Just when you think this story could not get sadder… Leah finalized her divorce over the phone from rehab, where she’s getting help for stress and depression.
Leah was served divorce papers on April 14th – and she and Jeremy finalized their divorce on Monday. I will meet y’all back here in another 54 DAYS to report that Leah is engaged, pregnant, married, divorced – all of the above? – again.
Leah continued her “happy marriage” charade last week on Facebook, “Today makes 3 years marriage for Jeremy and I. #ANNIVERSARY” Within minutes, however, “fans” and “inside sources” came out of the woodwork to call her bluff. Reportedly, the couple did NOT spend their anniversary together, and Jeremy hasn’t been wearing a wedding ring and has been carrying on like a single man for a lot longer than Leah wants to admit.
Apparently, the stars of Teen Mom want to accomplish as much as they can before they're of legal drinking age. One Teen Mom 2 star will have three college degrees babies before 21, one Teen Mom star has undergone three plastic surgeries, and one Teen Mom 2 star has logged three (to the tenth power) acts of volunteerism breakups and reconciliations before 21.
Leah confirmed the US Weekly story via facebook and tweeted:
"THANKS SOOO MUCH EVERYONE! #PositiveTweets makes this momma soooo happy!!! @Calvert505 are in such a good place! Love all of you!"
"Being a teen mom was difficult, but I'm older and in a different place now — married to Jeremy and excited for our family to grow," Leah said. "We feel incredibly blessed and look forward to this next chapter in our lives." Oh, Leah, why the rush? You might be "older" but you are still only 20.
Next, this week's In Touch cover revealed (more) plastic surgery for a different Teen Mom star.
Those Teen Moms. They’re like future-Housewives-in-training.
After being accused of having a nasty drug habit that includes LSD and prescription drugs and then breaking up with her allegedly-abusive boyfriend, Jenelle Evans is going to try to win back custody of her son, Jace.
Jenelle’s lawyer tells Radar Online that the Teen Mom 2 star is trying to straighten out her life and will request that the judge let her off probation early. To show how serious she is, she even deleted her Twitter account, y’all!
Her attorney says “Jenelle is trying to straighten her life out and the first step she’s taking is going to court and requesting that a judge let her out of probation. Jenelle has been doing really well. She is doing everything she is supposed to do and I’ve seen a big improvement in her life.”
Didn’t that violent drama with Gary Head just go down like two days ago? I suppose, two days is like two years passing by in Teen Mom Land.
Her mom has temporary custody of her son, but Jenelle is hoping to regain custody soon. “Nothing has been filed but Jenelle has expressed an interest in getting custody of Jace back. She would really like to have Jace back with her again.”
Moving along. In other Teen Mom news, Leah Messer’s friends are concerned that she rushed into her marriage to Jeremy Calvert.
After just eight months of dating, Leah and Jeremy tied the knot last week (in a private ceremony with cameras rolling) and now her friends are speaking out, claiming they are worried that Leah is still much too in love with ex-husband Corey Simms for her marriage to work.
Her “friend” says she’s settling with Jeremy because he’s safe: “Leah isn’t in love with Jeremy the way she loved Corey. She trusts Jeremy and knows he’s good for her daughters. Right now, that’s more important than how she feels.”
I’m sure that makes Jeremy feel special. Although, Leah did admit just a month ago that she still had feelings for Corey, so it shouldn’t be too big of a shock to hear.
Speaking of Leah’s twin daughters, Ali has just hit an important milestone. Sources report that the developmentally-delayed two year old has started walking!
“Ali is able to walk when someone stands behind her while holding her hand. It’s a major step toward walking solo. ”
The toddler is excited to finally start running around with her sister, Aleeah. “She wants to be able to run around and play with Aleeah!”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JENELLE EVANS SHOULD REGAIN CUSTODY OF HER SON? HAS SHE GROWN UP AT ALL? DO YOU THINK LEAH AND JEREMY ARE DOOMED TO FAIL?
