The Teen Mom 2 season 3 trailer is out, and guys? Let me just tell you -- I am scared. I'm scared for Leah Messer, for Kailyn Lowry, for Jenelle Evans, for Chelsea Houska, and for us, the viewers. This seems to be the season where people stop being polite, and start getting real. It should be named The Real World: Teen Mom (cross branding opportunity there, MTV!) because the trailer shows rehab stints, custody battles, jail time, and divorce filings. No more happy happy joy joy we're so young and in love with our boyfriends and our babies! Nuh uh. Shit's going down this season.
The show's been criticized for glamorizing teen motherhood, but after seeing this trailer, it'd be hard to argue this show's doing anything to make it seem desirable to be a young, broke, single mom. Sure, these ladies are getting tens of thousands of dollars to share their lives with the nation, and while the paycheck may be appealing, the drama certainly isn't.
What they're going to go through this season looks terrifying. Somebody hug me.
The season premiere is Monday November 12 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
Thoughts on season 3?
