News flash: Sometimes reality TV isn’t as real as its producers would like us to think.
That’s the hard lesson it sounds like Leah Messer is learning right now. She called out Teen Mom 2 on social media after Monday’s episode, saying it was edited to manipulate her storyline and make her life seem more dramatic than it really is.
In the scene Messer says was unfairly edited, she’s sitting at a table having a few drinks with her ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, and discussing why their marriage fell apart.
“Like, you were the one person, I thought, like, I couldn’t imagine myself being with anyone else,” Messer tells Calvert in the emotional scene.
But despite her confession, Messer doesn’t get much of a response out of Calvert, who responds only with, “You buzzin’?”
“A little bit,” Messer tells him. “Because I don’t ever drink.”
Messer also apologized to Calvert for all of her “mistakes,” and he tells her that he “tried and gave up” on making the relationship work. Messer, who was in tears by that point in the conversation, tells Calvert, “So we shouldn’t have just gave up,” but according to the show, he doesn’t respond.
Now, Messer is saying that’s not quite how the conversation went, and that Calvert actually shared her feelings. On Tuesday, she tweeted about it, writing, “I’m 99.9 % sure those feelings were mutual. I could go in detail, but wont. Oh, how I love this fake a#% TV show. #SoOverIt”
This isn’t the first time that Messer has claimed Teen Mom 2 used editing tricks to create more drama in her life. In March, she tweeted, “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 life story isn’t enough.”
