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."

Kim is one to talk.... she'd run after a hotdog down a hallway!!! Especially if they are NBA stars or Ray-Jay.

Kim should not be one to talk. She is famous for being famous, and not to mention having a sex tape out there. If you actually watch teen mom and 16 and pregnant, you would know that it does not glorify teen pregnancy. It shows the hardships they face day to day, and how much they had to sacrifice to become a mother at such a young age. Not to mention- check out this link. http://tv.yahoo.com/blog/a-for...

I'm gonna say TEAM COMMON SENSE! First off kim shouldn't be one to talk about what the media glorifies, she's one of the reasons why girls make sex tapes so they can reach fame for doing absolutley nothing and she should also remember why she's "famous" in the first place. Yes, I will agree with her that girls shouldnt WANT to get pregnant when they're 16 because of a show. That's just common sense and most teens don't have that because they think they know everything already. As for Teen Mom, they're just giving what goes on in their lives: going to jail, having to be a single parent, raising a kid, having to support themselves and the child, being scammed out of $3,000, having a useless baby daddy....yeah all that stuff seems real GLAMOROUS.

Team Kim, here's why; kim does have a sex-tape,but in a sense she's paid her dues and has been smart about "it" ($$$) so here's the thing, "Teen mom" argues, the mtv show doesn't make being a teen mom cool, well to a certain point it does, drama, drama, and more drama ... Makes a teenage girl think 'well if she can do it (get preggers and be on t.v. "telling her strory, to help others") so can I' and makes it too easy to fall into that temptation of irresponsability, just for 15 minutes of fame. 15 minutes of fame, a lifetime responsability for another life (teen mom)!
