On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
This episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is titled the Co-Parent Trap. I find this title clever. Or I did, until I wondered if these kids were old enough to even get the movie reference and looked up the dates. The Lindsay Lohan remake of The Parent Trap was made in 1998! It’s 20 years old, the same age as the oldest two girls and OLDER than the other three. So now I feel ancient. That said, the 1998 remake was a decent movie. And the 1961 original is worth the watch as well. I also didn’t know that the original movie was based off of a book, but that makes sense for Disney. Anyway, I guess we should jump in and see what’s going on with our young moms and dads.
It’s a new week on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. Can we offer these kids lessons in Parenting 101? Let’s do it anyway.
- Help your baby momma come up with a name for your child. And smile while you do it!
- Put up some kind of bed for your child because it’s a terrible idea to have them sleep between you with pillows!
- Maternity photos don’t need to be taken on national television in a bra and underwear.
- Discuss marriage and life goals so you are on the same page, communication is key for a positive relationship.
- Don’t quit your job! You need money to provide for a baby.
- Now let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and come up with 20 more!
We get our first baby of the season and here’s hoping that all the daddies can be as attentive and nurturing as Sean’s first night home with Jade Cline and baby Kloie! If not, we have to hope that hard hitting relative like Aunt Vania will come in and set them straight! Let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
Please say ‘no’. It was a bit of a struggle to come up with a quote of the week on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. So I am going to reluctantly award it to Kyler again (he and Ashley are really stepping it up) with his “Please say no” comment when discussing homecoming. I feel this is generally appropriate since they all should have said ‘no’ without proper birth control.
Like flies caught in spider webs, these kids have sealed their futures together and they are sticky. Don’t get me wrong, we are sure to catch some epic breakups in the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant episodes to come, but raising babies is going to make these kids deal with each other for 18-years+ for the sake of their kids.
MTV is keeping with its commitment to prove to you that your life choices could have been worse, much much worse. So that means we get yet another pregnancy show focused on young people. This time around they are combining 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom by showing numerous young people’s stories and showing what happens after the babies get here. We also get a couple of 20 year old’s which does help bring a couple of the stories out of the high school setting. In addition, moving between multiple storylines provides a lot of drama and activity to follow – so let’s meet the couples of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
This week MTV announced that a new Teen Mom reality series is heading our way next month and we can’t wait! Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is set to debut on Monday, March 12. The show will feature not just moms-to-be who are 16 and pregnant, but this will highlight a group who range in age from 17 to 20. The show will introduce us to five new Teen Moms: Lexi & Briana (17), Kayla (18), and Jade & Ashley (20).
I know Teen Mom takes a lot of heat for “glorifying” teen pregnancy, but the opposite is true. The show is great birth control for many by showing the horrifying reality, pressure, and struggle of having babies at a young age. The stats to prove it are below in MTV’s press release.
