THE TIMES REALITY TV WENT TOO FARDate: 2018-12-11
Sometimes reality is a little bit too much, especially on TV, so let's take a look at the top moment's reality TV definitely went too far.
Out of all the ridiculous things like drinking donkey semen, dressing up a 6-year-old in Julia Roberts prostitute clothing from Pretty Woman for a beauty pageant, biting off a lizards head in Naked and Afraid and racial connotations, the one that takes the cake is when the show 16 and pregnant aired an episode of a teenage mom forced to give up her unborn baby for adoption.
Fans watched as Lori Wickelhaus struggled to decide whether or not to her baby boy up for adoption during the second season of 16 and Pregnant, though the pressure from her parents was immense. The 16-year-old ended up placing her son, Aidan, with a local couple for an open adoption. After her episode aired, Lori stayed out of the limelight, even declining the opportunity to participate in the 16 and Pregnant: Adoption Special the following year.
