Not one to EVER hold her tongue, Chelsea Handler recently brought about a shocking revelation. She had an abortion about 2 years ago when she was merely a 16-year-old high school student. So she can actually relate to being “16 and Pregnant,” which is ironically the title of a very popular MTV reality series that follows pregnant teenagers as they try to balance their lives after discovering that they are expecting their first child at such a young age.
In fact, she can relate to it so much that she says that the whole idea of the show, which she believes in a way glorifies pregnancy, enrages her so much that it makes her “want to kill somebody.”
“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” she told the New York Times in a recent interview. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are the things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”
She continued, “We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment … ’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.”
