Can you tell someone has a new show coming out?
While visiting the Today Show yesterday, moral crusader Kim Kardashian found herself experiencing emotions beyond, “Hey, look at me,” and “Why are you not looking at me?” Turns out she was disturbed by the recent report of a Memphis high school that had 90 teens give birth and/or become pregnant prompting Kim to take to her blog where like a giant-assed Jesus, or someone who would’ve had sex with Martin Luther King, Jr., she proceeded to take aim at Teen Mom which she blames for the recent rash of teen pregnancies:
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!
Now here’s the best part. Before someone could say, “Wait, didn’t Kim get famous by leaking her own sex tape?” Teen Mom Amber Portwood immediately swooped in like a lactating Adam Lambert to say exactly that to E! News:
“There’s actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down,” Portwood exclusively tells E! News.
“Last time I checked, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape floating around on the internet and I’m pretty sure she made a lot of money off of it,” says the mother of 2-year-old Leah. “She made a sex tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom? If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us. It doesn’t glamorize anything! It shows the heartache we’ve all gone through.”
Not only does Amber Portwood have a leg to stand on in this argument, which has to be a sign of the apocalypse, but she pretty much won. Yes, Teen Mom is making young girls think that if they get pregnant they’ll be rewarded with a reality show contract and implants. But you know who has no room to judge? Someone who used Paris Hilton as a template to get famous. In fact, the only person Kim Kardashian could feasibly look down up on is Tila Tequila, and even then, I’d be comfortable calling that one a draw. (Oh, no, I di’int…)
