Leah Messer is claiming Teen Mom 2, the show that made her rich and sort of famous has ruined her life. Well, until she cashes that paycheck! “It’s making her life hell!” a friend reports to In Touch.
One of Leah’s dilemmas? She never gets a break from filming! “The crew often shows up unexpectedly and stays for a weeks at a time,” a friend explains adding that Leah tells friends she feels like she’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Leah is also terrified about the dangerous effects the production could have on her twin daughters, Aliannah and Aleeah.
The friend reveals that Leah feels “the show controls her,” and according to her friend, she “thinks MTV is determined to make her look like a bad mom.” The friend reports that the MTV producers allegedly manipulate the drama and make too many demands of Leah and her daughters – including stunts such as waking the twins up in the middle of the night for filming! What?! “One of the producers is so rude to the girls which makes Leah’s blood boil!” reveals a source.
Issue #3? Apparently, the mom of twins, who still has two-years left in her MTV contract, worries the producers will edit her to be “slutty” on the upcoming season by drawing negative attention to her divorce and her expansive post-divorce dating habits. Leah reportedly went through many menz before coupling up with current boyfriend, Jeremy Calvert!
Additionally Leah has concerns that the network’s portrayal of her dramatic divorce from Corey Simms, which was surrounded by allegations of cheating, will negatively affect her daughters.
All valid points! Hopefully MTV will make the responsible decision to handle the implosion of Leah’s marriage with dignity. Although, my moneys betting on NO for that!
Teen Mom 2 will return to MTV for an all new season in December.

Thoughts on Leah’s predicament? Do you believe the show has ruined her life? Feed bad for her?
If you just can’t handle any more annoying trashy drama concerning Jenelle Evans don’t read on!
Apparently the anger management-challenged Teen Mom was involved in another physical altercation. This time with her mom, BarbaraEvans. The two have always had a tense relationship to say the least, but the latest incident warranted police intervention.
On September 6th Barbara called the police over Jenelle’s aggressive behavior. According to police dispatch, Barbara told officers that Jenelle “started cursing at her, calling her names, and was destroying the residence.”
Barbara reported that Jenelle “went into Barbara’s room and knocked her things off her dresser to the ground,” following an argument.
Well, Jenelle has a different version of the events! Jenelle blamed her mother for starting the fight and making her angry! Right, Jenelle – you were completely innocent (eye roll). Jenelle maintains “she was washing her clothes when her mother came into the laundry room and was arguing with her,” and then “knocked over a shelf spilling bleach in the washing machine with her clothes.” No clothes were ruined in the incident in case, you were wondering.
Jenelle also claims that she went into her mom’s room to get some items off the floor and she accidentally knocked her things on the floor when she accidentally bumped into the dresser.
The fight continued in the kitchen where Jenelle was “working on her laptop” (working on what, I wonder… ) and her mother came into the kitchen to give Jenelle’s son, Jace some medicine. Jenelle alleges her mother “threw the medicine on her, her laptop and then threw the bottle at her.” Luckily Jenelle was able to salvage her laptop by cleaning up the medicine before any damage occurred.
Possibly poking holes in Jenelle’s story, the officer reports he did not see any medicine on her or the computer.
While Barbara told police she did not want to press charges against her daughter, Jenelle wasn’t feeling so charitable and “swore she would file a simple assault charge against Barbara.” In the end – after wasting law enforcement’s time – Jenelle decided she wouldn’t file charges after all and no arrests were made. Yeah, if Barbara had been arrested who would take care of Jace?

Whose version of events do you believe, Barbara’s or Jenelle’s? Is Jenelle totally out of control and in need of serious help justified in being so upset with her mom?

In today’s shocking news, it turns outJersey Shore’sresident dysfunctional couple Ronnieand Sammiare still going strong months after getting back together, you know, for the umpteenth time!
If you recall, the two called it quits back in January only to reunite while MTV filmed the 4th season in Italy back in May. Fast forward to today and Sammi reveals all is still well between the two.
“We’re going strong,” Sammi told the HollywoodLife blog at the Bebe runway show on Sept. 12. She also adds that now that she and Ronnie are back home from Seaside and working on their relationship away from the cameras, she is open to doing more seasons of the Jersey Shore! The cast just finished filming season 5 a few weeks ago.
“I’d love for as many ‘Jersey Shores’ that come, I would love to continue to do it, ” said Sammi also admitting she wouldn’t mind going overseas again to film because she “loves to travel.”
In other news, just days after her fellow meatballSnooki showed off her new tats, Deena Cortese is now doing the same! The show’s resident hot mess blast in a glass reveals she spent the weekend of August 20 getting a very personal saying inked on both of her feet: “Tell me I can’t and I’ll show you I can.”
“I did it because I like the saying,” Deena, 24, told Us Weekly. “I like proving people wrong.” She adds that the tats took over two hours to complete.
Photos of Deena’s dumb tattoo below!
TELL US – SURPRISED RONNIE & SAMMI ARE STILL TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON DEENA’S NEW TAT: YAY? NAY?
Last night MTV decided to punish grace us with thirty extra minutes of Teen Mom, which was a tad confusing as it was just thirty extra minutes of the same old, same old. It seemed unnecessary. But enough of that, the ninety-minute episode had Amber continuing her legal battles with Child Protective Services, more drama erupting between Maci and Ryan, Farrah’s family going to counseling, and Catelynn and Tyler vacationing on Dwight Shrute’s beet farm.
Once out of the clink, Amber breaks up with Clinton so she can focus on herself and Leah. She was apparently in jail for twenty-four hours. I know this because she must tell her friend that twenty-four times during a two minute phone conversation.
Catelynn has finished her requirements for graduation. Even though their ceremony is a few months away, she and Tyler are eager to find out how Carly’s adoptive parents will respond to the invitation to come see the pair accept their high school diplomas. One quick check of their ipad (thanks, MTV!) reveals that Carly’s adoptive parents have sent Catelynn an e-mail. They are very proud of the teen’s accomplishments, but they are unable to give an answer as to whether they will come to graduation. They need more time to think about it. Not defeated, Catelynn and Tyler can see what a difficult decision this must be for Carly’s adoptive parents. The couple hopes that they will come, but they understand if they choose not to attend.

