Does 'Teen Mom' Leah Messer's New Man Make Her a Bad Mom?

One of the biggest heartbreaks from MTV's Teen Mom 2 was the Leah Messer and Corey Simms split/divorce, but now it seems, just three months later, Messer has a new man.

The new guy -- aspiring race-car driver Tyler Blankenship -- has his own set of baggage in the way of an ex-wife and a son of his own. It could be a match made in heaven, but the real question is: How on Earth does she have time to date?

As the single mom to a set of twin babies, one of whom has special needs, where is she coming up with the time to meet, court, and get into a relationship? It just seems like there are better uses of her time.

Not to say that single moms shouldn't date. They absolutely should and have every right to be happy and in a good relationship, but just a couple short months after splitting from a marriage that was supposed to be forever (aren't they all?), it seems a bit premature to be looking for another man.

If it's true, then more power to her. Maybe we will meet him on future episodes of the show. That said, I hope this doesn't interfere with raising her two daughters, since certainly she already has a hard task ahead of her with two babies and doing it on her own.

Also, it's just plain sad. I had high hopes for Leah and Corey. They're young, but he seemed devoted and they seemed in love and like they had good communication. I was hoping at least one of these couples would come out strong. Alas, it wasn't meant to be.

And if Teen Mom 2 is renewed, I am sure we will see a lot more of this drama.

Do you think she is dating too fast?
