'16 and Pregnant' Family -- Furious With MTV

12/2/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the families featured on this week's episode of MTV's "16 and Pregnant" is threatening to sue the network -- claiming producers schemed to portray them as reckless, unsupportive relatives.

Kathleen Green (left) -- the grandmother of baby daddy Isiah -- tells TMZ the network "defamed" her family because "nothing that aired is what happened" in real life.

Kathleen tells us MTV set up shots and heavily edited footage in the episode -- which revolves around Isiah, his baby mama Christinna (right) and the birth of their daughter Destiny.

Kathleen says she's particularly upset with a scene involving a DNA test she bought for Christinna -- claiming she came off as a cold-hearted bitch because MTV left out one key detail -- "They didn’t show that [Christinna] had told us she had had sex with some other guy."

Now, Green says her family wants to sue the network for defamation.

Calls to MTV have not been returned.

Actually it is probably true that a show will edit the show to be interesting...Real life just is pretty boring if you are watching it...but if they think they will win some suit over this; they need to read the contracts that they probably jumped at signing. It is always specified that this editing would happen to benefit the show...They signed that right over to the show.

This grandmother is full of SH*T. The girl clearly stated she has only had "one penis in her vagina" during that scene. And, even if Christinna did say she had sex with another guy, THE GRANDMOTHER'S BEHAVIOR WAS STILL DESPICABLE, THIS ENTIRE FAMILY BULLYING AND BERATING A 17 YR OLD GIRL IS NEVER OKAY. I did feel that the father of the baby, Isiah, was trying to do right by his child but the women in his family did nothing but bad mouth his wife!

Grandmama better read the contract she signed.
Probably nothing in there about making the family look good but plenty about editing to make the show entertaining to the viewers And I'm sure there is something in their contract about not holding them liable when they agreed to be filmed live and/or how it's edited.
