Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.
This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.
One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.
The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.
Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!
A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!
The new season of 16 & Pregnant premiers on MTV Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Last night, we bid farewell to the girls of the second Teen Mom…with the help of Dr. Drew of course!
After putting Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry in the hot seat last week, Drew has Chelsea Houska on the sofa. She reveals that her relationship with Adam is civil, but does include hooking up with him, Dr. Drew pronounces it not healthy. Wow. I think I could do his job. After recapping Chelsea’s season, I wish Dr. Drew would ream her for riding on Adam’s motorcycle without a helmet. Instead he applauds her for her accomplishments…which I guess she deserves. He mentions her former friend, Megan, who recently had her baby, and Chelsea is quick to say that she hates that her friend is missing out on her youth like she did.

No, no, no! Corey’ Simms‘ camo hat seems to be prohibiting rational thoughts from coming out of that noggin of his!
The current issue of Us Weekly has those close to the jilted Teen Dad–whose wife of six months Leah Messer confessed to cheating on him a week before they were married–speculating that he wants her back! The couple’s divorce was highlighted on the final episodes of this season’s Teen Mom 2 after Leah spilled the infidelity beans, claiming Corey wouldn’t have sex with her in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Well, if that is the case, her cheating must have been justified! #dumbestexcuseever
The pair’s divorce was finalized in June of last year, with Leah jumping straight into another relationship, another cohabitation, and another engagement rather quickly with new beau Jeremy Calvert. Leah even tragically suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant by Jeremy. However, none of this information seems to dissuade Corey from wanting to reconcile with the mother of his twin daughters.
A “friend” of his explains to the magazine, “Corey is still crazy for Leah. He doesn’t want her to marry Jeremy.”
Another source laments, “He did all he could to make it work, as she’s the only girl he ever loved.”
Said source must also be a mutual friend of Leah’s, because he/she believes that Corey’s hopes are a lost cause, sharing, “Leah will always care about Corey, but she’s happy with Jeremy. Watching this season made her relive their problems.” Their problems. Could “their problems” have something to do with the fact that Leah cheated on her groom-to-be and then blamed the demise of their marriage on him not wanting to buy a new trailer? Nah, probably different problems…
Not so fast there, Lauren! Apparently Leah has amped up her “no sex before the wedding is a valid reason to cheat” excuse to include–dum da dum dum–porn! Specifically, Corey was watching porn instead of bedding his fiance. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am shocked and appalled. Corey watches porn? Corey, the young twenty-something male who didn’t want a trailer upgrade and needed subtitles, watches porn? If she had told me he read classic novels until late into the night so he was too tired for sexy time or even that his Sudoku addiction interfered with his libido, I’d believe her…but porn? That’s a stretch.
In a sneak peek video posted below, the couple is seen discussing their sex life (or apparently lack thereof) with Dr. Drew in a premiere for tomorrow night’s final episode. While Corey claims the pair had a very active and normal sex life, Leah maintains that he wasn’t very affectionate towards her in the weeks leading up to their wedding due to all the porn he was watching.
“I felt like you was looking at her, and thinking…I mean, I kinda felt like that was cheating,” Leah tells Corey during the Drew-led conversation. Eh, maybe, but not as much cheating as actually having intercourse with someone other than your partner. But that’s just me.
Enough on the second installment of Teen Moms, the original Teen Moms need some attention too! Realityweeklymagazine.com is reporting that Corey isn’t the only one from the franchise chasing down an old flame. Apparently, Maci Bookout has her sights set on ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in light of her recent break-up with long-time love Kyle King. You recall that the pair didn’t make it after alleged pressure on Kyle from Maci to marry her ASAP. Of course, does anyone think that Maci was ever really over Bentley’s dad?
Yet another “source” close to the young mom reveals, “He’s always been the one. She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”
Ahh, young love. I wonder if these girls will ever learn that being “hot” isn’t the most important building block in a healthy, stable relationship. Probably not.
The conclusion of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10 PM ET.
