The 19-year-old mother of 2-year-old twins (Ali and Aleeah) was photographed above, with her fiance Jeremy Calvert, exactly a week ago trying to go incognito while smoking in West Virginia.
According to the photo agency which snapped Leah on January 12, she had just gotten into a car accident, crashing her brand new Chevy Suburban and was looking stressed.
Reports came out last week that Leah was pregnant again with twins, but she quickly took to Twitter to deny the report. She, however, continues to remain mum on her pregnancy and engagement.
Jeremy confirmed the pregnancy news earlier this month, also revealing he proposed to her over the holidays after just five months of dating. It’s safe to assume the pregnancy came before the engagement.
Leah has been receiving a ton of backlash from fans of the MTV hit show, rightfully so, who feel having baby no. 3 at the tender age of 19 isn’t the smartest choice.
As we reported back then, there are major risks associated with smoking while pregnant. Below are some according to WedMD:
Lower the amount of oxygen available to you and your growing baby.
Increase the chances of miscarriage and stillbirth.
Increase the risk that your baby is born prematurely and/or born with low birth weight.
Increase your baby’s risk of developing respiratory (lung) problems
In addition to the above risks, smoking while pregnant can also result in lifelong effects on a baby’s brain. Children of pregnant smokers are especially likely to have learning disorders, behavioral problems and relatively low IQs.
Oh, Teen Moms. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Not much. So without further ado, here’s the lowdown…
We begin with Chelsea furnishing and decorating her new apartment and proactively looking for a job to help her dad with the finances. That’s a start! Adam has been MIA, but Chelsea seems excited to be gainfully employed and potentially meeting new friends at a new gig. Her first interview seems to go well… she wants to go to cosmetology school, she’s working on her GED and her schedule is wide open. Who wouldn’t want to hire her?
Kailyn is still reeling from her recent fight over child support with Jo. She reveals to friends that she hadn’t previously asked for child support before because her mom was helping her. However, Jo lives at home and has a full time job, so he should be contributing equally. Kailyn getting her own place doesn’t negate her financial responsibility to Isaac, but Jo believes that she’s wasting money on their son that he doesn’t need to spend. Um, not the case.

Jenelle, 20, is pictured above with shackles on her feet in a black and white striped jail uniform as she stood to face charges in Brunswick County, North Carolina on Tuesday morning.
Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells Reality Tea that the MTV reality star was charged with Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation on Monday night. After spending Monday night in jail, she had her first appearance in court yesterday morning. Her bond was set at $1,000.
Dustin also reveals that Jenelle’s next court date has been set for February 6, 2012. She is now facing 75 days of active jail time.
Calling the charges against Jenelle “absurd and ridiculous,” Dustin states to Reality Tea: “Jenelle has been doing outstanding on probation the last 7 months. She has passed every drug and alcohol test that has been given to her on a weekly basis. She has completed all of the necessary classes required of her and is up to date on all of her payments.”
The two arrests in the past week stem from Jenelle’s issues with her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Jenelle is accused of violating a no order contact placed against her by communicating threats and harassing phone calls.
As for Jenelle, it appears she is attempting to take some time away from social media in light of recent events. She tweeted yesterday, “BYE BYE TWITTER. DEACTIVATING FOR A WHILE. :[." Though as of this morning, she has yet to shut down her Twitter page.
To sum this up, Jenelle is currently facing five different charges. These include two no contact orders, communicating threats and harassing phone calls as well as the latest one of domestic violence protection order violation. As we reported yesterday, Jenelle is at risk for more jail time if she is deemed to have violated her probation from beating up a former friend in a taped fight last year.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH JENELLE? DO YOU THINK SHE’LL DO JAIL TIME?
A rep for the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office confirms to TMZ that Jenelle, 20, was arrested yesterday in North Carolina for violating a domestic violence protective order.
In fact, Jenelle still remains in jail today as she had to be kept overnight due to this being a repeat offense. Her arrest last week was for allegedly making harassing phone calls and threatening ex-roommate Hannah Inman.
The Starcasm blog was able to speak to Jenelle’s manager Leo Daniels who confirms it was Hannah who had Jenelle arrested for allegedly breaking a protective order by attempting to harass her via phone, Internet or other means.
