Teen Mom - Helping or Hurting

I just found out that the girls on Teen Mom make $140,000 for a six month stint. For a year, it's $280,000. Do you think this will make an impact on teenage girls getting pregnant? I'm afraid girls will look at it and say, if I get on that show, I will make money and be able to take care of myself. How about you?

  • i also would rather watch anything on TV rather than that show, i know this girl who loves it (she was a teen mom) and always wants to talk about it and im like 'omg i dont care. dont you have friends that do?'
