Kim Kardashian Slams Teen Mom, Amber Portwood Hits Back

Before her fame on “Keeping of With the Kardashians,” Kim Kardashian was known for more than just her lawyer father and Olympic gold medalist step-dad.

Her celebrity status exploded after the release of her sex tape with R&B singer Ray-J. Kardashian, who has since become one of the biggest reality stars ever, decided to comment on MTV’s “Teen Mom,” this angering one of the show’s cast members.

Kim wrote on her blog:

While I was at the Today Show this morning I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!

Amber Portwood, in an interview with E! News, was quick to bring up Kardashian’s sex tape, which Portwood said she had done when she was younger than most of the girls on “Teen Mom.”

Portwood is, perhaps, the most controversial character to come out of the show.

Portwood also defended the controversial MTV show.

She said that, since the original airing of “16 & Pregnant,” the number of teen pregnancies had actually gone down. The show has been accused of glamorizing teen pregnancy, but Portwood points out that she and the other cast members are only celebrity because they’ve done some bad things.

Kardashian had said in one of her blog posts that the show was making teen pregnancy cool in the eyes of young girls and that the cast members were not people you should idolize.
