Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell Wants To Counsel Pregnant Teens

Filed under: Pregnancy TalkReality TVTeen Mom

Teen Mom has given a lot to star Catelynn Lowell.

In addition to steady employment, the reality show has also given Catelynn access to a mentor to help her through giving up her baby for adoption.

Now Catelynn wants to pay it forward by becoming a counselor to others. She says:

"I have a calling for pregnant teenagers that are placing for adoption. [Giving up Carly] and doing the show helped me realize what I want to do for the rest of my life."

Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) to hear Catelynn and fiance Tyler Baltierra talk about their future plans.

We think this is a great move for Catelynn.

A lot of people in her position wouldn't be so magnanimous. You go, gurl!

Horrible! Father Intentionally Blows Himself Up With Two Young Sons In House Explosion

Filed under: Sad Sad

What a traumatic story. This really hit us hard.

Just days after a judge ruled against Josh Powell of Graham, Washington, in a child custody case against the parents of his missing wife Suan Powell, he and his two sons were killed when he intentionally blew up his house with all three of them inside.

A social worker brought his two young sons to his home for a supervised visit when Powell grabbed the children and dragged them inside and blocked the social worker from entering the home.

As she was walking back to her car, she called her supervisors to report the incident and also to tell them she could smell gas coming from the home.

Moments later, the house exploded.

Powell sent an email to his lawyer just a few minutes before the explosion that said:

"I'm sorry, goodbye."

Powell had been under investigation in the 2009 disappearance of his 28-year-old wife Susan. Powell was also ordered to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation after it was discovered that his father Steven had been arrested on child porn and voyeurism charges last fall.

This is just such a bizarre and unbelievably tragic story. We can't even imagine what this family is going through right now.

Social Worker Visits The Haus Of Brit Brit, Finds No Signs Of Abuse!

fp_5141863_spears_britneyjb.jpg

Well thank goodness that whole bullshiz mess was resolved! We didn't think it was true, anyway!

After her former bodyguard made allegations that our beloved Brit Brit was hitting her children, a social worker made a visit to the pop star's home and concluded that there were no signs of abuse, and little Tater Tot and Small Fry are just fine!

A source claims:

"Social workers visited Britney's house recently about the alleged abuse allegations. Under California law, anytime anyone makes a report to child protective services, a welfare check is required to be made under law to further investigate. It doesn't matter who has made the claim, or how outlandish it may seem. During the visit by officials, there was absolutely no signs of abuse. The boys are happy well adjusted toddlers that love their mama and Britney is fiercely protective of them. The investigation is 95 percent complete and no further action will be required. All that is essentially going to be done at this point is for the paperwork to be finished and then the case will be closed. Britney and Kevin parent the children together, and they have developed a very healthy relationship that truly enables the boys to thrive. They are united in parenting the boys and trying to raise them in as normal environment as possible. If Kevin thought for one moment that the boys were in harms way while they are with Britney, he would immediately go to family law court to have the situation addressed and dealt with. Britney is rarely alone with her sons, usually her boyfriend, Jason Trawick, is with her during their visits, or her dad is there."

Exactly what we thought!

The insider also describes the bodyguard who made the allegations, Fernando Flowers, as "an opportunist seeking his 15 minutes of fame. Flores is a former disgruntled employee that is trying to take advantage of Britney."

It's disgusting enough that someone would want to exploit their former employer, but to use children as a means to do so? Absolutely deplorable!

Thoughts??
