MTV is in the middle of another season of 16 and Pregnant, and we're about to meet a new star. Shelby wasn't 16 at the time of her pregnancy, but she was a teen, fresh out of high school/getting her GED, when she messed around with her ex one night and got pregnant. As if that wasn't hard enough to deal with, he had also knocked up another girl months earlier.
Now she'll share her story on 16 and Pregnant, but before the masses get to her [which I have full faith she'll be strong enough to handle], I wanted to ask her a few things:
- Have the Teen Moms reached out to her? Is it like a family?
- Did she hope getting pregnant would win him back? What will she say to people who ask if it was on purpose?
- Does she have a relationship with the other baby mama?
I shared some of my "teenaged toxic" decisions, because we've all been there. We've been lovesick and willing to do some dumb stuff to win them back. Spoiler alert: It doesn't work and then we just feel even more dumb. This goes for everyone.
I was also surprised to learn that she didn't apply for the show herself... it was actually because someone else applied and was denied that she ended up telling her story to the world.
