Farrah Abraham and Kail Lowry face off over red carpet looks

As some of you know, there was a “Very Special Episode” of Teen Mom OG on Sunday night, just ahead of the live airing of the MTV Television & Movie awards show. A few Teen Mom stars were on hand to help make the red carpet event ‘more classier.’ But as usual…Farrah Abraham quickly became embroiled in controversy and petty fighting with her co-stars.

Let’s take a look at the gals’ red carpet looks first.

 

 

Amber Portwood

Amber wore a fitted, sleeveless, full-length ivory-looking gown that looked suspiciously like a tacky wedding dress. It was accentuated with a keyhole neckline to show off her new boobages and a pair of silver hoop earrings, because you can’t have a real catfight without someone taking off their earrings and handing them to a friend.

In this case, Amber’s friend was Kail Lowry. The pair were seen on Snapchat hanging out in a hotel room the night before the event.

As you can see, Kail was wearing a full-length red gown with 1/2 sleeves. The dress was very fitted and showed off her 7 (?) month baby bump. TBH there’s really not much to snark about here. Moving on.

Farrah Abraham

Last week, we saw Farrah and her whatever-he-is Simon Saran shopping for traditional Indian clothing. Fans speculated that the pair was invited to a wedding of one of Simon’s friends, during which guests of all backgrounds are encouraged to embrace the traditional Indian sari. As it turns out, Farrah was actually shopping for her red carpet look. She claimed it was an attempt to “bring culture to the red carpet.”

To her credit, I had to look up what this is called, so consider me more cultured. Because my instinct is sari, but Indian news sources (yes, India is actually interested in her attempt to bring ‘Bollywood’ to the masses) have called it a lehenga. Whatever it is, Farrah went all out with the Henna tattoos on her hands and neck and a bindi (the jewel on the forehead). This look sent Farrah straight to the bottom of “Worst Dressed” lists with critics saying this was a clear example of “cultural appropriation.”

Now onto the dramas!

Kail Lowry said in an interview with The Dirty that the MTV awards show was “not a costume party,” an apparent slight at Farrah. To her credit, Kail tried to say she didn’t see any “cultural appropriation” in this, but does Fare-Bear take shit lying down?

Farrah shot back saying the following about Kail: “Was she even invited? Her look of being pregnant has been done and is old. Stop getting knocked up by randoms.”

Well, the timing of that quip was pretty bad for Kail. Over the weekend, she snapped several photos and videos with another man who came to Los Angeles with her for the awards show. In one photo, the man can be seen lying in a hotel bed with her. This man was not Baby Daddy #3, Chris Lopez, and fans were quick to speculate that Kail was sleeping around with yet another new man. Make of that what you will.

So far, there has been no criticism of Farrah’s red carpet appearance from the Amber camp. Maybe Good Ol’ Amber is finally learning what it means to be a real woman.

So there you have it. The latest drama llama fest in the Teen Mom world! I’m trying to catch y’all up so stay tuned the rest of this week!

    Okay let me start by saying I can’t stand Farrah as a person, I think she’s a despicable human being and I am not trying to stand up for her.
    And I’m not trying to be antagonistic, just genuinely want to learn more. What is ‘cultural appropriation’? I looked it up and it seems to be an American thing (I’miss not American) about not taking things from other cultures that define who they are or something. I’m just curious as to what counts as cultural appropriation. A lot of people all over Asia and Africa tend to dress in more Western style clothes and increasing numbers of brides in China are choosing white, traditionally Western dresses for their weddings (rather than the traditional red), is this also cultural appropriation?

      Also neither my husband nor I are Scottish- though we have been living here for 10 years- and at our wedding 2 years ago we had a ceilidh (a traditional Scottish group dance) and no one said anything about being offended. Was this cultural appropriation?

        I would also like to know more I too live in Scotland and haven’t really heard of cultural appropriation

        “Cultural Appropriation” is just another way for people in our country to be offended about something that doesn’t really affect them in the grand scheme of things.

