16 & Pregnant

Okay, I can't help it, I love this show & TEEN MOM, but i'm also 21 years old, and I don't think it's okay or ''cool'' to get pregnant at 16! Part of me thinks this show is good, but i think some episodes are glamourized. When I went on the MTV website, I saw the page you could 'sign up' for to be on the show for 16 & pregnant, i mean, granted i know u have to sign up to be on a show, but my goodness, i'm sure there's girls out there getting pregnant, in hopes of getting on the show.

what are your opinions on these kidns of shows?

  • I know that MTV wants to show how hard it is to be a teen parent but the people on there just disgust me so much. I don't remember her name but there was this girl who let her bf cheat on her and she keeps running back to him even though he is a complete douche and he's in jail now too. ugh just makes me sick, these girls are desperate for attention and MTV has given it to them.

  • I like the show, and I think while they started out with good intentions it has blown up into just another way to get famous for being stupid. I won't stop watching it because I find it entertaining, but I do think that some girls are getting pregnant in hopes of being on the show. Instead, they should be looking at the show as it was intended, a way to show how hard teen moms have it and hopefully discourage others from following the same path.

  • Haha I like and watch the show too but I agree. I can't help but think there are teen girls out there trying to get pregnant just to be on the show. BUT people watch it, so shows like that will go on..

  • I like to watch the show. Have you seen these girls? They really are having a tough time. I would hope girls are not just getting pregnant to sign on. What are they paying them anyway?
