The Week in Review: Michelle Duggar, Teen Mom 2 and Supernanny

Despite the fact that I was in the 'Michelle Duggar should stop having kids' camp, my sympathies go out to the Duggar family after Michelle's recent miscarriage. That being said, I hope Josie's premature birth and this occasion help Michelle and Jim Bob realize that 19 kids are enough. It's understandable to want a large family, but once your kids start having kids, it may be time to take a step back, enjoy the kids you have, and enjoy being a grandmother. Besides, the older kids are already raising the younger ones...at least give them a break. If the Duggars still don't believe in birth control, perhaps abstinence would be a good idea at this time.

Teen Mom 2 is back on MTV, and it's the same old stuff as last season. Kailyn dates Jordan, Leah and Corey are tumultuous, Jenelle dates Keiffer again and learns nothing, and Chelsea falls for Adam yet again. I'm sure the show will be on the air for many more seasons because people (myself included) keep watching, but it's so played out. I can't keep watching Jenelle fall for Keiffer and Chelsea fall for Adam.

I watched America's Supernanny, and it's hardly riveting...but I do like the supernanny that the show chose. Her name is Deborah Tillman, and she certainly knows her stuff when it comes to childcare. I like that she's got more attitude than the previous television nannies - she tells it like it is. That being said, the concept is so played out, and despite the fact that Lifetime tried to be edgy by featuring a lesbian family, a nanny show is still a nanny show, and it's hardly exciting.

Khloe Kardashian was sued for shoving a transgendered woman a few years ago. This isn't surprising, considering the Kardashians are hardly known for making great decisions, but Khloe's supposed to be the most rational, or so I thought. On another Kardashian note, I tried to see if I could look past the Kardashian name and like the Kardashian Kollection at Sears...and I can't. Super tacky, much like the Kardashians themselves. And, aside from that, they were accused of copying designs from actual designers, which only makes everything worse. Not kool, Kardashians.

Update: Khloe is now getting fertility treatments to have a baby. Good luck, Khloe!

Hulk Hogan and ex-wife Linda Bollea are still at war. Linda was given 70% of Hulk Hogan's assets in their divorce, per Perez Hilton, and claims that Hulk had frequent affairs with men. Hulk, of course, is mad about this and is trying to get Linda to shut up by way of a lawsuit. Classy, classy family.
