Teen Mom’s Leah Messer films her own scenes for show with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert during pandemic – The Sun
TEEN Mom 2's Leah Messer isn’t letting the issue of a pandemic stop her from carrying on with filming for the show.
The 28-year-old star posted a short video to her Instagram page of her and ex-husband Jeremy Calvert shooting scenes in the kitchen.
Leah and her girls, 10-year-old twins Aliannah and Aleeah, and seven-year-old Adalynn, also revealed in her Instagram Stories they are having a photoshoot competition.
The mom-of-three told her fans the girls wanted to dress her up in different outfits and with various backgrounds.
After posting the different looks, her followers could choose their favourite photos and declare one of her kids the winner.
Leah shot to fame on the MTV series back in 2010, with her struggle to raise her children documented on camera.
And now Leah is releasing a tell-all book where she shares painful parts of her life.
Speaking to People, the mother-of-three explains: "My mom didn’t understand why I screamed every time I went to the babysitter’s house.
"It was because I was being sexually abused there, and my mom, she didn’t have much support.
"Reliving those times was really hard, but it was also therapeutic for me.
"I could go back and really truly allow myself to heal from the child abuse that I went through."
Leah also spoke out on becoming addicted to pills when she was prescribed painkillers to help with backache following Adalynn's birth in 2013.
Following the breakdown of her marriage to her youngest daughter's father, Jeremy Calvert, in 2015, she admitted to taking the medication before driving down a hill in West Virginia with her foot on the gas.
In the book, Leah reveals that her speed reached 110mph, adding: "It would be so easy to drive my car over the edge.
"Then it would all be over. No more worries. No more failure. No more pain. Everyone would be better off."
Leah pulled over after she thought of her children through her "lifetime of tears", with the star telling People: "It was definitely a turning point for me when I realized that I was legit trying to take my own life.
"The car was going so fast and I was watching it and I was so angry. That was it for me. That’s when I realized like: 'All right, Leah, you’ve got to do something.'"
Teen Mom 2's producer, Larry Musnik, had left a concerned message for the star when she arrived home that day after seeing footage of the car.
Leah says in her book that Larry had already been trying to convince her to go to rehab, and this time she listened and checked into a facility in Arizona where she was able to get sober.
She explained: "There are different tracks that you can go to in a facility. For me, it was like laying that foundation for me to be the person that I am today."
