Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer had a bit of a breakdown on a recent episode and she finally explains exactly what caused it.
“My relationship with Corey has grown, and we are getting along so well — the last thing I need is Corey being mad at me for being late,” she explained, according to In Touch Weekly.
“I was so worried about what they were going to say, what they were going to think… Like, I’ve heard I’m an incompetent mother for three years now — that hurts a little bit.”
A series of unfortunate mishaps have been caught on camera and Messer seems to be weary of being called an “incompetent mother.” It all caught up to her in the episode as she was visibly upset to the point where she needed to take a minute to gather herself.
“I think because MTV was here — and this never happens — it made me feel that much worse,” she explained, according to the report.
“Because I was like, ‘Great. This is what everybody already sees, this is what they’re gonna assume, this is what they’re going to assume, this is going to be twisted.’ So I was thinking all that in my head — like I’m in such a good place, and for all this to happen, I felt like my Saturday routine was f**ked up the one time that we’re filming — so everyone is going to think this is how my life is all the time, like they do every other time, so that affects me. It does. A lot of stuff with the show does.”
It looks like the pressure of expectations from Teen Mom 2 critics and fans has been affecting Messer in a much bigger way than anyone may have thought.
