Giving whores like this reality shows only encourages this behavior. Basically what you are teaching people is that if you act inappropriately (the trashier the better) then you'll get paid big bucks to be on TV. I refuse to watch it. I have better things to do. And yes, I realize that just sitting here typing this seems hypocritical, but seriously people... this is not entertainment. No talent, no common sense, no education seems to = STAR! ugh

About time the role swicthes to beatches like this. Bet this happens far more to guys than we know as most would hide from societies PC view on this. Smack her where it hurts - wallet and pride....and grab a tittie while you're at it.

What a loser skank. She's calling him a fat ass?? She's a violent cow. All I heard coming out of her mouth was, "Moo." She's a poster child for farm animals. Someone needs to take her kid away.

This girl is not the enemy, Gary is a dead beat dad that is 4 years older than her which means he should have been in jail for getting a teenager pregnant. She finally gets away from him last year with her welfare apartment and he moves in, won't work, won't help with the baby, constantly puts her down. She has no parents to help her. I don't blame her, he deserved the beat down. You people who think he is the victim apparently don't watch the show.

@104 Oh Stephanie, do you believe EVERYTHING you see on tv? You probably still believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa. There's two sides to every story. Regardless of how old she was, she knew exactly what she was getting herself into. We've all been taught to know what's right and what's wrong from a very young age. Apparently, her parents didn't have a problem with it, otherwise something would've been done. GROW UP!

She's lucky he didn't turn around and punch her teeth into the back of her skull. Which is what she deserves.

Ahh...the benefits that come from being on "Teen Mom" formula donated to you as part of your compensation...fame and celebrity knowing you have brought a bastard child into this world...a home at the best trailer park that money can buy...and a felony on your record because you think just because you are a female...that THAT would exempt you from justice...haul that trashy bitchy bitch to jail and take her child away from her.

I don't think shows like this should be made. It sends the message that if I get pregnant as a teen I can get on TV. But that's just my opinion. As far as the idiocy in this video.....well I don't think I need to say too much because her actions say it well enough. After seeing this I sure hope that CPS takes a really good look at the welfare of their child. Don't think she should be the one with custody.

She says hates him and thinks he's a fat piece of crap, yet unless it was another immaculate conception, somehow his seed entered her vajayjay and 9 months later she squeezed out his progeny. Like it or not, the two of you are now connected FOREVER kiddo. Thing is, the dude loses out either way because if he puts hands on her even in self defense, he goes to jail, and if he presses charges, everyone looks at him and say's "a GIRL beat you up?.... Really?" Seems like she wanted him do retaliate so she could press charges, but oops... forgot about dem pesky cameras. You have been served!
