What do you Think about MTV launching a New Teen Mom in the UK?

teen-mom

MTV is taking its hit show Teen Mom across the pond. The music cable network, known more for its revolutionary and break-thru reality Television shows, announced that it will launch its Brit version in Autumn 2016.

“We’ll use this expertise to give Teen Mom a fresh lease of life, combined with a unique British twist, which we’re confident will have massive appeal to local audiences,” MTV UK‘s Jill Offman said.  “MTV UK has a great track record of re-versioning hit shows from our sister channel in the U.S. – we turned Jersey Shore into Geordie Shore and smashed ratings records in the process.”

There have been 12 seasons of Teen Mom, which started as a short run docu-series called 16 and Pregnant, and it has spun off several celebrities: Farrah Abraham,  Jenelle Evans, Caitlynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout and Leah Messer.

If you’re biggest star from the show is beefing with Nicki Minaj, that’s winning, um…we guess. (snark)

And MTV is asking for Brit teen moms to apply. Oh boy!

What do you think? Excited? Bad idea?

For the #VMA’s, Dove Reminds Women to #SpeakBeautiful About Other Women

speak beautiful

Tomorrow is the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) and in an effort to combat all the negativity shared by and between young girls and women in social media, Dove wants to shift the dialogue from all the recent controversial headlines related to Miley vs. Nicki, Nicki vs. Taylor, Taylor vs. Katy, or any combination of the three.

They recognize that loads of real girls and even celebs like P!nk and Selena Gomez have recently been the victims of social media attacks based on their looks alone.

During the VMAs this weekend, Dove is encouraging women and girls to #SpeakBeautiful when posting comments about other women on Twitter.  The #SpeakBeautiful campaign launched earlier this year on Oscar night and we’re taking it to the next big event, the VMAs, to help change the social media conversation that affects our self-esteem.

In fact, we know 8 out of 10 women encounter negativity on social media that is hurtful/destructive to their self-esteem and it’s time for a change.

Since it launched the campaign, Dove states it has seen  69% more positive Tweets pertaining to how women talk about their own appearance, versus the previous year.

Tomorrow, @Dove on Twitter plans to monitor the language said about women by other women.

Join in and Be Kind.

 London, meanwhile, will play Louise Saint, Franklin’s party-girl aunt.

Snooki & JWOWW give up reality TV to become fulltime stay-at-home moms

The Jersey Shore era has officially ended.

Next Wednesday will be the last episode of the spin off, Snooki & JWOWW, to the wildly popular MTV reality TV show which featured the some alcohol-induced, testosterone bucking and ratchet debauchery days and nights of a group of friends who vacationed on the New Jersey shore for summer vacation. The original show ran from 2009 to 2012 ending with the season Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was pregnant. 

Jennifer “JWOWW” Farley penned a sweet note alerting her fans of the end on her blog:

The end of Snooki and JWOWW is near! As women, it’s all about our kids. We don’t care about getting our hair or makeup done. We’re basically stay-at-home moms. The “Snooki and JWoww” series finale airs next Wednesday where you will see Snooki and Jionni get married and our baby Meilani get christened. It’s the end of a big chapter of our lives and it’s bittersweet. I think both Snooki and I want our kids to grow up having normal lives and not be in front of the cameras 24/7. We did it as adults so we had a choice, it’s time we let them have that choice to. Just because we won’t be on your TV screens anymore doesn’t mean you won’t be hearing our honest and dirty rambles! You just have to stay tuned to see where we’ll be next! Can’t wait for the next chapter in our lives! XOXO

This show lasted only two seasons because it appears there’s no ratings for breastfeeding moms. *snark*
I am actually that old that I remember when MTV used to just do specials in the summer following a few kids to the shore (not this group) for vacation and never imagined it would turn into a full-time show that will create stardom for its cast members. (Nicole has over 6 million followers on Twitter and JWOWW has close to 4 Million). At times, it was the highest rated show for the music network. 
Polizzi, who has two children, has gone on to pen a New York Times best seller and has a bunch of other lucrative entrepreneurial ventures.  Jennifer “JWOWW” Farley, too started a tanning lotion line and sells many products as well as appears on a variety of other reality TV shows on TV.
Among some of the other successful cast mates include Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino who has his own show on TVGN about his life and Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio is a highly-paid and sought after DJ who has worked with 50 Cent to Britney Spears.
It was a fun ride. 
Time for full time mommyhood! What do you think of their decision?

‘Snooki and JWoww’ new season is all about the girls’ respective pregnancy

Former Bellyitch Bumpwatch moms Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her bestie Jennifer “JWoww” Farley have done a 180 on the fourth season of their MTV hit show  Snooki & JWoww.
At the beginning of the season which debuted this past November 5th, Farley is nine months pregnant and Polizzi is three months along. So the season is about the girls trying to still be their fun and crazy selves whilst carrying their respective bundle  of joy! 
As we know, since taping, olizzi has given birth to her second child, daughter Giovanna Marie LaValle and Farley welcomed her first Meilani Alexandra Matthews
What a far cry from their days on The Jersey Shore. And I am so old, I remember waaaaaay back when I was a young MTV regular viewer and the Jersey Shore was just a short short 2-4 episode docu-series about a group of kids on their summer break.
I could not imagine back then, it would have become such a hit reality TV show and would have spawned such mega reality TV stars, all who have matured quite a bit before our eyes.
Anway, check out Zap2it’s interview with the two where they dish about being pregnant together.

Inside Vanessa Lachey’s baby shower

Vanessa Lachey and Nick Lachey joined family and friends over the weekend to celebrate the impending arrival of their second child, a baby girl.

Vanessa, wearing a cute black and white Rachel Pally dress,  shared a photo on her Instagram account on Saturday, November 1 with the caption, “Today was a good day! The perfect ‘sprinkle’ of love.”

It seems like “sprinkle” was part of the theme for the event as Vanessa’s pal Candice Piel used the word when captioning a group pic of Nessa with all her close gal pals who organized the event in seemingly coordinated pink and gold colors.
The TV host and former 98 Degrees boy band member and the former host of MTV‘s Total Request Live are already parents to 2-year old Camden.
Nick announced that the new baby was a girl this summer, US Weekly reports.
Looks like fun!

Grab your tissue and Watch Kevin Durant’s NBA MVP Speech dedicated to his mom (VIDEO/TRANSCRIPT

We interrupt this regularly scheduled pregnancy blog to bring you this touching tear-jerking moment from today’s speech from the newly-announced 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City, Thunder.
After winning the honors for the first time and beating out multi-year winner LeBron James, the dynamic forward gave a teary salute to all those who supported him in his life and basketball career.
But when he got to the part about his mom, *sniff*….can barely type through that part and it’s so fitting given that Mother’s Day in the US is this Sunday. 
“When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate, ” he said. “You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”
Here is the part of the video of the speech when he talks about his mom with the full text of the speech below. (h/t Business Insider) Grab your tissues:

TEXT:
“I don’t think you know what you did. You had my brother when you were 18 years old. Three years later I came out. The odds were stacked against him. Single parent with two boys by the time you were 21 years old.
“Everybody told us we weren’t supposed to be here. We moved from apartment to apartment by ourselves. One of the best memories I have is when we moved into our first apartment. No bed, no furniture, and we just all sat in the living room and hugged each other because we thought we made it.
“When something good happens to you, I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to look back to what brought me here. You woke me up in the middle of the night in the summer times. Making me run up a hill. Making me do push-ups. Screaming at me from the sidelines at my games at eight or nine years old.
“We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe. You kept us off the street, put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real MVP.”
