‘Teen Mom’ Leah Messer’s Wedding Was No Better Than Kim Kardashian’s

GossipMonger 6

leah messerTeen Mom Leah Messer really wanted to be teen bride Leah Messer, which is why, she says, she and Corey Simms rushed into marriage. After having twin girls together, the couple thought they'd make things perfect by rounding out their kids with a house, and a marriage. But, it didn't work out that way. After six months of wedded non-bliss, Leah filed for divorce. Now, she's talking about what caused the riff. On a Teen Mom 2 after-show, Leah explains that it wasn't the cheating, nor the bank-account plundering, that made them end their relationship.

Orly, Leah? Then what was it??

I do think we rushed into the marriage quickly. We just wanted the family, like husband and wife, and the kids. Both of us knew that we shouldn't have got married, because we were both doing things that we shouldn't have been doing at the time. Right a week before we got married. But it was like, we're gonna do it anyway.

Either Leah is your typical idiotic 18-year-old (because we're all pretty freaking stupid at that age) or she's a cold-hearted, manipulative, business woman.

Leah's wedding brought her a lot of attention, not only on the show, but from magazines and blogs, as well. She got paid for stories and photos. She was likely able to make a profit from her wedding. And since you can't really get any repeat business on a wedding (it's supposed to be a one-time thing, after all), you have to get a divorce to start the cycle all over again.

Her story line on the show is more complicated and therefore more interesting now that she's navigating the end of a marriage. She can sell more stories to magazines about her divorce drama. She's able, once again, to reap financial benefits from her histrionic life choices.

Sound familiar?

Kim Kardashian blazed this trail when her wedding to Kris Humphries netted her a reported $18 million. After the divorce, Keeping Up With the Kardashians has had some of its highest ratings to date. Now, people can't get enough of her new relationship with Kanye; plus, she got to sit down with Oprah. Cha ching, cha ching, cha ching.

Do I think Leah's smart enough or calculating enough to exploit her personal life for financial gain? Eh, don't think so. It doesn't matter, though, because whether she's doing it willingly or not, she's going to be laughing all the way to the bank.

What do you think?

I'm sorry but I think she's blind to why they really for divorced. She cheated, again, with Robbie. It broke Corey's heart and he ended it but she filed before he did. She always said she tried to fix it but from what they show she is the one who shattered it. And he still got a truck. So really was the bickering worth it in the end?

HAHAH I love the analogy never really thought of it before but it makes sense. I used to love leah but after being dissapointed by her apparent inability to keep her knees together and destroying her family I am now rooting for team corey. I do have to say this one thing in her defense though.. she did try to get out of it.... she did try to tell corey she wasn't ready for marriage.

I think it is a little bit of both. It would be completely niave for anyone to think that this is all %100 real. No matter what, she is an idiotic teenager because all teenagers are idiotic. Honestly, it's terrifying to me that any young person would get married. I am 26 and no where close to who I was when I was 18.

I think leah is a whore who needs to stop having babies and get on birth control and stop getting married and cheating all the time

when you're a teen mom of twins, you want to do what's best for them - even if you are doubting yourself.  Corey's a good dude.  They tried, but they were too young to handle their relationship- let alone a marriage.  it's a shame that it crumbled.
