Believe it or not, Teen Mom 2 won Wednesday night, with 1.553 million viewers. Also this week, 1.559 million watched the ALDC prepare for Nationals on Dance Moms and 1.018 million tolerated Josh Altman’s ego on Million Dollar Listing LA. In summary, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, and Teen Mom 2 ruled the cable ratings this week, and I don’t know whether to weep for our society or thank all of you for the job security.
Teen Mom 2 oompa loompa Leah Calvert is a mess. And I’m not talking about her hair and makeup this time. Financially… she’s a nightmare! And as we saw on Teen Mom 2 this week, Leah wants us to believe her money problems are Corey‘s fault. That didn’t go over well, so Leah took to Twitter to defend herself against the backlash from fans. It’s rich, err, no shade intended.
Perpetual victim Leah rewrites history like it’s her job, especially where Corey Simms is concerned, and I don’t trust a word that comes out of her mouth. Ever. If she had not wasted so much money on hair dye, a luxury washer and dryer, convenience foods, designer purses, and makeup, she’d have more money to go towards medical bills and household expenses.
Leah’slatest drama revolves around a new horse. Last year, Leah and Jeremy Calvert sold their home because it was not handicap accessible, which is understandable, and moved into an apartment until they found the perfect home. Leah set her sights on a ranch with horses for Ali‘s therapy – and I wouldn’t be shocked if she expects Corey‘s insurance to pay for it. #sarcasm
What’s Maci Bookout doing? Your guess is as good as mine. I honestly don’t pay any attention to the spoiled party girl. I’m sure the IRS is, though, now that she’s got a big pay day coming.
Amber also has a new book, Never Too Late, to promote. In a recent interview, she talked about sharing her story, inviting cameras back into her life, opening her own rehab centers, reconnecting with Leah, and more.
When former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham tweeted that it was “time to be educated” and she hashtag’ed homeschooling, I crossed my fingers and toes and hoped her daughter, Sophia, was not part of the equation.
Surely Farrah is not homeschooling Sophia, I thought. Maybe Farrah is taking an online class, I thought. Well, I thought wrong. In a recent interview, Farrah confirmed that she is, in fact, homeschooling Sophia. Le sigh.
In response to Farrah‘s rant, Teen Mom 2 train wreckJenelle tweeted, “Have u ever thought to yrself that maybe JUST MAYBE MTV doesn’t want porn stars on their TV that used to be on Teen Mom? They want to promote PREVENTING pregnancy not PROMOTING sexual intercourse. Duh.”
Right away Farrahdenied being fired, however, today she said that she feels MTV made a mistake when they fired her. It’s like Farrah lives in one of those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books… Turn to page 32 if your delusional self believes you weren’t fired. Turn to page 54 if you admit you were fired.
The Teen Mom stars – minus Farrah Abraham – and the Teen Mom 2 stars filmed an “Ask the Moms” special, where the “biggest Teen Mom fans” were given a chance to ask the MTV stars questions. This could be really bad or really good. If nothing else, let’s hope the fans questions were better than Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s predictable, misogynistic questions.
