Why We Love To Hate Amber Portwood

I remember when gossip columns devoted space to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Now we’ve got Amber Portwood, the young woman on “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” who Star magazine says is pregnant with her second baby. Amber is already the mother of a 2-year-old daughter, Leah, with ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Star says she’…

When I read that our blogger friends at Jezebel.com started a PayPal account for a “college fund” to help Catelynn and Tyler, the teens who gave their daughter up for adoption on “16 and Pregnant,” my heart melted a little bit. “Catelynn and Tyler have won us over, exhibiting strength and maturity in the face…

Dear Us Weekly, Life & Style, OK!, People and the rest of the tabloid mags out there:

We love that we can solidly rely on you for coverage of Jen Aniston’s sex life, Brangelina’s oversized brood, or anything to do with Kim Kardashian’s butt. But for the love of God, please stop covering the…

If The “16 & Pregnant” Girls Are Glamorizing Teen Pregnancy, They’re Doing A Crap Job

Before the sexual revolution happened in the ’60s and ’70s, life got bleak for pregnant teen girls really fast. You could be cast from your home and sent away to give birth in seclusion, or risk an illegal and dangerous back-alley abortion.

Frisky Rant: Catelynn And Tyler Shouldn’t Be On “Teen Mom”

OK, I have a little confession to make: I watched every episode of “16 and Pregnant” repeatedly and now I’m obsessed with the spinoff show, “Teen Mom.” I admire these teens for being much stronger than I could be as a 20-something. (Although I can’t say they’re smarter. Condoms? Hello?) Anyway, I really enjoyed Cately…

“16 And Pregnant” Teens Struggle To Give Their Baby Up For Adoption

MTV‘s “16 and Pregnant” was a hot mess last night. Catelynn and Tyler are really sweet, smart, loving, mature kids who want the best for their baby, but their mom and pops are pretty screwed up. Mom is a drunk driver; Tyler’s dad is an ex-con. And, their parents are married. Yeah, Cately…

Oh Baby! MTV’s “16 And Pregnant” Premieres

Last night, MTV premiered its new reality show “16 And Pregnant.” And the Juno from the premiere, Miss Maci from Chattanooga, was like a Babyzilla pounding her fists for attention and whining to her BF and the cameras non-stop. Good thing MTV was there to validate the importance of her feelings!
