Kim is slamming the MTV show and blaming it for the teen pregnancy epidemic that has plagued a high school in Memphis, Tennessee.
She heard about the situation while at the Today Show and was so upset by the news she took to her blog to vent her frustrations. Here's what she had to say:
"While I was at the Today Show this morning I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!
"When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.
"Girls, please, think very carefully before you make these kind of decisions. Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful.
Gotta agree with Kim on this one. Just because a handful of Teen Moms were chosen to be on a reality show doesn't mean it's going to happen to the rest of you. Use a condom kids! You can't just hand your kid off when you're tired of being a mom, it's for life!
