On February 8, a new report revealed that MTV has allegedly narrowed their search down to just two women, neither of which is Abraham’s sister, Ashley, who was rumored to be joining the series’ cast in recent weeks.
“They are planning to pay her around $3,000 an episode to take the fourth spot on ‘Teen Mom OG,’” a source told The Ashley. “That would obviously be significantly less than the other girls make. It is not a done deal yet, but the consensus is that Mackenzie Edwards will get the spot. Recently, they’ve been filming her life with Ryan for Maci [Bookout]‘s segment almost more than Maci’s life. Plus, she was a teenage mother so it kind of makes sense.”
In recent months, Standifer has hinted that she and Edwards would soon be sharing more of their lives with the cameras. Standifer teased the idea on her Instagram page months ago, stating that their new venture would provide more insight to fans about the true dynamic between her and Edwards.
As for the competition, former Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie McKee is also said to be in the running.
According to the report, McKee was one of the possible choices when MTV was hunting for a fifth girl for Teen Mom 2 but ultimately lost the role to her former co-star Briana DeJesus. Now, because her mother, Angie Doutit, was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, producers have allegedly become more interested in her story.
“There’s a production team that’s been going down to Oklahoma to film Mackenzie over the past few weeks,” a crew member told The Ashley. “Right now, they are planning to use that footage to do a ‘Teen Mom’ special. It will likely be ‘Being Mackenzie’ but that hasn’t been totally confirmed yet.”
While The Ashley was able to confirm that both girls have filmed in recent weeks, they noted that it will likely be Standifer who lands the role of Abraham’s replacement on Teen Mom OG.
