The embattled Leah Messer of MTV’s Teen Mom 2 has been through the wringer, accused of every bad parenting move under the sun.

All of which she has made amazing excuses for.

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you’ve seen one troublesome incident after another involving Leah and her two concerned former spouses.

The twice divorced mother of three makes no apologies for any of the strange behavior and controversial parenting moves she’s exhibited.

Only the (dubious) explanations which we’ve documented below … and clearly have not succeeded in convincing fans, exes, or courts.

Leah lost custody to Corey Simms after a protracted battle, and while she later regained joint custody, she remains on shaky ground.

There’s also the whole Leah-T.R. Dues situation, which we don’t know what to make of these days (or any days), but gives us pause:

Is another live-in lover really what she needs?

We wish her the best, but we fear the worst, at least until she can be honest with herself and others and put her best foot forward in life.

With the new season underway, Leah’s struggles are once again under scrutiny, and her decision making skills under the MTV microscope. 

She claims she’s a victim of bad editing on behalf of producers – even Corey had her back on one occasion recently – but is that fair?

Can she really explain away ALL of these things? Isn’t a pattern like this impossible to ignore? Either way, we just hope she fights through it.

Just be strong, girl. You can do it. #believe
