MTV Teen Mom Farrah and Jersey Shore's Pauly D?

MTV's documentary-style Teen Mom features four teenage girls struggling with the challenges of young motherhood. Teen Mom is a spinoff of 16 and Pregnant, which was developed partly in response to the attention surrounding the pregnancies of famous teens like Jamie Lynn Spears and Bristol Pailn.

MTV, in partnership with the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, aims to show the audience that teen pregnancy is "not glamorous or fun."

Farrah Abraham is the show's most controversial young mother. The high school cheerleader turned single mom is raising baby Sophia alone. Sophia's father is not in the picture at all. Farrah and Sophia live in Council Bluffs, Iowa, with Farrah's mother, Debra Danielson.

Farrah's unplanned pregnancy may have landed her a TV gig, but it's her off-screen life that's making the biggest headlines.

In January, the 18-year-old got into a screaming match with her mother over "child care as well as other problems." According to a police report, the argument turned physical when Danielson allegedly grabbed her daughter by the throat and "hit her along the side of her head and hit her in the mouth."

Shortly thereafter, rumore started flying that Farrah had hooked up with Jersey Shore's sleazy DJ Pauly D, aka Paul Dalvecchio. The 27-year-old Delvecchio denied rumors that he and Farrah had a fling in Houston.

"I have never been to Houston," Delvecchio told RadarOnline, "but I do think [Farrah's] hot."
