On last night's Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham took her newly-paid-for breasts on a modeling gig in Colorado, making hard-earned money to support Sophia.
Meanwhile, Maci Bookout took the plunge and moved in with Kyle King, a relatively nice, stable individual who even has a job. So things are going well, right?
WRONG, according to In Touch, which claims Teen Mom RUINED their lives! Anorexia! Addiction! Abuse! Living on popcorn and cigarettes! Oh, the horror!
Besides the walking train wreck that is Amber Portwood, it's hard to see how MTV is ruining their lives. Seems to us like they were in tight spots already.
If anything, aren't they getting paid, and thus supporting their kids?
Maybe it sends the wrong message to viewers, but for these girls specifically, how has it been bad? Farrah and Maci seem to be making positive steps.
Sure, maybe they're "bribed" to be on the show. Sure, maybe getting a boob job wasn't a good idea. But it helps her model and support herself, right?
Call it what you want, they do this of their own free will. They still struggle, sure, but those struggles are documented in a realistic way most shows can't match.
It's hardly MTV's fault for showing it like it is.