DO YOU THINK COREY REALLY WANTS TO RECONCILE WITH LEAH? WILL THE TWO GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON HIS PORN WATCHING LEADING TO HER CHEATING? WAS MACI EVER REALLY OVER RYAN?
The good news? After spending close to two months in jail for violating her probation, via drug possession, the MTV reality star will finally be released today according to TMZ. The bad news? Amber was released because the halfway house, Sister 2 Sister Ministries, Amber was supposed to go to, has now refused to accept her.
Their reason? They apparently felt Amber, 21, is a handful and abhorred too much negative energy. This means for the time being, Amber is able to live with her grandparents… and continue to film for MTV’s Teen Mom.
Had Amber been accepted into the halfway house, she would be required to stay there for at least eight months, during which, she would also have to get a regular 9 – 5 job and would be unable to film for MTV.
“Amber is so happy and relieved that she won’t have to live at the halfway house,” her mother, Tonya Portwood, told E! News on Thursday. “And now she will get to spend more time with her daughter, which is what this was all about anyway.”
Amber is, however, not completely out of the woods yet or even close to it. Following her release today, she’ll be required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet. Plus, the judge is still requiring her to apply for residency at another halfway home, a process which could take months.
As reported earlier this week, despite stating last year that she no longer wanted to appear on Teen Mom, Amber has had a change of heart as sources close to her reveal she needs the MTV income after spending most of her money on legal fees. Amber will also be required to take regular drug tests while she lives with her grandparents.
Amber is still on probation for five years and on a suspended five year prison sentence, meaning any failed drug test or probation violation could lead to a five year stint in prison.

TELL US – IS IT TIME FOR MTV TO CUT TIES WITH AMBER?
It’s the curtain call for the girls of Teen Mom 2, and we can only hope they have learned from their many struggles during the recent installment of the franchise. It’s doubtful, but we can hope! Last night the moms sat down with, the one-and-only, Dr. Drew Pinsky, to discuss the hardships they faced during their sophomore season.
Dr. Drew begins with a recap of the season. Sidebar, are Kailyn and Leah going to the same hairdresser? Their hairstyles are shades of off-white and stark white, respectively. After watching the footage, both are already teary. Kailyn claims she is upset watching her friend get upset. The show has brought the pair closer.
Chelsea reveals that Aubree loves doing her hair and make-up. It appears that maybe Chelsea was sitting a seat over from the blondes in the salon. She has also been visiting Year Round Brown, as she’s very tan. Jenelle expounds on what Chelsea has said about Aubree and Jace…apparently the toddlers are either fighting or making out when they are in the same room. The therapy session cuts to commercial, and of course the first advertisement (of many, I’m sure) introduces the newest teens on 16 and Pregnant. #Depressing.

According to a new TMZ report, Leah, 19, was attacked by three women over the weekend outside of a movie theater, in West Virginia. Sources reveal Leah was getting ready to leave the theater with her fiancé, Jeremy Calvert, on Sunday night when an older woman began following her and calling her names.
While Leah asked the woman to leave her alone, two more girls appeared, and all three decided to jump Leah. Luckily for Leah, Jeremy and a security guard were able to break things up and get Leah away from her attackers.
Leah suffered injuries which included, a swollen cheek and redness on her chest and neck. Leah maintains she does not know who her attackers are, and plans to file a police report.
A photo of Leah’s injuries is below.
Moving on to troubled Teen Mom, Amber Portwood, who is gearing up to leave jail and enter a drug program halfway house. If you recall, the judge in Amber’s case gave her the option of doing five years in prison or entering a drug program.
Amber chose the latter, but suffered an unexpected blow when the judge told her she could NOT film anything for MTV while doing the program, and had to get a regular 9 – 5 job, that does not include filming for Teen Mom.
According to a shocking new report by E! Online, sources close to Amber reveal that despite her past comments about wanting to get out of her contract with MTV, she is now having second thoughts as she a) needs the income and b) does not want to get a 9 – 5 job like all the other regular folk.
