion, Teen Mom Family Reunion, Ex on the Beach, and How Far Is Tattoo Far– a show he appeared on alongside baby mama Cheyenne Floyd, during which Cheyenne had the opportunity to permanently brand Cory with the logo of the network he loves so dearly.
Cory said being in front of the camera is what he’s used to and he gives all the credit to his grandma.
“She started this when I was really little and then now it’s just kind of picked up,” he explained.
Kail Lowry announces she’s doing a third podcast.
‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kail is a mom of four, and soon to be host of three podcasts.
Kail, who already hosts Coffee Convos with Lindsie Chrisley, as well as Baby Mamas No Drama with Vee Torres– the wife of Kail’s first baby daddy, Jo Rivera– announced this week that she is launching yet another podcast, Barely Famous, on February 18.
“Did someone say Friday F**kery? Let’s make it official because things are about to get weird!” Kail announced Friday on Instagram. “Join me every Friday starting February 18 for Barely Famous Podcast. Go subscribe on Apple Podcasts (link in my bio), listen to the trailer, and leave a review with guests you want to hear from!”
Unlike her first two podcasts, Kail will be the sole host of Barely Famous, though she will apparently be inviting guests to join her each week.
In the teaser clip posted to her Instagram, Kail asks one mystery guest how they feel about the fact that the two of them have been “on and off for two years” but she has never posted photos of them on social media. Kail also asks the individual what they have to say to those who compare him to Chris Lopez.
“I’m nothing like him,” he replies.
In another soundbite, Kail calls herself a “prude,” while questioning how she has four kids.
On her Instagram Story, Kail told followers she was really excited about the new podcast and assured listeners it would be different than her other two because it would include people she grew up with, people she’s friends with now and would really “get a look into who Kail is”– before ‘Teen Mom 2’ and during.
“I want it to be more personal and also interview other reality stars and things like that, but in a different way than I would on Coffee Convos or Baby Mamas [No Drama],” she added. “I don’t want you guys to think it’s taking away from Coffee Convos or Baby Mamas [No Drama] in any way, it’s very different.”
In the trailer for the new podcast, Kail introduces herself to listeners as their “favorite villain and podcast host,” before joking that podcasting is the only thing that she’s good at.
” … With that being said, I’m bringing you the most raw, real, uncomfortable conversations with guests you’d never expect,” she continued. “Is it my ex? Is it your ex? Things are definitely going to get weird … .”
Farrah Abraham hands out cease & desist orders & threatens to file a “lawsuite” against people who call her the “Backdoor Teen Mom” or say she sells poop.
(Now that’s a sentence The Ashley never thought she’d have to write…)
Farrah is fightin’ mad and ready to distribute cease and desist orders to anyone who dares to discuss any of her, um, “posterior activities.”
After several of her ‘Teen Mom Family Vacation’ co-stars took to social media this week to poke fun at Farrah’s side gig of dealing her own dung, Farrah threatened to take legal action against them, as well as a few media outlets and TikTokers who have referred to her as the “Backdoor Teen Mom” and discussed her poop-hocking. In a message posted to Instagram Stories on Friday, Farrah announced she would be sending out cease and desist letters and would file a “lawsuite” against them if they didn’t stop.
(It appears that Farrah is alleging that she was not selling poop and it was just a joke or this weird poop slime she’s selling on her website. However, several videos from her OnlyFans that have recently circulated the Internet show Farrah actually engaging in these, um, crappy, activities. Ashley Jones recently posted a screenshot of one Farrah’s bathroom fetish online offerings, which include several excrement options.)
Naturally, she accused the media outlet @BarStoolSports (no pun intended) of committing a “hate crime” against her by posting a tweet calling her the “Backdoor Teen Mom” (which was the name of her sex tape), and by posting this video about her poop-selling ventures.
@barstoolsports I did not consent being called the title that you called me nor did I title a video your obsessed with, nor you are not allowed to continue misinformation on watermarked content I own. Remove this now legally you do not have my consent. Defamation.

“I did not consent being called the title that you called me nor did I title a video your obsessed with, nor you are not allowed to continue misinformation on watermarked content I own. Remove this now legally you do not have my consent. Defamation.
“@egotastic and @barstoolsports cease & desist spreading false information on poop or toilet paper etc regards to my name as it’s illegal and false,” she tweeted. “You do not have my consent on posting this and I’ve never done that. Defamation is against the law. Sorry to s**t buyers.”
“If you do not delete all of your misogynistic, patriarchy, hate crime, defamation ‘Back door teen mom’ titles down in association with my name I’m filing a law suite,” she wrote on Instagram Stories on Friday.
Farrah then seemed to acknowledge that the content being posted about does exist; however, she is the owner of it and it’s illegal to repost it, as it’s copyrighted material. (This is actually true.)
“[You] continue to share illegal content I own and mislead people. I’ve had enough damage on my life and I’ve already said to stop and take it down. I’m filing a lawsuit today and I hope @Barstoolsports shuts down. If you dont’ have a law degree don’t be a failed journalist.”
She then claimed that she is “checking into a trauma treatment program.”
Kiaya Elliot calls out MTV for continuing to give Farrah Abraham a platform.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Kiaya Elliott may not have witnessed Farrah’s recent return to the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise, but she did watch it happen on TV and she’s not only upset by Farrah’s antics, but also at MTV for giving Farrah yet another opportunity to, well… be Farrah.
“I don’t understand why they keep giving [Farrah] TV time after constantly proving her ignorance,” Kiaya wrote. “She always goes on these rants about how she hates [‘Teen Mom’] but when they call her she comes running I don’t get it. [‘Teen Mom’] should have been cut ties with her.”
Kiaya seemed to then take a swing at the other ‘OG’ moms as well.
“It’s disgusting to watch these older YT teen moms act so oblivious like they don’t know what and what not to say. It’s sad!”
Kiaya even let people know what she would bring to the show if MTV was to do a second season of ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ and include her in the cast.
Although she warned potential co-stars she wouldn’t tolerate anyone “trying” her, she added that it was “just a joke.”
