Rosie O’Donnell: ‘Teen Mom Sends a Positive Message’
And that message is, Babies = Money for Implants. I’m on board.
While Kim Kardashian has become a vocal opponent of MTV’s Teen Mom conveniently before her own show premiered, Rosie O’Donnell has come out in support of the reality show which she feels teaches kids a valuable lesson. Us Magazine reports:
“I have to say it’s interesting,” O’Donnell, 48, told Us Sunday at Self Magazine’s Tribute to Women Who Make Women Look Good on Film. “My daughter is 13. I watch it with her,” the star said of Chelsea, whom she adopted with ex partner Kelly Carpenter. “I think the fantasy for adopted children is to have a baby of their own, and then keeping it, which their mother did not do,” she mused.
Added the comic: “The rate of teenage pregnancy is up, so when my daughter saw that [Teen Mom 2] was on the air, I said ‘Let’s watch it.'”
Her review? “At the end of almost every episode the mothers say they wish they used protection or waited, ‘My whole life is over,’ or ‘I can’t live the life of a teenager.’ I think it sends out a positive message.”
And then in typical fashion, Rosie O’Donnell managed to prove she has no fucking clue what she’s talking about by entirely contradicting herself:
“I do feel sad that all these girls are getting pregnant in an effort to get on a TV show,” she told Us. “That’s a little tragic.”
When the supposed “positive message” is encouraging teens not to get pregnant, yet the end result is teens getting even more pregnant that’s what we in the biz call a “clusterfuck,” Rosie. Then again, you’re a drunk who likes to to tell people she could’ve banged Angelina Jolie and these are all pretty technical terms. I’d love nothing more than to explain them to you, but I seem to have left my satchel full of ribeyes at home. You understand.
