Lots of people are not fans of the Teen Mom phenomenon. Add Chelsea Handler to that list, and for some surprisingly personal reasons, she revealed.
The E! star described her own personal ordeal with teen pregnancy and the choice that changed her life in an interview with the New York Times.
“We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment,” she says.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta and some of these other shows are just racist. Or 16 and Pregnant. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
Chelsea Handler knows this situation personally, confessing that she was a pregnant teen who exercised her right to choose, which she’s grateful she has.
“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” Chelsea blantantly states. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid.”
“Those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”
You have to hand it to the Handler. She does not mince words and is not shy about who she is, even if that means a lot of people won’t like what she is.
Regardless of her view on the issue of choice, do you think Chelsea makes a point that teen pregnancy being too glamorized? Discuss in the comments …
