This week’s episode of Teen Mom OG featured one of the most surreal scenes in the franchise’s history when Farrah Abraham got a text from Jenelle Eason letting her know that Farrah’s mom, Debra “Debz OG” Danielsen, had invited Jenelle’s ex-husband Courtland Rogers to her wedding. Farrah was upset and did some serious trash talking about “habitual criminal” Courtland to her dad Michael and to Debra. That, in turn, upset Courtland and his wife Lindsey, who both took to Twitter to defend themselves and hurl unpleasantries back at Farrah.
There’s no other way to tell this story than with a complete recap, because if you missed the episode, you won’t have a clue what the heck Courtland is so upset about. If you did watch the episode and don’t want to relive Farrah’s smack talking, you can scroll on down for Courtland and Lindsey’s reactions.
It all started with Farrah’s very first scene in the episode in which she is talking with her dad Michael. “When we got back from Italy, Jenelle from Teen Mom 2 reached out and told me that one of her exes is invited to my mom’s wedding,” Farrah says. “She for some reason texted me that Courtland is going to my mom’s wedding.”
Michael seems perplexed by the notion. “Where’d she meet him from? Where did she meet this person?”
Farrah continues on about her message from Jenelle. “But she was like, ‘Courtland is a criminal, this, this, this, and this.'”
At this point MTV blurs the space/time continuum and shows an extended clip from Teen Mom 2 in which Jenelle talks to a gal pal about her whirlwind courtship (Courtlandship?), marriage, and arrest with Courtland. I should note that Jenelle’s relationship and marriage with Courtland apparently came and went during the Teen Mom 2 filming “off season,” so viewers never really got to see much of him on the show.
Eventually we are back in Austin with Farrah, Michael, Sophia, a cute Pomeranian, some chickens, and a miniature horse. “Jenelle obviously feels that there’s an issue there, that’s why she contacted you,” Michael says. “I mean, your mom has a sweepstakes, is going to invite fans, blah blah-blah blah-blah,” he adds as he waves his arms around. He is, of course, referencing the fact that Debra had a social media contest for her fans and gave away wedding invitations as a prize.
Michael then brings up the fact that Farrah’s Teen Mom OG co-star (and Teen Mom Reunion Brawl adversary) Amber Portwood was also invited to attend. He concludes by saying that these unexpected wedding invitations by Debra are “all about attention.”
“I think that’s pathetic,” says Farrah, “and that’s not what a wedding’s about. I mean, honestly whatever she wants her wedding to be — which is a three-ring circus — I’ll send a clown, but, like, I’m not going to be there or my daughter. And I don’t want to be around anyone who is an issue.”
Farrah continues: “I’m not even a criminal, but I have people who try to condemn me or make me out to be a bad person every day, so if anyone understands, it’s me, but and now, from what Jenelle is telling me, horrible — horribleness, I don’t think that person’s changed and I still think she’s in denial about that.”
“But why does he have to be there?” Michael asks, still perplexed. “He’s no friend of hers.”
It’s clear at this point that Farrah is not a fan of Courtland, but what she had to say about him specifically was relatively tame and mostly referenced what Jenelle had told her about him.
Later in the episode, Farrah calls her mom Debra on Facetime and confronts her about inviting Courtland. I will step out of the way and present their conversation with only a couple superfluous sentences edited out.
FARRAH: So I was just wondering what was going on with you inviting someone who Jenelle has been married to who’s a habitual criminal, unsafe for kids, and you’re having that around your grandkids, basically?
DEBRA: Well, first of all Farrah, God sees all of us the same way, and if somebody has changed their life and if somebody’s a good person, then nobody can condemn or judge anybody, just like —
FARRAH: You know what, mom? I’m not even a f**king criminal and I changed my life probably so much more than anyone I’ve ever seen changes theirs, but hell, criminals still condemn me f**king every day and act like they’re more of your best friend than I’ve ever seen. I mean, I’ve been just seeing such fake behavior that I think that’s what criminals are good at, faking behavior — and then showing up at your wedding.
DEBRA: You know what? Anybody who has to call other people criminals are nothing but afraid of facing reality that everybody sins.
FARRAH: Mom, did you know that they’re warning you and protecting you because they’ve had some horrific experiences?
DEBRA: Well guess what? I have two armed security people on hand. They’ll make sure nobody’s gonna be having any problems. This is a safe zone, and it’s gonna be safe.
FARRAH: So mom, why don’t you shut up so you can un-confuse your brain?
DEBRA: I’m trying to straighten you out on it!
FARRAH: You’re not straightening anyone out. You need to straighten your own self out.
DEBRA: I have nothing against anybody. I like Jenelle. I believe in Jenelle.
FARRAH: Oh, so why didn’t you invite Jenelle to your wedding then?
***Debra says nothing as music begins to play***
FARRAH: Oh, it went silent. It went silent ’cause you’re just — you gotta go plan this s**t.
You will notice that Farrah stepped up her criticism of Courtland from the very beginning of her conversation with Debra, referring to him as a “habitual criminal” who is “unsafe for kids.” It was this scene that really set Courtland and his wife Lindsey off.
Courtland not only goes after Farrah — as an adult film star, a bad parent, a person with a DUI arrest, and someone who admitted to drug abuse in her book — but he also talks at length about his friendship with Debra, which has apparently been a thing for a while. I’m going to let Courtland and Lindsey speak for themselves. I have trimmed some tweets, and I’m sure there were some that were deleted before I could grab them, but I think you will have to agree that there is still plenty enough here to get an accurate feel for their thoughts about Farrah. I’ve grouped them together with a batch of Courtland’s tweets followed by some of Lindsey’s, and concluding with more of Courtland’s.
I will kick things off with Courtland’s tweet and Debra’s response from way back in September when he revealed that he was invited to her wedding:
When did u ever meet me in person? How the HELL do u know who I am or have ANYYY RIGHT to say ANYTHING about me? I can hear it now “he’s just tryin to stay relevant” ?♂️ ur blind! ur mom HAS BEEN a FRIEND OF MINE FOR THE LONGEST! LET HER LIVE HER LIFE #UnlikeHowURunurkids
