Teen Mom OG star Gary Shirley is giving his fans what they want: a cooking show. The dad-of-two posted a trailer for his new culinary endeavor on YouTube, which features him making lemonade, slicing strawberries, cooking bacon and more.
It took Shirley more than a year to complete the show.
“Okay, I know a lot of people have been asking for cooking videos and recipes. We started this project over a year ago but now at a point where I wanted to share it with you all,” he wrote on Facebook. “A very special thanks to @brian_hedger for all your hard work and to my family.”
“(This is Just for fun, “I’m not a pro just 4 entertainment if not for you for me! Lmbo)
There is a link on my Instagram. You can also copy and paste this YouTube blah blah gibberish below!
“Also for my Facebook friends there is a link on my public page, or copy and paste it below as above,” he continued. “Thanks for all the support, have fun please.”
The Native American added a humble description to his teaser on YouTube. “This has been in the works for a while and your request has not fallen on deaf ears. Join me along with my family in my passion for cooking,” he wrote. “It should be fun and very relaxed. I am by no means a professional chef.”
The MTV personality didn’t reveal when the show would officially debut.
Shirley is the father of two girls. He shares 13-year-old Leah with his ex-girlfriend Amber Portwood and 6-year-old daughter Emilee with his wife Kristina Anderson.
Anderson was also happy to announce that her husband’s cooking series was ready to debut.
“The wait is finally over. Those who know @itsgarytime will know he LOVES to cook and bake,” she wrote. “Follow him as he shares some of his favorites.”
She also thanked her videographer, Brian Hedger. “A special THANK YOU to @brian_hedger who spent countless hours recording, editing and preparing these videos for sharing. Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe to YouTube to see more,” she wrote.
Shirley experienced a minor setback in March 2022 when he required surgery on both hands – bilateral endoscopic carpal tunnel.
Not only does Shirley have the support of his family and friends, but his fans also look forward to watching him prepare delicious meals.
