Maci explained that she felt as though the network broke news of Farrah Abraham's return poorly, saying, “When this news was brought to me, it was done in a very shady, very behind my back, ‘We're gonna tell you this on camera’ way.”
Meanwhile, Morgan explained his point of view. “I understand that they share the same hour, but I also feel like the fact that they're just intertwined mitigates anyone judging Maci or judging Bentley for sharing the hour with Farrah.”
Turns out Morgan and Maci are actually close friends off camera, which made their on-screen confrontation even more awkward. “I met my wife at the birth of Bentley,” Morgan explained. “Maci was at my wedding, so there's a relationship there. I did not want to risk that either. It was a situation I had to sort of rely on a lot of faith and at the end of the day realize that it is a TV show, and that Maci will ultimately see it as a TV show.”
While Maci's surely aware that Teen Mom OG's just a TV show, she uses it as a platform to push her message about teen pregnancy prevention and responsible parenting — so it's easy to understand why she was upset by Farrah's participation.
Don’t miss Teen Mom OG on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
