‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’ Cast: Who’s Returning for the New Show?
Things are about to get real on MTV’s new Teen Mom spinoff. Teen Mom Family Reunion, which premieres Jan. 11, brings together some fan-favorite (and perhaps not-so-favorite) cast members from Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2. The cameras follow along as they enjoy some time away from their kids while also unpacking old drama.
So, who RSVPed to the big reunion? Here’s the rundown of the Teen Mom Family Reunion cast.
Farrah Abraham makes her return to MTV in the new ‘Teen Mom’ spinoff
MTV has promised that Teen Mom Family Reunion will feature “surprise guests past and present.” The identity of one of those guests has already been revealed: controversial original Teen Mom cast member Farrah Abraham.
MTV fired Abraham from Teen Mom OG in 2017 because of her work in the adult entertainment industry. Now, she’s been welcomed back to the network for the new Teen Mom spinoff. But not all of the other women are impressed when she makes her appearance.
“Who the f*** invited Farrah?” Teen Mom 2 alum Ashley Jones asks in a teaser for the show (via Twitter).
‘Teen Mom OG’ stars Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood appear on ‘Teen Mom Family Reunion’
In addition to a guest appearance from Abraham, Teen Mom Family Reunion also features Teen Mom OG stars Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, and Cheyenne Floyd as regular cast members.
Bookout said she was looking forward to getting to know some of the other moms from the show who she hadn’t met.
“We’ll finally be able to put an actual person to the name, and the face, and the social media account, really,” she said in a clip shared on Twitter. “We’re going to get to know each other on a personal level, that’s for sure.”
For Portwood, appearing on the show was a chance to build relationships with other Teen Mom alums.
“I think this reunion will make our bond stronger just by understanding that we all have something in common,” she said. “But we all are very different.”
Jade Cline and Leah Messer from ‘Teen Mom 2’ are also in the new show
Several other Teen Mom 2 alums will also appear in Teen Mom Family Reunion. In addition to Jones, Jade Cline, Leah Messer, and Briana DeJesus have joined the cast.
Jones admits she’s had conflict with some of her fellow cast members in the past, especially Cline. But she says she didn’t come to the reunion to stir up drama.
“I did not come to fight,” she tells Floyd in a clip (via Twitter). “I could have fought at home.”
But Jones’ husband Bar Smith isn’t convinced the women will be able to keep things cordial for long, especially when there’s alcohol involved.
“It’s about to turn up, bro,” he says in a confessional. “I think it’s literally like dropping Mentos into a Coca-Cola bottle.”
Teen Mom Family Reunion premieres Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
