Meet the New 16 & Pregnant Girls
by Ally Pereira
As we all know, 16 & Pregnant season 4 begins next week. It’s been rumored that MTV specifically looked for girls who came from well-off families after the scandals and drama of last year. This season’s girls have been announced (mostly by the girls’ Twitter pages themselves) and we say hello to Katie Yeager, Lindsey Harrison, Hope Harbert, Mackenzie Douthit, Sarah Roberts, Jordan Howard, Sabrina Solares, Myranda Trevino, Alexandria Sekella, Kristina Robinson, Devon Broyles, and Brianna DeJesus. The girls have already seemed to form a friendship bond and are on their way to NYC today for 16 & Pregnant press. They have already also made plans to get dinner together and meet up with Teen Mom Talk blogger Heather Crouse, who is notorious for starting public Twitter fights with other Teen Moms like Kailyn Lowry, and trashing Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout on Z100 radio show.
Since it has been rumored that after MTV cancelled Teen Mom (the first season with Maci, Farrah, Catelynn, and Amber. The final season will air summertime). It’s been reported that MTV will have a Teen Mom 3 featuring the 16 & Pregnant girls. So let’s learn more:
