TEEN Mom 2 producers have been “FIRED” after the show’s ratings hit a new low.
The behind-the-scenes shakeup comes as viewers complain the cast aren’t sharing their real lives onscreen.
The Ashley reported on Friday that higher-ups at MTV have fired some of Teen Mom 2’s well known producers due to the show’s low ratings.
An insider told the outlet that the producers have been axed due to the network feeling that they’re not doing their jobs, which is to get authentic stories from the cast.
The production source said: “The production company recently got in a lot of trouble because the ratings of the show are so bad.”
The ratings for the July 1 episode of Teen Mom 2 were underwhelming compared to the viewership the show used to bring in.
Additionally, the second half of season 10's numbers have remained low since the season premiere.
Teen Mom 2 currently stars Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, Briana DeJesus, Jade Cline and Ashley Jones.
Original star Chelsea Houska- who is the mother to Aubree, 11, Watson, four, Layne, two, and Walker, five months- quit the show in October.
The 29-year-old was replaced by Young and Pregnant alum Ashley, 24, who share three-year-old daughter Holly with fiancé Bar Smith.
While fans may not be impressed with the drama onscreen, the stars have a lot going on behind the scenes.
Just days ago, The Sun exclusively revealed that Kailyn is suing her Teen Mom 2 costar Briana for claiming she "beat up" her baby daddy Chris Lopez.
Kailyn claimed Briana "asserted that Lowry physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry's sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez's mother."
The mother of four’s legal team claimed her comments are false and were made "for the purpose of causing Lowry harm… Defendant used Lowry to gain additional media attention for herself."
Kailyn filed the lawsuit after she was slammed for not filming about her arrest in September for allegedly "punching" Chris.
In Kailyn's lawsuit – filed on June 25 – the reality star went into her long-standing feud with Briana which was sparked when she joined Teen Mom 2 in 2017.
Kailyn claimed Briana "has a history of making false public statements regarding Lowry’s family life,” including when she allegedly responded to a Twitter user “[Lowry] gets beat the f**k up by Chris in front of her kids.”
The TV personality also mentioned when Briana’s sister, Brittany, “physically assaulted” her while filming a reunion episode in August 2018.
The court papers claimed: “Defendant's conduct towards Lowry, including pursuing Lowry's former husband and Mr. Lopez, is so egregious that in September 2020, one social media influencer created a video titled, “Is Briana DeJesus OBSESSED With Kail Lowry?!
“In this video, the influencer called Defendant’s conduct toward Lowry 'creepy,' 'pathetic,' and 'dusty.'"
