Out of all the original participants on MTV’s reality show, 16 & Pregnant, only one — now 19-year-old Ebony Jackson — was not invited to participate in the successful spinoff, Teen Mom.
In a new interview with Life & Style, Ebony reveals that she is happy she was not invited to be on the new show. “The Teen Mom couples are just so unhappy,” she says. “And now they have to deal with everyone knowing them and getting in their faces.”
Ebony married her boyfriend and father to her daughter, Josh in June 2009. Their daughter Jocelyn is now 18 months. She says they’re “so happy” and are even talking about adding another child to their family! The happiness Ebony and Josh share is the reason she feels she was not asked to be on Teen Mom. I think the reason I wasn’t chosen is that I was happy.” she said, even revealing that the producers attempted to get her to fight with Josh more often. She adds, “All the other girls had drama going on in their lives, and I just didn’t.”
