16 & Pregnant – Season 3 – Briana’s Episode
Briana’s sister had an abortion around the time that Briana decided to keep her baby, which caused her sister to come off as an insensitive jerk more than a few times in the episode. In one particular scene, Briana wanted beans and her sister wasn’t going to stand for it.
During Bri’s sister’s outbursts, you could see that it wasn’t out of selfishness, that it was generally out of still emotionally dealing with her choice to get an abortion. As we know from MTV, abortion is “No Easy Decision”.
We watch Bri and her baby daddy go through constant lows. He came around 3 times; when he found out she named the baby without him, when she gave birth, and about a week after.
Briana made a terrible decision when she decided not to put him on the birth certificate. She did it because instead of helping take care of Nova at the hospital, he went to shoot hoops with his homies. But now getting child support is going to be ridiculously more complicated than it needed to be.
You could see how hurt she was that he wasn’t around, but when he was around she NEVER made eye contact with him and never really held him accountable for his actions, or lack there of.
At the end of the episode, Briana said the most shocking thing I think any 16 & Pregnant girl has ever said. She said that if she could go back in time, she would have had an abortion instead. It’s heart breaking because you can’t tell if she feels that way because of being a mother, or simply because her baby daddy is making her miserable.
Anyway, on Good Morning America, Briana seemed to have to life much more put together than she did in her episode. Okay maybe not her life, but her emotions. Her life seems to be on a pretty decent track.
Baby daddy still ins’t around for Nova.
Fun fact: Bri was the 3rd girl in a row to breast feed this season!
Random compliment: Briana’s mom needs to write a book about parenting a pregnant teen.
