MTV’s Teen Moms: All 8 Ranked Worst To Best
6. Amber Portwood
While Jenelle has always attempted to improve and never seems to get there, Amber Portwood really has made leaps and bounds in order to be a better mother to her daughter, Leah. Amber definitely had a rough patch, but her main focus in getting treatment and bettering herself has always been in order to regain custody of Leah. Although she has made progress, it is hard to fully get behind Amber considering even now her daughter complains that when she does visit her all Amber wants to do is sleep or sit on the couch. It doesn’t help that Amber has also now entered into a somewhat questionable relationship with Matt Baier, who according to reports has numerous children of his own that he doesn’t provide for and has a documented history of trying to communicate with many of the Teen Mom stars on social media, making it quite clear to many that he is simply using Amber for the fame. Needless to say, it seems her focus is more on defending her love life and relationship with Matt more than Leah now.
5. Leah Messer
At first, Leah Messer was one of the most respected of all the moms. She was down-to-earth and took all of the challenges that she faced in stride which included having twins, divorcing her daughters’ father Corey within six months, and also having one daughter with a rare disability. Unfortunately after welcoming her third child with her second husband Jeremy Calvert, things really unraveled for Leah who was seen slipping into depression and anxiety which led to a drug scandal and finally a trip to a treatment facility to deal with her mental illnesses. Even though she has been doing better since going for treatment, Leah is still alarming audiences with the episodes in which she is seen not feeding her children dinner until nearly midnight, not giving them breakfast before school, and constantly texting and driving while seemingly not fully awake. Her house is always a complete mess, and it seems she is still having a hard time bouncing back from her two divorces and adjusting to being a single mother to three children.
