Mean Betty: First Teen Mom, Now Teen Divorce?!
What will MTV think of next?
Kittens, the gifts just keep coming from MTV. First they gave us My Super Sweet 16, a show about over privileged brats lording it over other over privileged brats on their “big days.” Then they gave us Made, a show about how anyone can change his entire life in only 30 minutes or less. And then, my little ewe lambs, teendom was forever changed when they debuted, Teen Mom. A truly educational show about teens getting knocked up.
Mean Betty just lurves Teen Mom. When it’s on, she, the butler and the pool boy gather ‘round the TV and play a game. Every time a baby cries, they do a shot. Every time a Teen Mom pouts, they do a shot. Every time a door slams, they do a shot. Mean Betty, sadly, can never remember the ending of a single episode, but lambs, that’s the point of the game!
Teen Mom Leah Messer recently married her baby daddy, Corey Simms. After six months of being legal, they’re throwing in the towel and getting a divorce. And guess what, my little angels? MTV is filming it all! Isn’t that wonderful! Now teens not only get a filmed manual on the quick and easy route on becoming a reality TV star, they’re going to get tips on how to handle their first divorce while studying for the SATs!
Mean Betty can see it now: if the ratings of the Leah/Corey divorce story arc does well, they can spin that idea off into a whole new series! Teen Divorce. We’ll get to watch stars who have retainers and toddlers fighting over the flat screen in front of a judge. And if that show goes well, perhaps kittens, we could get another show… Teen Second Marriage! Can you see it now? Teen moms trolling study halls looking for Mr. Right 3 2.
Or Teen Mom: Single Again. Kittens, we could all watch the teens juggle babies, arguing with in-laws, going to school (they do go to school, don’t they?) and …. dating! Watch Teen Mom Crystal frantically try to line up a babysitter for a hot Friday night date with an older man she met on Match.com, while studying for her chemistry mid-term and changing diapers at the same time!
If anyone can show teens the smart path to take in life, MTV can. As long as it doesn’t effect their ratings.
