'It’s Not About Fame!' Mackenzie Mckee SLAMS MTV's Plans To Reboot '16 & Pregnant'
Mackenzie Mckee isn’t holding back!
The former Teen Mom 3 star opened up about MTV’s plans to reboot the show, 16 & Pregnant. In an exclusive interview with OKMagazine.com the now mother-of-three explained, “When I was on the show, I had never seen the show. The girls are so famous now and they had no clue that would happen. I hope they aren’t thinking if you get pregnant you’re as famous as these girls. We need to push for girls to respect themselves. It’s not about fame.”
She continued, “I really hope girls don’t purposely get pregnant to be on a short time show. I don’t regret sharing my story. I wish to continue to share my story in every way I can.”
Mackenzie admitted in an exclusive interview with The Dirty, “I do not think MTV should continue to find new teen moms and show the world they are casting so some 16 year old could possibly purposely get pregnant for a shot of fame.”
The now mother-of-three is married to Josh Mckee, who is the father of all of her children. However, despite her happy ending with Josh, she did send a message to your girls saying, “If I had a message to send out to young girls the age of sixteen, it would be to respect yourself more. Don’t cause an emotional attachment by having sex with someone at that age. Your too young for a heart break like that. If a man loves you, he will wait for you. Yes, my own husband was a disrespectful little boy who didn’t even know what love was when we were young. It’s rare that the relationship works out so don’t expect him to stay because a baby is involved, I hate looking back knowing I was sexually active at the age 16 and I pray everyday my daughter doesn’t live the way I was.”
