Getting a break from daddy duty! Corey Simms, Jo Rivera, Nathan Griffith and Gary Shirley from Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 are starring together in a new special called A Weekend at Corey’s.
In a preview for the upcoming show, the young fathers meet up at Simms’ West Virginia pad to get some guy time away from their exes and kids.
Noticeably absent from the group? Chelsea Houska’s ex Adam Lind, with whom she shares daughter Aubree, 7; Maci Bookout’s ex-fiancé, Ryan Edwards, with whom she shares son Bentley, 8; and Catelynn Lowell’s husband, Tyler Baltierra, with whom she shares daughter Novalee, 23 months.
Even though not all the young fathers could participate, those who did join in were more than excited to shoot the breeze with Simms, 27, who shares 6-year-old twins Aleeah and Aliannah with ex-wife Leah Messer.
“I called [executive producer] Morgan [J. Freeman], and I was like, ‘Yeah, we need to do something more outdoorsy — I’m tired of doing Teen Mom.’ [I want to do] guy stuff,” the TV personality says in the sneak peek. “He was like, ‘OK,’ and then he called and was like, ‘OK, yeah, I got approved for a special. We’re gonna have some guys come in.'”
Simms adds, “That way we can do our deal. It’s more of our, you know, we’re in control of it.”
That’s when Griffith, who shares son Kaiser, 2, with Jenelle Evans, pipes in. “I think the guys bring the drama to the show!” he quips.
However, Rivera, who shares son Isaac, 6, with ex Kailyn Lowry, is looking forward to a few drama-free days with his male comrades. “We’re here, now we can have a good f–king time!” he excitedly declares. “Let’s have some drinks, cook some food — that sounds like a plan.”
