With the exception of Jenelle Evans, the cast of Teen Mom 2 has been relatively quiet lately. That is, until now. I must say, with all the drama that is usually surrounding Leah Messer, her new husband Jeremy Calvert , and her ex-husband Corey Simms, I am surprised we haven’t heard more about her in the tabloids.
Here’s a quick recap for those of you whose memory may be hazy: high school girl has one-night stand with guy who needs subtitles, subtitles guy really likes girl, girl learns she pregnant (with twins, no less!) so she can no longer cheer and attempts to date subtitles guy. Cheating rumors abound with girl’s ex, couple breaks up, twins are born (one with special needs), co-parenting occurs, reconciliation occurs, a nasty trailer occurs, a televised wedding occurs, newlyweds struggle to cope with toddlers, especially since one is developmentally delayed, cheating rumors abound again, subtitles guy buys new truck instead of moving family out of nasty trailer, couple divorces, girl meets new guy, marries new guy a few months later. Are we all up to speed now?
The relationship drama never ceases with the ladies of Teen Mom (seasons 1 AND 2) as y’all well know. This week alone it was reported that a few of MTV’s chosen teen mothers want to get pregnant again. However, if they keep breaking up with their boyfriends, that thankfully won’t happen.
The main young mom to which I’m referring? Maci Bookout who appears in the first installment of the franchise. She is apparently back on the market as Hollywoodlife.com is reporting she has broken up with boyfriend of nearly two years Kyle King.
The blog cites an UsWeekly article which states the couple have broken up just a few days before celebrating what would have been their two-year anniversary. Viewers know that Maci has been anything but shy regarding a wedding with Kyle, and she has also spoken more than once about quickly starting a family with her beau. Those assertions allegedly caused many an argument between the pair, as Kyle wasn’t totally on board with kick starting such a planned future.
An insider claims, “Maci wanted something way more serious. She was never happy enough just being a couple. She always wanted more, more, more, whether it was a ring or another baby.”
The source continues, stating that Kyle was more than content to just date and live together at their place in Tennessee. “He broke it off. It’s really sad because they love each other but she pushed him away.”
Maci, however is denying these claims, and where do reality stars go to denounce such rumors? None other than their personal soapbox, Twitter. The MTV sweetheart tweeted yesterday, “Hahaha well once again the tabloids are wrong … Don’t waste your time!”
The magazine is alleging that that the straw that broke the camel’s back happened while Maci and Kyle were recently visiting California. After a heated fight about the state of their relationship on said trip, Maci allegedly left Kyle in a tizzy and stayed out partying until 3 AM. When will these girls learn that partying isn’t going to solve any of their problems?
The insider reveals, “Maci’s been partying way more lately [and] Kyle is not okay with it. She’s just not the girl he started dating.” Sounds like someone didn’t sign up for the life that comes with dating a “reality star.” Kind of makes me respect the poor guy. Kind of.
If these reports are on the up and up, it seems that Maci isn’t taking too well to the single life. The source claims, “She’s super, super upset right now, [b]ut she’s trying to keep herself busy. She’s just focused on Bentley and being an amazing mom.” If the break-up rumors are true, I do hope that Maci is focusing more on her son and less on the party circuit to get over ol’ Kyle.
In other news, Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom revealed that Leah Messer had cheated on her husband Corey Simms a mere week before the two got married. We all know now that Leah and Corey have divorced, and she has moved on with Jeremy Calvert.
The same site is alleging that Corey is doing his best to win back the mother of his twin daughters.
Citing an In Touch report, a friend of the former pair says, “Corey dumped his girlfriend and bought a home in order to lure Leah into his life again.”
There has been speculation that both Corey and Leah were unfaithful during the course of their courtship and union. Leah recently admitted to having sex with her ex a week before their wedding, while Corey has been accused of cheating while the duo was still married… but after they separated.
The insider tells the magazine, “He wants to prove to her that he’s a changed man this time.” I would like to think Corey is a changed man, however, this kind of change isn’t what I was hoping for in the young father.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE RECENT TEEN MOM NEWS? DO YOU THINK THAT KYLE HAS BROKEN UP WITH MACI? SHOULD COREY TRY TO WIN BACK LEAH? SHOULD SHE GO BACK TO HIM? ARE THESE QUESTIONS AS RIDICULOUS TO YOU AS THEY ARE TO ME? SAY IT AIN’T SO, COREY!
Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah. MTV, as well as teenage pregnancy awareness groups, often advocate that the Teen Mom spin-offs (along with their 16 and Pregnant predecessors) are doing an amazing job warning young girls about the perils of practicing unsafe sex and having babies too early. While that may be very true, it’s ironic that the same girls featured on these shows as “examples of what not to do” are the ones who are learning nothing from their current situations.
Case in point, Hollybaby.com is citing a story that claims Leah Messer, the just recently divorced mother of twin girls, is expecting her third child with boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, 22. You know, the guy she met in July a month after finalizing her divorce (also the one she moved in with in October). Apparently, she’s taking things slowly for a nineteen-year-old which scares the old lady in me immensely!
One of Leah’s “friends” (God love these girls’ “true friends”) tells InTouch Weekly that Leah has wanted to get pregnant with her new beau’s baby for a while… and that ‘while’ can’t be more than a couple months just by math’s sake, given the pair’s quick courtship. The pal reveals, “She was actively trying to conceive with Jeremy. She stopped using birth control last month.” Can I make a suggestion that will likely be shot down by readers and MTV alike? If your teen moms really want to continue being teen moms several times over, it’s probably time to take them out of the rotation.
On December 9, Leah was seen leaving St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Virginia. According to the source, the already mother of two “was glowing.” States the source, “She looked like she had just heard some big news.” Said witness is apparently also a lip reader, as he/she reported that Leah called Jeremy on her way out of her doctor’s appointment — which confirmed her home pregnancy results — to exclaim, “I’m pregnant.”
The friend continues as he/she is getting paid by the word, “[Leah] sees Jeremy act like a wonderful father and she believes the baby will make the family stronger. She thinks this is the best decision for Ali and Aleeah.” No word currently as to whether the 2-year-old twins’ father, Corey Simms, agrees. I’m going to venture a guess that he’s not on board. A source close to the former spouses agrees, admitting that Corey is beyond angry with his recent ex-wife. Corey, 21, allegedly said, “[She is] a slut and doesn’t have her head on straight.” Let’s watch it with the name calling there, bud. You have daughters to raise!
Another friend (they just come out of the woodwork, don’t they?) shares, “Leah forgets that she’s only been dating Jeremy for a few months.” Concurring is Leah’s stepfather. The pal says, “He thinks she is too young for another kid.”
Hopefully, if this news is true, Jeremy is in on this grand plan. The same blog is also reporting that Leah is ready to bestow the role of new daddy on her live-in love, and she is openly gushing that she’d love to be engaged to Jeremy. Is MTV taking the hint and planning on yet another wedding as the backdrop for season 3 of Teen Mom 2?
“Leah is going full stream ahead, she loves that Jeremy is acting like a father to the girls. She is more than fine with him taking Corey’s place,” says a source, who adds,“She doesn’t see anything wrong with it and is happy to be moving on.”
Not shockingly, Corey isn’t keen on being reduced to second fiddle in the twins’ lives. He retorts, “My girls know who their daddy is. I’d die for my girls. Jeremy is not there to replace me. No one will keep me from them.”
It is a blessing that the girls are loved by so many, with Jeremytweeting on December 16, “Happy Birthday Ali and Aleeah! You girls mean the word to me. I love you both beyond words!” He followed up his well wishes on Tuesday with a declaration to their mother: “@TM2LeahDawn baby I’ll always be there for u no matter what ! I love you!” Funny… not too long ago, Mr. Calvert’s tweets were private. I guess he can’t leave his fans in the dark! Regardless, wow. Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah.
DO YOU THINK THAT LEAH IS PREGNANT AGAIN? SHOULD SHE BE TRYING TO REPLACE COREY WITH JEREMY IN THE TWINS’ LIFE? TRICK QUESTION—OF COURSE NOT! DO YOU THINK JEREMY’S TWEETS ARE APPROPRIATE OR SHOULD HE BE MORE SENSITIVE TO COREY?