Fun fact — Jenelle’s still on probation for beating up a former friend in a taped fight last year. As a result, this latest arrest could have serious consequences. Perhaps Jenelle needs to have a word with Amber Portwood who remains in jail today.
In other Teen Mom news, Leah Messer has now come out denying the report that stated she is pregnant with twins. If you recall, Leah’ fiancé Jeremy Calvert revealed earlier this month that he and Leah are engaged and expecting. A week later, a report came out stating it was twins again.
Well, Leah recently tweeted: “Thank you @intouchweekly for telling me I am having twins again, love bad reporting and fake stories, it does sound like a Soap Show! Ha!”
So there you have it folks, the 19-year-old mom of twins is pregnant once again BUT it’s not with twins. Whew!
And finally, Leah’s ex-husband/baby daddy Corey Simms is single once again. Corey broke up with his girlfriend Summer Tavarez over the weekend as the two changed their relationship statuses on Facebook from being a relationship to single. The two had been dating for the past two months. A photo of Corey and Summer in happier times is below.

Good lord — will these two give it a rest already? Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer have been living the tabloid life lately because every other day it seems they are in some sort of drama! And speaking of two, Leah is apparently pregnant with twins – for the second time!
Just last week Leah announced her new engagement to Jeremy Calvert and her new pregnancy. Now it seems she is seeing doubles again. “She just found out last week,” a source informs In Touch Weekly. “Leah can’t believe how lucky she is to have two more babies. [She] is absolutely thrilled.”
Unfortunately for Leah two more babies means twice the expenses and more than one recent report is alleging the Teen Mom 2 star is broke! “She’s already blown this season’s paycheck,” reveals the source. “She desperately needs cash.”
Leah went on a spending spree last year; buying a house and a new SUV, and sources are claiming she is getting married as an opportunity to sell wedding pictures for extra cash!
And Leah, who is also in nursing school, apparently has big dreams of becoming the Kate Gosselin of the south and turning her mom of multiples saga into a lucrative TV empire. “She thinks the babies will help her to get her own spin-off show,” the source adds. “And that means a much bigger salary.”
“She wants her own series and her own brand, just like Kate,” What, Teen Mom of Multiples? Or how about: Teen Mom Extreme: More Babies Than She Can Handle! She should learn a lesson from Kate about getting too big for your britches and having it all go up in smoke!
Even though Leah is exuberant about her new babies there’s a lot riding on her shoulders. “Her friends are worried she won’t be able to handle it all,” a friend confesses. “She’ll have four babies — one of with special needs — and she’s a child herself.”
Furthermore, there are concerns about the long-term potential of her relationship with Jeremy. The two have only been together for a few months and are now rushing into marriage and children. “Leah’s worst nightmare is being a single mom, broke and alone,” the source adds.
Leah is claiming this story is not true. Taking to her Twitter, she dispelled the myth: “Thank you @intouchweekly for telling me I am having twins again, love bad reporting and fake stories, it does sound like a Soap Show! Ha!”
In other teen mama drama, Jenelle steps up to the plate. Two weeks ago some crazy photos of Jenelle surfaced. They found their way to the net at the hands of James Duffy — Jenelle’s former boss and the love interest of her former roommate Hannah Inman. Jenelle was arrested last week for “harassing phone calls” and “communicating threats” after Hannah pressed charges against her.
Jenelle’s lawyer calls those actions “retaliatory”; claiming Hannah was reacting to Jenelle pressing charges against James for cyberstalking after he released the incriminating photos and information (including explicit text messages he claims to have received from Jenelle). Classy. Did we mention James, a man in his forties, was partying with people not even legally old enough to drink.
Jenelle’s overworked attorney Dustin Sullivan explained to Starcasm, “What I can tell you is that Jenelle felt threatened to a point in which she felt she had to take out charges as a last resort. She requested he stop his behavior and when he continued to do so, Jenelle felt she had to for her safety.” Duffy is due in court February 8th after he was officially charged with the crime by the Brunswick County Police.
Oh yeah, and Hannah is claiming she isn’t dating Duffy, but merely working with him to advance her budding music career. Hannah said filing charges against her former friend had nothing to do with a desire to become famous, she became afraid after Jenelle threatened her life.
