The decision to bring Farrah Abraham back to Teen Mom has been about as controversial as the reality star herself.

After Farrah sold a sex tape, started attending porn conventions, began stripping and made sex toys molded from her own body parts, a lot of people felt that she was too much into the adult world to return to the popular MTV show, especially knowing kids could be watching.

Originally they had decided not to include Farrah in the reboot of the show, for essentially those reasons, but the producers later shocked the rest of the cast and Teen Mom fans when they changed their mind and brought her on, anyway.

In an interview with TV Guide, the show's executive producer, Morgan J. Freeman, explains the decision to bring Farrah back on.

When they asked about why they had decided against having her and then reversed the decision, Morgan said, "Initially in bringing it back, that was the decision. ... I do think her priorities and the things she was focused on did not quite fit in at the time."

"We sort of started them at different points," he continued. "We didn't have to jump into their stories at the exact same time. Just looking at those three stories, ultimately, there was a feeling that something was missing and having a fourth perspective - the four different journeys and four different sets of consequences, all stemming from Teen Mom - that was the right way to go."

In a new sneak peek for the show, we see the rest of the cast when they heard the news and Maci Bookout seemed the most angry, telling the crew they might as well leave. In a later interview with E! News, she explains why she doesn't think it's appropriate for her son to be on a show with Farrah. More about that here. No word yet on whether or not Maci is actually quitting over it.

Do you guys think Farrah should have been brought back or would you prefer that they just made it with Catelynn, Amber and Maci?
