First season 16 & Pregnant subject Whitney Purvis was arrested Thursday for stealing a pregnancy test from a Wal-Mart. Now she’s speaking out to TMZ about why she stole the test, and revealed whether or not she’s pregnant.
First of all, Whitney says she was embarrassed to tell her boyfriend that she suspected she was pregnant, and that was why she didn’t purchase the test. Her boyfriend was the one who had money, and she didn’t want to “freak him out . . . I was just being stupid with my decisions. I wish I would have handled the situation better.”
She took the test into the restroom to use it, but she got scared, and actually threw it away! When she was arrested and taken to jail, she still didn’t know if she was pregnant or not!
She was released from jail after a few hours, and when she got home, she got her period, much to her relief. of course that’s not a 100% guarantee that she’s not pregnant, but Whitney was convinced and didn’t go buy a test. “I was excited because I didn’t want another kid – I already have one.”
