Well, there’s another reality star using the “bad edit” excuse. This time its one of the parents from “16 And Pregnant.” Kathleen Green, the grandmother-in-law of this week’s teen mom Christinna Robinson, is unhappy with the way she was portrayed on the show. Which makes sense. She was horrible! But does she have a case?
Kathleen, the grandmother of Christinna’s former husband Isiah, was relentlessly aggressive with Christinna on the show this week. She came off like a horrible person, blaming Christinna for the entire pregnancy and accusing her of getting pregnant by another man. But she now claims that MTV edited the video to make her look bad, and left out key information.
According to TMZ:
Kathleen says she’s particularly upset with a scene involving a DNA test she bought for Christinna — claiming she came off as a cold-hearted bitch because MTV left out one key detail — “They didn’t show that [Christinna] had told us she had had sex with some other guy.”
That sounds fair, except why would MTV delete that key detail? It’s not like they refrain from making their teen moms look bad in the series. But of course the narrative is going to follow Christinna’s story and not hers.
Kathleen does realize the show is called “16 and Pregnant,” not “The Nice, Upset Grandmother In Law Of A Tramp,” right?
There’s also the fact that Christinna has consistently said that Isiah was her first sex partner. And on her former Formspring page, she has said that she doesn’t plan to have sex again until she’s married.
Maybe Christinna’s lying. But during her screen time on MTV’s show, she was also adamant that she never slept with someone else.
It sounds like Kathleen Green is suffering from the problem that afflicts many reality villains. She didn’t realize how terrible her words sounded when she spoke them. But there’s no taking it back now.
