Ready to hear more details about the vicious hate crimes MTV has committed against Farrah Abraham?
Well, ready or not, Farrah has a story to tell and she won’t stop until she sees justice.
To recap, our girl here announced that MTV had fired her from Teen Mom OG about a month ago, after she began masturbating on livestreams on a cam girl site.
She was very angry about this, and that anger combined with whatever’s going on in that head of hers meant that her statements about the matter didn’t make much sense.
But the general idea is that Farrah believes it was unfair of MTV to fire her for what she does on her own time, when she’s not filming — especially because they didn’t even actually fire her.
She was given an ultimatum, and we saw that in the Teen Mom OG supertease that came out this week.
In a clip that will air later in the season, she’s told that if she continues working in the adult industry, then MTV would be unable to keep her on the show.
She’s said that this was just a tactic to create drama for the show, to manipulate her into giving good footage.
Or, well, she didn’t say that, because clear communication is very hard for her, but that’s what she was trying to say.
OK, so Farrah has been ranting on and off for the past month about how manipulative and hateful and awful MTV is, right?
And it seems like seeing that clip of her being “fake fired” this week really triggered her.
In a post she made on her social media accounts, Farrah wrote “Hate, sex shame, discriminate against a women & bully a women #viacom … then don’t admit your wrong.”
(Go ahead and settle in, because the rest of this mess makes just about as much sense as that opener.)
“#Justice will be served — Judgement day is going to hurt,” she continued.
“When you suck at real story lines you contrive hatred, lies, fake ultimatums a big fail to viacom & their dip sh-ts who are followers in this horrible behavior.”
And then it gets extra interesting because, after a “bitch better have my money” hashtag, she claimed that MTV owes her “a half season of money.”
Does that mean that she hasn’t been filming since the pretend firing? Or that she’s been refusing to film because of all the hate crimes?
It’s hard to say, but she did call MTV “the only company who can’t take what they dish out.”
“Let’s not forget you had to use this clip for the entire show to get press & attention THANK YOU FARRAH & A PUBLIC APOLOGY IS OVER DUE while I’m being mistreated along the way.”
That part is true — they definitely are using Farrah’s potential firing as a way to get interest in this season. Why wouldn’t they?
“Again maybe I’ve out grown narrow minded bad work ethics bad producing and I for damn sure don’t treat my employees like this or insult others successful entrepreneurs like this,” she added.
“Have fun making me out to be a villain when I have the cleanest record out of the entire case, crew & executives (sex,drugs,lies,manipulation…so much ADULT behavior)…”
She makes a good point, because it is pretty bizarre that masturbating on the internet is the line in the sand here.
On the Teen Mom franchise, we’ve seen hard drug use, domestic violence, animal neglect, child neglect … so many bad things.
Stars of the show have gone to actual prison and then get welcomed back with open arms.
It’s just strange that, even after they fired Farrah for her sex tape and then brought her back, the livestreams are supposed to a step too far.
Here’s hoping she gets what she deserves, whatever that may be.
The money for the other half of the new season of Teen Mom OG, an apology, a few English courses … just whatever she deserves, we sure do hope she gets it.

Siggy “Soggy” Flicker cannot let a grudge go.
That became abundantly clear on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 3 when she tried to steer clear of Margaret.
When the episode got underway, it was all about Teresa as she tried to move her father into her home. Even though her mother was gone, she knew her father wanted to be around.
That’s why she let him move all of his antique furniture into the house. Having him around is good for her because it means that she will have someone to help with the kids while her husband is in the big house.
Teresa met up with Siggy to clear the air, and Siggy was anything but nice about Margaret. She felt like the woman betrayed her trust and tried to steal her friends.
She told Teresa she wanted to pull her pigtails out of her head because they were just plain annoying. As much as Teresa wanted to say Siggy’s crying was equally as annoying, she managed to keep quiet.
Melissa was blindsided when Joe bought a restaurant and staffed it without even consulting her. Being in a relationship with someone, you expect to know these things before a sale even starts.
Joe used a petty excuse and said it was mostly for his father. Melissa was mad about all of it because all she wanted was to be kept in the loop. She had every right to be annoyed.
The big event of the episode was Margaret’s party for her new clothing line, and Siggy and Dolores gave her rude responses when she invited them. It did not help that Margaret invited Siggy after realizing she was blocked on her social media accounts.
At the party, which looked like it was on a construction site, Margaret reached out to Siggy to meet up to clear the air. Siggy and Dolores laughed as they replied back to her.
When it came to the lunch date, Siggy had her guard up, and the two women went at it. It was tense, and it looked like Siggy was going to cut Margaret’s pigtails at one point, but the turning point was when Siggy started wailing.
Margaret said her intention was not to make her cry and that they should not be acting in such a way because it was not good for women empowerment. They decided to put the past behind them.
But, based on the preview for next week, cakegate continues and all of the ladies look ready to fight one each other. Even though the action is blatantly fake, the addition of Margaret has been a good one.
She is a hoot to watch on screen. She says exactly what she thinks, and that’s about all we can ask for.
What do you think of the new season? Are you enjoying the drama?
Sound off below!
If you're a sports fan, then by now you've probably heard about the bizarre scene that played out during a Carolina Panthers press conference earlier this week.
Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked quarterback Cam Newton about the routes run by Panthers wide receiver Devin Funchess.
"It's funny to hear a female talk about routes like," Newton replied. "It's funny.''
Suffice it to say, no one else thought Newton's sexist remark was all that funny, a fact that Rodrigue pointed out on Twitter after video of the incident went viral.
"I don't think it's "funny" to be a female and talk about routes. I think it's my job," she later wrote on Twitter.