The latest issue of OK! Magazine states that things are very shaky with the couple, adding that they in fact broke up earlier this year, but shortly got back together.
“It’s a daily struggle for them to get along right now,” a source tells OK!. “He is under a lot of pressure at work and he brings it home with him.”
The source continues, “They usually make up pretty quickly, but the constant bickering is really wearing on Jeremy. He’s been complaining to his friends about it so much that everyone is wondering if he’s going to break up with Leah permanently.”
Another issue for the couple, is their lack of trust. Leah, 19, is reportedly very suspicious of Jeremy, 22 (perhaps those reports of him with strippers has to do with it) while Jeremy believes Leah’s not over her ex-husband and father of her twins Corey Simms, and has accused her of still being in love with him.
“Her paranoia really stresses Jeremy out and it’s pushing him away,” reveals the source. “She needs to loosen up the reins a little, but the problems aren’t all Leah’s fault. Jeremy is a typical guy and he can be really insensitive sometimes.” As reported, Leah also suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
Moving on to troubled Teen MomAmber Portwood, who is now reportedly considering getting into porn. Yikes.
According to Reality Weekly, Vivid Entertainment offered Amber $500,000 last year to star in a porno movie. Amber of course turned down the offer, but sources close to her are now claiming she has had a change of heart and is considering it due to her mounting legal fees.
Even worse for Amber, 21, who revealed in court that she earns $280,000 a year from MTV, the network just announced last week that the upcoming season of her Teen Mom series will be the last.
“Her paycheck from MTV only goes so far, and she’s really worried it will soon all be over,” a source tells Reality Weekly. “And Amber hasn’t gotten any other offers as far as TV shows or promotions.”
But unfortunately–or fortunately–for Amber, Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch says his company is no longer interested in having Amber display her talents on screen.
“We would not be willing to pay Amber $500,000 anymore,” Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven tells the HollywoodLife. “I don’t believe she is as popular as she once was. She was more of a novelty.”

TELL US – DO YOU THINK LEAH AND JEREMY WILL MAKE IT? THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH AMBER?
Oh, Teen Mama Drama — why must you happen so frequently? Leah Messer recently announced she is both prego and getting married round two, but what is the Teen Mom 2‘s real reason for getting married?
Star Magazine reports that Leah has an ulterior motive for tying the knot so quickly to new baby daddy Jeremy Calvert. Money!
“Leah wants to get married so she can earn money by selling wedding photos and interviews,” a friend tells the gossip mag. “It’s the only way she can make money from the media under her contract. She didn’t get a bonus or anything from MTV for marrying on the show, but she can get a lot of money from the other things.”
Despite her rather large MTV paycheck, Leah apparently needs the money badly. So she’s pregnant again, why? “Leah needs the money,” the friend discloses. “Since she already lives with Jeremy, she doesn’t think a whole lot would change between them if they tie the knot.” I guess she’s forgotten that adding a newborn to the mix, along with her two-year-old twins will likely change things something drastic. But you know — rational thinking, smatsional schminking!
“I think they’re really good for each other,” the friend reveals of Leah’s warp speed relationship. “I just don’t think they should rush into marriage.”
In other news, Jeremy is apparently upset that fans are accusing Leah of paying for her own engagement ring! Taking to Twitter, Jeremy called out doubters claiming he paid for the 1.5 carat princess cut diamond ring himself! “umm FYI I don’t make a penny from MTV my own money bought it!,” he tweeted.
Explaining that he works as a “pipeline engineer for miller pipeline” “6 to 7 days a week outside in the cold” to earn a living. I have to say — good for Jeremy for working hard!
After defending himself to detractors, Leah tweeted: “I love you more then anything in the world baby, your my one and only!! :)),” so the world knows she stands by her man. Well, hopefully these two are happy and they aren’t getting married for the wrong reasons!
