I hope you didn't interpret that as me thinking they should
Think about it, though. Girl gets pregnant at 16 and gets a gig to be on a MTV show.
You don't think there were girls say 10 to 14 years old thinking, "Oh wow, she's great."
I think teen mom was a fucked up show, actually.
In a way it was educational: don't have kids when you're young! Protect yourself!
Then again, I think it may have given young girls the wrong impression about what life is like having a child that young. Lights, camera, action type shit.
It's not grown adults watching, it's teenagers - a lot of whom idolize just about anything, especially if it's on MTV.