Does this leave a bad taste in anyone else’s mouth?

DO YOU BELIEVE LEAH IS PREGNANT WITH TWINS AND BROKE?! WOULD YOU WATCH IF SHE GOT HER OWN SPIN OFF? THOUGHTS ON JENELLE’S LATEST LEGAL DRAMA? WHERE DOES SHE FIND THESE FRIENDS OF HERS?
Because everyone likes a little something extra after the holidays, last night MTV gifted us with not one, but two new episodes of Teen Mom 2! I know you’re just as pumped about it as I am, and if you think I’m being sarcastic… well, you’re right. Two hours of mayhem, stupid choices, and those poor toddlers.
EPISODE ONE: MY SHAMELESS PLUG FOR NORTH CAROLINA COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEYS
Leah and Corey are gearing up for more doctor’s visits for Ali. In an effort to cheer up the twins, Leah brings home a kitten. Just one more thing for the couple to take care of in the midst of all their issues. Corey isn’t thrilled about the cat (can you blame him?) but he is happy he’ll be able to accompany Leah to Ali’s geneticist appointment.
Chelsea is recovering from her surgery and she’s bummed to learn that the owners of the house her dad’s she’s renting are trying to sell it. She reveals to her dad that she’s going to have to find new digs. She promises her dad that when she finds a new place, Adam won’t be living with her… he’ll just stay there the majority of the time. Chelsea is ready for a change. There are too many bad memories in her old house — fighting with Adam and growing distant from her former roommate Megan (foreshadowing? And thanks to all the readers who made me realize it will be Megan who shows up preggers in this episode, when I mistakenly thought it was Chelsea’s sister). Chelsea also wants to go back to blonde. Whoa, the changes!

I’m starting to think where the stars of Teen Mom are concerned no news is good news, because nearly every time there is news it’s something a little sad.
In the latest, Jenelle Evans, the drama wrought star of Teen Mom 2 was arrested in North Carolina on Tuesday for allegedly making harassing phone calls and threatening her former roommate, Hannah Inman. Hannah is the same ex-roommate who is now dating her ex-boss James Duffy who recently leaked wild photos of Jenelle drinking and making out with her new roommate.
According to TMZ, Jenelle, 20, was booked into the Brunswick County Jail and was released on $1,000 bond, which luckily her MTV salary affords her the luxury of paying. This is not the first arrest for Jenelle who is currently on probation for a fight with other girl over ex-boyfriend and fellow jail bird Kieffer Delp.
Violating her probation could put Jenelle in jeopardy legally and she could be looking at jail time for her latest inability to control her temper. Jenelle is obviously not taking this seriously as shortly after her release she tweeted: “I’m free as a biiirrrrddddd :D” although she claims she was crying the entire time.
“She was arrested yesterday afternoon for communicating threats and harassing phone calls to Hannah,” Jenelle’s attorney Dustin Sullivan tells HollywoodLife. “Hannah was the roommate of Mr.James Duffy [Jenelle's former boss]. Jenelle pressed charges on Duffy on Saturday, Jan. 7, for cyberstalking and communicating threats.”
Jenelle also took to her Facebook page to post the following message:
“Yes I was arrested again. It’s okay, Hannah’s just calling her own bluffs. How can I harass u with phone calls when u clearly don’t own a cell phone? I’ve dropped this argument weeks ago. Haven’t been paying attention to u but u have the balls to tell yr little ‘fans’.. ‘imma fu*cking kill that bitch’ ?! How’s threatening who here ?! Lmao she’s mad cuz I took out charges first on Duffy for cyber stalking. She claims that she move out becuz I said I would ‘eventually kill her’ when clearly her old phone has texts that states ‘look I’m moving out to yr house Duffy so we can move to new jersey so I can get famous for my singing’. Yes u set me up and yes u will go down. CAN’T WAIT FOR COURT!”
Maybe she could be cell mates with Amber Portwood currently hanging out behind bars. Amber recently sent a letter to her brother from jail in which she admitted she is “really scared” about the prospect of ending up in prison. TMZ received a copy of that letter and you can view it in its entirety below save for the blacked out parts.