Last night was Jersday for all you Jersey Shore fanatics (no shame in that game!). Mike is slightly immobile, Rawn and Sam get back together (no I’m not re-recapping last week), Pauly and Vin make fun of juiceheads who are juicier than themselves, and Snooki’s relationship with Jionni leaves the house up at arms.
So Mike will be sporting the neck brace for ten days, and it’s quite a situation as it’s rendered him unable to GTL. The horror! After Ronnie tore the house apart and shattered what (if any) was left of Sammi’s self-esteem and dignity the night before, he goes to her in the morning to profess his love. He hopes she’ll let him talk to her later. I am overwhelmed at his maturity…this relationship just may make it after all. They are so cute together and when it’s good, it’s great! In other news, I wish there was a sarcasm font.

For those of you who still watch, the Real World is back for its 2 millionth season (ok actually, only 26th) with its newest installment Real World: San Diego.
Featuring the tried and true premise that has worked for over two decades, six roommates live in a house and see how much they can get on each other’s nerves, hook up, party, and supposedly undergo life changes, oh and get real. Sadly, I still remember when this show was only in its 4th and 5th seasons!
To prepare you for the excitement and the drama, MTV has released the trailer for the new season. The new cast members are Ashley Kelsey, Alexandra Govere, Frank Sweeney, Nate Stodghill, Priscilla Mendez, Samantha McGinn, and Zach Nichols. MTV has yet to release the cast photos.
Also, to prepare you for the drama, the contract MTV requires all castmates to sign has been released and it includes some very interesting (re: gruesome) provisions, which include allowing MTV to have blanket rights to their entire lives even if their story and the events are misrepresented. Included in the 30-page document are some of the following stipulations:
All castmates are made aware they may be subjected to: “non-consensual physical contact which could result in which could result in my contracting of any type of sexually transmitted disease, including without limitation, HIV/AIDS, gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), Chlamydia, scabies (crabs), hepatitis, genital warts, and other communicable and sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy, which MTV is not responsible for. “ So MTV is condoning … rape?
You may die, lose limbs, and suffer nervous breakdowns. (Stipulation 1)
You may be humiliated and explicitly portrayed “in a false light.” (Stipulation 12)
Producers are under no obligation to conduct background checks on your fellow cast members. (Stipulation 7) I find this particularly interesting.
You agree that you are not pregnant and if you do become pregnant, you’ll tell the Producer immediately–and pregnancy is grounds for dismissal. (Stipulation 38)
You can’t change your physical appearance during filming, without the Producer’s express permission. (Stipulation 26)
Your email may be monitored during participation. (Section 20b)
Normally (i.e. the real real wold) these practices would be considered a “serious” invasion of privacy, but since contestants agree to participate in the show this is all completely legal.
Contestants promise not to hide from MTV cameras in establishments where they can’t film. The production crew can show up at your personal house at any time to film and/or to take anything they want, as long as they return the objects once production has ended. (Section 20a)
Additionally, MTV’s contract also demands that cast members be at their beck and call for up to five-years following the conclusion of filming:
- For one year after the show’s final episode airs, cast members are required to participate in all producer-determined press and forbidden from engaging in any media (radio, television, chat rooms, blogs) without the Producer’s written permission. (9)
- The Producer holds the authorship and copyright to every photograph, email, website, sound or video recording, documented performance created in relation to the program, on every medium imaginable. (8)
- You’re obligated to participate in a Reunion Special for up to five years after the show ends, you’ll be paid $2500 for your involvement, and the Producer only has to give you 14 days notice. (50c)
- You’re required to participate in book or home video projects for two years after the show ends, and you’ll be paid $750.00 for each one. (50f)
You can view the full contract here. Personal aside: I’ve spoken to reality TV producers that work for other networks and have worked for MTV, they informed me this is a fairly standard contract for reality television participants. It makes you wonder if having your 15-minutes of fame is worth it…
The trailer for the new season can be seen below! Real World: San Diego premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28 on MTV
Jersey Shore’s “Twinning” aired last night with Mike winning twins. He loses one to Deena while losing his friendship with Snooks. Rawn and Sam make-up, while Vinny and Pauly, as always, entertain the masses.
The episode starts out with Florida chick trying to find her clothes while the Situation tries to find her a cab. Mike gets distracted on his way to the phone and feels the need to nap on the patio furniture where he proceeds to get attacked by a pigeon. Not once, but twice. How can you not believe in karma?
Ronnie can’t believe that after three seasons of this mess, he is just now realizing how alike he and Snooki are. They are both DTWO (down to work out), DTD (down to drink), DTP (down to party), and DTHAGT (down to have a good time)…I assume that DTF is implied, although hopefully not with each other. Neither are DTRAM (down to read a map) so when they can’t find the gym, the pair opts for cocktails at a local bistro. Snooki seems to be the only one in the house who hope Rawn and Sam reconcile because the drama Snooks brings pales in comparison to their relationship.
