EXCLUSIVE: Our Interview with Matt McCann

I had the opportunity to exclusively talk with Matt McCann from Teen Mom 3. Most of you will remember Matt because of his struggles with addiction, which was seen during his entire time on MTV. Since filming has ended, he's cleaned up his act, and we saw on the Teen Mom 3 reunion special that he passed his drug test and seemed to be doing much better. Since then, Matt has found love in a girl named Lekota Koch, a job, and a sense of peace that wasn't present while he was on MTV.

Mackenzie's Pregnancy Problems

As we all know, Josh and Mackenzie McKee, from Teen Mom 3, are currently expecting a baby girl. The baby isn't due until February 27th, but due to Mackenzie's type 1 diabetes, it's very possible that she won't be able to carry the baby to her due date. Currently, she is around 36 weeks pregnant, and she's been encountering some extreme problems with her pregnancy throughout the last few days.

This Week In Teen Mom News

1. Alex Sekella's grandma buys her a drug test

A few days ago, Alex posted a photo of this home drug test to her Instagram account with the caption "NO HATE: my gram went to the dollar store n brought this just for me cuz I let her read everything on the internet n she laughs n says just to make u lol. She always knows how to give me a good laugh haha" While I'm not entirely sure what that even means, I can say that if someone gave me a drug test, I probably wouldn't laugh out loud. Also, why would anyone monitor what their grandma reads on the internet? Oh, Alex. Never a dull moment.

Briana Dejesus Is Bad At Twitter

Last night, Teen Mom 3 "star" (I use -star- very loosely here), Briana Dejesus got a little frisky with her twitter account. She decided to upload a very racy photo to her followers with the caption "This could be us but U ain't texting back". Look, I'm pretty easy going when it comes to things like this, but even I know this was an over-the-line photo to upload. I mean she has 131k followers, many of whom are likely teen girls, and the photo she uploaded was ... hrm ... well, let's just say it wouldn't even be shown on Cinemax.

The Battle Between Alex and Matt

About a week ago, news got around that Alex may have a boyfriend. Now, normally people would be happy for a single mother to find someone who can treat her and her child like they deserve, but people began getting a little hesitant when they found out that the guy Alex was allegedly dating has a colorful criminal record, and a past that isn't squeaky clean.

Does MTV Promote or Prevent Teen Pregnancy?

The New York Times released some information from a study in an article yesterday talking about how the shows 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom have helped to decline the teen pregnancy rate in the United States. The article was quoted as saying "A new economic study of Nielsen television ratings and birth records suggests that the show she [Kailyn Lowry] appeared in, "16 and Pregnant," and its spinoffs may have prevented more than 20,000 births to teenage mothers in 2010."

Battle Of The Teen Moms

As most of you already know, the rumor I posted last week has been confirmed over the weekend. Teen Mom 3 officially received the ax, leaving all 15 of their fans left out in the cold (I kid, sort of). The cast of the show took to twitter over the weekend to express their sour grapes as they took shots at the two successful versions of Teen Mom in the process. It's a pretty hilarious read for many reasons, and you can read the entire thing at starcasm, but I'll post some highlights.

Teen Mom 3, See Ya, Hardly Knew Ya

I have it on good authority that Teen Mom 3 will not be renewed for a second season. That's all I can really write about it considering I didn't even watch the season, but I wasn't alone. The highest rated episode was the season premiere at only 1.8 million viewers, and the numbers only went down from there. To put it in perspective, Teen Mom 2's season 1 premiere received 3.5 million viewers, and topped 4 million a few times before dropping quite a bit during season 3. The lowest rated Teen Mom 2 episode was rated at 1.13 million viewers, and that was on Christmas Eve (not a good time for TV ratings).
