leah calvert with daughters, ali in wheelchair

Leah Messer Simms Calvert Messer is NOT having a good year – she got caught cheating (via a gas station and a deer cam), her husband Jeremy Calvert got caught cheating (a couple times), she almost lost custody of her twins, she’s reportedly battling a serious drug addiction, and her marriage to Jeremy is all but dunzo! But the good news is, we get to watch the whole thing on Teen Mom 2 she’s finally getting some help!

MTV’s favorite Penis Fly Trap is presently in rehab, but not to battle her alleged pill addiction, but to seek help for serious depression related to stress. Suuuuure! A source closely connected with Leah reveals that the Teen Mom 2 star is in Utah receiving treatment at an in-patient facility and will likely be released by the end of June.

There’s been a lot of drama surrounding getting Leah into treatment. As she battled custody issues with ex-hubby Corey Simms and was (according to reports) served with divorce papers by Jeremy in April, sources reveal Leah suffered a complete breakdown, yet she refused to check-in to a facility fearing both Corey and Jeremy would both file for sole custody in her absence.

Both of Leah’s exes have allegedly retained the same family law attorney (ironically someone I know!) and considered scheduling an emergency custody hearing for all three of her daughters in her absence. In May, Leah was scheduled to leave for treatment, but when she got wind of Corey and Jeremy’s planned ambushed she refused to leave WV until she was given certainly that they wouldn’t go through with it! The entire saga was filmed for season 6 of TM2. Naturally. 

However, when faced with the ultimate threat of losing custody of her children (after an alleged intervention which included MTV) Leah finally agreed to get help. MTV confirms in a press release that Leah decided to “go away for intensive treatment.” 

Now everyone is in agreement that nothing regarding custody will be decided until Leah returns home. Sources tell OK! Magazine that Leah’s sister, Jeremy and Corey, along with Jeremy and Corey’s parents are pitching in with childcare while Leah gets help and that everyone is hopeful she’ll get her life together. 

The Ashley’s Reality Roundup says Leah was forced to get treatment by MTV or she would not be allowed to participate in Teen Mom 2 promotions, and her contract would be nullified, but also because of concern for her three young children. 

The source tells Us Weekly Leah was initially slated for a 30-day stint but will likely be released early because… she’s so damn annoying and they can’t fit all of her Mary Kay products in one room? She is then supposed to continue treatment closer to home. 

Hmmm.. OK, I know this will be unpopular but I have empathy for Leah. Growing up in WV I understand the insane availability of prescription drugs and although Leah has made manymanymanymany bad and selfish choices, I think she was simply unable to cope with all the drama in her life: twins, a child with serious health needs, constantly ridiculous relationships, divorce, lack of direction, etc, etc etc. I seriously hope she can sort herself out! 

TELL US – DO YOU THINK LEAH WILL FINALLY GET THE HELP SHE NEEDS?
