Teen Mom has been bashed heavily in the press of late for setting a bad example and making teenage pregnancy look glamorous because if you get pregnant, you will get your own TV show.
Obviously that is radical judgment but it turns out that Kim Kardashian, a fellow reality star, is also not a fan of the show. She recently wrote on her blog:
It seems that shows like ‘Teen Mom’ are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!”
Of course, the girls of the show do not see it that way. Teen Mom Amber Portwood responded, “There’s actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down.”
Do you watch Teen Mom? Agree with Kim or Amber?
