Teen Mom OG: Look Who’s Joining the Cast Now!

That's it, reality TV.

We give up. You win.

Every time we think this genre of entertainment cannot get any more absurd or far-fetched, we fire up the Internet or turn on the small screen and we're proven wrong.

We figured we'd never be shocked again after Bristol Palin was hired to come on board as full-time Teen Mom OG cast member next season.

But now comes word that someone from who past will also appear on upcoming episodes.

Scroll down to see who we mean and prepare for your jaw to hit the floor in 3… 2… 1…

1. Yes, Bristol Palin Really is Joining the Show

This announcement, which we still cannot get over, was made in mid-July, taking all fans by total and complete shock.

2. Is Bristol a Teen Mom?

Bristol and 3 kids
No, but she was easily the most famous pregnant teenager in the country back when her mother ran for Vice President in 2008 and America learned that Palin, at 17 years old, was expecting a child.

3. What About Now?

Palin has three kids: a son named Tripp and two daughters, Sailor and Atlee. She is divorced from the father of her second two children, Dakota Meyer.

4. Who is the Father of Her Firstborn?

Levi Johnston, to whom Bristol was briefly engaged back during the 2008 Presidential campaign and someone who was rather prominent on the national scene at the time.

5. It’s True!

This goes back a decade, so we understand if some readers may not have been following the news closely back then. But, look, here he is ON STAGE at the Republican National Convention.

6. And Here He Is Shaking Hands with Presidential Candidate John McCain

It was as surreal as it sounds, partly because we cannot fathom how parts of the country would have responded if one of Barack Obama’s daughters was pregnant out of wedlock at the time and her teenage son was making all of these appearances.

Bristol Palin to Join Cast of Teen Mom OG!

Well, she may not be an OG, but she's definitely one of most famous former teen moms of all time.

TMZ announced moments ago that Bristol Palin is joining the cast of Teen Mom OG in time for the long-running series' upcoming season.

Needless to say, fans of the show are buzzing with anticipation.

TMOG remains a ratings powerhouse, but almost a decade into its run, producers have made no secret about the fact that they've been on the lookout for a way to keep things fresh.

Casting the daughter of the most bonkers vice presidential candidate in US history should certainly help them to achieve that goal.

Here's what we know about the situation so far:

1. The Governor’s Daughter

The daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Bristol first gained national attention during her mother’s vice-presidential campaign.

2. A Reluctant Celebrity

Just 17 at the time, Bristol’s pregnancy was announced while her mother was serving as John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

3. Speaking Out

Bristol made headlines not only for her pregnancy, but for her outspoken views about birth control and abstinence that did not always align with the conservative right so aggressively courted by her mother.

4. Coincidence?

Interestingly, Bristol’s rise to fame coincided with the launch of the 16 and Pregnant/Teen Mom franchise on MTV.

5. Big Shoes to Fill

Now, Bristol will be taking the spot vacated by Farrah Abraham, who was fired by producers for either being difficult or refusing to give up her porn career. (It depends on whom you believe.)

6. Up to the Task

It’s impossible to imagine a new cast member delivering as much drama as Farrah, but if anyone on the planet is capable, it’s Bristol …

Billie Lee: Replacing Kristen Doute on Vanderpump Rules? Accusing Entire Cast of Transphobia?!

Folks, be happy that the cameras are currently rolling for Vanderpump Rules Season 7 because it sounds like sh-t is really hitting the fan in West Hollywood this week.

The drama began with rumors that Kristen Doute had been fired from the show due to her inability or unwillingness to stir up unnecessary drama with her castmates.

If you watched last season, you know Kristen seemed to be content in a stable, committed relationship and wasn’t getting blackout drunk nearly as often.

In other words, she committed each of the reality star cardinal sins, and no one was surprised by news that she’d been banished to Vander-purgatory to await the endtimes in the company of Vail Bloom and Laura Leigh.

“She’s just not crazy Kristen anymore,” one production source bluntly stated.

Kristen denied that she’d been demoted to “friend of the castmates” status, but the rumor resurfaced this week with some new and intriguing details:

According to Radar Online, Kristen will be replaced as a full-time cast member by SUR newcomer Billie Lee.

“She did extremely well,” the source said about Billie Lee’s first season on the show.

“All of the cast loves her — and so did the ratings!”

Of course, it appears the source delivered that quote ahead of the Twitter war that began playing out between Billie Lee and the rest of the cast last night.

It seems the ladies of SUR will be hosting a Tuesday night event at the restaurant called Girls’ Night In.

(What happened to James Kennedy’s See You Next Tuesday? Fingers crossed that shaved ferret got sh-tcanned, too!)

Billie Lee apparently felt that she had been left out of the gathering, and she made her feelings clear in a very irate tweet:

“When yo coworkers don’t include the only trans girl in GIRLS night at your own job! On the night you work! #rudeAF #TransIsBeautiful.” she wrote.

Billie Lee Tweet

As you can see, it appears that Billie Lee was indeed invited to the event, which may be why Kristen and company were so vehement in defending themselves:

“You better check yourself before you wreck yourself,” Doute tweeted, adding:

“It’s not your event. Don’t make this about something it’s not. #NoH8 … We are not hateful people and ABSOLUTELY support the LGBTQ community. A person is a person is a person.”

Katie Maloney echoed the sentiment, tweeting:

“I’m completely supportive and will always be supportive of the LGBTQ community … EVERYONE is invited and welcome tomorrow!”

It’s possible that Billie Lee was genuinely offended by what she perceived as prejudice among her castmates — but it’s equally possible that she’s stirring up drama to give the people what they want.

And if that’s the case, the girl might have a very bright future at Bravo.
