Leah Calvert IS Returning to 'Teen Mom 2' but You'll Never Guess Why

Teen Mom 2After getting us all weepy by saying she was leaving Teen Mom 2, Leah Calvert has changed her mind, and will be back for the new season, along with costars Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, and Kailyn Lowry.


According to Radar Online, our favorite West Virginian on MTV signed on to star in Season 6 of the smash hit reality show, after previously announcing that she wouldn't be joining her girls.

To say the 22-year-old mom of three has some personal drama going on at the moment is a bit of an understatement, to say the least. She and her hubby Jeremy Calvert are on the brink of divorce (he may have even filed papers already), she may or may not have a problem with prescription painkillers, and she's involved in a custody battle for her 4-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah with ex-husband Corey Simms. Plus you know, she has toddler Addy running around too, not to mention dealing with Ali's special needs from her muscular dystrophy. Hot. Mess.

Anyway, an insider for the show told Radar, "Leah will be back next season after all." This is after Leah tweeted just a couple of weeks ago, "I hope my girls continue to move on with TM2. I wish them the best."

At the time, a source said, "Leah is doing everything she can to keep her family together, including leaving reality TV." Well, apparently paying the bills is more important for her family than stepping away from reality TV, because the rumor is "she needs the money," according to someone in the know.

I can't say that I blame her. Providing for your family is kind of important, and hopefully she can be a good example of what it means to be strong and pull yourself together to get things done for her daughters. She needs all the support she can get!

And let's face it -- Teen Mom 2 just wouldn't be the same without Leah's drama.

Do you think Leah made the right choice returning to the show after all?
