“Teen Mom 2” star Leah Messer is a two-time divorced mother of three girls, and now she’s afraid her first husband, Corey Simms, will steal their twin girls from her. The former couple met at a pizzeria to discuss their daughters, Ali and Aleeah, after Corey pleaded for more time with the 5-year-olds.
Corey, 25, said they would be safer with him. “I was sick a couple weekends ago, and I was eating toast, and Aleeah says, ‘Oh, I know how to make that.’ I said, ‘How the hell do you know how to make toast? How do you know how to use a toaster?'” he told his first wife in a sneak peek clip of Thursday's new episode. “She said, ‘Because my mommy’s a sleepyhead, and I have to make myself breakfast.'”
Though Corey was startled by the incident, Leah wasn’t fazed. “It’s not really that big of a deal,” the 23-year-old mother said.
But Corey didn’t give up. He said they were tardy to school too often. While he would allow two or three late days per month, 10 was unacceptable. “If I have them for that extra little bit, that’s an extra little bit I don’t have to worry about,” he tells his former wife. “I don’t want you to take that the wrong way, but that’s time I don’t have to worry, are they tardy? Are they late? Are they there? Are they not?”
Leah wasn’t ready to give up control. “It feels like someone has a plot against me or something like that,” she said. “At the end of the day, it’s my kids, my life. I have to do what I have to do.”
Both Corey and her second husband, Jeremy Calvert, have moved on. They even showed up with their new significant others to the “Teen Mom 2” Season 6 reunion special, according to the Ashley’s Reality Roundup. The four posed for a picture together and labeled it “#LifeAfterLeah.” Corey was with his wife, Miranda, and Jeremy was with his new girlfriend, Brooke Wehr.
The new episode of “Teen Mom 2” airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