Even worse for Amber, she has spent most of her MTV earnings on her legal fees. Sources tell E! Amber decided, Saturday, that she would rather “do her time now and get it out of the way,” because the halfway house is “not the right place for her. She’d have a 10 p.m. curfew and would never see Leah because she wouldn’t want to bring Leah around that place.”
Err… Amber does realize ‘doing her time now and getting it out of the way’ means doing five years in prison right?
“The system doesn’t want Amber to succeed,” the source said. “She needs to stay in the entertainment industry. There are no jobs in Anderson. She needs to finish her schooling. She can’t do all of that with a $7-an-hour job.”
A court clerk tells E! News that Amber has to stay in the drug program for a minimum of 18 months, and up to a maximum of three years. While doing the program, Amber is also required to appear in drug court every week.
MTV is currently filming a new season of Teen Mom, which will reportedly premiere sometime in April. E! reports Amber hasn’t filmed since Thanksgiving.

According to the latest issue of Star Magazine, Maci’s baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, now wants full custody of their 3-year old son Bentley.
“Ryan initially wanted joint custody,” reveals a source. “But after the incident in Anaheim when she got kicked out of the hotel, he’s trying to get full custody. Full is what he really wants.” The incident in Anaheim is apparently when Maci and Kyle had a major fight in California about their relationship, which in turn led to them being kicked out of the hotel, after which, Maci went out partying until 3:00 am.
So what led to Ryan’s change of heart? Apparently his “concern about Maci’s drinking and partying,” explains the source. “Maci goes out all the time. As it is now, Ryan already has Bentley more than she does. Maci will leave Bentley with Ryan so she can go out and party.”
The source also claims Maci’s bad behavior is now rubbing off on her young son. “Bentley will go to Ryan’s after being with his mom, and he’ll be cussing a lot,” reveals the source. “Ryan will ask where he gets it from, and Bentley says, ‘Mama and Ky.’ She’s being really inappropriate.” Yikes!
To make matters worse, the newly single Maci, 20, has reportedly moved in “with three drunk party girls,” the source says. It has “Ryan really worried.”
For the time being, Ryan has yet to officially start the custody war, as he’s waiting to petition the courts until he can establish himself as the more responsible parent.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT?IF TRUE, SHOULD MACI LOSE CUSTODY? COULD YOU EVER SEE RYAN AS BEING THE MORE RESPONSIBLE PARENT?
While Amber Portwoodhad publicly expressed her wish to end her career with MTV’s mega hit show, Teen Mom, citing she felt “exploited,” it is now becoming extremely likely that Amber will never appear on another episode of the series.
If you recall, Amber was sentenced by an Indiana judge recently to either do five years in prison or a stint in a drug program. Amber wisely chose the latter and will be heading into the Sister 2 Sister Ministries program any day now, pending evaluation.
While the judge did not give Amber, 21, a clear time frame of how long she needed to be in the program, TMZ is reporting Amber was ordered to live in a halfway house for up to three years.
In addition to that, she must also get a court approved 9-to-5 job that she must attend at least five days a week. The judge, however, made it crystal clear that filming Teen Mom does NOT constitute as a job. In fact, the judge even went one step futher by stating Amber CANNOT film anything for MTV while staying at the halfway house, working her job or appearing in court.
The judge also got in touch with MTV, and the network promised the court it would not sue Amber for breaking her contract with the series due to her sentencing.
I’m not surprised MTV is willing to let Amber out of her contract as for starters, not agreeing to do so would equal very bad publicity for the network. Plus, following Amber’s suicide attempt last summer, something tells me MTV might be more than happy to part ways with her, perhaps not wanting to experience blame or backlash in the case of any future tragedy. In fact, just last October, Amber revealed she was still suicidal.
Amber’s departure from MTV would spell bad news for her baby daddy, Gary Shirley,who has reportedly blown most of his MTV earnings on boozing and strippers.
