Stars of Teen Mom Beefing with Kim K.

Yesterday, Kim Kardashian took to her blog and discussed teen pregnancy. She expressed her concern about young girls becoming pregnant at too young of an age.

" It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!"
She continues...
"Having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do."

 Today,  Amber Portwood, and Jenelle from Teen Mom, fired back at Kims comments while on E! News. 

"There's actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down.
Last time I checked, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape floating around on the internet and I'm pretty sure she made a lot of money off of it," she says. "She made a sex tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom? If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us. It doesn't glamorize anything! It shows the heartache we've all gone through. We may be ‘celebrities' because our face is out there, but it's only because we've done some bad things. That's not glamorous."

Well damn..... I understand why they became defensive about Kims comments, since she doesn't have the most respected history. But, I can also see Kims point of view too. Initially when Teen Mom premiered,  there was little awareness about the consequences of teen pregnancy.
However, as each season comes around, I believe that MTV has done a great job portraying the girls as struggling mothers. By the end of each episode MTV  always seems to emphasize the hardships of being a teen mom.



  1. yeah i dont think kim k should have been the one to step out and say anything being as she's only famous because of a sex tape so hmm teen pregnancy, sex tape you be the judge.

  2. Yea....I mean she has the right to have her own opinion, but I understand why the girls are being so defensive

  3. I dont think Kim has a right to bash these ladies at all. I think she is seeing that really anyone can become famous these days; she is not famous for anything really, and she doesn't like how these girls are famous for being famous either. I do love Kim though, just don't like this point she made.
