Last night, the Twittersphere was buzzing about the disappearance of beloved floor-sitting Teen Mom OG producer Heather Walsh. Heather worked with both Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham over the course of the past few seasons.
Now Simon Saran has come out to say that Heather was fired because of Amber. Shots fired!
An MTV source told The Ashley that Heather had violated several rules set to keep a professional boundary between producers and ‘talent.’ The source only named one of these violations, saying that Heather had spent the night at Farrah’s house in Texas. However, Farrah’s boyfriend/partner/whatever-he-is was quick to shoot down this story.
“Heather was fired because Amber threatened to quit the show. Then MTV worked out a “deal” with her since she couldn’t handle the heat. The deal was Amber stays and Heather goes. A way for Them to hide the truth about Amber and what goes on behind closed doors.”
Now, of course, Simon and Amber have had a well known beef going back to last year. But there is some truth to this statement. Amber threatened to quit the show last December (read more on this here), Tweeting that she didn’t feel “safe” anymore and that there were people who had “continuously hidden things from the network.” Amber mysteriously came around when MTV satisfied some unknown demands. Fans speculate that the “Being Matt” special was part of the demand as an attempt to show Matt in a better light, and now Simon suggests that firing Heather was another demand.
Amber has now denied this accusation on Twitter, saying that she would never do that to Heather and turning it back on Farrah and Simon. “Why would I do that to her,” Amber tweeted. “I mean I’m an ass sometimes but I wouldn’t really want her fired. Maybe if Simon and Farrah didn’t always party then she would have been fine. That’s all I’m going to say…”
There’s a whole lot to speculate on here, but I’ll leave it to you lovely commenters to piece together the puzzle here!
