Teen Mom 3’s Katie Yeager explains why she’s doing the show, flies above the haters
          

Teen Mom 3 Katie Yeager

A few weeks ago MTV finally confirmed the cast of Teen Mom 3, which includes all-American Mackenzie Douthit from Oklahoma, Brianna DeJesus and her charismatic family from Florida, outside-voiced Alex Sekella from Pennsylvania, and the nerdy, wordy and mighty perty Katie Yeager of Wyoming. Since being officially announced, the girls are now able to speak openly about being on the show, and that’s exactly what Katie did earlier today when she took to Facebook to address a comment by a “fan” who suggested Katie’s daughter Molli would watch the show and perceive it as a documentary on how she ruined her mother’s life.

I have never once said my daughter has ruined my life or that my life is terrible. There is a big difference between complaining and struggling. I think the show is honest and doesn’t sugar coat situations. Being a part of it has given me an opportunity to be able to show my daughter that her dad and I have struggled and made sacrifices for her simply because we have unconditional love for her. She may have not been planned but she isn’t a mistake. God had a plan for her and god never makes mistakes and I will never say that she has ruined my life and it is extremely cruel for you to say that she has. She has given my life purpose! She has given me something to fight for! And I’ll be damn sure she knows that. And her being able to see that documented will more than likely prevent her from making the same choices I have. So I am proud of myself for growing such a thick skin and being brave enough to share my life with such a judgmental and rude world.

Now that is how you write a heartfelt and eloquent response. Don’t worry Katie, when Molli sees things like this she will be sneaking out to the tattoo parlor for a big “MY MOM KICKS ASS! And so will I if you say otherwise!” tattoo — which will of course infuriate you. (Ahhhhh… parenting.)

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about Katie Yeager that makes me want to share songs. Her words above immediately brought a couple to mind. The first is an old, old, old (from back when he had short hair) Willie Nelson cover of Harry Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin'”

Next up is perhaps the greatest hopeful frustration anthem ever written by the greatest frustrated but hopeful performer of all time, Bruce Springsteen. It’s called “Badlands,” which seems appropriate since it’s inspired by an area in North Dakota, which might as well be Wyoming. #wyoproblems

NOTE – FIST PUMPING REQUIRED

For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside
That it ain’t no sin to be glad you’re alive.
I wanna find one face that ain’t looking through me
I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these
Badlands, you gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you’ve gotta pay
We’ll keep pushin’ till it’s understood
And these badlands start treating us good

Sorry if I got a little off track there. MTV still hasn’t announced when Teen Mom 3 will premiere, but until then you can keep up with Katie on Twitter!

      I actually liked Katie more than any other person on the last season of 16 and pregnant.

      • awoman

        You know, she stuck it out with school, started community college, worked until she had the baby, breastfed, moved out, she has dreams and works toward them with her actions.. Joey was a hard worker. She took being a stay at home mom seriously.
        It was just good to see.

    • Bri

      That statement she made…..—–><3

    • S83

      I hate her face, and her self portraits are NOT helping.

      • Bri

        Geesh, so damn rude. Why?

        • S83

          Because….. of FIVEHEAD!

    • Lili

      Geez…that so called “fan” was so rude! I hope Katie deleted her! She’s just on her page to be nosey! Katie you go girl in what you told her!

      • krystal

        Im the one she wrote that to and what I had to say wasnt even about her she made it about herself. and I was writing a comment to one of my friends not to katie. If you havent seen what I wrote then you cant decide for your self if it was rude or not. she cant delete me if i was never her friend to begin with

    • Ashton

      The faces that girl makes…

    • Ashley

      The show may be honest and without sugarcoating until the MTV paychecks roll in, that is…

    • d0rsia

      Whatever. She ruined her life and got lucky.

      • Mickey

        Excuse you. Having a child young does NOT ruin your life. And how exactly did she “get lucky”. By working her a$$ off? By having a bf that worked HIS a$$ off? Please, I’d LOVE to hear your explanation on how she “got lucky”. You are, quite literally, ignorance at it’s best.

    • chica

      She is actually one of the few girls from 16 and pregnant and the soon to be teen mom shows that I respect. She is ambitious, caring, and has a good head on her shoulders. I think she is going to make an EXCELLENT cast member for teen mom 3!

      More like “MTV is practically paying me for getting pregnant.”

      I hate those teen pregnancy shows. I understand that being a mom as a teenager would be hard cause I wouldn’t have been able to do it but putting it on tv only makes it worse. All the fights that should be private are just put out there for everyone to see and if they were talking about how terrible their lives are now that they have a baby its out there for their kid to see when they get older. They probably wont see it as my parents made a mistake and ruined their plans they’ll see it as I ruined my parents lives.
      This is what I said that she commented on. It was posted on my friends comment about teen mom in what way is this about her. Katie if your going to post something up you make sure you post the whole thing not just the last sentence.
      I have nothing against the moms on the show just don’t like the show. I understand that I could have worded the mistake thing different but I dont see how this is even calling your baby a mistake.

      This is what I said and it was not posted on anything of hers it was posted on my friends facebook page on a post she put up about the show teen mom. And what I ment by my parents made a mistake and ruined their plans is they accidentally got pregnant and cant do the things they wanted I wasnt calling anyones baby a mistake.

    • Auntie

      “Haters” lol really?

    • Amy

      Yes there is a difference between complaining and struggling they dont even mean the same thing. When you go on tv and start talking about your struggles is usually looked at as complaining. Also she may not have said anything that her daughter could take the wrong way but some of the other girls did. One thing that bothered me about Katies episode is that she was talking about how she didn’t feel like a person because all she did was feed change diapers and bath the baby. To me that sounds like a real person. Its not just teen moms that have it that way either its all moms. After seeing what was actually said that katie was responding to I don’t know what made her think it was about her.

      “So I am proud of myself for growing such a thick skin and being brave enough to share my life with such a judgmental and rude world.”

      She may have had to grow a thick skin to share her story with the world but to me it looks like the person that she responded to had to grow a thick skin just to share an oppinion with a friend just to have it posted up here and judged by people that didn’t even read what they had said. At least katie chose to be judged by everyone who watches the show the one that wrote the comment only chose to be judged by their own friends that actually read what they had to say.

      Ughh… every time she comes on all i hear is yelling, this girl needs to lower her voice and actually respect others, sure he did/does drugs, but at least he tried. most drug users wont admit to their issues. Stop b.i.t.c.h.i.n.g..
