'Teen Mom' Dad Corey Simms Is Addicted to Teen Moms


Corey Simms Leah MesserEver feel like watching Teen Mom and its spin-off Teen Mom 2 is like taking a bath in a giant tub of depression? We had a bright spot there for all of five minutes when Leah Messer and Corey Simms, parents of those delicious little twins, got married in a redneck version of a white wedding. But Corey is apparently more addicted to fame than happily ever after.

In the midst of a divorce (which will apparently play out on the next season of Teen Mom 2; set your DVRs) for cheating on his wife, the man in the camo hat is already hooking up with Nikkole Paulun. The teen mom from Michigan appeared on the second season of 16 & Pregnant. For those keeping track, that's the same season that introduced the world to Leah, Corey, and their baby girls.

OK, so they're divorcing, they're free to date. But this is America. There are plenty of girls out there who haven't appeared on MTV and don't have "verified" Facebook accounts for their fans to get updates on their babies (and baby daddies). If he'd picked one of them, we wouldn't have to wonder if Corey's following the Levi Johnston rebound road: do ANYTHING to stay in the spotlight.

What's next? Playgirl? With that ridiculous hat covering his privates?

Corey was the dad we all thought had it going on. Watching him cry during Leah's episode of 16 & Pregnant, worried that he wouldn't get to spend time with his daughters if they remained broken up, I was choking up myself. He was just that dedicated to his kids. Then we saw him practically push Leah down the aisle because he was just "so" committed to marriage. But the speed by which the marriage fell apart -- ostensibly because of his open pants policy -- makes you wonder if he was committed to family or committed to keeping himself in the spotlight. 

He played with Leah's heart to get her right where he wanted her then, and he's apparently STILL sending her flirty texts. And now there's Nikkole, who is 17 years old (she'll be 18 in September), and has her own dating drama to deal with. Ex-boyfriend Josh, father to little Lyle, was caught forging checks this spring and is now in jail, AND behind on his child support. You couldn't craft a more perfect "victim" for a player than the needy teen mom.

Have you done a 180 on your opinion of Corey? Are there any bright spots LEFT on this series to keep you watching?

Oh my god I can not believe this. I am from dundee which is 10 minutes from Monroe, where Nikkole is from. I hate that this couple didn't work out they seemed like the one couple that would actually survive the teen pregnancy!

wow. didnt see that coming. I didnt know that corey and leah's marriage broke up because of infedelity either though... I keep watching because I find it interesting how these teens think, what goes through their minds. Im only 26 and its funny because I can remember thinking as they do and realize, wow, teens really do think they've got it all figured out unil life slaps that stupid grin right off their faces.

this doesn't surprise me. Leah was pushed down the aisle by corey so to speak. So i am not surprised their relationship did not last. He is young,immature,and a fame whore. So of course he is going to get with someone else from the show.

I didn't like nikkole at all...she is stupid and kept letting herself get pushed around just like chelsea and adam. Leah and corey though I thought that they might have had a shot. Corey is a jerk but there are 2 sides to every story. We just haven't found out hers yet.

Jeanne, as a loyal reader of yours, I should let you know that the Teen Mom Talk website is nothing but lies. The author of that site has no facts and never has. She's another random girl trying to get her 15 minutes of fame by stalking the Teen Moms. Please don't be discredited by that sorry excuse of a website. It's pretty much a tabloid website. Bending the truth to get more reads. Sad, really. If you read the comments, Leah asked for both articles the author wrote to be taken down. She left them available. She's nothing to believe.

I can't believe it!!! i thought Corey was the best, but he is a stupid.

Jennifer McQueen

I never thought of Corey that way
"playing with Leah's heart to keep himself in the spotlight" but the more I think about it the more it makes sense. I'm just glad they realized they aren't right for each other instead of wasting years and making themselves miserable as well as their girls.

I think there both stupid and they shouldn't be doing this crap all there is to say is there both very immature and really stupid

I wish these poor kids would've known what life was going to be like with this stupid TV show! They get absolutely no privacy and lies thrown every which way! Even after this article I still think Corey is an amazing dad and great person. And he didn't put a gun to Leahs head to make her marry him it was a mutual decision. But how else are the tabloids going to make money?