Rodrigue says she approached Newton after the exchange and the controversial QB made an even more offensive comment.
"I spoke with him after and it was worse. I chose not to share, because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from."
The backlash against Newton was swift and severe.
He lost endorsement deals and was justly roasted all across the social media landscape.
Last night, Newton issued a video apology, as required by the unwritten rules of celebrity scandal.
Unfortunately, it was a half-assed affair that resulted in further derision for the 28-year-old.
"If you were a person who took offense to what I said, I sincerely apologize," Newton said, making it clear that the problem is with the people who were offended, not with him.
“The fact that during this whole process I’ve already lost sponsors and countless fans, I realize that the joke is really on me,” Newton concluded.
Well, he's right about that, at least.
Check out Newton's full apology below:
Well… this is one way to deal with sexual harassment allegations.
On Thursday afternoon, The New York Times published a bombshell article in which it quoted multiple women who claimed Harvey Weinstein took advantage of them in various inappropriate ways.
According to this report, the veteran film producer has settled eight separate sexual misconduct claims over the years.
Ashley Judd is among the women who have issued complaints against Weinstein.
She’s now on record as saying Weinstein answered his hotel room door in 1997, while Judd was shooting the movie Kiss the Girls, and asked if he could either massage her or if she would watch him take a shower.
We know, right? EWWWWW.
In response to this multitude of claims against him, Weinstein basically acknowledged his many decades’ worth of lewd behavior.
“I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it,” he said, adding at the time:
“Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.”
Fair enough, we guess.
What else could he really say in the face of these allegations?
We now have the answer.
In a follow-up statement, clearly written without the help of a publicist, Weinstein opened by blaming the era in which he started his career for how he acted toward the opposite sex.
“I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then,” the producer said.
“I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office – or out of it. To anyone.”
If Weinstein had stopped there, we wouldn’t even be writing this right now.
But he didn’t stop there.
“Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go. That is my commitment,” he added.
“My journey now will be to learn about myself and conquer my demons. Over the last year I’ve asked Lisa Bloom to tutor me and she’s put together a team of people.
“I’ve brought on therapists and I plan to take a leave of absence from my company and to deal with this issue head on. I so respect all women and regret what happened.”
For the record, Lisa Bloom is a lawyer who specializes in representing celebrities seeking some kind of payday.
She sat alongside Blac Chyna this summer, for example, during her revenge porn case against Rob Kardashian.
It’s unclear how she has been acting as a “tutor” to Weinstein.
Weinstein then wrote this:
Jay Z wrote in 4:44 “I’m not the man I thought I was and I better be that man for my children.”
The same is true for me. I want a second chance in the community but I know I’ve got work to do to earn it.
For the record: Jay Z did not rap these words.
What he did rap was this:
“And if my children knew/I don’t even know what I would do/If they ain’t look at me the same/I would prob’ly die with all the shame.”
From there, Weinstein – inspired, we suppose, by this week’s Las Vegas shooting – turned his attention to… the National Rifle Assocation?
“I’ve decided that I’m going to give the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party.
“I’m going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. I’m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party.”
Finally, after touting his progressive bona fides in this manner, Weinstein wrapped it up.
“One year ago, I began organizing a $ 5 million foundation to give scholarships to women directors at USC,” he wrote, concluding:
“While this might seem coincidental, it has been in the works for a year. It will be named after my mom and I won’t disappoint her.”
We’ve got a feeling it’s way too late for that.
Mrs. Weinstein is likely quite disappointed in her son already.
Nearly one year ago, the life of Kim Kardashian changed forever.
We don’t mean to sound overly dramatic, but that’s what happens when you get robbed at gunpoint.
As you’ve very likely heard all about by now, the reality star was in Paris for that city’s Fashion Week last October when multiple men broke into her apartment and tied her up.
They threatened her life while demanding to know where she kept her expensive jewelry.
In subsequent interviews, Kardashian has said she thought she would be raped and/or killed.
Forget all the jokes one typically makes about this mother of two, or all the ways in which she should be deservedly mocked… this was an unimaginable experience.
Kim has reacted to it by scaling back her use of social media and by receding from the spotlight a bit.
She won’t be attending Paris Fashion Week this year, either, as she continues to try and move on from the frightening incident.
But she just receive a stark reminder of it.
Per TMZ, the man who orchestrated this armed attack against Kardashian, Aomar Ait Khedache, actually wrote a letter to his victim this week.
The note was handwritten in French and sent to Kardashian’s legal team. This is an excerpt from it:
“After observing your emotion and realizing the psychological damages I inflicted … I decided to write to you, not to obtain from you some sort of indulgence.”
“I want to come to you as a human being to tell you how much I regret my gesture, how much I have been moved and touched to see you in tears.”
Did Khedache pen this letter out of true remorse?
Does he really feel guilty for what he and his fellow robbers put Kardashian through?
We have strong doubts.
You see, Khedache is about to go to trial. This letter was first sent to the judge in his case, who sent it on to Kardashian’s attorneys.
The most likely scenario here is that Khedache is trying to win favor with the court ahead of potential sentencing; not that he simply decided to write to Kim out of the goodness of his heart.
“Know that I fully sympathize with the pain you are enduring, your children, your husband, and your close ones,” the letter also reads, concluding:
“I hope that this letter will allow you to forget little by little the trauma that you suffered by my fault.”
Kardashian had over $ 10 million in jewelry stolen in this robbery.
She basically went into hiding for months afterward.
You can go back and watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online to hear her talk about the ordeal last season, as it was the primary storyline each Sunday night on E! for weeks.
We hope she’s doing a lot better these days.
