Are there ANY castmembers from these shows who don't end up in some sort of legal or relationship nightmare?!
Jennifer Del Rio, from the third cycle of 16 and Pregnant, has apparently fled from Florida to Illinois to file legal documents against her baby daddy, Joshua Smith, for sole custody of their twin boys, because the teen father is apparently a danger to their safety!
According to the 18-year-old

We were afraid something like this was going to happen.
Josh Smith, the teen dad accused of domestic violence against his baby momma and fellow 16 and Pregnant star, Jennifer Del Rio, is saying that Jennifer got pregnant on purpose so that she could be on the MTV reality show.
He's requested a restraining order against her, claiming that she's a "compulsive liar" and concocted a scheme to get herself pregnant. According to Josh, Jennifer told him that he didn't need to wear a condom because she was already knocked up.
"She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was 'our baby' when in actually [sic] it was her friend's sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on 16 and Pregnant."
Wow. We have…no words. Whether or not he's telling the truth, this couple definitely needs help. And a reality show isn't the remedy to their problems.
We just hope their baby can somehow grow up in a stable environment.

The producers of this show really cast the classiest teen moms ever, don't they??
One of the newest 16 and Pregnant teen moms has been accused of punching her baby daddy in the face during an argument.
This is the same couple who had another altercation late last year when Josh Smith was arrested for domestic violence against his girlfriend Jennifer Del Rio. Then again, earlier this month, he allegedly threatened to have her raped.
This time around, Josh claims Jennifer attacked him when he tried to break things off with her, claiming she became "irate" and "punched him in the face and pulled on his shirt."
Jennifer wasn't arrested, but a police report was taken.
We know they're young, but this is inexcusable. They must force themselves to act like civil adults at least for the sake of their children.
Violence is never, NEVER the answer.
