'Teen Mom' Stars' Boob Jobs Are None of MTV's Business

Jenelle EvansWellllll, this is a first. Rumor has it MTV has decided to ban future boob jobs for the stars of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. Coming on the heels of rumors that Jenelle Evans is going in for a fake set of twins, it's got just enough possibility to it that I could see it happening. But that doesn't mean it should.

Yes, I just came down on the side of letting these girls have their breast enhancement surgeries. But let's just clear one thing up right now: I don't think they should have plastic surgery. I just don't think MTV gets to say what these girls do with their own bodies.

Because they are still the girls' bodies, correct? I mean, they've been a nice meal ticket for the producers since 16 & Pregnant first aired, but they only sold their kids' childhoods and their privacy for money that, admittedly, they wouldn't otherwise have to feed and clothe their kids. They didn't sell their skin and souls.

The story is MTV has gotten sick of the "sexed-up" image that the girls are developing in the tabloids. They want to bring things back down to the much more wholesome level of 16-year-olds who have unprotected sex! Oh thank you for that MTV, that was the best laugh I've had in weeks!

There isn't a person alive who thinks Jenelle Evans and Amber Portwood will be role models just as long as they keep the doctors from slipping silicone into their chests. That ship has sailed my dears. We watch the Teen Mom shows for a "what not to do" warning for our teenagers, not to get tips on how to raise a great kid.

If these girls want to waste their money on breast augmentation instead of putting it away for orthodontia and college for their kiddos, they're foolish. But that's none of MTV's business.

Where do you think the line ends over what MTV can and cannot tell these girls to do?

They shouldn't get plastic surgery because they don't know what their bodies will do later. They should wait till their mid twenties then have at it...

Hmm. I agree that they should wait. Their bodies are still developing. My breasts didn't fully develop until I was mid-twenties, which is now. And I feel like they are still growing.

As far as MTV goes, no I don't think they should be allowed to tell anyone what to do with their own bodies. But, on the other hand, they signed up for the show and I have to assume the money they are going to use came from MTV. Tough call.

idk one minute they're exploiting them even though the girls volunteer and get paid then next they shouldn't try to control the show's image. They can't win even though ppl don't seem to let it stop them from watching.

i don't believe it's any of mtv's business, either. but i do believe most weeks the writers on this site are complaining about how mtv doesn't do anything about the bahavior of the 'stars' on these shows and now you're complaining they're overstepping their bounds. can't have it both ways.

I disagree, I think MTV has every right to say what they can and can't do with the money that MTV IS PAYING THEM while under contract! Also, I think it sets a horrible exampe that the teen moms are whining about being broke on the show and then running out and getting plastic surgery. Not saying the girls are role models by any means but they are suppose to be showing the difficulties of being a teen mom and how glamourous that I can destroy my boobs being pregnant, giving birth, and nursing then run out and buy a new pair... MTV needs to tighten up their contracts cause how many of these girls are being arrested, losing custody of their kids, etc. Cry me a river for these girs they want to be adults then act like it... baby comes first NOT BOOBS! That $6,000 boob job would be a nice college fund for their child!

In addition I would just like to say that when actors, models, etc are under contract there are always strict guidelines to what they can and can't do to their bodies and even in their personal lives because of how it'll effect the show, campaign, or whatever they're doing. For instance, Ashlee Simpson was not allowed to change her hair color during her couple year run with 7th Heaven and the minute the show ended she got excited cause she was finally allowed to dye it. If the girls don't want to be told what they're not allowed to do then quit the show and forfit the money!

Nick n Jorie. Once MTV pays those girls to be on their show, that money belongs to THEM.

Your employer doesn't get a say in what you do with "the money they pay you" just like MTV doesn't get a say in what those girls do with "the money they pay them" Why the hell would you want to open that door to where people can say what others do with money they pay them for a particular job? Are you out of your damn mind?

they r alil young 2 be thinking about/doing it specially if they r going 2 have more kids but MTV has NNOOOOOOOO right 2 say they cant get plastic surgery or whatever else they wanna do... if MTV did not want plastic surgery done they should have stated that in the beginning not all this time later.... specially after some already have... maybe MTV should worry more about the one wanted 2 do porn instead of the one thatt wants a boob job... and if this is the last season of teen mom than teen mom 2 will end soon as well and MTV cant say shit....

Stephen Dedalus

As long as they're working for MTV, you'd better believe that MTV can tell them what to do. Sure, they can do whatever the heck they want; and then MTV can dump them and find other brainless teens (no chance of running out of those).

It's actually quite easy.

MTV has every right to say they can't do certain things. That's the deal you make to be part of the media industry.
