Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaskan governor and John McCain‘s 2008 running mate Sarah Palin, has decided to walk away from TV fame. In a post to her Instagram on Tuesday, Palin announced that she was leaving Teen Moms OG, an MTV spin-off show she starred in last season. The show followed now-adult women who had been teen mothers including Palin, who made headlines back in 2008 when she got pregnant at 17 in the midst of her mother’s campaign. Now 27, Palin is the mother to three children – her son Tripp, who was born in 2008, and two children with her now ex-husband Dakota Meyer. Her season on Teen Moms OG focused on her and Meyer’s relationship as it came crashing to an end. They got married in 2016.

In the emotional post, Palin explained that the show “took away my peace.” She reaffirmed her commitment to God and brushed off the money the show was paying her, but nevertheless wished the best to her co-stars.

Back in December, Palin posted a similar rant against the show to her Instagram page, berating the series for showing a “falsified” version of her life. In that post, she called the show “Farrah Abraham / Jerry Springer BS.”

If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today – let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my “life” ….. my babies, my family, my close friends – they know the TRUTH. I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life. @mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months – but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama. Every week is a continued disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emo on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV.
