'Teen Mom 2' Star Leah Messer Slams MTV's Editing, Claims the Show 'Betrayed' Her
By Raphael Chestang
Leah Messer is firing back at MTV after feeling like the network portrayed her inaccurately on Teen Mom 2.
The 23-year-old single mom took to Twitter to air out her grievances after Monday's season seven premiere showed her rushing her twin daughters Aleeah and Aliannah out the door to go to school without breakfast and giving her youngest daughter, Adalynn, packets of sugar to eat at a restaurant.
"My point exactly," Messer wrote. "It's so sad how the person behind the editing can even live a happy life by editing to manipulate the audience watching. It makes me feel like my story just isn't enough."
"I did hit rock bottom but I came out of it and I was willing to air it all because if just one person watched and reached out for help even when they feel so alone that's all I cared about because I could never imagine anyone feeling the pain, hurt, depression and anxiety that I was suffering from. It would break my heart!" Messer wrote. "I wanted to bring awareness and help others and if MTV couldn't share that then I will do it on my own the way God wants me to!"
"It hurts to feel betrayed by the ones I thought I could trust with my story," Messer wrote. "It goes to show you how 'The Entertainment World' really is and I guess everyone will see where I really am."
Through it all, Messer assured fans that she is in a good place and that she loves all her fans. In fact, she has been posting happy pictures on Instagram of her three daughters all week.
