Kailyn Lowry and a Selfie

In the television industry, everything can change at the drop of a hat, depending on the demands of the market.

Shows and even networks have been known to rebrand overnight in order to hold on to an audience or chase after a new one.

That’s how TLC and Discovery went from the type of content you’d watch in school when your teacher was hungover to the type of content you watch at home so you console yourself with the knowledge that other people have made worse life choices than you.

It’s also why the Teen Mom franchise is still plugging along, despite the fact that its original stars are now in their late twenties and early thirties.

Yes, they’re still moms, but the stars of the show haven’t been teens for quite some time.

This is a fact that’s frequently pointed out to the cast members on Twitter, particularly after they engage in some high school-cailber drama.

And as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, it seems that Kailyn Lowry is sick of being reminded about the fact that the title of her show has been inaccurate for about eight years now.

“There was a comment yesterday on somebody’s Instagram and it was like, ‘These girls are almost 30, get them off TV’ or whatever,” Kail said during a recent episode of her Coffee Convos podcast.

“I actually commented back and said, ‘Teen motherhood doesn’t just stop when you turn 20. There’s an aftermath. There’s so much more of a story that goes on after you become a teen parent…”

“It doesn’t define you, but there’s so much more that goes into it after that fact,” Kail said.

“Things are harder later on. The statistics are against you still. Even beyond those teen years, there’s so much more.…there’s so much more to be said; there’s still so much story to be told.”

As you can tell, it’s an issue that Lowry feels quite strongly about. 

And not only because she’s managed to parlay the success of her reality show into a career as a one-woman business empire.

“The aftermath and the decisions we make now, they all stem from having been teen parents,” Kail continued.

“A lot of things we go through now—- no, it doesn’t define us—- but they’re decisions that we still have to make because we were teen parents. I think in that way the title of the show still makes sense. I hope that other people see it.”

While we certainly don’t blame Kail for sticking with her cushy gig, the argument that the show still serves as a cautionary tale about the perils of teen motherhood is obviously bogus.

Most real-world teen moms don’t stumble into cushy six-figure gigs that don’t even require them to leave the house.

But Kail says getting pregnant in high school has forced her to make some hard decisions, and she admits there are certain things …read more
