It must be time for salary negotiations because rumors are popping up that Teen Mom 2 stars/train wrecks Leah Messer and Jenelle Evans are threatening to leave the show that made them thousandaires.
While, Jenelle no doubt needs the extra cash for her legal fees and tattoo habit, a source tells Reality Weekly that Leah has developed quite an ego since becoming “famous” and hilariously says that “She really has gotten a big head because of all the attention. A lot of people in Elk View joke that she’s like the redneck Kim Kardashian.” Does that mean fiancé Jeremy Calvertis her Kris Humphries? Will they get married for 72 hours?
To be fair, Leah has had a very difficult year; she had a miscarriage and was assaulted by a group of women. She feels she’s given a lot to the show, and the show owes her for her pain and suffering, including her divorce to Corey Simms. “Leah says she’s fed up with the interference in her life, and she can’t take any more.”
Jeremy still hasn’t appeared on the show, and it’s easy to see why. The source says, “It’s no wonder she’s cautious. She’s already been through more stress in a year then some people face in a lifetime.”
As for Jenelle, she gets brownie points for having her manager (yes, she has one) go on the record, with his actual name, to advocate for her raise. Her manager, Leo Daniels, says it’s time for more money: ”She needs to renegotiate because she’s not getting anything near what the other girls are getting, and she’s the highest rated Teen Mom.”
She’s the highest rated because no one can turn away. Like many cocky reality stars before her, Jenelle feels she has the upper hand in this negotiation. Some unnamed insider is quoted saying, “She feels certain that she deserves a raise, but there are plenty of other options out there. She will quit the show if she doesn’t get that extra money.”
Beware this strategy, ladies! The network will call your bluff and fire you. Just ask a few housewives how well this works. There are many other teen moms waiting in the wings and happy to replace you. I say keep that MTV salary. It’s more than most normal folks will ever see.

Aw, poor Leah! On last week’s Teen Mom2 reunion with Dr. Drew, Leah Messer cried when asked about her relationship with ex-husband and father of her twin girls, Corey Simms, and it turns out she’s got quite a few emotions about the men in her life.
A source close to Leah, 21, tells UsWeekly, “She misses Corey, and part of her wishes she could make things work. But another part of her loves Jeremy and wants to start a clean slate with him.”
This season, Leah finally confirmed the rumor that she had cheated on Corey a week before they got married in October 2010. While they attempted to work things out, the relationship ended and since Leah has been with now fiance Jeremy Calvert.
The source also reveals that Corey misses Leah as well, saying “Corey likes Jeremy because he’s good to his girls, but he’d take Leah back in a second.”
Leah‘s had a tough year: first she suffered a miscarriage, and recently was assaulted by three women who recognized her from the show. The source states that the January miscarriage “changed things” for Leah in regards to her feelings for Jeremy. “She took it as a sign that things might not be right.”
Per the source, the stress is putting strain on the relationship between the couple, and “Jeremy knows Leah isn’t as certain about their relationship now. Their engagement is definitely on a rocky path.”
In more amusing news, Jenelle Evans decided to spend her MTV money on a back tattoo which she revealed to all her Twitter followers. This is the second tattoo Jenelle has had done in the last few months, the first was a matching tattoo with her boyfriend of the most annoying catch phrase of our time, “YOLO.” Jenelle should have spent her tattoo money on her legal defense, she’s been in court so many times this year for drug possession and cyber stalking.
You be the judge of Jenelle’s investment below.
TELL US: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JENELLE’S TATTOO? WHO SHOULD LEAH STAY WITH, JEREMY OR COREY?

