Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is firing back at Kim Kardashian for some comments she made recently about the negative impact of Amber’s show on teen culture. Kim warned girls not to idolize the underage and pregnant girls on the MTV show and said that she fears the show puts the wrong message out there.
Amber spoke to E! and gave quite a statement:
“There’s actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies has 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. 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. We may be ‘celebrities’ because our face is out there, but it’s only because we’ve done some bad things. That’s not glamorous.”
Pretty lucid and slightly intelligent, huh?
I’m definitely not one to side with Amber, but she’s right. Kim Kardashian is far from being in a position to judge what people do to make a name for themselves. Her entire family has endlessly benefited from her letting Brandy’s little brother urinate on her, and she’s calling out these teenage girls? It sounds to me like Kim’s never seen Teen Mom OR Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
