Bristol Palin isn’t happy with the way in which her employers over at MTV, portrayed her on Teen Mom OG. According to UPI.com, the 28-year-old reality TV star called the company out on Instagram for attempting to make her like a “fake fill-in Farrah Abraham.”
Palin said on the ‘Gram that no matter how hard the company tries to make her look bad, they’ll always know the truth, which is that she works and hustles hard to give her family and children the best lives imaginable.
“I’m a pretty great mom,” the daughter of Sarah Palin said, adding, “I work my a*s off, show up, and hustle every day to give my kids a pretty great life.”
Bristol told her followers that MTV just wants someone dramatic like Farrah Abraham, for the purposes of imitating other legendary reality television shows like Jerry Springer.
As it was previously reported, MTV replaced Farrah with Palin and Cheyenne Floyd due to her appearances in pornographic webcam shows as well as her tape with James Deen.

If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today – let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my “life” ….. my babies, my family, my close friends – they know the TRUTH. I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life. @mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months – but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama. Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV.
Later on, Farrah filed a lawsuit against them claiming sexual harassment and intimidation. However, Viacom was sure to win, considering their undoubtedly huge team of lawyers.
According to Bristol, the network is concerned with setting up false narratives and other inaccuracies for the sake of ratings and television viewers.
“Don’t believe everything you see on TV,” the star remarked. In case you didn’t know, reality television is quite different than most viewers expect. Editors collect weeks and sometimes even months of footage and then edit it all back together in a way that creates a new storyline.
Palin must be criticizing the way in which the company has edited some of her footage back together. Either way, Palin, in her words, has been hard at work raising her son Tripp, Sailor, and Atlee.
During Monday’s episode, Meyer said that Bristol was a lot like “a kid,” and was more worried about the court of public opinion than anything else. Meyer said she’s overly concerned with her image on the show rather than the concerns of her kids.
