Rosie O'Donnell Thinks 'Teen Mom' Is Positive


Rosie O'Donnell


She watched the MTV show with her adopted 13-year-old daughter, thinking 'it sends out a positive message' for teens out there.

Rosie O'Donnell has defended controversial U.S. TV show "Teen Mom", insisting the series sends a "positive message" about parenthood to teens. Scores of concerned parents and critics have blasted the "Teen Mom" franchise, which follows high school students who become mums at a young age.

But O'Donnell believes the show is beneficial as it encourages youngsters to wait before having sex - and admits she watches the programme with her adopted teenage daughter, Chelsea. She tells UsMagazine.com, "I have to say it's interesting. My daughter is 13. I watch it with her. I think the fantasy for adopted children is to have a baby of their own, and then keeping it, which their mother did not do."

"The rate of teenage pregnancy is up, so when my daughter saw that (Teen Mom 2) was on the air, I said 'Let's watch it.' At the end of almost every episode the mothers say they wish they used protection or waited, 'My whole life is over,' or 'I can't live the life of a teenager.' I think it sends out a positive message."
