If Farrah Abrahams doing porn with James Dean wasn’t enough of a scandal for the MTV stars of “Teen Mom” and “Teen Mom 2,” it seems another Teen Mom is heading to rehab. We all know the problems that lie within this show. Jennelle was caught with heroin and pill abuse, not mentioning violent outbursts.
There are many questions being asked but a big was is, “Was it right to put these children bearing children on national coverage?” Dr. Drew would have his two cents on this, but yet we see another scandal.
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Calvert admits to MTV with her addiction to prescription drugs. The news apparently broke first when she was in a court battle with ex-husband Corey Simms. Simms was protesting for custody of the children. He had good ground to stand on as the court bore all for Leah.
In a quote from People Magazine about her prescription abuse after the birth of her daughter Adalynn in 2013, Leah states:
“When I was hurting so bad, I’d take the medication because I could get up and go. I could take care of my kids. My back wasn’t hurting,” she tells her mother. “I told you guys, ‘I’ve got this medication. I feel like I’m becoming dependent. I can’t take this medication.’ I stopped taking the medication.” She said that the person she used to be and knows she still can be is “Crying from inside me” (People Exclusive 2014).
To add kerosene to the fire, Leah has now split with her current husband, Jeremy Calvert. This took place during the filming of the current season, soon to be aired on MTV.
We haven’t seen much success from any of the Teen Mom’s from the beginning of 16 and pregnant. This clearly isn’t reality television. It’s more like a drama/soap opera. Is the point of this to film teenagers who are still unable to make the competent choice of, “I want to be filmed,” take them at one of the most vulnerable times in their life, and press exploitation? I guess the key word there being, “Press.”
There have been many court cases with many different people on the show. The types of cases range from drug abuse to domestic violence. Now there’s the biggest of them all, Farrah Abrahams sex tape.
Clearly the show hasn’t done much justice except bring a good force fed point of view on what teen pregnancy should look like. Thanks MTV.
Is this the case for all teenage pregnancies? Certainly not, but should we videotape any teen going through this, even if it’s to showcase prevention of teen pregnancy? I don’t think so.
Where’s the morals clause? I want to see it! Anyone? Lawyers? Morals clause?
I ask you, besides giving you another Television show on MTV—which was meant for music and music videos—what has this show done for you or these poor girls?
It hurts my heart to see the exploitation go on any longer. But I don’t write the contracts here, I just write the reviews.
