LEAH UNDER FIRE
Find out why Leah Messer’s fans are turning on her.
When Leah Messer pleads for sympathy, she usually finds it — but after the troubled Teen Mom 2 star accused MTV of “editing to manipulate the audience” into thinking she’s an unfit mom, her fans made it clear they’re tired of her excuses. “Nobody believes it’s editing because we have eyes and ears. The viewers aren’t stupid,” fumed one follower, referring to scenes in which the 23-year-old, who went to rehab for “depression and stress” last June amid rumors that she was also battling an addiction to prescription pills (which she’s denied), acts like she’s high, texts while
driving, feeds her daughter Adalynn, 3, sugar and Sweet’n Low packets and sits on the couch while her twins (Aliannah and Aleeah, 6, with ex-husband Corey Simms) and Addie (whose dad is her ex-husband Jeremy Calvert) beg for food. Her inability to keep the fridge stocked certainly isn’t MTV’S fault, critics noted — the reality star has been on the Teen Mom 2 gravy train since 2011. “Don’t blame the show for your parenting,” tweeted one, while another slammed: “Don’t bite the hand that feeds your lazy ass.”
TEXTING WHILE DRIVING
“Explain that,” said one Internet commenter of a scene where Leah opens sugar and Sweet’n Low packets for Addie, who downs them (meanwhile, her sisters are filmed complaining of hunger more than once). “MTV editing? That’s such bull it’s laughable.”
FEEDS ADDIE SWEET’N LOW
“So did they do some kind of magic and make it look like you were texting while driving with your kids in the car?” asked one Twitter follower after the March 21 premiere.
HIGH AS A KITE?
“Do you believe that MTV scripted Leah being high?” asked a critic after Leah was shown struggling to keep her eyes open while asking her sister to pick up the twins from school.
