The rumors are true!
If you’re a fan of Pitocin-fueled delivery room screaming matches, douche-nugget baby-daddies and poorly shot video footage, you’re in luck! MTV has revealed that it is now casting for 16 and Pregnant Season 5!
The Ashley was shocked to hear that the network was choosing to do another season of the show, since, while writing her book, Teen Mom Confidential, many of the girls from the previous seasons told her that there would be no more ’16 and Pregnant’ and that production for the show had shut down and moved on. However, MTV is never one to miss the chance to make a buck off of teenage girls in crisis, so, in hindsight, it’s not all that surprising that they’d choose to do another season.
The network posted a casting notice on its website a few weeks ago. Here”s an excerpt from the casting notice:
Our goal is to give viewers a look inside the realities of teen pregnancy — from morning sickness and balancing school responsibilities to navigating incredibly difficult decisions and relationships with boyfriends and/or parents, ultimately to the day of the baby’s arrival and beyond. MTV is looking for young women from varying backgrounds who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and would like to share their personal story about this life-changing and complicated journey.
As much as I should be saying that I think they should cancel this show because it’s lost its original message and now just promotes teen pregnancy…I can’t. I freaking love this crap. The Ashley is so excited!
Another season means:
-More ’16 and Pregnant’ recaps from The Ashley (I promise I’ll actually do them this season!)
-The potential of a ‘Teen Mom 4′
As always, The Ashley will be on guard and will try to bring you exclusive details on the girls that end up getting cast for Season 5 before anyone else!
If you love ’16 and Pregnant’ and have always wondered whatever happened to the girls from the first four seasons, you should probably buy The Ashley’s book, Teen Mom Confidential: Secrets and Scandals From MTV’s Most Controversial Shows! It features updates on ALL of the girls ever featured on ’16 and Pregnant’ (even the ones that fell off the face of the Earth!) The book can be on Amazon and Kindle, or on iTunes.
