Is 'Teen Mom OG' Scripted? Bristol Palin Slams MTV for 'Inaccuracies and False Narratives'

Bristol Palin isn't too pleased with how her storyline is playing out on Teen Mom OG. The reality star blasted MTV for its false portrayal of her life in an Instagram post on Monday.

Palin's addition to the Season 8 cast was revealed in July, just a few weeks before the mother-of-three announced her divorce from husband Dakota Meyer, a military veteran. Much of her appearance on the show so far has been based on her fallout with Meyer, which Palin vented about on social media.

"If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn't be here today - let's be real. I've stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my 'life' ..... my babies, my family, my close friends - they know the TRUTH," Palin wrote alongside a photograph of her three kids—9-year-old Tripp, Sailor, 2, and 18-month-old Atlee.

Palin's biggest problem with the MTV reality series was that it barely gave any positive coverage of her role as a working mom or the things she deems most important. "I'm a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday [sic] to give my kids a pretty great life," she continued.

She added: "@mtv doesn't want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don't want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real-life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it's simply not true."

Palin noted some moments captured weren't her finest, however, she disagreed with the production's constant negative portrayal of her.

"Don't get me wrong - I've said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months - but the life I've built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama," she wrote. "Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I've kept quiet for too long about it. Don't believe everything you see on TV."

Palin's ex-husband shared similar sentiments about the show just weeks before Palin's post. "What's sad is that @Viacom has turned @TeenMom into a trailer trash Real Housewives instead of showing what the true struggles of parenting are," he wrote on Twitter on December 4. "I'll bring my VLOG back and show you what single parenting looks like since they can't seem to figure it out."
