So it appears that MTV is going to continue its grand plan to shed light on the epic social problem of teen pregnancies by continuing to glorify pregnant teens, giving them a hefty check, and making them pseudo-celebrities. It's been working thus far. I mean, just look at how mature Farrah Abraham is thanks to the network's influence! Of course, actual intelligent people who are touted with research on such subjects are out to prove me wrong.
According to MTV's Remote Control, economists from Wellesley College and the University of Maryland have determined that 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom have led to a reduction in teen pregnancy by 5.7 percent, or about 20,000 births every year since the first show premiered in 2009. If you want to get super technical, that's one less birth by a teen every half hour. I guess that would explain why the network has announced another season which will follow twelve new pregnant teens.
Congrats are in order! Teen Mom 2 starChelsea Houskabought a house! Chelsea, aka the Teen Mom with her head screwed on straight, shared the photo of her new house on Facebook this afternoon. Chelsea shared, "Officially a homeowner!"
Our writer Melissa noted "not surprised the house is burnt orange, her favorite color!"
Clearly Chelsea is making sure to secure her finances before those MTV checks dry up. She seems to be sensible with her money – she's even still driving the same car! Chelsea is also one of the few out of all the Teen Mom stars who works in the real world, outside of the show and focuses on being an awesome mom to her cutie patootie Aubree.
Last week, a "production source" claimed, "There is no season 6 of Teen Mom 2 – season 5 is the girls' last season. They want to end with high ratings."
Then a second source reported that the current season of Teen Mom 2 will be shown in two parts — 5A (currently airing) and 5B (currently filming) – and then it's lights out for Kail, Leah, Jenelle, and Chelsea.
On last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, relationships were put to the test and bacon caused a marital breakdown.
Leah Calvert has made nagging and whining a full-time job. Usually I like Leah – aside from that mop of crazy she insists is hair (we don't believe you, member of the Dolly Pardon Wig Club!) – but last night she was working my last nerve. Look girl from WV, you can't have you pepperoni roll and eat it too!
Five minutes after the twins go to Corey Simms' for his weekend, Jeremy surprises Leah by letting her know he's headed to PA to work for a couple weeks. Leah is not happy. She tells Corey his job makes her feel like a single mother and that while he's gone she gets really overwhelmed. She's also frustrated that he doesn't validate her feelings by listening to an extended whiny-fest about how haaaaard lyyyyyyfe eees when he's gone. She thinks they should go to counseling to strengthen their marriage, but Jeremy is against it. He ain't payin' nobody his hard-earned money to tell him what's wrong with him.
Farrah Abraham, who's forever promoting her coast-to-coast appearances at Night Clubs and Gentleman's Clubs, shared the above photo from the SXSW festival in Austin on Instagram yesterday. As usual, the picture riled up the former Teen Mom star's critics, who left countless "bad mom" and "never with your child" comments.
Farrah lashed out at her haters, insisting she's a "damn good" mom to Sophia, late last night. "Happy Saint Patty's Day," she wrote. "I had an amazing day with my BooBooSophia. That picture I previously uploaded was from about a week ago so for all you people saying I'm never with my daughter – I am."
Farrah Abraham has released a new single titled Blowin. BWAHAHAHA No, really. That's the name of the song – as in, she's blowin' all her bullies away.
“I think all of the bully types I deal with who are determined to be against me in my life,” explainsFarrah. “I want others to see they don’t need to be a follower or conform to what others think or do and let them live their lives to their full potential. I feel that to overcome the gravity of the negativity bullies try to portray on others, we really need our own space and focus to leave all of that behind and clear the negativity.”
Farrah adds, "I think the single Blowin' reminds others of that great potential in an upbeat song. I also want my daughter to be better than all the gossip and negative people when she gets older. Sophia really likes the song and dances to it as much as she can."
