Kim Kardashian Takes on Teen Mom

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian sides with Free Britney.

In a recent edition of THG Asks, one of our columnists argued that Teen Mom glorifies teen pregnancy. Now, in response to a report that 90 - yes, 90! - girls from a Memphis high school are knocked up or have given birth this year, Kim has blogged the following:

Ruined By Teen Mom

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!

When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.

We couldn't agree with Kim more. Amber Portwood, on the other hand?

The MTV star and mother of Leah replies:

"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 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."

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans had a more succinct response to Kim: "I want to say, s--t happens."

Choose a side in this feud:


I bet Kim only said that because she sees these girls taking over tabloids instead of her now lol. I would not take sides on any of them though they are known for being talentless anyway


so does Kim's sex tapes make girls want to make tapes too. Why I agree the teen mom show might be a bad example if I had a daughter I would not want her to look up to Kim either.


Sex won't make him love you and a baby won't make him stay...REMEMBER THAT GIRLS!


Kim is not exactly what I would call a voice of reason but on this topic she is right. People like Jenelle and Amber from teen mom are examples of what teens should never ever like or act like! Kim may be a no talent hack but at least no one besides herself has to deal wth the fallout of her actions. Jenelle and Amber have kids being dragged into the train wreck that is their lives and that is so wrong on so many levels!! Want to act he fool and ruin your life?Fine,go ahead! Just be damn sure you are not taking anyone else with you like those 2 teen moms are!


I don't think the show necessarily "glorifies" teen pregnancy; but I also don't think it shows things they way they really are. It's a lot harder than the show makes it look. Personally, I also see it as young women allowing their children to be exploited. Maybe it wasn't intended to be that way, but that's the way it comes off to me.
And as for whatserfaces's retaliation about Kim's sex tape; I don't think she's really in a place to be bashing her for something that is now so petty. Yes, Kim made a sex tape. But she dealt with it and it's no longer a big deal. YOU, young lady, freaked out and beat your boyfriend on national television, got your daughter taken away, and (from what I've heard; I could be wrong) got knocked up, AGAIN. You're a danger to other people, your daughter, and yourself. I think you're much worse off than Kim Kardashian. People make mistakes all the time, but most people learn from them, which Amber doesn't seem to be doing.


@blaize: you're basically re-telling me what I wrote about kim lol but I never said teens in general have no common sense but the MAJORITY who spread their legs thinking they won't get pregnant, don't.


I agree with Kim and not that bitch Amber that doesn't even know how hot take care of her own kid. Yeah there was a video going around of Kim but news flash Amber she was not sixteen or knocked up for that matter. It seems to me that the way that these shows are going girls are getting pregnant on purpose just to get a spot on this show. Amber instead of talking shit against Kim start going to some parenting classes but how about start by not going to jail first.


I agree with Kim. Not that bitch A


Thanks for sharing your story Anyway, as a part of sex-ed in high school, maybe the system should administer the daily birth control pill every day, at the end of first period! "Girls, swallow your pill, & then we'll all get started on page 66"
Part of sex-ed is learning how to have sex without fertilizing the egg. Birth control pills!


Whatever team your'e on
Kim was of age and an adult,
the teen moms were not.