        Remember, the US is a country where if you are not 100% politically correct all of the time, then you are an evil person who should spend the rest of your life isolated and alone so you don’t accidentally offend someone by wearing the wrong type of hat or something.

      Ahem, y’all:

      Cultural appropriation is taking bits of another person’s culture for personal gain. In Farrah’s case, for fashion. She likely doesn’t know much about Indian culture (she might, as she’s dating Simon off and on). From what I know, you’re supposed to wear Indian attire for weddings – but not to look cute.

      Henna tattoos are actually very cultural for Indian families and I learned that they like do them at/before their weddings or some shit as some deeply cultured tradition. I can’t speak on shit much bc I ALSO don’t know shit. But I DO know that I shouldn’t go to the park and get a henna tattoo bc that would be me taking bits of their culture for my personal gain without understanding the cultural sentiment.

      I feel like it’s a thing when you have a bunch of different ethnicities and cultures living together who no one can quite figure out how to coexist without offending or oppressing each other. I.e.: America (I’m including South American countries in this as well bc whew! They have some culture issues down there too!).

      And as much as I despise Farrah, it doesn’t surprise me that Kailyn wouldn’t see her attire as cultural appropriation. This is the girl that adopts black culture regularly (but actually might know more than the average person bc she does go to an HBCU?)

      I live in mexico and the cultural appropriation is very unfamiliar. In my country using traditional indigenous clothes or jewlery is seen as something positive. People even get married on mayan ceremonies without being mayan themselves. So i found this a bit confusing

        I feel like an important aspect of borrowing someone else’s culture is that appropriation is done without understanding of recognition of the culture it’s being borrowed from, and for personal gain.

        As a black America, I imagine it’d be a little strange if I did a mayan themed wedding bc I thought it was cute, no? I’m not Mayan. I don’t know mayans I don’t understand the value of the rituals. I just simplified shit I don’t understand for cute wedding pictures.

          1. I hate my million and 1 autocorrect typos. I hope you understand this
          2. Let me add that when people “borrow” someone else’s culture without truly understanding it, they often do it wrong. Like women wearing Native American head which is designed for me. Or Kim K calling cornrows boxer braids

            That’s a very good way to put it. I think the lack of understanding is key. To Farrah’s credit, she did all of this with Simon’s help, so I’m sure she learned a little bit about it, which is kind of impressive lol

      Sorry I wasn’t more clear on what that term meant! It is very hard to define, that’s the problem. What’s funny is the first time I remember hearing about cultural appropriation was when it was trendy for college parties to feature costumes. So somebody would go get sloppy drunk while dressed as a Native American (who have, as a culture, notoriously struggled with alcoholism) or whatever, and people would find it crude. Now, though, the term definitely seems more prevalent There’s pushback now as we debate the differences between cultural appropriation and cultural appreciation. Lots of different viewpoints on this!

      Here is the definition I stole from Wikipedia: “Cultural elements which may have deep meaning to the original culture may be reduced to “exotic” fashion by those from the dominant culture.[7][8][13] Kjerstin Johnson has written that, when this is done, the imitator, “who does not experience that oppression is able to ‘play’, temporarily, an ‘exotic’ other, without experiencing any of the daily discriminations faced by other cultures.”

      The term “fetishizing” is used a lot in these discussions, too.

    I looked up cultural appropriation, because yeah it’s hard to define.
    ‘According to critics of the practice, cultural (mis)appropriation differs from acculturation, assimilation, or cultural exchange in that the “appropriation” or “misappropriation” refers to the adoption of these cultural elements in a colonial manner: elements are copied from a minority culture by members of a dominant culture, and these elements are used outside of their original cultural context—sometimes even against the expressly stated wishes of representatives of the originating culture.’

    Farrah is incredibly clueless about Indian culture, yet she’s using it to “bring culture to the red carpet” (WUT). I think cultural appropriation is mostly an American thing because we are well known for stealing cultural effects from others and not treating the people well. Blah I wish I could be more eloquent about it, but that’s all I’ve got right now.
