Step aside Maci, Farrah, Catelynn and Amber...there's a new set of teenagers in town - a.k.a. the new cast of "Teen Mom 2!"
The latest issue of US Magazine reveals the names of the "16 and Pregnant" alums set to star in MTV's second installment of the hit reality show, set to air on January 11th at 10:00 pm. As these young ladies navigate through the peaks and pitfalls of new parenthood, it's gearing up to be another drama bonanza.
According to US Magazine, here's a little bit about the new cast:
- Leah Messer: After dating beau Corey Simms for a month, the 18-year-old cheerleader discovered she was pregnant...with twins! (Yikes!) Now a proud mama to Aliannah and Aleeah (now 12 months old) Leah and Cory have broken up because she cheated with an ex.
- Jenelle Evans: 19-year-old mother to 16-month-old Jace is estranged from Jace's father, 25-year-old Andrew Lewis.
- Kailyn Lowry: After her family all but abandoned her when she found out she was pregnant with now 11-month-old son Isaac, Lowry found comfort from with the family of Jonathan "Jo" Rivera - Isaac's dad. Where is she living now? You'll have to tune in to find out.
- Chelsea Houska: This 19-year-old mother to Aubree, now 15 months, fought bitterly with her ex (and Aubree's father), Adam Lind, also 19-years-old. Lind was nowhere to be found for the three weeks following Aubree's birth and even went so far as to call Aubree "a mistake." Ouch. Have they reconciled?
"Frankly, the whole idea of this show makes me sick. It's glamorizing teenage pregnancy and minimizing how very hard raising children can be...even for middle-age, married adults," said Mary T of Cincinnati.
Do tell: What do you think? Will you watch the show or do you feel like is purely exploitation of these young girls?
