'Being a Teen Mom Isn't Cool': Kim Kardashian Slams TV Reality Phenomenon

She has made a living out of being a famous reality star.
But there's a line which the TV cameras should not cross, according to Kim Kardashian.
The 30-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to her blog today, to warn girls against idolising the stars of shows like MTV's Teen Mom.

'It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls...but girls, these are not people you should idolise!' she wrote.
 

Kim, who looked low key in jeans and a casual cardigan as she left the MTV studios in New York yesterday, was affected by a teenage pregnancy story which ran as she made an earlier appearance on The Today Show.
The report said that 90 students had either given birth this year or were pregnant at a school in Memphis.
'When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby,' wrote Kim, who is currently promoting her new reality spin-off, Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

'Having a baby is one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I'm not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn't be seen as the trendy thing to do.'
Teen pregnancy TV shows such as Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2 and 16 and Pregnant have made stars out of Leah Messer and Jenelle Evans and Amber Portwood, who earns $280,000 a year from her appearances in the MTV show.
But today, she hit back at Kim's comments.
"There's actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies have gone down,' Amber told E! News.
'Last time I checked, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape floating around on the internet and I'm pretty sure she made a lot of money off of it.
'She made a sex tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom?'
According to Amber, who has a two-year-old daughter called Leah,  the show does not make the girls' lives look easy.
'If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us,' 
'It doesn't glamorise anything. It shows the heartache we've all gone through.
'We may be 'celebrities' because our face is out there, but it's only because we've done some bad things. That's not glamorous.'
