Fans are NOT happy!
Anyone who’s had children can tell you that being a parent isn’t easy. On top of all of the basics like keeping your children happy and healthy, there are endless surprise problems that no one prepares you for when it comes to having kids. Even though some parents have a vast support network to help when they’re in need, this wasn’t the case for everyone on the Teen Mom cast.
When they were just sixteen years old, they had to grow up quick in order to be parents, but it wasn’t always easy. On top of raising babies while they were still children themselves, they had the added complication of having their every moved followed around by cameras, the media, and fans.
Luckily, most of the Teen Mom cast members have outgrown the learning curve they first had when they were on 16 and Pregnant. Now many of them are having their second or third children, and this time, they’re practically pros. Of course, that doesn’t mean they won’t mess up from time to time.
Leah Messer has had her fair share of controversial parenting techniques from the very beginning, but fans have been supportive through her struggles to care for her twins and their younger sister. Now, she may be losing some of that support after this recent update.

So The Drama
This season of Teen Mom 2, Leah Messer has gotten caught up in the drama just like her co-stars. Astoundingly, even though she’s not really involved, she’s managed to get caught up in the feuding that’s taken place between Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus! In the premiere episode, Briana and Leah get real with each other about Brian’s relationship with Javi, and things get very tense very fast.
In the first clip, Leah Messer enters the dressing room as hair and makeup get the girls dolled up. She chats with Briana about baby daddy drama. “[Luis] got this new job, so now he’s a truck driver and on the road. He doesn’t even check up on [Stella],” she reveals. “My first baby daddy is something else. Now he’s in jail for outstanding warrant for some drug situation. He likes fighting with me so hard trying to keep Nova… I get so stressed out thinking about him!” she exclaims.
Leah asks if Briana has had a chance to chat with anyone else, but Briana spills that she isn’t really friends with any of the other cast members yet. “The only person I’m close with is Javi Marroquin,” she explains. And given their flirting on social media, that seems to have set off a red flag for Leah real quick.
“I’m so confused about that,” Leah admits. “I see you guys talk on Twitter, and then… It just kind of looked like… I don’t know!”
“He was coming [to Orlando] anyways to take Lincoln and Isaac,” Briana explains. “He’s going to stay with us at the same resort and we’re just going to hang out with the kids. But we’re just friends,” Briana says, but quickly makes it clear she’s not so sure! “So I think! Who really knows? I just dont know how [Kailyn Lowry]’s going to feel about it.”
Leah says what we’re all thinking: “I don’t think she’ll be happy!
In the next clip, it’s clear that trying to keep this secret has gotten to Leah after she returned home. She tells a producer, “I think I’m going to call Kail about what Briana told me. Afterwards I just felt super uncomfortable. If I don’t tell her I feel like she’s going to be upset that I didn’t say anything to her.”
Leah is loyal to her friends, so she goes through with her plan to tell Kailyn about what Briana told her. Of course, that doesn’t go over very well with Briana! Now it seems that Briana sees Leah as just as much of an enemy as Kailyn, so their relationship is at a low point. In fact, Briana has tweeted about Leah being “fake” during the reunion!
But Leah has enough on her mind. She has her hand full with her own children and baby daddy drama, including a recent decision that got her in hot water with fans.
“Leah let the girlses get acrylic nailses,” shared user bippityboppityb*tch on reddit. In Leah’s short Snapchat update, she shares that Aleeah and Ali both got full acryllic nails with the caption, “I’m doomed.” For anyone who’s had acryllic nails before, it’s easy to see why this was such a controversial choice among Leah’s fans.
“I personally think this is way too young for those. They f*ck your real nails up for a long time and they’re expensive to maintain,” wrote user MommyOfOnee. “Why didn’t she just let them get press on nails? That’s easy enough. Jesus acrylics are going to shred their baby nails,” wrote ghsted. User HeidiFloss agreed, “Breaking a nail hurts! Kids play too much for all that.” User tiais0107 even thinks Leah may be spoiling her daughters, writing, “I personally don’t think this is right. Acrylic nails are for adults and they are expensive. Leah is making a rod for her own back because what’s cute at 9 becomes entitled/ demanding at 15!” They added, “I had them over a decade ago and my nail bed is still damaged.”
Recently, Leah’s parenting is coming under fire even more. She’s recently been blasted by fans for her daughter Aleeah’s behavior in the most recent episode of Teen Mom 2.
“Today, I’m taking Aleeah to the therapist for the first time,” Leah spilled in a voiceover in the episode. “Are you excited?” Leah asked her daughter. “How do you feel? Tell me your feels!”
“I feel weird,” Aleeah explained to her mother.
“I felt weird the first time I went to therapy,” Leah revealed. “Did you know that I went to therapy?”
Aleeah made a funny face and said, “Duh!!” which didn’t sit righ with Leah.
“That’s just rude!” the mother of three said. “So d*mn rude.”
