Having never been a teen mom, I don’t know what it’s like. Is it hard work and sacrifice or magazine covers and red carpets? Well, if you happen to be a teen mom on the MTV hit Teen Mom then your reality could be the latter. Full disclosure, I haven’t seen any of the show but I still can’t seem to escape it. Every magazine stand I pass has a cover featuring someone from the Teen Mom cast. What is all the hoopla about? Is it a Real Housewives-like guilty pleasure? It just seem from the surface to be glorifying teen parents. None of the parents featured have been covered in positive headlines. It’s always some drama. The kicker for me was a headline on E!’s website about cast members Amber and Gary walking the red carpet. Granted ,it was a red carpet in for a pre-Oscar party in Hamilton, Ind. but still. Why? Whose idea was this? What was the purpose? Every thing I’ve seen of the kids on this show says trouble, drama, issues. It’s like a gleaming PSA for kids of what not to do. Maybe that’s the point of the show? Doubtful. What am I missing here? Are there teens on the show with something positive to offer? You know other than court orders and jail time? It just seems to glorify the issue that is teen pregnancy without offering anything positive. What’s the message of the show? Is it being obscured by the now celebrity of these teens? There’s something good in there, right? Should I just watch the show?
