MTV Sure Knows How To Pick Them

First I have to confess that I sometimes watch The Hills. OK, moving on...

Events this week have demonstrated MTV's uncanny ability to pick complete losers to star in its reality tv shows. Maybe if their reality tv shows were not so trashy and morally bankrupt they would not have these problems.

Earlier this week TMZ reported that the mother of one of MTV's "Teen Mom's" had been charged with domestic assault after she choked and hit her daughter over the weekend.
According to cops, Farrah and Debra started arguing over childcare issues when Debra allegedly threw an MTV shirtat her daughter ... which landed "on or near" Farrah's baby, who started crying.That's when Farrah claims she went off on her mother -- who then grabbed Farrah by the throat. Farrah told cops she pushed her mother's hand away from her throat, causing her mother to strike her on the right side of her head and mouth.
Doesn't it warm your heart? Aren't you glad that MTV is promoting this teen-mom lifestyle to millions of hormonal teenagers? Spare me the 'you're crazy it was grandma not the mom' emails - when teen mom's are minors their parents have to sign on for them to do these shows. I can't think of too many 'normal' parents I know who would let their teenage daugher exploit her pregnancy and her child on national television for a few extra bucks.

Even more disturbing though is today's report that 'G's to Gents' (G is for gangsta) star Markice Kesan Moore is wanted for a disgusting and brutal beating of his infant daughter. TMZ:
Cops in Cobb County are on the hunt for Markice "Kesan" Moore, who is "accused of breaking both of his infant daughter's arms, one leg, 3 ribs, a collarbone and bruising all over her body."Kesan -- who is currently on Cobb County's most wanted list -- was eliminated during the fifth episode of "G's" season one.

It sounds like MTV should consider some programming on domestic abuse.
