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.
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.
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."
In December, Jenelle and her current jerk boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, caused such a ruckus, a neighbor called the police. And a pregnant Jenelle was hauled off to jail for disturbing the peace. As per usual, Jenelle was bailed out of jail by the super hero of lawyers, Dustin, and she immediately took to Twitter to laugh and lie about it.
In January, Jenelle and Nathan were fighting because Nathan was texting with his ex-girlfriend, Brianna Doris, behind Jenelle's back. So, at one really nasty point in the argument, Jenelle hit record on her cell phone. And the video found its way to Radar last week. #PayDay
Now, in March, Jenelle wants us to believe that her relationship with Nathan is perfect, because, you guys, that stuff was wayyyy so longggg ago!
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."
Um…I'm not sure what to do with this information. It's just plain gross, but I think the issue I have with it is that I am not at all surprised by it. Have I become so jaded that nothing to do with Farrah Abraham shocks me anymore? Yes. The answer to that question is yes. In fact, with this morsel of gossip, I find myself saying "eww" in the highest.
So, when the Teen Mom star isn't waxing her daughter's eyebrows or showing up to Couples Therapy sans the other half of her "couple," Farrah is trying to make money off her porn private home sex tape filmed for the sole purpose of promoting her future self-esteem…because Backdoor Teen Mom clearly wasn't filmed on a set…with a production crew…and a porn star. You won't believe the latest gossip! Or maybe you will…
