It's A.J. here, and I am just blown away by the idea that teens may be getting pregnant to get on reality TV!
There are brand new reports out today that say the stars of MTV’s “Teen Mom” and “16 and Pregnant” are garnering so much fame off-camera, that there are concerns young girls are actually running out to get pregnant so they can audition for the shows!
I think it’s insane that anyone would go to such lengths to be famous or even suggest such a thing. What does that say about the state of our reality TV obsessed society that people would actually get pregnant just to be on TV?
I turn it over to you, because I want to know what you think! We’re asking in our "Showbiz" Flashpoint today: Do you think “Teen Mom” glamorizes teen pregnancy? Post your comments here.
Some other big stories I’ve got today on "Showbiz Tonight":
Sandra Bullock has been named People Magazine’s “Woman Of The Year”! Plus, Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson’s Shocking Split! What the heck happened?
