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.
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."
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Liz and Taylor are shocked. "That's part of my repertoire," announces Taylor. Lovely. "I'm an expert," says Liz who decimated Jon in an earlier episode for "beating off". Hypocrite much?
The next day Liz and Jon have a little gift for Kelsey – it's her very first vibrator! Surprisingly it did not come fromFarrah Abraham's line of sex toys. She wasn't passing out goody bags?! Oh but wait – she was forced to make those vaj-molds and videotape herself doing it! Cause we all want a keek of Farrah's crotchal region covered in plaster! I don't know what's a grosser vibrator association: Jon or Farrah.
Moving on, Taylor is struggling with parenting. "I don't parent," she slurs at the camera before course correcting to explain she doesn't set boundaries. #FreudianSlip Kennedy comes to the house the next day for some quality time with this woman who people say is her mom. Taylor greets Kennedy with villainous laugh that lasts about 5 minutes. In return, Kennedy shoots Taylor dirty looks that could melt a lip-plant.
This won't end well. Speaking to a gossip magazine about Jenelle is not quite what I had in mind when Amber said she wanted to help others. Amber began, "It's not like you can wake up one day and be like, 'Hey, I'm clean' – it's irresponsible and immature." Addressing Jenelle, Amber added, "You have one child you need to think about before you have another."
Season four has been the highest-rated and most popular season of Couples Therapy thus far thanks to reality TV fans flocking to VH1 to see train wrecks such as RHOBH's Taylor Armstrong, Teen Mom's Farrah Abraham, and Jon & Kate Plus 8's Jon Gosselin. They did not disappoint — but Dr. Jenn Berman definitely did every time she failed to call out Taylor's lies, supported Farrah's delusions, and enabled Jon's anger issues
Speaking of Jon, he scored oodles of air time last week when he claimed Kate Gosselin refused to let him talk to his kids on the phone – and then he called her a "piece of f–king shit" and a "shitty human being" on camera. I never doubted Jon's story because, um, Kate is a nasty, vindictive person, However, according to an inside source, Jon lied about the phone call.
