Teen Mom Cast vs. MTV: 15 Times Producers Screwed Them Over with Editing … or Did They?

If you're a Teen Mom fan, you know how this story goes.

A new episode airs, one of the moms or one of the dads or some other random cast member ends up looking bad in some way, and so that person hops on social media to blame MTV.

Because these people never actually behave poorly, get it? It's always MTV's fault for editing things to look that way.

We've seen Jenelle Evans use this tactic, we've seen it from Leah Messer, Amber Portwood, Kailyn Lowry — probably every single cast member has, at one point or another, pulled this stunt.

Check out the worst examples of this truly entertaining phenomenon below …

1. Jenelle Evans: Abused by David Eason?

In a recent episode of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle refused to film on a scheduled day because, as she explained in a text to a producer, she and David had been fighting. The next day, both Jenelle and David said that things were fine, and David denied fighting altogether while Jenelle stared at the floor. It gave a lot of people the creeps — like he was threatening her to stay quiet about their issues — but Jenelle has said that David simply didn’t want to talk about their problems on camera. She’s taking the matter so seriously that she’s considering quitting the show.

2. Chelsea Houska: Is Aubree Ruining Cole’s Experience?

In the episodes after Chelsea gave birth to Watson, we see Aubree acting out a little — which is understandable. But at one point, Chelsea says that Aubree’s behavior is “taking away from Cole’s experience” as a new father, and that seemed like a pretty cold remark.

However, Chelsea has said that that particular line was “taken out of context from a different convo and added in that scene for some reason.”

The reason, of course, being drama. Low blow, MTV.

3. Kailyn Lowry: Did MTV Make Isaac Cry?!

We all know that Kailyn’s oldest son, Isaac, has been struggling with her split from Javi Marroquin. In one heartbreaking scene, we see the boy crying at dinner over the divorce.

But it turns out the scene may actually have been heartbreaking in a different way than it seemed, because Kailyn tweeted after the episode that the film crew “provoked the scene with Isaac crying at dinner!!! And I lost my mind!!!!”

And who could blame her?

4. Jeremy Calvert: Deadbeat Dad?

Jeremy has threatened to quit the show perhaps more than any other cast member, mostly because — you guessed it — his alleged bad edit.

In one of his many, many fits about the show, he created a Twitter poll to guage whether or not he should quit filming.

The issue this time? A scene in which Leah’s grandmother referred to him as a “deadbeat dad.”

5. Tyler Baltierra: I’m a Good Husband and Father!

When Catelynn Lowell was dealing with the worst of her depression and anxiety, Tyler Baltierra was pretty darn insensitive, time and time again.

He once told her that he didn’t want “no heiffer for a wife,” and was often cold and distant when he needed her most.

It was hard to watch, but Tyler hopped on Twitter to explain that MTV was making him “the POS baby daddy this season” to “help the ratings,” and that they’d been splicing together bits of different scenes to fit that narrative.

6. Taylor McKinney: Pressured by Maci to Propose?

A big storyline for Maci Bookout a while back was Taylor McKinney and his apparent hesitation to propose to her, even after having having children together.

She wouldn’t let the issue go, and he frequently seemed overwhelmed by the pressure.

It was such a big part of their scenes that at one point, he tweeted that Maci was never as intent on him proposing as we saw. “Don’t get it twisted,” he wrote. “It’s a show.”

Twirlin’ Off TV: RHOA Producers Want Kenya Moore Gone With The Wind, “She Is Going To Be Phased Out”

Kenya Moore To Be Phased Off “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Over Husband’s Refusal To Film

It’s looking more and more like Kenya’s about to be a “CANNED” peach! After losing her spot on the cast trip to Barcelona, more reports have emerged that say she won’t be on the show much longer.

According to Star Magazine:

“Kenya didn’t quit, but she is being disciplined and producers brought in Eva Marcille as a supporting cast member in her absence,” an insider said.

“Producers are paying her a massive salary to share her authentic life with the viewers and she refuses to do so,” The insider added, noting that cameras were banned from her June wedding to Marc Daly. “She will be fined by not getting paid for the trip episodes,” the insider said after reports surfaced that she was kicked off the Barcelona cast vacation. “She is going to be phased out of the show.”

It’s been rumored for months now that her goose might be cooked by refusing to have her new husband film the show, and now there’s a new theory about that too.

“She’s trying to use her relationship as leverage to re-negotiate her existing contract,” an insider previously said. “The network feels as though she’s using this as a tactic to get her salary in the same ballpark as Nene.”

Kenya’s been one of the show’s biggest sources of drama. Do you really think they’ll phase her out or all these stories just meant to pressure her into doing what the network wants?

In the meantime, Kenya has been posting about her husband’s restaurant, the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas and the Obama’s anniversary — basically EVERYTHING but RHOA:

Pen Game So Fresh: The Top 10 Songwriters & Producers, Ever

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the music game goes only as far as the artists involved take it. It evolves accordingly, not because corporations and labels dictate where it should go, but because generational voices drive it where it needs to be.

Over the decades, we’ve witnessed some of the most groundbreaking and soul shaking sounds, rhythms, and words produced by talent who have defined genres either with the stroke of their pen or the mastery of their instrument. In some rare cases using both.

Report: ‘Space Jam 2’ producers contact J.R. Smith concerning film role

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James may soon have a teammate by his side for one of his upcoming film ventures.

Producers of “Space Jam 2,” which is reportedly in the early stages of development, have reached out to Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith concerning a potential role in the film, according to TMZ Sports.

Smith’s representative, Daniel Hazan, told the site that the producers reached out to him weeks ago to ask if the 30-year-old would like to join the cast.

“There is mutual interest,” Hazan said. “It all depends on the deal.”

Justin Lin of “Fast and Furious 6” and “Star Trek Beyond” fame is slated to direct, with a script currently being written up.

While James is slated to star as the lead in the movie, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports that a deal has yet to be struck between the two parties.

#SonyIsDroppingDrLukeParty Begins Amid Producer’s Rumored Split With Label [Photos]

Dr. Luke’s days with Sony are reportedly be numbered. Amid lawsuit allegations that he drugged and raped Kesha early in her career and the backlash that has followed, Sony is rumored to be cutting the producer’s contract short.

Reports The Wrap:

Sony Music is expected to end its working relationship with controversial producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald a year ahead of his contract’s expiration, knowledgeable individuals have told TheWrap.

The output deal has become a public relations headache for the company since pop star Kesha’s sexual abuse allegations against Gottwald have resulted in a nasty court battle — and a groundswell of support for the singer from influential fellow artists like Adele, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson.

A Sony Music spokesperson declined to comment on the matter. Representatives for Gottwald did not return TheWrap’s requests for comment.

“There is no contest. Kesha has no case in regards to her contract but they can’t afford the Adeles of the world out in the streets calling the label unsupportive,” one individual familiar with upper management’s thinking told TheWrap. “The fact that this hasn’t already been taken care of with Luke is confusing, especially for people in the building.”

Insiders within Luke’s circle claim the story is totally false and Sony is riding for him. According to TMZ, “Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony. His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony, and this has never come up.”

42-year-old Luke has denied Kesha’s allegations, as women in the music industry and fans, continue to come to her defense. Curiously, Luke posted an old story about Lady Gaga as proof that Kesha is lying, yet Gaga has voiced support for her.

Social media reacted to Luke’s allegedly forthcoming departure with a #SonyIsDroppingDrLukeParty.

Hit the flip for tweets.
