On the heels of Maci Bookout’s successful post-Teen Mom MTV special, Being Maci, the network has reportedly decided to give each of the original Teen Moms their own one-hour shows.
According to our friend over at The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, two productions sources confirmed the girls are filming catch-up specials. Each show will likely follow the Being (Name) format, which means you should keep an eye out for Being Amber, Being Catelynn and Being Farrah specials.
This is exciting news, if not altogether surprising: It was a poorly kept secret that Amber Portwood, Gary Shirley and Leah Shirley filmed some kind of special when Amber was released from prison last month.
Farrah Abraham’s dad, Michael Abraham, then teased his daughter’s special via a Facebook post last week.
“This coming weekend we will be busy filming with family and friends… For a surprise for everyone early next year! I can’t tell you yet but you guys will see Farrah, Sophia, Debra and I and ‘friends’ on a special show soon!”
Farrah also shared a picture of Sophia wearing a mic.
Then there’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, who were the least inhibited about revealing they are filming with MTV: Tyler shared the following picture yesterday, adding, “What’s a day without cameras all up in your face? Can’t wait to be back on your guys TV screen soon #MTV #KeepAnEyeOut”
Catelynn and Tyler’s adoption specialist, Dawn Baker, also shared the news on Twitter.
“If you’ve missed @CatelynnLowell @TylerBaltierra you’ll be happy that they are filming this week w/MTV,” she said last week, adding today that she is filming with them.
The Ashley’s sources say the shows will air “early next year.” We’ll keep you posted!