After being attacked outside a West Virginia movie theater by three women, Leah Messer is terrified to leave her house, according to sources!
Two weeks ago, Leah and her fiancé Jeremy Calvertwere walking in a parking lot, when three women approached her. “The women started screaming, ‘Look, it’s that bitch from Teen Mom!’” an insider tells In Touch Weekly. The women then followed the couple, and according to Leah, beat her “viciously,” bruising her face and chest.
After the incident, Leah has become seized by fear that something may happen to her again. “Leah’s now terrified to leave her home,” the insider explains. “There are just so many haters.”
The attack has left a precarious Leah, already distraught over a recent miscarriage, depressed and according to friends, has pushed her over the edge. “She is on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” the source adds. Hopefully things will improve for the mom of twins!
Moving on to other Teen Mom 2 news, Jenelle Evans is still dealing with custody issues! The tumultuous Jenelle, who after a string of recent arrests, confessed to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, now worries that the diagnosis will keep her from parenting Jace.
Jenelle has been seeing a doctor recently and is now on medication to help control her violent mood swings, which have contributed to her unruly and dangerous behavior in the past. But Jenelle is, surprisingly, thinking ahead and worrying that she won’t be capable of caring for Jace long-term!
“She is really, really scared,” an insider shares with Reality Weekly. “Jenelle is worried she’ll end up going off the deep end. It’s her nightmare that she is going to end up in the psych ward.” Jenelle’s fear is exacerbated by her brother’s diagnosis. “My brother, he has bipolar and schizophrenia,” Jenelle recently confessed to Dr. Mohammed, the Medical Director at Malibu Horizon Drug Alcohol Rehab Treatment Center
Jenelle is so concerned about her mental stability, she is wondering if she should relinquish custody permanently! “It’s one of the reasons she’s wondered if she should give up Jace,” the source admits. “She’s that scared she won’t be able to take care of him down the road.”
Apparently, Jenelle’s fears have been haunting her in her dreams and she grows more afraid by the day. “She’s been calling herself crazy,” the source adds. “She spends a lot of time in tears.”
Friends also worry about Jenelle’s long-term mental health. “She has always been off,” says a former pal. “She gets something on her mind and gets very obsessed with it. She can’t sleep or calm down.”
Hopefully both Leah and Jenelle can get their demons and behaviors under control for the sake of their children! At least Jenelle has the support of her mother, Barbara Evans, to raise Jace.
And finally, while the second season of Teen Mom 2 only concluded last week, MTV has already began filming on a new season of the series! Kailyn Lowrytweeted the photo below this week which shows MTV camera crews filming her along with her friends. No word yet on when the new season will air.
As we reported yesterday, MTV has also greenlighted Teen Mom 3 which will likely feature some of the cast members from the upcoming 16 and Pregnant season.
ARE LEAH’S FEARS JUSTIFIED? SHOULD JENELLE GIVE UP CUSTODY OF JACE OR JUST TRY TO MANAGE HER MENTAL ILLNESS? DO YOU BELIEVE JENELLE WILL BE ABLE TO GET HER ACT TOGETHER AND BE A MOTHER?
Last night, we bid farewell to the girls of the second Teen Mom…with the help of Dr. Drew of course!
After putting Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry in the hot seat last week, Drew has Chelsea Houska on the sofa. She reveals that her relationship with Adam is civil, but does include hooking up with him, Dr. Drew pronounces it not healthy. Wow. I think I could do his job. After recapping Chelsea’s season, I wish Dr. Drew would ream her for riding on Adam’s motorcycle without a helmet. Instead he applauds her for her accomplishments…which I guess she deserves. He mentions her former friend, Megan, who recently had her baby, and Chelsea is quick to say that she hates that her friend is missing out on her youth like she did.

No, no, no! Corey’ Simms‘ camo hat seems to be prohibiting rational thoughts from coming out of that noggin of his!
The current issue of Us Weekly has those close to the jilted Teen Dad–whose wife of six months Leah Messer confessed to cheating on him a week before they were married–speculating that he wants her back! The couple’s divorce was highlighted on the final episodes of this season’s Teen Mom 2 after Leah spilled the infidelity beans, claiming Corey wouldn’t have sex with her in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Well, if that is the case, her cheating must have been justified! #dumbestexcuseever
The pair’s divorce was finalized in June of last year, with Leah jumping straight into another relationship, another cohabitation, and another engagement rather quickly with new beau Jeremy Calvert. Leah even tragically suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant by Jeremy. However, none of this information seems to dissuade Corey from wanting to reconcile with the mother of his twin daughters.
A “friend” of his explains to the magazine, “Corey is still crazy for Leah. He doesn’t want her to marry Jeremy.”
Another source laments, “He did all he could to make it work, as she’s the only girl he ever loved.”
Said source must also be a mutual friend of Leah’s, because he/she believes that Corey’s hopes are a lost cause, sharing, “Leah will always care about Corey, but she’s happy with Jeremy. Watching this season made her relive their problems.” Their problems. Could “their problems” have something to do with the fact that Leah cheated on her groom-to-be and then blamed the demise of their marriage on him not wanting to buy a new trailer? Nah, probably different problems…
Not so fast there, Lauren! Apparently Leah has amped up her “no sex before the wedding is a valid reason to cheat” excuse to include–dum da dum dum–porn! Specifically, Corey was watching porn instead of bedding his fiance. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am shocked and appalled. Corey watches porn? Corey, the young twenty-something male who didn’t want a trailer upgrade and needed subtitles, watches porn? If she had told me he read classic novels until late into the night so he was too tired for sexy time or even that his Sudoku addiction interfered with his libido, I’d believe her…but porn? That’s a stretch.
In a sneak peek video posted below, the couple is seen discussing their sex life (or apparently lack thereof) with Dr. Drew in a premiere for tomorrow night’s final episode. While Corey claims the pair had a very active and normal sex life, Leah maintains that he wasn’t very affectionate towards her in the weeks leading up to their wedding due to all the porn he was watching.
“I felt like you was looking at her, and thinking…I mean, I kinda felt like that was cheating,” Leah tells Corey during the Drew-led conversation. Eh, maybe, but not as much cheating as actually having intercourse with someone other than your partner. But that’s just me.
Enough on the second installment of Teen Moms, the original Teen Moms need some attention too! Realityweeklymagazine.com is reporting that Corey isn’t the only one from the franchise chasing down an old flame. Apparently, Maci Bookout has her sights set on ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in light of her recent break-up with long-time love Kyle King. You recall that the pair didn’t make it after alleged pressure on Kyle from Maci to marry her ASAP. Of course, does anyone think that Maci was ever really over Bentley’s dad?
Yet another “source” close to the young mom reveals, “He’s always been the one. She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”
Ahh, young love. I wonder if these girls will ever learn that being “hot” isn’t the most important building block in a healthy, stable relationship. Probably not.
The conclusion of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10 PM ET.
DO YOU THINK COREY REALLY WANTS TO RECONCILE WITH LEAH? WILL THE TWO GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON HIS PORN WATCHING LEADING TO HER CHEATING? WAS MACI EVER REALLY OVER RYAN?
It’s the curtain call for the girls of Teen Mom 2, and we can only hope they have learned from their many struggles during the recent installment of the franchise. It’s doubtful, but we can hope! Last night the moms sat down with, the one-and-only, Dr. Drew Pinsky, to discuss the hardships they faced during their sophomore season.
Dr. Drew begins with a recap of the season. Sidebar, are Kailyn and Leah going to the same hairdresser? Their hairstyles are shades of off-white and stark white, respectively. After watching the footage, both are already teary. Kailyn claims she is upset watching her friend get upset. The show has brought the pair closer.
Chelsea reveals that Aubree loves doing her hair and make-up. It appears that maybe Chelsea was sitting a seat over from the blondes in the salon. She has also been visiting Year Round Brown, as she’s very tan. Jenelle expounds on what Chelsea has said about Aubree and Jace…apparently the toddlers are either fighting or making out when they are in the same room. The therapy session cuts to commercial, and of course the first advertisement (of many, I’m sure) introduces the newest teens on 16 and Pregnant. #Depressing.

According to a new TMZ report, Leah, 19, was attacked by three women over the weekend outside of a movie theater, in West Virginia. Sources reveal Leah was getting ready to leave the theater with her fiancé, Jeremy Calvert, on Sunday night when an older woman began following her and calling her names.
While Leah asked the woman to leave her alone, two more girls appeared, and all three decided to jump Leah. Luckily for Leah, Jeremy and a security guard were able to break things up and get Leah away from her attackers.
Leah suffered injuries which included, a swollen cheek and redness on her chest and neck. Leah maintains she does not know who her attackers are, and plans to file a police report.
A photo of Leah’s injuries is below.
Moving on to troubled Teen Mom, Amber Portwood, who is gearing up to leave jail and enter a drug program halfway house. If you recall, the judge in Amber’s case gave her the option of doing five years in prison or entering a drug program.
Amber chose the latter, but suffered an unexpected blow when the judge told her she could NOT film anything for MTV while doing the program, and had to get a regular 9 – 5 job, that does not include filming for Teen Mom.
According to a shocking new report by E! Online, sources close to Amber reveal that despite her past comments about wanting to get out of her contract with MTV, she is now having second thoughts as she a) needs the income and b) does not want to get a 9 – 5 job like all the other regular folk.
Even worse for Amber, she has spent most of her MTV earnings on her legal fees. Sources tell E! Amber decided, Saturday, that she would rather “do her time now and get it out of the way,” because the halfway house is “not the right place for her. She’d have a 10 p.m. curfew and would never see Leah because she wouldn’t want to bring Leah around that place.”
Err… Amber does realize ‘doing her time now and getting it out of the way’ means doing five years in prison right?
“The system doesn’t want Amber to succeed,” the source said. “She needs to stay in the entertainment industry. There are no jobs in Anderson. She needs to finish her schooling. She can’t do all of that with a $7-an-hour job.”
A court clerk tells E! News that Amber has to stay in the drug program for a minimum of 18 months, and up to a maximum of three years. While doing the program, Amber is also required to appear in drug court every week.
MTV is currently filming a new season of Teen Mom, which will reportedly premiere sometime in April. E! reports Amber hasn’t filmed since Thanksgiving.

Last night was the 90 minute finale of Teen Mom 2. Doesn’t MTV realize that some of us have to go to bed at a decent hour? It’s not a feature length movie (yet), it’s a weekly television program. Sheesh.
The show begins as Jenelle heads out west and she moves to Beverly, Hills that is enters a rehab program. She’s met at the airport by a counselor (?) and shares her fears and anxieties with him as she texts on the way to her Malibu center. The staff searches her bags, and she is quick to admit there may be a “blunt wrapper” or two among her belongings. A quick urine test reveals that she has marijuana in her system. No biggie. She meets with her therapist who lectures her on any drug talk. Jenelle tells her that she wants to repair the relationship with her mother, and her only problem with weed is that she’s not allowed to smoke it. Fair enough. Dr. Drew? Are you watching?
