16 And Pregnant Star Weston Gosa Arrested For DUI, The ‘Reality Teen Parent’ Curse Continues

Some people may be having a little too much fun during this holiday week. On July 4th, 16 and Pregnant baby daddy Weston Gosa got into a bit of a sticky situation behind the wheel. After crashing his car, this winner was arrested when police discovered that he was under the influence of prescription drugs. Though his mug shot is probably one of the most amusing ones we’ve come across in awhile, it falls among the many that 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom stars have consistently provided us.

It appears these shows’ casts just can’t seem to escape the po po and keep on flailing in legal hot water. For some of these young parents like Janelle Evans and Amber Portwood,  their trainwreck days seem far from over. (Portwood did recently choose a 5-year prison sentence over a stint in rehab soo she might be living the thug life for awhile). In light of the fact that so many of these stars have run into some trouble with the law, we have compiled their rap sheets and we gotta say, these teens do not mess around. From beating the bejesus out of their…well, really anyone…to getting DUI’s, these are some hot messes through and through.

Whitney Purvis: In March, 2012, this 16 and Pregnant season 1 celeb was arrested for stealing a pregnancy test from a Georgia Wal-Mart. She later announced that she was not pregnant, yet again. Thank god.

Joshua Rendon and Ebony Jackson-Rendon: This unstable 16 and Pregnant pair was arrested in September, 2011, facing felony charges of maintaining a drug premise and making unauthorized use of another’s property to abet a crime. They also faced misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a minor (their 2-year-old daughter), possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.  Though they subsequently lost custody of their child, they now claim they are ready for another baby. Hmm.

Aubrey Wolters: In July 2011, Aubrey was slapped with shoplifting charges and ordered to stay away from Wal-Mart for one year after she was caught stealing $29.66 worth of cosmetics from the store. Beware Wal-Mart: Wolters is free to enter the store this month. Let’s keep your hands where we can see them, Aubrey.

Kianna Randall: The 16 and Pregnant season 3 rebel was charged with one count of attempted burglary of a habitation and one count of attempted burglary of habitation-theft in August, 2011. This wasn’t a joking matter as attempted burglary of a habitation is a second degree felony in the state of Texas. Not cool, Randall.

Feud Of The Day: Kim Kardashian Vs. Teen Moms

Well this is quite the conundrum. Yesterday, Kim Kardashian slammed the popularity of Teen Mom and the “glamorization” of young motherhood in a blog post. Kim wrote that while filming at The Today Show, she learned about “a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year.” She followed up by writing “It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls.” Point taken, Kim, that is worrisome stuff.

But one Teen Mom in particular, Amber Portwood, isn’t taking Kardashian‘s criticism lightly, firing back to E! “There’s actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down. 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.” Touch, girlfriend. While Kim makes a very good point that girls need to “think very carefully before you make these kind of decisions. Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful,” she is not a shining example of abstinence or even good judgment, really. But then again, even though Amber did the Wham! thing to do and chose life, she’s no shining example of motherhood. Whose opinion do we care about more??

After some thought, we decided who we’re siding with—neither of them! Lesson learned. When in doubt, don’t look to reality stars for advice, kids.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood Regrets Getting Life-Sized Tattoo Of Her Baby


The thing about being a teenage mother is that you don’t always exercise good judgment. Some people learn from their mistakes, and some people just keep on making terrible choices. Take, for instance, Amber Portwood from Teen Mom. Earlier this week Portwood revealed a giant new tattoo of her baby Leah‘s face. The tattoo, Portwood’s first, certainly will be hard to top, seeing as there’s practically no more available space on Portwood’s body. This thing is huge. Portwood, who has denied claims that she’s pregnant for a second time, certainly never considered what would happen to her stomach and the new ink should she get pregnant again.

But with a tattoo of such considerable size, comes a considerable amount of regret as well. A friend of Amber’s told Pop Eater “In that moment it seemed like a great idea to get a tattoo and show the entire world how much she loved Leah, but now it doesn’t seem like such a great decision. When the pain goes away Amber will be left with a massive picture of a baby’s face on her stomach.” Um, no duh?

Is Teen Mom Amber Pregnant Again?


Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is reportedly pregnant again, according to Star Magazine. The magazine also claims that Portwood, who only recently regained custody of her two-year-old daughter Leah, has no idea who the father of her new baby is, and boyfriend Clinton Yunker and ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley don’t even know she’s preggers! So Star knows all the dirty details, like how Amber took a pregnancy test on December 4, but the potential father(s) of the child have no clue? Awesome. Way to go, America.

If the report is true, then the tragedy here is neither that a young woman can’t learn from her own mistakes, nor is it that 20-year-old Amber has gone from teen mom to irresponsible adult. The real tragedy is that Portwood is making Bristol Palin, whose pro-abstinence stance seemed laughable because it was so ironic, actually sound like she knows what she’s talking about. Sigh.

Bristol Palin Shuns MTV’s Teen Moms, Won’t Let Them Attend DWTS?


You know how the audience of Dancing With The Stars is usually stocked with random celebrities, or at least recognizable “personalities?” Well, don’t expect to see the girls from Teen Mom sitting in the audience any time soon. That’s because the most famous teen mom, Bristol Palin, allegedly doesn’t want to be associated with the stars of the MTV show and has refused to let them attend tapings.

Speaking with PopEater, an ABC exec said “Bristol Palin has made it very clear to the show producers that she doesn’t want the teen moms in the audience cheering her on no matter how much it might boost ratings. . .the line has been drawn on MTV’s super popular teen moms thanks to Bristol.”

Bristol might have associated with the other moms back in the day (er, like  all the way back in May, 2010 when they appeared on a panel together) but Bristol wants nothing to do with them now. Instead, she wants to focus on the competition and not the fact that she’s most famous for getting pregnant at 17 while her pro-abstinence mother was running for Vice President. Speaking of her child – where is lil’ Tripp anyway? Doesn’t matter! What matters is that Bristol high-kicks the crap out of Jennifer Grey while exerting her power as alpha-teen-mom-mean-girl. Right?

Oh Maci, What Would Bentley Think?


Yes, we are Teen Mom junkies and rooted particularly hard for Maci Bookout, for the same reasons everyone else adored her. She’s perfect, she’s pretty, she says her son’s name with an adorable Southern accent (“BINT-ley”) and she tried to make things work with a hot a-hole, something just about every desperate person can relate too. Did we maybe build her up into a pint-size angel of all things good when she is, in fact, just human? Er, probably, which is why these recent photos of her binge-drinking on the beach at Spring Break are so heartbreaking.

Sure, we sound like our own mother, but we can’t help it. We don’t want Maci to act like a normal teenage (ie: Farrah) we want to hold her to unrealistic standards of perfection! Alas, she is doing exactly what we did at her age (god, we’re geezers): party, hook up with pasty, ugly dudes (yes, that’s allegedly her boyfriend) and get a giant tattoo of cupcakes on our back. Typical teen stuff, if you forget about the mom part of it.
