Comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler shocked her fans by revealing she had an abortion at the age of 16 and takes a swipe at MTV’s “16 & Pregnant” for glorifying teen pregnancy.
In Chelsea Handler‘s revealing interview with the New York Times, she talks about her views on teen parents and claims the reality show “16 & Pregnant” is a bad influence on young people.
Chelsea said, “People are too P.C. (politically correct). We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. The Real Housewives of Atlanta and some of these other shows are more racist. Or 16 and Pregnant. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
Handler then came clean about terminating an unwanted pregnancy when she was a teenager. She said, “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”