“I don’t think I’ll ever take this sh-t for granted,” Amber wrote. “I’m really scared I’m going to prison. I don’t know what I’ll do.”
Being in jail has obviously given Amber a lot of time to examine her priorities: “All I think about is Leah and how she needs a role model. If I can get out, I can really show her what a good mother is.” Hopefully this will be second (or fifth) chance Amber needs to really make a difference in her life — if not for herself than definitely for her daughter.
“I don’t want people thinking I’m this crazy bitch,” Amber exclaimed. “I am a good person and I pray that I can change my life!” Amber also insists that despite what the judge thinks she is not a danger to society, claiming, “I wouldn’t hurt anyone!”
Hopefully Amber’s situation can also be a wake-up call to Jenelle. Just because you are on a reality show does not mean you are above the law, ladies!

Fans of MTV’s eponymous Teen Mom 2 know Jenelle Evans as the trouble girl gone good as she is shown trying to change her life, beat her addictions as well as regain custody of her two-year-old son, Jace.
Fans have supported Jenelle through her struggles to change her life, but OK! Magazine is reporting that Jenelle’s reformed image is merely an act for the cameras! Despite Jenelle recently claiming she has learned to “control her anger” and is working on being “civil instead of yelling,” behind the scenes Jenelle is apparently the same old volatile girl from last season!
“Jenelle has always had a temper, but now that she’s a ‘celebrity’ it’s gotten much worse,” an insider reports. “She has a sense of entitlement now, and if anyone tells her what to do – watch out!”
“Jenelle and her mom [Barabara Evans] never stop fighting — never,” says an insider who lives in the same town as the battling duo.”What’s bad is that Jace sees this all go down, all the time, every day.” At the center of Jenelle and Barbara’s arguments is Jace, whom Barbara still doesn’t trust alone with Jenelle.
Additionally, Jenelle isn’t limiting her aggression to family as she is also getting into fights with friends. Jenelle recently announced on Facebook that she was no longer getting along with roommate Hannah Inman. The two took their feud public with obscenity filled Twitter tirades and accusations. Classy, much? Hannah is Jenelle’s second roommate this winter, as the first one was unceremoniously kicked out for who knows what.
“Me and Hannah are officially not friends anymore,” the mature mother wrote on Facebook. “She simply used me for money, fame, ciggs, food, a cellphone, etc,” Jenelle published. I hope some of that money is also going towards the care of her son. #doubtit!
Further adding to the theory that Jenelle’s life is still a mess away from the cameras, Star Magazine has recently revealed that Jenelle has relapsed and wants to get back together with loser ex-boyfriend Kieffer Delp!
Friends recently revealed that during an MTV promotional tour the under-aged Jenelle was seen drinking alcohol. “One night Jenelle and some of the other girls went out to get alcohol to bring back to the hotel,” a source claims. “Jenelle was drinking beer.” Jenelle was also photographed supposedly smoking pot last year.
Jenelle’s problems are exacerbated by surrounding herself with bad influences. “Jenelle said she was going apartment hunting with this new friend of hers who smokes weed and drinks,” a friend disclosed. As for whether or not she has returned to her old pot head ways, friends aren’t sure. “I dont think Jenelle is smoking weed, but who really knows?”
Just recently some wild photos of Jenelle partying surfaced, which Jenelle claims are are from a couple months ago and she has since changed her behavior: “Yes i learned my lesson all those pics and videos r from two months ago. I never went back,” she tweeted.
And even worse for the beleaguered teen mama, who clearly has trouble making good decisions — she has big plans to get back together with Kieffer! “Jenelle told me that when Kieffer gets out of jail she’s more than likely going to get back with him,” the friend confesses. “She says that he doesn’t have anybody else.”
Perhaps she has moved on as photos from her Facebook page show her kissing a new guy and she has been posting about a person named Gary. We’ll see…
My two cents: Thank you MTV for exposing the sad and troubled worlds of these girls whose lives have clearly been deteriorated by the access to fame, attention and lots of money. If any of the above allegations are true, Jenelle needs to step away from the spotlight and get into therapy to really work through her issues so she can be the best mother possible to her little boy.
