Teen Mom OG ratings have been steadily declining since Farrah Abraham was fired and Bristol Palin quit the MTV series.

Production added Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee to hopefully boost ratings, as she has a large social media presence.

Farrah previously told Radar that the show should be cancelled. “No one is believing the fake story lines,” she said. “These other parents are super fans of the OG girls and have been fans, planned pregnancy is not what Teen Mom OG was about and now it’s okay to keep planning pregnancies to get on TV? Sad mainly for the children.”

She responded, “Once I found out you lied about going… that’s the whole issue. It’s not what you did, it’s how I found out.” He replied, “I was avoiding a fight and I was wrong.” She then asked, “Are you going to tell me when stuff like that happens?” When he responded, “I don’t know,” she went off. “I cannot live with you on the answer,” she said. “You don’t know?!”
