(Newser) – Valerie Fairman, who appeared on MTV reality show 16 and Pregnant in 2010, has died of an apparent drug overdose, her family tells TMZ. She was 23. Fairman was staying with a friend who found her unresponsive in the bathroom of her Pennsylvania home on Wednesday, relatives say. Fairman's years-long struggle with drugs was featured on the show; she's also faced charges including prostitution and was last week charged with resisting arrest and giving false identification to police, reports the Hollywood Gossip. Her 7-year-old daughter, Nevaeh, is now with her grandmother. (A reality TV contestant was just murdered.)
