MTV’s Twitter List for the cast: twitter.com/MTV/teen-mom
The girls originally featured on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” followed by the the first season of “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell are back on July 5, 2011 for “Teen Mom 3.” MTV announced the news in alignment with the National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy back on May 4, 2011. I have a particular affinity to this group of gals over any other from the Teen Mom series and have followed them on the show and in the tabloids. Now that these gals, who would otherwise be unknown, have juggled young motherhood, choosing adoption, relationships, court battles, and fame, it’ll be interesting to see if MTV has truly done a service to these teens. We can also look forward to a series of Public Service Announcements from the young moms via the It’s Your Sex Life campaign where they’ll speak about teenage pregnancy and prevention. There are several already uploaded on the Teen Mom 3 homepage.
Here are some updates since “Teen Mom” aired with this cast:
- Farrah and Maci reportedly had breast implants. (read The Superficial: Teen Mom Farrah is in a bikini, and those are definitely implants and read Holly Baby: Teen Mom Maci Bookout shows off her new implants)
- Amber’s been going through the court system regarding her fight with on again, off again boyfriend Gary Shirley that aired during their season. (read Radar Online: Teen Mom Amber rejects house arrest plea deal)
- Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are still together and maintaining contact with their daughter Carly who they gave up for adoption. They seem to be the only couple that has remained intact…for better or for worse is some still to be determined.
