“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans famously struggled with drug use on the hit MTV show, but, after the most recent episode aired, it seems Leah Messer is battling her own problem with pills. Messer admitted she took an unnamed medicine prescribed by doctors, but the way it influenced her shocked and even angered some fans. Others took the opportunity to take a dig at the "TM2" star.
Last episode, she confessed to husband Jeremy Calvert her prescription meds made her feel woozy, but one scene on Wednesday in particular really surprised fans. Messer was at work at the tanning salon and spa “Tanfastiq” in West Virginia where she admits she felt “super drowsy” then calls her daughter Ali’s physical therapist, Kim.
“I forgot what I was going to say now,” the mother of three said on the phone via Radar Online, as she struggled to keep her eyes open. “What do you think I should do about the wheelchair. . .” she added and her words began to slur. At one point, MTV started to use subtitles because the blonde reality star’s words could not be understood.
“Like they even make a lower dye and stuff, instead of putting all that stuff in a kid’s head,” she mumbled. Kim eventually ended the call and said she could not here Messer.
Fans took to Twitter after the episode, with many pointing out that Messer felt like she was on drugs simply because she was. Some of their comments have been posted below:
