Another Spin Off of Teen Mom/16 and Pregnant in the works.
It seems like the Teen Mom girls are showing up everywhere lately. I can't pick up a magazine without seeing a story printed about them. Amber was on E! News and Perez Hilton the other day for the domestic abuse. What happened to these girls just wanting to be role models and wanting to prevent teen pregnancy?
The show is doing quite well on MTV. The finale even beat Jersey Shore in ratings. With that said, MTV is in talks for another Teen Mom/ 16 and Pregnant spin off. Why, oh why?
I'm glad that MTV is trying to show the "realness" of teen pregnancy and being a teen mother, but they are failing miserably. I don't know about everyone else, but I watch Teen Mom for the entertainment that it provides. I highly doubt too many people turn on their TVs and see these girls as role models. However, it does seem like Maci Bookout is the most popular among fans, and most do see her as a role model.
I really think another spin-off of the show is too much, and again, it will just show girls that they have another shot at getting on some show on MTV if they pregnant as a teen. Not cool.
