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?

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.
