The stars of Teen Mom have certainly pushed the envelope, haven't they? Between Farrah Abraham and her porn deal and Jenelle Evans and her arrest for heroin possession, the reality stars have dominated the headlines with their scandalous antics. But just wait! Those are the stories you've heard about.
What about all the crazy stories that haven't made the news? Those are out now too thanks to Sean Daly and Ashley Majeski, authors of an explosive new book, Teen Mom Confidential: Secrets and Scandals From MTV's Most Controversial Shows. A journalist who writes about TV for the New York Post, Daly teamed up with Majeski, editor of The Ashleys Reality Roundup, to dig deep into the world of these young parents. They made it all the way down to rock bottom, and they shared a taste with The Stir.
Get a load of some of the most shocking revelations to come out of their book:
1. When one star was arrested, cops had to use two sets of cuffs to secure his hands.
2. Tyler Baltierra's dad Butch Baltierra gave an explosive interview to the authors. One of his confessions was an allegation that stepdaughter (and future daughter-in-law) Catelynn Lowell was in on a scheme to sell a fake pregnancy story to the tabloids.
3. One star used a portion of his earnings from the show to pay for his sister's boob job.

4. MTV found Amber Portwood more or less on accident. They planned to shoot a different reality show featuring her brother Shawn, but Shawn bailed. His wife heard they were looking for pregnant teens and pointed them to Amber.
5. Friends of one star reported she often sported injuries on her neck from being choked ... by her husband.
6. Corey Simms cheated on Leah Messer Calvert during their marriage, but he flat-out refused to talk about it on MTV, so Leah took the fall for the marriage going south.
7. One teen mom was told to get an abortion ... by the mother of her child's dad! It's something she holds against her to this day.
8. Stormie Clark, mother of Farrah's baby daddy, got to see Sophia once without Farrah knowing -- she saw the little girl with her babysitter at a park and convinced the sitter to let her cuddle the baby and hang out with her. Stormie shared a letter to Sophia that is printed in full in the book.
9. One star and her boyfriend got into such a big fight in a hotel that they got kicked out ... and it wasn't Jenelle Evans!
10. One star tried to use a magazine with her face on the cover as proof of ID when she went to buy cigarettes.
