The 31-year-old singer -- who has been embroiled in a public feud with his older brother, Nick Carter, over the past few weeks -- joined his mom, Jane Carter, for the 100th episode celebration of WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp on Thursday. The pair spoke with ET's Brice Sander about their experience on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition and some of the drama that's reared its head in recent weeks.
"There is nothing fake, there is nothing scripted about this show," Aaron said. "[And] there is nothing fake or scripted about me."
For Jane, appearing on the show was a chance to reconnect with her embattled son after having drifted apart over the tumultuous last few years, and she said it felt like it "was meant to be."
"We weren't really talking that much. We talked a little bit, but we didn't really know each other anymore," Jane reflected. "This helped us to get to know each other again, and it was wonderful."
