8. Childhood

Fans who have followed Leah’s story are well aware that things are not always easy for the young mom of three, and as it turns out she is no stranger to battling the odds. Leah’s mother, Delta Dawn Spears welcomed Messer when she was only 17 herself and had only $200 in her bank account, and according to reports from Radar Online, they got by by using food stamps for many, many years. While Dawn was able to keep her family afloat which included Leah as well as another son and daughter, it wasn’t easy and in 2005 she filed for bankruptcy. It seems things have improved financially for the family in the years since, thanks in large part to Leah’s Teen Mom 2 fame.

7. Unhealthy Household

A little while ago, an anonymous former camera operator got very candid when discussing his time filming the Teen Mom stars in an online Q&A and revealed that Leah’s house was extremely unsanitary. According to the former camera operator, Leah’s house was by far the worst and even felt as if someone should call child protective services because of the state of the living conditions. “Filthy houses (dog poop on the floor, bloody tampons sitting in a corner for months, weeks old food everywhere, etc.) one of the worst is Leah, filthiest person I’ve met.” Leah’s inability to keep her house or car in order finally pushed her now ex-husband Jeremy Calvert over the edge last season. Now that the twin girls are getting older, they too are speaking out. In different scenes they have complained about there being no food in the house and being hungry, which has caused a lot of concern from viewers.
