Kim Kardashian vs. Amber Portwood: Who's Side Are You On?

Kim Kardashian is bashing Teen Mom, and Amber Portwood is not happy about it.

Kim Kardashiansays that the MTV reality drama Teen Mom glamorizes teen pregnancy and isn't appropriate for television. She also notes that she's never even consider having a baby at sixteen, given the level of responsibility and sacrifice it requires.

Amber Portwood contends that she isn't condoning teen pregnancy, and aside from that, Kim has no right to judge. Amber points out that Kim Kardashian became famous for having a sex tape that she profited from, which doesn't exactly make her role model material.

Whose side are you taking in the Kim vs. Amber debate? On one hand, I don't think being a pregnant teenager should earn you $180,000 per television season, and clearly Amber hasn't learned from her mistakes. She's announced possible pregnancies at least twice since Leah's birth, after all. Plus, she hit her on-again, off-again fiance Gary on several occasions. And, she let strange men move in with her and her baby.

On the other hand, Kim Kardashian secretly got married at 18 or a similar age and didn't even tell her parents. Then, she had a sex tape. Like Amber, she's really famous for no reason - just for her existence.

I think the moral of the story is that neither Kim Kardashian or Amber Portwood have made the world's best decisions, but when it comes down to it, I'm on Team Amber.
