Leah Messer Opens Up About Single Mom Misconceptions

Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer sat down with MTV news for an interview in which she combatted many of the misconceptions that come with being a single mother.

“Being a single mother is not easy,” said Messer in an interview with MTV News.

“The biggest misconceptions others have about single mothers is that they don’t have it all together. I feel like that’s wrong.”

Messer explained that due to the lack of support that a married couple would have, things are much harder for single moms. The Teen Mom 2 star does believe that not having the support strengthens singles mothers because they are forced to figure things out.

Of course there is no denying that being a single mom, especially a single Teen Mom is probably one of the hardest things to do in the world today.

Messer had some brief but useful words that can really go a long way in terms of inspiring other single mothers out there.

Do you agree with Messer? What are some misconceptions that you have heard about being a single mother? Let us know in the comments section.

Kailyn Lowry Goes About Life Normally Amidst Pregnancy Rumors

While some sites are still reporting baby rumors for Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, she is busy going on with her regular life.


“Kailyn Lowry has been battling pregnancy rumors for the past few months,” according to Inquisitr.

“Although the Teen Mom 2 star has denied the reports, she continues to hint about baby number three on social media. Is Lowry expecting another child?”

While many believe that Lowry has been hinting at baby number three, the Teen Mom 2 star hasn’t made a statement or even entertained the rumors.

There is no telling whether or not these rumors hold any truth but some sites have been quite relentless in their belief that she is indeed pregnant. Until she actually addresses the rumors they are just that.

So, while we await a response from Lowry we’re gonna go ahead and say that nothing is proven yet. We wouldn’t be surprised if Lowry isn’t pregnant.


Amber Portwood and Matt Baier Not Married

While fans began swirling with rumors of Amber Portwood and Matt Baier’s potential Las Vegas wedding, those rumors just weren’t true. While Portwood and her man did attend a wedding in Vegas, it sadly was not their own.

“Hi loves from Vegas again!! No we didn’t get married however we went to a wedding always sending love,” said Portwood in Twitter post that dispelled any hope of those who were hoping she and Baier got hitched.

The truth is, we’re not quite sure when Portwood and Baier plan to tie the knot, however, with all of the televised weddings from Teen Mom, it’s our feeling that they would also follow that trend.

In the meantime, Portwood and Baier seem to be very happy together and it surely showed in the photos from their Vegas trip. While we wait for an official wedding announcement from Portwood and Baier, check out a photo of the happy couple below.

Is Nathan’s Arrest Going To Be The Talk of Next Week’s Episode?

It looks like next’s weeks episode of Teen Mom 2 is going to have some fireworks involved. A preview for next week’s episode is hinting to the arrest of Nathan, Jenelle’s ex.


“In last week’s episode, we seen that Nathan made it clear how he felt for Jenelle. Apparently, Nathan told Jenelle’s friend that he thinks they’ll get back together one day, but when he later talked to his own friend (on camera), he said they would never ever get back together,” according to ComicBook.

“No matter what Nathan wants, David made it clear that he would fight for Jenelle. Either way, David and Jenelle didn’t seem to care how Nathan felt. They laughed about the situation, and David called Nathan a ‘little bitch.'”

Clearly that exchange wouldn’t sit well with Nathan but there is no telling whether it is the cause for his arrest. Things should be much clearer next week when the episode actually airs.

Fans might also remember that back in December of 2016, Nathan was arrested on multiple charges. However, feel free to speculate amongst yourselves until then.

You can check out the preview below and let us know your thoughts on what could have led to the arrest.
