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!

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!

DO YOU THINK LEAH NEEDS THE MONEY? DO YOU THINK LEAH AND JEREMY WILL LAST?
Congrats to Leah Messer? At the tender age of 19, the Teen Mom 2 star is pregnant once again and gearing up for her second marriage according to UsWeekly and E! News.
In fact, Leah’s new fiancé Jeremy Calvert confirmed the news to the all new Reality Weekly magazine.
“Yes, Leah is having my baby!” Jeremy tells Reality Weekly via the Hollywood Life. “I was at work when Leah called to tell me. She’d gotten blood work done and it came back positive. At first I was kind of surprised — but I was happy.”
Jeremy, 22, goes on to reveal he proposed to Leah on Dec. 25. “We got engaged on Christmas Day,” he states. “I bought an ornament for the tree that said ‘Engaged’ with both our names on it and the date. And when I saw Leah looking at it, that’s when I gave her the ring. It’s a 1.5 princess-cut diamond.”
As for Leah’s ex-husband/father of her twin girls Corey Simms, Jeremy reveals all is well between all parties. “We both get along with Corey,” Jeremy shared. “We drop the kids off and we talk. It works.” Indeed, Corey’s new girlfriend Summer Tavarezrecently revealed that “Corey likes Jeremy a lot.”
Jeremy adds that he feels Leah will make a great mother and wife. “Nothing ever gets Leah down,” he says. “She stands strong for the kids. And I know that no one is better to have as your kids’ mother than Leah.”
Leah and Jeremy started dating last August. This would be Leah’s third child (she is the mother of two-year-old twins Aliannah and Aleeah). Leah filed from divorce from Corey last April after only six months of marriage.
I’m sorry but personally, I find this to be quite tragic. This has disaster written all over it. A possible two marriages and three kids all at the age of 19? What happened to just being a teenager and enjoying life? I’m guessing the pregnancy came first and then the shot-gun engagement. Wowzers.
Below is another picture of Leah and Jeremy with her twins.

TELL US – THOUGHTS? HAPPY FOR LEAH? OR IS SHE TOO YOUNG?
Last night’s Teen Mom 2 was all about holiday hoopla, reconciliations and jail bait. Corey, Leah and the twins enjoy their birthday and first Christmas at home, while Kailyn struggles with sharing Isaac over the holiday. Chelsea can’t do much more than shoot googly eyes at Adam, while Jenelle tries her darndest to bail Kieffer out of jail in time for Christmas. Awww, the gift that keeps on giving… Ugg, ugg, and more uggs…literally.
Chelsea talks to Adam for the first time since their big fight after her surgery. Adam has a new job, and Chelsea wants to the pair cease fire before the holidays. Her mom is trying to be supportive and allow Chelsea to invite Adam over to the family’s Christmas. Adam comes to take Chelsea and Aubree to pick out a tree, and he reveals that his new job provides health benefits for Aubree as well as his child support will be garnished from his paycheck. That’s a start at least!

While many of you have expressed a love/hate relationship with Teen Mom 2 (and I can’t say I blame you), I can say with great confidence that all who watched Tuesday’s episode were thrilled to see that Leah Messer and Corey Simms’ daughter Ali wasn’t suffering from brain abnormalities which could lead to mental incapacity. While developmentally she is behind her twin Aleeah, she is healthy and doing well. In a recent interview, Leah opens up to Life and Style about getting the good news.
Upon hearing the diagnosis the young mother remembers, “I was relieved. The worst thing I could’ve heard would be that there’s something wrong with Aliannah’s brain.” Leah reveals it was difficult to mask her fear in front of her twin daughters, stating, “It was pretty hard and emotional as a mom to know that something could be wrong with my child.” Of Ali, who is continuing with physical therapy, Leah exclaims, “She’s doing great!”
Coy with the magazine about her new love, Jeremy Calvert– the guy she met and moved in with in a matter of months – Leah reveals, “Jeremy and I do talk about getting engaged.” Do tell!
And tell she does! Of course, by “she” I mean her ex-husband Corey’s new girlfriend Summer Taverez who gives an exclusive interview to HollywoodLife.com in an effort to jump start her fifteen minutes because apparently her plan of just dating Corey for fame didn’t work.
Summer begins in June (sorry, couldn’t resist), “I think Corey would be very supportive of [Leah's potential engagement]. He likes Jeremy a lot. Jeremy is a good guy.” Summer tells the site, “Him and Jeremy get along great. Actually especially just with me just hanging out with him, I was really surprised how they get along great.” I am the last one to talk smack about someone’s grammar (as you all know mine isn’t always well good!), but really?
“They co-parent very good. Corey gets the girls when he is supposed to and then Leah has them,” the paramour shares. Summer even discusses her first meeting with Corey’s ex-wife, recalling, “[Leah] was polite. She said ‘Hi.’ Jeremy and Corey talked a lot because they’re cool with each other. It wasn’t awkward or anything.” Teen Mom Swingers? MTV, are you paying attention?
Continuing her love fest for her — follow me — new boyfriend’s ex-wife’s maybe future fiance, Summer concludes that Jeremy is great because “the way he treats Leah and the girls is awesome.” Awe. Some. Summer, I think I hear a clock ticking… fourteen, thirteen, twelve…
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SUMMER’S INTERVIEW? SHOULD SHE BE DISCUSSING LEAH’S BUSINESS? DO YOU BELIEVE THINGS BETWEEN THE COUPLES ARE AS CHUMMY AS SHE’S MAKING IT SOUND?
The girls of Teen Mom 2 are at it again. They make a good decision, then they make two bad decisions. They seem to be on the right track, then they derail faster than Chelsea can whine that Adam’s changed. And the guys? Oh the guys! I know boys mature slower than girls, but COME. ON. It’s time to step up to the plate, with everyone acting like adults. There are children involved, after all.
We rejoin Jenelle Evans as she moves back in with mom Barbara after filing domestic violence charges against Kieffer. She is trying to redeem her failing grades and focus on her upcoming nineteenth birthday. Her mother seems passively supportive of her daughter’s efforts, but she is concerned that Kieffer will throw her back off course. The two both agree that Jenelle spending time with son Jace is the right thing to do.

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?
Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.
Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.
Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer. Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.
