What could be more awkward than being a teen mom turned adult film protégé? Farrah Abraham might just be able to tell you.
The 23-year-old came to fame appearing in four seasons of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant with co-stars Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood. After alienating her peers and proving she can make “decent” sex tapes, Vergara left the show in 2013 to pursue a career in adult entertainment
Now all grown up and with more than a few dollars tucked in her undies, Abraham rejoins her peers in the MTV show’s upcoming season of Teen Mom OG.

“It was a little bit awkward for me, and I tried to work with them the best that I could,” Vergara said when asked about MTV’s surprise call. “I was just a little bit reluctant because of the progress I made while I was not on the show.”
Abraham also says she thinks, “it’s good to be back for [daughter] Sophia’s sake and showing how our lives are to help others.”
MTV invited Abraham to “complete” the cast as it felt that “something (or, in this case, someone) was missing” in the production. The call happened mid-taping of the show, which stirred up the cast. Bookout, Lowell and Portwood were not happy as they did not expect nor want to work with Abraham because of her life choices.
“I’m not going to lie and say I was happy about it. But, I mean, it’s something that I guess people will just have to watch on the show. And it has nothing to personally do with Farrah at all. I have no hard feelings towards her whatsoever,” Bookout said in an interview with Us Weekly.
Teen Mom OG will air on March 23 on MTV.
