MTV’s ‘Teen Mom’ Was Filming On GR’s West Side Sunday
If you watch 'Teen Mom' on MTV, you may see a friend or at least a familiar Grand Rapids location in an upcoming episode.
Sunday evening, MTV camera crews were following around Cory Wharton from MTV’s ‘Teen Mom’ and they stopped into Fratelli's Kitchen & Bar for a bit.
We had an idea something cool was coming, because around noon on Sunday, Fratelli’s posted on their Facebook page,
(A graphic that said, “Do you want to be on national TV?”)
Well, do you??! Come in tonight between 6:30 - 8:00 pm and you’ll get the opportunity!! We can’t release all the deets but we promise you won’t be disappointed! #MTV
Just after 7:30 pm, a Fratelli's employee posted a live video on the eatery's Facebook page of a couple of camera crews filming inside the restaurant.
Then at almost 9 pm, the posted a second video of Cory and friends talking to owner Vincenzo “Enzo” Cannizzo. As you can hear in the video, Cory and crew say the bartenders were good and they'd definitely be back. Fratelli's also posted that the MTV filming experience went great.
We’ve not got a lot more information on why they were in town, although Cory is from Grand Rapids, but what were they doing?? Also, when’s it going to air..??
It looks like you might need to stop into Fratelli’s Kitchen & Bar and ask. They’re located on Bridge St. next to Butcher’s Union (442 Bridge St. NW, Grand Rapids)
