For a while now, it’s seemed like complaining about MTV has become a favorite pastime for each and every Teen Mom cast member.
Which is weird, considering that MTV is paying this girls hundreds of thousands of dollars to just live their senselessly dramatic lives.
We’ve seen Farrah Abraham lose her mind at producers because her contract stated she couldn’t do certain other gigs and she disagreed with it (after signing it).
We’ve seen Jenelle Evans insist that editors make her look bad, when really we know that it’s Jenelle that makes herself look bad.
Really, most of the moms’ issues come down to editing — either they feel like they’re portrayed in a negative way, or their scenes get spliced together for the sake of a juicy storyline.
And this week, both Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska are taking issue with the latest episode of Teen Mom 2.
Chelsea started the conversation — so far on the show, her storyline has mostly been about welcoming little baby Watson and the adjustment it’s been for the family.
Aubree in particular has had a rough time getting used to the new addition, which makes sense. After all, she’d been Chelsea’s only child for a long, long time.
But at one point during the episode, she made a comment about the situation which seemed a little odd.
And, as she explained on Twitter, the comment wasn’t about that situation at all.
“Just a little something that irked me about the show tonight,” she tweeted. “There’s a part where I say ‘I feel like it’s taking away from Cole’s experience.'”
“And that was taken out of context from a different convo and added in that scene for some reason.”
She added the hashtag “Reality TV probs,” because hey, what can you do?
Not much, she clarified — when someone asked if they got to approve episodes before they air, she answered “Helllllll no lol that would be amazing if we could haha.”
Kailyn replied to Chelsea’s tweet about taking lines of context, saying that MTV did just that several times throughout the episode.
She even said that they “provoked the scene with Isaac crying at dinner!!! And I lost my mind!!!”
She also wrote “Let’s talk about how bad the timeline is off tonight. Peep the wall paint and how it flips from mint to yellow back to mind.”
If this is true — and honestly with something as noticeable as the paint on the wall, it’s easy to believe the rest of their claims — it’s pretty sad.
Especially the thought of provoking sweet little Isaac into crying over Kailyn and Javi’s divorce over dinner.
But then again, these ladies have to realize that MTV is running a business, and they know what will attract viewers to the show.
Lots and lots of drama, if you weren’t aware.
If they don’t care for it, they have the option of quitting, but if the income is too important to them, it looks like they’re just going to have to deal with it.
