File this under: what the actual fuck? In case you haven’t heard, Bristol Palin, daughter of former Vice President nominee Sarah Palin, is joining the cast of Teen Mom OG…even though she wasn’t on the show ever before, and she isn’t currently a teen mom?
What’s even stupider if that MTV is paying her a whopping $250,000 to be on the show. That’s right, MTV is paying Bristol Palin $250k because she got knocked up as a teenager a goddamn decade ago! You know how much MTV paid me for getting knocked up at 27 and 30? NOTHING.
The entire Teen Mom franchise has been a mess since it first aired however many years ago (8 or 9, maybe?), and it seems like Us Weekly is always reporting that someone from that damn show has been arrested again. PLUS, it gave us Farrah fucking Abraham who is the accumulation of everything wrong with American society, so I’m really not 100% sure what they’re trying to do bringing Bristol Palin into this mix? I mean, do they think bringing in Sarah Palin’s daughter will class things up?
Also, it is fucking RIDICULOUS that they are paying her $250,000 to be on this show. It’s ridiculous all these idiots are making bank from this shit.
I didn’t get pregnant until I had two degrees, owned my own home, was in my late-twenties, and was married, and you know how much money MTV offered to pay me for a reality show? ZERO NINETY NINE!
Where’s my reality show about being a suburban wife and mom, disgruntled grad student, and mediocre celebrity blogger?! I feel like a show that’s high point is me drinking alone and watching Dirty Dancing is what the world has been waiting for, so MTV (or the women’s network) really needs to write me a check.
