'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.

Let's get this straight you're saying you went on MTV and expected to be portrayed as an upstanding citizen? Your 16 year old got knocked up. It's 2010, you all look like ignorant trash. This case will be thrown out.

Brenda’s got a Baby
Brenda’s got a Baby

I hear Brenda’s got a baby
But, Brenda’s barely got a brain
A damn shame
The girl can hardly spell her name
(That’s not our problem, that’s up to Brenda’s family)
Well let me show ya how it affects the whole community
Now Brenda really never knew her moms and her dad was a
junky
Went in death to his arms, it’s sad
Cause I bet Brenda doesn’t even know
Just cause your in the ghetto doesn’t mean ya can’t grow
But oh, that’s a thought, my own revelation
Do whatever it takes to resist the temptation
Brenda got herself a boyfriend
Her boyfriend was her cousin, now lets watch the joy end
She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family
Who didn’t really care to see, or give a damn if she
Went out and had a church of kids
As long as when the check came they got first dibs
Now Brenda’s belly is gettin bigger
But no one seems to notice any change in her figure
She’s 12 years old and she’s having a baby
In love with the molester, who’s sexing her crazy
And yet she thinks that he’ll be with her forever
And dreams of a world with the two of them are together,
whatever
He left her and she had the baby solo, she had it on the
bathroom floor
And didn’t know so, she didn’t know, what to throw away and
what to keep
She wrapped the baby up and threw him in the trash heep
I guess she thought she’d get away
Wouldn’t hear the cries
She didn’t realize
How much the the little baby had her eyes
Now the baby’s in the trash heep balling
Momma can’t help her, but it hurts to hear her calling
Brenda wants to run away
Momma say, you makin’ me lose pay, the social workers here
everyday
Now Brenda’s gotta make her own way
Can’t go to her family, they won’t let her stay
No money no babysitter, she couldn’t keep a job
She tried to sell crack, but end up getting robbed
So now what’s next, there ain’t nothing left to sell
So she sees sex as a way of leaving hell
It’s paying the rent, so she really can’t complain
Prostitute, found slain, and Brenda’s her name, she’s got a baby

Baby

(don’t you know she’s got a baby)
(don’t you know she’s got a baby)
(don’t you know she’s got a baby)
(don’t you know she’s got a baby)
(don’t you know she’s got a baby)
(don’t you know she’s got a baby)

Wow. This is absurd. I know Christinna personally. Isiah's grandmother just doesn't want to realize that her grandson has made a mistake (like all of us do) and now has a child. Isiah and Christinna love their baby Destiny and just want her to live in a good environment. Mrs. Green needs to become a loving greatgrandmother instead of a hateful woman.

As soon as I read the headline, I immediately knew it was about this family before I saw the picture. I couldn't believe how disrespectfully his family treated Christinna! His grandmother wouldn't even speak to her directly! It's unfortunate that his family seems to consist of the kind of people who have always have a chip on their shoulder - the world owes them everything. They DEMAND respect from everyone else, but cannot SHOW respect at all.

LOL... the grandma is mad because her grandson cant go to the NFL and make her sorry ass "Rich" This type of ignorant people always look for loop holes in society to try and get a little bit of chump change what a sorry ass family.

This teen should just move back to upstate NY with her Mom.

The grandmother should have used some kind of restraint in her conversation. She did in fact make that young lady look like an idiot. her grandson made his own choice not to go to college. That was his excuse not to attend if you ask me. And, his sister turned her back on Christiana as well. it's a shame.lesson learned the hard way.

All I know is that all those words came out of their mouths, so it’s as real as you can expect from a “reality show”. They should know better than to say dumb sh_t in front of a camera. Anything you say WILL be used against you. LOL I think grandma had no idea what an terrible sounding person she is until now. They have no case.

YOU KNOW WHAT, THE GRANDMA WAS HARSH BUT I KNOW FOR A FACT SHE LOVES HER FAMILY AND HAS THE RIGHT TO SPEAK HER MIND. THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. MTV DID LEAVE THINGS OUT. 1 FACT IS THAT THEY DID GET A DNA TEST. THEY JUST DIDN'T TELL CHRISTINA AND GUESS WHAT 99.9% NOT HIS!! WHY ARENT YALL TELLING PEOPLE. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? THE CHILD TO GET 18

to all of you who are bashing mtv and the shows they play. Why do you watch the show's if you don't like them??? Cable has over hundreds of channels and most of them do play crap and thats why I DONT watch them channels. Its not like mtv is the only channel you got. If you don't like it then don't watch it. If your underage kids are in love with the show then every cable box is capable of blocking particular shows. PROBLEM SOLVED...Shows like this will always be aired as majority of the people DO like this show meaning the few of you that bash it are just wasting your time judging it. You people hating are just haters. Change the channel if this show gets your pannies in a wod that easily. geeeez

I watched this episode and the idiot grandmother that bought the DNA test for them tossed it at them at the dinner table with the phrase "here, I can't read but I bought it"...seriously, the idiot can't read and she has the nerve to accuse her great granddaughter's mother of cheating which quite frankly is none of her business and not her place to insist on sh*t. All grandma is a is a money hungry bit*ch...whatever.

its not about teens guna get pregnant to b famous. if your teen wants to get pregnant to b famous & does it then u obviously done something rong as a parent. U should b parenting ur child to know bout the things on TV.. if ur kid goes in your room & sees a porno u have then if u tell them haven sex is ok & to do it on tv then they guna go screw sum1 n video tape it r b a porn star. if a kid likes horror movies if u dont teach them that a man beatin his wife is rong then theyll beat there wife. if a theres a movie where a teen is doin drugs , its ok for a teen to do drugs???????? so if ur kid sees a 16yr preg u teach them its not rite. the show is bout showin teens how hard n difficult it is strugglin to take care of a baby. y u think at the end of the show it says.. TEEN PREGNANY IS 100% preventable! so if they think getin preg will get them famous on tv.. y they dont do drugs & n on tru life r intervention.. its not.. & if ur kid is that young dont u think u should have MTV BLOCKED??? cuz its to mature for there minds?? think outsidde the box. its not the kid its the parent..
